Very versatile and tons of compliments...
This was a cute dress to wear everyday. I wore it to walk around and shop the streets of Rome. I received tons of compliments. I chose to make this more casual with flat sandals and sweater around my shoulders incase I decided to visit churches. I could easily cover up. The fit was perfect, not snug at all. I did find myself pulling it up higher on my chest because of modesty and for respect of the churches I visited. However, for dinner I changed into heels and pulled it down, loss the sweater and I was ready. I received even more compliments then!

Comfortable, fun dress.
Not a very flattering photo, but this dress fit very well, was super comfortable, and has pockets (for you pocket lovers). Great for a summer event.

Comfortable, stylish graduation dress!
I wore this dress for my college graduation. It was a hit! It was dressy enough, yet casual enough for a backyard reception afterwards. I would highly recommend!

This dress is wonderful for making that waist look tiny.
I'm a coke bottle figure and this dress did perfection for me. The length is good, not too short and there is a built in almost corset on the inside you can hook to keep it from slipping as well. This is very figure flattering on an hour glass figure for sure.

I love Shoshanna dresses for weddings!
I typically reserve this designer for weddings. I'm always a fan of the designs, which are unique and fun, and the fit is always perfect for my body type. I'm more of a fan of the red with white detail and orange and blue dresses Shoshanna does, but wanted to give this design a try. Wasn't my favorite, but worked for the occasion.

Perfect dress for a preppy event
I wore this dress for a croquet match/preppy event. It was perfect for this event and was very comfortable. It was bright but the fit was just alright. . . . Nothing too special.

Fun dress!
The dress was fun and colors were vibrant for a wedding rehearsal outdoors in Charlotte, NC in the summer. The only thing that I didn't like about the dress was that it was a little tight in the chest/rib cage area so it made my already small chest look pretty much non-existent. I wasn't able to wear a bra since it already flattened me. With that being said, I'd definitely wear it again but I'd size up next time.

Meh.
I rented this as my backup for a spring wedding. I didn't wind up wearing it--I thought something was off about it. The skirt flares out a lot so it made me look a lot hippier than I'd like. I have a shorter torso and am short in general, so maybe this will work better for other body types. Super cute pattern though!

Great fit!
This was a dress they overnighted to me after my first dress didn't work out. I was worried because there weren't a lot of options, but it ended up working out great! Both of the sizes fit me, but I wore the 6 because I felt it "held me in" better. It was slightly tight around the rib cage and I did have to pull it up quite a bit, but it looked super cute! I would definitely rent again!

Fun Summer Wedding
I absolutely love anything Shoshanna! And this dress did not fail to impress. I love the fit and flow of this dress…and the pockets, oh my! The only down side, was some of the boning in the bodice was poking through.

Super cute, easy to wear
This dress is super cute and great for a daytime wedding. It was a little large on me and unfortunately, it appeared to be heavily used. The wire boning over the bust broke through the top shortly after putting it on, resulting in the wire sticking out the top the rest of the day which I had to hide with my scarf. Fortunately, RTR has excellent customer service and refunded me for the dress. I like the dress a lot- hopefully they get some new ones in stock in better condition!

Great colors!
This was a really fun way to avoid a solid color dress--the pattern isn't too loud but still stands out. Pretty standard sweetheart neckline fit. I really liked it! My friend asked for everyone to be colorful and this fit the bill!

I rented this dress for a beach vacation with my family. It runs large in the top so I wouldn't recommend for small busted women. Overall it was a cute dress!

Fun Not-Too-Fancy Dress!
I rented this dress for an afternoon wine festival. It was very comfy (loved the pockets!) and fit well. It was slightly chilly as I'm in northern IL, so I wore a jean jacket over the dress, but it still looked super cute! Loved the colors too. This is my 2nd Shoshanna brand dress rented, and I think either she tends to run her dresses large or else my body type really works for her dresses because in both cases, the 4 fit me perfectly and I'm usually around a size 6.

So comfortable! Bonus that it had pockets, and a built bra basically.
I wore this to our racetrack for a beer and wine tasting. The day was a little colder than expected, so I wore a cardigan with it. I was standing most of the time so it did not poke or prod against my skin at all. I received some nice compliments.

Perfect dress for the 80s themed party I attended!
I bought this dress to wear to an 80's themed murder mystery party, it was a great fit and worked perfect for the theme. Even though the dress was strapless it had a built in bra which was nice. It runs true to size and I didn't have to worry much about the dress falling down or feeling loose.

Pockets make this a perfect summer dress!
I'm usually between a 6 and an 8 in dresses on rtr but the 6 was a little loose. The boning in the dress made it so I did not have to worry about it falling down all night. After sitting through dinner the bottom ends of the boning were starting to dig into my sides. Overall great dress and got tons of compliments all night!

Cute dress, liked the corset.
I rented this dress for a wedding and day trip. It was so cute! I'm a size 4 (or 27/28 waist) in pants, but have a wide rib cage and large chest. This fit my chest, without a bra--although there was slightly more material than I needed from the waist down. I also couldn't attach the interior bra without being uncomfortable--but the corset held me in. A tall pair of heels evened me out. Super comfy and cute--I got a lot of compliments!

I attended a beautiful wedding near the Delaware River
I really liked this dress! I am normally a size 4 ish with a bigger bust and I needed to size down to a 2. The bust part didnt feel secure so I used fashion tape to hold it up. I did not need a bra, Loved the pockets and the comfortable fabric. It was perfect for a summer wedding!

Such a fun dress with vibrant colors!
I loved the bright colors in this dress, I felt like I really popped! The pockets and the flow of the dress was great as well. The ribs in this dress were very uncomfortable as the evening went on. I also had to keep pulling the lining down underneath so it didn't show on top. The only other thing I didn't love about this dress was that I felt I did have to keep Pulling it up. I really was hoping with a more expensive dress it would stay up but unfortunately it didn't. I still did love the dress and I did feel good in it.

Gorgeous summer dress with flattering cut and fun, flirty pockets!
I wore this dress for my boyfriend's redeployment ceremony coming home from Iraq and could not have been happier with it! Fit was true to size- I wore the 2 and was very happy with the fit and length. My favorite part of the dress is definitely the pockets, so much fun! :)

So pretty, but run big in chest area!
My friend and I rented these dresses (both size 0) to wear as bridesmaids for our friend's wedding in May. So first of all these dress are stunning! They are bright and fun and a flattering shape and they have pockets!!! But there is one HUGE issue....they are gigantic in the chest area. Both of us are normally size 2, but had to go with 0 because they were falling off (we're both B cups). We ended up double bra-ing and using two sided tape to keep them up. Its a touch-and-go all night! So definitely order down a size if you're not well endowed in the chest. But beyond that we got a million compliments and people thought it was so fun and cute to have a pattered bridesmaid dress! So we were totally happy in the end! The necklaces are RTR also just so you know :)

Beautiful dress!
This dress was beautiful and clearly made well! The smaller size fit and I did not need to try on the 2. However, the chest area was a little loose and I had to pull it up a few times. I loved the length, the material both inside and out, and the pockets! I received so many compliments on the vibrant summer colors!

colorful, comfortable dress
My bust and waist measurements are 36 and 29 inches, respectively, and I would have expected to wear a size 8 in this dress. The 8 was too big but the 6 fit well. There was a little extra room at the bust, but it was probably imperceptible to anyone but me, and I was still able to forgo a bra. There is boning in the bodice and a waist stay for added support, so I wasn't constantly hitching it up like can happen with some strapless dresses. This also necessitated that another person hook and zip me into the dress. The hem hit higher above my knees than I usually wear, so I paired it with flats. Perfectionists take note -- my rental was showing its age and the boning at the top of the bodice was pushing up the white lining and making a sliver of lining visible above the top of the bodice. It didn't bother me but might bother some. I would rent this again and recommend it to others.

Super fun date night dress
This was a dress I received as a backup option when my dress was suddenly unavailable. While it wasn't dressy enough for the wedding I was attending, I did give it a spin for dinner with my husband. The dress was super cute and would be fun to wear to daytime events or casual nights out. There was one big problem. It was obvious the dress has seen a lot of wear and tear. The boning in the corset top kept sliding out from the top showing 1-2 inches of plastic. I kept trying to shove it back in and hold it down with double sided tape but that didn't do much to help it. I would have been really annoyed if this was a dress I picked out myself or my only option for the wedding I was attending.

Perfect for an outdoor summer wedding!
This was comfortable and fit perfectly. I didn't have to pull it up all night because of the boning in the bodice, and the length was exactly right - which is something I'm always concerned about.

Fun dress for a summer event
I wore this dress for the rehearsal dinner of a friend's wedding and felt great in it! I loved the pockets and it felt very well-made; there is a hook at the waistband that holds the dress up rather than the top having to hold the dress up, which meant I wasn't pulling at it all night.

Cute standby!
Shoshanna dresses always fit true to size which is great because it takes the guess work of sizes. Pockets were a plus but the boning in the corset started to irritate my skin by the end of the day. The dress is cute and will work every time.

Perfect summer dress (bonus - pockets!!)
I LOVED this dress! I wore it to an August wedding, and it was so beautiful and comfortable. I rented the 0 and 2... I usually wear a 2 but found that it was too big for my bust. I wore the 0 instead; this was a tiny bit snug around the waist...but after wearing it for a half hour, I didn't notice the tightness! I didn't have to wear a bra, which rarely happens, but the fit was great and I didn't feel any potential slips all night. Also, I love dresses with pockets (even had them in my wedding dress), so I couldn't resist this dress. They are the best! I received so many compliments... I didn't want to send it back!

A pop of color! Beautiful dress.
I got so many compliments on this dress. I am tall and sort of athletic in shape, with broader shoulders and back. The top was tight and did start to feel uncomfortable by the end of the night, so I'm wondering if the 10 would have been better. I never worried about the top sliding down, however. It was short, but not uncomfortable short. The pockets were killer. I felt bright and colorful and felt I made the perfect choice. The necklace was awesome, too.

Cute, quality made dress
The original dress I ordered wasn't available in my size so RTR contacted me asking for my 5 next favorites. I included this one in the next size up in case my first favorite didn't fit, but it did, so I didn't end up wearing this. It was cute and appeared well made and I would have worn it if it was my correct size but it was a bit too big.

Fun, Flirty Print!
Really liked the bright print of the dress, was true to size, did have to hoist it up as the night went on though. The skirt was a bit fully than I was hoping for as I had some issues in the wind and keeping it down. It was perfect length and neckline to still be appropriate but not be sweltering for an August wedding.

This was my first time using RTR and I had a great experience!
This dress was adorable! I wore it for a friend's bridal shower and I just might rent it again for my own! It had support on the inside but I wore a strapless bra in addition. I thought that the dress ran a little large. I generally wear a size 6 and ended up wearing the 4 which still had a little wiggle room to perhaps go another size down. I did experience a little discomfort after sitting for a long period of time but it wasn't excruciating by any means. The dress fell about 5 inches above the knee which was a good length for the occasion. I was very pleased with my first RTR experience and will be renting again!

Loved this dress!
Wore this dress to a summer barn wedding and loved it! Very comfortable and the pockets were great! Only complaint was it was VERY big in the bust- I needed a lot of safety pins to keep it from falling down. Overall would definitely rent again :-)

Fun, Bright Dress!
I wore this dress for a friend's wedding and overall liked it. The fabric felt high end, had nice weight to it, and the pattern was pretty, unique, and colorful. I ordered the 10 and the 12; the 10 was a bit tight in the bust, but the 12 was a bit loose. The boning also got a little uncomfortable at the end of the evening.
