Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful summer dress! The first time I passed by this dress, I didn't even give it a second look. After seeing rave reviews here and on product review blogs, I decided to go back to Anthro to try it on. I ended up taking it home with me! This is a high quality cotton dress with beautiful beadwork (this is coming from someone who isn't a fan of beads on clothing), removal straps, and boning in the bodice for extra support when you want to wear the dress strapless. It's dry clean only; my guess is probably due to the boning...you wouldn't want that to get mangled and potentially damage your dress in the washer! The print is very pretty... It has kind of a tribal feel to it, which I'm typically not a fan of. But the colors are very neutral - ecru, red and navy - making this dress very wearable for me. I'll just need to figure out what cardigan I should pair it with in order to wear this to the office. My only complaint about the print is that the strip of navy down the middle of the skirt isn't perfectly centered with the bodice...but it appears that the product image is that way as well. No biggie, just a minor detail. I got this in a size 6 and it fits perfectly. I have another Yoana dress, the Channeled Dots Column dress from last fall, which I also got in a 6. My measurements are 32DD/)DDD (38") - 29" - 37" and while it was just a little bit loose in the waist, my chest just managed to fit (so sizing down was not an option). I would still say it's true to size, since I am a 6 in most things Anthro. My photo doesn't do the dress justice--I have another size of the same dress hanging in the background so you can't see the definition this dress gives my relatively straight figure! The dress hits below my knees--another typical no-no for me, thankfully I have been working on my calves so I will make it work! Gorgeous dress, I will try to wear this into the fall :) July 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful! I just tried this style in-store and it is stunning! It is a great dress for the summer. It is lightweight, but lined and fantastic quality! I had ordered my usual size 2 online (I thought it was an online exclusive only) and tried it on in store today out of curiosity since my package hasn't arrived yet and it was swimming on me. I bought the Sz. 0 in store to avoid shipping charges and that fit much better, but if offered in a 00 I probably would have tried that on. It was loose in the bodice, it is ribbed though which is a nice detail to make sure it shows off your curves since the bottom portion of the dress is full. Very different and would be excellent for a vacation or a nice afternoon of wine tasting :) July 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by PERFECT FOR INDEPENDENCE DAY! I am so excited to wear this dress for the cookouts and parties planned for the July 4th holiday celebrations! I love the removable straps and the corseting. I can get the support I need without the pesky tanlines! The lightweight cotton is breathable, but still has you completely covered (no sheer here)! Highly recommend for the holiday weekend or any other fun BBQ this summer! July 2, 2014
