    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.

    Just okay
    The tee is fine, tts and nice shape, but the fabric is all cotton and that means a bit of sloppiness. Fabric is thin, but almost opaque (opaque in most colors, but the pale colors are just slightly translucent, not enough to require a cami, thank heavens). My color is called "sky," but it is not the paler sky color, it is cerulean, a more intense tone. Beautiful color. I have made the mistake too many times of buying a skirt or pants and not having anything I like to wear with it, so the range of colors offered is a big bonus. .The shirt was no bargain at full price, but on sale, I'm stocking up with a couple more colors.

    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.

    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! :)

    Want them all!!
    Loved these as soon as I saw them as I have been looking for the perfect army-ish green pants with the right fit. Relaxed fit is very flattering and the most comfortable non-legging pants I own. My build is on the athletic side so these have great room for my thighs. Want every color.

    Comfortable and casual
    This casual, soft, winter weight chino with a light nap are comfortable and fit nicely, not too tight. They run large and I sized down 2 sizes from my usual jean size. The tall size is very nice and with the cuffs rolled down reach the mid-ankle on an average "taller" woman. They do stretch out easily. The material is appropriate weight for a fall chino and definitely heavier weight than one would think of for a spring/summer chino. Anthropologie may want to consider carrying it in more colors, including tall sizes and a beige one year round.

    Great pant!
    Tried the 'regular' on in the store; then ordered the tall size on line. The fit is TTS. The pants are comfortable and fit nicely. They're not extra-long, so for you tall ladies out there (those with inseams >33"), you will not be able to roll up the hems unless your desire is a cropped length. I bought the green which is a light olive green. The "swatch" green color in the ad is not the color in person. Encourage you to purchase if you're looking for a nice fitting, good looking pair of casual pants.

    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!

    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.

    Great and Comfortable
    I love this dress. It is comfortable, yet feminine. I love the back material and how it swings. It is very forgiving and flattering.

    Cute and versatile. Sleeves may be narrow
    i ordered my usual Medium and it fit perfectly. Fabric has some give and dress is lined except sleeves...I am normally very sensitive to anything the least bit itchy and the sleeves did not bother me at all (the patterned fabric is the one that might be itchy). The fabric is not what I consider high quality but not poor either. The dress is cute on and I think will look nice with opaque tights and short black booties. Appropriate for ages from 18 to 50+ IMO...not too short and I am 5 ft 8 inches. It hit me about an inch and a half above the knees. Agree with other reviewers that the faux leather is a nice touch.. I live in tunics and will wear this similarly but with tights instead of leggings. I do not have large arms and these are snug but not uncomfortably so however if you have a more athletic build they may be too tight for comfort.

    Runs two sizes small and petite is too short
    This is an awesome skirt, though as others have noted it looks much better with a tucked in top (white, black, chambray, or burgundy) rather than a long sweater as in the model photo. In my opinion the skirt is at least two sizes too small. I am very tiny, sometimes 00P is too large for me, and always need petite sizes, yet I had to size up to a regular 0 in this skirt 1) in order to be able to breathe in the elastic waist and 2) to feel like the skirt approached a comfortable "mini skirt" length. The range of colors in the pattern make the skirt incredibly versatile, and I am glad I found one that fit.

    I am really loving this skirt! It is a great, vibrant pattern that stands out but does not overwhelm or look cheap. I ordered both a 6 and 8 based on previous reviewers saying it runs small. I am usually a 4 or 6 in skirts and dresses and the 6 fits but I can't decide if the 8 looks better on. It is a little longer but both kind of fluff out in the back above my rear, common for me with skirts like this, so I am thinking of sticking with my usual 6 since I hate sizing up if I don't have to and I like the look of the trimmer waist in the 6.

    Perfect holiday skirt
    While this is titled a mini skirt, it is just about the perfect length. I am 5'10" and the 14 comes to just above my knees. I sized up, as I often do with skirts, both for length and a bit more comfort. The waistband, while it lays flat in the front, is elastic in the back, which allows for easy fitting. Also, unlike many pencil skirts, this particular skirt has pleats on the front creating a slight bubble effect. Initially, I thought this may be unflattering, however, the positioning of the pleats, right below the waistband, creates a flattering hourglass shape. I would shy away from hiding the waistband with a bulky sweater and pair it with a tucked blouse. The pattern has a pretty shine, which will be perfect for dressing up for the holidays.
