This dress was bachelorette party perfection: beautiful, classy, and fun!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I LOVED this dress. This was my first time using RTR and it was a great experience, and an awesome dress. I wore it for my bachelorette party and it was complete perfection. I wanted something fun and attention grabbing, but still very classy. This was it! The fitted top was flattering and snug. I danced (a lot) and had no concerns about it falling down. I would agree with other reviews, if you are heavier up top, definitely size up. I'm usually a pretty true 6 and I have a small chest, so the fit worked great for me. I was a little concerned that the tulle length would be too long and wouldn't go with a sexy cocktail theme, but it hit in a really nice spot. Short enough to show leg, but not showing too much. It was also a very comfortable dress and I lasted the whole night with no complaints. The skirt is quite full and I felt very protected from any unwanted advances or grabbing (perfect if you're in a 'center of attention' situation :) ). I couldn't be more thrilled I found this dress.
Size note: based on other comments I thought I would need a 4, but it wasn't available and I worried about the 6 being too big. Turns out...the 6 was great, I think it's because I am small chested and have larger hips, proportionally. My measurements are chest: 34.5ish, waist: 26/27, hips: 36. And I'm 5' 4.5'' Hope that helps!
Color note: it is more of an off white in the tulle, with a lot of nude undertones up top. I think pictures make it look more white than it is, but it's still very "bachelorette" if that's what you're going for. In some of my pictures it looks totally white, even though that isn't the reality. I was worried it would clash with my white bird cage veil, but I thought it looked just fine, and it's really hard to see the difference in photos. I wore nude shoes with it and they looked great. Just know that this isn't a pure white dress. In the end I kind of liked the color because it was still bridal but with a more stylish twist.
