Makes you feel confident and beautiful
I rented this as a backup with no intention of wearing it for my beach wedding. But as soon as I tried it on, it became The One. The color is an incredibly gorgeous ivory, and the quality of the fabric is amazing--thick but not heavy, the fabric weight combined with the structure built into the dress make you stand up straight, float when you walk and feel like you've lost 10 pounds.
The fit was spot on. I'm a curvy size 4, and this fit like it was tailored for me. Accentuated curves, but in a classy way. Be forewarned, though: if you have an extra curvy or more athletically shaped body, the waist and derriere parts of this dress are sculpted to fit closely to the body; there's no give or flex. So, you need to be able to fit into the lines of the dress, or completely fill it out, because it keeps its shape regardless! Would probably work best on hourglass body types, which is what I am. The fit was very true to size; this is not a dress you can get away with trying to 'squeeze into' if RTR doesn't have your size available.
Because of the fabric weight and bodice structure, the strapless top holds up without any fear of slipping down. Worked with a regular Victoria's Secret Very Sexy strapless plunge bra, and not to belabor the point, but the fabric weight means that you can wear pretty much anything underneath...or nothing, if that's your thing. Can't imagine anything showing through. Highly recommended.
