My roommates told me that my waist looked "tiny," which is definitely a good thing to hear!
Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for a charity gala, and it was my first rent, so I was definitely nervous! Luckily, Rent the Runway is as easy as they advertise to be, and this dress was amazing.
I rented the 38 and 40, and I am happy I sized up. Due to the boning the in the waist and bust, I needed the 40. I am a 34D and 130 pounds, and this dress accentuated my waist better than anything I have ever worn. If you have wider hips and a smaller waist, this dress is sure to bring in some compliments! There is no stretch in this dress, so it's important to order it true to size, and then probably a size larger.
The only down side to this dress is that the lace along the top was starting to look a little worn, but it was definitely still wearable. No one could tell unless the were looking very closely. Also, there was about a half and inch of lace above where the boning ended in the bust which made it stick out. I needed to steam it to keep it down.
Overall, this dress was amazing. The pros definitely outweighed the tiny lace issues. I loved it!
