Rated 4 out of 5Â by TaylorKitCat Adorable dress, but broad shouldered ladies beware
I LOVED everything about this dress: the length (short, but not TOO short), the weight (heavy, but not overbearing), the material/texture, the faux wrap design, the neckline...but there was one huge problem: it was SKIN TIGHT in my shoulders and arms. Fit TTS everywhere else, but it was like I was wearing a top for a 5 year old! In fairness to the dress while I am small chested, I do have very muscular/athletic arms, and I am "spoon" shaped, meaning, my shoulders are wider than my hips. So maybe it's me and not the dress. I think this is a keeper for petite ladies, or ladies with very slender arms. Wish it would have worked on me! : (

Rated 1 out of 5Â by slim Why the crazy cut?
I don't know why Anthro designers do this, but I'm seeing these super-skinny sleeves on more desses & blouses and it's getting annoying! I do not have muscular arms by any means - but these sleeves were so tight that I could not even get this dress on. And the rest of the garment was cut in a somewhat boxy shape - even a small was too big around the body on me, it was not fitted or flattering at all. This model looks comfortable in the dress, but on me it looked like a flour sack except where the fabric was visibly strained across the arms. Please, Anthro, loosen up with the sleeves!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by cocoscloset Flattering Faux Wrap
First the positives, The blue is a nice wintery color. The length is appropriate and I am 5ft 8 1/2''. The dress should be flattering especially for the curvy figures. The problem with the dress is that the arms are super super tight fitting. I grabbed my usual medium and I couldn't hardly get my arms in the dress. I went back and tried on the large thinking that would help and it did not. The dress was too big in the waist yet fit in the chest. Also, the gathering around the waist was too big. If they could remake this dress with the correct proportions it would be a winner.
