Eye catching dress!
This dress was amazing, fit true to size, and had SO many compliments at the wedding I was at. Perfect for a formal fall wedding. Fun to dance in as well! As others said the hanging straps are hard to keep in the dress, fashion tape would have been helpful.

As the mother of the bride, I wanted something special and this fit the bill! Fantastic dress !
Ordered the 4 and 6. The 4 was probably the better fit but I ended up wearing the 6 because it was more comfortable for sitting, moving, dancing etc. I wore a strapless bra, which helped fill in a bit. Gorgeous color. Lots of compliments. Not too short nor too long and that cape added some flair you don't see in most dresses.

A dress with cape!
The Good!... It's a beautiful color and unusual cut. Paired with silver heels. I received a lot of compliments and it photographed well. Wore size 4. Generally wear a size 2-4 in pants and 34b bust, (5'4" and 135lbs ) the dress was loose in the bust and waist but tight in the hips. I could squeeze into the size 2 and it fit my upper body perfectly but was uncomfortable at my hips. The criticism.... Fabric had minimal give. I had to smooth the dress down a couple of times because it would ride up slowly and made my midsection look poofy due to the fabric. I wore spanx underneath and really appreciated how it smoothed everything out. Dancing was a little difficult and couldn't lift my left arm because of the cape. Verdict....While I likes the concept of the dress, I probably wouldn't reorder this dress.

Beautiful dress - felt great at my high school reunion!
As others have said, the dress runs small - I ordered an 8 and a 10 (I have lost a little weight, so I figured if I was a 6 the 8 would fit, and if I was an 8 the 10 would fit). I was able to squeeze into the 8, but I was able to breathe in the 10. Fit well and the color is gorgeous. Decided not to wear a bra, but I did wear a smoothing brief. I felt so pretty in this - would rent again!!!!

I felt amazing in this dress and got compliments all night!
The dress was comfortable and unique. I ended up wearing my backup size which was a size larger due to the interior layer being snug and the underarms a bit tight. Absolutely fabulous dress!

Too large for me.
The dress arrived in good condition. The 0 was too large on me and looked baggy with the cape so did not wear as planned to rehearsal dinner.

Loved the classic color and simplicity of the style yet had a flare with the cape shoulder.
I normally wear a 2/4 in dresses depending on the style and I took the other reviews into considering when I ordered this dress but I wish I had sized up. The 4 fit fine but the inside slip layer is a little tighter that the outside layer. I wish I had ordered a 6 as a backup to see the difference but I still absolutely loved the dress. I felt amazing in this dress.

Simple and Elegant
This wasn't the dress I originally picked, this was a back up dress sent to me since my other dress couldn't be shipped. It worked well, it's a simple dress but the cape just adds a sense of elegance to it. The size 4 probably would have fit but it was really tight in the chest area. Also, sitting in the dress wasn't that easy - at least not in a 45 min car ride.

Didn't work for me, but beautiful color
Dress seems like it would fit straighter figures better. It did not work for my curves, either In the 8 or 10. Which was sad because the color and design are stunning!

I wore this to a wedding and it was great!
I was glad that other reviews mentioned that the dress runs small as I did end up wearing my larger, backup size (1 size larger than I normally wear). The dress fit well and was very flattering. I am a taller woman (5'11" and athletically thin) and the dress was long enough to wear to a formal wedding. It was a beautiful color and didn't wrinkle easily from sitting and standing and dancing. Overall, I loved the dress

Great dress
The dress was true to size, but be aware that there is NO give in the material, so if you are unsure, I'd go a size up. I was a little disappointed in the color, it was more navy than royal blues like the picture suggested.

I wore this to a summer wedding and had so many strangers come up and compliment my dress.
The dress runs true to size. It looks classy and beautiful, but it is still comfortable enough to dance in. Very pretty color as well.

Unique cape dress
Although I ended up wearing this dress I didn't love it. It fit me kind of weird and seemed to run small. Overall unique dress and the blue color was really pretty.

Superwoman!
This dress was sent overnight as a back up to a dress that was delivered damaged. I was concerned at first because the size 0 was unavailable, so I was sent a size 2. I had to use some fashion tape to keep the dress in place (I'm tiny up top). Other than it being a tad big, this dress was fabulous!

The color and the cape!
The 2 fit like a glove. I wore an adhesive petal bra but with a standard strapless the bust may of been a bit too snug. The fabric and cut of the dress is so beautifully made and the cape and color were amazing. I would own this dress.

Beautiful dress, but I couldn't wear it.
The 10 was tight across the bust and I'm a 36C. The dress has zero stretch. Don't get me wrong, I would rent this dress again but order a 12 as my back up.

All reviews said the dress ran small so I ordered a size up. I truly felt the dress ran true to size and I could've used a zero. Otherwise I loved it and felt elegant. Received lots of compliments all night.

Not being stuck with a dress I won't wear again
I loved the style of the dress it was very unique. The color was very striking and was perfect for a summer wedding. I normally wear a size 6 or 8 but the 10 fit best around my hips

Dress is not meant for women with hips
I wore the size 8 (I'm usually anywhere from a 4 to an 8), but the hips were still too tight and the bust was loose. The cape was really cool. Would recommend if you're more of a rectangle body type

I absolutely loved this dress. The color is so striking without being too much. The fit is beautiful and the cape keeps it classy while the length keeps it young and fresh. I will say though it totally runs AT LEAST 1 size small. I'm normally a 10 and I JUST FIT in the 12. If you don't mind what size the tag says, don't miss this dress!

The dress fit beautifully, the 'cape is more like a sleeve on the left shoulder. I wore a size 8.
The color is more of a true royal blue vs. The electric blue on the model. Loved it!

I got soooooo many compliments on this dress! So classy, yet sexy at the same time...
This runs SMALL - order a size up! I am typically a size 4/6 and the size 8 fit like a glove. Great dress for petite girls that are athletically built...I was also able to pull off going braless with this dress, which is always a plus:)

Color was a show stopper!
I loved wearing this dress. The fit was a bit small in the bust. That area is actually why I wear a larger size. Many compliments...I felt very pretty.

Simply elegant
I followed other reviews and sized up, so the 6 fit perfectly. I wore it for a gig and felt extremely comfortable whether standing and moving or sitting. It was a little windy so the cape billowed a bit which added a little unexpected flare to it. Highly recommended!

Beautiful blue, very trendy dress
The material was sturdy, but not heavy. loved the blue color and the caped sleeve made it feel fancy and fun. Not a super fitted dress, but perfectly shaped and comfortable.

Festive fundraiser
I received many compliments on the dress. It wasn't too long which is good Bc everything usually is since I'm 5'1". Only issue was the hanger strings would not stay tucked into the dress. I felt like I was tucking them back in all night which was annoying. They'd be the only reason I wouldn't recommend it.

This dress is so classy! I felt incredibly elegant wearing this to my friend's formal wedding. Thankfully the size 2 fit my 5' 5" frame because the size 2 and 4 felt exactly the same.

the dress was beautiful. I would buy this dress and take it in everywhere but the bust.
the 10 was too snug around the bust, I wear a 36DDD but the 12 was big everywhere else, but I wore the 12.

Really fun look for a party or wedding that turns heads!
I loved the color and cut. I wore a stick-on bra, but you might not need it. The dress wasn't too short, even for a tall girl. The shoulder that has the cape was a little slippy, but that forced me to have good posture. :) Overall true to size and a great selection for a Palm Springs wedding.

Felt like a million bucks in this dress!!
I received so many compliments on this dress! I wore it to an outside wedding at the end of May and it was perfect. Only downside was the hanging straps kept wanting to pop out, but once I tucked them into my bra, they seemed to stay put. I am 5'8", 130lbs, A-cup and the 6 fit me perfectly. I normally wear a size 4, but I couldn't even get the 4 past my butt. If you are larger chested or pear-shaped, I would definitely size up! The hips and chest are very straight with no give. So for me who has a tiny chest and little to no hips, it was fine. I will def rent this one again!!

Side cape is fabulous
Great color and the one arm with the cape makes this a standout. I wore this to a wedding where the dress code was not called out so wasn't sure how fancy/casual. The color makes it different than all the LBDs. The side cape adds a bit of flair, but is not too much. It's very elegant. The fit is true to size. There is a layer underneath that keeps the lines smooth and the top layer is a light crepe that does not wrinkle. I'll wear this again for sure!

Great color and style!
This was a classic dress. It was comfortable and fit well. It was a little big around my mid-section, but fit my shoulders well. There was a tiny tear where the cape meets the actual shoulder portion of the dress, but you really could not tell and no one noticed it. I would certainly wear this again.

Sassy show
I used this dress for a wedding in my family. If your looking for a tight form fitting dress this isn't it , this ran really loose in the torso & breast area . The dress does make a statement and I looked and felt great in it , just wish it was form fitting. I rented accessories as well but the only one I used was the purse very big for its size and made a great statement!! Overall this was a good experience and this time around so was the customer service thank you devan !

Unusual lovely dress
This dress was elegant, interesting and pretty forgiving. My husband thought the cape was weird but I found it super pretty and high fashion and the length and fit were great as I had a baby a few months ago and my size is a bit wonky.

I received a plethora of compliments on this dress!
Overall, this dress is great and I would have kept it! The style was longer than anticipated, and the color was a bit darker than anticipated. This is a shift dress so the midsection was very forgiving. I would highly recommend this dress for any occasion.
