Rated 5 out of 5Â by francesca22 Pretty summer dress
I found this dress to run true to size. It has a loose fit through the waist and hips for sort of a flowy look. And it has pockets, which is nice. What the pictures don't show is that this dress is decidedly shorter in the front and longer in the back, with about a three inch difference. I like this styling, but others might not. Also, the front is a little shorter than I imagined based on the picture. I am 5'3" and it hits me well above my knee--just below mid thigh. The fabric is soft, the pattern really sharp, and the colors vivid, and although I like my dresses a little more fitted, I am keeping this because the overall affect is really nice.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by GraceGirl unexpected surprise
Love this dress! It does run small so if you are large in the chest area - keep that in mind.
What I didn't notice when I ordered it is the hemline. It's shaped like a men's oxford shirt with a longer tail in back. A great unexpected touch!
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the polyester lining. The fabric is so beautiful and then to put a lining like that didn't make sense to me. It also makes it a bit hotter for summer temperatures. Polyester just does not breath well.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cerasays Beautiful print great fit
This dress is absolutely beautiful! I was worried about the colors of the dress and my skin tone and would have preferred to buy the blue dress but this one was such a great price point so i was happily surprised when I really liked the way the dress looks on (i have more red undertones). The dress runs true to size I got a 4 which is always what I purchase at anthro and it has a loose fit like it supposed too. I was also hesitant because some commenters had mentioned to possibly be aware if you are larger in the chest than the bum but I wear a 32dd and have a curvy bottom, though on the slim side and the dress fits perfectly. Hits above the knee but at 5'4 is not too short for me. I love the bright color for summer but I will wear it in fall and winter just for a pop of color underneath my many layers of clothing. The dress is also very soft and feels feminine and dainty but also has a lining so you don't have to treat it like a flower petal. I love finding these little gems marked way down at anthro that are absolutely beautiful they just don't pertain to every woman's style so they find the sale rack and make my day! I would recommend this dress it demands attention with the beautiful print but in a coy way by being a loose fitting collared shirtdress and adding a little bit of spice with the above knee hem. oh yeah and I love thats its longer in the back and shorter in front!
