Rated 4 out of 5 by So cute on. Very flattering. Love love this dress. Great true red. Very flattering for the girls like me who wear lots of dresses that are fitted up top and flare out from the waist down. BUT, beware. This zipper is a BEAST! The fabric is really thick/heavy and the zipper is tough to zip just on the hanger...but almost impossible when it's on your body. I thought I was going to have to let my husband cut me out of it! I suggest getting a bar of soap and rubbing it up and down the inside of the zipper before you wear this. November 19, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Zipper isn't worth it! Loved this dress. Tried it on. Very flattering. After reading reviews about the zipper I was aware that it would be difficult. The anthro personnel and I tried at this zipper for over 15 minutes. I actually have a blister on my finger from struggling with the zipper. I finally got it to zip up but had the same problem unzipping it. I purchased it anyway because it's so darling. Then came to my senses. This dress is absolutely beautiful, soap or no soap, a dress for this price should not be this painstaking to get on. I am returning it. I've also read that this fits big. I find it to be true to size! I like dresses in petite but this dress sits at the perfect length in regular, just as it does on the model. December 4, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautifully made but not for me... I really loved everything about this dress. The fabric is beautiful, thick, and detailed. It has a built in slip, too. It was the sizing that was the problem. I have a small frame, 5'2" and I'm about 105 lbs, so I usually head straight to 0. I'm a 32B up top and curvier towards the bottom so the design of this dress would balance that out nicely. In this case, I tried the 0 on in the store and it was too big by inches on the waist and sagging below the arms. I looked online and found that a 00 was only offered in petite, so ordered it. It came in today and it is uncomfortably short (a good 10-12 inches above my knees, not appropriate for a work holiday party). The waist is also at an awkward place. I'm small already, I don't need any more help looking doll-ish! Combine that with the stubborn zipper and... it's going back. Wish it was offered in a 00 regular! December 3, 2012
