Wore this as the ball dropped on NYE!
This fit well, it was a bit tough to zip with the wiring but I didn't find the bust to be too tight (as some other reviews mentioned). The leopard pattern was very subtle. Cute for NYE!

Perfect LBD
The silhouette is classic and perfect for any occasion. Ordered as a last minute swap for another dress. A tried and true style for petite ladies. The bust was a little tight but I made it work. Otherwise very flattering and comfortable.

Super comfy dress. Didn't need to adjust or pull it down or tuck anything in all night!
The tulip bottom was awesome for dancing, but be careful crossing your legs :) I could see how the top could be a little loose. I have tiny boobs and usually wouldn't need a bra in a dress like this but wore a strapless one just to fill it out.

Fun party dress
Very hard to zip up, if you have a large rib cage, maybe order a size up. Loved the dress though and got lots of compliments.

Good LBD for a work event
I rented dresses for a back tie event at work, it was comfortable and not too bare. Other reviewers noted that the top was tight - I am a 32A and I definitely agree that it could be a tight fit for a larger chest size. I wore it with a bold graphic statement necklace (black, white, neutral) and it looked fun.

Felt sophisticated with the dress but was able to dance comfortably!
The dress is very pretty and elegant...perfect for an evening wedding in Miami. The bottom half is a tulip style, so like other reviewers mentioned, it has a lot of room for dancing and for those of us with larger bottoms! I usually wear a 2 on top and am a 4/6 on the bottom. Reviewers said to go up a size for backup...I wish I had gone down. I wore a 2 (and had a 4 as backup) but felt the 0 would have fit me better. As a pear shaped gal with a small bust the 2 was a little loose on top (wore a bra to fill it out). The 0 would have been fine on my bottom since the skirt is loose and so forgiving. I paired the dress with black patent peep toes, some multicolor bangles, and some pretty dangly earrings. Overall, comfortable dress, very forgiving (aka no Spanx needed), but runs a little big.

It fit great and I got so many compliments!
I wore this dress to a wedding with my boyfriend (and was also meeting his parents for the first time). I fit into the smaller size that I had ordered (which was a huge confidence boost!). I got so many compliments and felt comfortable dancing all night. It was also comfortable to sit and eat in. The only place I was slightly concerned about fit was the bust, and that was snug in the 4.

Not quite the perfect fit!
This dress was a bit big, I had recently lst a little weight so I think the 8 would have been better. I had to pin it to my bra. It was almost too short with me being 5'11". Liked the overall design tho.

Chic!
I have a small bust, so it was a little loose up top. For someone who normally doesn't wear lots of patterns and prints, I liked that this was very subtle.

Ok, but not great.
This dress was so beautiful on the hanger! I wanted to love it, but it just didn't fit great. When I tried on the 6 the top was too big, especially around the bust and armholes. When I tried on the 4 the top part fit but then it was a bit too tight around the bottom for me.

Wish I Could Have Made it Work
I rented this dress for a fancy night out celebrating my fiance's birthday. There was only a size 10 available so I couldn't rent the size 8 (which would have fit perfectly). As much as I tried to make the 10 work, it was just too large all over. I was so upset because the dress is gorgeous in person and would be very flattering for any body type. Need to find a new event so I can rock this out again soon!

Pretty but small up top
I was disappointed in this dress. The fabric is nice and I love the fit of the dress, but I was spilling over on the right side. I have large breasts (D to DD) so I think that was the problem. I had to return the dress and wear my backup dress. Such a bummer. If you are smaller than me up top, I think you will really Iike it!

Gorgeous dress
Fabric is luxurious and looks even better in person. Dress is cut well to camouflage a little belly. Unfortunately this was my back up dress and I only ordered one size. I could not zip it over my bust and which I would have ordered up a size.

Cute but way too small up top
SUCH a cute dress, but was just too small around my chest. When I rent, I usually order 4-6 depending on designer, but upon reading reviews went with a 6 and an 8... wish I would've went 8 and a 10, a 10 would have fit perfectly. I would give this 5 stars if it fit! I can get zipper up but it digs into under-arms and doesn't look very flattering.

Great dress that received a lot of compliments!
I'm usually a size 6 in all Shoshanna dresses but this one was extra tight in the bust (I'm a 36B). While I could get into it, I figured a night of eating, drinking and dancing would not help the situation. So I wore the size 8 which was much more comfortable in the bust but too big in the hips. Fortunately it was black so it was harder to tell.

Amazing dress!
I actually rented another dress for my event and when it arrived it did no fit, I called RTR and they overnighted me this one. Amazing customer service! I rented a size 4 and 6. The size 6 fit better but was definitely tight zipping up in the bust area. The skirt hid my mommy tummy and I really felt very comfortable the whole night. I received a ton of compliments. The picture does not do the dress justice. It was a really great experience and I will definitely rent from them again and again.

This was my backup dress. I am usually a size 4 and have a 34D bust. The 4 would not zip up on the side! I recommend going a size up for this one. Luckily I had ordered another dress that was perfect

Luxurious style wrapped up in value & convenience!
I rented this dress for a friend's wedding & what a wonderful experience. My dress arrived exactly when it was supposed to. The dress was clean,well packaged & wrinkle-free. As I am normally a size 6, I ordered the 6 and the 8 after reading the reviews that said the dress ran small. The reviews were spot-on. The 6 fit everywhere but the bust. I would definitely recommend ordering the size above. I wore the 8 & it fit perfect. The fabric of the dress was very high quality, sturdy & buttery soft. The wrap style made it very comfortable & hid my belly pouch nicely after eating. I will definitely be renting again.

Subtle print that won lots of compliments up close!
The print was so cute, subtle from afar but up close I got so many compliments. I had to attend a Jungle Chic Gala, so the black leopard print was the perfect match! The fit was tight around the ribs, I wanted a 8 but it wasn't available. RTR had contacted me about the 8 being unavailable but I missed the emails so they sent me other size 8s but this print was so cute, I squeezed in! The only tight area was around the ribs, so it wasn't uncomfortable.

Weird fit- did not zip up due to my 34D chest- strange for Shoshanna dress
So, I loved this dress but it did not fit me at all in the chest. I picked it out for a bridesmaid dress and for most Shoshanna dresses I am a 4/6 and have never had an issue with the bust with any of her items. Read all of the reviews and thought this should be a perfect fit. Was super disappointed...

I felt so fancy in this dress!
The dress fit great! The 0 was a bit tight on my ribcage, so I went with the 2 to have some extra breathing room. Length was great for me as a petite woman.

Too small up top...
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to wear this dress at all... which was a bummer, it being my first rental. I ordered a 2 - which was way too small in the bust but fit perfectly at the waist - and a 4 - which was too snug to breathe up top but a too large at the waist. Thankfully, I rented a back up dress which fit like a gem and renewed my faith in RTR!

Great dress but did not wear.
I rented this dress in a size 4 and size 6 as well as another Shoshanna dress just in case for an indoor summer wedding. The 4 fit well except that it was a bit too short (I am 5'10). I was worried that the tulip skirt would also fly open since it is not sewn together. I would have worn it, but since I ordered a 3rd option, I went with the safer option (Shoshanna vicious venom dress). Nonetheless, this is a great dress --it is very cute with the subtle leopard print!

This dress was great. I ordered this as my back-up and didn't end up wearing it to my event, but I would order it again. The pattern on the dress is very subtle and classy. I ordered this in a 2 and had a difficult time zipping it (side zipper). I am a bit bigger in the bust and my ribs are large - I did end up getting it zipped in the end - I just needed a little extra help.

Subtle leopard is classy with a hint of sassy
Loved this leopard print dress. Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear the size 6 - there is no give in the bust area so I wasn't able to zip it up all the way (I'm a 34 DD). I would definitely rent again but order a bigger size.

Didn't end up wearing the dress. Had to find something else quickly.
I ordered the size 2 and 4...I'm normally between the two sizes. The bottom half of the dress was actually a little roomy in the 4, and perfect in the size 2. However, the top of the dress was too tight to even zip up in the 2, and very snug in the 4. I didn't end up wearing either one, as I felt like the 4 was too roomy in the seat. I was very disappointed.

LOVE this dress!
I rented this dress for a wedding and absolutely fell in love with it! Got tons of compliments and it was so fun to wear. I am very petite but the size 0 fit well. Length was perfect- shorter without being too short. My husband loved it too- I was sad to send it back!

Classy Leopard
I rented this dress for an all women leopard holiday party, and it was perfect. I didnt want to wear a tacky leopard dress, and was excited to have found this. It fits pretty true to size. I loved the length- mid thigh, making it classy and not too short (I'm 5'10" with a long body). I'm a pear shape, so the cut of the skirt hid my larger hips perfectly. Not sure it would fit a large chest. The leopard print shows up nicely in photographs. It is very subtle, but that is what i liked about it. I did get a call the day before my event stating that they did not have the dress in stock. But after a lot of positive thinking, they called back saying they found the 6! whew! I was nervous.

Subtle and Simple
I rented this for a wedding. It's a cute, simple dress. The leopard print is subtle, which keeps it classy but gives it a little sass. The size 4 worked for me, I'm 5'8"/128 lbs./32C/athletic build. I don't think the bust would fit larger cup sizes, so if you have large girls, beware. And be prepared to accessorize if you want something more stand out than a simple LBD.

Ringing in 2012 in style!
I rented this dress for dinner and a party on New Year's Eve. The material is much more beautiful in person than in the picture -- you can really see the detail. This was my first experience with and off-the-shoulder dress and it fit nicely, although the top was very fitted so bustier girls might want to size up (I'm a C-cup and was just able to zipper it up). Overall I was very happy with this rental!
