This picture does no justice. I loved this dress and it's an eye catcher. You can have the lowest confidence, put this dress on and shine up like a new penny!! Fits true to size. I am even busty, 36d, and felt roomy in a 10 which is what I wear. I received copious amount of compliments that day and in pics.

I wore this dress to my bridal shower. The dress fit very well, the only thing I noticed was the upper part of it was a little wide so when I bent down or anything it created a small gap. Nothing major! Loved it!

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!

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.

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).

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.

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!

Nice dress for a garden wedding...

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Glad I chose this dress- I was carrying a little extra weight, and still felt good because was forgiving in the midsection and showed off my legs. I was between sizes and went with the larger for more hip room. The dress didn't have the sheen I thought it would; it was pretty flat (may have been from use) but overall, it was a nice dress for a garden wedding.

I got so many compliments on this dress! Perfect for the beach wedding I attended.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I usually wear a 6 or an 8, but I wasn't able to rent the 8, so I chose the 6 and the 10 to be safe (and Lily's clothes tend to run small). The 6 fit me ok - it was a little tight in the arms (which other people have commented on) and tighter than I thought I tunic style dress should fit around the hips. The 10 was big on me, but not so big that it looked baggy. The arms had a much nicer fit and was more comfortable than the 6 and the length was fine. I definitely think the 8 would have been perfect, but I was perfectly happy in the dress I had and everyone else seemed to like it too!

This dress is truly beautiful and would have worked perfectly for my rehearsal dinner, but yikes! It was really, really short! Lilly Pulitzer dresses trend on the shorter side, but this was too much for my rehearsal dinner - an event where I would be front and center. Wish it had worked out!!

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.

Cute dress; seemed a little 'used'

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
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.

Conservative but distinctive

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
It's a great dress for a conservative Jewish wedding. I wore both the 6 and the 4 - the first for a morning brunch ceremony, the second for the evening reception at a concert/beer hall. Both sizes fit, but the 4 was a bit tighter and shorter, of course. It's a linen fabric, so it does wrinkle, but you can't really tell. It's a boxy, mod fit. Easy to dress up or down. This dress should fit and flatter most women with no problem.

Dress is pretty, but material is matte and a little thicker than expected!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this to a dinner for my mom's birthday when my family was in NYC visiting from California. The dress was very pretty, but I thought it was lighter and thinner material and maybe shiny. It's matte and a little thicker, but to be honest, it worked for me because it was very cold that night and it kept me warmer than something thinner would have. The design is very pretty! Nice colors, also! However, it didn't wow me! Maybe I needed to jazz it up with more jewelry.

This dress has been rented a lot. It was not brand new as the other dresses I have rented appeared to be. I know this is a popular rental but I was a little disappointed to see the fuzzies on the dress. It looked fine in photos and no one else seemed to notice.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
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.

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.
