Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs large! This dress is exactly like the "impressionist" dress by TR from last season, but it runs larger. I took that dress in a 6 and needed to size down to a 4 in this one. I am 5'1", 107#, 34C, and the 4 was perfect. The length came a couple of inches below the bottom of my knee cap, so it fit exactly how it fit Michelle Obama. You can't wear a regular bra with it, and you can't wear a racerback bra either because the top of the zipper ends mid back, and there is slight keyhole opening from there to the top where the button is, so the straps would show. The colors are more vibrant than how it looks online [at least on my computer screen]. February 7, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great design, too short! I was so excited to see this dress. Beautiful design and fresh color, perfect for a Spring wedding. Then I tried it on. Fitted like a glove but with fingers that are too short!! Come on Anthropologie, why did you shorten this dress. Can you perhaps cater for some of your taller customers. 41" or longer please. This lost all of the elegance I expected by being a shorter length. January 11, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not a Wonderful Change Michelle Obama's dress (like this one) worn this year at the DNC stopped right past her knees...why did Tracy decide or allow someone else to convince her that a shorter version would be as attractive. I think I still want the dress, but not nearly as I did when Michelle wore it. It does not have the jaw dropping aesthetic umph as a mini-dress. November 15, 2012

Size Guide

How to Measure


Measure under your arms at the fuller part of your bust. Keep tape level across your shoulder blades.

Natural Waist

Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape comfortably loose.

Drop Waist

Measure around your body 1 1/2" below your natural waist.


Stand with your feet together and measure around the fullest part of your hips.


Using a pair of your pants that fit well, measure from crotch seam to bottom of leg.


Wrap a length of string around your finger and mark where the end touches. Measure the distance between the end of the string and the mark you've made to determine what size to order.
