Wore this dress for my 32nd birthday in Hollywood, and felt like a superstar.
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Honestly, when I originally put this on, I hated it. I thought it wasn't going to work. The straps were falling down, the zipper was virtually impossible (thanks to sequins and bad hardware) and it wouldn't stay closed in the chest area. You'd have to be 5'10" and have a size F bra for the chest to work on this dress. By the time the night rolled around, and I got myself a safety pin and some fashion tape, it looked great. I got a ton of compliments, and it turned out great in all of the pictures. It's a beautiful color, and incredibly sparkly. It'll make you feel like a total movie star. Hugs all the curves in all the right places, while still covering any belly issues you might have. Great first experience for me with Rent the Runway, aside from my initial concerns. I suppose I shouldn't judge anything until I have the fashion tape. As for the sizing, don't get the lower size, it won't fit. This was plenty tight around the mid-section, and there's no way the 6 would have fit.
