On the dress, the size 6 fit me near perfect. I put athletic for body type because I'm not pear shaped, but I do have hips. I could have worn the 4, but I thought that if I needed to make a quick move through a crowd, the 4 would be limiting. The color looked closer to navy than teal to me, but it was a beautiful color wither way. I also didn't ahve any problems with the length. I don't do mini skirts and was comfortable in this dress standing or sitting. I thought about wearing a slip or spanx, but I didn't think anything would be noticeable enough while I was sitting in a dimly lit reception room. I would disagree with some who said the fabric was cheap, I thought it was a beautiful dress and worked perfectly for an afternoon wedding and evening reception.
I also have to give major props to RTR. I got a call Friday morning that my dresses were not going to arrive. Thankfully they had the Tealrific in both my sizes, but they didn't have my back up dress. RTR offered me another dress free of charge but I needed it for Friday night and there was no way it could make it to Minneapolis in time. They refunded me the back up dress and I received my Tealrific dresses at 8:30 on Saturday morning and received sooooo many compliments on it Saturday night!
