AMAZING DRESS! Super Flattering and Comfortable
I rented this dress for a "vintage encouraged" cocktail attire wedding and it was PERFECT! Received tons of compliments on it all night. It was a tiny bit long on my 5'1'' height, but only the lace part, so the actual length of the dress wasn't too long, and it was great for a wedding to not have it be TOO short. The lace on the shoulders also covered the area of the top of my arms that I consider a problem area that I don't like, so that was perfect. It was a bit tighter in the bust than throughout since I have a larger bust, but it worked fine. After reading the reviews I tried the medium and the small and the medium was a little big throughout, but also had WAY too much room in the lace at the top and looked terrible in the back. The small was slightly tighter in the chest, but looked WAY better overall. I think many of the reviews I read suggested sizing down if you weren't sure, and I would have to say I agree with that. LOVE this dress and wish I could've kept it - probably also going to rent it in the blue color sometime, and perhaps try the similar smaller strapped style as well (someone at the wedding was also wearing that one from RTR as well and she looked great!!).
