Great dress and color
I wore this to an event for work that was a celebration on the beach. This dress worked great and I got compliments all night. Size wise, I am kind of fluctuating between a 4 and a 6 and if you're like me, size down. Also, like everyone else noticed, the straps are kind of stretched out/long. They never slid off my shoulders fully but they weren't tightly fitted. I'm the only one that noticed though.

Love this dress!
This dress is a great color- got many compliments! The shoulders were way too big on me so I had to pin them back. Besides that the dress fit perfectly.

Great dress for spring wedding
I normally wear a 10/12. A little tight through the thigh area made it difficult to get in and out of my low car, but it looked great!! Top is more true to size. It has a corset support but not enough by itself, you definitely still need a bra with this if you're bigger than a C cup. I wore a simple nude bra, no need for strapless. Perfect for girls with hourglass figures.

Good in theory.
Beautiful color and pattern. Not very form flattering for my thin waist/heavy leg combo. The size six was loose up top but would not fit around my hips. Ended up not wearing this dress.

Color was great and lace was very pretty. Perfect for a NYE dress up party.
I wore the size four which is the size I typically wear. I have a bigger bottom than top, so the straps were super long on my really small shoulders. Other than that it for great, and looked perfect with a pair of nude heels.

Cute dress, great color - great for a summer wedding
Cute dress, bright color and wasn't too short is how I'd sum it up. I'm 5'7 and didn't want the dress to be at crotch level when I sat down. I couldn't wear a bra with it (I don't have a big chest, so wasn't a problem), but noticed at the end of the night there was a bra built in that I hadn't seen - so look out for that! The straps were a little stretched out, but still fit fine. I ended up going with the smaller of the two dresses I ordered because of that.

Great color, ran small
Pretty dress! Loved the lace and color. The neckline was gorgeous. Poured myself into the 8, which was the size up for me, and was a little uncomfortable most of the night.

Beautiful color but too big
I absolutely loved the color, but however it just did not fit my body the way I imagined it would. I wore size 0 and I still needed to pin the back in order for it to stay in place. I felt as if it didn't flatter my shape at all. Overall it was a beautiful color and gorgeous lace but the fit just felt baggy.

Beautiful color!
I wore this dress in a zero, and it fit me okay. The biggest downside was the lace on the dress. It stuck out in weird places, and it somewhat cheapened the look of the dress. Had the dress been newer it probably would have looked much better. Overall it worked for the wedding I went to, but I probably wouldn't rent it again.

This dress runs really big
This dress was HUGE on me, couldn't wear it. Rented both the 0 and 2 and both were huge, big in the bust and hips, overall unflattering. Go for the Nicole Miller lave dresses, they fit much better.

Vibrant color, lovely lace work!
The color was a vey bright pink in person, rather than the reddish/ coral color some pictures depict. The dress was very pretty, but was too big for me , so I had to use tape in a few places to make it more flattering.

The top is large - the bottom was perfect, I had to use tape to keep the shoulders up - the smaller size was to tight in the hips. The color was awesome and the dress if very pretty.

Amazing Dress
My only problem with the dress was the fact the part that straps were too long. I wouldn't of been able to wear it, but we safety pinned it and you could never tell. I wish I had a picture, but the rehearsal dinner was too much fun, we forgot to take pictures.

Loved it!
Beautiful raspberry color that will really make you stand out at whatever event you wear it for. Like most people said, the straps were too long and loose but I dealt with it because the dress was so flattering. The dress also has a built in bodice so you can wear it with or without a strapless bra.

Great color for spring wedding
Dress was a great color, and fit comfortably. You could sometimes see the bra poking out of the v in the back, but not bad enough to worry me. I wore a regular bra, and I'm actually a 32DD, and it fit great in the bust. Only complaint was that the fabric around the neck wouldn't stay flat but instead curled under. Overall a great experience though!

The detail was beautiful and the color really stood out.
I could have worn the 2 but when sitting down the dress had absolutely no give to it so I went with the 4. Also, the top ran a little large/low so I had to pin the shoulders to keep from having a big gap at the sides.

This was a fun and flattering dress.
The waist was a little big, so I wore a belt to help accentuate my curves. The lace was a little old on the sleeves and did not stay flat, and had a tendency to curl under the strap, but I didn't really mind that. I am 5'1" and the dress came down to above my knees, so it was an appropriate length for a more formal wedding.

Beautiful dress, but not a great fit
This dress is beautiful, but unfortunately did not fit great. As others noted, the straps were too long and hung in the back. I'm 5'2" and it was also longer in length than I would have wanted for a cocktail dress. The plus side was that from the front it looked very nice (aside from the modest length), so the pictures look nice!

Great dress, beautiful color!
I wore this dress to an outdoor wedding in Dallas in Sept, and it was great. I'm 5'10 and had no issues with the straps being too loose - I guess since I'm taller. The dress was also not crazy short which can be hard to find for my height. Comfortable for a night of dancing - not too tight (if anything a little too loose in the bust.) Great dress, would recommend it for sure!!

The shoulder straps run a little big in the back and would slip off sometimes. I would def wear a strapless bra. It is a beautiful color and fit.

The color was beautiful and I loved the texture of the dress!
The zero was borderline loose in the chest area where I don't typically have an issue and I wouldn't have been able to size down. The length was perfect with tall heels.

A bright classy dress
I'm larger busted, and it fit surprising well there, if you're not large busted I'd recommend getting your second size smaller. I'm also tall, and it seem that the lace kept riding when is sit and the slip would pop out. Other than that it was amazing, I got multiple compliments :)

The two dress sizes make a huge difference. I am always in between so I wasn't sure.
The fringey lace around the top and bust kept flapping under but overall the dress was great. It is defiantly hot pink and not watermelon pink...it was formal enough for a wedding it wasn't too short

The dress was a great pop of color for a summer wedding.
The dress looked great. It is a perfect pop of color for a summer wedding without being too distracting and taking away from the bride. The sizing was a little tight around the hips but going a size up made me feel like I was swimming in the dress. Ultimately it ended up working out just fine and I was able to dance, walk, move with ease. As others have mentioned the straps did start falling down by the end of the night.

Great color. Super comfortable.
The dress fits true to size. The under layer of fabric does not have any give, so the 4 was a tiny bit tight in the hips on me. With the 6, the sleeves slipped off of my shoulders. Overall really comfortable dress. I danced all night until 1 A.M.!

This dress could have been gorgeous but it smelled terrible and was frayed and terrible condition.
This dress would have been gorgeous but it smelled like body odor and febreeze and was frayed. I tried this on and realized something was different from the picture. The lace scalloping around the neckline was pressed inwards. When I unfolded it, I realized that the edge was all frayed and pilled. It looked as if someone washed it and put it in the washing machine and burned the edges. It was unwearable and unacceptable. This was my backup dress to another dress that was also dirty.

The color is the perfect bright (but rich) geranium pink, and was a lot of fun to wear!
The bottom of this dress ran a bit small. I ended up wearing the larger of the two sizes so the skirt would be more flattering, but the top of the dress was then a bit big on me. (The top of the dress runs pretty true to size.) There is a cool built-in corset device in the dress; smaller busted women definitely should not need a bra. The lace was beautiful, although the details along the neckline were flipped under. I just remembered throughout the night and before pictures to make sure they were all lying flat on my skin and it was fine. For the tall girls out there- I am 5'11", and the dress was a bit on the short side, especially when sitting down. I would definitely rent again- the color was beyond gorgeous and I felt beautiful in this dress. It was a perfect wedding guest style.

Lovely color, but too big!
RTR sent this dress and another after my original choice was damaged or not able to make it for this particular wedding. I love Shoshanna but this dress was just too low and baggy in the straps to wear. Similar to other Shoshanna dresses, I would've had to wear a belt because it was big in the waist too. But a gorgeous hot pink color! Ended up wearing a Trina Turk bow sheath. Regardless, RTR provided amazing customer service and that's what my big takeaway was!

Loved the color for an end of summer wedding
I wore the size 6, which is my normal size. The bust area has a lot of room, which is great for busty girls. Me, not so much. I still wore it and it was fine, but definitely didn't help me out or enhance me In the boobs department. It did have a structured bust area which helped a little. I wore a backless sticky bra because the V in back dipped just a little too low for me to be able to wear a regular bra. The silk sheath underneath the lace was very tight. It didn't look bad overall, but it did feel constricting. Overall I'd wear it again! Great color, pretty lace, (and didn't show sweat or feel too hot at a 95 degree outdoor ceremony).

Great pop of color and perfect for a summer wedding!
I loved the color and quality of the dress. I am typically a size 4 but the size 2 in this dress fit better. However, the lace straps were too long so if the straps weren't wide, they would have fallen down. I don't have a big bust so I'm sure if I filled out the top more, the strap issue wouldn't have been a problem but it still slightly bothered me throughout the night. All in all, it was a very pretty dress and great for a hot summer wedding.

Very flattering - sexy, sophisticated color & fit
Shoshannah definitely designs for more well endowed women - I thought this dress fit beautifully (I did end up with a 4, and am typically a 6, but also have been training for a marathon) and I loved how it looked. Yes, beware, the straps are definitely looser and I did find myself pulling at them to keep them in place but it didn't bother me too much. Color is great on - looked a bit duller on the hanger, but was much brighter on. My second RTR experience and loved it.
