This is a lovely dress that looks better in person than it photographs or appears online.
This was a replacement backup dress after the one I ordered was unavailable. It didn't stand out to me online, but it's lovely in person. With a camera flash, it looks white, but it's actually a pale green/eau de nil color, with a cream and silver overlay. It's very elegant, and even though it's fairly form-fitting, it's surprisingly comfortable and forgiving. The built-in bra is convenient, but doesn't offer much support for a larger bust; I added a strapless bra and wished I'd also done clear straps. But, someone with a chest smaller than C or D would likely find the dress top too loose. I'm 5'7" and was able to wear kitten heels; any taller, and you should opt for a Long, since it does have a slight train.
The specific dress I received showed some wear-- there were slight pulls in the lace, and the sash was not there. But still: it was a beautiful dress, and I felt great in it.
This was my first experience with RTR. Even though the dress I reserved didn't make it to me, and the one that did wasn't quite as expected, customer service was great. I'm leaving with an overwhelmingly positive impression of the RTR experience.
