Beautiful dress that made me stand out and feel glamorous all night!
I loved this dress! It felt glamorous, yet the material made it feel light and appropriate for an outdoor wedding. It sparkled brilliantly in photos and on the dance floor. I also appreciated that due to the loose way it hang from the waist, I could eat and didn't have to worry about it being too tight around the middle. Found a great necklace from Forever 21 of all places, that tied the whole look together.
I'm glad I did my research and ordered a second size because based on other reviews, I thought the 2R may fit. It was a tad too tight, however, but the 4R fit like a glove! I was also worried about the length of this dress as well because I have a relatively short torso and long legs, but didn't need to be since it grazed the floor perfectly with flats ( I'm 5'10 and wore flats so if you are of similar height and interested in heels you may need to look into a different size).
My one complaint is that it was quite tight in the bust. The points on the bust kept digging into my chest to the point that I needed to adjust it every so often. Slightly uncomfortable, but not bad enough to ding it a star.
Overall, loved my first experience with Rent the Runway and will definitely use again for the next big occasion!
