Way too small.
I have quite broad shoulders, so even if the size hadn't run quite so small it probably wouldn't have fit me. The dress itself appeared to be very well made and the material seemed nice, maybe a little heavy. I don't think this would put me off renting a Kate Spade dress again, but I would probably be prepared to order 2-3 sizes larger. I attempted to have another dress sent to me, in a larger size, but sadly it didn't work out. The customer service was great, but I ended up scrambling to find an outfit for my event.

Loved it! Perfect pockets.
Loved it! Looked a little worn from too many washings but not noticeable from a distance. Fit nicely but did wear a padded bra to make the top seem more fitted.

Felt fancy!
Like the other reviews said, tight around the chest area. Thankfully I had someone to help me zipper. Once it was zipped up, fit fine!

This event was a great night. I attended an awards dinner and got plenty of compliments on my dress!
I loved the dress. It looked exactly like the pictures and was perfect for my event. The only thing that I didn't like was that the zipper was on the side. It was hard for me to get it zipped. It's a simple but formal dress. The height was just below my knees which was perfect. This was my first dress with rent the runway and I'll definitely be doing it again!

Perfect fit - dress is worn
Super cute. Fit perfectly. Pockets! Dress is showing some wear, especially along the neckline and waist. And the white is dingy. It was not noticeable at the party with darker lighting or in photos.

I went to the ballet in Portland, OR. Great dress, however it was weird, because people wore jeans.
Fit great. Arrived on time and it was very easy to send back. :) Great business model and customer experience.

Wore for a Kate Spade themed bridal shower in my honor as well as a wedding reception that evening.
Size 0 not accommodating for a cup size of C or greater. Bust was tight but I didn't want to sacrifice the fit in the waist which would have occurred if I sized up to the 2. Gave it 4/5 stars due to the fact that some wrinkles would not come out even after ironing it myself. Will require pressing upon arrival as the fabric wrinkles easily. Don't bother trying to read the care tag as it is so faded you can't tell the proper way to de-wrinkle. Loved the dress - the skirt was so fun! Wore it with black and white pumps to the shower and black tights with black flats to the reception. Looked nice with both. Was repeatedly told how tiny my waist looked in the dress, likely due to the fitted nature of the top part of the dress (which in turn, causes the zipper to be trickier than others). Dress may require assistance to zip up if you don't routinely deal with invisible zippers. Overall, great dress for those with a straight or pear body type with the fitted top and full skirt.

Very cute, sophisticated dress.
I loved the fit and flare fit. Just of note, the ZIPPER is annoying. Very hard to get zipped. Other than that, loved this dress.

Adorable dress that's work appropriate while still being stylish and fun. Great full skirt with pockets. Bodice is a lil on the snug side - I'm not large chested and it was form fitting.

Prefect for a work event, a lot of compliments plus hidden pockets :)
This dress was perfect for a work function/award ceremony. I loved the classic yet flirty look of the dress. The work event was a breakfast so minimal jewelry And a fresh face really worked. It has hidden pockets which was perfect as well. I received a lot of compliments throughout the day as well. Would definitely rent again.

Great length and design, but the zipper gave me a hard time raising it, because it is pretty small in the chest area.

Gorgeous dress but the zipper issue is no joke. I thought I was going to break the zipper when trying to get the dress on... Had to have 2 people help.

New Year's With Style
It fit perfectly for me, I'm about 5'4" with a tiny chest. It flared out exactly as portrayed in pictures and had the classic style that Kate Spade does so well. If it were available to buy, I would've gone back and bought it I loved it so much! Very comfortable and very chic.

I loved this dress! It was exactly what I was expecting and it felt great.
It was a little hard to zip up (not stretchy at all) but I have wide shoulders.

Being surrounded by friends who all catered to my Kate Spade themed party :)
People aren't lying when they are stating that this dress is tight in the upper region. I'm a B cup and normally wear a 4-6 size dress and I needed help zipping it all the way to the top. Once zipped it was fine, but if I was any bustier it most likely wouldn't have fit. I loved the fit besides that though, and the length and shoulder cut were perfect... added some cut heels and I was loving it! Unfortunately I didn't take too many pictures!

great quality- wish i would have had 1 size up for my chest
Loved this dress! It was tight in the chest, though. I didn't receive the 2nd size so I just worked with the size 4. The zipper ended up breaking at the end of my day (I wore this for a Kentucky Derby party), but I was already on my way home so it didn't end up being an embarrassing situation. I'm barely 5'4 so I was nervous that the length would be an issue, but I wore heels so it balanced me out. The dress fell right at my knees. I would definitely rent this again, but I would just rent the size 6

Comfortable for a black and white piano recital
This dress was comfortable and stood out at a black and white themed piano recital I attended. It ran a little small as I usually wear a size 4 but the 6 was definitely the correct size in this dress. The fabric is soft but has structure to it. I am a 34A and the fabric was still very tight across the chest so if you are larger up top you might want to size up even more. The full skirt was super comfortable.

I didn't actually wear this dress, it was a back up.
I didn't wear this dress because I couldn't get it to zip up over my bust. I am a true size 4, however, with a 34DD bust, I sometimes cannot fit into a 4 and must go up to a 6. I ordered a backup dress in a 6 (different designer/different dress) and that one fit just fine. This dress was beautiful, it just didn't fit.

Pretty dress!
This dress was super pretty and comfy! It flares out a lot so there is a lot of fabric. The only thing I didn't like was the cotton fabric gets very wrinkly. So be prepared to do some ironing.

It fit perfect and was VERY comfortable!
I wore this dress to my sister in laws shower. It fit perfect and was so beautiful but the black was a tiny bit faded. I was glad the 4 wasn't the right size because that was my back up and it was very faded and had some cover up or makeup on the neckline. The 2 fit like a glove and was the perfect dress for the bridal shower we had in a barn.

Loved the dress and got SOO many compliments! I wore it to my Kate Spade themed wedding shower.
Fit really well! I have a large bust(32DD) and a small waist(25") so although the 2 fit well on my waist, it was too small for my bust so I went up to the 4. But the 4 wasn't too baggy or anything like that and fit well :-)

So lovely!
The bust was very tight so I had to wear the size up. The zipper was also a bit sticky. With this material u did have to take to the dry cleaners to get the shipping wrinkles out. Allow a day for that. Other than those the dress was perfect! So many compliments at my event!

This dress was true to fit. If you hAve a larger chest you should go up a size but it fit me perfectly. It sucks in your middle and makes you feel very skinny. I am definitely going to rent this again.

Very flattering! I love this dress. As others mentioned, the zipper is a bit tricky but really no biggie. My friend was able to get it up in less than a minute. Because of a bit higher neck, I wore it with a stylish necklace and I think it brought the outfit together. I highly recommend.

Cute dress
I loved this dress. I would have rather worn the ten as the eight was a bit tight through the chest. However the zipper wouldn't work on the ten so I ended up wearing the eight. I wore it out to dinner with my husband and received many compliments.

Be sure to SMELL the dress because it doesn't always get super clean before it is sent to you!
Fit wise- this dress was perfect. Not too short, not too tight, super classy. However, like many of the reviewers here, I struggled with the zipper. I ordered both a 4 and a 2. As the dress cut goes up pretty high to the underarms, the size 4 reeked of perspiration and body odor. I think this type of fabric just absorbs perspiration and is just hard to get super clean with your typical dry cleaning. Therefore, I had to wear the 2. So my tip is to make sure you smell the dress BEFORE your event, it’s super frustrating to realize this issue as you’re getting ready for your event. I contacted RTR about the issue that morning, they said I could take it to get it cleaned, but my event was in an hour. The 2 was a little tight but I didn’t have any other options since the 4 smelled so bad. I loved the style of this dress and I really want to give it a 5, but the dress and perspiration issue makes me give it a 4.

Very cute for a weding
I rented this to wear for my cousin's wedding but unfortunately the size 0 was unavailable. I wanted to wear this dress but the size 2 was a little too big. I'm 5'6" 112 lbs and it was loose around my waist. I still loved the style and would recommend it to someone who could get their size. I ended up doing a 180 and wearing the Herve Leger dress that was my backup
