Perfect Valentine's Day dress for a VD dance at a museum
Pros- Color is a pinkish red. Great jewel color-which is said to be better than a plain black dress. Very Kate Spade-don't know the exact way to say that. Will not wrinkle under any circumstances. Great dance dress Warmer that it looks. It was very cold that night. Cons- Not enough bust room for me-you can see I had uniboob because they didn't have anywhere to go. But I'm very busty, DDD or G. Not a dress I would sit in for a long time. It's just not made for it.

Amazing customer service by Stylist Kristen!
This dress was a perfect fit for Northeast Styleweek. The fit and flare of the bottom have it a girly feel while the color made it pop in a sea of dark colors. Chest is tight but wearable, will flatten out a bigger bustline. Perfect dress for any event!

I Almost Pippa'd My Sister
I got this dress for my sister's tea party bridal shower, for which this dress was suited perfectly for the part. I felt great and almost convinced my mom to wear the size up-- we have different body types and fit us differently, but we both looked great in it! It did get a little tight after I ate, but not uncomfortably.

I absolutely loved this stunning material and color.
I had tried on the 6 in the store and it didn't fit so I knew I would need an 8 but out of fear that my E34 chest might not fit I ordered the 10 as a back up and thank goodness! If you're busty - go for the bigger size/get two options! Because of that the waist was a little loose which I'm now noticing in pics which is disappointing. Beautiful dress and would recommend considering it for a black tie event.

Love, love love this dress!
I originally ordered the 6 and 8. But both were really big in the chest and waist. RTR sent the 4 overnight and it fit perfect. I was afraid the dress was a bit too "costume-y" but It was perfect for the event. It was a gala that was "black tie optional" which meant I didn't know if most people would be in long gowns or short, cocktail dresses. This dress fit perfectly in the middle. I received SO many compliments because it was a pop of beautiful color and style in a sea of sequins and lace. It is extremely flattering if you have a waist you want to showcase. The top was fine for me. I am a 34 A-B and I wore a push-up bra and fit in the size 4 just fine. It was February so I was worried that the dress would be too "summery" but the fabric is a really nice, thick material that doesn't wrinkle at all. The dress looked as good at the end of the night as it did at the beginning.

SO MANY COMPLIMENTS! A little tight but it made it really flattering! Pockets were a lifesaver! Love
I tried it on with my bra and it was really tight so I took the bra off and it was PERFECT I wasn't worried about no bra because the material is really thick! The pockets helped me carry everything I needed! I love being classy and this dress was a lot longer than all my friends dresses except my friend in the picture lol! So many compliments all night long! Looks really good with tan skin!

Beautiful Color
Dress fits waits, runs pretty much to size, the pockets give the dress great detail. The color isn't as dark, more of a magenta than red according to picutre. The dress is full.....

Adorable color and classic style
I really liked this dress. I rented it for my boyfriend's business school formal in April. The color is much pinker than it looks on the model, which I loved. The fit is really cute, tight at the waist and a fun flared out skirt. Also pockets! It was a little boxy/big in the bust, but I expected that because I'm smaller up top. I wore silver jewelry but the color could go with gold just as well.

A great piece suited for pear shaped bodies
Got many a compliment for choosing this one. Fabric is a little bit stiffer than I imagined it to be from the photos on the site. Bonus points for the hidden deep pockets where you can hide the essentials - mobile phone, lipstick, small wallet

quote from the photographer at our event:"You get like a million style points for that outfit!"
The color and fit are gorgeous. Really a standout dress. Came nicely starched and pretty much ready to go ! Would definitely rent this again. Didn't mention this above but my fiancé and I got a private photo session with the photographer at the end of the event (I think because he loved the dress so much! ) bonus !!

Didn't want to upstage the bride or her party but needed something really fun for a formal wedding.
People wouldn't stop talking about this dress! It was fun, colorful and dead on for a really classy wedding. The dress fits a bit oddly; in that it's big in the bust and waist while very very snug across the back. I got both the size 2 and 4 and couldn't zip up the 2, not even half way. The 4 was almost big, but I went with it and was glad I did. With the addition of a Badgley Mishka necklace and gold handbag also from RTR it looked absolutely awesome and was totally classic.

The dress was a perfect fit and super comfortable!
I usually have a hard time finding dresses because I am small on top. This dress fit perfectly. I'm a little bit on the shorter size, so it came down to my knees. I got compliments on it all night long. It is definitely a good fit for petite frames. It was very comfortable too and the material didn't wrinkle so I didn't have to worry about packing it.

Bold color & a beautiful dress!
This dress is a show stopper. I got a ton of compliments throughout the night! Worn to an evening wedding, and it looked great next to my wife's dress blues. I loved the pearls that the model wore, so I rented those as well - totally worth it! Pros: pockets, super fun to dance in, great style. Cons: very thick material, so it can get HOT. Tight in the chest/rib area so it runs a smidge small.

Got a ton of compliments but not made for anyone above a b cup.
The dress was beautiful and I got a ton of compliments; but this dress is NOT made for anything above a B-cup - contrary to the fit guide that says its it would work well for A-B-C cups. If you are bigger chested, I would suggest getting a size up for your first fit and 2 sizes up for the additional for.

I wore this to my Junior Prom and I got so many compliments! It was perfect for dancing!
I am 4'8" and on the model the dress is above the knee, but it hit mid-calf on me! I liked that it was a midi dress because it was different and cooler than I expected. I tried this dress on at the actual Kate Spade store and that was very helpful when it came to ordering the dress. I have quite a large bust and the dress wasn't tight or have those weird lines in between my boobs. Overall, a wonderful dress and that was comfortable and beautiful.

The dress fit perfectly, and was very comfortable and flattering. I think it really needs a bold necklace to look polished, but it's a lovely dress, expensive-looking, and easy to dance in!

Danced all night!
The fit was perfect. I did have to use some fashion tape on my bra because it showed just slightly when I raised my arms. I received tons of compliments all night on the dress and the necklace (also an RTR rental). Comfortable. A little warm because of the lining, but for an evening event, was perfect. And the best part? The pockets! Will definitely consider rerenting this specific dress again. To be clear, I'm a 36DD, 145 lbs. And usually wear a size 10 dress.

Perfect dress for a wedding
This dress was wonderful. I might have worn the size 10 if it was available, but the fit makes it very forgiving in the waist/hips so it was fine. I got several compliments about the dress at the event - even from those I did not know. It was nice to have a colorful dress rather than my typical black.

So many compliments!
This dress is amazing. I've never received so many compliments. I wore it to a wedding at a vineyard at sunset and it was perfect for the event. It does run small up top but I'm a small C cup and it wasn't an issue. Any larger and I would have gone a size up and it would have worked. The color is also more of a pink, the picture makes it look red.

Color, style and fabric was just AMAZING!
You know how you feel ladies when you're all dressed up underneath then the time comes when you put on the dress.....so chic, elegant and beautiful. People complimented me all evening. I'm a true size 6 and smaller busted. I probably could have order 4 instead of a 6 since it is not fitted around the hips. I also rented the necklace as shown......PERFECT!

Loved this dress. I wore it to a wedding and received a ton of compliments
The dress fit great. It was so fun to wear. I especially loved the pockets. My only complaint was that it looked like a more red color on the model but wasn't disappointed because I love the color pink, just wasn't what I expected.

It's very tight in the chest area. I squeezed into my 2 but after dinner, was very uncomfortable. The material is a bit stiff and not giving at all.

Dress was photographed for the NY Times, not too shabby!
Wore this for the 2015 NYC Easter Parade and felt like the belle of the ball. Dress photographs extremely well and is comfortable to wear all day. Loved the fit, loved the pockets, loved the fit & flare shape. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary in a show stopping color, this is the dress for you!

A back up dress...
The day before I was to receive the dress (not this one) and accessories I had ordered, I received a friendly email from an RTR stylist letting me know that my dress would not be available in one of the sizes I had requested. She then asked me to pick five of my favorite dresses and she would send me one as a back up in two different sizes. Luckily, I fit into the original dress I had ordered in the size that was sent. This beautiful Kate Spade was my back up. Had I worn it, I would have worn the 6. It was a little snug around the ribs, but not too much. It looks like it would have been a fun dancing dress! Perhaps I would have worn it had I had the accessories to compliment it.

Pretty in pink
Based on previous reviews, I ordered my back up I the size up (10), due to the dress being narrow up top. The larger sized helped and wasn't overly large in the waist. Like previous renters, the dress is PINK-like Barbie hot pink! I loved the color and styled it similar to the model with a J.Crew pearl cluster necklace. This Kate Spade is something I'd love to have in my closet!

This dress is comfortable, gorgeous color, and tons of fun to wear!
I rented a 4 and a 6 and didn't need to try on the 6-4 fit perfectly! The dress is very comfortable for anyone with wider hips/bottom because the flare starts in the midsection. The poof makes it so fun! I wore a bra but you do not necessarily have to (built in boning and thick material). The color is definitely more hot pink-which I loved-and to dress it up you just need a statement necklace. It has pockets, great for dancing, and I got a lot of compliments! Would definitely recommend and would for sure wear again!

Perfect dress for a southern wedding:)
The dress definitely does not have any stretch-- so I would recommend sizing up for your back up size. I am very small busted and the chest area was very tight on me ( although I also have some back muscle so a smaller frame might have fit more comfortably). Overall the dress looked great and had pockets which I loved. The length was to my knees, I am fairly tall so may give a midi length look on shorter gals. I paired it with the big pearl necklace they showed in the picture but I am sure it would go great with any statement necklace.

Beautiful dress, super efficient service.
This dress is beyond beautiful, it was perfect for the Labor Day weekend wedding that I attended.The material is very structured and sturdy, and kinda has a jewel tone sheen to it. I ended up wearing the size zero, but it is a wee bit tight in the rib area. The size 2 looked a little worn, so it may be time to retire that particular dress. Also, 3 out of the 6 ladies in my picture are also wearing RTR :-)

Talk about figure flattering dress. Would even consider buying this! I got so many compliments. Beautiful bright raspberry color. The only negative was that the dress had wear to it. I had obviously been worn and dry cleaned many times. The gold zipper was losing its plating.
