jne4 - Review from Anthropologie
cute but not for all body typesI'm typically XS or S in Anthro dresses, and bought the black & white paisley print in XS. From the description and the photos, I couldn't tell that it had a gathered elastic waist or I probably would not have purchased it online. I've found that I have to try on dresses that have an elastic waist in different sizes to find the right fit. This dress was no different. I'm short-waisted and still felt that the waist was too high. I think sizing up would help with this. Also, the chest felt tight and the material has no "give", so this may fit someone with a smaller chest.

Perfect for $39.99I am surprised at the original price of this dress, but think it is a legit find for $39.99. I bought this one at sale price in the black with white print fabric. I got my typical size (XS) but believe you could size up one size if your size is sold out. (Dress has an easy breezy vibe that might work with a blousy fit). Back of dress has elastic (no zipper, pull it on overhead). Waist cinch belt is simple fabric but can be removed/replaced with a more structured belt, if you prefer. The lining is a cheaper fabric, and does get a lil twisty when pulling it on, as it is not sewn in to the dress (attached with those shoulder snap things). I think this is a cute day dress/work dress at a H&M or Forever 21 price but with better quality and anthro style. Worth it.
MelbourneGal - Review from Anthropologie
Needs an extra inchThis is a lovely shirt dress. There is a detachable slip with adjustable straps and a nice black ribbon sash belt. I tried to order the black but for some reason it wasn't available to send to Australia so I went for the black and red. While it is a lovely dress (wrinkle free after travelling halfway round the world), on me it needs an extra inch because it hits just at the fat part at the top of my knees :( I will keep it because returns from Australia are too hard to do, but unless I find a miracle knee slimming exercise it won't get as much wear as I would have liked.
alexette - Review from Anthropologie
I prefer it tied up topFirst off, the dress is nice. Plenty long for a 5'9 gal to wear to the office, and neutral enough (in black) to wear often and to play to different styles. The slip is way slimmer than the dress, so you may choose to remove or replace it. The fabric does wrinkle easily, and after reading one of the reviews I'm afraid to hand-wash it.Initially I thought the style was a bit too modern/minimal for my taste, but when I tied the little cords at the neck it looked perfect. Curiously, none of the photos online show this pretty styling option! Doing this creates a flattering keyhole neckline. With the bow, the keyhole, and the little row of buttons, it became just cutesy enough for me, while still looking mature and modern. I purchased this piece at the store and didn't realize it came with a sash as mine was missing, so make sure to double check for that!

Looks cute, feels lovely on, wears badlyI was so excited when I bought this in black. It was a nice silky feeling dress that could work for many occasions. Comfy sit, sophisticated style. Then I wore it.It wrinkles every which was you stand, sit, move, and just looks an absolute mess shortly after wearing it out. I was embarrassed by the end of the evening when I only had it on for a few hours. I'm going to return it. Which is a shame, because I really loved it.
