I wore this dress to a wedding and dressed it up with bright shoes and I got compliments all night. Fits snug in the bust and waist and flares out slightly around the hips. I'm very petite and this dress fit perfectly, better than I thought it would. I would definitely rent it again.

Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Loved this dress. I received so many compliments about how gorgeous it was, even from the bride. The only bummer is that it runs small. I normally wear a 10, and the 12 was even a bit snug I probably needed a 14, but thank goodness for the second size.

I rented this for a TV Awards banquet. It was very classy and cute! Loved the bow on the front..and the pockets! The dress received a lot of compliments! I usually wear a 2 or 4, depending on where I'm getting the dress from. The size 2 fit, but it was a little short (I'm 5'8"). I was much more comfortable in the 4! It seemed to be a little longer. The pockets on this dress are great!

I suggested this of my Maid of Honor for my bridal shower, so I would look great! Since it was a surprise, I picked the dress and she did all the work so it was sent to her. I got my usual size (0) and one larger (2) my MOH thought they would be too small but it fit perfectly! Everyone commented on the pockets and I got so many compliments. Wish I could afford the dress and keep it. I'm renting again for my bachelorette party too!

The whole process was super easy and such a brilliant idea! Received quite a few compliments on the dress and being that I had just had a baby 10 weeks ago, I was super happy to hear them!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Loved the style of the dress. I'm usually a 4, but I just had a baby so I ordered a 4 and a 6 and ended up wearing the 4 because the 6 was too large in the hips and looked like a balloon. I have a larger bust and the 4 was definitely tighter in the bust, but I preferred the way it looked elsewhere. Overall, it was a gorgeous dress and an great 1st experience with RTR!

I wore this dress for a work event. It was comfortable and pretty, but also conservative. I usually wear a 0, but the arm holes were sooo small on this dress, that I had to wear my backup size 2 (thank goodness for the backup dress!). This was perfect for my work event, as I was planning, organizing, and hosting the party. This dress was easy and professional, yet still beautiful.

I loved this classic dress! I usually wear a size 4 and RTR did not have my size available so I went up a size. The dress was a little big, not a big deal and loved the pockets! I am looking forward to using RTR again, keep up the great work!!

I rented this dress for a formal business function and it was just perfect! I'm a 2 on top and a 4 on bottom so I rented both sizes. The 4 fit perfectly everywhere which means it runs a little small in the torso. The fit was very flattering and I received lots of compliments from my coworkers. Loved the pockets!

This was a great experience from the moment I paid for my rental to the moment I dropped the dress off at the USPS box. I was shocked that not only did RTR send an already addressed return envelop, but they also gave me double sided sticky tape in case of a wardrobe malfunction and a beautiful garment bag to keep! This won't be the last time I rent from RTR.

I loved this dress so much that I didn't want to return it. The fit was absolutely perfect. A bonus feature that I didn't realize- pockets! The dress has two pockets and you would have never guessed it by looking at it. I received so many compliments on this dress this past weekend. This was my first experience using Rent the Runway, but it won't be my last.

I really loved this dress but my real size (12) was not available. I could have worn the dress in size 10, but I needed the 12 in the chest. Adorable dress though!! I would definitely rent it again if they had my size in stock!

This was my first rent with RTR. I was so nervous that it wouldn't fit or I wouldn't like how I looked in it. I changed my dress order because I lost weight and I'm so glad I did. The 8 was a perfect fit! Got lots a compliments...I almost didn't want to send it back! Totally recommend and will order from RTR for my next event!

I rented two dresses and this isn't the one I ended up wearing because it looked too similar to my friends dress. The dress was extremely comfortable and fit perfectly. Long enough to be worn to formal events but also not your everyday LBD.

Comfortable and Elegant
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is a very comfortable dress. I wore a size 12 but 10 could have worked too. It is a very elegant dress with clean lines. The dress fits loosely on bottom half and fitted on the top. It was just right for a night wedding. I would definitely rent again based on the comfort. There were no "cons" only "pros" on this rental.

Beautiful dress, fit didn't work.
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is a really pretty dress and will be great on the right person. That person is not me. I feel it would be more appropriate on someone with a bit more of a pear shape. It was very large/blousy in the hips and butt and too snug on top.

Beautiful and Stunning
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for a Formal December Wedding. While, I read all the reviews I was still weary of the size so I rented another RTR as well as back up. I ended up going with this dress. It cinched my waist and made me look 10 lbs skinner (who would not love that). It was a gorgeous dress but a little tight on the top that I didn't need to wear a bra. I love the designer and have rented her dresses before. I would highly recommend this dress...the pockets were also a great perk too! I vary between 8 and 10 but the 10 fit a better across my chest and back.

Rented a size 6 and an 8. The 6 was too small, the 8 was too tight in the waist. The length was perfect though, which is usually a problem because I'm only 5' tall. This is a nice dress but more appropriate for a conservative event.

Overall fit: True to Size

I found the dress to really be true to size. I almost wore the size 2 because, like other reviewers mentioned, it was a bit tight in the arms but it fit so well everywhere else that I did end up wearing the 0 and was comfortable all night! Great dress for a holiday work event - it had a business-y feel but was dressy enough for a special event around the holidays!

I ordered in both a 8 (my normal size) and 10. The 8 was a bit snug so I went with the 10. It is a very flattering fit due to the empire waist. I wore it with my spanx and it looked great. I got a ton of compliments.

Classically beautiful dress
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

I am new to this designer but what a well constructed dress. Beautiful details. As a very short person, 5'1, the bodice was a bit long for me. On some other renters the dress appeared somewhat high waisted so I was hopeful that this would not happen. Otherwise as so many reviewers have stated a lovely dress. Many compliments throughout the night.

A very flattering and conservative dress
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wish I would've gotten a picture but my camera wasn't working. This is a nice dress that is probably flattering on anyone. Very well made. It's a bit more formal than casual. Looks great with black patent leather shoes. I would say it is more geared towards a fall, winter, spring event. I am a 32DD and if I was any bigger, I would've had to go up a size for the chest. There is no give around the rib cage where the bow is.

This dress looks great. The satin bottom gives it a nice shine that makes it formal. It was slightly shorter than I had hoped, but it worked. The bow is a nice touch and the material, overall, hides body imperfections. I liked that I could wear a regular bra with this dress. I would rent this dress again for another occasion! Nice experience with RTR.

Shoshanna dresses typically fit true to size. I'm very narrow on top despite a larger chest and wider in my hips and bottom. This dress was perfect. I orderd sizes 2 and 4 and the 4 was just a little too roomy on me. classy and elegant for a black tie wedding!

Pretty dress, but on the conservative side.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

I think Shoshanna runs pretty true to size. This was a backup dress that I ordered, but since my size wasn't available, I ordered a size up. If I really had to, I could have worn it, but would have much rather have had my true size. Also, the cut felt a little too conservative for me and the length was a little long. The material was nice though and the bow on the front and pockets for a nice touch.

Very well made. Both the 10 and 12 fit, but the arm holes in the 10 were tight so I went with the 12. The body was a bit loose,but it was for an office christmas party. Conserbative and classy dress. Very appropriate. AND I havent even worn it yet. Just so pleased I had to post!
