    WOW dress
    This dress is a show-stopper and has exquisite movement. I'll be wearing it to a cocktail party where I'll be on my feet for most of the evening. The styling is unique and timeless. I can easily wear this dress as resort wear, out for a nice dinner, or cocktail party/semi formal. I'm 5'4, 114 lbs, small B cup. My body type is straight, no curves. I have longer legs than torso. The dress looks a little longer on me than on the model, but it's still a fun length. I tried on the small, but it was way too large. The XS fit much better, but it's still just a little big in the chest area. I'll either take it in just a smidge or wear a more padded bra. The dress slipped on very easily - no need to wiggle or force it on. There are no zippers on garment. The colors look more vibrant in pictures. I feel in real life the colors are a bit more muted. It's such a great dress, I just had to have it while it was available and I was more than happy to pay retail for it!

    perfect for weddings
    I am usually an XS or S in anthro brands and I went with the XS on this one. I am a 34 C but still had room in the chest/arm holes in the S. The length is perfect for me, hits a few inches above the knee. The best part is the back, the swinging details dress it up just enough for nicer weddings, but you could also dress down with wedges for a shower or day event. Perfect for summer! The colors are even cuter in person! Must buy!!

    Seriously Perfect for Everything
    Okay, i saw this dress and although it usually takes me a week or so to commit to an anthro dress, i bought this one immediately. I love it so much, it is very unique and very comfortable. I usually wear a 0 at anthro but sometimes a 2 in the more fitted dresses. The XS is perfect. It is a little on the baggy side, but that is the cut not the sizing. I recommend this dress to anyone. I cannot wait to wear it out!

    This Dress is for You!
    I saw this dress in the catalogue and fell in love. Unfortunately when I went to order it, it had sold out of my size. I kept checking back just in case and was rewarded for my persistence. I ordered an 8 and it was very snug around my hips. I am small on top but curvier on the bottom. I really wanted the dress though so I ordered a 10 and a 12. I liked the roominess I had in the 12. Unfortunately, the larger sizes are sold out. But if you are smaller, you should really consider trying this dress. It's expensive but unique and sure to get lots of compliments. The one downfall to this dress is that it does kind of have a weird smell to it. But I can deal.

    Stunning
    I saw this dress in the store and instantly fell in love. I'm normally a 10 or 12 in Anthro dresses. I tried the 12 and could barely get it over my hips. It was very tight on the bottom and loose on the top (it's supposed to be this way). I'm 5'3 and probably needed a petite, but I worried it would fit even tighter than the regular 12. Something to note, the dress is very heavy. Make sure you're in an air conditioned space when wearing it - I wouldn't recommend this for any outdoor festivities.

    Magnificent dress
    I loved this dress from the moment I saw on the look book. I was debating between ordering the 4 or 6, finally deciding on the 6 based on the above reviews. However, when is arrived, it was very large. I would recommend ordering at least one size down. The dress had plenty of space in the bust area, and nicely fitted at waist and hips. Quality is exquisite. I cant wait to get the proper size so I can enjoy this masterpiece! !

    Timeless and Chic
    The picture just doesn't so is justice. I was a little worried that it would work for curvy figures, but the 8 fit like a glove. It is very well made with a silky lining that helps it slide right on. I bought it for my wedding - I"ll change into it just before we leave and head off to our honeymoon. I'm 5'5 135 lbs and a 34 DD.

    Just not for me
    SO disappointing! I coveted this dress for a few weeks then ordered it, intending on wearing it to a wedding. The reviews were great. I love the simple, classic clean lines. Looks like a beautiful and elegant dress. However it just did not look great on me. I can not put my finger on it. I am 5'6 and 140lb. Athletic and curvy. I ordered a size 6 fit great and back it went. It seemed a weird length a little too long and it belled out from the waist line more than I liked.

    Beautiful but...
    When on the body, this dress is gorgeous. Perfect for a semi-formal event or outdoor wedding. I'll be wearing it as Mother of the Bride for daughter's late summer wedding. I especially appreciate the fact that Anthropologie offers petite long/maxi dresses as those are incredibly difficult to find. I read previous reviews and though I'm normally a 2P or XSP in dresses, I ordered a 4P. The 4P was a good/snug fit. I could NOT have worn a smaller size, so I can only assume this dress runs a size small. Overall I'm happy with this purchase because of the overall look and flattering fit, but I feel as if the fabric quality (especially the very cheap polyester lining!!) make this dress overpriced. I'm almost tempted to rip out the lining and make an underslip of better fabric.

    My new fav!
    For a girl with some curves and height issue, it is so difficult to find dress this elegant and a perfect fit!

    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.

    Va Va Voom
    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.

    A True Classic
    This is such a pretty and unique dress . It has the Asian vibe that is so popular now but it is also sure to be a classic that won't go out of style. It fits TTS. I am 5 ft 2 in and wear a 0-2 and the petite 0 fits perfectly. The waist is fitted but there is ample room up top so focus on your waist size when ordering.

    Love this dress!
    This dress is very flattering! It is such a nice airy silk and the fabric drapes beautifully. I love that there is enough coverage on the arms and it is a great length; the waist is nicely defined in this dress as well with the way it is cut. The perfect summer dress...timeless and beautiful!

    Great Dress
    I am typically a size 10. I ordered size 8 which fits a little loose on me. I would probably fit into a size 6, except that I have broad shoulders. My hips, bust and waist would definitely fit into a size 6.

    Loved this dress but the fit runs big, had to order a smaller size 6
