    Flattering, cute, and professional
    I have been eyeing this dress up for months but was a little nervous about ordering it on line because some of the reviews indicated it runs small. In the end, I couldn't resist and I'm so pleased with everything about this dress! First, it fits PERFECTLY. I am 5 ft 2 and about 120 pounds. I normally wear an XS/size 0-2 but lately I've been flirting with slightly larger sizes for skirts and pants. I bought this dress in size 0 and it fits everywhere just right. I would say it runs true to size, and it's incredibly flattering the way it is fitting on the top half and sort of tulip shaped on the skirt part (if you're a little out of shape through your stomach and thigh area, this is the dress for you!). I also don't normally wear V-necks because they make me self conscious about showing too much chest, but this V-neck is adorable and modest. And I simply love the multi colored "belt". This dress is adorable, yet professional because of the tailored clean lines and fairly stiff fabric. Would not look out of place at work, at a wedding, or at the races! I love it.

    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.

    Great Dress
    I had high hopes for this dress after seeing it online and falling in love with it, and when I received it in the mail, it did not disappoint! I ordered a 6P, and it fits perfectly. I am usually always a 6 at Anthropologie, but was concerned it would be too big after reading other reviews. It was definitely not too big. Had I gone down to a 4, I think it would have been too tight across the bust. I'm glad I went with the petite, the length is perfect. It is fun and flirty, perfect for summer nights out! The pockets are a great touch. It's very flattering, and I forsee getting a lot of compliments on this one! For reference, I am 5'4, 34B and 135lbs.

    My new favorite!
    I purchased this wonderful dress without trying it on, hoping that it would be as cute on me as it was on the hanger. I rushed home to try it on and was not disappointed. I typically wear a 6 in most dresses and tops at Anthro, so I purchased this in a 6 which fit me like a glove. The portion around the ribcage is quite fitted so if you are busty or have a larger ribcage you might need to size up. The fabric is heavy and might not be best for super hot weather but I believe that the weight is part of what makes this fit so well. As another reviewer said, this piece is a nice change as it is very high quality and design. If it came in other colors I certainly would purchase them all! For reference I am 5/7" 140lbs 36B

    just kinda the best dress of the moment. very flattering. sturdy. light. perfect length. made me happy. I'm very hourglass curvy. size 12. if anything it was a touch too big on top but it worked awesome anyway. overall a near perfect fit. dresses are often too short for me due to my lower curves - but this one was just long enough to be flirty while I still felt like I could really move around and I didn't worry about anything showing. . & i looked great too. thanks.

    I am not the norm or target size or age for any designer; at 63 and AA special order bras AND 5'2" no one is looking to "please" me. I am a DRESS person - as pants, shorts and skirts mostly never fit. With that said, the wide range of different designers at Anthro is a plus as I do occasionally find a regular 0 that fits ME, but also there are the 00petites that fall off. THIS sun dress is the later - the best feature should be the pleated, fitted bodice but the 00petite that I was luckily able to try at my favorite Atlanta store (now 5 in our area :)) - Lenox Mall. The material is a nice sturdy cotton - outside and in. The IDEA is good and without being too baring, this is a more flexible sun dress idea. The pattern on the one I tried was more background than print. The print colors are not bright. Overall the quality and design idea is good but you will need to be able to "fill" the bodice to get the right fit. Trying on in store is always best SO ANTHRO: MORE IN-STORE PETITE DEPARTMENTS, PLEASE!

    Rehearsal Dinner Dress
    Just left the store with this! I tried it on and got tons of compliments! It's a beautiful dress! I'm normally a medium in this store, but this dress runs just a tad bigger. I'm 5'4" and weigh roughly 137 lbs. The small fit perfectly!
