Perfect dress, great first experience with RTR!
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for the Marine Corps Ball. The event was the weekend after Hurricane Sandy slammed the East Coast, and I thought that might keep RTR from being able to get the shipments out, but it still arrived on time, which was very impressive, especially considering the company is based in NYC. I loved the idea that they would send 2 sizes, because my weight tends to fluctuate (especially after having a baby), so that gave me peace of mind that I'd be ale to wear one for sure. I loved the cut of this dress too, especially for my post-baby body. It hid my problem areas without looking like maternity wear or a muumuu. I couldn't figure out how to tie the ribbon to look like the picture, so I just tied it behind my back and it looked good that way too. My only problem with the dress was that I am 5'2", and even in my 4" heels it was a little too long, and I had to hold the skirt up while walking to keep from stepping on it. All in all, I am thrilled with my experience and will use RTR any time I have an event in the future.
