Great dress, would definitely rent again!
I rented this dress as a backup and ended up wearing it! I'm petite and the top of the dress hit slightly below my natural waist, but not enough so that anyone but me noticed. The top was tight on my chest, I went bra-less and it was fine. Overall, loved this and would definitely rent again.

This dress worked well for a professional event. It was easy to wear and comfy- especially with the pockets.

Perfect color to stand out!
The top of this dress fits perfectly! I could've not worn a bra with the size 6, but wanted a little more arm room so I went with the size 8. The bottom is the perfect compliment to the top- it is structured with pleats but bubbles out AND HAS POCKETS!! Such a fun dress all around!

Worn by my daughter in her first pageant. She came in 3rd and won the People's Choice Award.
Fit beautifully once we got the zipper to work. The zipper is on its last leg and we didn't realize that until the day of the event.

Lovely color, odd fit
I rented this dress for my brother's wedding. The color, the fabric, and the formally were perfect for the event. The fit, however, was bizarre. The skirt is a bubble skirt, and the waist was very fitted. The hem of the skirt was so confining that getting in and out of the car gracefully was nearly impossible. It wasn't the best silhouette on my curvy frame, but it wasn't awful. The issue came from the fit on the bodice. I am very, very busty. The back of the dress pulled so tightly from armpit to armpit that it was almost painful. The top of the back of the bodice was so loose that it gapped significantly. If I could have tailored it, I could have put two darts in and cut off about 2-3 inches of fabric: that's how large the gap was! The neckline was so deeply cut that had there been more than close friends at the wedding, I would have been mortified with the amount of cleavage. The bodice was also so fitted in the front that my chest was smushed down. I'm not sure who this dress is designed for, but it isn't a curvy woman with an hour-glass figure.

Not my favorite but works!
Fit was true to size. Just a little poofy and bubble like front and back below the waist. Easy to accessorize and can dress it up or down as well.

Beautiful color
I rented this dress for a wedding 5 months post twins. I ordered my "what I thought I wore" size, which was a little snug around the chest, but the dress is very forgiving. My only issue was, the dress was a little low cut for a bigger chest. If I had the correct size on, I'm sure it would have been fine. The color was beautiful and the fabric was great quality. Some reviews said the dress ran big, but I'm a bigger girl and I thought, if anything it was true to size.

It was a little tight in the chest but thankfully not too tight for me. Otherwise loved the color, length and the pockets!

Runs large in the top/back
I was unable to wear this dress because it runs large in the top back area. I loved the dress and that it had pockets. It would be really cute if it fit well. For reference, I'm 5'2, 120 pounds, 32C and carry my weight in my thighs. I'm not terribly petite on top and can usually wear a size 0 or 2. I'm not sure why this dress fit so weird.

Loved this dress! Got compliments all night!
This dress was great. I wear a 0 and went with the 2 because the 0 was unavailable. It was definitely a bit big in the chest and back area but it worked out well. I loved it and didn't want to send it back! The color is so bright and the dress is beautiful.

Beautiful color!
Loved the fit and color of this dress! The pockets were AMAZING as well. The only downside to the dress is the back gapes at the top. It was ok for me since I have longer hair, but shorter length hair may have fallen into the back if worn down. Otherwise, this dress was perfect for a beautiful wedding in the mountains!

Ran large, but I have a challenge finding clothes that fit in the bust so I was fine with it. Very comfortable and was able to dance in it with out issue. Got lots of compliments.

Perfect for belly bulge
I actually chose this dress first and ended up wearing my backup style. It was a hard choice to make because this dress was just breathtaking! And it is perfect for the extra mommy fat I'm still carrying around after recently having a baby. The blue is so rich and fabric feels really luxe. Will definitely rent for another affair. The only reason I didn't choose this dress is because the backup dress was a similar style and fit slight my better in the bust.

Not a perfect fit, but still loved this dress for the color and style, perfect for my bachelorette!
The shade of blue is amazing and the style is gorgeous, plus the fabric just feels super high quality. I added this dress to an existing order, so only got one size. I normally wear an 8, 10 or 12 in dresses, depending on the designer and style. Based on the reviews I went with a 12 to be on the safe side. It was big in the top, and the full skirt was very forgiving in the waist/hips, so I definitely could have gone with a 10. But it still looked great and I got lots of compliments. The length was great, right above my knees since I'm 5'2", but careful when you bend down/over, it gets real short, real fast! ;) The style was very me, so with that on top of the fit, it was really comfortable to wear all night. Once upon a time the dress did have the little snaps to hold bra straps in place, but both on my dress were broken, so I wore a strapless bra, otherwise straps would have been showing anytime I moved. Overall, I would totally get this dress again in the next size down. Lots you can do for styling, I chose a big multi-strand pearl necklace, and a boa, because that's what you do at your bachelorette weekend, right? Apologies for the mediocre photo, I forgot to get a full length one! :)

Great dress!
Overall the dress fit very well. It's a great color and fun to wear with the pockets. Overall I would definitely rent again and it's the perfect attire for a wedding. I did have a problem with the back gaping at the top of my neck. Once I used fashion tape it was perfect the whole night. Great dress!

So many compliments. It has pockets!
Fit true to size if not just a little loose. I have a more athletic body so it was a nice fit that gave a little curve to my hips. Bra strap holders so I wore my favorite bra. Elegant neckline. Could dress up or down.

Great engagement photo dress!
I love this quintessential Kate Spade dress! The color is so vibrant on camera, and the material feels thick and substantial. If your ribcage area is your smallest part, I highly recommend this dress. I rented this dress to hide my hips and I felt it ran true to size.

Perfect for summer wedding!
I loved the color of the dress! It was perfect for a summer (more formal) wedding. The fit was true to size. The only con of the dress was it had a lot of fabric at the waistline. When I say down it bunched up a lot. Other then that, it was perfect!

Great color for a blonde. Beautiful fabric. Comfortable.
Great dress, fit was right now (I'm a size six and it fit perfect). I loved the cut; however, one of the bra stays was broken, so that caused some aggravation. Didn't realize it until it was too late, and didn't back a strapless. Other than that, enjoyed the dress.

You'll be the life of the party !!
I can't decide if my favorite thing about this is the bright cobalt color, the fantastic fabric which was just a little shiny and held its shape perfectly or the pockets. The neckline was so flattering and the lingerie straps were perfect for hiding a regular bra. The length hit above the knee enough to show some leg but not enough to compromise any bending or sitting. I'm just crazy about it. Definitely want to rent again.

Not for me!
I loved this dress on the site and really wanted to wear it, but I was very disappointed when I tried it on. It was way too tight in the bust and way too big across my back - to the point where the fabric bunched up in a very awkward way unless I stood with my shoulders rounded. Luckily, I ordered a second dress that ended up working great. I think this dress only works for certain body types, and it just did not work for me :(

Not for pear shaped or petite ladies!
This just looked terrible. I had high hopes despite other reviews cautioning about the "bubble" look, but this dress was very unflattering. My husband said it ruined my best asset. The size 2 fit (once I got the broken zipper to actually zip up) but the bubble effect was not for me. Also the straps as other reviewers have said are very loose. I immediately sent this back for a full credit.

Loved the dress!
Wore this for a wedding - the blue was a really unique bright shade of blue (the picture doesn't do it justice) and I got compliments all night. It was very flattering - totally covers an armpit fat if you're worried about that at all, and was also super comfortable. Plus, it has pockets! Would totally rent it again.

Gorgeous color and fabric
I wore this to a spring wedding in California. The color and fabric were so beautiful, and the fit was glamorous and modern without being over-the-top. The bottom definitely has a cupcake kind of silhouette, which is forgiving for ladies like me with curves, but also might be too poofy for some people. (I liked the poof, it added drama.) The dress could be work with a regular bra, but I had to wear strapless because the hook/snaps that keep the bra straps under the dress sleeves were broken. Overall, I loved this dress and am already considering renting it again for a wedding in June.

Beautiful color and incredibly comfy!
The color of this dress is beautiful! It was exactly what I was looking for, as I wore it to a Democratic Committee fundraising event. The fabric is high quality material and it feels sturdy and well-constructed. The top was a little big on me and gaped open at the back of the neck (thankfully my hair covered it). The straps have snaps on the inside that allow you to hook them to your bra strap so they stay in place (yes, you can wear a normal bra with this dress!). That helped with the gaping and kept me from having to constantly readjust, since the straps were a little big on me. The skirt poufs out from the waistline a little more than you can see in the picture, so just be aware of that. Being 5'1", I was a little worried about the length being too long, but it was just right. Overall, I felt that this dress ran a little big compared to other Kate Spade skirts and dresses I've worn. I ordered a 4 (my normal size) and a 6 for backup, but honestly think I could have worn a 2. I was very pleased with this order and would recommend this style for any cocktail party, semi-formal event, or wedding!

Great intense color and dress has good structure to it
For a small bust, it gaped a little in the back. Fit a little large on me. Probably should have ordered the zero.

Extremely flattering for pear shapes like me! Wore this to a charity event with a "cocktail attire" dress code, but the dress is extremely versatile and could easily be worn at a formal event or even to a fancy daytime event like a graduation. Vibrant color and quality fabric. Love Kate Spade!!!

THIS DRESS!! Perfect color, perfect fit!
I received SO many compliments on this dress at a party where there were sequin dresses galore!! The top slightly gaped in the back but not enough to make me love it any less! I'm already trying to find it online to buy! It's the perfect dress for almost any occasion because it can be dressed up or down and it's both flattering and conservative! I added a gold metal belt which was a perfect addition to match my accessories! Also this color is so gorgeous..... just an incredible dress all around! Did I mention it has pockets????? <3

I loved wearing this dress! The color is beautiful and it's very comfortable.
The Pros: The color was beautiful, the size and fit was great and it was very comfortable. It has pockets, which I love. I also didn't have to wear a bra with it or any special underwear, which was nice. The Cons: I have a small chest, so it fit perfect in the bust area, however, I would be careful if you have a larger chest...in that case, you might have to go up a size, not sure. Also, the poof in the skirt can be a little too poofy - it's not necessarily the most flattering if you are shorter (like me). However, I didn't really care and I loved the dress anyway! The poof was what made it so comfortable and how I was able to avoid wearing spanx or any kind of controlling underwear. I would highly recommend this dress!
