Great dress!

This is a great dress! Easy to wear, looks great and nice colors! RTR sent me an email the day before receiving my order informed me that the size 0 I ordered would not be ready in time for my event. They made it up to me by sending a dress that was similar to the dress I ordered. Very nice gesture, but I had my eye on the Candy dress. I wore the size two and it fit fine but the 0 would have been perfect. Can't say a anything bad about my experience but I wish I could have received the correct size. The dress is a light pink with gold. Will fit and look good at any body type. Received lots of complementing and I wore it to a high school graduation.

A perfect baby shower dress

Very pretty without being too sexy. Hosted a baby shower for 80 people in this dress. I was best dressed and got a ton of compliments- nothing new for my RTR outfits. Dress was VERY loose around the waist, but meant I could breathe easily and move around for the most part. Shoulders were a bit tight when I raised my arms. Was worried the material would be too thick but it is actually very breathable and soft. The fit is very flattering for a daytime event without giving away the goods. The future grandparents approved!

Very classy!

I am usually a size 8 or 10 depending on the dress but 8 was unavailable so I ordered 10 and 12 based on other reviews to size up. The 10 was pretty loose on my shoulders but otherwise it fit well and I think a size smaller would've been tight when sitting down. Loved the dress itself though!

Lots of compliments. It was unique, classy and fun to wear.

Great dress. The wedding hosts requested guests wear their colors...blush and or gold. This dress captured both although the pink part is very pink (not blush). It really didn't feel too pink once on and it photographed well. True to size. I have long legs and I was worried it would be too short but it wasn't. I felt comfortable and it was fine for dancing too.

First RTR and will rent again for sure!

Dress was great and received lots of compliments! As some other reviewers noted, I also found the arms were a little snug and the dress rides up a bit when sitting. This was my first RTR and overall am very pleased!

It was a beautiful dress

I loved the dress and got complements all night. I loved that I could wear a bra with it. The dress was a little short for my liking, but the 4 was just too big for me to wear. It was an outside ceremony and I was sweating in the dress, but once inside I was good.

The dress was beautiful and the customer service was great! I was able to rent for an extra day

Overall fit was great. It was a little tricky to sit in but that was the only downside. I received so many compliments on the dress. Perfect for a summer wedding and I would rent it again for sure. Couldn't have been happier!

Gorgeous dress! More pink in person. Tighter in the bust and looser on the bottom. Runs big. Worn for my homecoming dance and it photographs beautifully.

It was great for an engagement party, fit pretty much like all Lily dresses- a little small- so I sized up and it was perfect. I got tons of compliments and an excuse to buy gold shoes :)

So many compliments!

This dress fit like a glove. The pink undertones were much more pink than I was expecting but still looked great. The sleeve caps were a bit tight; I couldn't life my arms straight up above my head. Id recommend this dress highly!

Beautiful pattern, color, and material. Received many compliments on this dress!

I wore this dress for my engagement party and it was perfect! I was nervous because I rented this last minute and RTR didn't have my size available (size 10), so I had to rent a size larger. I am glad that I rented a larger size because it was a bit tight around my bust area but fit perfectly everywhere else. This dress photographs beautifully and it is definitely perfect if you are looking to stand out at any occasion.

I rented a dress for the Derby! It also happened to be my birthday.

This was a really cute dress that I rented to wear it to the Derby, but unfortunately, I did not wear it because it fit big on me. I ordered a size 2 and 4, and even the 2 looked big on me. I've never worn Lilly Pulitzer dress, so I wasn't sure if her dresses run really small or big, but I probably could've fit perfectly in the 0. I feel like the 2 just sat on my body, and didn't really show any of my curves, but I did like the sleeves.. I felt like they highlighted my arms.

Cap sleeves ruined it

The photo is misleading and is the only rental from RTR where I was left underwhelmed. I love the material and print BUT the cap sleeves ruined this dress. The sleeves were far too long and I had to jerry rig and safety pin the sleeves to get the dress to fit. Thankfully I have long hair that covered up my ghetto tailoring. If I owned this dress it would have to get altered before it could be worn.

Sorority Preference Day

This is my first RTR. I rented for the preference day at the University of Arizona (Bear Down) I'm a very small person to begin with. I normally wear a junior's size zero/double zero, so I knew this dress wasn't going to fit perfectly. I added a belt to sort of tighten it up, but had to keep adjusting it since there was soo much extra fabric. I'm a 32B and this dress was extremely loose in the chest area for me. I ended up wearing three(!) bras with some extra bra pads shoved in just to sort of fill out the top. I also had to use fashion tape to smooth down the neckline. The material was super easy to walk in, especially in 100 degree Arizona heat, it didn't even show a lick of sweat! One thing is that the pink is a lot more vibrant in person than when photographed, I attached a photo that shows the "true" pink. I only mention this because I really liked the pink in the photos and had my nails painted to match and that just didn't happen with the color the dress actually is. I did love the gold details and they shine in even the tiniest bit of light! I loved the cap sleeves, they look so nice on me, but I know lots of women dislike them. I'm only five feet tall and was extremely happy to see that the dress didn't reach all the way to my knees. It does ride up a bit when sitting down, but I preferred that. Also, I paired with very simple accessories: a dainty light pink belt with a gold bow clasp, two small gold bracelets, simple gold rings, and gold studs. I also work strappy nude cocktail heels. The dress really speaks for itself. I received lots of compliments from the sorority women. Overall I loved this dress and would have loved it even more it had fit properly. I wouldn't recommend to someone who is very petite like me, but it is easy to manage and I made it work. If I actually owned this dress, I would get it altered to a very tight fitting First Lady kind of dress. I only gave it four stars because the color is so different in person.

I got a ton of compliments when I wore this dress! loved it!

this dress was perfect to wear to homecoming however I ordered sizes 2 and 4 when I should have ordered a 0. It was a little baggy around my waist and hips area. But other than that I get a ton of compliment on it!

the dress was just eh.

This dress ran wayyy too big. I am usually a 4, and even the 2 was way too big. A 0 probably would have been perfect. Otherwise, this was a very comfy dress. It was much more pink and gold then it looked in the picture. I thought it would be a baby pink, but it was a darker pink and a really shiny gold. I think it would have been a very gorgeous, flattering dress if I had gotten the right size. but overall, it was just eh.

Wore it to a Special occasion dress. Got it for free with RTR pro.

It was a pretty dress, yet I didn't think it had a wow factor as much as in the photo of the RTR website. I wore it and it was good. This was not a dress that I would be excited to rent again, but I would wear it again. I usually wear a 0, but could've worn a 00. It was a bit big on the bust because I don't have much and the stomach area was big and made me look like I had a belly which I don't have.

Loved the metallic print!

This dress is perfect for a daytime event like a wedding shower or summer wedding! The material does not have any stretch to it, but because it is more of a shift body I would recommend sizing down as I felt it ran a little large. It was very comfortable to wear, and was very lady like!

Beautiful fabric!

This Lily dress had the prettiest print & I got tons of compliments... But... I have a 34c/d chest & this dress was insanely tight in that region. Even though this dress was very tight in the chest, it was super loose through my waist. It is a shift dress so you can get away with it- but I got very good at pulling it tighter for photos so it didn't look so baggy! This pretty print is for sure this garments saving grace!

First experience, loved it, but wish there was a 00 option!

As with all Lilly dresses, this dress is gorgeous, fun, and sophisticated! Overall, the dress runs large. If you are a thin body type, this dress can give you that pregnant belly pooch look as there was definitely extra room in the stomach area. If I rent again, I would try and choose a dress that runs on the smaller size, since the 0 was more baggy than I prefer.

Loved the color of this dress! The pink and yellow are much brighter in person than in pictures. Unfortunately, I did not get to wear this because the 2 was much too big and my backup size 0 was unavailable.

Fit great on my petite frame!

This was my first rental experience and I was really skeptical because I am very petite and short (4'9" and 100lbs). I was sure this dress wouldn't fit me but it did! It fit very well and the length was perfect on me. I loved this dress!! I liked the metallic on it which looked more gold than what the picture looks like. It wasn't too snug that I had to worry about bulges but I wore spanx anyways. I paired it with gold sandals and a cute gold metal box purse. I wore it for a wedding at a church and reception at a golf course. It was perfect! I got plenty of compliments!

Misfit dress - couldn't wear - too bad!

Despite the beautiful material and cut, I was unable to wear this dress for the intended occasion. I normally wear a 0 but in this dress my boobs were suffocating and I couldn't lift my arms because of the way the sleeves are cut. The 2 was baggy, especially under the boob area and looked even worse in photos. Super disappointed! Luckily RTR has excellent service and rushed out a new style ASAP!

Wished it fit

I really wanted to love this dress but the fit just wasn't right. I had rented it for the baptism of my goddaughter. The fit was very tight in the chest area and the only way to accomodate that was to pull the dress up, which then made the shoulder area huge. Dress has a very metalic finish.

Sparkly, Elegant, A "Must!"

I wore this for my Rehearsal Dinner, and paired it with the Kate Spade Mr & Mrs clutch. The dress was juuuuust the right amount of sparkle and pink, without being incredibly flashy. It formed to my figure (I had rented both the 8 and the 10 and decided at the last minute to go with the 8), but I also could have worn the size up if I had wanted a little more room. It was an appropriate length for the family attending, but also showcased my personality with some pink and sparkle (as I had worn white dress after white dress for all other pre-wedding events). I definitely recommend this eye-catching dress!

Way too small

This dress was entirely too small for a curvy figure. I usually wear a size two and neither one of the dresses fit me. ( I ordered a size 2&4). If you have any sort of curves on your backside, I would go up at LEAST a full size. The print/pattern is super cute, but the sizing seems extremely off and the material does not stretch at all.

Dress fit overall, but did not end up wearing to the event.

Very tight throughout the rib cage/chest/shoulders. Fabric does not give, at all. (I'm an aerialist, so I've got a fair amount of muscle in my back and shoulders.)

Graduation dress approved!

A conservative, stylish dress that's a crowd pleaser. The pink undertones (not usually seen in photos, but managed to get a good one of what the dress actually looks like) are a great touch to the white and gold. Fell about 3 1/2 inches above my knee. Tight in the bust area (34D) so I wore an unpadded bra. Fits nicely elsewhere.

Perfect for an outside, evening gala - fundraising event for a fabulous charity. Thank you!!

It fit great - no issues or problems. I had ordered a 6 with a 4 for backup, but the 4 fit perfectly - which made me very happy!
