Overall great dress I was thoroughly pleased
Fit was true to size - a bit tighter in the bust as I am larger there - but nothing unusual - really comfortable dress that feels casual but looks dressy - I wore it for a Rehearsal Dinner for a wedding and it was perfect

Beautiful dress; flattering
I thought this dress was flattering and very pretty. I got a lot of compliments on it and I'm glad I went with it - it was my backup after my first pick's backup size wasn't returned to RTR on time. Like others, I did notice that the waist/belt area was pretty snug, and I almost went up to the size 6, but it didn't look as nice, so I stuck with the 4. I was still able to dance and move around fine, but I did feel a little uncomfortable by the end of the night after eating dinner at a wedding. The snug belt area (not adjustable) is the only reason i didn't give this dress a five. Overall, it was a great RTR experience!

This dress was WAY too small. 1 star because at least it was cute.
couldn't zip the dress up. Definitely need to order 1 size up or even 2 sizes up.

Can I just buy all the Kates?
KS and me seem to have a love affair. They fit my little frame and give me the hips I wasn't blessed with. This particular dress was a bit lower cut in the front than some of the rest, but I still made it work for clinic given the conservative yet stylish nature.

The zipper was a little difficult to pull up over the belted area, so you may need some assistance!

I wore this dress for my graduation and loved it.
I found this dress to be a bit small around my rib cage, which is odd for me since my waste is on the smaller side. I loved this dress but would recommend getting a backup size , one size up, instead of one down just in case.

Fabulous for a summer bridal shower!
I absolutely loved this dress and got so many compliments on it. This was my first time renting from RTR and I could not be happier! I've turned about 10 more women onto using RTR as well after I told them about my experience. The dress fit perfectly. I was a little concerned after reading previous reviews about the tightness through the midsection, but I personally felt incredibly comfortable and I am by no means skinny. The bust was also more comfortable than I thought it was going to be. I didn't feel overexposed in any way even with a larger bust line in the dress. The best part was the pockets! How can anyone not love a dress with pockets?!

Great for Memorial Day!
I rented this for a weekend trip to Napa to wear during the day to the wineries. It was perfect and very comfortable. It was shorter on me as I am 6'2" but I was still able to wear. It has pockets and the belt is attached and strictly decorative. It is a thick cotton so it keeps a nice shape.

Cute dress
Like this but did not work for me. I needed this for a church event. It runs small but I find most Kate Spades dresses do and even the six was snug in the bust. I typically wear s size 4 in most designers but go up a size in Kate Spade. Also it is a little but low but can be fixed with a Cami.

Perfect and classy for graduation!
This dress was not my first choice and it was sent as a backup but I ended up loving it! The colors were bright and bold and the fabric was a thick cotton (but breathable). The dress fit like a glove and I received many compliments. It was in great shape and seemed like it had only been worn a few times. The bust area was a bit stretched out but it wasn't terrible. The dress is extremely classy and I felt amazing in it. It was so hard to return.

Belt size is 2x smaller than dress size!!! Plan Accordingly!
My normal size is a 6 and I usually get the 6 and 8 for dresses that run true to size, which all of the reviews indicated. There was absolutely NO WAY I was going to get the 6 or the 8 to zip at the belt part of the dress. Everywhere else, yes, the zipper would have zipped nicely. However, the part where the belt is, is so tight it left a two inch gap. Definitely a bad review from me...gorgeous dress though. It was a real bummer.

Best Rental so far!
This dress fit great - It was very comfortable to wear and got lots of compliments. I had no issues with the size of the top or fit of the bottom. It is a very lovely color and I felt like I could wear it for both a day or a night event - I just changed the accessories and shoes. Looked lovely with a silk wrap.

Very cute
Great dress, wore it to brunch for a friend's birthday and to church and dinner with family after. Was stopped several times by strangers to ask about it. Great colors. Only thing I didn't like was the weird pleats above the bow on your boobs.

Elegant and fun at the same time
Love, love this dress. Unfortunately I did not get to wear it to the intended event because of a slip up with the delivery location, but when I did finally receive it, I tried it on for fun, and it was just fabulous, so tasteful and elegant but fun and sweet at the same time. It could be dressed up for a wedding, but also could definitely be dressed down for a less formal event. Definitely on my list of possible future rentals if the right event arises again to wear it!

The waist was very tight, but one size larger was too big in the bust. If you have a larger chest this might be too low cut.

Delightful summer party dress
I wore this to a daytime birthday party held at a restaurant on the river, so I loved the nautical feel this dress added to the occasion. The comfortable cotton fabric and warm vibrant color added to the pleasure of wearing this dress. I've got broad shoulders, so the upper back was a little tight. If I rent again, I'll go with the 8, since the fitting the hip is irrelevant (full skirt) and the waist can be adjusted a little bit with the sewn-in belt. Length fell to 2-3" above my knees.

Fun dress!
I loved the pockets and the dress. The dress is pretty narrow in the rib cage, so be aware of that. I tend to wear a much larger dress size than pant size because of my ribs, so definitely go up a size if you have this body type.

I have never gotten so many compliments on a dress - ever!!!! Gorgeous colors, awesome fit!
Definitely fitted in the waist (belt does not adjust) however, not uncomfortable. I zipped it up and never had to fuss with it or worry about the dress for the rest of the night. HUGE pockets which were a big bonus!!!!! Not even visible to anyone, skirt was nice and full. Held everything, I didn't carry a bag!

Perfect bridal shower dress!
I did not rent this for my sister's bridal shower, but I ended up with this dress after the dress I had rented was damaged by the prior renter. RTR was so helpful and kind when the stylist pick they sent me in place of the dress that was damaged did not work at all. They overnighted this dress in both sizes to me. I could not be happier with what could have been a disastrous situation. The waistline is tight, as others have noted. The size 6 fit in the waist comfortable, but it was too large in the chest/shoulders. The size 4 was tight in the waist, but fit perfectly everywhere else. This dress is perfect for larger chested ladies. I am a size 32DD normally, and am currently breastfeeding....so I have cleavage to spare. This dress allowed me to wear a normal bra, and showed some cleavage but I felt covered and supported. Also - the cut of this dress is super flattering. The belt is at your ribs, and then it flares out nicely, hiding any belly/baby bump you may want to. I felt comfortable, super lady-like, and got SO MANY compliments on this dress. Everyone asked me where I got it.

Couldn't wear this dress.
I could not zip this dress up past my waist. I tried a 4 and a 6. I fit fine into two other Kate Spade dresses in a size 4. It runs really tight around the torso.

Tons of Compliments! Great Dress!
I ordered this dress for a wedding at a sailing club. I thought the white and navy stripe brought a nautical feel to the dress. The fabric was a little stiff but not uncomfortable. It fit like a glove! I was also able to wear a normal bra with it. Which was nice since I usually wear dresses that need strapless or backless bras. The only complaint is that the zipper got stuck in the fabric and took a team of 3 people to get it zipped without ripping anything! Other than that, it was a great dress! I got tons of compliments and felt amazing all night!

Great Dress, LOTS of great compliments.
I loved this dress! I ordered a 4 and a 6. The six fit a little smaller than a usual six. It was a little hard getting it zipped up, especially around the bow part of the waist. I couldn't wear a bra because it wouldn't zip up all the way. I loved that it had pockets as well. Overall I LOVED it!

Dress runs big in chest, small in waist
This dress runs VERY small in the waist, but is also really weird proportionally between the chest and waist. I ordered a 4 (my usual size) and a 2. I couldn't zip the 4 up past my waist and had to have a 6 overnighted to me. When the 6 came, it baaaarely zipped up over my waist. But even stranger, there was a ton of extra room in the chest and shoulders. Like, three inches of extra fabric. Basically, I was squeezed into a dress that was clearly too small for me and it was so big up top that my girls fell out every time I moved. I am so, so bummed out. Clearly it's just not the right dress for me, since it would need to be radically altered to come close to fitting me all over. I will say the fabric is great quality and all three dresses I received were in great condition...so...there's that.

I ended up not being able to wear the dress because it was too tight in the middle and both the 4 and the 6 made me feel like I wasn’t able to breath.

Perfect dress for an outdoor wedding.
I was mistress of ceremonies for an outdoor wedding and this dress was perfect for it. It fit like a glove. It allowed me to move around quickly wasn't restricting. I am pear shaped and it fit my top half perfectly, while hiding the bottom half. I am also really tall and it hit just right above my knees. Any shorter and it would have been too short. The dress arrived and looked like it had never been worn. Wish I didn't have to send it back.

This dress was perfect for a beachy, nautical, summer wedding. Received so many compliments!
Fit was perfect and very true to size. Material is a bit stiff, so it was great for a breezy day because it stayed put. All around, amazing.

Very classic dress. The color and fit will look great on anyone!
The waist is very narrow in this dress. I always wear a 2-4 in dress sizes, but the 4 in this dress was still too small in the waist and I had to fight to zip it!
