    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!

    the perfect comfy shirt
    I absolutely love this shirt. I will definitely be wearing it way too much this fall matched with leggings and boots.

    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 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.

    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.

    So in Love with this Dress!
    I have admired this dress both the green and yellow. Once it went on sale I could not decide on the color. I went with the green as I love butterflies and I found the Marled Hoodie Sweater to pair with it very well for cooler moments. The yellow is so beautiful too, but since it came in a blouse version and I purchased the blouse laready, the green dress version was the perfect one. It rums small in my opinion, I took a 6 and it fits very nicely, no gaps under the arms and just the right amount of flow of fabric around the body. I am 34 D, 5 '4 inches in height and 140 pounds and the length is perfect for flats, which I prefer. Once I put this dress on either the yellow or green it made me so happy. The kind of happy that you want to wear the item right away. Great buy on sale too!

    Gorgeous Dress
    I love this dress! I am a curvy girl and this dress is very flattering. I sized up slightly. I tend to run between a 12 and a 14 and I got the 14. I 'm glad I did. With the design of the tiers on the skirt part the tiny bit of extra flow made it drape very nicely. I would be a little concerned that the 12 may cut too tightly around the hips since the first tier down hits right at hip level. The material is fantastic! It is lush and fully lined. Even with the lighter color though it is definitely not at all see-through. The only down side is it's too long for me. I got the regular size so I could get the 14 and it touches the floor even in wedges. I am just under 5'5". I'm going to have to hem it, but it is a fantastic dress and I will definitely wear it a lot this summer.

    I have been searching forever for cute "maxi" dresses to take with me to Italy next month and just found it. I was in a store yesterday and stopped and thought that while it didn't look like much on the hanger, it was going to look cute on. I'm in love. Seriously. This dress is so light and fits perfect and hits right at the top of my feet so I can wear cute sandals. The fabric feels so airy and yet it's lightly lined, you can wear a raceback bra without showing, etc. I went online this morning and #a# I would have never looked at it or wanted it seeing this photo on the model as it's looks a weird length on her #b# ordered it in the yellow I love it so much. Do not wait, you need this dress. I wish it came in more colors #my wallet doesn't, but I do!#

    I love this-go Maeve!
    Another Maeve dress, this is cut almost exactly the same at the navy polka dot dress the designer produced this season. I would say it runs a tad smaller than the other dress and thus is a little more TTS. Another reason I would venture to call this true to size, is I don't feel that the lace would look as classic if the dress were too tight. The dress has wonderful stretch, so I think it would still be very comfortable, but I think it might pull the lace some and take away from the product. The lining is a great wine type color and the dress has pockets also lined with this fabric which I really love. Also, the lining helps the dress work as a transitional piece that doesn't look to "white" or "summery" for the winter. It also avoids looking too bridal. I'm 5'2" and 110 lbs and I went with the XS which hits right at my knees. I think the XSP would have worked, but I really loved the length of the regular size. Flattering, comfy, and well-made. As with anything lace, it is delicate so jewelry after putting it on. I find it worth the full price and I don't think it will make it to the sale rack.

    Lovely, a keeper
    Add me to the 5-star fans of this dress although I can tell that the lace might pill a bit if I'm not very careful. It fits true to size (small, 5'5", 128 pounds). I have a small waist and chest and the fit is perfect, and the neckline is not revealing. I thought it might be, and I'm fussy about such things, but it's fine. The skirt hits just above my knee so it's just as it looks on the model. I expected it to be a lot longer since she usually is several inches taller than I am, but again, it's fine. For a party dress, it's extremely comfortable and the pockets are a plus. I will wear it with bronze shoes and a lightweight rust stole that matches the lining. Very few dresses look this good and are as easy to wear, I've found. Buy this one if you possibly can!

    lovely fit!
    I wasn't sure about this dress when I saw it in person but I loved it in the picture so I thought I might as well try it on. It fits so well! No gaping at the bust area, no bumps or gathering in the back. I am 5'3" and the length was just about at my knee. It might have been better a little shorter but not enough that I am going to bother hemming it. The waist area fit really well and was very flattering as I sort of have a straight waist. This accentuated and flattered my waist. I was debating ordering the petite since you can't get petite sizing in the store but since this one was great, I am going to stick with it. I tried on about 6 other dresses and this was the best fit. I love how it sort of looks vintage/retro. I very good find! Just for reference, my measurements are approx 39" bust, 29.5" waist, 37" hips and I bought a small.

    Perfect dress
    I bought this dress for the office Christmas party and got so much compliments! Love the unique colors and puffy skirt! I can totally wear it for a garden party in the summer or even for a wedding. Very satisfying purchase :)

    Fun fit and flare party dress!
    This dress is very fun and vibrant in person. The pictures are slightly misleading because it is very flared and the cap sleeves pop up because the material is very thick. With that said, the dress is great for those who love the fit and flare look. The neckline is very flattering, it is very slimming in the waist and at 5'2" the length on the regular is perfect for me. I will say that the sleeves are constructed in a way that restricts mobility and I'm usually a size 4 in similar dressed by this designer but in this dress I sized up for a 6 and its snug in the chest and across the back. I would not recommend going up another size because the fabric is so thick that any extra fabric won't drape and it would be noticeable. My only other gripe is that its polyester. . . why Anthropologie can't you have more dress made out of silk, cotton and other natural fabrics?!
