    Petites run very short-waisted
    I first fell in love with this dress in the catalog shot and tried on my usual size 2 in store, but it was clearly too big in the bust and long in the shoulders. This problem is typical for me as a petite--5'2", straight and athletic figure--so I ordered the 2P. Unfortunately, the petite size is tight in the waist (where I'm proportionally larger) and noticeably short-waisted. I actually am short-waisted myself, albeit with a long torso, but the petite dress's waistline hit above my high natural waist. Combined with the shorter length, it felt childish and babydoll-like. To get the right fit I'd have to purchase the size 2 and get it professionally altered, so I'll wait for sale. A few other notes about the dress itself: every dress has a slightly different pattern layout, and in most of them the dot centered on the v-neck is NOT centered (i.e. like the model shots but not like the perfect catalog shot). Also, there are pockets hidden in the front where the two different pattterns meet in the skirt, not on the side seam as I initially expected.

    I have a full hour glass figure and sometimes it's difficult to find something that will flatter that. This dress is PERFECT on me! It defines my waist and flares out nicely to accent my curvy hips. I know some reviews said it runs big, but I got my usual size 10 and it fit wonderfully. I love the way they mixed the patterns and how they placed them on the dress. It's not overwhelming at all, and I think the v-neck helps break it up a bit. Also, the length is spot on for me, I'm 5'5" and it hits about an inch above the knee. I plan on wearing it to a graduation with wedges, and then a little more casually to a bridal shower during the summer with sandals. I can't wait to wear this!

    Adorable dress
    I purchased this in store in a size 2. This is my usual dress size (5'4" 125lbs 34B). This hits at my knee and is not too tight on the bust/waist. The front is cut low enough to be flattering, but is still work appropriate. The fabric is a crisp cotton. This dress has a burgundy lining with black scallop threading trim and front pockets. This has the right amount of full skirt (not too big). I can see this easily working in warmer weather as the fabric is light weight. I wore it with a black cropped cardigan, black tights and boots today in the dead of winter, so I can see getting a lot of use out of this dress. Love how the pattern looks on the sides of the dress. Hope they make this dress in a lot of different patterns.

    Very cute and a little sexy.
    When I saw this dress I was so happy, finally a dress that is not too short! Plus a flared A-line. I tried on the x-large which was too big, the large (my normal size) fit perfect, even my 40DD bust with a little cleavage showing, classy sexy. The material is soft and stretchy, very comfortable with a little weight and texture to it. I love the "key-hole" back (which hides the bra) and of course the length which falls just above my knees. The navy blue hem is a nice touch as it enhances the fun springy flower pattern. My only wish would be pockets. I am looking forward to wearing this cute dress out to daytime fun and with a little jewelery, a heeled sandal and a shiny clutch out to dinner. A perfect dress for spring sun and summer nights. My husband will love it! My girlfriends too!

    I tried this on in the store today and fell in love. I am going to wait for a sale, but almost walked out with it. I am a solid petite in everything, but this in the XS regular fit me just fine (I'm 5'1", 115 lbs). I would probably order the petite, but could have gotten away with the regular size. It is stretchy material, but it won't stretch out to shapelessness because it is heavier material (but not warm…I'm in FL and would wear it in summer). I'm small chested, and the shape of the dress was flattering. Definitely a fun, party, nite out dress, not really for office wear. Really, it is beautiful.

    Lovely, fun dress
    This is a very fun, pretty dress, with vivid print and colors. It is prefect for spring and summer wear. The flared A-line skirt has great movement and is very flattering, and the key hole in the back is really pretty. The material is soft and stretchy, making it very comfortable; however, it does run very large. You'll need to go down at least one size. If you are busty, the neckline will look/fit low-cut.

    So Lovely
    I wasn't sure what to think of this dress online when I saw it? It was really pretty; but I didn't know what the material and fit would be like in person. I took a chance and ordered it before any reviews popped up, and I LOVE IT!! It's such a lovely dress. The colour is rich and would suit so many skin tones, and the fit is great. For reference I wear a 4 in tops and 6 in bottoms, and the 4 fit perfectly. (I'm 4'11 and 115lbs - hourglass; but athletic.) The one really interesting thing about this dress is the slip underneath. There is this blueish slip underneath, that I actually thought could be inter-changeable because it had little clips to remove the straps; but it turns out the slips is actually stitched in. Mayhaps in the future it would be neat to have a removable slip to offer different looks and colour palates underneath. My one only tiny complaint, is the zipper worries me a little. Because it's more fitted up top, you really have to give it a good tug to do it up (had I sized up, it would have been too big up top) but the zipper is so little, I was afraid I was going to wreck it at first. After putting it on a few times though it seemed to get easier. I wouldn't let it deter you from buying this dress. It's such a happy piece to have in your closet. Really happy I bought this dress.

    I usually wear a size 6 or 8 so I ordered both and am keepiing the 8 I would say it runs slightly small so if you are between sizes order up. The yellow is gorgeous, and unlike another reviewer, I LOVE the blue slip undernearth. It is made of a crisper fabric but is so pretty peeking out of the yellow lace. This is a flattering dress. The zipper is a bit difficult in one spot on both dresses I ordered but it does finally zip up. The size 8 hits me just at the top of my knees and I'm 5' 5" and a 34 D, 130 lbs.

    Beautifully detailed
    I received the Latticelace dress today and I am thrilled! I am always a size 2, therefore, it fits true to size, and the detail on the dress is amazing. The blue lining provides an extra burst of color, which makes the dress distinct. I recommend this dress highly and will be wearing it to my daughters bridal shower.

    i fell in love with this dress in the store but unfortunately i needed to go a size up which they didn't have in stock so i immediately went online and placed an order from the fitting room. i have to say, when i saw it online i thought to myself how i would never have made the decision to purchase by looking at the photos. but in-person, this dress is a stunner and so figure-flattering, especially for curvy girls. i have hips and the structure of the peplum bottom and the way that it hugs and flares out looks so beautiful and feminine. i bought it in black and the material is of excellent quality. it fits true to size but there's a lot of give in it because of the stretchy material. i highly recommend. so happy i found it and can't wait to wear it!

    beautiful, versatile dress
    I saw this dress on the Anthro website and loved it, but wanted to try it on in-store for fit. The black color has a gorgeous texture to it and the fabric is slightly stretchy and flatters my curves. I may even end up buying it in navy/purple. For reference, I'm usually a size 6 in Anthro dresses and this one fit true to size. The hem hits slightly shorter on me than it does on the model; I'm 5'9 but have a larger chest (34D).

    I didn't expect to love this....
    I ordered a bunch of dresses online during Anthro's recent sale and considered this one of the unlikely contenders. Well, in the end, this won out. The flounce works much better than I expected, and the color is really lovely. Like other HD in Paris dresses that I've tried, it is made with a sweatshirt like material. So it is really comfortable, but it does not have as much inherent structure as you might expect for this style of dress. So I think that probably makes it even more important that it fit well. For me, it hit all the right spots, though it was more fitted than shown on the model. I am 5'5 128 hourglass and I got a S.

    Weird Sizing
    I originally saw this dress as the petite style and was thrilled to see this one released on the website. I ordered it immediately and ordered a slightly larger size, which turned out to be the right decision. This dress sat in my closet for about a week before I finally tried it on and was hoping to wear it this weekend but I have realized I need to get it altered. I was expecting the larger size to fit my bust and be slightly loose at the waist but it was the opposite. My upper half was swimming in the fabric and it ended up fitting perfectly at my waist. The zipper kind of sucks on this dress so I might get it replaced when I take my dress in to get it fixed. There appears to be too much fabric at the waist, which caused the zipper to get stuck -- even when the dress is off. This is such a beautiful dress and I can't wait to wear it once it fits properly.

    So cute, so small
    Was so enamored of this dress when I first spotted it online...I didn't want to miss out so I hurriedly ordered it in my usual Anthropologie sizes of 0 and 2 just to be sure at least one of them fit. Received them and both were wayyy too small. Like I couldn't even zip up the size two small. In fact the waistband was up around my lower ribcage and had i been able to zip it up the bodice would have been right in my armpits, and the skirt indecently short. Since it seemed to be running at least two sizes small I tried again with a size 6. Which was HUGE. I mean it looked more like a size 8 or perhaps a 10. I didn't even bother trying it on. Lets hope the 4 works. Otherwise it's a gorgeous dress and very well made, it's just that the sizing is really wonky on this one.
