Cute dress but I didn't love the cut. It was not very flattering on my body type.

Pretty, casual summer dress
I rented this for an outdoor concert. I wish it had pockets.

Very cute, summery strapless dress. I wore it daytime for a casual date with flat sandals.
Flattering fit, wore a strapless bra with it. Preppy, flirty look.

Exactly as expected!
I wore it to a Derby party and it was perfect! The boning and sweetheart neckline create a very flattering shape. Fabric is lightweight and comfortable. I am more of a pear shape and it fit snugly on top but was still roomy enough in the skirt.

I liked this dress on and it was a wonderful fit. I thought it was a little shorter than I expected but still wearable.

Order a size up
Cute summer dress that I wore to the country club for dinner. Boning was a little uncomfortable and I think I would have ordered an 8 so it would have been less form fitting.

Cute day dress, runs large
I didn't end up wearing this dress as it was my backup dress, but it was unobjectionable. As many reviewers have noted, the color is more beige than white, so it may not work on all skin tones without a tan. However, the primary reason I didn't wear it was that it runs quite large. The placement of the model's hands in this photo make it appear that the dress has pockets, but it doesn't . The "pooch" effect in the photo is the way the dress naturally lays, and wasn't particularly flattering live. Looks a bit "pregnant" on.

Awkward Fit
This dress has an awkward fit to it, unless you have a large bust and skinny legs. The 4 was way too big in the bust. The size 2 fit me better in the bust, but it had a weird pooch around the stomach. If I had worn it, I would have worn a belt, that was the only way to make it look like it fit at the waist. It had potential, but I ended up opting for my second dress from RTR because of the awkward fit.

Too bad it didn't fit!
I rented this for my graduation. I ordered a 4 and a 6 and neither fit. I was super bummed. Way big in the chest (I'm a B cup). It was also really wrinkly, didn't like the fabric at all.

Fun summer dress!
I got this dress for a summer outing and got many compliments. I have rented other size 0 strapless Shoshanna dresses and they usually fit perfectly. This dress definitely runs a bit larger and I had to keep pulling it up. The fun summer colors of this dress were worth it!

Great dress for a summer party!
I'm a little bigger in the hips/thigh area, and this dress fit very comfortably - was not too tight. Would say it runs a tad on the large side. It has great structure and is really comfortable. Can go with a strapless bra, or even without one if you are on the smaller side.

perfect for post-wedding brunch
This dress is really cute and was great for a daytime event. It looks even more casual in person because the fabric is slightly crinkly and the background color is more off-white/oatmeal than white.

Wore this while out shopping with some friends in Chicago.
The material was not as nice in person. The white isn't very bright at all which makes it look cheap in my opinion. I could have probably found something similar at forever 21 and saved the money. Ran a little big up top but I am small chested.

I felt great in this dress!
This dress is made beautifully and I felt comfortable the whole night. I am pretty true to a size 4 dress and this ran a tiny bit big. I still was fine wearing and dancing in it though.

Too Large, and the white was a "dirty white"
I ordered this dress to wear to as a guest to a destination wedding in the Virgin Islands. I received the dress the day before I travelled, so I was unable to exchange it for a smaller size. The dress ran huge. I normally wear a 2, and it was falling off me. I also didn't like the color. It looks like the white stripes should've been white, but they were a "dirty white" like it had been worn and washed too many times. I ended up wearing it because I had no other options, but I hated it. I had to wear a corset underneath just to keep it up!

Runs large, size down
This dress runs about a size large for Soshanna. I sometimes wear an 8 in this brand but definitely a 6 in this dress. Perfect for a bridal shower or summer party. The lightweight fabric holds up really well to wrinkles and boning in the top gives a little extra shape. As a tall girl with wider hips I have trouble finding short dresses that arent TOO short. This dress is right on the border and I ultimately didnt wear it because I was going to be around family, grandmothers, etc but if it were just friends I would definitely wear it.

Didn't fit properly
Rented this dress for my bday rental to attend a polo match. The 4 was too short and not appropriate (I'm almost 5'6"), the 6 was a little tight in the ribcage and bunched weirdly on my back. I didn't end up wearing this dress and I was disappointed b/c it was very cute! As a note to others, it is not white, it's cream (almost like a light coffee color) and it did not have pockets.

Very cute, but bad fit for me
This dress is definitely more cream than the photo shows. I thought it was so cute but was tight for me in the hips. I only got 1 size as it was the second dress to my order (I ended up wearing the first one), so did not end up wearing this.

Great Dress
Normally I wear a 2 in Shoshanna, but this dress was not as full on the bottom as normal. Since I knew I would be dancing, I went ahead with the 4. If it was just for dinner or a cocktail party I could have kept the 2. Love RTR!

great fabric for summer and loved the colors
This style did run smaller than I expected which is why I opted to wear the 12 instead of the 10. It also seemed shorter than pictured on the site- but this ended up not being a problem as it wasn't too short.

Perfect for bachelorette party at beach
I LOVE this dress. I ended up wearing the 4 because we rode bikes to dinner and the 2 was too small to pedal. The dress was probably too dressy for me to be biking in but it was the best way for us to commute! I love shoshanna and will rent any of her dresses!

Did not wear dress
The reason I did not wear the dress was because of the material I did not like how it looked wrinkled. I loved the color and style of it but none the less had to find a last minute outfit.

Great dress! Not super fancy but would be great for an outdoor wedding or date night. True to fit. I thought the picture with the model showed pockets but there are none. I paired it with strapy sandals.

Fun summer party dress!
I ordered both the 4 and the 6 and ended up wearing the 4 because it felt more secure on top. The bust was a little loose in the 6. The dress was lightweight for a summer cocktail party and the striped colors were fun and festive. The 4 was a good length on me, but I am short... I could see it being a mini on others.

The fabric is super casual and wrinkles easily so it would be nice for an outdoor BBQ kinda night. It was fun and playful, but too casual for my event.

Dress was really light and easy to wear. I had to wear an 8 b/c I'm a little straight and this dress tends to favor those with a waist. But it was super comfortable!

Cute, but "younger" looking
This is a cute dress, but I feel it's more appropriate for someone in her teens/20s. Note that the fabric is wrinkly looking. Cute dress, just didn't end up working for me.

This was the perfect summer birthday dress for a night out. I loved it!
Fits true to size. The boning in the top was great and held the shape of the dress well, but was also a bit uncomfortable after a few hours.

Fabulous birthday party! Loved the dress!
This dress is very cute and perfect for my birthday night out. I thought the 10 (my size) felt a little small but when I put it on again I realized it was perfect. The stays/boning in the top are a little snug but I have a barrel chest so I'm used to it. It did make it a little hard to sit, so if you have that issue and you're planning on sitting a lot in this dress, it may be a little uncomfortable. BUT since I was mingling and dancing all night it was perfect! I also wore a turquoise necklace that really popped!

Sweet summer dress
The fabric has a slight crinkle to it but nothing that looks as if it's dirty. Not a pure white either, more of an egg shell. Overall was happy with it, from the picture I thought it had pockets - it does NOT have pockets. Works best for people that do have more of a chest, I'm a size C/D and didn't have to wear a bra with it but anyone smaller than a C I think it might be too big on top. The boning in the bodice though did slightly poke a little bit but that's after wearing it for a few hours and it wasn't anything that would stop me from wearing it again, just think that happens with structured support tops.

Cute, flirty, fun
I wore this at my bachelorette party in Charleston, and it was perfect! I got compliments from friends and strangers, and it fit me and the southern setting to a tee. The boning in the bodice helped keep the fit just right, otherwise it may have felt slightly too big up top (the waist and length were good though). I would definitely rent it or other Shoshanna dresses again.

Great summer find!
This dress was so flirty and fun! It was perfect for my event. It hit me around mid thigh, and was fitted through the waist. The color is a little more off white than the picture shows, and there are no pockets like the picture shows. I would recommend a strapless bra with this!

I wore this dress to a baptism party. It was perfect! While I'm petite, this dress was still the perfect length on me, not too long/ short. I wore it with a pair of nude wedge sandals.

As I have stated in my previous RTR comment, because of exposure to RTR, and the fact that I have a new lease on life with better health, I was able to enjoy an important family affair and look great while enjoying it! You enabled me to splurge on myself, which I have not done in far too long, and when I took to the dance floor for the first time in 20 yrs, I looked fabulous in your clothes! And when I mingled with people at the wedding and brunch who have not seen me since I walked only with a cane or walker, it felt great to feel good and look good. So, thank you, again.
I loved the Shoshanna "Fun in the Sun Dress" even more than expected, once seen and tried on! The size 0 was plenty big, considering I dropped a few pounds just before the wedding weekend. A padded strapless bra took care of a tighter fitting top and an over-all better looking fit. It was a beautiful crinkled antique white dress with pink and tangerine stripes. Very easy to accessorize! I had a pearl and coral necklace, lg silver button earrings the mother-of-the-groom, (my sister-in-law), gave me, and my own Coach peach-colored sandals. It was a perfect outfit for the occasion--An After Wedding Sunday Brunch for the Guests from Out of Town. Perfect end to the fabulous weekend.
