Wore this to my brother's rehearsal dinner in Florida. Great fit and vibrant color. Great length and nice sized shoulder straps so your bra is not exposed.

Wish I owned this!
Rented for my daughter's school dance. Needed something to meet dress code, and this was perfect. Wore the size 6, she felt it was longer. Also went with the neon theme. Loved the dress and she wants to rent it again!

Super cute and fun dress
This dress is adorable in person. The color is more bright/vibrant than online, but not overwhelming. I ordered the 2 and the 4. The 2 was a little tight around my arms, but the 4 was baggy in the chest area, so I went with the 2. I wore this dress for a Bridal Shower, and I would definitely rent it again.

Cute for a spring or summer wedding!
The reviews who say this dress runs large are wrong, IMO. I thought the dress was true to size... I wore the 2 (my usual size), but I wish I ordered the 4 as my backup size instead of the 0. Since the fabric has no stretch, I found the waist to ride up a get scrunched more than I would have hoped when I sat down (as you can see in the photo taken near the end of the night). I also kinda felt like the arm holes were a little tight (though I am muscular through the shoulders). The fabric is high quality and thick, the color is very bright, and the cut is nice and actually fairly modest. It's definitely on the short side (I found it perfect at 5'3"), so taller girls be aware. Even though it wasn't perfect, it was easy to dance in and I did get a lot of compliments.

Pretty, fun dress
Runs small, like most Lilly dresses. I felt like my boobs looked too big in it, but generally it was a good fit. High quality material, pretty color.

Loved the bright color!
Loved the bright color of the dress! I typically wear a size 2 but I wore the size 4 which fit my waist but the bust was still a bit large so I had a wear a very padded bra to make it fit me well. But I loved it and got lots of compliments!

Great Summer Dress
I wish I would have been able to wear this for the event I was attending, but the weather was extremely cold and windy and had to go with a different option. This dress is fun, both in pattern and color, and would be perfect for events during the summer. The pink is more hot pink than I anticipated, but I still loved it. I am a 36DD and did not feel like my chest was spilling out of the top. I really enjoyed the lightness and movement the dress had.

Neon flower power!
I love this dress so much! It fit well but was a bit snug in the chest area. My breast have grown since I am a nursing mother now. It is a short dress and I wore nude wedges with it. It was a beautiful dress and comfortable to wear to an outside party.

Big pop of color
Very bright, neon, but definitely cute, one of the straps to hook your bra in was broken on the dress I had, which was disappointing, it poofs out just enough

Beautiful & Bright
Fits snugly up top if you're busty like I am, but it's a beautifully vibrant color and perfect for spring or summer events. I'm 5'10" and it was short but not inappropriately so. Best part? You can wear a regular bra with it!

Show off your bright side!
I absolutely love the look of this dress. It was great for a southern summer wedding. The fit was okay. I am 5'10 and fairly athletic and had a few problem areas. I'm comfortably a 36B and could have worn the dress without a bra, but the boobie area was fairly flat and compressed everything, so I opted for a bra (and slightly less breathing room) in order to have 2 defined boobies. I also have very broad shoulders so I'm wondering if that's why the armholes were verrrry tight. Overall so much fun and very comfortable to eat, drink and dance in (your belly is not compressed or showing).

Great Dress!
Great Dress! I rented this dress for best friends rehearsal dinner in FL... Loved the color, especially for a preppy beach town. The top fit snug, but that worked out in my favor as I am flat chested and this gave me shape. If you are petite this is a great dress option!

Birthday Date Dress
I ordered a size 2 with the 4 as my back up size. I could fit into the 2, but it was pretty tight at the waist/middle. It fit me perfectly in the bust (I'm a 34B). I wore the 2 for my date, but honestly the 4 would've been more comfortable. I let my ego cram myself into the 2. Lol. The 4 was roomier in the waist but slightly too big in the bust line and a tad longer than the 2. I am a pear shaped and in the neighborhood of 128-131 pounds. Order a size UP as your back up. There isn't any give at the waistline. Length wise both sizes were good...above knee with the 4, mid-thigh with the 2. I am almost 5'4". I think really tall or busty women may find this style too short or too restricting. Overall, I loved the style and color of this dress. I felt feminine and pretty. Plus, I received many compliments.

Much brighter than the photos!
This is a beautiful dress that I wore to a rehearsal dinner. The pink is so much brighter in person than the photos - more like a neon electric pink, which made it so much fun. Perfect for spring or summer events. For girls with large busts, you may want to size up, was very tight across the chest and arm holes

This was perfect for the rehearsal dinner!
This size 4 fit like a glove! It was just slightly tight in the armpit area, but not so much that it impacted how I felt in the dress. I got so many compliments on it and I love how bright and fun it is! The length was just right for my 5'6" frame and I wore it with nude pumps. The fabric is a little thick, so if you have an event that is outside on a hot summer day, I would choose a style with a lighter fabric.

Perfect birthday party dress!
I wanted to wear something new and fun for my birthday, and I am so glad I chose this dress. I have always been a Lily fan, and this dress did not disappoint. The pink is a neon pink, perfect for the summer. It fit perfectly and was so comfortable. I wish I could have kept it!

Compliments!
Neon is very in right now -- Especially when you're attending an all womens event. Drab colors are not welcome at Bridal Shower's. I wore this to a Country Club for my sisters shower and it was perfect. Great length, bright and very comfortable. I did decide to belt it because I felt like it needed something.

Loved the color of the dress!
First time renting from RTR - great experience! I wore it to a Kentucky Derby-themed formal. Loved the color of the dress (definitely fluorescent pink) and got many compliments. Could have worn the 8 but it was a bit tight in the rib area, but the 10 was a little big in the chest, as well as a little longer than I would have preferred. Overall I was very happy though!

Very flattering a line shape!
I wear a 4-6 and chose the 4 for this occasion. The dress is very flattering for my pear shape and the fabric is substantial and very luxurious. The dress is a bit short and I'm only 5'4" but I'm thinking that it wouldn't be a big deal for someone who was younger.

The Joslin Dress was perfect for a day at the horse races. A great spring dress--lots of compliments
I usually wear a 4-6 in Lilly. I rented both & they both fit really well. The 4 fit well but was a little snug around my ribs. The 6 fit well, but the chest was a little large. The dress was much brighter than the picture, but I absolutely loved it. I paired it with an orange purse & it looked fabulous. This is a great summer/spring dress and is perfect for a formal or informal event. I would definitely rent this dress again, because it was fabulous.

I received so many compliments on this dress for a Derby party.
it is MUCH brighter in person, it is neon pink. I was skeptical b/c it was so bright but it looked great indoors and I got numerous compliments. It was a little snug in the chest (I'm a 34B) but it flared out in the hips quite a bit so I didn't wear a bra and went with the 0. It is also a little short, but I still wore heels with it.

Great for a horse race
So this dress fits really weird. I usually wear a 0, and a 0 fit for the most part, but was really tight on my chest (My chest is not small, but not big by any means). Also, the 'boobs' part, the apex of the boob was really high. Like, whose boobs are up that high? I mean, I don't have low boobs by any means, and I even wore it with a pushup bra to try to make up that difference, but there was still some gaping, though the 2 even was kind of tight across my chest. It was like it had enough room for my chest, but in the wrong places. The 2 also was way too big on my waist. I realize I have kind of a weird body type in that I'm small but happen to also have some chest, but this was unusually odd. Also, it cut into my shoulders/armpits quite a lot and was chafing by the end of the day. But - it looked really cute in pictures and didn't LOOK like it didn't fit. But, had I been able to try it on in the store I would not have purchased it. Lucky that I got a backup size because my normal size did not fit. I would say it runs small, but it just runs kind of weird.

Pop of color for MA graduation
The dress was more neon than pastel pink (what I expected from the photos), but I loved the pop of color at my MA graduation in DC. The dress hid my curvy hips, kept me cool, and extremely comfortable! I usually wear a 6 but I wore an 8 because I was a little bloated from all the sodium and celebratory meals I'd been eating.

Fun dress with a classic A-line shape
I loved this dress. I rented it to wear to a wedding, but was surprised by how casual the fabric was when I got it. It is really thick (almost like upholstery fabric) and is not shiny at all like it photographs. I still loved it and ended up wearing it to the more casual rehearsal dinner instead of the wedding and wearing my second dress I ordered to the wedding. I usually wear a 4 but got the 2 as a back up size and found that the 2 fit better in the bust. The 4 had extra fabric that I did not need in the bust and it poked out a little awkwardly since I did not fill it, so I was glad I had the 2 to wear instead despite it being a tad tight in the arm hole area. A great dress that is a really fun color and it got lots of complements!! I was really sad to send it back!!

LOVED this dress. It's the first thing I've ever rented from RTR and now I'm hooked!
Wore this dress to my masters graduation. Fit like a glove. I wore it with tan wedge sandals and a bright green bow belt. Bright, summery, and eye catching. I ordered the 6 and the 4, but the 4 was great. The length was good for the occasion and it was so bright I didn't feel the need to wear any jewelry. As a petite size I was worried the torso/straps wouldn't fit right, but it fit perfectly. Made my graduation so memorable! Thanks RTR!

Center of attention dress
I wore this dress for my graduation party after finishing my masters degree. It fit beautifully and was so comfortable. I got compliments throughout the night and got to share my love of rent the runway with so many people! The dress fits very true to size and the color is gorgeous. It was so bright and definitely made sure that I stood out all night long in the best possible way.

Colorful and fun! great for spring and summer events
This dress is much brighter and more vibrant in person, I loved it! I wore it the the Naval Academy's graduation and it fit the event perfectly. I loved standing out next to all of the midshipman in blue and white. The neckline is great for chesty girls, I'm a 34DDD and it covered just the right amount. I got the 2 as a back up size and it was VERY tight in the rib cage/chest so I wouldn't size down if you are bigger in that area. I got so many compliments all day on the dress and asking where I got it - I think it convinced quite a few people to start renting their outfits! I would definitely rent this again!!

Have you ever been to the marine core ball or something like it? I cant decide if i need to wear a gown or if i could go for a conservative knee length dress.
AnnieJuly 6, 2014
Gown for sure. I see women wearing club dresses, and other such dresses, however it is a formal event, your dress should reflect that. I recommend a long dress, and definitely not a prom style dress.

Bright, fun dress!
Loved this dress! I wore it for my wedding shower. The color is a bright neon pink, but it looked great and I received lots of compliments. It even had little snaps under the straps to keep your bra straps in place! The fabric is thicker and raised on the pattern which made it feel expensive. I wore a size 10 which is what I normally wear in David's Bridal dresses.
