ANON250 - Review from Anthropologie
Pretty, but fancy enough?After much struggle with sizes, I finally ordered this in a size 8 when it became available. (I usually take a 4 or 6 in most dresses at other stores -- I'm 5'5", around 128 lbs.) I think the dress actually fits pretty well. I hope to wear it to a wedding in a few months (more on this in a minute) and will decide a few weeks prior whether to take it in slightly. The issue I'm having is whether it's fancy enough for a wedding. I love the copper brocade, but the blue looks akin to a denim, so it's sort of a mix of two styles.

Love this dress, but had to size up...I tried 3 different sizes before getting this right, but the dress is beautiful and it was worth the effort. I normally take a 4-6P in dresses, but had to take an 8P because of my broad back.The colors are outstanding and the fit, once I got the correct size for me, is good. I am 5"1/2" and it's a little above my knees. Hope to wear it to a party soon!

No lining, too small on topThe reviews were so good that I ordered this dress a second time after my initial order was cancelled due to back order. It looks just as it does in the photograph, beautiful colors, but the fit was all wrong. I'm 5'4", 125lbs, 34-26-36 and ordered the size 4. The bottom was too wide yet I couldn't even zip up the back; so weird. I was also disappointed that the skirt is not lined.

As much as I loved this dress.....I loved the quality and colors of this dress. Its true to the photo but the fit was very awkward. I ordered 2 sizes just to be sure and they both had to go back. Very disappointed as I LOVED the look.

Stunning dressClassic shape and a rich material in color and shine. I'm usually a size 6 or 8, and had ordered both to try for sizing. Oddly enough the two sizes fit pretty much the same! I did not find it too loose or baggy around the hips and actually prefer it doesn't hug the body too tightly.
