What a fun dress and had pockets!! Would definitely rent again!!
I loved this dress and got compliments all night! This dress is made very well but the fabric is heavy so I probably would not recommend wearing it to a summer wedding (like I did) because I was SO HOT when dancing and just sitting outside for the ceremony but I think it would be perfect for a fall or winter event. The dress was flirty and feminine without showing too much cleavage and because the top is very structured I didn't have to worry if everything was in place. The length for me (5'3") was perfect and very appropriate for a wedding. The only downside is there is absolutely no give in the waist and the 2 fit me a little snug. (Usually I could either go with a 2 or 4 but the 4 was not available so I took a chance with the 2. If I had a choice I would have definitely gone with the bigger size for comfort.). Also the zipper on the 2 was almost broken! I was so close to not being able to wear the dress because the zipper was so sticky we couldn't zip it up or down! At the end of the day I would DEFINITELY rent this dress again but in the next size up.

This dress was very pretty, much more sparkle in person than in picture. The material was very thick and I felt the skirt was a little too full. It didn't seem to lay like the photo. Good for winter events.

adorable
This dress ran true to size and is very fun and flirty. I got many compliments on it. Only thing to beware of is if you have a big chest - that will definitely show in this dress. I wore a cardigan over it because I felt a little self-conscious.

Watching my best friend from high school celebrate her engagement to the man of her dreams made me so happy to be there and celebrate.
I rented this dress a couple weeks ago for my friend's bridal shower, and I received many compliments on it. The skirt part was a little fuller than I expected and it was a big longer than I expected as well (I'm 5'3"), but the top part fit great and it made my bust look bigger than normal. Tried to do a photoshoot by Lake Michigan but the weather was awful. See pics below. but don't make fun:) All in all, I would give it 4 out of 5 stars!

I rented this dress for a Thanksgiving dinner I was hosting. I loved everything about this dress. It flattered my shape and was super comfortable. I got numerous compliments and told all my guest they should check out this sight. I would definitely rent it again.

Great fall/winter dress!
This was my first rental from RTR. I wore it to a wedding in October and loved it! It is more silver in person (I think the picture makes it appear more gold) but it was perfect. The skirt was a bit fuller but that was fine. I got tons of compliments.

Cute Dress
I rented this dress for a xmas party. I did not wear this dress but actually wore the backup. The reason I chose not to wear this is because the neckline showed a tad too much cleavage for a work function. However, the dress is adorable and would have worn it without question had my function been with friends only. The skirt is VERY full, which I liked. The waist is high, and creates a slimming look. Very cute, perfect for winter as the fabric is heavy.

Celebrating Christmas!
There weren't any reviews when I rented this dress for my Christmas party, but now there are clearly some themes. I have a small bust but am currently nursing, so they "grow" through the night. By the end, I had a full on cleavage which is surprising because the dress isn't terribly low cut. If you have a full bust, it would be too much. The dress is also a little fuller on the bottom than the photo. I think this has to do with the pockets. Both of those things being said, I LOVED the dress. The bottom wasn't too full in my opinion and I don't have a large chest, so the first "issue" didn't matter to me. I had a baby 9 weeks ago so it hid all the parts that needed to be hidden. It had a nice shimmer to it and I received a ton of complements. It was very flirty and the perfect party dress!

Poofy!
I rented this dress for my company holiday party. But I didn't end up wearing it because the skirt was so poofy-- I felt like I had a petticoat on! The grey is actually a little more sparkly than in the picture online, which I actually loved. Wish it had worked out!

Perfect Dress
I ordered this dress for a Christmas Party. The skirt is fuller than I thought but I got used to it (and I loved the pockets). I received so many compliments! I ordered the 4 and 6 because I was afraid my chest was too big for the smaller size but the 4 fit perfect.

Classy and sexy!
I rented this dress for a holiday work party, and I love it! The dress has a lot more sparkle than appears in the photo, which was perfect for the occasion. I ordered the 2 and the 4 and went with the 2. It runs slightly large, because my usual size is a 4. I'm somewhat busty, and this dress actually showed a lot of cleavage, but was still classy. The material is heavy and the bottom of the dress has a lot more volume than shown in the picture. I loved the pockets as well. The pleats at the bottom of the dress didn't exactly lay flat, but they can be smoothed out. The arm holes also dip lower than expected, but a regular bra can still be worn without showing. Showed off my waist but still had enough room to dance comfortably. LOVE this dress!

Flattering, loved it
Wore this to a cocktail attire wedding. It was mostly flattering and i loved how it had pockets! I know that Shoshanna dresses tends to be more forgiving in the bust so the dress was a little too large on top for me. But otherwise very flattering, perfect for cocktail attire!

Looks even better in person...
Loved this dress! Wore it to an Emmy awards ceremony and got lots of compliments. Read where many felt the bust didn't fit quite right...I didn't have any trouble. The pockets were a nice addition. Wore it with silver pumps with a 3 inch asymmetrical heel. Not a dress for the summer...the fabric is too heavy, but I'd recommend it for the fall or winter.

Fun for a party
I wore this dress to a wedding on New Years Eve. It was perfect for the event. The fabric is a bit heavy but that was nice for the winter time. The V in front is a bit low- but that didn't bother me at all.

Nice sheen, well-made, simple.
Has pockets built in and it's well-made so they don't bulk it up or change the shape of the skirt. Thicker material though, so definitely not ideal for a hot night or dancing if you sweat easily.

Couldn't wear this dress
I really wanted to dress to work but it was so unflattering on the bust. Fuller busted ladies beware. That being said RTR shipped me a backup dress the next day for only the cost of shipping.

I felt completely comfortable and care free in this dress!
It fit perfect, snug around the wait and flairs out at the bottom of the waist. The neck isn't too low and fit my A cup chest well! Length was just perfect. The only negative is the straps tend to irritate the front of my shoulders, but besides that, PERFECT!

Beautiful dress, great fit, comfortable, warm. Perfect!
I adored wearing this dress! I would have fit into the 10, but I wanted to be comfortable all night, especially when I'd be jumping and dancing and singing at a concert. The straps were a bit big, but it wasn't uncomfortable. I have a pair of pretty large girls, and this dress is pretty low-cut, so be prepared for some eyes on ya! The material is heavy and it does have plenty of volume on the bottom, but I loved the way it looked. Plenty of compliments all night!

Was a really great dress, full skirt and a heavy fabric perfect for a fall wedding!
Was a little big on me but i am petite and the double sided tape that was included in the package easily fixed that. Received a ton of compliments, already looking to rent another dress for a December wedding.

beautiful dress, too big to wear
the dress is lovely in person - nice tweed and cute silver shine. however, it was a little big for me. i'm a pretty standard size 8 and it was boxy. also, know that the skirt is QUITE full. it was more full than i expected (and i like full skirts).

Loved This Dress
This dress was perfect for my figure - it cinched just above the wait and flared out just the right amount. The dress is more metallic then it appears in the image, but I liked it more in person, it makes the dress a bit more formal. It also is a little bit more low cut then I thought but overall I loved it and received compliments on it all night!

Great for a holiday party!
I wore those to my company's holiday party and it was perfect for the occasion. That said, I wish that I had paid better attention to the prior reviews, because it really does show quite a bit of cleavage -- and if I had another option, I probably would have gone with that. Also, as the other reviewers pointed out, the skirt is more full than pictured, and I think is a bit unflattering. It's a super cute dress, but would prob. look best on someone tall and slim -- and while I fit the bill for tall, not so much on the slim.

I rented this dress for my birthday party and felt fabulous and comfortable the whole night!
I rented the size 4 and size 6, they both fit but the 6 had just a bit more room so I choose to wear it for the comfort. More beautiful in person and the perfect dress for many occasions and wish I owned it.

Beautiful & comfy!
LOVED this dess and received so many compliments! I wore it to a winter wedding on a frigid night in New England. This dress has some weight so it was warmer than the usual party dress. Pockets were an added bonus and the pleats were a nice covering for anything you may want to hide!!

Wonderful dress!
I wore this to a country club christmas party and felt great. It fit true to size, I wore my usual size 2. It is a rather full skirt, which I liked for concealing my stomach. It is also rather low cut, so it may not be appropriate for bigger busted women going to a conservative event. It is a thick fabric with some sparkle, so probably better suited to the fall and winter.

Perfect for a holiday party!!!
This dress was gorgeous. The weight of the material made it appropriate for the winter weather, yet it didn't feel too heavy. I loved that the wider straps allowed me to wear a real bra, and, while the neckline was low, it was not so low as to be inappropriate for a family event. The skirt was pretty short, but its fullness kept it tasteful. Loved this dress and will definitely rent it again!

The dress is extremely flattering, but it runs a little big. It was little looser than I would have liked, but it definitely still worked. I don't think anyone noticed that it was a little loose from the waste up but me.

Fun and perfect for a party!
Super fun dress, perfect for a party and a nice alternative to a lbd. Very nice fabric with just a bit of shimmer to it. I have a fairly full bust, so it was a bit snug up top and I opted to wear the bigger size. It's fairly low cut in the front, but it's easy to wear a bra with this dress (as long as it plunges fairly low) because of the way it's cut and the little internal strings to hold the straps in place.

Great for an indoor party/winter time event...
The dress fit very well. I wore the smaller size I ordered without needing to wear a bra. The fabric was pretty heavy for summer time. If I rented again it would be for a NYE or Christmas party since the wool-like feel was kind of scratchy during the summer. Overall, a solid rental for a country club rehearsal dinner.

Pretty Material, Flattering Shape and Pockets
I wore this dress to a wedding. The material is thick but comfortable, and the dress feels well made. There is more shimmer than in the photo on RTR but still subtle enough to not feel too flashy. From a fit perspective, I would say you could size down unless you have a medium/large bust. I had to wear my regular size in order to zip up around the chest. The V-cut was low but not scandalous. The cut is very flattering, and the pockets are a lot of fun. I added a necklace for a pop of color and a black shrug. I received numerous compliments at the wedding, many from strangers. I would rent this dress and designer again.

The fabric is very thick, which was nice for an outdoor October wedding. The top showed a lot more bust than I expected. I would rent this again for a party with friends, but not for a wedding with older relatives.
