Very happy with this purchase! I ordered the turquoise color, which is a gorgeous Tiffany blue, more vibrant than the color on my screen. The fabric has sort of a retro texture and feels substantial without being overly heavy. From the product photos, I was worried about the horizontal seams in the design, but they're unobtrusive. I love the classic A-line shape with the modern touches — the V of the straps in the back and the cut in the front, which will really show off toned arms and
... read more shoulders. I can relate to the previous reviewer's concern about armpit flab, though; I'll have to remember to maintain good posture while wearing this! Also will probably need a strapless, backless bra so it won't show, or maybe have cups sewn in. I am 5'3" and 115 lbs with a small bust, and I ordered the size 2, which fit almost perfectly; I have a shorter torso so will get the straps shortened a little to match my proportions. The unaltered length hits about an inch above the knees for me. A great, versatile, three-season dress that I can't wait to wear.
Let me start off by saying, this color is my absolute favorite. My kitchen ceiling is painted this color, my ceiling fixtures are this color, my house is dispersed with bits of teal all throughout. My closet, is of no exception...and when I saw this dress. Bingo. Had to order it even at full-price. Yes, I did. When I saw it in the mailbox, I squealed with delight (since I previous was told it was on backorder until next month), and ripped open the package. The material is structured and thick,

I ran inside and tried it on. A bit of air was let out of my balloon... but only a TINY bit. The issue had all to do with my body type, so other ladies may be in luck. It fit perfectly throughout the hips and waist but up near the bust/arm pit area it was a tiny bit loose. In my eyes, it highlighted the dreaded armpit skin (not an attractive quality on ANYONE--except you yoga teachers!). Also, I felt there was a touch of side boob showing which makes me want to keep pulling it up, so no one gets a fancy view.
I consulted my friend... and her husband. They both agreed it looked great and I was seeing things that weren't there. I can live with that. I will keep the dress and take it to my tailor to see if it can be taken in a bit for my comfort level. Besides the extra skin showing up top, the fit was comfortable and flattering. The back looks just like on the model, a V-back which made it slightly unique but classic. Overall, the dress is a solid A.
Background: I always tend to veer toward the A-line style dress since I feel it flatters my pear shape body the best. At 5'7" 120 lbs, 34d, I ordered the size 4 and this was the size for me.

Wear Anywhere Dress
I love the 4.collective brand and have noticed that all of their dresses run slightly small (just need to order one size up). They make great quality pieces and this one is no exception. The color is vibrant and makes a somewhat simple dress a perfect summer statement that can be worn anywhere day or night. I feel that it is worth the price and highly recommend!
Loveeee this dress! The material is so so soft and comfortable. I love the colors (I purchased the cream) as they allow for this dress to cross multiple seasons. Fit-wise, this dress fit me exactly as the model. It did not make me look boxy at all, as I can see why that may be a worry for some. I have larger hips/thighs, so sometimes I have to size up once to get a good fit in the bottom, but this was not a problem with this dress. I have a feeling this one will fly off the rack, so pick it up now!

I am over 5'6" and 130 lbs (give or take). I am a 6-8 regular, as opposed to a 4-6. I wanted the dress to fit like the model in the white dress (she is 5'10"), not the more fitted look on the other model, so I ordered the petite M. The length hits just like it does on the model and the fit is perfect! The quality and comfort of this garment is well worth the money.
I wasn't quite sure on this one - but a 3/4 sleeves and V necks tunic dress is SO MY THING. I am in this right now. and let me tell you it feels great. I LOVE it. I have some Free People jaquard pattern leggings that this is going to look so awesome with... and that's just the start. LOVE.
One little weeny thing - just in case the designer/manufacturer looks in - if the pocket was caught into the side seam it would be even more perfect.
Now I'm looking at the other colours...

Super comfy and cute!
I bought this in black and love it. It is so soft and has a lot of stretch to it It has pockets to put my hands in which is a plus! I plan on wearing this with just sandals for now and black tights and taupe or black booties come fall, and I will add a scarf to it too maybe! So many ways to wear it, dress it up or down. I also bought 16 other items this week so I will pick up the taupe and teal one later, that's how comfy it is! For reference I am 5'4" and 120 and I bought a MED. I could have

Wonderful and versatile dress
I got the brownish tone, tried it on and loved it. It is very comfortable as the fabric is very smooth. It isn't clingy, as I had feared. I paired it with leggings and some flats and a clunky statement necklace and it is adorable as is. Great dress for fall into winter. Very flattering.
I absolutely love this dress. I ordered it to wear to a wedding this summer, and actually think I will end up wearing it after my own wedding to change into out of my wedding gown! I love the design, and the colors are very vibrant in person. The design is in the details, which you cannot see from the photo but the neckline details are my favorite! It was stunning from the moment I saw it in the package! The designer however is not Holding Horses as listed and it is Maeve, if that makes a

I love the details in this dress the material is heavy and a nice quality. The beading is beautiful although after the second time I wore the dress one of them came loose. The hidden pockets are adorable. It does run very large I'm 5'6"127lbs and swimming in a size 2. I'm going to see if I can exchange for maybe a zero.

Embroidered Cinta Tunic
I wasn't sure when I ordered this dress, but I love it. I am usually an Anthro 8/Medium but occasionally I will size down. This is the case with this dress. I went with a 6. The material is thick and the dress is well made. I can definitely see myself wearing this in the fall with tights and boots.
Love,love,love this dress! So comfortable and easy to wear. Wore it to a wedding and received many compliments It can even be worn with flats for a more casual look. I would put the dress on before applying makeup as it is a bit tricky to get on.

This dress is just as versatile as I hoped it would be. The dark navy almost appears black and can be easily dressed up, and the jersey material is so comfortable and could be paired with flats for a more casual look. Very flattering on a slim figure.

Late Summer dress
I am with the majority that adore this dress. I didn't have any idea how it would work on my hourglass figure - but it is lovely. So comfy and flattering. Easy to wear and perfect for the warmer weather. I only wish I'd bought it last month to get a bit more use out of it this year.
I own four of these dresses. I purchased the first one five years ago and it still looks as good as new. Don't let the "mummy" look fool you, it is very figure flattering, it hugs the curves and camouflages the tummy. I wear both size regular small and petite small (I'm 34B, 26 waist, 36 hips). The regular Small hem falls right below my knees and the petite small hem falls right above my knees. I own these dresses in sleeveless, with short sleeves, in gray, red, and black and white.

It's time tested and a great buy!

Amazing, professional dress!
I LOVED this dress. It's so flattering and you can dress it up to be perfect for work or a night out, or dress it down for a day of shopping or whatever. It's comfy and an easy one piece outfit. While flattering in a way that can hide many bumps and a little tummy, I was crushed to have to return it. I just have way too much tummy to work well with this dress. The profile view wasn't good. BUT I can't fault the dress for that!

All of these dresses by bailey44 are amazing - they're super fitted, but have a double layer of fabric that is SO smoothing and hides every flaw! This is a great staple dress - I will say that the length is kind of awkward if you're petite - I've never tried a petite size, so that might be better - I've had a few of these dresses and have just always gotten them hemmed b/c i have a bit of a longer torso. Definitely dry clean - they won't be ruined in the wash in a pinch but definitely pill if

Very pretty dress. It runs big, but it's supposed to fit that way. I'm not fully certain that I'm going to keep it. Still undecided on this one...

Nice, but Paler in Person
I bought the orange thinking it would be an awesome transitional piece to have for wearing black tights and boots as it gets cooler, but when it arrived in the mail the orange is much paler than it seems in the image, and what appears to be black is definitely gray. I tried it on with black tights and the contrast was just too intense and looked funny (looked like I was trying to force a summer dress into winter). I love all the versions of this dress from past seasons, but sadly I'll pass on

I am 5' and 110 lbs and Petite Small is way too large. The dress is cut like a shift, not fit and flare as in the product description. I need something that defines my waist, but the shift style can work for others. I am still considering an exchange for a smaller size but just not thrilled about the fit. The embroidery is unique and intricate which I love.

I really love this dress but it's a tad tight in the chest. I really would like to get a petite large but it's sold out. So I may have to return this.
This is such a beautiful dress! I am 5'6 with a pear shaped body (waist 29, hips 40, bust 33) and the Medium fit PERFECT! The good news is since it is a wrap dress I could probably have even gotten away with the small or the large because you can tie it to fit your waist. The length for me is perfect (again I'm 5'6) and I think I will only need a small heel could maybe even get away with flats. The fabric is beautiful and the quality is well worth the money spent!

lovely dress, not a keeper
I ordered this as an option for my (obviously non-traditional) wedding.The design is very simple and flattering though a bit big on top -- I wear a 32 DD bra and the xtra small was big on top. The print is nice, though the wrap top and silk gives it a bit of a kimono feel, which you may or may not like. The silk isn't of the highest quality, but at least it's not polyester like so many Anthro dresses seem to be these days! It's very long and dramatic. I decided to return it and wear a different

Simple yet stunning
This is such a lovely dress, the fabric in person is stunning perfect fall transition dress. I wore this to a wedding and it was stylish yet very comfortable. I am really busty (34ddd) so I had to wear a black top for modesty underneath plus the snap kept popping which wasnt a big deal beacuse I had a camisole on. There is enough fabric to wrap around, however it is a wrap so there is a chance it witll gape open at times. I did put a small tack stitch on the underneath lining to keep it from

I wore this dress to my rehearsal dinner and absolutely loved it. I paired it with long tassel earring and cowboy boots. It's timeless but unique and fits like a dream (runs slightly small so going one size up was ideal). I wish I could buy it in more colors! It was prefect for such a special occasion (it was my now-husband's favorite outfit of the whole weekend!) Great for something special - but classic enough to wear again and again. One of my best purchases in a long time!

I originally went to Anthropologie to try on a different dress, but this one caught my eye and I'm so glad I tried it. It's beautiful, sexy, flirty, and fun while also being cool and not too young looking. It's pretty expensive, but I know I will get a lot of use out of this one, and I was lucky enough to get it on sale. I am 5'10" 34D and a size 6 was perfect. The details of the lace neckline and flattering (non-Mom-like) peplum really sealed it for me.
