love this dress!
I loved wearing this Lilly dress. it is cute and classy. the color is really nice. its short on me but I am 5'7" and wasn't so short that it was inappropriate. such a fun dress, it can be work for day or night event. I wore it to a new years eve wedding that was less formal /country theme. but this would be great for summer too. I would buy this !

This dress was perfect for the horse race I attended!
I ordered a size 12 and size 14 because I usually have to size up for Lilly. The 12 actually ended up being a little big on me, but it made the dress comfortable to walk around in. I received so many compliments on the dress. I recommend this for any occasion!

Wedding for early fall
I rented this dress for a fall wedding. Fortunately, there is a Lily store at my local mall so I tried on a similar style to insure that I would order the correct size for me. I ordered a size down as a backup as well, but decided to go with the bigger size. The material was thicker than I had anticipated. I received plenty of compliments and I was pleased with my decision to rent this dress. 10/10

Flattering, flirty, fun
This was my first RTR order, and the dress was everything I hoped for. Very flattering even with a large chest, although perhaps a little too sexy for a family event. I wore this for my sisters graduation, and got tons of compliments. Love this dress, she wanted to steal it too!

Great dress, a little short
Liked the dress, I rented it for work, but it was little to short so I wore it for a night out with a jacket and booties.

Cute beach option
I wore this to a beach wedding in Mexico (no shoes required!) and it fit the bill great. Most people were in colorful maxi dresses, so it was nice to have something a bit different. I agree with other reviewers that the trim detail is has far more sparkle in person, but that makes it easy to wear minimal accessories - plus there is a nice mix of gold, silver, champagne and white to play with. I did not find this too short (I'm 5'6" ish), and the torso length was perfect for me, although I run a bit short in that area. Overall this skimmed the body without hugging (great for dancing and eating!) except in the chest. This was actually tight enough for me to not wear a bra, but I have a big chest. This also meant that the front V and straps gapped a bit up top, but not so much that it looked odd. Fabric was thick enough to provide structure but not heavy. It did give a bit through out the night, and showed moisture "stains" in the high humidity... fortunately something easily fixed with a hair dryer!

Comfortable and classy
I rented the size 4 and 6. The 4 fit but I had difficulty zipping it up bc of my bust size. So I wore the 6. Fit is comfortable and loose so it's very forgiving if you want to indulge in more drinks and food for the night. Pretty dress.

Fancy, looked great, comfortable!
It felt a little short on me in the church- the bottom fell just at my finger tips- so I kept my navy paschmina on while we were in the church. At the reception I was ready to party! I wore a minimal necklace with fun earrings and bracelets. It paired great with the flats I brought to dance in and I was comfortable the entire night! I LOVE this dress! If RTR had an option to buy out like Stitch Fix I would have!

Sexy and dressy but not too formal.
I wore this for my birthday dinner at a french restaurant. It was dressy and sexy without being too formal. I usually wear a 10/12. This dress was only available in a 12 and it fit perfectly. I would size up for your back-up size.

I would recommend going a size up - the dress is pretty form fitting and short. I wore it to a wedding in the hamptons and it was perfect though!

This dress made me feel beautiful!
Definitely get your second size a size smaller than what you'd normally wear! I fit into both dresses just fine but the larger one was definitely more box-y and not as flattering as the smaller size. However, the only con I could find to this amazing dress would be it does run a tad short. Do you may prefer wear the larger one to give yourself more length. Quality of this dress was excellent, such a great experience! Wish I could have kept it!

Cute Dress, More Glittery than Expected
This dress did the trick. The neckline is lovely but it is very metallic on the neckline. Still a very nice cut. Sat well, although a tad bit short. Material does not stretch.

Hard to go wrong with a lilly. It can run a tad on the short side if you are tall.

Great dress for a summer wedding by the sea!
I rented this dress for a family wedding reception. My cousin eloped and then had a big party at the beach-I wanted something fun and summery that I could dance in and this dress did not disappoint! I am typically a 6 but it was unavailable that weekend, I made the 8 work. The straps were a little loose/long but snug in the right places like the hips. I did have to wear a strapless bra. Overall nice thick fabric, a little worn, but looked nice in pictures.

LOVE!!
I rented this for my friends rehearsal dinner. It was a VERY warm day in August and we were outside for a while and the dress was comfortable. I thought it fit true to size and ended up wearing the 6 instead of the 8 only because I thought the 8 was a little stretched out from being worn a lot. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Fit true to size and was way more comfortable than I predicted. It was short but I'm 5'4 and I felt very good in it I didn't think it was TOO short. Beautiful color and style, I was very happy with it and I'd rent it again!

Super cute, super versatile, one of my favorites to date. Order in your size + one smaller.
I LOVED this dress. It was only available in a 4 at the time, which I thought would be ok since that's my usual size these days. I could tell it was a hair too big, especially since I'm a little small up top, but figured it would be OK. It has a great straight fit that's really forgiving in the summer, but I really needed the 2. The dress is cotton with NO stretch, so it was pretty baggy by the end of the night. That being said, I received so many compliments and would probably buy it in a 2 if I could.

I am only 5'1 and the length and fit were great. I wore this for a summer wedding and got lots of compliments. I am a 4-6 usually in dresses, the 6 wasn't available but the 4 fit fine. Did not want to return it- thanks rent the runway!

Shows off long legs
A lot of reviews for Lily Pulitzer shifts say that they are too short, especially for tall girls. Not true. I am 5'8 with a long torso and legs, and if you size up it's fine, it wasn't tight, so that kept it classy. I wore with flats and minimal jewelry. Gorgeous and tasteful.

Loved this dress!
I rented this dress for a outdoor summer wedding. It ran a little large but was very comfortable. The fabric wrinkled at the waistline by the end of the night but still looked great. Very flattering and no need to adjust. I am definitely renting this one again!
