Beautiful color...however runs EXTREMELY SMALL!
I wore this to a Memorial Ball, after reading other reviews I ordered a size larger then I normally am (I'm normally an 8 so I ordered a 10L since I'm 5'9) However when the dress came I couldn't get the (side zipper) zipped up past my rib cage (even with help) And another dress I ordered as a backup had a broken zipper! I called RTR's customer service and they were able to over-night me the next size up however, they didn't have the long length in that size. The 12R came around 4pm the day of my event, I expected it to be a little big however it fit perfect, I was a little pressed for time since I had to leave at 4:30 and had to steam the dress still, but it all ended up working out. The dress was very unique and the blue color is very pretty (it looks much more vibrant in person) I had to run out and find VERY short heels since the dress was in a regular length, I would have much preferred a long length! My only other small complaint about the dress is that the small snaps and hook that keep the front part of the dress to the side came undone while dancing a couple times, not a huge deal or anything) Overall this dress was very pretty, it's not something I would have normally picked just looking at the model picture, but seeing it on "real" people is what made me decide to rent it and I'm glad I did (just make sure to SIZE UP....I went up 2 sizes then I normally wear!)
