Close but not quite

The dress overall is large for the size, but the armholes are shockingly small. It was digging into my armpits, but I had tons of room everywhere else. Would be great for a work or everyday look, but I couldn't handle the small armholes.

June Cleaver, but in a good way.

The dress fits very well. I paired it with sling back peep toe heels with a bow at the toe and a strand of pearls. Very classy. The fabric is cotton and silk blend. It lends itself to a more casual feel. It's not black tie but can be worn for almost anything else. I loved the pockets and the fuller skirt can hide a little tummy. It also looks great with a shrug sweater.

Great dress for my niece's confirmation and brunch.

Loved the heavy fabric, dress really held its shape. Only one small issue with a little gaping under the arms. Very flattering length too!

LOVE this dress!

Wore this to a luncheon and got so many compliments on the dress. It's comfortable, fits well & even has pockets in the skirt! I'm 5' 9" & the dress hit at my knees...I loved that it was longer than most dresses. Will absolutely rent this again!

A modern twist on a 50s classic A Line.

Let me be clear- I. LOVE. THIS. DRESS. I will definitely rent this dress again. Fit my larger busy perfectly and hit knee length. I got so many compliments on this dress at work and wore it afterward to a girls happy hour and it was barely wrinkled at the end of the day. This dress is a winner!

Very trendy look.

This midi length was vey cute. I ordered the 8 and it was snug through the top and the looser in the waist. Overall very cute.

Kate Spade Classy

Overall I loved the front of the dress but from behind the dress was less than flattering! The fuller/longer length skirt isn't a great idea for a short person but I did get a lot of compliments. I definitely felt classy and it was the perfect combination between dressy and business for a honor society event.

Cute Dress

The waist is high in this dress so it fits snug at the top and is not tight anywhere below the rib cage. Bustier women will want to avoid this one. The weight is good. Not to heavy. Not to light. Overall a fun dress to wear.

Love, love this dress!

I loved this dress. I wore the 8. I wore it to a party at our country club. It was comfortable and was dressy but not too dressy. I felt great in it! I loved it so much I wore it again the next night to my daughter's vocal recital! It has pockets and the skirt has a little flare.

Love, love, love!

Worn for a wedding with black ankle-strap heels, bracelet and turquoise drop earrings - it was appropriate and fun! Loved that it has pockets. Was surprised that the 4 fit almost as tight as the 2 (I have a pretty small rib cage, but went with the 4 so I could breathe a little better)

Perfect graduation dress (with pockets for my phone and keys under the gown)

The material was clearly high quality and I felt elegant and beautiful. It was perfect to wear with a bra. I was happy with it from start to finish!

Afternoon tea with Kate Spade

Wore this for my mother in law's birthday afternoon tea celebration. Absolutely perfect choice. Fabric is moderately heavy and the dress is well structured. No wrinkling or bunching. Other reviews talked about small armholes, but I seemed to have the opposite problem. The size 4 armholes were so big they sort of pooched outward. The 2 was perfect- slightly snug in the bust but the armholes were very adequate. I have slender arms but by no means an athletic build. The dress would not be suitable for someone relatively busty. The waist was beautifully tapered. Received many compliments.

Great dress, would have worn if party didn't change due to weather!

Dress is a nice weight, fabric is not shiny making it versatile. I loved the pockets. I am a fairly standard size 4 but could hardly zip the top around my chest, which is not huge. My husband thought I looked "flat chested" in the 4 even though it fit better around the arms.

Loved this dress, so comfortable and the pockets just topped it off.

Loved this dress, was so comfortable to wear. I'm a 36B/C and besides feeling like my boobs looked liked they were squished together ( they didn't feel like it just looked like it) I loved everything about the dress especially the pockets. Would rent again.

Very classy.

I ordered a size 10 and the size 12 as a backup. The size 12 fit me better but the lining fell below the hem of the dress so I had to wear the 10. It was snug but it fit better after I wore it for a bit. I got lots of compliments on the dress.

Can never go wrong with Kate Spade!

This dress was a replacement dress. Beautiful dress! The only suggestion that I would make to the next renter is to consider your body type. I do not have a curvy body with a small waist, I am straight up and down. This dress really gets tight around the waist. I probably would have gone up to a size 6 and been more comfortable. Other than that loved he dress!

Chest far too small

This dress for me perfectly in everywhere except the chest. I couldn't zip it up with a bra and once I took that off it was so tight I could barely breathe. I normally wear an 8 or a 10 but this size 8 was not even a possibility. The fabric doesn't have any stretch to it so you're pretty limited in fit. I didn't end up wearing this dress to the event. My chest is size 36D but I have never had any issue fitting into a size 8 or even smaller sometimes. Definitely an odd fit.

Love Kate Spade dresses!

I must admit, I already own a Kate Spade A-line dress so I am partial but this dress worked great for me. Fits well in the bust, not too snug in the midsection and flairs at the hips. Shorter ladies should beware, the length is somewhat long. I'm 5'9 and it hits just past my knees. Great for work or holiday parties, I got compliments at both!

Rented this dress for work- absolutely perfect fit for my hour glass shape. I'm tall as well and the length was perfect (maybe too long for shorter people?!) will definitely rent again!

I'm between sizes 6 and 8 and (thanks to my hips) the 6 was too small. I think even the 8 would have been snug. Overall a gorgeous dress and anything Kate Spade is classy!

This was a great dress for feeling great but not necessarily standing out

Snug in chest for 34C, but as expected. With box cleats I wanted a more flattering fit. Pockets and detail beautiful. I paired with a jacket for work as part of unlimited. Would definitely consider buying this dress as part of regular wardrobe.

Classic Kate Spade

This dress fit like a glove! I rented this for a Spring Plantation wedding in Charleston, SC and it was perfect! So classic and tailored. I loved the pockets and exposed gold zipper up the back. Fun details! Fabric was heavy with some flexible give and so beautiful. I found that I didn't even need to wear a bra. Probably because I have 34DDs and it was snug.... Wearing a bra just made things feel tight. Fun to wear my bright red, patent leather Kate Spade open-toe heels. Fun pop of color and feel like such a girl! Had so many compliments all night long. Would rent again in a heartbeat!

Cute dress, but heavy fabric

I didn't end up wearing this dress as it was a bit weighty and long- the length fell past my knees. The material was heavy for a spring wedding. It was a very pretty and classic flare design, though!

Love love love

This dress was beautiful and very high quality fabric. It was pockets which is fabulous. I usually wear a 6 but needed the 8. Also, the lining of the dress stuck out past the hem. I imagine that was just the one I got and not how it's supposed to be. Conservative knee length. Got a lot of compliments.

Classic Kate Spade

I was given this dress as a back-up because the dress I originally ordered was returned in a damaged state. I wouldn't have picked this dress myself but I ended up wearing it to brunch with flat black sandals. It fit true to size and I think I could have gone down a size. It has pockets which is a major plus for me!

Loved this dress for a wedding! It has pockets and was super comfortable and flattering. I didn't get a full body shot, but being 5'11 it was nice to have a dress long enough. Super classy and comfy.

I wore this dress to work and paired with a cardigan. I really liked this dress, however the chest was a little snug in me. The material was thick and it was great quality. Added bonus is this dress has pockets.

Another nice dress from Kate Spade

I loved this dress! I had to request a replacement of this dress because the built in slip had been damaged ( I guess? ) and hung lower than dress. Second dress almost did the same, but was wearable. I wore the 4 in the picture, a little snug in the top area and under the arm pits. I would suggest going smaller on this dress... only if you're smaller in the chest area for a better fit, as the bottom is longer and fuller. This dress had pockets!! Which is always a win!! I would rent this again, but beware of it being damaged.

Wedding fun

The dress was very pretty and comfortable. The material was a little thick for a July Texas wedding but it wasn't a big deal. I'm glad I got a bigger back up size - the top is extremely tight. I'm not big up top at all and I needed the bigger size. Wonderful first rent the runway experience!
