It was a Sunday afternoon summer wedding.
The dress is beautiful. I loved the high-low hem and the top was very comfortable and well fitted. I was not pulling it up all day long, like some strapless styles. It stayed put. Actually, the dress was so nice that I had to dress it down with a boring belt.

Simply gorgeous
Loved this dress! It was so pretty for the spring wedding I was at! Compliments and everything. The 8 fit a bit better but caused that "pooching" at my arm pit area so I went with the 10 (yay for backup!) otherwise I loved it! Definitely recommend!!

Pretty dress!
This dress was understated and classy - really beautiful fit and flow. The top was snug enough that I didn't need to wear a bra, and didn't have too many problems with it slipping down during the evening. I rented a crystal necklace to wear with it but ended up wearing one of my own smaller necklaces because it wasn't a very fancy wedding and the necklace was a bit over-the-top. All in all, enjoyed the dress and would recommend!

Great dress
This dress fit so well and was perfect for an August wedding. Didn't feel it falling down, which tends to happen with strapless dresses for me. Recommended.

I am busty so I had to go 2 sizes to the 8, but it worked well!! The length was still perfect!!

Perfect for a formal event
The zipper was a little hard to get over the seam so I had to zip it in the front and twist it around but other than that no complaints at all! Such a great fit, didn't have to wear a bra, and had no issues with the dress staying up all night. Super flattering and more on the conservative side. Perfect for a formal wedding- would definitely recommend this dress to a friend.

Blue stunner
This dress was absolutely beautiful. The shape was stunning, the material was comfortable, and the style was perfect. I wore this for my cousin's wedding and felt truly elegant. I got compliments all night and it was so fun to dance in! The length was perfect on my petite frame and the material was smooth and comfy a long day. Highly recommend!

Dark navy blue color, exactly what I expected
This is a great navy dress. The elastic at the top kept me from having to pull up all night. The length Was perfect in the back (for flats or heels) and the front came just below the knee. Runs true to size.

It was a great night of reunions with old friends.
This dress is super flattering, got tons of compliments all night! It stayed up surprisingly well even though it's strapless and the material was definitely thick enough I didn't have to wear a bra but you could if you felt more comfortable with one. I'm relatively short so it was kind of longer than I would have wanted, but with a pair of nude heels it worked well.

Classic dress
I chose two dresses before landing on this one. I was super excited about the first two, but they were too small. I wasn't in love with with this dress, but went for it since I was out of time. Since the first to dresses were 0's and I couldn't zip them, I went with a 2 on this one. It was pretty on the hangar, but trust me ladies, when you put it on, it's gorgeous!!! The wedding was black tie optional and this dress was the perfect choice. It fit percent and hides all flaws. I am 5'2 and I loved where the dress hit. There was no need to wear a bra and I had no issues with the dress staying up. Don't hesitate...rent this dress!!!! It will not disappoint.

Gorgeous, but a little large
I wore this to a wedding at the Masonic Temple in Pasadena. It ran a bit large for me. I wore a Nu Bra and a strapless bra under it. I didn't have to hitch it up, but it was a bit wide in the chest for me. I loved the way it looked with my silver Badgley Mischka heels and Dannijo crystal jacket earrings.

Texas "Winter" Wedding
The fit was perfect and very true to size. The shape is very flattering and it was really comfortable for a night of dancing. The cut of skirt is really fun and allowed me to show off some fun shoes!

Danced all night
I loved this dress! I wore it for a day wedding followed by a formal evening reception, and it was perfect. Loved the high-low hemline and how swirly it was, especially during dancing. And I usually stay away from strapless because I hate pulling them up all night, but this one stayed in place. I dressed it up with a big statement necklace and was good to go!

Beautiful dress, and so comfortable!
The only aspect that I didn't like about this dress was that it was a little longer than I was anticipating. I expected the front to fall down to just below my knee or at my knee, and it went down to about mid shin. Still a beautiful dress! I'm 5'5", so it probably would look great on someone a few inches taller. Overall, loved the color, loved how comfortable it was. Not my favorite RTR dress ever, but still a solid choice.

Wore this to a Christmas party in DC.
Top half is snug, which made me go with the larger size (8 instead of 6). Fit was great and I didn't have to worry about hiking up the top at all!

Good for petite ladies
At 5'2" and roughly 110 lbs, this was a perfect option for me. I didn't have to worry about the length, which is always a problem for me.

The bride totally checked out my bootay and told me how good it looked. I call that a win.
It fit perfectly. The bottom of the dress is weighed so while dancing I really had some good twirls. I was tight, but I could eat the wedding dinner and they way the waist falls you couldn't see the wedding dinner.

Such a COMFORTABLE dress!!!
This was my first experience with RTR, and it won't be my last!! I got this dress for a NYE wedding, and didn't stop getting compliments all night! This is one of the most comfortable formal dresses I've ever worn, and it is extremely true to size. I typically wear a 10, and a 10 is what I wore! I have a large bust and it stayed up all night and wasn't too tight. I am also only 5'2" and then back of the dress didn't touch the floor and was the perfect length. Would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone!!

SO comfortable!
I loved this dress. I am 5'2'' and wore it with 2-3 inch heels and it did not drag on the floor. The top was also perfect. I bough tape in case it was too loose but it fit well- no slipping even while dancing. I love that it wasn't too tight or corseted. I could breathe and move and did not worry about anything all night. This is my first time using RTR and it was a success1

Great customer service; comfortable and elegant dress
The dress was very comfortable and I got lots of compliments. I paired it with some leopard shoes and a camel colored wrap. It's a very forgiving dress as it drapes nicely.

Beautiful dress, when you don't want to go long or short!
The dress is well made and the hemline makes it more dressy than a cocktail dress and not as stuff as a full length gown. The color is dark blue and in a dark ballroom, I did feel like everyone else is a black dress. Overall, I was very happy with this rental and the hemline had a nice flow when you walked. Very well made dress. I am 5'5", 36C and was feeling a little chubby and the 6 fit great.

A beautiful and comfortable dress!
This dress was great. I ended up going with the 6 but I am usually a 4- large chest is likely to blame. It was really comfortable, the color was great, it was easy to accessorize with, and i got so many compliments! I highly recommend this dress.

gorgeous!
loved this dress. so comfortable. a smaller size probably would've fit my bust better. RTR didn't have my backup size available, so i wore the four anyhow. i wore this to a hawaiian event. in a sea of loud patterned dresses, this stood out. lovely! i wore with a strapless slip/bra and it worked just fine.

Amazing night for parents of three.
Dress was beautiful and very comfortable. Dress stayed up no problem. Being a 36D I don't think I'll do another strapless dress. The tightness across the chest can lead to unflattering angles when sitting and such.

The dress is a perfect long dress for a shorter lady.
I love Shoshanna dresses, and this ran a bit tight in the bust. The 8 zipped made the pleat toward the top pull out. I am 5'5" and this dress didn't graze the floor with 2 inch heels.

Perfect for a black tie wedding in DC
I rented this from the store in Georgetown as a last minute option as my classic order didn't work out. It was a little loose on the bust but overall great for a petite person. The hi-lo detail gave it a little edge being such a simple dress. Lots of compliments and fun to dance in.

Glamour central!
Between the dress, hair and makeup, I felt like I was on the red carpet all night. Worn for a black tie wedding and reception, this dress was a great fit. I'm usually a 2 in day to day wear, but tend toward a size 4 with designer dresses. The 2 fit like a glove, so I'd say it runs a little large. I'm a 34C, and was able to wear and dance comfortably without a bra. The hi-lo hem was a beautiful and unique touch, and perfect for girls on the short side who may trip over long gowns.

The dress is great. Looks and feels expensive. I received a million compliments because it was so pretty and different. It fit me perfectly as a 2. I'm very small up top. If you have boobs I would recommend a size bigger.
