The perfect summer dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I ordered this dress for a day long outdoor college event and it was definitely comfortable enough to wear and move around in all day. It does seem to run a little bit larger, as I normally wear a size 4 but wore the size 2. This may only be because I needed it to be tighter on top though. Overall my experience with RTR was great! I loved the dress, got tons of compliments, and everything was very easy.

The fit is a little larger up top but everywhere else it fits true to size. It is comfortable and easy to wear! I loved the colors which are brighter in person, and I got so many compliments on it! Great dress for a spring or summer event!

Picnic perfect!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Loved this dress. It was great for a cheery bright summer bday picnic (and easy to spot when people were trying to find us). The bones in the top were a little uncomfortable while sitting, and by 6:00, i did change into shorts. Also, the bone on one side kept poking out the bottom of the seam and sticking me. But overall, I loved that it flattered my figure. (very pear-shaped w/ 32DDD bust) Definitely got compliments!

Fits like most Lilly dresses, very cute. It had a few moments of "pulling up" because it's strapless....but for the most part it was great! Very bright colors that do alot for the dress & making you look a little tanner than you are!

Easter Fabulous

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I am 116lbs and a 32D+, based on others reviews I ordered the dress in a 2 & a 4. In hindsight, I wish I would have ordered a 0 and a 2 because the dress run large. Pros: the dress was very comfortable, perfect for springtime, and I received a ton of compliments. Cons: the dress runs small, the boning/wiring inside the dress did not bother me, but I can see how it may bother others. Also, if you are fairly petite this dress would most likely be too big for you.

This dress was absolutely perfect for an Easter brunch with my family. I got so many compliments on it. Our waitress thought it was the cutest one in the restaurant. My only complaint (a minor one) is that it was a little large. I'm almost always a size 0, but I could have worn a 00 in this dress. It wasn't a big deal though, I used used double sided tape to keep it from slipping down. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Perfect for a spring wedding!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The flowers on the dress are so fun and colorful. I got compliments throughout the night on the dress. I would say it runs a little on the big side. I sized down like others suggested and was glad I did so. I also partly picked the size 2 because the colors on the size 4 I received were very faded. I couldn't believe the stark difference between the colors in the two dresses. I was so glad the 2 ended up fitting because the colors looked so much better. Overall I enjoyed wearing the dress.

Outdoor Summer Wedding

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Beautiful dress for a spring/summer wedding-- lots of complements! The dress definitely runs large so plan to size down. I also found the length to be good, but it may be a little short for girls ~5'7 or above. I get the feeling a lot of people order the 0 and 2 and end up going with the 0, as it was significantly lighter/faded compared to the 2. That being said, the colors were still beautiful and I'd recommend this dress.

Fit like a glove. I am usually a 2 but went with a 0. My top is smaller than my hips and the bottom half of the dress is not fitted so the smaller size worked perfectly.

Cute Easter Dress

Size worn: OO
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for an Easter party that I hosted and it was perfect. I felt like it was a grown up version of the Easter dresses I wore as a child but obvi more stylish. I wore the 00 and it was still a little big on me which is amazing as it's the smallest size it comes in- I'd definitely recommend ordering a size or two up. This would be a great dress to wear to any spring or summer affair!

Best Customer Service!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
RTR has the best customer service. My backup size wasn't available and I only received one size in my order. I was going to dinner and wasn't sure which size would fit better a 2 or 4. I called RTR for assistance and the stylist was very helpful in finding me a different back up size dress. She had it shipped overnight. It would appear that I am in between a size 2 and 4. I wore this dress in a size 4, but it fit a little large. This wasn't one of my favorite rentals, but it is very pretty and perfect for Spring/Summer. I'm very appreciative of RTR being so helpful and understanding.

Size worn: OO
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I wore this dress for my graduation ceremony, and it was perfect! I'm usually a size 0-2 in Lilly Pulitzer, so I ordered a size 2. Unfortunately, it did not fit, but RTR was so hopeful and overnighted me a size 0 and 00. The 00 fit perfectly (much to my surprise) and didn't fall down or anything. I will definitely be renting this dress again in the future!

Great sundress--colors really pop!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I wore this to go wine tasting with some of my girlfriends. The day turned out to be freezing, so that was too bad, but not the dress' fault! I carry most of my weight in the hips so the usual size 6 might be kind of misleading for a dress like this, but I'm a 32D and the size 2 was by far better than the 4, so smaller busted girls might want to keep that in mind. Overall, a really fun and tasteful dress for a summer party, wedding, or outing!

I've been renting from RTR all through college but this really was my favorite rental yet! I didn't end up wearing a bra with it to tone down the cleavage and it still fit snugly all night- there's boning in the bust which is a necessity for a strapless dress for me. The colors are bright (you can tell better from the outdoor pictures) and the length was perfect! Definitely a dress I'll be renting again!

This is the PERFECT Kentucky Derby Dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Rented this for a Kentucky Derby party I hosted and couldn't be happier with it! The bust ran large but a strapless took up the extra space. Dress is very flattering - fitted on top and flared on the bottom. It's not nearly as short as it appears on the model. I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat - either for a themed party or just a hit summer night. It's a perfect dress.
