Pretty color and draping
First, let me say that I was not able to wear this dress. I received it since the original dress I ordered arrived damaged and RTR offered to send me an additional dress if I wanted to chose between this one and the original. I was super excited when I got this, because the dress and color are so pretty. The dress fit fine, however, there were two major problems with it. The fabric is SUPER thin and sheer. I did know this from reading the reviews, and did have appropriate foundations to wear. However, the zipper, which I am assuming was possibly a replacement zipper or had at least been repaired recently, was bulky and was sewn down at the hip in a very strange way. It was rolled over and then sewn down, so there was a very large lump. If the fabric was not so sheer and thin, or was a different style, this might not have been a problem. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the fabric, this caused the fabric to pull and created an incredibly unflattering effect that made my hip look enormous and pointy. It also had two large tags that showed right through the material on the other side. I did try the dress on with spanx, as well as with a slip, to see if that made a difference but it didn't. I was so disappointed because it truly is a beautiful dress. I don't recall anyone mentioning this problem in any other reviews, so it may be a new issue. I ended up wearing the original damaged dress. Otherwise, the dress is a pretty color and the draping is gorgeous!
