Beautiful, but a little worn
I rented this as a backup dress for a date, and ended up going with my initial choice. I don't know if it's because of a lot of dry cleaning or what, but the lace at the top looked a little worn and sort of ratty - there were lots of strings coming off it and it didn't really lay flat at the ends. The dress is more of a winter white/cream color in person, not as light as it looks in the photo. The material is thick and textured, so it would be great for winter events when it's chilly out. I rented the 0 - it hugged in the right places for me, but there isn't any give in the fabric, so I would say ladies with larger chests should probably go up a size. The dress ended just below my kneecap, so it was a little long for my taste, but would look good on a slightly taller person.
