Beautiful plum color, perfect for fall event.
Pros: the photos don't do it justice, I love the color and the lace detail was beautiful. Had an expensive feel to it. RTR was easy to work with and I love the fact you get 2 different sizes with your order. Cons: there is absolutely no stretch making it very difficult to dance. I could not raise my arms without fear of ripping. Also, when I sat down the lining would show.

Gorgeous , flattering, comfortable to wear and dance in. I got so many compliments on the dress!
The dress was comfortable and fit well. The sleeves seemed a bit tight at first, but soon stretched out a little and were fine.

Great for a fall wedding!
I really loved this dress-color and style were just what I was looking for for my friend's fall wedding! I would say it runs a little small, but mainly in the sleeves. I ordered a 2 and a 4 and wore the 2 because the only difference for the 4 was it was bigger in the butt and longer, didn't help the sleeve problem. Still loved it, would highly recommend!

Beautiful dress in a beautiful fall color - lots of compliments
Loved this dress! As others have mentioned, it definitely ran smaller than other shoshanna dresses I've worn. The lace sleeves were very tight and I couldn't comfortably lift my arms over my head when dancing. However, the dress seemed to stretch and fit nicely as the night went on and I received a ton of compliments. The color was perfect for a fall wedding over thanksgiving weekend!

Got so many compliments on this dress!
Color was beautiful and dress fit like a glove. Arms are certainly a bit tight and it's hard to lift them over your head. Not uncomfortable to wear though - dress rides up a bit when sitting. My dress' lining was beginning to fray so there were little white specs randomly on the dress which was disappointing, but you couldn't notice it from afar. Overall, I had a great experience. Would definitely rent this dress or another dress from rtr again :)

I love this dress but I will say the sleeves made it difficult to lift my arms up.

Awful do not rent unless you have anorexic arms.
This dress is awful. I'm a huge Shoshanna fan and after reading the reviews I ordered and 4 and a 6 which is 2 sizes up from my normal dress size. I couldn't get the arms of the 6 on and the body was WAY too big. I would probably need a 4 or 2 in the bodice and 8 or 10 in the arms to make this work. Thankfully I ordered a backup dress and will be submitting a return for this one. Unless you have EXTREMELY skinny arms do not rent. Waste of money.

Stepping out in a classy dress
For my third RTR rental, I got this lovely deep purple long-sleeve number -- it was a second choice since the original dress I wanted was not available, but it still exceeded my expectations. I felt young, sexy, and amazing for an important dinner date with my husband and his business partners (on a cold December night). It runs a tiny bit tight in the arms and I usually like a stretchier fabric, which is why it didn't get five stars. But I would still rent it again.

Lots of compliments but it's definitely more of a "standing" dress.
Everyone loved it on me but when I say it became super short and tight. I stood most of the event but if I wore it to a wedding and had to do a sit down dinner I would have gone crazy

Such a great color
It definitely runs small and the fabric has no give. I thought the sleeves were tight as other reviews stated. The length was fine, although pretty short on me when seated.

It was AWESOME! Can't wait to rent another!!
First time I have ever rented from RTR and it was an awesome experience! Loved the dress and can't wait to rent another in the future! Dress definitely ran small so I had to use my back up size, mostly small in the arm region! It was difficult to raise my arms to dance but it was manageable! Can't wait to rent another!

Classic, elegant. Would rent again!
This dress fit well throughout. It is sliming and straight but not tight on the waistline. I felt it could be dressed up or down depending on the jewelry or shoes. The color is very dark purple. Everyone said they loved how pretty the dress was. One of my favorite rentals.

Lots of compliments!
Ok, so this wasn't even the dress I wanted to wear. I flew into town for a wedding. The dress was supposed to be there the day I arrived, and when I went to track it, it was stuck on the east coast because of winter weather. I panicked called RTR and they were SO helpful. My wedding was the next evening and they quickly helped me select a couple dresses and told me they'd be at my hotel by noon the next day. They were there right at 12 and in time for the wedding. Like most others have been saying, I had to go up a dress size or two on this one. I'm usually a 4 or a 6 depending on the fit and designer. I had to wear the 8. I ordered up based on other reviews. It was a little snug in the arms and torso, but not so badly that it prevented me from dancing the night away. I got complimented on this dress all evening. It's really pretty on, and wasn't too short or long for my short stature. This was the first time I have tried to use rent the runway and I'll definitely be a returning customer!

Pretty dress but couldn't lift arms...
The color is gorgeous and the cut is nice....big problem is that the arms/shoulders are extremely small. I am not a broad woman, but I literally couldn't lift my arms in this dress. Thankfully, RTR sent another dress (which worked out great). Wish I could have worn this dress.

Lovely dress... But not the most comfortable!
Love the style of this dress, great for a day or evening event. Would have liked it more if the sleeves weren't so tight. I felt restricted all day wearing this dress. Don't think I'll be renting this one again!

Absolutely loved this dress!
For me the dress ran a little big on top. I ordered a 0 and 2 and wore the 2 because the the bottom of the dress was tight for me. But not too tight I couldn't dance the night away! thought it was the perfect length and the sleeves weren't too tight. Overall I loved this dress!

Looked like a mother of the bride dress
I didn't really like this dress and so didn't wear it. The sleeves were tight but the waist was loose, so it wasn't very flattering. Wanted to love it more, but I ended up feeling dowdy.

This back-up was a front runner!
Picked this as a back-up, but loved it enough that I wore it as well as the other! Other reviews about the sleeves were accurate. I have lanky arms and found the lace to be snug, so ladies with more muscle, they will be tight. The dress doesn't have stretch, but it fit like a glove. Always a plus when standard bra works (less hassle!!), too. Color is definitely more wine than the purple you may see in some review pics. Would rent this one again!

Wore this to my friends wedding and loved it.
The sleeves were tighter than I anticipated and I usually wear an 8 so the fit was a little small. The slip underneath Is great and doesn't ride up. It was comfortable to dance in.

Perfect for a fall wedding!
As the others have noted, the dress is tight through the arms - I have larger arms but was still able to make it work. I am 34DDD and found the 8 to be snug through the bust too but going up to the 10 made the skirt and waist too large. Beautiful dark plum color and very elegant looking. My husband tells me I should by this. : ) I wore it with the Lele Sadoughi starburst necklace from RTR too.

Perfect fit! First RTR
This was my first rental from RTR and I could not be more satisfied with this dress! I'm normally a 4 and got a 6 as back up in case I felt bloated. The 4 fit like a glove. I didn't even have to suck it in and the sleeves weren't tight. I could lift them to about 90° it wasn't too bad I could dance and raise a glass or two. The color is a deep purple/plum depending on the lighting. It wasn't too short (mind you I'm 5'3" and with heels +6") and was appropriate for the wedding of my boyfriend's sister. I ask that you please excuse the lack of volume in my hair, haha. I highly suggest this dress for anyone looking to stand out and look classy at any even this fall/winter. Oh, and I will be renting again!!!

Show off your shape without looking slutty
This dress was cute and classy, perfect for a wedding. It fit great everywhere except the shoulders were a little snug.. but as long as you remember not to throw your hands up in the air dancing, it's not a big deal. The color was beautiful for a fall wedding.

Ordered both the 4 and the 6. Ended up wearing the 6 because I wanted it to feel roomier. Other reviewers were correct to note that you don't want to raise your arms very much in this dress, but that didn't stop us from tearing up the dance floor at the reception. Gorgeous color, gorgeous mayor rial. Very happy with my experience.

Loved the dress! The sleeves were a little tight for dancing, but as the night went on they got more comfortable. Fit is great, and the color will make you stand out at any fall wedding (everyone else was in reds and blues). Definitely recommend it!

This dress was amazing. I sized up based on the reviews and the next size up fit perfectly. It is a beautiful dress and the color was the perfect shade of plum. I want to buy this dress!
