Perfect sparkle dress to ring in the New Year!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I did love this dress- it's super sparkly, was really comfortable (sequins bothered me a tiny bit at the beginning of the night but I got used to them), and I could wear a regular bra with it (hooray!!).
However, I think it's been pretty hyped so I just want to note a few things in my review! :)
-I am usually a 4/6; 4 fit great. I wouldn't order a full size down but if you're in between sizes, err on the smaller isde.
-Length: I thought it was a great, classy length, hitting me just above the knee (and I'm pretty short, with basically no torso). If you're planning on wearing to a bachelorette/club or something you might think it's long but for a more formal affair, it does show a bit of cleavage so I think the longer length balances it out.
-The color isn't really what it's like on the model photo - I'm including a picture of the fabric close up because I couldn't tell what exactly I was in for. It's sort of got a rose gold sheen, and the sequens don't entirely cover the dress, which has sort of a nude backing. I paired with nude heels but I agree with other reviewers- too much gold-gold against this dress might clash.
-The 2 that I ordered had someone else's hair all in the sequins. Eww. I'm glad the 4 fit better.
-Finally, the zipper is really tough, maybe due to wear/use, but I think there are seams along the zipper that make it hard to zip even if there's plenty of space. I was really afraid that the 4 zipper would break as we tried to force it over the horizontal seam a couple of inches from the top. Minor issue but I hate when dresses are cut like that.
This was my first RTR experience and I will definitely be using the service again! I don't think I'd rent this dress again, however, just because it wasn't as flattering on me as I've seen it on some other girls!
Also note that it's really popular. At my party, one guest mentioned that she had almost rented the same dress for it! Haha!
