The details

The Marais Printed Chiffon Maxi Dress is one of Anthropologie's "bestselling dresses ever." The retailer has dubbed the style a "vision of feminine romance and sophisticated ease," and with its airy, effortless design, it's easy to understand why.

'Extremely flattering'

As one of Anthropologie's "bestselling dresses, ever," it's no surprise the Marais maxi dress has earned rave reviews from shoppers and a 4.2-star average rating.

Reviewers call the dress "extremely flattering," especially for those with larger busts and wider hips.

"It's a looser fit, but for someone like me with a larger chest (32DDD), I find it's very flattering and comfortable," writes one shopper. Adding, it "would be flattering" on just about any body type.

"This dress hits and hugs [all] the right spots, and I think it is perfectly on-trend and flattering," says another. It's "gorgeous and versatile."

'Amazing fall dress'

A third shopper calls it an "amazing fall dress" and writes the style has seen her through pre, during and post-pregnancy.

It's "super comfortable and flows really well," she writes. "[I] plan to buy more in different prints to get me through [the] winter."

While the Marais maxi has earned endless praise for its "gorgeous" prints and "versatile" nature, several reviewers mention it fits large and recommend taking one size down.

The verdict

It's easy to see how Anthropologie's Marais maxi dress has become one of its all-time bestsellers. An effortless blend of boho and romantic, the long-sleeved maxi has dozens of five-star reviews singing its praises and dubbing it the perfect dress for fall. However, several reviewers note it fits large — something to keep in mind when selecting your size.
