    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.

    Firstly, for a $258 dollar dress I wish Anthro BOXED this dress for shipping, instead of wrapping it in tissue & sending it in a bag. With that said, this is a lovely dress, just not right for my shape and height. The lace detail is very attractive, and with the market overloaded with lace for spring right now, this dress's lace is quite different and very tasteful. The dress gives off a very classy and sexy look yet it is amazingly comfortable and fits your shape like a glove. But, the dress shipped to me appeared as if it was worn previously; a couple of the very tiny eye hooks were ripped out of their stitchings and the waist appeared stretched. I am very short torso'd so the lace detail in the chest area just didn't work, and I found the black too black. Unfortunately this is going back, but I would definitely consider another dress by this designer. Even tho it was tight fitting, it was incredibly comfortable--even sitting down! So bummed I have to continue looking for a dress for my nephew's wedding. I had hoped this was it.

    love
    i put on this dress and fell in love. i really wanted it in white, but i needed it for a wedding (guest not bride) and that would be inappropriate. i'm so happy with the navy. i'm in between a size 8 and a 10, and i bought the 10 and it's a tiny bit too big. i'm also ordering the 8 and i'm going to send back whichever one i decide not to wear the night of the wedding. i think this is my favorite dress i've ever owned.

    Just Press the 'Submit Order' Button
    Ok, so obviously it's hard not to notice the monthly car-payment-like price of this dress, however, that being said... It. Is. Worth. Every. Penny. At least when that repo-man comes, you will look GOOD. Seriously. I'm 30 years old, 5'6", 150 pounds and I purchased the size 8. Never before in my 30 years on this Earth have I owned an article of clothing that fit this well. It's absolutely perfect! The dress itself is clearly stunning. Perfect black dress. The buttons are darling and let you choose your level or riske. The skirt is the perfect sexy, modern length. I feel like I'm over-using the word 'perfect' here, but no other word in the English language would apply quite as well. If you're thinking about purchasing this dress, do it. Don't think about it any longer. It's inconceivable that you could possibly, in any way, regret that decision. Start babysitting. Own that lemonade stand. Whatever you do... Buy this dress. It's... Perfect.

    True to size
    I love this dress! Wore it to an Awards Banquet - lots of compliments. I listened to other reviewers and sized down...wish I hadn't. Order your regular size. I don't like form fitting clothing so I wish I would've stuck to my normal size. I'm 5'6, 120, 36 C. This dress is a little on the heavy side and my only complaint is that it took a bit to get on...

    Really Beautiful
    Well, after a few months of pondering whether to buy this dress I finally did. I read a lot of the reviews first and judging by what was said about this LBD I decided I had to order it. I love this dress and that's only after trying it on to check the fit. I ordered the 6 as I'm generally a US6/UK10 in most brands. I noticed some people say it runs a little big but I didn't find this to be the case (unless you are very narrow shouldered and small breasted it should be fine). The material is gorgeous but the points made about the potential for the material to snag are correct so I'd say to avoid wearing rings or bracelets that the dress sleeves could get caught on until after you've stepped in to this sexy little number. I'll certainly be watching where I sit when I'm wearing it for the same reasons. There's a decent weight to this dress so for the sake of not over stretching the shoulders I intend to store it off the hanger. However, overall I have to say that this is a great quality dress. Very well lined and super comfortable. Honestly I'm wondering why it's not double the price. If you want something a little more chic, classy and unusual then this is the dress for you. I can't wait to wear it with nice heels and minimal accessories (it really doesn't need much else because it's so pretty).

    Conversation Topic
    The work on this dress is out of this world. It was a conversation topic at dinner! One of the reason I always choose this cut is because I have a very short torso. The dress comes with a black dress. I choose to not wear it. I am in between two sizes 6-8. I have an “Athletic” shape. Tops I am an 8 and bottoms 6, so I bought both sizes, the 8 was loose and the 6 needed me to hold perfect posture. So be prepare to hold your head high! You’ll look prettier. The dress length of course fit me longer than the model – but nothing that a pair of nude high heel doesn't fix. The neckline will look just like in the picture... it didn't look flattering on me with the zipper all the way up. Which is just perfect paired up with tiny jewelry. What I didn't like (and you can’t see it very good in the picture) is that the above the shoulder there is a piece of fabric – same one from the back section – that in my opinion is too wide. The sleeves on me looked very puffy– I had to “shorten” those too. I am 5’5. 135, 34D, Short torso, Long legs, skinny shaped arms

    This dress is extremely unique and pretty
    I love this dress. The design, quality and fit are perfect! I'm normally a size S, for this case I bought a 2P which fits me perfectly, just like it was tailored for me. I got a discount 25% when I bought this, but even without the discount, this dress worth every single penny. Grab it before it gone !

    Don't let this one get away
    I had no intention of buying this dress at full price - but I shouldn't have tried it on. It fits really well! I like the unique styling on the top - how it covers your shoulders rather than just being a "tank-styled" top. The style of the top was a little different on all size S in my store - the center piece of the bodice was mainly navy with a small green spot or spots. It didn't bother me too much though. At 5'5", the regular length will require that I wear heels, which is unfortunate, but I think the P would be too short if it's "perfect" for one of the other reviewers, who is 5'3". The empire waist of this dress hides a few sins, without being frumpy and without looking like it's doing any hiding. There is a nice flow to the skirt. The lining only comes to my knees - which was a little distracting but not enough to dissuade me from purchasing the dress. The colors are very vibrant - and I think this dress looks way better in person than it does on the model (and how many times can you say that??). The fact that the dress is washable was a must in my book - hopefully it holds up in the gentle cycle.

    Verda Maxi Dress
    I absolutely love this dress! I am just under 5'3" and usually wear a size 2 or 4 and the small petite fits just fine. I probably could have gone to an XS because the fabric is stretchy, but I am keeping the small. The length hits me just at the bottom of my ankle so pretty much as shown on the model. I really like the design of the top of the dress and love the fact that I can wear a regular bra with it instead of having to wear a strapless. I am so happy with all of my Maeve dresses, but this one is my favorite!

    Long enough for tall girls
    This dress is great. The fabric is really soft and comfortable. The colors are vibrant. There is a liner from the waistband to about the knee that lets the dress fall nicely, giving extra coverage for the hip and butt area. My favorite part is that it is a maxi dress long enough to reach the floor so i can wear flats or heels. It looks very cute with a jean jacket. I am 5'9" and the length is perfect for me. I got the medium, which is my regular size.

    Love this dress!
    I was searching for a dress to wear to a wedding. I saw this dress on the rack and didn't think it would look good on me because of the thick material and pattern so I didn't bother trying it on. While I was trying on other dresses in the dressing room, I explained to the salesperson that none of the dresses I tried on were working out. She pulled some dresses and this dress was one of them. I was skeptical at first, but once I had it on I loved it. The cut is flattering and the thick material is a little more forgiving if you're trying to hide a few extra pounds. Additionally, the design of the dress helps cinch everything in. The hidden pockets are an added bonus. The design at the waist adds a whimsical touch. I do agree with other reviewers regarding the zipper. The zipper doesn't go far enough down if you're trying to step into the dress and have any hips. Other than the zipper issue, the dress is perfect. I'm so glad the salesperson pulled it for me because I would have never chosen it for myself. Dress was true to size. I'm 5'1 and 125 lbs with a small bust.

    LOVE this dress
    I love this dress. The design is adorable with chevron navy stripes and a multi-colored inset at the waist. It fits true to size. I have a smaller bust and waist, so this was a great style, fitted up top, but slightly flared below the waist. Those with a fuller bust may need to size up in this dress, as there isn't any stretch. The waist hit at my actual waist and the skirt fell just above my knee. (I'm 5"1, so no need for a petite.) The skirt was a bit poofy below the waist, but that was the only negative I could think of. The material is thick and substantial but not bulky. A very versatile and super cute dress.

    Adorable structured dress
    First thing to know is that this dress runs small. You will definitely need to size up and put it on over your head vs stepping into it. I bought this at the store and they told me everyone has said the same thing. However, once you get in the right size this is an adorable dress. It's very structured and a heavier (but not too heavy) material so it lays really nice/flat vs overly poofy. Another great Maeve dress in my opinion!

    Amazing Fit
    Bought this in a Petite XS runs on the small side. It is a bit difficult to get into, it should have a zipper down the back or side. However, once on it looks amazing! I received tons of compliments when I wore it out to a casual business dinner. I paired it with suede boots and was warm in it even up here in Canada. This dress can easily transition into spring with a pair of sandals and then back into fall with a leather bomber. Don't hesitate on this one does not look like much on a hanger but definitely wows.

    Cute retro dress
    I had run into anthro to do a return and this dress caught my eye. Purple stripey dress with pockets. Had a few minutes so grabbed it to try on. I am 5', 120 lbs, 34B. I usually wear a small, 4 or 4P. Since the neck is small, I tried to pull this over my head and felt stuck. I pulled it off to check for a zipper. Nope. No zipper. Even turned the dress inside out to make sure. It's very tight to get on and I had to shimmy it down over my chest. Once on it is snug in the torso but not uncomfortable. The belt gives a defined waistline. The length on me was about 2 inches below my knees which I would usually avoid since it makes me look even shorter except the bell shape of the skirt, V pattern and weight seem to lengthen the look of the leg. I had on tall boots and it completed the retro look. Then it was time to take it off. Another shimmy up and off it came. Dress was very flattering on, but getting in and out was a lot of work. Ended up not buying it. I don;t always like to work that had getting in and out of clothes.

    Compliments Galore
    Love this dress - yes the fabric is a bit stiffer than I expected but that is what made it hold its shape. I never got so many compliments on a dress in my life - well, maybe on my wedding dress but that was 17 years ago... It is super comfy, looks great, and hides just what you need to hide so that you look stunning.
