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.

Being able to wear amazing designer dresses to all my weddings this summer!
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!

Wore this dress to a summer party and was very comfortable. Color is very pretty. The top of the dress fits well and is very flattering, while the bottom has a more relaxed fit. I always wear a 4 in Shoshanna and the 4 in this dress fit perfectly.

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!

Wearing a great designer dress with my sister at her wedding rehearsal!
Like the other reviewers, I also loved this dress! The colors and fit are great. I wore it to my sister's rehearsal dinner and it was perfect. It's very flattering for pear-shaped girls. And I love that it has pockets!

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!

Too tight in the neck
Couldn't wear because it cuts too high in the neck, uncomfortable and unflattering.

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.

Another Shoshanna to love!
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.

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!

The bright color was perfect for the summer wedding in Newport.
It light weight, and stretchy so you could move in it.

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.

I loved it! I thought the cinch at the waist was very flattering.
I have a bigger bust and thought that it was also minimizing on top. Very cute pattern and good fabric.

Perfect dress for summer!
I love Shoshanna and almost always wear a size 6 so this fit perfectly. I wore it to a bridesmaid luncheon for my sisters wedding and everyone loved the dress. I thought it was going to be pink, but its more on the purpleish side. Great dress! Would definitely rent again.

Cute flirty dress in a flattery shape for curvy gals.
I normally wear a 6 but consistently wear an 8 in shoshana. The linings of the pocket showed a bit. You could probably tape these down with Hollywood tape. Cute color and nice fabric.

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!

Lovely dress. I wore it to a bridal shower.
This dress has elastic at the waist which makes for a better fit. The dress is lined and has good coverage in the chest area. I did not need bra.

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.

Didn't end up wearing this one
I got this dress as a second option and didn't end up wearing it because I loved my first option. I would have wanted to wear spanx under this one, there wasn't much structure to the dress and it fit kind of oddly in the middle. It's a great color and I love the pattern- I would give this dress a second chance.

Beautiful and flattering!
I rented this dress for a wedding. I usually wear a size 8 and only ordered an 8 (didn't get a back up size). Luckily, the 8 fit but it was a close call. I needed help zipping in because the chest is tight. Once zipped, it was fine and the dress felt totally comfortable. The colors are beautiful in person - so bright. The design is very flattering and I felt comfortable sitting and dancing all night. I loved this dress and wished I owned it!

Comfy dress, but nothing special
This dress was comfortable, I was between sizes here and went with the larger size I ordered (12). It was big up top (but I have a small chest) and the fabric wasn't super flattering. The neckline cut really high. All in all, nothing great, but not horrible either.

Dress fit great and was easy to wear. Only issue I had were that the pockets would bunch up and the lining would stick out. Obviously not a deal breaker. I wore this for my wedding shower in April.

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!

The top fit perfectly, but the bottom was not so good. It was very clingy and the pockets kept poking out. It was a very pretty dress but I wouldn't wear it again.

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.
