Not good for big bust

Very beautiful dress. Nice length, fabric sexy yet classy. Unfortunately the dress was a bit tight in the bust. I could have worn it but my chest looked smushed and I was worried I would tear the back I the strap if I move my arms too far. Definitely a good dress for someone with a smaller chest.

Great dress! Flattering and forgiving.

I rented this dress for a black tie New Year's Eve party. I recently had a baby and was concerned that the dress would not conceal my still shrinking baby bump. However, it did the job well. This dress is fitted but it was still roomy enough on the bottom not to cling to you. Also, the black and the pattern from the lace are very forgiving. The fabric was thick and laid well. I ended up wearing the 2 which was very close in size to the 4 but fit better in the top. If you have a small chest this dress might not work as well. I'm normally a 34a but am currently a 34c and I think it would not have fit as well if my chest was smaller. All in all, a beautiful dress and great rental!

Perfect dress for the occasion

This actually wasn't the dress I had originally rented (thanks to someone wrecking the one I reserved), but I ended up loving this one even more. The dress was very flattering and fun. It was about an inch longer than I would have liked but that's okay. Overall, the dress was perfect!

Chest was wayyyy too small but a friend was able to wear it instead.

The dress for me perfectly EXCEPT for the bust. I was so disappointed that I couldn't get the dress to zip the last inch or so. Luckily I had a backup and the dress was able to be worn by my friend who didn't like her original dress.

Gorgeous LBD!!

Wore this dress to a wedding in September and it was perfect! Comfortable, classy, and very easy to move/dance in. Love the lace detailing around the neckline and cap sleeves, I received so many compliments! Dress is true to size, I'm 5'4" and dress fell about 2 inches above my knee. Thanks RTR!

Perfect LBD with a twist.

Perfect combination of classy and sexy for a fall engagement party. The built in corset was great because it means you don't have to worry about wearing a bra. Would love to wear this dress again.

Dress arrived on time!

I usually wear a size 2 and it really fit well. Hit just above my knee and actually has two small pleats in front. Only con is the boning in the top - one side poked through the inner fabric (not through the outer lace). Made it slightly uneasy while sitting. Sleeves fit well, not right and was able to wear a normal bra. Overall it was perfect for a formal wedding in NYC, loved it!!

Beautiful dress. I would say it is a relatively conservative length on me at 5'4". The back is super cute. Fabric definitely has no stretch.

Bridesmaid Dress

This dress was pretty but not one of my favorites I've rented. I found that the center seam wasn't very flattering on me, but I also don't have much of a waist. The lace detail and boat neck was very feminine.

Pretty dress.

I didn't actually end up wearing this dress because I liked my back up dress better, but it did fit for the most part. The lace was beautiful and I liked the open back a lot. The only caution I have is for athletic girls with broad shoulders. It was a little tight across my neck because of my shoulders...I still could have worn it in a pinch though.

Nice lbd but not for my occasion

Cute little black dress with great lace detail. Fit was tight around the shoulders and I don't consider my shoulders to be beyond average width. I didn't end up wearing it because I'm looking for something for my honeymoon and decided I didn't want black. Would have been nice to wear to dinner though. Loved the open back detail . I usually wear between a 2-4 and this size 4 fit me well other than the tight shoulders. Would probably rent again for the right occasion

Grandparents Funeral

I rented this for my grandparents funeral. I had lost a bunch of weight recently and didn't have time to go out and shop! I had to go up a size just because it was tight across the chest and made me have back cleavage, yuck! Although my luggage got lost the way out to my destination and i didnt have my dress for the funeral itself, i was able to change into afterwards for the rest of the events that day. It was super cute and i received tons of compliments.

I loved this dress and it arrived on time and in good condition!!

This dress fit perfect! Was true to size. I absolutely loved this dress and felt very comfortable in it all night. Added bonus is the top fits very snug (but not too tight) so you don't have to wear a bra. I wore this dress to a formal charity event and received many complements on it. I would rent it again for sure!!

The lace seemed frayed on the neckline. Cute but unforgiving. Runs a teeny bit small.

I ended up wearing my backup. This dress is cute but the lace seemed a little frayed at the neckline. I didn't like that my armpit fat was kind of out for all to see. Tried it on at a Rent the Runway store and was able to get zipped up but there was some small pulling of the fabric in the back. Just a hair too small to be comfortable. I liked how it looked on all the other reviewers but it just wasn't meant for me.

Classy, quality dress

Dress fit really well. I'm 5'4, and the length was perfect, not too short or long. The lace details were so pretty. I was able to dance comfortably. I wanted a classy dress that wouldn't stand out too much, and this was perfect.

I'm usually between a 2 and 4 and the 2 fit perfectly. Usually 2 is too short on me (I'm 5'7) but this one fit great! Detailing in front is also very pretty

sexy black dress

I ordered this dress as a last-minute exchange and it worked fine for my event- but not the most comfortable dress I've ever worn. I had to adjust the bottom every time I stood up (it would ride up). If you have a 'curvy' bottom, this may not work for you. The lace, while very pretty, was tight and uncomfortable against my throat. It did fit well in the bust and waist, didn't have to wear a bra due to the corset-like construction hidden inside the dress. There is absolutely no give, as is usually the case with lace. All that being said, I did receive lots of compliments and thought it looked good in pictures. I liked the defined waistline- it hit at just the right place. But, would not rent again. I marked 'runs small', but would order your normal size, and size up for your second size.

What can I say, I loved this dress. Loved the look of a strapless with the hold of a sleeved dress.

This dress was great. I wore it for a banquet. The fit was very nice, but I did decide to wear an 8 instead of a 6 because the material does not stretch and I have a curvy back side. I always wear a 6 or an 8 depending on the dress. The dress has a corset inside of it so once it was on, it stays. This was great for a girl who is a D cup. I did wear a strapless bra, but the way the dress is structured, you could get away without wearing a bra at all. I am 5'4" and the dress hit just above my knees, PERFECT! There is a seam at the waist that goes all the way around the dress, so I decided to wear a black belt to enhance the waist and also hide the seam. I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone who wanted to dress up, look sexy without revealing too much.

Great dress for a formal evening out!

I loved this dress! The only reason why I didn't give it five stars is because it's a tad uncomfortable. The lace doesn't give much, and the lace on the arms is a little constrictive. I'm usually a 6, but because of my chest size, I wore the 8.

My favorite dress I've rented so far!

I wore this for a black tie optional wedding and felt amazing. I received so many compliments and it was comfortable to dance in all night long. I did wear a strapless bra, but you could go without one if you felt comfortable because it is tight up top like a corset. I loved this dress so much that I would totally consider buying it. Can't wait to rent another Shoshanna dress soon!

It was beautiful, but....

When I saw it on other people in photos, it was beautiful. The lace was so elegant and classy. I am typically a 0 or 2, so I decided to order a 2 in this dress. When I received it and tried it on, the sleeve holes were so tight and constricting, I could barely lift my arms! The lace was very pretty, but it too was constricting! The dress was beautiful- just don't wear it to an event where you are going to lift your arms above your waist (i.e. dancing!).

I received many compliments on the dress! Great material and very classy dress.

Pros: Gorgeous front and detailed lace-high neck Cons: It seemed that the front portion of the dress made my stomach look like it was poking out just a little at times. Also, I ordered a size 6. I'm a 36C and I found that the size was very tight in the bust.

Not really a-line, fits a little tighter than most Shoshana dresses.
