Rated 2 out of 5 by TLHA So cute, but oddly cut for certain bods!
I am so bummed that this piece didn't work out! I was so looking forward to wearing it.
It was so tight on my arms that I couldn't even pull it up toward my chest, which it probably wouldn't have fit anyway.
I go between a 12 and a 14, closer to a 12, typically. I ordered this in a 14 and it was NOT EVEN CLOSE.
Would recommend if you have really tiny arms and a tiny chest, and eill even work out if you have hips, because the bottom fit well. But if you are at all muscular or your arms are naturally larger it will probably not work out. Also not good for busty girls.
The material is very pretty and the dress is a nice cut, but not 100% sure it is worth the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LongIslandLolita For reference, I am a 32D, usually a size 2 in Petite dresses and slender frame.
I tried on the size 0 Petite and felt the arm and shoulder areas to be too constrictive when lifting my arms. Other than that major detail, the dress was lovely. I tried on the size 4 Petite and the arm and shoulder areas are a whole lot better and very normal. However, the waistline was a tad too big. Someone clearly had returned these sizes, as Petite is not carried in my store. There was no 2 Petite that I could try on, I assume this was not a returned size.
If a size 2 Petite were to become available when this dress goes on sale, I might consider purchasing it. Granted it fits comfortably, I will keep it.
The colors of the dress are not as vibrant in person as they look in the online image. This was what put me off with this dress to begin with, but when I happened to see that the colors were slightly darker I started to appreciate the dress.
A previous reviewer recommended to chose your size according to the size chart. But I have to disagree because that would have meant a size 00 Petite would have been my size. This would have been way too small and I may have not been able to zip up the dress. I am assuming that a 2 Petite would be best for me, as the 0 was too tight and the 4 too loose.
The quality of the material is nice! I actually thought it was 100% polyester, but only the lining is. The outer part of the dress is 100% silk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anthroadicted Perfect in petite size...
I am so glad about the previous petite reviewer description of this dress, as it really helped me to choose the right size for this particular dress. I normally wear regular size 8 in most Anthro brands however, I ended up taking the 10 petite in this one and it fits perfect. I am 130lbs, 5'1" , 36 C. The dress is comfortable all around, including the arms. The length is 1 inch above my knee. I found the colors to be just like in the picture. I highly recommend this beauty :-)
