Did not fit the way I expected based on reviews; had to return :(
I read every review before choosing a size for a rental. I wanted to wear a kitten heel (1") to this event so I would be comfortable, so I figured I should order the regular length (based on several reviews that said girls who were 5'6" and wore 3" heel thought the regular length was perfect. Unfortunately, with my 1" kitten heel this dress was nearly 2" off the ground. Aside from that, I usually wear between a 6 and an 8, so wanted to order those two sizes. RTR was out of the 8, but I read several reviews that said the dress was so stretchy, that it was better to size down so that it fit nicely. The 6 fit, but looked terrible because it was stretched tight right across my stomach and with the sequence it just was not flattering. Also, this dress made my small chest look even smaller. Haha, soo, overall, not the dress for someone with my body type. However, I wound up returning the dress to the NYC showroom and getting a dress that I liked much better (see my review for the Badgley Mischka Screen Siren Gown). The go-to-girls were super friendly and helpful (as usual)!
