Unique color, definitely stood out from all the LBDs!
Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a semi-formal party, and it was the perfect combination of not too formal but not too "clubby". The dress is really nice in person. I'm really not a fan of the bandage dress style, but the coloring definitely keeps this one from looking like just another bandage dress. The material is very thick and the dress is very fitted so it was very flattering. I'm just over 5' 2" and the dress hit me a little lower than mid-thigh which kept it classy despite being very form-fitting. However, despite being relatively straight-bodied, I had some issues with the waist of the dress due to it being so fitted as my waist is smaller than my hips and I felt like the dress folded up a bit at my waist, it didn't really hug my waist. This was especially the case with the S, which I also felt like I would need to pull up all night, so I went with the XS which was a little tighter through my hips than I would have liked. That being said I'm not sure this would be the best dress for women with a large hip to bust ratio. Otherwise the dress looked great on, and I really liked the gold exposed zipper (this is slightly different than how it is pictured on the model). The dress does have an inner strap that buckles behind the back like a bra strap (I'm assuming to give extra support). However the clasp was broken on the XS so the straps kept bunching up around my sides which was pretty uncomfortable, I kept having to have a friend unzip the dress slightly and readjust the straps so they lay flat. I have to say I have been a little dissapointed as 4/5 RTR dresses I have rented have had some sort of damage, like tears and broken clasps, and the broken clasp is the only reason I'm not giving this dress five stars.
