RTR's Customer Service is TOP NOTCH, dress ran very large!
After a major panic attack with my first dress choice not being delivered, (not RTR's fault, UPS wouldn't leave the package outside my house due to major thunderstorms) I called RTR and they said they would send another dress to my hotel, since I was flying out to the wedding the next day. The original dress I wanted wasn't in stock, so, I picked this dress as I thought it looked very summery and nice for a very informal wedding.
The dress was so pretty, and the colors were very vibrant. The material had kind of a linen look to it. I got a lot of compliments on the dress.
I like Shoshonna's dresses, because I am very busty and they usually fit very nicely on me. However, this time, the dress was very loose fitting, especially in the chest area. I couldn't believe how much room was in the dress. I didn't even think about asking them to send a back up size, I should have went a size down, but, I had no idea the dress would be this big, as it had never been a problem with her dresses before.
Between the church and the reception I had to go back to the hotel and use a bunch of safety pins on both sides of the dress to take it in. That is how much room I had in the dress. Once I did that, the dress fit well, but the dress was bunched so much with pins, I had to put a white cardigan over it to hide all the pins. A white sweater did look nice over it.
Since I got this dress at the last minute, I didn't have to time to get any cute accessories, but, it would have looked great with a colorful necklace. If would love to rent this dress again, but, next time I would go down a size.
