A complete stranger came up to me the next day to compliment me on the dress - guess that it was pretty memorable!
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Loved the dress for its unique design and bright color that really popped. I rented this dress for a Senior Ball black-tie formal affair and was turning heads all night! From the gold chain neckline, to the revealing back, to the flowing train, this dress is eye-catching from any angle!
However, I almost didn't end up wearing the dress due to small grievances. First, I had difficulty getting the draping in the front to flow correctly. There was a lot of extra material around the torso which got wrinkled easily, making it look frumpy (see pics). Second, there is a seam down the front of the dress which looked a little awkward. In the end, my friends convinced me to wear the dress because the small issues probably wouldn't be noticeable from far away in the dimly lit venue. They were completely right!
My two cents: with this dress, you definitely need the confidence (and great posture!) to rock it in order to overcome the wrinkling/draping issues. Thanks for RTR's fantastic customer service!
