I thought this was a beautiful gown. I used it for a military ball.
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The gown fit nicely except for the bust - it was a little big. The length was a little shorter than I expected because I ordered a long, but it was not noticeable and looked fine with small heels. The dress doesn't have a lot of give, but it is very comfortable. I used double-sided tape to keep the top attached to my strapless bra, and also to keep the garment hanger string things tucked in - they kept popping out. This was a great choice for a military ball - conservative, classy, and beautiful. I appreciated the fact that it is a formal gown, but not a prom gown - I'm too old to pull a prom gown off. I recieved the gowns (I ordered the 2L and 4L, not sure of which size would fit best) on Thursday afternoon for a Saturday event. I had enough time to make sure my shoes and jewelry matched, and to try the whole ensemble on before the ball. When I went to return the dresses in the pre-paid package, I ran into a dilemna. The blue postage boxes that rent the runway says to drop the package in states specifically that you should not put anything over 13 ounces in it. The package was pre-paid up to 2 lbs. I had no idea how much the dresses weighed, so I brought it to the post office. I don't know if it would have been fine if I dropped it in or not - I just didn't want to take the chance.
