Beautiful dress

This dress was beautiful I was disappointed I couldn't wear it! I ordered a 12 and I usually wear a 10 or 12 in dresses. Unfortunately this doesn't have much stretch of give to it. And it wouldn't zip over my bust. Size up if you have a big bust. Other wise this dress is so cute and flowy and I love the one shoulder look.

Didn't look right...didn't wear.

Had high hopes to wear this dress for an early summer outdoor party, but it just didn't work out. It didn't look right on me in the hips.

Felt great!

Just like everyone said, the pockets did slip out while wearing this dress. Also, the liner and the dress didn't line up, which is why I only gave it 4 stars. Had boning in the bust area and had plenty room in the hips, which was perfect since I wear a 36B and have rather large hips. Would rent this one again. Also, looked cute paired with a jean jacket, and platform wedges

Beautiful dress!

Comfortable fit and nice summer material. As others said, the pockets fell out a bit but it fit well otherwise - not a big issue.

Easy service, a dress that actually fit my large chest.

I rented this dress for my rehearsal dinner. I ordered the 10 and 12, and I ended up wearing the 12. It was a bit big and baggy in some areas, maybe looked a little less flattering than I had hoped, but it was still a cute print and fun dress for the occasion. I got several compliments. The 10 fit best in the skirt/hips and made things look less "puffy" but did not fit over my rather large chest, so I had to go with the 12. I belted it with a narrow silver belt and wore a sliver beaded wedge sandal. It was cute! Obviously not custom clothing, but worked well for my needs and was definitely a pretty print!

happy

This dress was a little big, but the 6 was a tiny bit too tight around my rib cage so I opted for the bigger size to be comfortable. Loved the dress and looks like the picture, the pockets were just so annoying! Everytime I moved they seemed to move too, but RtR sent double sided tape so I just taped them shut. Really enojoyed my experience and will def do it again!

I liked the color and material of this dress, however it fit tighter than expected.

The dress was very pretty and the pattern was different - I loved that it had pockets. I liked the dress a lot, however I got it intending to wear it to a rehearsal dinner, and it was a bit tighter on me through the hips than expected, which made it budge in the stomach area, and the pocket-lining pop out - so I ended up not wearing it. I would rent this dress again in a larger size for a night out, it felt a little tight and short for a rehearsal dinner.

A little snug

If I could give this dress 3.5 stars I would, but I'm feeling a little generous. I've always appreciated Shoshanna dresses for providing extra support and breathing room as I'm a D-cup. While I cannot complain about the support, this dress was a little snug in the chest. Maybe I'm spoiled. I rented this dress for a baby shower, and I felt appropriately dressed and comfortable (not overdressed or over the top). It has pockets, which you wouldn't expect but I certainly appreciated. I would recommend this dress. :^)

I got many compliments on the color and cut of the dress. It was perfect for Labor Day weekend - still a fun color and summery!

I wore this dress for my best friend's rehearsal dinner. I loved the color of the dress and the one shoulder. I ended up wearing the larger of the two sizes because my normal size was too short. (I am 5'10 and curvy, so I would suggest it if you are a bit leaner or shorter). The top was flattering and the dress was comfortable. My only caution is that the pockets were a bit of an issue - mine kept turning inside out, and it made my already curvy hips look a little bigger. But for someone with small hips, I would highly recommend this dress!

Beautiful dress for a wedding or date but not for busty chicks!

I really wanted to love this dress but unfortunately, it did not love my chest! I ordered this in the largest two sizes hoping that the 12 would be good for my chest but they did not fit with a bra. When I tried to go braless (which is not advisable for anyone over a C cup) my boobs sort of squished into a uniboob and it was not at all flattering. I definitely recommend this dress to those with smaller or average sized chests. or go a size up if you can. if you normally wear a 12, wear at your own risk. The dress is very pretty in person, I loved the pockets, and is appropriate for most casual occasions.

Nice Pattern, Strange Fit

I rented this dress as a primary dress for my cousins Baby Shower. The print is beautiful: great colors, very feminine... but the fit of the dress was definitely a miss for me. I usually wear a 4 or 6 and I ordered both the 6 and the 8 (based on my normal fit in some Shoshanna dresses) - both which were very small in the hips. The 6 might have worked if it didn't have pockets, but the fabric pulling even slightly made the pockets pop out. Several other reviewers wrote about the pockets and I found this to be true. On the top, the one shoulder neck came up very high and the fabric gathered at the waist was almost baggy. Unfortunately I don't have a picture because I didn't end up wearing it!

Cute, fun print!

I wore this dress to my tea party themed bridal shower. It fit the theme perfectly. I loved the pink pattern & got lots of compliments on it. I ordered a 6 with a 4 as my back up size. I ended up wearing the 4 because it fit better. My cousin is wearing a RTR dress too in the second picture.

Neither size fit, so I had to go with a backup dress from my closet!

The four and the two were both too small for me. Luckily I had packed another dress in my bag on a whim, and ended up wearing that to the wedding. Guess I needed a size up after all the fun I have been having over the summer. It was particularly harsh at the underarm area, and in the stomach area, due to the higher waist line.

I wore a different dress from my closet - this one was a no go.

I typically go between an 8 or a 10 in Shoshanna - this one did not fit. Would definitely order a larger size too!

Perfect dress for a summer event!

This dress was very pretty and comfortable. The material was light and I received a ton of compliments. I would 100% rent it again. I have a large bust and hips. This smaller size fit my waist and chest better but was too tight on my hips making the dress too short (and I'm only 5'3). For that reason, I ended up hearing the larger size. As others have mentioned, the pockets are an issue. The liner does come out and are not super flatter on someone with curves. I am a big fan of dresses with pockets but this dress should have been made without them. I would recommend someone with larger hips/butt to get a larger size as their backup.

Too tight, never wore

Honestly I wanted to like this dress. I thought the skirt would be full especially since I ordered up a size, but it was tight against my hips and thighs. Along with being a relatively short dress, that combo made me uncomfortable. The fabric was also strange feeling and clung to me. I'm just not a fan of tight and short.

Easy to dress up or dress down

This dress was super comfortable and so cute. I got the size 4 and 6 and went with the 6 because I couldn't even zip up the 4...I rented this dress for my friends rehearsal and I received many compliments on it throughout the day. I paired it with flats for comfort but you could easily dress this dress up and wear it to a wedding. My only complaint was that the pockets kept coming out so I had to keep tucking them in. I think that's an easy fix thought with some fashion tape or a safety pin. Would definitely recommend renting this dress!

Definitely runs small. I typically can wear a 4 or 6 in any dress. 8 was too small.

Runs small and clingy!

I expected this dress to be a heavier material. It was a liner with sheer overlay and fit really small. I usually wear a 6-8 and the 8 was small. I was really excited about this dress, but it didn't work at all.

Not worn, but will rent again!

I love this dress. I generally wear a 0 or 2, but the 2 was a bit snug in the bust. I wore another dress I rented, but will be back for this one in a 4.

Fun dress, not too formal, great for engagement photos

I got this as a backup and didn't wind up wearing it. It was very cute, and I loved the fabric. The fabric was like chiffon with a stretch underlayer, and boning in the top. I didn't wind up wearing it since it was too small in the bottom area. I usually wear a 2 in Shoshana, and am generally between a 2 and a 4. I have slightly wider hips than top, and the skirt on this dress was just too tight. I probably could have worn it, but the pockets gaped a bit due to the fit. I would rent it in a 4 though! The top of the 2 did fit well. So, if your a bit hip-py like me, size up.

Adorable, but this brand just doesn't fit me. :(

Rented this for a party and I loved it--this is the second attempt at a Shoshanna dress for me and I'm just either too busty or my rib cage is too large or both. Same fit issue with both dresses is very different styles.

Loved this dress! I wore it to a rehersal dinner for a summer wedding and it was the perfect choice. This would be such an amazing dress to wear to a spring or summer afternoon wedding. It was comfortable, easy to wear and I received tons of complements on it!

Very cute dress but not one of my favorite rentals. It looks more like something I could have bought somewhere. The fit is nice, but I didn't like how high the one shoulder cut across your body, I thought it would cut a little lower on your chest. However it was very cute and I got lots of compliments.

I loved this dress! I wore it to a summer wedding. It was comfortable and I didn't have to worry about it wrinkling when I sat down. The neckline cuts pretty hight and as in all Shoshanna dresses there is plenty of room in the bust. Overall I was extremely happy with this dress!

Perfect Derby Dress

I wore this dress to the Kentucky Derby. I loved it! It was a great light weight material. You can really dress this up, or wear it casual. I added a black belt to give myself a waist. The only issue is that the neck did cut pretty high. It was bothersome for about 10 mins and then I got use to the fit. It fit true to size. I highly recommend this dress.

I ordered this as my back up dress and while I didn't end up wearing it for the actual event, I loved it so much. It's a great dress. So flattering and the color is gorgeous in person. I will definitely keep it in my favorites to rent again as the primary dress. The material is super light too so great for summer.
