    Classy, Casual Wardrobe Staple
    I would own this dress in all three colors if I could! It's fantastic. It has a sleek, sophisticated fit that you can dress up or down, and it's incredibly comfortable. It is VERY fitted in the waist, but my waist is the smallest part of me, so I like that and look for it. I'm a 33-23-35, 5'5" tall, and the XS fits very comfortably on me. I love that it shows my figure but is still work appropriate. It's true that the fabric seems like it would pick easily, but I've been lucky so far. No cuddling my cats in this one. It's a little pricey, but I loved it so much that I didn't want to wait and pray to the Sales Corner Gods for it to show up in their realm. It probably will eventually, but I didn't want to risk having it sell out in my size. Worth the price tag for something I can wear so many ways for at least 3 seasons of the year, and is so comfy. If you love A-line cut things and accentuating your waist, you need this dress.

    Perfect Fit
    I went to the store and tried on the dress in blue-- I saw the mauve color, but thought it may wash me out in the later winter months and I had no idea that green was an option. I was hesitant to try on the dress as it looked long (I am 5'3" and I tried it on in XXSP), but when I tried it on it looked perfect. It was stylish, but not too stylish. I could not justify spending $148.00 on the dress, so after much consideration I left without buying it. However, this fit and style was so perfect I could not stop thinking about it. I went online and discovered the moss color and I was sold. I bought the dress immediately. The blue is gorgeous, but with my coloring I am hoping that the moss will look even better. I plan to wear this to work and to Christmas parties with suede booties. The dress is fitted in the chest and arms area-- it is revealing in that sense. Otherwise, the waist down is very forgiving.

    Casual Comfort
    I don't find most midi dresses to be flattering, so I actually ordered this dress in petite sizing--and I'm glad I did. Now the skirt just touches the bottom of my knees, instead of cutting me off mid-calf and making me look short. The fabric is super stretchy and skims over all my curves. I love how I can dress it up or down depending on the situation, and when the dress went on sale I ended up buying all 3 original colors. A word of caution, however--after a few wears and washes, the fabric going from under the armpits down to the waistband, running down the sides of my torso, has gotten very thin. I suspect it's due to my larger chest size, which can pull on the fabric weave and has often been a problem when I shop for Anthro dresses, but I'm still disappointed. Busty ladies should approach this one with some caution.

    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!!

    Slimming statement dress
    Sometimes loud patterns can give the effect of making the wearer appear larger, but that is not the case with this dress! It is form-fitting in the best way that it can be--longer sleeves hide arm fat, and the ruffled portion on the belly hides unsightly bumps. I'm not a huge girl, but at 5'9" and 185 lbs, I'm definitely not small either. This dress is GREAT for taller/bigger girls. It's also the first maxi dress I own that is actually long enough for me--it graces the tops of my feet, almost touching the floor. I am so very happy with this purchase and will attempt to pair it with a black fedora, similar to the model's ensemble. Thanks, Anthro!

    I didn't expect to love this piece! I ordered it because it was on sale and I've been looking for a long sleeve maxi. Although the patterns don't match up at the seams, the effect of this dress is actually much better in person. The cut and pattern make it quite flattering. The only thing that gives me a little pause is that it is MUCH lower cut on me than on the model. I'm relatively busty 34C, but the fit of small is more like an empire waist, which ends up revealing some cleavage. I'd hoped/expected that this would be work appropriate, but it is not for that reason. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase!

    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!!

    dress up, dress down
    I love this and am glad I went with a small instead of my typical medium. The ombre isn't too sharp and it was as good with jeans as it is a denim skirt of white shorts. I got it for the sale price of 30 which makes it appropriate - to much for full cost if not getting the ombre in my opinion.

    Really wonderful tee!
    I saw this in-store in the grey floral print and loved the colors, so I grabbed one to try on. Absolutely love it. Silky soft cotton, very flattering neckline and overall cut. I bought it in a Small (34D, 5'2", hourglass figure) but could have opted for an XS too I think as it seems to run a little big (I tend to size up as many Anthro tops of mine have shrunk even washed in cold water/line dried). I am definitely going to order more colors, it is such a flattering cut and so so comfortable. Really love the Pure + Good brand, keep it coming! :)

    Size varies by color,
    I originally bought this top in the grey floral. The store I was in only had an XS but I decided to try it just to get an idea of sizing. To my surprise, it fit very well. (I am usually a M in Anthropologie tops.) It's fitted but not tight and skims nicely over my tummy. I went back to try other solid colors, and found they ran MUCH smaller - I needed my usual M. The fabric is also different. The grey is much smoother and silkier and drapes better. I still bought a couple of solid colors as they are still nice.

    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!

    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!

    Pretty winter wardrobe update
    I was skeptical when I first opened this dress -- I don't normally buy dresses without defined waistlines because I'm curvy. This dress actually fit perfectly, though (I'm a pretty exact 8P, so I ordered a medium petite). The stripey front panel has a good drape to it, so it hangs nicely and doesn't over-accentuate my curvy bits. Also, although it doesn't have a waistline per se, it is gathered in the back so the dress nips in on the sides and doesn't make me look like I'm wearing a maternity frock or a shapeless bag. The fabric is pretty light, so for deep winter, it might be best to wear leggings (and I don't think the dress is too short on me). I was also a little surprised that the stripey wool-blend is a bit itchy. I hope that straightens out after a washing or two. Overall, I'm excited to wear the dress, because I think it's going to become a winter work staple for me. Just the kick in the pants that my winter wardrobe needed.

    So cute!!
    I absolutely love this dress! It is so cute. It can truly be worn as a dress because it is a decent length, or can easily be paired with leggings. Fits great! I'm in love!

    Bought this on sale in the blue/multi color XXSP. Fits wonderfully--5'2", 100 pounds. Very soft, and love the pockets and back! Very versatile, as well.

    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.
