Absolutely loved it!

The dress fits like a glove. This was my 2nd dress pick, not my first, but I ended up wearing it because it fit so well and looked amazing. I was worried because I am pear shaped (extremely) and I ordered a size down because it was the only size available. But it worked wonderfully. Very comfortable, very flattering on my figure. Would definitely rent this dress/brand again.

Classic and comfortable!

I’m 5’3” and the 2P fit like a glove. Its very comfortable and the ruffle detail around neck and arms is beautiful. If you’re looking for an understated, classic style, this is the dress!

this is a great dress - timeless!

The dress fits great and has classic lines. The ruffles on the sleeves and neckline add a fun twist. The high neckline is very flattering!

Great dress!

Overall great dress: comfortable, hugged my curves perfectly, and the material moved well. I ordered the 6L and 8L and opted for the 8L only because it gave me a smidge more length. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was that, even though I ordered the long, I was still only able to wear flat, formal sandals with the dress; had it been about an inch longer, I could have gotten away with heels.

I got so many compliments and I definitely stood out at the formal wedding in NYC.

Great fit true to size. Stretchy material. Neck took a bit to get used to (when sitting down it pulled a bit, but not a big deal once I got used to pulling the dress forward a bit when sitting down).

Nice quality but runs small. Picture looks like it flows but it is more snug. I would go a size up.

Had to send the dress back.

I'm 5'3" but I have super long legs for that height. The slit on the side didn't come up high enough for me to be able to walk like a normal person. I had to send it back. It was a shame because, standing still, I looked so good, and it hit all my curves in the best places. If you're more "normally" proportioned, I would highly recommend this dress.

FELT LIKE A MILLION BUCKS

This dress was literally amazing.. doesn't help that I had my eye on it for months. It was tight on my legs and torso but very loose under my boobs.. wasn't noticeable so I just went with it. There is a slit on both sides which I feel like they don't tell you but overall I recommend it to anyone and everyone! Hugs the curves in all the right places

I felt prettier in this than I did on my own wedding day! Seriously!!

I was first off shocked that the dress ran true to size. I'm a size 6, but to have a size six dress fit this perfect was such a great thing. I wore this to my son's school's annual auction and gala. It was a 70's glam theme, and I'm pretty boho on a daily basis- so going in a long black keyhole- just to show enough sexiness, with the side slits. I went Sharon Stone "Casino" style. I wish I'd taken a photo alone or even with my husband but this is one of the few that we're taken during the night. I'm 5'4"'with 4" peep toe Manolo's on. My friend beside me played college basketball and is in 4" heels. So to give you a size reference. Everyone that saw me was taking double takes and I loved it! It was a gorgeous true to size absolutely perfect dress, not just for my occasion but any semi formal to cocktail event. I adore this dress. Wish i had it!

I loved this dress! Perfect, comfortable but elegant and polished.

I have a butt and thighs and this dress really highlights the bust and arms and drapes nicely over curves. I liked the neckline, long and elegant but still a peak of cleavage that was tasteful. I'm 5'7" and the 10 regular was fine with my low heel. Very comfortable without sacrificing the fab!

Sleek and sexy dress!

I got tons of compliments on this dress! I have broad shoulders, so the halter top really made my shoulders look sleek and sexy! The rouging is also cute and playful- I was getting hit on by lots of guys at this wedding- I don't know if it was the dress or the party, but I definitely felt great in it!

Process of renting and returning was so easy.

I'm 5'3 and pretty busty - usually i have trouble finding a dress that compliments my frame - its either too tight on top and perfect on the bottom or too loose on the bottom and perfect on top. This dress was perfect! I got lots of compliments and it was comfortable. I danced all night. Shoshana may have just become one of my favorite designers.

Didn't wear - bust seams were odd

It's possible that this could fit another person well, but I found the bust seams to be very strange - totally off with my natural chest. It made the dress look awkward!

Classic, never basic!

This was my backup style dress, so i was surprised. The fit was perfect, not too tight and not too loose. I was worried with it being straight and long, that it would cling in all the wrong places. I was wrong! The fabric is so flattering. It may look like a basic black dress online, but it is so elegant in person. I kept getting "best dressed" conpliments all night!

Order a size down

Beautiful gown, the material is a bit on the thin side. Order a size down as this runs pretty large. I'm normally a 4/6 and I wish I would have ordered a 2.

Being asked if I'd lost weight

I wore this to an awards show and got so many compliments on how classy I looked. It was a perfect fit in both the waist and the length with standard 3" heels. I didn't even have to wear spanks.

Had a masquerade ball and wanted to look sexy & mysterious. And how often do you get to wear a gown?

The previous reviews were helpful in choosing a size. I am usually a size 6 dress but it can vary with cut. The 6R fit well. A wee-bit snug in the waist (my fault, holidays) but Spanx did the trick. I bought a great push-up bra to take my B to a C and the cleavage was awesome. And I was lucky to find the perfect ruffly heels to go-with! I felt sexy and amazing (and comfortable!) all night! Loved this dress!

Stunning and so comfortable!!!!

I figured the size 6 would fit perfectly but ordered a size 8 as a back up. I probably should have ordered the size 4 as my back up. The dress is beautiful, was so comfortable, fit perfectly in the bust area, but was too big from the bust down. Would definitely recommend this dress though, I got tons of compliments.

Sexy & classy!

This was my first RTR rental. I was very impressed. I'm 8 weeks postpartum & was worried about finding something that was flattering since my body has changed. You can wear a normal bra & the dress is very comfortable. I would rent this again.

Perfectly hugs every curve

This dress was absolutely beautiful. Classy with just the right amount of sexy. There's a slit on each side that goes up to about mid thigh, so no need to worry about being overly revealing. I didn't wear a bra with this dress and everything stayed in place; I'm a 32F. The material is thick, so definitely perfect for a winter event. If worn in the summer, you'll probably sweat like crazy.

Vert flattering

I wore this to a formal new years eve event. It was perfect for a fun party. Very flattering but was a little more fitted from waist down than i had expected. I felt i needed some spanx shorts to smooth out. It is great dress for flattering curvy figures. Im glad my back up size was petite length, im 5'4 but regular was very long and i only had 2 inch heels

Great dress as always!

I'm 5'7, 34d and 120 pounds. Length of dress was perfect. Bust was a little snug and hips were a little loose. If it were my dress I️ would have had it altered a bit. Overall I️ am thrilled as usual with my RTR choice. Sexy but understated. Perfect for a company holiday party.

Elegant, classic, head-turning dress!

This dress was BEAUTIFUL. Super comfortable and had just enough stretch. It worked for a bigger bust, hourglass shape. No issue with the slit in the front at all. LOTS of compliments on the neckline and slits on the sides. Highly recommend!

Love this dress!

I rented this dress for a black tie event and received compliments all evening. My husband asked me to buy it he loved it so much. I would have worn the 0 but RTR did not have it in the petite length, so I wore the 2P. Will rent this dress again!

Great dress! Very comfortable fit! Ruffles are darling.

Slit in the front is thin but low. Slits on the side are cute. Did have to wear a racer back bra with it. But very comfy!
