Rated 4 out of 5┬áby MissObsessive soft, comfy and pull together
I made a special trip to the nearest Anthro store last weekend to try on some of the stuff I've been eyeing for a while. I was planning on trying them on so that I'm certain about the size then order them online once they go on sale;) But this dress is just so cute that I can't resist!
The material is a thicker cotton which is very soft but not shapeless. It's has pockets which is always a plus. And I like the design on the neck line, not too much but low enough to show my collarbones, leaving the space for me to wear jewelry or scarf. Perfect for Autumn to wear with stockings and a pair of oxfords or flats. I can also imagine myself layering it with coats, scarf and boots in the winter. Very versatile!
Size wise: (for reference: I am 5' 2.5", 34D, 155 lb.)
I usually wear a m in most Anthro tops, so I grabbed the medium to try on. The top fits ok but the waste line is too low and the length is too long, making me looks even shorter. The store didn't have a mp so I tried s instead, and it's perfect! The waste line is just a bit above my natural waste line and the skirt hits about 2" above my knees. Very cute and appropriate for school. The top part is tighter but not uncomfortable and I actually prefer the slightly more fitted look since the bottom is kind of flared out already.
And I have to agree with the previous reviewer. We need more color for this awesome dress!

Nice dress, good material, really comfortable, runs a little large, like length (5'0, I bought XS in regular, an inch or two above my knees. Perfect for work. The grey color looks better in person. Three season's dress, need more colors.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby SweetieBird Very, very large and unstructured
I bought this dress in an extra small, which usually fits my small frame perfectly (I'm 5'5" and 115lbs).
This dress, however, was nowhere near as tailored as the pictures suggest. On the contrary, it's very, very roomy and sacklike. I had it tailored to look as it does in the pictures, because I ordered it online and could see it would be a great, casual dress when fitted properly. (I love it now.)
On the positive side, the material is very soft and of good quality. Just order about two sizes down if you want a tailored fit.
