Sexy and Fabulous!!!
This dress was amazing. I received so many compliments and likes. The dress is certainly true to size and best for cool settings or environments as the dress is made of thick material. The room in which the reception was held was very cool but I was warm because of the material. I love the colors and fabric, particularly the zipper slit on the sides. Truly a sexy dress. I will order from this designer again.

I wore this dress for my quarter of a century birthday party. It was a big hit! So beautiful.
This dress fit like a glove. I was nervous at first about the scuba-like material, but it was perfect. Very feminine, sexy, and elegant at the same time! The designs and colors on the dress were so pretty and photographed nicely! i would definitely recommend this dress! I got the small and an xs as backup, but i ended up wearing the xs because it fit well.

How was the length ? I see you are 5'6" I am only 5'3" size 0 and worried it will look too long/ mid shin. Just a gorgeous dress though..
SophiaSeptember 24, 2014
It fit just right below my knee! I'm actually about 5'5" technically lol, but it really is a beautiful dress!
SophiaSeptember 24, 2014
Connie, there is also a slit on the side that can go verrrrry high up! So if the dress is too long, you can make it a littler sexier by making a bigger slit.
ConnieSeptember 24, 2014
Thanks so much for the feedback Sophia! BTW you look Fab in the dress and Happy Belated 25th!!!

Wore this beautiful dress to our Club Christmas reception; loads of compliments! Perfect for a cool Florida evening--didn't require a wrap.. You're never too old to dress nicely! ( I'm 73.) Nancy Patterson--Orlando)

This dress is HOT! physically and literally :)
It is suuuuuuper sexy and snug. Although I did go down a size to make sure it was fitted perfectly. Clover Canyon is known for their almost scuba like material and if it's not a perfect fit, it can look a little boxy. I got the S and XS and squeezed myself into the XS. I wouldn't recommend this dress for a night out in a tropical location, but an evening in Chicago in the fall, I was comfortable without being too hot or too cold.

I definitely suggest this unique form-fitting dress, especially if you have curves!
I waited until the week before a wedding to order this dress and all that was available was a small. This made me very nervous, because I usually need a medium. However, I selected it anyway and am so happy I did! The small was perfect. This dress hugs your body and the scuba material is so flattering. The only downside is that it can be a little hot. The wedding was outdoors (Florida in Oct). It was around 85 degrees and super humid. I started to sweat some, which was uncomfortable. The reception was indoors and then the dress was perfect. I was even able to dance in it with ease.

Quite the impression at a Client Event at the Theatre!
I ordered XS and S. I normally wear XS but went with the S since it was a client event. The S hugged my curves smoothly and was classy. I am 5'3" and it hit me just below knee. Gorgeous dress and I got compliments all night. This dress was the hit of the event!

Great dress, beautiful pattern, comfy fabric!
The small and xsmall both fit well, I went with the cd because the shoulders fit a little better. The fabric is super stretchy and really thick, almost like you are wearing a wet suit, but it's really comfortable and squeezes everything in place just right. I love the midi length and thought it worked on me even though I'm super short. Great pattern, I want this dress!!

Colourful in a Room of Drab
I wore this dress for a conference: It's warm (conferences are always overly air conditioned), it's conservative enough, it's modern enough. It was comfortable to wear and classy. A bit uncomfortable to get on, but otherwise a win.

This dress was completely out of my style comfort zone, but the risk definitely paid off!!
I would not have chosen this dress off the website on my own, simply because the pattern and design are not typical of something I would wear. The fabric is a neoprene - like a scuba suit - which is very forgiving (I don't exactly have washboard abs). The wedding I attended was in Buffalo in October, so the long sleeves and heavier fabric were not a problem. The fit was true to size - I typically wear a size 10 in closer fitting dresses because I have generous curves. The hemline dropped just below my knee, and in the website photo, you'll see a slit up the side - however, the slit has a zipper so you can leave it closed, or open it to about mid-thigh. I didn't see a lot of reviews for this dress prior to my rental, so I wanted to make sure I wrote something that would do it justice. I cant' say enough good things about the style, the fabric, and the fit, and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something a little flashy (with the floral design on the front) and a little sexy (with the curve hugging fit).

I want it!
Thick dri-fit material keeps you warm. Large fits a 36DD bust but is too big everywhere else. Ended up cuffing the sleeves. Could have gotten away with a medium due to the stretch in fabric.

Didn't work.
I didn't have much luck with this dress… the fit and style was all off for me. The small which I usually wear in dresses was much too big and the length was way to long. The extra small was extremely tight in the top and the neck line was strangling. I really wanted to love this dress the colors are amazing but the face my husband made when i tried it on was enough for me to know it wasn't meant for me. Oh and as the other reviews have said the material is very thick… it does feel like you are wearing a scuba suit!

I rented the dress for my birthday celebration on the spare of the moment. The dress fit like a glove very true to a size, very comfortable for the colder climate. Surprise earrings were a nice touch

I wore this dress to a charity art auction and received tons of compliments.
Loved this dress! It's made out of a light weight neoprene type material that has some stretch to it and doesn't look cheap. It's also warm which was perfect for an evening affair in DC in November. The slit on the thigh has a zipper so you can choose how much leg to show which is nice. The only drawback is that I found it a little difficult to zip the back of the dress all the way up and secure the eye hook on my own.

Wish it had fit, totally love the material and dress patten!
I loved this dress however it made me look prego & accentuated my back fat! If I were in better shape the small would have been a perfect fit! It is very snug. Or maybe a medium with spanx under? Next time I will stop by the shop and try on first, or try it on at Bloomy's first! I didn't wear the dress but was very happy with the service and will rent again! Thanks for the free samples!!

Having 2 sizes to work with was amazing!
This dress is incredible! I am very curvy and like a form fitting dress, but I like to be able to move around comfortably, so I opted for the L. Neoprene is a very hot material, but the bigger size still showed off my curves without making me too warm. I would have been ok in the M, but didn't want to be concerned about the dress being too tight. LOVE Clover Canyon dresses!

It was for my 30th birthday surprise party!
The dress fit like a glove. It was a little chilly out and the "wet-suit" like fabric was perfect. It fits true to size. Form fitting but you can still move around comfortably. I wore it with Gold Christian Louboutins and it looked fabulous.

Great service, gorgeous dress. I will definitely purchase this dress and more from the designer.
Wore this to a holiday gala with a "festive" dress attire. The material amps the appearance of the dress. The scuba-ish material is flattering to curves. The pattern helps conceal the belly overall. I am planning on purchasing this dress and more from this designer. I'm usually a size 6 and I wore a medium. I felt as if I could have worn a small but would have felt self conscious about my belly. The neoprene is perfect for the colder climates and months. Very pleased and tons of compliments.

Fun, flirty, fashionable!
I wore this dress to a tea/luncheon. Great fabric!! Good stretch to the dress! Thick material reminds you of a scuba suit, but much more stylish!! Great for a winter affair, since the dress is so thick! I loved the zipper split, which allows you to show more leg or just a tease!! I do think the arms were a bit snug, but over all great fit and true to size! Canyon Cove has a new fan!! The dress pattern is busy enough so I wore a simple black bootie so that the dress would be my focal point!! HA!

Dress for colder weather, and for someone with an open mind & tall.
The dress is made out of extremely heavy scuba material, so I do not recommend it if you are planning on going to an event in hot weather. The sleeves are really long, (my mom) had to roll her sleeves up in this photo. Also, the dress is overall really long, so unless tall heals are being worn, I wouldn't recommend this for anyone "short". The dress overall is very eye catching and you will get a lot of compliments. Comfy, not too tight. True to size. (my mom) said she would have preferred to wear a S over the M, but the M did work just fine.

Didn't end up wearing it, but it was amazing.
Looking for something different that everyone will complement? This is the one. Its that scuba suit material. So super forgiving, super comfy, in an amazing pattern. I wasn't able to fit in the Large I ordered, and XL was out, but will be renting the XL next chance I get!

Cocktail Party
Great fit, perfect length, photographs well. Not super easy to get on as the back, upper zipper is very short. Slit on the side can be adjusted to your taste.Way too unique to own and wear more than once, so perfect to rent for a single event. Don't wear this if you are super body conscious as all your curves will show, but will be smoothed...

Perfection for Valentines Dinner!
I wound up with this gorgeous Clover Canyon dress when the one I initially reserved was returned damaged, and am I ever thrilled I did! It is truly stunning, with a totally unique print and neoprene fabric that hugs every curve! I am 4' 11", and wore 5" heels, which kept it from being too long, everywhere else fit flawlessly. If you like quirky, but sophisticated details, you can't miss with Clover Canyon!

I rented this for an afternoon party.
The dress has beautiful colors the vertical lines are very slimming, and the material is quite thick, so no need for spanx. The XS looked fantastic when standing still, but the minute I started walking about, it would creep up my body. To keep from constantly pulling it back down in place, I opted to wear the S. The small was a little big in the waist, but still looked fine.

Too heavy and restricting.
Unfortunately, I couldn't wear either size. I love body hugging dresses, but the material on this definitely is too restricting and heavy. I read the reviews and was undeterred; however you really need to be aware that this dress is VERY heavy and tighter than normal. Had to buy a dress locally and although it's tight as well, the fabric forgives...

This dress was perfect for the feb 28 Mardi gras party I attended.
I received may compliments on this dress. It really hugs every curve with the heavy neoprene fabric. The party was in a tent and it was quite cold out so I enjoyed the extra warmth of the material. It does tend to ride up a bit, I didn't order the large as I'm usually a perfect medium so not sure if that would have been slightly more comfortable. But The medium worked ok. The dress does stand out in a see oh black and is a great winter style.

Rocked this power dress at a seriously important work meeting!
Rented this for a day of important meetings, and LOVED it. The pic is me at the end of the day celebrating - and it was super comfortable all day long, a point worth celebrating on its own. I wore the medium because I have wide shoulders - and it was for work, not play - and it fit perfectly. Sleek and professional, without being overtly sexy. I didn't realize until the end of the day there's a zipper along the bottom side so you can make it a slit, so I just wore it as a pencil style skirt. The fabric is a little weird (like thin neoprene), but it's actually quite flattering and didn't add a bunch of bulk. It was not at all too hot in an office environment. Got several compliments from the ladies. Overall it's a great power dress without being as in-your-face as red, plus you don't even have to accessorize.

Blizzard on my birthday
This dress is UNREAL!!!! So beautiful! I didn't expect it to fit, I really just wanted to see it in person to decide if I wanted to buy it (after I lost weight). The dress fit great! Because it's form fitting, I would have worn it with a blazer (to hide my tummy), but the fabric hid almost all of my flaws. I am buying this dress!

Super nice dress. Totally unique! It fits perfectly. Hugs you in in all the right places. My only issue was that because I am so short, it was too long. I ended up pinning it and it was way better.

This was a formal cocktail party where my husband was begin introduced for a new position.
Since the event was business, but with donors and major stakeholders, I wanted to look nice than business, but be in line with an after work event. Also, with the focus on my husband, I wanted to shine, but not too much! Lastly, it was VERY COLD. Perfect choice! You should be body confident in this dress, by the way. Material is heavy, cut is wonderful, but this is a curve hugging dress. Good longer length and fun zippers that do to look cheap to zip or unzip for leg.
