Beautiful dress- strange fit!!
I am a frequent RTRW user (having 9 weddings in one year will do that to a girl!) so I always know to read the reviews of plenty of women before renting any dress. I was so grateful I did. I usually wear a standard size 6 dress, but all the reviews told me that this dress ran very small and they were right, reading those, I ordered an 8 and a 10, and I wore the 10. The dress has no give to the fabric at all and is cut very narrow through the hips/rear - I think it is made for straighter bodied women, but I've got hips so even the 8 was too tight to really bend or move around in. The 10 was big in strange places (it gapped across the top which I normally never have a problem filling out) and was roomy in the stomach, but still taunt across the hips/rear. Overall I was happy with the rental and I received SO MANY compliments on this dress, it photographed nicely, but it was not my favorite rental simply because the fitting was so off and it is not sized properly. If you're looking to rent this dress definitely head the warnings of other renters and order a size up from your usual size, and make your backup size the next size up from that!!
