I wasnt sure how to tie my dress, so i went to the showroom in Toronto and one of the stylists helped me, she was very helpful and showed me multiple styles. Now that I know how to tie it (its actually quite easy) it is a very beautiful and versitile dress. Thank you!
I was worried that this wouldn't work because of how large my bust is but it worked tremendously and I was comfortable the whole 7 hours of wear!
Wore this dress as a coordinator in my cousins wedding! The dress was absolutely beautiful and well made, Not only will I wear this dress again, I will purchase from Henkaa again. LOVE IT!❤️
I love this bandeau! It is a versatile piece in my wardrobe, so much so that I have one in 5 different colours. It’s very comfortable and gives the right amount of coverage. You can wear it under any of the HENKAA convertible dresses or on its own and pair it with some jeans or leggings. You can even wear it with a different coloured dress for a pop of colour . What else can I say ? It’s amazing and a must have !
This dress was wonderful. I previously ordered another convertible dress but sent it back. It did drape as well as this one did due to the slightly lighter material. The straps on the other dress were also shorter, so the Henkaa Sakura Maxi was more versatile. Also, my son did not approve of the see-through nature of the other dress. The Henkaa material was fabulous, soft, perfectly draped, and not see through. It worked out perfectly.
I wear a 42DD bra size so I got the largest size: F but it was too small. I will not be wearing it with the dress, which is too bad. I gave it 3 stars because the quality of the bra is great! The adhesive works very well and it is comfortable--I just wish the cups weren't so small!
I’ve already worn the dress twice - once for a wedding and once for a night out as a skirt. Never have a bought a dress for a wedding and been able to rewear it within a week!! Not to mention I was able to wash it myself! No dry cleaning or ironing required!!
I like this dress a lot more than I originally thought I would. I just wore it as a long sleeve top to a work meeting yesterday and then switched to a halter tunic for dinner out with friends the same night. It’s a great piece to use if you want something versatile but not as complicated as the dresses with all the straps a ties to learn. Like dipping your toes into the convertistyle world.
This dress is great and the fabric is amazing. The only thing is, I knew it said it could take 12 weeks for the made-to-order colors, but that is just sooo long! I almost forgot that I had even ordered a dress in the first place.
I really like the idea of wearing it as lounge-y pants for a lazy day. What other clothing can you use as a nice dress, top, AND pants?!?
I just don’t like that all the dress styles have an uneven hemline. I can understand a high-low, but a low-high just looks too odd for my liking. If you don’t usually wash new clothing before wearing it, please wash your henkaa dresses before wearing! The darker colors will definitely bleed all over you and any other surface or clothing they touch, so just make sure you wash them with like colors before doing anything else. Just pulling mine out of the package made my hands start to turn black, so I’m glad I noticed pretty quick.
At first the straps were really hard for me to maneuver, but once you practice a little, this dress becomes a great warmer-weather dress. It’s great to take for vacation, to go over a swimsuit, or just anything you can think of. I really only think of it as a summer dress, maybe since I got such a bright color, but you might be able to find styles to work for other seasons too, maybe as a long tunic top over pants or as a maxi skirt with tights to keep you warm?
The overlays are a great way to dress up a Sakura dress without having to buy a whole other dress! I wore it to a wedding and got a lot of compliments. And with the different colors in the overlay, I can wear it with many different henkaa dresses as well as dresses from other brands. Another great way to dress up a look without buying a whole new outfit.
Same material and color as all the dresses, just with an elastic band around the top. It’s great if you want a little more coverage to wear a strapless bra with any wrap style or to add a second color to your look either under the dress as the bandeau or over the dress as a waistband. I have 6 or 7 already in different colors and I think they are an easy and effective way to change up a look.
The maxi dress is way longer than I thought it would be, but it’s also a raw edge, so I could cut it down if I decide too. (I’m also only like 5’1”, so if you are tall then it’s probably just fine for you). I like the fact that the reversible style offers me even more ways to wear an already super versatile dress. The possibilities are endless
