Just received this dress this morning & I've been wearing it all day ever since BECAUSE IT'S JUST THAT GORGEOUS. YES the fit is loose & forgiving on the top; ordinarily I'm EITHER a Small or Extra Small in Anthropologie stuff & when I get pushed up from the XS to the S, it's always because of my chest measurement (I'm technically a 2 on the bottom and a 4 on the top). Based on previous customer reviews I decided to give the XS a try in this dress -- in spite of the fact it really only has to fit in the chest (waist & hips are free size, as you can see from the photos). I'm SO glad I listened to the previous reviewers! You CAN size down a little bit in this dress & in fact, you probably should. This dress has PLENTY of fabric on me as-is, I would not want any more fabric draping around me. It fits perfectly and looks absolutely drop-dead BEAUTIFUL exactly the way it is. PLUS it's loose enough -- particularly considering the airy kimono sleeves -- for this to be y our MOST COMFORTABLE dress on a super-hot day. Pure silk + airy construction = the equivalent of air conditioning in a dress! PLUS I know I said this before, but it merits saying again -- the dress is Just. Plain. GORGEOUS! I LOVE THIS DRESS!!!!!

Beautiful but runs large
Love love love this dress!!! The colors are so vibrant just like the picture. The review before me said it was short but I found it quite long but not too long. There's a lot of fabric which makes is flow beautifully but doesn't make you look larger. There's is a drawstring so you can synch your waist in. Definitely size down. I weigh 160 and usually am a size 10 in Anthro dresses so I got a Medium and I would've been fine in the small but it's not too big where I need to exchange it. Not disappointed with this dress in the slightest! Definitely worth the price...hey it's silk!

I appreciate that this is silk and not polyester. The dress has beautiful colors. It is a true coral, not as bright as pictured But still nice colors. the waistband is draw string and can expand, so you can size down. I usually am medium, but got small and it fits nice. for reference, I am 5'8 and 140 pounds. The kimono sleeves are nice too. The handkerchief hemline was a little too short. I was expecting longer Or more midi length. it drapes well too and very comfortable. Best to try on first.
