Amazing color

The color of this dress is amazing! And pockets?! Yay! As usual, I had a bit of a tough time fitting the girls into this dress and I ended up having to wear a compression bra (I'm 32F). It was still a tight fit but k wasn't spilling out and looked appropriate. I normally think short dresses are too long (5'4) but the length on this was perfect. It hit a little below mid thigh. If I wore dresses more than once, I'd definitely rent this again.

Standout dress!

Received compliments all night. I am larger chested and did not wear a bra because the dress was tight up top but I loved it.

Love.

I have ordered from RTR before and have been nothing less than in love with the company and procedures. Being a Kate Spade junky, I was thrilled when I saw this dress was now available and quickly reserved it for Homecoming. Two days before my event, I received an email saying that it was not returned and would not be available. I was beyond thankful for the RTR compassion and sincerity, as they immediately sent me a replacement dress. However, it was just not the same. I ended up not wearing the replacement dress, but I am very impressed with RTR's customer service and will be sure to use RTR again.

I felt like a million bucks!!

This was my first RTR dress and I was SO happy with it! The dress is stunning!! Definitely size down! You will stand out in the crowd and have strangers compliment you!! It does get a little wrinkled but who cares! I also rented the coral looking cuff, these sparkly earrings and a clutch to go with it. Wore pink platform sandals for another pop of color! I wish I could buy this dress!! If you are on the fence about it, just go for it!!! You won't be disappointed!

Great dress for a spring formal occasion/wedding

Looooved this dress - very comfortable and fit true to size. The color is more of a hybrid between neon yellow and green. I wore the zero because I believe my backup 00 size was accidentally swapped with a size 2. Regardless, the 0 was perfect - could be a bit too snug for bigger chested ladies. It was a little tight for me around the ribcage as well, but it wouldn't have looked right if it wasn't tight in the chest/rib area. Was a little worn at the neckline - the hem at the neckline seemed like it was starting to come out as well as the neckline stitching seemed like it may tear after a few more wears. However, all these notes were minor, and it was a great dress!

I'm a musician so being bold is essential. Wore for to 2 performances and received many compliments.

Great fit top to bottom especially if you have a badonk. It shapes a female's body well done

Color, texture, fit. All perfect

I'm 5,8 and 125lbs, my bust is a 32 DD. I wore a size 2 in this dress and the fit was perfect. The color, texture and weight of this dress can best be described as light and fresh. It's a fun, classy and sexy dress all in one. It complimented my skin tone perfectly. A must rent!

Bright and pretty!

Absolutely loved this dress and got so many compliments! Warning-it is NOT yellow! It is definitely citron. It has a lot of green in it. It's still such a fun color and perfect for a wedding. I adored this dress. Very flattering too

COLOR COLOR COLOR!

This dress was so amazing! It was the perfect shade and the cut was so classic. I wore this beauty to a wedding and received tons of compliments. It definitely runs big because I normally wear a size 2 and ended up wearing a 00 and it fit perfectly. I paired the dress with silver strappy sandals, and my boyfriend couldn't stop staring ;)

Vibrant color! Looks great on.

I just gave birth to my daughter 5 weeks ago. So I needed a dress that was complimentary to my small frame yet hid my postpartum belly. This dress was it! The tight fit up top with the open v-neck along with its short length complimented my 5'3" petite frame perfectly. Also, my main concern was hiding postpartum baby belly and the a-line cut hid it well. The main pros is the color, the pockets, and fabric. The bright yellow color livens up its simple cut and perfect for spring/summer. The pockets are useful and offer a cool-laid back feature to this more formal dress. And the fabric is quality. Also, this dress is fun to accessorize with! No complaints about it.

Amazing color!

Amazing color and shape! Perfect for a wedding. I am usually a size 8/M and ended up wearing the size 8. It was perfect for a wedding. I am 5'6" and the dress was the perfect length. Overall a great choice! Would rent it again.

The color was so fun!

Super fun dress. I loved the pockets, the length (I'm 5'4 and it was the perfect "short" on me), and the color got so many compliments. It is a bit low-cut, but nothing a little fashion tape couldn't fix. Great rental for a summer wedding!

Seamless! I would definitely rent again in the future!

I love the fit and color of the dress.! I usually am a size 4 but I wore size 2. The only problem with this dress is the lining is showing in the front so I've to tucked it in with a pin but other than that the dress is definitely gorgeous!!!

Beautiful, unique color; loved that the skirt portion poofed out.

It was very tight in the bust. Big-chested ladies beware! I'm normally a 36D, and wore a 10, and it was ridiculously tight, to where it was uncomfortable. It is a beautiful dress though, and flattering otherwise.

So fun! So flattering!

I did not want to return this dress! It was sooo comfortable and perfect for a spring beach wedding. There are tons of color options to accessorize this dress. I chose cobalt blue but fuchsia was a close second option. The fabric wore well throughout the evening and didn't get loose or wrinkles. I got tons of compliments all night. Highly recommend!

Loved the Color and Cut

I wore this when my first option didn't work out, but after trying it on, this should have been my first choice anyway. The color was great. It's a standout cut/fit though the pictures on the RTR website (& the one picture I added) don't do this dress justice. Loved the pockets. It's comfortable and classic with just enough of something (color or other) to make it standout. I received many positive comments throughout the night. One negative was that the lining of this dress hung out/below the hem line on one side, but I fixed it with safety pins and it was a non-issue after that.

Amazing color and perfect amount of flare!

I wore this dress for my pineapple Halloween costume. It was a little snug in the chest area, so if it wasn't Halloween I probably couldn't get away with it. The size up was overall way too big, so if you have a fuller chest this dress might not be the best option. The color is brilliant and it was very comfortable! Loved it!

Tight in the bust compared to the hips (flare skirt) like most KS dresses, but I expected that having rented some previously. Lovely bright color and fun fabric. Shorter than average but still pulled it off for work.

The color and material make this perfect!

This fit true to size, I usually wear a size 4. The material is great, it's thicker so smoothed out imperfections but not so thick that it's hot. The skirt cupcakes out the right amount, even on a short person. The color definitely has more green in it than the picture, but it's gorgeous and totally pops.

Despite needing to iron the skirt a little, I loved this dress! Radiant color in person, and perfect for a summer wedding! Material is thick enough I wore without a bra. I found the fit TTS and received endless compliments. Will be renting again!

I did not want to return this. Flirty and fun, so many compliments. Ordered 4 and 6 and wore the 4. Still had room. The color photographs bright yellow, but it has green undertones...still beautiful! Felt like a ray of sunshine! Last, it's short so if you have long legs, be prepared!

The wedding photographer loved it!

This dress was perfect for the evening wedding I just attended this last weekend. Bold and beautiful and simple. I received many compliments during the night and this dress was so comfortable! I felt this ran large in the bust/chest but fit well at the waist. If you're tall this might be too short for you.

It's lime green, not yellow!

I rented this for my rehearsal dinner, but couldn't wear it because it ran too large. You should know that it is not the color you see here, it's lime/neon green......it's not yellow! I had purchased a turquoise necklace to wear with it, but if I had worn it, the necklace would not have gone with it. The dress ran big around the middle and I looked like I was swimming in it. I ordered a size larger than my normal size as my back up, but should have ordered a size smaller as my back up. The dress is very cute and will keep it in mind for another occasion!

The color of this dress is phenomenal. I had strangers stopping me to compliment my dress. Gorgeous!

This dress is quintessential Kate Spade to me with just the right amounts of whimsy and classic. I initially had ordered a sz 0 with the 2 being my backup but ended up being able to try the size 2 on in a store and was swimming it in so I changed to ordering the 00 as my back up and boy am I glad that I am. I tried on both the 0 and the 00 and although the 00 was a bit tight around my chest I felt it was the better fit overall. I opted not to wear a bra as it is a thick fabric and my 32DD were a bit snug. I am petite and it can be a struggle to find a dress that isn't too long. This dress was the perfect length on me. If you are tall you might find this dress to be a bit too short. Moral of the story. Order a sz smaller then you think you should.

Beautiful color, perfect fit!

I wore this dress for my 50th birthday party. The theme was a Spanish dinner with "colorful cocktail" attire. Felt like belle of the ball. It runs a bit big bc I never wear a 00. Received so many compliments - and was called "Samantha from Bewitched" and "Jane Jetson" bc the dress skirt stands out on it's own! Such a statement dress I am glad to have rented it bc would probably not have an occasion to wear something like this again. Love this dress!!

Loved this dress! The color really pops and the material is so nice!

I wore this dress to the ESPY Awards for ESPN, and I got so many compliments. I usually wear a size 6, and I ended up wearing the 4 (thank goodness for the free 2nd size!). Even the 4 was a little too large for me. I would recommend definitely going with a size down from your usual. The material is so nice and the pockets are perfect! I would rent this again for sure!

Fabulous color... and it has POCKETS!

The dress was amazing! I wore it to a fall wedding in Charleston and got compliments all night long, many from complete strangers. It was the perfect length for me, as I wore heels to the ceremony and eventually changed into flats at the reception. Because I'm a bit short, dresses tend to be too long on me when I wear flats, but this was perfect! I usually wear a size 8 and although the dress fit fine, I would have preferred a size 6 in this dress. I would recommend renting your regular size and one size down as your back up. Overall, this is a great dress! Fabulous color, easy to dance in, very flattering, and not to mention it has pockets!

Eye-catching dress, perfect for a spring/summer event

This dress was perfect! I ordered down a size and it fit exactly how it should. It's great for a petite frame (I'm 5'3") and the hem hit a little above my knee. I felt very sexy, while remaining classy. Plus, it had pockets which are fun. I had several strangers tell me they loved my dress. I strongly recommend renting this, but suggest ordering down a size. Thanks RTR!

Best dress!

This is the second time I've rented this dress this summer - it is that good. The dress is a great silhouette - a bit low cut but since you can wear a regular bra (the dress has little snaps to prevent slipping) everything stays snug. I wasn't sure I'd like the flared/cupcake bottom, but it helped to create the look of a smaller waist. Plus: POCKETS! It is mostly true to size but if you're between sizes, I'd size down. It's also a great length on me, but I'm only 5'2", so beware taller gals.

The dress fit perfectly!! So flattering!!

This dress was SO flattering. I wish I could own it!! There is a lot of fabric on the bottom, which is perfect for my pear shaped body. I would say that this runs large-ish. I am normally between a 6 and 8 and wore the 6 - it fit perfectly but I was swimming in the 8. The bright yellow stood out in a crowd. It's more of green toned yellow and is very bright. It worked perfectly for my event. Highly recommended!!

Too short and more of a lemon/lime color.

Fit runs large. Size zero fit well but back was too short when I bent over. Also color was a big disappointing...there are lime undertones in the yellow, not what I was expecting. Ended up returning it before my wedding event.

The look on his face mirrored what I felt inside & at that moment, I never felt prettier- SIZE DOWN

This dress is in impeccable shape, constructed beautifully, and the prettiest color I've ever had the pleasure of wearing. I rented it for a sorority formal, with a need to really make a statement to my date ( wink wink). If you want to feel classy but sexy in the most confident and commanding way...this Kate spade dress is the one for you. Now, I'm tall and by no means the thinnest girl. I usually run about a 10 in pants, sometimes a stretchy 8 in dresses, usually a Large in all articles of clothing. I actually own a pair of kate spade pants in a tight size 12 so i was skeptical about this dress. I ordered down and boy am i happy i did. SIZE DOWN...unless you have uncommingly large breast. The dress is roomy but the fit is all about the breasts with this dress. I wore a bombshell bra to fill it out because it was even a bit big on me without it and i haven't been a size 8 in years. I never felt better and wish i owned such a splendid article of clothing.
