Rated 4 out of 5┬áby RosaVino Skip if over a sz 10
Wow is this body-con! I'm a 12/14 and I ordered a L. It's... quite form fitting, and not in a cute way. Maybe if I were thinner? Maybe if Anthro ordered things in other sizes? Let's see if this review even makes the cut for suggesting it.
The worst part is that on the whole, they will send one 14 and not many L or XL to their stores. I don't even have the option to go shopping in them for myself. I have then to pay high shipping prices, and the fit is never ever assured. It's upsetting.
Oh well, back it goes. Fit TTS, on small side. Not really suitable for the office - print is loud, back cut is quite low. It was lower on me than the model, though I am shorter, I'd imagine. (5'3)

This dress is lovely and extremely comfortable to wear. The material is super soft but definitely does cling to the skin, as it is a very form-fitting dress. I wore dresses in this material all through my pregnancy and was looking for something similar now that I am back to my regular size (4).
I do wear this to work, but always with a black blazer or long cashmere cardigan (since there is a scoop back), along with black patent heels and it looks professional, yet feminine.
Toss the jacket or sweater and the dress is perfect to go out after work!

This dress has come, gone and come again with no review so although it clearly is in no need of one I will put my two cents in. This is a dress I loved on the model. The first appeal was the length. I'm tall and am always looking for a dress with length. I was unsure as it looks like it could be a little age inappropriate (40's) but hoped the sleeve coverage would make the difference. The dress is long however you can ruche it up to shorten and place the folds where you like. The look is I believe not *tart*y as animal print fitted dresses can be and I think it is the sleeves. The dip at the back isn't too low and if it was lower and sleeveless the effect would be far cheaper. It just works. It's really well finished and I think the price point is perfect for the design, fabric and construction. The effect is quite arresting so you'd want to accessorise conservatively. Black patent Mary Janes look superb. Quite Parisian. TTS. Not office appropriate work wear but that's just obvious from the model shot...
