Incredible graduation dress!
I LOVED this dress! It is perfect for any formal event, and I loved it for my graduation ceremony. The bow in the back is so cute, and it also has pockets :) it was cozy, it fit my bust well (32C), and it didn't feel too short. This is my favorite RTR dress yet!

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!

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.

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.

I rented this dress for my engagement photos and it was perfect!
I usually wear a 6 or an 8 and I went with the 6 even though it was a little snug in the waist. The zipper can be difficult to zip because the fabric is really thick so you may need a buddy. The other comments about not being able to wear a bra are true, but the fabric was thick enough that I didn't need one. Overall I absolutely loved this dress and would order it again!

My Audrey Hepburn moment
I wore this for a fire department installation dinner and it was such a hit. You can never go wrong with kate spade. One of my friends even told me I looked like Audrey Hepburn which is what I was going for! The shoulders were a little big so I had to take them up a bit. This dress was so comfortable and airy that I wasn't hot after being on the dance floor all night. Also, POCKETS. I kept my phone in one of the pockets the whole night and it was so convenient. With all the compliments and the added amenities I would 100% rent this again.

The skirt is a bit full but the adorable back makes up for it! Loved the dress - lots of compliments all night. Fits true to size and no problem with the zipper.

This was lovely for my bridal shower. Pockets were great for use!
Was disappointed with the dress because it had a stain on it. It looked like it had been treated and you could see the outline of the mark on the skirt, but I don't think anyone else noticed it. The bust area was big on me, so I would suggest double sided tape for security and a backless bra. The dress won many compliments. Runs very short (as pictured.)

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!

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.

Business in the front, party in the back
I love dresses that nip in the waist, and this was a great version. The fabric is soft and sturdy, didn't need to wear a bra. I love how exposed the back is but it's super classy and comfortable. I was also worried about potential muffin topping, but somehow the cut of the dress eliminated it. The length was great on me since I'm a lot shorter than the model. I thought the front was going to be too boring, but it was actually super flattering since I have broad shoulders, and it was a great backdrop for a statement necklace. Would definitely rent again.

I didn't get to wear the dress.
I rented this dress to wear for a party. I ordered the size 6 and a size 8 as a back up. I'm a size 36 C in bra size and the size 6 fit way too loose from the chest area so I didn't even bother trying on the back up dress. It's a lovely dress unfortunately it wasn't the dress for me.

Kate Spade Classic
When my initial dress didn't work out, I was happy to find comfort in Kate Spade, as always. The back of this dress is SO CUTE and wish I had taken more pictures of it. This dress was so comfortable for the entire night and such great quality - you can just never go wrong with Kate Spade.

Fun dress, a bit short
I am a bit on the taller size- 5'7, but found the dress to run really short. I loved the back of the dress and everything fit well other than the length. It could use about two more inches to let you dance the night away worry free.

Adorable + Classy = Perfect Dress
I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner and received SO many compliments. I felt completely comfortable and confident in this dress. It was a classy look, but fun enough for our brew-pub style rehearsal dinner. I absolutely adored the back of the dress- especially the bow! It was a little chilly that night, so I wore black tights and mini heel booties. Topped it all off with a long, antique gold necklace, and the look was complete! You cannot go wrong with this dress- it was everything!

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.

Hands down my favorite rental since 2010!
I have never received so many compliments on a dress! My husband was very impressed with how many women were coming up to me to comment on the dress. I wore it to a Hill Country wedding in Texas (outside of Austin). I'm 5'3" and 120 lbs, 36 AA. Zipper was tough, but its do able. The fit was perfect, if I owned it I would have taken the shoulder straps in 1/2". My lack of chest makes tops loose on me, but nothing noticeable.

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.

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!

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!

I usually change between an 8 and 10 but the 8 fit like a glove. Super comfortable, laid nicely and looked great.

Unique and very classy dress. I felt like a princess. It is a very dark Navy Blue for the top.
I was worried about a bra but I did not end up needing one with the dress (I'm a 32D). HARD to zip up!! After a brief momentary crisis I realized the zipper was simply hard to zip and it was not related to the dress not fitting appropriately. I ordered a size 2 and size 4. The size 2 had a shorter torso (I am 5'8) and I preferred the size 4 length but the size 4 was too large in the bust.

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!

Stylist Review!
Perfect dress for any type of event! Dress is so comfortable waist down as there is a lot of room! The top is a little top so it's best to size up for your back up size. The back of the dress is absolutely amazing and would look good on any body type!

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.

So Adorable!
This dress was adorable in real life, and I wish I could have worn it - unfortunately the bust was a little too big on me (I'm a 34B, and it probably would have fit a C) but the waist fit perfectly! The fabric is beautiful and it can be dressed up or down - great to wear a blazer over at work and then wear without for drinks after work!

Endless compliments!
I wore this dress to a charity event at an art museum with a black and white theme. The dress was perfect for the theme, comfortable, and had pockets- not to mention I received compliments all night long! I really liked that it had nice structure from the thick fabric that helps give the skirt an adorable flounce. My only grievance about the dress is the zipper, it was very tough to zip where the seams are. At first I thought it was maybe too small, but it was not the fit it was getting the zipper up over the thick fabric. I definitely recommend renting this dress, just be ready for a bit of perseverance when zipping!

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!

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.

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.

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.

Beautiful, classy dress with a fun back
I loved this dress - rented for a New Years Eve party. The fabric is high quality and thick. The top fits pretty true to size and the skirt has a fun flair, but it's too full. The best part of this dress is definitely the open back and bow! My only complain is the zipper was really tough - I couldn't zip fully by myself.

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

Beautiful dress for a black tie affair!
I ordered the size 8 as well as a size 6 for backup, and could barely fit the size 8 (I can never figure out KS sizing). As others have noted, the zipper was troublesome but once I finally was able to zip it after about 20 minutes of trying, it fit well, and I added tape to the sides just to make sure they stayed put, but the coverage was perfect. As someone who is almost 6' tall, the length was on the short side, but worn with tights and heels and with the A-line cut of the skirt, it was the perfect party length. I received compliments all night on the dress and would definitely order it again, but wish it were easier to get into!
