    Gorgeous, versatile dress.
    I have been a long-time admirer of Anthropologie, but this is my first purchase. I love it so much, and can see myself wearing it to versatile occasions: a late summer wedding, a date on the boardwalk, the farmer's market, or even work with the right cardigan. The print is a bit more bold than what I usually wear, but the soft, earthy colours appeal to me. I'm a small/size 4 on top, and a 6 to 8 on bottoms. In dresses, I'm a 4 or 6. The hips on this dress are free, so I sized down to a 4. The sales clerk told me this dress was basically made for me (which was very sweet), but to be honestly I think it will be flattering on many shapes and sizes. I really love that the banding around the waist negates the need for a belt. My only wee concern is that the dress is polyester, and therefore won't breath as well as a natural fiber in the summer. However, I hope the flow of the skirt will still allow this to be comfortable on even the hottest day.

    Flattering + Gorgeous gown
    I would have never, in a million years, have picked this dress for myself. I was desperately trying on every dress in the store, looking for something to wear to my brothers wedding. This was last on the hook, and once I tried it on, my jaw dropped at what I saw in the mirror. The fit is impeccable (once I went up a size) and I looked long, lean, and lovely. Fit info: I'm normally a size 4 at Anthro. Size 34C bra. This was snug in the boobie area and because I can't really wear a normal bra with this one, I went up to a size 6 in this dress so I can wear some of those stick on boobie lifter things or a strapless bra giving me some lift to my 2 kid having body. The waist still fits nicely even though now there is a bit of give in the top.

    Stunning dress worth the investment
    There are so many reviews on this dress so I tried to follow everyone's advice on sizing. Being 5'4" it's always a gamble whether to order regular or petite sizing. I ordered a 6 regular and it was still too long with heels on so I think the petite size will work better for my height. I am 32DD, 27-28" waist and 126# and the 6 was too loose around the waist and bust so I'm exchanging for a 4P. Besides the fit being off, I could still appreciate the construction and quality of the dress. It is absolutely stunning and worth full price!

    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.

    lovely dress
    I have this in the blue color and i am waiting for the red to come back in my size to purchase. It fits perfectly...I have a fit build, 34D chest, hourglass shape. Wearing a bra with this would be a challenge, so I wouldn't purchase it if you are not comfortable going without. I love it! Highly recommend.

    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.

    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.

    Beautiful
    This dress is gorgeous. I purchased it for my rehearsal dinner the night before my wedding since it is a cook out with casual dress. This is perfect, so visually interesting with the texture, beautiful finishing details. I am short so a purchased the petite and I am so glad I did! The length and fit are both perfect. I cannot wait to wear this!!!

    This is not your typical white dress. The texture of the dress is what drew me to it initially and I had to give it a try. I took my usual size 6 and it fits perfectly. Where do I start with so many pros? • The fabric isn't delicate. •The underlay is long enough to be modest and is also smooth to the skin. • The V back creates a lovely silhouette •The A line cut is so flattering to the body. • Most importantly it's so versatile, I tried it with a Pilcro denim jacket and a few long necklaces. Perfection. This will be your go to dress for several occasions.

    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.

    Stunning in person
    I love this dress. That said it is EXCEEDINGLY long - i am going to have to have it hemmed and i am 5'10 and tried it on with a crazy pair of Brian Atwood platform heels - and STILL it was too long - that said it will be gorgeous hemmed - it is so bright and the bandeau is so unique and pretty - I have a colorful arm tattoo so for me the dress is a beautiful way to accent the colors. I really love it and the lined linen falls beautifully. I have an average chest and because of the embroidered top and the fit i do not think i will need any more support that the dress provides if you worry about having to wear a bra with the lines of the dress.
