Birthday rental.
I rented this dress to wear to dinner for my birthday and it was a perfect dress for the occasion. I wish I could have rented a 10 because the 12 was a little big, but it was ok. Very comfortable and flattering, and the colors are so bright! I got a lot of compliments on this dress; I would definitely rent it again!

SO frickin cute! Can be dressed up or down.
I wore this on two occasions: The first occasion was during a food festival. I paired it with blue high top chuck Taylors and tied a denim longsleeve shirt around the waist. Sounds like a weird combo, I know..but I got SO many compliments on the entire ensemble. The second occasion was for Easter Sunday. I paired it with light grey wedge boots and pearls. Again, tons of compliments. The dress was very flattering and the material was thick enough to cover any mid section flaws most of us have. :)

Huge!
Rented this in my regular size along with another lily in size 4 and this one was gigantic! The other dress fit really well so I'm not sure what was up with this one. Looked like I tried on a pretty bag.

Vibrant colors, excellent length
I adored this dress! The other reviews are correct, it does run a tad large. I wore the 8, but definitely could have sized down to the 6 if I had ordered it! Received multiple compliments all day. I loved that it was long enough for my tall frame. The pineapple zip closure is just the cutest detail!! I would buy this dress in a heartbeat.

Pop of color!
This dress is amazing. It was my second Lilly rental and I loved it! I wore the 6 and had room to spare. I wore it to a wine tasting bachelorette party. I knew I would be on and off a bus all day and I needed to be comfortable - this did the trick! The colors are bright and cheery. It was cold and rainy, so I paired it with a denim jacket and a bright purple scarf.

No joke - it really runs large!
I can't tell you the last time I wore a 4 in anything, but even the 4 was a little big. Size down - it is a great, comfy dress! Very bright and perfect for Spring and Summer.

Love this Lilly for Spring!
I wore this dress for a school Spring Performance event. I fit is like a traditional Lilly, fitted in the waist and hips so I wore the 10. Not a lot of stretch but perfect for the Florida weather.

Cute Lilly; fit was on point.
Color was a bit faded and fabric is easy to wrinkle so it arrived with wrinkles. Fit was on point for typical Lilly.

Typical Lilly shift fit - slightly boxy and large - but I'm used to it and really like the colors of this dress.

Perfect colors!
If you are looking for the perfect, bright, shift dress, you found it! This dress was exactly what I wanted. I was surprised the 4 was too big on me. I found that a belt made it work better with my curves. Very comfortable. I wore it all day!

LOVE! So comfy! So bright!
This dress is beyond comfortable, super bright colors (that made my body look tan), and super lightweight. I highly recommend this purchase. It's casual enough to be worn as a "sun dress", but dressy enough for other occasions as well! Worn here for Easter Sunday! High recommend. Love a good Lily dress!

Way too big!
I usually wear a size 6 but the size 6 was HUGE and the size 4 was still way too big to wear! Next time I will order a size 2 in this style.

Beautiful and comfortable
I wore this dress for my sorority's formal. If you are large chested, I would recommend sizing up for your backup! I ordered a size 6 (my size) and 8 and ended up wearing the 8 for comfort. I could have squeezed into the 6, but it was really tight on my chest. I would definitely wear this dress again !

Nice vacation piece
The dress is perfect for a tropical vacation. I'm only giving it 3 stars because it ran very large. Instead of a sexy, sunkissed look, I felt like a mom. I attempted to use fashion tape to make it shorter but that was a complete fail. I would rent again but in a smaller size.

Stylist Review!!
This is such a fun dress! You'll definitely be standing out with this dress in any event you wear it too! The dress was very big for me in the chest, so would work nicely with someone who has slightly larger bust. My hips are larger and was slightly tight, but still comfortable. It's best to size up if you have larger hips. Can't wait for the summer to wear this dress!

Bright Colors! Perfect for summer wedding season!
I loved wearing this dress for a summer wedding. The sizing definitely runs a tad large. I am typically a 6/8 - I ended up wearing the 6 but absolutely could have gone down to the 4! I wished I had ordered the 6 and 4 instead for my backup. Overall the fit is super cozy and the print is classic bright Lilly P! Thanks RTR!

Great Colors
Loved the colors of this dress, was perfect for a sunset cruise in Aruba during my honeymoon. I wish i had ordered the size 4, the 6 was very large and boxy, no shape at all. I had to pin the sides. I did receive a lot of compliments on the colors. very lightweight.

Pretty dresss, but didn't work!
I have slightly large hips and, upon reading the reviews, I thought sizing up would help. Wrong. It was so tight I could barely get it around me. I was so bummed out. I would recommend sizing up, and maybe reconsidering if you're a strong pear shape like me.

Vibrant and fun dress
I wore this to my baby shower, after sizing up (about 4 sizes). It was perfect. The colors were so bright and the dress was adorable. Even though the fabric has no give, sizing up enough worked, and it fit without looking like "maternity" wear.

Perfect brunch dress
I wore this to a beachside brunch in Florida and loved it! A lot of the reviews recommended sizing down, however when I did I noticed it fit very tight around the armpit. Other than that, I was obsessed with all the bright colors and the fit of the dress! I 100% recommend this. The length was perfect, too.

Amazing color!
I rented this for my future sister-in-law's bridal shower. I usually shy away from bold prints, but it was end of summer and outdoors; I decided to step outside my comfort zone. The 4 fit, but was tight when I would bend over or sit, so I went with the 6. The 6 was overwhelmingly boxy so I paired it with a belt. I am very curvy, and without the belt, this dress completely took away my shape. I did receive a ton of compliments and overall liked this dress.

Vibrant print- but runs HUGE
I usually wear a 12 in lilly shift dresses. I could have probably comfortably fit in an 8. This cut is extremely generous so sizing down couldn't be recommended more.

Received lots of compliments! Great value
This is not a form fitting dress, it was a little big up top. I ordered up based on the reviews. I found it to be fairly true to size since it was not fitted. I wore this to a wedding rehearsal dinner and received many compliments. I was worried it was going to be too short (I am 5'8") but it was perfect.

The Splash of Color!
This dress is AHH-mazing!! First off, the colors are stunning. I put "true to size" because I'm normally a 6 and I rented the 6 and it fit well. The dress probably technically runs large but I liked the comfortable somewhat loose fit - I think most Lilly dresses run like that. You may want to size down if you can pull off sizes down often. I'm a 6 but some 6's are tight so a 6 that runs "large" is perfect for me. Anyways, I may buy this dress because it's so amazing. I got at least 5 or 6 compliments from total strangers (all women). It stands out. Rent it.

Comfortable and loved colors
The dress fit great, if you have been having trouble with some of the dresses being too tight in the bust area (40DD) this dress will fit. The dress even could go on over your head if your worried about getting it zipped up by yourself. The colors were great. I got many compliments on it, people said it reminded them of the beach and being on vacation. It does stretch out some through the hip areaifyou aregoingto be sitting a lot. It was more flattering than I expected it to be. I would rent this dress again.

Fit well, I'm usually a 4 or 6 and based on the reviews that it fit looser I ordered the 2 and 4 (the 6 was unavailable for dates requested). The 4 fit perfectly- loved the bright colors, lots of compliments!

True shift. Not "fitted" anywhere.
