Rated 4 out of 5Â by quinncx can definitely wear this as a wrap dress
I ordered this robe online because I liked the colors- I somehow completely missed that it features roosters! When it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by the fit- I ordered the large and it fits my size 18 apple figure just fine. Looking at it in the mirror, I was struck by how much more like a dress than a robe it appeared, especially with the 3/4 length sleeves. I'll need to wear a slip or cami to add a bit of coverage to the cleavage but that is common for me in dresses. Definitely a keeper though a dress with roosters may in fact be the quirkiest thing in my wardrobe!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by NativeNCGal A robe AND a dress!
I saw this at my local Anthro store, where it was featured in the lounge wear area. On my way back to the fitting room I noticed another customer wearing it as a dress while shopping in the store. She looked great in it. I truly believe this item serves multiple purposes! I first tried a medium but bought a small in this. There was very little size difference in the top but from the waist down the small fit me better. (5' 6", 130 lbs, 34DD, normally wear 6/8 in dresses & tops, 4/6 in pants/skirts) I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BklynTX This is a robe: its called the Capon ROBE
That said, for those of you of a curvacious figure, maybe you could rock this as a dress, possibly with a lace slip peeking out below, picking up the chartreuse, coral or grey-blue elements. (However, if you plan to wear this as a dress, I'd cut the pockets out - they add too much bulk - which I plan to do even though I will not be wearing this out.) But for those of us that are less well endowed (and middle-aged) this is a ROBE - but a fun one to perk up one's day - and to be able to answer the door without looking like your in a blah, rag-bone robe. Not only is it a wild print (although I admit that I tried on quite a few to get the print placement where it looked best), it has elasticized 3/4 sleeves - so you don't have to roll them up should you find yourself up to your elbows in a mess, and as other reviewers have mentioned, because of its dress-like appearance, you can lounge about in your robe all day and yet feel "dressed". This was a frivolous, luxury purchase for me and I hemmed and hawed for days until finally crowing that it would cheer my home bound days and thus kept it - at full price.
