I did not want to take this off at the end of the night
I usually wear a 2 or 4 in dresses, but since designer clothes tend to run a little smaller, I had planned to order a 4 and get 6 as a backup. Right before my delivery date I checked my order and realized I'd ordered a 2 as backup. Certain this wouldn't work, I called RTR. and they shipped a 6 overnight for a nominal cost. The stylist was awesome! Anyway, both the 4 and 6 fit well, but I went with the 6 for the sake of comfort and ease of movement.
I agree with the other reviewers that the neckline is strange, but it didn't bother me at all and I think once you walk away from the mirror, it's not that big of a deal, kind of cool even. A statement necklace is a must though. I loved the cut and felt that it flattered me well, even though it was a little pouchy around the stomach.
I wore this to an awards dinner for my husband in Southern California where I didn't know anyone in advance so I wanted to look respectable, but stylish. This was the perfect dress! I got tons of complements and I even heard people commenting on it as I walked by (in a good way).
My only complaint- and I noticed this in pictures on the website- is that the hem has a crease in it. In fact the whole dress needed some pressing, but the fabric resisted ironing (it's a stiff polyester). But this was not a deal killer. Just a note for the OCD.
Loved this dress! Wish I could keep it! Thanks Rent the Runway!
