Rated 5 out of 5Â by Shannon2 Looks even better in person!
I ordered this dress online because it was not available in any of the stores in my state. I was nervous ordering something this expensive without even trying it on, but I'm glad I did. I took my measurements and used the sizing table to select my size and it was very accurate (not too snug, but not too loose). I'm really pleased because I think it actually looks better on me than the model in the photos (and that never happens)!
I will be wearing this as my wedding dress next year. I love it because it's very feminine, but not too formal. I didn't want the typical strapless snow-beast wedding dress that most women are wearing these days, so I'm happy I found this!

I've bought a number of dresses from Anthro lately in preparation for my graduation, and I've had to return them all for one reason or another. I was starting to give up hope! Then, this lovely piece caught my eye. I'm 5'1, 100lbs, 32/34B, and this dress in the 0P fits very well. It's gives me room enough to breathe, hits me just above the knee, and is very flattering around the stomach area. I'm dark-skinned, so I think I might have to wear a bra with it, which will spoil the pretty lace effect a little, but the dress is fully lined and I expect lots of people will be able to go braless. The detailing is very pretty but not so delicate I'll be afraid to clean it. I'm not usually one for overly feminine pieces but this has sexy touches in the sheer chest detailing and lacy back that offset the girly-ness of the lace. What I like most about this dress is that it appears pretty versatile. I'm sure I can dress it up or down easily, and for the price that's important (just in case any readers are interested, I think it would make a nice wedding dress if you're looking for something really relaxed and informal). The colour is a kind of cream, true to the photo. A perfect Spring into Summer piece!

Just a perfect summer dress. Light enought to wear on the hottest day, but fully lined so no major parts show through. Hits upper mid-thigh, but is more fitted than it appears to be on the Anthro model, particularly at the waist. I'm between sizes and went up, which worked perfectly. If wanting the more shapeless and gauzy look the model rocks, size up yet again.Perfect as is, though, emphasizing shapely shoulders and a narrow waist, hiding a bit of a tummy, and drawing attention to lean, tanned summer thighs. Great by sunshine and flip-flops or moonfall and a strappy wedge. Yay!
