Cute dress, terrible zipper!
I rented this dress for an October wedding. I read the reviews, and got a "helper" for the zipper, but three of us could not zip it up so I had to wear a different dress to the ceremony.
I brought the dress to try again for the reception, and FINALLY someone got it up, but not without a LOT of hassle, and almost feeling like we were breaking the zipper.
I usually order a 4 or 6 in most dresses, but upon reading the reviews settled on a 6 and 8. The 6 would've fit perfect if it weren't for my 36 D chest. I had to wear a strapless bra which wasn't a problem, but the top of the dress doesn't seem to be made for bustier women; it almost seemed like it was flattening me down instead of accentuating the shape.
The material was absolutely beautiful and I loved how it flowed around me, but due to the impossible zipper and the boob-flattening, I will not be renting this again.
