Had such high hopes for this dress….
Size worn: 18WR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
First, the original size I ordered for this dress (16L) was damaged beyond repair (not RTR's fault, just the previous customers fault - seriously, what were you doing in a rented dress that you damaged it beyond repair anyway???). RTR sent me a separate dress (but of a completely different look/style - not what I needed) in my original size and then sent me this dress in my back up size (18). I don't know if it was because the dress was too big or if the dress just wasn't made for my body, but it really did nothing to flatter me. It did nothing to accentuate my waist and the draping that was supposed to hid problem areas in the front was too low to hid anything. Once again, this could have been because it was a size too large. I ended up wearing the dress out of desperation of being away from home (dress was delivered to my hotel), having a mandatory formal work event, and no other choice. I had such high hopes for this dress and the dress just didn't live up to them.
