Perfect for a summer shower!

I wore this dress for a summer bridal shower. It was perfect. It looks really short on the model, but it hit me right at mid-thigh. It has a built-in corset that hooks in the back, so support wasn't a problem. It also has really cute stitching detail that you can't see in the photo. I was really happy with it.

Loved the dress and necklace together!

Loved it! It fit great and looked amazing on! I loved pairing it with the neon pink necklace and nude wedges to dress it up. I recommend renting this for any summer event:)

Standing out in this fun and flirty dress!

This dress is so cute for summer, and the colors are even more vibrant and gorgeous in person! If you have a small bust like me, there may be a little extra room in the bodice, but still totally wearable. It hit me slightly above mid-thigh, which was perfect!

I got more compliments on this look than anything I've ever worn before. It went perfectly with my yellow leather clutch and the yellow flip-flops that were coincidentally handed out on the dance floor.

I received so many compliments on this dress. It was perfectly light for the humid wedding reception. It never sagged or fell down, so I didn't need to pull it up once during the night. I did not want to return it!

Loved the colors and good fit!

I loved this dress and it fit me very well. The zipper was a little tricky but other than that it was well made. This dress is great if you are going on a casual date or party with nice sandals or can be dressed up and be worn to a more formal event with the right jewelry and shoes.

This was my 2nd RTR dress and again, a great experience. Dress was shipped to my hotel with no issues. Overall, the dress was pretty & light, but the boning in the dress wasn't comfortable. I found myself adjusting the dress because the boning was stabbing me. Customer service was great especially since I have my boyfriend the responsibility of returning the dress and he only returned one of the sizes. Customer service was flexibile in having us return the other size 2 days late.

Go w/ smaller sizes

I wear a 0 in dresses typically but wear 0-4 in pants depending on the store. I wore the 0 in this dress and it fit great. I'm pretty small chested so it was a little loose there. Definitely use the dress tape but LOVEEE the dress, got so many compliments!!

flattering fit

I ordered this dress as a backup but sadly didn't get a chance to wear it. It's dressy enough for a wedding but could be styled more casually as well. Runs very true to size. Great color - I hope to have an opportunity to rent it again, and wear it this time.

Perfect casual wedding

I wore this for a spring garden wedding and it was absolutely perfect for the occasion. I have a full bust (but small frame) so dresses can sometimes be tricky. The size 0 fit pretty well, i ended up pinning the front of the dress to my bra so it didn't slide down and that worked perfectly.

Gorgeous Color and Print

I wore this to a ceremony for my sorority and I got so many compliments! The fabric is heavier than expected, which was nice in the cooler weather. The bust has boning, so a bra is not necessary, and I chose to go without one because I did not want to show any cleavage for the conservative event.

The dress came in great condition with an extra in the next size up just in case.

This dress was perfect for the International Student Organization's Tea Party. It was just the right mix of casual and formal for the first event of the semester. The fit of this dress is amazing! It was very flattering in all the right places :)

Using RTR I found the perfect dress for such a special occasion. With compliments all around, my day couldn't have been better.

I rented this dress for my sister's bridal shower and it fit perfectly. It was comfortable and light to wear in the summer and the colors made it perfect for the casual environment.

I wore this to a graduation and stood out in a crowd of mostly white dresses and felt like a million bucks. It is very flattering and a good length, especially if you are tall.

Loved it!

I ordered a dress for my confirmation and i got an email the day before the dress was supposed to be delivered saying my size was out of stock, so they'd send me a different dress. I was incredibly annoyed at not getting the dress i wanted but they sent me this dress and i loved it, the only thing that was slightly uncomfortable(because i was sitting most of the time) was the boning , there wasn't a lot but it hit me in the right places. but other than that, i absolutely loved it!

Cute pattern!

I wore this dress for my baccalaureate graduation mass and dinner and loved it! It is a beautiful material and perfect length (about 3 inches above the knee). The colors are vibrant and the pattern is so cute. The dress itself is very soft and comfy. Everyone loved it, and I would consider purchasing this dress. Highly recommend it! Note, larger chests might think about going a size up, it fit just right for me and im a small B cup.

Not a dress meant to be worn over and over.

Very cute dress, but it is a linen material and you could tell that it had been worn A LOT. It was covered with pilling. I was a little embarrassed to wear it but didn't have any other choice.

LOVED the dress.

Normally I stay awar from florals but the pattern on this dress was just blurred enough to not be an overstatement. It was about knee length on me and I wore 3inch heels. Very pretty!

Perfect for Vocal Recital!

I wore this dress for a vocal recital and it was incredibly flattering. It hugged my body in all the right places, and the pattern was great. The zipper and bra hook are rather difficult to fasten (I needed other people's help), so be prepared to play around with the dress a bit. Overall, a great piece for a summer wedding/ semi-formal event!

Beautiful and comfortable!

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and it was perfect! Great color, fit, and style. Inside the dress is a "seatbelt" to help keep it up. Typically strapless dresses are hard for me to wear, but this one stayed up without a problem. The size 2 felt more comfortable in the chest area because of my bust, but the size 0 fit as well. Highly recommend this dress!

Didn't wear

I rented this dress in a 6 as a back-up in case another Shoshana dress that I ordered in a 4 was too small. For my size and body type, the 4 was perfect. The colors in this dress were nice and bright though and perfect for summer, especially if you have blue eyes.

Fun, form-fitting floral

I loved this dress! I rented a 4 and 6 and went with the 4 - but could have easily worn the 6 as well - sizes were very similar.I got tons of compliments on this dress and loved the way it fit!

comfortable and casual

This is a fun dress. It's comfortable and runs true to size. It is on the shorter side, especially when you sit down. I found it to be more casual than it appears in the photo but suitable for the churche ceremony of the wedding I attended.

Lots of compliments and the entire experience was super easy!

I ordered the 4 and the 6, but ended up wearing the 6 because it was a little more comfortable in the rib cage area, but both options would have worked. I used gold accessories (strappy sandals, a gold braided bracelet and brushed gold clutch). My favorite part of the dress was the inner corset that kept the top in place the entire night - no pulling up the dress all night. I would definitely recommend this dress for a summer wedding!

Beautiful Pattern!

This dress is very pretty and the linen fabric makes it easy to dress up or dress down. However, because of the fabric, it does pill easily and it doesn't look very polished (especially if it's been worn a bunch of times, which was the case for the size 10). The built in corset is nice and slimming, but the length is a little short! I got a ton of compliments on the pattern of the dress and it was perfect for the rehearsal dinner that I attended.

The weather was PERFECT for this dress

I like this dress a lot. If I'm wearing a strapless dress, I usually wear a size 6, because of my wide rib cage and larger chest, however, I ended up going with the size 4 in this dress. The material wasn't stiff, which was great. The only reason I give this dress a 4 instead of a 5 was because it was a little to large in the waist. It could just be my body, wide rib cage :-/. I wore it in 70 degree weather, with some riding boots, and it felt great! Would rent this dress again.

Perfect for a summer event!!! Couldn't ask for a more flattering color or fit.

I rented this dress for a wedding and was initially worried that it would be too casual since it is sort of a linen-y material. The size 0 was a little big, but because of the boning in the top I wasn't worried about it falling down. Ended up getting so many compliments throughout the day/night. Would definitely rent again!

Received a ton of compliments! Very comfortable and flattering dress.

I wore this to my boyfriend's law school graduation and party after. This was the perfect sundress for a spring or summer day. The fabric was very almost linen-like and very breathable. I love Shosanna dresses with pockets and this was no exception. I want to own this dress and will probably rent it again.

I wore this for my sorority's Spring Formal. Cute and comfy dress!

The material is thicker than I thought it would be, but that was not an issue. However, I have a small waist and a very small bust, a size 0 was a little big on the top and baggy around the waist area. It did not look bad though! Just had to hold my dress up a lot. I would not recommend this for someone with a bust size below a B. Otherwise, I really enjoyed wearing this comfortable and cute dress and received a lot of compliments!

This dress fit perfect, was very comfortable for this casual event, and I loved the vibrant colors.

I have rented several dresses now through RTR, and I have never had a bad experience. I rented this dress for a girls' wine tasting trip for Mother's Day, which turned out to be the perfect choice. It was casual enough for this daytime event but flattering and colorful, which made me feel beautiful and sexy. It was a sunny but very windy day, so I wore a jean jacket with it in the morning, which gave it a youthful, cute look. I have short legs, but the dress still hit above my knees, which is a perfect length for me. I loved the dress and would definitely recommend it for any daytime event or spring/summer wedding.

Vibrant blue, perfect for the weather

This dress was my first RTR experience. I wore it for my college graduation and was my backup after my first dress was delayed in delivery. Customer service was great and overnight shipped this one and I love it! I'm usually a size 4, but it was a little tight in the waist area so I decided to go with the 6 for comfort. The material is light and perfect for springtime. All in all, it is a very pretty dress and I would rent it again!

Looked great at a graduation function!

Fit well but tight on the bust, since I do have a large bust size! The boning became a little pokey after a fee hours but it was manageable. I loved the light linen fabric, it made it really comfortable! I would size up if you are top heavy though, it was snug.
