A size 16 girl with ample bosoms am I. I had concerns that this dress would fit horribly across my chest, but it is actually one of the best purchases I've made from Anthro in a size XL. Silky feeling fabric & if I could hug this color, I would.

This is the perfect late Spring dress you can throw on and be out of the house in a heartbeat! The ruching cinches your waist for a nice curve effect. The high-low hem is not obnoxious and is very flattering. You can't beat the price either! (Finally, anthro is coming down on the price of jersey dresses.)
The only thing that I'm not crazy about is the positioning of the ruched waist - it accentuates my little stomach pouch from the side view. I swear it's not that big, lol! (Unless I just can't admit I'm getting older, haha.)
Anyways, for reference, I'm 5'5", 100lbs, 34A and 25 in jeans and I tried on a XS. :)

I always find it difficult to find a dress that is flattering on my 5'4'', 124 lb, fairly muscular frame. After reading the other reviews, I decided to go with the Small Petite in blue and make my very first purchase on Anthropologie.com! Boy am I ever happy with this dress!
I have a pretty small chest (34B) so I was a little nervous that it'd be loose there, but I have no problems with it at all! The elastic waist band hits perfectly at my natural waist and is SO FLATTERING. I can't believe it. The wide shoulder straps are also super slimming on my wide shoulders, and the ruching just gives an overall slimming effect which I love. It's super comfy and I love that the neckline isn't too low nor is it too high - perfectly flirty with the flowy skirt.
I was also nervous about where the high-low hem would hit on my short, muscular legs. The high hits just above the knees, which makes it super cute, and the low isn't too low, just under the knees = PERFECT (I'm sure if I got the Small in Regular, it would've been too long - so short girls take note: Petite is your friend!). It actually gives a slimming effect to my muscular calves (no easy feat!!).
The material is also super soft and I can definitely style it up or down. This will definitely become my go-to dress when I feel like I have nothing to wear!
