So short I couldn't wear it
Beautiful fabric and pattern. Wish I could have work! Both sizes I got were so short that I couldn't wear them. I'm 5'6, which I don't consider to be ridiculously tall, so beware!

Another happy rental!
I wore this dress to a wedding. This dress was very true to size. The 8 fit but was too tight in my bust so I wore the 10 and it fit great. I was a little worried about the length but I'm rather short so it wasn't a problem. The sleeves were a little restraining and the slip did show a little especially when sitting. Overall, I loved the dress and would rent again!

Pretty green & blue shift dress w/necklace
I was really nervous to rent a dress that I've never tried on before. Especially not knowing if it will fit until the day you leave town! I have an athletic built with wide hips, thick thighs and a small waist- so a lot of things never fit me properly in the right spots. I almost rented a size 6 & 8, but I decided to go with the an 8 & 10. Good thing because the size 8 wouldn't even fit around my hips!!! The size 10 was way too big for my waist but fit my hips perfectly and it was a little too small in the sleeve area, a bit tight. If I lifted my arms the dress would show my underwear, Oy! The sleeves run realllly small and the dress is pretty short. But overall it was a pretty dress. I also rented that necklace with the dress which matched perfectly.

Too small.. wore it anyway. Had to suck-in during dinner!
This dress runs small and has no stretch! I needed a dress for date night with my husband while we were on vacation. Didn't have time to exchange it once I realized how snug it was, so I put on a pair of spanx and wore it anyways. Was sucking in all night! I did really like the pretty colors in it and it was a nice material. I would recommend wearing it if you can order a size up.. mine wasn't available. If you have curves like me, might be tighter on you.

Great for day to night!
Rented for my cousin's bridal shower & family dinner in late March. Runs true to size but is short - perfect with tights! I wore during the day, but great sheen to the fabric - with the right necklace you could easily transition day to night.

Great simple dress for a party! Can easily be dressed up or down depending on your event.
Received the dress a day early. I wore it at a birthday party and got tons of compliments! However, it's a bit on the short side even for my petite frame and the black lining does show up sometimes. But that won't stop me from renting again. Their service is always great!

Extremely comfortable but maybe not the best for hot weather!
This dress fit great - I wore it to a rehearsal dinner and there was plenty of room in case I over indulged! It was the perfect height for me since I am only 5'1 but I could see it being short on other. Only downside was that it was an August wedding and I was pretty hot since the material was kind of heavy.

Beautiful fabric and fun for NYE
Loved the dress but it's very very short. I didn't mind because i was wearing tights but was still self conscious about my napkin placement when I sat down at dinner because it rode up so high. Still fun for NYE!

Fun Bachelorette party dress
Over all the dress was comfortable, easy to wear and cute. The only issue is that it is very short. I don't consider myself that tall but I had to wear tights to feel comfortable.

I love the colors and material but the dress is a bit short. Actually really short. I was scared to bend over or go up stairs.

Loved the color!
I really liked this dress. It was great to wear to dinner on vacation. It's very flattering for a shift, which is something that I don't always find to be the case, and I really liked the color/pattern of it. As pretty much all of the other reviews have stated, it's very short. However I expected this based on the other reviews and planned in advance to wear flats with it, so it wasn't a big deal for me. I definitely couldn't have bent over while wearing it though as my whole butt would have been visible. Additionally the arms are fairly constricting, but again I was expecting that. I do feel that the 2 might have looked a little better, but I also think that it would have been more restrictive in the arms and shorter, so the 4 worked just fine for me. I will say the one real complaint I had about the dress was that it smelled very strange, which was slightly off putting, but once I put perfume on, I didn't really notice it. Overall, I enjoyed wearing this dress.

Beautiful color, shift dresses aren't for me
My body type does not look good in shift dresses but this was the only green dress that was available around the holidays. I wore it for our Christmas cards, I think next year I'll pick a A-line or flare dress.

Definitely a short dress. I'm 5'1 and it was still short. I wore flats but when I say down it was pretty short. Tons of compliments and very good quality. Great for a party!

Pretty dress, too short
Too short for someone who's 5'8—I could maybe get away with it with tights, but definitely not bare legs. Quite narrow across the shoulders as well. Really pretty colors and material though! Brighter blues and greens than expected.

Dress is super cute and I received tons of compliments through the evening .
Gorgeous dress , but is very short. Works fine while standing but rides up very high while sitting down. Also the dress tat was sent to me had a very strong bad odor around the inner neck area , that's the reason for 4 stars . My guess is this dress was probably not dry cleaned properly after the previous user.

This was so easy!!
The fit was true to size and I think the length was pretty perfect for a shift dress, although I was not bending over much!! I'm 5'3 and it was great for me. You might have a problem if you are taller. It photographed beautifully and have SO many compliments!! I loved this dress!! My first RTR!! I'm hooked!!

cute dress!
I originally rented this for a wedding but ended up wearing for the rehearsal dinner instead. Dancing would have been really hard (scratch that, impossible) because there was zero give at all in the arms and chest area--I couldn't lift my arms past my shoulders. Other than the tightness up top, I really like this dress; pretty color and cute fit. Easy to dress up or down too-- wore it with tights and boots since it was snowing and still felt fancy.

Cute dress, runs small!
Very pretty design, and thick, quality fabric, but this ran very small. I was planning to wear it with black tights, and not even to work, but it was too restricting in the shoulders, and too short.

I wore this dress to a birthday brunch and it was very cute. For me, the fit was a little big.
The dress is very short but classy.

too big :(
I thought I was safe ordering a size 6 & 8 but to my surprise I needed a 4. I never wear a size 4 and I've recently gained weight, not lost. I was super bummed being this was my first RTR! I guess order 3 sizes to be safe.

Perfect party dress!
Loved this dress. Fun and comfortable - got lots of compliments and danced away. Runs a bit large - I wore my usual size but could have gone down one size. Then again, I like shift dresses to be a snug.

Lovely fabric. Much nicer in person.
I did not actually end up wearing this, as the wedding brunch I rented it for, ended up being more casual, but I would definitely rent it again. It was a great, cute, stylish dress. I rented the 2, since I am typically a 2 in Shoshanna, but if I rented it again, I may go with the 0. The top was a bit big, with darts that made it obvious I was not filling it out. If you're looking for a nice day-to-night dress, this is it. UPDATE: I rented the 0 for another occasion and woah was it short! The top fit perfect, though! Ugh. I tried.

The colors were perfect and the dress was effortless!
I loved this dress! I wore it for our non-profit gala. As the event coordinator, I literally have no time to get ready right before the event. This dress was perfect for that. It didn't need any special care or accessories- I just threw it on, added some tights and black booties and was good to go. I thought it fit a little big though. I actually would have fit better in a 0 because there was TONS of room in the front and hips. It's also very short, as the other reviews said, but I'm short too so once I paired it with tights it worked just fine.

Easy to wear and more interesting pattern than a normal shift dress.
I wore it with tights and booties to help winterize. Also wore a belt to be a bit more sleek.

Amazing dress!
Tried this on thinking it probably wouldn't look that good because this style usually isnt flattering on me... but amazingly it fit like it was tailored for me. I am 5'2 and it was even a little short on me - can't imagine anyone taller getting away with it as a dress. My bust is relatively large but it fit perfectly - not too tight. Overall super cute and perfect for a date night.

Great Dress!
I normally wear a size 8 in Shoshanna, but because the dress is a shift and a little boxy, I had to go up one size. I'm 5'4 so it wasn't as short on me as it is on the model. Dress is really pretty in person- wore to a rehearsal dinner and got a lot of compliments.

Not for Pear Shapes, Perfect for Petites
I read other reviews carefully so I thought this could work but bc of my round bottom half and the dress already being so short it looked more like a t-shirt. FAIL for me.

Perfect for Spring
As others have said, it is quite short. I would not recommend this dress for an event that requires dancing. I wore it to my brother's high school outdoor graduation and it was perfect. It is heavier that some other dresses, so if it is over 75 degrees, you might be uncomfortable. I would have preferred to wear the 0 because it fit me on top better, but the length was not appropriate. The sleeves are not forgiving either so if you have muscular arms, I would size up or avoid this dress. I belted the dress to make up for the extra room for going up a size. Perfect for my event but definitely wouldn't want to wear it all day!
