    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!

    beautiful colors & pattern, unique design
    Feminine yet edgy dress, fabric also good for occasions like cocktail parties and summer weddings. The 2 swing shoulder panels make this dress unique. The top of the dress is a little more halter-like than in the picture with a sport-cut back. I've even worn my dress with the swingy back panels tied low in the front, sarong style for a different silhouette. I'm 5 foot tall, athletic build and this dress provides a nice flare, the pattern is not overwhelming for a small person. I ordered the XXS and the front hem falls 3 inches above my knee. Colors are beautiful, navy, chartreuse and powder blue, looks much better in person than in the photo. Am so glad I bought this fun dress for spring.

    I was happy to find this at my local store after seeing it on the website. Love the color - the deep blue is gorgeous and a nice change from pastels. It took me a few minutes to figure out how the back works. It's a racer back that has strips attached at the top of the shoulders and along the side seams, so the middle of the back is open and the strips flutter behind you as you walk. I am 5'6" 100 lbs so the length was a bit longer than on the 5'10" model but still a couple inches above my knees. The fit was true to size; I tried the xs and it was large in the chest area, which is typical. This does come in xxs but only through the website, so the store ordered it for me (free shipping - thanks Anthro!). I plan to wear this as is for one look and with a belt for a second look.

    Amazing piece of art
    I fell inlove as soon as I saw this dress in store. Because of such a high price, I was debating if I should buy it or not. Finally, I got this dress size 0 which is my true size in Anthro. I tried two different sizes 0 and 2. It runs somewhat bigger than It shows so I got my size 0. This dress runs big in chest area but tight in hip area. I have no Kardashian looking hip and butt, but still tighter than upper part of my body. Overall, this dress has exquisite quality and design. This dress can be two thums up worthy investment with timeless design and color that you will love forever. When you decide to buy this dress, it's better to try two different sizes according to your body type.

    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.

    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.

    Perfect Mix
    I saw this at the Anthropologie store I work at and ran to it! I love the idea of mixing prints and this dress does it for you flawlessly. The quality is really good, heavier material than it looks like online. I live in Atlanta like the other reviewer and I will be saving this for the early Fall unless I wear it inside. The brand is Moulinette Souers which I love. I am sometimes between sizes and in this dress took my smaller size, a 6 regular. Planning to wear this with nude shoes to lots of special occasions. Also thinking I will wear this in the Fall with boots)

    I had been eyeing this dress from the moment it came into Anthro, when the 20 percent sale came I jumped at it. It fits perfect Very flattering. I wore it for our Wedding Anniversary and received numerous compliments. Super comfortable. Anthropologie never fails this Anthroholic...

    Pretty & Unique
    I admired this dress online but debated since I'm not crazy abt sequins & wld prob not see it in the store b/c it's Online Excl. Well a size 0 turned up at my local store & it really is a beautiful dress! It looked roomy on the hanger so decided to try to get it on just to see what it looked like - but that wasn't happening! I'm usually a 4 or 6-6P, so no surprise. I then decided I wld order later after looking at any reviews. I am 5'3", 115#, 36C - read the reviews & wasn't sure what to do as far as size. I decided to order the 6P & it was a good choice. Great fit & looks on me as in the pic except the length falls at abt 2" above my knee- perfect! Armholes are fine - not too big. Not tight in the bust area or shoulders. Overall a great fit. Also, the fabric is not too thin or thick & bulky, the dress is fully lined & no itchiness at all.

    In Love!
    I have been eyeing this dress online, which shocked both me and my husband as I am a girl who HATES sequins. I don't know what it is about this dress that drew me into it, but it did! Since I do hate sequins, I didn't want to order this dress at the full price, so thankfully the dress sale event happened. This dress is even more gorgeous in person, but beware - it is NOT a fitted dress. It is a straight up and down dress, so you must have some sort of curves to make this dress work (either slightly busty or curvy in the hips). Ordinarily you could belt a dress to give it shape, but I don't think this one would look very good with a belt - plus, you'd run the risk of messing up the sequins. For reference, I am 5'2". 34C, 140lbs., and I ordered the size 6. I had plenty of room in the dress (it thankfully was not snug in the stomach area), but I do think the 4 would have been too small for me.

    Gorgeous dress!
    This dress is fabulous! The fabric has a little weight to it so it hangs nicely. I can't tell you the number of compliments I received at my rehearsal cocktail party. I am looking forward to another opportunity to wear it again. I love the shift style but I still think it runs a little large. I measured myself before hand to be sure because I was in a time crunch and I was exactly a 2 petite. When it arrived I felt like I could have worn a 0.

    Better In Real Life!!!
    I think this dress looks not so great on the model.... but it is STUNNING in person, and looks great on a more "everygirl" frame. I tried it on in the store and just fell in LOVE. The perfect go-to dress for wedding events this summer! (Finally the fit and flare dress I have been looking for!) I bought my regular size 8 and it fits like a glove. It certainly is pricey, but the quality is certainly there. I can't wait to wear it to some rehearsal dinners next month!

    classic styling
    While the back-shoulder inset of this dress is unique, the rest of this dress is classically styled. The wonderful 'brocade' like fabric gives a richness to this dress that must be seen and felt. Love this dress and it's sunny color, it's ability to be dressy without being over the top. Great for a wedding I am going to, and will be terrific for other dinners and events this summer. Comfortable and classic.

    Unique Fabric
    My first thought on this dress was "Mad Men" style. The fabric is much much more beautiful in person and is very soft! The details of the embroidery are exquisite. Paired with heels and a cardigan for work and can also dress down. I love the fit - straight and forgiving of problem areas (tummy in particular) without being frumpy. Worth every penny and a great investment piece!
