Perfectly pretty and appropriate!
This dress was absolutely perfect! I rented it to wear to my boyfriend's graduation which was in LA in May so it was pretty warm. The top of the dress is pretty tight and the fabric is cotton and not very stretchy so definitely make sure you pick your correct size and if you have a larger bust think about sizing up. I have broader shoulders and a broader back and the zero was pretty snug on me, i would get the 2 next time. The color and the floral print is so pretty and much more interesting and intricate in person. I wore it with nude stripy heels and it was great, i felt really pretty and sexy yet totally appropriate to be around parents etc. The length is not too short and not too long, I'm 5'6" and it fell nicely above the knee.

Literally the perfect dress!
I wore this for my sorority's formal and it was perfect! A little tight in the chest but it wasn't uncomfortable or detrimental at all. Such a cute dress and I loved wearing it!

I loved this dress! It fit me true to size, however... the top portion was a bit tight but it was fun and comfortable :)

The dress was perfect for a spring wedding outside. Fit like a glove! Loved it.
Wonderful boning in the front to flatten out the middle and then the perfect amount of flare to show of curves and leg.

Sweet, flirty, modest dress - Perfect for a family wedding!
I wore this dress for my wedding rehearsal dinner and it worked beautifully. I received a ton of compliments. I went a size smaller because the waist in the 8 is a little big for me. It's definitely not designed for busty hourglass women, but it looked just fine in the smaller size (although it was a little tight in the bust all night). With a pair of heels, this is a great dress to show off legs without looking too sexy. Also, as many women mentioned, the fabric is much more casual than it looks on the model. It's a very soft cotton. So if you're going to a formal cocktail party, this might not be the dress. But for our tiki-hut, sunset beachside dinner (or for a daytime-garden wedding), it was perfect.

Dress arrived clean and perfectly pressed. Everyone loved it.
The dress has boning, which was uncomfortable and why I choose to wear the larger size.

I'd been looking for an occasion to rent this dress, and it was perfect for Valentine's Day!
It fit great- true to size, and it looks exactly like the picture. It's not the fanciest dress, but it dresses up nicely. I thought it was very flattering: the top fit me snugly, and the dress flared out nicely at the waist and came down to mid-thigh on me.

Loved wearing this dress!
Fit was perfect..I generally fit into size 0 but in this case 2 worked out better! I was a little worried given this was my first rental but it I'm glad I rented it. It looked really cute for my son's birthday party, I would recommend renting it :)

This Lilly Pulitzer dress was the perfect choice for Easter Sunday
This dress was incredibly comfortable, was a nice length, and paired well with my pearls and nude heels. I ordered the 10 and the 12 but ended up wearing the 12 because I have a broad rib cage and shoulders, so the 10 was a little bit snug. I would definitely rent this dress again.

So perfect!
Loved the dress, the 0 and two both fit but 2 was a little longer. I rented the suggested Kate Spade earrings to go with the dress but they came broken. I got a new pair the very next day.

Great day dress!
The dress fit pretty true to size. I could have worn the 2 or the 4 but the 4 was a bit loose in the top and I think the fitted bodice was flattering. The dress isn't quite as shiney as it looks in the photos online so it was a bit more causal than i thought. It still looked nice dressed up with gold sandals but it also would look nice with more casual shoes.

Perfect for a southern steeplechase tailgating party!
I was pretty happy with the dress. It was perfect for the occasion and was generally comfortable. I did feel that it was a little too snug in the bodice and needed assistance to zip it up. The other size I ordered was 4, so I am not sure how the 8 would have fit. I also loved being able to ship it to my destination (BOS - BNA) - thanks RTR!

Perfect for the season
I wore this dress for my sisters graduation and the party afterwards. It was great, I ordered a 4, but I definitely could have gotten away with the 2. I had to wear a strapless bra and still had room in it so it didnt fall down. It looks more shimmery in the picture than it did in person, but I still loved it!

This was the prefect length and fit for my wedding shower.
I was really happy with the fit of the dress. I have a full chest so I was a little corcern with a strapless dress. However I had no problems. The dress has a builtin support that help keep the dress up. The length and material were perfect for my outdoor wedding shower.

Hm what should I wear to Gold Cup? Lily of course!
I loved this dress! Great fit! I was able to wear the smaller size (2 instead of 4) since the skirt is roomy. The top fit snugly enough that I did not feel like I had to pull it up all the time. It was really comfortable! I wore it all day and would have worn it all night if it wasn't so cold when the sun went down. The color of the dress is slightly lighter than it looks in the picture, but it still matched my white derby hat!

I wore this dress to a wedding. It was a little bit snug and I usually am a size 6. It was a pretty dress and worked well for the occasion. Also, no bra was necessary.

I ended up not wearing the dress!
I ordered a size 8 and 10, but neither was a comfortable fit on top. The dress was also very short. Fabric was lovely, just didn't feel right.

This dress made my engagement pictures unforgettable!
When I saw this dress, I knew I had found my dress for our engagement pictures. The multiple colors and the blue was really gorgeous. The dress fit me perfectly was exactly how I wanted it. I loved the volume on the bottom. Another great RTR rental!

I usually wear a size 2 or XS on top and I couldn't zip this size 2. Suggest getting your backup size a size bigger.

Slightly more "washed" than anticipated
I rented this dress but found that I didn't like the fabric at all. I expect it to be a much richer navy than was actually delivered. The navy as received (on both sizes) was washed out-looking with none of the vibrancy I expected from the pictures. I ended up wearing a back up dress I already had in my closet.

Perfect for a Southern wedding!
I ordered a larger size as I was worried I would overflow a corset-style top... However, the fit was a little loose around the bust (the opposite of my usual problem) and waist (but I have a short torso) so I sized down to the 2 - glad I did! Dress was comfortable for all night dancing, great weight, length & fabric. Highly recommend!

Whoops - meant to say, sized down FROM the 2. this does run large!

Seeing the look on my daughters face when she tried on the dress...was priceless! She not only looked terrific she really felt great in the dress!
So this was the very first dress I ordered from RTR. My daughter had a Batmitvah and I just knew that it was going to be the first of many so I didnt want to be spending all this money on dresses she would never wear again. I found this dress for her and she not only loved it but it really looked beuatiful on her. I felt it was very age appropriate too!

Got lots of compliments!
Great dress. It fit like I expected. The bodice was very fitted--so if you're not sure of your size in Lilly dresses, I'd suggest definitely ordering two. The skirt was flared but not too poofy. It was flattering. The pictures on RTR made the fabric look a little shinier than it is. The dress is regular cotton--but dressy enough for a wedding. I wore hot pink shoes with it and put on a blazer when it got chilly outside.

Great fun dress!
The dress was wonderful. It fit me perfectly. I don't mind a little boning and a smaller bust area. The structured top fit like a T. The skirt was very flirty and short, but not the point where I had to worry about anything. The fabric is just that, fabric. Nothing special there, but the pattern and colors are very pretty and feminine. Loved the dress!

Pretty, yet casual
This was my back up dress. It is made very well and the bodice is perfect. A bra would not be needed as it holds everything in perfectly. I was going to wear this to a day wedding, but my other dress was a bit more dress. This is suited best for a shower or grad party. The fabric is not shiny like it appears on the model, it's more of a cotton.

Personally I thought it ran a little small... always have trouble being taller with the length of dresses... it was on the shorter size, but not too short.

Walking into my bridal shower in the perfect girly dress!
This dress was really cute and perfect for my bridal shower. I didn't want to wear your typical ivory dress--save that for the wedding day! It looks like it has a sheen to it in the picture online, but when you get it in person it doesn't. However, it was very comfortable and very cute!
