Awesome pricing fast delivery
Love the dress but was a bit tight around the top. I always wear a size 6 but this was a a bit small. I wear a 36 size B cup. I loved it though! It was great for my bachelorette party in Puerto Rico

Got so many compliments!
If you're small on top like I am, this dress is perfect. It's snug on top and comfy on the bottom. I got tons of compliments. The dress looks expensive and brand new! No complaints!

Great race track dress!
Loved this dress but the ribbing in the center is really uncomfortable. Definitely order a size up!

Just decided to rent this one for fun. It's super cute for a date or day out. I love the thicker material, detailing at the neck, and POCKETS! It was perfect for my petite size =)

Gorgeous dress that has seen better days
I wore this dress to an evening event with nude heels and received so many compliments! It runs a bit small. I usually wear a 2 or 4 in dresses but the 6 in this one fit perfectly (even being a strapless dress and I have a very small chest). The problem, and the reason for only 3 stars, is that this dress is USED and ABUSED! It looked like it had seen better days. The fabric has pulls in it, the lining in the front hangs down past the hem of the dress (which you can tell has been a problem for awhile since there was a line from someone trying to iron or press it up to make it shorter), and the zipper feels like it's about to just give up the fight and die at any moment. Unfortunately it was the only dress in my order that fit me, and it was still a pretty dress...in the dark where no one could look too closely at the details. Unfortunately this time my order included this dress and the KENNETH JAY LANE Sculpted Branch Bracelet which was super worn out and trashy looking (the gold coloring was rubbed off on most of the bracelet leaving the silver color underneath visible) so I left with a bit of a bitter taste in my mouth with this RTR rental. :(

pretty, classic dress!
i really enjoyed the dress. didn't realize exactly how full the skirt was though so it felt a little too dressy for the occasion i wore it to. i'm a pretty true size 4 so i went back and forth between ordering my second size as a 2 or 6. glad i went with the 2 because while the 4 fit, it was a little loose in some areas. definitely size down if you're in the same bind!

Made very well and had thick material but not too hot. Fit great but I hated how the skirt part of the dress folds in the middle I noticed in all the pics.

The dress was really pretty and comfortable.
I would suggest going up a size because it doesn't stretch! My overall experience was very good and I suggest you try Rent the Runway and order a dress. Another positive aspect is that if the dress doesn't fit, they will overnight you another dress for 12.95! I felt very pretty and comfortable.

Country Wedding
I wore this dress with cowboy boots for a country wedding. It was perfect for a not so formal country cheek look. It is a thick fabric. Kind of bubbled a little at the waist but otherwise was very nice.

Underwhelming dress for my bridal shower
I normally wear a size 2, but RTR only had the size 4 available, so I didn't have a back-up size. The 4 was a bit too big- I had to be pinned into the dress.- but it wasn't so big that I felt like it would fall off. I wore this to my bridal shower and the color and material worked out for what I wanted, but otherwise I didn't think this dress did much for me.

This dress was super flattering and was pretty good at staying in place for a strapless
Very reasonably priced rental for a great dress! Very flattering and had enough going on to not need many accessories. Loved the pockets too! Color was a little darker than I expected (was wearing for engagement party) but very flattering.

Not a Great Look
This dress was my original choice to wear for my Bridal Shower... luckily the week of the event my backup size (the 2) was not available to ship to me, so they had to send a different dress PLUS this one. I ended up wearing the backup dress! I am extremely petite but have a larger chest and the 0 fit perfectly everywhere except my Bust (It would not even zip!). If I would have had to wear the 2 I would have looked ridiculous because the bottom half of the dress is extremely LARGE. This dress is not form fitting whatsoever and you will look like a big cupcake in it if you are petite. I would definitely not recommend this dress to petite girls, and definitely size up if you have larger breasts!

Beautiful dress, flattering fit and POCKETS!
This dress is beautiful! I wore it to a daytime Food and Wine fest. The top is lined in satin to the waist which made it warm but it was also 85 degrees outside. Lots of compliments. Wish it were mine!

LOVE !!!
Loved this Lilly dress. Now I want to buy it ! Ran true to size for Lilly. I am small-busted, not sure how it would fit large-bust sizes. I am only 5'2 and it looked shorter on me than it does online. Highly recommend this fun party dress.

I feel like it ran a little small, but then again, i have a larger bust for someone whos 5'3". I do wish the hem was a little shorter but all in all it was a great dress. True to the photo.

Adorablet but runs small
I wore this dress for my engagement party and got so many compliments. I am usually a perfect 8 and the 8 was incredibly tight in the bust. I am a B cup, so not overly large up top. Luckily I ordered the 10, so that fit on top but was not as fitted as I would have liked at the waist. Probably best for small busted, but adorable!

Perfect Dress for Night & Day!
I wore this to a day time event and paired it with a cropped cream cardigan since it is winter (although unseasonably warm), and then I kept it on and rolled right in to a night out with friends, and this dress was PERFECT for both occasions! The fit is perfect and the gold makes it, in my opinion, very good for the holiday/winter season! I loved it so much I actually just ordered it from Lilly Pulitzer so I can own it!!

I have athletic shoulders and back muscles this dress brings out the best in you, walk with great posture ;)
I am 5'6 & 145 lbs. I do not have a big chest and did wear a strapless with this dress, if I would have worn the size 4 I feel like I could have got without a bra & it would not have felt loose at all. With that said the 6 was comfortable and only twice did I feel the need to ask my friends if my bra strap in the back was visible (both times it was not!). I wear dresses often so I am very comfortable standing out and being over dressed for occasions. I wore this dress to a brunch, a walk on the riverfront on a 60 degree day and was completely comfortable then to a classy dessert and wine tasting, all with wedge heels and a simple shrug from Target (Mossimo). This dress fell within 3 inches of my knee, much longer than on the 5'10 model, (thank God!) It's so classy I considered it for church. The fabric is thick and luxurious and like with all Lilly products- if you know how to carry yourself you will receive nothing but non stop compliments. I PURCHASED THIS DRESS NEW W TAGS FROM EBAY FOR 200$ !! You'll love it!

Everything, from receiving the package to wearing the dress to sending it back. It was all so easy!
This dress is spectacular! I have never worn a designer dress and I see what I have been missing. It is such a well made dress, from the stitching to the material that it is made from to the built in corset.I received so many compliments regarding the dress. Besides the fact that it is beautiful, it is a very comfortable dress to wear. And I love the pockets in the front of the dress. If I had the choice, I would have bought the dress! It does run a teensy bit small as I am usually a 0, but the bust part was too tight on me, so I went for the 2. Thank goodness RTR allows you to order a size up or down for free :)

Perfect for my Rehearsal Dinner!
I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner. The style and cut/color were perfect. It's a little more gold than I thought it would be, but I really liked that. The only problem was the fit. I have rented 2 other Lilly Dresses and I wore a 4 in both of them. I needed a 6 in this one because the chest area was so tight I couldn't zip up the 4 all the way. Because I had to go up to a 6, the dress was pretty loose everywhere else as the material doesn't stretch. It was still cute though and the right look for my wedding rehearsal dinner. I would size up in this dress but know that it might not fit correctly elsewhere depending on your body type!

Perfect!
This was my first RTR experience and I couldn't have been more impressed. I wore this dress for my husband's graduation dinner at a Michelin Star Rated Restaurant. The dress fit perfect! I was worried with the previous reviews that stated it ran small so I ordered a 4 as well, but the 4 was definitely too big. The dress was amazing quality; I was impressed with the lining and boning in the top, the fabric was sturdy. I wasn't anticipating the gold tones, thought it was going to be more khaki, but loved it. I received several compliments on the dress and felt like a princess in it. Very comfortable and the pockets were cute too. Would love to buy it!

The dresses arrived on time, both ready to wear, and it was sooo easy to return them! Plus I saved $250 by not buying it!
I loved this dress! I rented the size 4 and 6...they both zipped up but I would not have been able to eat dinner in the 4 haha. I received lots of compliments all night. I recommend this dress for a wedding, cocktail party or any formal event!
SiobhanDecember 21, 2012
Did you find the length a bit too short at all or was it a good length for a taller lady? I'm 6 feet and considering renting this dress. Thanks!
DanaDecember 21, 2012
I am 5'11" so the length was a little short, but not bad! I wore it to a yatch club cocktail party which is a pretty fancy event and it was great!

Dressing down for the office
I rented this dress for a date, and eventhough I love the fit, it's not right for the event I had in mind. The fabric has a sheen to it that doesn't show up in the model's photos (but does in the other review pictures), and this makes it better suited to a more formal event I think. I tried to customize it down with a nude belt and neon shoes and i'm not sure if that's quite worked. What do you think??

Great idea with the belt and shoes. You look beautiful and I hope the date worked out! :)

I felt like a princess at my bridal shower. Thank you renttherunway.com!
I rented this dress for my bridal shower and I felt amazing in it! I ordered it on short notice and couldn't get a backup size and the 6 was kind of tight in the bust area but fit great everywhere else. Because of the fit and the bones in the bodice I felt fine not wearing a bra with it. The material was beautiful and I LOVED that there were pockets in it. I got SO many compliments on it that I think I spent half of my day promoting Renttherunway.com! Thanks for another great experience...I'll be renting again soon!

How great I felt wearing this dress at my bridal shower!
I was very nervous this would not fit because the 8 was not available. I rented just the 6 and it was a close call but I was able to wear without a bra because of the boning in the top. I usually wear between a 6-8. I received so many compliments on this dress and it photographed beautifully. Very flattering as well!

Everyone loved the dress!
I got a lot of compliments while wearing this dress. I was self-conscious, however, because I have a large chest and needed a bigger size. I ordered a size 2 and a 4, which are the sizes I typically wear, but needed a 6 for the chest area, but I'm not sure how the 6 would have looked on my waist.

I loved this dress so much I ended up buying it after! I wore this to a launch party for a new store in the area and it was perfect for summer! It was easy to dance in, love the pockets and the gold/white combo was so summer chic! I could totally see this worn at a rehearsal dinner or at a outdoor affair!

Great fit, loved the pockets and the gold details. Wore this to a bachelorette party for my friend. The skirt was a perfect length for me (I'm 5'2") and it fit great everywhere else. Very sophisticated but also hot.

Cute dress but didn't wear it
I rented this as a possible dress for my rehearsal dinner. It was really cute and fit nicely, but I ended up going a different direction. The gold and white combo is really pretty - but it's casual in that it has pockets and a flirty look!

This dress was the perfect length and weight for our outdoor garden party last spring. I kept my accessories minimal, pairing it only with simple gold earrings, a cocktail ring and pink lips.

White Party Dress!
I rented this for a white party, but then the party got cancelled :( But I did wear it out to dinner with friends. The dress is very flouncy, but in a good way. The full skirt is romantic and fun. I didn't take any pictures in the dress. But I will rent it again and wear it to something fun soon. I got a ton of compliments. Classic and classy dress. The boning in the dress was slightly uncomfortable. But love the pockets!!

Lovely dress, very flattering!
I wore this dress for a wedding shower my fiance's family threw for me. The muted colors were perfect for a "bridal" look, but the details kept it interesting. It looks classy and well-made.I got SO many compliments about the dress, most people couldn't believe that such a dress was available to rent on short notice. I paired it with accessories from RTR as well.
