I wore this dress for my sorority's spring formal and got tons of compliments. It's a really great option if you're looking for something on the classy side. Usually Lilly dresses in a 0 fit me very snuggly, but this one was a bit loose.

This dress was great! If you frequently wear Lilly, then the fit of this dress will come as no surprise to you. It is a great dress for my pear shape and toned arms- hid the places that I wanted, and made my arms/legs look phenomenal! It was a great dress length for a wedding in which you won't know many people- classy and pretty without being too "look at me!"...I would rent again. Size wise- Really worry about your measurement from your rib cage up- I can be anywhere from a 2 to an 8, depending on where it hugs my body. I ended up going with a size 4. You won't regret renting it!

Lilly overall runs large, but this one is fitted at the waist. It fit perfectly for me, possibly a tiny bit larger in the bust.

Flirty dress that was comfortable enough to dance it at a wedding.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Fit might run a little large, at least in this style- I am an hourglass, so even with my larger bust the 4 was right for my waist and ribcage. The built-in support was allI I needed, and it didn't slouch too much (with my bust, it's usually inevitable). Was able to dance the night away in style and comfort, and the gold details really helped dress it up.

This dress was absolutely adorable and I felt classy in it. It fit true to size and was made of a thicker material, which made it a little warm but also allowed it to hold its shape and not wrinkle all night.

The size 4 is in ok condition, but the size 6 is really worn. The bone-ing has popped out of the dress. I wouldn't rent the size 6 if they only have one and don't fix this. Loved the dress, very flattering on a straight and narrow body type.

Such a great dress, I wore it to my Brother’s wedding which was at his horse farm, so that’s why I am in boots. But I loved the look! The dress fit great, I wasn’t pulling at it all night like I usually do with a strapless dress. The pockets where so cute and the detailing too. Everyone else loved it also. I am thinking about purchasing the dress, I really like it that much!

Didn't fit, STILL too gorgeous not to give 5 stars

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
From the moment I rented this dress, I knew it was a risk. Strapless and I just don't mix. However, the dress had built in boning.. so I was willing to take that risk. Technically, the dress did fit and in fact the boning not only held up my boobs, but held them in and held them in well! It survived a rigorous jumping and dancing test. Overall, I decided that the amount my boobs were exposed would not be "nana approved" . Which saddened me, since this dress is SO SO SO pretty. I mean even better in person. The quilted fabric and vibrant gold. Perfection. Plus I had my nails and toes done to match!

The dress has pockets!! I loved this dress. It fit super well and was different from everyone else's. The bottom doesn't twirl very much but that's what made it a good dancing dress. It was more blue than in the picture and kinda has a texture but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing. I would definitely get it again. If you're trying to find a dress and you're reading this review then get the dress. You won't regret it. Oh! And you don't have to worry about it falling down.

Loved, loved, loved! Fit like a glove! Liked the heavier material/texture of the dress. The gold detailing on the front and along hem were perfect to dress it up a little. RTR overnighted this to me after my original dress didn't fit. I told the stylist I wanted something with a flared skirt and she did great!

So I rented this dress as a backup for a wedding! It was gorgeous, just not the right look for my event. The material is a lot heavier than it looks so it's perfect for a spring/fall wedding! It does run a little large though, a zero would have fit me more snug in my bust and waist than the 2. The gold detailing is much more noticeable in person and would pair perfect with simple gold jewelry!

Comfortable and cute!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I LOVED the dress! It was a little tight on my bust and I was constantly adjusting or making sure I didn't have too much "spillage." I felt much more comfortable in it when I had my cardigan on. The dress I rented (size 10) had some obvious signs of wear such as the color being faded and the material wearing along the neckline, but I don't want to complain too much because it was a great dress for a great price. The gold embroidery and pockets are so adorable, and the fabric is so comfortable. I wore it to a "country" wedding on a ranch with ankle boots, and it was the perfect balance between being casual but still nice and special.

Love the dress, it was super cute and the size 4 fit but was overall too short. I was sad because it was such an adorable dress. It either needed to be more conservative at the top or the bottom in order for me to wear it.

Fits true to size, hugs the waist. The best part: POCKETS! The one thing I wish I knew before renting was that it was a bit heavy, since there was a lot of fabric at the skirt of the dress. Otherwise, a great fit, and perfect for the occasion.

I ended up getting two Lilly dresses for graduation weekend, both in the same style. RTR only had this one available to ship in a 4, and the other one in a 2. I preferred the fit of the 2 because I have a very small waist and bust. People who are small on top should size down, because the bottom is free!

Cute, flattering dress for great price

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my first rent-the-runway rental and overall I think it was a great deal for $30. The stitching is much brighter and more beautiful in person. Unfortunately the material around the top edge of the bust was pretty faded and worn. Thankfully this really wasn't an issue at my dimly lit dinner/formal. The pockets are cute and functional. The material is thick enough so that you can actually store phone in your pocket without causing the skirt to droop. My measurements are 34-26-36, so I usually wear a 4 or 6, but the 2 fit very well in the waist. The bust was a little too small; I ended up forgoing a bra and that helped a bit. The overall fit was very flattering on me and would probably look great on most body types.
