Couldn't wear it.

Could not wear this dress it was so small. Waist is incredibly narrow and fabric has zero give.

Great quality, order up if you have boobs!

I'm usually between a 4 and 6... could not wear the 4 because it was pulling so much at the bust (I'm a 34D). Great quality but will order the 6 next time.

Runs small

I am almost always a size 12 in shoshanna and this was too small. The buttons gaped at my ribcage and chest. Would have been cute! Maybe good if you are small chested

A little small up top

The dress ran a little small up to with very little give, but it's a great dress.

The top and bottom sizing aren't quite coordinated

I WANTED to love this dress, but it's all just not quite right. Maybe best for the women with less up top. I had to pin it closed, and even then it felt like I had a gaping hole unless I stood up perfectly straight. The top felt one size smaller than the bottom. The skirt is a lovely, unique shape. Maybe size up one to ensure it fits best.

Lovely dress for work

I felt great in this. It's a good conservative dress for work that still has a little flair. Accentuated a smaller waist and skims over wider hips. Would definitely rent again!

Great fabric

Great fit in length, sleeves, collar, hips - just wasn't a great fit for me in the bust so I had to return it., sadly.

The soft, thin fabric leaves nothing to hide.

The dress is very cute, but if you have any figure flaws, the thin drapy fabric will reveal them. Didn't end up wearing it.

The fabric!! Xoxo

I will start by saying that, due to being short-waisted, I had to size up AND wore spanx. However, it was worth it. It looked so polished and professional. I will definitely rent again.

Ok work dress

Sized up based on other reviews, and the dress fit ok. A bit thin, but overall, it's an ok work dress.

Worked for work

Cute and the skirt has a nice 'swish' but the belt was difficult to tie like in the photos, so I ended up with kind of an awkward knot.

Ease

Very figure flattering, Tight on the torso with bottoms so factor that in if sitting for long time or eating alit. Light weight fun, feminine.

Even my husband liked it!

Nice nursing friendly dress with beautiful flouncy flourishes. Hit me just above the knees. Glad I listened and sized up twice. The bust fit just right.

Cute, but cheap details and odd fabric

This dress is really pretty and I did get compliments on it, however, I wasn't impressed with the details on this piece. The buttons are small and not of great quality. The material seems to attract any and all dirt. It also tends to pull in the stomach area. I would say this runs on the smaller side if you have a larger chest.

Great dress! Highly recommend but size up!

I absolutely loved this dress but I would recommend sizing up! I rent Shoshana all the time and I'm a consistent size 6. The top was very small - I'm a 34D. I used fashion tape to keep the buttons from pulling but the tape would not stick to the fabric. I will be renting again in a size 8 and might have to buy it! I would also note the color is very pretty. It's a lighter navy than what is pictured.

Snug but looked really cute on.

If you have broad shoulders/chest make sure to size up

Such a beautiful dress that hits your curves in all the right places. I am 5'7" and it hit me at the perfect length. Highly recommend!

Had to return

The dress runs small through the stomach and even with Spanx, I couldn't it work. It is a gorgeous dress of very good quality and I wish they had in an 18.
