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!

Great Dress for curvey women
I just purchased this dress in the store. Shopping online I would have never guess that this is a wonderful dress. It's navy blue and cream, looks very dark online but is prettier in person, as well as very soft and flattering. I'm a 36 D and usually a M in Anthro dresses and went for a small. It's a tiny bit snug in the waist but fit better up top in the small so I purchased that size. I'm 5'6 and the dress draped the floor. If you are looking for something comfortable, effortless and flattering (esp if you have curves), I highly recommend this dress!

This dress is a total beauty! The fabric has a bit of weight to it but is soft and flatters well. It's not clingy at all! The top is more fitted and the skirt has some fullness to it. It hits just above the waist and is SO flattering! The fit is true to size...the skirt is full so you are really only fitting the top of the dress. This is a summer must have! I feel like it will end up being a staple every since year!
While I loved the look and fit in the upper body of the dress, the length of the dress was a huge issue for me. I'm 5'4", and with the XS, there were several inches puddling on the floor at my feet. The pattern looks exactly as it does in the pictures, but there is quite a strong odor... I'm assuming from the dye in the material. While the material feels great on the skin, it is a weighty material, but not bothersome to me. The material is very stretchy, which was nice. And, while it did show a bit of cleavage (30DD), it wasn't too much, and you could not see my bra.

Wanted to love this dress!
Loved the print and styling, it was just too long!

Great summer dress
I adore the print, the colors are so fun and vibrant. Just as pictured. I am large busted, 36DD and the large fit. However, for me, it needs a bandeau bra or undershirt to not be spilling out every side. Especially since the arm holes are in a "v" on the sides, allowing for side boob. Love the dress, i will keep it if I can find a stylish undergarment to work.
This dress is even more beautiful in person, it makes a person feels like a princess. The details are so breathtaking on the flowers and the dress has great structure, yet the fabric is not stiff at all. It is definitely a gown and if you are short like me, the dress needs to be altered. It is true to size (I'm 34B) and a size 6 fits well, although the straps are a bit long because I'm short. It is an investment piece and will last a person for years to come. My personal opinion is that if anyone would like to purchase this gown, it's worth going into the store and try it on and have the sales associate help you with the fit. I own a lot of dresses but haven't seen one this gorgeous in a long time.
I received my dress today and its so adorable. I wasn't sure what size I was because I never bought this designer before. I went with my regular size (small) and the dress fit perfect. The fabric is amazing, so soft and comfortable. I am tall but for some reason maxi's are still a little long but this one is perfect. I will be wearing a flat sandal and flip flops as well so the length was just right on this dress. Normally they make these day dresses so long you trip over them, not this one. I love the stripe in this dress makes you look slender. The blue coloring is so pretty. I am very happy with my purchase and this was a really great find.
Do yourself a favor and go to your local Anthro to try this on! It is so much more gorgeous in person, the photos of the models don't do it justice. It's flattering and wildly comfortable - you can dress it up for a wedding or down for a warm summer day. Only con is the price but I'm sure I'll get my money's worth.
I'm shopping for a dress for my September wedding. I couldn't stop looking at this dress online, so I ordered it. I love the fabric, the color, the long, swishy skirt, but the cut is not flattering on me. The bodice is blouse-y and the torso is straight, not flattering to my waistline. I'm 60 years old, but I still don't want to look matronly at my wedding. So back it goes -- too bad!
This dress fits great. I am a little bigger in the top and had no problems with the fit. I love how bright the colors are. The only reason I gave this dress 4 stars instead of 5 is that it's a little more sheer than I had expected. It would be a great swimsuit cover though or you could wear it with a slip. I am going to keep it
