Vibrant fun dress
The dress has beautiful colors in it. Rented it for a rehearsal dinner and it was shorter than I usually wear dresses.

Loved the print but very short!
It fits true to size however, I usually wear a size 2 and ended up wearing a size 4 because the size 2 was WAY to short and the size 4 was a tiny bit longer. I'm 5'10 so dresses are usually short on me but I had to wear shorts underneath and be really careful to make sure nothing was showing and constantly checking to make sure my butt wasn't showing. Other than that the dress was absolutely amazing very pretty print and bright perfect for the spring/summer.

Fit a little snug; Didn't wear.
This is a really cute summer dress. It's so tropical to me and vibrant and I love it. The cut is great too, however the 4 was a little snug on me in the chest. Since this was an Unlimited rental I didn't order a size up for comparison, but would suggest it if you're in between sizes or busty.

Great dress but runs small and wrinkles easily
Super cute pattern! Got lots of compliments. It also looks brand new (not faded like some of the other Lilly dresses). However it runs very small! The 6 was very tight and usually a size 6 in Lilly is loose on me and I end up sizing down. Also it wrinkles right away. Other than that, it's a good length and a good day dress

Beautiful pattern, soft fabric, and fit like a glove!
This Lilly has been sold out at my local store for a while, so I've been unable to add this gorgeous Gabby shift dress to my personal collection. Thank you rent the runway for allowing me the opportunity to rent this fabulous gabby shift dress. It's vibrant colorful pattern is one of my favorite Lilly patterns and it will definitely make you stand out in a crowd. The slit at the chest is just low enough not to reveal too much. The fabric has some stretch, but not as much as the Lilly cotton T-shirt dresses. If you are bigger in the hips or chest, I'd recommend sizing up one size for your backup. I wore this beautiful dress to a local music festival, and I received compliments all night from everyone in the crowd. I was able to stand, sit, and dance in this dress all night long without worrying that I was revealing too much. I'm 5'3 and the length was perfectly appropriate on me. I will definitely be renting this dress again! RTR please offer more Lilly!!!

The dancing.
Overall it was fine, but tight in the chest for a large-chested lady. I did love the colors and the cut. I probably would have gone for a 14 if it came in that size.

STYLIST REVIEW
This gorgeous printed shift dress is perfect for a daytime brunch or tropical vacation! It runs true to size, but has little stretch, so we recommend going up one size for your backup. This style works best for A to C cup sizes as it is very fitted in the bust area. It is sleeveless and fitted throughout, with a little stretch in the fabric. This style hits between mini and mid-thigh depending on your height, You can also wear a standard bra.

Great colorful dress!
Loved the colors of this dress! It runs a little tight in the chest area. Also felt like it was very short so I wore it with flats. It's was perfect for our tropical vacation! Received a lot of compliments on it!

Great dress! Lilly is one of my favorite designers.
Wore this to the Taylor Swift concert in FL with my girlfriends and it was perfect. Lilly dresses often stretch on me -- I could have wore the 4, since the 6 did stretch. Overall great dress & standout print.

Beautiful colors and pattern
This was tighter and shorter than I was expecting. I wore it to dinner on vacation and also to work but the neckline may be too low for some work environments. It was very flattering even though it was a tad snug on my hips, but Lilly sizing is weird in general

Lilly and Pearls #classic
It is a REALLY bright dress, even for Lilly. Very pretty detail and definitely makes a statement. Runs true to size, I always have to size up if the material doesn't stretch because of the chest. I measure 37.5-26-36.5 and wear 32DDD or 34DD so I'm a 0/2 waist and hip, but an 8/10 chest for Lilly. I wore the 8 and I think it looked fine loose on the bottom. It has the clasps on the shoulder straps to hold your bra in place which I love.

Beautiful dress ! Everyone loved it and great vibrant Colors!
Usually wear a 2 in Lilly but HAD to wear the 4 because it was so sort. I am 5'8'' and there was NO WAY I could wear the 2 because of length. Thank goodness for the backup size of 4 or I would have been in trouble! If you get a backup size order UP!

Awful. Was so short!
This was an awful rental. I am 5'9 and typically a size 10. They only have a size 12 available so I rented that. I put it on and it literally came up to my hips. Everything below hung out. I could not figure this out to save my life. It fit like a shirt. I am not sure if this dress was defective or put through a shrinking device. I measured the length with a tape measure and it was 22 inches long. Beware!

LOVED THIS DRESS.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS DRESS. I would've bought this dress if I could've. I didn't want to send it back! It is a little tighter and slimmer fitting than most dresses but get a size up and you'll be fine. But rent this dress if you're debating it. It was perfect. Definitely will rent again!!

Such a cute and stylish dress!
I normally wear a 4 and that is what I got but it was a little snug so i should have gotten a 6. This was an amazing dress. I am still loving that it came in a garment bag and that i could just ship it back in that bag as well. I wore this for a wedding for a sorority sister of mine.

Would recommend but beware of length.
The dress was very flattering. I am normally a 4 but sized up to the 6 because it was very short (although the length did not vary that much from the 4 to the 6) and I wanted it to be a little bit more comfortable since I was wearing it for an outdoor event. The colors are brighter in person but not in a bad way

I wore this dress to dinner while we were on vacation in Hawaii. While I loved the colors, it wasn't the most flattering fit on me and was shorter than expected. I would not rent this dress again.

It didn't fit :(
Ok, I did just have a baby but this dress seemed to be ALOT shorter than usual. I have worn this exact style for Lilly before and it wasn't as short. It is such a cute dress!! I would order a size up for your backup.

Perfect colors to represent the vibrancy and joy of college graduation!
The dress was perfect for my sister's North Carolina spring graduation - she looked so cute and happy, and the dress accentuated that! It was a good thing we sized up though; she's normally a size 0. I did dock a star, however, because I was disappointed to have received the dress with a broken hanger, which resulted in it flopping around inside the garment bag and getting wrinkled.

Killer dress in a fun bright print
I rented this dress for my boyfriend's college graduation. The colors and detail are beautiful in person. I decided to wear the 6 versus the 4 because the 4 was a little snug in the hips and the dress was fairly short. However, just a few hours into wearing the 6 and it had stretched out considerably, making me wish I had worn the 4. Like I said, the dress was short on my 5' 9" frame. Overall this dress made me feel beautiful and I got several compliments. Great rental!

Wore it as press photographer to the U.S. Open Polo Semifinals at the Palm Beach Polo Club.
After reading many reviews of women who were similar to my height and body type, it seemed that the Lilly dresses ran small and having just rented a Lilly dress a few weeks prior, so as a person who usually wears a 0-2 in dresses, I went with the size 2. Overall, the dress was light and comfortable like the previous Lily dress I rented. I don't know how a fuller busted (C and over) could wear a Lily dress in the same size...same goes for the other Lilly dress. Again, waist could've been more fitted, but I have a very small waist, so that's my fit problem. I was press/media photographer for high goal polo at the International Polo Club in Palm Beach, and Lilly Pulitzer is one of their main sponsors, so I wanted to rent a LP dress for the occasion. Since the print was so bright and the neckline was decorated with the gold embellishment, I didn't wear any jewelry. For makeup, I did a triple cat eye in turquoise, green, and pink with the Urban Decay Electric Palette, which completed my look. LP dresses are great. Very comfortable to move around in and sit in. Would rent LP as a designer for another polo match, or if I was going on a cruise.

Favorite dress from RTR so far! Beautiful color! My hubby loved it!
I rented this for a much needed date night with my husband. It fit PERFECT. It was quite short but the dress is structured enough that I wasn't concerned about showing something I didn't want to. The colors are GORGEOUS- so bright and summery! I usually wear a 4 or 6 (more so the 4) and the 6 I wore in this dress fit me PERFECT. It is definitely more suited for more casual-dressy events. I was sad that the bra strap clip inside the dress was tore off on one side but I was happy to find out that I could still wear a normal bra without it popping out. If you are going to be doing a lot of moving it might be more of an issue than it was for me. Overall, this might be one of my favorite rentals to date! Thank you RTR!

Love the print and the embroidery at the top! Wore this for a bridal shower and a graduation.
Ordered the 4 and the 6 as a back up. Both fit very similarly, wore the 6. The only complaint I have is that it is short in length so watch out if you're bending!
