Soft Frame Case for iPhone 5
I bought this case a couple months ago and I do not recommend this. After about a month of handling the design on this soft case started to peel of and it was very upsetting being the price was very high for such a low quality case. I think these cases are stunning, but I recommend getting a "snap-on" case, which is a lot nicer anyways;

Keeps iPhone protected and makes it cute!
I have been eyeing this VB product since last summer when they released the Fall patterns and was in love with the design they came up with for Heather, but I had an iPhone 4s at the time so I wasn't able to purchase it. I didn't get the iPhone 5s until January of this year, but that's when VB released new colors and I instantly loved the Blue Bayou design. I got the case as a gift for my birthday and so far I have no complaints. I like that it grips to everything so it does not easily slide off of anything. A reviewer commented that their backing was coming off, that is not a problem I have had. I actually notice 0 wear on the case at all. The colors are still bright and vibrant. I was worried that the little bit of white that is on it would show dirt, but it's still just as white as it was when I took it out of the package. I am always very careful with my phone and I can only remember dropping it once onto tile flooring face down and there was no damage done to the phone because the case saved it :) I just purchased this case in the new pattern Flower Shower and am excited to switch it up! Will definitely be buying this case in new patterns as long as VB releases them.

I purchased this rubber phone case about a month ago and loved it at first! Then about two weeks later I noticed the design on the back started peeling off in the top corner almost like a sticker. Then after another two weeks the whole back design started peeling off on the sides, corners, and indentation where the camera is. I am very disappointed by this product and will not be purchasing another.

Super Cute and Easy to Grip!
I just visited a Vera Bradley store for the very first time and bought
3 of these rubber phone cases! They are priced lower than similar
plain color versions at the Apple Store and are also less expensive than
other brands such as Kate Spade, Coach and Brighton. The patterns are fun and they are easy to switch out since they fit snug to the case but are not too tight around the edges. Looking forward to using these!

Eye-catching iPhone Case
I bought this case in Canterberry Magenta and love the bright, bold pattern which I can spot anywhere in my purse. The rubber has a nice, soft feel with comfortable grip. My only wish is that the surrounding frame was made of a stiffer or more sturdy rubber as there are times when I pull my phone out of a small pocket in my purse, the phone will start to come loose from the case. Also, I agree with another reviewer who feels that the rubber near the home button is a bit flimsy. As a result, I make extra effort to be very gentle when handling it for fear it will rip if I am not careful. Hopefully this case will last and I won't need to buy a new one any time soon as I love everything else about it.

Drop proof-so far
I have this case for my work phone and I feel like it offers more protection than the hard shell cases from VB. I have dropped my phone many times since putting the case on, however it is yet to show it! I was a little disappointed to find that venetian paisley is really just a navy chevron pattern, which does not look very VB, but that was my fault for not looking carefully. and otherwise I really like this product! In fact, I wish they sold a soft frame case for iphone 4-4s for my non-work phone!!!

I had the hard slide case in Ribbons and I liked it, but it was kind of difficult to figure out the slide feature and it was slippery. So I was in the Vera Bradley store the other day and saw this case in the Olivia Pink colors. It's a bit pricey, hence the 4 stars instead of 5, but it's cute, very easy to get on and off the phone and doesn't feel like the phone will go flying accidentally. I recently needed to have my phone ear receiver repaired and I don't know if it's a result of the few times that my phone slipped out of my hand with the old case. I don't worry about that as much with this one. Like I said, it's a bit pricey and I wish they had more of a variety of colors, but it's a decent case. Some reviewers are saying it doesn't hang over on the top, but I think if it did, it might interfere with the front facing camera so I didn't find that to be a big deal. I like the case.

Bad if you have long hair
The case is pretty and would probably protect the phone, but I switched back to my old case because as I took the phone away from my ear, it gripped my shoulder-length, fine hair and pulled it. Ouch! Carefully pulling the phone away from my hair after a call got old fast.

I love the print but...
I love the case but it always falls off of my phone because the top doesn't have enough overhang on the top! Kind of disappointing, I wish that they had the hybrid shell case in heather. First item I've ever gotten that I didn't care fore.

I got this case yesterday in the Heather pattern. I love everything about it and have absolutely no complaints. I was thrilled when I saw that rubber cases had been made and I went out and got it as soon as I could. It completely lived up to my expectations. I love that despite being rubber, it's still very sleek and small. It's grippy enough to keep hold of but not too grippy that it's difficult to get in and out of your purse or pocket. Great access to all the buttons/ controls. I'd highly recommend this to anybody, you WILL NOT be disappointed! :)
