phyllisdiller - Review from Anthropologie
AmazingI didn't buy this dress but my friend did. She wanted something she could dress up or down for work or date night. It wasn't impressive on the hanger but when I came out of my dressing room I saw her wearing it and immediately said, "You have to buy that dress." She has a really cute figure but not like the sticks used here as models. It accentuated everything perfectly and if I had an excuse to wear it I would have bought one myself. I can't speak for the quality as I don't know how it is holding up but it is really flattering on.

VERY flattering dressI bought the black striped version of this dress. The paneling on the side is pretty dang figure flattering. I'm 5'6, typically wear a 4/6 and the small was the best fit. I feel like this dress looks good on everyone. Two of my friends have borrowed this dress and despite having very different body types from both myself and each other (5'0 & curvy, 5'9 and slender), they both looked great in it as well. I thought it was pretty comfortable. I will say that while walking around in it, it had a tendency to rise and agree with the reviewer that said it pilled a littled bit. I have worn it out with heels and to work with a black blazer. I think it would be a great addition to any lady's wardrobe.

Love thisI tried this on in the black stripes. It was a good length and figure flattering while still being work appropriate. The blocking on the side makes it very flattering.

Beautiful and flattering dress!I didn't buy this dress only because my daughter informed me that she had already purchased it for herself (a Mother/Daughter code violation, I believe). Anyhow, Anthro review-readers should to know that this extremely lovely knit dress is form fitting and extremely flattering. At 5'9" and 125 -130 lbs. the size medium fit as though it had been tailored just for me. Though about an inch above my knee, it was not as short on me as it is on the model. I'm tall, so I'm guessing that the model is wearing a petite size. This dress could be worn to work, on a date, or for a fancy occasion. The longer length that I tried on gave the dress a classy, feminine and sexy-without-trying appeal. My husband loved it. too!
Alnilam - Review from Anthropologie
Figure-flattering, but poor quality and smallI tried this dress on in both the black and neutral motifs while trying to decide what to spend my birthday discount on. I didn't like the black at all--it made me feel like a giant keyboard and just looked a bit goofy I thought. I love the neutral motif much more: the design and colors are more conservative so it can be worn to work and the black paneling is just perfect for creating a nice shape. I really felt like it looked great on and would be perfect for me for conferences and the like.Unfortunately, after much agonizing, I decided against it for three reasons. First, it runs a little small so my usual size M felt a little tight and constricting around hips and breasts. A large was much too big and completely lost the sleek, sexy shape.Second, and more importantly: as others have mentioned, this dress is not lined. That is RIDICULOUS for a $170 dress in my opinion. I think the dress would be more comfortable and also even more slimming with a decent lining. Finally, the fabric is a weird blend of everything synthetic. The texture actually reminds me a lot of a Gap skirt I own, which looked great for about a month and is now covered in pills and fuzzies with a hole in the seam. My first thought was "this will pill in about five minutes" and I'm glad to see, based on some of the other reviews here, that I made the right decision.Ultimately, lovely dress but way overpriced, even with the birthday discount. I'm looking for something more long-lasting.
