A great, classy dress for a lovely wedding!
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first time renting a dress from RTR! I usually stay away from online shopping because I'm a curvy girl. I have more restrictions in terms of fit. However, I read great reviews of this website, and thought I should give it a try.My decision was completely worth it!
The nice thing about this website was seeing all of the women model their dresses. I was able to read the reviews from the curvier women and have a better idea of the fit. The reviews I read for this dress were very accurate.
I wanted a red dress that was classy, but still cute and sexy. College friends of mine were getting married at the end of summer. This dress really did the job.
The fit was perfect. I only got the size 12 (since I was renting another dress). The RTR online representative said that since I usually wear 10-12 dresses, the 12 would work for me.
In the chest area, it was a bit tight. It did create a bit of cleavage. However, for this event, it worked for me. At the waist, it fit nicely. For dresses, I usually wear spanx. I didn't really need it for this one, though. I still wore mine, just to feel extra polished. The bottom potion of the dress was great for me! I have bigger hips, so this skirt was able to hide all of that.
My only complaint was that the lining of the dress shows when you sit down. I kept trying to pull the dress or place my purse on my lap to hide the lining. At the reception, I didn't care since I was mostly dancing haha.
I highly recommend this dress, especially for a wedding. It's very pretty, but still proper for a church wedding. I got many compliments that night, especially from a few single gentlemen. I just felt great!
