This dress was super flattering and was pretty good at staying in place for a strapless
Very reasonably priced rental for a great dress! Very flattering and had enough going on to not need many accessories. Loved the pockets too! Color was a little darker than I expected (was wearing for engagement party) but very flattering.

Beautiful dress, flattering fit and POCKETS!
This dress is beautiful! I wore it to a daytime Food and Wine fest. The top is lined in satin to the waist which made it warm but it was also 85 degrees outside. Lots of compliments. Wish it were mine!

Great styles and so easy to use the mobile site.
Was too small in the top so I did not get to wear, but otherwise beautiful dress. Better for slim figures.

Pretty color, nice dress, wore for an outdoor brunch, I think it runs small in chest area
Usually I wear a 4 or 6 so the 8 was a little big . This is a nice dress but u can tell it's been worn a lot ... The bottom hem looks a little beaten up ... Has loose strings etc ... I love the pockets and the color of the dress is very pretty if u like golds and beige ... It's got very subtle golden tones that I think make your skin look pretty. If u have a little hint of a tan the dress will highlight it

Structured dress, lovely detail great material & pockets!
Received tons of compliments while wearing this on a date night while on vacation. Fit very well and the material was extremely flatter. Not sure it would have been appropriate with high heels as it was a little short but I'm sure I could have pulled off a low heel and not looked trashy. Definitely recommend however the specific dress I received had a bleach stain and a hole in it. I safety pinned and no one noticed.

I felt like this dress was custom made for me!
The material is high quality and has a hint of sparkle to it which makes the dress a little fancier. I loved that the inside of the top has a slip resistant band so that it doesn't fall down. This dress fit like a glove!! I got tons of compliments at my bridal shower. You won't be disappointed with this rental

A little worn
The dress runs small so I had to size up -- but the larger size fit great and looked lovely. I was a little upset to see that the dress appeared a bit worn. I could tell it was a popular rental when I received it. Overall experience was good-- I would not rent it again though.

Very comfortable little dress!
I wore this dress for my wedding rehearsal dinner and it was perfect for the occasion. I ordered a size 0 and 2 as a back up, but the dress runs big so even the 0 was a little big. Thankfully RTR included double sided tape in the package and it did the trick. This dress is very comfortable and the pockets are awesome! Highly recommend!

2nd RTR Experience- Not disappointed!
More rosy pink gold than true gold; not white, but overall, great color! I guessed the dress must run large, b/c I am normally a 2, and the 0 fit! I based that decision off a fellow reviewer ;)

Overall nice dress
This dress was nice and received a lot of compliments. I would size down, the 6 was huge and the 4 was a little loose, wish I had the 2. The boning wasn't a problem. Since I'm straight and slim, this dress made my bottom look larger because of the fuller skirt. Pictures are deceiving.. this dress isn't white, its stripes of beige and light brown. The embellishment on top is beautiful though. Received it a little wrinkled but just steamed it out. Wore with a strapless bra, regular underwear, and nude heels.

pretty, classic dress!
i really enjoyed the dress. didn't realize exactly how full the skirt was though so it felt a little too dressy for the occasion i wore it to. i'm a pretty true size 4 so i went back and forth between ordering my second size as a 2 or 6. glad i went with the 2 because while the 4 fit, it was a little loose in some areas. definitely size down if you're in the same bind!

I saw the dress and knew I had to get it for the wedding I was attending. Overall, the dress ran a little big. I usually wear a size 4 but the 2 fit perfectly.

so it runs big?

Hi Becca! We consider this running true to size! I would select your normal dress size and then size up for your back up size

I feel like it ran a little small, but then again, i have a larger bust for someone whos 5'3". I do wish the hem was a little shorter but all in all it was a great dress. True to the photo.

Adorablet but runs small
I wore this dress for my engagement party and got so many compliments. I am usually a perfect 8 and the 8 was incredibly tight in the bust. I am a B cup, so not overly large up top. Luckily I ordered the 10, so that fit on top but was not as fitted as I would have liked at the waist. Probably best for small busted, but adorable!

This dress runs so small! It is such a cute dress though but it was so tight around the bust area that I couldnt even wear the dress and had to wear my back up dress. RUNS SMALL!

Everything, from receiving the package to wearing the dress to sending it back. It was all so easy!
This dress is spectacular! I have never worn a designer dress and I see what I have been missing. It is such a well made dress, from the stitching to the material that it is made from to the built in corset.I received so many compliments regarding the dress. Besides the fact that it is beautiful, it is a very comfortable dress to wear. And I love the pockets in the front of the dress. If I had the choice, I would have bought the dress! It does run a teensy bit small as I am usually a 0, but the bust part was too tight on me, so I went for the 2. Thank goodness RTR allows you to order a size up or down for free :)

Perfect for my Rehearsal Dinner!
I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner. The style and cut/color were perfect. It's a little more gold than I thought it would be, but I really liked that. The only problem was the fit. I have rented 2 other Lilly Dresses and I wore a 4 in both of them. I needed a 6 in this one because the chest area was so tight I couldn't zip up the 4 all the way. Because I had to go up to a 6, the dress was pretty loose everywhere else as the material doesn't stretch. It was still cute though and the right look for my wedding rehearsal dinner. I would size up in this dress but know that it might not fit correctly elsewhere depending on your body type!

Dressing down for the office
I rented this dress for a date, and eventhough I love the fit, it's not right for the event I had in mind. The fabric has a sheen to it that doesn't show up in the model's photos (but does in the other review pictures), and this makes it better suited to a more formal event I think. I tried to customize it down with a nude belt and neon shoes and i'm not sure if that's quite worked. What do you think??

Great idea with the belt and shoes. You look beautiful and I hope the date worked out! :)

How great I felt wearing this dress at my bridal shower!
I was very nervous this would not fit because the 8 was not available. I rented just the 6 and it was a close call but I was able to wear without a bra because of the boning in the top. I usually wear between a 6-8. I received so many compliments on this dress and it photographed beautifully. Very flattering as well!

Everyone loved the dress!
I got a lot of compliments while wearing this dress. I was self-conscious, however, because I have a large chest and needed a bigger size. I ordered a size 2 and a 4, which are the sizes I typically wear, but needed a 6 for the chest area, but I'm not sure how the 6 would have looked on my waist.

This dress was the perfect length and weight for our outdoor garden party last spring. I kept my accessories minimal, pairing it only with simple gold earrings, a cocktail ring and pink lips.

Lovely dress, very flattering!
I wore this dress for a wedding shower my fiance's family threw for me. The muted colors were perfect for a "bridal" look, but the details kept it interesting. It looks classy and well-made.I got SO many compliments about the dress, most people couldn't believe that such a dress was available to rent on short notice. I paired it with accessories from RTR as well.

I was hesitant about this dress at first, but ended up getting sooo many compliments on it! I am so happy i wore it. It was for a school dance in the winter and the off white color worked great for winter. I wore it with some nude heals.

Everyone loved it, and my mystery bling matched perfectly!
I am very petite, but busty. The zero fit perfect in the waist, but was too tight up top, so I had to go up a size. If I was a C or smaller the zero would have been amazing. Still got lots of compliments though!
MaryMay 27, 2014
I am short and busty as well... How did the dress do on staying power? Did you wear a strapless bra? Or was the bodice tight enough you were able to get away with no bra, despite bust size...?
KaraMay 28, 2014
It was tight enough that I did not need a bra! And it did hold up fine throughout the night with the size 2, it was just a little larger in the waist. The 0 fit me perfect in the waist but was too tight up top. Definitely order your size, then one size up.

I loved the dress! Perfect for this mid-summer golf course wedding. I received a ton of compliments.
The colors and detail were beautiful, and everything I expected! I usually wear a size 2 but after reading the reviews I decided to size up. The 4 fit perfectly. I did not have to pull the top up (good news for us bustier ladies) and the dress was light weight so I was comfortable sitting outside in the sun and dancing the nights away. You can dress it up with great heels and jewelry or make it casual with some wedges or flats; either way, it is impossible not to feel confident and beautiful in this dress.

I wore this dress to my cousin's wedding and received numerous compliments.
I loved the detailing of the dress and the pockets were great! I usually wear a 2 or a 0 in dresses but went a size up, 4, since other reviews said it runs small. I am so glad I did! It was very tight in the bodice and I wish I had ordered a 6 as a back up. Overall, I really liked the dressed but in the future would order a bigger size.

I loved this dress it fit perfectly. It ended up being more formal of a dress than i had expected from the pictures and it is a little longer than i like my dresses but that's mostly all Lilly Pullitzer's in general! Colors are beautiful and I love how classic it was!

Too tight
They didn't have the next size up available, so I got the 2 and a 4. Im a 36C and boy was it tight. Too bad because it was totally cute! It could be dressed up or down. I wore it with heels. I'm tall and the skirt was a little short like 5 inches above my knees. I wore boy shorts under it and felt fine. Goes great with nude heels!

I loved this dress. It was a little snug, but was very flattering and fun!
The dress runs a little small, but overall, it was a good fit. The length is perfect. I wore this for a Young Finance Professionals benefit party, and it was a great fit. Most of the women were in black, but since it's Spring, it was fun to stand out in a softer color and more fun silhouette.

Beautiful dress, really slims from the side, DEFINITELY RUNS SMALL!
Barely zipped and was not flattering from behind because of the tightness at the top. However, looked amazing from the side! It is a very well made dress, just runs small. Beautiful and the flare and pockets on the skirt part are cool.

I don't doubt that it would have looked nice, but it ran small and was super short for a tall girl.
Better for a more formal affair like a cocktail party. Too shimmery and structured for a SoCal graduation. But really pretty! Didn't end up wearing it.

Amazing dress!
I absolutely love this dress. I rented it for my graduation rehearsal and paired it with the Antique Accent Cuff and Kate Spade's Flicker Gold Monette clutch, as well as nude pumps. It was absolutely stunning! I did not have to wear a bra under the dress, the material was thick enough where it held everything in anyways. To say that my dress stood out in a sea of plain white lace dresses would be an understatement. I received compliments on it all day and when I went out to dinner after the hostesses all couldn't get over how much they loved my outfit! Definitely a head-turner. I recommend going a size up in back-up, as the dress runs pretty tight around the ribcage and bust.

Lovely, but Better for Cool Weather
I rented this dress for my engagement photo shoot this past Saturday. While the dress is lovely with it's cream/gold colors & pockets (!), the chest was very tight for my rib cage. As a result, I ended up wearing the 8 instead of my usual 6. The material is also very thick and since it was sunny & warm, I opted to wear the other dress I rented instead of this one to avoid suffering & sweating in the heat. I'd love to wear it again maybe for a wedding shower or fall wedding.

Cute & fun.
I would say it's more beige than cream, and the gold isn't as bright as the picture. But it's a really pretty dress, and I love anything with pockets. I was really sad that the material of the 8 puckered at the bottom, and there was a small stain on the stomach, but the 6 was just too small at my ribs (couldn't zip it up). Go a size up, for sure!

I felt so cute in this dress and got compliments all night
This dress was very cute, but also the fit was really small, especially in the chest. Luckily I ordered the larger size 8. Although it turned out to be a little longer and slightly bigger throughout the rest of the dress it still worked for my husbands big night! It was the perfect dress to look like a "hot wife" at his restaurants anniversary party

Cute dress for my bridal shower
I wore this for one of my bridal showers and it was cute. Not my favorite RTR rental, but I was not disappointed. I rented a size four and it was pretty snug in the waist, which was fine for me because I'm small in the waist, but if you're thicker in the middle you might want to order a size up. I loved the nautical, yet neutral vibe and I'm a sucker for dress pockets so this dress was perfect for the event. The bottom of the dress flares out, which I didn't like. It photographs a little weird depending on the angle you're standing at. I tried to manipulate the "poof" look by putting my hands in my pockets to pull the dress down and show my figure. Sometimes I was successful, other times not. Overall I was satisfied, I did not receive as many compliments as usual in while wearing an RTR dress. I recommend for girls who are super petite, almost boyish figures.
