Rated 3 out of 5 by JoRock Pretty dress, but I'd wait for a sale
Got this as a gift. It's a really cute concept. From a distance it doesn't look like a sweater dress, but a multiblend peplum dress. It is indeed a sweater dress and the fit is a bit clingy. The dress is not lined; the material doesn't seem itchy so far, but after a full day at the office, no-lining may become uncomfortable for me, so I'm wearing it with a short full slip.
I usually wear a small and that's what I got, but it is a tiny bit tight in the arms. That may be more of a hereditary thing than a design flaw. It's a cute dress, a bit delicate in some places, so no jewelry while putting this one on. I'm glad this was a gift, 'cause for the price I wouldn't have bought it until it was on sale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SartorialSavvy fabulous design, mediocre quality
Oh Anthro. This dress is just so cute. Love the design, love the colors, love the soft knit, love the waist. But you can't charge us this much for a knit dress with no lining. It's kind of unfair of you to try. I am 5'6" and about 100 lbs. The XS fit me well, though it was short -- ladies, you'd probably want to wear this with tights if you wanted to wear it in an office, and you'd have to work in a laid-back office to boot. I adore Sparrow and have several of their sweaters, some of which I purchased at full price. This dress is on my wishlist, but I just can't afford this price point given the quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Andie211 Nice, but too short
This is a very cute dress, and looks as it appears online. I?m glad that Anthropologie is offering petite sizing, but it seems to work better for tops than dresses. As with my several prior attempts with petite dresses from Athro this one is too short in the waist and overall length. I am 5 feet tall and weight 91 lbs. I tried the xs petite instead of the xxs hoping it would be longer. It hits mid thigh, the waist is about an inch higher than it should be, and it fits too loose in the waist. Usually the 0 and xs regular size dresses are a little big and long on me so I don?t think going to regular sizing would work for my frame. I think the proportions of this dress could work for you if you are petite, a little curvy with square shoulders and want it mid thigh length.
