Wrap dresses are considered some of the most flattering styles around, often featuring a plunging neckline to show off the collarbone, a wraparound silhouette that highlights the waist, and a subtle flared skirt that camouflages any potential trouble areas. 

We all have designer Diane von Furstenberg to thank for pioneering this ever-popular cut, which has inspired countless similar styles for more than four decades. One such dress has been making the rounds online, and it’s been racking up hundreds of five-star reviews in the process.

What is it?

The Women's Classic Cap Sleeve Wrap Dress is one of Amazon’s top-rated styles, and it happens to be one of their in-house designs from their professional, yet feminine, label Lark & Ro. Starting at just $50, this affordable and versatile dress comes at a fraction of the cost of pricey designer versions.  

Available in sizes XS to XL (it also comes in a plus-size version up to a 5X), this timeless style features cap sleeves and a flattering tulip skirt, along with a signature wrap silhouette that gathers at the waist. Made from an elevated knit fabric that drapes over the body, it is available in a huge range of colours and patterns to suit any occasion.

What shoppers are saying

With a 4.4-star rating on more than 1,200 reviews, shoppers are loving the versatility of this dress, with reviewers sharing that they’re worn it everywhere from the office to weddings. 

“This dress is a beautiful fit, makes your body look sexy and elegant. Fabric is amazing, good weight to it, drapes perfectly and shows off your curves and small waist,” reads one review. 

“I love the fit and feel of this dress. It drapes well, and neckline stays in place. The pattern covers any flaws and undergarment lines, and is figure flattering,” adds another. 

Despite all the love, some shoppers have noted that the V-neckline is slightly too low for their preference. Luckily, they’ve also offered some easy solutions if you’re looking for more coverage.  

“I liked this dress, but found the neckline too low and the arm holes too big for office wear,” shared one reviewer. “The problem can be easily solved with a camisole or cardigan, but I much prefer the effortlessness of putting on a dress and not thinking about matching anything else.”

“Beautiful drape to the nicely weighted fabric, gathered wrap edge makes a very flattering fit and looks great from any angle,” added another. “Shows the girls quite a bit so I pin the top for more coverage and I prefer a smooth look so I wear a body slimmer underneath.”

The verdict

If you’re looking for a flattering, easy-to-wear dress with a hint of sex appeal, then this could be a great option to add to your wardrobe. It’s comfortable, able to be dressed up or down, and most importantly, affordable.

This dress does feature a deep V-neckline that shows more cleavage than some may be comfortable with. If that’s the case, then you may want to consider layering a camisole underneath, or opting for one of the brand’s other more covered-up styles.
