Loved it; my only regret was having to return the dress!
I loved this dress, and the color (exactly as pictured) can easily be worn by any skin coloring. At my size (5'4", 87 - 90 lbs.), I have a hard time finding clothes that fit but still are age appropriate. I usually wear a 00 and must have 0's taken in. That said, I don't like looking like a middle-aged Mom who shops by raiding her daughter's closet! I've worn Herve Leger before and think their dresses are more about style than a particular age group. Well, this dress certainly didn't disappoint; in fact, I received compliments throughout the event - even from people I'd never met! As for the fit . . . RTR didn't carry this one in an XXS, or I would've chosen it, with the XS as my back-up. Obviously, a more "normal" sized person had previously worn the one I received, and with me being so small, especially on top, I doubt others would've, but I noticed it being slightly stretched out. While I might've been more comfortable with the XXS, especially in the shoulders, I don't think any looseness was overly apparent. Typical for this designer, this dress probably runs small and is ideal for slender women, as well as those who want to show off curves. I couldn't be more happy with either the dress or RTR. Since this was my first rental, I'd also like to assuage any doubts about renting from RTR. This is an extremely dependable and professional company, and their rental process couldn't be easier or more convenient! You'll gladly recommend to others - and will want to rent again!
