Felt beautiful!

I loved this dress! Although it probably works better for taller or fuller bust girls. I had to tape it down because the straps were too long and it was gaping open I was showing a bit too much of the girls. Also, if I remember correctly, since its been two months since I wore it, on me it was big in the chest tight in the hips. Loved the color and shine. Wore it for NYE!

Loved the color

The dress was a low V- a lot more cleavage than I normally do but my husband loved it :) the necklace was a huge hit . I wore nude heels and overall was very happy. The dress was a little worn and the zipper not smooth in either size . If you look closely you can see the fabric spreading

Perfect!

This dress was sent when my original selection didn't work. This dress is amazing! It had just the right about of skin while staying classy. I'm usually a 6-8 and wore a 10. I couldn't have gone smaller in the chest, but had room in the bottom. I would definitely recommend this & RTR!

The colors and cut of the dress were classic and elegant. Perfect for graduation!

I wore this dress to my college graduation. The fit was great and the dress was very comfortable. I did notice that the seam on the chest was pulled and . Most likely from a previous renter who is significantly bustier than me. The dress was still wearable. Lots of compliments and perfect for this time of year.

The color was pretty

The top is very loose if your not busty - the other reviews said this but I thought I would be okay but it was still loose. It seemed to be stretched out from someone else as it was frayed a little but not noticeable. It was not my favorite rental at all but it was still pretty.

Very pretty replacement dress!

The stylists helped me pick this out after my original rehearsal dinner dress was sent back too damaged for them to rent out again. I was stressed about having to pick a new dress the day before the event, but luckily this Kate Spade beauty fit well and did the trick!

Gorgeous dress!

I wore this dress for NYE, and it was beautiful. However, it's VERY booby. I had to wear a minimizing bra to make it work. I also think it doesn't photograph particularly well - it's so much prettier in person!

Great color, shimmer and flattering fit. Received compliments on this dress all night long!

Loved the shape and fit of this dress. The shimmering color was beautiful and very unique. I received many compliments throughout the night. Only downside is that it does crease easily, almost like linen, so I wouldn't wear it for long time periods or in really hot weather.

Sparkly

I love the colors and how it shines. The dress does look a bit rumpled if you're in it for awhile so keep that in mind if you plan to take a lot of pictures.

Cute!

This dress was beautiful, especially the fabric. My only complaint is that it is not made well for full busts. Besides this, I received many compliments and enjoyed the gorgeous lilac color of this dress.

Beautiful, but not a dancing dress

Loved the color! Just was a little tight/rigid so didn't end up wearing it for a wedding where I knew there would be tons of dancing.

Dress was not fitted enough for me.

This is the 4th Kate Spade I have rented, and the 2nd one that was too large. I received a 0 and 2. The zero was too large and it was hard to tell how the dress would look if the fit was right. It is a light weight material, light lavender with gold embellishment. Could be pretty on the right skin tone and right body - just not mine. Luckily, the back up Herve Leger was amazing!

The perfect dress for NYE!

This was my first experience with RTR and it was almost perfect! The dress arrived in mint condition and I couldn't wait to try it on! Some of the previous reviews suggested sizing up because the fabric isn't stretchy at all which is true, but I wish I would've sized down. Since I'm not a busty gal, there was a lot of room in the top of the dress and probably another 2" through the waist. Regardless, the dress was gorgeous and I received many compliments on it all night! I will definitely rent from RTR again.

Felt glamorous!

I wore this to a Christmas party and loved it. It was a flattering cut and had a beautiful neckline. It was a little larger than I expected and I think I could have fit in the 4 but they didn't have my size. Typically when there is no stretch in the fabric, dresses will fit snug on my body but this dress still fit a little loose. Overall, I loved it.

Classy Dress

The dress was a good length. Not very short if you are looking for a sexier edge. The bust of the dress is flattering and adds a sexy edge to the dress. The color and fabric is very unique and beautiful. Tailored well but fit a little big.

Loved the dress, and the accessories!

I wore this to my senior formal. Unfortunately my first dress didn't work out, so I had to pick this one at the last minute. For reference I'm about 5'3" and about 110 lb. I ordered the 0 and the 2. I wore the 0 and it was bigger than I expected, I probably could've and would've preferred a 00 for a more fit look but I still loved the dress. I got tons of compliments on it! It's definitely a tad low cut, and since I'm kind of small in the chest, it had the tendency to flare out in certain positions, but not a big deal. Overall very pleased!

Pretty dress!

I wore this dress recently to a friend's wedding. I really liked the color of the dress, it was very pretty. It also fit well, but I had to wear the 00, the 0 was too big. My only very minor complaints were that the dress wrinkled easily, and it didn't look great after sitting through the ceremony and dinner. Also, the fabric didn't quite lay flat across the chest, so it gapped a bit, but not enough for my bra to show, or to be uncomfortable with it.

Beautiful fabric and design- very classy and chic

Loved the dress, but wish I had ordered a size down. I'm a 6 90% of the time, so I was super surprised when the 6 felt a little baggy throughout the rib cage. The 8 I ordered for my backup size was worthless.

Wore this to my graduation!

Very pretty dress- I received a ton of compliments. However, I kept tugging at the top because it felt like it was falling off all day. It ran VERY large. Thankfully, i ordered the 00 as a backup. I'm usually a true extra-small so I was hesitant about renting at all. The color/sheen is so beautiful and it's just conservative and mature enough for an event like graduation. Overall, I'm pleased that I chose to wear this dress, but beware that it runs very large!

Loved this dress!

I loved this dress, I felt beautiful and received tons of complements. It does run a little large- I normally wear a 2, which fit well enough, but in the end I opted for the 0 because it fit better in the waist. The dress does have a beautiful plunging neckline and shows off a good amount of cleavage. However, I didn't feel like I was going to fall out of the dress. You also can wear a normal bra with it. Overall, it is a very comfortable dress- I had no problems sitting, eating, and dancing in it. I was sad to have to send it back.

Favorite dress! So flattering and classy!

I got so many compliments on this dress. I was disappointed that the seam at the busy was a little damaged but that didn't stop me from wearing it! I danced all night in this dress. Didn't want to take it off. It is not fitted in the hips, and I'm smaller in the bust so I sized down. It is lower cut than I expected, but not too revealing.

Great Dress. Cute Cut.

I love this dress. You can tell from photo exactly how it will fit. It is a great traditional cut much like all Kate Spade. The fabric isn't flexible so the dress runs a smidge small the chest.

Didn't fit correctly on my athletic body

I was stressed out about renting a dress, and for a good reason I suppose. I rented a size 2 and 4, and neither fit. I ended up without a dress :( I have an athletic body in the sense that I have small waist, narrow hips, and toned back and shoulders. The dresses were too big in the stomach and too small around the rib cage. So, if you have a similar figure, I would not recommend. I did like that the front of the dress at the stomach was cut so that it did not puff out - it lay flat.

Great night with friends on NYE!

Perfect dress. Maybe a little bit low-cut and tight in the bust area. I went up a size from what I normally wear. I was really happy with how fast RTR got me the next size for the next day! Love the color.

Beautiful, fun dress! I received a lot of compliments on this one -- great for a wedding.

Ran a little small IMO. Took some maneuvering getting the girls settled in. It was actually more purple in color than I had anticipated, but that wasn't a bad thing at all.

Too tight around the ribs, couldn't wear :(

Super cute, much more gold in color than I was expecting, but still nice, light but sturdy fabric. But I couldn't wear it - even though I got the larger size in my range (I'm usually a 2-4 and picked the 4) I couldn't zip it up ! The zipper is on the side, and i am too large around the chest (even though I'm only a 34B) - it was less a breast and more of a chest/ribs size issue. I tried with no bra and no luck. Definitely go up a couple sizes!

Not for me.

This is a really pretty dress, but it hit me in all the wrong places and made my hips look wide. Also, the pattern on the brocade wasn't particularly flattering in the stomach area. The fabric was fairly wrinkled an d since part of the wedding we were attending would be outside, it didn't seem like the best option. This was my back up dress, and luckily my first choice was great and I wore it happily instead.

A Perfect Fit!

I wore this dress to a cousin's wedding over the July 4th weekend and could not stop obsessing over it from the moment I zipped it out of the garment bag. It was perfectly appropriate for a guest to wear to a cocktail or semi-formal wedding, and the material had such a pretty shimmer to it, which is hard to tell by looking at the photo. The fit is very true to size, and length hit me around my knee. The bust area felt comfortable, and I was able to wear a standard bra with it, although you could also do strapless in case you are worried about the straps showing. My only concern was that the fabric did tend to wrinkle as the night went on, but who cares about that when you are too busy dancing? ;) On that note, the material was comfortable, allowed for breathing room on a hot summer night, and had some movement to it. I received compliments all evening as it felt like it was just enough to feel special, but not to take over the bride's beauty & deserving attention! Definite recommendation to anyone considering.

RaimeeJuly 16, 2013
Hey I'm renting it for a wedding next weekend. What color shoes did you wear? Trying to decide what would look good! Thanks!
SheridanJuly 16, 2013
Hi Raimee! I wore nude high heel sandals with the dress. I didn't want the delicacy of the dress to be overwhelmed by the shoe!

LOVED IT!

The dress was very comfortable. It had a pretty shine in the sunlight, and it also worked for the reception party! I received many compliments and would totally order this dress again! Definitely recommend for a wedding. I wore it with the Kate Spade necklace in the picture on the model and it looked very nice together.

You look gorgeous in that dress! What shoes did you pair with it?

Thank you Rachael! I wore nude wedges since the dress had tints of gold and silver, the nude complimented everything best!

What a beautiful dress! I got so many compliments and the cut was very flattering.

The fit was great, though it wasn't as curve hugging as it appears on the model (they probably pin it behind her lower back to give that long torso look). But the fabric was thick and forgiving. My only complaint is that it wrinkles easily, so after a long car drive to the wedding it wasn't as fresh as starting out. It's a little more purple in person but still very beautiful!

Beautiful, Sexy, Fun Dress!

I wore this dress to a friends wedding and absolutely loved it. It was shimmery and pretty, and did a great job showing off the cleavage. The material is not super heavy so it was comfortable to wear all night. It did get a little wrinkled after sitting for a while but that didn't take away how nice the dress is. I would definitely wear it again!
