Another great Shoshanna dress!
I rented this for a semi- formal banquet for my professional society. The size 2 fit perfectly. Color is stunning; bright cobalt blue. I wore it with nude pumps and a chunky gold necklace. Best of all, it has pockets! Also, very comfortable to wear and dance in.

Just perfect!
Wore this to my brother's wedding and it fit like a glove. Accentuated my waist and bust without being too revealing. Didn't need to wear a bra with it (though it was definitely possible to.) got so many compliments.

Comfortable wedding guest.
This dress runs a little large. I'm usually a 4 but the 2 felt more secure on top. The color is a much more vibrant blue in person and the overall look is very classic. It is also very comfortable. The fabric has a little stretch to it and its was great to wear a normal bra to a formal event.

Used this dress to take my engagement photos
This dress ran very true to size. The bust fit snugly and it wasn't too short. Very classy look with nice blue color. Rental Photo gave the impression of a more purple hue however this is a very true blue color.

Very cute, but runs big
I rented this dress as a backup for another RTR dress and it was gorgeous, but unfortunately I couldn't wear it because it was way too big. I wish I had consulted with a RTR stylist about sizing because I probably could have gone down a size or two from my regular size.

I had a wonderful experience with the rental and it made the night so much fun.
This dress had a very great shape and color. This was my 2nd dress so I didn't get a back up size. I was lucky the 6 fit. Little tight, but fine overall. I wore this for a fancy birthday dinner. I normally wear black dresses and this was a nice change.

Great first experience!
This was my first time using Rent the Runway, and I absolutely loved the entire experience! The Shoshanna dress was perfect for a wedding, and was incredibly comfortable, too. I wore it with the Tie Up in Crystal Necklace which I thought was a great complement to the dress neckline. Not only did I receive so many compliments from the wedding, but one of my friends loved the dress so much that she rented the same one for another wedding a couple of weeks later! Thank you for the great experience!

People kept complimenting me on the amazing color/fit! Love this dress
This dress was perfect! I wore it to the Savor Beer Festival and I got lots of compliments. The fit is pretty true to size- I have a pretty extreme hour glass figure so it was a bit too loose on my waist but fit my bust well which is sometimes hard for me to find. I was sad to have to send this dress back!
GabrielleApril 12, 2013
Could you comment on the length? I am 5'5" as well but I'm very self-conscious about my legs so I prefer things at the knee or right above it

cute with a ponytail
I am usually a size 0 (5'1" and 32A and petite) and the size 0 fit very well. The dress was not too long on me even though I normally wear a petite. The fabric is thicker than I imagined, but it didn't affect the fit. I liked the back of this dress and it wanted to show it off, so I opted to wear my hair in a high ponytail. I received lots of compliments on this dress. It was great for a wedding because it wasn't too eye-catching or revealing, but I still felt fabulous and comfortable.

I was nervous that I wouldn't like the dress as much in person, but then it arrived and I fell in love!
I loved this dress! I had ordered the 2 and 4 because I was nervous about the top fitting, but the 2 fit perfectly! The color of the dress is definitely more blue than it appears in the model picture, but still a beautiful color. You can see in my picture how it compares to the purple dress my daughter is wearing. The snaps on the underside of the dress are a great little touch to keep your bra straps from falling down. The length was perfect on me (I'm 5'5"), hit about 2-3" above my knee. So happy with this dress and RTR!

bridesmaid
It was just too simple. When my husband said 'that looks like a bridesmaid dress' I knew it was the kiss of death. Even with a big necklace and fancy shoes, it wasn't standout which is what I wanted. In retrospect I should have known from the pictures but c'est la vie. Runs slightly small in the bust. I wear 34DD and had trouble zippering over the bust but once it was zipped, it's strong and snug.

Dress transitioned easily from dinner to dancing.
This dress was perfect for a work-related awards dinner. The skirt is full and the bodice is tighter. Length was modest. The color is more blue than purple looking.

Fancy Brunch
Pretty dress but ended up looking a little potato sack-ish on me because I ordered too large of a size. Moral of the story - size down if you have a smaller waist. Pockets are exciting, color is great and material is sturdy.

Thanks to RTR for making our engagement pictures perfect! I cannot wait to marry my fiance.
I wore this dress for my engagement pictures with a little lace bolero jacket - it was a HUGE hit! The pictures were beautiful and my fiance was sad to hear that we had to send the dress back! Family and friends cannot stop complimenting the dress. I am 5'3" and about 116lbs and I wore a size 0. Would rent again in an instant!

Hey Sonya - I love that bolero! Where is it from? I would totally love to copy your look for my engagement pics coming up in a few weeks...

Great dresse
This dress is beautiful and fits really nicely. The fitted top and volume in the skirt flatters just about any figure. I ended up going with the 2, but was glad I got the 4 as backup.

Everyone asked where I found such a gem of a dress - the looks on their faces when I told them it was rented were priceless!
I rented this as a backup dress to another RTR rental for my birthday weekend... Thank goodness! The other dress wouldn't zip over my bust - and although this one did, it was still a little big at the waist. Of course that didn't stop me from having a fantastic night. The pockets and the perfect look-at-me color certainly helped.

NYE Wedding in Bostom
Love, love, loooove this dress. Great if you have a larger chest and you don't want to spend your whole event battling gravity with a strapless dress. The material is thicker, almost like grosgrain ribbon, and there are curved seams at the top of the dress that accentuate curves. The skirt is a little short and has a slight bubble effect, but it works great if you've got an hourglass figure. Plus, it has pockets! I wore the dress with super high gold glitter pumps and got tons of complements on the whole outfit. I'd definitely recommend this dress if you want to be comfortable and look great!

corset built in!
I went with the smaller size b/c of my waist and hips, so the seaming in the bodice worked like a charm, giving max decollatage! Gorgeous color with dark hair and complexion

this dress is stunning! Because of the flared shape, it poufs a lot when you sit, but other than that, this dress is fantastic! I rented it for my engagement photos, and the color was perfect!

This was for a TV segment in Miami that my friend modeled for! She's next to me in a Lela Rose dress from Rent the Runway.
Loved this dress. Shoshanna almost always run true to size so this is a great go to if you're feeling uneasy about fit. It also gave me some nice cleavage!

Wore this to a charity event - felt classy and not over-exposed. I'm normally a 6 and probably could have event fit into a 4 in this dress. Best part - it has pockets!! Could be a cute bridesmaid dress as well.

Fun, pretty dress
The dress was adorable and fit great (I think Shoshanna does an amazing job of designing dresses for girls with curves). I generally wear a size 4, but ordered a 2/4 based on stylist suggestion. The 2 was perfect and very flattering. I'm 5'4" and it hit about an inch or 2 above my knee. Fun little party dress!

Loved this dress!
I wore this dress to my school's winter formal and I loved it! The color and material were perfect for winter and it was a perfect length for me, a little short, but still classy. I ordered a 4 and a 6 and both fit fine in the waist, but for those with a bigger bust, I would say order a bigger size. I also loved that I could wear a regular bra. It was a lovely dress and I got lots of compliments all night.

I received many many compliments at the Hall of Fame event. People loved the fit, the color, and how appropriate it was for the event. A woman walked up to me and told me that her table had voted for the best dress at the event, and I won! Talk about a compliment!
I rented this dress for a Hall of Fame event, and despite my initial worries of it looking too bridesmaid like, I was pleasantly surprised that it definitely did not! The blue is absolutely gorgeous (sapphire blue), and I received many compliments regarding the dress fit, color, and style. I did not look too busty either, which I liked, especially since this was a work event! This is my second Shoshanna dress rental, and I have to say that this designer is extremely flattering. Rent this dress- you will love it, and others will compliment you all night!

I rented this dress in a size 2. The color and fabric are stunning. The fit on top was perfect. I loved that I was able to wear a regular bra, and it made my B cup breasts look great! The skirt, however, was very boxy and did absolutely nothing for my slender figure. Despite how much I loved the top half of the dress, the bottom half fit me so poorly that I ended up choosing not to wear it.

Cute dress, really pretty color. Its a tiny bit shiny, which I don't usually like, but it works fine with this dress. I found the top of the dress to be more flattering than the bottom however, which was kind a weird length (about 2 inches above my knees, not super flattering on me). I think this is a very versatile dress however, I wore it with a blazer and wedges to a nice brunch.

Heavy material, pretty
I usually am a 4 or a large 2 and the 2 was a little loose. Loved the fit but I wanted it for an afternoon tea party in the summer and the material was too heavy/evening or winter. It reminded me of grosgrain ribbon, very pretty and interesting. Great dress but for evening or the winter.

Loved this dress. Wore it to a wedding last weekend and the silhouette was perfect for my body type, hiding any misgivings. I did wear a bra with it to fill out the bust a little bit (Im about a 34B), but that worked fine for me. The dress has a real iridescence to it that I don't think comes through completely in the picture, but it is beautiful. Skirt was not too poofy. It was a little longer than I expected, especially since I'm tall. It came a few inches above the knee, but again I still loved it. Finally, I think I could have gone a size down. I ordered the 10 (I'm always a true 10), but I'm pretty sure the 8 would have been just as good. Hard to tell, but a 12 was way too big. Accessorized with gold/bone bangles and earrings and nude sling backs. So fun!
