This dress did not work for me- liked the idea of it, though.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Last minute choice for New Years Eve (for a last minute affair). Pickings a bit slim, especially for a short person like myself. That was my problem, not RTR.
Best suited for a taller, more slender frame, I think.
Too much material, too long, big, fussy, and frumpy for my 5' tall frame. Took a chance, as I thought it looked sophisticated and interesting. Which it is, but not on me. Also, the fit was very odd on me. I gave it a try as some other "shorties" liked it.
I did not wear it. I did not bother even trying on the 6 (only the 4) as it would have been way too overwhelming. I do not think a smaller size would have worked either- same issues with fit and frumpy. Should have known better, knowing my body and what looks good on it. I do not look good with a dress ending just above my knees. Needs to be either shorter or longer.
However, I was happy that even though I ordered at the last minute, it got here in time (if I had chosen to wear it), and both sizes were clean, great condition and ready to go.
Had I been able to discuss choices with a stylist, that person may have steered me to a better available choice. But it was Sunday evening with New Years on Tuesday, so just gave it a shot.
I am happy with RTR, just not the fit and style of this dress on me.
