Rated 5 out of 5Â by lrmarie Great Dress
Quick stats for reference: 5'6", 130 lbs, 34C and usually a size 4 or right inbetween a small and medium in most anthro dresses.
My local store (Denver) had a bunch of these dresses in stock despite the "online exclusive" label - I so glad because I probably wouldn't have ordered correctly! The small fit well - not too tight at the waist (the tie is adjustable and helps if you have a tummy like I do) and a good length (hit a inch above my knees). BUT - the top was a little bit too blousy (and I have a bigger chest than the model in the shot and still did not fill it out very well). The XS was perfect - didn't overemphasize my stomach, wasn't too short and fit my torso/chest much better (still blousy but not awkward looking). I have never been an xs in any of their dresses, so I'm afraid smaller chested ladies may not love this dress.
One design note that isn't shown in the pictures: there is a cut-up on each side - kind of like the scoop of a shirt-dress. You can vaguely see it in the back shot of the green/grey version. It's not a huge scoop and I liked it - added a little bit of flair (especially to the navy version).
It feels and lays like a typical viscose/rayon mix. The green/grey was vivid and very pretty but I went with the navy because I can throw a lot of my different colored cardigans/blazers on over it.
Great dress - easily dressed up and down. I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Joybox Lovely simple dress for summer, but too large.
I normally wear a size 0/0P/XS/XSP in Anthro clothing. I really wanted to love this dress, but when I tried on the XS, it was much too large. The armholes hung low and showed my bra, and the overall blouson effect was a bit frumpy on my petite frame. It also hit me mid-knee, which was a bit awkward looking...an inch or two shorter would have looked fresher. I wish the store had a petite size for me to try on. I will try to order this online or check another store because the quality is great and the overall look is very cute. For reference, I am 5'1" and about 107 lbs. with a B-cup bust.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Moon620 Great simple dress!
I agree with the other reviewer completely regarding the fit- I grabbed a small in the store to try on (130lbs, 36C, usually a 4-6 in dresses), and while it was an ok fit, it was a bit too loose in the top and you could see too much of my bra through the armholes. The XS was perfect on- still had a loose-ish fit, but covered much better and was very flattering! I love the pockets and the fact that this dress looks very easy, but can definitely be adapted for dressy occasions as well. I would say order a size smaller than you think for this one!
