"Where did you get your dress?"
This dress is a true beauty, the color is just perfect -- and who doesn't love a pretty little lacey number?! I am drawn to lace dresses, but this lace is different from others, it seems very well made on this dress. I loved the cut at the bottom of the dress and the sleeves were a nice change from strapless. I felt comfortable dancing the night away in this beauty. You will get complimented and people WILL ask you where you got this. I always love telling people about RTR, the customer service is incredible and the dresses are always clean and top of the line. I rented both the 4 and the 6, I decided to go with the 6 just for length, but I wish I would've worn the 4 because I feel like throughout the night the dress bunched up a little, but with eating and drinking and dancing, it was probably a good thing. :)

Fun party dress for an outdoor black tie event in the spring
It was a little tight across the shoulders (I'm pretty broad shouldered) but other than that fit great. Super comfortable for dancing and perfectly suited for a spring/summer outdoor formal event.

I received a lot of compliments and felt very confident in this dress!
This dress fit me perfectly! The color is much more purple than it appears online. I had to steam the lace around the color to get it to hold it's shape. It was obvious that the dress had been worn frequently because lace shows wear easily, but once it was on it was hardly noticeable. I wish I didn't have to return this dress!

Felt like a million bucks!
This dress was absolutely perfect. Rented for a wedding, which my boyfriend was standing in. Wanted to look put together, without being over the top. This dress was incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. I can't tell you how many compliments it got. I'm 34DD-DDD so it was a little tight across the bust. Ended up ditching my bra just after the ceremony to get a little more breathing room. Length was great. Long enough to still dance and sit comfortably. Pared with chandelier earrings and nude heels. I would wear this everyday. :)

Great dress!
I wore this dress for an outdoor wedding and it was perfect! I got both the four and the two. I went with the four because the cap sleeves were a bit tight on the two. Other than that both sizes fit perfectly.

Overall great dress in an awesome color. It's a little tight in the rib chest area. While I hardly ever go without a bra, I had to for this dress. But the bra liner made it so that you couldn't tell the difference.

This was my first time renting from RTR and I plan on renting again for my next wedding!!
This dress was a great color and it was perfect for a classy summer wedding. I have a petite body and it fit perfectly. Not too tight/not too lose. I highly recommend this dress for a summer wedding!

Loved this dress - the color and shape were perfect!
I really loved this dress and got so many compliments on it. The 6 fit, but was snug through my back so I went with the 8 to be more comfortable. I did notice that my bra straps showed a little bit, but to avoid wearing a strapless I just moved them when I felt like they were showing. Overall this dress was great and I loved the RTR experience!

Beautiful dress for a fun night in Las Vegas
I wore this to the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas. I wanted something classy for the event as it was for work and I was entertaining customers. I like that it is off the shoulders a bit and the lace overlay is beautiful. I am a regular size 8 and the 8 fit fine. I carry my extra weight in my tummy and this dress accommodated it nicely. This dress would be a good choice for a wedding as well.

Shoshanna comes through again!
I love Shoshanna dresses, and this one was no exception. I rented a 0 and a 2 and I wore the 0 because the 2 was very frayed and worn-in looking. I would say it was in bad enough shape it probably shouldn't be rented out anymore. The 0 was just fine, though. The dress is beautiful, comfortable, and short! So make a note if you're taller than 5' 6" - but I loved it!

We went to a fancy wedding right outside of NYC. This was the perfect dress for the occasion.
The dress arrived early and fit perfectly but I wasn't sure how I felt about the dress initially. The lace at the neckline of the dress appeared quite "worn". Without finding just the right jewelry to go with the dress I likely would not have worn the dress at all. I would rent from rent the runway again but I would likely try to steer clear of lace dresses. However paired with the right accessories the lace was not even noticeable. Great color! Recommend gold accessories and nude heels/clutch. Got many compliments. Some guy at the wedding told me I was second best dressed at the wedding..second to the bride :).

This dress was great. I had people asking me where I got it all night!
I ordered a 6 and an 8. The 6 fit everywhere but was much tighter in the chest so I went with the 8. Very comfortable and easy to move around in.

So pretty
Such a great dress! Wore to a rehearsal dinner party. Already thinking of when I might rent it again. it was quite fitted at the waist - but fit. I might have liked to try on a 2 too but only ordered the 0. The lace around the neck had a hard time laying flat and not tucking under, I fixed it with a little ironing. I thought it looked best with no necklace given the lacey neckline. LOVED having the pockets!

Perfect for an outdoor summer wedding!
I LOVED this dress! I wish I could have kept it! It fit perfect to size, was a beautiful purple/blue color, and was great for the outdoor wedding I attended. I paired this dress with a thick chunky necklace, matching earrings and nude heels. I got so many compliments all night and felt great! The pockets kind of poofed out, but that didn't really bother me. Overall a great dress that I would highly recommend!

Great dress overall.
Flattering through the chest and bodice. The cut worked with spanx to disguise some post-partum lumps. The top of the dress cut a little bit in the arms. Loved the length. Got lots of compliments.

This dress fit perfectly and looked amazing!
I found the size 4 to fit like a dream (see my specs, which are true, I promise). I also found the 6 to be wearable. I have long legs and a medium chest, so the 4 fit perfectly up top and showed a little leg. I could see it being tight in the chest and arms if you have a slightly bigger chest compared with your frame. I could see MAYBE a downside of the dress being that the lacy fraying on sleeves and bottom does have the look of being a little worn and clearly laundered repeatedly. But also, those are the kinds of details that won't photograph and that probably only you can see. I'm not fully behind calling it a downside though, because this dress was awesome. I wore with nude shoes and a nude bag. Careful about pairing with the recommended earrings - they were heavy and drooped off of my ears. Had to go with back-up earrings. I was having so much fun, I don't think I took a single picture in the dress that would help you evaluate for yourself. Sorry. If I find one from others, I'll post it.

To clarify, the overall size doesn't run small but the chest does. The 6 fit the rest of my body perfect, but I couldn't zip past the chest area. If you are busty, go up a size.

Perfect cocktail dress for a summer wedding!
I rented this dress for my friend's June wedding. Cocktail attire was required so I wanted something nicer than I could afford to purchase myself and this definitely fit the bill! It was fun and summer-y but still fancy enough to fit right in at the Harkness Eolia Mansion in CT. The sleeves felt a bit tight at times but that's just because my upper arms have lot a bit of their tone & I was not diligent enough to exercise more before the wedding! :) But it didn't even bother me and I was still able to dance the night away in comfort. The lining is great - the dress never once felt itchy. And it appeared new - the lace was worn or frayed at all.

Perfect dress for a summer wedding!
This was my first and by far my most favorite RTR dress! The color is much more vibrant in person....it was gorgeous and I felt beautiful in the dress. I've rented a few more Shoshanna dresses since this one and I tend to notice that they run tight in the chest. I wasn't able to wear a bra with this dress because of how tight it was in the chest/upper rib cage. If I sized up, it would have been to large in the waist. Regardless, I hope to rent this dress again someday. Beautiful!!

This dress was absolutely perfect for the wedding I attended. It fit like a glove and was very comfortable. The only thing was that I felt it was a bit short and had trouble dancing! Other than that--I LOVED it and would highly recommend it.

Rent this dress, you won't regret it!!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS DRESS!!! I want to own this dress! I got a ton of complements all night and it fit like it was made for me. The fabric is very forgiving and forms to your body on top with a fun flair to the bottom. I am usually between a 4/6 and both fit but wore the 6 because I needed the room for the girls to grow since I am a nursing mom. The husband loved it and we danced all night comfortable. The dress is a beautiful bright purple and I wore nude pumps and gold earrings and bracelets. The neckline is so pretty you don't need a necklace.

Great Customer Service
The day before this dress was scheduled to arrive, a RTR consultant contacted me and told me that the dress had been returned in bad shape and they weren't going to send it to me. The consultant was very helpful and we discussed all my options until we were able to find a dress that could replace it. I wish this dress had come, but the way they handled it was wonderful!

Gorgeous dress!
I ordered the 6 and the 8, and ended up wearing the 8. It was a more comfortable in the waist and slightly longer. Slightly loose on the straps, should have pinned them. Small potatoes though- this dress is fabulous. Wish I owned it! I had my first baby 6 months ago, and I'm not quite back to prebaby shape and size. This dress made me feel confident and sexy! Hooray! I loved wearing this dress- so gorgeous, feminine and ladylike. Lots of compliments! And pockets! Why don't more dresses have pockets. I paired it with emerald drop earrings I rented and a large green bracelet I already owned and nude shoes.
