The colors and the cut make this dress a standout!
I rented this dress in a 4L and a 6L; I'm 5'7 and with 3 inch heels it was the perfect length. I ended up wearing the 6 even though the 4 fit better, but the colors were more vivid on the 6 (I assume it had been dry cleaned less times.) I LOVED this dress, it was flattering, sexy without being overt, and was such a stunner in person. Everyone from the wedding party to the waitstaff asked where I had bought it. Keep in mind that the dress is pure silk, so wrinkles AND tears (crying tears, not rips) will show. I found myself tearing up during the ceremony and had my boyfriend point out the now noticeable splashes on my chest area. Unfortunately, due to the material, these stayed the rest of the night. Also, I had to steam the dresses upon their arrival, as they were far too wrinkly to be worn right out of the garment bag - keep that in mind. Other than that I would definitely rent this dress again for a summer event. It's really gorgeous and you can't go wrong with it! :)
