Felt like a queen! The color was absolutely stunning!
This is the second time I have used RTR and I have to say I am a huge fan! I ran into some snags initially when my original dress (this red Monique Lhullier) was unavailable at the last minute in my requested size of 10R due to a previous renter having returned it in poor condition. RTR was unable to get a hold of me to select a different dress myself, so picked a similar dress they thought I would like and shipped that instead. I contacted RTR when I discovered the shipment was on its way and advised that even though the back up they'd chosen was beautiful (a black Badgley Mishka), that I highly doubted it would fit based on my full thighs vs the description/reviews of the dress. My stylist, Zoe, was so helpful and wanted to make sure I had exactly what I needed when she heard my concern. She even helped me with additional backups just in case my back up still didn't work. She was extremely timely and responsive, and although my timeframe was dwindling down for a substitution, I had no fear I wouldn't be covered since Zoe made it clear she was doing everything she could to get the new items to me as soon as possible. One of the dresses I selected as a back up was a larger size of my original dress choice--this ML in red, but in a 12R. I was nervous that it would be much too large in the bust, even though I am a 38D, based on other reviews I had read. It was very generous in the bust once I'd received it and tried it on, but I was able to pin it just right from the inside to ensure a snug fit. I am only 5'3" and the regular length with 4 1/2 inch heels worked perfectly. The dress had so much personality! I lost track of how many compliments I received throughout the evening. The dress was comfortable and definitely enhanced when you naturally have curves--someone with an hourglass shape or pear shape would rock this look. The only con besides needing to pin it for a snug fit was the occasional feel of needing to pull it up and back into place to ensure my cleavage was never too much. Although I am not one to repeat a dress, I would definitely rent this one again, but in a 10R. It truly is stunning and very easy to wear.
