Â by roxy Incredibly flattering
This is one of those rare dresses that seems to flatter nearly every body type. I am tall with an hourglass shape and a larger bust. My friend with me is shorter, with a straight shape and smaller bust. This dress looked equally amazing on both of us. Like most Lilka dresses, I found that my normal size medium was too big (roomy through the shoulders and stomach in my case) so I went down to a size small. It hits just above the knee on my 5'8" frame and hugs every curve beautifully. I'm 34-28-38 with a 34D bust. This dress is low-cut yes which makes it ideal for date night in my book. It's easy enough to pin the wrap bodice if you want more coverage for day. Best of all is that the baroque pattern and colors make this a 4-season dress in my book. Right now I'm wearing it with espresso tights and suede mid-calf boots. I just hope this dress will last through a million times through the washing machine, because I plan to wear it that much.

I purchased this in the floral and the colors are beautiful. The dress runs generous but not sloppy. I have a large bustline and waist and it fits well. I wear an 8 with a 34DD bust. I got the medium and it is roomy. The material is soft, like a nightgown but not sheer. It is very low cut but with a lace cami it would be work appropriate. I am 5'2" and it hits at my knee. For a fit like the picture I would need a petite but knee length is better for me. It is pretty with bare legs and strappy shoes or tights and boots. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by VishnuRocks The MOST flattering dress you'll ever wear.
If your body type looks great in a sharply-defined Empire-waistline cut, then YOU MUST BUY THIS DRESS. This is absolutely the MOST FLATTERING dress you will ever wear. To put it mildly, I'm going to train an eagle eye on ANY designs this maker comes up with in the future! PER SIZING: just wanna say THANKS to people who've reviewed this item before. Y'all are 100% correct --when in doubt, go with the slightly smaller size. I was torn between size S and M; based on customer reviews, I went with the S and IT IS PERFECT. ONE QUALIFICATION: if you have a larger chest, you may find this dress to be VERY low cut. Potential solutions in my opinion: 1.) save this dress for special occasions; or 2). take a "tack stitch" (a tiny stitch on the backside of the dress) at the bodice to force the neckline to stay closed on you; or 3.) wear a solid black camisole/tank top underneath the dress -- to raise the neckline to a more modest level. I'm going with option #3; I'll be wearing the dress with black tights so an extra sliver of black at the bodice will make the whole outfit look unified. Perfection! Thank you Anthropologie for carrying this exquisite little dress!
