Gorgeous color, Great fabric, Perfect fit!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
This dress was completely better in person than online. I'd suggest looking at the photos carefully because it was definitely different than I expected. First, the color is way less orange and way more scarlet than it appears on the model. Second, there are triangle/diamond seams around the abdomen that give a great subtle slimming effect. Third, the hem is sort of an inverted scallop, just slightly higher in the front than it is in the back which is actually really beautiful (and makes your legs look great!). This was sort of a last minute rental for Valentine's Day, and it definitely wasn't my first choice dress. However, after I saw it in person I was completely glad I picked it. I wore it with nude peep toe pumps and a white trench coat (we were at a ski resort). I'm a tall girl with a bigger chest and the dress wasn't too short or too tight through the chest area, definitely true-to-size. Two possible downfalls/positives (depending on your point of view) 1. It isn't a tight fit (maybe if you sized down you'd get the body-hugging effect?) 2. It's cut to high to really show off your girls. Probably a good thing to most people, but I personally don't mind cleavage, especially for V-Day. Anyways, great rental for a semi-formal wedding down to a night out with the girls. Super versatile, just accessorize it differently!
