Classic Kate
This was my first RTR rental and I sadly ordered a size too big. It runs really big in length even the sleeves were long (and I'm a curvy 5'9"!) I still give it 4 stars because its an adorable dress. Its a little maternal with the flair at the sleeves and the black and white motif, but I belted it and wore it on a Sunday afternoon around the City and received so many compliments! I cant wait to rent it again, maybe a size or 2 smaller and wear it at night with a popping red lip!

Really comfortable, cute and easy dress!
Loved this dress. I wore it to a bridal shower, but it could probably be worn somewhere more formal also.. It runs large and is a little longer than i expected it to be. I'm usually either a 12 or 14 and this dress was definitely a bit big. Wish I would have rented a size down, but it still worked great. Loved the squiggle polka dot pattern, the pretty ruffle sleeves, and the keyhole opening in the back. Great dress!

Ran Large, no shape
I had high hopes for this dress since I wanted something fun with sleeves. It looked terrible on me, did not have any shape and the length was too long. I am a frequent renter from RTR, and this is the first dress that I have gotten that did not work out. Fortunately, the event I was attending was in NYC and I was able to return it and rent something else in time-RTR has outstanding customer service.

Cute, but a little boxy
Wore this dress for a recent wedding. I tried it on and thought it was too boxy, way beyond just loose. I then tried it with a skinny black belt and wound up loving it!

I felt it was the perfect dress for an engagement party. It was also comfortable all night long....
I absolutely LOVED this dress. I wore it for my best friends engagement party with black heels and a hot pink clutch and pearls. I ordered the size 4 and 6, I ended up wearing the 4. I probably could have worn a 2, it runs a little large.

Cute but big
I wore this to the club with my family for Thanksgiving. I received a lot of great compliments on the dress! The material is really nice but in hindsight I wish I would have had a skinny gold blet to singe the waist. I went with the smaller of the two sizes I ordered and probably could have even gone down to a zero... it's been years since I've worn a zero!! Great dress for a luncheon or family function but not sure I'd wear again.

Easy to where
I wore this dress for a holiday show I was working at and I thought it was comfy and easy to wear. The size does run large so wear a size smaller than your usual size. At first I couldn't understand why the price was so high for such a simple dress, but then realized it's silk.

I rented this dress for my friends rehearsal dinner! I loved it but definitely could have gone a size smaller. I ended up belting it, which looked cute. It was a good length. I would rent it again:)

Great choice for my company Christmas Party-- loved it and received SO many compliments!
I pretty consistently wear a size 6, ordered the 6 but it does run a bit large. I took the advice of some other commenters & wore it with a skinny black patent leather belt,matching shoes and ended up loving it! If you don't want to belt it, then I'd suggest ordering one size smaller. Overall great dress that I'd definitely wear it again.

It was a bit big so I wore the smaller size but overall I really liked it.

Loved this dress!
Great dress for date night or party! Loved the way it fit and felt. Paired it with a cute belt to pull it in around the waist. Usually wear a 6 and ended up wearing the 4 as it was more flattering. Definitely recommend this dress but order down for your extra size.

Fun dress for a semi-formal event, super-comfortable!
I rented this as a backup style for my engagement party, and luckily the original dress fit, as I ended up wearing this to a baby shower the next day. It was absolutely perfect for a daytime party, and was so incredibly comfortable, I didn't want to take it off. I loved how the sleeves added a conservative look while still being fun and party-ready.

Cute belted!
This was my backup dress, so I only had one size to work with. I could have probably worn a size smaller, but with a belt, it worked! I loved the fun sleeves and it was super comfortable. I am curvy, so this dress worked for me.

Perfect for hosting an afternoon baby shower!
This dress is so cute and comfortable, it takes all the focus off worrying about how you look (cause you look great!) so you can focus on having a great time. It definitely runs large. I ordered a 6 (my usual size) with a 4 back up. If I'd had a 2 I probably would've worn it, so be aware when ordering. Got loads of compliments!

Beautiful, fun dress!
I love this dress but unfortunately I didn't get to wear it. I usually wear a 4 and sometimes a 2 depending on the cut. I ordered a 6/4 because that was the smallest size offered. The 4 was way to big. I probably had 4-5 inches of fabric at the waist. It was too much fabric to even belt. Plus it was way too long. No need to try on the 6! Great dress though if you can find your size!

Fun and Comfortable
This dress is awesome. I wanted to keep it. Wore it to an office Christmas party in San Francisco and it was perfect. It runs big so even if you wear a 2 or 4 in kate spade I bet you'll be able to pull off the 0. So cute and comfortable. Didn't ride up too high when I sat either. Great dress.

Fun dress
Loved this dress- perfect for a more casual family wedding. Runs large- I'm usually a standard size 6, but even the 4 was a bit roomy. Looked fine once I belted it, but if I ordered it again I'd go with a size 2.

It's a LBD with a TWIST!
After reading the reviews, I requested my size and a size smaller. I am glad I did because the smaller size fit perfectly! I can see why many of the ladies want to add a belt. If I had only recieved my regular size it would have needed one, as it looked boxy and big. But, if you are going for the look on the model, then try a size smaller than you would normally wear! It was a great evening and I felt comfortable and beautiful in my little Kate Spade number! Thanks, RTR!!! I'm hooked!

Loved this dress and all things Kate Spade. Very comfortable! Perfect dress for a shower.
I normally wear size 6 but the 4 fit well and even had some room to spare. Definitely runs a little large. It doesn't give you much of a shape, but I was OK with that as I wanted something more on the comfortable side. The sleeves are lots of fun! The polka dots are scribbles, not solid circles.

This was a super cute dress for a church wedding, not too short but not grandma-ish either.
I found that it seemed too big and almost felt as though I was wearing a huge shirt. The neckline was very flattering but conservative enough for a family or church environment. Length was perfect for my height.

The dress was great but did run a little big. I wore it in my regular size but wish I would have gone a size down. I ended up using a belt to help give it some shape.

LOVE this dress
I usually wear a size 6 but the size 4 fit perfectly, even with my somewhat full hips and smaller bust. Love the fun sleeves, the fun pattern, and the casual elegance of this dress.

Fits a little strange--looks best on as a casual shift vs a party dress
I actually didn't rent this for myself. I used the 25 dollar second dress to get my sister something to wear. She is 5'7'', 145 pounds. I wanted to get her something loose and shifty because she had a baby a while ago. Because she's curvy, I thought this would work. It didn't sadly. It needed to be tighter around the middle to give her shape. She was very self conscious in in. I tried it on, even though it is a larger size than I wear, and it actually looked kinda cute all big and flowy. I would rock it with some leather leggings maybe, or even jeggings. It's well made, and very cute on the hanger, but it looks best on someone... I don't know how to say it nicely... "straighter", w/o woman curves :-)

This was perfect for my best friend's baby shower. Just what I needed for the day event.
It ran a bit large but it worked. I could have worn the 2 in this dress, however, it would have been too short

great simple black dress for a family occasion
I'm 5'2 and the length was good. Definitely go down a size. I probably could have gone done two sizes to a size four in the stomach/hip region but it would have been too tight across the bust.

Perfect!
Wore this dress for 2 daytime parties and then switched the jewelry & shoes out to transition to evening attire for a bachelorette. It looked fab & I had compliments all night. I absolutely loved it and thought it 'stood out' as it is very unique. Also, I received a 0 & a 2. Didn't even try the 2 on; 0 was a perfect fit. Only regret is that I don't have any pictures, but will be renting again!!

This was a great option for a dinner or even a work event. It's an easy fit and very comfortable. Though it runs a little large, if you have fuller hips consider sizing up for a shift dress look!

In a sea of little black dresses, I had this number.
The dress was short, but forgiving in the midsection. I didn't even notice it had a zipper until I had taken it on and off a couple of times. The detail at the sleeves and the back made it fun.

I just had a baby and wanted something that would be flattering but fun for a bridal shower I had to attend. This dress was great...just the right length and fit (maybe a touch big). I received numerous compliments. Perfect for a work or family event.

Pulled together for the tailgate!
This was a great dress for our schools tailgate - the theme being to black out the stadium. Easy to wear, great for running around and wearing all day without looking worn-in or tired. I felt very classy with the sleeves and slight ruffle, but not too over the top because the scribble dots made it fun and less fussy.

I loved loved loved this dress.
I wish this dress had been the only one I ordered, so I didn't feel like I wasted so much money. This dress was one of four and it was my favorite. Maybe because it fit so well, hid the yucky parts without even needing any Spanx or similar. Elegant, fun and classic. Those are little squiggly doodle like dots by the way, not polka dots. Looks great on a busty figure.

Unwearable....for all the wrong reasons
This dress is pretty, sweet and would have been fine if it didn't reek of cleaning chemicals. It was totally unwearable. After leaving it to air out for a couple of hours and no change, I packed it up and resent it to RTR. I wasn't going to try and cover it with perfume because that would just make it worse for the next person. Oh and what appear to be big dots, are actually little swirls of cream color...sort of an abstract circle on a solid color. Wish I could have worn it but there was no way.
