When I saw this dress in the store, I fell in love. I was reluctant to try the dress on because I felt as though the top would draw attention to my chest. I am usually a 36D on top and 4-6 on bottom and tried on a medium. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the dress actually minimized my chest and fit beautifully. It's a very comfortable and flattering dress. Its versatility is a huge plus...perfect for work or for casual get-togethers.

This is the perfect dress. The wrap top is flattering, even to smaller-chested ladies (as a side note, the way the top is constructed it would be a perfect nursing dress, and because it has a high waist it would even work for awhile in pregnancy) such as myself. I ordered a med though according to the size chart I'm a small, and the fit is perfect. The skirt is rayon and polyester, with some shine to it, but not sparkly.

My new favorite dress!
I stalked this dress for months deciding whether or not I really needed it. Obviously I eventually opted to buy, and my only regret was not getting it in both colors before it sold out online. Such a beaut and soooo comfortable! Like other reviewers said it can be dressed up and down to your liking. It will be in my closet until it falls apart. Another wonderful anthro purchase couldn't be happier.
fabulous dress; hangs well, flattering to a lumpy/curvy figure, except it has pockets which make it slightly lumpy in the wrong place. They are easy to sew shut and the pocket fabric cut off. Unusual coloring true to photo. Silk fabric nice, well made. there are slits down the sleeve that add interest but hide fat arms. A little hard to take off. It should have had a zipper.

I'm presently overweight and have trouble finding anything to look good (165#, 5'7''), I bought this dress in a size large, fits great and conceals my flaws. The medium was to tight and also shorter than I would like. I suppose I'm a size 12...just in denial. It falls an inch or so above the knee in size large. I like that my chubby arms are covered, and still the open side gives it a little something extra. Has a slip. The colors are true-except I can't really see the lovely medium turquoise at the top on my computer. Also can be hand washed. Can be dressed up or down. If you can grab it on a sale even better.

Great all purpose summer dress
This is a great little dress to wear with cute little flat sandals for a more casual look or a pair of heels for work. The print is lovely and brighter than pictured. The hem hits right above my knee and the fit is a little boxy so I purchased one size down (I typically wear a S or 4). I love that is made with a natural fiber fabric. Definitely worth the price. Would definitely recommend.
I also REALLY wanted to keep this dress. The material has no stretch, so you're going to want it slightly loose in order to sit down and move around in it. Measurements are 32-24.5-32.5. 5'2". 32c. I couldn't come close to zipping the XXSP, yet there was extra room in the bust. It fit everywhere else. I often size down in sheath dresses to fit my narrow hips better, but I need some stretch to the fabric in the top to accommodate my broad athletic shoulders. This dress has no stretch. Couldn't even close to get the side zip up under my left arm.
My suggestion when ordering this dress, if all of your measurements don't fit neatly into one size, is to order the size that matches your largest measurement. I am a 0p bust, 00-0p waist, and 00p hips, which translates to an XSP on top and XXSP on the bottom. I should have sized up to an XSP. It's sold out (boo!) but I'm betting on a lot of returns/ size exchanges on this dress and hope I'll be able to snag the XSP.

Wonderful summer dress!
I just wanted to chime in, because I thought this dress was adorable online, but was afraid of fit after reading reviews. Ordered anyway and am so glad I did. Really so pretty and flattering. Very cute summer date dress. I'm typically a 0 and the XS fit perfectly. No give in fabric, but I think it stretched out a tiny bit after a day of wear, and, yes, I was able to sit down comfortably and eat dinner...just wouldn't recommend if you're planning on hitting a big buffet! This dress DOES need to be a little snug to look good.

This is a chic little dress. Fits perfectly and super flattering.
It's very pink. Not red AT ALL. But even though it reminds me of Pepto, I love it and can't wait to wear it. I wish it came in other colors too - I would buy it in multiples!
What a beautiful dress! Totally va-va voom if you want it to be, but can also be paired with flats for a more casual look. When I put this on, my friend said "Wow you look like someone on TV!"
I'm 5'2", busty on top and definitely have some hips (size 2-4 generally) and the size Small fit me perfectly. I suspect that this dress will look good on any body type, and will surely give curves to the folks that want some. The ruching on the bottom hides any flaws and enhances the derriere and makes curvy bodies look amazing, and the blousy top hides any tummy issues while still looking great. The only (very tiny) issue that I had was that there is a little gap in the sleeves where you can see into the dress around the bust (again just a small gap, but I know it'll bother me), but I'll just ask my seamstress to put in a couple darts to close that up. I plan to wear this with nude heels to elongate my legs, and pile on delicate jewelry. Wish this came in other colors!!

I LOVED this dress. quality is not the best but also not the best. But it fits perfectly and has lots of give to it for curves. It is very flattering. Also you can wash at home, which is a time saver. All in all I love this dress and bought it in both colors. The aqua is more of a green color. The red is fabulous.

I got lots of compliments. Super comfy dress that can be dressed up or down. Breezy up top and fitted in bottom. Eye catching combo.
I was scared the print would seem too busy but it doesn't. It's silk, so it feels so light and airy and wonderful. The buttons on the front cover only the chest and are placed close together; I'm glad because I hate gapping. I'm 5'7" and the dress hits the top of my feet. There is a slit in the front. For me it runs up to my knee. The dress fits more like an empire waist on me due to my chest (38C) but that works for my style. I got the medium and it fit perfectly.

The photo does not do this dress justice! Elegant, colors are beautiful and pattern is subtle/understated. The photo does not show the slit in the front which adds a touch of sexiness to the maxi length. Wearing to a beach birthday party next week and will definitely be on my trip to Asia. Happy I took a chance (no reviews when I purchased) dress is worth it!

I made a mistake and ordered a Petite as needed only the 54" in length.
Just a little tight, would have been better to get a regular and have taken up
This dress is great - super cute design, flattering even on my size L figure, and made by an ethical clothing line that helps artisans in Ghana. Buying it and loving it is a no brainer for me. I did end up with two dresses because of some inconsistencies, though. The fabric is handmade and because of that there were about 5 rogue white spots on the first dress (on the left in the picture I posted). Not a deal breaker for me, but they were front and center, so I wanted another dress to compare to. Only one small dot out of line on this one (again, no big deal), but the second dress is significantly brighter in color than the first true navy dress I received. Just know that because of the nature of how this dress is made, there will be some inconsistencies. I don't mind, knowing that the folks who made the dress were treated well!

Perfect! Flattering! Comfortable!
I absolutely love this dress and it's worth the investment being, essentially, a $150 sundress. It's fit and flair but the fit has give in the waistband so it can last you, COMFORTABLY, through those marathon BBQs when you start to eat your weight in hot dogs. I'm a small B cup so I go sans bra and feel completely covered with the adorable neckline and flirty tie-back. Stretchy yet form-fitting waist? No bra? Dark color so no need for spanx? Length down to my knees so no fear of accidental reveals? Perfecto.

Very flattering and cute, but not worth the price
This dress looks exactly as pictured online. The cut is so flattering on my curvy shape, even a little sexy, but also does a great job covering my chest perfectly. It's a little fitted through the waist, but I would still call it true to size. The only issue I have with it, is the quality versus the price. It seems more like a H&M $50 or less quality than its full asking price. Having said that, I was blown away with the look, once I paired it with a wide black belt and cardigan, that I'll probably end up keep it, regardless of my thoughts on its worth.
