I adore this dress! It's beautiful, comfortable, and elegant. I would definitely rent it again.
I needed a last-minute dress for a gala in NY, so I went to the RTR storefront on 18th street. I'm including the picture from the dressing room since my pictures from the gala are dark and don't do it justice. I really didn't know exactly what I wanted, aside from the fact that I wanted to wear black. The stylist who was helping me was super nice and she had a great eye - I hadn't even seen this one, so I'm glad that she took the initiative to pull it out. This dress was exactly what I needed. It fit like a glove and the petite size was perfect with my modest heels. I'm only 5'4" so a lot of the other dresses I tried on were way too long. I'm usually a 6, so the sizing was accurate. What I loved above all else was how comfortable this dress was. It was a snug fit, yes, but it really sucked me in in all the right places and yet didn't feel too tight or constricting. I could move, dance, (and eat!) without feeling like I was going to burst out of the seams. I think it's ideal for those with an hourglass figure. I have a small waist and wide hips/butt. I usually shy away from something this form-fitting, but this dress was so flattering that I didn't even need to wear Spanx. I got so many compliments at the event, and even at the store when I was trying it on. Even my mom - who thinks everything is "too tight" or "too sexy" - said it was classy and beautiful. If you have a formal event to attend, this dress will NOT disappoint!
