The look on my husband's face when I walked out in this dress was unforgettable :)
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
Rented this dress for a big dinner date on Valentine's Day. It arrived in like-new condition right on time and RTR even included some samples and goodies in my bag, making me a customer for life!
The dress is gorgeous, beautiful lace detail. I found the fit to be true to size, maybe a teeeeny bit small. I am usually a solid size 0, and I rented the 0 ... I couldn't get a 2 for backup b/c it wasn't available on my desired date. The 0 ended up being more fitted on me than the sample picture is on the model. I probably could've worn the 2 and ended up with a less fitted look like the model has. I would recommend sizing up for your second back-up dress.
Sleeves fit very snug. I could see this being a problem for ladies with larger biceps / upper arms. Also the length was shorter than expected. I am 5'6" and it was just a tad shorter than I would've liked. It worked out okay, because I was just going to dinner .... but definately I would say this is not the dress if you will be dancing or raising your arms up. I had to strategically lay my napkin in my lap the moment I sat down to avoid giving everyone at the restaurant a peep at may panties! The length advertised here says 34" long .... NOT SO for my size 0, I laid it down on the floor and measured and it is 32" long from the neckline down to the hem, 30" long from the shoulder to hem. Maybe the larger sizes are a tad longer?? But if you are planning to rent the 0, I would not recommend it if you are taller than 5'6" or so.
My only other complaint is that the nude inner lining kept peeking out the bottom of the hem from underneath the lace. (you can sort of see this in my pictures) This forced me to constantly tug at the dress everytime I was standing to try and keep the lace over the lining. Not a big deal, but a small annoyance.
Overall, I absolutely loved this dress, I felt sexy but still somewhat conservative because I had my chest and arms covered and the fit is not super tight. I got a million compliments and I'm pretty sure my husband loved it even more than I did! Wish I could keep it!
I wore this with nude patent peep-toe's and a sparkly metallic gold clutch, big chandelier earrings and a large bling-y bracelet.
