Size worn: 8
Rented for: Wedding
I usually range from a size 10-12 based on how dresses hit in the hip area. This dress ran large on top so I am GLAD I read the reviews and ordered a size down! Ended up wearing an 8 and it fit great! Absolutely LOVED the dress (especially because it had pockets!!). Wore for an outdoor wedding and received MANY compliments! :) Bright colors and lovely style!

Rented for a country music festival, went great with cowboy boots! Pockets were a must, very deep and inconspicuously held everything I needed. It was a little large around the bust/back. I should have chosen a smaller size. I had to put a couple pins to hold it up. Other then that, loved it

Cute, strapless dress, perfect for outdoor spring/summer events!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I rented this dress to go to my brother's Spring Graduation. I think this is the perfect dress for semi-formal outdoor events! It was really cute on, but it did get a little bit uncomfortable after a few hours. The top has this weird elastic belt thing you strap yourself into before you zip it up. It fit me okay, but if you are between sizes it might make the dress pull oddly. There is also a LOT of boning in the bodice. It started to dig in and leave marks along my bust throughout the day. Overall, the dress was worth the small amounts of pain incurred, and I enjoyed wearing it!

Beautiful, but not the most comfortable dress I've rented.

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Wedding
The boning in the bodice poked through and was stabbing and irritating my skin most of the night. The dress has pockets which is a total game changer. I didn't need to wear a bra with it.

Adorable dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
The dress is super cute, flattering, and stays up. The only negatives are the boning pokes into your stomach when sitting so gets quite uncomfortable when sitting too long. Also because of the way the lining latches in the back (to help keep it up), it is nearly impossible to put on yourself--you need an assistant. All that said, it looks so good on, I would rent it again without hesitation.

Bright and Flattering!

Rented for: Party
Absolutely loved this dress for a Kentucky Derby party. It's bright and the A-line rule makes your waist look oh-so-tiny. As others mention, the bust is a little large, even for this 32D girl. But it didn't gap noticeably. It was about as short as I would go for a short girl, so tall girls beware!

I usually wear a 4 and I was hesitant to even get the 2 as my second size but after reading the reviews I got a 4 and 2. The 4 was too big in the chest area and the 2 fit perfect. I'm a 34B. I got so many compliments on this dress and I love that it had pockets! Fun, flirty dress!

This was a perfect date night dress. It's comfortable, flattering, and has pockets! I enjoyed it. It wasn't too long or too short on me (I'm 5'5") and it was just an easy breezy well-fitting dress of nice quality for a perfect night out with my honey.

This bright and lightweight dress was perfect for an outdoor southern wedding in May.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was super comfortable and I loved the pockets. It was a great length for any type of party. Not too short! It was a super flattering dress as well. I wish I had the 2 instead of the 4 because I'm small chested and needed to wear a bra to keep this dress up while dancing. It just was slightly big in the top area which you don't want in a strapless dress. I would recommend going a size down if you have a small chest so it fits snuggly. Overall I loved wearing the dress and would wear it again! Great summer dress!

Great experience, will definitely rent again.

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Wedding
I usually wear a size 6/8 but after reading all the "runs big" reviews on this dress I went for a size 6 with a 4 for my extra size. The 6 fit perfectly and I believe it was true to size. If I had even tried on the 4 I wouldn't have been able to zip it. I am curvy/hourglass shape. This dress has great boning/structure which helps it to stay up, great if you get annoyed always pulling up your strapless dress. I found it to be comfortable even with the boning and was able to wear it and dance all night at a wedding reception. High quality fabric and structure for sure. Overall I really loved wearing it.

I can see how the boning bothered the other girls who have reviewed this, but since I was up on my feet all night it didn't really affect me. I got tons of compliments on this dress and it made my boobs look AWESOME. It was perfect for a wedding because it didn't upstage the bride, but it still made me stand out from the other guests

I absolutely loved the pockets on this dress!! I wore this for a "after-wedding" party for guests that couldn't make the trip to our actually wedding. The dress was super comfortable, light and I didn't want to return it. The pops of color and the pockets were so great! I would definitely rent this dress again for the summer.

Cute dress, so-so fit.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to my friend's wedding. Got both the 10 and 12 – the 10 fit much better, but the boning was digging into my waist. Ended up going with the 12 for comfort, but it wasn't very supportive and ended up making me look even bustier than I am. Kind of unfortunate, not sure I'll rent a Shoshanna strapless again.

It ran a little large- I'm usually a 2 and I wore the 0. However, it was a little tight in the waist, but still manageable. I received lots of compliments on this dress! Wasn't the most comfortable dress I've ever worn, but I still able to dance the night away :-)

Fun fabulous birthday dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was my free birthday dress as a PRO and I enjoyed it immensely! I was able to get the necklace as well with my $50 credit. This is the first RTR dress where I didn't fit the size 6 as well and so I went up to the 8. Both dresses were hard to zip, and there is a hook on the inside of the dress that I would have never been able to do up without help. I could have worn it without a bra, or with a simple strapless one, but since other renters have complained about the dress' boning sticking in their ribcage, I opted for a strapless, backless bra (the kind with boning in the front) This way, I had some reinforcement. I didn't have a problem sitting down the way others had. Loved the print, perfect for a birthday party at an outdoor lounge. :) My only regret is there was only one photo taken.

I wore this to wine tasting for my bachelorette. I usually wear a 4, but the 2 fit me perfectly. The structure in the top of the dress hugs your chest well, and the fit and flare of the skirt is flattering, plus the dress has pockets! The only time I was uncomfortable in the dress was when I was sitting in the car for a while, then the bodice got a bit tight. But that corset wiring in there really sucks you in! Loved this dress, got so many compliments. I wish I could buy it!

I originally rented this dress for a rehearsal dinner but it was too big and the smaller size didn't make it in time. Luckily I had a back-up for the rehearsal and RTR allowed me to extend my rental so that I could wear the dress for my birthday dinner. I really liked this dress but the boning of the bodice would ride up when I sat down. This was a minor nuisance. I usually wear a 4 but that was way too big, the size 2 fit fine. Overall this was a fun, flirty dress.

So colorful and fun- exactly what I wanted for an outdoor wedding.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The colors are vibrant and bold, but that worked for me as I was wearing this to an Indian outdoor wedding. The fit was great- I have a smaller bust so the zero fit perfectly. I love that the dress has boning because that helped the top stay up the whole night. Except when dancing with my arms raised- then I had to adjust a bit but otherwise I didn't have to pull up the dress like I normally would with tube tops. The skirt is full, maybe a little fuller than I would have wanted because I'm so short but it was still really cute. And it had pockets. Who doesn't love pockets?! I wouldn't hesitate to rent this one again for another outdoor event.

Beautiful, stylish, great fit!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress fits very true to size. The fabric is a bit stretchy and it's comfortable. The fabric is a thicker cotton so maybe not best for humid areas, but perfect for summer in the NE (we were at a wedding in the finger lakes in central NY). I'm short (5'3") and it hit just above my knees. The only con is that bc I usually need a petite, the torso on this dress was a bit long and the boning started to poke into my ribs in a very uncomfortable way. I'm typically a size 10. The 10 fit great. I have a larger chest and didn't need a bra at all--it was very supportive. The skirt is full and forgiving. The pockets are fun. Overall, loved this dress. It's fun and colorful.

Wore this to a Derby Party and was pleased with the overall look. It went well with a navy blazer as the day was cooler. The dress does run big, especially in the bust area. If I had it to order again, I would be sure to order the 2. I'm usually a 2 or a 4; unfortunately, this must have been a popular Derby Dress as the 2 wasn't available for that particular weekend.

Fit was true to size - most of my clothes are a size 6 (4 or 8 on occasion depending on the store). Dress was very comfortable and was perfect for the outdoor barn wedding I attended. The material is a little heavier than I expected it to be which made it a bit warm to wear, but otherwise it was a great dress and perfect fit. It also has pockets which I loved!

First, I have to admit that this dress is not my usual style. However, I needed a pink dress for the Kentucky Oaks race, and this one had great reviews. I was VERY happy with this rental. It was flirty and fun without being too childish. It was also very comfortable and supportive in the right spots. I am a little top-heavy, so I was worried the dress might accentuate that too much. But the fit/shape of this dress was beautiful. I would definitely rent this designer again! I did feel that it ran a little larger, but not by too much.

Wore this dress to a casual outdoor picnic-type wedding. Worried that I would feel overdressed, but it's so bright and summer that it worked well. I also think it could work for more formal events. The fit was just a little loose in the waist area, but comfortable enough to wear. Did not need to wear a bra. Really beautiful fabric and pattern.

The size 4 was tight around my waist ( I gave birth 2 and a half months ago) so I ended up wearing the size 6. Dress is very pretty but it will look better on a super skinny person. Not bad for my first rental !!
