The dresses I originally wanted was not available this was my 3rd choice and FANTASTIC. So many compliments even walking over to the Apollo. It stood out I wore the size * and i am a D cup. A little tight so if you are a D cup you may want the 10. The pockets were great as the bag was small. The fabric was luxurious and would rent again if so many photos were not taken. LOL. One of my favorite rentals to date.

Absolutely LOVED this dress! The color was amazing! The fit was amazing! Everything was amazing about it! I wore it to a fashion conference and literally received compliments all day! The only con to this dress is that it wrinkles quite easily, but it still looks fabulous. This dress can be worn for so many different occasions, I definitely recommend this rental!

The is a great dress for petites! Usually, dresses need to be shortened in the strap area, but this dress fit just right- like an actual petite sized dress. I received so many compliments from many different types of people. Also, this dress has pockets! I wore it for a daytime event but this could totally be worn for an evening event.

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.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
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!!

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

Size worn: OO

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.

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!!

For anyone debating whether or not to go with this dress, maybe because it's a bit of a bold color or whatever, DO IT! I am 5'4", 128lbs and am nearly flat-chested, and this dress fit me like a glove (I wore the size 2). I received compliments on it all night, on not only the look but specifically on how well it fit me. Usually I have trouble with v-neck dresses because I don't fill them well, but I had just enough room for a strapless padded bra and it looked great!

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.

It's lime green, not yellow!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
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!

This was my first time using Rent the Runway and I had a great experience! The customer reviews helped me gage if this dress would fit and as soon as I zipped it I knew it was perfect! I wore it to a charity fundraiser that I chaired. I was running around all day and I was confident and comfortable...plus, this dress has pockets!!!! I received so many compliments all day! The color is vibrant, but does have a little lime tint to it. I am a short girl and the length was great on me and the dress made my waist look great. I am sad I have to send the dress back!!!!

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!

This dress is such a lovely color! I got compliments all night long, and I loved everything about it

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The only problem I had with this dress was that it was a little on the short side (I am 5'8 and in the heels I was wearing I was 6'0) so I had to be careful to not bend over, or my butt would be exposed. Also, I have a large chest, so if you're like me-small body with large breasts, then this dress can be tricky. I'm normally a 4 in dresses, but my boobs were a little constricted in this. I still loved how it looked on me though!

Fabulous color... and it has POCKETS!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
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!

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

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

LOVE THIS DRESS, would purchase it if I could! The color was AMAZING & I got rave reviews all night!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress definitely runs small, usually I'm a size 0-2 and even though I wore a 0 in this, I think the 00 would have fit a little better around my waist and bust (I added lots of padding to fill it out). This dress is very comfortable for sitting in and hits in all the right places when standing -- oh and did I mention that the pockets are perfection and very convenient! This dress aslo seems to be made for short girls! Usually I have to buy petite dresses in order for it to not look like I'm swimming in a dress, but the length of this dress was just perfect for my 5'2" frame. The color was amazing -- not quite yellow but not quite green and the exposed gold zipper in the back added a nice little touch of flair. I wore this dress to emcee a pageant and it's safe to say that this dress was a standout (just the right mix of a pop of color without being overwhelming) with my large drop stone earrings and stoned bangle bracelets. Would I rent this dress again? Absolutely!

Just like many of the comments stated, the wow factor is in the bodice/neckline. The size 2 fit as well and could have been a more conservative/less revealing choice.

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.

Size worn: 2

The color is stunning on olive or tan skin, and the quality is excellent. It definitely runs a bit big, but even with the size 2 a bit roomy, it still looked great on my daughter. The lining was a bit longer than the dress,so I used small safety pins to tack it up and it was not noticable. My daughter stood out at the formal event and it was just beautiful.
