Wore this for college graduation, was perfect for the event and fit very well.
I really have no complaints with this dress. It fit as it was supposed to, and was exactly what I needed.

STYLIST REVIEW
This beautiful blue shift is comfortable and perfect for any summer daytime event. The v-neck adds shape to this shift and is comfortable in the bust area even with a 34DD cup size. This fabric does not stretch but does run true to size. The straight cut still provides comfortable room throughout the midsection and hips, but we would recommend sizing up for the backup if you are curvier or bustier. This style should be worn with a strapless bra and at 5’5 reaches an inch above the knee. Accessorize this dress with some fantastic gold earrings and a bracelet along your favorite nude heels or dress it down with a pair of gold sandals.

Perfect for the occasion
I wore this to a fancy birthday brunch. It wouldn't have been a dress that I would purchase, but it was perfect for the event. Bonus! It had never been worn. Arrived to me new with tags! The color is vibrant and the material slightly heavy. I found it did wrinkle quite a bit (second pic from the end of the day). True to size, but if in between sizes, size down. Fabric doesn't have a ton of give but it didn't exactly fit like a glove and I'm a true 6.

Just average - didn't flatter my hourglass shape, but looked cute in photos
Rented this for a bridal shower in early April. The 2 was a bit small in the hips, the 4 was a bit large on top, but chose to wear the 4 for comfort. It was nice fabric and very cute design, but didn't do much for my shape. It's fine for a casual, summery event. Ultimately, thought I would like this more than I did.

Cute dress
This dress exceeded my expectations. The color was lovely in person, a bit darker than the photo of the model. It fit perfectly & was very comfortable. The dress still has the tags in it so I was excited to be the first to wear it.

Great color and flattering cut
Runs small. I'm usually between a 4 or a 6 (mostly a 4) and the 6 fits like a glove. The fabric is nice and flattering. It can be dressed down with flats or up with the right jewelry and heels. A great Unlimited choice.

The perfect Easter dress!
I loved this dress! Wore it for Easter which was an unusually hot April day and it was perfect. I'm 5'5' and it hit just above the knee. It was super comfortable and I was able to move around freely and still look great. I'd absolutely rent it again!

Great Easter dress!
Great length and fit. Nice thick fabric. The center detailing creates a slimming effect. I received a ton of compliments. I sized up 2 sizes for a looser fit, I've rented something from this designer before and remember the dress running small and it was perfect. I would rent this dress again!

Beautiful Color with Gold Detailing
This dress is BEAUTIFUL! Like all LP shift dresses though, order an extra backup size that runs larger if you are busty. Wonderful color, so many compliments! Will be purchasing this dress!

I must have gotten over 15 compliments from STRANGERS on this dress! It was magical.
It is true to size, with a little extra wiggle room. Classy length, but sexy color.

I loved this dress! The fit is great. I have very broad shoulders and the dress was a little tight up top but fit well everywhere else! The dress did wrinkle when sitting for a while. Other than that it was great!

Gorgeous sun dress for any occasion!
I was a little hesitant to rent this as I've rented Lilly Pulitzer dresses in the past and they have been too short and/or too tight. This dress however was perfect! The material is thick and vibrant blue with lovely gold detailing down the front. The 4 fit perfectly (maybe even a little roomy), although I would not have sized down. I wore this for a date night out while in FL and received tons of compliments. It was easy to move around in and was totally comfortable all evening. It was brand new with the tags on it when I received it which was a nice bonus! It was dressy and classy enough for a summer wedding, but also would work for something less formal. Was sad to send this back!

Fabulous!
I rented this beauty for a co-ed baby shower. I have to say that other than the mommy-to-be, I felt like the best dressed. I received a ton of compliments and I'm actually going to purchase the dress. It fit like a glove and the color in person is so amazing! Again, my whole experience with RTR has been great (except for those dumb plastic hangers that break every time). Can't wait to own this one!

Beautiful dress, well made, quality fabric.
Ordered a 6 and an 8 because I own a pair of Lilly shorts that are a 6 and they're kind of tight. The 6 fit well for my butt and thighs but was too large on top. Overall, the dress was perfect for my Spring Ball and I would rent again. The color is stunning and I don't normally wear bright colors.

...already bought this dress off Lilly Pulitzer's website after renting it!
Sorry for the shameless selfie BUT this dress fits true to size with a bit of stretch in the material. I wore this dress for a birthday dinner date and received so many compliments on the color and cut. I felt extremely comfortable and the length was appropriate but still sexy. I fell so in love with the dress, I already ordered it off Lilly Pulitzer's website. Hands down my fav Rent the Runway rental, yet!

perfect race day outfit
LOVED the dress for a day at the horse races, perfect fit, length and bright color. Texture/quality of fabric is great. If it isn't a great fit on you, it may be a little tricky, because the fabric doesn't stretch. Luckily, the cut was just right and I didn't need the stretch to "give" in certain areas.

Perfect dress for Spring or Summer day event
This dress looked even better than I expected! I received several compliments on the style and color, and I felt very comfortable in the thicker fabric and appropriate length to wear around family. I would rent this dress again, and may even buy it! I'm 5'5 with an hour glass figure, and currently vary between sizes 8-12, depending on the brand.

Worn to the Kentucky Derby, worked but not the best for body type.
I am a 5'1, 160lbs full bust. This is my first rent the runway experience, so I went off my skirt size from my suit and using Lily Pulitzer's true size to get an estimate of what size I should order. I typically wear a 14, but the "true-size" estimate from Lily Pultizer's site was a 12 so I got that as my back up. For my height, both sizes were to long but thats something I usually care to much about. I ended up wearing the 14. The dress was too big for me everywhere other than the bust which was a little too tight but I was still able to wear. It was not the most flattering for my midsection but was not the worst thing i've tried on. The color was great. Overall, I probably would not get this dress again.

Perfect for a casual summer wedding
I wore this dress to a more casual summer wedding and it was perfect! The color is bright and beautiful and the gold detailing went great with gold espadrille wedges. I also loved how the straps/neckline are a little unique. I usually gravitate toward more A-line dresses because I don't like dresses that are tight on my thighs/booty but this dress was really comfortable and flattering - a similar fit to other Lilly dresses.

I wore this to my sister casual rehearsal dinner at a waterfront restaurant in Florida and it was perfect. Felt formal because of the fabric but still a casual vibe. The fit was perfect and the color was so bright and fun.

Fantastic dress and even BETTER customer service
I rented this dress for a wedding and had it shipped to our hotel. Unfortunately I was given the wrong shipping address from the hotel and my dress was unable to be delivered. Amanda in Customer Service went above and beyond to help me sort out the mess AND overnighted a new dress for me. The dress fit great - I am usually a 4 in RTR dresses but a 2 in Lilly dresses. Be warned, it does wrinkle easily especially when you sit so make sure to steam or iron it beforehand. Great dress, great color and love the little sparkle that the detailing has!

Bright & classy!
I rented this for a spring wedding, and the size 0 fit perfectly. It WAS a little wrinkled, and I was scared to iron it. The material is thicker than you'd think. Really pretty blue! Lots of compliments. :)
