perfect pregnancy solution
When I found out I was pregnant and realized a dress I had already purchased to wear to a black tie wedding would probably not fit by the time the event came around, I figured I better start looking for a back-up. This was my first time using Rent the Runway, and I could not have been happier with my dress choice or the rental process. I usually wear a size 4 or 6 in DVF, and figured the cut of this style would be flattering and forgiving of a growing belly and bust. I agree with the other reviewers that the fit runs a bit large, and at 4 1/2 months pregnant, this worked perfectly for me since there was no back-up size available for my rental date. The waistline is elasticized underneath the tie sash, and this rested just above my bump, the chiffon fabric draped nicely all over, and you could barely tell I was pregnant. I wore a low heel, and the length was perfect, just grazing the floor. I also tacked the front neckline which was not visible, and I did not have to worry about it opening. I received several compliments, and I felt pretty and comfortable all night. I will definitely recommend using Rent the Runway to friends, and because I had such a positive first experience, I would certainly rent again.
