Very sparkly, loved the dress, very hard to zip!
Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I read a TON of reviews on this dress before I decided on it. Here are a few things about the dress:
1. It's not really true GOLD, it's more of a rose-goldish / with a tan/nude underlay so true gold shoes that I ordered online didn't quite match so I ended up with nude pumps which were perfect and matched the dress nicely.
2. I felt a little like the dress made me feel bigger than I was on the bottom. I read some others wrote this too. I was afraid I looked pregnant all night. It's very lose and can be "pillow-y" in the stomach area, even if your stomach is flat but I guess it's good to hide flaws as well.
3. The Zipper!! This is a big one. I read this on a few of the reviews and just figured, well I'll just deal with it IF it happens to be hard to zip. Well, boy was it!! I am not even exaggerating it was VERY hard to zip up and not because of size. Also, both of the dresses that I received had the problem. It is more than tricky. I did everything to get ready and prepared to just slip the dress on and go after my hair and makeup and then I panicked for almost 30 minutes that the dress wasn't zipping up, either size, and I would have nothing to wear. I tried everything. My husband tried, even my father tried. I took it off and tried, I put it on and tried, it was super hard to zip! It's like a section of the zipper is that way on both dresses and once you get passed that part (when your fingers are dented and sore) you will be fine :) just give it some extra time for the zippering I guess.
I loved how it sparkled in the pictures and I felt comfortable in it, just wish the stomach part wasn't so poofy and the zipper got me very frustrated before walking out the door.
Great experience with the website and shipping, etc. though and I will use RTR again for sure!! I have recommended so many friends to this site from my photos on facebook. Lots of people never heard of this website and loved my dress. So I guess it was a success!
