Rated 4 out of 5 by GDMN Very pretty, not worth the price
This dress is so appealing in the photo. The materials are nice enough in quality, but the overall look could be achieved at a much cheaper store. Something about it just doesn't come across as expensive.
As for the fit, I'm usually an 8, but ordered a 10 for extra length. The top was much too big, and there's no good way to have it taken in. Mainly my issue was that the top is cut much larger than the bottom - the sleeves have almost a dolman effect at the armpit, and are not as fitted as they ought to be. I have a very average frame, so I think this may be an issue in general.
If it were less expensive, I'd keep it. But for the price, it should be more of a work of art as it looks in the photos.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LDDL VERY narrow through the hips
I bought this dress in a size 2, which is my normal size, and I have plenty of other dresses from Anthropologie in my closet to confirm this. While the Toulouse Cocktail Sheath fit perfectly well on top, there was no way I could have sat down without splitting the seams on the pink lining of the skirt. If you have any hips, booty, or basically, if you have any curves at all, stop dreaming about this dress. It won't fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by knh126 biggest dissappointment ever
i watched this dress for MONTHs, literally months, waiting for it to go on sale. so when the 25% off dresses came this past weekend, i ordered it immediately. per anthro style, it was delivered quickly and it was wrapped in beautiful paper and i couldnt wait to open my planned dress for new years eve. however, when i pulled the dress out of its packaging, i could not have been more disappointed. the top is way too wide, which i saw in the reviews but didnt think itd be an issue because im a 34 D up top and figured a little extra room couldnt hurt. wrong. it's not just roomie- it's poor fitting. and the lace is not soft- in fact, it almost feels plastic, and just very, very cheap. the colors are brighter in person and look gaudy on. the fit is poor, the material is ugly, and this has been the only dress from anthropologie i have ever purchased and been disappointed with. i will be returning it immediately, because it's really not worth the 288 price tag. luckily anthropologie is an incredible store and has plenty of other options, but still... cannot mask my disappointment with this one, especially when i had been so in love.
