Stunning dress, but not for petite girls!
This dress is absolutely gorgeous in person! It does have some sparkle in the thread, but the fabric is very thick so it is still very classy. Unfortunately, I am 5'2" and this dress was way too long. Even with 5 inch heals, I could not wear it. The other issue for me was the halter strap was too long. The size 2 did fit perfect in the waist. My sister who is 5'7" and 135 lbs came over and tried on my back up size 4, and it fit her like a glove! It was beautiful on her. If I could buy this dress, I would buy the size 2 and have it altered!

Special!
Best RTR unlimited dress yet! Note the metallic makes it much more dressy than casual though. Be ready for that as it appears only stripes online. 6% metallic silvery sheen in real life. Kissed the ground with no shoes and I'm 5"10. I did have to tie it at the neck as it was too big when only buttoned as is the design. I have very long hair so it didn't show.

I did not have to worry about it falling down and it flattered me beautifully!
The dress fit snug in the chest area so I did not have to wear a bra with it. Everywhere else the dress was loose and I was able to dance in it. It was a little long, but with heels it wasn't a big deal at all.

Gorgeous dress!
I am SO sad this dress didn't fit. It was just not going to fit around my large bust. The fabric is thick and gorgeous. It definitely has a lot of shimmer to it. There is NO stretch to the fabric, so if you have a large bust, you'll want to size up for sure.

Perfect!
I love this dress. As others mentioned- the halter strap is a little long but you can just rig it to make it work. I'm 5'7" and the length was perfect with my Target wedges.

Gorgeous gown with fun stripes
This gown is absolutely stunning! The bust area is roomy and the a line fit is flattering and comfortable. I would say it is true to size. I loved wearing fun stripes, I definitely stood out in a sea of solid colors! I had planned to wear gold accessories but the dress is much more metallic than it appears on the website. The white has silver threading. Do not be mistaken, it is a gown and not a maxi! The long length kissed the floor (I'm 5'10" and wore flats) and the fabric was incredibly luxe. Yet another winner from RTR!

Fit well, a tad long with flats (perfect with heels), ended up tying the halter once before buttoning. Pockets are a great plus. Would definitely rent this again! LOVE!

Compliments all night
This dress is a stunner! People love a bold print, and a shimmery blue almost-chevron definitely fits the bill. I am pretty flat-chested but hippy enough, so I ordered a 6 and an 8. After a few minutes, I realized that though it fit okay, I probably should have ordered a 4 as my backup. The top was fairly baggy, & I had a lot of room where it clasped low in the back. So I didn't have a perfect fit, but the dress was really comfortable — the fabric is pretty heavy, so when we hit the dance floor, I got sweaty very fast. The regular is pretty long ( I wore 3-inch wedges that you simply could never see) on me at 5'6, but it was a glamorous floor-sweeping length for a very formal affair!

This is a show stopper at a black tie event - elegant, but fun, and very comfortable!
Fit was perfect - very substantial fabric that has a shine to it that is difficult to see in the photos. Love the pockets and the ease! Fabulous fabric and design!

So many compliments!
This dress was beautiful! I received so many compliments all night! Even though I'm 5' 4", I generally order dress with long sizing. I ordered a regular and it ended up being a little long, but with high heels it was perfect. It runs pretty true to size. I definitely recommend this dress!

Beautiful fit and style!
This dress is so pretty! I loved how the top fit and how the skirt lays. It's heavier than expected and I think would be too warm for my July wedding in DC. The silvery thread is beautiful throughout too! For me, the pockets did not lay very flat on my hips either which I didn't love.

Nicely made, too heavy for extreme heat
This dress is awesome. However it is made of very heavy material. I'd imagine that if anyone wore this in over 75 degree weather that they'd burn up. May be best for cooler summer temps or summer evening events.

Perfect as a last-minute bridesmaid ...bride requested navy/white dress of our choice...
Loved the halter top, found it very flattering in photos. This was for a FL Keys late July wedding @430pm ceremony. As mentioned, I was asked to be a last-minute bm. I had also ordered a short dress for likely wardrobe change due to the heat (based on previous cuts reviews), I received MANY compliments on both dresses, esp this Shoshanna gown. The long skirt was A little warm but halter allowed it to be tolerable. Great quality, did not notice any flaws etc like some had said and based On my previous RTR experience.

Smart dress but a little short.
I am 5'7 and usually struggle with dress length. I got a 6R and the top was a little loose and the length was a little short so I skipped wearing the dress. If I had gotten a 4R it would have fit perfectly on the top but the length would've been too short to even wear flats.

Head Turner!
This dress has much more of a shimmer than I had realized. The neckline is incredibly flattering. I was worried about how wide it would make me look, but it was wonderful. There are also pockets! It was very comfortable but the top does have a slight bit of boning. I paired w a small Kate Spade ear cuff. Be ready for compliments!

I rented this for a black tie wedding at a resort. It traveled well because the material doesn't wrinkle. I'm 5'2" and it was long but with heels it was perfect. I got tons of compliments!

Tons of compliments!
Wore this dress to the Grammys and got compliments all day long and from everyone who saw the pictures after! Pockets were a great touch and the dress was comfy for a 12-hour day. Strapless bra did not really work because it went a little too low in the back - used a stick on cup bra instead and that was perfect. I'm 5'4" and even with 3" heels it was a little long - just a little fashion tape on the bottom and was good to go. Would recommend this dress for sure!

I wore this dress to the red carpet premiere of my high school film. I felt like Blake Lively! It was elegant but still understated. I would recommend this dress to anyone. It was a little heavy but it's so classically beautiful. Amazing! Side note: I'm 5'6 and needed to wear 3" heels!

Fun dress for bridal shower!
I ordered a 8L but I'm pretty sure a 8 regular was delivered, so I had to wear flats with my dress, when I would have preferred to wear wedges. Other than that, the dress looked great and I received many compliments on it. It was a super fun dress to wear to my bridal shower at a winery. I would definitely rent again.

You guys, this dress has POCKETS!!
Wore this to a black-tie-optional ball and LOVED it! The nautical stripes are so unique and the dress has just the perfect bit of shimmer to it, which you can't really see in the photo. I'm 5'4", so I had to wear my tallest heels and it was still just a wee smidge long, but not a problem at all. Plus, POCKETS!! Big enough to hold a lipstick and a little money, or just find a place for your hands when you find yourself standing around for a minute. My only complaint is that the waist (where the two directions of stripes meet) is tight. I was ready to take it off by the end of the night. Also, the fabric is heavy, so you get hot while dancing or in a crowded room, but not too bad. Overall, I felt like a million bucks, no one else had a dress like it and I got several compliments!

Elegant nautical theme
Fit perfectly, a little loose in the bust but I didn't wear a bra. Floor length and elegant and shimmery. The neck ties were a little long but you can just pin them together or tie a knot. I paired with a brown leather belt to make it a little less formal. Perfect for a formal boat cruise.

Didn't wear
This dress just fit to strangely. I rented this as a backup and if just was an awkward fit. And I feel that the 4 would have even too loose so I don't think it was the size. It was a lot of side boob and was oddly sexy for a long dress. The fabric is very heavy and the length was very awkward just a bit too long for flats (I am 5'2) and with any kind of heel it was almost high watered. I just retuned it right away wasn't a fan. Also the pockets lay funny as noted by most other reviews.

Comfortable and Flattering!
I loved this gown! It's quite sparkly, which I didn't expect, but it was still really pretty. The neck strap was a little loose, but I didn't mind. I didn't end up wearing a bra with it, and it worked out well. It was just long enough for me to wear short wedges. If I had worn higher heels it would have been too short. Overall, it was a super fun dress for a formal Southern wedding!

Pretty...but the pockets stick out!!
This dress was really beautiful in person. It is definitely more silver/navy rather than white and navy as it looked in the picture. It also has a like sparkle/sheen to it that I wasn't expecting- but was nice!! The reason it's 3 stars are the pockets. Was SO excited for them but unfortunately the pockets completely stick out. It's BAD. Nothing could get them to lay flat. It was not my hips, it was the dress. The top was also a bit narrow for my liking and I felt like I had armpit fat all night. I got a ton of compliments but it wasn't my favorite.

Instant Classic
LOVED THIS! Felt amazing-danced all night. I can't say anything bad about this dress. It has a built in bra (amazing!) other reviews have issues with the pockets but these hadn't been opened yet and I think it's better that way so you don't have that flare in the hips. I wore a size 10 and could have done the 8 but it was a little tight in the back. Great dress!!

Rhode Island wedding perfection
This dress! Gorgeous when I found it online and beyond gorgeous when I took it out of the rent the runway bag. The fit was great, perfect length for a small heel, but I am tall already so I didn't want to wear a giant heel. The pockets stick out a lot if you have hips. I ended up wearing spanx to keep the pockets from puckering too much. The sparkle is 100% more in person. You can hardly see it in any photos, but trust me it's SPARKLY! I received so many compliments throughout the night and I was so happy with my choice. Great dress!

Gorgeous, fun, and who doesn't love POCKETS?!
I absolutely loved this dress, and got so many compliments throughout the night! I rented this for a formal summer wedding, and the style was perfect. It was conservative enough for the traditional church ceremony (long, full coverage on top, not too low in the back) but fun and spunky for the reception (the slight glitter/shimmer of the fabric). Perks: I didn't have to wear a bra! There is boning in the bodice and a bra-style clip to keep the top secured in place. The fabric of the dress kept its shape, but wasn't heavy or too stiff to move comfortably. Cautions: I ordered the 8L based on previous reviews that the dress ran short, and I am so glad I did! I wore 2-3" heels and it ended up being the perfect length. The pockets don't lay perfectly flat. This didn't bother me much but might bother someone else.

Loved this dress! It was perfect for a July 4th black tie wedding on the beach!
The fit is perfect. The dress is very long though. The higher the heel the better! The fabric has an overall metallic sheen which makes the white a more silver like color. Highly recommend this dress!

Perfect standout for summer black tie wedding
I loved this dress. After seeing someone else in it at a wedding in June, I decided to go for it since my fiancée would be wearing a navy tux. It was perfect! I am 5'4" and short waisted, the only tweak I made was pulling the bodice up and fastening the halter strap with safety pins instead of the button closure- it worked great and that way the waist line rested on my actual waist and the skirt flowed better over my hips and the length was perfect. The fabric was great, it holds you in but isn't too heavy/sweaty. I will definitely consider renting this dress again!

Stunning
This was a backup dress, after my first backup didn't work out. (Shoutout as always to RTR customer service!!) I am so glad I ended up with this dress. I've rented quite a few dresses, and this was my absolute favorite of all time. The material is shimmery, which isn't obvious in a lot of pictures. It's a truly beautiful dress. The material was a heavier weight, so this dress might be better for a fall/winter wedding. But it was unseasonably cool for a Friday in August, so it worked out great for me. I rented the 10L and the 12R. (Because that's what was available at the last minute.) I didn't notice much of a difference in the lengths, but the 10 wouldn't zip over my chest, so I went with the 12. The strap around the neck was a little long, so I just safety pinned it to a better length. I didn't have to wear a bra, because he boning that was built in gave me more than enough support.

Really looked fabulous at our beachside Gala.
Overall this dress was great and I got a ton of compliments on it. I would say the chest runs large and the neck strap was too long, so I fixed that by tying it in a knot before buttoning it. I wore the 10L because it was longer than the 8L, but could've worn the 8. I have on flats, but could've worn heels without the length looking strange. It's slightly longer in the back. The material is heavyweight like a drapery, so I would not rent this for an event where you might be hot. Perfect for Southern California weather though!

The dress fit me so perfect I loved it so much! Form fitting and danceable
Only thing negative was that the strap on the neck was a tad to big and I wish I knew about the pockets bc at first I didn't like them bc it make me look wider but once I wore it for the wedding I loved it
