Terrific color - appropriate for many events
This actually came with the tags on it which I thought was cool! I rented this for work (I'm a teacher) and selected the 8 so it wouldn't be too fitted. If this is for a wedding or date you can 100% size down for a tighter fit. The material is sturdy and thick. I would rent again!

Too large and nonflattering on short frame
Runs large and not very flattering on shorter frame . I usually wear a 6/8 but both options were too big and baggy fitting

Stylist Review
The color is absolutely perfect for the holiday. One thing to keep in mind is that this dress is more of a sheath option. It therefore has a looser fit and has no stretch. I found it to run quite large. I therefore recommend sizing down for a backup . I also recommend this for those who are larger busted as there is ample room in the bust area and it can be worn with a standard bra. Don't forget to add a fun necklace to complete the look!

Great work dress
I loved this dress! The fabric is thick and the stitching is so flattering. I have a hard time finding a shift dress that works for my pear shape, but this one followed the lines of my body without being too tight in the hips or loose in the chest (one of which often happens). Wore it with leopard pumps and got a ton of compliments at work too.

Great for work holiday party but a little frumpy - fun color and conservative cut!
Read the reviews - this dress is truly a "sheath" and is not at all fitted. It's a great color and fairly conservative, so I felt like although it was bright, it was not too sexy and I could wear it comfortably to a formal work dinner. Like most Shoshanna dresses, it is great for bustier women (not me!) and I found that I was swimming in it. While the seams are interesting since they are diagonal, I thought the dress had very little "wow" value and was only ok. The length is perfect for a work event, but it definitely needs to be dressed up with a necklace.

Was a little boxy, but still a nice, conservative, feminine dress!
Wore this to my company's Christmas party. Paired with nude clutch, nude heels, and diamond earrings and bracelet. Fit was good, but a little boxy and rigid at times. Overall, a good rental!

Too big! Didn't wear it.
Ordered size 8 and it was too large. Since dress is form fitting, not sure it would have fit me in smaller size either! Waist was big.

Clean, classy look
I loved where the seams on this dress were placed stylistically. Personally it fit well on the bust and hips, but there was a little too much extra fabric around the midsection. The color was fantastic.

Big in the hips and bust. I am normally a size 4 and this felt like 2 sizes too big.

Great color, very comfortable.
I usually wear a 4 or 6, and I wish I had sized up to the 6 to have a little more room at the bottom. I'm 5'7 and found it to be a little on the short side.

This dress is a great choice for petite women. It fits sort of large around the waist, but otherwise fit wellm especially the length.

Great color, nice fabric - made for an hourglass figure!
Great color, felt good on - a very substantial knit. I am usually a 6/8 and the 6 fit well over the bust (34D) but was slightly big in the waist/hips. If you are a true hourglass figure, this dress is for you! Even with it being slightly big, I got a lot of compliments.

Great color, boxy fit.
I wore this to work - which involves a lot of sitting at a desk. By the end of the day, the dress was pretty wrinkled across the hip/thigh area. The model's photo makes the dress look like it has some shape to it but on me it was very straight and boxy. If you like a defined waist, this is not the dress for you.

Great traditional work or cocktail dress.
I loved the color of this dress. It's a more blue-red which works well with my skin tone. The dress is simple so it was perfect to show off my bold jewelry. Great dress. Will likely rent this again.

Great fabric and color. Size was perfect.
This picture is after wearing the dress all day, so it did get a few wrinkles from sitting at work all day - nothing unexpected. The fabric is thick and forgiving. If you are between sizes, I'd suggest sizing down as this is a looser fit, especially on the waist. I loved the color. The only small complaint I have is that the seam in the bust area ends kind of close to where your nipple would be. So when I got to work and first looked in the mirror, from a first glance it looked like my nipples were showing through the fabric (which was not the case). Rather, the seam from the fabric ends in an unfortunate place. I wonder if anyone at work had that thought too. Oh well, I got over it, and overall I liked the dress.

Great, reliable shift dress!
Wore this to work on two occassions, both times with black tights and black flat boots, and some sort of black cardigan (either drapey or normal fit) over it. Fit true to size, although if you want more of the baggy shift dress look I'd size up, especially if you are very curvy. I'm a 36A with average size hips and I had a comfortable amount of room in the 10, but if I was any bigger at either of my curves it would have been snug, and not very "shift" like.

Great color, loved the sleeves. Little tight on the rear-end - but that's usually the case with me!
Wore to work and got lots of compliments. The neck is flattering but still modest. Length is a little on the shorter side for girls like myself with big bottoms...but still a great dress.

Runs large
I rented this for an everyday work dress. I normally wear a size 6 in dresses. This dress is VERY loose in the midsection and sleeves. It's boxy and unflattering. I think a 4 would be a much better fit. I wish the description had indicated it ran large and to size down. I'm returning it without wearing it. It's so bizarre because the last Shoshanna dress I had to go up a size and for this one I need to go down. I probably won't be renting any more Shoshanna dresses unfortunately as it just isn't working out. The color is and material is nice though. Disappointed it doesn't fit.

Solid work dress
After reading reviews, I ordered a size down and it worked perfectly. The dress is a little boxy, but the lines/details give it more intrigue. I wore it with a chunky, black statement necklace and got many compliments throughout the workday. Worked wonderfully for a spring/summer day, but I could also see wearing a white button-down under it in the winter months and it still being a great outfit.

Stylish!
I rented this dress for a family photoshoot during the holidays. I wore it with black tights and mid-calf boots. Size 4 wouldn't zip up all the way because I have a large chest, so I went with the next size up. I expected it to be shorter but the hemline fell 1" above my knee (I am 5'1"). Unfortunately, I don't have the curves for this dress, because the bigger size made it look very boxy. I would still recommend it for an everyday, casual look.

Work appropriate red dress
This was a nice dress for work. It was baggy on me, but not too horrible to the point that I couldn't wear it. It's a nice material and can be dressed up or down. I will rent again in a smaller size.

Comfortable, very well made, and reasonably conservative
My weight fluctuates a lot so I share stats for individual rentals- about 144 in this picture at 5'7. D cup, wide hips (probably about 40") and tush to go with it. This dress was soft but structured and thick without being super hot. I wore it to work and it was appropriate for my office, but kind of short when I walked as it would ride up. The color is cute and stands out without being garish. Happy with it, but would not rent again as it did not flatter my hourglass body shape. There was so waist definition, so my hips/butt kind of pulled everything out and made it look like I had a stomach. Would look amazing (chic/modern) on athletic or slim-hipped women

Not good for pears, but still a beautiful dress!
I wanted to love this dress so badly! The color is bright, I liked the seaming, and the length is perfect...if only it fit my shape! This dress seems to be clearly made for someone without hips. I wore it anyway with a blazer over it, but I was self-conscious about the fit the entire time. I really don't think sizing up would have helped.

The color of this dress is great. The shape isn't my favorite. It's right in my hips and arms and looser in my waist. I maybe should've sized up. It's simple but the seams and color makes it interesting.
