This gown made me feel like a sexy, glamorous movie star! I didn't want to take it off!
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
My husband and I were invited to a gala, and I had seen this gown on RTR as I was shopping online. I had never rented a dress before and was skeptical, so I ended up going to the department store and buying a Ralph Lauren gown. But I kept thinking about THIS one, so I came back here and decided to rent. SO glad I stuck with my guns!
I teeter between a 6L and 8L, so I rented both sizes, just in case. The dress arrived exactly when it was supposed to, on the day before the gala. I loved the added touches that RTR included, including the invisible tape and garment bag. Thanks for that! I tried on both gowns, and was able to comfortably get into the 6. It was a perfect mermaid fit, hugging my shape in all of the right places. I was able to wear a regular bra and undies. The length of the gown was ideal, with a slight rise in front. I wore champagne colored shoes (old ones from a wedding I was in) and minimal jewelry. The dress made enough of a statement on its own!
I received SO many compliments on this gown, even had a friend ask to borrow it. (oh well!). I posted photos of our night out on Facebook and received more "likes" and comments than any other photo I've posted...even our wedding photos. Seriously...if you want to feel FABULOUS, I strongly suggest renting this gown!!!
As for RTR, I have a wedding to attend in two weeks and am strongly considering renting another dress! Awesome concept from an awesome company!
