Dress fit overall, but did not end up wearing to the event.
Very tight throughout the rib cage/chest/shoulders. Fabric does not give, at all. (I'm an aerialist, so I've got a fair amount of muscle in my back and shoulders.)

Graduation dress approved!
A conservative, stylish dress that's a crowd pleaser. The pink undertones (not usually seen in photos, but managed to get a good one of what the dress actually looks like) are a great touch to the white and gold. Fell about 3 1/2 inches above my knee. Tight in the bust area (34D) so I wore an unpadded bra. Fits nicely elsewhere.

Great dress!
This is a great dress! Easy to wear, looks great and nice colors! RTR sent me an email the day before receiving my order informed me that the size 0 I ordered would not be ready in time for my event. They made it up to me by sending a dress that was similar to the dress I ordered. Very nice gesture, but I had my eye on the Candy dress. I wore the size two and it fit fine but the 0 would have been perfect. Can't say a anything bad about my experience but I wish I could have received the correct size. The dress is a light pink with gold. Will fit and look good at any body type. Received lots of complementing and I wore it to a high school graduation.

Perfect for an outside, evening gala - fundraising event for a fabulous charity. Thank you!!
It fit great - no issues or problems. I had ordered a 6 with a 4 for backup, but the 4 fit perfectly - which made me very happy!

A perfect baby shower dress
Very pretty without being too sexy. Hosted a baby shower for 80 people in this dress. I was best dressed and got a ton of compliments- nothing new for my RTR outfits. Dress was VERY loose around the waist, but meant I could breathe easily and move around for the most part. Shoulders were a bit tight when I raised my arms. Was worried the material would be too thick but it is actually very breathable and soft. The fit is very flattering for a daytime event without giving away the goods. The future grandparents approved!

Very classy!
I am usually a size 8 or 10 depending on the dress but 8 was unavailable so I ordered 10 and 12 based on other reviews to size up. The 10 was pretty loose on my shoulders but otherwise it fit well and I think a size smaller would've been tight when sitting down. Loved the dress itself though!

Loved this dress.
I wore this dress for my wedding rehearsal dinner in June 2016. The gold shimmer was beautiful and stands out against other dresses. The pink is a very pale shade but compliments the gold and hints of white perfectly. I paired this dress with gold pumps and it was just the right amount. I highly recommend this dress!

Fit great on my petite frame!
This was my first rental experience and I was really skeptical because I am very petite and short (4'9" and 100lbs). I was sure this dress wouldn't fit me but it did! It fit very well and the length was perfect on me. I loved this dress!! I liked the metallic on it which looked more gold than what the picture looks like. It wasn't too snug that I had to worry about bulges but I wore spanx anyways. I paired it with gold sandals and a cute gold metal box purse. I wore it for a wedding at a church and reception at a golf course. It was perfect! I got plenty of compliments!

Classy for a good cause
This dress fit very well, was comfortable, and very classy for the fundraiser event I wore it to. The length was nice for me given I am pretty short. I had a 3-4" sparkle/gold strappy heel that went perfect. The material looks rich and is still fun, and covers enough to still be appropriate. The only reason I did not give this dress 5 stars is for 1) the sleeves: I am not a fan of cap sleeves at all, and I should have looked closely and paid attention to that when renting. I don't have the best arms for these, and it tends to show the fat between your arm and your chest (you can kind of see this in my pic); 2) Another review indicated she wore a size down. I am a little bigger in the tummy area and even though I wore spanx, wearing a size down was not going to be an option. It is a little tighter around the mid-section (at least for me), and keep in mind that if you wear spanx with this dress and sit down, the crease will show; 3) Lastly, the color shows in the picture as ivory with gold shimmer/pattern. However, in reality, it is a pink background with a little ivory and gold pattern. I was somewhat concerned about this when I saw it on the hanger, but I wore it anyway, and am amazed at how it looks so different in the pics!! This could be a pro or con for you, depending on what you're looking for. Just be aware, and don't frown without trying it on at least. :)

Perfect dress for my Bridal Shower!
I wore this dress for my Bridal shower and it really made me stand out as the bride. The size 12 fit me comfortably around my problem areas but because I am 5'0 the fit around my shoulders was too loose. I had to pin the extra material so that it did not bunch up around my shoulders.

Fit great. I have long legs, so sitting sometimes it was definitely shorter than I would've liked but it wasn't an issue. I would definitely recommend this for a wedding or a party!

I wore this dress for my bridal shower. It was perfect. It looked bridal without being a white dress
I ordered a 2 and 4. I chose to wear the 2 because the bottom was a little loose. More like a sheath. The top was a little snug in the arm area. It was more comfortable to stand in than sit. The zipper scrunched up when I sat. Totally worth it though. I received so many compliments and I truly felt like a blushing bride! You will NOT be disappointed!

I rented a dress for the Derby! It also happened to be my birthday.
This was a really cute dress that I rented to wear it to the Derby, but unfortunately, I did not wear it because it fit big on me. I ordered a size 2 and 4, and even the 2 looked big on me. I've never worn Lilly Pulitzer dress, so I wasn't sure if her dresses run really small or big, but I probably could've fit perfectly in the 0. I feel like the 2 just sat on my body, and didn't really show any of my curves, but I did like the sleeves.. I felt like they highlighted my arms.

I wore this for a rehearsal dinner and received so many compliments on it! It was fun, and flattering! Another A+ for rent the runway! I am typically a size 4, and wore a 4 in this dress. The fit was perfect!

Beautiful print
Rented this dress at the last minute because I loved the print but I was only able to order one size, I would have liked to have tried on the 2 to compare. But overall I think for a sheath dress, it fit fine.

Perfect dress for a wedding (AND COMFORTABLE TOO!)
Wore this dress to a rustic, country wedding, pairing the dress with nude wedges. I wore the 6 - could have worn the 4 if I wanted it to be super form fitting, but the 6 was perfect, and very comfortable to sit-in at the ceremony and during dinner and then hit the dance floor in all night! It was also very warm out (summer wedding) but the dress was perfect for the weather - not heavy and if there was any sweating (from endless dancing), it didn't show! The color was perfect too, shimmery gold and hot pink - I'm very fair skinned so I was concerned that the gold would wash me out but it didn't (suggestion: it would look even better with a spray tan). I received so many compliments too (friends and strangers!) I would definitely recommend this dress!

Cap sleeves ruined it
The photo is misleading and is the only rental from RTR where I was left underwhelmed. I love the material and print BUT the cap sleeves ruined this dress. The sleeves were far too long and I had to jerry rig and safety pin the sleeves to get the dress to fit. Thankfully I have long hair that covered up my ghetto tailoring. If I owned this dress it would have to get altered before it could be worn.

Misfit dress - couldn't wear - too bad!
Despite the beautiful material and cut, I was unable to wear this dress for the intended occasion. I normally wear a 0 but in this dress my boobs were suffocating and I couldn't lift my arms because of the way the sleeves are cut. The 2 was baggy, especially under the boob area and looked even worse in photos. Super disappointed! Luckily RTR has excellent service and rushed out a new style ASAP!

Perfect Lilly dress for a special party or bridal event!
This picture was from trying on the dress the day before our event. We had a second wedding reception after an intimate wedding celebration and I wore this dress. I had actually tried to purchase it but our Lilly store didn't have my size. The dress is very well made and fits like a dream. The cap sleeve is incredibly flattering and the neckline is modest but sexy. Perfect for a shower, rehearsal dinner, or fun night out!

I received compliments everywhere!
I wore this dress to a San Diego summer wedding. It was beautiful. The details are great, very comfortable, and great for dancing. It fit just a tad bit large, but not enough to say that it runs large… I think that's just the curse of being petite in regular sizing. I received so many compliments in this dress everywhere I went that day - from wedding guests to vendor staff and even random strangers on the street. My husband actually wants me to buy it because he likes it so much! My only complaint about the specific dress I wore was that it had a bit of an odor to it that made me self-conscious… but I guess that's what happens when other people have worn the dress before you.

Wished it fit
I really wanted to love this dress but the fit just wasn't right. I had rented it for the baptism of my goddaughter. The fit was very tight in the chest area and the only way to accomodate that was to pull the dress up, which then made the shoulder area huge. Dress has a very metalic finish.

Sorority Preference Day
This is my first RTR. I rented for the preference day at the University of Arizona (Bear Down) I'm a very small person to begin with. I normally wear a junior's size zero/double zero, so I knew this dress wasn't going to fit perfectly. I added a belt to sort of tighten it up, but had to keep adjusting it since there was soo much extra fabric. I'm a 32B and this dress was extremely loose in the chest area for me. I ended up wearing three(!) bras with some extra bra pads shoved in just to sort of fill out the top. I also had to use fashion tape to smooth down the neckline. The material was super easy to walk in, especially in 100 degree Arizona heat, it didn't even show a lick of sweat! One thing is that the pink is a lot more vibrant in person than when photographed, I attached a photo that shows the "true" pink. I only mention this because I really liked the pink in the photos and had my nails painted to match and that just didn't happen with the color the dress actually is. I did love the gold details and they shine in even the tiniest bit of light! I loved the cap sleeves, they look so nice on me, but I know lots of women dislike them. I'm only five feet tall and was extremely happy to see that the dress didn't reach all the way to my knees. It does ride up a bit when sitting down, but I preferred that. Also, I paired with very simple accessories: a dainty light pink belt with a gold bow clasp, two small gold bracelets, simple gold rings, and gold studs. I also work strappy nude cocktail heels. The dress really speaks for itself. I received lots of compliments from the sorority women. Overall I loved this dress and would have loved it even more it had fit properly. I wouldn't recommend to someone who is very petite like me, but it is easy to manage and I made it work. If I actually owned this dress, I would get it altered to a very tight fitting First Lady kind of dress. I only gave it four stars because the color is so different in person.

The Customer service staff helped make my RTR fantastic when my ordered arrived late. Great company
Dress was perfect for hosting an event and photographs beautifully! I loved the color and especially the metallic look as well. As in other reviews if you are larger chested it will feel a bit tight in the chest but manageable. It seems many Lilly dresses that are 4-6 don't a compensate larger bust sizes comfortable however it is manageable. If the 6 was available I would of rather had that size instead of the 4 just for a more comfortable fit. I would rent this dress again for a night out, brunch, or wedding!

PINK and GOLD dress, not white!!!
LOVED this dress!! Just wow. I worried it wouldn't fit me right with my hourglass figure, but this style accommodated my large bust and butt!! Surprisingly as well the dress looks totally different in person. Very pink and gold and not white at all in person. It was unique and gorgeous at the wedding I attended and I received plenty of compliments from strangers. The clutch was Lilly Pulitzer as well, and I wore the Elizabeth Cole Bacal earrings. Loved that everything coordinated so well in my outfit! My second experience with renttherunway and I will never buy a dress for an event again!!!! This website is genius. E

The dress is more pink than it appears in the picture. It is definitely short for someone 5'9''. I couldn't have gone any shorter and still be respectable. Iloved the dress and the pattern for a daytime spring wedding.

Flattering and Festive
I LOVED this dress. I knew that I didn't want to wear white for my bridal shower, but wanted to wear something pretty, feminine, and special. This light pink/gold/silver dress was just the ticket! It ran true to size and flattered my athletic build. The length is perfect for standing/dancing, but the only minor downside was that this isn't a great dress to sit in, as it rides up a bit when seated. I received so many compliments and will definitely rent this again! (As an FYI as several people asked -- the fabric is not stretchy.)

I got a ton of compliments when I wore this dress! loved it!
this dress was perfect to wear to homecoming however I ordered sizes 2 and 4 when I should have ordered a 0. It was a little baggy around my waist and hips area. But other than that I get a ton of compliment on it!

the dress was just eh.
This dress ran wayyy too big. I am usually a 4, and even the 2 was way too big. A 0 probably would have been perfect. Otherwise, this was a very comfy dress. It was much more pink and gold then it looked in the picture. I thought it would be a baby pink, but it was a darker pink and a really shiny gold. I think it would have been a very gorgeous, flattering dress if I had gotten the right size. but overall, it was just eh.

It was a bit shorter than I expected, but not too short at all. It is more pink than it looks in the pictures.
