Lovely but clearly popular!
This dress didn't come without it's issues. I rented a size 8R and 6R (I'm normally an 8 sometimes a 10 if a dress is very fitted in the hips...but never a 6). I ended up wearing the 6 because the 8R wasn't available. The previous renter had either damaged or not returned the dress in time. So only the 6 was sent, that was upsetting but customer service was very helpful and sent me another dress in a size 8 for free. The 6 ended up fitting fine, which was a relief because I really wanted to wear this dress! The 6 was in sorry shape though, there was a stain on the chest (looked like a spilled cocktail) I didn't notice it until I already had it on and was in the car en route to the wedding--it wasn't very noticeable but disappointing none the less, the hem was frayed in the back, one of the balls on the front collar was coming undone, there were some pulls in the fabric. Luckily it's a busy pattern and the wears/tears were in inconspicuous places, but I still paid good money to rent the dress, I would expect that it not show up dirty and tattered. Long story short, I loved the dress. Glad I got wear it, and the issues I experienced weren't enough to sour me on the experience as a whole.
