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.

Cute, feminine dress!
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.

Fun playful and super casual
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.

Fun and flirty dress! Perfect for summer
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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

Sweet little dress!
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.

Perfect for summer party
Ordered this as my back-up dress, and did not end of wearing it because I like my other one so much. Not to say that this one isn't great! It fit really well and looked good on. My only comment would be that the fabric makes this one a little bit more casual. I needed something for a wedding rehearsal dinner party, and the cotton fabric was just slightly more casual than I wanted to dress. Would be perfect for a summer BBQ!

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.

A favorite rental for me, wish it was still in my closet to own. Liked the fact it was made of cotton, nice for summer occasions.

The ability to have so much variety to my wardrobe without the extra price!
This dress is actually a lot cuter in person. It has more of an off white, linen background than a flat white that the picture indicates. It is a great length, the top stays put (especially if you don't have a lot to errr...keep it up:)), but there is a slight "pouch" at the middle of the dress that can be easily fixed with adding a belt. Overall, a very fun dress.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Fun dress for a casual party
This was my first order from RTR, and I couldn't have been more pleased. The fit was true to size and fit comfortably. I wore this to a casual, afternoon engagement party with a denim jacket and boots and got several compliments. As other reviews stated, the dress is a bit more off-white than it appears online. Overall, great dress!

The fit just wasn't right for my body. Just like the expression: wear the dress, don't let the dress wear you. This dress was wearing me and it just didn't look right
