Fantastic dress with a bit of drama

I loved this dress!! The size 0 didn't arrive back in time and RTR sent me another option along with the size 2. I would have liked to have tried the 0. But since the dress had a boxy fit to begin with the 2 worked just fine. As always sad to send back!

STYLIST REVIEW

This piece is very well made and is truly versatile. I wore this to lunch with a friend by pairing with some of my more casual pieces. You may also wear this with a pair of heels and make it into a cocktail look. True to size. Comfortable. Standard bra friendly

This was such a fun dress to wear! The cape which is built in was so much fun to dance in.

The only thing bad I can say about it is that if you are dancing and put your hands up the whole dress goes up and gets quite short since the cape is attached. But it was still a great dress.

Felt like a total power babe...do it, rent a cape dress, you can pull it off, I promise!

This dress is the bomb. It fit perfectly, I felt amazing, and was complimented all night long! Totally obsessed with this dress...thought about running off to Mexico with it. Also love the RTR system...dress arrived on time and return was crazy easy.

This dress was a huge hit! Everyone loved it.

I'm normally a size 8 or 10. They didn't have the 8, but the 10 fit fine. A perfect dress for a party! I got tons of compliments on it all night! Very unique and different. The only downfall of it was it was hard to dance in...

I received so many compliments on the dress!

This dress was a hit! Wore it to a anniversary party and people were complimenting me all night. It's simplicity spoke volumes. And for a 47 degree NYC night, the cape was the extra lining I needed to keep me warm. Only con is that I ordered both a size 14 and 12 and while the 12 did fit, it was riding up so I changed into the 14 but I noticed that the neckline on the 12 was smaller and didn't show my bra straps as appose to the 14 where I guess because it was a bigger size it meant a bigger neck opening so it was kind of falling off my shoulders a bit but other than that I have no complaints about this dress. I'm sure I'll be ordering the white one soon!

It was unique without being too much of a standout at my friend's rehearsal dinner.

I loved the length! It wasn't too short, totally perfect. I also loved that I didn't need to wear a jacket with this. I paired it with a very sparkly necklace and got lots of compliments all night long.

Stopped by strangers all night with compliments

This was fun to wear. It was a show-stopper. I didn't make it through the aisles of the silent auction fundraiser without someone stopping me to tell me I looked "stunning" or "gorgeous." One person told me I was "superwoman" and they wanted this dress. The fabric was thick enough to shield the chilly November weather, but not so thick that I was hot in the indoor event. Definitely worth renting again.

Classy, classy, classy!

This fit very true to size. The fabric is beautiful and thick. The length was a bit above my knees which added a little flirty edge to the conservative top. It fit wonderfully and had a bit of stretch. It did not ride up at all which was amazing. I felt like a queen. It was classy and beautiful and perfect for a holiday get together.

Great customer service

The fit of this was perfect. The weight of the material was perfect for the colder weather. I rented a great statement necklace and clutch that really complimented the dress. Unfortunately, the dress arrived with the seam undone where the cape attached to the right side of the dress and the backup size was way too big. Everyone was very helpful and I got a replacement style to wear to the event in time. I know they will be fixing the dress and I highly recommend it. Very beautiful and unique.

Wore this dress for a NYE black tie wedding, SO many compliments and right on trend for the season!

I'm a very short, not very thin girl and this dress was incredibly flattering, hid my arms, was so sleek and classic. On trend with even what I just saw on the #goldenglobes #redcarpet ! Jewelry was also from RTR and just fit perfectly. Was the standout dress of the night, other than the bride, of course! Such a wonderful experience from RTR from the packaging and how everything came, to how easy they made it to ship back. Other than it arriving a day late, perfect experience. Would HIGHLY recommend and am telling everyone I know about it!!

Dress was really big on, but it wasn't very noticeable because it's not a fitted style.

Dress was really big on, but it wasn't very noticeable because it's not a fitted style. So I was able to wear it anyways, but I should have rented two sizes down. I have just never worn a 0 in my life!!!

Looking great (and warm) for New Years Eve!

This is a simple dress with a lot of flair. The capelet was gorgeous and helps to keep you warm in winter nights. The dress runs true to size and the fabric doesn't have much stress. It's also a great fit for petite girls, as it isn't overly long, and the cape doesn't overpower the dress. Would definitely rent again.

It was true to size and the 'cape' feature was modern and sexy all rolled into one. I will definitely rent this dress again in the future.

This dress was perfect for my post baby body. I want something classy and sophisticated that could disguise my baby weight. The fabric is comfortable and forgiving; the cape is great for indoor/outdoor affairs. Loved it!!!

So many compliments in this gorgeous dress! The cape is so fun and makes heads turn.

Super comfortable dress, heavy fabric makes it perfect for a winter event. Only con is it's difficult to hug people (and I'm a hugger), because the whole dresses rises up. Not a big deal though. Fit true to size, if not a little big for me. Perfect because you can wear normal undergarments.

Is that a cape?!?

I typically wear a size 6 in dresses but 8-10 in pants. The dress was definitely snug around my waist and hips but not tight. The top was a bit loose. Be careful when stretching your arms as the cape doesn't lend for much flexibility. (I talk with my hands a lot so this was super awkward for me.) On the flip side, I've never received so many compliments on a dress. No one could get over how pretty I looked or how cool the cape was. It was a stunner for sure.

This is very different because of cape- stand out dress!

Very comfortable. Got lots of compliments about how different it was because of the cape. True to size- would have like one size smaller but it wasn't available. Highly recommend if you are looking for something a little different. Only downside was that I was a little hot at times because of cape.

Comfortable, sleek, classy

Flattering cut, lovely material--very sturdy and heavier than expected. Best for cooler weather! It was simple and elegant, I received many compliments and felt great. I normally wear a 2 but ordered a 4 as well just in case. The 2 fit beautifully.

I had the "IT" look

This dress was perfect for a semi-formal banquet that I attended. The dress was very chic and complimentary to my shape. I went with the size O (which was my back up) because a lot of the other reviews said the dress ran big and I glad I did. I received compliments all night and I posted a picture on IG and tagged Trina Turk and she liked the picture as well

The Perfect Dress

I wore this dress to a fundraiser and it was perfect. I received tons of complements. I tend to get cold so the cape was perfect for keeping me warm. The dress is heavy but it didn't bother me because I like a dress with a little weight. If you get hot easily it might not be the dress for you. Overall I absolutely loved the dress, how it fit and how it moved with me. You can't go wrong with this dress.

This dress fit so great!! I would order it again.

I ordered a 12 because of the other reviews that said it didn't have any shape. I am curvy so it definitely hugged me very well and I received plenty of compliments. My fiancé asked me to see if I could buy it somewhere! Lol

Most fashionable witch

Such a cool dress with the cape. It was perfect for a witch costume but also as every day elegance. The cape add so much glamour to a simple black dress. The material is thick so this is a great dress in cooler weather. Overall fits true to size and you can wear any type of bra and undies underneath.

fit perfectly, and I was worried it would be too short based on other reviews. It was just the right mix of polish and chic, and was event-appropriate for a holiday work party. Would definitely rent again. Seriously with this cape, I couldn't get enough

Amazing cape dress! A must rent!

I'm 4 months pregnant and didn't want the bump to obviously show, specially in pictures. This dress hid it perfectly and was super comfortable all night. I normally wear a size 2 or 4, but rented the size 8 and it fit perfectly around my bump and 14 lb weight gain (currently around 137 lbs and wasn't sure what size to rent). I paired it with thigh-high boots and a simple short necklace. Compliments all night!

This dress was easy and looked great on. Also, I felt appropriately dressed without feeling bare

Fits pretty true to size, maybe slightly larger than most size 8 dresses. There is a little give in the fabric

This dress is beautiful! It fits like a sleeve, and is extremely comfortable. It runs true to size. I received continuous compliments all night, and am still receiving compliments now....a week later! I highly recommend this dress for a semi-formal event! I have never been disappointed by RTR!!!!
