Beautiful color!
I rented this dress for a wedding. It was absolutely perfect! The color is very bright but perfect for a summer wedding. I received so many compliments on the dress and how good I looked. I did wear spanx bottoms to just help smooth out lines so you didn't see my underwear lines and you couldn't tell I was wearing them. I wore with nude heels! I would definitely rent again!

Great color and fun details
This was a fun dress to wear out on the town for my birthday date with hubby - the color is even more dynamic than it looks in the photos (almost flourescent). The flouncy sleeve details are lovely and just enough "girliness." You CAN wear a nude bra with this dress, but if the wind blows the ruffles in a particular direction, your straps will show a bit. Would definitely rent again!

Bright summer dress!
Really fun party dress for spring/summer. It's very vibrant and has an easy fit. Runs slightly large so definitely size up for backup if you're smaller on bottom! I liked having the room for my hips.

Fun and flattering
This is a great little dress. I loved the fluorescent orange (though it was good to have advance warning from other reviewers about the color, since I was expecting coral), and this is a perfect dress to rent because once you've been photographed in highlighter orange, you may not want to wear the dress again. The fit was really flattering and the neckline and flutter sleeves are so pretty. However, it's not an effortless dress for a few reasons. The first is that it was pretty short, especially when I sat down. The neckline is high and occasionally felt like it was choking me (certainly not a dealbreaker, but noticeable), and the bra snaps dug into my shoulders a bit. It was also a little too tight around the hips with a little too narrow of a hemline. I had to make sure to take smaller steps and be careful when bending over. The 4 gave me more room on bottom but also on top, which made it less flattering than the 2. Despite the few issues, I wore the dress for 12 hours and loved it (and got lots of compliments!).

It is much brighter than pictured but is still super cute. I wore it to a wedding and did glow a bit at the reception with the black lights, but it was still a hit! Very comfortable & fun. Received lots of compliments!

Really pretty but very bright!
I wore this dress for a rehearsal dinner. It's a beautiful dress but is much brighter in person than it looks on the website. Wouldn't recommend renting for a very formal affair unless you really want to stand out!

Loved the brightness!
I chose this dress for my birthday pool party. It was so bright and summery. I wore a 4 only because of a delivery issue that RTR fixed to the best of there ability. The 2 might have fit better and why I gave only 4 stars bc I lovvvved this dress. I highly recommend for a summer event!

Great dress for a rehearsal dinner, got lots of compliments, wish I could have kept it :)
The dress is more orange than it is coral, but pretty nonetheless. I wore the size 8 and it fit perfectly. Material pulled slightly when sitting down, but nothing a little readjusting couldn't fix. I think the 10 would have been too big.

Perfect for a Southern beach wedding!
I loved everything about this dress - the color is bright, but it's beautiful. It is incredible comfortable and flattering, and even at 5'10 it wasn't too short. Will definitely rent it again and would recommend highly for a beach wedding or fun party in the summer!

Perfect for an outdoor summer wedding.
Great color...not too bright. Was a little tight around the butt, so I chose the larger size. I have long legs and it was a great length.

LOVED the color! Great for a bridal shower on a beach venue!
The color was beautiful. Great for any special summer occasion. I received so many compliments on the color. The flare shoulder was a cute touch and I loved the way it shaped my body! It fell just perfectly on the leg. Having a tan with this dress really makes the color pop! Yay for summer colors!

bright bright bright
i received this dress as an emergency back up for a bridal shower. the other reviews are right - the color is NEON but i totally loved it, and everyone else at the shower seemed to, too! the only size i received was the 8 - it ended up being a little baggy on its own, so i added a braided gold belt. i usually size up because i find the rib area on dresses confining - the dress was still comfortable after eating/drinking. it does run longer - i'm 5'4" and it hit right above the knee. i skipped the heels and wore flats anyway. i was sad to send this one back.

Loved this color!
I was obsessed with the color of this dress when I took it out of the box! It is NEON. Weight of the dress made it perfect for an outdoor summer wedding. I wore it with tiny gold earrings and gold/nude shoes to an outdoor tent wedding. Originally thought I would wear a necklace with it but skipped the necklace because the color of the dress was a statement enough. I didn't find much difference between the fit of the 6 and 8. I actually liked the fit of the 6 better in the top and middle, but because the chiffon was slightly more fitted in the bottom than the 8, the material above it poofed out to look unflattering in the stomach. The 8 actually did the same thing. A 10 may have looked better in the legs, but wouldn't have fit me in the top. I actually really didn't notice a problem with the cut in person; I just noticed the "poofing" in pictures.

This was a gorgeous afternoon wedding on the first day of summer in Santa Barbara wine country.
The dress was gorgeous and fit great. The only (very small) issue was because I am short (5'4) with a short torso there was a slight bump in the back but friends said it wasn't noticeable unless I turned the top half of my body around in a specific way. It's very bright, but so beautiful and I've never received more compliments on a dress in my life.

Beautiful amazing and flattering dress. Dress is actually more of a fluorescent orangey/ pink color. Ruffles and pleating detail so I kept the hair and jewelry simple. In love with this dress. Will be renting this one again!

Worn for my bridal shower and got so many compliments
I went and picked this dress up at the showroom and initially I was really disappointed in the fit. I don't have big hips and it was SUPER tight in the hips. I ended up taking it anyway and hoping for the best. It was shorter than I anticipated as well, I'm 5'9" and it was like mid thigh and super short when I sat down (I had to cross my legs or I would flash someone). All of that being said, I felt fabulous in it other than when I was sitting and wore it the whole day. I got so many compliments on it during the shower and to dinner and out after the fact. I know others have said that it's really bright orange, but I loved that about it. I would recommend this dress to someone who is a bit shorter than I though since it is really short!

So Flattering
This is by far my favorite RTR dress I've rented. I've always heard that Shoshanna dresses flatter curvy girls, and I think I found my new favorite designer. I was nervous that the ruffles on the arms would make me look wide up top, but they were a cute, unique feature of the dress that ended up being very flattering. The length was perfect (I'm 5'7"). I have to agree with the other reviewers, even though the color doesn't look bright in pictures, it is neon! I wore it to a rehearsal dinner with gold jewelry and nude heels. I would definitely recommend this dress.

Fit was great, but I have come to expect that with Shoshanna dresses. The color was a bit more neon than I expected but overall it was a beautiful and fun dress. Perfect for a summer event.

Great for summer wedding.
Loved this dress! Wore for August wedding and received a lot of compliments. It is a lot brighter than in the photo but I loved it. I ended up going a size larger than I usually do for Shoshanna only because it is a bit more fitted in the bottom. I would totally rent this again!

Wonderful -- but BRIGHT
The dress was AMAZING. I have a short torso, so sometimes its hard to find dresses that hit me in the right place, but this fit perfectly. The ruffles were cute and classy, definitely not over the top. The ONLY slight problem I had was that the color is not at all like in the picture. In the picture it looks coral... it is actually NEON Orange. Luckily I was going to an afternoon summer wedding, so it was OK. But be careful if ordering this for an evening event.

Amazing color, very narrow in the hips
Amazingly beautiful color, even on pasty blondes! Unfortunately, if you have any sort of shape in the hips this dress is not for you. It runs very narrow and even if you try and go up a size, the dress only expands in the chest area, where it's not needed. Too bad as the color is wonderful.

Perfect, sunny summertime wedding!
The color is very bright but it was great for an end of the summer daytime wedding. I got a ton of compliments on the color. The length was perfect and it fit really well. The only part of my body that did not fit as well as I would have liked is in the hips, a bit snug. I would definitely rent this one again!

I rented this dress as a back up, but ended up wearing it for my rehearsal dinner. The bright neon color made me pop as the bride and the cut of the dress was incredibly flattering and made my waist look tiny. Highly recommend this dress!

Danced the night away!
This dress was great for an end of summer wedding. The fit was spot on - plenty of room up top (and I am an 32G) and nipped in perfectly at the waist. It was such a beautiful color too - reading others reviews I was expecting something really orange - but I think that the picture is pretty accurate. Would absolutely rent it again.

Rented this dress for an engagement party and received compliments all night on the color. It's right across the hips so ladies with a booty like me may want to invest in some spanks!
