I always find it difficult to find a dress that is flattering on my 5'4'', 124 lb, fairly muscular frame. After reading the other reviews, I decided to go with the Small Petite in blue and make my very first purchase on Anthropologie.com! Boy am I ever happy with this dress!
I have a pretty small chest (34B) so I was a little nervous that it'd be loose there, but I have no problems with it at all! The elastic waist band hits perfectly at my natural waist and is SO FLATTERING. I can't believe it. The wide shoulder straps are also super slimming on my wide shoulders, and the ruching just gives an overall slimming effect which I love. It's super comfy and I love that the neckline isn't too low nor is it too high - perfectly flirty with the flowy skirt.
I was also nervous about where the high-low hem would hit on my short, muscular legs. The high hits just above the knees, which makes it super cute, and the low isn't too low, just under the knees = PERFECT (I'm sure if I got the Small in Regular, it would've been too long - so short girls take note: Petite is your friend!). It actually gives a slimming effect to my muscular calves (no easy feat!!).
The material is also super soft and I can definitely style it up or down. This will definitely become my go-to dress when I feel like I have nothing to wear!

A wonderful, versatile knit dress! The high-low hem is subtle, so it doesn't look like a costume. The dress is simple in an elegant way. You can wear it alone, and it doesn't look plain. The top is loose but not baggy, and the waist has nice smocking, so it's quite flattering. You can dress this up or down in dozens of ways, with jewelry, belts, jackets, cardigans. I got it in two colors. A wonderful wardrobe staple!

This dress is beautiful and effortless. I'm a college student, and it's so easy to throw on and wear anywhere. I've worn it by itself with sandals, or with a blazer and wedges; it looks beautiful in every situation. It also gives my somewhat straight figure more shape. I'm in love!
