Gorgeous dress!!!!!!!
I absolutely loved this dress! It fit perfect, is a beautiful baby blue lace and is perfect for a wedding. I dressed it down a little with nude wedges and it was perfect for the farm wedding I went to! The pockets made the dress so comfortable and it was the perfect length. Love love love love love

Runs VERY large!
I usually wear a 2 to 4, I went with the 2, as there was no reviews yet. However it fit more like an 8. The sides flared out and I could pinch about 4 inches if fabric in each side, making it too unflattering to wear. Had it fit, it may have been cute. The material seemed high quality and the color was beautiful. Lesson learned.

I loved the color of this dress as much in person as I did online. However, this dress runs very big. I typically wear a size 4, but sometimes a 6 so I ordered both 4 & 6. The 4 was huge on me! I did not wind up wearing this dress. I was very disappointed. I was afraid to order a size down, because I was worried it would be too short. I don't think the 2 would have fit me up top either.

I love this dress! It was very comfortable and I loved the pockets!!! However, the color didn't really come across as pretty as it looked in real life. Also, the red version of this dress is much more vibrant and fun!

Great for hot beach wedding
Great, lightweight dress for a wedding in June in Florida. Great color. Brighter than this picture but certainly not neon or turquoise. I highly recommend Shoshanna dresses for something fun and feminine!

So many compliments!
I rented this dress for a wedding and I was thrilled with it. It's a little loose in the waist so you might want to size down for your second size to see if a smaller size fits better. But that makes it very comfortable and you can actually eat and dance in it. It's snug on top but very flattering. You can wear a regular bra with it. The color is just beautiful, light blue but a rich, vibrant light blue. I received so many compliments on and felt great. My favorite Rent the Runway rental so far. I loved it and wished I owned it. I definitely recommend this for a summer wedding. You will look great in it.

Dress definitely ran large; glad I ordered a size down. It was a restrictive dress due to the lining. Not so easy to dance in! But the dress was comfortable overall and perfect for the occasion (wedding shower).

beautiful dress!
i'm typically btwn a 2 and a 4, but happened to be 2 for this dress. the hem came an inch or 2 above my knee and i didn't bother wearing a bra since the dress held everything in well. the color is beautiful and the dress is very well made. the pockets were an added bonus. can easily be dressed up or down. i wore it to brunch with some sandals and also to work with a thin beige belt and heels. the bottom does poof out a bit so great for hiding a belly if you've had a large meal! the fabric does get a bit hot so i wouldn't recommend for very hot days.

Put together & Pretty in this dress!
This is a flattering dress for most women as it is fitted through the natural waist and then has some give thereafter. Fortunately I sized down for my extra dress based on reviews, but I could've even gone two sizes down. It definitely runs large on top. My only concerned was I am more bottom than top heavy so I didn't want it to be too tight on bottom even though I had read it was large on top. Having worn it, I could've gone a size down to have it more fitted up top and the bottom would've been fine. I was still happy in the size I had and it was a great first RTR experience!

Didn't end up wearing it.
I have a straight figure and this dress was very poofy at the waist - not flattering. Maybe for a girl with curves it would be more flattering, although the top fitted well and I have a small chest. Color and fabric were nice though.

Pretty, but runs big
For pants, I usually wear a size 8 so I went with the 8 and 6 and both were too big. The 6 fit pretty well in the skirt (I am 5' 11" and it was a little too long for my liking) but the top and around the waist was large. I probably could have worn it but I felt it made me look bigger than I actually am. Material looked nice and the color was very pretty as well.

Prettier in person, beautiful bright periwinkle blue.
Dress was a little loose on top, the 10 fit like a glove but I was worried the zipper would get stuck or tear. The 12 fit well and was more forgiving on my rib cage. Fabric is pretty and the color got a lot of compliments. The pockets are a cute touch but do add some extra fabric around the waist. Overall a lovely dress with a very flattering neckline.

This is the second time I have used RTR and it worked perfectly.
I rented this for my daughter to wear to a friend's bat mitzvah. Neckline was a little too low for comfort so we bought a very light blue tank to wear underneath it and that worked beautifully. This would not likely be an issue for an adult woman. She got a million compliments and felt great wearing the dress. She danced during the whole party so it was easy to move around in and a good choice for a dressy summer event.

Oddly cut and definitely runs way big!
I was sent this as a back up- I usually wear a size 10 but this dress in particular I could have done an 8. The bottom is definitely geared towards a more pear shaped woman- almost not in proportion to the top, I felt. The color is pretty though- I think this would look better on someone with more 'junk in the trunk'.

Perfect Summer Wedding Dress
This is a great dress for a wedding as a guest! The lace is not as delicate in person as it looks in the picture and it can run a little small around the chest. However it was very breathable and had pockets. It is also a beautiful blue color so it looks great with a summer coloring.

Beautiful dress!
This dress was perfect for a summer wedding. The color was beautiful and the dress looked brand new. Only negative was it was slightly difficult to sit in because of the lining. I highly recommend this dress!

Was disappointed.
I rented this dress for a wedding and I was disappointed. I just had a baby so I am not 100% sure of my size since I am not yet back at my pre-baby weight. This dress online looks nicer than in person. The color blue reminded me of a grandma and because the dress has pockets it makes the dress stick out a little in the hip area making you look bigger than you actually are.

The color of this dress is unforgettable!
The fit was true to size. I loved EVERYTHING about this dress...the cut, comfort, color. It was such a beautiful dress for the wedding I went to. Lined very well as well. I was so sad when I had to return it! I want everything in this periwinkle color now...it complimented my blue eyes SO well!

I didn't end up wearing this dress. I ordered a size 4 and it was way too big. It has a tight waist seem and the bottom belled out making me look way hippier than I am. The color is beautiful though!

I was attending a wedding in the beautiful Finger Lakes of NY
I loved this dress! It was so beautiful! The color was perfect and I received so many compliments on it. I ordered my normal size and the complimentary size as well and I ended up wearing the bigger size just so that I could be comfortable. I wanted to be able to dance and sit comfortably, and my body proportions are sometimes weird to my size so I just went with the larger one. I am so happy I decided to rent this dress and would recommend it to everyone! Thank you so much Rent the Runway!

This dress was beautiful detailing and the color was perfect for an outdoor wedding. The fit up top was snug, but comfortable. My one qualm was the flare out around my hips, I wish it had been slightly more form fitting. Overall this is a great dress for the price!

Unforgettable color!!
This runs BIG!! So glad I got the size down! Was super concerned about the length as I am 5'10 and all leg, but it was really just fine for an outdoor, afternoon wedding. Not too snug in the armpit area, which is always a concern as well. The color is out of control beautiful...got so many compliments on this! The pockets are a great little addition.

Very comfortable, and got so many compliments!
I'm usually a 6 and while it did fit, the waistline hit me a little too high and the arm holes were a little tight around the shoulders. The 8 was more flattering and comfortable. I got so many compliments and felt beautiful in this dress. It was great for moving around in, as I was the bride's personal attendant and had a lot of running around to do. Would definitely recommend this dress!

Runs a teeny bit large, I probably could have worn the 6, but the 8 was fine with a bra. Simple and no-fuss, but I still received a lot of compliments - I would definitely wear this dress again for another occasion.

Loved it!
I am usually between a size 10 and 12 (usually have to go up to 12 because of my chest) and the 10 fit. It was a little tight, but not tight enough that I needed to go up to the 12. The zipper zipped right up with no "sucking in." Loved this dress! It was very flattering and I received many compliments. It's such a pretty dress.

Great dress!
I rented both the 6 and the 8 in this dress. The 8 was big on the bottom but the 6 was a little snug on top. I decided to go with the 6 and I was happy with the dress the whole night. Comfortable to walk around and dance in. It was a little short when I was sitting but not terrible.

Beautiful color, exquisite lace, POCKETS - need I say more?
Size 12. I loved the color and fabric of this dress, but the bottom was much more tulip-shaped that I realized in the photos. I thought from the photos that the skirt fell straight from a gathered waist, but it actually is a very pronounced tulip skirt. There was a lot of extra fabric around the hips, but it fit TTS or slightly large from the waist up. There was so much extra fabric around the hips that it actually looked baggy - and I do NOT have a small bottom or hips. I could have comfortably sized down, but with as much extra fabric as there was in the hips I'm not sure it would have helped. None of the pictures from the other reviews look the same as it did on me even though some of the girls have similar body types, so it's possible that it may only be the size 12 that is so disproportionate in the hips. I did not get a backup size to compare to. If you are pear shaped, this is the dress for you!

The dress is a beautiful shade of blue and I received compliments all night!
The waist is tight but the pockets are a great touch. The zipper was a tough to close even with some give in the fabric. Overall I was happy with the dress for a beautiful barn wedding as it photographed well and made me feel fancy. I would not rent the dress again, however, as I was not very comfortable due to the tight waist band.

Got lots of compliments on the color!!
I wore this dress to an outdoor wedding and loved it! The color of the dress is gorgeous and the lace is very pretty. It had pockets which was great - easy access to my phone for lots of picture-taking. I opted to go with the "mystery bling" which ended up being a necklace and matched the dress perfectly. Dress was comfortable to dance in, just a little tight in the bust, but overall a great fit. I would wear this again

Larger than Expected
I am a short person and usually wear an XS, 0, or 00. I ordered the 0, and the 2 for back-up. I thought this dress was lovely in pictures, but it was far too large for me! The color and look was just like the picture, but the size was definitely more like a 2 or 4, not a 0. The chest fell REALLY low and wide on me, exposing the entire front of my bra. I would caution anyone with a small bust size or narrow shoulders from ordering this, but was very happy with the color. I really wish it had fit.

Better for petite frames
I rented this dress for my engagement photo shoot. I did not end up wearing it. It's a beautiful color, but the silhouette was not the most flattering on me. I have a larger waist and this dress poufs out at the waistline and accentuated my midsection. I think it would be great on women with a smaller waist. The size 8 was a little tight around my arms but fit everywhere else.

Perfect dress for Alice in Wonderland at a Halloween wedding!
I wore this dress for a Halloween wedding. The theme was to dress as your favorite character from your favorite novel - but to be subtle and not like a big Clifford the Red Dog. It was the perfect blue for Alice in Wonderland. I ordered a 0 and a 2 but I didn't even try the 2 on, the 0 fit. The dress was flattering. It was a good length, not too short. And for small-chested women like myself, it definitely gave the girls a little perkiness. My only complaint is the lace did rub my armpit a little and they are sore today.

It was a cute dress, but was sized weird for me.
While the 2 was perfect in the bust, waist, and length, it was very small under my arms. I had it on for maybe 5 minutes in the hotel room and decided I just couldn't take the rubbing under my arms all night. I put on the 4 and it was a bit big in the waist, but swallowed my chest. I had to wear something so I threw on a cardigan and called it good. I wore it with black tights and brown riding boots.
