Gorgeous dress. Gorgeous cut. Gorgeous everything!
I got this dress as my main dress for my bachelorette party. Unfortunately, however, 2 days before I was supposed to get my rental, a rep called and said that the size small was no longer available and that I could only get the XS. She was nice enough to offer a 2nd backup dress instead though, even if it cost a bit more. Sadly, this was my FIRST CHOICE and the Small would've been the perfect size!
As far as sizing goes, everything was great until it was time to zipper the dress closed. I pretty much had to have my shoulders touching going backwards for the zipper to close! I'm convinced that I have a broader ribcage than most for my size so it just barely closed. Once it was, it looked great but I was so worried that I would turn the wrong way and break the dress that I just ended up not wearing it. As I said, the small would've been PERFECT!
Next time I have a formal affair, or maybe even for an anniversary dinner, I'll be able to rent this dress again and in the correct size. For now though, I'll just dream about how pretty it looked on me for the 5 minutes that I wore it.
