I'm absolutely in love with this dress! I was looking for something for an outdoor wedding and this is it. It runs a bit big but the Xsmall fit perfectly. The fabric flows without looking bulky and the colors are beautiful. Bonus- it doesn't seem to wrinkle so packing it for travel will not be an issue! I'm pretty sure this is my new favorite summer dress.

I wore this dress to a bridal shower this weekend and it was perfect- I felt comfortable and pretty, but not too showy, and got several compliments on it. This dress is so much more prettier in person. I've never been a fan of color-blocking until I saw it in store and just loved the way it came together. I ordered a xxs petite (5'2" 102 lbs) and it fits perfectly. Maybe could have also gone up a size for the xs petite also but in no way in mine too small.

Better than on the model
This dress has much more going for it than shown online. It flows beautifully without being way too voluminous. The small was a little tight across the chest and I worried that going to the medium it would be too big in the hips but it was fine. The lengh is much shorter on me than the model but I'm 6'1 so that's not a surprise. And the gray in the pic is really more of a pretty blue. Dress is made well like most Maeve dresses and was worth the price.
I was looking for the perfect dress for my daughter's bat mitzvah is this was the one. I ordered about 10 and returned them all, and then the week of the event, I saw this online, it arrived and it was THE dress. First off, it is figure flattering, has interesting details and was both conservative and sexy at the same time. I felt wonderful in it, and received many compliments. Here are the important details: I'm 5'6", 127 lbs and the 4 fit like a glove. There is stretch to the fabric, so it is very comfortable. It is important to note that the length is mis-stated in the details, which list it as 38". That would have been above the knee on me, but the dress fit exactly the length as shown on the model (which is what I was hoping for).

I chose this dress, after many of hours of searching, for my mom. It was for an informal, outdoor wedding, where she was the mother of the groom, my brother. My mom's a wonderful looking senior. I had difficulty finding a dress that had sleeves (or she'd need a shrug or something for her arms because of her age), and not too short as is the style currently, and something that wouldn't be too outdated in the future, too attention consuming with brightness, but make her look beautiful. Making her beautiful is the easy part. All the other qualities were extremely difficult to find. She's 5'6", size 6, with a small tummy imperfection from having 4 kids. That can be taken care of with a pair of Spanx. She was the most gorgeous woman there and best-dressed! Both are tough wins considering the competition! This dress actually looks like it does in the Anthro photo, maybe slightly better. It's not too busy, it's almost a neutral in a way. I told her to order at least 2 different sizes because we were getting short of time, and with my experience with Anthro, even reading the reviews if available, the variance of size is very large with the exception of a couple familiar brands. She didn't take my advice and only ordered one size, it fit her perfectly. It was THE PERFECT dress. She can wear it on Easter Sunday's or to our small, rural, nice Friday parties in the future. One of the cool features of this dress is that while structured, it has a teensy bit of stretch that makes it easier to move around and sit down in. I still can't believe that I sent her multiple dresses to order from different stores, this being my favorite (but concerned it may look different in person and the issue of fit), and she ONLY ordered this one! We're 3 hours away from good shopping without traffic. We need online ordering unless we want to shop at Walmart. I STILL can't believe how amazing this dress turned out to be. It seemed incredibly made as well. There are also tons of different types of shoes you can wear with this dress because of all the background colors. She wore a dark purple one inch wedged shoes to blend with my new, fun sister-in-law's dark purple and lavender theme. This dress would wear well with so many other colors. Thank you to the Geisha Designers for designing this, and Anthro for making it available. Buy this designer now, while they're affordable. I'm sure if they cheap out in the furure on their now high quality, incredible well made in des tail and shape, their prices are going to double or triple. My mom was extremely comfortable (with the exception of the Spanx), and was able to really enjoy the blessed event.
We love Anthro, even though in other areas besides this dress, they've gone down in quality with a lot of clothes, have too many dry clean Ts, and have made a lot of the prices too high.

This dress has a beautiful pattern. And the material is lightweight, which is great for summer. It was huge on me! I ordered a 6P and the bag said 6P, however the dress said 12P. So I'm not sure what happened with the mix up in sizes. Have to return it, but would recommend trying it on in store if you can. It is quite aesthetically pleasing.
The colors of this dress are really pretty pastels, true to the photo. I ordered an XS (5'8" / 125# / 32C) and it fits like the photo. The top is a thicker fabric with a little stretch - it is not see through, but is very fitted. Im not sure if a strapless bra will show through the fabric or not.
The skirt will definitely need to be pressed and may wrinkle easily. It is only partially lined - on the mint colored portion. This is fine from the back, since the lining follows the high-low cut of the dress, but from the front it makes the skirt pretty sheer from mid- thigh down if you're in natural light. Not a deal breaker, but not as modest as I was hoping. Overall it's a pretty dress, very light and airy feeling!

the perfect summer dress!
I just received this dress in the mail today, and it exceeded my expectations. It is really light weight and the small fits like a glove (I'm 5'6, 135, and 34C). It also is not see through, which I worried about.
