Rated 5 out of 5Â by lamb8 Why so harsh?
I ordered this dress even after reading the negative reviews, and I am glad I did! It is polyester, yes, but the dress is very heavy, completely opaque, and the fabric has a very slight sheen to it. Perfect to wear to a formal event-- not casual enough for the beach but doesn't scream "prom" either. I don't believe for a second this could be bought at Target or any other cheap store, it is SO heavy and the sewing is intricate. Though a bit of a fabric snob, the polyester doesn't look or feel cheap in any way. What's it supposed to be made out of? Chiffon--wedding. Silk--shows every lump and bump. Looks expensive and I got a ton of compliments the whole night I wore it. LOVE.

I ordered this dress because I absolutely loved the design, and figured that $200 polyester would POSSIBLY be ok.... but polyester is polyester. The material mimicked anything I could have gotten for $50 at Target. Too bad -- gorgeous dress, just looked cheap because of the material.

I totally agree with the other reviewer about anthro carrying WAY TOO MANY polyester items!!!
Anthro, your customers are sophisticated shoppers who are knowledgeable about quality. Dont just stock your stores with beautiful items to your eyes and ignore how bad the fabric feels in your hand or how they might fall apart after one wash. If we didnt care for quality, we would be shopping at your sister store, Urban Outfitters!
