Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Erks Bailey column dress
The picture is a little misleading as the dress looks black, though as the color description says, it is brown. The main stripes are a dark brown,but some of the stripes are green, white, and a very light pink. The colors of the dress IMO look even better in person than they do online. The dress fits like the typical bailey column dress though it is shorter ( most of their dresses have fallen at or below my knee) but this falls just above the knee, def not to short on my 5'4 frame. I already have a curvy figure so I don't need to accentuate it as much as this dress does, I therefore sized up to a medium instead of my normal small in most other dresses. I def recommend this dress, this is my favorite color combo for a bailey dress that I've tried so far, the brown compliments my fair skin (and the sale price didn't hurt)

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby niighunto Spanx-tight and one full size too small
Nice Bailey 44 standard, but tighter than usual. I am 5'5", size XS(0-2) in most tops and dresses, but consistently an S in Bailey 44. However, in this style, I was shrink-wrapped in an S, felt short of breath, looked heavier and kind of cheap.
Colors are nice, neutral, muted, with some green khaki tones, but definitely not B&W. There is something about the feel of the fabric that bothers me - guess it feels more "man-made" than I like.
For my height, the length was fine, above-knee. I actually prefer this shorter version to the usual midi standard of this particular Bailey's design. For this reason alone, I may go thru the return/exchange hassle and get a Medium.
PS - I feel as if I am writing this review in invisible ink. Anthro, please have your web dev team adjust this feature.
