Order your true size

I ordered this as a choice for a black tie wedding and ordered a size up as my impression was that Shoshanna runs small. The dress was way too big, so I couldn't even comment on whether I like the style. Nice fabric-- it arrived entirely wrinkle free.

Peekaboo...sexy classy

This dress was sexy yet classy. Had the little peekaboo of your cleavage, but didn't show too much. I was able to wear a regular bra with this dress, which is a must with a DD bust. I loved how the dress hugged my curves and also showed a little leg with a knee-high slit. I'm 5'6" tall and the regular length was perfect with heels. Runs true to size, in my opinion. Great dress!!

Perfect Kennedy Center Black Tie dress

I rented the 2 and 4. I'm a 34B, 125lb, 5'4". I wore the 2 because the 4 was too loose in the bust. The neck was a bit tight and the overall fit was a tad snug all over, but the dress was otherwise beautiful and I got a lot of comments for the leg slit!

Made my Paris engagement photos perfect

This dress fit beautifully and is a great mix of modern, unique, classy and sexy. I loved the side slits for a little leg but not as much as a front slit. The ruffles on the arms and neck were feminine but not overly so. There is some room in the stomach area which was nice as I was thirteen months pregnant at the time. May seemed a little too big had that not been the case. Wore for my engagement pictures in Paris at the Louvre.

Love!

This dress is beautiful. It is elegant and comfortable. The material is forgiving and you can wear a racerback bra. The keyhole cutout adds a little sexy with cleavage but still demure. My only complaint is that it wasn't long enough. If you are 5'8" and like high heels, this dress will be too short. I had to wear lower heels which I wasn't happy with.

So comfortable and flattering.

I would totally rent this again. I am 6'8" and the regular was too short to wear more than a 2" heel. I would opt for the long in the future. The dress wrinkles but all came out easily with a steamer. Totally flattering and easy to wear.

Perfection

This dress is stunning. It was just right for a black tie wedding at our Museum of Fine Arts. The length was great with 4 inch heels. I found the bust and the waist slightly large but nothing too worrisome. I received many compliments and felt really fantastic in it. We did a sideswept pony a la Blake Lively to dial down the sweetness of the ruffles.

THE. VERY. BEST....dress 'shopping' experience E.V.E.R!!!

What a relief it was to have RTR...I was a little nervous because the majority of 'online shopping' doesn't work for me. But since having my baby, getting out of the house isn't as easy as it sounds, much less to shop for a dress! RTR makes the process so simple & provides the BEST customer service which is hard to come by these days. The dress definitely runs long & just a tad on the overall large side, but thanks to fashion tape & fabulous fabric ...the hem was perfect & I was incredibly comfortable & happy to receive many compliments all night long! Can't wait for my next event...just so I can use RTR again!

Elegant and beautiful

Fit other than the chest was perfect. I have a smaller chest (32C) and always have a hard time finding dresses that aren't too baggy. This dress bulged out a little bit with extra fabric but I don't think it was very noticeable to anyone but me especially after some fabric tape. Got several complements and overall felt great!

Very flattering, the collar was just the right amount of fun for a formal occasion. I suggest doing statement earrings to jazz it up.

Did the job for working a red carpet.

Needed something conservative, functional, and yet fashionable to work a red carpet, and this did the trick. The best part was I could actually wear a razed back bra under, underwear since it was loose at the waist, and could add a belt for my walk or talkie. Worst part was that it was too long, so I had to work 8 hours on my feet in heels and even then I was tripping over the hem. Get tall heels or hem tape. Many folks liked it and I did as well, but I wish the collar was even more dramatic.

Didn't wear this one but gorgeous !

Gorgeous neck detail, the dress itself was in perfect condition, flattering to the upper body. If your lower midsection isn't your strong suit, sit this one out. The fabric is not forgiving.

Black tie Christmas party

I loved this dress. I opted to pick up the dress at the new flatiron store which I hadn't been to yet. The new store is wonderful! Luckily I tried the dress on bc I actually needed the long instead of the regular. The girls working were very helpful in working with me to get the long and I could have it Uber rushed the same day for free. Hands down a win all around. The earrings that were added were the perfect touch to this dress. I honestly think I could have worn the 2L but was ok with the 4L. Totally would were this dress again.

Black tie NYE

My friend's wedding reception was supposed to be black tie (she changed that at the last minute) but being overdressed is never a bad thing! This dress is actually comfortable. I even wore a regular bra! Although I should have pinned the straps. The neck line in sophisticated and classic. Perfect for an updo. It has a high slit which makes walking easy and gives a bit of sexiness. I am short but with 4 inch heels it was the perfect length. So if you are average/tall and plan on wearing heels, you might want to get the long version, not the regular.

What a great dress

The fit was perfect, the material was heavy enough that it didn't wrinkle, it was a silent showstopper. Very sexy and understated. I normally wear a 8/10 and the 10 was a perfect fit. I was confident and received lots of compliments. The bust isn't very accommodating but it fit my 36DD easily.

Classic black dress

This was a classic black dress perfect for a D.C. Formal affair. I loved the ruffle around the sleeves and the slits dress. It was perfect. I felt it ran true to size. It was easy to dance in and fabric was comfortable. I would highly recommend.

Perfect for a work formal. Very classy with a touch of trendiness. Not super form-fitting at the waist, so better to rent this for professional settings and not so much for a date!

This dress was unique and gorgeous, perfect for the black tie fundraiser gala. Fabric breathed easy and allowed me to run around since I was the event planner for the event. So many compliments and I didn't have to worry about anyone else wearing the same dress!

Ok dress

I chose to wear my backup dress instead of this one. My main issue with this dress was that the chest area was too baggy for my smaller 32 C bra size. I think if you are slender with a larger chest, the dress would be a good fit for you. The rest of the dress fit nicely and the high slits on the sides add some sexiness. I wear either a 2 or 4 and the size 2 fit me.

Way too long even with very high heels!

I love the top of this dress but it was too snug in the hips and way too long even with super high heels. I'm pretty thin right now so if you have any hips or butt at all I'd suggest going up a size.

Stunner

Perfect balance of formal but not TOO formal for a black tie optional wedding. Most of the other girls were wearing cocktail dresses, but I didn't feel over dressed. The 8 fit great. More than enough room in the bust and comfortable across the hips. Loved being able to wear a regular bra!

Stunning dress!

This dress is gorgeous. I'm 5'5 and the length of the petite fit was perfect. The cut out in the front gives it a bit of sexiness. Not much give with fabric. I'd say dress runs true to size.

Stunning black tie moment

This gown fit perfectly! The long could have been 1-2 inches longer for my 5'9 frame with 3.5 in heels but in bare feet it touched the floor. I didn't love the slits on both sides but standing still you couldn't see them. There's ruching under the bust so if you've got a small chest that will be bunchy. I had to wear a padded bra to fill it out. Add your shapewear and you've got a night on the town! The ruffle sleeves and neck are a great detail and need minimal jewelry. Definitely a hair up look!

Shoshanna Black Ruffle Gown 8L

Loved wearing this dress. It's fun and the ruffles and skirt slits make it just a little interesting for more buttoned-up events. I'm 5'7" and 150#, small-to-average bust and a bit hippy (40" or so). I chose to wear it a little more fitted with the 8L, but never felt that I was straining the fabric. The next size up would have gapped on top. The length was perfect with 3" heels, so taller shoppers may need to consider lower heels or a different dress.

Elegant and classy long LBD!

Get petite if 5'4 or below! I'm 5'4 and with standard high heels, the 2p fit perfect. The 2R was way too long and I was glad I had ordered 2nd size. Lots of compliments on this one - keyhole and ruffles make it very flattering but elegant. Worn to work award dinner. Probably made for the less busty women, the keyhole could be too low and wide if larger than a C - just my thoughts. Great dress, hard to go wrong here!

I received so many compliments. Very sophisticated and sexy. Perfect for any time of year. Love it!

I typically wear a 4 or 6. I'm 5'1" with broad back and narrow hips. The 4R for perfectly. I wish I owned this dress. The fabric is very high quality, with an elegant neck and slits up both sides. The length was perfect with a 3" heel. You can't go wrong with this dress.

Black tie event. Wanted to sort of blend in, that's why I went with black but with the fun neckline it still stood out just enough! So many compliments!
