    Great stylish, modern dress
    I ordered this dress in the blue zigzag motif. The fit and style are classic, and the fabric pattern and rectangular cap sleeves add a bit of modern twist. The top/body is fitted, and the skirt starts at the waist and is flowy and full, which makes for a very flattering fit. I can wear this dress now and easily into the fall with some booties and sweater. And even into the winter with some tights and tall boots. Very versatile. I ordered an XS and a S. I am 5'7" and about 123lbs. I usually wear a size 2 or a S, sometimes an XS. I am a 32D. Both sizes fit well. However, the S was slightly baggy and droopy in the armholes, so I went with the XS, which fits like it was made for me! The dress may be a bit shorter, it does come above the knee, but I did not feel it was too short in either sizes. I would say my torso and leg lengths are fairly proportionate.

    Just got this dress today and I'm over the moon! I'm 5'4, 125 lbs, 34C and have a 26 inch waist - I ordered a small and it fit perfectly! The bust puckers ever so slightly but it's nothing a few safety pins can't fix. I love how it falls and the length is perfect on me. Really happy I didn't go with a petite size.

    Classic dress with a twist or two
    I tried this dress on in August, loved it, but was reluctant to purchase it because of the price. I waited until the dress was on sale and I finally bought the it yesterday. The blue pattern is unusual but the colors are still understated and not overly bright. I also love the twists that make the dress unique. I am sure I will have plenty of use for this dress, especially during the warm weather months! Just for reference, I am 5 feet, 4 inches tall, and I weigh approximately 114 pounds. I bought the extra small, and it fits perfectly.

    Much nicer than expected
    Bought on the xtra 30% off sale and expected a thin fabric. This is a medium weight fabric that fits well...better quality than expected for the sale price. I usually wear a medium, occasionally a L in dresses at Anthro and the M fit me like a glove, if anything a teensy bit snug in the rib cage however the fabric has a little give and is comfortable. Perfect for cooler weather with a cardigan or colder with coat over a cardigan. If you carry a little extra weight around the midsection this dress will hide it, at least it did for me. My stats for reference are 36 A/B, 5' 10" with a normal torso length and legs on the long side and 143 lbs. The length was perfect...just a tad above the top of my knee. The dots are definitely gold but not gaudy. For the price it was a great value.

    Really pretty dress!
    I bought this dress during the extra 30% off sale and was pleasantly surprised by the quality and gold dots (not entirely clear in the photo). The fabric is sturdy and thick, so it's sure to keep you stylish and warm throughout the fall, winter, and into the spring. The dress runs slightly loose/large and has some stretch, so I would definitely recommend sizing down. I am usually a 0-2P in dresses at Anthropologie and the 0P felt a little loose. I think sizing down would have been a better fit, but it still looks great and is an awesome deal on sale! Highly recommended. The length, however, was just fine. Which is a big deal for me, since I'm 4'11 ;)

    Perfect Everything Dress!
    I ordered this dress on a whim, I liked the cut and I'm a sucker for polka dots - At first I ordered a large, I'm 5'9" with a 34DD bust and usually a solid size 10 -- the large was huge! But I returned it and the medium fits like a glove! It has great shape and is a fun piece that can be dressed down with sandals in the summer or boots and cardigan in winter, or you can throw on some heels and it would work great for a baby or bridal shower. Overall I'm extremely happy with this one, I can't wait to wear to a holiday party this weekend. Oh and the best feature -- pockets!

    Wonderfully unique
    I saw this cardi in the sale section at my local Antho. Wow! The knit looks amazing from the back. The only size left was a reg small in the natural color. I'm 5'2" 120Ibs. I think it runs a little small. The sleeve length was perfect although the actual sleeves were skin tight on me. It'll be ok with a cami underneath but I could fit anything with long sleeves under. The length on me was the same as the model; back just covered my behind; front was the same as the model pics. The think the grey pic was most accurate for me. I didn't have a lot of extra material to cover my front and recreate that flowy drapy look. Instead the front draped more to the sides #like the model in grey#. I don't have a big bust #34B#. It still looks ok. I would have preferred more knit at the front, but the rest of the cardi was stunning that I could overlook that.

    Sleep sweater
    I bought this to go with the lilac garden loungers to well, lounge around the house. I wear this with a white tank and I absolutely love it! They are perfect together. The sweater is warm and very, very pretty, especially from the back. I have the lilac color which is the color of a peony to me. Very nice.

    Beautiful Cardigan...
    ...but not quite what I expected. Based on the neutral colored photos, I expected the wool to be a bit stiffer. The open front drapes a little awkwardly on me - the grey photos are a better representation of how the cardigan actually falls on the body (mine at least). Based on the previous reviews, I wasn't sure about sizing; I am 5'8. 140lbs, 36D and I purchased a size medium. I am happy with the fit for the most part, but I do feel like the arms are a little short (afterward, I noticed both models push their sleeves up); still, I have rather long arms, so this might not be a problem for others. The positives: it is such a beautiful knitted sweater, and the fringe detailing is stunning. i also really like the neutral color - it allows the pattern in the back to really get noticed. Also, it's very comfortable, and I don't find it itchy at all. If you can get it on sale, I would recommend.

    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
    I have very large hips and a tummy so most dresses do not fit well on me. I tried this on today and it was so flattering. I usually do not like to show my legs because they are not my best asset but the dress is so flattering that it is worth it. Material is a bit on the thick side but not too bad. I would have loved another 1/2 inch of length but still it is not that bad. The way it cinches in the middle is also very helpful for people with bellies when they sit or stand. I weigh 165 and wear a size 10. The large was a good fit for me.

    Perfect fit
    I have a weirdly narrow waist and a....ahem...big butt. This dress hugs everything just right and is incredibly flattering. I am also rather short-waisted with very long legs. Somehow, this dress looks perfect. Yay!

    lovely tunic
    I was so excited for this pretty top to come in the mail. When I opened the package i was a bit surprised to see that the red color that was offered was more of a rusty red than a burgundy/purple - either way that didn't stop me from loving it! I wore it that night with some destroyed black skinnies & a bo-ho sweater + some booties. it's perfect for dressing up or down and very versatile. I can imagine the ivory being even more so, but I already have a top like that....but that might not stop me from getting that color too! 5'3, 110lbs, 34B, got an xs - top has a flowy/oversiezed fit.

    Delicate and Whimsical: Makes you feel pretty!
    I love this top (in the blue floral patten)! If I had only seen it online, I probably wouldn't have paid attention to it. But I first noticed it in the store. I was drawn to a folded stack of very soft looking, subdued, very light light fairy wings cloth. I picked up one of the pieces, shook it out, and realized it was a very dainty, airy top. I can't really describe how pretty this is, but even though it's polyester, it feels super soft. It's a high quality polyester and enjoys those special little touches that Anthro built its name on: sweet little pleated touches, both vertically (down the back) and horizontally (along the bottom hem), ruffled tissue hemline that is longer in the back and along the sides, a very delicate vertical striped/corded pattern/texture, and a sheer airiness that feels pretty and delicate. This is trapeze cut, but the proportions work really well for narrow frames in the petite size: closer cut around the chest, small armholes, and perfect placement on shoulders. It's roomy without feeling billowing or like there's too much fabric, and hangs really really well. This doesn't look like a maternity top, even though there's enough room to accommodate if you are expecting. For reference, I bought the XSP and I'm 31.5-22.5-33.5, 5'2, small bust. Recommended for all.

    It's a tunic so it's supposed to be flowy. I am 5'10" and I ordered a small. I keep an eye out for tunics to wear with leggings but this would honestly look great with jeans or pants as well. It's sheer but that doesn't bother me. Potentially ordering the cream/white as well as the red I already ordered.

    Comfortable, stretchy, longer IRL
    I tried on both a size 2 and 4 in the green. For reference, I'm 5-5.5", 134 lbs, 35 C - 28.5 - 36. While I could fit into the 2 comfortably, I didn't like the way it squeezed my 'girls together' or my waist area with a belt on, so I bought the size 4 #shown in my photos#. I have a boyish athletic body, not much of a waistline and narrow hips, however this dress creates a nice hourglass sillouhette, especially when paired with the belt shown in the model shot. At almost 6 feet I am definitely taller than average, yet this dress hit almost below my knees. I plan to have it hemmed up just above my knees. The dress has great stretch, but beware of the side zipper if you choose to size down- it created a buldge outside of my hip area near the zipper. Therefore, I say this dress is TTS despite it's liberal stretch. This will be a lovely dress for fall and winter, especially with tall brown boots and an infinity scarf. Sorry about the poor #dressing room# lighting in my photos....

    A pencil dress that works for curvy shapes
    I went into the store today to try this on - since I did not quite believe the shape would work on my body type. I am an hourglass figure, but bigger on the bottom. 40-32.5-44, I take a size 12 usually, sometimes a 14 in some of the brands at anthro. The size 12 was just right - no pulling, very flattering on my body. Could have even squeezed into a 10 if I wanted to look sexier (and wear spanx). So I'd recommend your smaller size if you are between sizes! The dress looked less dressy in person because there isn't the sheen to the fabric the photos imply - however it's a very soft but thick and sturdy woven jersey, making it very comfortable. I am going to wear this to a wedding then to teach in (I love outfits that can be dressed up or down). I took the green shade - I liked all but wished the rust one was more red like the photo (IRL it's a true orange). The grey floral is quite pretty if you're a pattern person! I'd recommend as a versatile dress ideal for those of us with hips/chests!

    So pretty!
    I can't get over how pretty and flattering this dress is! I ordered the gray floral motif in my normal size 2, and it fits like a glove. Mine seems to be a bit darker and less vivid than the picture, which makes the floral less overpowering, which I like. The quilting and bows at the shoulder make it very unique. Plus, it has pockets! It can easily be work to work with a sweater and flats, and dressed up with heels for dinner out. In the fall, it can be paired with tights, boots, and a coat, or sandals in the spring. So versatile! Would have been worth full price, but happy I snagged this beauty on sale.

    I love this skirt. It fits true to size and is just the right length. (I normally wear a M and bought a M). It is on the longer side of maxi skirts but works for me at 5'10. It's so versatile - it can be dressed up with nice shoes like the model, or super cute with a denim top and flip flops. I normally don't go for bright colors - but there's somehow a non-bright undertone despite the red and turquoise.

    Beautiful design, except for inner lining
    Love this skirt! It only looks right sitting above the hips. But I have large hips, and the colors accent my smaller waistline in an attractive way. The only drawback is that when I walk, the white inner lining shows through the slit on the side. It makes an otherwise great skirt look a bit cheaply made, but a perfect buy at the sale price.

    It's long, petite is perfect
    I loved this skirt when I saw it at store. The regular size is too long for me 5'2". I got petite XS. The length is perfect. The material is soft and thin.
