Another great maxi by Maeve! This is a very well made dress. I am not typically a high/lo hemline fan but it is moderate and looks good. I love the faux wrap. You get the look of a wrap without having to worry about anything being exposed, because the flap around the front is completely sewn in. This dress ran long like the Verda maxi so I ordered a petite small and it's just the right length(I'm 5'6" 135 lbs). The cross over top is well fitted, I was nervous because sometimes these type of tops gape but it has great cpverage and is secure. It looked like it would be tight around the torso when I pulled it out of the package but there is plenty of stretch and the empire height waistline is flattering. Fabric is soft and comfy.My only complaint is that I wish the pattern on the ruched waist was centered with neckline. I'm sure they are all different but as someone who sews, it's something my eye is drawn to. If you have the luxury of buying in store maybe you can find one with a good pattern match. Overall very happy with this dress!

Soft & well constructed
I ordered this by mail during a special.
Potential cons: In person, I feel like the reds compete with the greens. At first I wasn't sure about the busy pattern, but I tend to go for solid colors, so it's more of a personal comfort thing. Pattern pacement does matter (otherwise you may end up with strangely placed "targets"). I wouldn't say it's the most slimming dress I've ever owned when you look at it from the side or back...
Pros: ....but it does flatter the figure from the front with the wrap front, bust construction, and waist. I wear a light cardigan over it to feel comfortable wearing it around at work and about. The colors themselves are very pretty. The fabric is very soft. At least one reviewer mentioned not liking the faux wrap. I don't mind it. I like wrap dresses, but they can be too dangerous if you live anywhere with wind.
FYI: I'm a hair under 5' 5". Based on the length of the dress on the model and her height, I correctly surmised I should get a petite. I took my regular size in the petite. Length worked out well.

My new favorite dress!
I ordered this in both colors, thinking I would return one. But, I loved it so much i kept both! The fit is super flattering and very forgiving. Can be dressy or casual. Just the perfect summer dress! Ordered the large but it was a bit big in the top and too long. The medium fit just right.
This dress is amazing quality and better in person that on the website and better than on the hanger. It is heavy fabric and the detail is beautiful. It is fitted in the bodice and flowing down from the waist down. I tried it on in the store and all the other people in the dressing room and sales people loved it. Two others went to try it on as well. It is perfect for summer and to wear for a bride at her bridal shower. The model must be very thin and does not fill in the dress well to really see the fit and style.

Perfect White Dress
I tried this on at an Anthro store with a floppy straw hat and got lots of compliments from other customers. Expensive for a simple, white summer dress, but well worth it. Looks simple on the hanger, but looks amazing on.
I'm 5'6", 135 lbs ... I purchased a size 4.
I cannot say enough about this dress! I love that Anthropologie takes into consideration the petite girls! That being said, after trying this on, I believe that anyone could pull this off. I found it true to size, soft, and fits like a glove. I would give it six stars if I could! The only beef I have is that the picture online does not do it justice! Way better in person.

Size ref: 5'1", 26 1/2 inch waist, short waisted
Size ordered: XS
The fit and length of this dress were perfect. The bottom of the dress just slightly touched the ground without shoes on. The waist was a nice snug fit. The silhouette is flattering, and made me feel like a little mermaid. There's no lining in the skirt, but it's not see-through.
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!
I purchased this in the store on April 9th for a trip to Tahiti. The material is beautiful and so is the dress. The only negative is that I have to take in the waist of the dress because it just falls straight and could look so much better with that adjustment. All in all, that's still worth it to have such a unique dress for the summer. Highly recommend. Also runs large - I am a size 4-6 and purchased an XS.
Gorgeous dress, soft high quality fabric and bright saturated colors. Very flattering cut out in back, highlights a good area instead of love handles. Had to return because it was a little too small and made me look extremely busty. Ordered a large. However, loved it and recommend!
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.
