    My Favorite Thing...
    I purchased this dress because the reviews were awesome and I was looking for a comfy dress that I could spice up or dress down. I am naturally a solid colors kinda gal but I'm trying to venture more into patterns and prints so I took a big leap with this dress and I am so pleased that after receiving it in the mail and trying is on right away, I jumped online to see what other dresses this designer has in stock. I will ABSOLUTELY live in this dress. It will be perfect for Winter, paired with a cute sweater or blazer. It will be ABSOLUTELY perfect for the transition to Spring and then the transition to Fall. I'm in love!! The fabric has a nice weight to it and the draping makes me feel like I have a super flat tummy (something I am self conscious about). I'm totally in love with this dress!!

    This dress is a winner
    All of the positive reviews of this dress are spot-on. I actually think this dress looks better on someone with curves. I have an hourglass figure and finding a maxi dress that fits is often impossible. This dress not only fits, it's totally flattering...the bodice firs great, the waist ruching hides an imperfect belly, and the skirt is --- I hope this makes sense-- full but in a fitted way--it's full but fits close to the body. The material is perfectly suited to the silhouette, and although I almost always wear dark colors, there's something beautiful and hip about these shades put together.

    This dress is a perfect 10. The material is soft and flattering - doesn't cling where it shouldn't, but hugs where it should. I often take a S in stretchy jersey dresses and anything with free hips but am a true 8/M, and M was the right size on this. As others have mentioned, the top is cut a little low, so take your true size rather than sizing down, even if you don't have a large chest. The waist is very flattering, too, and felt like a perfect fit. I'm 5'6" and the length is just right, down to the top of my feet. Glad to have scored this comfy yet lovely long-sleeved maxi on sale.

    A better-than-basic wardrobe staple
    I ordered this top in most of the colors it's available in. The dip-dyed red shirt is probably the most special/different out of the colors (it looks amazing against my pale skin/dark hair), but all of the colors are gorgeous. I ordered XL, my usual size in Anthro tops. I found these to fit tts--this drapes nicely over my figure , the v-neck flatters "the girls", and I appreciate the longer length. The ribbed arms makes this top look more special than a basic tee and makes it feel more substantial. I think I'll get a lot of mileage out of this top--I highly recommend you get as many colors of this top as you can.

    COMFORT This top feels good on. I ordered medium it's roomy so I could have used a small, but I like the feel, so I'll keep it.

    Perfect winter tee
    I bought this tee online in the light red (ombré) color and loved it so much that I went back for the lilac, moss, and orange. All the colors are the same as they appeared on my computer. I love that this tee is long and loose enough to wear with leggings without being sloppy. The sleeves are ribbed and the body is a slub knit with gives it a fun look. It has a 1" ribbed hem at the bottom that encourages the bottom to not flare out. I think that helps give the tee a bit of shape. IMO it runs a tad large. If you're between sizes I'd definitely size down.

    Drapes nicely and is flattering
    I purchased this top online with a 25% off sale. I received my shipment very quickly as usual with Anthro. I am 5'9, 137 lbs and I ordered my usual small in Anthro shirts and it fit perfectly. I ordered the dark green and found the fabric to be very thin, so I had to wear a dark cami underneath. No big deal. After one wear I noticed a hole just above the pocket seam. The fabric is very delicate. Took back to Anthro store in mall and they gladly exchanged for another one. So far no holes in this one, have worn and washed 2 times. It's very simple shirt with beautiful detailing around the neck line. Some might consider neckline a bit low, but it works for me and doesn't show too much. I am a 32DD. Considering buying another in the berry color but not entirely sold on paying the $48 price. Might wait for another sale. All in all a nice easy shirt that can be dressed up or down that would be flattering on just about any body shape as it's not tight around the middle.

    Amazing Top!
    This top is perfect in every way. It has a wonderful, flattering fit. Easy to layer and mix and match with all sorts of pieces in any wardrobe. It's also extremely comfortable. I was so excited when I got the package in the mail, unwrapped it, and felt the fabric. I put the shirt on immediately and I feel like I am being caressed by an angel. You will not be disappointed. I'm really tempted to buy one in every color while they are still on sale. I am so passionate about this shirt that I am writing a review. I never write reviews. Seriously. I am one happy customer right now.

    Favorite shirt
    I own this top in 3 colors. I love that i can dress it down or dress it up and it always makes me look amazing. Super flattering. My measurements at 39-29-40 and the medium fits me well. I was recently at cabin in Tahoe with a bunch of friends, and another woman there brought the top in 2 other colors. Definitely the perfect piece.

    Super Love It!
    Really love this dress and received so many compliments. I ordered a medium and it fit perfectly. It is not tight and I have room in the chest under arm area. I am 5'4 and 34DD chest. Yes, there is a slight annoyance to get it over your chest and torso as other reviewers have mentioned and maybe next years version will have a zipper. The pockets do open up on the sides and the inside lining shows which I think I might tact up the pocket openings since the skirt part is loose on me and falls beautifully, making me look slim ( 140 pounds), but the pockets opening on their own gives the illusion the skirt part is not fitting properly. The fabric to me is soft and stretchy, just not at the sewn in waistband, love the watercolored chevron print and the cut of the dress. It is not low in the front and this dress at full price plus promo is a pretty good deal since I can see wearing this for all 4 seasons. It is a the perfect comfortable, thow on and go dress.

    I really like this
    I am a 6 top and a 10 bottom - I purchased the Medium - it fits perfectly! The fabric is heavy duty...I won't get to wear it much here in Texas until the fall..but I bought it for a trip to Paris and it's perfect! It's very flattering if you have had a few of children - if you know what I mean! The waistband is high so it doesn't make your tummy pooch stick out...hypothetically, of course! It's lovely - I know I'll wear this for a long time!

    Cute retro dress
    I had run into anthro to do a return and this dress caught my eye. Purple stripey dress with pockets. Had a few minutes so grabbed it to try on. I am 5', 120 lbs, 34B. I usually wear a small, 4 or 4P. Since the neck is small, I tried to pull this over my head and felt stuck. I pulled it off to check for a zipper. Nope. No zipper. Even turned the dress inside out to make sure. It's very tight to get on and I had to shimmy it down over my chest. Once on it is snug in the torso but not uncomfortable. The belt gives a defined waistline. The length on me was about 2 inches below my knees which I would usually avoid since it makes me look even shorter except the bell shape of the skirt, V pattern and weight seem to lengthen the look of the leg. I had on tall boots and it completed the retro look. Then it was time to take it off. Another shimmy up and off it came. Dress was very flattering on, but getting in and out was a lot of work. Ended up not buying it. I don;t always like to work that had getting in and out of clothes.

    This is the perfect wardrobe staple. Soft, lightweight and a nice variation from your regular long sleeve tee. I am consistently a size Small but noticed that the shirt fits very close to the body, so I ordered up to a Medium and am very happy I did. I prefer my shirts a little looser, so it fits me as is shown on the blond model wearing the 'sand" color. An since I am tall - 5'9" and have a longer torso, the shirts hits me below the hip, so I don't feel as if I am showing skin if i stretch or reach.

    Personal Stylist Review
    This slim fitting tee runs true to size for an easier fit, while sizing down can provide a more body conscious fit if desired. The soft fabric and length through the body lend nicely to both tucking in (especially fun with skirts) and layering under sweaters. The scoop neckline is flattering and can be worn backwards for a slightly deeper neckline (hello, date night)! With the versatility factor and great color offering I’m buying two this season! -Christina Need more help?

    Love this shirt!
    I really love this shirt. It is super soft and stretchy so it is really comfortable. I wear a small-medium in shirts depending on whether it is tight or baggy. I tried the medium on in the store since it looked a little tight but it ended looking sloppy so I tried the small and it fit perfect. I think it looks better when it is on the tighter side. I am really happy with this purchase. I bought the grey with blue stripes and now am buying it in the green! I highly recommend this shirt!

    Feminine Feminine Feminine!
    I feel like a modern princess in this dress. It skims the floor when I walk and I feel like I am floating. The colors are tremendous (I have the black motif) and the sheer is just sexy enough while not being innappropriate. I am by no means slender, I am a true houreglass shape at 5'5", 38C, and fluctuate between a 10-12. I felt tall and slim in this dress. I got the size 12 after reading the reviews and am SO glad that I did. It nips in at the waist in a very flattering but SNUG way so if I had gotten the 10 I likely would not have been able to zip it up. The gap above the zipper is such a bad design flaw as others have stated, but with a belt it in not noticebale. I would highly recommend to anyone with any body type in any size. A winner!

    beautiful dress--but slip is useless
    I recently bought this dress on sale at my local store. It is beautiful and fits an hourglass figure perfectly. It is very difficult for my to find dresses that fit my bust and waist well, so I couldn't pass up this item. For reference, I am 5'8", about 150(?) lbs., and very hourglass-shaped (39-27-39). Depending on the brand and fabric, I wear a Medium or size 6-8 in Anthro clothing. I ended up buying a size 6 in this dress because the 8 was much too large in the waist and looked frumpy on me. On the first day I wore it, I noticed almost immediately that the slip is pretty useless if you are taller than 5'4". While the dress was a perfect length for me (I can wear with either flats or heels), I felt as though I were missing 4" of fabric in the length of the slip--almost embarrassingly so. Fortunately I have another black slip that will fit the bill. I can't say I'd recommend the item at full price, but buy this if you find it on sale!!

    Classy, gorgeous dress!
    Contrary to other reviews, the gap/slit above the side zipper doesn't bother me as much. My arms are down most of the time and the dark slip beneath it blends right in. I absolutely LOVE this dress! The fit up top is perfect, and the neckline exposes just the right amount of cleavage, making it perfect for a summer, walking-through-the-beach-town dress! I'm 5'4", 122lbs, 32C, and I grabbed a 0. The midsection of the dress, right below the waist hugs my body really nicely and it helps show off the pleated skirt. Overall, this is a wonderful, lovely dress that makes me feel airy and ethereal. Perfect for a breezy summer day!

    so beautiful
    I tried this on when it first came out. I really liked it but it seemed to warm in ca. for sleepwear. I also tried a large and wanted to try an XL. Soooo. It went on sale and I ordered the XL and I love this!!! I decided to wear it as a tunic top. My husband loves the lace. It is warm enough for CA. but not too hot for a sunny afternoon. I need to wear a cami as the lace is see through. Only down side is the weave in the front is quite delicate and I will have to be careful it does not snag. But all in all I love it and ordered the gray too. Oh and the cuffs in the ivory are striped too. I loved the raspberry too but felt since ca. is going to have spring soon, that the color was a bit wintery. Otherwise it would be a great get it now and save it until next winter....hmmmmmm

    Beautiful, very soft
    I love this top..with a couple of notes to add. The bottom does flare and is a bit of an awkward length. The small is definitely small related to the arm length and circumference at the forearm. So.. I would suggest staying with your normal size, not sizing down. I went with my smaller size - can wear SM or MED depending on the piece, and I am sending this back for a larger size. I would think if you are petite - around 5'2' or so.. you'd love the small size's length. I am 5'6 so I need something a bit longer.. otherwise it just looks awkward or would need to be altered, as others did. The quality is so good. This is such a beautiful, soft and welcoming piece. I know I will wear this for a very long time, happily :)

    Received my Medium top in today, absolutely love it! Fits a little bigger from waist down, upper shoulder area fits true to size for me. The quality is great also, very well made. Ordering another color right now! :)
