This dress was simple, elegant yet very comfortable for a chilly night on the town in NYC.
This dress is great for fall/winter. The fabric is thick, great for a chilly night out where you might wear a wrap. I wore it will booties and statement earrings and it was so elegant. I would LOVE to own this dress.

Best Dress I've Ever Worn
This dress was the most flattering dress I've ever worn. I got so many compliments on it and everyone thought the "cape" aspect was very cool. If I could have kept this dress, I would have in a heartbeat. I ordered a size 6, and then a size 8 as a backup. The size 6 fit, but was a little tight, and I felt more comfortable in the size 8.

It was a fun, unique dress that was not too showy but it definitely had some pizzazz!
It is more of a straight fit through and through. So, if you have hips, it is a little tighter there. But it is definitely still doable because I have hips and I wore it. I got lots of compliments on it!! The material and weight of the dress was a little heavier than I anticipated....which was not a bad thing...because it doubled up as a jacket and a dress all in one!

Having the cape!
The dress itself is fitted, but very forgiving. The cape is attached on the sides and takes it from a standard LBD to a statement LBD, but still understated. I had so many compliments, which is always nice, but I was still able to move around as much as I needed as I was hosting a dinner for 50. I wore it with flats and it worked just fine. I was concerned that the flats would look awkward but the dress is so adaptable, it could be worn with just about anything.

Nice dress, maybe not for hippy women.
I was really excited about this dress. I liked it, but it's not for hippy people. I'm a 4/6 up top and a 8/10ish on the bottom. The 8 fit my hips, but the top was baggy. Thankfully you couldn't really see because of how the dress was cut. I got a lot of compliments though!

I wore this dress to a charity gala 22 weeks pregnant and it was perfect!
The cape adds an extra flair you wouldn't normally have in a little black dress. I'm normally an 8 in Trina and wore that size 22 weeks pregnant. It hid my bump perfectly and from the front you couldn't tell I was pregnant. Very chic style!

That my niece enjoyed her sweet sixteen.
I received compliments from the moment I stepped into the venue and as soon as I posted it on my social media sites. The dress was sexy without being over revealing. The cape added wonderful details and was a surprise

Kept me warm and made me feel sassy!
This dress is a heavier material, so it was perfect for a February party. It kept me warm! The cape detail is so fun and made me feel sassy. I felt like it was very flattering, and it ran true to size. I think it would work really well with most body types.

Gorgeous dress and I got a TON of compliments.
Runs large- i'm normally between a 4 and a 6, and I actually wore the size 2 (my backup size). Order down for your backup. I would have given this 5 stars- but there was a smell in the armpit area on both dresses - very noticeable on the size 4. I have had this problem with RTR before- dresses with sleeves always seem to come with an odor- its almost as if they do not wash them every single time they send it back. Wish it wasn't so- but this might be the last time I rent.

You must rent this dress
I wore this amazing dress on a date night. It's stunning, flattering, so expensive looking - I really can't say enough positive things. Seriously, just rent it! Just keep in mind, though, that if you're in colder temps, you'll need to wear a cape coat as well.

A cape at the opera...
A flattering, elegant dress that received so many complements. A bit tongue in cheek to wear a cape at the opera...perhaps why so many people stopped me to say how beautiful it is. Fit: wore the 8 with a 10 back up. Sexy shorter length made me choose the 8. I could sit just fine. Any undergarment will be concealed. Because the cape covers your torso, you can have bare legs and super high heels & not look trashy.

Amazing amazing amazing!!!
Im a 10 in dresses and a 12 if they run small but I could have gone with the 8 in this however it would have been tight in the chest. (36D) This dress made me feel awesome esp after having a baby because it hides every flaw imaginable. If I wasn't losing weight, I'd buy this in a heart beat. I had strangers coming up to me asking where I got this because it's so unique. I wore to a wedding and didn't have trouble dancing and it was perfect for the outside cocktail hour which was outside and a tad chilly. Would not recommend in the summer of it's an outside event and it's hot because the dress is alittle in the heavy side. I will totally rent this again. I'm over 5'9" and it still was an appropriate length. Will not disappoint.

Pregnant Lady: Love the cape! Fit the belly, but not the booty.
This was my first pick and I didn't end up using it for the event. I am 6 months pregnant and I read a few reviews that said the dress was favorable for baby bumps. I can honestly say that my tummy fit in the dress, but I didn't realize that the dress was so straight cut. There is no give or stretch. It ended up hugging my hips and behind like a club dress and I didn't like it. If you are a person with hips and thighs I'd suggest sizing up to accommodate. The overall make and quality of the dress is great, but wasn't great for my body type.

RENT THIS
I was originally worried this might be too much for a business attire DC reception, but I'm so glad I went with my gut and wore it! I got so many compliments. The dress part itself fits great, very simple and not too tight but not a tent either. The cape adds just enough drama and class. Just rent this dress!

This chic dress helped me slay on a fashion show red carpet!
I rented this dress for a uber fashionable fashion show. I chose it because it was simple, chic, and totally fierce with that cape! The dress fit just a but tight around my hips, but spanx did the trick. I wanted to go with the size 12 but it was unavailable. The fabric is quite heavy, but it serves to keep the shape of the cape. The dress hit my leg mid thigh, making my legs look longer and more slender! I pared the look with really large, bold earrings also from rtr. I got so many compliments on the dress from family, friends, and fashion pros! I 100% recommend this dress and may have to rent it again!

Classic and Room Stopping for All Black Affair!
Wore it to an wedding I was asked to wear black in. Great dress but I love to dance and this dress limits the amount of dancing you can do. I was so afraid I would rip it every time I raised my hands up. Nevertheless, I got compliments ALL day.

The cape look made it unique and made me stand out.
It was true to size. I wish it were a bit shorter; I'm 5 feet. It did have a couple of spots when it arrived that I had to rub out.

Very flattering dress!
I loved this dress. I was a few months pregnant when I rented it and I was judging a beauty pageant. I wore this for the first day of interviews. It was flattering and fit perfectly over my baby bump. The attached cape is perfect for anyone conscious of their arms. You can wear a normal bra. I could move comfortably. It does fit a little snug so if you're going to be raising your arms a lot I would decide against this one. I think this would be perfect for a stylish night out. It's a little on the short side so I wouldn't recommend it for anything conservative.

I wish I could wear this everyday for the rest of my life.
It's a chic, little black dress, with a cape. What more could I ask for? I can barely describe how much I loved it. I'm petite and a little thick in the middle, it fit so well. My guess is that it is versatile for all body shapes and sizes. Made me feel chic, stylish and elegant. It's sold out online so I was tempted to keep it.

Sophisticated and sexy at the same time!
This dress is beautiful and made me feel like a million bucks - I received a ton of compliments. It's also so easy and fun to accessorize. I wore it to a wedding rehearsal. It might be too cumbersome for an event if you plan on dancing a lot because the cape is attached. I would rent this again for a similar event in a heartbeat!

This dress was everything I hoped it would be. The fit (I wore a size 4) was perfect! I get nervous with dresses because Im a DD but this was perfect, not too clingy or short. Received a TON of compliments on it! I would actually rent this dress again that's how much I loved it

Great dress - formal but with a difference.
I wore this dress to a work awards ceremony. It was perfect - formal yet with an edge. Fabric is great and quite stretchy with a fair amount of give. I'm 5' 3" and it cam just above the knee. I accessorized it with the Kate Spade Fox clutch so left other accessories simple. great dress - rent it - you will not be sorry!
