Perfect dress for a shower!
I received SO many compliments on this dress. The overall fit was great! True to fit like almost all Lilly's. The bust area was definitely snug but not to the point where anyone else would notice! I felt like this dress still gave my body some shape and didn't just lay on me. As others have noted in their reviews, the white trim is a little dull, but that's to be expected from a rented dress and is not noticeable to others (in my opinion). The best part of wearing this dress: I could eat without feeling like I had a food baby that everyone else could see! Would definitely rent this dress again! I

Not as yellow as I thought
This dress was heavier fabric and not as yellow as I was expecting. Also it was very short to be comfortable for me.

My dress fit perfectly, and I felt quite pretty!
I wore this dress to a friend's bridal shower in Pittsburgh. The dress fit very true to size, as most Lilly's do. It was a little large in the bust, but I'm very flat chested so it was to be expected - however it wasn't noticeable. I loved that the dress straps had places so that I could secure my bra straps; the fact that I could wear a normal bra was much appreciated. The dress felt a little short when I was sitting down, and I definitely had to be careful when bending over. However, the length looked fine when standing. It is very fitted in the hips, so it may be right on more pear shaped girls. I'm only giving this dress four out of five stars because the dress seemed a bit worn. The cotton was thinning from so much wash and wear, and in some places the embroidery was coming off of the fabric. The dress had the look of a dress that you bought a little more than gently used at a consignment shop. For the price however, none of this concerned me, as it was a beautiful dress.

Wore this dress to my college graduation and it was perfect! Springy and adorable and surprisingly perfect length considering I'm super short!

Very cute
Flattering fit and perfect for a casual daytime party. It was a little tight in the bust area, so if you're a 36c or above I'd suggest sizing up.

Tight in the chest
This was the backup dress I rented for a friend's spring wedding. I didn't end up wearing it because my first choice fit. The dress was really cute but VERY fitted in the chest.

This dress looked a little worn out. Thankfully I ordered a back up Lilly dress.

Perfect spring dress
I wore this dress for a outside April wedding and a baby shower that were both on the same day. This dress was very comfortable and the material was perfect for the spring. This dress is true to size, I wore the 8 and had the 6 for my back up size. My bra size is a 36C and I had to wear a bra with little padding so the top of the dress wasent to tight. It was a little tight under the arms but it was not too uncomfortable. Since I wore this dress for most of the day i though it would get very wrinkled but it look find! I enjoyed wearing this dress and would rent it again!!

The dress was long enough that I didn't feel inappropriate.

Perfect Bridal Shower dress!
Wore this to a summer bridal shower and it was perfect for the occasion. Dressy enough for the shower, yet had a nice summer look to it. Received lots of compliments! The fit was perfect and wasn't uncomfortable sitting down. Fitted very nicely in the bust, the rest was complimentary down the sides, but not too tight either.

This dress was cute.
I ordered this to wear to an Easter event. The color seemed a bit faded when I got it. It fit OK but it was a little tight. I doubt that was the dress as much as it was my body - haha. But like I say, it was cute.

Perfect for my law school graduation. Only problem: I didn't want to send it back!
I am a size B chest and it was alllllmost snug on my chest. I can imagine this wouldn't work for bigger chested women.

Comfortable and elegant for a summer garden party
I wore this for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary party, which I hosted at my house. I needed elegance and comfort while I moved around juggling caterers, wait staff and a surprise mariachi band. This dress allowed for that. The white trim wasn't as crisp. It was by now more off-white, but it still looked very nice. I wore it with a string of pearls and white high heeled, slip on sandals. The fit is very flattering. It hit me about 4 inches above the knee.

I absolutely LOVED getting to wear this dress! Comfortable but I felt so pretty! Got a ton of compliments! :)
I received a code for a free rental after doing a survey for RTR and I ordered this beauty for the weekend! Unfortunately the weekend that I got it was determined by RTR, so I had nothing exciting going on, but I wore it to work on Sunday anyways! I absolutely fell in love with the dress and I have been searching for one to buy ever since. The entire process of renting was bliss! Not a problem AT ALL! I will definitely be renting for any special occasions from here on out! :)

Graduation
I wore this for Graduation. It was perfect and so comfortable. It didn't run too small but it was a little tight in the chest. And I have a very small chest. I didn't have the extra size with me at the time, but probably should hav worn the four.

Beautiful Dress!!
I wore this dress to a bridal shower and I received lots of compliments. The dress is true to size and was a perfect fit and super comfy. My only complaint would be that there was a small stain that was barely noticeable by the shoulder but I was wearing a cropped sweater and it hide the stain. Other than that I definitely recommend the dress.

did you have a problem with the chest area?i'm a 4 but 34d but your weight so unsure if i need a 6 for back up size
RTRMay 3, 2012
Hi Charmeisha, this dress is a bit fitted across the bust and does not have a lot of stretch. We recommend a larger size for your back up just to be safe!

I love that you get 2 sizes in case one doesn't fit!
I rented this dress for Carolina Cup, which is a horse race in Camden, SC. Everyone dresses up in Lilly Pulitzer and other pastel outfits for the day, so I definitely fit in. The dress is beautiful and fit perfectly. It wasn't too short or too long and the stomach area was forgiving.

Dress was very cute, but area for the bust was a bit tight. The 8 fit better in the bust, but the 6 fit better on my body. Nevertheless I squeezed into the 6 and it was a fun dress.

This dress looked really cute, but was terrible for my curvy frame. The material is heavy and tight around the lower lace detail. I think it would look much better on more narrow/taller girls.

This is a beautiful dress! I received many compliments on it and I just loved the lace detailing. Being 5' 2" it did fall closer to my knees than shown in this picture. It does show wrinkles after sitting in it a while, but that's just the nature of the fabric.
