    I absolutely love this dress. I'm curvy and it fits great. Was not really expecting to be this excited about this dress, but when I put it on, I was so happy. It's soft and comfortable and the belt part is not as big as it looks in the image (which is a good thing to me). It can be dressed up or down. Definitely recommend this dress.

    Perfect summer dress.
    I purchased this last week and have wanted to wear it everyday since! The fabric is medium weight, but airy, and it never seems to wrinkle! It fits on the loose side which makes it comfy and easy to throw on. I am 5'4" 125lbs, 32DD/DDD and the small is a little loose on me (but I decided that I prefer that fit.) I also love that the length works for my 5'4" size because some anthro dresses are too long for me. It fits a few inches above my knees (may be on the short side for taller ladies). I don't purchase a lot of full priced items but this one was 100% worth it! It is perfect for any occasion.

    Cozy & Cute, Great for All Occassions
    Very happy with my purchase: This dress is as pictured, it fits a bit large but is very flatteringlly so. Honestly, there is a bit of a pooch on the belly, but it drapes nicely and adds to the flattering cut so its no issue. The material is a heavy jersey knit style, like a cross between a sweater and tee dress. I wasn't 100% sure about how roomy it was but decided to keep it and I'm glad I did. I received several compliments on my first day wearing it.

    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.

    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.

    Love this top!
    I bought the gold top with the dog print. It's so comfortable and looks cute with or without a sweater or jacket and every type of pants I've worn it with! I normally wear a small at Anthropologie so I ordered a small in this top. I thought it was a little big, but it still looks cute and I kept it. Now that they are on sale, I'm planning to order the other colors and will likely get them in an extra small.

    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!!

    Great wardrobe staple
    Originally purchased this sweater in black and was so pleased with the style and fit I purchased a second in the turquoise. The turquoise is really more of a dark teal (true to photo). I found the sweater to fit true to size and have a flattering shape. It fits a bit loose, but is not sloppy or bulky. I've paired it with trousers for work and with jeans for a more casual look. The knit detail in the back adds a special twist and the material is very soft and comfortable. This sweater will be a wardrobe staple for me all winter!

    Beautiful Back Detail
    This sweater is so soft with a great back detail. Love how it hangs on the shoulders and has a pleat at the top of the back. I tried on a gray, size small--my usual size. This is a roomy sweater but it is meant to be slouchy. I tried on an XS, but the back didn't drape the same way. I think the length of the XS was shorter, so it changed the look. Am going back for the Small. I am 5' 9" tall and wear a 34C. I loved how the Small looked but I also have more height to carry it off, so my usual size worked for me.

    Rich Winter Warmth
    I adore Anthro's selection of sweater dresses this season. Here is yet another winner. My usual XXSP runs TTS and fits my 5'0" frame exactly as pictured. The turquoise color is a lovely, rich, quintessentially Fall "mallard" blue-green. The dress gently conforms to the body while leaving room for layers and secures with a quality zipper and hook-and-eye closure in back. The raised seaming down the center and around the patch pockets lends character to an otherwise simple silhouette. The boiled wool is substantial yet light, though unfortunately unlined and more itchy than I'd prefer... I do fear this dress might stretch out, as boiled wool can do when it isn't anchored by a layer of lining. Even so, I believe this dress is worth the price. It's versatile and classic. Mine will remain a cool-weather staple for years to come, and the outfit possibilities will make it new again each time I wear it.

    Fabulous-can work easily from day to night!
    Really nice shape, slightly fitted shift skims in all the right places. Great fabric- good quality boiled wool. Need a cardi or light jacket or an underneath layer for winter of course. I love, love love the turquoise color, may come back for another in red.

    The Color!
    I purchased the red online and I'm so happy I did, absolutely love the color. The material doesn't feel like boiled wool at all, because it is so lightweight and stretchy like a sweater. The cut is very forgiving and falls above the knee and not too short which is nice. Very cute with tights and a long sleeve top underneath. I may go back for the blue one! Note the hem is cut higher in front and lower in the back which isn't obvious in the model photo but much more visible in person. Love love that this dress has pockets! (for reference I am 5'6", 135) the size S fits perfect! This will be a favorite for years to come. Great find!

    Cute Dress!
    I tried this on in a regular size zero, which was quite my mistake, as I am usually a regular size 4 and thought I had grabbed that size. I'd say this runs big, as I was able to zip up the size zero without an issues, though I would probably size up to purchase. For reference, I am 5'1' and 118 lbs and usually a 4P or SP. The dress fell a couple of inches above my knees, which I thought was flattering. The shoulders fell a little off the shoulder for me- sleeves like this sometimes drive me crazy as I keep wanting to pull them up to cover my shoulders. The top portion of the dress has a leotard look to it, which I like. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is a bit short-waisted. I thought the overall look was flattering, as the skirt has a bit of an A-line shape to it. The fabric is soft and has a good weight to it. Overall, I definitely think it is worth the price tag.

    great fall dress
    i bought the two summer versions of this dress and i loved them, but the scoop neck is a little low and occasionally my bra shows. i bought this dress because everything else was great about the others. and this one is close to perfect. the ballet scoop neck line looks so elegant, and not too low. the skirt hits at the smallest part of my waist and falls nicely….not to straight, not to flowly. hits above the knee on me (5'5), in the same place it hits the model. and the skirt has all of the lovely deep colors pictured. i also enjoy the stretch fabric. again, not too heavy but not too flowy. i am smaller on top, larger on bottom. 34A, 27 waist, 37 hips, 5'5, 127 lbs. 0 fits me perfectly…. the arms are slightly tight when i put them on, but the fabric stretches and is comfortable. my only complaint is that i cannot buy another in a different pattern.

    This dress was surprised me in a wonderful way right out of the package. The fabric is a little thicker than I expected, which is wonderful for fall, and feels high quality. The top of slightly more dark gray than the black it appears to be online. If you have broad shoulders or a large chest - size up! I normally wear a 6 in dresses, but thanks to other reviews I ordered an 8 and it fits perfectly (I am a 36 C with broad shoulders, if that helps anyone). The wait does come up very high, which is fine for me, because I have a smaller torso, but I can see how that might be an issue for others. Otherwise this is a gorgeous, flattering dress! :)

    Pretty winter wardrobe update
    I was skeptical when I first opened this dress -- I don't normally buy dresses without defined waistlines because I'm curvy. This dress actually fit perfectly, though (I'm a pretty exact 8P, so I ordered a medium petite). The stripey front panel has a good drape to it, so it hangs nicely and doesn't over-accentuate my curvy bits. Also, although it doesn't have a waistline per se, it is gathered in the back so the dress nips in on the sides and doesn't make me look like I'm wearing a maternity frock or a shapeless bag. The fabric is pretty light, so for deep winter, it might be best to wear leggings (and I don't think the dress is too short on me). I was also a little surprised that the stripey wool-blend is a bit itchy. I hope that straightens out after a washing or two. Overall, I'm excited to wear the dress, because I think it's going to become a winter work staple for me. Just the kick in the pants that my winter wardrobe needed.

    Great and Comfortable
    I love this dress. It is comfortable, yet feminine. I love the back material and how it swings. It is very forgiving and flattering.

    Cute and versatile. Sleeves may be narrow
    i ordered my usual Medium and it fit perfectly. Fabric has some give and dress is lined except sleeves...I am normally very sensitive to anything the least bit itchy and the sleeves did not bother me at all (the patterned fabric is the one that might be itchy). The fabric is not what I consider high quality but not poor either. The dress is cute on and I think will look nice with opaque tights and short black booties. Appropriate for ages from 18 to 50+ IMO...not too short and I am 5 ft 8 inches. It hit me about an inch and a half above the knees. Agree with other reviewers that the faux leather is a nice touch.. I live in tunics and will wear this similarly but with tights instead of leggings. I do not have large arms and these are snug but not uncomfortably so however if you have a more athletic build they may be too tight for comfort.

    Runs two sizes small and petite is too short
    This is an awesome skirt, though as others have noted it looks much better with a tucked in top (white, black, chambray, or burgundy) rather than a long sweater as in the model photo. In my opinion the skirt is at least two sizes too small. I am very tiny, sometimes 00P is too large for me, and always need petite sizes, yet I had to size up to a regular 0 in this skirt 1) in order to be able to breathe in the elastic waist and 2) to feel like the skirt approached a comfortable "mini skirt" length. The range of colors in the pattern make the skirt incredibly versatile, and I am glad I found one that fit.

    I am really loving this skirt! It is a great, vibrant pattern that stands out but does not overwhelm or look cheap. I ordered both a 6 and 8 based on previous reviewers saying it runs small. I am usually a 4 or 6 in skirts and dresses and the 6 fits but I can't decide if the 8 looks better on. It is a little longer but both kind of fluff out in the back above my rear, common for me with skirts like this, so I am thinking of sticking with my usual 6 since I hate sizing up if I don't have to and I like the look of the trimmer waist in the 6.

    Perfect holiday skirt
    While this is titled a mini skirt, it is just about the perfect length. I am 5'10" and the 14 comes to just above my knees. I sized up, as I often do with skirts, both for length and a bit more comfort. The waistband, while it lays flat in the front, is elastic in the back, which allows for easy fitting. Also, unlike many pencil skirts, this particular skirt has pleats on the front creating a slight bubble effect. Initially, I thought this may be unflattering, however, the positioning of the pleats, right below the waistband, creates a flattering hourglass shape. I would shy away from hiding the waistband with a bulky sweater and pair it with a tucked blouse. The pattern has a pretty shine, which will be perfect for dressing up for the holidays.
