Rated 4 out of 5 by adorable but runs small I really like this dress - the print, cut-outs, pockets, length. However, it runs small. I am normally an 8 or a medium in dresses, so I ordered a medium. I can't even zip it past my waist! Heck, I can't even stretch the material to meet at my waist. I'm not even sure if a large would work, as it's so small. Either it runs really tiny or this medium was mislabeled. I will have them order a large when I return it and keep my fingers crossed. May 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A bit petite This dress is simply adorable, but as the other reviewer mentioned, it runs quite small in the rib cage in comparison to most other Anthro items I own. However, for the longer waisted (or those looking for a somewhat lower-waisted fit & flare), this might be the one for you. I am very high-waisted, and it was definitely too long in the torso for me. I think on somewhat with a slimmer, longer upper body, this would be perfection. As to the other elements of design-the cutouts at the top are a cut detail to a very girly dress. The fabric is a nice weight and overall, the construction was spot on. The patterning was all well-placed, and I continued to really like the trimming at the waist and neck-line. All in all, this is a neat and tidy, yet fun, dress, and a great version of chambray for those of us that aren't the best at wearing it otherwise. I returned this dress, but only because it didn't fit, not because of any other defects or problems. May 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs Small! I didn't realize this was Dear Creatures when I bought it. Now the crazy sizing makes sense. I always have problems with their sizing. I normally wear a size M or an 8 in dresses. Per the reviews I chose to order the L and XL in this dress. I was able to fit in the L but the top flattened out my boobs in an unflattering way. The XL fits pretty well and wasn't baggy in the waist like I feared. I am a 34/36 D and I always have problems with the bust on Dear Creature dresses. Something about the cut makes my bust look a little frumpy but I put on my vintage cone bra from (What Katie Did) and that corrected the issue plus gave the whole look a little extra vintage kick! Also, I am not sure if it is because I had to go up two sizes or not but the dress hits much lower on me than on the model. Right above my knees. I am 5'5". My only other concern is that the stitching looked a little chintzy. I am a little worried about the longevity of this dresses life but I love the design so I will give it a chance. June 3, 2014

They strive to infuse each of their designs (this piped fit-and-flare frock included) with a nod to the past and an optimistic view of the future. Chambray Dot Dress
