The fit was exactly what I was expecting. Women seemed to LOVE this dress and I was complimented all night. It grabs everyone's attention with the bright colors and full bouncy skirt.

Gorgeous dress! I was initially concerned about the beading, because it appeared to be different than that seen on the Lilly site, but the dress was gorgeous and looked even better in person. I wish I could have kept it! It fits true to size and I would highly recommend it!

This dress was perfect except in the bust area. It was a little snug but I am also a DD. Because of the quality of the fabric it left little wiggle room. So if you bigger up top I recommend going up a size.

This dress was so cute...I rented it for a bridal shower I was throwing and got so many compliments. I rented a 2 and a 0 and ended up wearing the 0 since it looked better a little snugger on top. Very fun and preppy perfect for the occasion.

Cute for summer, runs large
This was my backup dress, so I only tried it on at home. Cute dress that is great for pear shape body. I did think it ran a little bit big and slightly long in the middle section, especially for ladies with a shorter torso. If you're deciding between two sizes, I would pick the smaller one, unless you are larger on top. Great dress for a shower or date!

Broke the typical little black dress trend and felt lively all night.
Gorgeous color. Such a fun dress, wore it to a spring wedding and complimented throughout the night. The beading is just enough so you don't need a necklace but can wear cute dangly earrings. I loved the cut of the dress. I'm 5'5 120 and I usually wear a size 2 and this fit perfect. I wear a B cup and the top of the dress was just right, I noticed others reviewed it was tight in the bust, I would expect that for anyone above a C i think. It has a V neck and back but just enough where you can still wear a bra under the dress. This was my first rental and have been hooked on RTR since!

Perfect sz 2, colors not great
The fit was very true to size but the colors just weren't right for a fair, blonde, green-eyed girl like myself. Great dress though!

My 1st time was a good time ;)
This dress rental was my first time with RTR and a girl always remembers her first. ;) The experience was good from beginning to end. My first choice rental didn't work out in terms of fit.(I am a new mom and bustier than I used to be.) I called RTR and they were super accomodating in doing an exchange for this dress. The consultant suggested I size up to be certain that the dress fit in the bust area. I took her advice and the dress arrived the following day by noon. It fit me like a glove and was so comfortable too. The colors were perfect for a Memorial Day party dress to usher in summer. The beadwork was gorgeous and the fabric exquisite (typical of Lily). I wore the dress to a party on Fire Island and got tons of compliments. The deep V was flattering to my bustline and the fuller skirt hid my baby weight. It was great to feel comfortable and look cute, especially as a new mom. I paired the dress with gold strappy sandals and orange fashion jewelry...and the best accessory of all: my 4 month old baby. :)

I wore the Citrus Candy Cane Dress as the hostess of a themed Christmas in July party. I felt like a fancy 1950's housewife. I received compliments all day and night about the classy style and flattering cut of the dress.
This dress is great for a curvy, hourglass frame. The cut flatters a large bust, small waist, and large hips, and it hides a tummy. Plus, the stripes are in all the right places, and they go in the exact right directions! This is my first experience with Rent the Runway, and I will definitely be back.

A little to big in the waist
The dress fit, but just was not as flattering as it could have been. Was big in the waist and would have looked better cinched in a little more. Called the stylists, sent the dress back, and they gave me a credit. So easy!

Great, fun dress!
I wore this dress to my brother's carnival theme rehearsal dinner. It was fun and comfortable! The fit was very true to size. The beading along the neckline is fabulous and the direction of the stripes is very flattering! A great unique dress with a classic Lilly style!

I wore this dress to my rehearsal dinner and I LOVED it! I rented it because the stores had sold out in my size. It fit great - I am a pear so the top fit perfectly and I got a ton of compliments on it.

Senior Formal
I wore this for my senior formal, and it was definitely longer than I had expected it to be. I almost didn't wear it because of that, but my friends encouraged me that I was crazy :) (that's what they're for right?) Either way, it worked out, I had so much fun and the dress ended up looking incredibly flattering in pics.

I wore this to my husband's MBA graduation and it was perfect!
This dress is very well made. The fabric is high quality and the embellished neckline is very pretty. The bright colors are very cheerful. It is comfortable too! I rented the 6 and the 8 and wore the 8 because it was snug in the bust area. I'm always an 8 in Lily P.

The dress was PERFECT for my Bday at the W Hotel!
I always love Lilly, but this dress I could have worn forever! The pink and orange strips made me stand out and feel SO special on my Bday! The beading on the top of the dress was beautiful too!! I received countless amounts of compliments the whole evening...it's a plus that this dress is comfy too! RTR never fails me!

The compliments I got!
I rented this dress for a horse race in Virginia. I knew I had to get something super summery and southern. The fabric was beautiful- heavy silk and the beading was wonderful. Great fit too!

Hi Sarah! I am the exact same size as you are - do the size 4 fit well? Thank you! And I am wanting to wear this to a polo tournament in Houston...in April, the heat! Will it be okay you think?? Thank you!! Sarah

Cute Summer Dress
I am usually a 2 in Lilly dress, maybe a 4 in some of the more fitted styles, but both the 4 and 2 were way too big in this dress. It is a darling dress, with a flattering shape and vibrant colors, but size down!

Cute dress, wrong size
This was a fun little dress, with great detailing at the neckline, but I got the wrong size. I thought I would need a size larger than I normally wear, based on previous reviews. I also thought the fabric was a little thick and heavy for summer, and looking back it probably was a good thing I didn't get the right size, since the weather for the wedding was hot and humid.

Everyone kept asking... where did you get that dress!!?
I'm normally a 6/8 but read that this ran small so I ordered an 8 and a 10... couldn't zip the 8 and the 10 was still snug! Thank goodness for the free second size! Amazing dress- got so many compliments :)

Fun dress for a resort casual event!
I wore this for my fiance's alma mater fundraising event. The dress code was "resort casual" and the first thing I thought of to wear was a Lilly Pullitzer dress in a fun color. This dress is just my style. I am usually a 0 or a 2 in dress sizes, and since this is fitted at the top and flared out at the waist, I figured a 0 would fit because my hips are larger and my bust is small. I was right and the dress fit almost perfectly. It was little tight around my arms but the size 2 was way too big around the waist and bust. It was comfortable while sitting or standing and I felt great in it. The dress was beautifully made and came in great condition! I wish I could have kept it!

Beautiful vacation dress!
Rented this for our holiday in the Caribbean. It's a fun, vibrant color and the beading makes it so much nicer. It was pockets too which is always fun. Loved the fit as it was fitted on top so it's flattering and then comes out so you can eat all you want :)

So many compliments!
I rented this dress for a date party and absolutely loved it! I got compliments on it all night. Lilly dresses are usually pretty true to size and this wasn't an exception. It flares out a lot so if you have larger hips like I do, it's not an issue- I would say when picking out a size just try to fit your top!

Loved this dress. Very flattering and a very "Safe" choice for renting. It is a bit big on top, so the hollywood tape came in handy.

Cute dress!
Super cute dress! I think it looks even better/dressier in person, you can really appreciate the beading (which goes all the way around back), the nice fabric and the pattern. This was my back-up and I didn't wear, but only because the other dress I ordered was absolutely perfect. Does run large, I normally wear a 6 on top, 8 on bottom and the size 6 dress was not even close to being tight. The only thing I didn't like was that the narrowest part of the waist felt a little too high up on me. I think it would have been more flattering if it were lower- I felt like it made my tummy look larger than it is. Now that I look at the model wearing the dress, I see that it's kinda high on her, too. That being said, could be a good option for anyone a few months pregnant, or post-baby.

I will always remember my graduation party because of this dress!
The tighter fit on top and loose after the waist is the perfect fit for curvier girls like me!! The beaded vneck was the perfect accent, and didn't go down too low. I didn't need any accessories; the dress was perfect without them!!

First time using rent the runway and I will definitely be a repeat customer!
I wore this for a horse race in Virginia that my company attended for a social event. Love the fit and flare shape because I have larger hips and this helped to hide those. The only con is I have a very long and skinny waist and I feel like where the dress hit me was a little too high and could have been more flattering in that aspect. The 4 was too large through the chest and waist so I went with the 2. Got a lot of compliments and overall I would rent it again!

Cute, fun dress.
I liked this dress, and it fit pretty well. I think my main complaint is I just didn't "love" the way I looked in it, but I think that was more me than the dress itself. I would recommend this to other women.

The beading added just enough sparkle to really make this dress special.
This dress was perfect for the "striped" theme bridal shower I co-hosted with some girlfriends. It's the perfect summery, yet dressy dress. The fabric is heavy and nice, not just another flimsy sundress. And the fit was perfect. I got lots of compliments and loved how comfortable it was!

Birthday Princess!
I wore this to my birthday brunch and i got millions of complements! Perfect for a day time party. Fun and forgiving in the waist area. RTR was out of my size, so i ordered a size down... the 2 was a bit tight in the chest, but otherwise fit perfectly! This dress made my birthday memorable!
