Rated 2 out of 5
by seatownie not flattering on me
I'm embarrassed to post these pictures, because of how awful this dress looks on me, but it may help others in the decision to get this online. I got my normal size 4. I love wearing loose shift dresses, but this does not work for me. Something about the cut and the extra material in the back makes it hang on my body oddly. I weigh 130 lbs, but this dress seems to add 30 more. The concept is very cute and the quality of the dress is great. There's a nice lining and the material is slightly silky and machine washable. Sizing down might help, but I don't want to pay the shipping costs to find out. It's gotta go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1960 Quality shift dress
For those of us that like sleeves, I have a narrow frame, no chest, and this dress is not baggy for a shift dress. It hangs nicely, and has side pockets. The fabric is quality and color is richly hued and beautiful. All cotton sold it for me. Fabric weight is perfect not too thin or thick. Also has a fine black cotton sewn in slip. Just a nice comfortable dress for the day. Great basic to accessorize too. Runs true to size. Looks better on than pictured. 5'8", 145 lbs. took a size 10.

This dress looked nothing special on line and wasn't impressive in person either. I picked it up on whim, attracted to the blue colour and quality of fabric and what a great find it turned out to be!
I am busty ( 34D) and just don't fit into majority of Anthro dresses, but this dress in size 10 looked great on me.
While being very understated it's very stylish and flattering and what it sounds like from reviews here, fits both body types, skinny or curvaceous.
I did have a bit of an issue with a back side though, it bunches up a little bit, but I recall that most vintage 60s shifts had the same issue.
And the fabric and colours deserve an honourable mention, they are excellent!
