So comfy and unique!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was SO comfortable! I wore it to a rehearsal dinner at the beach and it was perfect for a warm night. but easy to jump around at the beach. The sparkles dressed it up for the dinner but I didn't feel out of place or too dressy when we went to a more casual after party spot at the boardwalk. I received so many compliments and would definitely rent again! I wore the bigger size because I thought the 6 was a little short and too tight around my bum!

I got this dress for a formal dance and it was perfect!! I was heartbroken when I had to return it

Overall fit: True to Size

I am usually a 00 or 0 in women's because I am a very skinny but sometimes my height requires me to get a 2. I tried on the 2 and found it to be a little loose so I put on the 0 and it was perfect. It was not too tight and not too loose, the neckline was also a happy medium in terms of depth, and it was not too short. I would highly recommend this dress, I think I even may rent it again if the opportunity presents itself!

The loose fit of the dress was flawless and easy and the shine gave it a more glamorous feel. The dress could easily be worn casually or dressed up for a more formal look. Typically I would wear a size 2 but I rented from the Vegas store so the size 4 was the only option and it was perfect! I wish I owned the dress!

Great color and fits to your curves for a classy but not too sexy look

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Fits to your curves in all the right places but not too tight that you can't move or is too revealing. Great color that works for night or day events. Wore this for a graduation and received many compliments on the color. I am normally not a cap sleeve person, but this was cut in a flattering way. Only problem was the sleeves/shoulders would scrunch up from time to time and I'd have to pull the sleeves down. Overall: loved the dress, definitely would rent again and recommend friends to rent it for any party

The color of this dress is a real eye-catcher! I wore it for a summer wedding and really was able to stand out! The cut of the neckline was really elegant and length was appropriate for those not wanting a dress too short. I wore a padded bra to fill it out in the top and the rest of the dress molded to my body. Loved it!

I wore this dress for an outdoor summer event. It stands out. I loved how I felt in it. When you sit it is short so be mindful of that. Would rent again.

The material was so much lighter than I expected and was perfect for an outdoor ceremony in Georgia in July. It's not too tight and a great length for a wedding.

This dress was amazing. I ordered the 6 and the 8 and ended up wearing the 8 because it was a little roomier in the bust for me (I am a 32G!) I got sooo many compliments on this dress and it was so appropriate for a wedding -- everything was covered and I could dance around without having to adjust or worry about popping out! The color was so vibrant and the cut was super flattering. Very sad I had to send it back!!

The fit of this dress was great, true to size. It was the perfect length so it didn't swallow me since someone at my height could be easily taken over by the bulk and length of a dress. It was a great pop of color for a summer wedding. I would definitely rent this dress again.

This dress was a backup but I was so glad to wear it. It was comfy, but hit curves in all the right places. The silver shimmer takes it up a notch - this isn't a typical Lilly dress. I wore this to an Indian wedding - was glad to be in something bright!

I rented the 4 and 6, the 4 fit but I wanted a little wiggle room for eating and dancing so I opted to wear the 6. I got a lot of compliments and it was flattering in the right spots. I would recommended silver vs gold jewelry as well as there is a hint of silver in the dress. I pair this was nude heels. I would rent this again!

Loved this dress! It is fitted and very flattering. The color is great and the silver stitching throughout makes it even better. It runs true to size but there is little stretch or wiggle room. It is tighter at the bust, something to consider for larger bust sizes. I would wear this again!

I rented this dress for a summer wedding. It looks much different in person than on the RTR model. It is actually a longer length than it looks on the model, making it an appropriate length for a wedding. Fitted through the bodice and very classy! The material is a light lining with a lace overlay. There is also a shimmer to it--would look great with metallic heels and jewelry. The fit is very comfortable. Definitely a great rental!

This dress fit great. I loved the gorgeous pink color...perfect for the outdoor Cape Cod wedding I attended. But I didn't wear it because I liked liked the other one I chose just a bit better. This one hugs your body...but not too tight. There is stretch to the lightweight, good quality fabric. It was a little long for what I was going for also. You can wear a regular bra. I would rent it again.

INCREDIBLE color and shimmer!!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I always wear either a 2 or 4 in Lilly Pulitzer, but the 2 was unavailable in this style. However, I'm happy that I went with the 4 because the 2 would have been too snug in the shoulders. The 4 was fitted nicely to the body, but didn't cling. I wish the dress was a little longer for tall girls like me - I wore it to a rehearsal dinner, but would not have worn it to the wedding because it seemed too short/casual on me.

Loved the color and the fit. You could dress this up or down depending on how you accessorize. I might have worn the size 6 but the top was too big so I went for the more fitted size 4. There really wasn't a lot of difference between the two sizes. I would rent this dress again. It was shipped to my hotel without any problems.

Overall fit: True to Size

i LOVED this dress and got so many compliments. it's much longer than the model picture portrays (and i'm 5'8") and was totally appropriate for a wedding. i wore a six but may have fit into a four (i only got one size, since it was my second dress). loved that i could wear a normal bra with it. the color is amazing and the detail is really gorgeous. it's hard to tell from the picture but the lace overlay is beautiful and unique. i wore it with tan/nude shoes and it looked great.

The dress looks more purple and less pink in person, but I liked the dress even more in person than I did online. The shiny part of the dress is really just silver glitter not slick material. I was pleased with the length (about 5 inches above the knee and i am 5 foot 4 inches). The dress is extremely light weight and was loose fighting on me.The fit was great and I'd have to say I was the most comfortable at the dance.

I received so many compliments on this dress; everyone loved the color! There is a little silver edging on the burn-out pattern, which is a nice detail... I typically wear a 6, but had to go with the 8 in this dress because it was a bit snug across the waist. I would definitely suggest wearing shapewear underneath for a smooth silhouette.

This was a great dress to wear to a spring wedding in Florida - perfect color and a good weight.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Overall I really liked this dress. It looked great with black heels, and wasn't too lightweight for a chilly night. Rent the Runway suggests to size down with this dress, but if you have broad shoulders and a large bust, I would recommend sizing up. My normal size (2) fit well from the waist down, but was a little too small in the chest and shoulders.
