My first military ball and this dress saved the day!
After my first choice wasn't available (another dress in a Petite size), and the substitutes sent weren't flattering to my body type or were too long, RTR came to my rescue and overnighted this (and another dress) as a substitute. This one fit so wonderfully, I never even tried on the other! This dress was so flattering and absolutely comfortable.
As other reviewers mentioned, a size down from your normal dress size will probably be the right size in this style. Also, I agree that the sequins are on the bronze side of gold. The petite length was perfect for me with 3" heels. I have a larger chest (36D) and I did not wear a bra. I added inserts to push up a little, but that was all. I wore Spanx underneath to smooth my stomach area, since that's where I carry most of my weight, but I definitely could have skipped those if I had preferred.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about RTR - amazing customer service, dresses were all great (even if they didn't quite fit me) and the efforts to get this one to me were truly above and beyond. You've won a fan for life!
