What Our Customers Are Saying

"This is my favorite go-to dress that makes me feel beautiful, hugs in all the right places and really shows off my curves. As someone who fluctuates between a size 8 and 10, it can be really hard to find a brand and style that truly fits me, and the material and cut from the Connected Apparel line really are so body positive and compliment my shape regardless of how my body may change (as our bodies do). They are also so comfortable while being very trendy and chic! Thank you for being a brand that embraces all shapes of women!" - Suzette B.

"I was initially hesitant to make a purchase from a company that was new to me, and I am absolutely thrilled that I took the leap! Customer service is outstanding: all communication took place in a timely manner and my package arrived quickly‚ and much faster than other competitors. The packaging of the garment was lovely and truly individualized. The quality that you expect to receive with boutique shopping. My garment was wrapped in tissue and sealed with/ a sticker. I also received a handwritten card thanking me for my purchase. Love these details. The jumpsuit itself is SASSY! The cut is generous and it flatters the areas that I appreciate about my body and skims the areas that need work. I purchased a pair of crinkle gold sandals to wear along with the jumpsuit and feel that I could give a younger Blanche Devereaux a run for her money! (Truth be told, I think this garment could easily transition across many age ranges and still look phenomenal). Love, love, love it! I highly recommend this jumpsuit! Thank you very much!" - Jessica S.

"This dress fit like a glove! Being a plus size women, it's hard to find dresses that fit just right in all the right places. Overall the dress accentuates my curves, roomy in the belly area and a perfect fit on the arms. The fabric quality is also well above what I expected. CA, you have earned a customer for life!” - Dalia V.

"Connected Apparel got this dress right in every way! The drape neck and the elbow-length sleeve are universally flattering. The Jersey knit fabric is smooth and substantial without being too heavy. I own this style of dress by Connected Apparel in both prints and solids. They are my go to and travel nicely. 5 stars Connected Apparel." - Theresa D.

“This dress was the perfect choice for my daughter's graduation. It was so comfortable as we moved from the early morning ceremony to brunch to grad party hopping. Something about the way Connected Apparel designed the dress makes it fit so well, hugging my body in the right places and holds its shape through a long and eventful fun day. P.S. this dress is so versatile, I was able to wear it to a board meeting a few days later!” - Kirstin C.
