Incredibly beautiful - great fit!
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was SO beautiful - definitely as impressive in person as it looks in pictures. The dress is actually a lot lighter than I anticipated it being, making it really easy to wear. I'm 5'7" and with 3" heels the dress skimmed the floor. It was a tiny bit longer than I'd wear if it were my own, but the 4L was definitely the way to go, as I'm sure the regular would have been a bit short. I'm a tried and true size 4, though I sometimes find that the bust of a 4 is too small on me. In this case, it was actually a little large, and I wear a 34D. I planned on going without a bra - the top is thick, boned and well-strucured. However, I had to put one on to fill the gap between me and the dress. The only other thing to consider is that, because it's fitted through the hips and mid-thigh, if you're wider you're definitely going to have to unzip and take the dress down every time you go to the bathroom. I was able to shimmy it over my hips (thanks, Spanx), but if it had been even a little tighter I wouldn't have been able to do that. I wore a big statement bib necklace with it, which really made the dress look extra special. I'd totally wear it again to another event. I also picked out no fewer than 5 other RTR dresses at the black tie wedding I attended! Great experience, so easy to order and return, and will definitely be using the service again. Thanks, RTR!
