Not what I Expected
While all of my other experiences with RTR have been wonderful, this was my first let down. I typically wear a 4 in Lilly Pulitzer dresses, so i rented the 4 and was told that my back up size (2) was unavailable. Unfortunately, when the dress came, it was much too large and extremely unflattering. It did nothing for my shape and felt similar to wearing a sack. I was expecting more of a satin appearance when it came to the material, and it was more of a cotton. If the backup size had been available, I definitely think it would have worked. I think something must have gone wrong with the mail during the holiday, because I didn't receive a refund for placing for return within 24 hours. I still plan to continue to use RTR - I'll just be sure to get a back up next time!

Great Dress!
I rented this dress for my bridal shower and it worked perfectly! I typically wear a size 6, but after reading the reviews, I ordered a 4 as my back up size, and that one fit much better than the 6. The shoulders are very structured but the hips and waist are looser, so if you are (like me) pear shaped, you'll probably be able to size down. The fabric is great, and I love that the gold in the dress has a little sparkle to it. The dress was a little short on me for sitting and opening gifts (I'm 5'7") but it was great with a little maneuvering! Overall, great dress to rent. Dressy without being over-the-top. So, so classy. Loved it!

Great dress for baby bump!
I'm nearly 6 months pregnant with twins and wore this dress to my baby shower last weekend. Pre-pregnancy I typically wore a size 4 dress, but this time I ordered a size 6 and it worked perfectly. Yes, it was a little short (I'm 5'10), but I paired this with black tights and didn't have a problem. I would say if you don't have an hourglass figure, order a size down as the dress doesn't really have much shape to it. In a perfect world, the arms of the dress would have been a little bit shorter and had a little more fit to them (they are somewhat shapeless, and hit at an odd place on the arm - you can't roll them up either as the inside fabric is a lighter shade of black), but other than that it really was the perfect dress for the occasion. I received tons of compliments!

Classy dress
I was very happy with my rent the runway experience. I rented this dress in a size 4 and they did not have back up in a size 2. It does run big and I could have worn the 2, even though I am always a size 4 dress. I am 5'1 so am always concerned about dresses being too long. However, this dress was mid thigh length on me in spite of the fact it was big in other places. The length was perfect! Thjis was a very classy dress that was attractive.

Cute and comfy!
I wore this dress for my bridal luncheon. I got lots of complements and was quite comfortable, too. As others said, the dress runs a bit large. I probably could have worn a size two. Otherwise, great dress.

Gorgeous
I ordered the sizes I usually wear, 2 and 4...both were too big. I guess the sizes run big. if you are ordering, order your size and a smaller one, not a larger size. I wound up not able to wear it...but I would order it again in the smaller size next time...The material is to die for.

This dress was great! Very comfortable and has a flattering fit. It runs a bit large. (Which was nice, since I just had a baby and was able to wear a size 4!)

I own this dress in a summer pattern but this was perfect for a winter holiday event. The fabric is a cotton blend so not as shimmery as it appears in photos but still looked beautiful. I would rent it again in a heart beat.

Great dress and great customer service
I rented this dress for my sister's bachelorette party in October. I highly recommend sizing down, I am definitely a 6 and I wore the 4. I needed to return it right when the hurricane was coming and I emailed and the nice folks at RTR gave me an extra few days to return it which was very appreciated.

Classy and comfortable.
I rented this dress for an engagement party (Stock the Bar theme) being thrown for me and my fiance. I normally wear a size 4 and if the 4 doesn't fit I usually have to go up to a 6. However, after reviewing the reviews for the dress, I ordered a back-up size 2. I ended up wearing the 2. I loved this dress! Super flattering and comfortable. I received tons of compliments. I actually paired the dress with black tights because it's February and cold. But it would look super cute with bare legs, too. Up close, I could tell the dress had been dry cleaned a few times (the black was slightly faded) but that didn't keep me from wearing the dress.

Cute dress; seemed a little 'used'
I rented a 4 and a 6 in this dress for an engagement party. I tend to wear either a 4 or 6 in dresses and in this one, I ended up wearing the 4 as the overall fit was a little better and not so boxy. I paired it with black tights and heels. It was a cute dress but I think it's seen better days - the dress seemed to be a little 'worn out'. The black fabric looked like it had been laundered a few times and the colors overall just seemed a little off. It's an easy dress to wear and was fine for the event.

A little baggy
I rented this dress as a backup and ended up wearing the other dress I rented for my occasion. I usually love Lilly dresses but this dress sort of made me feel like I was wearing a potato sack (sorry Lilly!) even in the size 0. Maybe it's because I'm petite but it just didn't feel quite right.

Prompt shipping! : )
I rented this dress to wear to a rooftop engagement party in New York City and I thought it was perfect for the occasion. I believe the dress runs somewhat on the bigger size, as I’m a typical size 4 but I read past reviews who said to order down a size, which I did. Regardless of the long sleeve style of the dress, the light weight material was appropriate for an August evening party. I would rent this dress again in a heart beat!

Great dress. Lots of compliments!
I usually wear a size 6, but the 4 fit better overall though it was snug in the breast areas (34D). It's a little loose in the middle which is good if you want to "hide" a little there. The 6 fit better in the breast, but I felt it was too loose in the middle. Overall, I felt very comfortable. It was perfect for the occasion (baby shower).

Comfortable Dress
I am normally a size 8 on top and 6 on the bottom. The size 6 in this dress fit perfectly. I'm also 5'3" and I liked that this dress hit well above the knee on me.

I loved this dress but..
I ended up returning this dress the shoulder were so unelieveably tight I could not lift my arms at all it was crazy. You cant have any sort of braod shoulder or muscle defitnition to wear this dres. It fit every else and was almost to big so the bigger size would of just looked to frumpy. To bad

Although I'm not typically a Lilly Pulitzer fan I really loved this dress. Super comfortable, great for fall, and an easy fit.

Another win from RTR!! This dress is a bit longer on me, as I'm not 5'10", but still fit like a dream. It's comfortable and easy to wear; I paired with black tights and black heels and it was perfect. It's simple enough for any event, yet works perfectly for a cocktail party.

I'm currently 8 months pregnant and wanted to wear something lovely and non-maternity looking to my baby shower this past weekend. I rented this dress in a 2 (which I normally wear, when not pregnant)and 4. Though this is a loose shift waist, the 2 was snug but the 4 was perfection! I wore thigh high stiletto boots and lots of vintage gold jewelry, my hair up in a chignon. Just a lovely dress and got so many compliments. This would also be so perfect on a cruise with flat gold sandals and big gold hoops, long waist length necklace, etc. for a more casual look.

Love lilly!
LOVED this dress. Very classy. I would definitely buy this dress if i found it on sale. I'm between a size 2 and 4, depending on the day, and the 4 fit perfectly. The 2 would have been too tight, and a 6 would have been way too big.

Perfect for a fall wedding!
I rented this dress for a wedding in Chapel Hill, NC. It was a perfect choice for the affairr. The dress itself fit me perfectly. I have long legs so I always worry about dresses being too short - this dress showed the perfect amount of leg. It was nice having the 3/4 sleeves as it did get chilly later on in the evening. All in all, I highly reccommend this dress!

Classy and not too "Lilly-ish"
I rented this dress for a sorority rush event. It was beautiful and looked great for an event that was not quite cocktail but dressier than casual. The dress is maybe a little short for taller girls (I am 5'8") but it still looks good. I loved this dress because it didn't scream "Lilly Pulitzer" and looked like a wintertime dress, unlike most of the summery Lilly patterns. Also, the dress appeared a little silky to me in the picture, but it is not that kind of fabric (which isn't a problem at all!).

Short, but cute :)
Cute dress! The fabric wasn't quite what I expected, but all in all it worked well. I thought the size was true (I wore a 12 which is normally what I wear). I thought it was a bit short (I'm 5' 6") since I'm in my late 30s, but I still wore it and loved it.

Cute, a little boxy
This is a very pretty dress in a more formal fabric. The fit is fairly boxy, so not something to accentuate curves. The length is short, though keeps it from coming across "dowdy", and makes it a great choice if you like to emphasize your legs, rather than upper body. It wasn't the perfect choice for my girls night, as I opted for something in a more casual style and fabric, but would have been great for a more dressy occasion. Was an OK rental for me.

I rented this dress for a casual beach-side wedding in February 2012. Received tons of compliments and had a blast dancing the night away! The dress was very comfortable and fit perfectly. Size 4 was a little snug on my thighs, but the 6 was perfect. Very flattering and slimming!

Great Dress!
This dress was perfect with a pair of tan pumps for a rehearsal dinner at a downtown venue. I usually wear a 4, but they only had a 2 available and it fit perfect (probably because of the tunic style). I loved the dress and had many compliments!

Couldn't Wear It
This was my second dress and so I could only get one size in this one. I read reviews that said it ran large so I opted for a size 4 (I usually wear a 6 but it wasn't available) and should have not even bothered. This dress was a bit tight and didn't hang on me at all like I thought it would. The material is also thicker than it appears in the picture. Ended up returning it.

Easy to wear!
I hosted my cousin's baby shower so I was cooking and running around and this dress was perfect for it! It was covered so I didn't have to worry about bending over or moving around a lot. I really liked the sleeve length because I usually wear sleeveless with a sweater so it was nice to not have to worry about a cardigan or anything. I wore it with opaque black tights and ankle boots.

Everything was so easy and perfect. I will be using RTR very often!! Thanks so much!
Both sizes arrived the day before the event just as promised. The dresses we clean and ready to wear after a little bit of ironing. I had time to steam the dress but it would have been nice to have it steamed and ready to wear. I really loved my first time with RTR and will DEFINITELY be using them often!! Thanks so much!

It's even cuter in real life.
Loved it on the website, it's even cuter in real life. Would have been appropriate for the event planned, which was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy. Through the week of the storm and return, RTR customer service handled my return with such grace and professionalism!
