Perfect Easter Sunday Dress

I got this dress as a backup for my engagement party, the size 10 was a little too big for me so I belted it and wore it to church on Easter Sunday. It's really a beautiful dress though, the lace at the top is amazing!

Pretty dress

I wore this for my bridesmaids lunch. I accessorized it with a chunky, modern gold necklace to make the dress a little less sweet, and I loved the resulting look. I got a lot of compliments and wished I didn't have to send the dress back! I'd say it runs TTS or a smidge big (which I find with most Shoshanna dresses). This was my favorite RTR dress yet.

Didn't get to wear it!

I'm fairly petite, but in almost all cases fit into a size 0. I'm 5'1, 110lbs and my measurements are 32/25/36 and this dress was a bit too baggy all around. It probably could have been taken in about an inch at the waist. Needless to say I unfortunately did not get the chance to wear this beautiful dress!

Perfect little white lace dress!

I wore this to my Bridal Shower and I absolutely loved it! The lace and form of the dress was so flattering and it fit like a glove! I usually don't like knee length dresses but this one honestly fit me perfect. I had a hard time deciding what shoes to wear with it but I wore blue suede shoes and I think my look was great!

It was a perfect dress for a bridal shower

It was a little bigger... good length. No need to wear a bra with this either... built in support.

I would say the sizing runs slightly large. However, I put a belt with it, and it worked out perfectly! Tons of compliments... Perfect bridal shower dress :-)

Gorgeous lace dress, photographs extremely well!

I was very happy with this dress, I rented it for Steeplechase (horse Race.) I got tons of compliments and it was very comfortable. I wish I had sized down for my back up dress because it was a touch loose in the waist.

Perfect rehearsal dinner dress

I rented this for my rehearsal dinner and loved it. I felt very bridey in it and received tons of compliments. I ordered the 4 & 6 and went with the 4 because the 6 was a little loose on top.

Pretty Dress, but runs Big!

This was a backup dress RTR sent me after I had problems with my first choice. I would have worn this dress to my shower as it was beautiful and had great detail, it was just too big on top. If you are top-heavy, this would be a good dress as well. Order a size down for your backup size!

LOVED this beautiful dress! I wore it for my bridal shower and received so many complements.

No accessories needed as this dress really does speak for itself. Absolutely stunning! If you are between sizes I would recommend sizing down.

Perfect for my "I Do BBQ"!

This dress was stunning! It hugged my curves in all the right places making me feel beautiful as well as daytime/family appropriate. I have never received so many compliments!! I opted for the 10 as it was looser in the hips and just a bit longer (more appropriate for all the gift opening in front of family!). This was my first experience with RTR and it will definitely not be my last! Thank you RTR for making me feel like a princess on my special day!

Beautiful dress, classic but sexy

Both the 8 & 10 fit well, but decided to size up due to the corset & having to attend a longer event. I went with comfort more than anything else and I was more than happy. Got tons of compliments and would rent this dress again.

I am usually between a 2 and 4, this was a bit on the smaller side.

Perfect for my rehearsal dinner!

This dress could not have been more perfect for my wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. The lace was gorgeous and the fit was beautiful. The only complaint I have is that the under layer of the dress was a little longer than the top layer of lace so you couldn't see the scallop lace on the bottom very well. I ordered two sizes and this happened on both of them. I also think this dress runs a little large, but most Shoshanna dresses do, so I would recommend sizing down for your backup size. If you're thinking about renting this dress, DO IT! You will not regret it!

LOVED IT

It fit like a true size 12, maybe even a little larger. The 10 may have even fit but it didn't arrive. There are 2 layers of lining inside but that made it feel nice and secure. I like the length, which was more like knee length on me instead of mid-thigh like the picture. Overall, I loved it! A great bridal shower dress!!!

Class act

This dress was perfect for a formal affair. I rented the 2 & 4; there wasn't a noticeable difference between the two. The dress exuded class; the back left something to be desired, as the cut in the back was not nearly as flattering as the front. However, I loved it overall and would definitely recommend it for any bridal affair.

Elegant, classic, chic!

I wore this dress for my bridal shower brunch in Chicago. The dress can also be worn for those looking to wear an elegant, but simple/classic dress for their actual wedding. I received many compliments on the dress, and some people (non-guests) thought that the dress was my actual wedding day dress. The dress was true to size and was SUPER comfortable. I wore the dress with a white bra, and for those ladies who can't wear strapless bras, you can absolutely wear this dress with a white bra that has straps. Although you will see the bra straps behind the lace, it actually looks like it is part of the dress. I have a very hourglass/Latina curvy shape, but I feel like the dress complimented my shape versus making me look straight up & down the way some dresses do. I paired the dress with the Come Fly with Me Veil and Silver Glitz Bangle Set. They were the perfect finishing touches to the outfit. I also wore the dress with silver chandelier earrings and rhinestone silver stilettos. All the accessories really help complete the outfit according to my own personal style (I love bling!). But, the dress can most certainly be accessorized with more basic pieces as well. Overall, the dress helped make my special day unique and truly made me feel like a beautiful bride-to-be!

Wedding Rehearsal Jackpot

This dress was extremely comfortable. Our wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner were both outside. The rehearsal was warm, and this dress was light weight enough to handle the heat. The dress does require a strapless bra. The chest was too tight for to wear the size 0, so I opted for the size 2 instead. I highly recommend this dress. It's delicate, timeless, and beautiful. I received so many compliments!

This was my first time RTR-ing, and everything worked out perfectly!

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and received many compliments on it. I paired it with the Mother of Pearl Bridal Belt which perfectly completed the look for which I was going! I felt the dress ran true to size and was even a little shorter than expected (I had to sit with caution while opening gifts!). Otherwise, this dress worked well for my big event!!

Elegant white lace dress that was comfortable

I usually wear a 4, which was a little big, but the 2fit nicely in the straps and back. The cut was great and very flattering and perfect for a summer cocktail party. The only thing I didn't like was that the lining kept on showing below the hemline -- however, my backup size didn't have that problem so I think it was just the particular dress.

LOVE! Perfect for wedding-related events!

This dress was perfect for my wedding rehearsal and dinner. I had originally planned to make this my "party" dress at the wedding reception, but when it arrived I realized that the straight skirt wasn't very conducive to dancing. I ordered this dress in a 2 & 4. The 2 fit very nicely, but the 4 had a little more breathing room, so I opted for that one, as we were serving italian food (carb-loading ;)) at the rehearsal dinner. I felt amazing in it, and received many compliments! I wore this dress with the Ben Amun love letter earrings and it was a great combination. Thank you Rent the Runway!

Favorite white RTR!

I rented this dress as a backup for my rehearsal dinner and so glad I did since the other dress didn't work out. It came in very good condition and the lace is beautiful. I got compliments all night and it's very comfortable. Would recommend this for showers, engagement parties and everything wedding in between.

Bridal Shower Perfection

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and it was absolutely perfect. The lace is stunning and it fit like a glove. As far as size: I am 5'7" and between 135 and 140lbs. I range between a 4 and a 6; a 4 typically fits everywhere but my shoulders and bust. My shoulders are broad; i think an 'athletic build' is an appropriate description. I went with the 6 and happy that was my choice. When sitting and opening gifts, there was a slight tug across my neck but I believe that was due to how I was sitting and my broad shoulders. Really, I ended up barely noticing it. Thanks RTR!!

Tons of compliments on this dress.

I wore this dress to my bridal shower and it was perfect. I ended up wearing the 6 because the 8 was a little damaged and while it fit, it was a little tight around my neck. I would definitely recommend this dress. Perfect length and very comfortable.

The dress was pretty, but a little worn

I liked the dress, it was pretty, but could tell it had been worn a lot. I ordered a 2 and my backup size was a 4, i ended up wearing the 4 because it ran small (in the chest area!). I didn't even need to wear a bra. Lots of compliments!

Too large, I had to return it

The dress is nice, but since I'm very petite size 0 looks very lose on me. I had to return it back. Over all dress is well done, but not for a short skinny girl like me.

Perfect dress for a Sunday afternoon bridal shower

I really enjoyed wearing this dress and got a ton of compliments. I wore it to my first bridal shower and it really made me feel like a bride - I loved the lace detailing and the fit was comfortable throughout the event - sitting, standing, even hugging. I'd say rent this dress :) It truly is gorgeous.

Perfect for my Rehearsal Dinner--felt beautiful and bridal

Great first experience with RTR. I ordered this dress in a 4 and 2, hoping desperately I could wear one of them for my Rehearsal Dinner (I had a backup if not...) The 4 fit like a glove--not too short, great cinching at the waist, and not too tight on my back or boobs. My skin is super sensitive but I hardly noticed the lace; the dress was very comfortable. My main issue with the dress, as others have mentioned, is that the slip came below the lace part of the dress, so I had to get creative with "pinning" it up. This happened on both of my sizes, but with my own tweaking, I got compliments all night long.

Felt like a supermodel

This dress was amazing! I wore it as a bridesmaids dress and really felt amazing all night. I got so many compliments. i was afraid it was going to be too short on me since I'm 5'10 and was wearing a size 2 with heels, but it wasn't at all. It was fine for dancing, no flashing!

The perfect dress for rehearsal dinner!

The dress is so intricate and detailed and absolutely stunning! Fit as described, I didn't even need to wear a strapless bra with it. It is a nice length, not too long, not too short. I got so many compliments all night long! Only thing is that the zipper was a little tough to zip up because it gets stuck on the lace, but I still able to zip it without any help, you just have to tug a little harder.

Absolutely perfect for my courthouse wedding ceremony. So happy with my choice!

This dress was amazing- even better than I expected it to be. Both sizes I ordered (4 & 6) fit very well and I actually wore them both, the 4 for the ceremony and the 6 out to dinner that night. I got so many compliments and felt like such a bride. I would recommend this dress to anyone looking for the perfect wedding dress to feel beautiful and elegant. It was both sexy and sophisticated - long enough almost to my knees and covered up top but sheer enough to feel pretty. I am 5'10, 133 pounds and fit great. Will definitely be renting from rent the runway again. The whole experience could not have gone any better!! Thanks rtr!!
