Cute but too short
This was my second Rent the Runway rental. After an amazing first dress, I had high expectations. Unfortunately this dress fell short... and I mean short.
The dress itself is cute, and has the vintage feel that I was looking for my boyfriend's birthday weekend. It is a true wrap so if you don't tie it correctly, body parts will show. The downside is that it is incredibly short. I am 5'3" but have an hourglass shape, so dresses are always shorter on me, but this dress fit more like a tunic than a dress. I ordered the 42 and 44 (I am usually a size 4). The hem of the 42 came across the middle of my butt, and the 44 was about an inch and a half longer.
On a positive note, the Rent the Runway team was phenomenal, particularly Tiffany V. She worked with me to find something to replace this dress for a good hour. Unfortunately all that time searching, and UPS does not ship to me on Saturdays. I love Rent the Runway, and will be renting again soon; just next time will pay more attention to reviews.
