Rated 5 out of 5Â by Coupious Adorable, if a tiny bit narrow
I fell in love with this romper as soon as I saw it. It has the right amount of cheekiness to balance the fashion forward cut (and the open slit in the back), and I loved that. Upon its arrival, I was happy to find that its fit is just as expected. I'm quite high-waisted, and this fits nearly at my natural waist, so it might be wise to take note of that. At 5'5", the cropped length of the pants is just at my ankle, which makes the whole thing flattering and quite lovely. The one area where I would say this doesn't necessarily fit TTS, at least for the hourglassed ladies out there, is through the hips. They're just the tiniest bit snugger than the rest of the ensembles, but not so much the pockets stretch. In fact, the draping from the waist is done well enough that I don't think one can even see the snugness, though I do feel it. My shoulders tend to be the area where things are tight, and that was just fine, so I think the hips might be a little narrower than most Anthro items. However, I still think I'm keeping this little number, since it's pretty disguised.
The other issue, of course, is that a silky jumper is less than practical for the winter. I was hoping this would be a little thicker than it is, but I've tried it on with tights underneath for warmth, as one would a dress, and I think that may save me. For me, a nude bra works under the open slit down the back (or something pretty and lacey for nights out), but keep that slit in mind, since there's no way to completely hide a bra in the back. I do think it will be cute with long cardigans and ankle boots, and that's my hope for making this practical in the next couple months. I have faith that it will then transition very easily into spring, especially with the bright and happy print on the black.

I am an anthropologie addict, and a total sucker for a good jumpsuit, and this is definitely my favourite purchase in a while! I just love it. It fits me just like the model, and is completely flattering and awesome. Only complaint is the open back is difficult to disguise a bra underneath. I just wear a fitted navy tank underneath and it looks great! This item fit true to size for me, and was totally on par with other anthro product sizing.
