Fun & Flattering - Perfect for the track!
I tend to avoid buying bright colors and bold patterns, but needed a fun dress for the race track so I figured this was a great chance to try RTR... I was definitely NOT disappointed!! This was a color I would never buy on my own, but after wearing the dress I wish I owned it. Based on the reviews I ordered a size down as my back-up (4) and both the 6 & 4 fit pretty well, but I decided to go with the 6 since we would be running around quite a bit throughout the day. The dress was extremely comfortable, easy to move in, and I'm always a fan of ruching to hide those areas of insecurity ;) The back was very sexy, and it was also my first time giving a backless/strapless/stick on bra a try (I purchased mine from RTR as well). Since the back is open quite wide and shows off a bit of your sides, the long bra "wings" would have stuck out from under the dress (even though they were clear) so all I did was cut & shorten the tabs before pulling off the backing - there was still plenty left over to hold it in place all day. Long enough to not feel self conscious about pulling it down constantly, but flattering enough to feel great it in!
