A simple, yet dainty dress. The bow on the back adds for a cute detail. Dress can be worn casual (during the day, maybe with a Spring jacket), or dressed up with some statement earrings or a necklace!

I really liked this dress. I do wish I could have rented the 00, but it wasn't available for when I needed it. The size 0 was a little big in the top, but it still worked for me. The back of this dress is adorable, and I loved the full skirt! Perfect dress for a graduation! I definitely recommend this dress, but size down for your backup!!

Fit true to size but was a little large in the bust area. Also it's hard to zip up with out help. Color was the same as shown in photo and the material is thick. This made the dress a little stiff.

I wore this dress to a June wedding at a beachside country club. The dress was super comfy and fun to twirl in. I got a lot of compliments about the bow detailing in the back. It was a subtle fun detail that kept the dress from being too plain. I wore the 4 but could have probably gone with a 2.

I love Kate Spade! This dress is just another reason why!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

A lot of people had mentioned that this dress ran big in the chest. I found that it fit pretty true to size. The neckline is supposed to be a cowl and not lay flat against your chest. After I rented this dress and was awaiting its arrival, I read a review that it had pockets, and I was stoked. It did take me a minute to find the pockets. They are in a hidden front seam kind of like a hoodie pocket. All in all, this dress was great, and it was made by one of my favorite designers. I wore it with the navy and gold piano keys necklace which you can rent right now.

I liked that the dress hits the natural waistline. Very comfortable. A more casual, thicker fabric than it looks like in photos. Was surprised the dress was navy instead of black, but it worked out fine. Overall a totally solid rental, with a super cute bow on the back!

I loved the back of this dress, the color and the fact that it had pockets! I was worried because I could only rent one size but was surprised because at first it seemed big. Parts of the dress was big is spots (bust area) and other spots it was too small (the back). Overall I was happy with the dress but not sure if I would rent it again.

Too Small

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was a replacement dress for an order I placed that ended up falling through. While it was not my first choice, I was still going to try it on and go with it. I ordered a size 4 and 6 as my backup. The size 4 fit my from the waist down but did not fit at all in the upper body area. The same went for the size 6. And in the size 6, there was too much fabric on the lower half for my 5' 1" frame. I even tried the dress on without a bra and it still wouldn't zip up all the way. As far as the dress itself, it was a nice dark, navy blue and the fabric was medium-weight. It also had a slip underneath the dress to keep the fabric in place. The bow detail on the back was a nice touch as well. It's too bad this dress, and the one I originally ordered, did not work out. I feel like this dress is meant for women who are smaller busted and not as athletic in the upper body area.

Pros are definitely the costumer service and the style experts. They were very helpful in helping me get this dress as a replacement for one that was unable to be sent. It arrived on time but just wasn't the right dress for the occasion. I would rent for the fall or winter due to the darker color, thicker fabric, and full lining.

Everyone loves a bow!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is pretty fitted throughout the chest and waist. I wore the larger size and it worked well. It's forgiving in the stomach, butt, legs region, so it's nice to not worry about the fit in those areas. It's a bit longer, which is great for me (I'm 5'10"). People really liked the bow. The material was pretty heavy, and could be informal. It's more matte than the picture makes it seem. But you can dress it up for a wedding.

Wore this dress for my engagement photo session and it looked GREAT in pictures!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I ordered this dress thinking I'd wear a size 2, but was SO happy that I got a 0 as my backup size. The chest area of this dress is definitely a bit big. Normally my stomach and hip area fits into a size 2 or even 4, but for this dress, go for the size of your chest and natural waist - the full skirt covers up the rest which makes you look super tiny! Wished it was like an inch shorter - I'm short so it was a bit long on me. The zipper was a bit difficult to get past the seam, but if you get someone to help you, it's not bad. Also this was my first RTR dress - thought the process was super easy and I'll definitely be renting again!

Fit true to size. A little plain in front so I added my own belt - the necklace was also a RTR and that really dressed it up too. It also came a tad wrinkled, but letting it "air" a little helped. Overall a great choice with a couple snazzy accessories to dress her up!

Adorable but not for large bust girls

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for an outdoor summer wedding. I loved the bow detail. I wasn't able to wear it b/c of the fit in the chest. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with c-cup or larger. The top was so constricting it gave you "pancake" boobs. To fit my chest, I would of needed to size up probably two sizes and then the waist would of been too big. Again, great dress just not for large chest.

Flattering cut and loved the bow detail in the back!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I absolutely love Kate Spade, but having a larger chest, I always have difficulty with her dresses in the top. Others had said that this dress was extremely loose in the chest area, but I also have broad shoulders, so with the high neckline, unforgiving fabric, and the short straps in the back, it felt a little constricting. It was a beautiful dress though, and I love the bow detail in the back. I paired it with a yellow and blue statement necklace and yellow heels for a pop of color.

Cute, flirty, easy to wear!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to a night-time bridal / bachelorette party. The dress is super flattering but might not be great for gals with bigger chests as the top is pretty tight and I am smaller up top. Otherwise, the material is soft (like a thinner denim) and it has pockets (nice to put your cell phone in). I paired this dress with nude heels and the Coastal Ibis Necklace from Slate & Willow - which really accented the dress nicely. The dress would probably also be cute in the fall with tights and a cute jacket.

Classy dressy but needs to be well accessorized to stand out

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I had read that this dress ran small so I ordered my normal size 4 and I sized down. I liked the fit of the size 2 over the size 4 however I could not zipper the smaller size over my chest. Even the 4 was a bit snug in the chest area only but that is what I ended up wearing. If you are large chested I recommend sizing up or being prepared not to wear a bra (because it will be too snug). I ended up having a formal belt that I purchased from Anthropologie that I wore with it to emphasize my waist more. With the full skirt, the dress really does not go in too much in the waist. I wore a belt, big earrings and a bracelet to add more personality to the dress. Lastly I recommend wearing your hair up since the bow in the back is main selling point of the dress.

I got a ton of compliments on this dress! It was perfect for a wedding, simple but still very pretty. I don't have much of a natural waistline, but this dress was great at defining what I have. I'm also not very tall, but this dress was the perfect length! I found it fit between true to size and slightly small, which is why I went with the larger size. There was a little bit of extra fabric at the neck that prevented it from laying flat, but it looked fine. Overall, it was hard to say goodbye to this dress!

I wore it as a bridesmaid dress to a daytime wedding. Fit really well and was really breathable. I'm pretty small chested so it was a tiny bit loose in the top, so it would definitely fit a more endowed woman even though the fabric had little elasticity to it.

As many mentioned, the material is a bit heavy. I wore this to a work gala outside in the summer in California... so I was definitely sweating. However, I liked that the dress hid some of the problem areas, and highlighted the not-so-problem areas. Overall, the dress is adorable- loved the bow in the back- everyone kept commenting on it all night! I would highly recommend it.

The dress was great and fit well. I initially ordered the 10 but ended up wearing the 8 and didn't even try the 10 on. My only issue was that the top did not lay flat on my neckline and was popping out a bit. Overall it was not a big issue. The fabric was a little heavier than I anticipated, but again, not a big deal. A very flattering dress.

Perfect Dancing Dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a fall wedding and I received lots of compliments (and helped spread the news about rent the runway to some new ladies!). I typically wear a size 6, but the size 4 fit a bit better in the chest and waist so I wore a size down. It was perfect for a formal wedding and it was great to dance in. It's different than your standard LBD as it's navy and my best discovery were the two front pockets! Definitely recommend it!

The dress itself was not what I expected. I ordered a size 8 and a size 10. The size 8 did not fit and the larger size did not fit my body in a flattering way. It's definite an "older" look compared to what I was going for.

Cute and comfortable dress was modest but fun for my brothers' graduation!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
This dress looked great with a jean jacket, heeled sandals on indoors, and was fun for an outdoor backyard graduation party with flats. The back is high enough for a strapless bra, I would suggest sizing down-- I'm normally a 4 and could have gone with the 2 as the top had room to spare (32D). The full skirt fell right above the knee (5'2") but was modest and comfortable with pockets for a family party. The fabric is a thick cotton that can get heavy in the summer.

Cute, comfy, understaded for a wedding- wish I had rented it a few months ago (slightly worn out)

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
My first RTR, and it was super easy and convienient for an out of town wedding (just bring shoes and a purse!). The dress was cute, slightly faded though, clearly had been dry cleaned several times. The back was cute, and I wore it with a bold necklace that helped spruce up the front. I own another Kate Spade dress that is a 0 (which is REALLY tight) so I knew better than to get a 0. It was a tad big in the chest, but that's common for me :) Overall, I liked the dress and was happy with my choice.

This dress didn't work out for me.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress did not flatter my body type at all, even once I added a belt around the waist. The high cut top puckered in weird places, and the excess volume in the skirt made me look larger than I liked. The fabric was also wayyy too casual for the office party I was attending - this would be a great dress for brunch, or an outdoor picnic, not an office holiday party or formal event. But, I will always love Kate Spade, even though this dress didn't work out :-)

Cute dress, but boxy

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large

Rented and wore this dress for a friend's wedding rehearsal...after I made some adjustments to the top of the dress. Everything except the neckline fit just right, but for some reason there was all kinds of room up top (which is usually not the case for me). I'd be hesitant to rent this dress again in the future.

Cute Dress, More like an apron.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
This dress is adorable by concept and design. Not a good summer dress as it is thick material. The bow back is very flattering. The only down side is in the bodice it was very loose fitting and at times reminded me of an apron. Another awkward part to the dress, the pockets were in line with your stomach instead of your waist. Other than that the fit was nice, VERY CUTE when paired with a belt and necklace, or scarf. It's SUPER versatile which is why I scored it higher than I should.

I didn't actually get to wear this dress.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Unfortunately I didn't actually get to wear this dress for the event, because the fit was not right. I have a long torso, and the "natural waist" on this dress was much too high on me. It was unflattering because it did not cinch in at the most narrow part of my waist, but rather higher up at my rib cage. Otherwise the fit was great. Super cute dress!
