A fantastic wedding!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I can't even describe the ways in which I love this dress. I love it so much that immediately upon returning it, I sought it out and bought it (seriously, within 10 minutes of dropping the package in the return box - I needed to own it). I felt like a million bucks in it. I've had three kids and have been up and down in sizing, so wasn't sure how this would fit - but the 14 was perfect, it fit like a glove. The fabric has just the tiniest amount of stretch, which I liked. The fabric itself is heavy enough to lay really well, but I wore it to an outdoor spring wedding on a warm day, and it definitely wasn't too hot. I think the stripes are much prettier in person, the blue is vibrant and rich. The skirt is a little fuller than in the picture (fun for dancing!), and the bodice is on the tighter side, but those things made it fit me even better. It's great if you have hips you want to hide.

Perfect for an outdoor bridal brunch.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

Both the 8 and 10 fit but I ended up going with the 10 so I had extra room in the arms (which are definitely my problem area). Other reviewers were right about the zipper being a struggle; it's not because the dress is too tight either. Plan to have a buddy when getting ready. Fabric is thick without being hot. Well constructed. I received lots of compliments. My boyfriend summed it up perfect by saying, "You could wear that again and I wouldn't be upset." Definitely a winner!

Good daytime dress

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this dress for a college reunion- the blue and white colors were perfect for that event. Since I needed to be dressed up beginning at 1:30 in the afternoon, through to an evening dinner, this dress served well. I didn't feel particularly flattered by the dress, but it was comfortable to wear for 12 hours. Didn't need spanx. The dress did benefit from a really good pressing (hadn't done it when the photo was taken). Pockets were good, but I carried a separate clutch anyway. While the zipper was tricky, it wasn't that difficult to use. I had my husband help me get zipped and unzipped. I suspect that trying to squeeze into a too small size would make the zipper much more difficult to use. The dress came to the top of my knees, I'm 5'6"' tall. Beautifully made dress, on someone who can wear a smaller size it would look really nice, I think.

Classy yet fun

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Wore this dress to a formal graduation dinner. In a sea of black and navy, I stood out- in a good way! Fun, but not overly "young" for a 30 year old such as myself. The fit is true to size- the skirt flares out, which adds a little extra bulk to the hips, but with the flattering A line, it didn't bother me much. The pockets are discrete, but definitely come in handy! The fabric is thicker, so if it's a really hot day it could be a little warm! PS: Anyone notice Giuliana Rancic wearing this in her new furniture commercials!?! That woman's got some serious style, so you know this dress is cool!

I wore this to my 10 year high school reunion and loved it!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I ordered a 4 and a 6. I could have worn the 4 and gone for a tighter look, but it kind of squashed my chest. The 6 was just a tad more comfy and sat better at my waist (I'm tall so my waist is a bit lower in location). I really loved wearing this dress, and I also rented the necklace shown in the model picture. This was a really great dress and I got a lot of compliments on it. Also - POCKETS!!!! The negatives: The zipper is a killer - the first two dresses had broken zippers, but RTR customer service was fantastic and overnighted me two new units at no charge. The two new ones both had functional zippers. But just so you know - it's not you - it's the zipper. You'd think Kate Spade would spring for a more well-made zipper. But don't let it stop you from renting this dress - just plan in advance and make sure you can get in and out. You will also need to either iron or steam the skirt to revive the pleats after shipping.

The dress for perfectly with one note on the bodice being slightly fitted. I received numerous compliments on the dress and it slightly flared which I enjoyed. One last bonus were the pockets! If you have a larger chest I would be conscious that the dress might be tighter on you.

Absolutely perfect for a sophisticated summer wedding at the beach! And... it has pockets!!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I vary between a 10 and 12 depending on designer etc. I chose to wear the 12 because it was a hot and humid day and I didn't want to feel uncomfortable. Also, while the 10 did technically fit, it was a bit snug so the pleats on the skirt did not lay as perfectly as I would have liked on my hips and butt. The 12 was a tad big at my collar bone, but ultimately looked fine. I wore the dress with a pair of navy blue with white polka dot peep toe heels -- probably a fashion faux pas to mix patterns! -- but I got tons of compliments on how great it looked! I truly loved this dress!

I wore the 6. My D cups would not fit in the 4 so I had to size up. Even sizing up though it was still a bit tight in the chest. Loved the pockets. I had so much fun and felt so pretty in this dress.

The dress would have been perfect in a 2. And that it was a 4, which was a little loose in the bust, and I still got compliments on the dress. That is a testament to how awesome the dress is.

Feminine and classy

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for my 30th birthday party. The celebration happened to be on a boat, so the blue stripes had the perfect nautical feel. The skirt was full and had great movement even though the fabric was pretty heavy. It was fun and flirty, while not being too revealing or flashy. The chest of the dress was tight even though I'm not very busty, so I did wear up a size. I was a little worried about the cap sleeves annoying me during the night, but I didn't even notice they were there. Overall, this was one of my favorite rentals.

Comfortable and modest dress that still stands out. Plus, great customer service from RTR!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small

I ordered a size 4 and size 2 as a backup; both were too small. RTR was willing to ship a size up to my hotel in another state. It was a wonderful customer service experience. The dress was quite fitted in the waist, but photographed beautifully. I got so many compliments! Like others have said, the zipper was a bit tricky. I think it was too delicate for a thicker fabric. Otherwise, it was perfect. Thanks, Rent the Runway!

Overall fit: True to Size

Great dress from Kate Spade! The fitting was true to size - I found that it fit nicely around the bust and waist. The skirt has a lot of volume (probably more than I originally realized!) and hit a tiny bit above my knee. I wore with 2inch wedges to a rehearsal dinner. I originally wanted to pair it with the Peri to My Winkle Necklace, but the coloration looked strange. I wouldn't recommend those two together, but very nice apart!

Pretty good dress, fits/looks as advertised

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
When I first put it on I thought, "wow, that's a lot of stripe and a lot of blue" but if you wear it with confidence, you will pull it off and it's a cool dress. I wore it to an outdoor wedding and got some compliments on it. The 2 or 4 would have worked but the 4 was more comfortable to wear all day and the 2 had something weird going on with the neckline (folded over). I liked the pockets a lot. Nice lightweight material, fit true to size, easy to wear. I recommend this dress.

You will have to iron the dress and crease the pleats when you receive the dress. The material is thick and combined with the pleats, you will have to smooth out the dress every time you stand up. If you have a large bust, order a size up from your normally wear.

Overall fit: True to Size

Great fit for my post baby body, I am still about 2 sizes larger than my normal size. I loved that this dress has an A-line skirt, it's perfect to hid the belly I still have. The zipper was a little difficult to get up - I needed my husband to zip me up two different times as I was unable to do it myself. The fabric is a little thicker so the dress didn't wrinkle and it looked great in photographs. Plus with my spanx on everything felt nice and secure. I really wanted to keep this dress. It was a perfect choice for my son's baptism.

Stiff poofy fabric - not so flattering

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

I rented this for my bridal shower. I rented 6 and 8 -- 6 was too small to zip around the chest, and the 8 fit on top but just looked horrible -- it was way poofier on me than in the picture and the fabric was extremely stiff. It was very unflattering and I sent it back without wearing it. Too bad this was not a winner!

Wore this dress for a wedding. The fit was fantastic on this dress. The pleats give volume to the dress and the pockets are a fantastic touch. It is a classic style and was incredibly comfortable to wear all evening. The dark blue fell at the smallest part of my waist which helped make it look even smaller which I think is an overlooked and subtle addition to this dress. I would recommend this dress to anyone who likes the style!

Loved the fit and the quality of the dress. I have a broad back but this dress in a 4 fit fine - zipped up perfectly. I have a small bust and I'm a straight and narrow body type. Not sure for straight and narrow body type/small bust how flattering this dress was given the stripes as it didn't appear to emphasize small waist and larger bust. Given my body type I'm not sure I would wear this style again but overall the dress was beautiful and I LOVED the color. Will rent Kate Spade again!
