$$Feelin' rich and fancy$$
Wearing this dress is like lying down on a bed of Benjamins, only better. It is luxurious, edgy, and completely unique. I felt amazing and it was a topic of conversation all night. I wish I could own it and I will definitely rent it again. The sizing is bizarre - I ordered the 44R based on the size chart which is supposed to be equivalent to a US size 6 (which is the largest size it comes in, how Italian). I was nervous it would be too small since I normally wear an 8/M but it was too big on me - I had to pin it in the back to take it in around the waist and it was gappy around my chest. As others have said, the slit in front can be problematic. It came to above my crotch and the only thing holding the dress closed are two clasps under your chest that have a tendency to come undone. I wore some black Spanx shorts underneath just to be safe and I'm so glad I did - when you sit down or brush up against something, nothing is left to the imagination. I wore a bralet underneath to peak out as others suggested, and even though it didn't show I'm glad I wore it because the dress has a tendency to gap in the front when you sit down and it's extremely low cut. Overall, amazing dress. Be careful on the sizing and peep show effect.

Nice, a little dull.
Very high quality construction, not really very dramatic, the cape is very subtle. I wore a zero and usually wear a four.

Loved this! Very modern.
One thing to note - you will need to wear something underneath as the slit is very high. May be better for ladies with larger bust size than I have. It was a little loose. Might have been able to go down to a 40? Many compliments!

Feelin' fancy and fierce in Philosophy
It takes a certain type of style aesthetic and confidence to pull this baby off, but if you're willing to rock it right it pays off. It's quite the statement maker and pretty dramatic, but in a cool way. The material is heavy and luxurious. The cape is subtle and chic. And the clasps, which closed around my rib cage, kept the top of the dress fitted to my bust while the skirt flowed nicely to above my ankle. The neck is cut a little low so I wore a sheer black bra which peaked out a bit but also added something sexy to the look. Kept with the minimalistic and tailored look of the dress with pulled back hair, simple gold jewelry, and black stiletto peep toe mules. The bag is loeffler Randall and I rented it through RTR too. Some words of advice--make sure to wear a black body suit or slip as the slits of the dress go up very high. Go for a low cut undergarment though so that the deep V neckline can be shown off. Also, if you're not sure about the size go for the smaller option because the dress will end up looking like a sloppy coat or robe if it's too baggy.

Stylist Review!
This piece is so fun! The cape detailing is different from anything I've seen. If you are looking to make a high fashion statement I would highly recommend it! I would almost call it a long vest because you can wear it open or closed and absolutely need to wear a slip underneath. There are only two buttons so the slit goes all the way to the top of the thighs. It also has a very deep v neckline and you can't really wear a bra with it, but the extremely thick/heavy material helps hold everything in place. It runs true to size, but I would size down as backup. Love this style and will absolutely be wearing it out again!

The cape made this vest the CONVERSATION PIECE of the night!!
I wore this look to a funeral for my mentor who was a costume designer. I know its not the average outfit to wear to a memorial service but since it was at Howard University I got away with it. Pairing it with the Cushnie dress underneath made my look flirty, fun and daring.

Stunning, modern dress with a cape(!) in the back. Simple, but a showstopper. Just enough edge.
It fit perfectly, but the slit is very deep, so sitting down was a little revealing. Also, the deep v-neck is completely on-trend, but it's not for the shy. This a real "fashion" dress that takes a good deal of confidence to pull off. I had at least 7 people come up to me at the Kennedy Center Honors to ask who I was wearing and say they loved the dress.
