This gown is beautiful and comfortable. It fits true to size and the length works well with shorter girls as well as tall girls. It can be worn with a strapless bra or with out a bra.

I typically do not go for strapless styles but loved the unique high low hem of this dress. This style is perfect for most shapes, but I do recommend this for girls with a larger bust as there was much room for me (I'm a 34B). I was still comfortable and did not feel like I would be pulling this up all night as the fit was true to size every where else. I recommend finishing the look with statement earrings!

Not too flashy but simply perfect
This dress was perfect for an outdoor wedding and indoor night reception. The midnight blue color was perfect. I found it to be great for my body. This is the first time I have worn a strapless dress andI did find it slightly loose around the bust. I am a true size 10 but probably could have gotten away with an 8. ( which I typically am not.). I was very happy with this rental.

Navy is a beautiful alternative to a black dress!
I love this dress, and am very tempted to buy it from the Shoshanna website. It is so pretty and easy to wear, super comfortable, flattering, and the hemline is fun and unique. It runs a little large, especially the top (I'm 34C), but I was never concerned about it falling down either. It is so well made, and the navy color is stunning - a great alternative to black. I would definitely rent again for another event. One of my all time favorites!

Gorgeous dress, odd fit
This dress is beautiful! Great navy blue and very unique cut. However, I ordered the size 2 and 4... I typically wear a 4. The size two skirt part looked great but couldn't get the zipper past bust. Then the 4, the skirt was so big it made me look as though I have legs hips but do not but the top was perfect. My body did not go well with dress but would recommend for someone with less curves and very thin.

Stylist Review
A simple and classic gown, but its ultra-flattering pleats make it far from boring. It runs true to size, though I recommend sizing up for a full bust as I was not able to zip up the size 10 completely (a size 12 would've been perfect). The dress is fitted at the bust and waist, and the fabric does not stretch. There is plenty of room at the hips and the dress can be worn with a strapless bra. At 5'2" with 2 1/2 inch heels, the longest part of the hem landed right at my ankles. Pair with a crystal statement necklace or chandelier earrings to glam up this style for black tie.

Beautiful color
This dress is well made and very structured. I thought it would be too large but the piping and interior support made it a great fit. It wasn't heavy and was easy to walk in, very comfortable.

Sensational
I usually don't wear strapless, but I loved the color and was curious about the hemline. I'm Very Happy I decided to order this dress. Many compliments all evening. The dress has a built in bar/ support system. Fit wise: the top was comfortable and not restrictive or revealing. Waist fit like a glove. Roomy in the thigh. Length , ok me, in the front is tea length and longer in the back/ sides. The hemline was fun without calling too much attention. Was able to move around, sit, eat and dance. Great dress. Would recommend, will probably rent again if not buy.

Perfectly Appropriate for Black-Tie Optional
This dress was perfect for a black-tie optional wedding, as it was longer and more formal than a simple cocktail dress, but it was not a full length gown. It has a great inner snap/bustier for support. My stomach is my least favorite part of my body, and I thought this dress was very flattering in the midsection. I'd recommend choosing your normal size and one size down.

Perfect dress!
The fit was like a glove, heavy smooth material so very flattering, so classy. Worn on a 79 degree day and it was the perfect dress for the USAF dinner event. I dressed it down with minimal jewelry and hair etc. and still got compliments all night on the dress. No bra needed and it stayed up just fine, may not be best for smaller busts though.

Memorial Day Weekend Wedding Hit
This dress is elegant and great for short girls like myself ( I am 5'2") if you wear heels. Flattering cut, structured bodice and overall great fit. The only negative is its a heavy fabric so I would not rent for a hot summer day. I received compliments all night and I would rent again.

Loved everything about this dress except it was super hard to dance in it. I am only 5'2" and it basically hit the floor once my heels came off. Otherwise many compliments and very classy dress for a wedding. Can't wait to use rent the runway again!!!!

This was classy and playful at the same time. Got tons of compliments!
I think this dress fit exactly the way it was supposed to. The 8 was not available and since I have breasts on the larger side, the 6 was hard to zip, but it made it. My only issue was that the zipper wasn't the greatest quality. Otherwise this dress was amazing and fun!

Beautiful dress for a friend's wedding!
very pretty dress, it is a true high-lo, I had thought that it was a little more asymmetrical in the back because of the picture but the back is all even. I think the 8 was true to size, a little tight in the rib cage so I didn't end up wearing a bra which was fine because of the structure of the dress. I would recommend it!

Absolutely stunning!!!
This dress was more beautiful than the image shown!! The dress has a built-in bra so I didn't need to wear one - a first for me as a 34DD!! It kept my girls secured all night and not ONCE did I feel like it was coming down off of me. The generous fabric on the bottom half flowed so beautifully! I'm 5' 5" and I was even able to wear flip flops for dancing and it still didn't hit the floor in the back. The color, stunning! Like a jewel. The 6 didn't close around my bust so I went with the 8 that fit like a glove. I'll rent again !!! It's a wonderful, easy service

I usually wear a size 4 but it was too big on top. The 2 fit perfectly. Very flattering cut - makes your waist look small. Also very comfortable. I wore a strapless bra with it and never needed to pull the dress up.

Beautiful detail to a classic silhouette
I loved the hemline of this dress! It's a nice take on a classic look. I got several comments on it and had so much fun dancing in it. The material is a bit heavy though. I think this would be great for a fall through winter event. I rented for July and would not recommend for the summer. Rented both 8 & 10 and can fluctuate between either size...the 8 was a bit tight in my rib cage. I would have given it a 5 but the structure failed - the metal boning was sticking out of the size 10 and was digging into my skin the whole night.

The dress was beautiful and comfortable!
This dress was perfect for my height! Both the size 2 and size 4 fit me well. The size 2 was slightly tight in the chest area and the 4 was slightly loose in the chest area. I decided to wear the size 4 as it would be more comfortable throughout the night (and better for dancing). The picture I took doesn't do the dress justice. It was even more beautiful in person!

This dress was perfect for my brothers wedding. I was hesitant to rent the runway for this event since I'm 25 weeks pregnant and didn't know how it would fit. It was absolutely perfect and I got so many compliments throughout the night! Perfect for preggies and non preggies!

Fit Like a Glove!
My favorite dress from RTR so far. Top was just snug enough so that the dress didn't fall off & I wasn't pulling on my dress top all night. The built in bra was fantastic. The skirt portion was not too full but gave me plenty of room to dance all night. I'm 5'4" and the back hit right at my ankles and the front was mid shin - showed off my strappy shoes perfectly. I loved this dress so much, I want to own it!!

This dress was beautiful and flattering!
I really loved this dress and received a lot of compliments! The only negative thing I have to say about the dress is the top portion runs EXTREMELY small. Since its strapless, the top has a lot of wire/corsetting material to keep it up. Other than that, I loved the dress.

Got lots of compliments on this dress!
Very comfortable and easy to wear, but a little long for shorties like me (5'3", size 10). My particular dress had a piece of the bodice boning sticking out of the lining in my side, so that wasn't great.

A perfect bridesmaid dress!
I rented this dress for a wedding for which I was a bridesmaid. I ordered size 6, 8. The 6 fit well. I bought a strapless bra to wear with it, but the dress kind of has a bra device built into it so if you prefer not to you could go without. All in all, I felt like the prettiest bridesmaid.

Great dress!
This dress was awesome! I did feel that the ribbing was very tight and I unzipped it on my long car ride to the ceremony. However I have a very small chest (34A) so this at least kept it from falling down. The dress is made of nice heavy material and was perfect for a Memorial Day wedding at the ocean. It was longer on me than the model but I am only 5'3" so I was expecting that. With my heels it was the perfect length for me. Great first experience!

Wore it to the symphony (la dee dah, I know).
This is such an elegant, simple, lovely dress! I felt like a million bucks. I have a pretty flat chest, so I ordered a size smaller than I'm normally ever able to wear, and it fit perfectly.

Pretty dress.
This dress was nice for a black tie optional wedding. Could have done the 2 or the 4 (I am smaller on top and larger in the hips) . . . went for the 4 for a little more comfort. Only complaint: there is a lot going on inside the bodice of this dress (boning, hidden hooks/closures, elastic bands, etc.). This made it slightly uncomfortable at various points during the evening - the boning was poking me while I danced! And I also felt like all of the contraptions inside the dress added bulk around the waist where obviousy we all would rather be slimmed as much as possible.

Elegant, beautiful and comfortable dress!
I rented this dress for an outdoor, September, black tie optional wedding. It was absolutely perfect for the event! It's a thicker material, but still breathes. I usually would order a 2 and a 4 as my back up. The reviews said to size up, but I found it opposite for me. This dress doesn't require a bra, because there are clasps and boning inside of the bodice. I ended up having to wear a padded bra to keep the dress up and it was still a bit big. If your shape is smaller up top, I would size down as your second size. The hips are full, so you wouldn't need to consider the bottom of the dress as much in sizing. Lastly, this is also great for short girls. I'm 5'2" and the back of the dress was a few inches from the floor. Great dress and great RTR customer service!
