So long and heavy

The dress looks so cute and casual on the model but I was literally swimming in it. It was practically a maxi dress on me and I'm 5'4". The material was also oddly heavy. I felt like I was wearing some kind of rococo costume instead of the cute casual dress the model is wearing.

Spring dress

The length was good, hit at the knees and I am 5'4. Too much fabric though, felt like it overwhelms a petite frame.

Pretty dress just not very flattering

Pretty dress and light weight for being outdoors this summer just wish it looked more flattering on. Comfortable too but never wore as I just didn't think I looked great in it.

Unflattering

I rented this for a casual party, but ended up wearing a different dress instead. The ties at the waist just added bulk, which made the dress rather unflattering. This could have been a fun dress, but the design of the ties made it too unflattering to wear.

Weird fit. Got for a graduation party but didn't wear. Skirt was very poofy. Not a flowy, casual fit at all

Not as expected

This dress looked so cute on the model but looked different in person and did absolutely nothing for me. I am 5'4" and expected it to be a little long, but it was down to my ankles and had a ton of extra fabric that really swallowed ne. The neckline under the ruffle was also weirdly high, so it hit at a strange spot. One roommate compared it to an older woman's nightgown and the other said I looked like a character in West Side Story. I usually love Kate Spade but this one was a dud.

Vibrant color, a bit overwhelming on my frame

Vibrant blue, good quality cotton, but wrinkles easily. Fit was true to size to slightly large (waist). The top ruffle was slightly overwhelming for everyday wear.

This is a pretty cotton dress. The fabric is more casual in person than it looks online. Like all Kate Spade dresses I found the size ran large.

Did not wear--weird armholes!

First things first, I didn't wear this--the armholes were really weird and uncomfortable. I was going to wear this with the sleeves up, but as you can see from the pictures, the armholes would have made this CRAZY revealing (the armholes came in halfway across my chest, inside of the bra strap!). If worn with sleeves off shoulder, it should be fine though! As you can see, the fit is pretty good--I'm between a 12 and 14 and the 12 was a good fit. The material was a little stiffer than I'd thought as well--a little more garden party than everyday.

Worked well for my bump!

I wore this at 25 weeks pregnant, and it fit perfectly, with additional room for my bump if I needed it. The off the shoulder ruffle, however, was not very easy to keep down and one side kept rolling in which was irritating. I was able to deal because off the shoulder was flattering, but would not ever purchase this dress. I'll also note it's just a crispy cotton material and best suited for a spring or summer wedding.

Wanted to love but material was weird and looked worn

I so badly wanted to love this but it was a big no for me. It ran very big and looked like it has been worn one too many times. From the pictures it looked more dressy to me. This dress is a cotton (or something similar) very casual material.

Scarlett O'Hara Barbie waist dreams

This was my second option from my first rental and I didn't end up wearing it because my other dress was so beautiful, but this one was amazing as well. I only say that it runs large because there is a lot of fabric and I felt like I looked a little bit like Scarlett O'Hara! But if that is what you're going for, then you do you, girl. It does have a sash so you can adjust the waist be as tight as you want which I really appreciate as a 32F.

This dress is beautiful, but for me it had a little too much fabric and made me look much larger than I am. I did not wear the dress.

I wore this dress with red tassel earrings, talking 'bout a statement!

I love this dress how it covers your tummy rolls in such an elegant fashion. I work at Kate Spade so it was nice to boost up my casual work attire for once!

GORGEOUS. Perfect all occasion summer dress.

Adored this one!! Wore to work, to brunch, to a bridal shower. The skirt is so full and breezy and the bodice so flattering. If only it had pockets it would be the perfect summer dress! Note: I couldn't wear a bra with this, but the fabric was tight and a little stretchy and the ruffle covered most of my boobs, so it worked out just fine.

Super cute!

This dress was really cute and flattering! I'm 5'7, 145 pounds, 36 DD, and typically wear a size 8. The size 8 fit perfectly! I have a fuller bust and did not have to wear a bra. The only downside is that this dress definitely shows sweat. I wore it to an outdoor wedding rehearsal dinner. It was over 90 degrees that day and you could see every drop of sweat. I had hoped the pattern would camouflage but it did not. I considered purchasing it but decided I would just rent it again at a later date.

Cute dress, papery fabric

I didn't end up wearing this because the bodice was too tight. It didn't give at all. The fabric felt stiff and slightly like paper and it wasn't all that comfortable. That being said, it's cute and I wish it would have worked out.

Fourth of July dress

This is a gorgeous dress. Side zipper, lots of fabric, and two ties on the side to adjust the waist. I rented the 4 and probably would have been better off in the 2, but it worked fine! Wore to a Fourth of July party and definitely stood out from the crowd!

This dress is so flattering and easy to adjust with the ties at the waist and the elastic around the shoulders. The colors are beautiful and the skirt is a flattering length. I would definitely rent it again!

Great vacation dress!

Wore this for a friend's bachelorette party in Mexico City and loved it so much I might end up buying it! I'm usually between and 4 and a 6 and the 4 was slightly large (had to tighten it a lot at the waist). It's super flattering and comfortable, got tons of compliment

High quality but didn't do anything for my body

I wanted to like this dress but it just didn't do anything for me. I rented the 12R but did not wear it. The blues in the floral print weren't as vibrant in person. The skirt was much longer than I anticipated. Maybe this would have worked if it was 6+ inches shorter? I also couldn't move my arms while keeping the ruffles down. Sadly I'll be returning without wearing.

Not for me

I was really looking forward to getting this dress but unfortunately it just didn't work. The fabric itself is a little stiff and the overall fit is large. Those factors, combined with what feels like one too many ruffles made the dress feel awkward and unflattering.

Fun, but not exactly as pictured

Pros: -The sleeves can be worn off the shoulder in a customizable placement, or up on the shoulders. -The colors are vibrant but not distracting, and flattering on any skin. -The fit is very forgiving- I didn't even need a bra. -The waist can be somewhat cinched for a more custom fit. Cons: -It's WAY more poofy than pictured. It has a fairly full skirt. The fullness of the skirt, paired with the sleeve ruffles, take away some of the formality you might be expecting. -The arm holes are surprisingly large, showing some side-boob. -It is longer than I anticipated, so I wore my tallest heeled shoes and that helped. -This dress doesn't fit at all like most Kate Spade sizing. It definitely runs large.

Beautiful but too big to wear

The material was heavy and honestly, if it did fit it would have been to hot to wear. It is NOT flowy. I rented a small based on the reviews, even though I am usually a M, I still think an XS would have been too big!

A Tent.

Way too big to look remotely normal. Too long and loose and too much fabric all over. Pretty colors though.
