Gorgeous dress!!

This was a beautiful dress and runs true to size. I did not wear it because It's a bit more dressy than I wanted to be for this particular event. However I soooo want to rent this again when I have an occasion for a dress like this!

Perfect Dress for a friends wedding! Compliments all night!

I was looking for the perfect dress for a semi-formal wedding! The requirements for me were: Must match with dates get-up and must have sleeves. I loved this dress when I saw it but became more nervous when I saw no reviews with pics... so here we go :) Upon getting the dress my 2 biggest concerns were my chest and shoulders. The shoulders were absolutly no problem at all. The chest was a little more snug but I was expecting it. To me it felt tight but not at all too tight. My mom and date couldn't tell it was tight at all and there was no other material pulling to indicate it didn't fit. The waist has no "stretch" to it at all but I had plenty of room and no issues with this. The zipper was a little hard to get up and down and made my date nervous but it was not a fit issue, just the tight zipper- my best suggestion is to just get a feel for it and then go fast. :) Great dress! Highly recommended!

unique and pretty, victorian feel. lovely details!

this dress was a backup when the size i ordered was no longer available. it's a very pretty dress--not something i would normally have picked out for myself, but i got two lovely compliments! the detailing on the sleeves, hemline and throughout the embroidery make it a very special piece. all-in-all, not really my style, but glad i tried it!

Beautiful details!

The dress is great for any cup size! It is fitted so I recommend going up a size for your backup. The dress is fitted at the natural waist but is loose at the hips. There is no stretch in the fabric and I definitely recommend wearing a strapless bra. Also would be great for any kind of body type.

Floral embroidery is both bright & subtle; great dress for dancing; received many compliments.

Fits well in shoulders. Arm length was just above wrist on me, which was fine. (vs. three-quarter length on long-armed model in Rent the Runway photo). Waist sits truly at the waist without binding. Slightly shorter length in front looks elegant and the dress fabric is light, so it sways beautifully when you waltz. Great rental price, too!

Compliments GALORE

This dress is showstopping. The mesh and the embroidery are absolutely gorgeous. This dress is so unique and you will definitely stand out at whatever event you're attending. Highly recommend. It is a gown, but it was very easy to dress down for a barn wedding. As a 36D, the only negative thing about this dress was that is was a little tight in the chest, but otherwise, what an awesome dress. Couldn't have better things to say about it.

Comfortable & Confident

Loved wearing this dress! I wore it 2 months postpartum to hide my arms and belly which are still a little out of shape from my pregnancy. I felt very comfortable and confident in the dress, and received a lot of compliments. The only thing is that the red color is the model photographs is more wine to burgundy in person. I actually preferred the deeper color of the flowers than the bright red pictured.

Conservative and sexy

I rented this dress for a wedding in which I wanted to dress more conservative but still look fun! This dress did thee trick it wasn't reveling but it also wasn't matronly. I received so many compliments on the dress and how I looked! I love the embroidery and that it was more then just a typical lbd.

Pretty, but not for me

I received this as an alternate because my original dress didn't have its back-up size available. The dress is very lovely, but at 5'3", it felt like too much fabric for my body.

The dress was fashionable and trendy so I felt confident and beautiful in the dress.

The fit was perfect! The fabric around the bodice was not thin so I felt supported, held in, and because of that, I didn't need to wear a bra. My only complaint was the zipper. It did not zip smoothly so I struggled to get the dress on and off. However, it was a 5-star dress all around.

Wore this to a Gala and the dress was elegant, pretty, and comfortable!

Ordered a 8L. It fit perfectly except it was a little long with my low heels. Just tacked up the back and it was fine. Got lots of compliments. This was my first time using RTR but have already ordered another dress for another upcoming Gala.

I wore this for a Dia de los Muertos dinner party and got many compliments on the dress!

I had a very short time to get ready before the party so I threw on the size 4 (though I had the backup of a size 2) and because they arms were tight, I just went with the 4 without trying the 2 on! I didn't have time to change dresses. It looked quite boxy in the waist because the waist line was over my rib-cage and was as wide as my ribs. Because of this, I belted the dress quickly and ran out the door. When I got home, I put the 2 on just for fun--- what a difference. The dress really shone when it was fitted tightly. I wish I had taken the time to change into the 2 before leaving.. it would've been worth the extra few minutes. That all being said, I realize now that for this type of a dress I am more of a size 2 anyhow, so I believe the dress to fit true to size. In the size 2 the arms weren't any more tight than in the 4, so I recommend wearing this dress as fitted as you can -- it looks best that way.

It runs true to size and is very "pretty", but just not enough wow factor. I ended up wearing my backup dress because of it.

I got some major Sarah Sanderson (Hocus Pocus) vibes and I was OBSESSED.

This dress fit beautifully and was so comfortable! I ended up wearing the smaller size that I ordered and was so glad I did, because the 12 was a couple inches too big in the waist for me. I was a little worried that the embroidery on the neck and arms would get itchy but I didn't even notice anything the whole night! I also loved that I really didn't need any jewelry with the dress, as it totally spoke for itself. I definitely got some witchy vibes that I was 100% okay with, so I went with a maroon pointy toe pump for the shoe, but it would have looked just as great with something black and strappy or nude. I would recommend a good strapless bra with this dress, although if you're wearing a black strapped bra it would just look like it was part of the lining. I think this dress would look great on women with many different body types; it was very forgiving on my tummy (my trouble area) and had a really great shape to it in general. Overall, I wanted to wear this dress all weekend because I loved it so much, it was heartbreaking to have to return it!

Stylist Review

Cute and elegant! This is an all around amazing dress. The perfect mix of mesh and embroidery truly makes this dress one of a kind. The high-low design also makes it a statement piece as you can tell it was intricately designed for a formal event. It runs true to size, fitted at the waist, and there is a lot of room in the hips. It is perfect for any bust size, and the fabric doesn’t stretch. If need be, I’d recommend going a size up, but this dress fit me like a glove!

Fun and feminine

I️ was very happy in the dress, I'm insecure about my arms and while I️ liked the sleeves in hindsight I️ may have gone with something not sheer but the dress was extremely comfortable and I️ got lots of compliments. Fit was good, only thing was 10L fit better everywhere but was a little short (I'm 5'9.5" and wearing approx 1.5 inch heels) but the 12 fit well enough and was comfortable for enjoying the wedding food :)

Wedding guest: not flashy but still beautiful!

This dress is beautiful: the embroidery was gorgeous. I wore the 12L: top was very snug in the front, snug sleeves, loose everywhere else, hem hit about ankle high. I didn't seem to have much of a waist in it, so coupled with my 36DDs, I went straight from shoulders to hem. I'm 5'8", 165lbs, 36DD, can I say "athletic hourglass?" It was still beautiful, I got so many compliments. If I was to rent again, I'd go up a size and maybe try a belt to cinch in and give me a waist.

The wedding was beautiful and having a gown as such made it better

I’m 5’4 125 pounds bigger at the waist and smaller at the busy. I thought the dress was going to be to long but once I put it in with my heels it was fine. Still dragged a bit but was fine. The busy was a bit loose but all in all it was perfect. It was such a beautiful dress!

The dress was beautiful in pictures and in person. I felt gorgeous!

The fit was perfect. I usually wear a size 10, because I am in my first trimester I had to order a size 12. It fit beautifully. I received compliments all evening. Make sure to wear at least 3" heels so you are not stepping on the dress. I would definitely rent this dress again it was so elegant and comfortable to wear. I danced all night and was not hot. The material is light and not itchy like some opaque materials can be. This was a last minute choice because the original dress I rented did not fit. Customer service was so very helpful and kind and helped me choose this dress. It arrived on time and I couldn't have been happier.

Fits really nicely - maybe a little tighter in the arms than normal. Tons of compliments all night and the high-low front makes this cocktail or formal attire!

Gorgrous & Comfortable!

I am a 5’5”, 135lbs athletic body with a huge rib cage coming in at a 39B. I wore the 6R with no bra necessary (huzzah!) and 2 inch heels. The zipper was tricky even to get off the hanger, so you’ll need a loving friend to help zip you up!

Gorgeous & comfortable dress

I'm 5'4", 130 pounds & wore a size 2 (my usual size). I did not have problems with the arms. Even with 3" heels the back of the dress skimmed the floor. This was so comfortable! I was feeling bloated due to my period & this dress didn't show it/ squeeze me. I kept on receiving compliments all night long. Honestly, one of my favorite dresses :) It's bold, yet appropriate for a work holiday party.

Beautiful dress, but should have sized down

I didn't end up wearing this, but should have sized down. I have an hourglass shape, 5'8", approx 180 lb. My weight has fluctuated a LOT in the past two years. Right now I'm between a 10 and 12, but I usually go for a 12 in tops and dresses to fit my bust (DD/DDD). I ordered the 12 in this dress, but it was too big in the waist. There was plenty of room in the bust (in fact, maybe a little too much -- a problem I NEVER have). The 10 would have been a better fit for me. The dress is beautiful and the silhouette would have worked really well for my body type, so I hope to rent this in a 10 for another occasion!

So pretty and fit perfectly!

This dress is so unique and beautiful. The high/low is fun and the length was perfect for me (5'5" with 4 inch heels). It's super comfortable, flowy and forgiving. I needed help zipping it up as the zipper is small and fabric is pretty thick.

Maternity?

This dress is absolutely stunning! It came up as an option for maternity which I was so excited about! However, even though I sized up, the dress was particulary tight around my tummy. I was happy that it even fit to begin with! Overall, loved the print and style of this dress, but I would be cautious if you are pregant. It did fit, but was uncomfortably tight around the mid section.

Received so many compliments!

This dress was so unlike anything I would usually wear, but I loved it! I rented an 8 and a 6 (I wore an 8 in another Shoshana dress last year) and i ended up wearing the 6. They were both a bit too long on me, but the 6 was not as long and fit better all over. There is no stretch to the material. I did end up using fashion tape to make the dress a bit shorter. At the bottom there are two layers, so I folded the inner, black satin layer under and secured it with fashion tape. Since the outer layer is more of a mesh material, I didnt want to do anything to it, but it almost didnt seem as long since the inner layer was shorter. For reference, I am 5'2.5", and was wearing (I think) 3.5" heels. Now that I know how easy it is to "hem" a dress with fashion tape, I won't shy away from long dresses. Overall I loved this dress!

Fit perfectly. Loved the length of the sleeve and dress. It was absolutely gorgeous. I was complimented at one point and told it looked very Anthropologie. If you're into that, then I highly recommend this dress! And it was pretty comfy! Win/win

I wish I had a photo with this on!!

I was a little worried at first with this piece since with my hair up, it looked a little matronly. But there was something about it that I really loved. With my hair loosely curled and worn half up, it gave a boho-chic vibe and I absolutely loved the look. Per usual with any of my RTR rentals, I got plenty of compliments! Will probably buy this piece if it ever goes on sale.

Showstopper!!

I had to pick a new dress last minute since the one I ordered was no longer available. With RTR providing an unlimited budget for the replacement (and not having much time to pick), I rolled the dice on this more bold dress for an Oct. wedding. This dress was AMAZING! Fit true to size / maybe a little large in sleeves. I wore it without a bra, too which might have help filled it in. Heavy, quality fabric. Beautiful embroidery. SO MANY COMPLIMENTS! My BF and I went for a very moody theme which worked quite well with a dark lip. Very sad to return!!

Perfect dress for Shen Yun with its Asian floral design. Received lots of compliments & stayed warm.

I was seeking a dress with an Asian flare for the Shen Yun opening at Lincoln Center. I am 5'4'' and wore 2 inch heels, but the dress still ran too long (draped the floor), so I belted it when walking outside. I wore a light wrap to cover my almost bare shoulders to stay warm. I am busty and wear between a 6 and an 8, so ordered an 8 and 10 to be on the safe side. I wish I had ordered the 6, because it fit slightly loose in the arms and waist. Overall it was pretty, covered in embroidered flowers and more vibrant in person. The zipper was stiff and would have been impossible to zip by oneself. My husband found it very challenging, definitely plan to have someone help you zip it up!

Understated elegance.

The details on this Shoshana were very special, from the embroidery and the high/low lace ruffle, to the detail on the sleeves. It was very comfortable and age appropriate for this 60 something at a winter gala event that I didn't feel comfortable showing my arms and chest area. It was the perfect gown for an event where I wanted to feel pretty, but not the center of attention. Shoshana never dissapoints.
