Fit in perfectly among the spring flowers & I was able to hold my own in an extremely stylish crowd
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I picked this dress as I wanted to wear bold colors to a garden party and needed a dress with turquoise accents to match my shoes and clutch, so this dress seemed perfect. All the reviews on RTR were very positive & I was reassured. After trying it on at the RTR showroom, however, I had my doubts, as it seemed a bit flimsy and the dress I tried was rather worn, but the dress I received for my rental was in perfect condition, and my usual size 4 fit perfectly and comfortably. The fabric is extremely pleasant to wear and cool on a hot night, the underskirt is light, but heavy enough to avoid any wind-related accidents. I recommend wearing it with a bra, as the top provides little support, but thankfully the style allows wearing it with a regular bra. It's fitted on top and has enough waist as not to look baggy, but there's some room to spare, if you needed to hide a little bit of belly.
The many colors (turquoise, light green, pinkish peach, coral/red, black & lavender) are a lot of fun as they allow many different combinations with accessories. I find they don't come out properly on all the pictures: in reality they are just right - bright, but not garish.
