    Wearing them as I type...
    I didn't think I knew this designer personally, but I must bc these pants are made for me!!!!!!!!!!! This is my new go to pair of crops. The dark denim color is SO slimming, and the slight flare at the ankle is perfect. Not as bell as shown here. Also, these are exponentially softer and more comfortable than any other pair of jeans I've ever worn. EVER! They feel more like yoga pants than jeans, which means I will be dressing more like a real person on my days off than I tend to for the sake of comfort. They look fantastic on my nothing special tuckus, too. Lifts my bum and gives it some shape. LOVE everything about these. Considering ordering a second pair in black to wear to work. I actually ordered my regular size 8 (Im 5 ft 7 in and wear about 8-10 in pants) and these are a good fit. I think the length is perfect for me... above the ankle but not a short crop. The rise is a really decent medium rise, preventing any muffin top, but definitely not mom jeans... LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

    Best fit out there!
    I've searched high and low for jeans that fit my more athletic body both in the waist and legs. These pants are just right! No gapping at the waist, not too tight at he calves or quads. The only thing I have found- the crop and regular length seem to fit me a bit differently. I am generally a 4 or 6. In the AG Stevie a 28 is perfect, regular length Lily's the 28 is also perfect, but in the crop I chose to up to a 29. The 28 fit nice in the waist but the hips seamed a bit more snug? Either way, that's fine by me because the do feel like butter on- almost as nice as the sateen Stevie's but won't collect as much lint! My only complaint- Anthro please bring back more options in the regular length! Love love love

    Finally, the perfect pair of black pants that are neither jegging, nor legging, nor too-thick denim! These are soft, have a little give in the legs, hug all the right leg and butt curves, but don't look too-tight or tawdry (pleather, anyone?). Appropriate for any age, for sure. I'm 5'3", size 8 or 28, but got a 27—while I *do* size up in the AG Stevie colored denim, all of us at the store hands-down agreed it was necessary to SIZE DOWN in this pant, as it stretches differently from the AGs. One of our girls even went down two sizes for this pant. The stretch mainly occurs in the waist (which is great—no inadvertent muffin topping!), which is great, and lets you wear these a few times before getting the dread "elephant knee." Another perk is that the regular length hits right at the ankles for me. They look cute rolled up with booties, rolled down with flats, tucked into boots, or even with a favorite pair of Chucks. And the price for the quality and versatility is EPIC.

    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.

    Wow! There are no words for how much I love this piece. I own it it just about every color and would sleep in it if I could afford to own duplicates in every color. This top is so soft, drapes so beautifully and is very lengthening to the figure (something I enjoy given that I'm voluptuous and busty). All the colors are so scrumptious and go with everything, I mean everything -- leggings, skirts, whatever -- dress it up or dress it down. This top hangs just above the hips in front and longer in back so that it covers your but. I'm usually a Large or XL with Anthro and got the XL for length. The sleeves have ribbing and really add a nice touch to what otherwise might have been a simple top. JUST LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS ONE!!! PLEASE CARRY MORE ANTHRO. .

    Great Top
    I had been eyeing this online and tried the XS in a store on vacation in grey. I opted to order a different color since I have so many grey tops. I ordered the blue in the XS. I am normally a XS or Small in most things Anthro. It fits TTT. I had no problem with odors, nor does the tighter sleeves bother me. I just love this top. It's so easy to wear and falls so nicely on your body. Will definitely look to order more colors. Great top and got so many compliments.For reference 121 lbs, 5'6", 32D

    Highly recommend. Super comfy & fits well! Dress up or dress down. I have received many compliments. Wish I could say this about all my clothes~

    Drapes beautifully
    This is one of the best dresses I have bought in years. It is made of a substantial cotton knit with just enough stretch to make it fit in the right places and skim over the right places. I am 5'5", 122 lbs. and I bought the size small. I usually wear a size 6 and the small fits like I have described above. So happy to have found a flattering cotton knit dress with sleeves! It looks black and white in the picture, but is actually black and light tan, so will look fabulous with all my neutral sandals. It is about 2 inches longer on me than it is on the model which I like.

    Great dress! no problems! very happy
    Because of the first review, I want to offer my different experience. I am 5'2" and 102 lbs (for now). I ordered PXS. The dress fits me as it looks on the model, except that she is taller compared to the dress than I am. As the first reviewer said, the material is pleasantly substantial--not weightless like many polyester dresses--so the dress hangs nicely, as pictured. Especially perfect for summer travel : packable, classy, decorous.

    Flattering & comfy
    My local store didn't have a petite, so I ordered it online. I am 5'4", 130 lbs., and a 32DD. Typically, I wear a size 6 dress. I bought the PM and it fits like a glove and flatters my figure due to the direction of the stripes. This can be worn casually with a denim jacket or more dressed up with the right shoes and jewelry. I can already tell that it'l be my "go-to" Spring item.

    Don't let this one get away
    I had no intention of buying this dress at full price - but I shouldn't have tried it on. It fits really well! I like the unique styling on the top - how it covers your shoulders rather than just being a "tank-styled" top. The style of the top was a little different on all size S in my store - the center piece of the bodice was mainly navy with a small green spot or spots. It didn't bother me too much though. At 5'5", the regular length will require that I wear heels, which is unfortunate, but I think the P would be too short if it's "perfect" for one of the other reviewers, who is 5'3". The empire waist of this dress hides a few sins, without being frumpy and without looking like it's doing any hiding. There is a nice flow to the skirt. The lining only comes to my knees - which was a little distracting but not enough to dissuade me from purchasing the dress. The colors are very vibrant - and I think this dress looks way better in person than it does on the model (and how many times can you say that??). The fact that the dress is washable was a must in my book - hopefully it holds up in the gentle cycle.

    Flattering dress!
    Such a great dress- I had to try it on the day it arrived in store. Colors are very, very bright and fun. Fit is SO flattering and the wider sleeves are really nice- no bra strap slippage. Fabric is comfy and nice.The girls are definitely saying hello a bit with the deep v, but I don't think it is inappropriate. It is really long. I am 5'2", 36, 27, 36 and I generally take smalls or extra smalls. I can generally get away with just taking the XS home from the store, since I usually wear at least a little heel anyway, but I had to get petite this time. I ordered the XS petite and it fits perfectly!

    Super comfy and stunning style when on.
    I just bought this dress yesterday. Very comfortable, flattering and stunning style. I am 5'7" , 135 pounds, the medium was too big and I am alittle busty, 36C- but the small fit perfect and was perfect length for me. If you are considering buying, do it!

    I was looking for a dress for an upcoming wedding and needed something that would be conservative enough for church but would also go with boots for the reception (no heels on cobblestone floors). I picked out several Anthro dresses in the store, and grabbed this one to try on on a whim. After trying on about seven dresses, this is the one I went home with. It's got slightly thicker material, which is nice for unpredictable Texas early spring, and feels substantial but not heavy. It does run slightly large- I'm typically a medium pretty much everywhere I shop, but had to size down for this (for reference I'm 5'8" and about 150 lbs; the lady at the shop said this brand tends to run large). The colors are a little brighter than the picture shows, particularly the orange/pinkish blooms. It also has pockets- ones that are big enough to fit my hands all the way in. After I go to this wedding, I'll have a great dress for dressier work days and nights out when it's a little colder outside.

    As an Anthro employee, I am completely in love with this dress. I am always a size 0 in anthro dresses, so xs dresses are usually a bit roomy on me, and rarely work. However, this dress is perfect. The quality is excellent. The weight is a tad heavy, but not too heavy. I will be able to wear this well in to spring. I wore it for the first time yesterday, and honestly lost track of the amount of compliments I got.

    Beautiful dress
    Beautiful dress, nice material,unique design, and fits like a glove. It's a great length for wearing to work or for wearing on the weekend. I also want to give two thumbs up to Anthropologie's customer service, who promptly sent me a second dress when the first one got lost in delivery.

    Beautiful....on the right body
    I loved this dress in photos and on the hanger. I saw it online and was not disappointed when I found it in the store. I bought it in store as a possible dress to wear to my sister's summer casual "boho" style wedding. She also liked it. However it really did nothing for me once I had it on. I am 5'7" about 135lbs, got a size 6 (did not have a 4 to try, that may have worked, the 6 was not tight) and it made me look short and boxy. I read the other reviews about the tulle and was planning to remove it, but decided not to keep the dress. Even with the illusion of the tulle removed, I didn't like the way the bottom/skirt is gathered all the way around, it's still a bit poofy and kind of immature looking on me. I think the waist and top part are pretty in photos but again, were not flattering on my figure. If the top had looked pretty on me, I would have kept the dress but tried a petite size so it would fall at or just above the knee rather than just below (I think that made me look shorter and short legged). I think this dress would look best on someone with a small waist and long legs. The zippers are really hard, I needed help.

    Lovely dress
    This is a really lovely dress. I am impressed with the quality - it has several layers (including a crinoline) and feels well made. I saw this dress online and then went into the store to try it on, I'm glad that I went into the store as it wasn't exactly what I was expecting. It seems fancier in person and I plan to wear it to elope in. I usually wear an 8 or 10 in Anthro dresses and I took a 10 in this. I am 5'6 and it falls below my knee.

    Beautiful dress, size up
    This dress is absolutely gorgeous. The fabric is filmy and the detailing is fantastic. I'm very excited to wear it. Two things to keep in mind: 1) This dress runs small. I'm usually a 6/8, and the 8 fit snugly (in fairness, I do have large ribs). If you're between sizes, I'd recommend sizing up. 2) There's tulle in the skirt, which surprised me when I tried it on. I didn't find it to be too voluminous, but it's definitely a bit puffier than it looks on the model. 3) I'm 5'6, and I found the petite worked well. It hit right above my knees.
