Stylist Review
I felt like I was going to a nautical Summer gala in this gown! Running true to size, we recommend going one size up for back up. This gown is great for any cup size since there is comfortable room in the bust area. With the halter neckline, this style should be worn with either a NuBra or no bra. With no stretch in the fabric, the gown is fitted in the waist and throughout the midsection. The fuller skirt allows comfortable room for full hips. At 5'7", the gown was just above floor length on me. My favorite details of this style are the side pockets and subtle sparkle! This gown is perfect to wear to any Summertime formal affair. Pair with simple sandals or wedges, and delicate gold accessories.

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.

A great dress for a Summer party...
This was my backup and I didn't end up wearing it - it was a bit to small. The halter is cut perfectly and holds the "girls" in without showing anything on the side. I have a larger chest and didn't feel the need to wear a bra. It's cut narrow in the waist so if you have hips I would size up. I have hips and the pockets stuck out on the dress and pulled at the seams (sizing up probably would have fixed that). NOTE: This dress is sparkly! There is prominent metallic threading in the white striped of the gown. Also, it's a heavier material. Overall, it's such a unique dress and I hope to have a chance to rent it again in the future.

Dress is beautiful and original, BUT LONG
This dress fit perfectly, but it is meant for a very tall person. I loved the dress and it fit me well, but Ihad to run out and by 4 inch heels for it. I also had to pin the halter top around my neck because that was too long as well. However, I wore my hair down so that was no big deal. The entire dress, I think, is sized for a longer person -- at 5'3, I don't usually wear petites, but that probably would have been helpful here. It is also worth mentioning that there is silver thread running through the "white" stripes. I'd originally planned to wear gold shoes and accessories, but after receiving the dress and seeing it in person, I went with silver shoes (the 4" purchase) and a silver bag. I received many compliments on the dress and it was a hit. Shoshanna is always a winner and she does well for women (like me) with a bit drunk in the trunk.

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!

Who says horizontal stripes aren't flattering?
This dress was originally not even on my radar. I got an email from RTR two days before the event, saying my backup style had been damaged/delayed in the return so I had to pick another dress. This dress was the LAST dress on the list of alternatives I picked. I had my heart set on the other dress that I had ordered. I was so wrong...It. Was. PERFECT. It fit me like a glove. I am usually a loose 8 in street clothes, and this 8 was a teeny bit snug but with the boning in the top, you want it to be on the tighter side. I am a 34C and went braless without any issues AND there are pockets!! I'm 5'8" and wore the 8L and I found that with 3 inch heels it was still a little short. But it was a backyard wedding so it was good to avoid grass stains. I got so many compliments in it, and I really felt beautiful. I would rent this again in a heartbeat!!

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!

Nautical themed perfection!
This dress was ideal for our "nautical themed" affair. The top was snug enough to comfortably wear without a bra and the extra length is ideal for those with extra height. And who doesn't love a dress with pockets? The material is more shimmery than the photo, which added a touch of elegance and formality.

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!

The dress was fantastic and the compliments were endless (even had people texting me the next day)
I ordered an 8L (no other options were available for alternate sizes). I was worried about the length (I'm 5'9") but I could almost wear flats with it. I wore 2 inch heals. Loved the pockets and the shimmer that is hard to translate in a picture. It was a little snug. I am typically an 8 but busty (36D) made it tight. The dress was a little worn, pockets pulled a bit and there were some pulls but nothing bothersome. Definitely would recommend but would probably have gone with a 10L

This dress is magical! IT HAS POCKETS!
I got so many compliments on this dress - from everyone! It fit like a glove and was so comfortable. I'd rent it again and again and again. It's a little long - I was wearing flats, but would recommend wearing heels if you're short. It's nicely structured and easy to dance in (if you're one to hit the dance floor). Highly recommend!

The PERFECT Prom dress!
The dress was a little long, but was perfect with heals. I am 5'5" and the heals were 2 1/2-3" or so. The pockets were fantastic, especially at prom where I was moving around and didn't want to worry about a bag. The dress is sparkly, which you can't quite see from the picture, but was perfect for a prom. Overall, I loved this dress!

Perfect for pear shaped body. I wore flats and the length was just right. Only complaint is that the pockets didn't lay flat (may have been stretched after many wears with people putting their hands in them).

Classy dress
I got one in long and one in regular, there was barely a difference. I wore the long, but still had to get flats, I'm 5'10". The dress is thick and was warm for a summer wedding, but it was very comfortable and draped nicely. I got lots of compliments on it all night. It has metallic threads that do not show up much in the picture, but I thought it was quite sparkly in person.

I received compliments all night from everyone!
The dress is absolutely beautiful. There is something about the fabric that makes it a perfect dress for a casual or formal wedding. And you can really see it in the pictures, but the fabric is sparkly as well which gives it a little something extra. It fit perfectly except the top part was a little big, especially the halter. Other than that, I loved this dress and would definitely rent it again!

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!

This dress was fabulous! I wore it for a party, and everyone raved about it!
I decided to start wearing gowns, well, just because I can! So I rented this for a party we were hosting and it fit and flattered so well! A note, the dress does have a subtle sparkle to it which the picture does not show. It ended up being a bonus and was nicely subtle in the evening light.

Loved the dress... Classic with sparkle!
I rented for 4th of July dinner out and everyday. It's a little too fancy for everyday but appropriate for upscale lunch/dinner or event wear. It does run long and is a bit heavy and hot but worth it. People stopped me in the streets to ask about the dress.

It Has Pockets
Pros: POCKETS! The length worked well with my height (5'8") and allowed me to still wear flats. Cons: "The girls" are a 34B and wearing my true to size dress, I was not able to wear a bra. For a summer wedding, it wore "heavy".

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.

Absolutely loved the dress. It was my first time using RTR so I was a bit unsure how it would work out, but I am SO happy I did. The dress was stunning and I received compliments all night from other guests. It was elegant, with a hint of flare, which is exactly what I was looking for. Fit perfectly (I am 5'7"), and was very comfortable. Even had pockets for lipstick and phone.

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!

Great dress that can work for a semiformal to casual occasion!
This dress is shimmery in person and the lighter color is more almond than crisp white. The material is heavier than I expected - would be great for spring or fall events. The pockets did not lie perfectly flat, but placing a phone or compact and lipstick in each pocket does help with that. It is very flattering and I got a number of compliments! Wish I could keep it.

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!
