    Great dress that takes you though weight changes.
    I saw this dress online and loved the colors and the cut immediately. However, a few things to take note: 1) in real life, the dress is more dark purple; it appears more red on my screen 2) the dress appears low cut online; in real life, it ended up even lower. Lots of cleavage. 3) the hems are unfinished 4) the elastic band ends right underneath the top of the rib cage (near the sternum) 5) it's incredibly lightweight. It's made of nylon, the material used for pantyhose 6) it's sheer, but has two dark layers so it shouldn't be see-through (an inner purple slip) I'm almost 7 months pregnant and gained almost 20 pounds. I was originally 105# and 5'1" and always grabbed 0p or xsp. I grabbed my usual, non-maternity size and it fits beautifully, with LOTS of room for the growing baby because of where the elastic begins. I'm positive it will take me through maternity; it has that much space down there. When convincing my husband, I joked that not only can I wear this after I lose the pregnancy weight, I can wear it for breastfeeding since it's that low cut. Easy food access for the baby, haha.

    Beautiful Maxi Dress
    The design of this dress is great, beautiful colors, airy and soft fabric. I'm petite. The dress doesn't overwhelm my body type even though there's lots of fabric below chest. It also hides stomach and flaws around waist area. The deep v neck balances the long length of the dress, looks very flattering. The color n fitting looks true to what's shown in the photos. I definitely recommend it.

    Great maxi/long dress
    This is my first maxi dress and I love it-great jewel colors that can be worn into fall with a cardigan. Its slightly darker than the online pic. Incredibly comfortable and airy even in the hot CA sun. I think its slimming and classier than some of the other maxi dresses out there. I am 5.6 1/2 127 lb and the xs fit best. I am usually a small in anthro dresses, but found the s was to low cut (it showed my bra). Xs is also a great length for my height, I can wear flats and its not close to dragging. Pricey-but made in the US and combined with my bday discount I am very happy with the purchase.

    Much nicer than expected
    Bought on the xtra 30% off sale and expected a thin fabric. This is a medium weight fabric that fits well...better quality than expected for the sale price. I usually wear a medium, occasionally a L in dresses at Anthro and the M fit me like a glove, if anything a teensy bit snug in the rib cage however the fabric has a little give and is comfortable. Perfect for cooler weather with a cardigan or colder with coat over a cardigan. If you carry a little extra weight around the midsection this dress will hide it, at least it did for me. My stats for reference are 36 A/B, 5' 10" with a normal torso length and legs on the long side and 143 lbs. The length was perfect...just a tad above the top of my knee. The dots are definitely gold but not gaudy. For the price it was a great value.

    Perfect Everything Dress!
    I ordered this dress on a whim, I liked the cut and I'm a sucker for polka dots - At first I ordered a large, I'm 5'9" with a 34DD bust and usually a solid size 10 -- the large was huge! But I returned it and the medium fits like a glove! It has great shape and is a fun piece that can be dressed down with sandals in the summer or boots and cardigan in winter, or you can throw on some heels and it would work great for a baby or bridal shower. Overall I'm extremely happy with this one, I can't wait to wear to a holiday party this weekend. Oh and the best feature -- pockets!

    beautiful but...
    There is so much right going for this dress that I feel bad saying anything negative about it. the weight of the material is perfect for winter, the lining super soft, the pockets are perfection and the color - both blue and gold polka dots - classy. My regular M fit me perfectly if not a little on the large side, but I'm not sure I would size down to the S since I have a large bust and the M fit that part of me perfectly. I definitely had room in the waist that if it was large in the bust too, the S would have fit better. So all in all, there's nothing wrong, per say, about this dress. I tried it on, loved the way it felt on me, but my fashion forward 16 year old daughter said it looked matronly on me. That word clinched it for me and I'm probably going to return it. But it's definitely a gorgeous dress - maybe the same style in a different pattern or silkier, more flowy material would make it less matronly?

    Wonderfully unique
    I saw this cardi in the sale section at my local Antho. Wow! The knit looks amazing from the back. The only size left was a reg small in the natural color. I'm 5'2" 120Ibs. I think it runs a little small. The sleeve length was perfect although the actual sleeves were skin tight on me. It'll be ok with a cami underneath but I could fit anything with long sleeves under. The length on me was the same as the model; back just covered my behind; front was the same as the model pics. The think the grey pic was most accurate for me. I didn't have a lot of extra material to cover my front and recreate that flowy drapy look. Instead the front draped more to the sides #like the model in grey#. I don't have a big bust #34B#. It still looks ok. I would have preferred more knit at the front, but the rest of the cardi was stunning that I could overlook that.

    Beautiful Cardigan...
    ...but not quite what I expected. Based on the neutral colored photos, I expected the wool to be a bit stiffer. The open front drapes a little awkwardly on me - the grey photos are a better representation of how the cardigan actually falls on the body (mine at least). Based on the previous reviews, I wasn't sure about sizing; I am 5'8. 140lbs, 36D and I purchased a size medium. I am happy with the fit for the most part, but I do feel like the arms are a little short (afterward, I noticed both models push their sleeves up); still, I have rather long arms, so this might not be a problem for others. The positives: it is such a beautiful knitted sweater, and the fringe detailing is stunning. i also really like the neutral color - it allows the pattern in the back to really get noticed. Also, it's very comfortable, and I don't find it itchy at all. If you can get it on sale, I would recommend.

    Versatile and memorable
    I felt the price was a steal for this beautiful and classic cardigan. It does have a vintage feel to it, and I love how I can pair it with pretty much anything in my closet. It is very unique as well with the texture and fringe. I bought the Lavender color. It's gorgeous. I am 5'3", 135 lbs and the medium was definitely the right choice for me. I love how it lays. The sweater is a little bit itchy. I wish it was just cotton, but it's not. I don't regret this purchase at all. I get compliments every time I wear it.

    Modern LBD!
    This is an epic dress. I feel like Joan Holloway from Mad Men in it :) I hesitated a long time over the full price and took advantage of the recent sale on dresses. It was still more than I would normally pay but so, so worth it. I usually buy Anthro clothes in 14/L. I sized up to an XL (as I do with other Bailey44 dresses) and it's still a very close fit. This dress is great for an hourglass figure. If I was pear shaped or self conscious about lower abdomen/thigh areas, I might skip this dress. (Let me add, I do plan on shapewear for a more streamlined look.) The material and cut make it very clingy and the dress is designed to come to a narrow point at the bottom, exaggerating the V shape from the waist down. I was kind of surprised by this, and if you need more material to balance your shape or less material due to height, be aware. I really appreciate that this is a modern version of a pin-up dress without showing any cleavage. It makes it so much more versatile to wear just about anywhere. A new favorite!

    Another stunning dress and winner from Bailey44.
    As soon as I saw this in store, I knew I had to have it! I am 5'2" and typically need petite sizing for some items, but I like the additional length for some dresses, and this was one of them. The Apogeo Column Dress fell to my knees. I purchased this in size S (regular) and in the moss color, which is a muted/slate dark green that is eye-catching. I am very tempted to get this dress in black as well, as it would make the perfect Little Black Dress. This is a stunner for many body types, as the jersey fabric is very forgiving, and the ruching in the body of the dress does a great job of showing off your curves but hiding anything you may not necessarily want to draw attention to. It is VERY fitted but the draping of the fabric was very well done. I especially like the knotted accent at the shoulder. I have a combination athletic/hourglass shape, and this is STUNNING on my body! It was an instant winner, like Bailey44's other contour/bodycon dresses. I also liked that there was a lining / second layer to this dress, which definitely helps with the shaping and flattering drape of this dress. My only criticisms are that I did not like the unfinished hems for this dress, but I have seen this with other Bailey44 dresses as well.

    Gorgeous and beautifully made
    I hesitated to try on such a form fitting dress but I couldn't resist just trying - the very dark teal green was too enticing. I tried the dress and was shocked to find it so flattering. Being proportioned a bit larger on the bottom, I thought that this dress would accentuate that but it was quite the opposite! Due to the details at the neckline and the width of the sleeves at the shoulders, the dress balanced out my proportions. The ruche detailing throughout the dress also was flattering and did not add lumps and bumps. t skimmed over everything. After purchasing/wearing, I had it cleaned and it came back looking just as beautiful as new. Most importantly - this dress is incredibly comfortable.

    Size Up for Large Bust
    Received this easy to wear gem in the mail today and while I am pleased with the dress overall, the size M was too small for my proportions. I'm writing this review to warm big chested ladies to size up. I'm a 36DDD and thought a size M would work because it usually does with most brands. However, Bailey runs small for me. When I tried it on tonight it *technically* fit, but I would be self conscious about my chest. Just wasn't doing me any favors. And the waist was slightly tight too - just a touch, so I thought it best to size up. I could keep the M and wear a sweater over it but I want the option of wearing this dress during the summer as well. That's part of the appeal; you can dress it up/down, wear it on a plane and look chic or throw it on after a dip in the pool. I think the L will allow it drape better too. Anyway, it's a great piece and I'm excited to wear it soon. Anthro, please stock this dress in more colors. Everyone has a black dress (boorrrring) and the gray is an excellent staple but a fun red, blue or green would be fantastic!

    Versatile, comfortable and flattering!
    What more is there to say about this awesome dress? So flattering, so comfortable, so versatile! The small was too tight in the waist and the bust for me, so I sized up to a medium, and it's perfect! A little long on my 5'5" frame so I'll probably get it hemmed.

    Perfectly designed
    I love, love, love this dress. I am so lucky to catch it with the dress sale. I am sure I will be wearing this dress for many years ... it is a classic with a modern twist. Ageless! The fabric feels luxe. I would like to thank the reviewer who said she successfully machine washed her's on the handwash cycle. It looks absolutely smashing with my moto jacket, yet it looks mighty fine with my cashmere shrug as well. I am 5' 3.5" the regular small just skims the floor on me. Because the hem is unfinished, it should be easy to hem. I don't think the petite would work for me as the regular small fits perfectly ... I suppose I could get away without hemming it, but I really don't want it to skim the floor. I purchased the dress in the charcoal grey. I pondering the black!

    Finally a flattering jumper!
    I can't tell you how many jumpers I've tried on that haven't worked on my frame. I'm 5'4", 130lb, Anthro size 4-6, 34C-D cup. I ordered the S & M to be safe and tried the M on first which I thought fit ok, and probably would have kept if I hadn't ordered the S. The S was just a tad more fitted but still loose and comfy..it fit the way it does in the models photo. It's flattering because of the pattern & overall fit. I was worried that the tie would draw attention to my small pooch but it actually looks great. I'll be wearing this all over Italy in Sept, as it's perfect for looking cute & feeling comfortable at the same time. I appreciated that there were no cut-outs in the back that made it feel too "junior", it feels like a sophisticated jumper if there is such a thing :) Worth every penny.

    comfy and funky
    I love this jumper! I've recently had a love/hate relationship with jumpers/rompers. Luckily, I found the Franca Jumper (in black/white). It's comfortable, casual, and funky. The drawstring belt helps tuck in and give definition. The fabric is very soft and the zipper isn't cheap. Definitely going to be worn in heavy rotation.

    Great Jumpsuit
    I agree with the reviewer who said the photo doesn't do the romper justice. I don't even like tribal or black and I bought the jumper anyway! It is so fun, stylish and comfortable. It looks great with some heels and accessories. I am a size 10-12 so I fall between a Medium and Large. The Medium fits perfectly. Anthro clothes tend to run a bit large anyway. It is easy to zip and take off. The length is just right for my height as well although I am smaller up top and have a longer torso.

    beautiful unique feminine utility jacket
    Beautiful jacket with interesting ruffle details. Well made. Heavier material for a military jacket makes it more versatile for colder weather. Fit is TTS to slightly narrow in the shoulders. If you have broad shoulders and wish to wear something thicker underneath, you might want to size up. I'm 32' bust and petite, and took the XSP. I have this in green (lovely color) and just ordered it in gray as well.

    Cute but busy
    This was on my had to have list. I got both a medium and a large since I wasn't sure about the fit. Medium: Fit everywhere perfectly, but snug in the arms. Large: Too big everywhere. After wearing the medium to work for the day, the arms gave, but so has the rest of the jacket. It is actually very comfy but there's just something about where the ruffles hit on the rear that make me have second thoughts about it. If there were no ruffles, the jacket would be perfect. I will probably try it with a different pair of pants to see if the ruffles just work differently with something else. But I am thinking it will probably need to go back, based on the unflattering accentuation of my behind and that the jacket has given up its shape overall after one gentle wear. If you are petite or want to accentuate your booty, this would be a great jacket! If you have booty, you might find the placement of the ruffles to be very unfortunate.

    I am SO glad I was able to find this jacket. The quality is amazing, and the ruffle detail gives it such a nice touch. I purchased a size Small (usually a small in Anthro) and it fit like a glove. I've gotten so many complements! And, at this price, it's pretty hard to pass up.
