Unfortunately, I didn't get to wear this dress as both sizes I ordered were too small.
This dress was my first choice to wear at my dance studio's Holiday Ball, and although I checked with the RTR stylist over the phone about what sizes to order, both sizes were too small in the bust area and I couldn't zip up the dress. I usually wear a 2, so I ordered a 2R and 4R. The dress fit everywhere else around my body, but if you're a size 2 but a 34B or bigger, you won't be able to zip the dress up at the top. Still, my back-up dress that I ordered (and have already given an excellent, 5-star review), the red Carmen Marc Valvo dress, turned out to be the perfect dress as it was probably better suited for dancing than this one would have been.
I'm still considering ordering this dress for another formal dance event next year, but would definitely go with a larger size - at least a 6R.
