Â by rockabillyqueen a bum rap?
Maybe I got lucky in the mark down room with this little dress, and found a "gooder", but I didnt encounter any of the fit issues with it. It's comfy and seems infinitely versatile. Perhaps since its been in the store for a while it was tried on so many times that the waist band stretched and became comfortable? Its really an effortless little dress and will pack and travel well. Great for fall with boots, and can be dressed up nicely with heels. I always look for pieces that double duty as travel and event wear as I am a musician and have to watch baggage allowances. This one fits the bill perfectly! For reference, I am 34 C and hover around 110 lbs. I tried on the small.
It really is a very pretty dress!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Naima A dress with promise, yet disappointing
I was attracted to this pretty dress with the Issa-inspired bodice; the green (light teal really, not "moss") and blue colors are lovely as well. The sizing is the worst problem. I am a reliable medium at size 8 top and size 6 or 29 jeans. The torso of the dress was tight, no grace here, and the thin, cheap-seeming material showed every bulge! Ghastly! The low waistband needs some stretch, and it kept flipping awkwardly. This dress design has such promise, but too many corners were cut. The medium would best fit a woman maybe 110-115 lbs, size 4-6 top, basically a small. I nearly always guess well and am pleased when ordering from Anthro online, but this dress is "off". Dear Anthro, I feel "ripped off" of the shipping charges. You should offer free shipping like Nordstroms.

I tried this on in the store, and left Anthro without it.
I have a small waist, yet found the band a bit snug. Comfort wise I could have dealt with it, but it squeezed my spare tire both OVER the band, and under it. I looked like a lumpy bumpy mess.
I guess I could have tried sizing up, but the top part of the dress did fit me, so I figured a medium would have just been too big .
I think if you're a slim pickle with little to no extra padding, this dress will look fantastic on you. But as someone who is not in tip top shape, I found this dress rather unforgiving.
Too bad, it would have made a fantastic basic dress, and the fabric is super comfortable. Sadly, the band just messed the rest of the dress up.
