A gorgeous dress and fantastic customer service to boot!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is my third time renting from RTR and has been my most favorite rental to date. The dress itself is impeccably constructed from a decently thick silk/satin fabric that has a diagonal weave throughout. I found the peplum to be extremely flattering, especially for someone like me who has a fairly nonexistent waist. Additionally, the peplum hit at a length that did not make me appear too short-waisted, which is a big pet peeve of mine on many dresses that feature peplum accents. Despite reviews stating that the bottom was too big, I didn't find it overly roomy or ill-fitted. If anything, it just gave the appearance that the dress was more structured and sheath-like in style. I will say that the bodice is very fitted, so it may pose some problems for women who are bustier (I'm between a 32 B and C, and actually wore the dress without a bra). I had originally ordered a 2 and 4 (I'm normally a 2 at BR and JCrew; 0 at Ann Taylor), but was told by the staff at RTR a day before my rental was to be shipped out that the 4 had been irreparably damaged; regardless, they were more than happy to send me any dress of my choice, should the 2 not work out. I'm glad it did, but was equally impressed with RTR's handling of the situation. Can't wait until my next rental!
