Not for tall girls.
I rented this dress for a wedding rehearsal dinner but did not wear it because it was way too short for my fancy. The neckline and sleeves a are very cute but for someone who is 5'8" and loves wearing heels, I would not recommend it...unfortunately .

Perfect LBD!
I rented this for a bachelorette party. I think the pattern on the dress could be dressed up or down depending on your jewelry. This angle of the picture isn't the most flattering but from the front I thought it was very figure flattering. The 4 and 6 fit but my friends said the 4 looked better slightly tighter. The 6 the slip was hanging below so the 4 looked better as well. I danced all night and didn't have an issue with the length.

Dress fit like a paper bag; not flattering.
This is a pretty dress, but if you have a small waist and hips, you might want to try another dress.

Gorgeous dress...just shirt.
I ordered the size 6 and the backup in size 4. I think the size 6 would have been perfect in length but, it looked like the lining was ripped and the way they fixed it was by taking it in . In the end, it probably made the dress a size 0. The size 4 fit great it was just too short for the liking. However, the material is beautiful and the dress itself is beautiful... Maybe I was just too tall for it.

Perfect LBD!
I wore this little black dress to a bachelorette party. I carefully read the other reviews and decided to order a size down from my normal size 6. It was a great fit! On the size 6 I received the liner was longer than the dress so I was thankful the size 4 fit. I loved this dress because it was comfortable but still fit the bill. I am short so the length was perfect on me! I paired with silvery black shoes and an orange and gold necklace. I definitely recommend this dress!

Stunning dress. I'm typically a 4-6 (5'9", 135 lbs). Both the 2 and 4 I rented fit. The 2 was shorter, and I went that route. Neither was tight. Simple. Beautiful. Elegant without looking like you're trying too hard. Several people at my husband's 30th high school reunion actually asked if I had been a model. Can't beat that!

I wore this dress to a Bridal Luncheon. The size 0 fit good but I kinda wished it was tighter, more form fitting. It was definitely not as short on me as it is on the model. I wore my hair up in a pony tail too to show off the pretty back of the dress. The one compliment I received was on the back of the dress. I should have rented the earrings & the purse to jazz up the dress. It's a very average, simple dress but it was perfect for the occasion.

Cute dress!
I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner and loved it! The waist was a bit larger than I would have liked but when I tried to go down a size te chest and arms were too tight. If you have broad shoulders and a narrow waist be aware it might be a bit loose. Super cute and classy though!

My entire family told me how skinny I was. And I really impressed them by finding a Lilly Pulitzer dress in black. Who knew I was so fashion savvy? On a student's budget, this experience was phenomenal.
This is a fabulous dress. It is comfortable, forgiving, and most of all gorgeous. I have to warn you though the exposed back zipper is a yellow gold color (something I couldnt tell from the photos and was disappointed about because I do not wear yellow gold). That aside, I still loved the look, and hey, I dont have to look at my own back =). Additionally, I just lost a few pounds, so fitting into the size 6 at 5'7" and 147 lbs was quite exciting. If you check out the photo I uploaded (and cropped my sister out of), you can see it is not quite as short on me as it is on the model, so that was comforting. I very much enjoyed this delicate-looking dress and would recommend it to anyone. I usually wear an 8, so since the 6 fit, you may want to get a backup in a smaller size versus a larger one as I tend to do.

great dress, careful if short!
LOVE this dress. I wore it to a formal brunch and and didn't fit perfect but I think overall it was a success. I'm short so it was a little loose in the shoulders. if you're worried order a size down! and the back is lower than it looks in the picture. the material is very nice and the lace is so cute! I got tons of compliments. Also not you're typical Lilly dress, much more grown up and refined

Adorable dress - runs large!
This dress was super cute however it does run a little large - I felt slightly frumpy in it. I loved the lace cap sleeves and the low back (you may need to plan your bra accordingly, as my first bra ran too high in the back).

Great dress!
I loved this dress so much that I'm renting it for another wedding at the end of the month. It's a versatile dress that you can style differently depending on the accessories. I got many compliments and was very comfortable in the dress the whole night. The 2 was a bit big on my torso, but it wasn't so big that it looked bad. I actually liked that it had a bit more room since it was on the short side.

The overall look of the dress and its material!
I wore this dress for my school's father daughter dance and loved it! It is rather loose in the mid-section so don't be afraid to go a size down. My only issue with this dress was the hips. I am curvy in the hips and such, and it did ride-up slightly when I would walk. The detailing of the dress are really pretty and much more intricate than in the picture. I got so many compliments and felt really classy and pretty all night. Highly recommend it!

Perfect, more casual LBD
Absolutely loved this dress. So comfortable, can wear a regular bra, and it is really cute on. I usually alternate between a 6 and 4 depending on the dress, and the 4 fit perfectly. Wore it with the emerald pear stud earrings from RTR.

Excellent Fit!
Loved the dress! I normally wear a 2 or 0 and the 0 fit perfectly. I'm 5'2" and I tend to like shorter dresses so I was worried about the length, but it was plenty short enough for me. I wore it to a rehearsal dinner with pumps, but I think it can definitely be dressed down.

I normally wear between and 2 and 4 but I wore a 0 in this dress. The 0 fit very well but it was a little shorter than I expected especially with heels on

Adorable
I rented this dress for an engagement party that I was hosting and absolutely loved it. So adorable and received so many compliments. Really considered buying it after renting it. The dress does run big. I actually ordered sizes 10 and 12 and they were too loose. The RTR team was great and shipped out another dress the night I received the ill fitting dresses and received the size 8 the next day! So helpful. Totally recommend this dress.

beautiful dress!
Super cute, simple black dress. The lace was really pretty in person, and the zipper added a nice touch to the back. It was a tad bit short (especially while dancing), but not too revealing. This dress definitely runs big, I'd rent a size smaller for your back up size. Great dress!
AlexandraDecember 20, 2011
hi kelly, did you wear a size 4 or a 2? I know you said it runs big, so I was wondering what to do. Is it true to "Lilly" sizes? (If you've worn things from then before). Please let me know, I'd love to get this dress!
KellyJune 3, 2012
it's probably too late now but i wore the 2.
ShannonAugust 6, 2012
Hey Kelly- It's Shannon Killeen from NDA- question: I was thinking of renting this dress for a wedding in September at St. Dennis and then reception at Overbrook CC...it's not a black tie event but do you think this is dressy enough for a wedding? do you think it's appropriate? P.S. you looked greatttttt in it!!!!
RTRAugust 7, 2012
Hi Shannon, this style is a Black lace mesh so it's cocktail appropriate and can be dressed up with accessories and a great pair of heels!

Pretty black dress, wore it with black ankle booties and sheer black tights.
I'm 5'10 and this dress was my pick for NYE out for dinner and dancing. The dress was short, but not inappropriate for a night out. I am pretty busty (34DD) and the 6 was slightly loose. This dress would be perfect for hiding tummy trouble zones, but if you are thinner, don't expect the dress to be fitted around your middle. Pretty lace but does not really stand out in a see a black dresses.

I usually wear a 4 - 6 but I could have fit into the 2 as well. It fit bust legs arms perfectly but was loose around the mid section. Still very classy and simple for the occasion!

I wish I owned this dress!
This dress runs big. I could have worn a size 2. But I ordered a 6 and a 4. Ended up wearing the 4. Also a lot shorter than I anticipated. The back is pretty and I loved this dress so much I wish I could own it! I'd wear it time and time again.

Classy and fun dress
I wore this dress to a college reunion. The cut is more flattering than I expected. The lace detail, particularly on the cap sleeves, adds interest beyond a boring LBD. And the low back and short length take the dress from casual into party/evening wear. I received lots of compliments.

Loved it so much, I bought one too.
I actually liked this dress so much, I ended up buying it when I found it on sale on Amazon.com! The dip in the back is really sexy, but still allows you to wear a normal bra (hallelujah!!). It also works well for a range of events, from a shower to a date to a night on the town, though it is probably too casual for cocktail or semi-formal. The dress was very figure-flattering on my slim/hourglass frame, and would work well on a range of body types, though it might end up a little tent-like on someone with a full chest. I usually wear a 0-4, depending on how fitted a dress is through the hips. This is quite fitted through the hips, but runs a little big, so I wore my usual size 2, those with narrower hips may want to size down. Also, it was a bit long on me, just a few inches above my knees, and definitely not mid-thigh as on the model. I am planning to have the dress I own hemmed.
RachelJanuary 15, 2013
Hey Angie! Do you remember who the vendor was on Amazon (or what Lily named this dress style)? I have been looking everywhere for it and can't find it. Thanks!
AngieJanuary 17, 2013
Rachel -- the vendor was Amazon.com, so not much help there. The dress style is called "Jeanette" and I saw it available on RueLaLa today actually. If you look fast you might be able to grab it!

Loved it and wore it with a pair of turquise shoes for a pop of color to an outside engagement party
Loved the detailing in the fabric and the gold zipper up the back. It was not as fitted as I would have liked it to be but it was still wearable and the length was great for me. Not to long but not to short. Since I am short, I run into problems with length but this worked!

Cute fit but way too short
This dress definitely runs big - I'm normally between a 6 and an 8 in designer dresses and after reading the reviews, I rented sizes 4 and 6 and ended up wearing the 4. I tried on the 4 first and it fit really well at the bust and at the waist but it was very short (at least for me). I hoped the 6 would remedy this, but the only difference was that the 6 was a little boxier and not nearly as slimming and flattering as the 4... but just as short. For reference, I am 5'7.5" So if length is not an issue for you, definitely go with the smaller size. The dress was short when I was standing up, but once I sat down to dinner it was borderline inappropriate (thank god for the napkin in the lap!). I was so self-conscious that halfway thru the event I ended up going back to my room and changing into my backup dress.

This dress fits nicley in the upper and lower body, but was entirely too large in the middle.
The only real difference I noticed between the two sizes (2,4) was the length.

Flattering, easy dress!
This dress runs large, I am a 4-6 and went with the 4 which was even a little loose in spots. I wanted an easy LBD for my friend's rehearsal dinner, and this was perfect. The lace details add some interest. It was short which is perfect for me since I am short, but be careful if you are taller than 5'3".

I rented this dress for a gala that I attended. When it arrived I loved the dress.
Unfortunately it was too big for me to wear. I usually wear a 4 and the 4 was too big. Was bummed I didn't get to wear the dress I rented!
