Small in the butt, large in the chest
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a cotillion holiday dance, and it was my second dress so I only received it in one size. I was really hoping for this to work out as it looked so cute in the pictures/reviews but I wasn't able to wear it! Being almost 5'9", the underskirt that keeps the tulle from being completely see through was not even long enough to go over my butt! In the picture of the model, the tulle looks quite opaque and limp, however, in real life you would definitely be able to see if the underskirt had ridden up (or wasn't down in the first place) AND the tulle is MUCH more poofy in real life than it is pictured on the model, think bell shaped vs A line. Another issue I had with the dress was the bust area. Although I rented a 2, the top was extremely low cut (my bra hung out) and loose. Although I am very small chested, I did not expect the top to bag as much as it did.
With all of that said, this was a gorgeous dress, and if worn by the right body type would be absolutely adorable! But, if you're tall or have a butt, rethink renting this dress!
