    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.

    Fits as if it was tailored for me
    I was a little bit hesitant to try this dress on because of what some reviewers were saying about the wonky fit regarding the waist fitting like an empire waist and about the sleeves being tight. Not having an opportunity to get to my local Anthro, I ordered it in my usual 0; and as soon as it arrived, I tried it on. Slipping into the dress was easy, as the zipper goes all the way down to your lower back. I zipped it up as far up as I could and then got help zipping the rest of it up. The dress felt comfortable on. The sleeves fit nicely, not constricting in any way. The waist fit well, hitting perfectly at my waist. The chest area is quite fitted, but has good enough breathing room. The length comes down just barely covering my knees. For reference, I am 5 feet, 103#; 34-25-34.

    flattering flare
    This dress has a flattering flare if you are narrow in the rib, the dress hits more like an empire seam on me than at the true waits like it shows on the model. I wear it with a narrow jeweled belt and it accentuates the narrowest part of my body and minimizes my curvy thighs. with a pair of knee highs and black boots it has a stylish and modern sass. The fabric is soft and the pattern is more subtle on since it gives the skit movement with the fabric that flows all around as you walk.

    Beautifully designed dress
    I bought this dress for a wedding and I'm excited to wear it. I don't usually like pink but I love the colour! The embroidered flowers are very well done and offer the perfect amount of detail. The lightweight cotton is great for the summertime (especially the low back). I'm a 32C bra size and have a 26" waist. Size 0 was just a tiny bit tight so I got the dress in a 2. The chest area was the slightest bit roomy (and I was wearing a strapless bra with no padding). The waist fit well. I was worried the hemline length would be low on me, making the dress look slightly matronly but I was very pleased where it hit. It also has pockets! The one less savoury point would be one of the sets of straps in the back was loose and it looked a little strange. However, nothing a tiny alteration or well placed stitches can't fix. The colour is richer in person, which is great because the photo makes the dress look a bit washed out.

    Beautiful color!
    This dress is a beautiful color that is flattering on many skin tones. The cut is also very flattering, makes you look quite "cut." I am broad-shouldered and have a bit of a stomach. I ordered a 14 and thought it fit well, but was a little tight right at the zipper on the waist band. A 16 would have been too loose. I'm 5'9" and it was the exact length on me as on the model in the picture.

    Very pretty dress
    This dress is gorgeous. Beautiful color, flattering fit, lightweight material that makes it perfect for summer. I only have it 4 stars in design because of the fit on top-- I'm not super busty (36b) but I think that if you are any bigger in that region, the dress might not fit so well. If you look in the picture, you can see on the model how it's loose under the bust. I think the more "blessed" you are there, the more that area will loose or bulky and not look right. That's the only reason I chose another dress over this one. So if you are interested in the dress, I'd recommend trying it on at a store first, especially if you're busty.

    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!

    Cozy but arms are short
    First: I love this sweater. According to the size guide, I should have ordered a medium but my arms are long so I ordered a large. It fits PERFECTLY in the arms, and if I'd gotten a medium, I would have exchanged it for a large in the end because the arms on the large are *just* the perfect length. I won't be throwing this sweater in the wash at all. It will have to be a dry cleaning garment, which is fine with me. It's worth it. The sweater goes with EVERYTHING. It doesn't look as tailored on me as it does on the model in the online pics, but that's because I had to order up a size. I haven't taken it off since I received it a week ago, and though it has some pilling, it's nothing a sweater comb or sweater stone can't fix right away. Since I purchased the sweater on sale, I'm ECSTATIC about it. I am not sure I'd be able to pony up more than $100, but it is definitely worth that much. I have received endless compliments on it. I thought all the other reviews just couldn't be real. But they are. It's the perfect catch-all. It looks beautiful with everything and yesterday I wore with with brown boots in the day and black boots at night. So convenient!

    Perfect sweatercoat
    I've owned this sweatercoat for about 3 weeks now and have worn it at least 2-3 times each week. It's absolutely perfect and the neutral shades go with just about anything. Also, the fit is very flattering. I typically buy more bright prints, but I feel in love with this when I saw it online. The weight is perfect for Texas weather. I can see myself being able to wear this through most of the winter. For reference, I bought a MP because of my height (5'1''). If I would tried it on in the store I probably could have gotten away with the regular M. I almost think the sleeves are too short, but my husband has assured me they are the perfect length. I probably would have exchanged it for the regular length, but I didn't want to have to pay for the shipping. Overall I think this sweatercoat is a great investment. I see myself wearing it for many years to come!

    A Beautiful sweater but in no way a sweatercoat
    - This is gorgeous. But in NO way is it a sweater-coat. It is just too thin IMO to be classified as such. - I would order your usual size UNLESS you want to wear this over-sized OR you have very broad shoulders and larger arms, then, in both instances, size UP one size. - This is not lined and the material is on the thinner side. I have not had any belt "issues" as another reviewer has, but I can see where the belt could come loose, as the loops on the sweater are not very secure. - There are no buttons or slits on the cuffs, but the sleeves are still [relatively] easy to "tszuj" up. And the functional pockets and the collar's versatility to be worn a couple different ways are very nice touches. - This sweater IS going to pill, so have a sweater stone or sweater comb on hand for maintenance. - Again, it is an incredibly versatile sweater (with it's black, brown, and beige palette and patterns). It looks great with Ts, blouses, turtlenecks, and over dresses, too. It just isn't a coat in any sense of the word, so just set your expectations accordingly.

    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.
