Pretty and sexy... but definitely NOT a petite
Make no mistake, this dress was a win. I loved the fabric - it's nice and substantial and drapes nicely. The cutout is placed so strategically - it provides enough of a peek-a-boo to be sexy but covers up enough that I felt comfortable. Now for the cons... I am super short (5'1") and pretty busty (32DD) despite a small frame (size 4). I realllllllly need a petite dress and though RTR calls this a petite, what they really mean is that it has a shorter hemline than regular dresses. It does NOT have petite proportions, meaning that the waistline was a bit long, the one shoulder would have been super long if it didn't have an adjustable strap in the back. Also, despite a shorter length and 3.5" heels, it still hung on the floor an inch or two. Because of the front slit, this was not a problem at all, so if all you're worried about is length, you're good. If you're looking for a petite fit, good luck.
