    Another Puella winner
    I already have two Puella swing dresses; I might have a problem. But this top is cute, easy, comfy, bright-- perfect for spring. I love the navy/bright blue stripe. I love stripes and Puella pieces line up the pattern at the seams. I compared three sizes and I hope this helps you to make a decision: the XS and SP have the same amount of fabric in the body and same overall length, but the SP has shorter sleeves and looser armholes. I have narrow shoulders, and I preferred the fit of the SP b/c it game me more room to move. Also, I have somewhat long arms and the shorter SP sleeve length was still fine for me. The regular S had a few more inches of fabric in the body and maybe 1 inch longer in the overall length than the others; sleeve length was comparable to the XS, but the shoulders fit the same in the S and SP. The length of all 3 was just to the point where I *might* be able to wear them with leggings but probably not. I definitely recommend this top-- hurry before it disappears!

    Lovely, flattering, effortless
    I adore this top so much that I have to make a public plea: more colors, stripes and solids, please, please, please Puella! I would buy a chocolate brown, tan, or forest green without a thought to my bank account, and I think solids in grays, neutrals, or blacks would be lovely. I am 5'4", 120 lbs, 32A, and find that the XS is a flattering, body slimming fit. I have small breasts and a slight belly, and this is the ideal cut for it. It is just so easy to pull this on that I find myself planning outfits around my two in gray/white and neutral/black stripe to try and space them out. The swing tunic aspect is maternity-esque, but I find its ease and comfort charming, and I never, ever have to think about my belly. It's made of a very soft, stretchy material. I feel cozy, put together and elegant in this tee. All subsequent t-shirts shall be measured against this standard of simplicity and loveliness. Buy of the season. Many hearts to you, Puella! Am probably going to purchase the cream/gray stripe and black/white stripe before they are gone.

    The Platonic Ideal
    I've always loved the Stevie Ankles and over the years have built up quite a collection, probably at least a couple pair every year for the past five years. I love them dearly and they always fit well, but this pair absolutely blew me away. I am between a 27 and 28, but almost always go with a 28 to avoid the dreaded camel-toe. The 28s fit, but always a wee looser than I'd prefer. I got these in a 28 per usual and they fit perfectly! No camel toe, no muffin top, no sagging butt, no loose waist. The length is also great. I am 5'4 and got the regular. Perfect for fall to wear with flats and boots. They look a bit longer on me than on the model. They are extremely comfortable. Soft, supple, good quality denim that isn't too thin (like some of the brightly colored Stevies) and isn't too stiff. They look pristine but feel as if I've had them for 10+ years. A great pair to dress up or dress down. The color is perfect. A dark wash with some very flattering fading going on--similar to what you see in the picture but a bit darker in person. Get them, you won't regret it!

    another great Stevie jean from AG
    I have several pairs of AG jeans, they're my favorite brand. I have another pair of Stevies in size 26, but based on the reviews I tried both washes of this style in sizes 26 and 27. The lighter wash is stretchier and the denim feels lighter, so the 26 fit better. But the darker wash ran smaller and the denim was stiffer, so I needed the 27 in them. I'm petite, so the regular size was too long for me. Now that I know which size to get, I'll order the petite online. I did not find the waist to be too tight, and my waist is not small. The waist of the darker wash did run smaller thant the lighter wash. These are not super skinny in the legs, which I appreciate because I have larger legs. If you want more stretch and a more relaxed fit, go with the lighter wash. If you want a more traditional denim feel, go with the darker wash, though you may need to size up.

    Great Jeans for Petite Ladies
    These are awesome jeans and I'm so happy they come in petite sizes! The color is true to the color in the picture and even with the petite inseam, they are still truly "ankle" jeans (which is the look I wanted). The jeans fit great in the legs, but was slightly tight in the waist area - just a word of caution. Once I wore them for a day, however, they fit comfortably. I definitely recommended these jeans!

    Perfect summer dress!
    I cannot say how much I love this dress! I almost never buy anything at full price but when I tried this on in the store I had to have it. The material is very light and breezy. It is unlined but not see-through so no worries there. I love the ruffle on the sleeves and neckline as it covers the little bit of underarm pudginess I have. The dress looks a bit short on the model in the picture but it hit me lower on the thigh (I'm 5'4). This could easily be dressed up for a summer wedding or just worn casually with sandals. I got the navy color; it actually looks a bit on the purple side to me and it's lovely - the green is nice too. Either way you can't go wrong.

    Holy Cow. Just buy it.
    I had seen this dress online and realized it was carried in the purple color that I love so much. I went to a store to try it on since a lot of the previous reviewers had sized down, and tried on both my usual 4 and a 2. The dress fit in both sizes, but felt more like an empire waist in the 2 for me, so I took the 4 in the purple and will be going back for the green. This dress is so lovely, very flowy and has an elastic waist so you're not suffocating if you happen to size down. I am 5'3", 125lbs, and have huge hips, and this dress was SO flattering on me. It hit right around the knees. DO NOT HESITATE. You will absolutely love this dress.

    Boy do I love this!
    This dress runs TTS, maybe even generous, had a lovely flow and movement to the fabric and a breathable material. I am 5'2", got the regular length as opposed to petite and it hits above my knees. It has a high waist with elastic which makes it oh so comfortable and has a tie giving it a belt look. I got the blue which is brighter than a navy but not as shocking blue as a cobalt. I have a strappy heeled shoe which happens to be the exact color of the dress but a variety of colors would work. It is a beautiful little dress that is both stylish and comfortable. This is a perfect Spring and Summer dress. I simply love it.

    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.

    Perfect Everything Dress
    I was looking for a work dress that I could also wear to social events, but was practical enough for everyday. This one fit the bill perfectly. I generally wear a 4 or 6 in Anthro dresses, but often need petite. I am 5'1" with an athletic build and broad shoulders. I tried on the 6 in stores and loved the fit, but it was just too long (slightly below the knee). I ordered the 6 petite in the dot print and the proportions fit perfectly. The dress is classy and comfortable with high quality fabric and nice pockets. I will say that with the petite version, you can see the bottom of my bra strap below the open back because the straps cross higher up than they did on the regular version. This wasn't a deal breaker for me because I'll be wearing a cardigan over it for work anyway- the small back opening may be a little scandalous for my job. I've also noticed that the straps sort of creep in as you wear the dress throughout the day, which makes it poof out a little in the front. It doesn't seem to be noticeable to other people, but its worth noting. You do have to wear a racerback bra to hide straps in the front. Overall, I get tons of compliments on this dress and think it would be a flattering fit on a variety of body types.

    Quality, fit, and unique look
    The fabric on this dress is delicious, the rust color and midnight blue dots with cobalt stitching and matching cobalt slip with scalloped edges are divine. I am 5 feet tall 125 pounds and a P4 fit beautifully. I have worn it to multiple fall functions and have received compliments every time. Looks great with booties, wedges, heels, flats, boots! Have fun with it.

    Form Flattering, Absolutely Comfortable
    I'll be honest - this dress didn't catch my eye at all - but as I was checking out the one of a kind rack in my local store - I touched the material and I knew I needed to try this on. The material is so soft, stretchy and comfortable - it simple feels incredibly on. Fit: I am normally a 6/8. My inclination is to say this runs a bit large - as this is the 6 and it was a bit roomy on me. I think there may be a bit of wiggly room in the sizing of this dress because the material is so forgiving - so those in between sizes should definitely size down. I have a thick waist- and so I can easily end up looking like a big rectangle in a lot of dresses. This felt incredibly flattering on. I do think my figure might be helped by a belt. The only problem I could for see - is that ladies with a shorter torso - might find the cut of the top a bit too long - it was perfect on my longer torso. This dress has all the figure flattering fit of a much stiffer material and yet feels like you're wearing your favorite sweats. Absolutely a winner!

    Great quality!
    Like other reviewers have said, this dress really does run large!! I wear a 4 or 6 in dresses (5'7", 36-27-37 measurements, 34C) and the size 4 was fairly loose (not enough to deal with the hassle of exchange, but still). Definitely go down a size! The quality of this dress is extremely high; fully lined, beautiful fabric, etc. The dress skirt is actually three layers (the top one, a layer of that tulle/mesh stuff to add poof, and an under layer to minimize stratchiness of the tulle layer. The colors are a little different than I expected. It's fairly bright: the red would really be best characterized as a pink tone rather than true red, but I'm ok with that. I think I would have preferred if the colors were slightly more muted, but oh well. Fit-wise, it would look best on someone short/high-waisted. Even though this is me (my ribcage and my waist are both very narrow and my waist is extremely high), the dress's waist is high enough that it looks pretty weird without a belt. With a belt, however, the dress is gorgeous. It's also REALLY comfortable. Overall, high recommendations!

    The Perfect Dress
    My husband gave this dress to me for my birthday. I'm tall and curvy, and this dress fits like a dream. The waist hits at the perfect spot, the fabric is soft, and the crinoline gives it that touch of special. The pockets are great - if oddly placed toward the front. Overall, the cut is a very classic Tracy Reese vintage shape, but the pattern keeps it modern and young. I do recommend a belt. So far, I've paired several belt and necklace combinations with it - you can really tweak the dressiness level. Highly recommend. AND, the care tag says it's machine washable. I think I'll probably wash it with gentle detergent (like Eucalan) in a garment bag, since it's a bit fluffy to wash in a sink.

    Great dress that takes you though weight changes.
    I saw this dress online and loved the colors and the cut immediately. However, a few things to take note: 1) in real life, the dress is more dark purple; it appears more red on my screen 2) the dress appears low cut online; in real life, it ended up even lower. Lots of cleavage. 3) the hems are unfinished 4) the elastic band ends right underneath the top of the rib cage (near the sternum) 5) it's incredibly lightweight. It's made of nylon, the material used for pantyhose 6) it's sheer, but has two dark layers so it shouldn't be see-through (an inner purple slip) I'm almost 7 months pregnant and gained almost 20 pounds. I was originally 105# and 5'1" and always grabbed 0p or xsp. I grabbed my usual, non-maternity size and it fits beautifully, with LOTS of room for the growing baby because of where the elastic begins. I'm positive it will take me through maternity; it has that much space down there. When convincing my husband, I joked that not only can I wear this after I lose the pregnancy weight, I can wear it for breastfeeding since it's that low cut. Easy food access for the baby, haha.

    Beautiful Maxi Dress
    The design of this dress is great, beautiful colors, airy and soft fabric. I'm petite. The dress doesn't overwhelm my body type even though there's lots of fabric below chest. It also hides stomach and flaws around waist area. The deep v neck balances the long length of the dress, looks very flattering. The color n fitting looks true to what's shown in the photos. I definitely recommend it.

    Great maxi/long dress
    This is my first maxi dress and I love it-great jewel colors that can be worn into fall with a cardigan. Its slightly darker than the online pic. Incredibly comfortable and airy even in the hot CA sun. I think its slimming and classier than some of the other maxi dresses out there. I am 5.6 1/2 127 lb and the xs fit best. I am usually a small in anthro dresses, but found the s was to low cut (it showed my bra). Xs is also a great length for my height, I can wear flats and its not close to dragging. Pricey-but made in the US and combined with my bday discount I am very happy with the purchase.

    Vibrant color, well tailored to form
    The color is a beautiful glowing lemony yellow without looking too neon-like. The fabric feels luxurious and light. It's a bit tight across the chest. I am 5'4'', 110 pounds with 34C and ordered a 0p. the dress fits, but definitely on the snug side. That could be a reason why the shape of my chest look a bit bunched together in this dress.

    Beautiful occasion dress
    Another surprise stunner - looking for a dress for 2 rehearsal dinners - I am 5'2" 34C, 27in waist and tried on the 4 - perfect fit, my usual shift dress size. I am usually 0/2 in non-shift dresses. The fabric is substantial and lined. The pattern is beautiful and almost made my skin glow - the iridescence is stunning. Easy zip up the back without issues. No problems with neckline or armholes and all undergarments were covered. Hem hit me just above the knees as I am shorter than the model, which makes it perfect for me. Definitely recommend as a summer occasion dress!

    I was super excited to snag this on sale for a few special occasions (shower and cocktail party). The colors are beautiful (love the light blue blended into the yellow, though it is difficult to see in the online picture). I was concerned that it would be too fitted because I just had a baby, but it is quite flattering even in the waistline. I normally wear a 4 and found that the 4 was perfect in this, even a little looser than some of my other dresses. Nice weight fabric and quality embroidery. This is a steal at the sale price!!
