    Mixed feelings
    This dress is super cute--I love the wallpaper-y floral design and the cute flounce peaking out, plus the terry material is incredibly comfy. However, I am debating whether to take it back, for two reasons: 1) it is VERY short on me (5'7), even with the flounce and 2) the waist hits very high, at least a full inch above my natural waist which looks weird and gives me a "little girlish" feeling. I am a teacher and I could never wear this to work without leggings or thick tights, but honestly I would feel uncomfortable wearing this bare-legged even for a casual event because it's so short. Overall, I think the dress was made for a much shorter person, which is odd because there is a petite option available as well. If there were a way to get this altered to extend the torso I would try that since I love the look so much, but unfortunately I think there's nothing to be done. On the other hand, a shorter (5'4-ish) friend of mine has been rocking the regular length, so it should work very well for shorter ladies! FD: I'm an employee of URBN, INc.

    Love it!
    This dress is like wearing your favorite sweatshirt, but looking oh so cute doing so. Has nice shape, not too fitted. Not sure it's the most flattering thing in my closet, but I feel great wearing it and it's adorable - so for me that puts it at the top of my favorite things to wear. I'm 5'3, 145, 36C, and the MP fits great.

    Like wearing pj's
    I actually sought this dress out after reading some of the reviews online. After reading that it ran large I wanted to try it on in store. The first store I went to had only 1 dress left in the whole store and it was a medium but overall I really liked and so I went to the next store that had only 2 dresses left and they just happened to be small and extra small which were the two sizes I was looking to try on. I ended up going with the small because the sleeves on the extra small were to tight on me to be comfortable. I am extremely happy with my purchase comfy and gorgeous and I myself didn't find it to short unlike some of the other reviews I read

    Great Color Combo!
    Purchased a medium, I am busty, given the larger size, the fit on my shoulders was good, and contoured smaller waist. Husband gives many compliments each time I wear this. He is used to new items of clothing on me, for something to catch his eye, says a lot. Length is perfect, draping neckline is not too much fabric. Colors are BEAUTIFUL! I am a fair complected, green eyed, blonde, it doesn't wash me out at all. Great casual top!

    Love it!
    I bought the grey one and I love it. The blue one was beautiful but the colors didn't look great on me. They were too bright for me. The grey looks great with jeans or a black skirt. You can dress it up or down. It's more of a sweater than a cotton shirt so that makes it dressier to me but I love that it can go with jeans too. I bought a medium and it fits perfectly. I'm 5'3", 129lbs and 34D. Great purchase!

    Beautiful top!
    The colors are very pretty on this top! It flows very well. The drape neckline is very flattering. The fabric is very soft. You'll love this one!

    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!!

    My favorite skirt!
    This skirt is sophisticated, sexy without being inappropriate and sleek. The slit hits about miniskirt length and if you get be right fit, it shouldn't gape open. Beautiful colors just like the photo. The fabric is comfortable and stretchy. This length makes me look taller and very slender. It can be deessed up or down and looks great with boots. I would say that it runs TTS to slightly small with the understanding that this is a form fitted skirt. I am debating going up a size but I would be happy in my regular size, too. Your regular size should give you a form fitted look (going outside the bounds of work appropriate unless you wear tights underneath). A size up should be a little more roomy if you aren't comfortable with the skirt being so form fitted, and the slit can be pinned for work. So I would choose sizing based on the look you are going for. For reference I'm in my usual size XXSP (24.5 waist, 32 hips)

    Beautiful and colorful wardrobe addition
    I recently purchased this skirt as it looks very unique and colorful (and on sale, it was a steal). Loved the colors even more when it arrived. The fabric is soft and stretchy, not too heavy and not too thin. Very comfortable and flattering, even on a smaller frame. I am 5' 4" and ~ 115 lbs and the small fits nicely, with a bit of extra room. I cannot wait to dress it up for work meetings with heels, or dress it down with boots and maybe a cute denim shirt.

    Simply Beautiful
    I have admired this skirt since it came out and when I saw it on sale today in the store, I had to try it! I'm 5' 8, an athletic 145, and wear a size 6, the small fit perfectly which surprised me after reading the reviews. I tried the medium but it didn't look as polished. This is definitely a skirt I'll wear time and again and across seasons. Great buy.

    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!

    Beautiful and unique
    I have this in both colours, and get compliments all the time. So happy with the quality of this sweater.

    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).

    Favorite shirt!
    This is really my favorite shirt. It is light weight and cute with layers added or just by itself. I love that it is longer, so it covers my backside when I wear with skinny jeans. I want one in every color!
  2. / Jan 16 2015
    Wow! There are no words for how much I love this piece. I own it it just about every color and would sleep in it if I could afford to own duplicates in every color. This top is so soft, drapes so beautifully and is very lengthening to the figure (something I enjoy given that I'm voluptuous and busty). All the colors are so scrumptious and go with everything, I mean everything -- leggings, skirts, whatever -- dress it up or dress it down. This top hangs just above the hips in front and longer in back so that it covers your but. I'm usually a Large or XL with Anthro and got the XL for length. The sleeves have ribbing and really add a nice touch to what otherwise might have been a simple top. JUST LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS ONE!!! PLEASE CARRY MORE ANTHRO. .

    Flattering Tunic
    I was looking for something to wear Thanksgiving that would be flattering and comfortable. This top hit the mark. It looks like nothing on the hanger, but the fabric was so soft that I had to try it. I tried it in black. The black color is a true, saturated black. The fit is extremely flattering, falling between a tunic and a poncho fit. The sleeves are fitted in the forearm and the shoulder falls to just above the elbow. The fabric flows so nicely that it makes excess curvage disappear. The length is perfect, falling to low hip or top of legs. The only reason I did not give this 5+ stars is that after I washed it, it pulls slightly to the left, making the middle front seam angle towards the left and the left side seam fall to the back. I hate it when t-shirts do this, much less a nicer top such as this. Still, it's such a beautiful and flattering top that I would but it again if it were not sold out. I would buy one in every color. I bought a size Medium (regular length.) Although I am 5 feet tall, I would still go with the regular sizing. It fits true to size. Dear Anthropologie, PLEASE bring this top back!

    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!
