I wasn't able to wear the dress!
I was so looking forward to wearing this dress! I rented it for a formal gala, and it would have been perfect. To start, I usually wear a size 6, so I rented the 6L and 8L because the reviews said it ran a bit small. A bit small is an understatement! When I got it, I tried on the 8 first and could barely get the dress over my hips. When I finally got it there, the side zipper wouldn't zip over my rib cage. If you are thinking about renting this, I would suggest sizing up one size from your usual as your main renting size and up another from there as your back up! If I would have rented a 10 I think it would have just fit. I was disappointed, but what are you going to do? My RTR contact was very helpful and let me keep the accessories I had rented so I had something fun to wear to my event. She would have overnighted another dress to me, but my other "hearted" dresses weren't available, so I chose to wear something I already had in my closet.
