Stunning color, but not recommended for anyone with a bust.
At the last minute, following some recommendations from other RTR fans I know, I thought I'd take a chance and get a dress for a wedding we had to attend. This was a VERY last minute decision: I picked a dress at 11 pm on Thursday and the dress arrived at 1 pm on Friday at work, which was fantastic! I was so excited by the color and the texture of the dress. The detailing is beautiful, and I was sure I'd turn a few heads with the full, flouncy skirt.
Unfortunately, the next day when I went to get dressed for the ceremony, it would not zip all the way up so I did not get to wear it. I spent hours pouring over reviews and working through user photos so I knew that some women reported that this could be a little tight in the bust, but based on comparable reviews, I never expected that it would not zip up at all! Since this was a last minute rental and it was a crazy morning getting ready for the ceremony, I didn't discover this until the last minute but fortunately, I had a longer dress in my closet that I went to for a backup.
I really would not recommend this dress if you're larger than a 34B, otherwise you're sure to turn heads in this little number. It was a disappointing first RTR experience--I'm not sure I'll be back, but you never know.
