    A dress for ALL
    Tried this dress on in L and XL. For reference, my measurements are 42-32-42 and generally a size 14. I usually have trouble with my full bust but (surprisingly) lately have been finding a lot of versatile dresses that work well for my body type at Anthro. The fabric is stretchy and it runs a little large as the XL fit loose at the waist, though perfect at the bust. The L fit perfect at the waist but stretched at the bust. I feel this fabric would stretch out a little over time so I would buy it in L. The length was perfect, a couple of inches above my knees. It would definitely be too short for me in the petite length, and I'm just 5'3.5". The side is interesting but it shows a bit of your bra, as you can see in the photos. I probably wouldn't wear this without a cardigan anyway as I'm self-conscious about my monstrous arms! I don't mind the front cut-out, I could probably stitch it up a little to be less open. Overall, a great find, and I highly recommend to gals on the double digit size range. I think the XL would fit a size 16 easily. Thank you anthro for the recent cute offerings in larger sizes that accommodate those of us with womanly curves. :o)

    Comfy, but key hole leaves too much cleavage, and arm holes are sized squarely -- oddly so that your bra shows. I sent this one back.

    Armholes too big
    The dress fits pretty well for the most part, but the arm openings are too low, show a good inch of bra. Quality fabric though, and other people might not have the same problem. Worth trying in, but I can't keep it.

    Buttons pull
    This dress is great for a casual trip to the grocery store or it can be dressed up with a belt and a statement necklace. It is tight on my arms (a problem I often have). The biggest problem is that the buttons pull even though I have plenty of room in the chest area. If I keep this dress, I'll have to leave it all the way unbuttoned.

    Relaxed and cute!
    I originally ordered a size Small but exchanged it for an XS. The fabric gives a bit and even though I typically have a problem with slim sleeves being too tight this style wasn't a problem. Im looking forward to wearing it with wedges for an upcoming outdoor casual wedding rehersal dinner.

    Cute dress!
    This dress is a great piece. Very well made. Like others said, the fabric is thick. I made the mistake of wearing on a HOT day and despite how cute I was, I was dying...it did not breathe. So don't wear it on a hot day. It ran a bit short on me, but that didn't outweigh how cute it was. Overall really unique dress given the print and stripes and all.

    Beautiful dress, and the fabric is very thick and spandex-y. For the Texas heat, this could be a no go. I am usually a small or size 4 in Anthro dresses, but definitely am going to return and try a medium. The length is shorter than I expected (5'6").

    Wedding Day Perfect….
    In need of a dress for my daughter to wear to my brother's wedding, we headed to Anthropologie. My daughter instantly fell in love with this dress. It is soft and comfortable, with a very fun, playful pattern. She wore it to the wedding last night and it was a 10+.

    A lovely dress that makes you feel lovely
    If you are looking for a dress that you can wear to the office on special days but also for a luncheon or dinner party, and you want to feel comfortable and glamorous at the same time, this unusual dress has to be your choice It has a double construction: a sleeveless dress with a sewn-on fluttery blouse over it.The blouse material is lightweight, the skirt, which is a flattering length, neither too mini or too below the knee dowdy is more sturdy so it does not ride up. It does not wrinkle even on the hottest day. The contrasting dots are unique and sophisticated.The cut of the neck and sleeves is modest and in good taste. The cut of the blouse dips gracefully in the back. In the fall I expect to wear it with a black blazer. You will be noticed. You will feel special.

    Just Adorable!
    I bought the dress in black and it is such a cute, flattering design. Nice stretchy fabric and washable. I sometimes wear a large in dresses but the medium fits perfectly. Highly recommend! Great service by Anthropologie as always.

    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!

    Fits perfectly
    I am almost 5'11, 165 lbs., 36DD and I ordered a size 10. It fits perfectly. You can wear a nude bra under it and the straps don't even show through the sheer material. The hem falls just below the knee on me, so if you are petite, you may need to hem it (if a petite size is unavailable). The shape of the dress is gorgeous, with the overlay creating a bit of a flare - very retro 1950's. I rarely spend this much money on a dress, but it was worth it.

    Great dress
    This is a lovely dress with a great outline. I weigh ~ 170lbs and wear a 36F bra and the 14 fit nicely. I agree that the straps are a dash long, but they come with bra fasteners so that they will not slip with a beige bra underneath. It's nice to find a flattering dress with room for womanly curves.

    simple, sophisticated summer dress
    This is the perfect summer dress. Simple and easy to wear and so flattering. The skirt is loose and light giving it a romantic feel. Can't wait to wear it when the weather finally gets warm. I ordered a medium petite.

    Flattering and comfortable
    This dress is really flattering on my body type. It's hard for me to find things that fit me correctly because I am tall (5'9") and while I look more straight up and down because I'm thin (125 lbs), I am actually technically an hourglass because my hips and chest are roughly the same measurement, and my waist is 10-11" smaller. That's an odd combination since I don't have a large chest. This dress fit well in xs, and the way it drapes flattered my small waist without making me look flat-chested or making my hips look huge. It's very rare for me to find clothes like that, definitely recommend this dress! Although when you put it on, you have to move the wrapped part into place, otherwise you can end up with it looking like the wrap is sewn funny, and the front wrap doesn't match with the back (like one of the photos). If you pull it into place, it doesn't do that. Also very comfortable!

    Beautiful Dress
    This dress is totally beautiful!! It's made of a heavy taffeta material and it's more formal in real life than it looks online. I'm usually a size 6/8 and the 6 fits perfectly. When the 20% sale came I had to snatch it up! I would defiantly recommend this dress!

    I saw this dress about two weeks ago. Caught my eye because in person the colors are much more rich. The quality is great. And from what I can remember it is not Eliza J, it's moulinette seours. So keep that in mind for sizing personally Eliza J dresses run smaller that Moulinette. I am 5'8" and the length is to the knee. Very pretty sturdy material.

    Reminds me of a corset
    I ordered 00P and it looked perfect on me. I am 5'3" and 90lb, I am so surprised to see that this dress gives me a nice hip contour and curve overall. But the waist line is in fact at the bottom of my ribcage that when I put all the buttons on and sit down, it is a little difficult for me to breathe. The many buttons and hooks and tight fit remind me of a corset. The bottom part of the dress has four thick layers, So if you have large hip already, it may make it bigger. I am going to try a regular 00 to see if it fits more comfortably.

    Great Dress
    This is a lovely dress. I found the Mona dress to be the most comfortable of all the dresses in this line. It has a bit of stretch, which means I can do things and not be afraid of ripping out the shoulders, and it doesn't require a lot of closures and tediousness each time it goes on or off. The hard part is that the 10 didn't fit tight enough. The 8 was too tight. This just means I need to go running more to make he 8 work.

    Heavy and Tight
    The weight of this dress surprised me. It is very heavy! The fabric and craftsmanship is stunning, but the dress is way too tight in the lower body for this size. I could barely take a small stride even with the lower button undone. For reference, I'm 5'1, 103 pounds, 32D, and reviewing a size 0P.

    Cute, but not perfect
    Tried this on in the store in an XS. (not quite 5'4, 120 lbs, 34C, petite but curvy). The top is pretty, though was a little tight (and the lace does not stretch on top). However, if I were to size up to a S the dress would be way too blousy and overtake me. Also, the lace goes across your shoulders, so if you wear a regular bra the straps will show. You'd probably want to wear a strapless. Also found the material a little "cheap" feeling for what I expected by looking at it online. I'd consider this on sale, but not full price.

    The color is fabulous but the shoulders are tight for the size I usually order . It seems to flare out quite a bit at the sides too . I have purchased many items from Holding Horses and want to like this more than I do, if I got a larger size it would really look like a tent on my size 4 shape so I am considering returning it.

    Pretty details
    I absolutely love this dress! After reading the first reviewer I was a bit hesitant about trying it on, but I'm so glad I did. I wore it with booties to the Taylor Swift concert this past weekend and got many compliments on it! I have a small bust so I was able to not wear a bra and was fine. The lace details at the top and the pattern of the dress as a whole is beautiful. This will be a great transition piece into Fall! I had a gift card to Anthro, which is why I was willing to pay the full price, but at the same time I'm pretty sure I would've bought it regardless. It's comfy and flowy and can be dressed up or down...I am around a Medium on top, but pear-shaped wearing about a 10-12 on bottoms and I purchased the Medium.

    Wonderful late-summer dress
    This dress is feminine, soft and breezy. The striped outer fabric is a quality georgette with just enough weight to give the dress great movement with a perfect drape. The under layer lines the dress from the neckline to hem, and it is a soft, t-shirt like blend that feels good next to the body and does not cling. A strapless bra/adhesive bra and/or a bandeau is all you need underneath. Usually a size 4 in Anthro dresses, and the S is just right. It's a tad longer than many of this year's dresses and actually perfect for 5'9" height. Beautiful, unusual color combo. If you love the photo, you'll love the dress.

    So cute!
    I tried this on in the store and my first thought was that it was a little too flowy, but then I decided that's what I like about it. The striped fabric is so light and pretty. The little grey layer underneath makes this dress unique and girly. I tried it with a belt, but I think it's pretty loose too. I'm 5'1", 109 lbs and the xs is a great length.

    Adore!
    I absolutely love this dress, the attendant also helped me pair a brown leather woven belt with it, I love it without though as well! Perfect for summer!
