Photographs beautifully!

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress photographs so beautifully! It's comfortable and flowy. The material isn't the greatest if you're planning on wearing this for an outdoor wedding, could get a little hot. The waist has a little fringe layer I didn't notice in the model's photo which was a little off putting at first but the fit and length were pretty perfect so I couldn't harp on it too much. I'm almost 5'8" and wore this with flats with no problem. Order a size up if you have a bigger bust. Will be renting this one again!

very long maxi

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I rented it for a wedding and ended up going with my other option. It was a very pretty dress and would be fin to wear. I agree with the other review that it is a little casual. You could wear it to a bridal shower or out to lunch. I'm 5'4" and had to wear it with my tallest wedges (4.5 inches) to keep it from dragging. So if you're short prepare to wear the big heels with this dress! I added a belt also because the waist was a tad too loose for my liking.

This dress ran true to size. It sinched at the waist and flowed comfortably down from there. The material was very comfortable and light which made it perfect for sitting and eating or on the dance floor. Would definitely recommend.

I rented this dress for a season premiere party. The dress was very beautiful and comfortable. The chiffon was forgiving in all the right places plus it had pockets! My only dislike was that it made me look even bustier than I am but otherwise I would rent it again.

I am learning that the Shoshanna dresses typically run large. I am usually a 6, sometimes 8, but I think I could wear a 4 in this brand. This dress is much prettier in the photos than it is in person. It ran large and was really long. I rented the medium length dress but it was still long. I am 5'5" and was even wearing 2 inch heels and felt it was too long.

I wore this dress for my best friends prom and I felt gorgeous in it

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress fit me perfectly in all the right places, except for the length. I usually have a hard time wearing high neck fitted dresses because of the size of my chest, but this dress didn't squeeze them and the side darts AND the waist were in the proper place. The length of the dress was about 3 inches too long with the 1.5 inch heels I had chosen to wear, so my mother did a quick invisible tape hem job that lasted for most of the night (I stepped on it a few times while dancing so it came out a little bit). I received tons of compliments on the dress and felt comfortable in it for the whole night. Overall a great choice! I would definitely recommend, but if you're short like me, invest in some super high heels or expect to spend some time hemming.

Perfect for my engagement party on a hot June day. A first rental. Great. Very long, but I was expecting that and used fabric tape to temporarily hem it up.

this dress is soooooo long

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The pictures of this dress look amazing, in person not so much. The fabric was not what I expected it would feel like.. It was somewhat rough, and felt a little cheap. Also, when I put the dress on it was at least 8" too long even with heels on.. I'm not sure anyone could wear this dress unless they were 6'2". I ended up calling and talking with a stylist who sent me another dress that worked perfectly! I was pretty bummed.

I sized up based on other reviews and it fit great. The color is a little more muted than the photo but the print is incredible! I could have gone without the fringe around the waist but it was hardly noticeable.

I am an hourglass shape and this dress did nothing for me. I tried it on but did not wear it to the event. My friends said it looked like grandmas nightgown on me. A friend tried it on that tends to be more of a ruler/athletic type and it gave the illusion of curves for her.

Got so many compliments on this dress!

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size

Love, love, love this dress! It was a tiny bit snug in the chest so went without a bra but the top was structured enough and the pattern busy enough you couldn't tell. It has pockets, which I love, and was the perfect weight for a summer wedding. I did rent the 10R & the 12R but for some reason the 12R was about 3 inches longer making it too long for my biggest heels. I wore it with the Slate & Willow Pale Pink Floret earrings and they were perfect.

Beautiful print and perfect for a summer wedding!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress 2 & 1/2 weeks post baby. I loved the print as it could "hide" any post baby weight, bra friendly (bonus are the bra strap fasteners inside the dress!) and pockets (so I could keep my phone on my for updates from my mom watching the baby!) I wore 4 inch heels though and the dress was still incredibly long so I had to be careful especially when walking down stairs not to trip! I am normally a size zero in Shoshanna, but knew I was going to have to go up a size and the size 2 was perfect.

Ok so my last review said the Mai Tai dress was my favorite rental....-update- this is my favorite rental ever. This made me feel like a 5'11 super model. It was lengthening and so flattering. The dress fit perfectly, other than being a little long, it was fine with my 4 inch heels. The color was vibrant and beautiful, material was light and airy perfect for a summer wedding and the quality of the dress was like it was never worn. I loved that it had pockets as well, so chic. I wish I could wear this dress every day of my life. RENT IT!!!

Beautiful Print. Good fit. Wish I could have worn it.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress runs true to size. The print is beautiful and the fabric is lovely for the summer. I did not wear the dress to the wedding, but instead used the backup dress I rented because the lining of the dress was hanging about an inch below the hem in the front (the picture does not do it justice about how bad it looked in person). I loved the dress so much that I thought briefly about trying to pin it up, but didn't because I thought that might hurt the fabric and/or not look good. Unfortunately, I didn't have any fashion tape. I agree with other reviewers that the dress would look better and be more flattering without the ruffle, but it is so small that you barely notice it (which means it also seems pointless). All of that said, I was really disappointed that I could not wear it to the wedding because the fit was perfect and the print is lovely.

This dress was absolutely perfect. Color is much more vibrant in person!!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Fit was true to size. I am 5'7 and wore the 2 regular with flat sandals. The dress hit the ground perfectly! The long would have been perfect for heels but I wanted to be comfortable and chose flats. The color on the dress looks so much better on and in person than the photo or on a hanger. I received compliments all night and was so comfortable! This actually wasn't the dress I ordered but after a mixup with the original dress, a stylist helped pick this one for me and shipped it to me in time for the wedding. I don't think I would have picked it originally based on the image but I'm SO glad I ended up with this one. This was for an outdoor wedding, pretty formal (tuxes for men).

The mid-section isn't the greatest. If you have a bit of a belly or aren't "fit" it can bulge out. Make sure to get a size that is more comfortable than smaller. The dress will look better. For example, I fit into the 10, but around the mid section, the dress puffed out a lot. With a 12, it fit my figure much better.

I could wear a normal bra!

Size worn: 12R
Rented for: Wedding
Perfect fit! Light and airy for an outdoor summer wedding, perfect print for a garden party, and modest enough for a formal church ceremony. I am a true size 12 (36DDD) in the bust and 10-12 in my hips and this dress was so comfortable and fit like a glove. Definitely needs a heel if you are under 5'8", but if you don't mind picking up your skirt while dancing barefoot then you are good to go. Tons of compliments all night. I HIGHLY recommend!!!

I LOVED this dress! It was very comfortable, easy to wear, and flattering. The print and color were beautiful. I was able to wear a normal racer back bra. The dress was a little short when I wore it with 2" heels but not too noticeable. I had a little trouble with the zipper but nothing terrible.

Floral Fun!

Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this maxi dress to my college graduation and it looked beautiful! The floral print was absolutely gorgeous in person and I received many compliments on it. The only downside was that I did get a bit warm while wearing the dress, though (full disclosure) I was wearing a black graduation gown over it and did a fair amount of walking outdoors. Also, being only 5'4 and wearing flats, the dress was floor-length. Overall, very lovely dress, but maybe not the best choice for a hot and/or active day.
