Rated 2 out of 5┬áby Salmonlady Almost right
I am 5'8" with 32c, 27, 36 measurements. I tried this dress in a 4. I tend to vary between a 2 and 4 at Anthro. As the other reviewers stated, this dress pulled at the waist. I think the issue is that the skirt portion is very heavy and tugs some on the buttons. It didn't hit me in the right spot, so I felt like I looked wider than I am. The skirt was more fabric than I expected also. The length was great, hitting right above my knee, and the armholes didn't gape. But the fit at the waist was off, and made the whole outfit look a bit sloppy. The fabric is poly, but has a nice silky feel to it. The ribbons are nicely sewn on and add a fun texture to it IRL that doesn't translate well in the on-line pics. Overall though, fit is everything, so back to the rack for this one for me.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby Snowgirl21 Cute but bad fit!
Love the dress, but I would never buy it because it has zero stretch in the waist! It is a cute style but pulled at the waist! Sizing up didn't help, it just made the arm holes too big!

I found this on sale in store and tried it on, not expecting much, but my usual size 4 fit beautifully - the length is great and falls a couple inches past my fingertips so it's appropriate for most occasions, the skirt is lined and has a nice weight to it (so it doesn't feel like it's going to flip up with every little gust of wind) and the colors are nice and vibrant. However I will agree with other reviewers that the waist does gap a little and it would be more convenient/comfortable if it had some stretch to it, but the gaping is easily fixed with a belt. So overall, I would recommend trying it on in store just to make sure its comfortable.
I see this working well all-year, just on it's own with sandals in summer and dressed up with a cardigan, tights and boots in fall/winter (and it will provide a nice pop of color in an otherwise endlessly dreary season). I loved it so much I picked up both colors (a deal at the sale price)!
