I was actually given the wrong dress, but it's pretty nevertheless. Dress received: Open Book Sheath
I've been eyeing this dress ever since I came across the RTR website, and I was really happy when the fully booked status for my size became available on the date I needed it. But to my surprise and slight disappointment, I was actually given this dress in my size and my backup size: https://www.renttherunway.com/shop/designers/shoshanna_dresses/openbooksheath If I had the ability to, I would have left my review for that dress on its page.
The Open Book Sheath dress is obviously similar to the Dear Diary Sheath dress. Same color, similar style. It's really gorgeous in person, and I received a ton of compliments!
I actually was able to fit in my normal size of 4, and the free backup size of 2. The only difference for me was the length of the dress. If you lifted your arms up, both dresses will show more than you bargained for. But for me, the size 4 provided more coverage for my butt. Another downside was the slip in the inside of the dress. It came riding up, so I had to make sure to pull it down constantly. However, despite all this, I loved the dress!
I would have rated this 5 stars if I had actually received the correct dress. The Open Book Sheath dress is cheaper by $5 to rent, so really, I was overcharged because of the incorrect dress given.
