Loved the color
Big on the top, but still didn't need to wear a bra. I have a shorter torso so the shoulders kept slipping off. Overall pretty dress.

Beautiful color, amazing fit
This dress definitely runs big (like most Kate Spade) so definitely size down. It was a little tight in the rib cage area but not uncomfortable. Zipper can be a bit tricky since it's on the side so make sure you have someone standing by to help. I didn't have to wear a bra with it and had no problems. Overall amazing dress, color, and fit!

Gorgeous and flattering for my curves
The quality of this dress is excellent, and I truly felt like a princess all night as I wore it. The dress felt really good, I didn't need to wear a bra, and the cut/structure hid my imperfections. My husband absolutely loved how I looked! I'm 36C and the top of the dress fit me perfectly, so I can see where it might be too large up top if you have a smaller bust. I'm not sure if anyone else mentioned this, but the one con is that it does wrinkle/crease easily and the wrinkles will be there for the whole night. However, it wasn't super noticeable and didn't bother me like I thought it would! Highly recommend!

Classy, elegant, and timeless
I ordered the 0 and the 2. Both fit, but the zipper on the zero was broken. The two was perfect! I got so many compliments all night. This was a black tie optional wedding and I felt so comfortable to dance and move around. Would definitely recommend this dress to a friend. The deep V back was absolutely perfect!

Birthday dress!
It was perfect! I loved it for myself for my birthday dinner. I would caution people who are not okay wearing sticky "boobs" or fabric tape away from this, however. I had to wear sticky cups and fabric tape for it to stay where it needed too. Got many compliments! My boyfriend is insisting I rent it again!

This dress made me feel so sophisticated and pretty!
I ordered this dress for a banquet and it worked out perfectly. I am normally between a 6 and an 8 so I ordered both and ended up wearing the 6. I am small chested so it gapped a little in the chest but nothing terrible. The dress was very flattering and I received lots of compliments. I would definitely rent it again!

I absolutely LOVED this dress and wanted to keep it! Not only did it fit great, I didn't have to wear a bra with it. I did wear spanks. I was able to move around and dance in this.

Loved this dress! I got tons of compliments on it and I felt great wearing it. The fabric is heavy enough to easily go without a bra. I would highly recommend it.

A Very Special Valentines
I wore this for a special Valentines dinner with my fiancé. This dress fit perfectly and was super flattering (I'm pretty small and thin up top, and I have 42" hip and the dress was IDEAL). The color was perfect and the bow added just the right amount of sweetness! This dress made me feel amazing!

Loved this dress - I wore it with a beaded choker & black strappy pumps
Fit well, I wish it had poofed out just a little more! Did not wear a bra as the back is just a little bit too low to hide the strap

The dress was stunning and I received so many compliments! The straps were a tad looser than I would have cared for, but it was worth it. I will be renting this dress again!!

Too big for a petite frame
I usually wear a size 00P or 0P so I thought it'd be unlikely that this fit. I have unlimited so I ordered some back up dresses and ended up wearing a different dress. The 0 would probably fit someone who is normally a 2 and look great on them. The dress was pretty nice. The color is very vibrant and the bow adds a little flair, which makes the dress classic looking with just a touch of pop. The fabric is also pretty thick so I don't think a bra would be needed. Didn't work for me, but a nice dress.

Perfect for semi-formal/formal occasion
This dress is a super comfortable fit, easy to dress up or dress down, and is beautiful in pictures! It runs a little big- I wear a 2 normally and could have worn a 00 in this dress. Overall, I LOVED it!

Beautiful dress!
Loved this dress. I'm typically always a size 4, however I went with the 2. The 4 fit me better in the rib cage, but the a line shape on my more hour glass figure just didn't look as flattering. It made my bottom half appear larger. Tthe more fitted size 2 with less dramatic of an A line shape was a better fit for me. It fit like most size 2s in the rib cage as it was a big snug, but since I wore a sticky bra and not a normal bra, I could get away with it here. As for the color, it is a bit more orangey than pictured, but definitely still red. The second picture I put up I think shows the true color more, excuse the wind blown hair. I never really go for reds, so it was a nice change of pace, and I felt like I stood out among the other dresses at the wedding. The quality of the dress was beautiful, thought that I would have a bigger problem with wrinkling but I didn't really notice or care. Would definitely recommend renting!

Show stopping bow
Loved everything about this dress fitted up too loose at the bottom and the pockets were a plus! Definitely meant for a fuller bust and highly recommend a sticky bra or no bra if you feel comfortable with that

Loved the bow on the back!
This was my first Kate Spade dress rental, and per the previous reviews, I ordered a size smaller for backup. I ended up wearing the size 6 backup dress, which was a nice confidence boost! I loved the preppy style and the bow was darling. It was a great length and so comfortable. I ended up wearing a backless sticky bra because the front would have been too big if I went braless. At first I wore pearls and a bun updo to really accentuate the preppy look, but I ended up looking like Milly from Scandal! I may rent this dress again for Halloween and make that my costume!

Beautifully constructed dress made even better by the pockets!
The vibrant color paired with the beautiful construction of this dress made it stand out. The bow seems to be the iconic part of this dress, as I would often get compliments from those behind me while waiting in line. I found it a bit too roomy in the bust area, could have gone down a size. This is a shock for me because generally I have to have dresses tailored to accommodate my bust! Highly recommend this flattering dress for any occasion. The length was short but I found it just long enough.

Beautiful Dress!
I loved this dress. The 10 was not flattering in the body, but too tight in the bust, so I ended up wearing the 12. Even though I felt it was a little more boxy, I received tons of compliments!

This dress was perfect for our Christmas party! The color was great and I got a lot of compliments.
It fit very true to size. I am 6' tall and it was a good length, even for me. Short, but still appropriate for a formal event.

I'm a B-cup, so the dress wasn't as tight as I would've hoped in the chest area, but other than that it was a great dress for Valentine's Day dinner!

Perfect for work and cocktail party!
I wore this dress to work with a suit jacket over it, then out that night to a cocktail party and it was beautiful! I met a really hot guy and he may not know...but I greatly have the dress to thank for our date next week. :) My friend took a picture which I thought I could post, but unknowingly she deleted because she didn't like how she looked in it. :((

Super fun color and so classy!
This dress definitely runs very large! If you normally wear a 2 I would recommend a 00. The material was much thicker than I expected so it seemed to weigh it down a little bit. I wish I got a better picture but we were having too much fun dancing, definitely a dress made for dancing!

Perfect for the holidays!
This for was awkward on me but I still ended up wearing it. The 12 for everywhere except my ribs/bust. The 14 fit that area but was a little big everywhere else. I used a lot of fashion tape and the dress ended up looking great-- but I wouldn't rent again. If you are bigger in the ribs/bust the fit might be awkward. But the dress is beautiful! Loved the back and the color is amazing.

Sexy and sweet
Perfect red dress for a work holiday party. I stood out in a sea of black. The low back and bow are sexy and sweet at the same time. And you can never go wrong with pockets.

Felt like a star all night long!
Perfect dress for a New Years Eve party at a country club! The fit of this dress was comfortable and flattering--I danced the night away! I ordered the 2 and the 4 and the 2 was great. I had one minor issue with the size 2 dress hem in the back (it had come loose and I noticed as I put the dress on for the first time) but I safety-pinned it and all was well. The big bow in the back adds some fun flair. Thanks for another winner, RTR!

Bday dress, Beautiful color
Pros- Eye catching color, lovely glazed red color, perfect for bright and dimly lit areas, makes you feel special and perfect for occasion such as birthday or formal event Cons- Size runs large but not all over. Size 8 was too fitted on the waist and perfect on the shoulder and bust. I had to wear size 10 to feel comfortable around the waist however the dress was slacking around my shoulder and bust so wasn't the best fit.

This dress was perfect for a Christmas Eve dinner!
The dress fit well. I'm typically a size 8/10 and wore the size 10. The waist was fitted but I dont have the bust to fill the top, so the top was a little big. The low but back and now we're beautiful, although I couldn't wear a bra or spanx. No big deal - love the dress and will rent again!

A festive choice for a Christmas party!
I ordered a size 2 and a size 4. The 4 felt a little big in the bodice, so I went with the 2. It was a little shorter than the 4, but that was ok. I loved the pockets and the bow in the back. I got several compliments.
