Beautiful and amazingly comfortable!
This gown not only looks gorgeous, but the fabric feels gorgeous as well, making for a very comfortable fit, as well as a stunning look! I have a gymnast's build (short, slender, but with shoulders!) and the one shoulder style provided plenty of room while the body of the dress nicely accentuated the rest of me. The style allowed for a multi-way bra (strap that goes over the shoulder and crosses the back), so I didn't have to deal with stick on bras or a strapless bra, which added to the comfort of the dress. Lengthwise, since I am 5'2" tall, I wore five inch heels, which kept the gown off the floor. A lower heel would have been fine as the dress opens nicely in front when walking, so you won't be stepping on a hem that hits the floor. Concerning size, I thought the 2R was going to be the right size when I ordered, but luckily I had requested the 4R which fit me like a glove. The 2R fit in the waist, but not the upper body. The 4R fit comfortably, but was not loose. Overall, I loved the dress, had many compliments, and would definitely recommend both RTR and this dress to others!
