Conservative and feminine, with a touch of sexy.
This was the dress I originally ordered for a LBD bachelorette party. I am usually between a 4 and a 6, but after reading reviews I decided to go with a 6 and 8 because it seemed like the dress ran small. Shortly before shipment, RTR contacted me and said the 6 was no longer available for my dates and offered to send me the 8, as well as a different dress with 2 sizes. I ended up going with the 2nd dress, but I was glad I still got to try this one on. The 8 did fit, so I'm glad I ordered up. It wasn't skin tight, which I appreciated, but it didn't fit my upper body quite right because the zipper bumped out. That is due to my height, not a design flaw. But it was flattering and felt easy to wear. The waist tapered in at a lower point, making my short torso appear longer. The beading across the shoulders was very lovely and not tight; forgiving for a gal with broad shoulders. I am on the shorter side and the dress hit below my knees, which isn't the best spot for me, but the right heels would have elongated me enough. I would order this dress again and I would get the 6 and 8. I know the 8 would work, but I would be interested to see how much shorter the 6 is in length and if the zipper would still bump out.
