Be sure to SMELL the dress because it doesn't always get super clean before it is sent to you!
Fit wise- this dress was perfect. Not too short, not too tight, super classy. However, like many of the reviewers here, I struggled with the zipper. I ordered both a 4 and a 2. As the dress cut goes up pretty high to the underarms, the size 4 reeked of perspiration and body odor. I think this type of fabric just absorbs perspiration and is just hard to get super clean with your typical dry cleaning. Therefore, I had to wear the 2. So my tip is to make sure you smell the dress BEFORE your event, it’s super frustrating to realize this issue as you’re getting ready for your event. I contacted RTR about the issue that morning, they said I could take it to get it cleaned, but my event was in an hour. The 2 was a little tight but I didn’t have any other options since the 4 smelled so bad. I loved the style of this dress and I really want to give it a 5, but the dress and perspiration issue makes me give it a 4.
