Too tight in the midsection - no give at all
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for a Gala, but unfortunately was unable to wear any of the sizes ordered. After reading many reviews, I went with a size 6 (what I normally wear) and a size 4 as most reviews said that the dress ran big. I was really disappointed upon receiving the dress because neither size fit across the midsection. The dress fit everywhere else, but there is no give in the gathered band across the waist, and if you are not super tiny in that area, it will be very difficult to zip, and if you can zip the dress, even more difficult to breathe. The reason I am still giving one star is because I contacted RTR on Thursday after receiving the dresses on Wednesday (Gala was Saturday) and they overnighted me the 8 to try as well. The customer service was wonderful, as usual. I have rented before, and been really happy with my dress, but unfortunately, this dress was not a great fit. One last point, I also feel that the layer of sequins has an added effect of a layer of "thickness" which was not very flattering overall. I will definitely rent again though!
