Honestly I loved the idea of this dress, but I was really disappointed by it in person. I think if executed better it would have been an ace, but there are just problems with the fit.
As some of the other reviewers mentioned, the bottom is tight while the top is more loose. This was ok for me, but I have very little hips and I found it snug. For anyone with curves, I think it would have been very tight. I'd recommend sizing up if that's the case.
However, my main issue with the dress is the top portion. It just doesn't fit right; the armholes are kinda big, and something about the fabric above where it meets the peplum just sort of lumps and flops. You can see this in my picture, but really also in the second model shot as well (though they hide it well!) No matter how I positioned, stretched, tugged - the lumpiness was still there. Totally unflattering.
Shame it didn't work out - back to the rack it went.

This dress looks fantastic on and for anyone with a slight tummy the peplum design is perfect. The only drawback, as you can see in the picture, is gaping near the arm holes that can best be fixed by taking up the shoulders. The material is light and the lining helps the dress fall smoothly around a snug, but not tight,fitting skirt. I am 5'2" and 118 lbs, with a medium to large bust and a medium was perfect except for a small gape of material near the armholes. The saleswoman said she used two sided tape to keep the arm holes down before she got hers altered at the shoulders. I would not let the armhole issue deter me from buying this lovely, slightly retro, extremely comfortable dress. It's now my favorite LBD!

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby anthropologie123 perfect
I had my eye on this dress online and had to try it on in the store. I was a little skeptical on the mid ruffle part however was pleasantly surprised at how great it fit. I am 5'7 / size 2 and bought the XS. I have a small bust and it had just the right amount of cleavage and fit great under the arms, not big at all. The dress is fitted and extremely flattering. I have a small waist however a large behind and it balanced great. On the model online it appears the dress is big - it is tight unless you want it looser I would suggest to go up a size. I am planning to wear it to a gala, perfect dress for a special night out.
