Feeling like a lady!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
The dress is among the most stunning, high quality garments I have ever had the privilege of holding in my own hands and wearing. My husband is a man who appreciates fashion (thanks to his wife!) and commented that "this is one of the most beautiful dresses you've ever worn." He's seen a lot of my RTR and personal choices, so this was high praise!
Details: the bodice is a bit snug, so no enhancing or padded undergarments! The skirt is more voluminous than you initially recognize, so it lays out beautifully as you sit down. Extremely comfortable and flattering - hard not to feel like a million bucks in this one!
I appreciate dresses that show a modest cut - no cleavage and knee length - can still be incredibly sexy and flattering. Not that I'm opposed to showing either cleavage or legs, but most of the time I prefer dresses that allow you to wear a regular bra so you can forget about it and focus on the event/company/other fun stuff. Strapless bras uncomfortable, and it's hard to be sexy when you're tugging at your dress all night, so it's nice to see great options for all tastes and preferences.
Final note: I rented the 2 because a 0 was not available, though I'm guessing 2 might be the smallest size since I'm typically a 0 and this fit quite well and was the one I wore to my 7th anniversary dinner. I got the 4 as a backup and tried it on just to see and it was, if anything, event more snug than the 2! When I held the two dresses next to one another they were identical. There were no size tags on either dress, just a handwritten number, so perhaps a mislabeling occurred here.
