Rated 5 out of 5Â by Anthrolovie Fantastic Dress!
I truly can't be happier with this purchase. I loved the texture, color, and pattern of this dress so decided to take a chance and order online. I'm 5'2.5'' and 112 pounds with a 26-27inch waist. My usual size 0 (I like things a little fitted) was perfect, so I'd say this dress runs true to size. The color of the pink is soft and feminine and the texture of the fabric is lush, soft and has a pleasant weight. It contours well, the pockets are SUCH a bonus for little things like lip gloss, and the pattern is flattering. I thought about purchasing the belt also, but after trying the dress on by itself, will probably be wearing it without one. Definitely now one of my favorites pieces in the closet.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JuneBug77 Beautiful fit & fabric
The fabric used for this dress is amazing. It's a thicker tweed-type of material, that can be a bit on the heavy side. But with the way they've cut the dress, including those pleats that give it poof, the dress feels light, not stiff. And I'm not usually someone who goes for poofy dresses, either. But this cut is quite flattering. The waistline is cut on the higher side (which I like) and definitely looks best when paired with a belt. I'm a 34C and the bodice is a snug fit. Would suggest ordering up a size if you have a bigger bust. Because of the fabric I think you could wear this dress to both formal and casual occasions. Personally, I'm planning to wear this dress over and over this wedding season!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by LinzTheSwimmer Fluorescent pink, not red, rear of skirt poufs out
It runs half-a-size smaller. I ordered my usual size 4 (5â 6â, 134 lbs, 36 C). The bodice & chest were snug but not overly uncomfortable. Iâm always a 4/6 in Anthro dresses, including H.D. in Paris dresses (I own one). The problem is that the pleating in the rear of the skirt does NOT lie flat but âpoufsâ out, and the front pleating is less severe however âbags-outâ to a lesser degree. Iâm having the pleats tailored for $35 to lie flat. Lastly- this is no âred motifâ, but straight-up fluorescent pink. Not coral or carnation pinkâ¦HOT pink. It had me seriously contemplating whether or not I would return it b/c of this, but the texture is akin to nubby tweed and I liked that. It has a vintage menswear twist. After my tailor pinned down the pleats, I felt the dress had more potential. Planning to rock this w/ a royal blue cropped cardi or blue bib necklace and blue flats. Not many colors go with 80âs neon pink. Might go with kelly green and yellow as well.
