Rated 5 out of 5Â by AnnVeal Even better in person
This dress is gorgeous and so chic in person. The brocade has a subtle gold sheen, definitely not in your face. I typically wear size 6 in fitted skirts/dresses (5'6" 133lbs, 32D-28-38), and I actually found it to fit TTS. Often because I am curvier below than up top, a more fitted dress will fit my bottom half but be baggy on top. I found this dress to fit well all over, so I can definitely see that people who are more hourglass-figured than I would have issues with the top being too tight. The front has a nice pleating detail. It has an exposed back zipper. The length hit me right at the knee. I am holding off on buying it right now, because I don't have any particular event to wear it to (and I feel like its more of an "occasion dress"), and also I'm not sure it works entirely well with my skin color. I agree with other reviewers in that the colors are a little more vibrant in person, with an overall yellow/mustardy tone. A great dress if you have a very specific body type :/

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ieholly Really Pretty in Person
This dress is very pretty in person. I got it for a spring wedding I am attending. I think it runs a little small all over. I usually wear a 0 in this brand and wasn't able to zip up the last bit. This feels this dress feels more like a 00. Other than the dress its perfect. I am going to exchange it for one size up.
For reference - I'm 5'6'' 120 32DD

I bought this dress in store. After reading the reviews I was concerned that it would not fit my chest (34C) but I was surprised to find that it fit snuggly. However, I do think it may run a bit smaller on top than other Anthro dresses since I'm usually a 6/8 and I took an 8 in this dress.
The fabric is so chic and will be perfect for my bridal shower in April. I suggest anyone who is on the fence that it is work a try.
