I ended up not wearing it for my event.
It was really snug, so a bit small for the size. I liked the design, I wasn't sure how it would look on me and my arms are a little bigger and it sort of accentuated them at the same time reducing my breast area. I liked it but wasn't sure if sitting and moving in it would be an issue so decided not to wear it for my event.

The perfect dress!
I LOVED this dress! I wore it to Steeplechase in Atlanta and it fit perfectly. It is so colorful and I got a lot of compliments on it. The only gripe I have is that I only received one size of the dress when I ordered two. Luckily it fit perfectly, so it wasn't a big deal...just hoping that mixup doesn't happen again, as this was my first RTR order and I am due to receive another one tomorrow. Highly recommend this dress!

Beautiful, perfect fit.
I normally wear a 6. I ordered a 6 and a 4 just in case. The 6 fit PERFECTLY.

Elegant and colorful dress
This dress is super comfortable, the color is beautiful and It has a high quality fabric. I Didn't wear It because It was too large. Probably the size 2 or 0 would be perfect. I am looking forward to ordering this style again in the right size.

Gorgeous and fit like a glove!
I rented this dress for my bridal shower and I received a compliment from everyone person that walked in the door. I loved the patters and bright colors. This dress was my favorite rental thus far, and I've rented several from RTR. I was so sad when I had to send it back!

Tropical chic
Bright, fun, bold, and flattering. This dress was the perfect pic for a Kate Spade themed bridal shower. I highly recommend. I paired with nude heels and simple stud earrings with a black and white bracelet. No need to accessorize though, this dress makes its own statement!

Great colors and completely professional for a work event!
Fit was small around the waist, but had a nice stretch to it! It was a little worn looking when it arrived, but photographed really well and looked great. Note that the dark color looks black online, but it's a dark brown!

Colorful comfortable dress with playful peplum
This dress is colorful and vibrant with a playful peplum. The dark shade is a very deep brown as stated in other reviews. Fits beautifully at functions like summer weddings. The material was substantial but not too warm. Well constructed and true to size. Easy to dance in. A keeper.

Colors really pop! Very comfortable and fun
I wore this to a "tropical chic attire" summer wedding and the vibrant colors were perfect. The peplum flare was more noticeable than on the model, and may not work on people hoping to minimize hips. I thought it was fun though and the fabric was forgiving.

Great dress, great fit.
The fabric is a little thick, but still breathable. I wore this to a September wedding in Pittsburgh and was fine the whole time. This is not my usual "preppy" style, so I made it a little edgier with some black booties. I received compliments all night, and the bright color was amazing. I probably would not rent this dress again since it is not my usual style, but I liked it a lot for one night!

I loved this dress for a work event. It's a nice take on a sheath, and the peplum is gorgeous without being over the top. Great option for a more conservative event!

I rented this dress for a rehearsal dinner in Key West. I thought it was the perfect combo of dressy with a fun print. The dress fit well, was true to size and was comfortable all night long.

Beautiful colors, vibrant
Fit: perfect even for my short torso. Also fit my bust without sizing up. Length on me was to the knee. Fabric: unlined but cotton material is structured and weighty enough. The pattern hides wrinkles well. I'm loving the Kate Spade collection at RTR!

LOVED this fun dress!
ordered 4 for backup but went with the 2 - fits true to size and very flattering. Such a bright and fun dress! I wore this to a pageant and got so many compliments! Wore with nude open-toe heels bc the background of the dress is brown so keep that in mind!

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!

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.
