Very beautiful material! Wore to a winter wedding and received many compliments on the dress. I rented a 6 and the top fit well but, the bottom was a little snug.

I rented this dress for a weekend in Las Vegas, the picture doesn't show the front of the dress very well. The front of the dress bulges, and made me look bigger than I really am.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the dress. The top was a little big, but with a padded bra it was completely fine. Can not say enough how much I loved the dress. I wore it to a senior prom, and everyone loved it! Very classy, very stunning, very comfortable.

Unfortunately I had to order sizes 2 and 6 and would have definitely worn the size 4. I ended up squeezing into the size 2 but where it was snug in some places, the stomach poofed out in a weird way

The material is thick and is a pretty color. However, the pleating just did not look right on me. I'm curvy with a flat stomach, but it made me look like I had a bit of a belly. It would have been better if belted.

Dress is meant for a girl with a fuller chest or more hourglass figure...neither of which is me. Beautiful dress, but I was unable to wear it. Chest gaped if I moved at all, and the material is a bit stiff and sticks out awkwardly if you don't fill it out (e.g., back of dress below the waist)

Loved this dress! I did notice the small bump in the fabric because of the way it fell over the bum, but it was hardly noticeable after some careful ironing. Many compliments!

I really liked this dress! Ordered it as a back up but ended up wearing it. I would recommend it for girls with a bigger chest, as I'm a size 4/6 with a D cup and the chest was almost too big. It is a bit snug/short in the bum, but nothing inappropriate. Looks great with a cuff and tall nude pumps.

Wore this to my husband's company holiday party in Chicago and received many compliments. I added a black patent belt after reading other reviews. Dress is comfortable, however, the pleating in the back is a little awkward. Would definitely wear it again!

Great dress for weddings!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to a wedding last fall and really loved the style. It does run a tad small overall, but true to size for Shoshanna. The silver color is beautiful and is very weather versatile. I wore this with sheer pantyhose, but it would also have looked great with sheer black tights or even bare legs. The fabric makes it more of a fall/winter dress, in my opinion, but under the right circumstances I think it could be worn in the spring or summer as well.

This dress is great for any season. I wore it to a formal June wedding but could easily work any time of year. Color is great and the shoulder detailing adds a fun pop. I love Shoshanna dresses--fit is always great for me but they do tend to run a size smaller than what I normally wear.

NYE/ Wedding Perfection

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was a great dress for an NYE wedding. It was funky, had just the right amount of sparkle and was the prefect fit! I also loved that I could wear black tights under it- that helped me bear the cold Washington, DC evening. It's very easy to dance in, too. :) I wouldn't recommend this dress if you don't have a flat stomach: the pleating at the waist would unfortunately make a little pooch stand out more than it would in other dresses. Overall, an awesome dress!

Perfect for a Winter wedding.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a wedding that I played violin for and wore it nearly as pictured, with black tights, black shoes and a chunky bracelet. The dress itself is stunning. Color is pretty and the jewels are pretty as well. The jeweled piece on the dress I wore was a little worse for wear, you can tell it has been worn and loved many times, but not anything that sticks out like a sore thumb. I wore some spanx bottoms with mine just to tighten myself up a bit, not because the was too tight. Highly recommend this stunner.

Got a 4 and a 6 and the 4 was a little tighter in the hips but the waist was too big in the 6. I think sizing down is appropriate.

Runs big, need to have a larger bust to fill the top out also someone taller would look good in it. For sure not a dress for a petite girl.

I really like the fit of Shoshanna dresses- they work for girls with big busts but they can still run tight in the chest so consider sizing up.

It didn't fit well.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a fall wedding and was so in love with it when it arrived in the mail. The color is beautiful and the detail on the shoulder gives it a little something special. Unfortunately, it was too snug on my booty so I was unable to wear it to the event since they didn't have a back up size in stock. But the sweet folks at RTR were kind enough to let me return the dress and gave me a full credit in return. I just used the credit to rent another dress for a wedding this weekend!

I wore this dress to a holiday party. It fit really well, was comfortable, and was forgiving. I usually wear a 2, and this fit very true to size. It's not my favorite dress I've rented, but I still really liked it.

I rented this dress for a company holiday party--I have the same style dress in a different color so I knew what size to get, however this version was a little tiny bit baggy in some areas, but not enough to make a huge difference. The only real complaint i have is that the color looks different in person then it does in the picture but overall a very cute and appropriate dress for a holiday party!

Overall fit: True to Size

Normally, I wear a 6, but with Spanx I fit comfortably into a 4 in this dress. The 6 was a little big in the chest but overall I would say the dress was true to size. The dress looked and felt great. I received many compliments. The rhinestones on the shoulder are a fun and sparkly touch without being "too much".

Weird pleats made it look like I had a tail!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress is lovely - the color and the shoulder detailing are really pretty. But the pleats bunched in the back in a really unattractive way. I rented the size zero, which was snug everywhere else, but the pleats made it look like the dress was really ill fitting. Couldn't wear the dress for this reason. I

Overall I liked the dress but the fit was a little strange. It was really bulky in the chest and hips, I probably could have gone a size down.

This was great for a cocktail reception I attended. The sides were a bit big on me under the arms but not too noticeable, while the hips and waist were just fitted enough. The beading on the shoulder was great and added sparkle without having to accessorize!

It was just OK :(

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I really wanted a gray dress to complement my fiancé's tux for a wedding. The color ended up matching nicely however the dress was much darker in person than I expected. The 2 fit a bit tight in the hips so I went with the 4 for the wedding. Looking back at the pictures the dress made me look like I had a belly, when I didn't. Disappointed in this rental.
