Comfortable and put together

This dress is a tank dress with a cropped sweater overlay. I took a close up picture of the sweater fabric. Very nice. The dress has a side zip and is very fitted but is not too tight. The cropped sweater zips in the back and is attached to the tank dress at the top of the straps. With the heavy fabric, this Dress is a bit of a challenge to get on, but once on lays nicely and does not need additional adjustments. Just make sure to put it on before doing your hair and makeup. If you do not like to emphasize your midsection this may not be the dress for you, but it was fine to wear to work once. Arrived new with tags which is always a bonus.

Not flattering, runs small.

This dress was totally not what I expected based on photos. Very heavy fabric, runs small, not flattering. Got it with tags still on but returned unworn.

Beautiful but too long

I really wanted to wear this dress. It's beautiful and clearly very high quality. Unfortunately it was just too long on me.

Not great for short torsos!

I'm 5'2" with a short torso and found the dress was not very flattering due to the cape overlay. The underlying tank dress is a beautiful thick knit material and very fitted, but with the cape overtop, it hung below my natural waist leaving me looking wider than I had hoped. Because of that, I did not wear it.

Chic - i wish I could keep it

Loved this dress. Great weight for winter, and luxurious feel. Only 4 stars because the fit up top is slightly weird. The shirt is boxy and the dress is tight and fitted. But I wore this a bunch of times to fancy dinners and parties and it was always a hit.

If you have a super flat tummy and hips or spanx this is for you

Wanted to love it as it's beautifully made. However, I just didn't feel comfortable it it. The top is almost a separate piece that hits below the bust so it accentuates the mid section. Didn't have Spanx with me and didn't want to suck in for the entire event!

Conservative LBD

I'm usually a 2/4 and the SR was a bit tight, but because of the stretch in the fabric it was manageable. Needed Spanx to even out the mid-section/backside lumps & bumps. Loved the cropped top overlay, although having it attached to the underlying dress made it difficult to get on and off. Perfect for a cold evening and easy to accessorize. (I wore with the Oscar de la Renta red Dreamcatcher earrings.)

Very fitted. Day-to-night with the right accessories!

This is a midi body con dress. Very flattering! Love the textures of the ribbing on bottom and fine knit for the top.

Fabulous dinner -- looked so good.

Great shape, construction, and fit. Looked so good with black suede booties. Looked great even though I am only 5 ft tall...

Easy to wear!

Super comfortable and feels stylish and work-appropriate. Personally, I'd have preferred it to be just below the knee, and this dress is a tad longer than that on me, but it's a great dress.

Should have read more reviews...

Not much more to add here but second what other reviewers have said about the high quality and construction but unfortunate tummy-enhancing fit of this dress. Beautiful dress, but did not feel confident so did not wear.

Different take on your typical LBD, thick material and so flattering. I LOVED THIS!

I absolutely loved this dress. I wore both for New Years Eve Party and work and it transitioned perfectly. A little tight around the bust and arms, but flexible. You can't tell in photo, but the material is very thick and feels like you are well supported. It adds shape with the tight under dress and looser popover. Different than anything else I've seen on here. Definitely renting again!

Fantastic knit dress.

Great quality knit. Felt very luxe. Didn't notice the dude hidden zipper at first. The two hidden zippers are nice to help put on the double layers easier. Only drawback is it could have draped looser in the chest. Maybe I'll try sizing up, because the top layer rode up when I raised my arms and I was adjusting it constantly.

Wasn't wild about this dress....

This dress was a little odd fitting for me. It is actually a tank sweater dress connected to a cropped sweater. I had trouble with where the two pieces connected (at the shoulder) - it may have just been how it fit me, but I ended up not wearing it. The fabric is nice and heavy/thick, so great for fall, but I think it may be better on a taller person (I am 5'5").

Pretty dress, well made

Well made dress, very nice fabric. This one is super hard to get in and out of. There is a zipper up the side on the under dress and one up the back on the over shirt. Took me forever to dress myself!

CEO worthy style with a flattering fit

I received many compliments on this dress. The slight mermaid cut is very flattering for a petite person. The material is heavy and very high quality.

Cute idea, not the best fit

I liked the idea of the dress but it was complicated to get on/ off and the top hit right at my lower belly "pooch" which was unflattering. Overall, cute idea but didn't fit me well

Cute, but wasn't flattering on me

I liked the idea of this dress but the fabric was stiffer than I anticipated, which resulted in some lumpiness. It also cut me off weirdly at the hips. I think this would fit a straight and narrow person better than someone with a bust and hips.

Not the usual I expect from Proenza

The dress is a ribbed tank dress but too long. The cropped thing on top is too short. I thought this dress was not flattering on my body type and the short crop made it feel very awkward and just waiting for a peekaboo disaster to happen. I returned without wearing to work.

Did not wear

I think that the popover on this dress needs to be bigger...as it is, it doesn't flatter the figure because it is too close to the body. There is a gap, but not big enough to clearly distinguish from the bottom part of the dress. The skirt of the dress is nicely cut though.

Pretty dress.

Kind of hard to get into alone. Very well made but it's a sweater dress with a zipper so the waist line gets thrown off a little. It's gorgeous though.

Not work appropriate

I rented this for work but it was way too form fitting. I would've been very uncomfortable at work and we're not overly formal.
