Too short, not flattering for me but RTR's customer service saved the day!
I rented this dress to go out for my birthday but ended up not wearing it. To be fair, this one is my fault, I have to admit. I'm 6 ft tall and I read the reviews saying that this is a short dress but I rented it anyway. I actually have very few qualms with wearing short dresses (love showing off some leg!) but this was closer to a shirt on me. Even worse, I didn't take into account the opening at the front which would have made my underwear choice very obvious to the casual observer. Even if the dress had been long enough, it also wasn't flattering to my shape. I'm a little bit curvy so I like dresses that accentuate my smaller waist. I thought the cinching on this would do that but it just... wasn't right. It didn't cinch in as far as it should have and I ended up looking much wider than I am. Finally, I found a small issue on the front of the dress where the sequins had detached a bit. I think this is a beautiful dress on the right person: shorter than me and maybe a bit less curvy. Luckily, RTR's customer service is out of this world fantastic! Their lovely stylist, Madison, sent me a list of other dresses in stock that she thought I would like and overnighted my top two choices, all free of charge. I felt gorgeous in the dress she helped me pick out and am a very happy customer. Go RTR!
