I wore this dress on a night out in Vegas and loved it. It's nice enough to wear to a nice dinner but party-ish enough to wear to the nightclub afterward. It was comfortable but still cute. Not too long, not too short. I have a large bust for my height and it accommodated it perfectly.

I wore this dress for my brothers 21st birthday and it was a really nice fit. I have a small tummy (138 lbs), 36C cup size- the dress accommodated everything beautifully. The necklace and color are wonderful. Perfect for a nice dinner followed by a night out.

I liked this dress for my large bust but for my wide hips it was a little challenging. The inside slip was much tighter than the outside so it kept making the dress hike up. Otherwise, I loved the color and the beading at the top but I wouldn't recommend for us girls with the baby birthing hips :)

This dress will come in VERY purple, but don't worry - it pictures blue! Also, I'm 36 B and the halter was a bit too long, oh well :(

The color is gorgeous, a little bit more purple in real life. The halter looked awkward on me though; it was way too big. It wasn't very flattering on my shape and made me look curve-less (5'4", 120lbs, and tried on the size 2, but ended up wearing a different dress).

I love this dress! I rented it for my work Christmas party tonight and I am so excited to wear it. It fits great and you dont really need a bra. The only complaint I have is that the halter straps are a little bit long, but the bust part of the dress fits so nicely it doesnt really matter. Rent this dress! You will love it!

I was so pleased with this dress. I picked it because my favorite color is purple, and I was not disappointed at all! The dress is beautiful and fit perfectly on my body. The only thing, was the halter neck piece is a little big, but I pinned it and it was fine! Can't wait to see my dress I rented for New Years! Will definitely rent again! :)

I wore this dress for my birthday and loved it! The material of the dress is much nicer than it looked on the screen and it was very flattering. Two potential downsides: 1) As others have mentioned the halter neck is a little longer than I would have liked and 2) It has pockets (which I loved) that add bulk to the hips.

I am 5'5" and a 34B on top. size 28 in jeans, and size 4 or 6 in most dresses. I wore this in the size 6 and I found this dress to fit pretty true to size but the under layer on the skirt was a little snug in the hips and the halter straps are WAY long (I had to pin them to keep them from falling down). I wore this to a wedding and it was perfect - I even wore a black cardigan with it and it looked very nice. The color is gorgeous!

I hated this dress. I thought the beads on the halter looked cheap and the color was SERIOUSLY purple. The halter was also just too big on me and I just really didn't think the dress was pretty at all. Good thing I rented another dress with it!

I loved the dress! I wore it to a dinner reharsal. Got lots of compliments! I am thinking about renting it again for a wedding. I wore it with a strapless bra. It was a little big since they didnt have the size I wanted but it worked.

Great dress. I found it a little short but true to size. The neck part was too big though. I had to close it with fashion tape which was a bit annoying. I'm petite, 5'2.

I loved this dress! The color was beautiful and it fit wonderfully! The only issue I had was that the zipper was a bit hard to zip up over the binding over the bust, but after a few attempts, it zipped up smoothly. I was a little worried if the neckline was low, but it ended up fitting just right!

I rented this dress as my first RTR rental, but unfortunately I had to send it back. I loved the color and the top fit fine (34DD) but it was too tight for bigger hips. It looked ok while I was standing,(I didn’t want to look just "ok") but I definitely couldn’t sit in it without looking and feeling tight and uncomfortable.

I had a moment after pulling it out of the bag where I thought this was going to be a no go - it static clung to my legs so badly that the pouf below the bust made me look preggers - but it de-staticked and became awesome within 5 minutes. This is a great dress, especially if you have a bigger chest -- the built in bra actually works with no weird bulges or anything. I can't wait to wear it. The color is beautiful too.

I wore this dress to an outdoor evening summer wedding. Color is great and the cut was very flattering on me. I have a small bust (36A) and I wore this dress without a bra and it still made me look like I had something up there! It was bordering on the short side for me, but I'm VERY tall. I had a little trouble trying to dance in it. I loved the pockets. They're hidden so well, they don't add bulk to the hips. I normally wear an 8 and got the 10 as a back-up. I ended up wearing the 10 because I needed the space for my hips

I wore this dress to my brother in law's wedding and it was a huge success! The length and color were perfect and I was really excited to see that the dress had pockets! The dress is also very flattering and I received a ton of compliments. I did have a little trouble getting the zipper over the banding below the bust even when it was off the hanger (not a huge issue). This was actually my "back up" dress but I loved it more than my 1st choice dress!

I am a 12, 36DD which means I run wide on top in some dresses. Sadly I could not get the zipper closed & could not wear. It also squeezed my boobs, I wouldn't have had to wear a bra. And there is zero cleavage availability. The dress is pretty with a blue / purple color. The beaded halter is intricate with a nice look to it. I wish I could have worn it. I think someone in a 10 or below would look great, or a 12 with smaller boobs.

I read that Shoshanna dresses were great for women with an hourglass shape, and that was definitely true of this one! The color was so vivid and fun, and the beaded neckline made it stand out. Easy fit and a comfortable flow. Great length for a holiday office party too - not too short on my 5'5" frame.

I wore this dress to a sorority sister's wedding and it was great. I had gained a little bit of weight so the dress was great for disguising the little tummy pooch I had put on, while still being sexy. The dress is a bit young looking, so it's probably best for someone in their 20s or younger. The color is more purple than it reads on the computer screen, FYI.

This dress was absolutely fabulous.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a wedding this past summer, in a 4 and 6. The 4 technically fit, but was a bit tight around the fitted waist (around the ribs there is the inside hook waist band cincher type thing), so I wore the 6 and it fit like a perfectly fitted glove. The neck band was just a little bit too long, but that was easily fixable and hidable with safety pins. I wore a short, plain black cardigan to cover my shoulders when I got chilled, and it still looked fabulous. Length was just perfect. I keep looking for more excuses to rent this dress. I highly recommend renting this dress folks, you won't be disappointed!

A little snug on the bottom half so if you are generally larger on the bottom in size go with that size.

I wore this for a summer wedding and had so many compliments. I loved the color and the fit! I usually wear a size 8 but at the time I was breast feeding a 5 month old and my chest was much larger than normal so I did end up wearing the larger size 10. I was worried that it would be too short on me, I'm 5'8" and have really long legs, but it wasn't at all. I'd rent it again!

This was my first RTR experience; I rented it for my birthday, and it was a great hit. The bodice is really structured on the inside, so it kind of holds everything in, an the beaded part is a little heavy, but the quality is gorgeous, and it's a really lovely dress.
