Rated 4 out of 5Â by shock now I just need somewhere to wear it . . .
This dress is very pretty! The fit is very flattering - I'm 5'3", 36-28-40, usually a 6-8 in dresses and I took an 8.
HUGE PRO: the waist actually hits in the right place! Not too high like so many Anthro dresses recently. I would say though it runs a touch small in the waist, as the 6 was a squeeze to zip up. The 8 is comfortable in the waist and just a teeny bit big in the shoulders/armpits, but I'm pretty short and pear shaped so it would probably be fine for most people.
The blue under-skirt is a few inches shorter than the lace. The blue skirt hits me an inch or 2 above the knee, and the lace hits just below the knee.
CON: I personally don't like the materials. They are all synthetic (except for the mesh), and the lace has a slight plastic-y feel to it compared to cotton or silk laces. Due to the materials the dress is insanely staticy - it stuck to my legs and also to itself. So while it is beautiful and flattering, I have to say it just doesn't have the nice feel of my Moulinette Soeurs party dress from several years back it's now hanging next to (which also has pockets! This dress does not). So, recommended, but stock up on static sheets.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by maggi27 Pretty but off the mark
I love the color combination of royal blue and black lace, but this dress failed to hit the mark for me. The hem at the bottom looked tawdry and the lace was not soft enough to hang elegantly. I liked this dress above the waist but that's not saying much. Perhaps a longer black slip would improve its appearance?
Sizing was accurate, I am 32B-26-36 and got the 2. At 5 5" tall, the blue material stopped a bit above my knee and the lace hit at the knee.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jlt10 Beautiful in person and perfect for cocktail
I ended up getting a different dress because I needed something a little less dressy, but I was super bummed I couldn't think of a place to wear this so I could justify the purchase. It is beautiful and the blue underlay and lace are definitely quality for the price.
