Great engagement pictures!
I got this dress to take engagement pictures in. To be honest when I first tried the dress on, I was unsure if I was going to like it. (I personally felt awkward with the cape, but I had never worn anything like it before) When I got my pictures back, I was so impressed! The dress made this big girl look slimmer, and I got so many compliments and questions on where I got the dress

Won Best Dressed!
I wore this dress for my city's Dîner en Blanc party. I've rented it in red before and absolutely loved it so I was super excited to wear it in white. It was perfect for the party, especially because the cape sort of served as a coat when it started to get a little chilly. The dress is comfortable and super fun. I received compliments all night, which was capped off by receiving one of the best dressed awards, which came with a $100 gift card. With that, renting this dress actually made me money!

Classy and Sharp
I rented this dress for my sister for my niece's wedding in Cancun. The fabric is a heavy material but since the wedding was off the water it was still comfortable for her to wear. The material was still breathable. She received lots of compliments and she looked fabulous. If you are a curvy woman she suggests to wear undergarments or spandex to pull and hold everything in. She loved her rental!

White party favorite! I was voted most fabulous
One word for this dress - SLAY! I have never felt so fabulous as I did with this caped dress. I attended an all white party for my network marketing business and I definitely made a statement with this dress!

I ordered this dress for my mother to wear to her surprise party and it made for a grand entrance!
The only con was that the dress had to be pressed at the cleaners due to the wrinkles from shipping. Other than that, all else was fine.

Comfortable and great length for short folks!
I wore this for my engagement party in July. The cape was dramatic and the stretchy fabric was very comfortable. However, the fabric is pretty thick so I wouldn't rent it for an outdoor summer event. Like anything white, it seemed to show lots of stains by the end of the night.

I wore this outfit for my bridal shower.
No cons.... I received so many compliments on this outfit. The only thing is that I needed a strapless bra, because the back is a little open.

This dress is amazing!
This dress is so fabulous and I got so many compliments. Really, this dress is so FAB! Comfortable, easy to wear and so dramatic. I wore spa clothes b/c it's white and white can be so unforgiving, but could have done without. Get this dress! You get to wear a cape! And you'll feel like Wonder Woman!

I wore this dress for my Engagement Party. I received multiple compliments.
The fit was ok. The fabric is stretchy so it helped since I have large hips and thighs. The cons are the seam was coming undone. I wish the RTR team would have checked this before shipping out the dress to me.

The dress was stunning. All eyes was on me when I walked in the room.
The fit was perfect. The only con is I will probably rent the red dress next time because I was so afraid of getting a stain on the dress. I managed to make it through the night.

You'll be super comfortable while feeling fabulous! It does run a smidge big, but that's probably because I'm a 14, not a 14W. Worth it!

Talk about a Slay!!!
I rented this dress because I wanted something special to wear for Easter; at my church Easter is an event and we usually go all out! This year we were told our colors were white with hints of pastels and I wanted a white dress that was a statement ( I wanted to slay). Hunny this dress was a complete slay!!!! the fit was true to size* and so comfortable! I got compliments all day on the dress and how nice I looked in it! I'm definitely gonna rent the black one for another event! *if your a big girl with a belly like me, by a really good waist shaper (All I had was 1 pair of spanks and it was nice but if I had a waist shaper the front of the dress would have been smoother and not clinged to my belly).

This is my Aunt. I rented this dress for my Aunt's surprise 34th Wedding Vow Renewal.
My Aunt LOVED it! This was the absolute best dress for the occasion! The fit was amazing, and it was true to size. Her height is 5'9". She looked absolutely beautiful in it! She was pleasantly surprised when she "found" it at the end of the scavenger hunt. I'm so glad I chose this dress.

I loved the dress, I felt like I was one of the best dressed besides the wedding party!
The fit was just right. I think I actually could have worn a size 12 only because depending on the cut I normally wear a 12 or 14.

I wore this for my religious wedding ceremony.
The cape adds that extra drama making this a great choice when you want to stand out. Cons, i found the arm holes to be tight and they chafed causing red marks. Other than that no complaints.

Comfortable, fun and fit in all the right places!
I would absolutely rent this again! The cape is great if you're not in love with you arms, but still shows off your silhouette. I wore it with nude heels, minimal jewelry and loose curls - I had a ton of compliments. The fabric is thicker, so it gets a little warm but still comfortable. I danced the night away in it and it was still comfy!

This dress was worn for my engagement photos, and it was absolutely enchanting!
The dress fit very well, wasn't tight. As many previous wearers stated the fabric is very forgiving. The cape absolutely stole the show, minimal accessories is the way to go! Keep it classy with neutral shoes and minimal statement jewelry the dress will take care of the rest!!!

I felt beautiful and comfortable at my bridal shower in this caped, winter white dress!
This dress was a tad large on me (I normally wear a 12) but it was still lovely and comfy. I wore it to my bridal shower in a cold-weather city. The neckline is high, which allows you to pair basically any necklace with it. I received many compliments on the unique cape of this dress (it's attached). I did wear nude-colored shapewear underneath the dress and nobody could tell. The fabric is heavier than I expected, but it doesn't cling to problem areas which is really nice. I really loved wearing this and it is great for curvier body types.

Show stopper!!!!!
I absolutely loved this dress!! I tried to purchase it online but it was sold out everywhere. I was so thrilled to see it available on RTR! I wore it to a white party and received compliments all night long. I really don't like my arms exposed which is why I love the cape so, so much! If you are on the fence definitely take the chance and wear this beauty! You won't regret it!

The size 18W fit true to size, the dress has some stress without being uncomfortable.

I rented this dress for my bridal shower
Love this dress! I rented this for my bridal shower and it was perfect. It is made of a nice thick stretch material that has great movement when you walk. The cape is split in the back so it's easy to zip up and down. It glided over my curves and was the perfect length. The only thing I was paranoid about was getting something on it because it's white. I got compliments all day and am still getting compliments on social media. I rented this with the kate spade bride2be clutch.

Wore to a banquet with everyone wearing white.
The fit was perfect and was able to wear all foundation garments. It was simple but the cape gave it drama with an edge. Stood out among a very large group and very a second thought.

I felt like a celebrity, everyone complimented me on my dress!
I wore this to the final, all white banquet of my sorority conference. There were 23,000+ women there in all white, and I didn't see anyone with my dress on! I was worried the dress would be warm with the cape (Atlanta in July is NOT cool) but the cape was actually more like two super long flaps that allowed air to flow around and underneath you, providing a cooling effect. I ordered the 18W and 16W (I'm a size 18) and went with the 18W because although it was a little loose, I didn't have to wear shapewear I like did with the 16W. Plus it was easier to get on over my makeup-full face than the 16W.

That cape is out of control
My only complaint is that this dress is too short for my taste. I am very tall thought so that may not be a problem for others. If you ever have a resin to wear a white dress get this one. That cape makes you feel like a million bucks. The fabric is thick and really great as well. I work black spanx underneth and you couldn't tell at all.

The cape dress was a HUGE hit. The material is very forgiving and the stretch is GREAT!
The fit was great. I didn't wear any shape-wear to hit any imperfections because the dress was very forgiving! The length was perfect and the cape stole the show! I would recommend this for any formal event! I wore this for a Tea Fundraiser.
