    Sooooo soft, LOVE!
    i almost always take a Large in Anthro jackets and sweaters due to broad shoulders and long arms but the Medium fits me perfectly. It is great as long as I do not plan to layer over a bulky top due to the arm width. I can wear over long sleeves as long as they are lightweight. If you have an athletic build the sleeves might be a bit narrow but probably fine. The fabric is great quality and the knit arm fabric stretches very little but are not overly tight. Every fabric including the fringe used in this cardigan is soft and comfortable. When the wood stove insert is on in the living room I wear it in the family room as it is just like throwing a super soft blanket on. By the time I purchased it, frigid winter weather had set in and I have not worn it outside but it should be versatile going with a variety of outfits. I bought the green which is true to the color on my monitor and I had been looking for a cardigan in this color for months. It is almost a cross between a cardigan and fleece jacket. I highly recommend, especially if you have sensitive skin like me...I cannot have any wool content fabric touching my skin and this is softer than a regular cardigan. I am 5'8" and the length of the medium is perfect.

    Perfect perfect perfect!
    I absolutely love everything about this sweater. It's actually pretty lightweight, I'm not sure where people are getting the "bulk" from. It's super soft & reaches right below my hip, so I can wear it with leggings. The gray is gorgeous. I went on a limb & ordered online without seeing in store & paid shipping. But I'm so glad I did! If your size is remaining, I highly recommend it!

    A MUST HAVE!!!
    This sweater caught my eye in store and I couldn't stop thinking about it so I ordered it online. I would have definitely paid full price but was thrilled to see it went on sale! I loved it so much I ended up purchasing in two colors. It is so comfy and is a staple item that goes with anything. I have the green and cream and they are both gorgeous. I wasn't a huge fan of the gray stripes, otherwise I would have bought that one too! THis was true to size, and perhaps just a touch roomy. I ordered my usual size small. I am 5'4" 140 lbs with broad shoulders. The regular size fit me but if you are any shorter that 5'4" I would probably get the petite size.

    Classy, Casual Wardrobe Staple
    I would own this dress in all three colors if I could! It's fantastic. It has a sleek, sophisticated fit that you can dress up or down, and it's incredibly comfortable. It is VERY fitted in the waist, but my waist is the smallest part of me, so I like that and look for it. I'm a 33-23-35, 5'5" tall, and the XS fits very comfortably on me. I love that it shows my figure but is still work appropriate. It's true that the fabric seems like it would pick easily, but I've been lucky so far. No cuddling my cats in this one. It's a little pricey, but I loved it so much that I didn't want to wait and pray to the Sales Corner Gods for it to show up in their realm. It probably will eventually, but I didn't want to risk having it sell out in my size. Worth the price tag for something I can wear so many ways for at least 3 seasons of the year, and is so comfy. If you love A-line cut things and accentuating your waist, you need this dress.

    Perfect Fit
    I went to the store and tried on the dress in blue-- I saw the mauve color, but thought it may wash me out in the later winter months and I had no idea that green was an option. I was hesitant to try on the dress as it looked long (I am 5'3" and I tried it on in XXSP), but when I tried it on it looked perfect. It was stylish, but not too stylish. I could not justify spending $148.00 on the dress, so after much consideration I left without buying it. However, this fit and style was so perfect I could not stop thinking about it. I went online and discovered the moss color and I was sold. I bought the dress immediately. The blue is gorgeous, but with my coloring I am hoping that the moss will look even better. I plan to wear this to work and to Christmas parties with suede booties. The dress is fitted in the chest and arms area-- it is revealing in that sense. Otherwise, the waist down is very forgiving.

    Casual Comfort
    I don't find most midi dresses to be flattering, so I actually ordered this dress in petite sizing--and I'm glad I did. Now the skirt just touches the bottom of my knees, instead of cutting me off mid-calf and making me look short. The fabric is super stretchy and skims over all my curves. I love how I can dress it up or down depending on the situation, and when the dress went on sale I ended up buying all 3 original colors. A word of caution, however--after a few wears and washes, the fabric going from under the armpits down to the waistband, running down the sides of my torso, has gotten very thin. I suspect it's due to my larger chest size, which can pull on the fabric weave and has often been a problem when I shop for Anthro dresses, but I'm still disappointed. Busty ladies should approach this one with some caution.

    My Favorite Thing...
    I purchased this dress because the reviews were awesome and I was looking for a comfy dress that I could spice up or dress down. I am naturally a solid colors kinda gal but I'm trying to venture more into patterns and prints so I took a big leap with this dress and I am so pleased that after receiving it in the mail and trying is on right away, I jumped online to see what other dresses this designer has in stock. I will ABSOLUTELY live in this dress. It will be perfect for Winter, paired with a cute sweater or blazer. It will be ABSOLUTELY perfect for the transition to Spring and then the transition to Fall. I'm in love!! The fabric has a nice weight to it and the draping makes me feel like I have a super flat tummy (something I am self conscious about). I'm totally in love with this dress!!

    Slimming statement dress
    Sometimes loud patterns can give the effect of making the wearer appear larger, but that is not the case with this dress! It is form-fitting in the best way that it can be--longer sleeves hide arm fat, and the ruffled portion on the belly hides unsightly bumps. I'm not a huge girl, but at 5'9" and 185 lbs, I'm definitely not small either. This dress is GREAT for taller/bigger girls. It's also the first maxi dress I own that is actually long enough for me--it graces the tops of my feet, almost touching the floor. I am so very happy with this purchase and will attempt to pair it with a black fedora, similar to the model's ensemble. Thanks, Anthro!

    I didn't expect to love this piece! I ordered it because it was on sale and I've been looking for a long sleeve maxi. Although the patterns don't match up at the seams, the effect of this dress is actually much better in person. The cut and pattern make it quite flattering. The only thing that gives me a little pause is that it is MUCH lower cut on me than on the model. I'm relatively busty 34C, but the fit of small is more like an empire waist, which ends up revealing some cleavage. I'd hoped/expected that this would be work appropriate, but it is not for that reason. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase!

    Charming, comfortable and a great layering piece
    Ok, so I was *supposed* to be shopping for others for the holidays, but came across this piece at my local anthro and just fell in love. Not sure if it is showing online, but the cream/ black colorway of this tee shirt is broken up by the most lovely pale blue that is used to highlight the various birds that are scattered across the shirt --- blue birds, blue jays. It's just lovely. It is not low cut, it skims rather than clings to the body, is super soft., and I can put this with jeans and a cardi, or even with my more formal skirts and pants for work under a blazer and it will provide a whimsical touch to my otherwise corporate outfit. :-# I also saw the green #bunny# and mustard #dogs# pattern at my local antrho and think that I may have to get both when I return. All colors would work right through summer, and it's weight makes it seasonless. For reference, I am a straight Medium at Anthro #or size 8) and the Mediium fit perfectly.

    Love this shirt!
    Got this in the yellow dog and white forest animal prints. True to size/a little roomy. I usually wear a large or extra large in tops and both fit (got one in each because that's what was left at the sale price). Soft fabric, boat neck not so wide that it fall off your shoulders, long enough to tuck in or leave out- falls to hip. Haven't washed them yet, probably air dry based on the fabric. Would by in all prints if they still had!

    Cute and comfy
    Purchased the ivory color with woodland creature print; very glad I did. It will be a wardrobe staple going into spring. I'm 5'6", 130lbs, 36A. The shirt fits well, not too tight or too baggy.

    Great transitional sweater
    Love this sweater! Bought it on sale, and when it arrived the color and shape were just what I had hoped for. The only downside...the sweater was FILTHY. Clearly someone had purchased, worn it (it was saturated with rancid perfume and the neck was covered in makeup. no tags) and then returned it without conscience. I'm just really sorry that the Anthro team felt it was appropriate to send it out to a new home without cleaning it. That said, I followed the washing instructions and it's now clean and free of perfume. I gave it 4 starts because of the condition it arrived in. PS - I kind of hope the person who returned it in poor condition reads this review...and maybe feels a little remorse!

    Great, soft sweater!
    I got this sweater in peach and its SO soft! Very comfortable and worth the cost. Would definitely recommend.

    love it!!
    I love this sweater!! I got the blue - a gorgeous, deep color! (I also tried on the white in stores and also really liked it, although the vertical stitch in the neck is more noticeable in white - not necessarily bad, depending on what you're looking for). The cinch detail on the back as well as the high neckline are flattering. I got the medium, and it fit perfectly - it is slightly baggy/floppy, but that is the style. This sweater is cozy, beautiful, and can be dressed up or down for both holiday parties and chill nights at home. I recommend this product!!

    The perfect light faux-leather jacket
    I have been searching for a leather jacket for years. It is a very personal thing because I needed the jacket to be the right heaviness, texture, cut, color, fit, and also have the right flair I was looking for. This is it. I never anticipated buying a Vegan faux-leather jacket, but I am happy that I did. This jacket fits really well with the back having a stretchy texture band at the bottom that adjusts for a more fitted look while zipped. The inside of the jacket is lined in a soft and luxurious fabric that has a sheen to it when the sleeves are rolled up. In addition the detailing is perfect. It has slight and gradual peak-through holes in a textured pattern across the seams, allowing someone close to you to see your blouse through it. Plus did I mention the brown shade is the perfect creamy color in person? I strongly recommend! I got a small. I'm 5'7", 130 lbs, usually a size 4.

    Love this Jacket
    I originally got the brown online, but once I received it, I traded for the black (both were beautiful, I already have a burgundy leather coat and the brown was too close to that color). I live in this! It's so versatile and the inside is so soft. I throw it over almost any outfit.

    Absolutely perfect
    I can't give this jacket enough praise. The material feels so much like real leather, it's hard to imagine it's vegan. At the same time, the lining is incredibly soft, and will keep the coat nice and toasty in colder weather. The design is adorable - it looks excellent with both the sleeves rolled up and down, and it definitely looks better in person than on the model online. I'm a size 4-6, and I got the M, which gave just enough extra room for under layers without looking bulky. My only concern was the delicate threading along the opening - which is kind of hard to see in the picture - I thought it might tear or fray in the washer, so I'm going to hand wash just in case. However, it seems to be holding up fine so far. This is such a well-made, unique jacket - I can't stress this enough - so thank you, Anthro!

    Love, love, love!!!
    I can't believe how beautiful this sweater is!! I was in my local Anthro yesterday and took 9 or 10 things into the fitting room with me. This one was such an obvious keeper!!! It is one of the best purchases I've made at anthropologie. It is a fine knit sweater top, with embroidered lace sleeves. I absolutely love the look of long lace sleeves. The front looks like a simple crew neck top, but what makes it unique is the pleated back. I'll be honest... Had I just seen it online, I probably would've passed right over it. I really didn't think I could pull off the pleats. But in trying it on, I saw how nicely they lay, and I loved it!! I tried on my usual Medium, but sized down to a Small which fit better. I'm 5'8 and 150 lbs. This has a vintage, romantic feel to it. Yet it pairs nicely with skinny jeans and boots. I bought the Sand color, which is 1000 times more beautiful in person. I didn't hesitate to spend the $ at full price...it was worth every cent!

    Cute Top!
    As soon as this top showed up in my local Anthropologie, I tried it on. I liked it and bought it. The online picture had convinced me that I liked the lighter colored one better. However, in person, I liked the dark grey better. Another customer trying both of them on, also bought the dark grey. We agreed that it was richer looking and the lighter one made both of us look washed out. The other things that surprised me about this top when trying it on were: 1. The back lace flatters the bum because it gently cups just under the rear-end; 2. The front does not do much for the figure since it lies loosely; 3. The sleeves are very pretty;4. The colors in the dark grey top match better than they look online and; 5. Inspite of being an acrylic body and polyester lace back (I hate acrylic and polyester) this top IS comfortable to wear. This top runs TTS. I've been taking a size XS lately in Anthro sweaters - and I did also in this top. For reference I am; 119 lbs, 36-27-36, 5'4". The size XS fit me exactly like it did on the online model. Also, Warning; you cannot steam the lace in the back because you will steam out the pleats. However it is very easy to press the wrinkles out and the pleats in - using an iron on the SYNTHETIC setting (or you will melt the lace).
