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!

Everything about this dress is fun in the sun! Loved the off- white pairing with the bright jacquard stripes – which made for a more slimmer looking dress. The boning in the bodice and the ruching at the waist helped keep a perfect fit. A "must-rent" dress for the summer!

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.

The dress was so comfortable and the material was very flattering. I got lots of compliments!

A bit big in the chest for those who have smaller boobs like me so the wires made me look a bit pointy but was very comfortable aside from that. I loved the pockets and ended up wearing turquoise earings just like in the photo and got numerous compliments on the color scheme. Definitely would recommend this dress for a more casual/summer affair but I think heels could dress it up a bit - I wore it to a bridal shower.

The ability to have so much variety to my wardrobe without the extra price!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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.

I never ended up wearing the dress but the style was really cute and flattering. The color was not as white as I thought it would be - but more beige - so it was not that crisp.

This dress is well made! Definitely get two sizes--this was my second dress ($25 deal) so I only got one size and the fit was a touch big, alas my waist is very small so I have trouble with this shape sometimes. Great fabric!

Very cute, but bad fit for me

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
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.

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!

Size worn: 2

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.

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!

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.

Cute summer dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I rent this for a night out in the summer. It's definitely very wrinkly, but I was wearing it in a beach setting so it kind of fit in. I felt like the waist needed to be defined a bit, so I added a belt. I normally find Shoshanna to run a bit small, so I ordered a 6 and an 8, but the 6 ended up working well.

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!

I looked at pictures of myself in this dress after the event and I looked fat in them :( I think maybe the cut and the fact that I didn't have a tan made me look... Fat. It's a great dress and fit well it just didn't really work on me.

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.

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!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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.

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

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
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.

Fabulous birthday party! Loved the dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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!

Too Large, and the white was a "dirty white"

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
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!
