Rated 5 out of 5 by ztee so gorgeous
this dress looks so much better on than in the picture. I saw it online and thought I'd nip into Anthro to try it on and it looked amazing! This is SUCH a flattering fit. It hangs beautifully without looking like a maternity cover up. So pleased I bought it - you can totally dress it up or make it more casual. The fabric is 100% silk so it hangs and feels lovely. I predict it's going to sell out fast!
I am a 4-6 on top and a 8 on the bottom and the xs/s fits like it was made for me. The adjustable straps means it doesn't let everything hang out either.

Tried it on in the store and immediately fell in love. A major convenience is that the straps are adjustable!! That makes it perfect for a range of heights & shoulder widths. I'm only 5'0, small shoulders, and at the shortest strap length the dress actually doesn't sweep the floor - amazing! I took the XS/S. 5'0, 115lbs, petite and curvy, 30C-25-40. The material skims beautifully over curves without being tight or sticky on the hips/butt/thighs area... that is an absolute requirement for me. The adjustable strap gives you excellent cleavage control, you can see in the pics that the neckline is different on the two models. The material is a gorgeous silk. It's thin and a teeny tiny bit see-through... I think it would have been legit see-through in another color but the black saves it. With nude underwear, I don't have a problem with anything showing and I don't need a slip. Price is pretty good for 100% silk! The silk really shows in the way the dress moves... another reason I wouldn't wear a slip - it would interfere with the natural movement of the dress, which is beautiful. Easy, breezy, comfortable. I love the panels on the sides, they flutter in the breeze when you walk. Because the dress uses closed panels instead of being open all the way to the ends, it doesn't look maternity or tent-like at all. Not that I don't love a fab tent dress - but this is not it. This can actually be pretty dressy if you want to dress it up, and equally at home on a beach. It's a no brainer. It will sell out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shopgirlchic NO way this is making to sale.
This dress is gorgeous! I am 5'6" and size 12-16 range and busty and the M/L Petite actually fits fantastic. My local store only had the petite version and the way it was flying out of the store, this was the last one and looked just great so there was no way I was leaving without it even though I normally don't purchase petite. I can't say how flattering this is on. It is etheral and the value is great. I wish anthro would get back to doing more silk dresses as they did just 3-4 years ago instead of all the $200 plus ply ones. The adjustable straps offer a range of neckline looks and dress length, and I love how it flows. It is totally sheer, I think I might wear it with pretty black cropped legging underneath or a flimsy half mini slip, that's the only drawback, it could have been properly lined without ruining the movement of the dress as a slip will and who wants additional straps for a look like this. It was a hit at home with my husband too..you know it's a keeper when they don't ask how much it was!
