chazz - Review from Anthropologie
Eh...This is so much prettier on the model than it was on me, and it had me wondering if they sent me the same product that they put on the model. In real life, the sleeves were humongous - wide and unflattering. If that was the only issue, I would have taken it to a dressmaker and had the sleeves taken in and tapered more. But that wasn't just it. The waist is too high, and the pleats in the skirt are not sewn evenly, making you appear heavier and thicker in the waist. The skirt doesn't lie flat by the zipper in the back and causes a weird bump by the butt... I absolutely loved the color moss - it was rich and wintery and the lace was decent quality - soft and not scratchy at all, and the lining was super comfy. I really wished this dress worked for me, but there were too many negatives for me to consider keeping it. Please recreate this dress so it appears on everyone like it appears on the model and then I'll try again!

Lovely dress, so comfyI just got this dress today and I intend to wear it for my very private, very casual wedding ceremony. The color (moss) is a deep green, very reminiscent of the holidays. The sleeves are soft and comfortable, and they come almost to my elbows. Pleats aren't usually flattering on me, as I'm wide in the hips, but these look really nice. The bust fits well, no pulling or gaping. The dress is longer than it appears in the photo, but I'm OK with that. It probably does run big, since the other dress I ordered in the same size was too snug. I will wear this dress for a special day, and for many other special days to come. It seems very versatile.

Very Pretty Dress!!This dress is so good and I am loving it!! I loved the red color. The color is very pretty. Yes, I agree all others reviews on this dress regarding size. Usually I order size 2 or XS in Regular. But in this dress, XXSP fits me perfect!!I loved this dress!! Thanks other reviewers for suggestions on the dress size.
SweetAlissum - Review from Anthropologie
Cute but not enoughI really wanted a forest green dress for the holidays. I love lace dresses as they are timeless and work for every season. I was hoping this would be exactly what I wanted through winter, but alas. I have a slightly long torso and a full bust. With an hourglass figure, the waist hitting near the actual smallest part of my waist is very important. My chest can take over if a garment is too high waisted and unfortunately this is the case here. I ended up looking far too top heavy, especially with the neckline. I don't have broad shoulders, but this garment made me look as if I do, and I'd blame that on the high neckline. I would consider this on sale, since a wide belt can help minimize the main problem I have, but not at full price. I hope in the future, larger sizes (I took a M here, but generally wear a 10) can move the waist down just an inch or two to accommodate fuller busts.
isabel378 - Review from Anthropologie
Too Big + Too Small = Not as ExpectedI do not even know to where to begin with this dress except to say that although it is cute, its not what I expected. The dress is a lovely vibrant red, yet the lace is much more casual than it appears. The dress is more reminiscent of picnic attire than the dressy casual that I was looking for. The fit of the dress is decent yet leaves something to be desired: it is both roomy, yet tight across my bust (38 D) and shoulders. Through the hip the dress was just too flowy; it flared out too much and bunched weirdly around the waist. I am a petite curvy girl, and typically wear a LP in Anthropologie dresses; therefore, I thought the fit would be great, but this was not the case. I had to return it because I could not justify keeping this ill fitting dress.
