When I posted this photo on facebook, I couldn't believe the number of positive comments I received from everyone! It made the day even more special!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I experienced some complications with the delivery of this dress, but I was so happy to receive it the night before my cousin's wedding! I ordered a 6R, with the 4R as a backup, and wound up wearing the 4R. The top was a little blousy looking with my smaller chest, but the belt helped to cinch the extra fabric in place. I opted to not wear a bra with this dress, since it has a lower back and did not need to use any sort of tape to hold the dress in place - it stayed close in all the right places and I felt totally comfortable and not scared anything might unexpectedly pop out! I am 5'7" and the dress was a little long in the back wearing flat shoes, but it was definitely manageable. From the front, it was the perfect length.
My only criticism of this experience has to do with the condition of the dress. I was fortunate that the 4R was the better size for me - I would not have been able to wear the 6R because the beaded collar was falling apart. Additionally, when I got into the car to drive to the event, I noticed a stain down the front of the 4R that I hadn't seen the night before. At that point, it was too late to change so I had to hope that no one else would notice. I would guess that this dress is a popular rental, based on both the 4R and the 6R's conditions, but I was definitely expecting the dresses to be repaired/cleaner.
Overall, I was happy with the dress and RTR was very accommodating when I expressed my concerns to them over the rental. Additionally, I received more compliments over my outfit than I can even count! This is a great dress for a wedding or outdoor formal event!
