Rated 4 out of 5Â by DenverStacy Good, not great
I love the print of this dress but it definitely looks better on than it does on the hanger. It does run large...I'm large chested (34D) and the 4 fit well. I do want to warn that it is a bit see-thru so would suggest wearing nude-colored underwear and bra. I loved the length of it...I'm 5'5", 135lbs and could easily wear flats with it, which is great because maxi length dresses run so long generally that I have to wear a wedge/heel. Unfortunately, for the price, it didn't "wow" me enough. For now, I wait until it goes on sale. OH...also...need to definitely wear it belted because it looked awful before I tied the belt but was extremely slimming once I did.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ElizaBee Try This On!
I went into Anthro looking for a comfortable and stylish dress and one of the saleswomen grabbed this for me to try on. I had initially walked by it and wouldn't have tried it on were it not for it being in the fitting room, but I'm so glad that I did! I agree with other reviewers that it looks much better on the body than the hanger. The dress is lined but nude undergarments are still necessary. I got a ton of compliments on this dress and am excited to wear it through the spring and summer.
I don't know if this would be long enough for flats if someone was on the tall side. I'm a little shorter and I could pair it with flats and not trip on the dress.
It does wrinkle a bit if you're sitting down for a while, but that comes with the fabric territory and the pattern is bold enough that it's not noticeable.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by amandalou Pakpao POW WOW
This is actually the first dress that I've purchased from Anthro. I ordered it online and was concerned that it might not fit me. I am 6ft and usually a size 16 which is sometimes hard to accommodate, but this dress fit perfectly!
I'm obsessed with the fabric and tribal motif. It's perfect for summer. I'm sure I'll get a lot of wear out of it because it was SO comfy when I tried it on! Sadly, because of my height it's not quite as long as I would like it to be but I knew it wouldn't be, so I plan on embracing it more as an "extended" midi.
I will most likely have to wear a razor-back bra with it because my bra straps show. Also, there are pleats in the bust area that accentuate my breasts which is never a good thing because I am a 36DD and need no help in that area.... but I'm sure I can work with it.
I just wish it would have came in a TALL length. That's really my only complaint but again, it does not look bad worn with chunky heels. I'm also thinking about getting a slight wedged heel to wear with it.
