Rated 5 out of 5
Â by Annette91 I had conflicting feelings about this dress after I ordered it online, I began to think i may be developing feelings of regret. But once the dress arrived I began to think about keeping it. I had to make another return and brought this to anthro with me in case I decided to make up my mind and return it. I brought it into the dressing room and paired it with a couple long necklaces. That was that. The dress was amazing and I just need to keep it. Pairing this with accessories really made the difference for me. I'm very happy with my purchase. I ordered the xxs. Like other viewers noted theres some gaping in the bust area, particularly under the armpit, this made for some bra visibility; but if you feel ok with it I would go braless this this dress as I think a strapless bra may be visible via the arm holes. I cannot wait to wear this dress on my trip to Hawaii next month, this dress was made for warm weather and sand!

If you are petite, this is the maxi dress for you! I am 5'1" tall and wear a size 34DD bra. I purchased the PM. This dress fit me perfectly. I've read the other reviews and what are pros for some folks are cons for me. If you're short, the empire waist gives the illusion of a longer leg. Because I have a full bust the bodice offers coverage in all the right places. The V-Neck in is placed perfectly. I always wear a full coverage bra and it doesn't peek out anywhere. The length is perfect. I can wear the dress with flat sandals, but still wear it with a heel without sacrificing style or looking goofy. The sheerness of the dress as well as the short slip has been mentioned as a negative. I live in Atlanta and during the Summer visit the Caribbean often. The airiness of the dress is perfect for me. I highly recommend this dress if you're petite.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by petiteshop Mismatched pattern
I wanted to love this dress. I am an XXS petite and I was happy find this in my size. When it came, I couldn't wait to try it on. What a disappointment. There is a seam down the middle of the top and the pattern was not well-matched. The diamond shapes were not symmetrically placed on my chest and it had the effect of making my boobs look lopsided! Also, this dress really doesn't have armholes. The back and front of the dress overlap to create the arm openings. I am small-bonded and small-chested and they just didn't cover me enough. However, with the pattern mismatch, there was no way I was keeping this dress.
