Gorgeous dress, but didn't work for my body type
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I received the dress and it is stunning. I want to mention the color seemed more of a blush, as opposed to the ivory it appears on screen. That didn't make a difference either way- it's magnificent, regardless the color. I quickly stripped down to try it on and was so disappointed it didn't fit. I'm petite on top and curvy on the bottom. It's just didn't work with my body type. It's definitely a better cut for someone who has a straight body type, as opposed to my pear. I felt like the top half of the dress swalllowed me up and the bottom was way too tight to get away with. I didn't end up wearing the dress, and called RTR in a panic. They were outstanding! They agreed to send me an entire new look via Fedex the very next day in time for my big event. The second look was absolutely perfect and I'll share more in my review of that! So, bottom line, this dress is a stunner, but, unfortunately, not for me.
