Had so much fun I forgot to take a picture
I. love. this. dress. I have a little more weight on right now, so 6 is more normal right now than the 4 in my profile. This dress is so flattering (though I wore spanks just to feel a little more confident in the waist area). The fabric is rich and vibrant, and I actually had a hard time deciding which shoes and accessories to wear because just about everything I tried looked fantastic. I really wish I had snapped a picture or two out of sheer love for the dress. You can wear a normal bra, and it does have the little snaps in the straps, but looking back, I wish I had some additional fashion tape on hand just to better secure my bra straps.
My only reason for not giving a full 5 stars is the new packaging from RTR. Unlike any other time I've ordered, this dress came very creased and wrinkled (and the hanger was broken), so I had to spend about 20 minutes steaming it. While the garment bag looks a little more professional, I was fearful to reuse it and potentially cause more wrinkles pre-wedding. Perhaps adding a hard back to the bag or some tissue paper in the folds of the dress would fix the shipping issues.
