Rated 5 out of 5Â by Latina Essential Summer Dress
2 year's ago I purchased a silk Leifsdottir dress at Anthro that wast he same exact cut and style in unlined silk in a geometric floral print. That dress quickly became my favorite dress ever and I still wear it often. When I saw there was an updated version I ordered it immediately without reading any details. I was pleased to see it cost significantly less than the old version. When it arrived was I was also happy to see this one was lined. The blue is absolutely beautiful in person and the flowers vibrant. The dress will not let you down. I would say it runs true to size. When I tried on my other version at a store a few years ago, both the size I bought and the size below fit well, I just opted for the size up because I loved how breezy it was. Both sizes are my normal size depending on who makes the clothing. I do recommend buying your normal size, there is no need to order up if your size is consistent. I will keep buying different prints of the dress as long as Leifsdottir keeps making them

Rated 2 out of 5Â by alohakristy Cut not flattering
I am 5'2" and 130 lbs and usually wear an 8 in a dress due to my large breast size (36D/size 4 to 6 in pants). When I tried this dress on, it made me look 4 months pregnant. The rounded empire waist and gathering of the material there make the dress flow outward in the midsection. The fabric does not have enough weight to carry this type of styling.I think a smaller size would have helped (there was A LOT of fabric) but I don't think that was the whole problem. The fabric itself is beautiful, the colors vibrant and the dress is light and comfortable for summer and of good quality. I am sad to have to return it because there are so many reasons to like it. But looking like I am pregnant when I am not -is just not good.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jennifer0816 Love the dress!
After reading the reviews, I decided to get the dress in an 8. I am normally between an 8 and a 10, but since I have a 36DDD chest I rarely can size down in dresses like this cause the top part just doesn't work. I love it though! Yeah it's a little roomy around the waist, but that's how the dress is supposed to look! I like it.
I don't think it makes me look bigger than I am on the bottom. I hate dresses that flare outwards at the seam and make your hips seem huge, but this really doesn't do that. As someone with a large chest, the dress definitely does not hit me in the same place that it hits the model - it looks closer to empire waist in the front and the seam sits just below my chest. Hopefully the pic helps!
