┬áby applefritter Gorgeous, but runs small
This is such a fabulous spring dress - the mock wrap (top and bottom) and fitted waist make it incredibly flattering. Colors are great too - a soft off-white and pops of orange are really fun, but much brighter in person. The top is really awesome - very accommodating for all size chests with the crossover. It's lightly basted together to maintain modesty, but I'd recommend either a cami underneath or really bolt that bad boy down (maybe a hook-and-eye?). It's the perfect balance of day-to-night versatility.
My only gripes are that it's kind of a cheap-feeling polyester fabric (ugh), it's lined but still kind of see-through (UGH), the fluttery sleeves are kind of shoulderpad-esque and the hips run really tight. I'm a 2/4 in Anthro dresses (32DD/26/37) and the 4 fit perfectly except at the hips. It fit, but I was really at the limit. This is going to be a problem for most girls, since I'm so hourglass. It also meant the bottom wrap part tended to pull kind of funny... so yeah, size up if you've got any hips.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby neversink7 pretty but could be better
I loved the print on this dress with the birds. I am 5'5" and 144 lbs and usually wears size 8 or 10 in dresses. I got size 8 and could not zip up the back although the shoulder/chest area felt loose. I am wide shouldered but small busted, so if I sized up for the waist area to fit, the bust area would be even bigger. The sleeves were also more capped than anticipated, and the length was longer than just below the knee, so hit me at an unflattering level. The material didn't feel too bad for polyester and was lined so actually felt quite heavy for a summer type dress. I think would probably work better for hour glass shaped gals.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Severetta Great print, runs pretty small
This dress has a slightly odd fit. The dress appears to run rather large throughout the shoulders and the bust, but runs quite small in the waist, hip and upper thigh. The back of the dress blouses out a little more than I expected, but if you do not mind pulling the front of the dress down a little bit it looks fine. The length didn't work for me, so I am getting it hemmed up. I think a petite would have worked wonderfully, but I would have been worried about the fit in the waist/hip area. I love the adorable bird print and so will be keeping it since the fit issues are negotiable.
