Okay...

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was okay. I normally wear a size 2 in Kate Spade dresses and in this one the 4 was hard to zip up- tight in the chest area. The material is heavy (hot for an outdoor wedding) and has a casual almost worn look to it. Unfortunately the lining was hanging out of the dress and had to be safety pinned up in order for me to wear it. Overall it had a nice cut to it and was flattering.The bow detail in the back was really darling.

I absolutely love this dress. The cut is very flattering and I got endless compliments.

I found the fit to be true to size. I wore it to a family friend's wedding so I loved that it was conservative enough but still had a fun back. The material is pretty thick so it might be a bit hot for an outdoor event, luckily I had no issues.

Super cute, classic Kate Spade detailing. Perfect for just about anything

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
After an extensive search for something to wear to my sister's graduation, I instantly fell in love with this adorable Kate Spade number, especially the cleverly concealed front pockets and bow detailing. As a very short and pretty petite person, though, the dress itself fit perfectly, with the exception of the straps; they were inevitably too long, so some small adjustments had to be made (built-in bra strap anchors did help). Nevertheless, it still fit high enough in the underarm area for the strap length to be an almost non-issue. Upon close inspection, it was clear that it's a dress that has been well-loved and enjoyed by many, but still looks great, photographs well and certainly has several more wears left. Comfortable enough to be easily worn all day, but large busts and rib cages beware, this dress is designed to fit snugly, so if in doubt, be sure to also order your second size one size up from your usual dress size. Overall, a universally flattering fit on just about everyone, whether you're 5'2" (like me) or 5'7", like my sweet "little" sister. Enjoy!

Wore this for doctoral graduation. Perfect style for something dressy but needing a little personality! Lots of compliments and was comfortable all day. The fabric is a little heavier than expected but it was in the low 70s on my day so it was perfect!

I wore this dress for my senior pictures. It is not very comfortable, but it ended up photographing really well. The fabric is fairly heavy and the skirt is full. This dress nips in at the waist to give you a nice shape. I had a great time taking pictures in it, but I would not recommend it for a long event.

It is a little long for shorter gals, but I did't mind. The bust was little tight, but better than having a gap. I overall loved the dress though! I felt like Karlie Kloss.

This dress didn't work out for me.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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 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.

I got so many compliments on this dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Tons of compliments on this one!

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.

Overall fit: True to Size

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!

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.

The bow detailing in the back and full skirt made this a fun choice for a wedding!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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 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.

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.

Unfortunately, I had to send this dress back for being too small in the bust. It fit great everywhere else (running pretty true to size), but I couldn't get the zipper to finish zipping up the chest. A great dress but only for women who are not large chested.

cute dress, but oddly fitted in the chest area

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a friend's wedding. I am usually a 12, so I rented a 10 and a 12. A 14 arrived in the 12 bag though, which was way too big. The 10 was too small. It fit everywhere except for the chest. It smushed my chest down in front, but gaped a bit at the sides. The 14 was just huge in the chest and waist area. RTR was great though, and rushed me over a new dress (since there weren't any other 12s in stock). They chatted with me on the phone about what would work well, and what was available. Excellent customer service.

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!

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.

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, 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.

The neckline bulges out, even with a larger chest. Having wider shoulders would help, but I can imagine that the top neckline is not very flattering for most women. I still enjoyed wearing it!
