Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this for a military ball and it was an amazing dress. I have never rented from RTR before and I was hesitant on many levels, mainly the sizing. I chatted with a sizing specialist and she suggested a 2R and 4R and I'm glad I listened...the 2 didn't even zip, but the 4 was perfect!!
A few small issues I had:
1) I am smaller-chested, so even with a padded strapless bra, I had to safety pin the v-neck closed more to be more modest and cover my bra
2) I have a short torso, so the right shoulder strap fell easily, but I used the double-sided fashion tape that was included to fix that problem
3) The sequins were a little scratchy on the arms, but nothing extreme.
The length of the dress was perfect, I normally have to wear "short" dresses and pants, but with a 3" heel, this fit perfectly. In my (biased) opinion, I thought it was the prettiest dress there and I got so many compliments on it. Just be warned, this is a dress to show off your curves (good and/or bad?)!!!
I will definitely rent from RTR again. Because of the Memorial Day Holiday, my dress was tracking to arrive a day later than I scheduled, but much to my surprise, it came right when it was supposed to. You also get a garment bag and cosmetic samples that you get to keep and shipping it back was as easy as could be! I can't wait to rent from RTR again, and I'm hoping it's sooner rather than later!!
