Perfect Preakness dress!
Loved this dress! Super fun & cute. I'm just under 5'10 so it was a little short on me but I like short dresses. And the bottom was structured enough so it didn't blow up in the wind. Also- if you are pear shaped this is a great dress! Fits like a glove up top and then there's plenty of room for larger hips. I loved if!

Perfect Derby Dress
Wore this dress for a Kentucky Derby party-- it's not the typical lilly shift material which makes it run a bit smaller in my opinion with the piping around the ribs making it even more snug-- it is short but for the event I was going to that wasn't an issue-- love d the bright colors and pattern!

Not for large chested women
The dress itself was beautiful! I loved all the colors and pattern and thought it'd be perfect for a wedding. However I am really short and have a 36DD chest... Holy cow I looked horrendous! The high neck and tight fit through the chest/rib cage completely smashed the girls down and out to the sides. On top of that where the skirt flared out on me was a little off, so it made me look like my hips were 2x as big as they actually are. Suffice it to say I did not end up wearing this dress to the wedding. If I was maybe 6 inches taller and had a C chest I think I could've looked great!

Perfect dress for a summer event!
The dress fit perfectly! I received so many compliments. I wore the dress to my nephews graduation party and combined it with a pair of orange espadrilles! My only con was that the white of the dress was a tad dingy. Especially where in the underarm area and straps. So my recommendation is to know your size and order two of the same just in case.

Loved the pattern and the pockets!
Pros: super cute pattern, pockets, fun back cutout, and quality materials/construction Cons: the dress was a little short for my 5'8" frame; also, not the most flattering fit for a fuller figure - I'm a 34D on top with a smaller waist, and the A-line style of the dress with the half-empire waist detail top made me look a little dumpy and larger than I actually am. I didn't like where the dress was fitted at my waist - better for women that are super short-waisted.

Very glamorous day dress that I wore for dining during the day. No cons. Very dainty dress and comfortable.

Super cute
This dress was really cute. I wore it to a baby shower and got lots of compliments. It was really short and ran a bit tight in the bust- probably more suited for a petit girl. I enjoyed wearing it but definitely would go a size up next time!

Good Choice for Bridal Shower
Dress fit well and was a good length, however, the piping around the waist line would roll up slightly when I moved around. Very light and airy though which made it perfect for an outdoor summertime bridal shower.

I wore this to a summertime baby shower and received lots of compliments. I am small busted but the fit was perfect on top and very flattering! Not too short either. I wish I owned this dress!

Preppy and Fun
Wore this for Easter in New Orleans. The only hang up for this dress is that the colors seemed a little faded, otherwise it was perfect! Very comfortable and cute, great for walking now around the city- perfect for spring time!

Everyone loved this dress! Got so many compliments!
I wore this to the Carolina Cup! I'm normally a 2 and I had to size up to a 6, but the wire around the belly made me have to size up to a 6. It's a little tight in the belly and I recommend smaller breasted woman wear this. I'm a 34A and it was very fitted there as well. Over all I highly recommend this dress it's so cute!!

I wore this dress to a charity party & it was very comfortable to wear. I loved the bright colors & I love a dress with pockets! I wore the larger size because the smaller size was too tight on my ribs. Would rent again!

I ordered this dress in case my first choice didn't fit. I ended up wearing it to a birthday party.
The dress fit great. The waist was slightly tight but not so uncomfortable that I couldn't wear it.

Fun floral print brightened up a rainy day!
This dress is one that has been in RTR rotation for a while and it shows. It's not unwearable but it's not the newest dress either. It is super fun and flirty but it also pulled really short on me-be careful!

Cute dress, and POCKETS!
This dress was fun to wear and I got several compliments on it. The pockets are divine! It showed up a little wrinkled but that was nothing an iron and a mimosa couldn't fix. The back cut-out detail was cute, and high-up enough on my back that I could wear a regular bra with no issues. Very fun dress for an outdoor Memorial Day BBQ!

Perfect dress for a preppy rehearsal dinner
The only con was that the size 10 was unavailable for me to order. The 8 was too small and the 12 was a bit large so it would have been perfect to have the 10. Overall it was super comfy fabric and got great compliments all night!

So summer-y!
This dress was bright and light and beautiful. I felt comfortable and pretty. It was perfect for a rustic tented Maine wedding. However, it is not the most figure flattering. If you are a little self-conscious, you might not want to choose this dress. THE DRESS MUST BE IRONED upon receipt.

Cute!
I rented this dress to wear to a Graduation Garden Party and it was a great choice! The style of the dress is chic, the print is vibrant, and the fabric is casual. It was a great dress for looking good but not like you are trying too hard. I went back and forth between the size 4 and size 6, but wore the size 6 because of the length. I am tall (5'11") and appreciated the extra length on the size 6 even though the body of the size 4 fit better and closer to the body. The 6 still fit well, just a bit looser. For those of you shorter than me, I'd say go with the 4 over the 6 if you are on the fence. I highly recommend this dress; it was comfortable (with pockets!) and cute. Thanks RTR!

Awkward fit
The dress did not work for my body type. The dress fit well from the waist down but was too loose and unflattering on top. I have an athletic body type and smaller chest. Maybe it would fit a hourglass type better.

I received so many compliments from my sorority sisters! I stood out from the crowd, and I loved it. Wearing this dress was the perfect way to start out the new school year!
this dress is absolutely adorable. the colors are really bright! this dress runs big; I should have worn a size 4. Although it was slightly big on me, it still flattered my body nicely.

Adorable Flirty Fit & Flare
I rented this dress for my engagement shoot. It was so cute and flirty. A little shorter than I expected, but seriously just precious. I rented a 2 and a 4, but considering the style of the dress, I probably could have gone for a zero.

Cheap rental = High Mileage (and don't expect it to arrive pressed either!).
Fit was baggy up top but just right on waist and skirt length. My plan was to rent this for a dinner out with girlfriends but when I got home to do a quick change - the dress looked like it had been through the "wring" cycle on the washer AND the dryer. I had NO time to get this pressed. Never got to wear this except for just "around the house". Not what I wanted. It is quite apparent that the top has been completely stretched out by tons of mileage larger busted women renters; The dress itself looked worn and tired. Made me think that it wasn't such a bright idea when I've got great summer dresses in my closet that look 100x newer..

Not my favorite...
I rented this dress as a backup for my bridal shower. Definitely meant for ladies with a longer waist than I have. I wear an 8 in just about every dress and this one wouldn't even zip up. The material, while beautiful, has no stretch to it. The bottom of the dress is much fuller than it appears in the picture and made me look I was wearing a cupcake. Beautiful dress, just not for me.

Runs small!
I usually wear a size 0/XSP. I own an XS Lilly dress that fits perfectly and a S that is too big. Imagine my SHOCK when I couldn't even zip up this dress. The floral print is every bit as vibrant as it appears online, although the length is a little shorter than I would have preferred. Oh well... hope to have better luck next time!

Very Flattering
I loved the way this dress fit. I am very tall and have a rather large chest. It was the perfect length for the occasion (Carolina Cup) and even fit up top! I would definitely recommend it.

Tight in the chest if you have larger breasts. I would recommend going up a size if that is something you have an issue with.

This was ok...
Fit was a bit high-waisted and tight in the bust. Overall it was cute- but not lovely or elegant. It'd be good for a laid-back daytime event, like a graduation party or family picnic. Not dressy enough for a wedding or a cocktail party! It was cute, but not my fav.

Fun Spring/Summer Dress
I wore this for a wedding welcome reception in the south. I wore an 8 since I've learned Lilly tends to run small. I'm glad I did otherwise it would not have fit in the chest! I've also found going up a size helps with the length. This dress is the epitome of "girly" and was perfect for a casual summer event. Would rent again.

I was given two Lilly dresses to try because the other one wasn't available in 2 sizes
The dress was cute but not my style. I was looking for something more body-conscious, rather than ballerina-esque. Also, the pattern wasn't my fave.

Pretty, but...
I usually wear a 4-6, but this was so tight in the chest, I couldn't get it zipped. I am usually a 4/6, so it was surprising. I wasn't able to wear this to a brunch. Good thing I had something else.

I wore this dress to film a promotional video for RTROnCampus! And a date with my boyfrien
This was really tight in the bust for me! I ordered the 8 and the 10 and wish I had ordered the 10 and 12 so I could have worn the 12!
