Made for graduation parties!
The fit was true to size however may fit weirdly on curvier girls since it is a shift style dress. My dresses were both brand new with tags still on. I got compliments all night from people of all ages, proving the style and fit perfect for a graduation party. I wish I didn't have to give this dress back!

Fun dress for the horse races
I rented this dress to wear the horse races. It was just ok, I would give 3.5 stars if I could but decided to round up. The print was nice, loved the blues and the patterns that wove through it. The fabric wasn't too heavy for south Florida either. The fit was just not my favorite. The 2 was a tent on me so that wasn't an option. The 0 was much better it advance warning, it's short!! Also, the 0 had a lot of extra fabric around the waist as well but it photographed nicely. I think this is just hope Lily dresses fit though, more of a straight fit instead of fitted to the body.

Very fun dress! Lots of compliments!
I ended up wearing both he 4 and 6! The 4 fit more snug and was perfect for a 4th of July party I went to. The 6 worked for a more formal boat party the next day (the 6 was longer and looser). This usually happens with Lilly dresses-the 6 is always a tad too big and the 4 is just a little snug. I loved the dress tho and got a bunch of compliments! Will definitely rent again!

Comfortable and adorable dress
This shift style Lilly dress fit better than others I've rented in the past. The arm holes didn't cut into me, they were comfortable and let me move. I thought this may have run a little large for a 4 but I was comfortable all day so I didn't mind. It's a shift style so don't rent this if you want to show off any curves or have shape. If you want to be cute and comfortable all day in a colorful dress though, than this one is great.

Short and sweet!
This dress was fun to wear for a coffee date with a friend. Love the colors and shorter fit. It's a bit boxy. I would have given it 5 stars if it nipped in at the waist more. Love being able to wear a normal bra. Fabric isn't stretchy but is comfortable.

Perfect for spring and summer
Beautiful, upbeat print. I loved it. I wore this to a family birthday party but it would be perfect for Easter or a golf event. The size 2 fit but the length was too short for me, (I'm 5'9) so I wore the size 4.

Great for an outdoor rehearsal dinner
Rented for a first night out post-baby (6 months old), and I felt awesome :) The size 4 fit, but it is a short dress, so I felt more comfortable with a little more room in the 6. Most people at the rehearsal dinner were wearing shorts and t-shirts, but I still didn't feel overdressed because it was easily dressed down with flip flops! Loved it!

Colors are much brighter in person!
I loved loved this dress! Unfortunately crazy April weather didn't allow me to wear it out for our date night. But I ended up wearing it to church with a denim jacket. It would be perfect for a tropical vacation getaway! The colors are so vibrant!

Wanted to wear this so badly.
I ordered this dress for my graduation but the only day it could come was Friday and the graduation was Saturday, I ordered it anyways. The most disappointing thing was when I came home from work with an email saying it was delivered it was no where to be found. I called UPS and RTR right away. RTR customer service was going to offer me a new dress but it wouldn't come in time for my event. They completely credited my credit card. They were extremely nice and helpful. Thank you RTR for standing behind your service. Still sad I couldn't wear the dress though.

Great spring/summer dress
I rented this for what I thought was a fancy brunch but ended up being my surprise engagement! I rented the 0 and 4 and ended up wearing the 4, it was a little big and I would've preferred the 2 but unfortunately it wasn't available. Overall it was a cute dress that I got many compliments on.

Pretty & Fun!
This dress was so comfortable! It did run small I must say! Usually I am a size 4 and had to wear the 6. There was one small stain on the back of the dress but it didn't take away from the beauty of the dress!

Bright colors
I usually wear an 8, and I know Lilly can run weird so I ordered a 10 and a 12 as backup. The 10 sort of fit me but it was still pretty big. I would have been more comfortable in an 8. I loved the bright colors of this dress though, it was really pretty!!

Perfect subtle Lilly
I loved this dress!! Wish I could have owned it. It was comfortable and the perfect length for me. Picked this dress as it is one of the more subtle Lilly patterns and it was perfect for a backyard party/wedding.

Wrinkles very easily!
Wore this to dinner one night. Stood up from dinner and thus is what it looked like. Great dress otherwise, but unfortunate that it wrinkles so easily!

Little Blue Dress
This dress is definitely on the shorter side, but it's sliming and perfect for a spring/summer party. Can be dressed up or down. Wrinkles quickly when sitting though.

I was unable to wear the dress because although it fit in the body, it was much too short. A shame, for I adored the print.

Pretty in Lily
This dress is so pretty! Very comfortable yet chic. I just love Lily patterns especially this one! With my post baby bod my chest is huge and still are my hips. It seemed to be forgiving with my baby belly. The hips fit a little tight with the size 6, I probably could have worn the 8 and it would have looked fine too, but possibly would have been large in the arm holes as I have a small frame up top.

Beautiful color and pattern
I loved the material and bright print on this dress. It was perfect for a garden wedding. The shift style was not that flattering on my figure but I still liked it enough to wear it. It's definitely short so beware of that.

Perfect beach baby shower dress
Loved the soft colors and the ease of this dress. The hem is a little short as I am 4' 11" and never have an issue of a dress being short, this one would definitely be a tad short for longer legged girls. Loved this dress!

I LOVED THIS LILLY!!
The dress was a little shorter than I expected which made me go up from a size 0 to a 2. Overall, this dress is so comfy, and fits like a glove. This is my second Lilly dress I've rented and I just adore them. I got so many compliments and seriously considered keeping it!!! Just loved everything about it. :)
