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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Everyone was very impressed wtih the beauty of the gown.
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
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.

Such a pretty dress and fit!
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.

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.

I loved this dress! The fabric was soft and flattering. I am pretty busty (DD+) so that is always a concern with dresses, but this one fit well and was flattering all the way down. Loved it!

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).

Felt beautiful and received many compliments.
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!
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.

Floral Fun!
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.

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 was able to fit into an 8...normally wear 10. The top is very fitted and you may need to size up if busty. Very lovely dress....my only complaint is the zipper. About half way up it would get stuck.

this dress was so comfortable and perfect for a rehearsal dinner on a boat cruise. I am a bit on the shorter side, so I wore with wedges and it was the perfect length. It would have been too long to wear with flat sandals. I received compliments all night!

LOVED the dress. I wore it for my best friend's bridal shower and I got so many compliments all day.
The fit was perfect and fit true to size. I'm usually a size S or 4 and I wore the 4. I wore flats with it and it was the perfect length. I could have worn wedges, but I think the flats just made it more appropriate for the daytime event. Loved the fabric, feel, and it has pockets. Beautiful color and look!

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!

flattering dress in a beautiful print
The dress ran true to size and was very flattering. I'm 5'8'' and had to wear flat sandals. I wore a convertible bra and criss-crossed the straps which worked perfectly. The purple liner in the dress was at least 1 inch longer than the dress in the front, so I had to pin it up so it wasn't hanging out. Overall I LOVED wearing this dress and wish I owned it!

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.

Where can I buy this dress?
So I had originally rented a size 10 and 8 but the 10 was returned damaged so I was able to chose another dress along with the size 8 in this style. I really wanted to wear this dress so I put on layers of shapewear and success! it was a little tight in my chest and I believe a size 10 would have been perfect. This dress hides your stomach without looking like a maternity dress. it was perfect for a spring wedding. I wore wedges and the length was still perfect. I did wear a black bolero because I hate my arms and since the dress was snug it caused some arm fat bulge. I sincerely love this dress and would buy it outright in a heartbeat. Thanks for a wonderful first experience!

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.

Dress was beautiful, but too casual for my event.
The first was right on point, just a teeny bit short for me at 5'7" with heels.

Great dress, beautiful colors!
The dress was very comfortable and light. I wore low, one inch heels with it which made the length perfect. I was expecting it to be longer, based off of other reviews. Great dress for a summer wedding!
