Rated 3 out of 5Â by Alnilam Pretty dress, too bad it's a tent
I spotted this dress in the sale room and loved the color and the pretty lace. I am pretty uniformly a medium (8/10) but I grabbed both a medium and a small since it looked a little big. Well, the medium was HUGE. And the small was HUGE. I tried the small with a belt hoping that would lend it some shape but there was actually so much excess fabric that belting it caused it to poof out unattractively. I finally tried an XS and that looked okay (although still a bit big!) in the body, but was a bit too short, hitting several inches above my knee. I am a teacher and I like to be able to wear my pretty dresses to work. The length problem was further complicated by the fact that, as others have noted, the lining extends PAST the hem of the lace (not pictured in the product photos!) which looks like a design flaw. I would want to hem the lining so it matches the lace, and would therefore lose even more length. Unfortunately a pass for me, and a bit absurd that ladies smaller than 8/10 are going to be sized out of this dress!

I ordered the dress in the pale pink and it's gorgeous. The dress does run large. I am typicaly a 6-8 and I ordered an XS petite. I am 5'3", 130 pounds and it hits just above my knee.
The dress is full in the bottom, but that works well for my fuller figured bottom. If you are super skinny, this may not work for you. The top is true to size.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by showmethedeal Versatile, comfortable little dress
Pros: This is a great little dress. Glad I ordered the regular as the length comes just to the knee. It could be dressed up or down. It is generously cut, so order a full size down. Great for pear shaped ladies, like myself. I am so pleased with my first anthropologie clothing purchase for me!
Cons: The lining hangs lower than the lace, so I will have to shorten the lining. (Hence, the 4 star rating.) The dress is so worth the effort.
