I love me an animal print and this zebra dress is no exception. I wear an 8/10 in dresses. I bought this in a 10, because I would rather things be loose than tight on my body. The 10 was huge! I have a pretty tiny waist and larger hips, so I think I will size down to a 6 in this dress (which is ridiculous because I am by no means a size 6 in anything else).
I was really happy that this dress was a breathable cotton and not polyester like everything else Anthro seems to be making these days. The dress has pockets and is adorable. I think it has a fair price tag. Definitely a good addition to the wardrobe, as long as there is not a lion all ready in there ;) (okay my inner child could not resist).

This dress is really fantastic. Along with being quirky and flattering, its 100% cotton and machine washable, which lately seems hard to find at anthro.
As every other review has said, size down! If you own/have tried on the Two Wheeler dress from 2 years ago also by porridge, this dress fits exactly the same way. I have a size 10 wheeler dress which is very fitted in the bust (36ddd) and waist on me (in a good way), and I'm usually a 12-14. With this dress, I wanted a looser fit, so I opted for the 14. I would have done much better with a 12, the 14 is on the too baggy side and the armholes are too big. I measured the waist on the 14 before washing, 19" flat. I love the dress so much and I didn't want to bother with an exchange, so I just threw it in a hot dryer to shrink it and wear it with a belt.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby livydivy I like this dress!
I do like this dress a lot. There are zebras! I'm a sucker for prints with animals on them, so I ordered this right away. The material is a light cotton, but works for fall with a blazer. The fit is a little off - I found the sleeves and shoulders to be a little big, and the waist a little snug for me. There is elastic, so the waist fits fine, but there is pulling on the buttons. That is usually the issue for me - I LOVE shirt dresses, but can never buy them because they pull open at the chest or waist. As this dress is black, I decided to just sew the placket shut across the area that was pulling and that solved my problem!
