Comfortable to wear all day, but nothing special.
I was disappointed when this dress arrived. As noted in other reviews (which I should have read more carefully) it's a completely different dress than shown on the model. Imo, the actual lace on this dress looks a bit cheap and casual. The edges/seams throughout this dress were frayed. Overall, the whole thing just appeared somewhat worn. Despite my reservations, I decided to try it on. I'm usually a true 12 and the 10 fit better so, as noted, this dress runs large. The silhouette was flattering. The deep V neck showed just enough cleavage and my fuller hips fit comfortably. I paired it with black pumps and sparkly jewelry to dress it up a bit. I also considered a black belt but went without as it was more comfortable without. The dress was comfortable to wear all day, and I suspect it will photograph well (haven't seen any pics yet) as the cut was good. But, I certainly didn't feel "special" in it. Considering that, I could have just worn something already in my closet.... the only reason I didn't was because I didn't want to add a dry cleaning bill to my weekend expenditures after spending $ to rent this dress. This was my first experience with RTR and I'm not sure I'd do it again based on this dress.
