Tailgating fun!

I rented this for a homecoming tailgate and sadly, the 10 came with a broken zipper. I had to wear the 12, which was too big for me in the midsection and therefore wasn't as flattering. Aside from that, it's a gorgeous dress and really pops with the pink/navy combination. I'd rent it again!

super cute but runs huge

This dress is super preppy and adorable, but be warned, my backup size (smaller) was still huge. I had to belt it to make it work, and in the end it was ok, but still. I would suggest 2 sizes below.

Cute

I loved the dress, but was not sure about how it looked in pictures. Also, it was very thick. The fit was also a little bit baggy.

Great dress, too long!

Unfortunately for me, this dress didn't work. I rented it for a wedding I was going to and it was wayyyy too long! The detailing at the bottom made it impossible to pin up, so I had to go with a dress I already had. Beautiful dress though!

Perfect dress for a wedding rehearsal!

This dress was absolutely perfect! The material was heavier, so it was very flattering and forgiving of any problem areas (Hips!). It was a decent length, without being too long or scandalously short. The neckline was cute and the detailing was a nice touch. The zipper got stuck a bit, but not enough to worry about it. I would absolutely rent this dress (or the other colors) for another occasion, Perfect Lilly is always perfect! For whatever reason, it won't let me upload a photo--sorry!

I wore this dress to my undergrad graduation. The colors were perfect for Spring.

The dress was a little bit awkward for my body type. I had to size up mainly for the bust area which meant the midsection was a little baggy.

Love it!

I wore this to a summer bridal shower brunch and it was lovely! My details are below, and I wish I would have ordered an 8, as the 10 was a little lose, but still fit OK and was fine for the one day. Very flattering cut!

So Cute but So Narrow!

I rented this as a backup dress for my rehearsal dinner, and sadly, I couldn't zip it up. It has a very narrow, tight hip and stomach area - not great if you have some curve to you! It was large in the chest and small in the hips, which is the exact opposite of what I needed. It was SO CUTE, so I was disappointed I couldn't wear it, but it just highlighted the wrong things on me, so I had to pass.

Order up a size

I was unable to wear this dress in a size 8. It was tight around the bust and my husband couldn't zip it up. I would for sure order up in this dress. I loved the material and colors and bummed I didn't get to wear it.

This is super cute, but cut tight thru hips and backside.

I'm an hourglass figure with more sand on bottom than on top. I love the craftsmanship and whimsy of the dress, but it hugged my lower half to tightly.

I should have listened to the other reviews

I rented this for a party and even though I wear an 8 in all sorts of designers, not in this one. No give whatsoever. I was able to fit in it, but I looked stuffed in it. I will go on a diet & try again.

Great experience with RTR!

Wore this dress to a preppy wedding. I couldn't be happier! The process is so much easier than going shopping with two toddlers. The dress fit well and the quality was awesome. I was able to wear a regular bra. The dress was lined so I didn't have to wear a slip. I was extremely comfortable.

Beautiful dress just a bit too snug for me.

Straight lines made this dress too snug for a curvy lady like myself. Order up in size if you have curves.

I wore this dress to a friend's wedding and loved it! Easy to move around and dance in!

I ordered a 0 and a 2. The 0 would have been fine, except it fit too tight in the bust. So I moved up to the size 2, which ended up fitting and looking great!

Beautiful dress for a daytime event!

The colors of this dress are great! There is some evidence of wear on the seams as the navy has begun to fade. The fabric has very little give to it - I have a larger chest and felt a little squished but the 2 wasn't available for my event. I suggest going up a size if you are in between!

Super cute, flattering cut

Very flattering shape, it covers up tummy flaws nicely! Colors were a fit faded and worn, but otherwise I was extremely happy. Ran a little small, I am usually an 8 in Lilly, but I couldn't zip the 8 up in the chest area so I wore a 10.

Wore this dress to my PhD graduation - overall, a good choice!

I wore this dress under my graduation robes for my PhD graduation and the after-parties. I usually wear a 6 in dresses but this one ran a bit narrow through the hips - the 8 ended up being a perfect fit! The fabric is heavy, though, and I was pretty hot in it, despite it being sleeveless (granted, it was July). Maybe better for a cooler evening, but it was very cute!

Loved it - perfect for a yacht club end of summer party. Even though it may not look like the hottest dress out there, boyfriend wanted me to keep it! He loved it. Very figure-flattering and not too short even with long legs at 5'7" (showed enough leg to be cute but still totally appropriate for the preppy-family event).

Wonderful Experience

I wore this dress for a dinner on a cruise vacation and received so many compliments! I usually bounce back and forth between a 4 and a 6 in dresses, but with Lily dresses I know I'm a 4. Sure enough, the 4 fit like a glove. So cute and classy!

Love, Love, LOVE This Dress!!

This dress is absolutley lovely! I normally wear a 2 or 4, but with this dress the 2 fit like it had been made for me. The cut perfectly accentuated my curves and really emphasized my waist. (Yay!) I'm shorter than the model in the picture, so the dress length hit a couple of inches above the knee. All in all, I was 100% pleased with this dress. I want to own it!

Love this dress! Many people were shocked when I told them I had 'rented' it- they asked if I could just buy it, they loved it so much! Would definitely rent this dress again.

Wore this for rehearsal dinner and received SO many compliments. It fit great, and true to size! The bust area was a little tight, but not suffocating. Would highly recommend this dress to anyone!

Mod little dress

Wonderful dress I wore for my birthday party. Lots of compliments even from people who are "not into fashion." I like that the dress is made of thick material, it feels sturdy and well made. I actually wore it twice, once on my actual birthday for dinner with my husband and also for a party with friends. Wore spanx for the party, not for the dinner, and thought it was better with but not too bad.

Great dress, and I got so many compliments!

Its a slimming dress, and hugs all the right places. Order both the right size and maybe one bigger; my shoulders aren't that broad, but if they were any broader I would have needed a size 6. It's super comfortable, and I would definitely recommend it for a party either in the spring or fall.

Flattering and sophisticated

This dress was the perfect choice for a bridal luncheon in St. Augustine, Florida. I only rented a size 0 and felt that it was a little snug around my hips (I'm curvy in that area) and a size 2 would have felt a little more comfortable. The colors were bright and I received lots of complements on the beautiful details. If I could I would absolutely own this dress!

Homecoming Perfection

I rented this dress for a homecoming tailgate and it was incredibly flattering, even 10 hours later! The fabric is of a high quality and held up without wrinkles all day, even through dancing and cheering on the football team at the game. It is a thick cotton, but I was never too warm in it, even in 80 degree weather. I ordered a 6 & an 8 because I was concerned about the top fitting (I am a 32FF), but I was able to wear the 6 with ease, and I did even feel sucked in! It was also very conservative at the top, and hit me right above the knee. I got so many compliments on this dress and I would absolutely rent it again!

I'm a size 10, so this 8 was tight. BUT it looked great and I got tons of compliments. If I rented this Lilly style again, I'd would need a size 10.

I wore this dress to a friend's wedding and I received so many compliments!

I have very large (36DD) breasts and am very short and this dress was very flattering for my body type. The material is a little heavy, but this ran true to size. I'm sure for smaller chested women it might run a little large. I wish I could have kept it!

Easy, worry free and a great dress...felt great!

The fit was true to size...other reviews had said that the dress ran large, so I only ordered one size. While it worked, it was a little snug on the chest...I wish I had taken RTR up on a free second size! I had to have this dress & one other sent down to the hotel I was staying at (to avoid getting charged for double the time) and I was pretty nervous about it. My worrying was for nothing...the dresses were waiting for me when I checked in! The whole experience was great!

Fun, classy dress perfect for a bridal shower!

I rented this dress for a bridal shower I cohosted. It was perfect for the daytime event! I ordered a 2 and a 4, unsure of which would fit best. The 2 was a little tight, but was in much better shape than the 4 so I went with it. I also wore a pink cardigan for parts of the shower to be a little more conservative. It was quite short, although I do have long legs.

Super cute and fun! Not your traditional Lily!

This was my first Lily rental as I was always nervous about my chest fitting in the traditionally smaller cut Lily dress. I recieved a million compliments and felt super cute and sexy. I ended up wearing the 6 rather than the 4 because of chest.

Lilly Pulitzer is ALWAYS A HIT! Fit like a glove!

I own several Lilly Pulitzer pieces, but I seldom wear them to a key event twice. I decided to rent one, which was effortless. As always I loved the fit & length. I am large up top, so the zero is a tad snug there. However, the 2 swallowed me everywhere else, so I opted for the zero. It fit like a charm!

Very Easy. Loved everything about it!

Really cute dress. Slightly shorter than I expected but that was fine because I like short dresses. I got the 0 and the 2. I expected to wear the 0 but it was kind of tight in the arms/bust. I was really happy that I had the 2 because it was looser and seemed more appropriate for a day time event.

Polished and fun for a work event

I rented this for a conference in Miami. It was the perfect mix of professional and fun. The fabric is fairly thick but still comfortable. It was a little longer on me than on the model (to be excpected since I'm 5'2") but this worked out nicely since I needed something on the more conservative side. I received a few compliments from co-workers as well!
