Beautiful material, best for taller folks with slimmer hips/fuller bust
This was picked out by a RTR stylist as a backup dress when my original dress didn't make it to me in time for my flight to the location of the wedding I was attending. I was sent the 4 and the 6; the 4 was too tight in the hips by far but fit better at the waist and bust, whereas the 6 fit over my hips and was a bit loose on top and didn't cinch my waist as much as would have been optimally flattering. However, I got a padded strapless bra to wear with it, and that filled it out a bit. The looser waist also made it easier to sit and eat and not get uncomfortable. However, the sleeve-type top part was a bit looser than would be ideal, as it's definitely made for someone with a longer torso. In sum, it wasn't the perfect dress, but it definitely worked out, and I would even consider renting it again for the right occasion. This would be perfect for someone a few inches taller with a less pear-shaped body than mine (straight up and down, or fuller bust). Would work for all seasons.
