Sexy & conservative all in one dress!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I ended up really loving this dress more than I thought I would. I wore this to my boyfriend's company holiday party and as dumb as it sounds, this dress is seriously "business in the front, party in the back." The front was conservative and classy enough to meet his co-workers, the back was sexy and added a ton of fun to the look of the dress. The fabric was lined and a little heavy - perfect for a cold night. The fit definitely runs on the small side, as others have said; I am often a size 4 in clothes, and the size 4 did fit like a glove and moved comfortably, but had it been an inch smaller anywhere it would have been too tight. The dress length can make it tricky when selecting shoes - nothing seemed to go quite right. I'm tall, and it still went JUST past the knee. Ended up wearing low heeled strappy sandals, but didn't love that look with it. The dress was also complicated to put on - the strap across the back is sewn on one side and has 3 hooks (adjustable like a bra) on the other side, but you basically have to put the dress ON with the hooks hooked - it is impossible to hook them once the dress is on because of where the hooks are located - and pulling it over my chest while hooked was not easy (plus they kept wanting to come UN-hooked during that process). Still, once it was on, it was extremely comfortable to wear all night and I felt fantastic about the way it looked on my body - it's very slimming and flattering. Would rent it again!
