M by Marc Bouwer Animal Printed Caftan with Embellishment
This is so light, sheer, flowy & beautiful. I ordered this to wear for the summer as a beach cover-up or as a maxi dress. It needs to be ironed thoroughly. I'm so impressed just how stunning & well fitting this is. It is beautiful! A good value for 2 pieces w/ beading embellishment on the caftan. I have already worn the set as a maxi out to lunch, w/ stacked wedges & later w/ gold flats shopping in NYC w/ my mother. I will still use the caftan alone as a beach cover-up & the sheer dress walking into town over a bathing suit. The set is a true head turner. I truly love it... Thank you Marc Bouwer!
What a find! BUY BUY!
I needed a cover up for this swim season and grabbed this becuase I trust M by Marc Bouwer brand with great items in my wardrobe. I am not kidding when I say EVRYTIME I wear this I receive compliments. Im 5'9 usually size 10/12 hourglass shape but went with XL gray to make sure it was flowing since I only bought it to thow over my swimsuit. I could easily wear a large and am ordering the brown in Large for the great maxi dress it has become. You can switch belts but I can wrap the existing belt around twice really give a nice hourglass shape. I wear it to our waterpark and it is great since it dries well after water rides when I get soaked by my kids. I also throw it on after self tanning for an hour or so rather than run around naked or have clothes rub my tanning in process. I lounge in it and a neighbor saw me and said" Wow, aren't you fancy..." I look so fab and fashionable in this and I LOVE IT,
Great For Petites
No need to hem for my 5'3" stature. However, without a little spandex in the fabric (Aren't we spoiled?) please consider going up a size. Be aware the "click here" waist measurement is the very same as the HIP measurement which is not stated due to the straight down the sides stitching of the garment which is seven (7) inches in from the edge of the black border. Soooo...on the XS, for example, the 42" inches may be OK in the bust but not so OK in the hips, particularly when sitting and vice versa, depending on how you are built. BTW, there's no stretch in the liner slip, either. Other than the above this is well made, tastefully embellished at the neckline, multi-use, beautiful Divaesque caftan.
Two great pieces. I feel like royalty when I wear this. I've even dressed this up and worn it out as a maxi dress, and got many compliments. Great quality, just size up because the fabric has no stretch, which is the reason I only gave it 4 stars.
I bought this in my normal QVC size small, even though, I am only 5 feet tall and curvy. The fit is perfect, the many ways you can tie or blouson makes it even better. Looks as if you would have paid much more for this garment. Thank you Mr. Marc Bouwer for bringing us such great fashion. Love your work.
too tight across the middle
This is a beautiful caftan I even sized up as advised, however, it is so tight across the middle you have to wear spanx with it.. Caftan should be cut for relaxing not holding your tummy in!!!
sizing but nice and quality
this dress is very stunning, ordered that grey in a Medium I normally am a sm to med in qvc. I'm a 10 , embellishments are very nice as well. Now the upset, put on the slip, fit was fine and a bit big great then i tried on the caftan it was smaller than the slip, tight thru the hips and very blousey thru the top I am 5'3 and didn't need heels belting the garment I had to pull belt up to my waist so made top even more blousey . I'd size up, even though I didn't take that chance. To costly for return shipping, liking/disliking I can see paying return shipping but for garment defectiveness sizing issues such as above shouldn't be. It could have been a 5 star & a keeper if it was made properly
beautuful but runs small......
I was sooo excited when I took this out of the package, until I put it on...it was too small.....runs very small......so size up.....
