Did not fit at all - not for my body type
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented this for a fall semi-formal party at my school. I usually wear a 0 or a 2, so I rented those. However, neither fit over my hips (and I don't have that large of hips to begin with). The customer service was wonderful - I had called them in a panic since my event was the next night, and they sent over the next two sizes up (the 4 and the 6), arriving that afternoon. This also turned out to be a disaster - the 4 was still tight in the hips, although it fit well in the chest. The 6 fit over my hips but sagged in my chest area. Also, as other reviews have mentioned, the fabric gathering in the front/off to the side didn't sit right.
Overall, this was just not for my body type - would recommend for more slim-hipped or straight-figured people. Too bad - this was a beautiful dress (but with NO stretch - beware!), in an absolutely gorgeous color. I ended up wearing something I already owned and returning for merch credit. Props to the customer service team, though!
