Great Dress for Engagement Party

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Wore this dress to my friend's engagement party. The dress is very cute and fits TTS; however, it was very hard to move in. I am 5'7" and 120lbs and wore the size 2. I wore flats and it was just a little short, but it was impossible to lift my arms up or bend down without the dress riding all the way up. I also rented the 4, but the length wasn't much difference and it was just baggy in the top and torso area. Recommend for people under 5'6".

I acutally ordered this as a backup dress and it worked out. It is a little short and im only 5'5. I wore it in October with tights. It is comfortable and looked great, but I had to be careful raising my arms. I did get lots of compliments.

This material is gorgeous.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
I'm 5'9 and normally wear a 10/12. I went with the 12 because it was the only one sent, but also, this dress is short and I imagine that any size smaller would have made the dress even shorter. It wasn't obscene while standing, but I was lucky in that while I was sitting, I was at a table with a napkin in my lap! I loved this dress and got lots of compliments while wearing it, but it also photographs well. I'd say that if you're a girl with great legs (but even if you don't... I def don't), this is your dress!

This dress is great. I'm not sure how the taller girls can wear this though. I'm only 5 ft tall and it was the perfect length on me, but any shorter would have been far too short., The arms are a little snug, but nothing terrible. I wanted to keep this dress. It photographs great too. This dress is great for anyone with curves or a muscular build.

The 0 fit beautifully, and the dress shone under the lights all night long- it was a real knock-out! However, it was a little short on me because I am on the taller side; I couldn't raise my arms above my head for fear of flashing someone. But overall, a great dress!!

The shine to the striped fabric of this dress makes it an option to dress up or down. I wore it with black tights and booties to a fashion show, but it would be perfect for a something a little more formal too.

Fun dress with lots of sass!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress and it was perfect for the evening. The event was a beer and food tasting event that people dress up a bit for. I was on my feet all night, so the length wasn't an issue. But it is on the short side, so had I needed to sit, I would have had to be pretty careful. The fabric isn't heavy exactly, just thick, so maybe not the best choice for the dead of summer. But this dress was just so great and I loved wearing it. The print is fun, looks awesome with a bold necklace (I wore it with the tribal necklace from RTR) and a bright lip (I went with fuchsia/orchid). The shoulder and arms of the dress were a little tight, so I wouldn't recommend this for dancing. It skims the body nicely and leaves plenty of room in the torso area. In the picture it looks funny there, but in person it looks fab. I'd totally rent this again.

Perfect for Spring

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
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!

this dress runs SMALL especially if you have remotely athletic arms/shoulders. the mid-section of the dress fit fine, except i could not move my arms AT ALL. the fabric has ZERO give. i doubt sizing up another size would have helped make this dress wearable. also, the other reviews are right - it runs SUPER short (even being a short person)! i love shoshanna, but definitely not their best work.

This was a great dress for the wedding I went to that was semi formal! It was nice enough for that wedding environment but it was essentially a party dress which is what I wanted since I knew I would be dancing a lot and it was a "beach" wedding. My only concern was how short the dress became when I sat down. Being around aunts and uncles it was the best that some side butt showed ... But I was on my feet a lot so it worked out ok.

I wore this dress to my cousin's outdoor wedding reception. I was kind of nervous about the thickness of the fabric because down here in Texas, it stays in the 90's until about October. But, thankfully it was perfect and we got a little cold front this past weekend! The compliments started as soon as I walked in, and didn't end until I walked out the back to leave! I loved it!

Gorgeous fabric and cute fit/style but it is very short! I normally wear a size 2/4… I rented the 2 and 4 for back up. The 2 fit perfectly everywhere except it was inappropriately short (like barely covered my butt cheeks--no bending over or sitting down!) so I wore the 4 even though it was a big baggy in the stomach and hips. It was fine though and went with the shift style of the dress, but if you are on the taller side and want something fitted but not short i wouldn't recommend this dress. All in all, i got lots of compliments and it was a cute/comfy dress to wear for a dinner party!

Fun party dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for an alumni homecoming mixer in the fall and it was a beautiful, thicker material, high quality dress with a little shine to it. I loved it and it photographed very well! It fits like a typical shift style dress, but is definitely on the short side. I would recommend ordering a size up for your back-up. The size 6 fit, but I wore the size 8 because I was more comfortable with the length. The size 6 was also a little tight across my chest. You could definitely dress this style up or down, mine felt a little more casual pairing it with black tights and boots.

I loved this dress...wore it out for my birthday. Got SO many compliments, everyone asked if I could keep it! The 6 wasn't available when I rented so I had to order a size down and a size up. If I had the 6 I would have worn it, I wore the 4 - still looked great but the material doesn't give much give so I had trouble lifting my arms (Fashion over comfort right? haha) It also was a bit short, but since I'm short it totally worked with tights and boots. I would def rent this again!

Very well made and great fabric/material made it feel very luxurious. Can be dressed up or down. I would say it is really really short so I would not have been comfortable wearing this without stockings. So to me this is more of a winter dress. I am 5"4. I think the short length is okay since the rest of the dress is not showy. I also think if you have no boobs at all this dress may look to boxy and if you have large boobs the chest area will be too tight. All in all I loved it but think it is more body specific than most dresses. Good luck!

I got the 0 & 2 as a backup, the 0 fit perfect but the bust was tight and it was short. I tried on the 2 but then it was just too shift looking, not cute. I wore the 0 and it was so comfortable, perfect for thanksgiving bc i could eat all i wanted and not have my food baby show. The only con was the shortness but it looked good when you stand normal but make sure you have someone to help you when you drop stuff bc if you bend over your whole butt will show. but i do wish i could have stolen this dress. sorry rtr.....
