I wore this dress to my cousin's 5:30 wedding. Totally appropriate: not too dressy for a pre-cocktail time, but not a "church dress" either (In the South we are very careful of these things.). I loved the green color, especially as I have green eyes. I loved the fit; it is very flattering and feminine. I normally wear an 8, but I saw the other reviews and ordered the 6 and the 4. The 4 actually fit the best, but it was a bit short, especially for a wedding, so I wore the 6. The sides (under the arms) are definitely low, as others mentioned, so I had to use the included garment tape to hold it up and not be too revealing, especially as the 6 was big. You cannot wear a bra with this dress (would show on sides and back), so I used some "invisible" sticky bra pads that I already had. I also used the coupon code for the free accessory and wore the green earrings, which were darling. This was my first experience with Rent the Runway, and I couldn't have been more pleased. I also used the $25 second dress option for a dress for the bridesmaids' luncheon, and I loved it, too. RTR made this so EASY and very user-friendly. I am quite pleased and will DEFINITELY use it again. Great concept, ladies—wish I'd thought of it!
