Great dress, perfect for an outdoor cocktail party!
I got the 8 with a 6 as a back-up. (BTW: they send you both at once, which I didn't realize!) I went with the 8 because it was snug in the hip area. The 6 would have fit everywhere else. Because I chose the 8, the length was longer (which I preferred!), the sleeves were looser (which kept me cool on a humid evening), the bust area was comfortable and not too tight, and the boatneck collar area was very loose. I felt the need to keep a close eye on my bra straps because of that, but was glad to wear a regular bra with the dress! It definitely has some wear and tear, the lining is slipping out below the lace, which I tried to include in the picture. It's an easy enough fix though with some minor adjusting. Also, the dresses are clearly industrially cleaned, out of the garment bag it smelled like old school Dial bar soap. So, rest assured, these things are clean!! I will definitely use RTR again. Trying to order the right size was a bit stressful as this was my first experience.
