In an unfamiliar place, there's always RTR!
Meant for a New York, winter wedding (I'm a West Coaster), I needed a dress to show up at my hotel in another state - and it did! All the travel woes, worries over hairspray exploding, SPANX tights ripping, and the craziness of a family wedding made the bliss of ordering from RTR that much better! The dress arrived on time, ready to go, and fit perfectly.
The dress is most certainly fitted through the body with a small amount of give. SPANX gave the smooth look/feel that made the dress fit even more comfortably. Ruching allowed for minor "flaw" cover up and created a textured, exciting look on an otherwise simple dress. The hem hit at mid thigh and the bust felt a bit tight, but nothing too serious. Color is a bit deeper than pictured, like other reviewers have said, between traditional red and oxblood.
A long day into a night of ceremony, dancing, drinking, eating and various modes of transportation - the dress still held up beautifully.
