Tight, Bright, and Perfect for the Night!
This was my 1st RTR experience and it was FAB !
I rented this dress for my spring sorority formal in Newport, RI. I read many of the reviews and viewed photos before choosing this dress to make sure it would flatter my small up top, large on the bottom "pear" body type. Both the 4 and the 6 fit, but since the dress was so tight I chose the 4 to hold me in a bit more (the 6 also had some excess fabric that created wrinkles). The main difference in fit between the 4 and 6 was the tightness in the shoulders. I wore a sticky bra and had no issues with the "awkward" arm hole gap that other reviewers mentioned. Although the fabric is well made and thicker, the dress is still VERY tight (not uncomfortable or painful though) and shows all. If you are the type of person to fixate on a tummy pooch spanx would definitely be needed or I'd advise you to choose another dress. I chose to fold the shoulder piece down since I have a smaller frame, but it still looked nice not folded (as pictured on the RTR model). I had no problems dancing in this dress and the shoulders stayed in place pretty well all night, it may have been since I sized down. Additionally, the zipper did not "duck tail" in the back on me as it has for some other wearers. Overall this was a great dress perfect for my occasion, my SO loved it !
