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.

Girly fun dress
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.

Tight in the chest area. I had to find a bra that will smash my bosoms down.
Love the pockets. I would just get a size up if you're big chested.

The length is a bit long for someone that's petite but the stripes make it so flattering that I didn't mind!

Loved this dress!
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 rented this dress for my law school graduation.
The fit is true-to-size and it fit like a glove! The material is thick and the extra poof in the skirt provides the "class" you need for any event!

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!

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.

snug in the bodice
Loved this dress! Too bad I'm still trying to figure out my size again at 3 mos post-partum. It fit great, until I got to my ribs - then it was too snug to breathe. The fabric is great, and the cut is flattering. I really wish I could have worn it!

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!

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!

Fun dress that's great for work
This dress is wonderful to wear to work and then transition to after work events. I wore this to a meeting I had with the Swiss Ambassador to the US with a blazer and it was perfection! The only down side for me was that the waist ran a bit short and being 5'8" and long waisted it hit me a bit funny. With that in mind I wouldn't rent it again, but would totally recommend for those who are 5'6" and shorter.

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.

Love the pockets!
This dress has pockets which I LOVED! I am usually a 6 in Kate Spade but I went with my backup size which was an 8 so that I had more room to breathe. There is no stretch with this dress. I liked it so much I actually ended up buying it!

Beautiful dress
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!

Elegant and classic, but TIGHT for large busts
I wore a cardigan to try and camouflage the fact that this dress was squeezing the life out of my breasts. I usually wear a 0 or 2, so I ordered a 2 based on comments that the chest could fit tight, but my 32DDD was smoothed flat and looked misshapen even though I sized up. There is NO stretch, either. The waist was great (I think my waist measure 24" or 25" and it fit like a glove). I'm on the taller side at 5'9" and this hit just below my knees nicely. Lots of compliments from women in this dress.

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!

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.

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!

Totally adored this dress. It was cute and comfortable. The pockets... LOVE!!
Perfect fit. I didn't feel like by C-cups were compromised. I could breathe. Perfect length. The only con was that I had to return it.

Classy & Elegant with pockets
I didn't like this dress at first, but it grew on me the longer I wore it. At first I thought the dress was too modest and covered more than I wanted. The dress was tight in the chest area (but I have a 32D/34C), but I was happy I could wear a normal bra and the tightness in the chest gave me a waist with the fit and flare. Most of the compliments I received over the course of the night was from older guests. My boyfriend told me I looked "elegant". I would certainly recommend this dress to anyone looking for a modest, classy, comfortable and forgiving dress.

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.

Hesitant at first, ended up loving it!
This was perfect for a summer outdoor wedding. Only complaint is it was a bit tight in the bust area, to the point where it was SO hard to zip up with a bra on, so even though I'm a 36C I was able to go braless. Got many compliments and very flattering!

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.

Good Modest Choice, Not for long torsoed (is that even a word?) people
This dress probably would have looked great, if my boobs weren't as big as they are (which isn't very big, btw) and if my torso wasn't as long. The size 6 fit my waist better, getting that nice nipped in waist look, but I couldn't zip it up over my boobs (36C, nothing astronomically big). The 8 fit, but was a bit too loose. This meant the front of the skirt didn't stay tight to my waist and gave the impression I was pregnant in some photos. The fabric is GORGEOUS, nice and stable, and the craftsmanship is impeccable, just not for my curvier dimensions.

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.

Lovely work dress
This was a great dress to change up the work week. It fit true to size. My only complaints were that it was a little long - just past my knees and I'm 5'5 - and it was of a heavier material that made it less of a summer dress. The dress was of a beautiful quality though.
