Flattering and comfortable with a pop of color.
Fits true to size. Dress is very comfortable and even has pockets. Great for an occasion where you need to look pretty and a bit conservative.

Loved the color and got so many compliments!
This dress was beautiful - the waist was a bit large in my usual size, so sized down. Since I went with the 6 it was a bit snug in the bust and arms, but not uncomfortable. I loved the pockets and color, and got SO many compliments. I gave the credit to RTR and I'm sure I convinced more than a few people to give it a try!

You look great in this dress! I'm thinking about wearing it to a wedding also- how was the color in person? Was it a dark lavender-ish purple like it looks on the model or did it lean more blue? Thanks!
JennaMay 1, 2013
@Lauren I tried this dress on at the RTR showroom and ordered it for a June wedding. I think its more on the blue spectrum than purple. it's really a gorgeous color and neckline.

All of the compliments I received on the dress and me in it!
Fit was okay, made my already non curvy body look even less curvy and the shoulder fit was kind of odd. Felt like it was falling off at points. Color is great but purple and not blue like the picture seems to be.

I wore this dress to a friend's wedding in South Carolina. It was comfortable and elegant. Great for dancing! I couldn't have been happier with the dress.

Beautiful color!
It is the most beautiful color, but it ran too large so I didn't wear it. I normally wear a size 4 and the size 4 was too big.

Beautiful and Comfortable!
I loved this dress and received a lot of compliments on it - even the bride said she loved it! I ordered the 10 and the 8 and they were very similar sized, I ended up going with the 8 because it fit a little better in the waist. The only complaint I would have on this dress is that I think the sleeves are supposed to be a little "off the shoulder" and they kept slipping down. Overall, I loved the dress, the color is beautiful and the length was slightly above the knee.

Stand out color. Could dress up or down.
Pros: Good fit and great color. Cons: The lace looked very worn especially on the edges. A little too short for my taste. (5'8")

This dress was so easy to wear and, not to mention, gorgeous!
I loved that the dress was conservative enough for a wedding at church, but fun and feminine enough that I felt great wearing it the entire time. In my opinion, length was perfect -- never had to worry about it being too short, just enough. Pockets are always a plus, too!

Beautiful bridal shower dress!
RTR literally saved my pre-wedding weekend festivities! I live in Arkansas but am originally from Ohio - so we are travelling back and forth to get married in OH. RTR was a flawless experience as I ordered them to have sent to OH so it saved me suitcase room on the plane! This Shoshanna dress was my favorite compared to the other dress I rented for my 2nd shower. However, it did run larger. I am normally a 4 in pant size and could have probably worn a 2 in this dress (I did not opt for the 2nd size though). The color is beautiful, more of a purple than blue. And who doesn't love a dress with pockets?

The service was incredible. I loved that they sent you an extra size
It was a beautiful dress, and I loved that there was a lot of room for your hips, but the shoulders were a little big, but with the tape they provided and a pin kept it up well. It's a little bit of a deeper purple than in the picture

The dress fit true to size and hits a little above the knee (looks much shorter on the model).

Spectacular rehearsal dinner alternative
I rented this for my destination wedding rehearsal dinner. I wanted something classic that wasn't white with a playful edge, and this fit the bill. I'm also always a sucker for a formal dress with pockets. I ended up wearing the 4 because the 6 was loose in the torso. I got compliments on it all night and would definitely consider buying the dress for events in the future. I wore it with emerald/turquoise earrings and nude pumps.

The color of the dress was gorgeous!
The dress was a little big on the bottom so I went with the 6. It was comfortable and great for an afternoon tented wedding. The color was great and I paired it with nude pumps and a nude clutch. Very comfortable without being frumpy.

Beautiful dress, a little worn out
I wore this dress for a slightly upscale beach wedding in June. The color was a deep purple (almost blue in certain lighting), with beautiful lace covering the entire dress. Lots of compliments throughout the night. I ordered a 0 and 2, after reading reviews that it runs a little small. Definitely does. I went with the 0, and I'm usually a 2. The 0 was even a little loose in some places (the arm area), but fit like a dream everywhere else. One downside: it's a little worse for wear. The lace was stringy on the edges of the dress if that makes sense, and I'm not sure there are many "rents" left before its retirement. That being said, no one seemed to really notice this issue but me (at least not until I pointed it out to friends) -- just a forewarning to fellow renters who may be looking for a totally pristine dress.

If you have long legs like me, finding the right dress length can be challenging. Shoshana dresses, however, are always the right length. This dress fit perfectly.

Renting with ease!
This was my first RTR experience and I have to say the whole process is very easy and enjoyable! I was so excited to get my dress. I have two weddings that are a week apart and I was able to rent two dresses for under $140...you can't go wrong! I was worried about the wear and tear on this dress and I was right. It is lacy so it was a lot more frayed around the edges than I would've liked. I was almost embarrassed to wear it but I just tucked in the extra frayed areas. Also, when sitting, the dress rides up A LOT. I went with the size 12 because I really didn't feel like wearing spanx and it fit almost perfectly. It was a little big on top so the sleeves kept falling down but it was ok. I'm bottom heavy and the dress fit my bottom perfectly. Also, the dress is really purple and NOT blue (it looks blue online). Overall, I am content but I wish it wasn't as frayed as it was.

Fit was dead on, I'm relatively small on top and larger on the bottom and this dress was perfect for my body type. Loved the color and how cute and stylish it was but still really comfy and easy to dance in! I got compliments all night long!!

Loved the color and the style!
I wore the smaller size that I ordered, which was my back-up; so the sizing was correct on the page and in the reviews. I still thought the two was a little big. I had to tape my bra in the back because the V is kind of deep to be wearing a regular bra. I had trouble with the zippers again, which is now the second dress that has had gummy/sticky zippers. I got a lot of compliments on the color, and might wear it again with some different accessories for a fall wedding. Overall, another great experience with RTR!

Fun Dress!
I wore this dress for a June wedding and had so much fun in it! I normally wear a size 10 so I ordered an 8 and a 10 based upon the suggestion to order down a size. While the 8 fit for the most part, it was too tight in my chest area. I am a D-cup so my larger chest size just didn't quite fit in the 8. The 10 fit great in the chest area but then I found it to be a little loose in the waist. The 10 still fit ok and I loved wearing the dress. It was comfortable and I loved the pockets! It is more of a bluish purple though, than a true purple. I was worried about the hot weather in the dress, but it was surprisingly not bad at all. I received several compliments on the dress and I would definitely recommend it, it's one of my favorite rentals to date!

Slightly tight in arms, and the pockets tended to bunch inside and cause a little bulge. But so comfortable and great color!

Classy
I loved wearing this dress. I rented it for my brother's wedding, and it was comfortable to move in all day and night, including a few hours of nonstop dancing. It was a bright, lovely purple, and the lace pattern is intricate and lovely. It looked as nice at the end of the night as it did when I first put it on.

Beautiful color
Color was beautiful, got lots of compliments. The lace was however frayed at top and bottom of the dress. The neckline on the model is beautiful, but lace just kept flopping over on mine. Will rent from RTR again, but will NOT rent a lace dress as I think it's just too delicate to stand up to so many cleanings.
