Spicy Ginger Dress
Fit: I am often a 6/8 in Anthropologie's dresses - but ordered a 10 because my sizes were sold out. It was a bit big on my chest (but not noticeably so). And was super comfortable and flattering everywhere else. Despite my size up, I would recommend staying true to size in this gown. I am 5'6" and this dress fell right to the ground for me.
This is a gorgeous gown. I was so happy to purchase it during the winter sales promotion. This is the kind of dress that just makes you want to twirl (and fans out beautifully when you do). The unique weaving of this dress is breath taking. However, it is very delicate. The dress I received was damaged on the bodice (close up shot). I contacted BHLDN's customer service - they were super apologetic and helpful with the return.
This is a lovely gown - highly recommend - just be careful with the delicate material.

First of all this dress is exactly as pictured (Mustard color). It also is true to size. I wore this dress to an outdoor change of command ceremony on a very warm day and it was Wonderful. Felt those nice breezes! This dress will give a little but that was just fine since I have a little extra in the hip area (32A-26-36 1/2) . The straps are adjustable. Dress gives nice hour glass shape. Oh, I did take up the dress about 4 inches. I am 5'1. I did it my self as always. Make sure to have your Tailor attach the lace back to the bottom of the dress after he cuts it. The dress would not be the same without the lace on the bottom.

This dress is very pretty!!! I purchased this to wear for our day after brunch. The fabric is rich in texture and the lining is a silky tan. The bust is subtlety sexy w the see through of the lace to the tan silk. I'm a 34D, 26 waist, 36 hip- and the top in a size 4 was perfect!!! I could even wear slightly linned bra. The waist fit well too, the hips are too big by about an inch on each side. I measured a 4 exactly but the hips will need to be taken in for sure. Thats,y only negative but evertyone has differnt bpdy types i just Aleays assume any dress will need a tweek. I'm 5'8" and could only wear a kitten heel maybe 2 inches at most. The dress moves beautifully when you walk and it's something you could put orange or brown with to make a fabulous fall Frock or put pink or purples or even a straw clutch with to make summery. A great versatile piece. Very happy w my purchase at the sale price.

i love this dress. i'm usually a size 0 to 2 in dresses, and the 2 fit like a glove. the yellow is just as pictured, and the textured fabric creates a nice effect. i'm 5'7'' and the length hit about 1/2 inch above the floor, so i can wear this with flats or heels. i plan on wearing it to a summer wedding. i also purchased the necklace that the model is wearing, and it really completes the look.
