Great dress!

I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner and felt fabulous! The four was form fitting, but not too tight. I loved how it fit and how it looked. It is not too short either. Definitely would recommend!

Got tons of compliments. Loved the dress.

Wore it for my graduation from grad school. Kept unzipping my gown because I didn't want the dress covered! It was a little snug in the bust, but I'm a DD so that is normal. I normally where a size 4 and I wore the size 4 dress I rented. I got tons of compliments on this dress! The only negative is that the zipper dug into my back and was a little uncomfortable while I was sitting. Other than that, I loved it!

Stylist Review

A classic and flattering style by Lilly Pulitzer! Running true to size, we recommend sizing up for backup if you’re curvier and down if you’re smaller framed. With no stretch in the fabric, this piece is best for A-C cup sizes and can be worn with a standard bra. The shift dress is fitted throughout the midsection and hips. With a tighter fit and no stretch to the fabric, we recommend sizing up for fuller hips. At 5'1, this piece hits around my knee. This style is great for a casual summer party or work event. Pair it with heels and gold jewelry.

Dress was amazing!

The top was loose but I used pins for a proper fit. Other than that the dress was true to size! Dress was beautiful and I fell in love with the moment i saw the dress. I got a lot of compliments and the dress made my body look very slim. I was very happy with this purchase !

Wore this on my birthday - got tons of compliments!

It seem to run a bit snug near the top of my rib cage then a bit larger around the top of my chest. The zipper was a tiny bit of a struggle, but I was able to zip up the dress myself. Was super comfortable & I'd definetley wear it again!

High-quality fabric with nice embellishment!

I got this dress, brand new and still with the tags on. The fabric is high quality and I loved the gold details. It was perfect for a late spring dinner and evening musical. I was comfortable and could wear a regular bra with no issues.

Absolutely gorgeous dress.

I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and was so pleased. The dress arrived exactly as pictured and with the tags still on it, so I got to be the first wearer. I got a size 2 and 4, and didn't even try on the 4 because the 2 fit so well. The gold embroidery was absolutely beautiful as was the quality of the dress overall. I will say if you have a large bust you might have to size up because the top of the dress is pretty tight.

Cute dress.. Big in the chest

Length was great and fits tight at the hips and waist but top part is not made for smaller chests. Usually always a 2 in Lilly and the top of dress did not fit at all!!!!

Beautiful and classy

Great dress, loved the detail and how classy it made me feel. The length was great and overall was a super comfortable dress. I could wear a regular bra with it as well which was a bonus. I will definitely rent this again! I would suggest sizing down for your backup in this dress.

Very Pretty Dress!

Love the color of the dress and the details on the top half, very pretty. It fits pretty much true to size and the length was perfect if you're looking to wear something that isn't too short (I wore this to a graduation). I normally don't wear shift dresses, just because I have a very petite body, and I did feel like it was a bit big in the bottom half (chest area fit fine). So if you like the tighter feel or look, I would not rent this dress. If you like shift dresses, this dress is great!

Perfect for Graduation! The gold really pops!

The neckline was high enough to be appropriate for my graduation and low enough to give me a little tasteful cleavage. I didn't wear a bra because it was snug when I first put the dress on and gave me just the right amount of cleavage, but I would definitely recommend wearing a bra with this dress because over time the material stretches out and won't be as supportive by the end of the night. Really slimming, love this dress.

How easy it was to order the dress, get the dress on time, wear it, then ship it back with no hassle

The fit was perfect! I am 5'9" and 150lbs with a very muscular build, I ordered this dress in a 4 and it fit my small chest but larger butt. I wore this dress to a sport team banquet so it perfectly covered up those unwanted tan lines but provided a fitted outline to my body. It was also long enough that I didn't have to worry about anything "showing". The fabric was also a very nice texture and super comfortable.

Beautiful dress!

I didn't end up wearing this one, but would definitely recommend it for a wedding for any other event requiring a cocktail dress! It ran a bit small. If I were to order again I would go up a size.

I wore this for a red, white and blue themed party fundraiser, I received many compliments. The dress had a nice, classy length and fit to it. The only thing that would make it better would be having pockets. I would totally buy this dress!

Typical resort wear dress, if you are going for that look this is a safe bet.

I rented this dress for a beach wedding as a safe bet. The wedding was causal so I did not want to over do it. The material was nice and it was of good quality. The only reason it did not earn 5 stars is the extra material in the bust area, had to wear a black bra and it was still visible.

Worn out to dinner

This dress was weirdly tight on the bust, but the straps were too big at the same time. It made for an awkward fit. Wearing a bra without molded cups made it work, but I probably wouldn't wear it again.

Very pretty dress

The fabric and look of this dress is great! I thought it ran a bit small, especially if you're busty. I'm a 34DD and the 6 was a little tight across the chest. The armholes were a little big also. I couldn't find a bra that didn't show quite a bit. Nice, conservative dress overall.

Simple dress but beautiful.

I ordered this a back up for a wedding recently. I didn't wear it for the actual wedding but ended up wearing it for another event and loved it! It made me look very fit ( slimmed my waist and played up by smaller chest). The details around the neck line are what set this dress apart. I wore it more causal with gold flip flops but this was a showstopper

Definitely runs large. I would recommend ordering a size down. This well-structured piece is made of heavy quality material. No need for bra. Excellent back view too!

Perfect for a Friday summer wedding

Absolutely loved this dress. Wore it to a Friday wedding in the summer. Very comfortable. Nice detailing along the neck line. Would say runs on the smaller side. Ordered a 2 and a 4. Had shipping issues and ended up only receiving the size 4. Ended up fitting perfectly!

I received so many compliments on this dress! Fits like a glove, super comfortable, and cute! Great for a wedding shower, or day time event. The fit was true to size, a bit tight in the bust area, but other than that I loved it. I would definitely recommend renting this dress!

Absolutely gorgeous dress

I absolutely loved this dress, even though I didn't end up wearing it. Like all Lilly Pulitzer dresses, it was made extremely well, and the fabric was thick and very forgiving. The embroidery was gorgeous, and I love that you can wear a regular bra with it. The 8 was the tiniest bit snug in the hips on me, so since the fabric has no stretch at all, the 10 was more comfortable. If you're at all hippy, I would suggest sizing up. Even though I ended up wearing the other dress I rented, I will absolutely rent this one again!!

Runs a bit big

I rented this as a backup dress. Ended up wearing my first choice but still thought this one was cute. It is a thicker material and ran a little large. I'm normally a size 4 but would have worn the 2 bc it fit better. Can wear a regular bra with this dress.

The gold stitched print on the upper body of the dress is everything! The fabric is stretchy so it fit in all the right places. This dress is super fun and sticking to your normal size will work perfectly.

High quality, nice party dress

Dress was made of a high-quality, it fit true to size. Only complaint was top armholes are a little oversized, so bra may peek out with movement. Got a ton of compliments, felt like a million bucks! Rented for a wedding welcome party. Not dressy enough for a wedding in my opinion.

Perfect for Preakness!

I wore this dress for Preakness and it was perfect! Despite the chilly weather the dress fit beautifully and was very appropriate for the event. I'm usually between a size 4 and 6 but because I'm so tall (5'8") I was nervous it would be too short as most dresses are. I ended up wearing the 4 and it fit really well. I did not have a problem with the length. Definitely recommend this RTR!

Lovely well made dress

Loved the look and style of this dress, for me it was large in the top and straps but fit perfect in the hips and waist. Had to do a little creative pinning but then it was perfect. Fabric had no stretch but is well made and got several compliments. Length was perfect

Rented this for my bridal shower. Got a lot of compliments.

I'm 5'3" 140LBS Pear Shaped and wear 34C 27in waist 39.5in hips. My profile wont upload my details. But I wore the 6 which fit perfectly on top was just slightly snug on the bottom but not bad. I am very pear shaped so I wouldn't suggest this dress for people with large hips and very small bust. I ordered the size 6 and 8 and the eight was next to perfect on my hips but big on top. No give in the material but very comfortable. Can wear a regular bra! Would rent again.

Beautiful gold detail against dark navy !!! Perfect together ! I wore this to a first communion

I'm 5'4 and this dress hit just above the knee, the fabric is thick and very comfortable. The chest was a bit tight ( I'm a 34 D ) but not uncomfortable.The back is detailed similar to the front with a V-back. I was able to wear a regular bra which is nice. Both dresses sent were brand new with tags, and I received many compliments !
