This dress came in the mail yesterday and I immediately put it on. I was surprised (even though the color selection said blue) to find that it was a true mint/aqua color, as on my phone and computer monitor it showed up white. I actually prefer it this way because it looks less like a nightie and more like a dress. It is perfect for Spring + Summer weddings and an Easter dress. It is gorgeously constructed and a must-have for the rifle paper co fanatic.
When I pulled it out, I was surprised at how large it looked. I am 28 weeks pregnant and still fit into a small, despite my large "bump." :) I would size down unless you prefer it nice & flowy. The only downfall is the sheer yolk, as it makes it sort of difficult to disguise a bra.

Such a pretty dress! perfect for Spring
I am 5' tall and the petite XS fit perfectly. I wore it for Easter and received many compliments from both men and women. The print is gorgeous. The background is a very light blue and I paired it with a chunky turquoise and sparkle necklace. It is pricey but the quality makes it worth it. It is lined, but the top is sheer. I wore a camisole tank underneath. My husband said the dress was very "me" and is now one of his favorites. I hope to see more of this in different colors.

Was worried this dress would be too short since other swing dresses I have ordered tend to be so short I can't wear them without leggings underneath. This dress is the perfect length and the back is slightly longer than the front providing more coverage. It is airy and light even though it is lined. Colors are so pretty. Perfect dress for a date night out to dinner this spring or summer. Can't wait to wear it on vacation next month! Extremely happy with this purchase. For reference I usually am a xs or small in anthro. Generally am a 4, sometimes a 2. I went with a small and it fits as I want. Could of possibly sized down but was worried about length.
Tried this on today and had to have it. Just adorable, lovely fit. I am usually a size 2 or XS at Anthropologie and the XS petite fit nicely. I am 5' 4" and so on the outside edge of what's considered petite and didn't find this too short. It comes to a couple of inches above the knee. For reference I am 32C bust and 27" waist about 125 lbs. there were only three of these dresses left on the rack in the store in varying sizes...grab it while you can. I think it will make a darling Easter dress but I could easily transition it to work with a cardigan and low heel, so very versatile as well. Many people gripe about the poly fabric so common these days but I had no issues with it at all and it's fully lined and beautifully made overall.

Very comfortable and flattering
I tried this dress on at the store, it only comes in a petite size. The small petite fit, but was tight in the chest area. I wanted to try on the medium but they were all out of that size. I would of gotten the small, but I just wanted to see if the medium had a tad bit more room. I am 5'2 size "C" on top. The length hit me a little past my mid thigh. Overall I fell hard for this dress. It is very comfortable, feminine, a little flirty, and not too much fabric on the skirt part that makes you look hippy. It is a pricey dress, but would be so great for Easter thru summer.

This dress is amazing! I ordered it online when Anthropologie was having their dress sale and I am so happy that I did. I am 5' 1", 105 llbs and the PXS fits me perfectly. It is a great length. I am super excited to wear it on Easter this year!
LOVE this dress. Lining is 100% cotton. It is from India so it does have an "imported" smell about it. Do NOT let this comment keep you from purchasing this beautiful well made garment. It is loose and flowy. Perfect from summer.
I am short, 5'1", on the heavy side. My chest measures about 42. This dress was big on me will exchange for med.

The combination of beading and sections of embroidered embellishment enhance the fit of this dress.
The color is so pretty! The shade of blue is little brighter than most chambray baby blue colors. I checked the 'runs large' category but 'relaxed fit' would be a better description. This fit of this dress is easy and comfortable; it is not supposed to be a form fitting club dress! I wish the length was a couple of inches longer, but if I were younger, I would not want it longer. I am concerned about the sleeve length because it gets so hot in Atlanta, but for Spring it is perfect. The sleeves can be rolled up because the arms are blowsy enough. The feather embroidery and smocked neckline are beautiful details that make this dress very feminine. The deep pockets are great! They are big enough for a billfold or iPhone! Anthropologie does a great job of offering plenty of dresses with pockets. The ability to throw on a beautiful dress and run errands without carrying a purse is freedom! I'm tired of guarding my purse at the grocery store and farmer's market; I had my purse stolen from my buggy this year. So thanks, Anthropologie for offering beautiful dresses that suit my lifestyle!

Beautiful but buttons fell off
I tried it on at home after buying it in the store (I wasn't able to try on there) and immediately one of the buttons fell off. Then I noticed the other ones were loose as well. The shoulders didn't fit properly. They were too big. This will have to go back. Too bad!
This dress can be dressed up or worn casually. which I love. The fabric is so soft and drapey, I imagine it would flatter many body types. I found in store and tried on the S & XS. I'm typically a size Small, never XS. I went with the XS for a slightly more fitted look, but still over-sized & comfortable. The sleeves actually have tight elastic at the cuff (unlike the image) so you can push up the sleeve for a short-sleeved look. Wearing this with tights & boots until it finally warms up on the east coast!
