Rated 4 out of 5Â by aprilneverends nice summer dress
I just got this dress in mail today, so the review will be based on trying on, not on actual wearing. It is nice, effortless, breathable, comfortable dress. I like the moss color, I like the fact it can be versatile-dressed up or down. I do recommend wearing a belt-the waist line gets a little bit lost otherwise. Did I mention it is comfortable? I didn't want to take it off..it feels like a big flattering nice quality t-shirt. It holds its shape more or less when you bend or move fast-the top part doesn't flap too much which was my concern when deciding whether to purchase. The main reason I've decided to write a review is to mention sizing-I always find it helpful when reading reviews myself. So, I am almost always XS in Anthro sizes, and always regular lenght-but here I've decided to go with small petite (knowing Bordeaux runs smaller than most Anthro brands)-and am very pleased with this decision.
Sorry for the quality of images, the best I could do with the light.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lindinha Great Leisure Dress!
Ref: XS (runs TTS)
Length - Good! At 5'7 the hem surpasses my ankles by almost a half-inch. I have to pair this maxi with heels of that height or more; no flats.
Comfort - Soft, lightweight, feels great on the skin, ease of movement, feels like your gliding.
Con: I cannot say this maxi dress has the same elegant & elongated look as in the Vietnam photos. Furthermore the profile shot isn't that flattering -in fact, I'd say it's a bit frumpy looking from the side. But comfort, usefulness & reasonable price won me over.
Overall I do recommend it but not by a huge margin.

This dress doesn't look like much on the hanger but I thought it was worth a try because I love a maxi and the olive green is pretty. I like how this looks like two pieces and loved how the top draped down and split in the back. The problem for me was the material. It takes a near-perfect figure to wear this jersey-like fabric. I didn't think that it looked unflattering but then I took a picture. It does tend to show any imperfection...so be careful. The length was as shown on the model....maybe a touch longer but could easily work with a small heel. And I would most definitely recommend wearing a belt because a little extra something would go a long way. I couldn't say that I wouldn't recommend, it just didn't work for me. The green has a "heathered" look and I would say that the pockets are nicely placed. In my opinion, $138 is a bit on the high side.
