    Unique but still classic
    This laser cut, eyelet style dress is absolutely beautiful. I would have overlooked it online, but in person the detail and colors are just stunning. I'd say the blue is a bit brighter than shown online. The only reason I say that I think this dress runs small is due to the bust. I generally wear a size 0 which is what I ended up buying because it fit quite well overall, but it was a bit tight through my chest (for reference I'm a 32D). I think if you are smaller chested, it would probably be fine in your true size. I also think part of the problem was the zipper. The fact that this dress is relatively form fitted with a side zipper does not help with the slight sizing issues. The fabric is also of a nature that this zipper is a big sticky regardless. I actually hate the zipper, but I still love the dress. I think it would be perfect if the zipper were placed in the back rather than the side as I need a bit of help to get in it. Still worth the purchase in my opinion.

    beautiful and classic
    I had mixed feelings about this dress when I first saw it in the store. i was worried I would look like a tablecloth in it. I was choosing between this and another dress to wear to a wedding next month. When I put it on, I was still a still hesitant because I thought it looked a little too formal, but my husband who is a man of few words said it was the nicest dress he has seen me wear in years...that had me wondering about my other clothes, but also happy with the dress. I showed my sister and she agreed. My one hang up is that I don't think the scalloped edge lays flat on my chest. It doesn't seem to be a big deal when looking in the mirror but it bugs me. Overall, the dress was great.It also made me look very slim with the cut.

    Figure flattering silhouette
    While waiting in line for a dressing room at my local Anthro store, I kept seeing the sales associates bringing this dress to various ladies which peaked my interest. So I asked if I could try one on. This dress is gorgeous online, but one must see it in person to appreciate the details, especially the eyelet fabric and the scalloped edges around the neckline and the hem. It's very figure flattering and lady like. It's versatile enough that one can wear this to work one day, on a date the next day, and then to the Kentucky Derby. For those who like the casual look, I tried this on with a denim jacket and the bright blue flowers on the dress and the dark denim on the jacket complement each other. I'm 34B and usually wear size 6P in this brand. Tried on the Regular 6 and even though the length was appropriate (the hem fell right below the knees), the chest area was tight (thus one star off). I will order size 8 petite. Well done with the spring dresses, Anthro.

    Tricky bra, quality issues
    As previous reviewers have noted, this is tricky to style with a bra. As a D-cup, going without was not an option, but I found a backless plunge stick on bra from the most popular not-so-secret lingerie mall chain in America that just manages to hide under the silk bodice. It's another investment after the already expensive dress. With that covered, wow! It's a total Marilyn Monroe moment, especially in the eye-popping red. However, some other caveats - there was a loose silk thread in the back by the zipper pull straight out of the packaging, really a shame at this price point. And the length makes the sexy-thigh slit negligible on petites (even in the pic on the tall model you can see she's holding it up.) I will probably take this to the tailor to get a few inches taken off the bottom at some point. But I love the red too much to send it back, even at this price.

    I love this dress! I bought it in black and have it stashed in my closet for my next dressy occasion. I hate the pressure of having to find a great dress for an event - so when I find one, I buy it and have it ready for when something comes up. The fabric of this dress is very light, and there were a few threads hanging on it when it arrived. For the price, I think the quality could have been better. But, I still love it because the cut is fabulous. It is classy-sexy. Plan on buying some breast petals in lieu of a bra, and maybe also some fashion tape to avert any gaping fabric when you lean over. You will turn heads in this - in a good way.

    stunning, but not without some flaws
    First off, if I weren't pressed for time, I would have sent this dress back because of a couple of quality issues. Straight out of the plastic mailer, it has a minor pull in the silk on the back, and the seams don't line up from side to side perfectly on either side of the zipper. That being said, the navy is no longer an option on the website, and I don't have enough time to shop around for another navy dress before an upcoming event. Except for these minor flaws, the dress is fabulous. It looks stunning on! It runs big. I usually take a size 2-4. The 0 is snug around the rib cage and flows nicely over my stomach. The shoulders however are still a little big and may slip off. I have an A cup, thus it may just be because I don't fill the top very much, esp without a bra! As the previous reviewer stated, you probably need to be comfortable without a bra for this dress to work. But these issues are nothing that a little fashion tape and nipple covers can't solve. The dress is a bit more high maintenance than I would like. Beautiful mix of sexy and classy. I know I'll feel like a million bucks as long as I don't have a Janet Jackson Super Bowl moment.

    Very pretty!
    I love this dress. Tried it on in store today, but sadly they did not have it in petite. it was true to size, but the shoulders were a bit too wide and i'm hoping that can be solved with the petite version!

    lovely dress
    tried this on in white today and it was lovely. it has pockets, which is always a bonus in my book. very comfortable dress. wear a 32F bra and the size 4 fit very well, so might be generously cut.

    Great for an informal wedding
    I bought this dress because I needed something for my small informal wedding. It is perfect for the occasion because of the flared skirt, the front which looks perfect on bigger breasts, and the see through lacy back of the dress. It runs a little big, so definitely get a size down. The cotton is very soft and high quality. I recommend this dress even if for an elegant sea resort outfit.

    gorgeous dress
    This dress is even more beautiful in person. It is nicely lined and the horizontal stitching is gold which adds a bit of shimmer to the dress. It does run a size small, especially in the waist. I am 5'3", 120 lbs, 34C and a 4 fit well (even in the chest). I will be wearing this for my friend's wedding. Gorgeous dress anthro

    not as pictured
    This dress is prettier then pictured! It is quite shiny, but in a good way, very classy. The only problem is it runs at least two dress sizes small. I ordered a 4, but would need an 8. Worth it though!

    Stunning
    This is a beautiful dress....Picture does not do it justice. Picture Audrey Hepburn on date night! The material is of a good weight and the cut is sophisticated. The linen sparkles with gold interest. I am 5'3', 34C, 115# and the size 2 was snug above the waist.. The dress came to my knee. Unfortunately I think size 4 would be too long...it is disappointing that it is not offered in petite sizing. 4p would likely have been perfect!....

    Beautifully Made!
    This is a gorgeous dress with absolutely beautiful fabrics. The daisies have a pale yellow center and there is a deeper sunshine yellow accent at the waist which I did not notice on my computer screen. The lining has a very luxurious feel to it. The style, however, is a little young for me as the skirt is quite full so sadly it will be going back.
