Rated 4 out of 5Â by ellenphant FYI for Petites
This dress is beautiful, and very well made. There are a couple of other reviews detailing the fit/material of the dress but I still felt I needed to submit a review about the length of the dress. I am not sure who is measuring the dresses for the website, but unless Anthro cuts a couple of inches off the dresses prior to producing them, the person needs a serious lesson on how to use a measuring tape. The length has been very off for many of the items on the website, so I should know better...but I still ordered the petite because it's listed as 36.25 inches long. I don't expect it to be 100% exact and expect some margin of error especially with different sizes but I ordered the petite 2 and the dress is 32.75 inches long, with the lining only being 30.5 inches long. It looks like a kids dress and I couldn't pick something off the ground without possibly getting arrested. Granted, I am on the edge of petite and regular at 5'4'' but I need to warn others of similar height not to try petite sizing (esp. since it's online only and you're most likely paying for shipping too) unless a super short dress is the look you're going for. Picture attached.
Off to try the regular sizing because it is very pretty and the colors are beautiful.

This actually looks better in person. I tried on a size 8 which is my normal size, and it was perfect! I ultimately didn't get this dress because I liked the Chrysanthemum Tea Dress more. (Which you can see hanging behind me.) But if you have a big chest like me (36DD), it surprisingly fits very well.

I thought this dress was cute. Very nice, heavy fabric. The fit was snug but omfortable. I found it a tad short but not off-putting. For $230, I would have liked some pockets. I'll wait for a sale.
