I wore this dress to a work event and I just LOVED Loved IT
It may be slightly longer than you think it's going to be but it fits great and the fabric is smooth with a hint of a shine. I actually tried to find this dress afterwards to buy but couldn't find it anywhere, still highly recommend it to be rented, I will rent again.

Beautiful, but if you have hips this is not gonna work out.
Gorgeous dress and well-made. Got it as a backup but didn't end up wearing it. I could barely fit it up my hips, and zipping it? Forget it. Too bad. I ended up wearing another dress. This dress would be a better fit for a straight and narrow body type, not an hourglass as falsely suggested!

Great quality dress
This is a particular look, so it may not be good for everyone. I think a high heel is a must to elongate the legs, since the skirt goes below the knee. I wore with red shoes. A thin black belt (did not come with the dress) also adds a nice touch but isn't absolutely necessary.

Cute dress, but not for me
I am normally a size 6 in Kate Spade, but the 8 in this dress was really tight in the mid-section and not wearable. If you're a fan of Kate Spade, you'll love this dress, but it's very fitted, so if that's not your thing you may want to pass on this one.

Adorable conservative dress!
Wore this to a courthouse wedding with some cute teal heels! Had a little jacket for the wedding and let the print shine for the lunch following. I love love love this dress and had a hard time giving it back!

Looks great in the picture
I reserved this dress for our family pictures, but when I received it, it didn't fit. It was too tight around the breast area. The dress was too long for my style. Great dress though.

Unfortunately a problem dress
Holly's picture with the black shrug made me and a friend both fall in love with this dress. A friend and I flipped a quarter to decide who was going to get to rent this dress for the same event we're both going to. I won! Unfortunately both dresses arrived with noticeable snags and the linings hung longer than the shells. Since it's a bag lining, it's not something take can take care of. I took them to my tailor, who won't alter rented things, and she said that it was cleaned wrong and she can tell because what happened is the shells shrunk more than the linings. I alto tried on the 6 I ordered, and it was far too tight. I own a few Kate Spade dresses and usually wear a 4. So the 6 being too small by a lot is more evidence of bad washing. I'm just glad I ordered for delivery a couple days in advance. RTR's customer service has been great and is replacing with the dress of my choice without regard to cost, and I've got a lot of friends who are regular renters. So this experience isn't deterring me from still liking the company. When you do any volume of business, there are bound to be a few bad eggs. Still looking forward to a rental relationship with this company. :)

Day at the track
True to size, although I wish I would have ordered it one size smaller. Amazing dress, so pretty. Got tons of compliments. Wish I could wear it again.

Creates some super curves
Great dress overall. Good quality, but it's very tight in the upper torso, and requires a longer torso to make it look good. I had to wear spanx underneath to keep the slim look. It also rides up when you sit down and wrinkles easily. But, I got some amazing compliments and the camera seemed to love it.

I wore this to a steeplechase with a big black hat - it was perfect!
I don't usually try things without stretch, but this dress looked like it was custom made for my body. I highly recommend it if you have an hourglass shape!

Beautiful dress, no stretch, not good for fuller hips.
They couldn't send the size 10 because it came back damaged and that is the size that would have fit. the 8 almost fit but was too tight around my hips and butt.

Great fit.
I liked the dress but didn't love it. I got size 6 & 8. Both fit but the 8 gave me more room to breathe and move around so I wore that.

This dress was a bit tight on top due to my large bust size but otherwise very comfortable. I wore the size 8 and it was still a bit snug but not uncomfortable. Loved wearing this!

Rental for my mom- it was perfect!!
I rented this one for my mom to wear to a church event. She loved it and g it so many compliments that she restyled it the following Monday and wore it to work. She is 57 years old, 5'8", and usually wears an 8 or a 10. The 10 fit perfectly and my dad jokes that maybe he shouldn't let her out of the house looking so good!

The dress was great. I wore a bright yellow belt with it instead just to spice it up.
The fit of the dress was true to size, the belt that came with it was to large so I worn a thin bright yellow belt I had instead.

Fun and flattering
This dress was perfect for the couple bridal BBQ my best friend threw for us. I got several compliments throughout the evening. It was comfortable and overall fit very well and was very flattering. One thing to note is that it was snug in the hip area, so if you are a curvier/pear-shaped keep that in mind for sizing. The only other critique I had was that it wrinkled noticeably from sitting during dinner and gift opening. Overall I loved this dress and would definitely rent it again!

Great for the back side, and ruffles are super sweet
ordered 10 and 12, 12 fit best. I couldn't get the 10 over my hips (~40 1/2 in), though I have tried on multiple K.S. dresses before and size 10 normally works for me. The dress isn't white and black as it looks. Its a little off-white and black. The belt comes with and is very easy to use and it stays pretty still. The dress did amazing things for my junk in the trunk, while still looking sweet and respectable. I did a 2 hr flight in it+walking around a city for ~5 hrs and it was very comfortable. Its not very forgiving for post baby pooches though. The ruffles on the bottom were very cumfy and move nicely when you walk. I would definitely buy this one!

Fit my hourglass shape just right. The skirt felt short but the flared part went lower than it felt.

Comfortable & classy!
Although it wasn't as white as I had expected it to be, I think I was better off. The dress was beautiful, easy to dance in, and the length was to the knee. I loved it with a pop of red jewelry & shoes!

Very comfortable dress for an outdoor wedding
Loved this dress and would rent it again. Fabric is medium weight, but not too heavy for an outdoor wedding in LA. It got up to the low 90's, but thankfully was down to the 80's by the time of the ceremony! Liked that you can use a regular bra with it, as it has the little thread stays to hold the straps in place. Contrasting gold zipper is also a nice touch.

Classic, Comfortable & Fun!
Not only did the dress fit super well (without hose or Spanx!), it also survived being packed into a bag and loaded onto a bus from Boston to NYC, then worn on the subway to the wedding in Brooklyn, a trolley ride through Bklyn, and then a bar crawl back up Smith Street!! Talk about a super dress!!

I love this dress! It comes with a skinny black belt but RTR called to tell me it was missing. I went and bought the one in my picture because I knew I'd use it again.

Loved the way this dress felt as soon as I took it out of the box. The quality was easy to spot.
Wore this for a fundraiser wine tasting. High quality fabric, nice shape. Received lots of compliments.

Not for a short torso
I ordered a 10 and 12 in order to make sure I had one that fits. The 10 was sliiightly too tight in that it showed every bump, but the 10 was also too long to the waist seam so the zipper bunched in the back. Awkward. Not flattering.
