Rated 3 out of 5Â by DancerD135 Not designed with curves in mind
I saw this dress on anthro's Instagram account and ordered it that day. I received it yesterday and was so excited, however sadly disappointed. I know made in kind designs run small with some designs but this was bad! Maybe it was designed for those of you with no curves, but I tried on a 12 and the bottom was so tight!!!! It showed every bulge and dimple then the top was huge!! The bottom is a very light pink and it pretty see through. Overall the color scheme and vintage feel is great. If it would have fit I would have kept it, but there was no getting around it. Maybe someone will have better luck, but sadly it had to go back

I absolutely LOVE the dress! I'm a size 0/2 and have a small curvy frame..also a mother of 4 so I don't have a "perfect body with 10% body fat"...but I love how the dress fit! It hugs your body, accentuating an hour-glass figure. The gold zipper detail in the back draws eyes to your bum and is very flattering. The kimono type top gives a light and flowing appearance as the bottom of the dress is more hugging. The biggest flaw is the density of the material. It is thin and revealing. What I wear under it is a nude color slip (one piece slip from chect to knees). It actually helps the dress lay smoother - covering any buldges that might exist- while covering your undergarments as well.
The color scheme is breath taking and can be worn in any season! I get so many compliments on this dress and have worn it out to dinner and to a baby shower. I'm just upset that I paid $258 for it and now it's on sale! Argh! Buy it... you'll love it!

This dress is very lovely. It fits exactly the way that it looks in the picture, though the colors are perhaps slightly more vivid. The only caveat it that due to the cut of the skirt it really, really draws attention to your behind. If you are curvy, you may find that it fits snugly in the hips. And, as everyone else has mentioned, you cannot wear this dress without a slip. The material is synthetic rather than silk, which is also unfortunate. But nonetheless it is worth the sale price - the colors are beautiful and the cut is pretty unique. I definitely recommend it.
