LV2EVOLVE - Review from Anthropologie
Fabulous!This dress truly is stunning and in great taste. You must lower your expectations about the quality and fit. The quality will naturally vary because of the types of materials used. Thus, there may be defects. It's an extremely delicate piece. The top portion is made out of a delicate mesh with embroidery woven into it. It can tear easily and become snagged. Think of the mesh on an ice skater's outfit. The skirt is a thin chiffon that can be snagged. Underneath the top portion is another woven band out of different material that loses its shape as you move.The fit depends on your bust size and height. If you're short and busty, size up in petites. You have to have a small bust size to fit this dress and the width of your upper waist matters. It's all about the fit of your torso and your height. I wouldn't worry about the hip area. Remember, the skirt is pleated and really can't be shortened without damaging the woven band of the dress. Expect to wear 3 inch heels if you're short (5'1'').All-in-all, you will feel at your best in this dress if you master the fit. Take care of it and enjoy! Unique piece!

this dress is a winthis dress is amazing!!!it's tts- i ordered it in a 6P & it fit like a glove. i'm 5'1-2 & it was still a bit long on me- but i sort of expected that.the cut is really forgiving & flattering. it's also incredibly comfortable. & the dress isn't sheer which is fantastic- so any color underthings work (ie: black)i love love LOVE this dress! it's just freaking gorgeous. that being said, i did end up returning it simply because it was too long. everything else about it was perfect- i just didn't see it being hemmed all that well & for $300 i need to justify every penny.

Radiant DressI ordered this immediately after seeing it online. I must say that even though Anthro offers petite sizing their dresses still do not normally fit me well. This dress was an exception. It's good quality. The embroidery is beautiful. The tan fabric the embroidery lays on is tanner than you may expect (I am Asian and it was darker than my skin). The waistline hit me perfectly. It was long but I was able to get it hemmed. It drapes and flows very well. The armhole does run to the edge of your "armpit line" so it seem to make my upper body look larger. It would be perfect on someone with good shoulders and slim upper body. Wore this to a wedding and got several compliments throughout the night.

if only!!!the dress is pretty, but the materials feel cheap. the bodice is very short; it only looks long on the models because they have itty bitties… i am 5'10"/ 120 lbs/ B cup, and it managed to somehow make my boobs look saggy & my hips wide even though I am pencil thin. It is also relatively short, hitting at the top of my foot which would force me to wear flats or sandals.I was apprehensive of the color, but the nude is very neutral and would suit a range of skin shades. The red/orange is very vibrant and much to my surprise didn't make my skin look splotchy. i was impressed with the comfort of the entire dress and the flow of the skirt. I would say its vanity sized and runs a bit big. if you're short and have no boobs it will look amazing. if you have a longer torso, more than raisins on an ironing board, or are over 5'7" i wouldn't recommend it.
Lindinha - Review from Anthropologie
Pretty Much FlawlessI'm 5'7 and this dress falls right at my ankles as it does the model. This is great because I was concerned it would be too long and I'd trip over the hem.The fitting is very precise. I'm a size 2 and this was exactly that - almost to a fault as I had difficulty getting it on and zipping it up.Once on, it's highly comfortable and the beige material is supremely vague and stretchy. You are safe to wear whatever color underneath (trust me).Finally it's very easy to move around in this dress.A++
