Rated 2 out of 5
┬áby asta17 I've been waiting for this dress to arrive at my local store, and I finally saw it today. What a huge letdown. The quality is awful - the black jersey is as thin as it could possibly be and has no structure to it whatsoever. The black colorblock on the front is longer than the lace portion next to it. The lace is fine, very pretty color, standard quality, but the two fabrics just don't go together. I also found it to fit very large - the XS was huge everywhere but length (I'm 5'1, 32A, 105 lbs). The twist on the front hit me too low and it is not secured well - the seams must have popped from the person trying it before me, so it just sagged. Overall, it ended up looking very sloppy, unflattering, and cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Mischa Stunning, simple dress
I wanted to try this on the minute I saw it online. Tried it on at my local Anthro store in the XS and it fits TTS. I am 5'3" and 103 pounds and the hem hits me right where it does on the model, a good 2 inches above the knees. It is extremely flattering and exceptionally well made. The V in the front does not show any cleavage so nothing needs to be added under the dress for coverage. The black is a true cotton knit, but it's deep black so it does not downplay the overall dressiness of the dress, but adds to it and makes it original and fun. Wearing this to a wedding next weekend!

Rated 1 out of 5┬áby houston30s looked cheap on me, maybe for a much younger girl?
In real life the dress just looks cheap. I tried this dress because the color combinations and the v-neck style should be flattering. The lace looks cheap and the black fabric feels like it will pill on the first wearing, it's just a no-go. The black material that overlays part of the skirt was cut incorrectly and hung down about an inch lower in the front than everything else so the hem didn't match up. It was a small enough difference that it did not look intentional, but big enough that it looked sloppy. Maybe a younger woman could pull this off and make it look fun and flirty. It's not for me.
