Rated 1 out of 5 by Dress2the9s Not a good dress
The looks of this dress was great online and I have never been disappointed by an Anthro dress and have been willing to pay a little more because the quality was so good. This one is the exception. First was how it came. For the price of the dress I would expect it to come packaged better rather than rolled in tissue paper and stuffed in a too small bag. Second, probably because it was stuffed in a bag, the lower skirt portion did not lay properly and was puffy all around...Not at all flattering. The cotton material seemed very cheap and not like the usual dresses at Anthro. This was more like a $30 dress from other lower end retailers...Will be returning the dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gogogrl better than the current 2 1/2 rating
i saw the low rating for this dress (2 1/2 stars averaged from 2 reviews at the time), so i was a little worried that ordering this would be a waste of shipping, but i loved the black/white/blue graphic floral and fit and flair style.
i ordered the regular small. i'm normally anywhere from a 0 to a 6. even though i'm short, i tend to avoid the petite sizes of anthro dresses because they often end up being too high waisted on me.
i was very pleased with this dress when it arrived. i happen to like the fabric; the cotton doesn't feel cheap, and i like that it allows me to machine wash (and hang dry) the dress. the small fit my waist perfectly, hitting just above my waist. the length in the regular small was perfect -- short enough to be fun and flirty, but long enough to be work appropriate.
the only thing that was a little off-putting for me was the cowl neck. i had to fuss with it more than i would've liked. with the detail of the tiered flared skirt, i think a simpler neckline would've been fine. however, once i figured out what to do with the cowl, i like that because of the cotton material, it stayed in place all day and i didn't have to fuss with it again.
i wore it with a navy cardigan and peep toe heels, but i plan on wearing it with black tights, black tall boots, and a thicker sweater when it gets colder. the colors and pattern allow for year-round wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PollyWolly Stunning dress
I found this dress on the sale rack so tried it on, even though it's not a style I would wear often. The bold blue and black fabric is stunning and I found the dress to be a flattering cut. I thought it might be too puffy, but the bodice is slim and the skirt is not too wide. The medium fit well so I think it is true to size. It is perfect for a summer party. Regretfully, I did not buy it as I have no where to wear it, but I really wanted to!
