Too big for me but not for sis
The Coral dress in the S size I ordered was no longer an option due to it being destroyed by previous customer, so RTR offered me an alternative - the "Keep Dreaming" dress (dark Taupe color). The only size available in that dress was an XS, but the stylist assured me that should be the correct size for me and it was!
The back-up size M of the Coral sheath was too big for me because of the low back, (it gaped in the back from about where a bra strap would hit to the bottom of the back opening). My sister tried on the M Coral dress (pictured) and looked great in it. I had also rented gold accessories (Nicole Miller bracelet and earrings) and my sister happened to have black and coral shoes that matched perfectly. She was not able to wear a bra due to the low back, and it showed a bit more cleavage than she preferred, but her husband loved her in the dress and she ended up wearing it rather than the one she had planned on wearing to our brother's wedding.
It's too bad the S wasn't available for me as I would've liked to try it (loved the coral color!) - but the amount the M gaped in back, I probably would've needed an XS. I was very happy with the fit of the replacement dress I got (the "Keep Dreaming" dress - dark taupe)
Overall, it was a great experience with RTR. I'm glad the last minute replacement dress fit, otherwise I would've been scrambling to find something to wear! My sister said she would definitely rent a Herve Leger dress from RTR for any future events.
