This dress was perfect for a boat cruise on a hot summer night :)
This dress runs a little big- my size fit but I could probably have fit into a 4 more snuggly (since the back is stretchy). Very cute- many compliments :) I wore this on a booze cruise for my boyfriend and friend's birthday. I also rent the "Violet Jasmine Necklace" to go with this and it matched perfectly.

Cute....Casual....
I rented this as a backup and ended up not wearing it. I am only 5'3" and have a larger bust area, so i have to size up for that. Because of that the bottom of the skirt was huge and just was "too much". Super comfy, Had i known how stretchy it is I would have sized down quite a bit and it probably would have worked better.

Didn't Love It
I thought it would be a good dress to go from day to night. The dress is brighter than it looks in the picture. At night I felt like a lollipop. It also ran big. I recommend this dress only if your event is in the day and your out of it before the sun comes down.

I rented this dress for a wedding reception in Nashville.
This dress was very comfortable and light weight cotton, with a liner. The top was not as fitted as I'd hoped, mostly through the mid section. The sweetheart neckline was also elastic - there was no zipper. A little different than what I was expecting, but I loved the pattern and it was very easy to wear.

I loved it! I wore it for my graduation although it was little big around the top it was still great
The top was a little big even though I am a 34DD, which shocked me.

Beauitful dress for Gold Cup!
I ordered the 4 and the 6, but this dress has a lot of material through the body of the dress, so I really needed a 2. I loved the dress as a whole though, and everyone couldn't stop telling me how great I looked! I wish I could have bought it! Perfect for the event.

Fun Summer Dress
Really liked this dress but wish that I would have been able to get the smaller size. This was a "second" dress option for the weekend and could only chose one size. The top was too big for me, but I still wore it anyways, The navy blue stripes were starting to fade a bit due to wear and laundering. I don't think anyone else really noticed too much. Very comfortable with Pockets. I usually wear the 10, but probably could have gone down at least one size, especially since the back is all stretchy fabric.

My husband loved this fun & flirty dress and it was perfect for our Memorial Day adventure in New York!
Adorable and versatile! I wore this dress to a wedding brunch with a navy cardigan and then wore it to a Memorial Day rooftop BBQ later in the day with sandals. It worked great for both and I received several compliments on the fun nautical stripes. I usually wear a size 6, but the 4 fit much better and didn't slip down. I recommend ordering down a size as a back up because the top doesn't have any boning. It's definitely a more casual dress, perfect for outdoor summer events!

Comfortable and I loved the pockets!
I am normally between a 2 and a 4 so those were the two sizes I ordered. I tried the 2 first, and it fit well with a little room to spare. Once I got the dress on, it stayed put but I did double stick tape the neckline because otherwise it wouldn't have looked right (you couldn't see that it was a sweetheart neckline). I didn't realize the dress was a lightweight cotton so it was more casual than I expected and is getting a little worn. Still, it looked great in pictures and was fun to wear. Great for a summer event!

Too cold and windy to wear. Beware of the full skirt on a windy day!
I rented this dress for a wedding on the lake. It ended up being a cold and windy day. I put the dress on for about 30 minutes and realized I would spend the entire day holding it down. The skirt is really full and catches the wind. Overall the top was loose, and I had to wear a padded bra with the size zero keep it up. I had no hope of keeping the 2 up. The dresses are starting to look a bit worn, and I think the elastic across the back has been stretched out. It wasn't as flattering a fit as I had hoped.

Cute, casual and short
More casual than I expected, the cotton is very light. It was way shorter than most of my Lily dresses. The back is wayyy more causal than I expected. I did not end up wearing it as long as I wanted bc it was too short for me. Maybe for a girls only bbq, but too short for a bbq with adults for me!

Sweet summer fun!
I usually wear a size 0 but had to wear the 2 in this dress. The bodice is a bit short and did not hit at my natural waist. Looked great with a taupe colored shoe to give me height and balance the length of the bodice and skirt. I received a lot of compliments on my ensemble!

Loved the dress and felt great wearing it!
I wore this for my backyard Couple's Shower and it was perfect! There's no zipper, but the back of the bodice is stretchy so it fit like a glove. And because of the stretch I bet it would fit someone one size smaller or larger than me. I did not need to wear a bra with this dress because I felt comfortable in it and didn't need the extra support. I never had to worry about pulling up the top of the dress either...stayed right in place! The length of the skirt was comfortable and the pleating with underskirt give it just enough oomph underneath. Loved it!

I was walking on the streets past a bar and got a compliment from a complete stranger!
I wore this dress for a Wedding Rehersal dinner that was on the casual side and lost count of the compliments I received! I was walking on the streets past a bar and even got a compliment from a complete stranger! I have a larger bust so was a little nervous about a strapless dress and although the dress didn't have built in support or boning, wearing a strapless bra was fine.

First Experience
This dress was so great! I ordered a 4 and a 6. I'm between those sizes. The 4 fit perfectly fine but squished my chest a little bit. My chest is probably about a 34C or 34D. My waist and bum would have probably liked the size 4 but my chest hated it. The 6 fit absolutely perfect. I didn't even have to pull it up at all during the night. It also has pockets which was no doubt the best part of the dress! What a great first experience!

Great fit & super comfortable!
The size 2 fit great. There is elastic around the back, so there was wiggle room, but also snug enough. Wore this to an outdoor graduation party in South Carolina in May. The skirt is lined, which is nice, but also made it a little toasty! Definitely recommend this dress - I got plenty of compliments on it (and a friend of mine was sporting the same dress)!

Fun & Flirty
Loved the fun colors and easy wear of this dress. It was darling and received lots of complements. It was great to have to wear just once, because it makes a memorable statement. Thank you RTR. I have a larger rib cag/chest and a small waist. I'm an 8-10 on top and a 6-8 on the bottom. This was very complementary to those of us who are a not a specific size all over. It does not have a zip closure, but rather stretchy material on the back. It is really nice when you're inbetween sizes. However on a negative note, because of my heights (5' 11) it hit in a funny place on my hips/waist so it rode up a little bit and I had to continue pulling it down at the waist and up at the chest. It wasn't a big deal and most likely had to do with my height.

Great Dress!
It was just as I expected for a Lilly dress, very comfortable and great for outdoor events. The one thing I will mention is that for tall girls this dress, if worn with wedges can get very short.

He's home!!
Was a little shorter than anticipated but overall a great casual sundress. Definitely needed to be ironed when it arrived. There are no zippers as the back is stretchy so pulling it on can be a little challenging! It also looked a little worn/faded but nothing too noticeable.

Felt dressed down but dressed up at the same time. Ultimate comfort.
In LOVE with this dress. I felt so cute/preppy and flirty at the same time and it fit perfectly. The pockets are a nice touch and the colors are fun. Great for a summer day wedding - just throw on some pearls!

Fits great and looks cute!
I loved this dress! I will definitely rent it again. It fit great, was very comfortable, and looked good. I have no complaints about it! The top stayed up and I never once had to adjust. I didn't wear a bra under it. It has a casual look to it so I wore it for the groom's dinner the night before a summer wedding. It was perfect for that cocktail party! My boyfriend commented that it looked like a pin-up style which he liked.

My favorite thing about the dress was it went from drowned rat to it's shape within minutes!
This dress was adorable. I had ordered the size 8, and the size 10 - the size 10 wasn't going to be available last minute. The only issue I had is that I wasn't able to wear a strapless because I couldn't breath.. but the back of the top is stretchy and I could comfortably (and confidently) go without. I highly recommend this dress.. I have a hard time hiding my hips, and this dress didn't make me look like an elephant. I typically wear a 10 in Lilly and have them altered to fit, but this dress was actually perfect, who wants to wear an uncomfortable strapless bra anyway?! I couldn't find a pair of shoes that matched perfectly.. so I wore a pair of cheap, plain white flip flops and they were fine. Something else to note - these photos were after we got caught in the rain, the dress got soaked but dried extremely quickly.

Lollipop fabulous!
I loved this dress! Even with the obvious wear on it, and there was a water stain, seemed like the colors kind of ran into the white parts...that being said, I still adored it! It was fun to be super girly and was a big hit of the party.

Fun, flirty dress!
Oh this dress is super cute! The fit is a little tight through the chest (I'm busty with a small waist), and I couldn't even fit the size 4 over my shoulders. There is no zipper so if you've got some curves, order true to size or a size larger. I got so many compliments on this dress, it's fun, flirty, and has pockets! Always a plus in my book!

Not for the busty!
I thought the material would be nicer for the price of the rental, but it was cotton and kind of cheap looking. Usually Lilly Pulitzer stuff is much nicer. It was nice and stretchy and would have been okay for a picnic. Also, if you are busty, the stripes up top do nothing to help you out!

Super cute - but not for everyone
This dress is super cute and fun but is much more casual than it shows in the picture. The top is not flattering for larger busts so I would say don't attempt with a D cup - I had to send it back for that. I would love to be able to wear it though because it really is adorable.

I received compliments on this dress all night! By the end I pretty much sold everyone on RTR!
This dress fit great. I am short, but not petite and the stretch of this dress made it very easy to wear. While it may be short on taller girls, it works great on someone who is around 5' tall!

Super comfortable dress. Really forgiving for a postpartum mom!
I really liked this dress. It was super comfortable and very forgiving in the lower waist/hips so I could hid my post pregnancy belly. The back is ruched which I didn't expect making it a little on the casual side. It was a little loose. I probably could have gone down a size.

Perfect for a day at the races!
This dress fit true to size and was very comfortable. I wore it to the Keeneland horse races in Kentucky and it was a perfect day dress.
