Flattering!
Very flattering. The seam on the side seemed to have an odd bit that I think was supposed to add more flare but almost seemed like a flaw but wasn't so much as to detract from the overall look.

So flattering
I wasn't terribly excited about this rental, but when it arrived I felt completely different. The colors in the dress are brighter than they look in the picture. The cut was flattering to my curvy figure. The only complaint I would have is that it's a little low cut for someone with an ample bust, but a camisole will take care of that. I would definitely rent this again.

Pink & Teal for Christmas!
Thick, lovely fabric with a great neckline (my chest looked great!). Paired with a teal cardigan for a colorful Christmas outfit at the in-laws apartment. Feels like wearing a sweatshirt dress, but looks so much classier. Loved it!

Perfect weight & silhouette
I was worried this would be a heavy weight Knit & hang too much but this was not the case. It was the perfect medium weight Knit and kept its flared shape. The electricity of the flashes of color going down the black base of the fabric was really cool and only accentuated the silhouette. I got an xs and fit like a normal Small which is fine. I feel like that is normal nowadays.

Very comfortable. Loved the fabric. Fit perfectly! Pair with a blazer and perfect for work! Could wear on a date if you are conservative with heels.

Not flattering if you have any tummy
Nice knit, fabric lays well. Pretty colors in the stripes. But the fabric is thick and stretchy, so it feels right. I have a bit of a bulge in the lower tummy, and even with spanx, this dress emphasized that bulge. It was ok with a jacket for work, but won't order again.

Gorgeous knit dress but fits snug
This is a gorgeous knit dress but is snug in the stomach - not forgiving! The colors are great and the knit is sheer luxury. The armholes are a little long so I would have to wear either a black bra or a jacket over the dress.

Great fit! Updated little black dress.
Love this dress! Fit perfectly. The pictures do not do this dress justice. The colors are more vibrant. The V is a bit deep. The materisl is thicker. Better for cooler weather. I would absolutely rent this dress again! Very flattering.

First Communion outfit
My daughter was celebrating her first Communion and I wanted a special dress to fit the occasion. This was the best dress for a warmer day but not hot. I paired it with tights for a cooler morning. The dress lies very flat and is not forgiving for any belly bulge. Still a pretty dress that I would recommend if you're straight and narrow

Stretchy, cute dress
I assumed j needed to size up as I usually do with Kate Spade. I was wrong. The dress was too big around the arms and I should have gone with L. I will probably try it again in a smaller size

Great fit and length for work! Can wear year round!
I'm very busty and the cut was flattering but not inappropriate for work. I'm also very tall and it was a good length.

Awesome work dress, great fit!
I rented this with my unlimited membership. I usually have trouble with fit and flare dresses because I have a long torso (so the waist of the dress usually lies at my rib cage...not as flattering). However, this drop waist looked awesome. The dress is really comfy. It's not as pleated as it looks in the pictures. I'm going to keep it for a while and maybe I'll buy it.

The length is conservative but it's low cut in the front. The colors are fun. Glad I wore it. Wouldn't rent again.

Wore at 20 Weeks pregnant
I wore this dress at 20 weeks pregnant and it was very bump friendly. I liked the dress but it gaped in a weird way on the sides, almost as if the straps were too big. I wouldn't rent again.

Colorful and fun!
The details and bright colors in this dress are even better in person! I wore this dress on Christmas Eve and loved it. It was however, very snug through the tummy area, but fit perfectly everywhere else. Spanx were a must and did help, but I did feel like I was sucking it in all night! I think the next size bigger would have been too big through my chest area. Overall, I was happy with the rental!

Stylist Review
You can definitely size down for this one as it does run a little bigger with stretch. I love the colorful detail! This piece can be styled just about any way that you'd like. It can be worn for work, date night, brunch etc.

The dress was a little big on top, but it was comfortable and felt great!!
The medium was a little big on me in the top. I loved the dress though and got a lot of compliments.

I wore this dress for my mom's 60th birthday party and it was a hit!
I am a curvy girl, so I went with XL, though because it's a stretchy material, it worked, but I could have easily worn it in an L as well. The material is super stretchy and comfy, great for parties & dancing, but it's somewhat heavy as well, so I don't think I'd recommend it for outdoor events in hot months. The fun colors were great for a party atmosphere, and I got tons of compliments all night. I also liked that it was sexy without being over the top.

Comfortable yet professional
I got a large and an x-large and honestly could have worn either. I preferred the length of the x-large which is the only reason I wore it over the large. Nice stretch to it so it is flattering if you size of up or got with your regular size. Easy to dress up or wear to work.

Runs small so order size-up.
I love this dress. I do agree with some of the previous comments that say that the bra shows a bit, but you can use either safety pins or wear a black bra in which case it will show minimally. It does run a bit small - I am normally a Small, but with Kate Spade, I appear to be a Medium. However, once you size up, the stretchy material does not hug so closely so as to accentuate any rolls, and I love the fabric. I like the fact that the dress does not have any zippers - it feels so natural to just wear it without one - and that it runs down to the knees. I sometimes feel a bit self-conscious in some of the RTR dresses, because they're either too short or the details too loud, but not in this one. Love this dress.

Great take on the LBD
I liked this dress. The multicolored vertical lines were slimming and added a nice variation on the classic little black dress. The fabric is high quality - fairly thick so might be a little too hot for midsummer, but fine for this time of year. I wore it with a bright pick cardigan that matched one of the stripes. The neckline might be a smidgen low for some more conservative workplaces, but you could add a black camisole to solve that problem. The dress was just a tiny bit snug through the waist line and across the shoulders. The length was fine for me, right at the knee. If you are tall it might be too short for work.

Great Dress!
This may be one of my favorite kate spade dresses I've rented. The material was stretchy and warm enough for wearing in the fall. There were only two small, completely workable, cons. The V neck was a little low on me. I had to wear it with a scarf for it to be work/family dinner appropriate. Also, the weave of the colorful lines was also a little loose. My rings got caught a couple of times and pulled the fabric. The dress is easy to dressed up or down and since it has so many colors in it- it's easy to find a cardigan or jewelry to match.

Fun Dress!
Very comfortable, can be styled with a cardigan and/or tights and boots. Love the fun candy colors which make the dress fun but still remains work appropriate (a teensy bit low cut but not too bad).

Cute dress.
A bit too long in the waist if you're short-waisted. Very flattering design
