This isn't like anything I've ever worn. I loved it and didn't want to send it back!

Classic black sheath, but with a CAPE! It's flattering, unique, and dramatic. I loved this dress. I wanted to wear it forever! I paired it with opaque tights because it was a freezing cold February night. I got so many compliments on this dress. I felt like a million bucks. The cut is flattering, especially on an hourglass figure.

Beautiful, unique, and stylish

This dress was incredible. I felt amazing in it and I had multiple strangers stop me to tell me how beautiful it was. The pink underneath the cape was the perfect amount of color to set it apart from all the other black dresses. The cape was perfect. It kept the impression of a sleeveless sheath dress while covering up my flabby upper arms. The cape also hides a less than perfect silhouette from the back and sides which is great for someone like me who is bottom heavy. In spite of reviews of similar dresses, I was still scared of getting a dress that was too small so I ordered my size and one up. I regretted it and almost called to see if I could get a smaller size. I decided to go ahead and go with it though since it fit ok on the bottom and was just too big on top and the cape helped to hide that. About the only thing this cape won't do is keep you warm unless you lift the bottom up and pull it around you. I wore this dress for a six hour long party and it was comfortable the entire time. I was kinda sad to take it off at the end of the night.

This unique dress was a total hit. Loved it.

I'm usually a size 12 but decided to go up a size due to past experiences w RTR dresses to snug. However this dress is true to size. It was a little big for me but because oa the cape you couldn't notice. The dress is very flattering and the hot pink inside the cape was a hit. Only negative was during the reception, dancing the cape felt heavy and in the way while dancing. I wished it could of been removed, but other than that it was a beautiful unique dress.

Loved and chose the cape dress to cover some spots on my shoulders.

Loved this dress. Very comfortable, and flattering. I prob could have sized down, but this one fit fine. At times, I was a little warm...but could have just been from the dancing/tight quarters. Very happy with my RTR experience and will use them again.

The power of the cape is not to be underestimated .

The dress is well-cut for a fuller figure. I am 5" 8" 180 and a 34 G and the 14w still had a little room. It was comfortable and easy to wear and I felt elegant in it. The pink inside the cape makes it exciting. I loved it so much I bought the dress(but in all black so I can keep wearing it). It's a modest cut but still felt very attractive.

Felt Fab! Loved the quality of my dress!

Dress was good quality and made me feel fabulous! Should of went a size down because this dress was too big on me. The cape was icing on the cake. Kept warm with no worry on a shawl or jacket. The pop of pink was just right. Will definitely rent again!

Confidence

I rented this dress for a NYE formal party. The dress had a lot of structure and thickness to it. I was able to wear it out with no jacket on a snowy winter night and I stayed reasonably warm. My favorite part of the dress was that it hid my upper arms well when I wanted it to. It also had snaps in the shoulder to hold my bra straps in place as the larger size dresses usually have a wider neck line. I wish I had a size smaller but the dress worked fine regardless. I wore high knee boots and black stockings. I received a lot of complements!

Everybody loved the cape!

This was my first RTR experience, and I will be back for sure! I needed a dress for my hubby's work party which was a black and white masquerade theme. This dress worked perfectly! Everyone loved the cape! It was comfortable, and bonus...it's winter in the NW and the material is thick and kept me nice and warm. I've gained a little weight lately, and this dress made me feel pretty, comfortable, and relaxed.

Plus size dream dress

As a plus size lady carrying extra weight in the front and back this cape camouflaged my fluffiness perfectly. I sized up so that my fluffy rolls weren't so much on display and because this dress is pretty short on me (I'm 5'11"). You can see I had to yank it down for this picture! I pretty much stole the show at this wedding. I have also rented this dress in two other colors I love it so much. It's a nice thick fabric so it lays well. Rent this immediately.

Inaugural event

This dress was an alternative to another I had ordered. However, it was really nice and I received several compliments! I ordered 20 and 22 and the 20 was fine with a little extra room even. I love that it was simple enough to bedazzle with shoes and accessories!!!

I after trying this one I chose to sent it back because it was just not very flattering. My arms looked big in it and the dress was not form fitting.

Fun and comfortable dress!

Wore this dress to a fundraising gala. I was part of the event team and I appreciated the fact that this dress was comfortable and easy to work in. The cape was super fun and I felt great in the dress for the entire evening. I'm probably closer to a size 12, so the dress was a little roomy, but it hid my mid-section perfectly. Highly recommend!

The most amazing epic dress! The cape was a huge hit.

Again, another amazing, easy to wear dress from Adrianna Papell!! The cape drew tons of compliments and the sheath dress underneath ease constructed so that a lot of bumps and lumps are hidden. Decided to pair with black legging because the dress tends to want to be a belt when you sit down.

Runs big, but fun cape

Fit was very baggy, but when it has a hot pink lined cape, who cares? Unfortunately, I didn't get to twirl around enough in this dress because we were seated most of the night.

Unique and Fun!!

I wore this in Vegas for my husband's Marine Corps Ball. I got so many compliments on having such a fun and unique dress that nobody else was wearing! I absolutely love this dress. However, ladies be prepared for your date to make Batman jokes about the cape. It was funny and he said I loved amazing but he did make Batman cape jokes.

Perfect winter graduation dress

This dress is SO beautiful! I wore it for my graduation ceremony on a cold winter day. The cape kept me warm and the pop of pink was the perfect shade. The dress was so comfortable and looked great with tight, panty hose or bare legs.

I seriously felt like a super hero between the cape and my knee-high boots, I loved every second!

the 16W fit fine but I probably could have gotten away with the 14W. The cape was an amazing feature, was a little warm because of the fabric, but it breathes. The dress stopped just above my knees. Really easy to dress this up for black tie or dress down for any kind of party that is fancier than casual. I wish I had bought this dress, it was so much fun! I could only list my bust size as big as a 38, but closer to 40 or 42.

This dress was a head-turner!

I wore this dress to a gala dinner for my work. You know that feeling where it seems like everyone is staring at you? Well everyone was definitely staring at me and I felt GREAT about it! I took a fashion risk by renting this dress and it definitely paid off. It was perfect for March in Chicago- I was comfortable all night in a room where most people were chilly. I would imagine this dress would be too heavy to wear in warmer weather unless you really enjoy sweating. The dress did run quite large- I'd recommend sizing down. At first, I wasn't sure I'd be able to wear it because it was hanging really loose. I ended up putting a belt on and gathering the extra fabric in the back. The cape hid my "alterations" perfectly and I felt gorgeous. This dress is sexy without being revealing- perfect for a classy night out.

Wore for my date to the Opera. It was perfect except it was 2 sizes to big so it hung on me.

I really loved this dress. It's unfortunate that the smallest size I of the two I was able to order was still 2 sizes too big. I had gone down a few sizes after I placed this order. It was very elegant in its own 'casual' way. Too bad it was hanging on me. I will rent it again. Maybe even buy it!

Was fine.

The cut was larger than expected so it was a bit baggy. But the outfit still looked nice and I received compliments on it. The sleeves were cut too far forward/too long however, and I found the flaps getting in the way. Would have been nice if the flaps had been a lighter material.

This dress was roomy, but in a good and comfortable way. The shape was perfect, the fabric was luxurious, and it was very versatile--I wore this to a PP event, and the pink lining was just fun perfection. Would definitely wear this again!

Worn to a special fundraiser in NYC that called for Cocktail Attire

This dress was SOOO flattering, cut really nicely, put together well, a nice weight and hung right. Perfect for the cooler weather and that pop of pin was such a nice surprise. I received many complements on this dress and only wore it for a few hours. I felt elegant, polished and perfectly attired for this Hilton Hotel affair on a Saturday night. Was surprised that it seemed to run a little large. It might be because of the W - after the sizing. I was expecting a traditional size 16 that you'd find in any US department store, as such I ordered the 18W as my back-up size.

I wore this to the Spanish Town Mardi Gras Ball. The colors were pink and black and this dress was amazing. I wear a 16 and the 16 W was big but not crazy big. The cape was the perfect touch!! I absolutely loved it.

Was way too short on me (6') for it to be comfortable for me to wear out.

Was quite tight fighting and very short on me, so I didn't end up wearing it. It was my free birthday rental, so I didn't make a fuss about it.

This dress made me feel like a million bucks! Lots of compliments all night!!

This was my first time to try RTR and I will defiinitely do this again!! I had a huge formal event to attend and I wanted something special that would be comfortable but stand out. This dress really fit the bill! I especially love the built-in "cape" that kept me from freezing in the banquet hall, which is usually a problem. This dress fit perfectly - not tight or uncomfortable - and was just the right length for my 5' 4.5" height. I attend lots of events as part of my job and I intend to make RTR my regular "go-to" solution for the "what will I wear" question that always plagues me. My favorite part is that I ordered two sizes and the smaller of the two fit with room to spare. 😊

Professional, elegant and dramatic!

I find most Adrianna Papell dresses run large but this one fit perfectly! Best of all it fit my 36G Bust. I wore it for a "street style" photo shoot and also styled different to a networking reception with female members of Congress and I got non-stop compliments. It was so much fun to wear. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Trendy yet comfortable!

This was a really great choice for a January black tie gala. I wanted something I wouldn't have to fuss with being too low cut or too short and this was it. I got lots of compliments on it -- it was simple, yet really stood out among a bunch of more traditional gowns. It also photographed well since it wasn't reflective or shiny. I liked that it was basically a funky little black dress, because it's a base to build on. One of the reasons I chose it was because I knew I could wear a normal bra. The actual dress part does kind of rely on your own body shape for definition rather than serving to create an illusion, so if you're looking for something to disguise too many or too few curves, you might not enjoy this. It was nice to try a high neckline with some stretch, because having a 38HH (UK) bust line can be tricky. The cape was also great for warmth and coverage without dealing with coat check. I ended up wearing the 20W (my backup size) but I believe I could have worn a 16 or 18 -- I'm not used to dresses running true to size, and this one does have some wiggle room to it. Overall, definitely a great, comfortable choice without sacrificing any style.

The cape is SO much fun....

This is a replacement dress and feel so happy the first dress didn't fit! It was a last minute exchange and delivery was seamless as usual! This was my first time wearing Adrianna Papell; this dress is unique and very flattering. It was the talk of my class union and very comfortable. Easy to zip up alone. Quality material that isn't too heavy and the cape was so much fun but managed to not get in the way at all.
