Stunning Byron Lars melodist dress
Had originally purchased the carrissima sheath, although it was lovely, there was a problem with the lace over the bust not laying properly. Exchanged it for this one. This dress is gorgeous! The green in it is beautiful! The top is not lace, it's material with cut outs. Somewhat fragile, have to be careful with jewelery. I ordered a 2 regular. I'm 5'3, but had to order the regular as this dress in a petite measures 36.25". All other Byron Lars dresses in petite measure 39", in this one it was
... read more what the regular measured. After confirming with anthro that the info was accurate and not a misprint, I decided on the regular. Wise decision! The dress hits me right at the knee. The dress is stunning. It is however hard to get on, and much harder to take off. I needed help from my hubby. (Once on, you won't want to take it off, it's that beautiful). Am going to try and find a green belt to match. Looking forward to wearing it end of August to a vineyard wedding. Will post a pic than.

Love this dress
This dress was a splurge for me but I absolutely love it. I ordered my normal size 2 regular and it fit perfectly! (FYI...I am 5'4" 125 lbs, hips 38" waist 27" bust 32C) The material is well constructed and well worth the price. I wore it to a wedding last night and plan on wearing it to another next month.
This dress is very beautiful. However, as with the other Bryan Lars dresses I've tried, the bottom is simply too tight with the waist bunching significantly due to being loose. I believe this dress would be better for those who have more of a straight and/or slim figure. Also, the zipper on the dress I tried on in the store did not work well at all. For reference, I'm 5'8" 135# and 36-27-37.

Maybe someone here can answer me, as customer service won't answer this question nor a question on a return, but can you wear this without bra straps or bands showing? Thanks.

Byron Lars makes beautiful pieces, but fit can be tricky . . . My local Anthro finally got some of this dress in after I ordered the similar one but in the blue and pink-ish hue online and it didn't fit . . . Usually I am a size 4, but depending on fit I am occasionally a 6 . . .In this, I'm a 6 . . .The 4 zipped up but was too tight to sit comfortably, etc. . . .These dresses are beautifully made, lots of detail . . .Not for wearing just anywhere given how dressy they are . . . For reference
... read more I'm 5'6", 128 lbs, for those looking for sizing . . .I wish more people would share this info online, as it is really hard to gauge sizing online . . .
Bought this dress for engagement photos and was a little worried about sizing, but when I got it it fit perfectly and was very comfortable. It runs true to size. My only complaint is that there was a missing button on the sleeve, but because there was an extra it was easily fixed. Definitely recommend!

Cute, but a few things diff from pic
Overall this is a cute dress but I think there are a few things the pics don't depict well...
Firstly, this is a baby doll style dress - and only 5'5 so if taller, even more so. Secondly, the base color is more royal blue. Looks closer to navy in pics, is not.
The pics make the fabric look more like cotton. It's rayon-which they say clearly in the description but I thought worth noting. While I prefer the look of cotton this dress is wrinkle proof which is a plus.

Beautiful dress! It is definitely baby doll style and fits tts. I am 5'8" and it hits me mid thigh. Swingy shape, but ties in the back give it some structure. Love the Rifle Paper Co pattern! It has a sheer black lining underneath, but as the description says the base color of the pattern is a dark peacock blue. Perfect fall to winter transition dress. I expect that I will get a lot of wear out of this one. Wish there were more like it.
I really like the colours and design of this dress, even the holes at the arms I don't mind, I think it makes the dress even more interesting! What I didn't like it's the fit of this dress' shoulders and arms, I'm 5'7" and about size 10 or 12 at times, but the sleeves and shoulders were way too tight. When I tried on the large the body of the dress was too large for me but the sleeves fit ok. Didn't buy it because of that reason which is too bad as I really LOVED the colours and the material

Great dress for autumn
I bought this dress to wear to work and for Thanksgiving dinner this year. It is very comfortable and I always love pockets in a dress! The fit was perfect as a petite size and the openings in the sleeve don't bother me at all.

Beautiful colors. The shape is boxy, but it is supposed to be like that. It falls just above my knee, I am 5'5", 132 lbs and I got a S.
My only complain is the dry clean only/
Absolutely love this dress! I am 5'3, and I bought a size small. It is way too long even in high wedges, but I have that problem with all floor length dresses. The color is more green than in the pictures. Overall, it is beautiful!

Stunning. Simple. Sophisticated.
If you are looking for a stunning, unique and comfortable dress. This has blown all the other dresses out of the park that I have ordered for a winter wedding. Fits perfectly at the was it line and comes with an optional fabric belt, that dresses it up a bit more. The beaded detail is very well done, and looks promising to last. The dress was a bit longer ( I am 5'6) if you are wearing heels you should be fine. However I like to wear flats for evening events, so give yourself enough time to have

This dress IS a work of art. More beautiful in person than in the photo. It has a slight sheen that seems to intensify the colors. It fits true to size, is easy to wear (has a sown in lining). I see it as a classic that would never go out of style. Because it is so beautiful, I think it calls for far dressier shoes than clogs. Worth the money!

Unique Sweater Dress
This dress fits like a glove and it very flattering. I plan to pair it with some opaque tights and brown leather boots for the fall.

Nice Dress, But NOt For Me
Loved the look of this online, but returned it. Did not like the disjointed area of the side seams. Made the dress look too busy, and for the price, this could have been matched better.
Love this unique and cozy dress. Very comfortable and surprisingly flattering. I just need the booties now!

Great Dress For Full Figure
Great Dress For A Full Figure.
Forget about the horizontal stripes. You can wear this with great style and get away with wearing those dreaded stripes. The possibilities have been great because I wear this dress with sweater vests, athletic vests, sweaters, jackets and wool scarves. I have worn this dress with cowboy boots, dress boots and pumps and it looks great with all options. The material is thick enough that panty lines don't show. Women of different ages stop me and tell me they want this style.

Great style and shape
I am a long time anthropologie shopper. However, I never write reviews. I thought this was worth reviewing for 2 reasons. First of all, it's a great dress. I love sweater dresses since I'm often cold in the winter months, but I can't wear wool, cashmere, etc. This one is cotton, and therefore extremely comfortable. I don't usually like stripes, but this style is very flattering.
The second reason for the review is I thought it was worth mentioning the length is way off!
I'm 5'2", and it is a
... read more true midi dress on me-hitting me about mid calf. I have no idea how they got it to look like that on the model. The sleeves are 3/4 length on me. I was debating whether to order it, since I'm petite and figured it would be way too long, but I'm glad I tried it.
I usually wear a 0 or 2P, and and XSP or SP. I ordered the XS. It fits a little big in the waist (25" waist), but overall, it fits very well, and is very flattering.It's definitely worth a try if you're debating and are on the shorter side height wise.
I love this dress. The material fits and flows perfectly and the color is more beautiful than you can imagine from looking at the pictures on the model. There are gold thread accents throughout the material, giving it just a little shine, but not overdone so that it's too glittery for those who prefer less sparkle. I found this in a store as a return and tried it on and instantly fell in love. Each dress is a little different - mine has more color around the neckline than the model's, which

This dress is beautiful in all respects: fit, style, material, print, and colors. It is incredible flattering in and makes me feel like a princess. I love the neckline and bust that gives it the right amount of elegance, and the flowing lengthy is just right - not too long or too short. I am usually a 0 or 2 and went with the 0 for the best fit. I look forward to wearing this around town, to special events, and on vacation. This dress will be a treasure for years to come.

I love this dress! This looks great by its self, and for the cooler months I have a beautiful blazer and sweater that goes well. It has so many colors to play off....Fits perfect, just a little big in the arm holes.
I was looking for some good dresses for fall. I'm always happy to find dresses with sleeves. This is a great option for comfort without losing dressiness.

A New Favorite!
This dress is as cute as I hoped it would be. I love the pockets and length and flattering cut. It looks great with boots and is perfect for fall. Only con is that it is dry clean only. It seems like the fabric would do just fine with hand washing, and I will probably go for it. I just don't have the patience or organization for dry cleaning.
