    Wear Anywhere Dress
    I love the 4.collective brand and have noticed that all of their dresses run slightly small (just need to order one size up). They make great quality pieces and this one is no exception. The color is vibrant and makes a somewhat simple dress a perfect summer statement that can be worn anywhere day or night. I feel that it is worth the price and highly recommend!

    Gorgeous color, quality material,overall beautiful
    Let me start off by saying, this color is my absolute favorite. My kitchen ceiling is painted this color, my ceiling fixtures are this color, my house is dispersed with bits of teal all throughout. My closet, is of no exception...and when I saw this dress. Bingo. Had to order it even at full-price. Yes, I did. When I saw it in the mailbox, I squealed with delight (since I previous was told it was on backorder until next month), and ripped open the package. The material is structured and thick, but in a good way. Again, about the color, oh mama! Gorgeous! I ran inside and tried it on. A bit of air was let out of my balloon... but only a TINY bit. The issue had all to do with my body type, so other ladies may be in luck. It fit perfectly throughout the hips and waist but up near the bust/arm pit area it was a tiny bit loose. In my eyes, it highlighted the dreaded armpit skin (not an attractive quality on ANYONE--except you yoga teachers!). Also, I felt there was a touch of side boob showing which makes me want to keep pulling it up, so no one gets a fancy view. I consulted my friend... and her husband. They both agreed it looked great and I was seeing things that weren't there. I can live with that. I will keep the dress and take it to my tailor to see if it can be taken in a bit for my comfort level. Besides the extra skin showing up top, the fit was comfortable and flattering. The back looks just like on the model, a V-back which made it slightly unique but classic. Overall, the dress is a solid A. Background: I always tend to veer toward the A-line style dress since I feel it flatters my pear shape body the best. At 5'7" 120 lbs, 34d, I ordered the size 4 and this was the size for me.

    Perfect all around
    This dress is amazing. It is the perfect length and the pattern is adorable. I received a handful of compliments the first time I wore it. The material is really light and ideal for those warm summer days. It does run a little big.

    Perfect all-purpose dress!
    I first saw this item in the store window and knew I was going to have to get it before I even went inside. It's so hard to tell online, but the pattern is actually an adorable and sleek mini-gingham (this print online looks odd, but in person, this dress is the best thing ever!!!). The fit is loose, so it allows more movement to the material. The fabric is fairly thin, so it breathes very easily, but it is still solid enough to not need a slip (plus the skirt is lined anyway). I tied this dress in the front, and actually think it looks a lot better that way, as it draws more emphasis to the waist and the fun asymmetrical cut in the front. It's professional enough for the office, and light enough for a day at the park. Everyone should have this dress! -p.s. - Purchased in petite, the v-neck hits high enough as to not be inappropriate, and stays in place nicely (often a concern for petites and v-neck styling)

    This dress is even better on than on the hanger. The fabric is lovely and so comfortable for hot days. When I first tried it...I said "this would be perfect if it had pockets"...and voila... IT DOES!!! (I tie it in front)

    Dress Up or Down
    I needed something for my son's college graduation which is outside in a football stadium. This is perfect. I dressed it up with some skin colored heels. Also looks just as cute when dressed down with sandals. I am 5'5" and this hits me right above the knee - not near as short as on the model. I am in my fifties and my 19 year old daughter had a fit over it. This dress is so versatile and the detailing on the bodice is fabulous. I ordered a M and L cuz I have broad shoulders - the L was enormous. I was swimming in it. The M was perfect. And my daughter ended up wearing it before I did with booties!

    So cute, but so big!!!
    This dress adorable in person!! There are a lot of intricate details that I missed on the online shots of this dress. The back overlay is a unique surprise! There are pockets. Also there is open stitch work around the arms as well as the waist! However, I think it's very hard to see skin, due to the fleshy color of the skirt... At least withy skin tone. The quality is definitely there. The rayon fabric of the dress seems to be a little thicker, which is nice. I am 5' 6" and 140lbs, and typically wear an 8. So I ordered a medium... I was swimming in it!! I easily could have sized down to a small with plenty of wiggle room. I found the length to hit about 2 inches above my knees, with the scoop cut on the sides a little shorter, maybe 3 to 4 inches there. I definitely don't want to loose any length, so I'm going to have the dress altered. I love it that much! I definitely recommend this dress, if you can get the right size.

    summer go-to
    This is going to be one of my new summer go-to dresses. It's easy to throw on and looks great with booties or sandals. The fabric on the skirt is a little thin, so I may have to wear a slip with it just to be safe. However, everything else about this dress is fabulous. As someone with a larger chest (34DD) one of my concerns is always tightness across the chest, however this fits TTS (I'm normally a 6-8 and ordered a Medium) and has plenty of room in the top. It's light, but well-made and the fabric is really soft--like many other Holding Horses items. I can't wait to wear this around!

    Perfect little summer dress!
    My dress arrived yesterday, and it's SO cute that I HAD to wear it today! I purchased a MP and it's the perfect length, the wraps create the right curves, and the look is perfectly put together. So light and great for summer.

    Perfect Summer Dress
    I love this dress so much that I bought it twice- In case I drop food on one of them. It's a beautiful fitting top with great length. I'm 5'7'' and it hits right at the knee. The wrapped front makes it very flattering for the chest. It looks just as it does on the model in the picture except I think the dark linen on the bottom has a slightly purple tone to it. I love the fabric and the quality of the construction.

    Fits very Well
    The material of this dress is very nice and very comfortable. The top of the dress is not grey like the picture shows...it is more of a Taupe which was disappointing. Also, the bottom is very shear. You can see everything so make sure you have a nude color of underwear.

    Size down
    I bought this dress on line in a size 6. I always size down in anthro dresses. 6 was way too big and like a previous reviewer it does weird pointy things in the bust. I returned for a size 4 and it mostly took care of that issue without being too small anywhere else. I really like the design and detail of this dress. It's also comfortable and can be worn belted or not.

    Love this dress
    I ordered this dress online and was very excited when I got it. It's flowy, soft (not see through), adorable back and great for any occasion. My only problem with this dress is that it looks a little funk around my bust. I'm only a 34A so the way this dress is cut, it makes my boobs look a little pointy and low. I posted a pic as well. I think I will try to take this dress in to get altered but overall I love it.

    An interesting LBD!
    I feel like most LBDs are so boring, but this one is full of details! The bottom four or so buttons don't open, so there's no pulling at the hips. There are also hook and eye closures between buttons so there's no "gappage" for busty girls. For sizing: I'm 5'9 36C - 29 - 40 and I'm usually between an 8/10. The 8 fit well in the hips, but was baggy in the waist. Since I don't mind form-fitting "pin-up" style dresses, I went with the 6, which fits like a glove! Love love love! Can't wait to buy all of Byron's dresses.

    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.

    Not working for my athletic backside
    I LOVE the look of this dress. LOVE the quality, the buttons, the hooks in b/w the buttons so you don't get that weird gap when you move around. HOWEVER...I am 5'3 115lbs with an athletic bum. I ordered a size 2P--this is definitely true to size-fitted, moveable, but not too tight. Except for 1 major problema: the fabric does not lay flat on my back..there is an awkward fabric gap bw my lower back and tush so I will have to check in with a tailor to see if darts will do or if I will need to send it back. I wear size 26 jeans-so we're not talking Beyonce or JLo here...but the gap is there and enough so that it is not at all flattering in the back.

    Gorgeous dress!!
    Initially when I first tried on the dress, the shape was hitting me in all the wrong places. I'm always a Small/Sz4 and the top was just too billowy and falling off my shoulders, and the tulip portion of the skirt was puffing out at my hips so they looked way bigger than they were. It was definitely unflattering, and as much as I wanted to make it work, I was about to put it back. But I went a size down, tried on the XS and tried cinching my waist by pulling in that drawstring really tight, and adjusting the material in the front so the bunching was tight and in the front, and the dress completely changed. The shape of the dress was completely different, as the material outlined my body a lot closer, and it was even better looking that how it looks on the model on the website photo. I immediately fell in the love with the dress. I would recommend trying on the dress again, and playing with that drawstring if it didn't work the first time around. Absolutely love this dress and so happy I made the purchase.

    In love...
    I, for one, am not usually a girl that wears, much less purchases a dress for myself, but for some reason, I pulled this dress off the rack, tried it in the light grey and was hooked. It's an absolutely gorgeous piece that flatters my figure perfectly. I have an ample chest and narrow hips, so the billowy bottom with the pockets actually adds to my figure balancing out my top half. The cut is elegant and simple, yet unique. It does wrinkle quickly, so one has to prioritize hanging it at all times. The fabric is so soft and I truly feel beautiful whilst wearing it. If it could even get better, I have received countless compliments on this dress, many of them asking me where they can get it themselves. While I can understand why some of the other reviewers were ultimately displeased with this product, don't let that stop you from trying it for yourself; it does work for some bodies!

    I disagree somewhat with the negative comments about this dress. I find the fit to be very flattering. The placement of the pockets is not an issue at all. (I am 5' 4 ".) The neck does tend to gape, but I plan to pin it.

    Cute design. Runs large!
    The flounce around the body is dramatic and fun. I like the thick yet comfortable denim material, and the details look well-made. Only big problem is the sizing: It's huge. I usually wear 8 at Anthro (and 6 for J.Crew), but I can almost swim in size 8 of this piece...finally fitted into a size 4 -- perfect, with tad extra room around the chest, which is good since the material is solid, not elastic. Glad I splurged on this one!

    So adorable and well worth every penny

    This is worth the $$$
    LOVE this dress! However..I don't live near an Anthropologie store...I had to order it online 3 different times until I got the correct size. I usually wear a 6, and the 0 fit! It's a great length. Good material. Really different than anything you would see anyone else wearing. I can't wait to wear it!

    Too long but beautiful
    This dress is really pretty with quality fabric and lining. But if your not 6 feet tall forget it. It is SO long! I'm sending back because I'd have to hem so much I think the proportion will be off.

    Beautiful but not for pear shapes
    I loved this dress in the pictures sooooo much. Unfortunately I had to send it back- it is just wrong for my body type. I ordered a six, and while it was pretty loose around my ribcage where the empire waist is, and plenty roomy over the boobs (34 B), it was wayyyyy too tight over the hips and thighs. The material is slightly stretchy so I was just able to pull it on, but it was so tight on the hips that the fabric gaped at the waist. It doesn't seem like it in the photos, but the skirt has a kind of fishtail shape. The top was blousy and loose, and looks shorter than it does on the model- probably because of the whole boob situation. If you have narrow hips and a long torso, it would probably work better on you. Oh and the background is navy blue, not black.

    This dress is absolutely beautiful! I wore it to a black tie event and received so many compliments. This dress does run a whole size small. I ordered a 6 but had to return and get the 8. I am 5'9" and have an athletic build. The top is loose with an empire waist. This dress has a mermaid fit at the waist and butt and then at the bottom flares. This is a very long dress and even at 5'9" I wore 4.5" heels and still had to watch the way I walked so I wouldn't trip on the hem.

    Beautiful Dress for Curves
    I have been coveting this dress since it came out, but the cost is much more than my normal budget for dresses. Well, I am getting married this year and have to wear this to my bridal shower. I tried on the black in the store and ordered the ivory. It is stunning. I am quite curvy and the stretch of the dress is perfect. I am normally a size 14, but a 12 worked just great.

    I couldn't walk away from this one.
    I usually stalk a dress until it goes on sale but I ended up paying full price despite having no use for the dress at this present time. I am usually a size 8 petite but I liked the way the 6 petite looked more. It looks better fitted in my opinion. If the fit on the model seems good, then I would stay with your regular size, for me, I liked it tight because it really looked wonderful with my curves but still very classic. It is very sheer in the areas with less fabric though there is a nude bodice under the dress so it wouldn't be great for the office parties and such since it suggests the revealing of skin. This is one of those dresses that are extremely memorable and breathtaking.

    Amazingly beautiful!
    This dress is just as beautiful in photos as it is in person. So unique and so flattering! I wore this dress for my engagement photoshoot and I can see myself wearing it for years to come! I got the 00 P and its perfect.
