Rated 5 out of 5┬áby hautehippiemom gorgeous fabric
I bought this dress because I loved the fabric and the midi length, and I thought it looked good on me at the time. I took it home and decided that the bust is not cut large enough. The gathers give your chest a weird shape, if you are larger than a "B" cup. I am sad because it is such a beautiful dress, but the other thing that is making me return this is that it is 100% polyester. This is a summer dress, and polyester is very hot in the summer because it does not breathe.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby gnomelover Droopy situation
I saw this dress and immediately pushed the order button. In fact, I bought it in two sizes so I could make sure and find the perfect fit. I tried it on and was immediately in love. I swirled around in front of the mirror. The arms are perfect. I tried on the smallest size I bought, which was an 8 and it was still big. I definitely could have fit in a 6 comfortably.
Unfortunately, I began noticing some flaws. The dress hits at a weird spot, but I was willng to overlook it. The dress is extremely bright in person, another thing I can overlook. But my thirteen year old daughter came in and asked, "mom what is going on with your chest?". I looked in the mirror and that's when I saw it, the dress has this odd bunchy material that dangles from each breast. It looks like a weird, well, you know what.... After breastfeeding two children, I do not need a dress that adds weird unfortunate things in addition to what nature and time have all ready contributed. Back it goes.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby no1anthroaddict Worth Giving A Try!
This is stated to be an online exclusive, however, it was the first thing I saw when I walked into my local Anthropologie and it was "love at first sight"! Love the bright, Bohemian print and the beaded neckline! Other reviewers are stating this is more of a midi dress. I guess it depends on your height; at only 5'4" this was a nice length maxi that I could wear high platforms or wedges with and not worry about having to have hemmed, like most of the other maxis. I did have similar issues to the reviewer who commented on a strange, droopy fit in the bust, but I think this is because the dress I tried on was too large for me. They only had it in a Size 12 and a Size 8 in the store. The 12 was too large all over; meanwhile the 8 was humorous with the bust part coming up to practically my collarbone, so I think a 10 would work; not too loose, not too tight. I think it will be worth a try!
