getting a ton of compliments on the color & style of this dress!
So, I'm 23 weeks pregnant and needed a cute dress that would fit, plain and simple. I've found very few maternity dresses that are stylish, and the cut of this dress seemed like it'd be a great option. I tried the small (my bump's not THAT big yet), and it was crazy small. Way too short (like, vulgar short) and couldn't zip all the way (even though the draping & jersey along my hips & belly felt comfortable). The Medium was way roomier and was the perfect length, although a bit big along the neckline, so I had to keep pulling it up under my right arm. I was pretty surprised that the two sizes differed SO much. I've never felt such a discrepancy between sizes like that before.
That said, I got a ridiculous amount of compliments on the dress. I dressed it up with the House of Harlow pendant necklace, which I felt was a little more understated and appropriate for a day wedding, and nude heels.
Rent the Runway has great customer service and makes it so easy to return the garments!
