Darling for Bridal Shower!
I rented this dress for my bridal shower and this dress was absolutely PERFECT. It's unbelievably flattering; I don't think I've ever worn something that received so many compliments! It was fitted through the bust for me, which actually made the dress more flattering through the mid-section, which is an area I typically like to hide. Length was great- short enough to elongate the leg, but completely appropriate for any occasion. Can't recommend it enough!

Cute Dress
I wore this for Easter. The bright colors were fun and the dress was modest enough for church and family. I did belt the waist, because that area was plenty roomy.

Tight in the hips and chest
Great colors and cute cut, but very tight in the hips and bust for anyone with normal curves...it also left a little awkward space in the back. I went with my backup dress because it cut the circulation off in my arms as the chest was too tight, but I may rent it again one size up!

Loved the bright, vibrant colors!
This was my first rental. The dress has a great fit, true to size. Although I think the top would be tight on a bustier frame. I received lots of compliments all night. I felt fabulous in this dress!

your pictures perfectly shows the beauty of the dress.

Super cute! I am also 5'6"... did you feel the dress was too short?
RTRMay 14, 2012
Hi Lisa, this style is 37'' from shoulder to hem so it will be mini length on 5'6" and above

Cute dress
I rented this dress for my bridal shower and received a lot of compliments. I normally wear a size 6, but the 6 was not available, so I rented the 4. It was a little bit snug up top, but not so uncomfortable that I couldn't wear it. My mother did NOT comment on it being too tight, so it must have looked okay. The colors are perfect for spring.

The dress totally popped with color- perfect for summer!
This is why I love RTR- perfect dress for the perfect event. I wore this to an outdoor party/college reunion and it was a big hit. The dress was super comfortable and flattering and the colors were so bright and fun. My husband jokingly called it "the watermelon dress" but he loved it too. I'm 5'10, 145 lbs, 34B and though I typically wear a size 6 in dresses, I wore a 4 in this (which is my typical Lilly size).

Renting through RTR is so easy and hassle-free.
I wore this dress to a summer bridal shower. It was a tiny bit large for a size 6, but still extremely flattering. Everyone told me how cute I looked. It is not nearly as short as it appears on the model. Will rent this again.

It was my first rental, and I'll definitely be back to rent again. Everyone loved the dress!
This was my first time renting from RTR and everything was great. They only had one size available, so I was definitely happy when the dress fit perfectly. Everyone at the party loved the dress and kept asking me where I bought it. It was a proper length for the party and fit well without being overly tight.

Bridal Luncheon for Me!
Loved this dress! I actually tried on the exact dress at the Lilly store so i knew which size to order. I wore it the day before my wedding at the Bridal Luncheon. Very classy, yet fun and happy!

So cute but so big!
I forget how large Lilly runs. I feel like I am a true 0 (or maybe even bigger) and this swallowed me! My body shape is just like the girl in the picture and it definitely does not look that tight.

Adorable for beach wedding
This is a quintessential Cape Cod beach wedding dress. It's a bit snug if you were blessed/cursed with woman's hips and the thighs to match so take that into consideration. It's classic Lily and something you can either dress up or down.

perfect shower dress
I am a small 8, big 6. Because I have broad shoulders, I ended up wearing the 8 which meant the rest of the dress was a little loose. I am 5'8" and it hit just a bit above my knee. I got tons of compliments. It is a perfect dress for a shower.

Just What I Needed
My sorority was having a Labor Day Barbeque, and I needed a dress that was slimming, preppy, casual, and full of the bright summer colors I would soon have to say goodbye to. It sounds like quite the impossible check-list, but with Lilly Pulitzer, it was possible. This dress is so comfortable and can be worn to a casual sorority event, or even a day on the boardwalk. I stole the attention of several girls dying to know where I got my dress from. When they heard I received it for a fraction of the initial cost, jaws dropped and wallets opened. Rent the Runway not only provided me with two sizes in this beautiful eye-catching dress, they also sent me the return envelope for free shipping, as well as a few styling tools in a beautifully wrapped pink mesh bag. This was the easiest and most affordable process. I can't believe I didn't know about this sooner.

Flattering, fun dress from summer
The picture just does not do this dress justice. The fabric is so beautiful in person, and the colors of the pattern look so nice together. I rented the dress for a birthday party, but I think it would work well for a nice date night or baby/wedding shower. A little snug in the fit, but not enough for me to go up a size. I wore it with jade earrings and tan/gold Tory Burch flats. I loved it so much, I've tried to find this dress to buy since renting it.

Loved the length. Wore it with cowgirl boots to a wedding at an apple orchard and it was great! didn't get too hot even though it was the middle of July.

Great RTR experience as always - dress was sent directly to my hotel!
Unfortunately I did not love the fit of this dress. The cut of the sleeves was a bit unflattering - it cuts inward in the sleeves. Also this dress, and most of the Lilly dresses, run a bit small in the chest. I normally wear a 2 but needed a 4 in this dress for my 34C chest. Aside from these fit issues, the colors were very cute.

Dress is pretty for an average night out or would work well for a bridal shower or casual wedding.
Dress fit fairly well to size however just a tad on the small side. I am a size 2 and the dress fit a little snug around the top/bottom but perfect in the middle however I could tell that a size larger would have been much to blousey in the mid rift section.

Masters Week in Augusta, Georgia!
The dress fits true to size and was the perfect dress to wear "on the course" and afterwards to a Masters party. The photo was taken at night, so the green lights distract from it - but - it looks just like the RTR photo in person. I'm petite and would not have been comfortable if it were any shorter, so if you are tall and don't love your legs, this dress might not be for you. Great RTR experience, as usual!
