Great dress for wedding guests!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I was drawn to this dress because of the teal color and the lace, but I was also a little worried it might be a little too matronly for someone my age. Not at all--it was very polished and classy, and I got several compliments. The lace pattern was lovely and symmetrical, and it wasn't itchy or stiff. I'm hourglass-shaped and tend to avoid dresses with a waistline that doesn't sit at the narrowest part of the waist, but although the waist on this was a little high, it's cut well so that it doesn't puff out over the stomach.
I usually wear an 8 in most clothes (thanks, vanity sizing!), but that size was a little tight in the chest/shoulders, so I ended up wearing a size 10 in this dress. The only problem is that a previous client must have forced the zipper a little hard, so the top 2 inches wouldn't stay closed and I constantly had to keep pulling at it. Other than that, it was a great dress, and the rental process form RTR was a breeze!
Jewelry tip: A necklace may look like a little too much because of the scalloped lace detail on the neckline, but you can enjoy wearing some stunning chandelier earrings with this!
