I was very please with the dress and that it fit true to size. I was afraid because this dress came the day before an event so I was very nervous especially with the fact that I didn't have a back up. The dress worked out perfect and I am happy so say I am definitely using RTR for all of my special events.

Absolutely fabulous! The photos don't do this dress justice. It fit like a glove and I never once had to pull it up. It stayed-put all night and I got a million compliments.

Great LBD!
This dress was great! As the other reviewer said, the photos don't do the dress justice. The silk fabric is very light and airy without looking too much like a summer dress. I ordered a 0 and a 2 and the 0 was too small in the chest area and I'm a C cup so if you're any bigger than that I would suggest the larger size. There wasn't much difference between sizes in the waist, hip and length.

The top fit nicely for a medium-sized bust. The dress definitely looked like a designer dress...great fabric, syle, and fit. I wore it to my Homecoming and got tons of compliments.

As other reviewers pointed out, this dress is silk and very flowy -- something that doesn't come across in the pictures too well. I got both the 2 and 4, but the 2 was still too big (I usually wear a 2 in dresses, 4 in pants, etc). I tried to pair it with a belt, but it didn't seem to work. That said, while I didn't wind up wearing the dress, I did really like the material and shape, it just didn't work for me so.

For the first time, I had to return my RTR purchase without being able to wear it. The dress is pretty, but it's relatively boxy and un-flattering on the lower half. I am usually an 8, but I ordered the 8 & 10. Both were too big and simply did not look good. It's my first RTR that I can't recommend.

I was totally surprised by how big this dress runs. I am usually an 8, read the reviews and ordered a 6 as well...and the 6 was still too big! I am a little small in the chest area so that may have been the problem, but I have never worn a size 4 and I think I would have to to wear this dress. I was bummed that I couldn't wear it because it is a gorgeous, high quality dress.

I usually wear an 8 or 10, but since I own another Shoshanna dress in a size 8 (and it's a little big) I decided to go with size 8 and size 6 back-up. Glad I did, because the 6 fit a lot better -- If I had a bigger bust (I'm 34 D) I think the 8 would have been perfect, it was just falling down a bit. Wore this to an outdoor October wedding and it was perfect. The only drawback was that in the particular dress I had, the boning had come out of the seams and was poking me in the ribs all night. I actually still have red marks from that. Hopefully that's an isolated issue and has been fixed.

The dress definitely ran larger and was not flattering at all. It is a very good idea I only ordered this as a backup dress.

Way too big
I usually wear a 0, so according to the size and fit overview I figured it would fit me perfectly. However, it was so big and boxy that it fell off and I couldn't wear it. Disappointing.

Love! Cute and comfortable.
There is a built in corset that makes sure you do not have to pull up the dress. Pockets are nice and don't add bulk. Went for smaller size. It runs a bit large. Cute with ponytail and red lips!

simple and flattering, looks great punched up with some statement jewelry.
This dress fit well, but I wouldn't consider the fabric "jacquard." It is a fairly thin silk with a little bit of a pattern pressed into it but definitely nothing noticeable, which I was a little disappointed about because I was hoping for a thick jacquard texture. But overall the fit was true to size, I belted it to emphasize the waist and add color.

This was the perfect combination of classy and fun for me! Great for my formal!
What a great dress! Wore it to a formal and got lots of compliments. Classy and elegant but short enough to still be fun (even though it was almost too short). I'm 5'4 and usually wear a 2 but it was too big but the 0 fit perfectly. Loved this dress-- perfect for any formal event.

Sadly, this dress did not work out.
I love Shoshanna dresses! They fit me perfect! I ordered this dress for a wedding. It arrived a bit worn,(boning exposed and color rubbed off the zipper) and I was disappointed. I called RTR, and they immediately shipped another dress that was perfect. It arrived the next morning! Now that's service!!!!! I love RTR!!!!!!!

Loved this dress! Fit like a glove and super comfortable
I ordered a 6 and an 8, and both fit, but I felt more comfortable in the bigger size (I didn't want my chest to get smushed). The pockets are an awesome touch!

Great service.
Received this dress hours before an event, and unfortunately, I was only able to receive one size. It was too big, mostly in the bust :-( so I had to go with something else. Great service, though, and I definitely will be using RTR again.

The Perfect LBD
I rented this for my birthday in Vegas, and it was perfect for the occasion. It was comfortable and stylish and best of all it had pockets. The length is a little short, but becuase of the shape of the skirt, it stayed in place all night. It was comfortable for dancing, although it did periodically shift to the right and had to be adjusted. But overall, great pick.

This dress got me so many compliments!
I have a bigger chest, so I was stuck between the 6 and the 8. I ended up choosing the 6 because I wouldn't have to worry about it falling down since it was a formal event. I was a bit squeezed and it had to adjust because it would twist to one side throughout the night. Super comfortable and the pockets were really convenient!

this dress was really pretty on, but a little tight in the bust. i ended up sizing up to the 10. the only other issue was the rental was pretty worn & ripped on the inside. otherwise it's a great dress that i would rent again!

Superb customer service!
I mistakenly ordered only one size (2) that arrived the day before my event (a wedding in NYC). The two didn't fit and I called RTR at 5pm on a Friday in a panic. Their customer service is excellent, and a size 4 was delivered to the hotel where the wedding was held the day of the event. I picked up the dress when I checked in and it was perfect! Comfortable dress with convenient pockets. I was able to wear it without a bra and felt comfortable throughout the night. It paired well with the Slate and Willow, Ladies Who Lunch Necklace. Another successful RTR purchase!

Simple but beautiful
I wore this dress for my Law School graduation. I have a curvy athletic build, and this dress softened me and was very comfortable. I do not have a very big chest however, and the chest area was a little loose. Other than that, it was perfect.

Law School Formal
For some reason, this dress in a size 0 was huge in the bust but SUPER short. I am only five feet tall, yet the dress was so much shorter than the other user pictures that it was nearly indecent - I could not sit down! The size 2 seemed longer, but was way too large. I think that maybe the size 0 is cut incorrectly? I will say, however, that the staff of RTR are simply wonderful. They not only shipped a panicked me a new dress overnight, but were incredibly helpful. They also promptly refunded an ordering error that I made. Bottom line: RTR is incredible, this dress in a size 0 is not.

So classy and comfortable!!
I wore this dress for my last sorority formal and I was looking for a classic and chic look - I definitely found it! I was worried about the fit because I have wider hips for my frame (32 inch bust, 26 inch waist, 39 inch hips) but they are right when they say there's room for curvy hips! The length was perfect for me and I'm an average height. The bust was a tiny bit too big but not big enough to where I could have gone done a size. Nothing a little dress tape couldn't fix! Plus the built-in belt thing for your waist made a big difference! This dress was so comfortable and the shape was so flattering for my figure. The fabric is gorgeous and I received so many compliments all throughout the night! I love it so much that I don't want to return it!!

Great party dress! I rented this for a bachelorette party and it was great. The pockets were nice to have all night. The back of the dress isn't the most flattering as I feel it accentuates love handles but I did get quite a few compliments on the dress!

I am typically a 6 or an 8 and had to use fabric tape to keep the 6 in place. Great dress and very flattering but its a larger fit.
