Amazing color!
This dress is really beautiful. The color is amazing and bold, and the dress itself is very comfortable. It does run a little bit on the large side, so I would recommend sizing down. Pair with a statement necklace to bring the whole look together.

Is this a thick fabric? I was thinking of doing this dress for my 30th bday? What do you think?

Versatile dress!
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.

Beautiful dress for summer lake wedding!
The fit was great- I am a pear shape so have trouble with fitted dresses sometimes. This dress had plenty of room in the hips and fit up top. Great color!

Great color!
The color is fabulous and the fit is comfortable. The only thing to note is that it does not cinch in the waist, and so, it looked boxier on me than I would have liked.

Shiny Shift!
I was unable to wear this dress due to shipping issues making it arrive after my event...which RTR Customer Service was able to resolve afterwards with a free dress rental! This shift fit great & the bright color was fun! I am not busty and found it to be a little tight in that area but overall fit true to size. Would have loved to wear this for my event!

Wore this to a fancy dinner in LA on vacation
I really loved this dress when I saw it on the Lilly Pulitzer website but did not want to pay $300 for something I knew I would wear once... I did a search and saw that RTR carried it and immediately ordered! The dress ran a bit large but I knew I was going to a big dinner so I wore the 2 instead of the 0. ( I am normally a 2)... The dress was a tiny bit long for my liking. I am 5'5'' and when I folded the dress up, I liked it a little better. Still loved this color, loved this dress and got a ton of compliments on it so it was a win in my book!

The fit was perfect and the color was eye catching. I got so many compliments :)
The fit wasn't exactly body con, but close. You have to be careful how much you eat because if the dress is perfect to your size before bloating after food, then it may feel a little tight. But overall, it's amazing!

The color was fabulous!
I wore this to a horse race this past weekend. I loved the color! It really stood out among other dresses. I wore the 8 since it was going to be a hot day. The 6 fit about the same just a little tighter at the lower half. I wanted to be able to move around a little more freely so went with the 8. This dress is great for anything! I definitely recommend it.

Perfect dress for my baby shower!
I sized up 3 sizes at 30 weeks to wear this gorgeous dress to my baby shower luncheon. It was perfect. GREAT color, length and super-comfortable. I felt so special wearing a beautiful dress, being feted by my closest friends.

This was my first rtr and it was a wonderful experience! To top it off this was my free bday dress!
The fit was perfect. I really could of wore either the 6 or 8 but the 8 was a little looser in the sleeve area and looked a little bulky. The dress does not stretch but was not super skin tight either. The color definitely looked a little more purple then I thought but still was a gorgeous color. Material was flawless- good quality! Would recommend this even for a wedding event but I used it for my bday dinner and night out. Love rtr!

Loved this dress! Beautiful color and fit perfectly. Received lots of compliments.
Between the color, fit, and material, this dress was amazing. I'm 5'8" and it was a little longer than the dress the picture shows. I wore it to a graduation party with nice sandals, then to a wedding with cowboy boots and both times people asked me where I got my dress. This is my second RTR dress and I can't wait to order again!

flapper friendly!
I rented this dress last minute for a charity event for work. The theme was roaring 20s. Even though this dress doesn't scream flapper, it definitely worked for the occasion with the right accessories. It fit amazing, I have a very large chest so I always have to size up. Because I had to size up it was a hair long so it road up a little but it still looked so good. I got so many compliments, I wish I could buy this dress!

So comfy and unique!
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!

Beautiful spring/summer dress!
Fit true to size. Top is a bit big, if you have a smaller chest you may find that this dress will gap a lot in the chest and upper back. Great length and comfortable fit.

Beautiful color and easy to wear!
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
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

Great color. It fits more snugly than I had expected. Fabric is more stiff than free flowing.
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.

One of the guests said, "best dressed, best color, best fit." I said RTR!
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 BEAUTIFUL! It couldn't have fit better. I rented a 2 & 4 and opted for the 4 for some wiggle room for a bachelorette party. Highly recommend.

Perfect for a country club 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 color and that the material was very light-much more than I expected.
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.

Bright, fun, comfy!
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!

Cute but didn't fit
Overall the dress fit true to size but the top was too big on me. Didn't fit on small boobs, there was just too much extra fabric I couldn't fill out.

I wore this dress to a 30th Birthday and the color was absolutely amazing! I received so many compliments and loved the overall fit! I paired it with off-white pumps, an off-white clutch, & chandelier earrings. Would definitely recommend this dress for a fun night out! :-)

Bright summer wedding dress
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!

Loved!
Color was beautiful! I was going to wear the 6 but it was a little too big on top. 4 was perfect on top but a little snug on the bottom. I was afraid to get low while dancing because of the fear of ripping the dress! Other than that I loved it and got lots of compliments! :)

I loved wearing this dress--It was comfortable, classy, and great for a formal occasion.
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!
