Fun and original dress with a fabulous neckline and sheer back
I rented this dress for a winter wedding in Chicago. Great purple color, the overlay material was fun, and the sheer sections were sexy. I LOVED the back. I received compliments all night from people, it was a big hit. My ONLY complaint was that when the dress arrived, it showed up looking a little rough around the hem line. I actually called RTR customer service, and they were very helpful. They did say that the dress did not really "hold up that well, with wear." It looked like the dress was a good quality dress, but with the delicate nature of the material in the sheer sections it was just prone to damage with extended wear/multiple rentals. I was slightly disappointed with the condition because the hem made it look worn, but I didn't have enough time for them to send something else. Ultimately, I ended up having to wear it anyway (honestly, it was insured and I told the girl over the phone I was going to do it before I did so I don't feel bad sharing this, but I cut the few centimeters of gross fallen hem off the top netting before heading to the wedding... I tried fashion tape to hold it up first, but that failed because it was too small in width to stay up and the netting material wasn't conducive to the Hollywood fashion tape hem.
