Rated 4 out of 5
by kristay Cute and unique, but a bit shorter than I wanted
This dress fit me like a glove. I'm 5'5" and 100lbs and would not need to get this taken in at all. The material is very stretchy to accommodate different sizes; I took a size XS. I was surprised to see that a previous reviewer who says she is a size 0 that the dress looked like a garbage bag. I found it to be flattering and cute, so perhaps the one she received was mislabeled. I'm very picky about how my clothes fit, preferring a fitted look to a loose look. My only complaint is the length of the dress, but I shouldn't complain since it is labeled a "mini dress." Wish it came in a color other than black, as I think it would be great in a bright summery color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Delveen Perfect Amount of Sexy!
It's a shame the reviewer before me felt the way she did. This dress is by Liefsnote which I believe is a less expensive line from Liefsdottir (whom I love!) and their clothing is known to come up big. Un-like the previous reviewer, this dress was everthing I expected! It is so sexy and flattering on, I love the unique details of the straps and the hem as well as the sort of ruching in the middle. I'm surprised anthro described this dress as a "faux wrap", it really isn't in my opinion. I love the fabric of this dress, very soft and comfy (it feels like a Bailey 44 dress who are known for soft comfy clothing.) I was really worried that this dress was going to be way too short especially considering it was described as only being twenty something inches long! But on the contrary, the longest side of the dress was just a few inches above my knees and I'm 5' 7"! It's very stretchy that you can actually pull it down if necessary. This sexy little number is being packed in my suitcase for my honeymoon to Cancun! :-)

Rated 2 out of 5 by mcr Best for shorter women
I wanted to love this dress, and I'm sure I would have if I was 5 inches shorter. Unfortunately at 5'10", this dress was completely ill fitting on me. The bodice was good but the ruching ended well above my natural waist. On the back view you can see there is quite a bit of gathered fabric just below the ruching which would be great if it hits your butt/hips. On me all the extra fabric was at my waist and it was really unflattering. Then the dress started to narrow (presumably for a shorter person's thighs) at my butt and was too tight there. I ordered the small and, not counting the length, I think it was TTS. I loved the fabric and I still like the style but don't even consider this dress unless you are 5'6" or shorter or are very short-waisted.
