    Gorgeous and versatile colors
    I have this dress in the "orange" version and absolutely love it. The colors of the dress are a bit different from the website photo - I would say the background color is more brownish (think "bright tan" if you were buying footwear) and the circles are a dark navy (so may work for you with navy or black depending on how picky you are about these things). So actually the colors are more versatile than you might think because most people will have some tan, navy, or black accessories and footwear that will work well with this dress. If you are layering over it, besides the colors mentioned above, any blue between a bright cobalt and a navy seems to work very well, and a darker gold color also looked great. My usual petite size at Anthropologie worked perfectly here. I do have a very straight up and down figure (very few curves anywhere, although I do have a fairly small waist) and it certainly suits that body type. I'm 5 ft 3 inches tall and the petite length on me is very similar to the model shot.

    Excellent quality - a steal at the sale price!
    Got this dress in the orange and on sale. I have to say, I have bought a few anthropologie items recently, and this by far surprised me the most. This feels like a high quality dress. I bought an 8P and it fits my body everywhere. My measurements are 34C/36B and I wear 30 waist jeans. The dress hit slightly above my knee, so it might be too short for the taller ladies. I was hoping that the orange would be a brighter orange as shown in the picture - it looks more brown than orange to me (it could be my lighting). Highly recommend! I wish they had more colours/patterns for this dress.

    Amazing dress
    I loved this dress from the start and had to get it. It fits really nicely i got it in the polka dolt version and it hits in all the right places. Highly recommend this!

    Stunning beauty!!
    I'd been eyeing this sweater online for a while, but the cream, which I really wanted, bounced out of stock many times and shipping is so expensive, I didn't place an order. Based on the catalog shot (of the blue variation), I wasn't sure this would be a good look on my figure, as I'm curvier on the bottom than on the top and it looks sort of short on that model, despite the description stating a length of 30". I took a trip to the store a week ago and saw a lone size S in the blue on the rack, and decided to try on, despite my usual size being M (I'm a solid 6/8 on top). It's perfect! Long, flattering, and just lovely. Plenty of room, M would definitely be too big. The blue color is a deep shade of sea blue and really brings out my eyes against my dark hair and fair skin. The knit is substantial, warm, and extremely cozy, yet the sweater drapes perfectly and has great movement. I love the cables and the button detail at the sides. Great touches. Happy with the blue! Might even watch for other colors if this ever reaches sale, though I doubt it will since it's so perfect.

    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!

    Rarely do I buy the same piece of clothing in several different colors, but this sweater is an exception. I bought the purple one first because the other colors were sold out. I fell in love the second I put it on. It is stunning, having everything one could want in a sweater! I received SO many compliments that I picked up the neutral, then the grey. The neutral has contrasting tabs on the buttons, which the purple does not, so it has a little more character. When I received the grey one I was convinced that the designer had out done itself! It is so lush, and has the most contrasting hues of grey running through it, along with contrasting tabs over the buttons. This will be my go to sweater for the rest of my life!

    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.

    Great on trend coat/cardi
    This hits all the on trend keys: fringe, blanket look, but it does it without the typical bulk. The back side solid panel is shaped so from the back does not make you look wide like many blanket coats do. I have this now in the tan and grey. If had the green in my size still left would have it too. Plan to where this as coat most of the time like that I can replace a hoodie with it for casual and can still where it with dress pants for work.

    I bought this in all three colors
    This is a wonderful sweater that I will keep for a very long time. I felt that it fit true to size and that the sleeves were just the right length. I love pairing this with skinny jeans or leggings and often just throw it on to get into carpool in the morning over my workout clothes. Probably one of my favorite purchases at Anthro and I was able to buy each one during one of the sales! Great job Sat/Sun!

    Size up if larger busted, grateful for petite size
    This dress is breathtaking, can't wait to wear it. I was lucky to have found it in a 4P using the "find in a store" feature on the webpage. It fits very well, a little tight in the bust, so I'm very glad I read the reviews to size up if larger busted because I barely fit in up top! I would wear it with the straps, which are nice. There is absolutely no room for a regular strapless bra but it still seems to hold 'em up well. I am usually a size 2, 120 lbs, 5'3 and 32DD. So glad I found the petite size because the bottom detail is beautiful and would hate to have to hem that at all. This dress is almost skimming the ground on me with 4 inch heels, and it is a petite! I'm actually contemplating buying wedges that are 4.5 inches to wear with it. Overall, it seems like a dress that I'll be able to wear for years to come and won't go out of style, not trendy but classy and beautiful. BTW, the brand is moulinette soeurs, not the designer listed on the website.

    Perfect for my statuesque daughter!
    This review reflects the experience of my 17 year old daughter. I agree with all the positive comments about this dress as well as the potential negatives--runs large, very long. My local Anthropologie had a size 8 on the one-off rack. My daughter saw it and wanted this for her prom dress. She is 5"10" , large busted, and proportional through the waist and hips. Her bust measure is 40" and by the size chart should have taken a size 12. The size 8 in the store was too big on her. She said that she kept having to pull up on the top. The top and waist had excess fabric and it was clearly too large. The kind SA ordered a size 6 for her. It arrived yesterday and the fit is excellent. She feels very secure (no pulling up; no need for the included straps) and the waist is very comfortable, not at all tight. The length is generous. She is 5'10" as I said and she will be able to wear a slight heel. The dress would certainly be too long for the average woman. The print is beautiful and she loves the flow of the fabric. She looks like a rain forest princess! Ah, to be young. So anyway, I fully advocate this dress if you are tall or willing to wear very high heels. Also, definitely size down, especially if you want to wear it without the straps.

    Perfect Dress
    After reading other reviews I was hesitant to order this dress. I thought it would be way too long, even in the petit size but it was such a pretty dress that I decided to order it anyways. I ordered a 2P and 4P. The 2P fit me perfectly and I could not be happier! I am 5’3”, 120 lbs and a 34C. The dress hits the floor on me which is perfect because I intend to wear it with a low wedge or a sandal. Order this dress, it is beautiful! You can dress it up or down depending on the look you are going for. I can’t wait to wear this dress on my upcoming vacation.

    Almost perfect transitional piece
    I saw this at Anthro and was drawn immediately to the beautiful and brilliant blue of this dress. The flowers elegantly signal the fading bloom of summer and the refreshing arrival of fall. In every way, from the weight of the fabric, the potential for layering, and yes to both heels or boots, this dress is spot on. The only criticism I have is the construction of the dress. I tried this on three times (two in size 0 and one in size 2) and each one had problem with the bust line not being sewn correctly. I finally settled on one of them but realized that one of the pockets was protruding more than the others. At this price, this should not be the case and I examined other sizes and could see that this was happening across the board. Needless to say, because I think it's an unusually beautiful dress, I decided to go with it and enjoy it. Hopefully, however, the label will take note and take measures to tighten quality. BTW, my figure is a stick and I like how this creates the illusion of curves.

    my dream dress!
    I LOVE this dress. The shape is beautiful and super flattering. The colors in the florals are beautiful. The sheen makes it just a little bit more special than my regular day dresses. Looks so cute paired with burgundy tights. The front neckline is modest but the small dip in the back makes it a little less stodgy. Thank you Anthro for beautiful pieces like these!

    Beautiful but runs large!
    I love this dress - beautiful pattern, very well made. It's a great winter floral and the fabric has the right weight for fall/winter. I did find it to be a full size too big though.... I'm usually a reliable 4, especially in this brand, and it was too loose on me. A shame because it arrived just in time for a party and I didn't have time to exchange.

    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!

    Great Dress for Late Summer into Fall
    After seeing this in the catalog, I immediately had to run out to my local store to try this on. It's such a soft dress and it was comfortable. I am usually a XS-P but since reviews were saying this ran short I tried on a small in the regular size. I don't like skin thighs short outfits and this was perfect. It hits 2" above my knee and at 42 I think that's appropriate. There's not a lot of extra fabric around the waste which keeps it from looking frumpy. This dress was worth every penny!

    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.

    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.

    VERY Flattering
    Love this dress - like most saturday/sunday items, it is incredibly comfortable. But I can easily see this for office worn with black tights and suede pumps. It hugs the curves - but not too much. It runs short. I am 5'2" and bought a regular small - it is about 2 inches above my knees. Only caution is that I am not sure about the fabric quality...several dresses at my local store had bad pulls/holes.
