    The perfect dress for some
    So I saw this online and KNEW I had to try this on. I normally wear a size 12, but it wasn't available so tried on the 10 which fit me like a glove. Now here's what you need to know. I'm very short waisted AND have long legs, so this dress hits me right at my waist. I know I have an slightly different body shape than the norm so again TRY THIS ON. Now here's the biggest con - the top is super fitted, so you will always need assistance to get the zipper up and down all the way. There's just zero give, which is why it can fit like a glove, but I even tried on a 14 and there was no way I was going to take a chance and possibly rip the dress. I have broad shoulders so I've worn dresses like this before, and honestly it's so rare to find one that fits and flatters like this that I'll take this small con over the fit. So for me this is definitely a keeper...but it won't fit everyone the way it fits me. Definitely try a size or two, and also note that the pattern is different for each dress.

    Lurv this dress. I'm 5'4" 32C-24-34. So I'm a bit on the scrawny side. I usually wear a 0 or 2 & I took a chance and ordered this in a 0 based on another reviewer with about the same body type. Personally I think it fits more like a 2 but that worked out great in my case. I have a shorter torso so this is perfect for me. I agree with the other reviewers who state that taller girls with a larger chest may have a funky fit. Plenty of room in the hips though! I say take a chance if you're thin & willowy!

    Unique Dress for Fall and Winter
    I love the hemline of this dress, it is something different and can be worn to work. I got the 8P, as I am 5'4" and the regular size 6 was a little overwhelming. Love the print!

    Cute Transitional Piece
    This is a great transitional piece for the changing weather. It's a light shirt dress that can easily be accessorized for the varying weather of the next following months. The colors are vibrant and I love the design. I found tried on the XXSP which fit true to size except through the chest where it puckered due to being too small (see photo). I would have tried the PXS, but unfortunately, Rockefeller Center had sold out. Also, this dress is very short in the petite size so I am waiting on the regular XS I ordered to arrive to see if it fixes both problems. Some cons: I really love the idea of this dress, but due to my straight waist and larger ribcage, I don't know if it is the most flattering piece for my body type. Also, the price point is a bit high for such a simple dress. Also, the belt is reminiscent of a sparkly cheap silver shoelace. Not a good look so another belt would be needed if you choose to accessorize with one. Though I do love the design, I don't know if I would pay full price for this one, but it is going fast in the stores and online, so I may be in the minority.

    Wonderful, comfy dress
    Because of the reviews regarding size I was a little timid about ordering online since it wasn't available in any of my nearby stores. On a leap of faith I ordered a "small". I received a petite small #normally my size, but again, reviews said it runs small#. It fits like a glove #I'm 5', 32DDD bust, short torso, small waist, long legs for my height#. It hits just above my knees and although I'm 55 years old I don't feel it's too short, and it plays down my bust, which I LOVE. Every time I wear it I get so many compliments. The material wasn't at all what I imagined #gauze#, but I love the actual material #jersey knit#. So comfortable!

    Sooo cute and cozy!
    I wouldn't have recognized this sweater from the picture, or even looked at it twice, because I don't think it's particularly flattering on the model, but when I saw it in the store in Petite sizing in the gray, I fell in love. The gray emphasizes the gorgeous cabling and it's sooo soft. It looks better a bit more fitted through the body so I'd say size down. I'm 5'1" and have a 32 DD chest and the PXS had plenty of room, even for a long sleeved tee underneath. I would have like to try the PXXS for comparison but they didn't have one and it may have emphasized the girls too much. It's a bit longer on me than on the model which I like with skinnies and the curved hem is flattering and lengthens the leg. I was irritated with myself for missing the sweater sale so I passed on this on Friday but couldn't get it out of my head so I snatched it up on Saturday. So glad I did. Love, love, LOVE!

    Absolutely love this sweater!!!
    When I saw this on the website I loved the look of it especially in the grey color, so I immediately ordered it. To my disappointment a few days later It was cancelled due to it being out of stock in my size. I loved the look so much that I decided to order it in the purple instead. I ordered an XSP. I'm 5'3 115 pounds & it fit perfect in the shoulder area & arm length but it fell kind of short. So I went to my local Anthropologie to exchange it for a larger size & to my surprise there was one left in the store & it happened to be the grey in a small. I tried it on & fell in love. It fit perfect & I absolutely love this color! It's so soft, cozy, & warm & it's so flattering on! It looks great with leggings & jeans. This is going to be my go to sweater all Winter long!

    Surprisingly flattering fit!
    This sweater is very flattering. I was concerned it was too big at first so I got a guy's opinion, my brother, and he thought it was pretty. I ended up going with the medium. I'm normally a medium but thought I would size down because of how roomy the sweater is and I usually do size down when a top is roomy. Although the small did fit, I thought the medium was more flattering. It just laid on my body better. The small kind of flared out and looked boxy.

    Perfect Sweater Dress
    There are so many things to love about this sweater dress. The pattern is bold, but it isn't loud or gaudy. And, it is so soft. The lace at the neckline is whimsical, and you can easily wear a black bra without the straps showing. What I like the most, though, is that the skirt is a-line rather than straight up and down. For my body type, straight up and down, this dress actually gives me a waist. FYI: broad shoulders/back, short waist, larger on the top than the bottom (10 on top, 4/6 on bottom), and short 5'2" - I purchased the M. I tried the L, but on my short frame it sort of hung in an unflattering way on my body. Since it is a sweater knit, the more fitted version is best. You can stretch the fabric a bit, to create the shape that you want. The black band falls directly on my short waist, so if you have a long waist it might be too short for you. The length is perfect for my short frame, falling just above my knee. I have already worn this dress twice. Both times, I wore it with black tights and booties. It really is very versitile, and so I will wear it on many occasions. You can easily pair it with a cardigan or a jacket, though it doesn't need it. Overall, this is a perfect sweater dress.

    gorgeous and cozy
    This is a sleek sweater dress. Nicely fitted with a black band around the waist for definition. Universally flattering cut. Great length that's perfect work, running errands or going out on the town. The fabric is cozy and not itchy. I saw women from age 25 to 50 trying this dress on.If you are worried about the lace top and wearing a bra, don't be. Just wear a black bra and you won't notice it at all. True to size but since it's a sweater material you may be able to size down. For reference, I am 108, 32-24.5-32 and I took the XXSP. Don't know why the photo came out sideways?

    This was on display as we walked into our local store and my husband said " you have to have that." Luckily, they had my size! I wore it to work the next day and got a ton of compliments, then wore it to a semi-casual event and got a ton more. I added a black belt and boots and didn't need any other accessories. Great purchase!

    Classic Anthropologie
    This top is so chic and absolutely stunning. The funnel top neckline is oh so flattering. From the photos I thought that the flower would be thicker and stand on top of the body of the sweater (if that makes sense) but it's flush with the rest of the material. This is classic Anthropologie and reminds me of why I shop there...a truly unique piece. It has me excited that the weather will be cold next week so I can wear it immediately. It's hard to tell the sleeve length from the model shot but they are bracelet length...longer than a 3/4 sleeve but shorter than a full length. And it's a bit of a bell sleeve...gets wider towards the end of the sleeve. I can't say how excited I am that this was included in the 20% off promo and I predict this sells out. For reference, I'm 5'5" 123lbs and a 34D and went with my normal XS. Get it while it's hot!

    Not for Broad Shoulders, but What a Unique Sweater
    So soft, so unique, and, yet, not so good for broad shoulders. The front pattern with the flower detail, somehow eloganted the top so you almost don't notice it. But when you turn to the back, the pattern without something to break it up, emphasizes a large back and broad shoulders. FYI: Broad shoulders/back, short waist, 36C - I tried on my usual size M, and it fit perfectly. I normally wear a 10 on top and a 4/6 on bottom. The fabric is very soft, but I just cannot get past the view from the back. I have a short waist, and the top fell just to my high hip. If you were longer in the waist or much taller, this top would probably be a bit cropped. For me, though, the sweater falls just as you see on the model in the photo. Too bad for me, but a wonderful top for those that can wear it.

    Chic Winter Sweater Will Become Your Favorite
    I bought this gem for myself while holiday shopping and I cannot get enough of it. I have received so many compliments. Very soft and good quality. The flower design is beautiful. I would size down though if you purchase this. I feel it runs a little big. Love it all the same.

    Embroidered Inspiration
    This blouse is lovely in person. The appealing design overall and quality of the embroidery are standouts.The navy bands are part of the 100% cotton print, not separate pieces; I wasn't sure with just viewing online. The designers are talented in their vision here: sizing, colors, textures. It is refreshing not to need a cami for modesty. I bought the medium and am a size 8 top (34F); the sleeves are bracelet length when arms down and 3/4 when I lift them.; in other words, a flattering, useful length. This could go anywhere, and you will feel well-dressed. The workmanship seems very skillful, a work of art.

    great details
    Love this top, usually not a fan of designs/patterns. True to size, comfortable and great detail on the bib. I've written a bad review for a previous shirt I purchased from anthro, but I love this top.

    Worth the wait!
    LOVE this top! Agree with other reviewers that this top is even more stunning in person. I was so bummed when I initially saw it sold out online and the online representative stated there would be no more (looks like plenty available now). So, thanks to the Soho review, I was able to order from them directly. I went with a M in the top although I purchased a few of this brand in S over the summer. I am broad shouldered and the S was just a tad tight in the back and in the arms. I didn't find the M too flowy- just right!

    Favorite Sweater
    I receive compliments on this sweater every time I wear it. I'm 5'8", slender and a D cup. I bought a small and it's perfect. I wear a white cami underneath and it works just fine. It's very soft and not too heavy for wearing it in the south.

    Beautiful sweater. I was drawn to plum color although you can't see the detail as well. You can rectify that with a thin tee or a camisole in a contrasting color. I don't need another neutral pullover sweater. I found it ran large, especially in the middle and sizing down definitely made it fit my pear shape a bit better. I do expect some stretch due to the knit, so depending on your desired fit, you may want to consider sizing down. I'm normally a M in sweaters. Like always. Knit is very soft and item seems well made. I like the split collar and look forward to pairing with cords or skinny jeans.

    Beautiful Sweater
    I bought this sweater in the plum color and it's gorgeous on. I'm normally a small, but I end up going up a size because I felt like the sleeves and length were a little too short on the small. The medium is a little bigger than I'd like at the bottom, but not so much that it's unflattering. I really love the detailing in this sweater and it's very cozy.
