    Sooooo soft, LOVE!
    i almost always take a Large in Anthro jackets and sweaters due to broad shoulders and long arms but the Medium fits me perfectly. It is great as long as I do not plan to layer over a bulky top due to the arm width. I can wear over long sleeves as long as they are lightweight. If you have an athletic build the sleeves might be a bit narrow but probably fine. The fabric is great quality and the knit arm fabric stretches very little but are not overly tight. Every fabric including the fringe used in this cardigan is soft and comfortable. When the wood stove insert is on in the living room I wear it in the family room as it is just like throwing a super soft blanket on. By the time I purchased it, frigid winter weather had set in and I have not worn it outside but it should be versatile going with a variety of outfits. I bought the green which is true to the color on my monitor and I had been looking for a cardigan in this color for months. It is almost a cross between a cardigan and fleece jacket. I highly recommend, especially if you have sensitive skin like me...I cannot have any wool content fabric touching my skin and this is softer than a regular cardigan. I am 5'8" and the length of the medium is perfect.

    Super soft and comfortable, like wearing a blanket. I end up wearing this jacket a lot around the house. It's a bit bulky to wear out under a winter coat but can imagine I'll get a lot of wear out of it in the Fall.

    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.

    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.

    Heartbreak for me but perfect for most
    This sweater is gorgeous. I have tried it on as many as 5 times in different stores and at different times since the Fall. I WANT it to work for me so badly, but for me what keeps me from buying it is: it's a LOT of sweater. It's perfect in every other way, but it's a lot of sweater for my small height and size. I tried XSP, XXSP and XS, depending upon what was available at the time. If they kept the same general shape but removed 6 inches from each side, and maybe 2 inches or so in length, this would have been mine. I'm 5'2" and thin: 32-24-32, and even the XXSP made me look like I was a sweater with some legs poking out the bottom and a head. This said, this sweater is going to work for almost everyone else. So I recommend it enthusiastically to all of you, and perhaps a little jealously. ;)

    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!

    I absolutely love this dress. I'm curvy and it fits great. Was not really expecting to be this excited about this dress, but when I put it on, I was so happy. It's soft and comfortable and the belt part is not as big as it looks in the image (which is a good thing to me). It can be dressed up or down. Definitely recommend this dress.

    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.

    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.

    Mixed Feelings But It's Lovely
    The combination of checks and romantic flowers drew my attention to this tee. I felt like I was wearing the equivalent to a wearable fantasy Makenzie-Childs creation. I'm a size XL and found that this tee had enough draping in the back not to call attention to my love handles. However, the fabric is pretty thin and slinky, so it did show my muffin top in the skirt I had on, which was a bit low rise. That said, if you are between sizes and want a more fitted look, I recommend sizing down. I paired the tee with Anthro's "Aneliya Cardigan" by Bordeaux. For me, as an XL, I found that the best look was not wearing by itself, but rather with that wonderful elongating cardigan. As I move I'll show enough of the white sides. I just didn't feel that with all that is going on that it slenderized me as I hoped when worn alone. You thinner ladies will rock this tee either way. I love the pairing though. The SA pointed out that while the top checks are black and white, the background color of the floral fabric is navy blue. It's so deep that I hadn't noticed, and it still looks great under a black cardigan. 'Very romantic yet contemporary top, as Anthro does so well.

    Beautiful, quirky mix of prints
    I normally wouldn't think to mix black and white checks with a floral print, but somehow, these two prints go really well together! I am a stocky petite with a 38b chest and broad shoulders. I ordered the size Large (the petite sizes were all sold out), and it fits true to size. The material is stretchy and could have been a little looser as it is snug around my midsection, but I love the prints so much that I am keeping it. I'll be wearing this top with colored skinny jeans and a waterfall cardigan. Get this top while you can!

    Really wanted this to work
    I don't really need any tees but fell in love with the unique pattern and the fantastically soft fabric this is made of. Unfortunately, I really needed something between a medium and a large. These days I carry my weight more heavily in my abdomen and am very self conscious about it. The medium fit fine in most ways, but it hung on my stomach. I ordered the large and was swimming in it. For reference, I am 5'3", 155 lbs., 36C. If it makes the sale rack, I'll buy the large and take it in. It really is a nice shirt to wear alone or under a blazer or a cardigan.

    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!!

    Great wardrobe staple
    Originally purchased this sweater in black and was so pleased with the style and fit I purchased a second in the turquoise. The turquoise is really more of a dark teal (true to photo). I found the sweater to fit true to size and have a flattering shape. It fits a bit loose, but is not sloppy or bulky. I've paired it with trousers for work and with jeans for a more casual look. The knit detail in the back adds a special twist and the material is very soft and comfortable. This sweater will be a wardrobe staple for me all winter!

    Beautiful Back Detail
    This sweater is so soft with a great back detail. Love how it hangs on the shoulders and has a pleat at the top of the back. I tried on a gray, size small--my usual size. This is a roomy sweater but it is meant to be slouchy. I tried on an XS, but the back didn't drape the same way. I think the length of the XS was shorter, so it changed the look. Am going back for the Small. I am 5' 9" tall and wear a 34C. I loved how the Small looked but I also have more height to carry it off, so my usual size worked for me.

    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!

    I bought this in XL and the fit is just as shown. It drapes the body with a nice tailoring, but it's not extremely loose or baggy. I purchased mine in Black, and I think it looks really classy and chic. The main body of this top is a very soft cotton knit. The lace inset at the top is not delicate. It's a THICK LACE. I would not say the lace scratches. But, you can definitely feel the seam connection between the lace and the cotton knit body of this top. This is apparent on the back of the shirt when you move your arms. But, overall, I would say this is NOT SCRATCHY at all. This top also is not see-through. If you are daring, you could wear this braless (in the Black color that is.) I'm thinking of buying the white also.

    Lovely and Lacey
    After looking at this top every time I was in the store I finally tried it on. As I usually do, I took in a small and a medium. Even tho I am a small person, 5' 3" and 120 pounds and a size 4, I find Anthro tops to be small. Mostly I buy mediums, altho I have the occasional small or XS in my closet I liked the fit of the M, as the S seemed snug in the chest and shoulders. When I told the associate I find most Anthro tops running small she seemed surprised and thought they run big, but after reading the reviews on this top I'm not alone in saying this runs small. Nicely made, altho the one I selected has lots of unfinished edge threads sticking up all around the neck, like feathers, but I'll use my sewing scissors to trim them off. Otherwise, it's a beautiful top, and the nude is more of a soft peachy pink.

    Stunning and unique!
    This top hits the Anthro 'sweet spot' - feminine without being saccharinely sweet. It's beautifully executed. I got the teal #called "slate"# and the color is lovely - rich dark turquoise. The lace is perfection - it holds its shape without being scratchy. And then the body of the shirt is really pretty too with its soft ribbing. Perfection all around!
