Love it!
This dress is such a gorgeous color! Super comfortable, too. I wore it during the day at an outdoor party - definitely the perfect little sundress! Was getting compliments all day, definitely a show stopper! The bust seems to run a little tighter than the waist/hip area, but as a whole the dress fit perfectly and I would definitely rent it again.

So cute
I wore this dress to Carolina Cup and it was perfect. It was really flattering and the color is great. A little more green than pictured - it looks more turquoise here, but it was still pretty!

Very flattering
I ordered a 2 a size 4, and ended up in the 2 because the 4 had awkward gaping at the back of it when it was all zipped up. I don't normally wear such a small dress size, and this was a bit tight at the hips and chest, but still comfy. There is no stretch to it, but it was very comfortable and very pretty. Everyone thought it was such a cute dress!

What kind of shoes did you wear with it?
RTRMay 3, 2012
Hi Danielle, we recommend a nude or white shoe if you're trying to dress it up!

Receiving dress on time, great fit, lots of compliments
I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner and received many compliments from guests about how fitting it was for the event. I found the dress comfortable and was pleasantly surprised to find that the size six fit perfectly (depending on the designer, I wear a 6 or 8). Perfect for a casual, beach setting.

Very cute but runs large!
Rented this dress for a bridal shower and the dress was perfect for the party! I typically wear a size 6 (5'6" and 130) but have a rather small waist and the size 6 was gigantic! The 4 was way too big on me as well and I ended up hemming the dress with magic tape and also safety pinning the sides to give me more of a waist...great rent but definitely order down a size if getting 2 different sizes

In love with Lilly
I am officially in love with Lilly Pulitzer and so thankful that RTR introduced us :) This dress is, literally, the only dress I have rented that is exactly as described. That is not to say that other dresses I have rented arent as described--but usually there is a tiny detail or slight color variation to what you see or read in reviews. Not this dress: The fit was very standard, the color is a perfect bright turquoise, and the length is just as it looks. I would suggest a cross back bra as straps peek out just a tiny bit. Definitely recommended. I wore with pearls and beige colored peep toe wedges. Perfect garden party attire.

Runs HUGE!!!
I was so excited to wear this dress to a southern wedding, but was disappointed to find that it runs several sizes large. I rented two different Lily Pulitzer dresses, and was able to wear the "Flowers of Venice" dress in size 6. This dress in size 6 felt like a size 10 or 12. It's not fitted in the waist at all. I couldn't even safety pin it to make it work, it seemed to fit like a Mumu, and not at all how it looks on the model. My advice would definitely be rent 2 sizes smaller than what you normally wear!

Perfect for post-wedding brunc
I rented this dress for brunch that rounded out a wedding weekend. It was the perfect amount of polish, while still being comfortable and casual- I wore it with flat Jack Rogers sandals and stud earrings. The beading around the neck took care of the rest. Typical of Lilly Pulitzer dresses, they are a bit roomier than others, which was perfect after a long weekend. But if you're unsure, pick your regular size and one size down. Also, the hem fell a few inches above my knee (I'm 5'4" ish)- it's on the longer side.

Beautiful summertime dress!
This dress is beautiful and versatile. I wore it to a baby shower but would have felt comfortable wearing it out to any occasion - wedding, a nice dinner, church, whatever! The color pops and is perfect for summertime. The print is tasteful, and the jewel embellishments make for effortless elegance. Two thumbs up.

Watched the 4th of July fireworks with my husband in this beautiful dress!
This was my first time wearing a Lilly Pulitzer dress and I loved it. You can't see the gorgeous detailing around the neck that well on the site, but it has beautiful beading. The fit was pretty accurate, though I could've sized down too. So comfortable for a summer bbq or party.

It was perfect for a summery outdoor wedding in Boston!
I love the style of this dress. It's perfect for an outdoor summer wedding. Although the pattern is more casual, the beading and detail work makes it look dressier. It fits great, though the top is slightly tight if you are bigger in the chest area. As usual, my experience with RTR was great and I was very happy with my rental experience!

Perfect party hostess dress-comfortable without sacrificing style!
A delightful dress! Beautiful beading around the neckline, verdant emerald in color (significantly darker than the model photo), and the ideal summer fabric weight. Comfortable, TTS fit that stretches slightly with wear. For my fellow buxom ladies, the V front ended up being a bit too risque for a political luncheon, but was great for a Friday night cocktail party I hosted. I received tons of compliments, especially on the Mad Men-esque, vintage bird pattern. Embrace your inner Betty Draper and give this one a try!

Not for big boobs ;)
I absolutely love this dress! It is unfortunate that being 5'3" and having 36 C's does not allow me as much flexibility as I would like in ordering dresses. This particular dress made my breasts look like I had wrapped them in duct tape (ha!) which my boyfriend found thoroughly amusing. It was a bit uncomfortable and looked awkward from the side, but the man said I looked stunning from the front! :) So overall, it was a hit. I'd give it 4 or 5 stars if I was boobless!
RebekahApril 5, 2013
I agree. This dress is not for the large busted. I wrote my review and couldn't think of how to describe it - you hit the nail on the head with the "wrapped in duct tape" comment!
LauraApril 9, 2013
Haha thanks Rebekah! I should have posted a picture but forgot to take one that night. The rest of the fit was great though!

baby shower
this dress was absolutely beautiful. the beading on the top was really nice and the fabric was extremely comfortable. It was true to size and is a very flattering to my figure. I have a 27" waist and 36" hips and the 2 fit really well. i have a very small bust so you might want to go a size up if you have a bigger chest because it just fit me and i am a 34a. overall it was the perfect dress for a baby shower and i wore it with white and beige flat sandals.

Cute dress! Fancier in person
Got it to wear to a local horse racing event. Attire being cute sundresses & big hats. The dress is actually a much fancier than the picture shows so I didn't wear it to the races. Luckily I had a silent auction event that night that it was perfect for.

This dress was a standout at a party where most people wore dark colors without being too obnoxious. The stones at the neckline make it appropriate for a nicer occasion. I would love to rent this dress again!

I LOVE this dress!!
I Absolutely adore this dress! So much that I attempted to find a retailer so I could purchase it after renting. The fabric was light and comfortable, the fit was flattering without being too scant. Unfortunately Lilly Pulitzer doesn't currently make this style and pattern anymore, so it looks like I'll have to rent again :-)

Derby
Wore this to the Gold Cup in VA paired with a big white hat! Colors are much more vibrant in person - there is green as well as the aqua shown. I like it better actually. Fit was good and pretty true to size. I did need to wear a tank underneath so my cleavage wasn't too much - but smaller chested women may be able to get away without one. Cute summer dress and perfect for horse races.

Sister's Graduation
I rented this dress for my sister's graduation and was in love with it! But it runs so big! So I had to exchange it for a different dress. RTR has such great customer service though and everyone I spoke with on the phone was so helpful! They helped me pick out a new dress that would fit me and shipped it to me right away!

Classic, casual, and cute
I wore this for my sister's wedding rehearsal at a beach bar. The dress was well-made. I think I ended up wearing the 2 because the armholes on the 4 were a bit large, but it was a little tight in the bust. But it wasn't inappropriate because of the thick material and cut of the dress. I would recommend!

I wore this for the brunch we hosted the day after my daughter's wedding. Perfect! The colors are summer-y, the dress, casual but pulled together! I wear an 8 and the 8 fit great, by the end of the afternoon it did get a bit stretched out but it still looked fine.

Perfect for Bridal Shower
I rented this gorgeous dress for my bridal shower. The only quirk (and it is pretty minimal) to the dress is the fabric-- because of its texture (which is high quality and adds to the style of the dress), at the end of the day my arms were lightly chafed from rubbing against it. Really though, that's a small price to pay for such a beautiful and otherwise comfortable dress!

Adorable dress, but true to Lilly fashion - it is made for a not-so-hourglass body
I rented this dress to wear to St. Michaels, MD - but due to Hurricane Sandy I had to settle for shopping in downtown Annapolis and shopping for Hurricane readiness. I had a ton of compliments, and even purchased another Lilly while wearing this one. If you have larger hips, know that NO Lilly dress is tight in the waist.. which is great because you can actually eat dinner, but bad because you're going to feel a little bit bigger. All in all this dress is gorgeous, the color is amazing and you will love it!

It did not fit but it was a beautiful dress!
I wished this dress fit me! I looked like I was wearing a burlap sack (a pretty one!). If you have larger hips and a smaller waist then this might not work for you. But, I do have to say that the RTR customer service was fantastic when I had to return it. You cannot go wrong with RTR! The fabric and print were beautiful, but it was just not for my body type.

College graduation outside in 95 degrees- cute and comfortable
I wore this dress to college graduation. It was 95 degrees and under the polyester gown was still super comfortable. Transitioned well from sweating outside to pictures & brunch. Even ended up wearing it out that night by accident! Fits like a normal Lilly dress.

Beautiful dress, great quality. I got lots of compliments!
It was pretty low cut, which I'm sure my mother didn't appreciate, but it was a gorgeous dress anyway. It was well worth the money, and I wanted to keep it! I got the matching earrings on the model, and while they were kind of heavy for my ears, they matched perfectly. I franctically called the RTR stylists when I made a mistake while ordering and they fixed it up without a problem. Also, the dress came a day later than expected because of Hurricane Sandy, but still arrived before my event!
