This dress was sent overnight because my first choice didn't fit. Fortunately, this dress arrived just in time for my event! It was perfect for a bridal shower, and I got many compliments. Majority of the women there had never heard of RTR, and by the end of the party I felt like a spokesperson for the company, haha. I ordered a size 4 and 6. I tried on the 4 first and it fit pretty perfectly. I didn't even need to wear spanx with it. It was definitely form fitting, but not to where I was uncomfortable. The only thing that was a little bothersome was the boning in the sides. When I sat in the car, it dug into my back a little. There was also a pink stain on one side of the rope that went around my neck, but if I straightened it out a certain way it didn't show. After the party, I tried on the 6 out of curiosity and it fit much more comfortably; however, the part around my chest and under my armpits was very wide and sticking out. So, I stuck with the 4 again and wore it to dinner. Overall, it's a great dress and I enjoyed my experience.

Great fit. Perfect for breezy seaside nights!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The fit was true to size and very comfortable. I paired it with a dark blue cardigan and it helped tie the look together, especially since it was a windy night. The fabric was a thick fabric which also worked well in such a breezy night. But, had it been a humid environment I might have been more uncomfortable. I wore it for my law school's fall boat cruise and I thought it would also compliment a sort of nautical look without looking tacky. Would def rent again.

I just really didn't like the way this fit me. The material was very thick, and I felt like it really bunched around my waist and made me look fat and frumpy. I ended up keeping my jacket on the entire night because I felt like the dress did nothing for my body.

Overall fit: True to Size

I'm usually not a huge Lilly Pulitzer fan, but I thought this would be cute for my graduation. However, it didn't look super flattering in me, which may be either because it was a little too big or because I didn't have the curves to really rock it. It looked a little boxy on my athletic figure, but I did get several compliments on it. The material was really thick, and there was no visible wear and tear. The embellishments were fun and sophisticated! Good luck!

This dress was my favorite. I wore it for my boyfriend's army commissioning. I had to wear a light sweater with it. It fit my large chest well but if seemed a little snug across the ribs. The length was perfect and I'm on the shorter side, hit right above my knees. Great pick.

This is one of 3 dresses I ordered for my birthday weekend in Florida. R2R was sold out of my usual size, the 4, so I went ahead and ordered up hoping the dress would fit. I was actually really worried it would be too big, but it fit perfectly and I don't think I could have sized down if I wanted to. I wore this with gold wedges and felt like a million bucks for my 30th birthday. Definitely another successful rental!

Fit true to size. I have a smaller chest so it was slightly large around my rib cage but not substantially. Fabric was sturdy but very comfortable, and the dress flattered in all the right places!

It fit really well and you could tell the dress was high quality. The rope halter neck line is adorable. It's still wide enough in the front to cover that armpit "chub" area that every girl hates. Seemed pretty true to size. Perfect length as well-came a little below mid-thigh for me. Wore it with a white cardigan and gold Sperry's. Perfect for the entire day!

This dress has a lot of texture that you can't necessarily see in the pictures - it's a little thick and heavy. But overall it was super cute, although I had to go up a size to get it to fit.

I loved the this dress and wish I could buy it from Rent the Runway as I would wear it again multiple times! It was perfect for the occasion, a CO rehearsal dinner/drinks. The fit is true to size and very flattering, it is form fitting. I loved the neckline and how the halter is a rope style piece, adjustable to your neck. The pattern on the dress is very beautiful as well! I've rented a lot of dresses and this by far is my favorite! Happy renting!

Great material! Can be dressed up or down easily. Fits true to size, was happy with the length-fit just a little above the knee which helped keep it casual. very flattering form fit, not too tight so it doesn't ride up but not too loose that it doesn't hug in all the right places. absolutely loved and would totally recommend!

Dress was fantastic! LOVE LOVE LOVE! The clasp on the dress was broken when I got it- but I could still wear it. You must wear a strapless bra with this and the length is great. There is no give- so don't expect a stretchy material. I got a ton of compliments and would love to own it if I could. GREAT DRESS, one of my favorite rentals so far!

Gorgeous dress but issues with clasp to where it would have been a horrible wardrobe malfunction.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was gorgeous and so fitting for a lake side wedding/reception. It fit perfectly (I am a perfect size 2 in Lilly dresses), it was snug (didn't need to wear a bra, thank goodness since I HATE strapless bras) to my body but not so tight I couldn't breath or move. The fabric was heavy but not to wear I was uncomfortable and sweating (and this is August in Florida). My BIGGEST complaint is that the clasp is soooo cheaply made. As soon as I got the dress and took it out of the box (still on the hanger) I noticed that the clasp to go around the neck was broken. Luckily I was able to fix it and try on the dress. Though after I tried on the dress and I was putting it back on the hanger the clasp portion broke again (different area) and again I was able to fix it, after this point I wasn't sure I was going to be able to wear this dress since I wasn't able to get a back-up size (the back-up size was damaged and I was notified the day before my dress was to arrive, I did get a different dress but the new one I had to pick out just didn't look good on me or fit right). To my surprise I was able to wear the dress and it made it through most of the night but finally the clasp just died at the end of the night. I am still so happy I got to wear the dress but I am so highly disappointed in the quality of this dress. I expected so much more out of a Lilly Pulitzer dress and this could have been a terrible wardrobe malfunction since I was not wearing a bra. But I def would recommend this dress for any events near water (beaches, lakes, ships, etc)

Perfect dress for a nautical themed party

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: 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!

Great Dress with Details

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and it a great dress for the occasion. I think this dress probably runs true to size or even a little big. I ordered last minute so got a 0 and a 6 since they were the only sizes left. The 0 would have fit perfectly but I had some side boob happening, so wish I could have went with the 2, which probably would have been a perfect fit in the top then. I ended up going with the 6 which was a bit big in the boobs and even bigger in the rest of the dress, but still looked fine even though it wasn't tight fitted like intended. I loved the back with the rope and chain detail. This dress is sorta heavy but really well made.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my 20th birthday, and even though my friends and I just went to paint pottery it still made me feel special. I didn't look as good in this as the model, for some reason it kind of gave me a pooch in the stomach. Since the fabric isn't stretchy at all it just kind of gathered there. But as long as I was standing and I had it pulled down the whole way It looked great.

I've never gotten so many compliments on a dress. It was perfect for a Naval Officer commissioning.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.
