Wanted to wear the dress, but way too short!
The dress is a great pattern and a nice heavy high quality fabric that is form fitting. I am 5'10" and typically wear a size 4/6. This dress was WAY too short. I got it as a backup to wear to a rehearsal dinner and I felt way too uncomfortable of where the dress hit me, it was literally only a few inches below my butt. I don't think I would have been able to wear a size up because it fit me great in the bust/shoulders, but was just so short. Another thing that was a bit weird in the dress is where the yellow part was kept folding up over my hips oddly. Again, not sure if it was a size issue. However, I never got to even have a back-up size because...see below..
Another item of note unrelated to the dress: I rented another dress for this shipment and this was my backup. Rent the Runway allows a backup rental for $32.50 but doesn't include a free additional size, which I totally understand. HOWEVER, I didn't want to use this as my backup as I paid $30 for it (the full price as a rental), but the cart kept forcing me to use it as a backup rental and wouldn't allow me to select a free additional size. This is a flaw in the rental process. I shouldn't have to have two separate carts for two separate shipping fees for things that are together just because I do not want to treat one of the dresses as a back-up.
