2.7 seconds to my first, of many, compliments!
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
My boyfriend and I walked into the wedding we were attending, and the first person (male) who we saw said to me, "I love your dress", then turned to my boyfriend and said, "You girl is smoking!". That's pretty much how the evening went.
I had three events to go to this weekend, and rented 3 dresses, but I wore this one to each. I dressed it up for the wedding with some gold accessories and heels, but dressed it down for a daytime concert event with some flats and a cardigan. Everywhere we went, people wanted to know where I had gotten the dress and told me I looked stunning (which is always nice to hear ;)
The dress is a thick material, and it's stretchy, so it hugs every curve that you want to accentuate and hides every curve that you definitely do not want to accentuate. The sleeves are a little tight in the armpit, despite size (small or medium); I really could have gone either way with regard to which size I wore, but I ended up going with the small because it was a little bit shorter (hey, why not?) and it fit me a bit more snugly so the fabric didn't bunch up like it did with the medium.
I thought it would be a bit scratchy because of the sparkly red part of the dress, but it wasn't. It was totally comfortable.
The only - and I do mean only - downside was that it sort of rode up a bit as I wore it. I found myself pulling the medium down a lot more than the small; maybe because the small was a bit tighter, it stayed in place better. It never got to the point where it was dangerously, or inappropriately short, but I could still feel it getting ... draftier.
Love love love this dress. I want to keep it, but I think RTR frowns upon such things ...
