Wish I didn't have to send it back?
As an FYI, this was my first RTR and I have some mixed feelings about it. First off, I loved this dress. This was an awesome dress for a fall wedding! Fit perfectly and very true to size. I wasn't able to get a free 2nd size so I was glad this one worked out. The cut and color (dark blue, nude pink and lighter blue pattern) was great and loved the secret pockets! Normally with a pocketed dress it adds weight but these didn't at all. The fabric was also very think and laid wonderfully.
The reason I did not give it the full 5 stars was because I was disappointed in the fact that I had no back up (and since this was my first RTR, I would have liked to be a little more protected) and...the state of the dress. The fabric was pilled and looked as though in a few areas had pulls, but I am not sure. You could, most definitely tell that it has been worn ALOT though. The other reviewers stated that it was made of a thick material and they are very correct. I was able to wear it and not feel like like the polling was too noticeable. But I was kind of sad that my first designer dress to rent was not as I expected and seemed like it may have been on its last leg on the rent scene. But I guess that's how all of these dresses work.
I was very lucky that the size I picked worked because there was no backup and that the wear didn't show up too much. I hope going forward to have a few more fail-safe options in place so in case the dress is in real bad shape or doesn't fit, to know I have options. All around, a semi pleasant first time. Thank you.
