Great fall dress

I'm a 10/12 but Kate Spade runs big. The medium was perfect. The neckline required a cami. Also- this dress is BLACK not blue as it says in the description.

Great style and fit

Would have fit better into the 6 because the shoulders of the 4 were a bit tight on me. But this was a great quality material, fun print, and overall comfortable for work!

Adorable flowy dress

Definitely loved this dress! Very comfortable and the length is perfect. Being tall I always worry about dresses being too short, this was perfect. (Just be careful of wind!)

Very flattering and a beautiful pattern!

This dress is so flattering and great for a workday that has to transition into drinks or dinner. The pattern is perfect for fall. The detail work at the wrists and waist is very flattering and comfortable, so you look good and feel good during a long work day. I highly recommend!

Runs very large, too much fabric

I wanted to like this dress but it just had too much fabric and was way too big. I don't remember why I sized up - maybe the small was unavailable or maybe other reviewers somehow thought it ran small? Either way, it just felt silly on me and I didn't wear it.

Got so many compliments!

It fit perfectly, and I felt good in it. As a size 12ish with extra in the tummy that's not always the case with dresses. I would rent it again!

Didn't end up wearing

Unfortunately didn't end up wearing because the fit under the armpits was way too tight and made the dress uncomfortable. If I sized up I think I would have worn, the pattern is cute but didn't love it.

Cute but fit off on me

Pretty print, conservative for work, looks good with tights for cooler weather. Comfortable. Can button or unbutton the neck for 2 different looks. Fit was off on me (I wore a small), sleeves fit but the waist sat high and the elastic would creep even further up to under my bust, making it look like a very short maternity dress. Maybe the medium would have been better?

Cute floral dress but nothing special

Size Small fit well especially due to elastic. But the elastic isn't that appealing so I wouldn't rent it again. Also the print isn't that special. Fine for work or casual event

Cute dress!

Love the print and fabric. Nice elastic at sleeves and waist. Falls right at knee. I only gave it 4 stars because the neck is not very good. It's either too high and very constricting when buttoned at neck or very open needing to wear tank underneath. Otherwise would rent gain but probably size Small.

Comfortable and cute for work!

I was a little skeptic as I thought it might look frumpy but it totally wasn't. It fit well and easy to dress up or down. Loved the collar and button detail in front made it extra cute. So comfortable. Wore it with tights and riding boots on a cold day.

Beautiful and flattering

I absolutely loved this dress and am seriously contemplating buying it. It's a super forgiving and flattering fit for plus sized gals and made me feel beautiful. Great for work, everyday, or a dinner/date night out.

Fun and flattering!

I rented this dress for a job interview and it was perfect! I did wear a black tank underneath it since the v is a little low for work, but overall I was really happy with the fit. It was a very forgiving fabric and I felt great wearing it!

Great work dress!

Loved everything about this dress, the colors were bright and cheery, the fabric was soft and comfortable and it fit my curves well without being revealing. Perfect for work, will likely rent this one again.

Cute dress!

I didn't end up wearing. I was between a small and medium and should have gone up to a medium. Arms/chest were a bit constricting but the length was good and work appropriate. It's a cute dress and I would rent again!

Beautiful dress, even better customer service!

I selected this dress as a last-minute replacement after my first three choices weren't going to work for the cold weather that was anticipated. SO. GLAD. I. DID. This dress made me feel like a million bucks! The fabric is lightweight and luxurious, but heavy enough to wear with tights and/or boots in winter weather. The button at the neckline can be secured for a keyhole look, but this was for date night so I left it open. The smocked waist has a LOT of give; I could have sized down but I felt secure with the little bit of extra fabric in the right places. Super happy with RTR's impeccable service, too! My first three dresses just wouldn't work, and I had three new dresses on my doorstep by 10am the next morning.

Very pretty and comfortable

This dress fit me perfectly and wasn't too short (which is a problem I have a lot)! It was so pretty and feminine and I felt great in it. The high neck and keyhole detail on the front gave it a unique look. The dress was perfect for my friend's rehearsal dinner! Highly recommend especially for my tall ladies!

So comfortable!

One of my favorite Kate Spade dresses. Lightweight and comfortable with elastic waist and elastic cuffs. Length is longer, this dress is probably better suited for tall girls. I'm 5'8 and it skims my knees.

Pretty dress but didn't fit me well

Beautiful dress, nice material and cut. I am 5'10" and the waist detail was too short for my body type. Probably would be perfect for someone with a bit shorter torso. Fun dress though!

Cute dress

I really loved the look of this dress but gave it a 4 as the smocking on the waist led to having to adjust the dress frequently. Looked really great on.

Great spring dress

Wore this to the office . Perfect length and loose flows fit so it was comfortable . I left the button up top undone and wore a black tank top underneath since the bottom was lined but the top was not . This dress transitioned well to dinner since it was a beautiful spring day.

Season transition perfection

I wore this to an evening church outdoor service, on a cool breezy evening. Paired with sheer black tights, heels and pearls, this kept me warm, and was appropriate to the occasion. The neckline was very low, so I pinned it to a better-for-me opening. This was a perfect fit and, at 5'3", was knee length, which is what I was looking for. Keep this in mind for fall/winter!

Fun and comfortable spring dress

Great dress for the start of spring! I wore it to a baby shower and nice dinner. Comfortable enough to travel in. The key hole is low cut, so be aware if you have more cleavage. Would rent again.

Perfect date night transition to spring piece!

This dress was very flattering on- loose and flowy on the bottom but the cinched waist shows your shape. The neck and wrist had pretty cinched detailing as well. I wore this for a date night-others had said they wore it to work- however I felt the neckline was a bit low - I wouldn't feel comfy without a cami underneath for a professional setting. Length was just above the knee. Great for spring, love the floral print!

Great dress!

This dress is so flattering. The neckline is great and where it tightens at the waist gives you the perfect shape. The fabric and print are beautiful. I wore this dress twice, once without tights and the next time with tights. Both looks were great. I wish I could buy this dress!

Pretty dress

This dress is really versatile - it's great for work and then a night out. You could also wear it with sandals or tights and boots if it's cooler. It's slightly low cut so a camisole makes it work appropriate.

Cute, but nothing too spectacular

This dress was a great length for work, and the print was cute. I also liked the button closure on the front, but this size was too big for me in the chest area. I wish I would've sized down.

Pretty perfect

Kate Spade has mastered this type of dress. The waist, the sleeves, everything about it makes it just look really good on. Runs large like most Kate Spade so I sized down from XL to L like I usually do with this designer.
