    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.

    Classy, Sexy & A True Head-Turner
    This dress is sure to solicit compliments. The intricate lace detail is beautiful, and the nude slip underneath gives just enough risque appeal, but it's still classy. It's extremely versatile - I can wear this on a date night, or at a work cocktail event, or a winter evening wedding. Works with or without tights. The only downside for me is that the clips on the front can come apart easily - if you plan on dancing in this dress, beware! I'm just very conscious of this and keep my moves to a two-step when I dance. Also - this dresses nude is complimenting on all shades - it compliments my chocolate brown skin, and the model looks great too!

    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.

    Perfect!
    These pants are soo soft, comfortable and look and feel great on. I have a pair of the classic Sateen Stevies in black from last year, I've machine washed and dried them (cold, inside-out) MANY times and they haven't faded, still look and feel like new every time I take them out. I'm petite (5'3), so when I saw this ankle version in the store I gave it a try. Again, the fit is just perfect and pretty much the same, although they are a little lower rise than the classic Sateen Stevies. I'm around 120# and curvy and took my regular 26. I just couldn't leave the store without these, and I'm thrilled that I don't have to get them hemmed! FYI, I'm generally not a full price shopper at Anthro, but I've watched the classic version of these pants on my wishlist for over a year, hoping to get another pair on sale, and they haven't been marked down. The price is high, but quality and material is excellent, they are easy to clean and don't wrinkle, so in my budget-minded opinion, well worth the money.

    wardrobe staple
    These pants fit great, wash well and for the most part keep their shape. My favorite AG stevies are in this sateen fabric because they can be dressed up a bit more. I own multiple pairs of the black and grey because they are so versatile. I would say they run smaller than most AG pants though. I'm usually a 28 and in these I always purchase size 29.

    I have a strange shape(hourglass) and these jeans fit really well.Also have very narrow legs.The cut makes me look slim and the feel of the material is very soft.So nice I bought one in another color.IT was a bit of a tight fit and I bought it a size up.

    Gorgeous well made skirt
    This is a substantially well made skirt and incredibly flattering. I'm 5'5" with a 28" waist and 37" hips, and the M was too small on me. I normally like my skirts at my waist but this skirt should really fall at the natural waist to be most flattering. The material is stretchy and has some give and is very flowy. I wish I could exchange it for a Petite size but they are sold out. So I'm going to exchange it for a regular Small. It is a little long, falling about mid-calf. I would prefer it falling just below the knee, but still is a gorgeous skirt I feel great in. Paired with a plain white short sleeve blouse as shown in the pics is absolutely perfect.

    A lot of skirt
    I saw this skirt in the catalog and instantly fell in love, so I decided to order it. Before it arrived, I had second thoughts (where will I wear it?) and decided I'd have to return it, since it was too late to cancel the order. When it came, I tried it on and liked it, but it's a whole lot of skirt. While it is a lovely design and color, it reminded me very much of the skirts my bridesmaids wore when I got married 12 years ago. I felt it was quite costumey for someone in their late 30s, so I decided to send it back. I'm 5'5" and curvy, and I still found the skirt flattering, if snug around my true waist. The skirt is definitely a midi and hit a few inches above my ankles. And as another reviewer mentioned, there are quite a few unfinished roses with pieces of the mesh material hanging down. I worried about snagging them on something. Overall, it's a beautiful statement piece, but I felt it was too young and too over-the-top for my style these days. I sent it back.

    Whats not to LOVE!
    From the minute I saw this skirt I knew that I had to have it and that It would be coming home with me. Its perfection. I am 5'6" and the length hits just below my knees. So perfect midi length. The waist fits TTS. I initially tried on a size S and thought the waist might be a tad big, but then tried on the XS and while it fit, I don't think I could eat and be able to sit in it without it being too tight (my waist is about 26.5 in), so I decided to go with the S. It looks fabulous with a belt and just a simple white tee. There are two little tiny issues I have with it that aren't a big deal. The skirt is really heavy becuse of the material used and the lining. Not a big deal but its not really a great summer skirt. The other is that the material is so thick that where it was trimmed at the waist band seam it is a little tiny bit bulky, but again its not a huge deal, and not a deal at all if you opt to wear a belt.

    Even better in person
    OK. Pics do NOT do this poncho justice. Online I kind of looked at this like "oh, ok, cute, next..." but that is impossible to do when you see it in person. It is just too cute for words. The maze color is so darn pretty. And there are these ADORABLE button closures under the sleeves. The design is awesome. Fits TTS, IMO. I vacillate between M and L, and because of the sleeve style I went with the large. If you tend to go between sizes and you have a small upper body frame, I would go to your lower end. If you are like me and have broad shoulders and larger arms, I would go with your larger size. The ONLY caveat I would write is the sleeves are dolman. It comes down to a preference thing; for me, I am just not a huge fan of the style. But with that written this poncho can pull it off. Get this sweater! It will work with jeans, leggings, and even skirts and is perfect for casual nights or can even be dressed up for the office. A real winner!

    Want One In Every Color!
    Purchased the Maize! I love, love, love it. Bought a Petite Medium. This Poncho is very forgiving, so I believe if you get your regular size or go up one size, it will fit perfectly. I am coming back and purchasing the Ivory. If I could I would also get the Two remaining colors. This is this perfect length for me. I am 5' and 125 lbs if this helps anyone. I think I could of gotten a small but love the way the medium fit. The sleeves are also the perfect length. Very cuddly sweater and oh soooo flattering. This was money well spent. It's like putting on your favorite sweatshirt, as far as comfort, only you look so classy in this! Love the design in the Poncho also. Honestly some one hit it out of the park on this one as far as design. If your size is available, grab one before there Gone. Highly recommend this sweater!

    Beautiful addition to your fall wardrobe
    When I saw this sweater in the catalog I was instantly obsessed and so happy when I saw it in person at my local Anthro store. I tried on both the M and L as I tend to run in between sizes. Both sizes fit, but I felt that sizing up was best for my frame. I am broader through the shoulders then the hips and I have a longish torso. Although the M fit, whenever I raised my arms the sweater came up too much for my comfort showing my tummy. I would say that if you have a smaller frame up top, go with your normal size but if you have a longer torso or broader shoulders, size up. The sweater is made of cotton for anyone whose skin is sensitive to wool. My only complaint is the price, I hate paying full price, but the detailing on the sweater won me over and I thought that this is the kind of sweater that will not see the sales rack for a long time. I plan to wear this sweater with skinny jeans and cute flats or riding boots.

    Modern LBD!
    This is an epic dress. I feel like Joan Holloway from Mad Men in it :) I hesitated a long time over the full price and took advantage of the recent sale on dresses. It was still more than I would normally pay but so, so worth it. I usually buy Anthro clothes in 14/L. I sized up to an XL (as I do with other Bailey44 dresses) and it's still a very close fit. This dress is great for an hourglass figure. If I was pear shaped or self conscious about lower abdomen/thigh areas, I might skip this dress. (Let me add, I do plan on shapewear for a more streamlined look.) The material and cut make it very clingy and the dress is designed to come to a narrow point at the bottom, exaggerating the V shape from the waist down. I was kind of surprised by this, and if you need more material to balance your shape or less material due to height, be aware. I really appreciate that this is a modern version of a pin-up dress without showing any cleavage. It makes it so much more versatile to wear just about anywhere. A new favorite!

    Gorgeous and beautifully made
    I hesitated to try on such a form fitting dress but I couldn't resist just trying - the very dark teal green was too enticing. I tried the dress and was shocked to find it so flattering. Being proportioned a bit larger on the bottom, I thought that this dress would accentuate that but it was quite the opposite! Due to the details at the neckline and the width of the sleeves at the shoulders, the dress balanced out my proportions. The ruche detailing throughout the dress also was flattering and did not add lumps and bumps. t skimmed over everything. After purchasing/wearing, I had it cleaned and it came back looking just as beautiful as new. Most importantly - this dress is incredibly comfortable.

    Sexy and elegant
    this dress is so comfy and does not choke you, for example, it does not ride up. it's so soft and i love the ruching detail. the pic on the anthro website shows the dress sitting above the knees, which it's able to do. However, it's naturally long, and can sit right below your knees, which is where I wore it the other night and it only rode past 1/2 my knee.

    Amazing!
    I thought that I had found a pair of jeans that I loved when I found the Abercrombie jeans 5 years ago. They fit nice, albeit a little tight in the legs, but were very soft and comfortable. But now that I've essentially outgrown their demographic, I thought I'd try a new pair of jeans. I've been wearing the pilco stet's for a while, and they were nice (and 19.95 in clearance!) but they weren't a perfect fit. So I tried some ag jeans on in store the other day, only I wasn't ready to pay 213$ for them. So when I found this pair in clearance, I was over joyed! They fit perfectly, which is amazing seeing as if jeans fit my legs, they are always too loose in the waist (years of being a back catcher made my thighs slightly disproportionally thick). These jeans wash up amazingly, and they don't stretch out. I'm not usually one to wear jeans multiple times before washing, but I was running late and threw these on, and they looked as good on day two as they did day one. I can't wait to run out and grab another pair. I would highly recommend these jeans!

    A closet staple
    I have often favored other brands of high end jeans (always on sale!), but had never tried on AG jeans until one day when I was perusing the Anthro sale room and stumbled across some. I have been on the hunt for a "normal" wash pair of AG jeans on sale ever since. I am slender and moderately tall (5'7'), but have a rounder rear. These jeans (in Landing) hug my figure without lookiing or feeling too tight. Length is typically a problem for me too; I have a pretty long waist which means sometimes full-length jeans are a bit longer on me than I prefer. These hit right where they should and also look great cuffed as well. They're also lightweight enough to wear throughout most of the year, even in my midwest/south region. Like another reviewer, I would put an asterick on the 5 star rating due to the price (though the sale price helps).

    Perfect for petites!
    Thank you Anthro and AG for offering the classic Stevie in petite sizes! I love the regular Stevie cut but have always had to scrunch and roll up the hem so during the recent free shipping promotion, I ordered the petite version in both grey and blue in 25P (I'm usually a size 25), thinking I would try them on for size but keep only one pair given the high price. The fit is so perfect and flattering, and it's so hard to find such well fitting jeans, I decided to splurge and keep both pairs. I've already worn them both multiple times so I think they're a good investment in keeping with typical AG quality. Fellow petites, these trump the Stevie Ankle! I believe they're a genuine petite cut - not only is the hem shorter but the overall fit is tailored down and slimmer at the knee and opening. I'm 5'2" so these may be a tad short for taller petites. Note that the blue color way feels softer than the grey, but the grey is also a perfect neutral. Highly recommend these jeans and only wish that Anthro carried petite sizes in stores so that other petites could try them on.

    Adorable AND flattering!
    As the previous reviewer pointed out, despite the name of this skirt it is not remotely a Fairisle pattern: definitely more Southwestern. Whatever the pattern, the colors are fantastic. And the fit is even better! Cut closely enough to hug the curves, but in a thick enough material to camouflage any slight lumps & bumps. I'm just under 5'5" and the length on me is approx the same as on the model, perhaps slightly longer. It really does create a nice long, lean silhouette, even if you're not especially tall. Like a flowy breezy maxi is a great alternative in the summer, I think this will be an equally great fall/winter alternative to the standard skinny jeans & boots. And while I sometimes struggle with what footwear to pair with a maxi in the winter, this looked great with the booties I had on when I tried it at the store. Quality seems very good (overpriced, as most Anthro items are, but different enough to make it worthwhile). I have not worn it repeatedly or washed it yet, but this is one of those Anthro buys I'm really excited about!

    love this skirt
    I love this skirt, I too, wish they would make it in another print. I also like to wear my shirts out because I am short waisted. I have only worn it once so far, and I wore it with a black fitted tank top, a grey Saturday sunday moto jacket from last year, and black lizard cowboy boots. I also plan to wear a black pleather moto jacket, a black lace tank top and black frye harness boots. I think it goes well with denim as well, a denim jacket and a black tank top beneath., with some black clogs.

    Even Prettier in Person
    I bought online and it's even prettier in person! I wasn't sure whether to order a XS or S. I'm 5'5" 118 lbs. with a small waist and fuller hips/thighs. I went with a small and it fits perfect IF I wear it lower than my normal waist line. The wide-banded elastic waistband allows you to adjust for perfect fit on your waist/hips. This will naturally affect the length of the skirt. Its much shorter than I expected--so even more the reason to wear it below my natural waist. Though a XS would have fit my waist better, it would not have been long enough. As such, I will only be able to wear flat or very low heels. All things considered, I absolutely LOVE it !! The colors are vibrant, the material is high quality (of course!), and the flow and fit are very comfy. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
