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.

Beautiful dress but runs large!
This dress was so vibrant and beautiful! Great quality and I wish it had fit. Both the backup and primary dress I ordered for this dress was too big on me.

Awesome color! Loved the pockets!!!
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!

Loveeeeed this dress!
Loved this dress so much that I wanted to keep it!!! It fit me like a glove and I received so many compliments!! The chest area was a little tight so I went bra-less (I'm normally a 34b) and had nice cleavage with it. You'll be happy you rented this one! Perfect for a summer wedding.

Loved the shape. I was definitely the only one in this color.
The color is more of a citron in person. Love Kate Spade, I would rent again. Be careful if you have a bigger chest and the cleavage will definitely be more prominent than in the pictured model.

I got tons of compliments on this dress and had a blast wearing it!
This is a great dress for a black tie wedding. I will caution anyone who is over 5'6" that this dress runs on the short side. I am 5'7" and felt a little uncomfortable because it was so short. If you are above average height, I would not recommend renting this dress!

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.

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!

Beautiful color, shape, and neckline. Pockets are an adorable plus!
This dress gives a beautiful pop of color in a sea of black. The skirt held its shape quite well on the size 0 I received, even through transit. It was snug in the waist but I was able to get through the night comfortably. Neckline is very flattering and best for a smaller bust. I was worried it would be a little short based on the pictures but hit perfectly mid-thigh on my 5'5 frame. My only negative feedback is that the lining extended outside of the dress in my backup size so that it would stick out from under the dress. (Luckily, this wasn't the one I had to wear.) I noticed later in the night that the lining on the one I was wearing was starting to stick out a little as well. Nothing that can't be solved with safety pins but important to note. I'm guessing this is caused by wear. Overall, I would recommend!

Amazing and comfortable dress for a dance formal.
Love the color even though the picture was a little misleading. It is more lime yellow/green than true yellow. It runs small but fit me perfectly. It was a bit worn around the neckline and shoulders. It appears a necklace might have picked it. The lined slip seemed to hang lower than the dress causing me to pin it up under the dress. I was pleased overall but would liked a more newer looking dress.

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.

Was TTS and very flattering neck line. I am 5'2 - not sure anyone taller could have worn due to the length. Pockets were a treat!

It's impossible to NOT feel sexy in a dress this blazing hot!
This dress was my first RTR and I opted for no alternative size. It fit me to a tee and the major plus was that I still had room to decide whether or not I wanted to wear a bra (that's usually not optional). I went without simply because I could! I wore this to an outdoor vineyard wedding and every picture caught this dress's vibrancy perfectly. It was short but not provocatively so and gave me enough cleavage to feel sexy without calling too much attention. The pockets were a big selling point as well. I loved that I had so many accessory options. Really, though, the dress says enough on its own. Keep it simply and let this dress do what it does. Ironically, the MOG wore a similar Kate Spade dress and we marveled together at our impeccable taste. It was a HUGE hit!

Beautiful fit (true to size), fun color (more of a citron than a yellow), easy to dance in, and it has pockets! Got a lot of compliments. Really fun for summer. Kate Spade, you win. Again.

I was obsessed with this dress! The color pops, got tons of compliments!
The fit was great. I typically wear a 2 or a 4 and the 2 fit perfectly. The dress flares out a bit which makes it super fun and the color really makes you stand out. It was perfect for a summer wedding! I received lots of compliments and felt great in the dress.

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!

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!

Here Comes the Sun
Wore this to a wedding & received compliments all night long. In fact, one of the girls at my table wanted to know where I go my dress b/c she wanted the dress for her bridesmaids for her own wedding! The color is a show stopper/attention grabber, especially if you have a dark complexion. It does run a little big. I have a somewhat wide ribcage, but I still definitely would have opted for the 0 -- except the 0 was kind of scrunched/pointy in the chest area, and I felt awkward. Also, GREAT if you are curvy in the hips. Another hit. Thank you, RTR!

This dress definitely runs big as I was able to wear a 00 and I usually wear a 0. Color is awesome - more of a chartreuse than a yellow. Loved it!

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.

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.

I got SO many compliments on this dress. Loved the pockets. Runs a touch big.
This was a super flattering dress. I felt great! And everyone loved it. Not too short. It runs a touch big but I think I would have been slightly less comfortable in the 6. The 8 was sorta big in the back (top of the neck) and sides. But fit perfectly in the rib cage.

I loved this dress from the minute I saw it on RTR. The color is perfect. More citron then yellow.
Fit perfectly and very comfortable! I usually can wear a 4 or 6 but the 6 would have been too big. If you think you may be in between the sizes I would order the 4. A little tight on the chest but nothing uncomfortable.

Great Dress!
I thought this dress was amazing! I fit in my normal size 8, but I would recommend that if you are a bigger on top that you may be a bit squeezed into the top. I had a decent amount of cleavage and I'm not large on top. However, I did get compliments all night on my dress, and it was great for a summer wedding!

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!!!

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!

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.

Beautiful, fun, and vibrant
This is a beautiful dress and would look great on any body type. The fabric does have a bit of a sheen to it so it might be a little intense if you are outside. My only note is this is very thick fabric, I wore this in late spring so maybe 85 degrees and it was VERY hot. The thickness is great for holding its shape and making your body look flawless, but I would not recommend if you are going to be outside in the heat.

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 ;)

Beautiful color
I loved this dress! I was soooo upset that i couldn't wear it. It wouldn't zip. I couldn't tell if it was my rib cage or boobs that prevented it from zipping, even though there was a lot of extra room at the top. It was a stunning color and material and had pockets. If you are top heavy, I would go up a size. The lenght was perfect on me and I am 5'4.

So pretty, order in advance if you want to rent!!
This dress is so unbelievably beautiful, but I couldn't wear it because it was too tight in the bust. I'm usually a 6-8, but they only had a 4 available. I really wanted to try it, so I ordered it hoping it would fit. Of course it ended up not fitting. I tried ordering it again for an upcoming wedding, but it was already booked for that date as well. So basically if you are interested in renting this dress, order it way in advance!!!!

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.
