Â by timelesslystyled Perfect summer wedding/ cocktail dress
I was apprehensive to purchase this dress based on the reviews but I am so glad i took the chance. This style of dress usually suits my body type the best so I gambled and ordered online. There are a lot of negative reviews about the armpit area of the dress cutting in too much and exposing your bra and I have to admit that I do agree with that negative point....however it was solved when I tried it on without a bra (which I almost never do) but it worked since the fabric has a bit of stretch to it and is thick enough not to expose yourself if you get cold. Since it's summer, I wore shorts version of spanks because i personally hate wearing a dress and worrying about my thighs sweating....and because the dress has lining ,thicker fabric, and is a longer length, you couldn't even tell I was wearing anything extra underneath (which made my dress wearing experience very comfortable and I didn't want to take it off when I got home).
To sum things up, the dress quality is excellent, the armpit situation was fixed with NOT wearing a bra (and for reference my bust size is 34DD) and I purchased all of the accessories the model is shown wearing and just switched out the sandals for nude stiletto pumps. I received so many compliments at the wedding.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Alka Great Dress, Bad Sizing
I read the reviews before buying this dress, and I'm glad I did. The sizing is too small by a whole size, just as the reviews said, so I bought a size up. The reviews also mention a weird cut in the top; I agree, the picture does not let this on but it cuts much more into the chest, so I've just decided to use a strapless bra and it seems to look fine. For the price, this dress seems really well made and designed. The pattern is beautiful, but a bit more saturated than the picture lets on. Also, this model is obviously very tall/the dress has been hemmed, because I'm 5'6", and it it falls at my knees. Might get it hemmed. Overall, very happy with this dress!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by simplicitygal79 Classy sophisticated & undeniably gorgeous
I had a feeling this artsy watercolor palette pencil dress would be unique in it's blend of colors and super gorgeous in person! I am 5'5 and 115 lbs. Ordered the size zero and I love me a dress that makes me look super slender and classy! I understand what others say about bra straps but I don't see it as a problem. Wear a strapless bra or wear a cross back bra which solves the problem. I had my own skinny belt which I used as the belt. I can do with or without the belt. I have a ton of dresses from Anthro and this by far is one of the classiest ones in a subtle abstract way. Love love love!!!!!
