This dress is really adorable. And it has pockets!! The fabric is nice, in a heavier weight and a quilted pattern. I have to disagree with the previous commenters about the fit -- I am 5'5", 125 -130 lbs, and the 4 fit as expected. If anything it was a bit loose in the waist. If it was available in stores I would have tried on a 2, but since it's online only I'll keep the 4. Very cute and versatile dress, a great purchase.

Perfect versatile dress
I love this dress. The fit, color, texture and weight, the amount of flare, etc.... Everything is so flattering. I also love the cap sleeves and back zipper. It can easily be dressed up or down with different shoes and accessories. This is one of my favorite purchases from Anthropologie this year. I said true to size, but just like what the previous reviewer noted, the waist is definitely on the small side. I am 5'2'', 105lb. The size 0 fits me perfectly. My waist is pretty small, so I usually

Fit is strange
I love, love, love this dress! The zipper in the back is fabulous. The material and color are beautiful. The only problem, which is a big problem, I guess, was the fit. I got the 8 and it was a little big in the shoulders and then too small in the back and waist. I am ordering the 10 just because I love it so much, but I don't really expect the shoulders to work. I want to love this dress. It could be dressed up for a wedding or special occasion or down a little for dinner. I just loved it.

Just got this dress today. It's very pretty, very classic, and the quality is good. The dress fits me like glove, it is very versatile. Perfect for fall or winter.

Very well made but waistline sits high
After seeing how this looked on model in the picture I had a feeling it might be not only a bit short but also high waisted. So I took a chance and ordered a Regular size 2. I am 5'1 115lbs, so I typically order a petite 2. Received this today and am very happy I made that choice. The waistline hits where it should and the skirt hit right at my knees. The fabric is perfect for winter. I was actually surprised at the weight of the dress when I pulled it from the box - it was very heavy. The lace

This dress is so flattering! I absolutely love it! It hides a multitude of flaws. The sleeves are just the perfect length for me, as is the length of the hem. The waist also sits right where I want it in the regular sizes. The material is comfortable and has a little give to be a little clingy on top but flares perfectly on the bottom not too far out that it makes your bottom half look huge. Just perfect!
This dress fits snug and like a glove. I bought it as a dressy option for work to wear under a blazer but also something I can transition from day to evening. The details are unique and the material is softer than expected. I got my usual petite xxs and it fits perfectly.

Fit a little off
Beautiful dress. Elegant, comfortable, classic. That said, the fit is a little off . . . Oddly tight just under the bust, which I have never experienced in a dress before . . .Fit was perfect everywhere else . . And no, I'm not particularly busty, so it was a bit odd. Also, the sides under the arms and back are quite sheer, so you can see your bra straps through it . . .That said, it is a stunning dress. I didn't buy it in the end due to the fit issue but I absolutely loved it.

I really like this dress. It fits beautifully and is a nice quality. It's a bit more conservative looking in person than I thought it might be, but still it's unique enough and has a stylish cut with some nice details. I ordered 6P and it couldn't fit me better all over - I'm 3'4 37-28-36. On my computer the dress looks more violet but in person more blue.
I recommend this jumpsuit with one big caveat -
I was really excited when i saw this online and I ordered it right away, because its a beautiful jumpsuit that is office appropriate. It arrived; it fits well, is flattering, and seems well made.
However, I was not expecting that the design is very different from the picture - apparently, each one is unique; they didn't place the fabric the same way in my jumpsuit as in the picture. Unfortunately, the way it landed on mine, I have very little of

There's only a tiny bit of it on one of the sleeves, and some swathes on the leg, so overall the outfit is much more plain. I was disappointed and considered returning it, but I would just want to order it again and hope to get lucky with a better placement of the pattern, and so I somewhat reluctantly decided to just keep it, because i like the fit and the concept. I just wish it was executed more consistently. If the pattern had been better, i would give this 5 stars. It's otherwise a great outfit. I got a lot of compliments on it.

Love this jumpsuit. Sophisticated and fun. I'm going to wear for my brothers wedding rehearsal dinner in Paris and maybe my holiday work event in Dec.

Love the subtle pattern, I think it will be great for a number of occasions. The fit is very flattering. Not lined, but high quality heavyweight fabric does not seem to make it necessary.
I was looking for a dress for the holiday party, but didnt think the shiny dresses suit my style at all. This dress is perfect, it shows enough skin but not overwhelming.

This is such a darling velvet dress. Understated, yet eye catching, I am very fond of it. The cut is flattering to all and the gathered fabric does not add bulk to the waist. There is a fun tulle underskirt to give just the right amount of volume. The straps creep ever so slightly toward being off shoulder, but fear not because there are loops and fasteners to hold your bra in place.
I am very thrilled to have found my holiday party dress so early and can't wait to wear it!

Say "Yes!" to the Dress!
Since I ship south of the border, I expected one big, wrinkly mess out of the box. Not so! But that's not where the surprise ended. It may not be obvious from the photo but this dress features a full tulle underskirt. It stops a few inches away from the trim so it won't peek. The lining is fabulous enough to mention, feat. delicate bra strap holders. The dress is made for an hourglass, to be sure; in my case it still required a bra to properly fill the balcony duty (36B). While the fabric is

I find it very difficult to find office friendly yet unique designs and feel this one fits the bill and also has the ability to be dressed up for the evening. I am "curvy on bottom" so I sized up from my normal Anthro 4 to a 6 and surprisingly the dress fit my hips just fine. I'm 5'8" 140 about 36-27-36 if it helps as I know it's hard to determine sometimes if this style will fit a more curvy figure...my advice is to go up a size if you are. The fabric I found true to the photo and the emerald

Shimmering green classic cocktail dress
I love this dress because it is everything I have been looking for. It is flattering because of the details and it gives the illusion of an hourglass figure if you don't have one. I love that it has sleeves because sometimes I just don't feel like finding a shawl or bolero or whatever in case I get suddenly anxious about my arms. The green is dark and shimmering almost like lace over jewel tone emerald. Love.

Beautiful dress, cheap components
This dress is stunning, no doubt - a shimmering forest green under a black teardrop motif, thick material, nicely cut, with pocket panels that are forgiving to a belly. However, the fact that this dress has zero stretch (which is fine, if that's what you're looking for), coupled with what is quite possibly the cheapest zipper ever manufactured, make this dress exhausting to put on. I'm normally a 14/16 at Anthro, and I ordered the 16 just to be safe, and the waist is EXACTLY the size of my
... read more waist. Given that Anthro items usually run slightly big, I was surprised (and ever so slightly disappointed). Therefore, it was quite a struggle to put on - take that as reassurance to size up if you're deciding between sizes. However, the dress is roomy in the shoulders (great for broadly shouldered girls like me) and not cripplingly tight around the rear - I could at least wriggle it up over my thighs so I could use the bathroom without having to break a sweat taking it on and off.
Love this dress! Very flattering fit. Love the sleeve length so you don't have to worry about layers. The detailing is very nice. The slip underneath is lined with black sequins adding to the party vibe. Only con is that the dress runs large. I ordered a size 6 and 4, the 4 fit great. If you are in need of a great holiday dress I would recommend!

Loved how this dress looked and felt on. The material, including the under layer was well constructed. Had a little issue with the zipper, not very smooth. When ordering a petite i usually need a 12p for the bust area. This dress runs large. The dress is currently not available in the store to try on. Great for a special occasion or holiday event.
The design is simple and fashionable. It stretches, which makes it comfortable to wear. I'm so happy that I can make different outfits with this dress.

I wanted to love it but....
It is so comfortable and I love the cut so I had decided to keep it but every time I looked at it it just looks too worn. The distressing is what I don't like. It is very faded around the neck and I don't like that. So after trying to convince myself I love it, I just don't.

cute & simple
tried it on in store and found it cute and comfortable, it might run a little big since I was expecting to fit into small but found the xs fit and looked better. I will consider when on sale. I felt that it was way over priced.However If money is no issue I would buy it.
I was desperate for a dress to wear to a wedding when I saw this dress. Someone had just returned it, a size 4 (I'm usually a 6.) I wasn't going to try it, but the sales associate said," Go ahead-you never know." I did, and it fit like a glove. The fabric stretches, yet holds it shape. Unique and flattering. Sold!

Loved it, Loved it, Loved it
I was at my local store store and there was one there -My Size- It fits true to size. I am 34DD, size 6 in skirts and it fit me perfectly in size 6. If I had to size up, it would be too loose on the top.
Love all Byron Lans Dresses and this is no exception.

Although this was love at first sight, I hesitated paying full price. I went ahead and ordered this with the 20% discount last week. This is absolutely stunning and I'm so glad I purchased it. You can't go wrong with this dress. I can't wait to wear it. I would say this runs a tad big. I'm normally between a 4- 6 (more often a 6) and the 4 was a perfect fit.
This dress is just stunning. The pictures online just barely do it justice. The colors are rich and bold. The beading is well done and very boho. The print looks rich and really high end. This is a very classic Anthro piece. Classic in its shape and classic in its design. I generally can wear a L or XL in most Anthro, but I'm very curvy...and unfortunately this dress was too snug for my hips. It fit well on top but was too tight in the body. It is a bit slimmer than it appears online, but I

Great Earthy Tunic
I recently purchased this tunic. It has a beautiful earthy bohemian vibe, and the fabric is thick, stretchy, and soft. I love the pattern and the colors are great together: sap green, mustard, and rust. I bought it in a size Large and I am usually a M or L in Anthro. It fits pretty true to size, but hugs the body, so if you want a billowy look, size up. I am also 5' 6" and it's a tad short in the back, so this is one to wear with leggings or opaque tights. I recommend!

Beautiful dress, just wish it worked on me
Tried this dress in two different sizes and just couldn't get a god fit for me. I found the upper arms a little snug and unforgiving if you don't have slim arms. It is a beautiful dress in person, probably more so than in the photos, and a nice thick quality feel. It didn't work on my frame, but I definitely recommend you give it a try.
