Bow

Really pretty dress. I received a ton of compliments Kate spade signature bow was a big hit. The zipper was a huge pain and we had a hard time zipping it up. I probably wouldn't rent this again because of that. But once I got in the dress it was very beautiful

Compliments galore!

I love this dress, and wore it for my best friend's rehearsal dinner! It is definitely more cream than white, but I wasn't bothered by that. What did make it a little less perfect was the zipper. Where the black meets the cream on the waist of the dress, it is almost impossible to zip whether you're in the dress or not! After a few assisted attempts, we finally got it zipped up and I received so many compliments on the back detail! It was very comfortable, fit well, and has POCKETS! Need I say more?

Perfect bridal shower dress! Obsessed

Definitely want to rent this again but I received tons of compliments!!! So. Flattering and cute. It is difficult to wear a bra though so keep in mind if you are large chested.

Overall great fit, especially to accentuate waist & hide hips/upper thighs. Bow in the back makes this dress a stand out!

Loved this dress

Bubble skirt was the perfect length. Pockets an added bonus in my book. It is more black and ivory than true white which I was pleased with as well. No bra needed. So comfortable and quality. Tons of compliments all night!

Great for Homecoming

We needed an age appropriate dress for our 15yr old for Homecoming. We found out she was nominated for Homecoming court at the last minute. This dress was beautiful on. Great overall fit. We got a size 6 and it fit perfectly!

Great pre-wedding happy hour dress!

I rented this dress for the HH the night before our wedding. The fit was amazing and super comfortable! LOVED the bow on the back and so sorry I don't have a good pic of it! Will just have to rent again... ;-)

Felt like a goddess in this beautiful, fun dress!

This was my first time doing RTR and I'm now obsessed. This dress is ADORABLE and perfect for an upscale affair. I rented it for my engagement party and couldn't have been happier. Tons of compliments all night! Ordered the 2 and the 4 and both were almost identical in fit but chose the 4 because I liked the slightly longer length since I was wearing heels. Wish I could keep this dress forever! Thanks RTR!

Sexy chic

My date wanted to play dress up at a fancy restaurant. This was classy, sexy, and the bow added a little fun and girlyness! Lipgloss, snapchat and IG are never too far away because this dress has deep hidden pockets! My date loved the dress! Tip: wear a black strapless bra where the band can be lowered and hidden, and keep it up with a clear halter strap (the dress goes high enough in the back to conceal it).

Beautiful dress but runs small

Beautiful dress! Unfortunately I couldnt wear it because it runs small. Should probably order one size up but if you have a big breast (I'm a 34 DD), I would suggest 2 sizes up cause there's a hemming right there.

This was perfect for the charity event we attended. The fit was great, but if you are small-chested, it bulges a little bit where the dress cuts.

Classic Kate Spade

I absolutely loved this kate spade dress! I ordered this dress for a formal ball held at my fiancé's work, and I received lots of compliments! The back of the dress is so fun but not too revealing so you don't feel overly exposed. The dress is fitted at your natural waist and was snug but not uncomfortable. I did find that the dress gapped somewhat near the sides of the best area but may not if you are fuller on top. Also to be noted, the skirt color is more of a cream versus white. It is somewhat deceiving in the model picture. Bonus: the dress has pockets! If you are debating, order the dress! It's classy and fun at the same time and you'll be sure to stand out from the crowd. :)

Beautiful, structured dress. Perfect for holiday party!

This dress was exactly as I expected it to be. As other renters have commented, the white/cream bottom is almost a beige but looks great. The dress had plenty of room for wider hips/booty & was roomy on my small chest--nothing a little double sided tape can't fix!

3 wears in 1 week

LOVE this dress. Wore it to the fanciest restaurant in Seattle (Canlis), then to see the Nutcracker at PNB, and again last night to a friend's work holiday party at the Museum of Pop. Easy to dress up or down. Got tons of compliments and felt great in it. The only problem is the side zip. If you have a longer torso (like I do) and a large rib cage (as I do), you'll find that the only way to get the dress on and closed is to zip it up around your waist and then lift the top up and over your breasts. Also be aware that you might show a good amount of side boob. I'm a 34D and triple checked the measurements both on this site and on Kate Spade's website and they should have been a perfect match. Most of my 34D measurement is from muscle so to my athletic friends: I would strongly advise getting a backup size (although the 10 on me would have been too big), or choosing another dress.

The perfect dress

I recently wore this to my company holiday party. This dress was an absolute head turner. Classy and elegant. Simple in front, sexy in the back. I received positive compliments all night long. Fits true to size. I wore this with a Jezebel low back bra. Side zipper was a little tough to get up and down but not a big enough problem to keep from renting. I would love to own this dress. Do not hesitate, you will not be disappointed.

The best New Year Dress EVER!!

This dress got so many compliments at The Champagne Ball party in Portland. I was working as a photographer for the event and the dress was perfect with the pockets it held everything. If you need a dress for any occasion this is the dress for you!!!

Adorably fun

Loved this dress! I got compliments all night. It waa comfortable and fun. Only drawback was the chest puckered out for a scandalous amiunt of side boob if the dress isnt sized well. I usually wear a 10 but I was in a pinch and needed a least minute dress. The only size left was a 12. I am large busted and even eith a size up the dress puckered outward. I would definitely rent this dress again but probably size down from my normal size

Classy dress

I loved this dress! I wore it on NYE and received many compliments. It's class and elegant. You do need sticky boobs for it- I did not wear a bra or sticky boobs and it ran large on my chest.

Classy, elegant, beautiful....

I wish I had a pic of the back but this dress was perfect for an upscale cocktail party we had to attend. The color block was perfect, the length was perfect, the back was perfect and makes the dress flirty but remains elegant. The skirt has pockets which I loved and my shoes were a perfect tie in to the back of the dress. I got lots and lots of complements and was very happy with my choice. The dress ran true to size and fit beautifully. I am 5"7 and wore a size 2 which is normal for me.

Lots of compliments

Fits great. Lots of compliments. Very flattering. Thick material so it kind of "holds" everything in. However, the dresses are not maintained. The first one they sent me the zipper was completely broken. They overnighted me another dress and the zipper was still difficult to zip. In addition, there was a stitch missing from one side of the bow in the back, so one side flopped down the entire time.

Classic and chic!

I loved wearing this dress SO much! Unfortunately, the zipper on the size 6 was stuck so I had to wear the 8, so it was a little big. I could have done with some double sided tape on the sides, but all in all I was comfortable all night and got tons of compliments!

The perfect dress!

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and it was perfect! I thought the bottom half would be more white, but it's more cream colored. I received so many compliments on this dress! The back is beautiful with the bow and it fit really well. I didn't even need to try on my backup size 8 because the 6 was perfect. Loved that it has pockets too.

Classy, unique, compliments all night!

I ordered this dress for the 100 days until graduation dance at my university. It was the perfect dress for the event and everyone raved about it all night! The dress was very flattering and definitely a confidence builder. There isn't much give in the waist while it is rather roomy around your chest. The 6 fit me perfectly, but I'd definitely recommend going a size up rather than a size down for the additional dress! 5 stars and I'd definitely rent this dress again!

Major hit!

This dress was phenomenal and I received endless compliments on it! I felt so gorgeous in it and never wanted to take it off. Overall it does run true to size as I expected to size up a little from normal with Kate Spade. As other reviews have stated it is tight around the rib cage. The 8 would have been perfect with just a tiny bit more room. I decided to go with the 10 so I could feel comfortable dancing and like other reviews have stated, going up a size made the bust a little too big for me. It gaped slightly at the sides but not enough to bother me. Wearing a bra was a no-go but it really wasn't necessary as the material is quite thick. The bottom is cream, not white as it appears in the picture and honestly it made me love it more, it appears softer. I would definitely rent this dress again and have had to tell all my friends where I got it!

Flattering for all shapes! Felt confident & beautiful at my engagement party!

I am small chested and could easily go without a bra. I would recommend having fashion tape on hand to keep the front of the top portion from gapping and showing too much on small busted ladies. I was worried Kate Spade sizes would run very small but I found it to be very true to size. I enjoyed the pockets and the open back detail. I got compliments all night!

LOVE LOVE

Incredible dress. Wore on a chilly evening with black tights and black patent heels. Compliments all night. The bottom is ivory not white. The bow is a show stopper! Fits a bit small (had to size up) and had a tricky zipper. Would love to own this.

Dress runs small in waist

Beautiful fabric and fun. Zipper is a nightmare. The waist fell right on the largest part of my rib cage. But the 10 was too large in the top. So too tight in the waist and too large in the top. But such a cute dress if you could get the right fit.

Academic Excellence Day Celebration

This dress was perfect for my busy day on campus! I wore it for a research poster presentation, outstanding computer science student award, and honors induction ceremonies. It was classy and tasteful! I received numerous complements!! The dress was the perfect length and it was extremely easy to find shoes and jewelry to match. My experience with RTR customer service was incredible! I am looking forward to doing business with them in the future.

Love the pockets and back detail of this dress!

Great dress! Love the fit and comfort of this dress! I'm 5'2" DD bust and typically a size 2 for my dresses. The zipper was hard to zip at first but I repeated zipping it up and down and it became easier! I wore this dress for a Gala event but I think it would be cute for a date or even a cocktail attire event!

Perfect Kentucky Derby dress!

I was really happy that it didn't run too short. I got a lot of compliments on this dress. The only drawback was the way that the top fit. It was way too big. I used double sided tape to try to keep the sideboob scene to a minimum but it still didn't look quite right. If you don't have a very big rib cage I would recommend sizing down.

So Chic!

I receive compliments all night long! The sides puckered more than I would have liked, have I ordered a 4 and a 6, I'm sure the 4 would have taken care of that. But I ordered a 6 and an 8. Overall, I absolutely loved the dress, the fit, and of course- the pockets! Would certainly rent it again.

Still getting compliments weeks later on this beauty!

I rented this dress for my pharmacy school graduation- I got compliments all night and am still getting them weeks later! I have never felt so confident. The back of this dress is gorgeous- you can't wear a bra with a back with this- I used sticky covers from Ulta. If you are smaller chested like I am, dress is a little loose in front, but it wasn't noticeable enough. Like others said, zipper is a little difficult but it WILL go up with some work! Really considering buying this. DON'T pass it up.

I'm in love with this stunning dress!

This dress was so fun to wear! The "white" part of the dress is a cream/champagne color. Thick fabric holds shape perfectly. Reminds me of a tea cup. The bust is roomy and sides gape slightly. Im a 34D and I wore a sticky backless bra that worked perfectly. I typically wear a size 4. Ordered the 4 & 6. The top of the 6 was way too big. Would love to try the 2 to see if the top would fit a bit snugger. The pockets in the skirt were amazing! They held my phone, lipgloss, ID, powder compact & key without anyone knowing it was there. I can't wait to rent this dress again!
