Maybe 1 size up is better
I'm 5'2, 48kg and bought a size 0, the top part of the dress (chest and underarm area) is quite tight for me (I'm 32B you see, def not enough room for curvy figure), I suggest 1 size up, overall is a nice dress. I found the same sizing problem with other Shoshanna dresses as well, maybe they should do something about it.

Love! but something off about arm holes?
I love this dress and was going to order it from SB, but I tried it on in a boutique this past weekend and my normal 2 fit everywhere but the arm holes suffocated me, so I tried a 4, too big everywhere else but arms still too small. And I by no means have broad shoulders either. Love this dress and this breaks my heart! Hopefully Shoshanna can get this worked out.

beautiful colour, underskirt no good
the colour of this dress is wonderful.but the quality of the underskirt is no good enough. It is easy to get static electricity.

Flattering, great fabric
This dress is cute. I ordered a 6, and I'd say it runs a smidge big. I love the fabric. I'll probably end up wearing a skinny belt with it to define my waist more. Overall I really like it!

returned
In the picture this dress looks orange, but in actuality it is neon pinky/orange. It is awful. The material feels cheap, the fit is frumpy, and it just does not look good at all in person! I was very disappointed. Not worth the money.

Just didn't work
The color and the fabric are gorgeous. Unfortunately, the size 8 was too large (I vary between 6 and 8, but as a 34D, I'm usually a size 8 in strapless dresses) in the waist AND bust. It wouldn't stay up without alterations. Also, the zipper got caught at the waist line (even when I wasn't wearing the dress), which was a little thick and therefore didn't really nip in at the smallest part of my midsection - it just sort of hovered around it and made me appear larger. I loved the pockets, though. I'm sad to send this dress back.

Adorable Dress
I have several other Shoshanna dresses and the Odette dress is a great addition to any closet! I wore the dress to a May wedding and received many compliments on the dress and plan on wearing it to another wedding later this summer. I love the ruffle on the chest and the pockets are a fun addition and make the dress feel very effortless and comfortable. The only complaint I could imagine someone having is that the boning in the top of the dress can be a little uncomfortable after wearing the dress for a few hours, but it didn't bother me too much. I am larger on top and was not able to fit a strapless bra under the dress, but it is structured enough that it provided plenty of support without a bra. It's a fun spring/summer party dress!

Pretty Dress
This dress is a beautiful color - but was running huge to size. I am normally a 4 in Shoshanna Dresses - and it was falling down on me and there was a ton of fabric. Would recommend going down a size.

Purchased Twice - still crazy big
I loved the color of this dress, however it runs extremely LARGE. I purchased first in a size 2, then in a size 0, and the dress was still extremely large on me and not workable. I couldn't even consider tailoring it, as there would just be too much to take in everywhere. Perhaps Shoshanna runs large? I am not familiar with this designer, however I always take a size 2 pretty much across the board in every designer. Both sizes were returned.

These Bikini Bottoms Were Perfect
My proportions aren't exactly normal (25" waist, 34A bra size, and a girl-who-really-eats rear end), so buying bathing suits is problematic. When it comes to bikini shopping, I usually buy size XS tops & M bottoms, which is exactly what I did, and these were perfect. I don't like to be "cheeky," so these were full-coverage with rouched sides, which is both a cute design element & flattering on the hips.

Not for petite women/just ok
I like the idea of Shoshanna for small/slim women with full busts, but this suit doesn't work. I am not short-waisted, but it was too long in the torso and baggy, too. Weird fit. MIGHT have worked on a slim, tall woman with a D-cup (I ordered the PS/D size).

Not the right fit for Shoshanna
I love Shoshanna dresses for special occasions - she always has the perfect styles for curvy figures. But this dress fit really strange. I ordered my usual size 4 but I had a hard time getting my top into this dress and the skirt hit at a weird point at the hip. When I zipped up the dress I felt like I could barely breathe. The 6 was way too big. The beading on the top is really cute but also very heavy.
