Rated 5 out of 5 by KayAnn Love This Caftan
I got the blue and it's wonderful. Liked it so much I'm back to get the black and grey pattern. The mosaic tile effect is lovely and it drapes like a dream on your body. The fabric is substantial, I don't find it too heavy but will say that I prefer the feel of a lighter fabric. As another review said, it would be so nice if it had pockets. The border edges add so much to the design. I am 5" 9' and the regular length is perfect for me. Perfect to throw on in the evening or morning and with sandals and bangle bracelets can go to a party. Very versatile if you travel. Well made, very flattering to the body without any cling. Perfect piece to have when you have guests in your home. LOVE IT!!

When I opened the package, the first thing I noticed was the odor of the fabric. I tried airing for several days then hand washed. The smell is still there: not as strong, but there. Not sure what I will do. Not what I have gotten from J.R. before or expected. Color and style okay.

Give an unfavorable review on a Joan Rivers item. But what I found wrong in this caftan isn't what made Joan, "Joan!" She was an amazing, kind, compassionate person, who was also ONE.of a kind.
I have a feeling that Joan wouldn't be thrilled with the design of this caftan. The color & pattern are beautiful. The seaming is great and cover the body beautifully. BUT, the fabric is heavy and the garment is ruined by that. I wore it yesterday morning, it couldn't have had it on more than 90 minutes and I was SO very uncomfortable. The fabric is like the unbearably heavy poly from the original fabric, back in the 70's. I just could not leave it on. And looking ahead to the hot and humid weather in the NE summer's; I just could not imagine it.
David, you are such a dear gentleman, this really could be an awesome caftan. Sadly, this is going back. Just cannot imagine wearing this anywere. Please change the fabric to something cool, breathable and comfy!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fancy1 Pure quality and comfort!
My first ever caftan - glad it is one of Joan's! The construction is wonderful, As David quoted Joan, "it is a Spanx-free zone," but it has shape. The side seams assure that it hangs straight and doesn't twist or pull to one side.This is not just a big tent. The fabric has a beautiful drape, doesn't wrinkle and feels yummy against your skin. I got the coral and I love the soft blend of colors. My only two "wishes" are: that there were pockets and that I had gotten the petite. I am 5'5," 145, and got the Medium/regular. I will probably have it hemmed, because I will wear it with flat sandals.

I am very disappointed in this Joan Rivers Caftan and find I need to return it. It is much heavier than I expected - I thought it would be a much lighter weight fabric. But what I can't get past is the smell of the fabric. I'm not sure what the smell is from, but sadly it is being returned today.
Rated 4 out of 5 by firstlady Nice quality
Hefty knit fabric, if that's what you want. The coral is very pretty on a white background. The blue is on a decidedly cream background and isn't nearly as pretty as the coral on white. I bought a small and it is very flattering with room to move but not enough to be overwhelming. I'm a size 10, 5'6", 145 pounds. I love the way the small fits and looks and will keep the coral and return the blue which I think looks dingy. Very nice quality and workmanship, but I still wonder if the price is a tad high. I'll wear this on summer evenings to lounge in, or in the mornings in lieu of a robe.
