I've rented several dresses from RTR (and will continue to do so) and this was by far my favorite! Adorable, comfortable, and perfect for our engagement photos! I wish I could have worn it longer!

Thank God for a 2nd dress!
The zipper broke on the size 4 which fit like a glove...they Day of the wedding. The size 6 was a little big but I had no on there option since the wedding was out of town. I still received a lot of complements! It's a fun, comfortable dress with pockets! The white is more of an ivory and not too much for a wedding.

My cousin is a married man!
So the zipper on this thing sucks. It's fine until you get it up to the waist, then the track kind of bows out and its hard to zip, but with some assistance I got it on. I used fashion tape on the sides since its basically backless. I got so many compliments about how cute the dress was. Simple, classy and shows just enough skin.

You will receive so many compliments in this dress!
This is a very flattering cut, and is a very pretty combo of sexy and cute. Mine was kind of big on me, and it was a bit long since I'm short, but the back of the dress made up for it! I got more compliments on this dress than any other I've ever worn!

Loved this dress!
This dress was great. I received so many compliments and had so much fun wearing it. I did not have any trouble with the zippers or clasps. The skirt is fuller than expected - and cream colored. I was worried about it being too short, but that was not an issue. The only con was that it did not lay as flat as I would have liked against the sides of my chest. The pockets were perfect!

Fun night of dancing in NY!
This is a beautiful dress and I felt super cute wearing it to a NY wedding this past weekend. The dress is high quality and the fabric is gorgeous. However, the dress fit, but just for me. I wound up having to go with the size 2 because the 4 was gapping in the chest/side boob area for me (see photos). I had a similar issue with the 2, but it was better. So just a warning to petite but bigger chested ladies out there (I'm a 30E) - although there is room in the chest area to accommodate your bust, it will probably have a side boob gap area, and the clasp in the back pulled on my neck by the end of the night.

All the Compliments!
I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner, I'm very small chested so it was a little large on top but everywhere else fit great! I got so many compliments on the back of the dress! It was a hot night in Texas and the AC could not keep up with the amount of people so I'm glad the dress was open to keep me cool and thick enough not to show sweat!

Everyone loved the Bow!
I got alot of compliments on this dress! It is very cute and great for a summer wedding. Had a really tough time the zipper up and it initially took three people to get it up the day it came. I read some of the reviews and found a helpful entry that made it alot easier. It was alittle tight in the torso area but it wasn't a big deal!

The back is beyond gorgeous
This dress is beautiful! The back details are beyond gorgeous! It is a heavier fabric and not a true white as mentioned in other reviews, but that didn't bother me. I wore it for my bridal shower on a gorgeous summer day. Pros: the back! Cons: big in the chest (and I have big boobs), zipper was hard to get up. Also mine had a spot on the front and I had a hard time getting it out. Other than that, I LOVED this dress!!!!!

2nd Best Dressed to the Bride
This is hands down my favorite rental so far. The front is so classic and the big bow on the back is just absolutely adorable. An extremely flattering cut at every angle. And I received SO MANY compliments. My favorite was from a close guy friend of mine who said next to the bride I was the best dressed at the wedding. And no, he wasn't hitting on me as he said in front of my husband. I would say that it ran a little big as I am typically a 2 but did not have any issue with my free backup size. Only complaint would be the zipper was a little stubborn. But seriously you have to try this dress, you won't be disappointed!

Cute dress
The dress was very cute. The first dress was way too big and I had to go to the Rent the Runway store to pick something up and this one worked. The dress does gap in the chest region if you have a larger chest. I was able to get it to work though and I got tons of compliments.

This dress was perfect for a fancy dinner in New Orleans!
The dress runs small in the waist but big in the chest. I am a 38D and I fit just right into the dress. So smaller chested people might need to be ready with some tape because otherwise it would have been side boob city! The back is adorable got lots of compliments. It's not too short (but I'm 5"5). The ZIPPER though. It sucks. I thought the dress was too small because of the zipper but once I got it zipped it had plenty of room.

The perfect dress for a grown-up bow lover!
I really liked the way this dress fit and looked. It was flattering, comfortable, and feminine. I got tons of compliments! I have short legs and a small waist, and this dressed emphasized my waist, and made my legs look longer. Fair warning: it is a bit short, and would likely be very short on someone with long legs. My only gripe was that the zipper and clasps were a bit frustrating. The clasp to seal the neck portion of the dress was falling apart, and ended up breaking by the end of the night. Thank goodness there were safety pins in the bathroom at the event! The zipper was also incredibly difficult to zip. While I had extra room in the dress, I still had to struggle to get the zipper up.

Perfect for my rehearsal dinner!
This dress was so fun for my rehearsal dinner. The back is fantastic and even though it's super open, the front is thick and structured enough that I didn't wear a bra and didn't have to worry about it. Also, pockets.

Great back. Very comfortable.
Fit great. Comfortable silhouette. I didn't need to wear a bra which was wonderful. It was hard to zip and the back clasp randomly came undone a couple of times. The bow on the back also was a little limp on one side. The back was adorable and the front was classic. My only complaint was that it wasn't in perfect condition.

Great design!
I love how the dress was so chic and different from anything I own! The side zipper though was very challenging; there were a couple of teeth missing right at the waist and the size 4 did not want to go up the track. It probably took 30 mins to get me into the dress, but once the zipper was up I felt fabulous. My husband surprised me with ballet tickets, and it was perfect for that event. Got a compliment from a complete stranger in the lobby, which always affirms your sartorial choice :-D I did not wear a bra.

Perfect for a formal event/black tie/cocktail
I have a wider rib cage so it did fit a little snug around the waist line. I received so many compliments and would rent this again! Only fall back is that the zipper is a pain in the butt!

Never received so many compliments in a night. Amazing detail in the back. Snug in waist- the zipper hits at rib cage. Size up. I want to purchase!

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!

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.

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.

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.
