Comfy dress, beautiful colors and unique styling, but the fit could have been a little better
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first RTR experience, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I loved the unique design and coloring of this dress, and that definitely didn't disappoint. I rented a 6 and an 8 based on recommendations, but I ended up wearing the 8. You could definitely tell it had been worn several times, but I don't think it was too noticeable when the dress was being worn.
The fit of this dress could have been better. It was loose in the bust and not really designed for girls with hips and a butt. I am a true hourglass, and this dress made my hips look pretty wide. I felt it made me look a lot bigger than I really am. The hem also hit my legs a little lower than I would have liked. It came below my knees.
That being said, the dress was still very comfortable and I got many compliments. The material was light enough that I didn't burn up at an outdoor wedding in August. The blue detail on the bottom of the dress really shows up vibrantly in person, which made me glad I chose turquoise accessories. Also, I LOVED the pockets! Thanks to them, I really didn't even need to carry a clutch. Overall, I would recommend this dress; however, I would probably suggest renting a back up style especially if you are shorter or have hips and curves.
