A few weeks ago I was asked to review a sample of clothing from Anatomie. I agreed since as you know, I do a fair bit of traveling and I think I’m getting a little old for my usual Lululemon suits–especially when I’m away on business. The problem is though that I just don’t have time to pack fancy dresses and sit there ironing them in my room. Who has the time? So, when Anatomie told me that their clothing doesn’t wrinkle, I figured, what do I have to lose?
The dress came and I must say, I wear it constantly now, even when I’m not traveling. I can’t speak to the quality of the rest of their clothes but the Monika Short-Sleeve V-Neck Ballerina dress is extremely well made and even more importantly, it’s really flattering. I never thought that it would be, but it’s one of those outfits that every time I wear it, someone compliments the dress. Whoever designed this dress knows exactly where it should hit. It’s also great because it can go from day-to-night. I wear it to work and then will wear it to an event later that night and it totally works. The material is really thick (apparently their fabrics are sourced from Italy and France) and the dress, although cotton and flowy, is not flimsy at all. It’s also really comfortable. And the best part? It doesn’t wrinkle! Anatomie’s clothing is designed for travel—you can ball it up, leave it on the floor, give it your all—these garments will not wrinkle.
My final test was how the dress washed. I am terrible at laundry and embarrassingly send mine out still. What does that mean? Well, it means that most of my clothing is not laundered with care unless I dry clean it. Everything is washed AND dried. I know I shouldn’t do this but I do—and I suspect that there are probably several of you who have no time to be hand-washing garments and air drying them. I live in New York City, I don’t have a clothesline and fresh air to dry my clothes in the sun. I am pleased to say that even under these harsh conditions, the dress has survived about 6 wash and dries so far and it looks totally fine! No pilling, no fading, and when it comes back folded in my laundry bag, it doesn’t wrinkle.
Although Anatomie’s prices aren’t cheap I think that you get what you pay for in this situation. It’s really well-made and I think it’s durable and clearly made to last. Also, it’s designer travel wear and so you pay a premium. But I think you’ll feel like you look nice as opposed to feeling like a slob when you’re traveling, which to me is priceless.

*As I mentioned above, I received a free dress for purposes of this review but all opinions are my own. I get several packages each month and rarely do posts about clothing, because I never think it’s special enough to share*
