Wore this for a breast cancer fundraiser and received so many complements. The length was great. A little snug in the bust area. Loved the subtle touches of silver in the lace overlay.

I rented for the bright colour and all of the other glowing reviews. The dress was actually a much thicker material and more textured than I expected but once I put it on it still felt good. Photographs great.

Perfect bright summer wedding dress

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first RTW experience. Everything was perfect! The dress is a bright magenta and the fabric was lighter than I anticipated based on photos. The top layer is a lace with silver shimmer . I wore it to a friends wedding in Florida with nude heels and silver earrings. I also managed to match my lipstick! Lots of compliments. Super fun rental!

I thought the fit was small compared to another Lilly dress I have, slightly small through the arms. Lovely classic style. The fabric was a bit thin so every bulge showed but with a body shaper it was fine.

Usually wear a size 10, but thought it hugged a bit too much so went with a size up. Loved the look and feel--it looks short in the picture, but is appropriate length for 5'5"-5'7" girls.

I was very worried this dress was going to be too tight based on the other reviews but it was great! My second size was unavailable but the 10 fit fine. It was a bit tight through the chest and arms but fit great everywhere else! I liked this dress, didn't love it but several ppl told me it was flattering so maybe I'm being hard on myself. Great first RTR experience!

The fabric does not stretch, so I wore the 10 because the 8 did not fit across my bust. I am an 8 in pants and a 12 in suit jackets. I received compliments all night. Love this dress.

Terrific color and subtle shimmer

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Fit true to size. Color spectacular and the subtle shimmer in the pattern is gorgeous in person and in pictures. I felt it was almost too short and I'm only 5' 5" but then again it looks VERY short on the model so that should be expected. Wore this to a press launch event for work. Was a little bright among all the typical black from New Yorkers but i didn't care because i love color. I got this at the nyc flatiron store when another dress wasn't right - so glad I did. The store was lovely and the sales women were great.

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.

Gorgeous color!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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.

I wore the 10 to have a bit more room, but the 8 fit like a glove! I am curvy so I was concerned it would be uncomfortable in the hips but it was a very comfy dress. And the length was good. Not too short.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

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.

my favorite RTR dress so far...

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!
