Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I'm 5'10'', 130 lbs and a size 4. I read the reviews thoroughly before purchasing the dress but went ahead and ordered it because Tibi dresses are so beautiful. I wore this to a Napa rehearsal dinner.
The dress was preeeetty short (as I expected--but be aware!) and oddly enough, tight in the hips/rear. I have no hips so I was surprised to find that it would be tight on me, since I'd think my body type would work for this dress.
The dress is designed to be tight in the thighs/hips but loose in the top. It's a bit of an awkward fit, made better with a belt. Still, if you have small/regular sized breasts (I'm a 34B) you will have much more room in the top, especially in the armpit area (which was not flattering).
The print is beautiful, but I wouldn't let a hypothetical BFF rent this dress, so I'll advise that the fit is too unusual to be worth betting on with an RTR order. I purchased this as a $20 backup dress through an RTR deal so it was worth the gamble for me. Not quite worth it--but close.
