I felt like a princess in this elegant, unique, fun and comfortable dress!
I chose this dress for a recent summertime Black-Tie Wedding (evening) at a fabulous resort in San Diego. After spending a lot of time reading the fit reviews, I finally decided on a size 4R with a 6R as my backup (I am 5' 4", about 115-120lbs, and wear a 34D bra, size 27 jeans). From the other reviews, my main concerns prior to getting the dress were 1. the bust fitting too tightly and 2. the long dress length, but the size 4R ended up fitting me perfectly. The bust area has a nice corset holding you in under the sheer material and right sleeve, and with my 34D size chest, I was able to wear a thinly lined, everyday nude bra underneath (which I LOVE being able to do!!) and the zipper closed up snug but still comfortable and breathable. The corset to waist area detail and transition of this dress is very flattering and slimming, but I would definitely suggest some Spanx for a smooth finish underneath. The material of the dress was so comfortable without having to fuss or adjust all night (like in a sheath dress or strapless dress), really this dress is easy elegance defined. I had to wear 4 inch Betsey Johnson heels to get the dress length just right- barely skimming the floor without tripping or dragging. I think the silhouette and length of the dress really help achieve a tall, slender look, which I usually never get at 5'4". I received so many compliments the night of the wedding, and my dress was definitely unique, I really, truly felt like a princess!! I also met 3 other RTR ladies at the wedding and they all looked fabulous, as well.
