This dress makes you feel fabulous!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was my first RTR rental, and I was pleased as punch with the dress and the RTR experience. I got the dress exactly when the delivery was due, the day before my event. I had ordered both 8 and 10 sizes to be safe, but the 8 fit well. Love so many things about the dress- the rose-gold sequins, the flattering ruching at the waist, the slightly lower-than-average hemline (no worries of flashing your underoos ladies!) and the flirty low-v neckline. The few minor issues with the dress is that the bust is definitely made for bigger cup sizes, I'm a 36-C and it was still slightly loose on me, so I tried the fashion tape on my décolletage to avoid issues (the free fashion tape isn't that good quality, it just unglued instantly for me) and it was just more cleavage than I normally show. The sequins do eventually start to scratch your underarm skin, but it's a small price to pay. I got so many compliments on my outfit, it was very fun to wear. I also rented accessories: the kate spade ny 'putting on the ritz' drop earrings, very cute and not too heavy, and the Kenneth Jay Lane 'polished crystal ring' which is a huge clear fake clear gem and very fun and flashy.
I was concerned about returning my rental because the day of my return fell on Martin Luther King day and all the post offices were closed so i couldn't get it in the mail that day. I e-mailed RTR help services and they replied that it was fine that I return it one day late, considering the holiday! So it all worked out great!
Definitely picking out my next rental already! :)
