Graduation dress.

Overall fit: True to Size

The dress fit true to size and was very flattering. I was a little worried it would be an awkward length but it ended up not being as long as I thought. I would definitely recommend renting it, it was perfect for my high school graduation and I liked it so much I rented it again for a sorority event!

I wore this dress for invitation day during sorority recruitment! It was PERFECT.
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I absolutely fell in love with this dress. I normally wear a size 8, but the fit was a bit too small so I ended up wearing my back up size which was a 10. Once I sized up the fit was perfect! Normally I am not a huge fan of strapless dresses because I hate having to constantly pull them up all night long, but that wasn't a problem with this dress! I thought that the length was a bit awkward (it was a little bit longer than I was expecting), but it looked better once I put heels on with it. I had a great night wearing this dress, and I would totally recommend this dress to everyone!

I wore this dress to a brunch and it was perfect: fresh, festive and flattering. It ran true to size, though I opted to wear it with spanx. If you're looking for a white strapless, I would strongly recommend this one!

Guys totally dig the good-girl yet shoulder-less look. Perfect for any scenario. Glad I tried two sizes--- with strapless you always run the risk of too big and too small so definitely get both just in case!

Great dress for graduation, just add pearls!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small

Runs a little narrow through the hips (I have runner's thighs), so I opted for the 4 instead of the 2. Appropriate for graduation, conservative cut, no leg or cleavage shown. Attached is a photo with my grandpa!

This dress was perfect for the event, and I received so many compliments! It was true to size, and fit was perfectly. I would recommend this dress to my friends. I will definitely be renting a dress for another occasion.

As someone larger on e top, strapless dresses make me nervous sometimes but this fit well and didn't fall down much throughout the night. Big hit!

Perfect bridal shower dress!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this for my bridal shower. The dress was adorable and I received so many compliments. It was a tiny bit big up top, which was surprising to me since I'm so busty, but it may also have been because I've been losing weight for the wedding.

After all of the excitement of recruitment, I couldn't wait to get my dress for Preference Round! It was awesome getting a gorgeous dress and I got tons of compliments--It felt great standing out in a sea of white dresses!

I wore this for our sorority's Preference Round in Recruitment. The flower lace details made this white dress stand out from all of the others. I'm usually a very comfortable size 6, but this was a little tight around the chest area b/c of the bodice. It still fit great and I wouldn't have gone a size bigger. Overall I loved it! Coincidentally, my Big wore it too!

Who doesn't feel pretty in Lilly? I didn't want to send it back... The only thing you should keep in mind when renting this dress is that the hips run small! The dress was definitely tighter than I thought it would be, but that didn't prevent me from adoring it

Perfect balance of fun and elegant! Great for larger-busted & narrow frame.
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I wore this for my bridal shower brunch. This is a great dress for larger chested ladies. Strapless dresses and dresses with detailing under the bust almost never me fit correctly. This one did! As a 32/34 DD this is a rare thing. I'm usually more of a size 6 and couldn't zip it up; one of the size 8's (I received a few because of damaged dresses: customer service was WONDERFUL though!) was tighter on the hips. I did end up wearing the size 8 with a strapless bra and some fashion tape. The lace flowers hit in the middle/lower portion of my knees, which I liked for a more conservative length, which was especially helpful when sitting and opening gifts. Also, the lining was great: no underwear lines showed even without a slip or Spanx. In summary: Good for narrow chested but large busted. Not much give in the hips, better for a straighter build.

Beautifully made dress. Ordered my normal size in Lilly and a size up but this was way too tight and way too long so I didn't even wear it-sent it back the next day-what a waste

Beautiful, classy dress!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

Loved the dress! I was supposed to receive the dress in an 8 and 10. However, only an 8 was sent. It was a little too snug for comfort. My event was a Kentucky Derby themed cookout, so I wanted to be comfortable. The 10 would have been perfect! Ending up not wearing the dress, but it is definitely a great choice for anyone who wants to look casual and classy!

I wish this was more fitted on the hips. Kind of a thicker fabric.

I wore this dress to my rehearsal dinner in VT. I was scared it was going to be very long but it hit right above the knee and wasn't awkwardly too long. It was very cute and flattering, however, the material is very heavy so not the best for a very hot day. The "lace" was very thick, but it made the dress look very well made. I loved it!

Such an adorable dress! I wore this to a charity cocktail party in Nantucket, and the dress was a smash hit! I have a fuller bust, and had to go a size up to a 6 even though I normally wear a 2/4 in order to wear a bra. Highly recommend

Definitely do not rent if you are a pear. I went up a size to match my hips and it was still too tight. Bust was huge. Nice design, poor cut.

Very cute dress. I loved the weight of the dress. It was well made and not flimsy. I was never worried it was going to fall down. It fit well and I received a number of compliments on this dress. So glad I rented it!

Absolutely adorable dress - the feel of the fabric was very nice (soft, textured). This would be perfect for a spring/summer event, courthouse wedding, bridal shower, or reception. I think this would have looked better on me if my bust (34B) was a little more generous, but it wasn't unmanageable. The size 0 fit great in the bust, the size 2 fit great in the hips...if only there was some combo for that size it would have been perfect for me.
