The ease! The package was on my door Thursday afternoon. I had 2 sizes to choose from. Got the right fit,I got to wear a new dress for a night, and then send it back without worrying about cleaning and finding space in my closet. It was a beautiful dress that received compliments the entire time I wore it.
I rented this dress as a "back up" for my sister's wedding after she said she didn't want me to have to buy a special dress I would never wear again :) I actually had this in mind for the rehearsal dinner, but after trying it on I changed my mind. It is a beautiful dress appropriate for a more formal occasion. It is long in the back, especially if you are short like me! I wish I had bought the size 0 as a back-up. I usually wear a size 4. Because it looked looser I sized down for my back-up. It fit. I was able to wear it. I think I could have even sized down, though, for a more comfortable fit. For one thing, the sleeves kept sliding off my shoulders. I do have narrow shoulders and the fashion tape that was included with my order took care of that. Also, it was a little longer in the back than was comfortable. That's why I didn't wear it to the rehearsal dinner. I didn't want the back dragging on the city street! It was fine at the wedding, which was outdoors, but I did worry about it dragging and snagging on a branch, etc. Overall, though, I was extremely pleased with my first time rental and will definitely be renting from here again due to this experience. I wanted to try this style and I was glad I had the chance to do so. I received compliments all night long on this dress!
