Great color, very comfortable
This dress was perfect for a spring wedding! The color was amazing and I got lots of compliments, definitely pairs well with silver jewelry and shoes. I could have worn the 2 but since it was a family wedding I went with the 4 which was not as short or tight and just overall more comfortable for dancing. Love that I could wear a normal bra with it.

Beautiful Color
I really loved this dress, super light weight and easy to move in. I typically am a size 6 but it was tighter than I wanted it to be. Material is pretty thin so I opted for the 8 for mor comfort without feeling I need to be sucking in the entire night. Many compliments on the color. Danced the entire night and was able to get low since the length was not too short. Great rental!

Super cute, fitted dress. The color is outstanding and the cut is very flattering.
I wore the 8 though it was a bit snug in places, it fit better than the 10. I loved this dress. The fit was great, very flattering and received loads of compliments from strangers. I would purchase this dress to dress up or down!

I absolutely love this dress! Got many compliments!
I usually wear a size 2, I felt as if the dress was a little on the baggier side in my mid section. Other than that it was absolutely perfect! :)

Gorgeous - runs small
Absolutely beautiful fabric and color - the photo does not do it justice. I'm an hourglass size 12, and this was too small across the bust and hips, so unfortunately I couldn't wear it. Go up a size and you won't be disappointed.

Way too short
I'm just shy of 5'10, so it's hard to find dresses that are an appropriate length. This was a mini on me (was hoping for mid thigh at least), and therefore would have been inappropriate for a bridal shower brunch. The color was fantastic and I loved the cap sleeves. I did think the fit was overall snug as well as short, so in general it was just too much for the event.

Beautiful dress, many compliments!! Would highly recommend!
Absolutely loved this dress! I received compliments all night and felt great in it. Seems to definitely run on the small side so went with the bigger size. There is not much "give" to the fabric. I loved the silver shimmer to it and wore metallic shoes to match. Would rent again!

Oddly sized
I normally wear a size 6 or 8 dress. Neither the 8 or the 10 fit in my hips. I have a size 34F chest and the size 10 was too big in the chest, but too tight in my stomach and hips. I LOVED the look and quality of the dress It was better than the pictures showed. I wish that the material had a little stretch so I could have worn it. If you are large chested with a tiny waist/hips, this dress will be perfect for you. If it had fit, I would have been happy to wear it. It is a beautiful dress.

It fit like a gem!
I wore this dress for my senior hoco and i honestly wished I owned it. It was a little longer than my taste so I rolled it up underneath and used fashion tape to make it temporarily shorter. most dresses squeeze my bust but this one fit perfectly

Favorite rental so far!
I've been a long time RTR user, and this may be one of my top favorite rentals so far. So cute, excellent color, and comfortable fit! Runs true to size. I was a bit over my normal weight at the time, and this dress made me feel comfortable and confident!

Great for spring
Great lily dress. More fitted than usual thru the midsection for lily - so size up instead of down. I wore a regular bra and the length was perfect for my short self. Loved it.

Beautiful dress!
I rented this dress for my husbands 40th birthday party. It was perfect! I received so many compliments. I am 5'8' tall, 175 lbs. and bra size 36 D. I rented size 14 and ordered size 12 for back up (wishful thinking probably). I ended up wearing the 14 and it fit great. It wasn't snug anywhere and I felt like I could dance and move around without being restricted at all. I will definitely rent from RTR again!

I wasn't as excited for this RTR EXPERIENCE like I was 4 my last 1. I'll pick a better 1 nxt time.
Honesty I picked this dress based on the reviews I saw all ages wearing this dress so I thought it would be perfect for my girlfriend bday dinner at buddakan. But the truth is I felt like it was an old lady dress. I didn't receive any complaints. I'm 5' 9" and weight about 150. I wore the 8 and the shoulders were tight. I'm very big in hip and butt area but that part fit good. The silver details are very visible in this dress. I brought gold because the photos didn't seem like the silver was strong in the dress. But overall love RTR BUT wont rent this again.

New Years Eve Winning Dress
GET THIS DRESS!!!!! I rented this dress for New Year's Eve. I was nervous that it would be too summery, but it was GREAT! It was so comfy and had a subtle sparkle. I wore with fine glitter sling backs and it was phenomenal. I am pretty consistently a 2 and wore the 2. The 4 probably would've been fine also, but I didn't try it on. I'm a Lilly lover and FOR SURE suggest this dress! I am keeping a watchful eye on eBay to purchase one I liked it so much. I got so many compliments and seriously felt fantastic wearing it.

Great dress...fits true to size, the 6 was my backup and it was too long and too big.
The lining of the dress has a metallic/silver color that you can't really see in pics...something to keep in mind while picking out shoes/jewelry

Obsessed with this dress!
From the moment I put this on, I knew I wouldn't want to return it. This was a rental for a New Year's Eve boat party and it could not have been more perfect! The dress fit like a glove and I got so many compliments! I felt absolutely beautiful wearing it. The color is awesome and it photographs incredibly well. For a more conservative affair I might have up-sized, but stick with your regular size if you don't mind all your best assets on display :) Will definitely rent again!

Perfect pink for bachelorette but a little tight
I needed a pink dress for a bachelorette party and this for the bill but was a little fitted for my taste. The texture/shininess is better in person than I thought it would be. I liked this dress ok but it was not my favorite rental.

Love this dress! The color is fantastic and has a shine to it. The top is a little snug if you have a larger chest, but I was still able to wear a regular bra underneath.

I felt cute and fun without it being too revealing, for a corporate holiday party.
The dress is flattering without being too revealing - it is short but the slight sleeves and overall fit make it not too revealing. It does run a bit small, I usually wear a 2 and this was a snug 2, but not uncomfortably so. I loved the small cap sleeves to make it not overly showy but still really flattering. I got a spray tan before wearing it so I wouldn't need hose/tights and it made the pink pop more. A nice sparkle without being too flash dance. I LOVE this dress. It actually was an alternate picked by my RTR stylist when my chosen dress became unavailable, and I liked it way more than my original choice! I would definitely rent this again.

Great color! Awesome fabric!
The dress runs a little large, I read comments before and I am normally 4 /6 so I went for the 6 but it was not that fit, I wish I would have rented the 4, it was a little long too 1 inch less and the dress would of been perfect! However, I got a lot of compliments, the color was AMAZING! and shipping was faster than normal!

I loved the fit, color, and slight shimmer in this dress!
This dress fits true to size, and is so comfortable! I ordered a 2 and a 4, and ended up wearing the 4 because it fit better in the chest and shoulders. The color is FANTASTIC, and would look great on every skin tone! I got so many compliments, definitely wish I could have kept it!

Stunning color! Comfortable fit!
Amazing dress!! Flattering in all the right places, does not accentuate flaws, very elegant fit. Bra strap clasps in the sleeves to prevent any slips. Slightly tight in the bust/rib-cage area so wore the size 6 instead of the 4. Able to enjoy dinner and dessert at the wedding and dance the night away comfortably in the dress! Color is an incredible bright pink! Would absolutely rent this dress again! Perfect first rental with RTR!

The dress was a perfect pop of fuchsia for our church's Kentucky Derby themed auction.
I liked this dress...it fit fine. But it didn't hold everything in the way the other dresses I've rented have. It just wasn't very "giving". I received compliments on it, though, and it was a beautiful color.

It fit really well! The color was beautiful and I got a lot of compliments on it.
My only con is that it kind of photographs strangely. Also I'm not a huge fan of cap sleeves. Overall though, I would rent again and it really is a unique and pretty dress!

Flattering fit. Color is VERY bright.
I'm very top-heavy in the bust. I wore the 10 which fit quite well in the chest and left me a little room in the tummy, which I prefer. It was a flattering dress but the color is BOLD. The dress also has a bit of a silver sheen sewn throughout the fabric. It was cute, flirty, and stood out but, at 33 years old, I felt a little silly. Because it was a wedding, the color combined with the shorter length, was probably not appropriate, especially at my age.

You'll stand out from the crowd in this cute dress
Wore this to a wedding in Florida and got tons of compliments, especially on the color. The texture of the material looks better and more interesting in person than in the pics. Before I saw it, I was worried it wouldn't be dressy enough, but it definitely was. The cut is very flattering and it's a really comfortable dress. I usually wear either a 4 or a 6, and both sizes fit me, but I decided on the 6 so I'd be more comfortable sitting/dancing etc. I'm not usually a Lilly Pulitzer person but this is a great dress!

Great Color
I really liked this dress because of the fun color and simple shape. I sized up because the 8 was just a little tighter. I got a ton of complements in this dress, it was definitely a hit. The length was perfect for a wedding and the neckline was cute but did not show off too much. The color really is what makes this a great dress.

This was the perfect dress for a wedding.
It was so comfortable yet elegant and I got so many compliments. I absolutely loved the color and the way it fit. I am 6'1 so it was mid-thigh on me but completely appropriate and perfect for dancing and pictures. It runs pretty true to size even though I probably could've gotten away with a 4 because it was a little big in the waist but other overall I recommend this dress to anybody. I was very sad to see it go!

A music-themed wedding at a concert venue!
This dress was perfect and super flattering! I don't have any curves but this dress hugged in all the right places to give me an hourglass shape! It was also a great color and very comfortable with a slight stretch that allowed me to chow down on delicious wedding food and cupcakes!

Loved the color, not so much the dress
I ordered this dress last minute. I'm normally a 4 but depending on the reviews I'll either order a 6 or 2. After reading the reviews I sized down, got the 4 and 2. Pros: loved the color, great material, very light, length was perfect. Cons: the top part was loose on me, the dress kept going up so I was pulling on it the whole night. Maybe I should have ordered a 0. Would not rent again.
