I ordered this dress for delivery while I was on vacation. I love being able to order a dress anytime, anywhere!
So much to say! I ordered two sizes: XS (my regular size) and S (just in case). I'm glad I did, because the XS was clearly damaged from dry cleaning. When I pulled it out of the bag it was WILDLY staticky; I tried it on anyway, only to notice that the outer layer was at least 3 inches shorter than the liner. I took a look at the size S dress, which still had tags, and the hemline was fine. Also, the ruffles on the damaged dress were very smushed and irregular. Basically, this dress shouldn't have been sent to me- it was not in rentable/wearable condition. I'm glad RTR gives the option to rent a second size, and on the bright side, I didn't pay retail to own this dress. Now, as for what I actually thought of the design and fit of the dress: the color is beautiful and, I think, universally flattering. My hubby wasn't sure about the dress when I first threw it on with the grosgrain ribbon belt, so I added a thicker belt of my own to give it some more shape and WOW, did he love it. Be sure to wear nude undies or a good slip, since it's sheer. I wore mine with a strapless bra and nude undies and it was fine. A nice length for shorter gals.
