I purchased this dress on sale with an extra 25% off - yay! Very comfortable but I imagine if you have a larger bust it might fit across the chest a little tight. I'm a 38C, size 12 and there was no extra room around my torso. Plenty of room throughout the hip area. Great length to wear with tights - not too short. Very happy.

I had my eye on this beautiful shift dress since I first spotted it in my local Anthro. The embroidery that adorns the front is beautiful. The zipper up the back is a sturdy type, not likely to bend or stick easy (a quality overlooked by many Anthro dresses).
I intended to purchase this in petite sizing but it sold out quickly once it hit sale. I ended up purchasing the 0 regular online hoping for the best. The dress hits about 1 1/2' above my knee - making me happy to not be outsized (or heading to a tailor). This shift is a bit more fitted than I was expecting, but in a great way. It hugs my curves, accentuating the little "hour glass" shape that I have.
I will agree with previous reviewers that it isa bit tight in the bust and arm hole area. I wear a 34C bra, and am an XS is most tops so I feel that it isn't an issue of me purchasing a dress too small. I'm afraid that if I sized up to a 2 the dress wouldn't fit my body the way this one does so I'm willing to make it work.
I'm very happy with the purchase!! For those who were hoping to catch this as a petite item on sale - give the regular sizing a try.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by PeasPpl Runs small up top
I like this shift a lot, but it runs a bit small up top if you have curves.. I am a 34D and the 6 flattened me out a lot; I could barely zip it all the way and 6 is usually my go to size. The size 8 fit better up top but my bra line was visible (code for the fabric traced my back fat). I wish the dress had more structure. I am 5'1, 129 ilbs' and the dress fell right at my knees, so I might take it up a bit and also take in the a-line flare of the skirt so that the bottom half fit more like the 6. OR, I might return the dress.
If you buy this online and you are curvy, size up to be safe. This dress is great for tall women with boyish to pear-shape figures.
