┬áby NYCleaf Uncomfortable Maternity Dress
I think if you're more than a B cup, this will look like a maternity dress no matter what. I should have listened to the previous reviewers. I'm 5'8" 140lbs (34DD and 28" waist). My usual dress size is 8, so after reading all of the "potato sack" reviews, I got a size 6. This dress won't flatter my body type. The chest was too tight but the waist was way too big. Also I thought the shoulders were bit too puffy.

I wanted to LOVE this dress. I ordered the size 2 because I am normally a size 0 in Anthro dresses and 2 is this designer's lowest size. It was gigantic. I felt like I was swimming in it and it was extremely stiff. The deep U-shape in the front came way too low to wear the dress on its own and the dress itself fell a good inch and a half below my knees: I am 5'3" and 103 pounds. Having said that, however, the quality is exquisite. I think for someone who is extremely tall with a larger bone structure would probably look fantastic in this dress, but it is not for the petite boned or short of stature. Super disappointed. Back it went immediately.

This dress is a real disappointment in person. Absolutely not the tailored, sophisticated garment pictured. Other reviewers state that this dress is over- sized and while I tend to agree, I believe that the garment has other issues that would not be corrected by just simply sizing down.
The most significant issue is the length of the bodice - it is extremely short and is almost junior. This shortness, paired with a lack of tailoring or adequate tailoring based on garment size creates a much more boxy look than the very tailored garment pictured.
It is beautifully sewn, however. And I love the detailing. Very disappointing - I wish Anthropologie would actually offer the dress that we're seeing but whatever was sampled doesn't actually appear to have been delivered.
