Rated 5 out of 5 by MyAnthro A beautiful skirt!
I just bought this skirt in the store after seeing it online. It's beautifully crafted and so unique. I'm 5'9", 135lbs, and normally wear a size 6. I ended up having to go up to a 10 in this skirt. The 6 didn't zip, the 8 almost zipped but was still too tight and too short, the 10 fit perfect in size and length. But hey, what's in a number.
The store did not have the Mantilla sweater to try on with it and most of what I did try on just didn't do the skirt justice. You really need something simple and short enough to show off the skirt. I think the Mantilla sweater would do that, but I'm reluctant to order it. $98 seems a bit high, but I'll probably cave. Navy is definitely the color to go with. And I'll probably pair my brown suede knee-high boots with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jenny Not that flattering
I always buy a size up with straight skirts bc I am curvy on the bottom. So instead of my usual Anthro 6, I got an 8. The 8 fit. I am 5'6" and 130-135. But it hit me just at the fatter part above my knee (You can see that even the model in the picture has it hitting at a wierd place on her knee too). It's not short enough to be a mini skirt but not long enough either. The quality is awesome, but the crazy pattern just made me look heavy on the bottom.

by rabbitlover Oh a classic anthro skirt! I?m typically 0~2 in skirts and purchased this in a 2 (regular) - fit tts (5?3, 115lb)! If in between size, I would suggest go with the larger of your usual size. This skirt is well made, thick material, closes with a side zipper, no side pockets, 2 pockets in the back of the skirt. The embroidery is very pretty/vibrant, pattern looks just like pictured online and continues to the back. Length is on the short side @ ~2? above the knees. I also tried a 4 but it was too loose and didn?t provide extra length. I purchased this in the end of August with my birthday discount and have already worn it couple of times. Looks wonderful with sandals and a simple top/cardi and I can?t wait to wear it with boots when the weather cools down. It pairs well with many color options and it?s a multi-season skirt, well worth the price. A must have!
