I wanted to wear something special to my daughter's college graduation. Perfect and stylish!
I received the wrong dress 2 days before I was leaving town. My husband told me just to go buy something off the rack. He just didn't understand about RTR. I called and not only did RTR profusely apologize, but Erin helped me find an upgraded look that would fit my 47 year old pear shaped body type. This dress was new to them so I could only go by their recommendations. I also chose a clutch to match. The dress was on my door the next day. My husband was stunned that a company would do something like that (I wasn't.) I felt great and more importantly my daughter was very surprised that her mom was "in style." This dress fit wonderfully for me. It hid my muffin top. This one is a winner!

Would rent again! Highly recommend!
I wore this for my daughter's Senior Recital. It was PERFECT! I ordered a size 8 because I have very broad shoulders and other reviewers said it ran small. I usually wear a 4 or 6, depending on designer. I'm 5'11 with a large bust, and thin waist. This dress fit very comfortably and had just the right amount of stretch in it. It even made me look a little curvy. There was no pulling or any other type of awkwardness. I'm thinking I could have worn a size 6 which is what I originally tried to order but it wasn't available. The colors are vibrant and it is very well made. I unfortunately had to wear flats with the dress because I just had back surgery and the heels I wore the night before made my back hurt, but the flats worked great. I got TONS of compliments on this dress. Even my husband liked it and he is very particular.

This Kate Spade dress was the perfect outfit for a rehearsal dinner I attended this weekend!
This dress fit very well! Depending on the designer, I usually wear a size 0 or 2. The fabric hugs your body a little, but stretches some. I did not have issues with it being too tight in the bust or through the hips. I would order your usual size and a size up just in case. Overall the fabric is very light and makes the dress comfortable to wear. It is easy to move and sit in. The peplum adds wonderful detail without being too over the top. This is the perfect dress if you are looking for a fun pattern and something comfortable to wear!

If your bigger on top...
I ordered the size 4 and 6. The 4 was too tight on top and the 6 was too big through the middle and bottom, so I didn't wear either size. If it fit, I would have been happy with the material and color, it was beautiful. My measurements are 35.5" bust, 29" waist and 38.5" hips. This was my first time ordering and the process was super easy and convenient.

Bold color and great fit for the right occasion!
I did not wear this dress for my work event. I wasn't even suppose to rent it. My Rachel Roy back-up dress was not available and I was sent this one instead. I loved the peplum style; it looked great on my curvy figure. The only reason I wore the Trina Turk, Walk Like An Egyptian dress was because the color was subtler. I felt like I would stick out at my work event with the bold color and design. If I rented the dresses for a different event I would have had a tough decision to make!

Perfect spring/ summer wedding dress
Rented this dress for a wedding in Louisiana. I loved the pattern and the fit was true to size. Was able to eat and dance comfortably. Loved the little peplum detail. Would definitely recommend!

If your larger in the bust, this fits true to size, but the material around the waist could be a little more snug.

Bold print gets noticed in a crowd
The colors are vibrant and the cut is classic. It fit well and was not too tight in the hips, as many sheaths tend to be with my body shape. The quality of the fabric is very thick, although it does crease and wrinkle slightly when sitting.

Amazing dress, great color and perfect fit. A winner!
This dress was awesome. After receiving one that didn't fit (too big on the top), I called and they sent me this replacement by noon the next day and my weekend was saved. Perfect floral for an outdoor bridal shower and fancy enough with a pair of stilettos for a semi-formal wedding. The peplum is adorable and the whole thing is very flattering. The only con was that the fabric is a bit stiff, but it also helped keep the shape on a very hot day. Highly recommend!

Weddings are always a fun time, especially with great company!
Great dress! The fabric was a little different/more stiff than I expected it to be, but the dress was flattering (probably on every shape) and the detailed pattern looked great in person and photographed well.

Really comfortable dress with a great fit. However, the pattern is a little busy.
Really comfortable dress with a great fit. Perfect for Pear or Hourglass shaped women. I very rarely wear bold prints, but I thought I would try something new. I think in the end the print was just too much for me. It wasn't quite my style and maybe made me look a little old.

Super fun dress for a SoCal Wedding!
Dress is super cute and is perfect for a wedding. The dress is bright and colorful so if you're not afraid to wear color, this dress is an awesome pick! I saw most people paired the dress with nude heals, but I wore black heals as they were a bit more summery looking and I was renting a black clutch too. I was surprised by how light-weight the fabric was (unlike other Kate Spade dresses I've rented before in the past). The dress runs pretty much true to size and is an awesome rental! The condition of the dress looked brand new too.

Bright print is a standout!
I really wanted to love this dress, I really did. It runs very small. I'm normally a true size 0 and couldn't even get the zipper halfway up in that size. Thankfully I had a size 2 as a backup! This is coming from a girl with zero curves so beware. I first wore this dress to a dinner date with my husband and then the following day to Mass. I have to say, when worn with black tights and a black turtleneck underneath, it's a very mod look that I loved. But the material is rather flimsy and best for a summer affair, not ideal to rent this dress in February. I didn't feel beautiful in it so no pictures. Such a shame because usually Kate Spade is a go to winner.

Lots of compliments! Gorgeous bright pattern
I wore this dress to my sister's bridal shower. I ended up wearing the 2, and noticed that it was a little snug under the arms. Otherwise it was really cute and I would def rent it again- I received lots of compliments! It's a gorgeous pattern and the colors are very bright and fun.

A little matronly and stiff
I rented this dress for a wedding, but ended up wearing my backup. The material is very stiff, though lightweight, and I felt the cut was aging - I could see someone's mom wearing this, but it wasn't ideal for me (in my mid-twenties).

I loved the stretch of the material and the pattern. I got tons of compliments!
I'm constantly between a size 10 & 12, and ended up wearing the 12 to be more comfortable. I'm 5'7 and I loved where the dress hit me. The bold pattern was great because you didn't need extravagant jewelry - the dress itself is a statement piece. It also was very forgiving. I took a star away because the slit was pretty high in the back and the dress got very wrinkled (I sat for a total of an hour - 30 at the ceremony and 30 eating dinner).

Stand-out dress!
I wore this to a wedding in Florida with a lot of bright colors. I almost always wear a 6 but went with the 8 on this dress as the 6 was very tight and the peplum waist didn't sit as smoothly as the 8. Very fun dress that isn't the style I would normally buy--perfect to rent for one time, though! Classic cut but super fun colors.

Fun spring dress
I am between a 6 and 8 and did not get the chance to try the 6, but the 8 fit fine. It was not too tight, but not loose. Little details: the peplum is small, there are snaps to hold your bra in place and the background color of the dress is actually dark brown! I still wore black shoes with it, but would have been nice to know this detail before.

I normally wear size 8 in KS, so there was no issue with fit. I got this for Mothers Day luncheon but also wore it to church. The silhouette of the dress was very classic but having a bright fun pattern made it special.

Decade birthday.
I wanted a very special eye-catching dress to celebrate my 60th birthday. This dress was absolutely perfect For the occasion. I'm usually a size 6 to 8 but right now a bit on the chubby side of 8 and the 8 was a good fit. I only had one minor issue with the dress. I thought the little peplum skirt was too short and flared out too much. I wore a wide black belt which flattened it down a bit. My husband also agreed that the dress looked better with the black belt because it broke up the very bold design. I felt like a million dollars in this dress. My third time with RTR and I'm hooked! I may never buy another dress.

The dress was true to size and the colors were amazing for the occasion!
The make up is mainly cotton so it is great to be worn to a spring/summer function. The colors were very vibrant and fit perfect. If you consider yourself to be "hippy" the dress does tend to flare a little at the bottom versus a pencil fit after several hours of being worn. It was a great choice for a wedding that took place outside!

I can usually wear a 12 in most dresses on here but this dress was tight, especially across my ribs.
The actually dress was not tight but underneath my chest and across by ribs was suffocating. Did not wear. Pretty print though.

The bright print really pops
I wore this adorable dress to a preppy horse show event and received lot of compliments. The bright colors really stood out in a sea of pastels. The peplum is a fun touch. I usually wear a 2 or 4 depending on the designer. I went with the two since it was more fitted through the waist and hips. The 2 was a little more snug on my 34D chest and the armholes were a little small, but not enough to be uncomfortable for very long. I'm 5'3" and the dress hit just above my knees. Just note that the background color is dark brown, not black.

Fun, bright dress for a friend's rehearsal dinner!
The dress was super fun and bright... definitely stood out for a summer party / rehearsal dinner! The skirt rides up a little over the course of the night, but nothing that couldn't be managed. Definitely have to wear a strapless dress because straps will show on the shoulders. Not my favorite dress I've ordered, but super fun and different from the black dresses I'm used to wearing! (also sorry for the hideous pose... the only one we took that showed below my bust!)
