    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.

    So Beautiful!
    Purchased this for mine and my husband's first date night post baby/wedding anniversary and simply felt sexy while wearing it.

    True to size
    I am 5 ft 2" and weigh around 103 lbs. I decided to try for a 0P according to the sizing chart. I would say that the measurements are true to size though that wasn't exactly a good thing for me. The waist and hips fit perfectly but because I'm small-chested (70B), there is substantial room at the chest and the dress looks a little wrinkled there :( This was quite upsetting for me since the pattern at the chest is one of the dress' unique features. The dress just covers my knee caps and will look really flattering if only my chest was a little fuller. Nonetheless, I will probably still keep it - that's what maximizers are for. :) The quality of the dress is good and there is a slight stretch to the skirt so climbing stairs/ getting out of car etc shouldn't a problem. The hooks in front do come off quite easily and I am quite sure there will be skirt wrinkles after sitting down for long.. I love the dress in ivory and plan to wear it on my wedding day for a casual reception.

    A masterpiece!
    Why, oh WHY did this have to arrive just in time for Christmas? LOL I saw this astonishing dress just after my Carismma Sheath dress, in black, arrived. At first I thought this version was too close, but irl, it's in a class of it's own. You can barely tell from the photo, but the fabric on the bodice and skirt are different. The top has tiny circles with dots of red. The placket is also a different pattern, but instead of the hot mess I expected, the whole thing works to make you look like the most stunning creature in the room. Very, very flattering on most body types, but I'd dare say especially on the hourglass girl. This is the dress I would wear to dinner, to weddings, to business meetings with a jacket, to tea, to lunch with the girls, where wouldn't I wear this? Fit is tts, much like the Carismma sheath. I pray that it doesn't sell out before I can get my hands on one! Or, maybe, just maybe, it will show up under the tree!

    Simply Gorgeous
    I have admired this dress forever and when I received a birthday discount code I decided to give it a try. I am not disappointed. The dress is beautiful...a classic! It is also seasonless as I will be wearing it to a spring event with nude pumps. It is well-made and the pictures do not show the intricate details in the design and materials of the dress.

    Even better than I hoped!
    I visited this dress many times on the website, hoping it would go on sale, but finally decided to bit the bullet and pay full price. Prior reviews listed its unique detail and surprises that made this dress a conversation piece (and why I love Anthropologie!) and it didn't disappoint! It is form fitting and sexy in a smart-girl way, but it also possesses an artistic/couture quality that renders it timeless. I am 5'6 and a 35" bust/128 lbs and went with the 4p, as I prefer the hem to hit me at or above the knee. The fabric has stretch, which allows it to fit to your body, not bulge and buckle as a stiff fabric would do. I also cut the belt loops and moved belt/ribbon down so it would hit my waist, as the petite waist was higher- no problem at all. I am SOOO happy I splurged and know this will be a 'go to' dress for years to come.

    In love
    I was looking for a dress for a bridal shower and I absolutely fell in love with this one. As my mom said, it's not my "typical style" because it's so structured, on the more modest side, and I don't know... Blair Waldorf-y. Most aspects of it are things that I would not typically go for in a dress, but I had to have it. It makes me feel like a fancy lady with her life together/a princess. It is also very flattering. My very favorite part about it has to be the skirt part. It's AH-MAZINGGGG looking and makes you want to twirl around in it for the rest of your life while baking pies or something. In summary, I would definitely recommend. I am 5'6", 140 lbs and I got a 6. (I also typically hate that kind of sleeve because I think it looks like I'm wearing a muscle tee... but that did not bother me with this dress.)

    GORGEOUS!
    I am so in love with this dress. I snagged a petite size 0 on Anthro Day and I am so glad I splurged! I am not the biggest fan of neoprene for clothing, but this far exceeded my expectations. The material is very soft and swingy, and fairly lightweight (considering neoprene is pretty weighty). I am 5"3 and the length is perfect, hitting just a few inches above the knee. I also love that it has pockets! I do wish that this dress was lined, as the seam at the waist can be slightly itchy, but I can easily overlook this because the design of the dress is so beautiful. I can't wait to wear this for my wedding rehearsal dinner in May!

    Flattering Fit
    This dress just arrived and I am so glad i got it - it is beautiful in the neoprene - it has a shine and the thick material is flattering. I am 5'10 and it hits right at mid thigh - the zipper is super easy and the roses are delicate and beautiful - i am thinking i will pair it with an army green fitted blazer to make it work ready and to give the hard/soft feel. I do think because of the material and the give if it you can size down especially if you are in between sizes but I am going to go true to size for myself.

    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!
