    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!

    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 dress, high-quality fabric
    I purchased this dress to wear to a spring gala, and I am so pleased. I tend to shy away from prints, especially when dressing up, but this one is so beautiful, and the clean, classic lines of this dress offset the boldness of the print. The fabric is even more stunning in person than in the photo, and the fit is very flattering. I am 5'6" and 114 lbs. and I purchased a size 2. It is slightly large in the shoulders, but the fit through the hips is perfect, so I don't think I would want to go down to a size 0. I plan on wearing this with silver peep-toe pumps and simple, dangly earrings. My only complaint is that it had a very strong smell (of fabric dyes, I think), when I took it out of the package. I am hoping this will dissipate after a few days of letting it air out on a hanger, outside of the closet.

    luxurious and gorgeous
    My normal size 10 fits great. As other reviewer mentioned, the dress is so gorgeous! The fabric has Thai silk like texture and looks very durable, it has no stretch to it. Totally worth full price.

    Gorgeous
    I haven't purchased from anthropologie for several years because the quality of the fabric used in clothing had deteriorated. I am pleased to say this dress is gorgeous, the fabric is of a good quality, the design is lovely and the colors are striking. I am 5' 3.5" and weigh 123 lbs. I purchased a petite size 6P and the fit is perfect. I hope serious consideration will be given to continually provide clothing made from quality fabric? This purchase is an encouraging sign.

    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.

    Well Designed
    Overall, this dress is really pretty. It fits true to size, and there are little snaps in all the right places to keep the material in place. However, i am sending the dress back for 2 reasons. The quality of the material for the price point is just not quite up to par. Also, the dress I received looked as if it had been worn and returned and then sent to me. It was stained with make up, and the white material looked slightly dingy in certain areas.

    Made for a princess
    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.
