Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this for a winter charity benefit in NYC. I went for a more expensive rental with not so many reviews because I wanted to be sure no one else would should up in the same thing! Although I worried a bit about the cost and the unknown, I think it was worth it in the end. No one had my dress, and it truly was perfect for the occasion.
Typically I wear the smallest size available in almost everything, and the 38 fit great on top but was snug in the hips for me. The 40 was more comfortable in the hips but too big all over. I am 5'2", but the sleeves on the 38 hit the sweet spot on my wrist, and while the dress is longer on me than the model, it was still hit above the knees.
I got a lot of compliments and looks all night, probably due to the eye-catching waistband and opening in the back. Despite the snugness I felt, I think it appeared to fit like a glove. I wore this with sheer black hose and metallic accessories: my own 4" gunmetal t-strap Badgley Mishka pumps ("Plia II"), the RTR Kate Spade "crystal petals"necklace for some sparkle up top, the RTR DVR "black lytton embossed lizard" clutch, and my own fun mixed material studs.
The only problem is I don't yet have any photos!
