Rated 3 out of 5Â by addicted2anthropologie Tiered Pointelle Sweater Dress
This dress is so cute on the model, but sadly did not work on me. First, it was terribly itchy on me! Even with the lining, I would not be able to stand it for more than a few minutes. The dress is also very short. Even on my five foot frame it was well above the knee. It runs quite small, so you may want to size up because there is no give to it at all. The lining runs tight, too. I think this dress will look best on someone who is built like the model wearing it... tall and thin, with a smaller chest. The color is really pretty for fall, and will look really great with a pair of brown tights and boots. I wish I could've made it work...

I tried on the small in-store. Color is as represented on the website. I usually take a S or XS in Anthro dresses and grabbed the small in this as I'm a bit hippy and was sure the dress would just accentuate it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it didn't. The slip underneath is too short for the length of the dress. The straps are attached at the shoulders. The reason I didn't buy it: the knit is way too itchy for me. It's a shame, because with a better knit and longer slip it would be perfect. I wonder if washing it would help?

Rated 2 out of 5Â by asta17 This is not an online exclusive - not sure why so many items on the site say that and they are in the stores. Anyway, I was very excited about this dress, but was disappointed when I tried it on. The color is exactly true to the photo. Doesn't really go with my skin tone but it's a nice color for fall. The material is somewhat thin and will definitely stretch out - the shoulders had been stretched from the store hanger. The shoulders are already extremely wide as it is - it's more boatneck than it appears in the photos, and I could barely keep the sleeves up. There was extra material under the arms, so I'd say that the shoulders and sleeves are an odd fit. The back is extremely low, and nearly showed my bra. This is not practical in my opinion - a sweater dress with sleeves that has an entirely open back. I have fairly sensitive skin, and I found the sleeves (which are unlined) to be itchy. There is a detachable slip that is super thin and cheap. It's much shorter than the dress, so tall girls wearing this with bare legs will feel really exposed. I tried the XS (5'1, 32A, 105 lbs), and I thought the length was perfect, just above the knee. I absolutely love the idea of the tiers with scalloped hems, but the first tier didn't quite lay right on me (perhaps the petite size would fix this) and created an illusion of extra width at the hips. Overall, the concept of the dress is great but the quality isn't there and the fit leaves something to be desired.
