I. Love. This. Dress.
This ended up being my back up to the back up dress...but by far my favorite RTR to date. The original dress I ordered didn't fit & was slightly damaged, and the backup dress was way too short, so RTR's amazing customer service sent me this one. It's way out of any price range I'd ever considered for a rental, but I absolutely loved it, and will be buying it when RTR is ready to sell. It was perfect for my office Christmas party this year...a little more substantial fabric, so I was warm enough, festive green color, and special without being inappropriate. I'm used to other women gushing, so that happening all night was no surprise, but I received multiple VERY appreciative compliments from the men all night as well.
As far as the fit... I'm a little taller, so sometimes it's difficult to find dresses in a decent length, but this one was perfect. I guess you could say the fit is a little bit loose, but it's so well tailored that I thought it was perfect. Such a fun change not to have to tug, yank, and smooth all night long! I was able to wear a normal bra, which is always a plus. The fabric was heavier, with a very pleasant give to it - since it was not skin tight, I did not see any need for Spanx or shapewear - nothing negative showed. I loved that this dress was still flattering even though I have a smaller bust...I'm barely a B, but I thought this dress looked amazing. The great thing about this dress is that I believe it would compliment a wide range of bust sizes...there was plenty room for more, but it did not gape or look too big on me.
Thanks RTR!! Always a great experience.
