Great Graduation Dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I rented this dress to wear for my graduation from medical school. It ran pretty true to size, but was a bit tight in the bust area. I probably would have gone up a size if I had a bigger chest, but the skirt floats away from the body so it's good for hiding a little extra around the middle! Overall, it was super comfortable and perfect for a spring/summer event since the material is nice and breathable. Looks really classy with not too much effort, and I got a ton of compliments all day long! If I had $400 to spare to buy one, I would definitely make this purchase. Highly recommended!

A classic silhouette with modern color blocking

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was a real hit! The cut is reminiscent of 40s-50s, the fabric more structured to hide all manor of bulges. My regular size fit like a glove with the normal compression/support under garments. I decided to get my hair and make-up done in the glamour style of the 40s and got compliments on the ensemble all night! The waist is lovely and defined, the cut is comfortable, and the pockets were a fun and handy addition.

Classy and Appropriate for a Business Event

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I rented this dress for an awards dinner I attend with my father every year... this dress was PERFECT for the occasion! It was classy and appropriate. The length was so perfect as well... I always get nervous because I am tall and have a 37" inseam so a lot of dresses end up too short on me, but not this one. It fit me just like the model in the picture (length-wise). It was a little tight in the top so if you are on the fence about which size to order I would recommend sizing up because the fabric is not very flexible/stretchy. My only complaint is that the material wrinkled pretty easily. I steamed it after receiving it from RTR.

Made me stand out in a crowd of beautiful, coifed southern women!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress fits pretty true to size. I got the 8 and 10 and I wore the 10 because I knew it would be a warm day. Sizing up gave me extra space. The dress is cotton and was a little wrinkled but I didn't attempt to iron it because of the pleats. It looked fine even with the wrinkles. The bust is tight so if you are blessed, I would choose something with more room up top. Paired it with some patent peep toes and some Kate spade jewels. Wish I could afford to add this dress to my wardrobe but happy I could rent it!

Beautiful dress. Tricky zipper

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was overnighted to me after first dress wouldn't work. The zipper is really tough. I would have worn the 8 but the zipper was so stiff between each panel of fabric that I went to the 12 to be safe. All of the sizes had a major zipper flaw. Other than that it was beautiful!

This dress was incredibly classy and I rented pearls too which were the icing on top of the cake.

I loved this dress! The zipper was VERY hard to get up though. (Not because it didn't fit, but getting over the seam was very hard and took two people to do it!) However, once it was on, I felt like I should've been in the 1950's! It was beautiful!

Loved this dress! Fit perfectly, and extremely comfortable. This is a perfect style for a petite. I am normally a 4P in dresses, so I was concerned that a regular size might be too big. Highly recommend to anyone who is under 5'4"!

Beautiful, fun party dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I felt classy and sassy at the same time. I found the dress to be tight across the chest, but it still zipped up so I was good to go. The dress was a bit shorter than I anticipated because the skirt opens fairly wide, but I still felt completely covered up. Got so many compliments on this dress. Danced the night away. (Also, there are pockets!!) Would definitely rent again!

Fit like a glove- fell in love with this dress and didn't want to return it!. Loved the huge pockets! Received so many compliments! Only negative- it's hard to get on with an up-do since it has a side zipper (zipper was hard to work).

Very cute and timeless

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress is nice, classic but it was a little big on me at the top, and the size 8 would not zip around my ribs. The material gets wrinkled VERY easily too, so unless you have a steamer or iron, it will most definitely be wrinkled. All in all, I was really happy with the rental, but I probably will not rent again. (Zooey Deschanel wears this dress in New Girl btw!)

This dress is so popular another girl had on the SAME dress at the wedding I went to! Loved it! Very timeless and classy! I usually wear a 12 and could've worn that one but the 14 fit fine! The chest wasn't too right at all! And it had pockets! Yet again another SUCCESS from Rent the Runway!

It was classic and elegant

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Wedding
"You are absolutely stunning in that dress!" was all I kept hearing all night. I don't usually wear simple or understated dresses, but this one is defined by the fit. It is classic and looks effortless. Add a pop lip color and you will stand out even in your black and white! The dress was absolutely true to size and is exactly how you see it in the picture. My only caution is that the white stripe across the chest is a magnet for stains so watch out!

Zipping up the bust area was a bit tight, so I went with size 6 (good thing I got a size bigger as my backup). The dress sits really nicely on the shoulders and it's dressy but not too fancy. I wore it to a holiday party. Also it has pockets!!

A great work holiday party with friends!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was a backup dress, my original dress didn't fit and the stylist was super helpful in finding another. The fit of this dress is great, although if you have a bigger chest area, you may need to go up a size. I loved the longer hem. I'm 5'4" (with short legs) and it came to just above my knee. Also, the dress has little clasps inside near the shoulders so that your bra straps don't fall down your arms. A very thoughtful touch. Overall I was very happy with the dress and wish I could have kept it!

This dress is classy! I received compliments on the dress all night.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress runs small - if you have a larger bust, order a size up. I am glad that RTR sent a bigger size. The zipper was stiff, so I needed a friend to help me zip the dress up over the bust area, but once it zipped, WOW! The fabric is a thicker cotton feel, but it looks very classy up close and far away. I received compliments on the dress all night. The dress was great for a semi-formal benefit I attended for work.

Base on other reviews, I ordered a 0 and 2. I should have ordered a 2 and 4. The bust area was very tight, and I am not a busty gal. I thought length was fine for 5'1". Just FYI- I did not wear snow boots the whole night, just to drop off babysitter!

I absolutely loved the dress. It fit perfectly and was definitely true to size. It was a tiny bit longer than I expected, but I still thought the length was perfect. The only problem I had was the side zipper is extremely hard to get up, and you will definitely need someone to help zip it up. Other than that, I loved the dress and it looked awesome on. I can't wait to rent another!

Another great dress from Kate Spade!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this dress to a fundraising event at my son's school and it was perfect! The dress is more on the casual side, which was perfect for this event being in the late morning/early afternoon. I am always very pleased with Kate Spade dress and this is no different. The fit is pretty true to size or maybe on the smaller side. I frequently wear a 00, but the 0 was the only size available and fit great! The dress is made very well. The only negative I have found with her dresses is they need to be pressed- especially to make the pleats stand out, but it is well worth the few dollars to have it done. I was not planning on adding the sweater or tights, but it was an unexpectedly cool day and I think they went well. Would definitely recommend this dress and any Kate Spade dress!

Pockets!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Party
So the worst thing about this dress is its impossible to zip by yourself. The zipper needs at least three hands so I couldn't even try on the sizes until I had someone to help me, much less get dressed for the evening. The dress wasn't tight at all, but the zipper was so sticky and difficult. Once it was on, the fit was really comfortable and flattering.

Loved the fit and flared skirt. Wore to a work event and it was perfect. Lengthy was professional while still girlie. The skirt was very full. I did go up a size due to the bust. I am a DDD so needed some more room. This dress can be worn in the winter or summer. Very comfy fabric.

ordered the 4 and 6. I usually wear a 4 but needed the 6 in this. the 4 was a tad tight in the bust and the 6 gave me more room because of the fullness, it's more forgiving in the hip area because of the flare. great length, adorable dress yet very classy.

Beautiful dress! I received so many compliments!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Wedding
Even though both sizes fit me, I decided to wear the 6 because it gave me a bit more room around the waist and chest. The fabric is a thick cotton so it's extremely comfortable but also looks formal. My only complaint was the size zippers on both dresses were very hard to zip up. They kept getting stuck and I felt like I might rip the dress just trying to zip it up. Also, the size 6 was a bit stretched out around the neckline so it was a little baggy. I chose not to wear a necklace because the necklace didn't lay flat since the fabric was baggy. Other than that the dress was perfect and I was sad to return it!

The dress was a great style and would have given it 5 stars but the zipper was terrible. Hard to zip/unzip on the hanger and impossible to do once on. With my mom and boyfriend helping the couldn't get it zipped. So I had to take the dress on and off like a 2 year old over my head still zipped. I'm a curry girl and a mom so this dress hid that extra very well. Classic style and I loved the pockets

I didn't give this one a 5 because I just didn't LOVE it. I usually do love most of the RTR dresses I get but this missed the mark for me. First off, it was VERY difficult to zip up. Not because I am big trying to squeeze in it or anything like that. The hook on the top was sewn in backwards so I couldn't zip it up properly. I had to have my friend zip me up. Forget it if you're on your own. I am 5 3" and I felt the dress was swimming on me.

I will definitely be renting from rent the runway again! The sizing does run small, so I would order your typical size and a size bigger. The dress's zipper was hard to zip as well. If you are planning on going to an event where you will be spinning or twirling, I would wear spandex because it does fly up. Hope my review helps!
