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!

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.

Super cute and elegant!
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.

Got so many compliments on the bow in the back! Such a great festive color for my work holiday party
It was kind of loose-ish in the bust area which was odd considering I am 34G. Made it work though. Cannot wear a normal bra with it as the back is low. The back is the best part of the dress! The color is also super bright and festive. Super flattering and classy!

Stunning dress
Rented this for my daughter (5'6" - 120 lbs) and it was STUNNING! Fit very well and was easy to move in throughout the evening. Color is more tomato red than blue red. Thank you RTR.

Very festive for a winter wedding!
Loved this dress so much!! Wore the 00 and had plenty of room in it. Didn't wear a bra because of the low back, that probably would have helped to fill it out a bit more. Very true to size for Kate Spade dresses

Very classy.
This dress is really nice for a company party or a nice dinner. The back isn't too revealing, nor the front. It ran a little big, I was able to fit into the smaller of the two sizes I got.

Perfect holiday party dress!
Loved this classic holiday dress. The red was vibrant, material felt very sturdy and high quality. The fit and flare was perfectly nipped at the waist. Only con was the fact that I couldn't wear a bra with the dress due to the low v in the back. And the dress was too loose in the chest area and gaped awkwardly when you leaned forward. But still thought this dress was darling and would definitely rent again!

Very festive with the red color and bow back! Love K8 sp8de :) !!
The material is a bit thicker and heavy making it look larger than tighter/petite. Overall a fun and classy dress to arrive in style and personality!

The back bow detail is AMAZING! Perfect for a holiday wedding or event!
I saw this dress a few months ago and HAD to have it for my girlfriends Dec. 3 wedding. When I received it in the mail it was everything I was hoping for and more! The back of the dress is for sure the statement piece. I styled it with black lace up heels and a fun multi color Rebecca Minkoff clutch (also from RTR)! I ordered a size 0 & 2 and didn't even need to try the 2 on. The 0 fit me but was a little large in the bust area (I wear a size 34A). The back of the dress is open so you could wear cutlets with it to fit better but I did not. This dress did not disappoint!

Great dress- fun Christmas red
Loved this dress! It was such a pretty red color, and looked great for my husbands work Christmas party. I would say the sizing runs more like j crew sizing- I wish I would've gotten one size smaller, but it was close enough to work. I didn't wear a bra wth it- all of mine would have shown in the back. (The back is super cute, though!) Would recommend!

All around stunning!!
The color, the material, the bow., the pockets... Amazing. Wore this to our annual "jingle bell ball" and received a ton of compliments. This dress is more of an orangey-red in person but with a camera flash looks more true red. I am fairly petite (120 pounds, 5'1", 34B) and the 0 was still a bit big on me. I ended up taping some inserts to use as a bra to my front but it worked just fine! Hated to send this dress back! Love Kate Spade and RTR!

Got compliments on it all night, but the fit was a bit off and I wasn't comfortable in it.
It was a bit bulky. I'm a 32DD, but a size 10(ish) waist. It didn't fit my curves right when usually this sort of waist line does. It didn't really offer enough support in the bust, either (though I went braless anyways)
