I fell in love with this dress online and hoped it would be just as pretty in person - and it was. The design is so original and the material is a beautiful silk. The openings for the belt were a little hard to find - but I think that was the point. It's a really unique look that ties in the front but is loose in the back. You thread the tie through the holes so that it is around your waist inside the dress in the back. it also looks great without the tie. My only drawback is that the last button on the dress is a little too high - you can reveal a lot accidentally if you are not careful - especially if you wear it with the tie. I might sew a little tack so it doesn't ride up. Other than that it's one of my favorite dresses I've bought on Anthro. I'm a very curvy woman, size 12/14 with a 40inch chest and the L fit wonderfully. It's designed to be loose but not drape like a tent.

This is an amazing dress! Looks great with black Capri leggings and black patent wedges! I prefer it without the belt but it looks cute either way. As previous viewer stated, the last button is a bit high and revealing. If tacked down no leggings are necessary. A lace under slip that peeks out may do the trick for those more conservative types. Highly recommend though, especially for curvy gals!

I knew the print was going to be beautiful. It is even more vibrant, detailed and elegant in person. The silk is lovely too, airy and comfortable. I was worried when I put it on at first because the belt holes are low on the hip, like a drop waist fit, which doesn't flatter me at all (I have a small waist and big hips - 32D-26-39). But I quickly discovered it's not a problem. Normally the belt goes behind the front of the dress and through a couple of (invisible) holes at the sides, tying in the front - it doesn't touch the back. But you could also easily wear this belt-less for a very loose, flowy fit (I like to drape the belt around my neck instead), or you could tie the belt around the whole dress to cinch it at a high waist or at your most flattering waist level. So, you can wear it 3 different ways, depending on what works best on you. You can't go wrong with this. I didn't have the problem that others had with the last button being too high - I'm only 5'0, though. LOVE this dress. Easy to wear and absolutely beautiful, even with flats. It will be perfect for my trip to Spain!
