Love the heavy, stretchy fabric
I didn't end up wearing this dress. I thought it would be dark blue, but it was black. I had received an email that it was damaged, but RTR sent it to me anyway along with an extra back-up dress (love the customer service!). The damage was the mesh/lace panel in the neckline and the back, there were spots where the darker lines had pulled away from the adjacent mesh, causing little holes - only noticeable upon close inspection but for me, too shabby for my formal party. The mesh covers the entire upper back, I can't imaging any bra with straps wouldn't show. But I loved the heavy, stretchy fabric and the fit was very, very flattering, better than the dress I ended up wearing. I'm 5'7" and I thought I could get away with 3-4" heels with this, it would not have touched the floor but I thought that given the line and the cut, that would have been okay.
