Rated 4 out of 5Â by Pat99 Anthro is going back
This is a beautiful dress, I loved it but unfortunately I am short and big breast so I did not think it looked good on me, but the detail of the dress is stunning, it reminds me of cute, feminine dresses Anthropologie use to sell years ago. I do believe it's over price for the material, I guess it is price high because of the laser cut design. I will suggest go a size down, I am normally size 8 and the 6 fit perfecly, the size 8 was too big.

I was so excited to get this one. I had stalked it for a couple months praying it would not sell out. The sides have some sort of elastic paneling that helps the dress mold to you. I was uncertain how I felt about it on, so I polled my friends. All but one said to keep it. I would agree with other reviews that it is on the larger side, but I need the roomier top for my bust. I am 5'4.5 and this hits nicely below my knees. I don't usually like that, but with the straighter skirt, it works - plus it allows me to wear to church and not be embarrassed. I would never have guess such a beautiful dress would be so comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JustErin A Curvy Girl's Dress - Not for Everyone
The details on this dress are stunning - and it definitely warrants the price tag. I was surprised that there was no zipper on this dress - there are stretchy panels built in along the sides of the lower portion of the dress and buttons down the front.
Fit: I am normally a six/eight - my store only had the eight to try on. I think personally I would size up, as I had some gaping between the buttons at the widest part of my waist.
And sadly for me - this isn't the dress of my dreams. I can understand the raves from the curvy girls - but on me - this just highlights my rectangle shape (and lack of waist) - and left me feeling uncomfortable with how tightly it clung to my legs.
