This is how I rang in the New Year 2012! While most girls wear sparkles all over on New Year's Eve, I stood out with this color, which is a such a unique shade of orangey-red. And the embellished pockets gave me just enough sparkle to stand out among all the people who were ringing in the New Year. My dress stood out so much that girls were coming up to me in the bathroom asking me "Where did you get your dress? I love it!" And I obviously sold them on RTR.
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Like most Matthew Williamson dresses this ran a little small, but luckily I knew that and rounded up ... definitely ROUND UP in sizing, and also even in your back-up size. Especially since this dress has padded in the breast/bodice already there is no need for a bra and you probably couldn't wear one anyway. The slight padded cups and the sweetheart neckline makes for a very subtle yet feminine corset look. This dress has been on the site for awhile but is completely timeless and rents often for a reason! However, some of the wire and boning is starting to poke thru the fabric, so beware when wearing.
Even though I had to round up a whole dress size, maybe could have even worn a size larger, the cut and the fit was so perfect and flattering, especially for a curvy girl, that I found it made me look even smaller than my true size!
