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!

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!

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.

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.

Stunning! That was the word I heard all night! I felt like royalty in this dress

Fit was perfect. It really accentuates your waist. The color is vibrant and perfect shade of hot pink. I loved the pockets!

Great dress but was tight at the bust, I'm also a 34ddd. Got so many compliments on the dress

Tight at the bust if you have a large chest.

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.

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.

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!

Great Color!!

Awesome dress for a wedding. Easy to use. A little tight in the chest and I'm probably average (34C) - so if you have a D or larger I would size up for your second option. More conservative style, so good for a family wedding.

Felt like a million bucks! The dress was a show stopper. Tons of compliments :)

The fit was true to size. A little snug in the bust I'm a 36 C, didn't have to wear a bra. Hugged my waist, it looked great and the pockets were clutch. I wore to a great Gatsby New Year's Eve party. Would definitely use RTR again. It was my first experience using the service and it was absolutely perfect from beginning to end!!

I'm a d cup and it was just barely a fit; smooshed chest. But it slimmed me so I didn't mind.

Classic and many compliments!

I couldn't figure out the color of this dress. In some pictures it was hot pink, in some it looked a shiny red. It is definitely pink in person, so not sure why it looks red on RTR. However, the dress was beautiful, comfortable, easy to dance in, and I received many compliments! Would definitely rent again, but not for a red dress as that it what I was expecting!

Felt beautiful and had so much fun!

I loved this dress. I'm short so it hit below the knee which I thought was awkward at first but actually really liked the way the dress looked and felt throughout the evening. I have wide ribs so I needed to go up a size but the fit generally felt true to size. Great dress. Really loved it.

Great color and style for a black tie optional event.

I ordered the 2 and 4. They fit about the same on me but I was more comfortable in the 4. (It had just a little more room in the bust). The dress showed a little bit of wear around the edges. The color is not red at all; it's hot pink.

Beautiful dress, perfect fit, and great color!

Material is heavier than it looks, but has a great shape (especially in skirt). Chest was snug, but not uncomfortably so, you could probably get away with not wearing a bra, but straps definitely won't show with the cut. The color is more pink than it appears in RTR photos, where it looks like a cherry red. The higher waist and flared skirt are very forgiving for hips and thighs, perfect for an hourglass shape. I did notice that the fabric seems to pill pretty easily around the hem and pockets, even are only about 6 hours of wearing. Would definitely rent this dress again for a party, wedding or date night!

Beautiful color! I received lots of compliments. Love the hidden pockets and the full skirt.

Size 8 was too small in the bodice and the 10 was a little too big. I wore the 10 and it worked out fine. I like the full skirt because I didn't feel like I had to suck in all night. The hidden pockets were great for lipstick and phone. Very pretty dress.

The color and cut made me feel awesome!

All of the other reviews are right about the color; it is hot pink. But, it's a warm color and looks great. The cut is great for hiding a midsection because it's cut a little higher than many others and the pleat in the front is a good disguise as well. The fabric felt great but was a bit hot for a July wedding. I loved the pockets too! Kate Spade has never steered me wrong.

Beautiful and tight in the right spots

I loved the look of this dress. I had ordered the 4 & 6. Probably should have gotten the 6 & 8 in hindsight, but the 8 may have been too big. I am large chested so sometimes it is tough to find the right fit on both top and bottom. Regardless, it was a beautiful dress and easy to accessorize.

The timely arrival and presentation.

I wore this dress to my tea party bridal shower. It was the perfect fit and I got lots of compliments. The dress does a good job of hiding problem areas, but watch your angles when taking pictures. Some side views made me look so unshapely. This was my second time using RTR and I would use it again and again.

Classic and Elegant

The color on this dress is just a gorgeous shade of pink. I found the fit to be a little tight in the chest but true to size everywhere else. I sized up bc of the chest and I thought it still looked great. The pockets are a great addition. The flare around the stomach was a perfect cover for post baby belly. I also could wear a normal bra. It really was just a classic and timeless dress and I got compliments all the night long. The bride at the wedding said "love love love" and I agree.

First RTR experience!

This dress is stunning. I rented for a formal wedding over Fourth of July weekend. The material is structured which works well for the hourglass figure. Material may be a tad heavy for the summer, but it wouldn't dissuade me from renting again, as long as you're in the AC! I rented an 8 with 10 as the backup - the 10 was too large up top with a big gap at the arms, so I went with a snug fit on the 8. The dress is a great choice if you have a fuller chest (I'm actually bigger than a 34 D) and a distinct waist. It was great to enjoy the evening without worrying about sucking it in all night! A perfect first experience with RTR!

Brilliant color, amazing dress! I felt beautiful in this dress!

First, the color made the dress. Second, the fabric, although kind of warm, is extremely flattering to any woman's body. Third, how can anyone not love a dress with pockets!?!? I'm 5'2", weigh 135 lbs and wear a 34D. The dress did run small (I'm normally a 6 or 8, and the 8 was tight), especially in the bust, and I ended up going bra-less, but the fabric is thick enough that is was fine (and I never EVER go bra-less). I absolutely loved this dress, but I would recommend ordering the larger of the size you normally wear and getting the size up for your alternate.

Kate Spade themed bridal shower

Wore this dress as a bridesmaid at a Kate Spade themed bridal shower. I have a 36DD chest but besides a little tightness in the ribs and back zipper, it still fit pretty well. Color is beautiful and bright and it has pockets and tabs for your bra straps. Material is more formal than a typically shower dress, but it worked out well with the theme!

Very cute , but it's more of a formal affair dress

I had rented it for a dinner/party but ended up not wearing it because it thought it was a little too much. It's more appropriate for a summer wedding or something
