The color is very pretty. Got alot of compliments on this dress.
I am probably in between sizes right now. The ten fit better but the top was tight. The dress is also very heavy. Not my favorite rental but a pretty dress. Very holiday.

Great dress, great color, great fun!
I ordered the 2 and the 4 (I am usually a 4) and the 4 fit perfectly. I was able to wear a regular bra with the dress so it was very comfortable. The dress had great weight to it so that made dancing fun! The color was brighter than expected but it was an elegant bright red and made the dress a stand out. Compliments all night!

I loved this dress! The only con is I wish it had pockets. It was comfortable and classic. Loved it

Fun and flirty!
True to size; very fun and comfy to wear. The lace is thick cotton knit lace, so it hides everything you don't want exposed while still showing off any fabulous curves you've got. You can wear any bra or underwear with it, and it hangs and flows very nicely. A great dancing dress!

To tight around ribcage
Beautiful dress.... Looked great with black boots heavy lace. Very forgiving fit. Even 8 was tight in bust area and ribcage.

The red is an eye catcher
I ordered this dress as a backup that I did not end up wearing, but nonetheless it was truly beautiful. The color was incredible and very bright, which is likely to turn heads. The dress did look quite worn, more than is typical for a RTR. Also the fabric is quite heavy and felt somewhat grimy. The heaviness weighs down the skirt so instead of being poufy/twirly as pictured, it sort of hangs there and just looks, well, dead. If the dress had been in better condition, I would have definitely worn it, so it was more of an RTR problem than a Kate spade problem. Finally I am usually a size 8 dress, and even the six I ordered was wayyyyyyy too large!

Great dress- perfect for a Valentine's Fundraiser!
The size 2 fit perfectly! The lace on this dress was a little bit worn, but you could only really see that up close. Love the color, really stood out! I'm smaller on top and bigger on the bottom so the 2 fit perfectly, but if you have a slightly bigger chest it may be best to go up a size!

It was fun to rent a red dress! Something I wouldn't have bought.
Fit was good but snug in the chest. Length was fine and I'm 5'1. Overall a cute dress and I got lots of compliments.

Beautiful fit, maybe worn a few too many times.
Fit a little small and could have worn the smaller size, but the smaller one didn't have a hook at the top (it had fallen off). The larger size was a little big but had a hook and thank god I wore that one. This dress is a gorgeous cut and color, loved it, but it's clearly been worn too many times and the zipper no longer locks. I was pulling up the zipper every couple minutes all night long. So embarrassing.

Unique and bright
This dress runs true to size, I chose to wear the larger of the two so I could move around easier. I wore this to my daughters carnival themed 1st birthday. I would say though that it is obvious this dress has been worn many many times and the crocheted material is not in the best condition anymore. It is a gorgeous dress though. Felt pretty and special.

Great color, good structure!
Wore this for my graduation. Tons of compliments on the color! The fabric is double layered so it's very thick--I would probably have been hot outside. I belted it but it looked cute without a belt too! You can tell this dress has been worn a bunch because the overlay is a slightly faded shade of red compared to the under layer, but it's not noticeable to the untrained eye and the dress is still in good shape.

Perfect for hosting a wedding shower.
This dress fits as a perfect 4, except as is true with all Kate Spade dresses - it's smaller in the bust. I'm a 32DDD and I definitely felt smooshed a little in this dress. You couldn't tell, but I felt slightly constructed. Better than having it be too big everywhere else!

Comfortable and flirty!
I wore this dress for a wedding. It was very comfortable, but a little bit on the heavy side so It wasn't the best choice for a hot summer night wedding. Once the temps wore down it was fine. I ordered an 8 and a 10. I opted for the 10 because I wanted more comfort in the chest area. Also, the 8 had a slight rip in the top back portion of the dress. The overall fit of the dress is great. I've noticed with Kate spade dresses the zipper glides down easily on its own. This is true with this dress as well. I had 3 people come up to me and zip me. Do be ware.

Too small didn't get to wear but i wish it fit!
I thought a 12 would fit and it didn't so it was disappointing of course. The dress is gorgeous but very rigid. There is no room for size error.

Perfect dress for the occasion
I wore this for Christmas after having had a baby, so I wore a larger size than usual since I hadn't lost the baby weight. It fit great, was comfortable and very cute. I was very happy with this dress

Lace details really made the dress look gorgeous
Worn this to a graduation ceremony. Only thing to be aware of is the dress is heavy. There are a few layers to the dress and wish they could be removable. Probably not the best option for beginning of summer in Atlanta. Regardless dress was perfect for the event and the red color wasn't too bright.

Too tight!
I normally wear size 4, and always get the size 6 as a back up. Still the size 6 was a little too tight... Fabric is a little too heavy. Other than that, the dress was ok.

Beautiful color! Photographs awesomely!
Really loved this dress! Beautiful color and good fit. It does have a weird little bunch in the front because of how it's cut but I don't think it's very noticeable. The skirt hit my just above the knee so if you're on the shorter end, it may be too long. All in all it was a beautiful dress. Who couldn't love a Kate Spade??

Color popped in a sea of black dresses and flattered my daughter's petite frame.
Perfect for a fall/winter event as the gorgeous lace overlay is heavy. The top of this dress fit like a glove without being overly tight and the flare skirt was so pretty and allowed my daughter free movement without having to worry about tugging down a short fitted skirt. The length was a bit longer than we'd expected, but nothing a little hemming tape and a few stitches didn't fix. Loved the bright red!

Can be dressed up or down
I wore this for a birthday date. My husband took me out to dinner and to see a show. I paired the dress with a denim jacket to dress it down for a Sunday matinee but the Kate Spade pearl necklace and earrings (also from RTR!) still made the outfit classic. I felt that the 8 was just a little too snug under the bust but the 10 was a little too loose in the shoulders, just not enough to bother me. I wore the 10 because I wanted to be comfortable.

Not the chicest dress
i needed a red dress for a heart association luncheon and this fit the bill, but the fabric is more like crochet and gives a homesy-vibe that isn't necessarily my favorite. also, the bottom is very voluminous and made me appear very bootylicious and almost heavy.

Better in picture
Although neither size fit, I thought the dress looked old and very worn. It was also a bit too summery for when I rented, but the fabric was too heavy for warm weather. There are better dresses.

Fun to Wear
This dress fits like a standard Kate Spade dress. I got a million compliments but I have to admit this dress has seen better days. The color wasn't as vibrant as I expected and the crocheting was thin in some places I was worried I would rip it. I rented as part of my Unlimited service so I wasn't devastated.

Very cute dress and fun to wear. A little tight in the rib cage.
Fit was a little tight in the rib cage and dress weight was a little heavy, but gorgeous dress and I got a lot of compliments. I felt very pretty.

Pretty color and lace detail
The dress fit fine but was a bit tight in the bust (I wear 34DD) and was tight in the rib cage area when I sat down. Overall I liked the swingy-ness of the dress and color and lace detail, but it was heavy like lots of other reviewers said, but didn't feel heavy once I had it on. I wore this to a wedding on a ranch on a hot day but it felt fine!

Beautiful color!
This definitely ran a little snug, but the 8 left me plenty of room. The length was great and I loved the neckline. It is definitely a thick dress with the lace and lining.

Fun dress great for a red white and blue party!
I loved the style of the dress - super fun for the red white and blue party I went to. I felt like the bottom was really large and puffed out quite a bit but if you are comfortable with that its a great dress.

Pretty crochet
The dress does not stretch and would recommend to size up. It was tight in the chest & I didn't zip it up. I would rent in size 4.

So much better in person!
This was such a cute dress! The fit was comfortable and flattering. The color was bright and cheerful! I would definitely rent this dress again. My only complaint is that it has obviously been rented many times and is a bit worn due to use.

Perfect outfit for Baby Shower host!
This dress was heavier than I expected it to be, but I was in air conditioning all day so it didn't matter. It was fitted on too and flowed out on the bottom which is the best style for me because I'm a bit pear shaped. This was a really comfortable dress, and the bright red color was awesome!

Great fit overall. Didn't get the best pictures to show but it was an incredibly flattering dress. I'm only 5' so it was a bit long which was perfect for a work party.

Super tight waist
I really wanted to love this dress, but the four was too small, the six fit, but was REALLY tight around the waist. Call customer support to have them send me a bigger size but it was too big and had a stain all over the top. Squeezed myself into the six and it was fine. Put a belt over the waist line to just jazz it up a bit. It just dug into me the whole time. It was also a little long but I don't like to wear heels. I'm sure it would have looked better with heels on.

Beautiful but heavy!!
I have a short torso, so the bodice of this dress was way too long. I just had a baby and unfortunately the pleats and fullness of the skirt hung right on the baby fat. I chose it thinking it would make my waist look small and camouflage my lower abdomen and hips, but it did the opposite and made me look much bigger than I am. I am only 5'2" so I think it would look much better on someone taller. The quality is amazing though- the lace and the color are gorgeous!!! One thing to note is that this dress is very heavy- I wouldn't recommend wearing this outdoors during the summer!

Not a summer dress...
First off, this dress was beautiful. Very high-end and luxe fabric, very well made, and was in great condition. It definitely runs large though as the 4 was quite big on me. This would be a great option for hippy girls as the skirt is quite flared and has tons of extra fabric. For me, I felt the extra fabric and flared skirt just added unnecessary bulk and made the whole thing a little too schoolgirl for my taste. It's also very heavy, as many other reviewers have said, so perhaps a better option for the fall/winter rather than summer. I ordered it as my back-up and didn't end up wearing it for all of these reasons. It's a lovely dress, but just wasn't for me in the end.

The color and the lace were absolutely gorgeous.
The 8 was really baggy, especially in the bust. The 6 fit much better, but still needed to be belted. Overall, a very ladylike dress perfect for a conservative wedding.

Flattering fit with waistline in the right place! The skirt is not as full as it looks in RTR photo.
I got lots of compliments on this dress! It's a great color too. I paired it with gold, open-toe heels for summer. Dress would be good in fall too!
