    Perfection…and, yes, size down.
    This dress fit me like a glove. I'm not alone, either - check out the rave reviews posted by women of all ages, shapes and sizes! I am 5'4", 125 pounds, 34D, very short-waisted and athletic but curvy. I am normally a size 6, but finally settled on the size 4 regular after trying the 6P. It hits about 2-3 inches below my knees, which is both flattering and a pleasant alternative to my other dresses, which are either mini or full-length. The smaller size just feels better and I think the closer fit helps the lace detail pop a bit more. The nude colored slip/lining also alleviated any modesty issues I had with respect to the "peekaboo" detailing throughout the bodice. It might look like you're showing a lot of skin, but it certainly doesn't feel like it once you're wearing it. It's classy and it's sexy, which is usually more than you can ask of a dress at this price point. Bonus: my flesh-colored bra is virtually undetectable, which is key given my cup size and the fact that I have 2 young kids.

    This dress is absolutely stunning! I am 5'4 120 lbs and fit perfectly into a size 0. This dress is very well made and has such a classic look to it. The sizing was a bit off (my measurements showed I should wear a 4) so be careful when choosing your size. I recommend ordering from the store to avoid paying for shipping and having the item not fit. Worth any hassles you may encounter and will wear so often. I told my boyfriend I would wear it grocery shopping because I just want to wear it all the time!

    I'm 5'4" 120 lbs and an a cup. I bought this dress in a size 2P. The fit is perfect. Comes to my knee as shown on the model. The fabric is so beautiful in person. Very classy yet sexy at the same time! Just what I was looking for!

    Amazing dress
    A more classic update to the peasant dress! This dress is PERFECT.A great flirty length but with buttons like a shirt dress, this dress easily goes from work to party in a snap. I bought this dress thinking there was no way it would fit. I squealed when it did. The elastic waist is key. It does not provide a TON of give - but just the right amount. Anthro buyers/designers get their customers. This dress might be my favorite purchase.

    Super cute dress!
    Love this item! Can be worn casually in daytime or can dress up for a nice evening out. Fits true to size, ordered a size Small and it falls just above my knee and is not too tight but not too big, very comfy.

    Runs a bit large
    I'm typically a size M in dresses (5'7", usually a size 6, currently a size 8), but this dress fits more like a L - especially around the waist. It hits a couple of inches above my knee, though I'd prefer it to be a bit longer. Because size S is sold out, I'll probably just take it to the tailor - it's very pretty.
