Overall fit: True to Size

this dress was so easy and simple and chic! It's almost a brassy gold metallic tweed fabric, with a super easy fit- this is only fitted in the top area, so you're really going to want to size to your top half on this one! I would jazz this up with some really pretty accessories for some wow factor. Great for holiday parties! True to size and a great length- not too long and not too short.

Didn't wear

Wanted to love this dress! The fit is really odd - super loose in the waist and was *very* low cut for what appears to be a modest party dress in the model photo. As someone with a larger chest, not what I was looking for, nor wanting to be showing off for a conservative wedding ceremony.

Dress is great if it fit. Too small in the busy area!

I didn't end up wearing this dress because it was too tight in the bust, but if it had been a little bigger there I would have loved it!

Did not end up wearing the dress.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

Really narrow chest area- good for those with smaller ribcages. It also felt awkwardly long and hit at/below my knee. Neither the 4 or the 6 fit, although none of the sizes of this dress would have fit. Would look best on narrow ribcage, very tall body types. Did not end up wearing to the event.

Rehearsal Dinner Dress - Will photograph very well - Runs slightly large

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Overall the dress itself was beautiful and it photographed very well. I am normally a size 0 but this dress was slightly loose in the midsection. A friend had to use two safety pins in the back seams to pull it tight. I also wore a push up bra to fill in the top. Otherwise, the dress would have been too loose on me. Still liked it and received plenty of compliments once it was pinned back.

Delivered on time when I was in a pinch and for a great price!

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I did have to try on the bigger size because it was really tight around the rib cage. Even though the bigger size fit perfect at the top, it also made the skirt longer and poof out more. I didn't like the way the bottom looked at all.

it was ok....

The v neck part in the front was loose, so I had to use some duck tape to keep it in place. It also was longer than I expected.

This dress fits great & is flattering - the fabric is good quality and the metallic color can go either gold or silver. It has pockets! I wore it out for girls night on my birthday and will rent again for sure.

Loved the sparkle and cut of dress!

I am always a fan of Shoshanna dresses. This dress was no different. It was a little big in the waste and through the hips (dress has pockets). My problem with most Shoshanna is the 2 fits except the bust area. I have a Y frame and on the busty side. Otherwise I could for sure size down in Shoshanna dresses. Overall, loved the dress.

This dress had a lot of promise, but I ended up not wearing it.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large

This dress is really cute and unique, but unfortunately it just didn't work for me. I rented a zero and a two, and the zero was definitely the right size. However, the neckline was too low-cut for the family event I was attending, and something about the dress made me look bigger. I will say that it's a good dress for taller ladies -- the skirt hit about two inches above my knee. The sparkly/metallic fabric is great for fall and the holiday season. I really wanted to like it, but ultimately decided to swap it out for another dress at the RTR showroom in Flatiron. As always, great customer service from RTR made the whole process totally painless, and I found a great dress to wear for my event.

Very sparkly, flattering, great quality and comfortable.

The fit was perfect. I'm a true size 4 and this was perfect: not too tight, not too big. I have a small upper body but the dress was not boxy at all. You can eat and drink all night and still be comfortable.

It was so easy to ship back. Much easier than going to the mall to find a dress.

I loved this dress! I wore it to a holiday party. It fit perfectly. I am short so it was longer on me than the model. It hit right above my knee. It was also more low cut than I was expecting. I have a small chest and I barely fit into the top so something to keep in mind if you have a big chest. I would absolutely recommend this dress though.

The dress has nice gold and black tweed detail. Great for a cocktail or holiday party.

I rented this for a Christmas party, and it was my first time using Rent The Runway. The dress is fitted on top so base your size on the top half of your body. So glad I grabbed the next size up as I am in between a 6-8 and the 8 fit perfectly. I added several gold bracelets and black and gold earrings to compliment the dress. I received lots of compliments and will be using Rent The Runway again!

Cute dress for NYE.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Black and gold sparkle were nice for a classic dress on NYE. Extra effort from my boyfriend was needed to help zip the back for the tight top... The zipper was alittle tough but we made it work. Size 6 fit pretty much the same but the skirt was longer so I went with the 4..

Didn't sit flat on the chest. It looked pulled and not filled out all at the same time. Didn't have to wear a bra though and the length was good.

This is a beautiful dress! It is more black and gold in person than the picture. It is a little longer than I expected as well as the material is very heavy!!
