I wore this to prom and so many people told me I looked like a princess! I definitely felt like one!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was amazing! The only reason I was able to wear it was because the day before my original order was supposed to arrive (I was going to wear the Heaven on Earth gown by Theia in size 0R) I received an email from RTR informing me that the woman renting the dress before me had not sent it back yet, so I had to choose another dress. This was the worst part about my RTR experience, but the upside was that I could choose any replacement regardless of the price! The fashion gods must have been in a good mood, because this dress was available so I jumped right on the offer! Like it says, this dress does run small, but for me the 2 was still a little too big. It might just be because I am so petite and have a very small chest area, but the back of the dress was way too big when I put the straps right on my shoulders. At first I had a mini-crisis because I thought that the dress wouldn't fit, but I realized the solution was to wear the straps off the shoulder, which I think looked even prettier than where they were supposed to go! Because I'm so flat, I decided to wear a bra to add some shape, but the only issue here was that you could see it when I bent over because the dress didn't fit perfectly. With four inch heals, it was a couple centimeters off the ground, which was perfect because there is so much material so you don't want to step on it. The dress ended up being so fun for prom! So many people came up to me to compliment me, and I felt so unique compared to all the tacky prom dresses that all look alike. It was fun to dance in, except when I got uncomfortable and took off my shoes I had to hold it up so that no one would step on it. With all that in mind, this is a great dress and RTR has really great service, but be prepared to have back up choices in case tragedy strikes, (and to return your dress on time so you don't ruin someone else's experience!), and also to be patient and make the dress work as best as you can.
