Sadly I have to agree with Jan's review. I had high expectations for this dress- my first dress purchase from Anatomie. Unfortunately everything that Jan said is correct. I would add that the adjustable belt is too low and would not look nice even if it worked properly. The pockets are also poorly placed. I am not giving this away yet because I really want to find a way to make it work, but I have already considered letting my daughter use it as an art smock. I will note that I ordered the cali vest. The size I got is too big but I realized that this design would have been nice as a dress actually (hint hint design team!)
I bought this on sale, so unfortunately can't return or exchange. As recommended, I bought a S, I am 5'1, 105#. I was told the waist made it adjustable so if it needed to be brought in it was easy to do so. What they did NOT tell me is when you adjust the waist the zipper buckles and does not lay flat. I literally has "waves" in it and looks horrible. I even tried to unzip it, thinking I could use it as a rain cover, as recommended in the description - that doesn't work either. It is shapeless and looks like a black sack (think "burka") and not stylish at all. I was so hopeful this would replace my little black Eileen Fisher travel dress which is starting to show quite a bit of wear, unfortunately I am dumping this in the charity bin. I love Anatomie's pants, but as far as dresses, this was a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! Sorry I can't give it ZERO stars!
