This dress is a show-stopper and has exquisite movement. I'll be wearing it to a cocktail party where I'll be on my feet for most of the evening. The styling is unique and timeless. I can easily wear this dress as resort wear, out for a nice dinner, or cocktail party/semi formal.
I'm 5'4, 114 lbs, small B cup. My body type is straight, no curves. I have longer legs than torso. The dress looks a little longer on me than on the model, but it's still a fun length. I tried on the small, but it was way too large. The XS fit much better, but it's still just a little big in the chest area. I'll either take it in just a smidge or wear a more padded bra. The dress slipped on very easily - no need to wiggle or force it on. There are no zippers on garment.
The colors look more vibrant in pictures. I feel in real life the colors are a bit more muted.
It's such a great dress, I just had to have it while it was available and I was more than happy to pay retail for it!

beautiful colors & pattern, unique design
Feminine yet edgy dress, fabric also good for occasions like cocktail parties and summer weddings. The 2 swing shoulder panels make this dress unique. The top of the dress is a little more halter-like than in the picture with a sport-cut back. I've even worn my dress with the swingy back panels tied low in the front, sarong style for a different silhouette. I'm 5 foot tall, athletic build and this dress provides a nice flare, the pattern is not overwhelming for a small person. I ordered the XXS and the front hem falls 3 inches above my knee. Colors are beautiful, navy, chartreuse and powder blue, looks much better in person than in the photo. Am so glad I bought this fun dress for spring.

I was happy to find this at my local store after seeing it on the website. Love the color - the deep blue is gorgeous and a nice change from pastels. It took me a few minutes to figure out how the back works. It's a racer back that has strips attached at the top of the shoulders and along the side seams, so the middle of the back is open and the strips flutter behind you as you walk. I am 5'6" 100 lbs so the length was a bit longer than on the 5'10" model but still a couple inches above my knees. The fit was true to size; I tried the xs and it was large in the chest area, which is typical. This does come in xxs but only through the website, so the store ordered it for me (free shipping - thanks Anthro!). I plan to wear this as is for one look and with a belt for a second look.
This is the third dress I've bought and again the colour and fit are nothing like I expected.
The colours in the blue, pink, white and navy are more vibrant than the picture. I tried on the beige and grey first and found while it fit well and swung well. The colour for the kind of dress - summer - seemed bland. I tend to wear mostly black and grey so I surprised myself in choosing the multi colour.
The cap sleeve. This is where the dress shines. The cap sleeve was made for those of us with broader shoulders. It automatically makes my frame better proportioned.
I'm going to see how well the wash and hang dry goes as I sometimes find these new fabrics don't always respond well.
Being short I found the petite skirt length a teeny bit too short for m but I'm in the over mini skirt age range!

I was really excited to get this dress in the mail- I loved it when I saw it online, and after trying it on, I loved it just as much on me! There were no surprises- I found it to be pretty much exactly what I was expecting from the photos online. It's loose and flowy, I know I will be wearing it a lot this summer! It will be comfortable in the heat. It is very versatile, and can be accessorized in many ways, which I love! I ordered a medium petite, I may have been able to get away with a small, but am happy with the medium. Because it is loose it allows for a margin of error. I am glad that I went with the petite, because I think a regular would have been too long (I am 5'4).

Better than expected
I had tried the angled stripe swing top a couple of months ago, but returned it was because it was very unflattering. I was excited to see this dress because it is a similar design and hoped it would work better. And it does! I also preferred the red/blue/white dress over the designs offered for the top. Although I usually purchase more fitted dresses this does look really good in my usual petite size, and it is a great length for me at 5 ft 3 inches tall. It's a bit expensive for what it is, but it was a good deal during the recent dress promotion.
This is the first jumpsuit I have tried on and actually fits! I am in love with this jumpsuit and wish there were more colors/designs. The fabric is lightweight and extremely comfortable and I love the wide legs. I am a 10 and this bottoms fit fantastically and is extremely flattering on my derriere. I am a pear shape, so the top is a little bit loose. I may need to get it tailored just slightly but otherwise it is perfect.
A super awesome feature is that there is a snap sewn in on the bust so you can snap the top shut. Otherwise it would be gape and my bra would show. The tailoring will help with this as well.
The back is extremely flattering and just the right hint of ooooo la la.

I love this jumpsuit! I was looking for something that would be flattering and hide my tummy. This is perfect! Not only that, but I got soo may compliments! It fit true to size, and I would highly recommend it!

Bought this to wear to a wedding this weekend - it's amazing. I have trouble with jumpsuits and rompers being too short in the rise, but this was perfect. Great for my short torso/long legs/long rise. 3/5" heels and it was the perfect length (I'm 5'5"). Wrap top was approriate for my 32E chest, though a safety pin as a back-up to the snap closure was a really good idea when dancing. Able to wear any color undergarments - no showing. Also, able to wear a regular bra with it! Love it.
Love this dress. The fabric is beautiful and thick, not a light silk. Plan to wear this to a friend's party and in Paris this summer. Sizing seems to have been an issue so I ordered petite 4 and 6. The 4 was perfect on my 5'2, 125lb frame including the length. I am smaller on top and it is loose but nothing terrible. Love it, can't wait to wear this dress ASAP.

I love it!
The quality is excellent and the print is beautiful! My regular size is 4. Since I am only 5'3, I ordered petite 4 based on previous reviews. The dress fits like a glove! The skirt falls right above my knee. Though you could not adjust the shoulder straps, I don't think it is a big problem since it fits so well.

I can't wait to wear this, dress it up or down, it's stunning. I would say it fits TTS, I'm usually a medium or 8 in anthro and the fit is perfect. The length is also great, I'm 173cm tall (weight 63kg) and it fits just as on the model. The fabric is very good quality and colours are lovely on my fair complexion.
I was so in love with this dress based on the pictures in the flyer and on the Website, so I was happy to find it at my local store. The color was not exactly as I expected - less peach sorbet and more of a brighter shade of orange. It is also dressier than I expected, probably because of the length and the pouf at the bottom, due to the large amount of fabric. The organza is also a little stiffer than I thought it would be, which explains why the pleats stick out a little more than I would have liked.
Had I had a special event coming up, I might have chosen to buy it, but since this is too dressy for work, this one stayed behind. I tried the 8, my regular size (145 lbs., 5'7") and the top was somewhat lose on me. I didn't try the 6 so I don't know if it would have fit better or been too tight.

Runs large for Petites
Gorgeous dress from my favorite designers at Anthro but one of those Moulinette's that rund large in the bodice so if you are like me, not gifted there, the dress will not fit well. Otherwise it is beautiful and wish the peite were truly petite. Moulinette is very much a guess on the fit issues for me at a really small size.

Perfect summer dress
I saw this in the store and had to try it on! The color is to die for!! It is definitely cut for a smaller chested figure...so perfect for me! My daughter (9 years) oohed and aahed when she saw it on me! I love the sheer straps and the flirty full bodice. Super flattering on!! Bought it!
I've been browsing for a good maxi dress this summer as I am 21 weeks pregnant, but not really big enough for maternity dresses just yet. I also wanted something I could wear post pregnancy. This dress is stunning in person! I must have browsed by this on the website 10 or so times and never noticed it. But once I saw it in the store I knew I had to have it! As others have stated, you are mainly only fitting the top as the bottom flares out. It hits right around the ankles which is perfect for wedges, sandals or flats. I love that it isn't too long so it won't drag the ground in flats. I wore this yesterday and got so many compliments! It is super comfortable and doesn't make me look large while pregnant. Very pleased with this dress.

Perfect Summer Maxi
Ordered this on a whim, mostly because it was reasonably priced and machine-washable. It's hard to tell in the image if it is going to be heavy or a thin jersey, and thankfully it falls somewhere in between. The top portion is a double-layered jersey, while the skirt portion is one layer of the same fabric (medium-weight). I'd say the colors are pretty acurrate in the image - navy and cream, and I can wear my criss-cross backed bra with this easily. Totally comfortable and very flattering. I'm more of a straight-up-and-down figure (sadly, minimal curves), and find this to actually give me a little shape where I need it. Worth the full price!

This dress is amazingly flattering and beautiful to wear. It's a nice medium weight knit that feels substantial enough to not be clingy or see through and floats around your legs. Very comfortable and no tummy accentuation that you sometimes get with maxi dresses. :)
It's really long. I'm 5'6 1/2" and wearing a 4 inch wedge and it's still close to dusting the ground as I walk.
Major con though -- I wore it with a cross-body bag into work today and the knit across my chest is already pilling from just that one 20 minute commute. I've never had a knit top or dress do this before - at least not so quickly! It's noticeably worn after one morning!
I was looking for a dress for a bridal shower and I absolutely fell in love with this one. As my mom said, it's not my "typical style" because it's so structured, on the more modest side, and I don't know... Blair Waldorf-y. Most aspects of it are things that I would not typically go for in a dress, but I had to have it. It makes me feel like a fancy lady with her life together/a princess. It is also very flattering. My very favorite part about it has to be the skirt part. It's AH-MAZINGGGG looking and makes you want to twirl around in it for the rest of your life while baking pies or something. In summary, I would definitely recommend.
I am 5'6", 140 lbs and I got a 6.
(I also typically hate that kind of sleeve because I think it looks like I'm wearing a muscle tee... but that did not bother me with this dress.)

When I put this dress on, it took my breath away. It is that stunning. The fit is perfect. The color is deep and rich, like heavy cream. It falls at my lower knee (at 5'4")which is very flattering. I'll wear this to a summer wedding outside with no worries about sun showing a body silhouette. I have never been so happy with a dress!

I am so in love with this dress. I snagged a petite size 0 on Anthro Day and I am so glad I splurged! I am not the biggest fan of neoprene for clothing, but this far exceeded my expectations. The material is very soft and swingy, and fairly lightweight (considering neoprene is pretty weighty). I am 5"3 and the length is perfect, hitting just a few inches above the knee. I also love that it has pockets! I do wish that this dress was lined, as the seam at the waist can be slightly itchy, but I can easily overlook this because the design of the dress is so beautiful. I can't wait to wear this for my wedding rehearsal dinner in May!
