Rated 4 out of 5Â by Hpy2bmom I really like it
Wow. I disagree with the negative reviews. I love this dress. First I grabbed it because of the print. But then I fell in love with the fit. It's versatile: you can wear it tied in the front which makes the dress a very loose flowy summer tunic -- great for very casual or super hot days. Or, tied in the back which is more form fitting and very flattering. I did not find any weird bunching. So far I've worn it with black tights and motorcycle boots with a denim jacket or cashmere sweater on cooler days and received a million compliments. I feel great in it. Super chic and comfortable. I think it will be perfect for a June trip to Paris.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jetset What the heck GIVE it a TRY dress
Alright the version I purchased in store was slightly different. The hemline was NOT this drastic for starters. The fabric was a little stiff but honestly I loved the fit and the pattern. The supplied belt sucks I bought one of those big stretchy belts and MAN oh MAN did it look phenomenal. This dress is one meant to be belted. I have a bum and a large chest and it was really slimming. I'm very curvy and was pleasantly surprised how flattering it was. On a whim I tried it on and I'm glad I did. The fabric was NOT thin. I'd probably wear a slip underneath but it's not required.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SandyPaws The "They Thought of Everything" Dress
Wow. I'm a petite girl and this was my first time ordering a petite 0 online from Anthro that actually fit me. I bought it as my 4th of July outfit and I am really pleased. I just tried it on and I'm glad another reviewer told me about the whole belt deal--instead of wearing it like the model, I took the ends and wrapped them around myself to then tie in front, which gives the dress a very cute 50s vibe, since it makes the skirt a tiny bit fuller. I really like the length--just short enough to be interesting in front and show off my workouts, yet long enough in back that I don't have to worry I'm flashing anyone if it's a bit breezy outside. The ONLY thing I'm a little miffed about is that I specifically bought this dress because it was a combination of 4th-appropriate colors and also machine washable. The tag on the dress, however, disagrees with the latter, stating "Dry Clean Only." Being a college student, I'll probably ignore these directions and handwash it #it's 100% rayon#, but I'm still disappointed with Anthro for mismarking it online. Being rayon, it's not quite as soft as cotton, but it's got the perfect amount of structure while being cute and comfy. I was worried it might be a little sheer when I held it up to the light, but I tried it on with a hot-pink zebra-striped bra and the polka dots in my chest area barely betrayed a slight blush tone. Try it on! It just might be your new go-to dress.
