This was for my graduation and this dress made the moment even more special. I felt like cinderella
The bodess of the dress is not too tight and it stays put and I didn't have to fuss with it at all. I loved it!

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.

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!

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.

Beautiful dress!
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!

All around this dress is perfect for a fun cocktail party or wedding. Its conservative enough to be worn for a lot of events, but still has a youthful flair! I loved the dress and especially loved the pockets! :)

Perfectly preppy summer dress for a graduation.
I was thinking Lilly Pulitzer for my boyfriend's graduation last spring, and the moment I saw this dress I knew it was perfect. Unfortunately both my size and the next up were unavailable, so I ignored other users' description of "runs small" and ordered the size down. It fit! The form-fitting torso/bust and mid-thigh length make this dress flattering while appropriate for any work-, family-, or school-related event.

Fantastic fabric!
This fit very true to size and was perfect for my bridal shower. We had a southern pastel theme in December and this was great for that b/c its a very thick material. One thing to note, its not as stark white as in the picture makes it look. The gold stripes stand out more than you'd think. I loved that b/c i am a red head and fairly pale so this was a great color. I can wear between a 2 and 4 in dresses of this cut (tight on top and flair out at the hip) The 4 worked out better for my chest.

I wore it for a winter party outside in Miami and loved it so much I wore it again to a different party the day after. I was afraid it wouldn't work because of my broad shoulders, but it was perfect. Also it has pockets, so extra bonus.

LOVE !!!
Loved this Lilly dress. Now I want to buy it ! Ran true to size for Lilly. I am small-busted, not sure how it would fit large-bust sizes. I am only 5'2 and it looked shorter on me than it does online. Highly recommend this fun party dress.

Just fine.
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!

Perfect Dress for Night & Day!
I wore this to a day time event and paired it with a cropped cream cardigan since it is winter (although unseasonably warm), and then I kept it on and rolled right in to a night out with friends, and this dress was PERFECT for both occasions! The fit is perfect and the gold makes it, in my opinion, very good for the holiday/winter season! I loved it so much I actually just ordered it from Lilly Pulitzer so I can own it!!

I have athletic shoulders and back muscles this dress brings out the best in you, walk with great posture ;)
I am 5'6 & 145 lbs. I do not have a big chest and did wear a strapless with this dress, if I would have worn the size 4 I feel like I could have got without a bra & it would not have felt loose at all. With that said the 6 was comfortable and only twice did I feel the need to ask my friends if my bra strap in the back was visible (both times it was not!). I wear dresses often so I am very comfortable standing out and being over dressed for occasions. I wore this dress to a brunch, a walk on the riverfront on a 60 degree day and was completely comfortable then to a classy dessert and wine tasting, all with wedge heels and a simple shrug from Target (Mossimo). This dress fell within 3 inches of my knee, much longer than on the 5'10 model, (thank God!) It's so classy I considered it for church. The fabric is thick and luxurious and like with all Lilly products- if you know how to carry yourself you will receive nothing but non stop compliments. I PURCHASED THIS DRESS NEW W TAGS FROM EBAY FOR 200$ !! You'll love it!

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!

Perfect!
This was my first RTR experience and I couldn't have been more impressed. I wore this dress for my husband's graduation dinner at a Michelin Star Rated Restaurant. The dress fit perfect! I was worried with the previous reviews that stated it ran small so I ordered a 4 as well, but the 4 was definitely too big. The dress was amazing quality; I was impressed with the lining and boning in the top, the fabric was sturdy. I wasn't anticipating the gold tones, thought it was going to be more khaki, but loved it. I received several compliments on the dress and felt like a princess in it. Very comfortable and the pockets were cute too. Would love to buy it!

The dresses arrived on time, both ready to wear, and it was sooo easy to return them! Plus I saved $250 by not buying it!
I loved this dress! I rented the size 4 and 6...they both zipped up but I would not have been able to eat dinner in the 4 haha. I received lots of compliments all night. I recommend this dress for a wedding, cocktail party or any formal event!
SiobhanDecember 21, 2012
Did you find the length a bit too short at all or was it a good length for a taller lady? I'm 6 feet and considering renting this dress. Thanks!
DanaDecember 21, 2012
I am 5'11" so the length was a little short, but not bad! I wore it to a yatch club cocktail party which is a pretty fancy event and it was great!

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! :)

I felt like a princess at my bridal shower. Thank you renttherunway.com!
I rented this dress for my bridal shower and I felt amazing in it! I ordered it on short notice and couldn't get a backup size and the 6 was kind of tight in the bust area but fit great everywhere else. Because of the fit and the bones in the bodice I felt fine not wearing a bra with it. The material was beautiful and I LOVED that there were pockets in it. I got SO many compliments on it that I think I spent half of my day promoting Renttherunway.com! Thanks for another great experience...I'll be renting again soon!

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.

I loved this dress so much I ended up buying it after! I wore this to a launch party for a new store in the area and it was perfect for summer! It was easy to dance in, love the pockets and the gold/white combo was so summer chic! I could totally see this worn at a rehearsal dinner or at a outdoor affair!

Perfect fit! Felt like it was made for me!
Great fit, loved the pockets and the gold details. Wore this to a bachelorette party for my friend. The skirt was a perfect length for me (I'm 5'2") and it fit great everywhere else. Very sophisticated but also hot.
