Chose this dress for a black tie Gala. It was lovely. Very pleased with the look!
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
FIT - I tend to have a problem finding dresses that fit well. Given that I just had a baby 6 months ago, not everything seems to be as it use to be :) That being said, I still fit into a 4, but reserved both the 4 & 6. I am also at a height that puts me in between regular and long. At 5'6, most regular sized dresses are great for length and 3 inch heel. I had to go with the long, the regular was all rented out. With that being said I had to wear 6 inch heels. The dress hugged everything perfectly, and the top stayed up with no problem. I am not well endowed so I normally get a little nervous with strapless dresses. But this wasn't a problem.
PROS - quick turn around from the staff at RTR. I couldn't decide if I wanted to rent or buy for this Gala. I kept going back and forth. I sent several e-mails to the stylist, they responded quickly and gave me all the info I needed. I was so happy I rented!
CONS - I was silly, and didn't read the full description of the dress. There is a TRAIN. And if you'e like me and rented the long instead of the regular and you are in between sizes. The long is LONG. I had 6 inch heels on and the dress still had length to it (the train part), so careful when you walk, the second size they sent me, it looked as if someone may have put a heel through the dress. I contacted them, and they responded immediately. And have taken care of the situation. Even though the dress was long and had a train. I can't really complain.
All in all great dress! I cannot wait to rent again! Not sure I'll ever buy another dress ;)
Thank you staff at RTR, saved me some serious cash and made me look/feel beautiful!
