So pretty!!! Will almost definitely rent again!
I wore this to a rehearsal dinner, and I loved it! It's a very versatile dress -- I wasn't sure how dressy the attire would be, so I tried it on with multiple pairs of shoes, and it looked pretty good with all of them! It looked really nice with nude heels, but I ended up going with a tan ankle boot that dressed it down a little, and I got a lot of compliments.
I'm a pretty true size 4, but when I go for a different size it's normally a 2, so I went against RTR's stylist advice and chose the 2 as my backup. I won't be doing that again! As soon as I pulled out the dresses, they seemed smaller than usual, so I tried on the 4, and it was pretty tight. I didn't even try the 2, and I definitely would have worn the 6 if I'd had it. The areas where it ran small were the arms, shoulder, and torso (thankfully the hips and thighs weren't an issue since it floats away there). I have a larger bust, so the dress was borderline uncomfortably tight around my rib cage. My arms aren't normally a fit issue, but the sleeves were really tight too. But I still had a great time in the dress, and I don't think anyone but me noticed the dress was a little tight.
I would definitely rent this again in a larger size! I would even buy it if it goes on sale, because it's one of those dresses that would work for almost any event -- it's fun, pretty, and classy!
