Awkward fit

Too large in the top. Draped weirdly on me. I would recommend trying this one on beforehand if you have access to an RTR showroom location.

I liked the lace and one shoulder combo. Unique LBD.

Fit well. The zipper was a little tricky though. Overall cute dress and I was happy with it.

Only a little big! It still fit me well and looked great! Everyone LOVED it. It's hard to tell from the photo but the whole dress has a lace overlay, it's so beautiful! I recommend ordering your backup size a size smaller. All in all, wonderful, beautiful dress!

I LOVE this dress. It is my favorite dress that I have rented so far. Rented for a friends wedding and was getting compliments all night long. I didnt want to take it off and cannot wait to rent it again!

I have several one-shoulder Shoshanna dresses in a size 4. To be safe, I ordered this dress in a 4 and a 6, and the 4 was too big. The lace sort of layed funny on the shoulder and it was too big in the waist. I haven't lost weight. i think this particular dress - not style- is running large.

I rented this dress for a wedding reception and it was beautiful and comfortable to wear all night. A 6 is my standard Shoshanna size, but it wasn't available for my date so I ordered a 4 and an 8. The 4 fit perfectly and was definitely not too tight. It definitely runs larger than a usual Shoshanna dress so keep that in mind. The dress was the perfect party length, sophisticated and fun.

Runs very large! I sized down based on the reviews and it was still too large for me to wear. So beautiful though- I may rent again in a different size.

This dress was beautiful! I rented this for my homecoming and everyone loved it. It's very comfortable and i had no complaints! After reading other reviews i knew that i needed to size down. I am 5 "10 and a size 2 so i ordered a size 0 and it fit perfectly. It hit mid thigh on me. I would rent this dress again!

Ran way too large for my figure. Would highly recommend sizing down and adding a belt with some embellishment to define a waistline. Not really a hit with my bf, so probably not going to rent again.

I am usually a 6 so I ordered this is a 6 with an 8 backup because I'm curvy, but it was too big! It was super cute though!

My first choice dress was enormous, and this was my perfect saving grace!

This dress was amazing! It is so flattering! I loved the fit and style of the dress. It was in great condition and was so comfortable. I ordered at 12 and a 10, and the 10 was much better -- size down!

This is going to sound weird, but you are exactly the same size/height/shape as me and so I'm so glad I stumbled upon your critique of this dress-it solidified it as my choice for a friends wedding! :)

Very pretty - runs large

The dress is very pretty in person but the fit is a bit off. Definitely order down for your backup size! I usually wear a 6 and the 4 was a little loose in the waist and bust, and not as flattering as I had hoped. I ended up wearing my second dress.

Really classy

I rented this for a holiday dinner at a country club. It was beautiful and very comfortable the whole night. I'm usually a 4 up top and a 6 on the bottom, and the 2 fit me perfectly all over. This was my first rental, and it was so easy! Can't wait to rent again.

I got incredible compliments on this dress. Everyone really loved it, and I did too!

I absolutely love this dress! It was prefect for my sorority semi-formal. It is so flattering. However, it does run big. I almost didn't believe the other reviews, but it does run really big. I wore the 4 and I usually wear a 6.

Loved This Dress!

I wore it to my school's semi-formal dance and got so many complements on it! It ran a large, so I ordered a size smaller and it fit well. I would recommend tying a ribbon around the waist because it gives more definition and adds the finishing touch to the dress. But overall, it was very comfortable and I am so happy I ordered this one!

Prettier in Person

I usually wear a 4, but it was too big in this dress. Be sure to size down. The 2 fit perfectly. I wore this to a NYE formal work event and it was perfect. Super comfortable too.

My dress stood out from an array of sparkly and/or tight black dresses.

I wore this dress to a formal NYE party. It was beautifully made and very flattering. Be sure to size down as it runs large.

Classic

I had a baby a couple months ago and still have a bit of tummy to lose. This dress is perfect because it is elastic around the waist so it's comfy yet still very flattering. I would have given it 5 stars but it's not the best dress I've ever worn. But it worked for a night wedding well!

Perfect Choice!

I rented this for an engagement party and received tons of compliments! I usually wear a size 6, but read the reviews that this dress ran large so I ordered a 4 with a 6 as the backup. The 4 fit much better. I was worried about the dress being too short (I'm 5'9"), but it was a great length, just short enough without making me uncomfortable! The only reason why I rated it a 4 and not a 5 is because the dress had a couple of snags in the lace, nothing that anyone else would really notice though. I wish I could have fit in the size 6 because it was in perfect condition.

Perfect LBD

I rented this dress for a cocktail-attire engagement party. Very pretty, high-quality lace. Much prettier in person, I loved the cap sleeve. The skirt is full, but because of the quality and weight of the lace it falls really beautifully and will flatter all body types. I suggest going by torso measurements for sizing. Lovely dress!

Great dress for a 2 year anniversary celebration

I rented this dress for my 2 year anniversary dinner. The lace is much prettier in person. I rented a 2 and 4 and I was able to wear the 2. It definitely runs large and the elastic waistband was a plus during the dinner. The dress was very simple and classic and I'd definitely recommend it for a dinner date or upscale-casual event.

Great Dress!

I read other reviews that this dress runs large--it does! I have a few Shoshanna dresses and normally wear a 6 so I ordered a 4 and 6 in this dress but definitely could not have worn the 6. The 4 worked well but if ordering a backup I would definitely order a size smaller than you actually wear and not bigger. The shipping was very prompt and the return was so easy. I will definitely rent again in the future!

Nice fit

I wore this to a wedding, and overall it was a great fit. Looked good and fit well on curves. It's flattering for wide hips. The top was a bit roomy (and I wear a 34DD) so I had to pin the strapless side to keep my bra from showing. Other than that it was a great choice.

I wore this one shoulder lace dress two weddings on the same night in February and it was perfect. I am a big fan of Shoshanna dresses, they are my go to for every occasion. I received so many complements at both weddings!

Arrived earlier than expected and I couldn't believe I got it for an extra day free of charge :)

I was extremely pleased with this dress and would definitely recommend it to others. I received so many compliments and it was super comfortable yet sexy at the same time. I loved this dress and I would definitely rent it again! I rented a size 8 and 6 and wore the 8. The 6 fit me better from the waist down and the 8 was better from the waist up. I went with the 8 for comfort.

Great dress!

I absolutely love this dress! I rented this dress for an evening wedding, and was so happy with my decision. While it's hard to see the details of this dress in the pictures, the lace is beautiful. It hit a few inches above my knee, making it the perfect length - not too short but showing some leg. The dress does run big, I found that the 4 was too loose on the top (I usually wear a 4), but the 2 fit perfectly. Love this dress, can't wait to order it again!

The picture does not do the dress justice, the lace detail is beautiful! The dress does run very large in the chest area, even the 8 had plenty of room.

could've made it work

As recommended by RTR, I went down a size for this dress. This was a back up so I only received a size 2. There was still quite a bit of space in the top part, but since there is some wire boning the top still holds it shape. I ended up wearing a different dress that fit better, but this was a close second since I could've worn it and no one would've notice the extra space on top. Like the model shows, I still had a defined waist despite the fabric layers. I have a 26" waist and 36" hips.

Got many compliments on this one!

I was very very pleased with this dress. Definitely get a size smaller than you think you would wear. It was super comfortable which is huge for me because I love to dance and move around especially at weddings! I didn't need to wear a bra but you could definitely wear a regular strapless if you like. I added a pink flower pin on the side because I wanted a little dash of color since I was also wearing black shoes. I would definitely recommend this little black dress!

My RTR unforgettable moment was feeling beautiful in the dress the whole night. People was just looking at us when we were walking down the street.

I'm a first time renter & this was the dress I ordered. But I can honestly say I was very happy with it. It does run large for its size, so instead of wearing a size 8, I wore a size 6. It was definitely a better fit for me. One thing I love about this dress was the detailing of the lace!

Being able to wear such a well made dress!

This dress is classic, sophisticated, and truly the perfect LBD. It was extremely comfortable and I received many compliments. Based on previous reviews stating that the dress runs large, I ordered both the size 0 and 2. I normally wear a size 2 but ended up wearing the 0, which fit perfectly.
