first RTR rental. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful dress or easier ordering and return.
This dress is beautiful! It is very well made, a heavy, navy fabric. This dress is very form fitting in the torso but super forgiving and flattering for girls with wider hips, such as me. The fabric has no stretch. I ordered the size 38 (2) and size 40 (4). Both fit well, but the 2 fit like a glove, so that's what I wore to a fairly informal wedding. I did need help putting it on because the zipper is sewn in at the bottom, so you cannot unzip it all the way and I could barely get it over my shoulders.
The length is a little shorter than I usually wear, about mid thigh. Keep in mind, I'm pretty short. However, I did not find myself tugging on it or feeling uncomfortable at all. As I said, the fabric is heavy, so it does not ride or fly up at all.
This dress was pretty small in the bust. Bustier girls may want to order a larger size as backup.
I got lots of compliments on this dress, from friends and strangers.
My only regret is not getting to keep this dress. Absolutely loved it and would rent is again.
