I loved rocking out in a NYC black-tie wedding! The dress lived up to the special occasion. However, the best thing was watching one of my best friends celebrate her wedding to her beloved!
The dress turned heads and received so many compliments. I felt like a walking advertisement for RTR when people asked about the dress. This was worn to a black-tie wedding reception. I agree, the dress is snug along the side - highly recommend getting a second person to zip you in if possible. I did not have an issue with the bust. The slit in front is quite high, so it flows beautifully when walking and shows a great deal of leg (up to a little above the knee). The only problematic thing was sitting down. You definitely need to cover your legs since the front slit does not close. I simply used the tablecloth or napkin to cover my legs at the table, and a jacket over my lap while in a NYC cab. Definitely need 3-4 inch heels. I wore 4-inch heels and the dress skimmed the floor ever so lightly, but once you're walking, the dress just flows behind you and does not drag. The dress arrived wrinkled in shipping, but wrinkles came out quickly with steam from a bathroom shower. Loved the dress! My full-length photos did not come out doing the dress justice - hopefully I will find some good ones to post later.
