I could wear a normal bra!
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!!!

Beautiful print and color!
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.

Great dress that I was able to dress down a little for a baby shower. Color is phenomenal!
Fit was very true to size. The dress was also just perfect in length to wear with casual wedge sandals. I got lots of compliments from other attendees at the baby shower I went to.

Great dress for a relaxed rehearsal dinner!
I can't really speak to the fit of the dress. I was 11 weeks pregnant and trying to conceal for one more week. Nothing is fitting me quite like it used to. I usually wear a size 6-8. This dress was perfect and concealed great! It was so comfy and I had tons of compliments. Thanks RTR for another great rental!

Perfect for a baby bump
I really loved wearing this dress, especially since I'm in the awkward stage of pregnancy where clothes don't quite fit. I ordered a size higher than I normally wear because I'm growing in my chest and waist. The dress allowed me to where a regular bra and even had the snaps to keep the straps from showing. The waist line hit just above my bump and the dress flowed perfectly. I was between 16/17 weeks here. So I would have RTR add this to their bump friendly list. It was perfect for a fancy November day wedding.

Beyond gorgeous for a formal outdoor wedding
Loved loved loved this dress. The pattern is fun while still being elegant. This was perfect for a more formal outdoor wedding. At 5'7" the 2R was fairly short on me but worked well with flats.

Very comfortable
I wore this dress for a June wedding in Wisconsin. It was a tad tight in the chest, but overall very comfortable! I was hoping to wear a 2R to wear heels, but flat sandals with the 2P worked out just fine! I received lots of compliments on this dress!

Love this dress but disappointed.
I rented this dress 2 years ago in a size 6 before I had my second baby. I fell in love with it. This time I rented a size 8 because the 6 wasn't available. It was a little big around the arms and waist. I think it runs true to size and wish I had gotten the 6. The other reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the hem of the slip was about 1.5 inches longer than the dress hem! It looked so busted but I didn't have a backup and had to wear it. It seemed like someone hemmed the dress but not the slip. Other than that, the dress is beautiful.

Beautiful dress for a rehearsal dinner
This dress was beautiful and I received so many compliments throughout the evening! The only issue I had which I was able to fix with a few bobby pins, was that the inside slip was longer than the outside layer of the dress. Otherwise, it was great!

very long maxi
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.

Pretty dress
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.

this dress is soooooo long
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.

Comfortable, fun, perfect for a spring wedding!
This dress was fantastic. Super comfortable and great to move around in. I am usually a size 4-6 -- I ended up wearing my size 4 backup. It was a more flattering overall fit as the 6 seemed to flair out around the hips and make me look wider. I am 5'8" and wore flats. The bottom of the dress skimmed the top of my shoes, but would have liked it to be just a bit longer -- would consider the long in the future. Overall, HIGHLY recommend this dress!

I wore this for a mountain wedding.
I ended up sizing down. The 4R in this dress fit well, but you could see the lining (maybe it was just that particular dress). The 2P was not that much smaller in the waist, but the length hit the top of my feet, so I could only wear flat sandals. I wish the 2R had been in stock so I could have worn heels! I accessorized with a turquoise clutch, turquoise necklace, cream sandals and cream colored wrap.

A sweet chiffon maxi!
I rented this dress to wear for Mother's Day. It's a very easy, simple dress. You can wear it with regular undergarments, which is a huge plus! Another plus is that you don't need to wear much else with it, because it's beautiful on its own. I am regularly a size 2 and wanted to wear it with flats, so I ordered the 0P since I usually need to size down. The 0 was ever so slightly big, but the length was perfect for my barely 5'2" frame. Caution: The bottom of this dress is Extremely see through! Be sure to wear a slip underneath to avoid everyone seeing your underwear when the sunlight shines the back.

The bust fit perfectly, which I worry about sometimes with a 36DD. The waist was a bit big for me, but not noticeably. I got tons of compliments and it was really comfortable!

Great for a beach wedding, very comfortable
This was a little loose-fitting all around since the petite wasn't available in my size, I suspect the 10P or 8R would have fit better but even so it was perfect for the event and I received many compliments! Doesn't need much jewelry, I wore it with sandals on the beach and low heels at the reception.

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.

Wore this dress to a casual summer wedding
The dress is beautiful in person, although the reason I picked this dress is because it is supposed to be designed for women with larger chests. Unfortunately, this did not fit the bill. The high neckline and material had no give in the chest area and in order to make it fit I couldn't even wear a bra, so I basically looked like uni-boob all night. It's really unfortunate though, because the print in person is lovely.

Photographs beautifully!
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!

This dress was the perfect dress for a spring wedding!
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.

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

Got so many compliments on this dress!
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!
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.

Perfection.
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.
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!!
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 dress was so very comfortable.
It was a little bit long for my 5'7" height. Shoes were maybe another inch. It fit perfectly in the bodice. The dress made me feel elegant but not overdressed.
