It was the most simple stress-free process and the results made me feel gorgeous on my anniversary!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
I ordered the 8 and the 10, thinking the 8 would fit. I usually wear about a 4, but I know because o my height and bust it's often hard to fit so I figured a 6 or 8 would work. (The six wasn't available!)
I'm a busty, taller girl so I wanted to make sure it would be long enough and large enough in the right areas. Well, I wish I could have gone smaller. The dress was wonderful, except in the stomach area. The lower belly area was very saggy, as if I should have had a little more meat to me to fill it out. The saggyness gave the appearance of a beer belly, despite the fact that I don't have one! I had to fiddle with it a lot, to adjust it on my hips to try and make it less bulky. The fit elsewhere was perfect and it made my bum look great! (No spanks needed! Awesome!) I was impressed with the length, it came to about three inches above my knee and I expected it to be much shorter. Great for ladies of height!
The material is thicker, which is nice for the cool crisp Pittsburgh air I experienced. I paired it with a Maroon scarf that has pops of color, to stay warm when outside. It complimented the deep navy of the dress very nicely. Tan pumps on my feet, made the dress stand out more. I went with more simple jewelry, though I tried on a silver statement neckless I own that looked AMAZING with it. It just made it a little more fancy than I wanted for the evening. I still recommend trying that if you have the right style statement piece. My simple drop neckless was perfect and dainty with the dress, too.
I will definitely rent again, but probably a different dress or a smaller size of this one - hopefully the "belly" space won't be there on a smaller size.
