Rated 5 out of 5Â by pabird Striking and flattering
I just received this dress and am very happy with it. I would agree with a previous review that it is on the greenish-yellow side, but still a nice bright shade which, while not the color of a dandelion, really does glow when you put it on. It works fine with other yellow items (cardigans, shoes) that I own. It seems true to size, as I am typically order 00P in Anthro dresses and that worked fine here.
The paneled construction of the dress is striking and works really well. The side panels of the bodice are elasticated so it's very comfortable. I am 30B bra size, and this dress is very flattering for small busts. I'm 5 ft 3 inches tall and the waistband for 00P was perfectly placed. The lengths that were given for this dress were very short, so I thought that perhaps it had detachable straps, but that isn't the case. However, they can be adjusted: they are sewn in at the front of the dress and there are two settings for two buttons on each strap where it meets the back of the dress . If you needed to shorten the strap length it would be easy to make a couple more holes. I have a long torso, but the dress worked fine for me on the original setting, so there probably won't be a problem with the straps being too short. If you don't like the belt that comes with the dress, it would be easy enough to remove by snipping a few threads. However, it really does need a belt, because although the waist is small it really looks much more flattering with the belt.
This is quite a long dress, as the 00P fell right at the top of the knee for me (as it does on the model), at 5 ft 3 inches. If you are a few inches shorter than me you may still find the petite version too long, and if you are a couple of inches taller you might still prefer the petite version. It is a nice light cotton dress that will be good for hot and humid days, and like many Anthro dresses is has handy pockets. The last great feature of this dress is that it is easy care - machine wash and dry! Definitely try if you are on the fence.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Lola314 Not yellow!
I ordered this dress because I was excited by the way the color looks online, but when it arrived I found that its definitely more lime green than yellow, so if you're looking for a purely yellow dress this is not the one for you! I can't speak to the fit, I didn't bother taking it out of the bag since I knew I didn't like the color.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RoseC123 Anthro did it again!
I recently purchased an expensive dress from Anthro and I told myself I would wait a few months/year to buy another full priced item, but when I saw this it looked so perfect I had to at least try it! When I added it into my cart, it said my size was just about to sell out! so I quickly grabbed the last one! so it was basically meant to be for me to have it :D
I received it a few days ago and when I first opened it, my first thought was how the color is COMPLETELY NOT the color that's shown on the model. Like the other reviewer mentioned: it's yellow it some lighting, in another it's a lime-ish, almost neon colored yellow, not drastic though; still very pretty!
The fit is TTS! I got a petite 00 and i'm 5'2, 102lbs, 34A/24/34. the bust seems a little bit too low for me so I will probably put another notch over the provided strap length levels it has. It has a side elastic bodice, so if I were (god forbid) to gain any weight, it should have room for stretch. The hem hits over the knee, just like on the model. It also comes with a cute little coin pouch attracted to the strap! And another bonus: POCKETS! I recommend snagging this up before it's gone! it's such a perfect, vintage inspired sundress!
