Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by gorgeous! This dress is absolutely awesome! The quality and details make this dress worth every penny. The pictures do this dress no justice. It is so flattering when you put it on - the sweetheart neckline flatters your bust without being obscene, it hits at just the right spot in the waist to make it look teeny tiny, and the bottom flairs out just enough to be cute without making you look hippy. The bodice is made of a lovely oatmeal-colored heavy lacy applique over a cream colored lining. There are optional straps, but the top has a sticky grip in case you want to wear it strapless. The patterned skirt is interesting and there are no side seams to interrupt the pattern, making it just as lovely in profile as from the front. There is a beautiful blush colored grosgrain ribbon which lines the zipper in the back. The sash is substantial without being too delicate and can be tied in the front or back. The lining of the skirt is blush colored as well with mesh at the bottom which helps it to poof out and keep its shape all around even after sitting in it. I found the top to be a tad tight across my rib cage, however the sides are high enough that I did not have armpit flab popping out. I think this dress runs a little small. If you are small-busted like me, it will help to sew in some bust pads in the front. I am 5'2", 32A-26-32, 106 pounds. I bought the size 0 regular. The length was perfect on me even though I am short. I think the length of the petite would be too short. I am wearing it with the Ampay necklace in the picture. August 7, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful dress! I had been eyeing this dress online and when I went to the store and found one in my size, I was thrilled! I was even more excited when the size 2 fit perfectly (I'm usually a size 0). For my height of 5'2" this dress came 2 inches above my knees and fit my bust without sliding down. I would recommend sizing up for the best fit. The lace and embroidery details in the bodice of the dress are gorgeous and contrast nicely to the light, patterned material of the skirt. I wasn't sure if the crinoline lining of the skirt would cause too much poof, but it's just enough to create a flattering effect. The romantic design and high quality of the dress allow for a lot versatility. I can't wait to wear this dress to an evening out! Loved that it was on sale and got an additional 25% off...absolutely a steal! October 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous quality I found this dress on the sale rack yesterday and was impressed with the quality. It is a gorgeous, well-made dress. They had both a size 0 and 0P, so I took both to the dressing room. I am 5'2", 95 lbs, 32C and usually a petite size. However, in this dress the petite would have been much too short (showing underwear short). I really appreciate the new petite sizing Anthro is offering, but I have noticed a few occurrences now where the petite was incredibly short September 18, 2012
