    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.

    PERFECTION!!
    I ordered the black one in 0 - I am 115lbs 5'4 with a small bust and a bit of a booty. This dress is incredible. It hugs every curve and looks slamming. The detail is incredible. Very delicate lace on top and substantial material for the skirt below. So stunning! I own a fair amount of dresses and this is one of my favorites now. I can see myself wearing this to a variety of functions. My boyfriend even did a double take when I tried it on and was all, "WHOA." I love the black one so much that I'm ordering the navy and ivory ones too. Worth the splurge!!

    Beautiful Special Occassion Dress
    I wasn't sure about ordering this to wear to a fall wedding but I'm so happy I did. The fabric on the bodice is substantial and holds you in, but gives the look of "delicateness" with the lace. I also wasn't sure about ordering down a size, but I'm glad I did. It gives the dress a sexier fit. I'm usually a 4 and ordered the 2P for better length. I'm 5'2", 34d and go between 120-125 lbs. as a reference.

    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 - Well Made!
    I picked up this dress in size 8 and it fits so nice, well made compared to other Anthro dresses I have observed over the past year or so. The fabric is nice medium weight cotton blend twill and holds its shape, a plus it is lined and true to size based on other Anthro dresses of the past that were a size 8 - for my frame. I do find the front is a little low and the crack of my chest shows, so for me, for work, I will need to wear a think navy blue cami. Another plus is the pockets and they are positioned in the right place for me. The attached belt panel is a nice varied shades of pink, purple and orange stripes which would be a nice compliment to a colored shoe in those shades. I normally don't buy full prices Anthro clothes for the next season before the season starts, but with the dress promo and the fact this dress is well made and compared to other priced dresses elsewhere this was a win win purchase. I am 34DD chest, 140 pounds and 5'4 inches in height and the 8 fit perfectly. the length on me was about the length on the model but not so shortI would feel uncomfortable for work wear.

    Beautiful, great quality dress..with pockets!!!
    adorable, lined dress that fits true to size. as some of the other reviewers have noted, it is a little tricky to get it over your hips but, once on, it fit perfectly. very flattering. Love the detail to the waist and pockets are always a nice touch. I have large bust and hourglass figure and the 4 fit great...thought about how the 2 might fit as the size 4 a little big in the waist but am happy overall with the sizing. Pretty snug in the bust so the 2 would probably have me too busty

    Perfect!
    I was looking for a dress for an upcoming wedding and needed something that would be conservative enough for church but would also go with boots for the reception (no heels on cobblestone floors). I picked out several Anthro dresses in the store, and grabbed this one to try on on a whim. After trying on about seven dresses, this is the one I went home with. It's got slightly thicker material, which is nice for unpredictable Texas early spring, and feels substantial but not heavy. It does run slightly large- I'm typically a medium pretty much everywhere I shop, but had to size down for this (for reference I'm 5'8" and about 150 lbs; the lady at the shop said this brand tends to run large). The colors are a little brighter than the picture shows, particularly the orange/pinkish blooms. It also has pockets- ones that are big enough to fit my hands all the way in. After I go to this wedding, I'll have a great dress for dressier work days and nights out when it's a little colder outside.

    Beautiful classy dress
    Saw this dress online and wanted it. It was in stock at my local anthropologist store so went in to see it. It was more beautiful in person. Color was bright and the fit is perfect. Hid a little extra padding in the hips. Made me look and feel beautiful.

    Beautiful dress
    When I ordered this online during the dress sale event, I thought, in the back of my mind, that I would end up returning this dress...but I wanted to take a chance in ordering it since it lokos to be so beautiful! Per the recommendations from past reviewers, I ordered a size Small (5.2", 34C, 140 lbs.). The small fit perfectly - the material has some give to it, so even if I were heavier, the small still would have fit just fine. Since I am shorter than the model, the seam across the waist hits lower on me, which is perfect - I don't like the way the seam across the waist hits on the model, which is why I thought I would have to return this. The dress also falls to just a little bit above me knees. The material is a little heavier than a regular cotton dress...feels like it is almost quilted...but I don't feel like it will be an issue in the summer time. I live in Texas, and I still think this will be a great dress year round!

    Easy, flattering dress
    I had my eye on this after seeing it in the catalog and tried it on as soon as it came to my store. It is just what it looks like--an easy, comfy, flattering dress. The shape is unusual enough to make it interesting and the pattern is cute. I thought I would like the check/windowpane pattern more from the pictures, but I found the chevron stripe pattern more flattering on. It does run quite big, so I sized down (I am usually an 8/10 and got a small). There is more than enough room and the style is very forgiving. It is also fully lined which further eliminates any clinginess and gives the fabric a beautiful drape. I will get a lot of wear out of this--with leggings and boots in fall/winter and sandals in summer. It is also a little longer than I thought it would be, which is a nice surprise since a lot of Anthro's styles recently have been quite short on me (I'm 5'7). This hits at the perfect spot for a longer tunic and won't be too short with bare legs in summer. Overall, love it! (FD: I'm an employee of URBN, Inc.)

    Flattering, super comfy and versatile!
    I love this dress although because i am 5'11 and 42 years old, i only wear it as a tunic. i bought the black and white window pane pattern and have worn it TONS. this dress is so versatile! i wear it: - in cooler weather with a long sleeve, more fitted shirt underneath with a scarf, skinny jeans and boots - over a midi pencil skirt - in warmer weather with cropped leggings and sandals its so flattering and comfortable and the dress is lined with super soft fabric so it feels substantial and not thin or flimsy.

    Easy Wear
    This little dress is an easy relaxed fun dress to throw on with some sandals . I bought this in a medium and the fit is great. I usually wear a 10-12 top and an 8 bottom. This medium is ample enough on the top and perfect on the bottom. I purchased this dress in the white chevron pattern and I love this so much I am ordering it in the black and white window pane pattern. I am 66 years old and I look for comfort and style…this is it! The quality is great also. Great little dress for the price point!

    Gorgeous, versatile dress.
    I have been a long-time admirer of Anthropologie, but this is my first purchase. I love it so much, and can see myself wearing it to versatile occasions: a late summer wedding, a date on the boardwalk, the farmer's market, or even work with the right cardigan. The print is a bit more bold than what I usually wear, but the soft, earthy colours appeal to me. I'm a small/size 4 on top, and a 6 to 8 on bottoms. In dresses, I'm a 4 or 6. The hips on this dress are free, so I sized down to a 4. The sales clerk told me this dress was basically made for me (which was very sweet), but to be honestly I think it will be flattering on many shapes and sizes. I really love that the banding around the waist negates the need for a belt. My only wee concern is that the dress is polyester, and therefore won't breath as well as a natural fiber in the summer. However, I hope the flow of the skirt will still allow this to be comfortable on even the hottest day.

    Perfect
    Echo all the other reviews for the most part. Dress is a winner! Although polyester, fabric feels luxurious and is very flowing. I'm 5'6 nearly 5'7 and won't need to be hemmed. Originally ordered the size 8, based on reviews about no give and being TTS, but based on vanity sizing, I had to exchange for a size 6 as the fit was PERFECT like tailored. I would consider myself a size 8, but am actually an in between size due to being pear shaped, but narrow shouldered. I do think if you are busty (I'm a 34b/c) and a little thicker in the waist you may need to size up for top portion of dress.

    Very elegant & beautiful
    This dress is perfect for a special occasion or no occasion. It fits really well and is of high quality. I'm 5'6" & 120 lbs and bought size 2. I usually wear size 4/s everywhere else. But I find that anything I buy from Anthropologie runs a little big. The length is perfect with small heels, 3" or so. I would say it would be fine with higher heels as well.
