    Perfection…and, yes, size down.
    This dress fit me like a glove. I'm not alone, either - check out the rave reviews posted by women of all ages, shapes and sizes! I am 5'4", 125 pounds, 34D, very short-waisted and athletic but curvy. I am normally a size 6, but finally settled on the size 4 regular after trying the 6P. It hits about 2-3 inches below my knees, which is both flattering and a pleasant alternative to my other dresses, which are either mini or full-length. The smaller size just feels better and I think the closer fit helps the lace detail pop a bit more. The nude colored slip/lining also alleviated any modesty issues I had with respect to the "peekaboo" detailing throughout the bodice. It might look like you're showing a lot of skin, but it certainly doesn't feel like it once you're wearing it. It's classy and it's sexy, which is usually more than you can ask of a dress at this price point. Bonus: my flesh-colored bra is virtually undetectable, which is key given my cup size and the fact that I have 2 young kids.

    My go-to dress!
    I was at the Seattle Anthro and not having any luck with finding a dress for my class reunion. I came across this dress in 12P as a return on the lost & found rack. I tried many other dresses on that day, but after this one, I was sold! It was a bit pricey for me, but trust me, it has been well worth it. I was worried about the lace tearing/being too fragile, but it has held up wonderfully with no problems. So classy and it fits me just about perfectly. It hits me just at the middle of my knee. Don't let the price deter you, it is well worth it! For reference, I am not a tiny lady -- 5'2", 165lb, 36DD.

    I would get married in this dress.
    I went into my local Anthro store with my sister looking for something else, but saw this dress and had to "just try it on" in white. I'm normally a size 6, but there was only a 4 available in the store. I wasn't planning on purchasing, but once it was on, I didn't want to take it off. I happily paid full price, and my sister and I continued to gush about this dress the entire 20 minute drive home from the store. This dress is GORGEOUS. Even though you're completely covered, it's so figure-flattering and sexy. Definitely a head-turner. I've worn this twice and received many compliments from friends and strangers. It is expensive, but the quality is so good that I see it as an investment. It does run a bit big, so if you're in between sizes, size down. I'm sure a size 6 (if I had been patient enough to wait) would have been fine, but I liked the extra "va-va-voom" I got with the 4. I love the dress in white and am tempted to get it in another color as well! For reference, I am 5'5", 34C, and usually a size 6.

    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!

    Sweet and unique
    I love this dress! So cute and sweet and different than your average sheath dress because of the back. The print is beautiful, almost 70-ish, but in a good way. I might take it to the tailor to have a stitch popped into the back to hold the fabric in place. So the sides don't wing out too much. I don't really even have a specific place to wear this yet. But I had to have it. Someone has to get married eventually, I figure. I bought the XS, the S was too flowy on me and lost my shape. I'm 5'8", 120lbs, pretty straight up and down.

    I love this dress! It's so unique and fun, I can't wait to wear it to weddings this spring. The racer back detail is unexpected and the flowy back is going to be so fun and swingy. I usually wear a 6 at anthro and this fit true to size. Another winner!

    Wow, I am in love with this dress! I ordered a 2P and 4P. I am kind of in betweem these sizes, so I ordered both. The 4Petite fit more like a 2Petite, so I would say it runs a little small through the shoulders and chest. The 2P was a lot shorter waisted than the 4P, to where the sash cam right up under my breasts. Not at all how it looks on the model. I am 5'4" and the petite length was perfect. It hit me right about where the regular dress hits the model in the pictures. The detail in the pearls and diamonds is so beautiful. I cannot wait to wear this dress and would recommend it highly. I think it could be flattering on many different body types.

    I'm in love!
    This dress is even more gorgeous in person. The fabric is lovely and also drapes beautifully. Fits true to size however if you're petite like me (a bit under 5'4) you will need to get it hemmed. Design wise this isn't a problem. I really really love the neckline, so elegant!

    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.
