Elegant, unique, and just the right amount of sexy!
This dress was amazing and perfect for the black tie gala we attended. I was looking for something that was classy (since we were attending with my boss) but not boring or too prom-y! In an event of 600 people, no one had a dress that even looked similar and I received several compliments throughout the evening. The other reviewers were right on about the waist - there is no give or stretch. Also, I found the solid underneath skirt to be a little on the short side when I sat down. The 8R was not available as a backup, but I would have liked to try it just for comparison. The length of the long skirt portion of the 6R was perfect for me with heels. I am super pear shaped and also just had a baby, but the 6 worked on top and gave me a more generous fit on the bottom. With all the pleats, the sheer skirt has a lot of material so just keep an eye on it when you sit down or go up an escalator. Overall, this dress was perfection and I felt so special wearing it. This was my first Rent the Runway experience and I will definitely be coming back for future rentals - the process was so fun and easy!
