So cute and flattering!!

Very striking dress that flatters- the cutout looks edgy but barely shows skin. Pretty and easy to wear

Green machine

Cute dress, nice fabric that has a sheen to it but runs a little small in the bust. Beautiful vibrant green.

Green dream, but tight in the bust

I love the dress, though it wasn't a perfect fit. It was too tight across my chest which made it a bit uncomfortable and also way too hot in the NYC summer heat.

Amazing color and full skirt

A fun dress for my sister's luau engagement party. Fit was amazing, loved the pockets! And the bright green color was great! No bra needed which is the only way I could have worn it. There's no room for a bra . The cut out in front was barely visible.

Cutest summer dress!

Ok, so I normally wear a 4, but only a 2 was available! So, I SQUOZE into the 2, lol! It was very tight at the top (obvi a size too small for me) but perfect in the skirt. No bra, no Spanx - easy to wear. Hey, it worked! Received numerous compliments. $80 rental for a $428 dress!

Unique Dress! Best for women with small chests

I was sold on the color, designer and skirt of the dress. The top showed a lot of cleavage and underboob for me. If you wear an A or B cup you should be fine. I ended up wearing a white crop top under it. I also found it a little hot around my legs.

Cute but TIIIIGHT in the Bust

Loved the shape and color of this dress but it ran super small in the bust. I'm typically a 14 in dresses. Sometimes Kate Spade dresses are tight in the bust so I occasionally size up depending on the shape of the dress and what RTR has available and I have never had a problem with a 16. This was a real problem. There was no hope in closing the side zipper whatsoever. I'm a 38D/DD for reference. If you have a more narrow rib cage, fit shouldn't be a problem.

the dreaded side zipper

pros: + amazing color + love the cut out + ties + shape of the top + holds you in on top cons: - wrinkles as soon as you look at it - odd length, wish it was an inch shorter - Kate Spade zippers are THE WORST and this one is on the side; had to lay down to zip it and pulled a muscle in my neck - runs a bit small if you have a wide ribcage; I don't have boobs and this was tight. loved this dress but I'd never pay full price for Kate Spade because their zippers are awful. RTR should do extra quality control on this brand.

Beautiful dress

The dress and the color is beautiful. I wore it only once but just bc it was running big on the top. I will definitely rent a size smaller and keep wearing it bc it's one of my favorites.

Gorgeous dress! Great color but didn't fit.

I'm normally a size 6 in a top. The dress zipped but was way to tight for me to wear. My bust size is 34C/D. Tried it on without a bra.

Fun, bright, and comfortable.

I ended up liking this dress a lot more than I thought I would. I almost didn't even wear it because I'm a bit busty and this dress did not especially cover that area as much as I would have usually liked. I am typically between a 12 and 14 and am glad I went with the 14 for the chest, but it resulted in the waist being a touch loose but that was okay. Very comfortable on a hot day outside, and the color was fantastic. Got multiple compliments from total strangers just as they were walking by. One thing to note, with the cutout, if you are busy, you wont be able to pull it up much higher without worrying about what you're showing through that. Overall it was great, and I'm sure I will get it again before summer is over. Perfect vacation dress.

Great color, kept cool in Southern heat

Got tons of compliments on this dress and it was super easy and cool in the Southern heat. Really comfy overall. I wore it to a work dinner and concert and it was great. Just be sure to adjust the straps so they don't fall off your shoulders!

perfect Kate Spade sun dress

This dress is perfect. I wore it to a casual outdoor wedding. I received countless compliments on this dress, even from the bride's mother! The green is bright and vibrant, a shade that would look good on anyone. The cut out is flirty without being too sexy. The pockets are deep enough to carry your phone, so no need carrying a purse and taking away from the fun details of the dress. I would definitely rent this dress again!
