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.

Great dress! It's so bright and beautiful and comfortable and as soon as I realized it had pockets, I was in love. Definitely made me a Lilly lover!

Perfect derby dress!
I rented this dress for the Denver Derby party and it was a hit. I was super comfortable in 80 degree weather and got tons of complements on that style. This dress fits true to size. My friend used my backup dress by Shoshanna and loved it as well!

He even loved the dress!
This dress is adorable! I rented it for an anniversary dinner with my boyfriend. I felt beautiful from the second I put it on. It is the perfect fit and very flattering. I wore it again the next day as a day dress...That's how much I loved it!

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!

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!

I wore this dress for when I hosted my friends bridal shower. I LOVED it! The fit was great, and I received a lot of compliments!

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 was so happy to share this day with my sister and felt confident in this colorful dress!
I wore this dress to my sister's high school graduation and loved it! I felt so festive and got tons of complements. It looked great in pictures but didn't take away from my sister's special day. I usually wear either a 6 or and 8 but went with the 6 and it fit great in the lower half but slightly tight in the bust. Great dress for any daytime event.

So many compliments and I felt awesome!
3 months post twin babies and I am still not back into my clothes so RTR is a lifesaver right now : ) I wore this Lilly for the Christening, it took place during Sunday Mass (we're Catholic)... I had to wear a cardigan. I am usually preppy chic so this match was made in fashion heaven. Here goes: the dress is just the right length (I' m 5'3) at about 3" above the knees, it was not a mini. It runs true to size and the waist is a bit high making it forgiving as the skirt falls over the hips. It is fresh, comfortable and super festive. I wore it with peep toe pumps and pearl earrings. It was chic in church then I got rid of the cardigan-showing off the design on the back, pinned my hair loosely, the look turned super cute for the brunch that followed!

I received so many compliments on this dress and overall it was just awesome to wear!
The fit of this dress was great. It was true to size and perfect for this occasion. The dress is flowy and sophisticated. I wore it with pink strappy heels and the earrings that came as "mystery bling". I would recommend renting this dress to anyone.

Too Short- Couldn't wear it
This dress looked adorable, until I put it on. I love Lilly and own many of her dresses but this one was awful! It was so short and barely covered my..assets. No way was I going to wear this to a bridal party brunch. I wouldn't recommend this dress to anyone, esp to someone looking for a preppy, appropriate, event dress.

Amazing!
I rented this for my nephew's baptism. It was amazing. So pretty, and I felt really elegant in it. I received a ton of compliments, and my fiance said he loved it, so I knew it was a great dress! I was a bit worried that with my larger chest I would look a little top heavy, but it actually balanced me out quite nicely. It was a bit short, but not inappropriate for a Catholic baptism... I did add a white cardigan for church though. I will definitely be renting this again. I usually order 4s and 6s, but upon reading the reviews, I opted to rent a 6 and 8... The 8 fit PERFECTLY.

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.

Graduation
I wore this dress for my college graduation and loved it. The fit was a bit off for me though. I ordered the 8 and the 10 and ended up wearing the 10. Its great for girls with that perfect hourglass shape because fit on the bottom is a non-issue, and there is plenty of room in the bust. I however, am much smaller on the top than I am on the bottom, so the 10 had a bit of extra room on top, but that one fit best in the waist (which runs slightly small since I'm normally an 8). So I think this dress is definitely a go for some great color and a playful silhouette!

I got compliments on this dress all day at both the Labor Day picnic and the birthday dinner I attended.
This dress is incredibly cute and springy and adorable! The skirt billows out slightly more than I expected though.

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.

I was going to wear this to a rooftop party until the babysitter pointed out that the hemline was completely undone; it was unfortunate.

Girly and Summery
This dress is very cute and feminine but It is very short if you are tall! Wore it for a golf tournament at a nice resort and it was the perfect style. Not too dressy, not too casual. And very comfortable!

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.

Everyone at my sorority's date party LOVED this dress.
It was a snug fit, but in the right places, such as the the waist, where I normally have problems with things being too big. I ordered a 6 and an 8, and the 8 was just too large in the top. I felt much more comfortable in the 6. The skirt was loose from the waist down so size didn't matter there.

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.

It fits like a typical Lilly dress--larger on the top, narrower in the hips, but since it's an A-line it's less noticeable. Super-comfortable...love the pockets!

Super cute and perfectly summery
Rented this dress for Belmont Stakes and got many compliments. I'm a little smaller on top than bottom, so for anyone in the same position would order for your top size since it has a full skirt. The dress was a little short considering I'm only 5'5, so if you're really tall it might not be a great fit.
