I want to own this dress!!
I've never felt sexier! This dress was simply lovely, and the nautical detail was beautiful - perfect for our vacation in New Orleans. The fabric didn't have much give, and I found myself between the 6 and the 8 - went with the 8 because we were going to dinner and I knew I was going to stuff myself full of good Cajun food. The 6 fit like a glove that was made for specifically me in my waist, hips and length, but was snug around my rib cage after it zipped. I wouldn't have been able to wear a bra with it. The 8 was slightly longer and afforded me a little more room through the waist and hips but wasn't too baggy. Gave me that extra little bit of space in the rib cage that I needed. I wore a sticky bra under this style, and as it got cooler, I added a light, kind of sheer, white sweater that was the same length as the dress. I wish I had a full body picture of the dress on; it's extremely well made, and well maintained by RTR. Another fabulous rental!

Fit perfect to my galas nautical theme!
The 0 dress ran a bit small but with a pinch at the top of the zipper it went right up which was great because the 2 was too big. It was a perfect classic length for a work tire event. The material was thick and rope detail was awesome. SO MANY COMPLIMENTS!!

Perfect Nautical Look for a Cape Cod Bridal Shower
Loved the dress and fit true to size! However, the material was pretty thick so it was a little warm for a summer shower.

Fits like a glove
I rented the dress for a cruise and loved it! It fit my figure perfectly. It's a little on the short side so I wouldn't recommend for a wedding or more conservative event.

Great dress! The rope neck was a little tricky, came apart a couple times during evening when I was wearing it, but maybe just a bad one.

Perfect summer wedding dress!
This dress has no stretch or give so if you are larger on the bottom I suggest sizing up. I wore a 10 and am usually an 8 or 6 depending on the cut. As a result the dress held everything in nicely though! Received tons of complements!

Perfect dress!
Great classic dress. I wore this to a high school reunion in FL. Heavy textured fabric and high quality. It runs true to size but A bit tight. If you are between sizes, go up. I wear a 34C/D and it was a little snug in the bust.

Perfect for the Navy wedding I attended!
This dress was perfect for the Navy wedding that I went to… Although it did seem to ride up a bit around the thigh area. The material was also a little worn, but it was truly an amazing dress and made me feel like a million bucks. Unfortunately, the other dress I rented was ruined by the previous renter. The stylists at RTR were so accommodating though and I will definitely be renting from them again!!

Perfect for the party by the sea! Nautical rope halter really a standout. Quite short even on my 5'2" frame and as usual for this line runs small.

amazing!!
I love love love this dress! I didn't want to return it. I wore this dress to a horse race and it was perfect. I am usually between an 8 and a 6, and I ended up going with the 6. only problem was that the zipper was broken when it arrived, but I loved the dress too much and I fixed it with a safety pin. dress doesn't have much stretch so it was a little tight on the hips but nothing too bad. highly recommend this dress!!

Beautiful dress for dinner.
I did not realize that the designs across the dress are not print - it is embroidery on the surface of the dress! And the background of the dress is not black, it's navy. And it is a bit longer than it looks on the model. I rented it for a late night party at a lounge, but it is not sexy enough for that. So I wore it to dinner with friends. First RTR rental I was not thrilled about. Definitely a dinner dress, could also work in the daytime. My measurements are 34DD - 27 - 39 and a size 4 fit perfectly.

I rented this for a night time event marking the opening of our local Yacht Club.
The dress looks exactly as pictured, but even better. It was in excellent condition, fit well and was flattering. It has a nautical feel to it so it was perfect for my event, but because it can be dressed up or down, it is versatile and suitable for a variety of events. I suspect it flatters almost all figures. You should know that there is absolutely no give to the fabric which is a heavier cotton. I ordered a size 2 and a 4 even though I typically wear size 0 or 2 in dresses, I was glad I had the 4 because I couldn't even zip up the 2. If you have a larger rib cage or back, definitely size up. Since I am shorter, the length was longer than shown on the model,but it was still plenty above my knees to be flattering. My one disappointment was that I had to send it back. I absolutely loved this dress and wish I could own it. My friend wishes she could too.

perfect nautical summer dress
loved the dress, just kind of snug and short on me...order a size up ladies. The rope at the top clasps like a necklace so is adjustable. Thick material and tight enough that I didn't need to wear a bra!

Nice thick material
I'm 5'10 and thought it was a bit short. It was also really snug and while I'm usually a size 8 or 10, a size 12 in the dress would have been better. I ended up calling in a new dress and RTR overnighted a new dress. I've never had such amazing customer from one company.

My date was awful, so I went out with friends instead! lol
I'm pretty small, normally a size 0. Not only did I need the 2, I felt it made me look heavier.

Easy Renting Process and Unique Dress
This dress was different and very easy to wear. It did run small and is very tight in the mid section. I didn't wear a bra and everything stayed in place. Easy to dance and comfortable. This dress has a very nautical theme.

Very pretty, but runs small.
I still gave this dress a 4-star rating even though I didn't wear it because it was a beautiful dress. The quality of the dress is nice, though a little thicker and the design was very pretty. The gold chain around the neck added extra style. Unfortunately, and I'm not sure if this is usually the case with Lilly Pulitzer dresses, but it ran small and short. I usually wear a size 8 in dresses and the 8 and 10 were both small. The 8 I couldn't even get on. The size 10 dress I could get on and zip, but it was entirely too short and tight to feel comfortable in for an entire evening. In my personal opinion, I wouldn't suggest this dress for "curvy" women. Or, at least, make sure to have either a back up size or another dress!

Perfect dress for a nautical themed party
Like other reviewers have said, the dress runs small in the hip area. I had to wear my backup size because I've got a good-sized bum and thighs. But by doing that it made the dress baggy around my waist and slightly large in the chest area, which is odd since I'm not small-chested. Overall, the dress was very pretty and was perfect for the occasion. Please note that one of the dresses did not come with the white neck clasp/tie. The dress would be completely unwearable without it. Glad I had the backup dress!

I've never gotten so many compliments on a dress. It was perfect for a Naval Officer commissioning.
The dress did not stretch as much as I thought and was a little snug. I ordered a 2 and 4, and went with the the snug 2 instead of the 4, which was too loose around the bust. I absolutely loved the style, the colors, and the rope detail at the neck. I have long legs and thought it was a little on the short side, but it still looked classy for a Navy commissioning ceremony. The nautical style was perfect for the event and I received many compliments all day.

Runs small, but a great dress
It runs very small. I own multiple Lilly dresses and rented this as a backup. My normal Lilly size is a 0/2 and this 2 barely zipped. I did not end up wearing it, but it was very pretty in person, is perfect dress if you don't know whether to be dressy or casual. Might rent again just in a larger size once I had a reason too.

Fun and nautical!
Wore this for a friend's rehearsal dinner that was on the water in Boston. It was perfect for the occasion. I wore the 10 b/c it didn't have much give around the hips and the 8 was much too tight.

Perfectly Nautical Dress for a Coastie Wedding =]
I loved the dress. You really can never go wrong with the Lilly dresses but I did find this one ran a little small in the chest area like the other reviews say. The four fit, but I wanted to be comfortable and while the six was a little big every where else, mainly in the waist, I didn't want to feel like I was going to bust out of it all night. Additionally, the neck piece kind of hurt a bit and I think that's what makes the dress feel so tight in the bust. But hey, beauty is pain right? Overall, I loved the dress, but would recommend getting a back up size, and getting the back up in a size larger than you'd normally get.

Cute dress, but runs very small.
I own several Lilly dresses and am always a size 0, but even the backup size 2 I ordered was a little tight around the hips/butt, and was much shorter than expected. I'd recommend going up two sizes if you're tall. Unfortunately, this dress was sent to me without the rope tie, so I couldn't wear it, but the quality is great.

Nautical & Fun
I wore this to a rehearsal dinner at a yacht club and received lots of compliments. It's just a cute dress and it's form-fitting but pretty flattering. It ran a tad bit small, but that's usually my experience with Lilly Pulitzer. I can see myself renting it again for summer parties & events. As usual with RTR, everything arrived on time and it was a very smooth process. Love, love, love them!

High quality however it was too small and I couldn't zip it.
Was missing a part for the neck tie so even if it fit I couldnt have worn it. Simple mistake but I will order it again in the future in a size 10.

Great dress for a great day!
I rented this dress for a Graduation Party in Virginia. It was extremely fitted in the hips. I loved the design and got tons of compliments. You can easily wear a strapless bra. If you have wide hips or a full booty, I recommend sizing up. Looks great in photos! Always super happy with RTR and the customer service is exceptional!!

So many compliments!
Absolutely loved this dress! I was disappointed because I usually wear a size 2 in Lilly and they werent able to ship that to me, but this size 4 fit perfectly- so I would size up from a normal Lilly Shift. It has some boning and keeps a great shape, the material is slightly heavy/double layer so it holds up well

Runs very small.
I did not get to wear the dress. It was too small. I wear a size 2 99% of the time but could not zip it up. Its also very short. I would not recommend it for ladies 5'9" or taller unless you want to show off you butt cheeks.
