Rated 4 out of 5┬áby anthropologist sizing issues, but nice dress
I ordered this dress in small and xs since I am usually a 4 but sometimes a 2. Well, neither size worked for me, they were both too small. I could not even zip the xs and the small was very tight in the bust and underarms - and I have a very small bust! Otherwise, this is a cute dress that seems well made. The bottom is a dark blue, not quite navy, of a soft cotton-ish material with a lining. The knit part is more vibrant orange than it looks online, but still quite nice. The bodice is unique and not itchy at all. It just fits too tightly!
I am giving this dress one more try by ordering a medium. I fear that even if the bust finally fits it may be oversized elsewhere, but the dress is so cute and wearable that it's worth a last try.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby melliroo unique dress for
I wish this dress looked right on me! The crocheted bodice is a fantastic color and contrasts nicely with the navy (dark chambray?) skirt. Unfortunately, this dress looks less than flattering on the short-waisted and somewhat endowed (32D) among us. The crocheting *really* accentuates the bust in a way that, at least to me, looked less than flattering. But the dress is so fun; I'm confident it'lll look fantastic on a different body type. For reference, I'm 5'6 and 124. The XS was too tight in the top, while the SM was still too tight, but w/ bigger arm holes.

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby AML44 Nice but not flattering and orange is almost neon
I was disappointed in this dress. It looks so lovely in the photo but is not flattering when on. I am slim (5'4" and 110 lbs) and the cut of the dress makes me look thick through the waist. Where the crocheted part meets the skirt needs to be a few inches higher or a few inches lower. The size S fit perfectly.
The colour of the orange is almost neon - not the rusty orange that appears in the photo on line.
On the plus side, the dress is very comfortable. Wish it had pockets!
