Glam and Sparkly, But Did Not Arrive Until Very Last Minute
The dress deserves a great review: it was really sparkly, glamorous, and flattering, and I received a number of compliments on it throughout my event (I wore it to a fundraising gala for work). I am tall (5'9") and the length was just right - not too short at all. The zipper was a bit tricky getting all the way up, so I had to recruit my husband to help me. Once I was in the dress, though, I felt very secure and sexy. I am not very busty, so I ended up wearing a bra to give the girls a little more "oomph." All-in-all, a beautiful, comfortable dress that deserves its thousands of great reviews.
While the dress was beautiful and comfortable, I was a little disappointed with my RTR experience and am not sure I will order again. This was my first time doing RTR, and I have a number of friends/colleagues who absolutely rave about it. However, I had challenges with receiving my dress (it was supposed to come on Thursday and did not show up until Saturday at 12PM, and my event was Saturday at 3:00PM! Thanks God it fit, otherwise I would have been in a real pickle.) and communicating with customer service via the chat function, which would kick me off every time I would start typing out my issue to a customer service person who was supposedly "online" in the chat. I reached out via email to customer service, and they said UPS made a mistake and shipped the dress back to the fulfillment center, so they offered me a 15% discount on my next order for the inconvenience, but I am not sure I will order again. It was too stressful not knowing and trusting if/when my dress was going to show up.
