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.

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 this dress! It was hard for me to send it back! I ordered a 2 and a 4 and wore the 2 however it runs true to size. I purchased a belt to go with the dress to give myself a waist. The dress is loose fitting. The belt was the right choice! I added some red lipstick and I was good to go! I received so many compliments throughout the night. Just a great dress!

I am obsessed with this dress and did not want to take it off! I wore it to a tailgate party on Georgia-Florida football weekend. The dress was such an easy fit and very flattering. I considered belting it, but I actually liked it better hanging loosely. The dress hit a little below mid-thigh. I wore it with cowboy boots and a bauble necklace, but you could easily dress it up with a pair of colored heels.

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 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.

It's a LBD with a TWIST!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
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!

It's big at the top, snug at the hips. This worked for my pear-shape (with Spanx, of course) because it made the top seem flowy and drew the eyes up. I felt pretty, my husband loved it, and I'm so glad I rented it!

Loved this dress. I had my fingers crossed I could wear the 4 (ego boost) but it was a little too tight up top. I paired it with a red skinny belt and red cowboy boots for a concert. Tons of compliments.

I chose the dress for what I thought would be worn for going out with my husband and friends for birthday drinks. Turns out it was a surprise bday party. The dress was so comfy! I kinda didn't want to take it off. I went with the bigger size just because of the length when I raised my arms. But the 12 fit we'll too. I paired it with my gold glitter peep toes from my wedding. Great experience with RTR!

This dress is a must have - in fact after I returned it, I found it at Bloomindale's and HAD to have it. I wore it to a work conference and was perfect. Perfect silk material, perfect amount of sassy pattern and style, perfect length. The compliments were never ending and I felt so comfortable and cute wearing it. I wore with black tights and flat black boots. LOVE!

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.

Fits a little strange--looks best on as a casual shift vs a party dress

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

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.

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!

I wore this dress to a non-profit's annual fundraiser gala (cocktail attire). I am 4+ months pregnant and in that in between regular and maternity wear phase. This dress was perfect, loved the fabric and shape. I wore it with black tights, tan ankle booties, and a long necklace - a bit funky, but I could see how one could style this dress in a couple different ways.

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.

Wore this dress to host my best friend's bridal tea. Listened to the reviews and ordered down a size (6) and got my true size (8) as my backup. RTR called the day before and said my backup size was unavailable due to damage from a previous renter. I winged it, and although I probably would have been more comfortable in an 8 I received compliments all day long
