The dress would have looked amazing, but...
The fit was amazing, but the zipper was stuck and then broke. I think this dress had been worn way too many times because the white around the chest had really light grey spots - possibly from a steamer or a stain that didn't quite come out? I would definitely buy this dress for my own use...

A little too stiff and too flared
I ended up not wearing it. Very pretty dress but too "girly" on me. Might be great on taller person.

Cute!
This was a great dress for a summer wedding. It was a little tight across the bust. The skirt is full with a lot of material. My only complaint is that it wrinkled really easily and the pleats did not stay pleated.

Beautiful dress. Tricky zipper
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!

Gorgeous, flattering and comfortable
I love this dress! It has a thick fabric that is comfortable to wear. When I stood up from sitting I did need to smooth the folds down each time (because of the thickness of the fabric and folds retained their shape) but not a big deal. It was also a bit wrinkled upon arrival. Overall I was really happy with it!

Cute dress but really had some issues with the zipper so I didn't wear it
Cute dress and really fun. I'm not sure why but the zipper stuck on this and my backup size so much so that I was afraid to wear it for fear I would damage it getting the zipper up and down

I chose this dress for a Family Memorial Celebration.
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"!

Perfect fit
I'm a true size 6 but knowing finer designers sizing run a bit larger I ordered a size 4 too. The six was perfect. Totally true to size. The zipper was a little tricky because of the seem but a little persistence payed off. I also ordered the layered pearl necklace but it felt a bit much for me. All in all, it was perfect, classic and made me feel like a lady.

Beautiful, fun party dress!
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!

It was longer on me than I thought. It fit perfect I was nervous bc some said it was tight around the bust it wasn't too bad on me.

Very classy and sophisticated for a wedding!
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
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!)

Great dress and very flattering!
I am happy I got the backup size - it came in handy, as the 12 was too small for my bust. Every where else in the dress was loose - except that. But it still looked really nice.

Great dress!
I rented this dress for a parent's event at our kids school - it was a little poofy at the bottom for my liking but overall, I felt very comfortable in this dress. I received multiple compliments on the dress throughout the night. It does run a little small at the top - I usually wear a size 8 and I'm glad I ordered the 10 as well because I ended up wearing the bigger size just for comfort purposes.

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!

Comfortable, classic!
Loved wearing this dress- the full skirt is awesome! Only drawback and why I docked it a star is that the side zipper was a struggle to zip all the way up or down. It would get stuck on fabric, not because size was an issue. So keep that in mind :-)

It was classic and elegant
"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!

Holiday Party in the City
I loved this dress! I requested a size 0 and 2, the 2 ended up fitting better (less restricting in fit). The neckline laid flat, the fit around the shoulders and bust was nice and snug, but comfortable (I didn't feel as if it would have shifted around). The skirt wasn't lined, but was nice and full (with deep pockets!). Admittedly, there was a strong perfume smell to the fabric (undoubtably from previous wear) but it wasn't super noticeable. I got compliments on the dress and would definitely wear / rent again!

A great work holiday party with friends!
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!

Classy. Perfect fit. Would rent again.
My only complaint about this dress was the zipper. It was pretty difficult to zip up - turned into a 2 person effort. Other than that I have no complaint. It was a very flattering cut. I would rent again for sure. Great for dancing too. Twirls very nicely.

I rented this dress for a holiday party at work. I got tons of compliments. It's a great dress. I'm petite and though the dress fit well, it was a little longer on me than it is on the display picture. The material was really comfortable. Loved it!

The fit of the dress is great and was very flattering on my figure. The material wrinkled very easily and I was a bit disappointed in the quality of the material as it seemed a bit worn and cheap. That being said, I felt good in the dress and would rent again.

The only downfall is the invisible zipper is in an awkward place. I needed 2 people to help me zip it up. If you have a wider ribcage, I would suggest sizing up. Plenty of room in the skirt, but the bodice ran a little tight.

Very disappointed
I went by the reviews of this dress and ordered it for a friend's wedding. Unfortunately, this dress runs super small in the bust. I am a 34D and usually wear a size 6. I ordered a 6 and an 8 and both would BARELY zip up over my bust. The dress was also too full for my petite form (4'10"). Sad, I love Kate Spade.

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

Very flattering and classic.
Extremely flattering fit and design. A classic look. The zipper is a little difficult where the skirt and the top meet, which is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. It took me and my husband to get that thing to zip up, but it was by no means too small.

The fit was perfect. I ordered a 2 and 4 but since I wore it for Thanksgiving dinner, figured the larger size might be smart! Everyone loved the dress! Would absolutely rent it again/any Kate Spade item.

Classy dress!
Rented for a cocktail party I was hosting. I usually wear a 0 or 2-- both fit fine, but I enjoyed the snugness of the 0. I'm sure anyone with a chest bigger than mine (32A) would need to size up! The zipper on both dresses were a little tricky, but with a little fussing it was fine. Paired with some Kate Spade pearls and I was ready for a classy evening!

This dress would be great for a variety of occasions.
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!

First time using RTR and it was great! I ordered an 8 (my usual size) and a 10, the 8 fit perfectly. I have no complaints about this dress! Can't wait to rent again. :)
