Rated 4 out of 5Â by annie61 Good for broad shoulders, busty gals
I agree with the other reviewers that this dress runs large in the shoulders. But, i disagree its for the skinny gals. I'm pretty curvy on the bottom end and this dress looked fantastic on me. The fabric is thick enough to hide some "flaws." But, i didn't have the chest to fill this dress out and therefore the shoulders kept falling down on me. If you have curves on top and bottom, this dress would be a bombshell look on you and i'd consider it to run "true to size" if you're proportioned well. And, the V in the back is actually at the perfect length that you can still wear a normal bra and it doesn't show. Love the embroidery on here. It's a very updated, unique LBD.

Received this as a gift and its a stunner. I agree with the other reviewers, as it is more of a fall dress due to its heavier weighted fabric. Now, to find the perfect shoes:)
I am 5'8", 130lbs, small chest, and got an XS. I could have fit one size up but the shoulders were too roomy and I couldn't keep the dress in place. I'll still use some fashion tape with the XS, but that's just to be on the safe side.

This dress is by far my favorite free people dress (I bought it in the toast color)! It fits so nicely, not too snug like most body cons, and is an especially great dress for girls with curves. The fabric is super soft and warm (not overwhelmingly hot though). Great dress to wear in the fall with a pair of high boots, heels, or ballet flats. Definitely worth every penny.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by luvcharm great for taller and slimmer peepz
i liked this dress ever since i saw it in the catalog. finally got to try it on, and...would've been better if i was taller and didn't have stomach fat. it's not as short as the model though because i'm shorter which is good. i also think they could have toned it down with the design to make it stand out better.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by marySprkleSmary great fabric, great fit
There is really very little to say. I am SO HAPPY I purchased this Bodycon. The fabric has a nice weight to it, the embroidery is very flattering, and I found that the size was very true. It dresses "up and down" very well, for several different occasions.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by loohis An amazing dress
I wish every body con dress would fit like this. The weight of the fabric is perfect-----just thick enough to show off the curves, but not so thin as to emphasize the bulges. A great fit!!!! Slightly large in the shoulders, but nothing too awful. Also, I don't see the problem with the embroidery. It seems solid to me. Please Free People........make more of these dresses with long sleeves and this fabric! It's the first dress I've bought from you in many months because recently I've found the body cons to be cheap and thin.

I agree with the other review stating the embroidery is very loose. The dress is lovely, but I think it will probably end up falling apart when washed. It runs big in the arms and shoulders. I do like the thickness of the fabric. My wonderful, gorgeous Husband bought this for me, otherwise, I would have waited until it went on sale.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by MarO pleased, but...
This dress is definitely an eye-catcher. The embroidery is intricate and beautiful. However, I will reiterate the other review: the colors are not as vivid as shown. Additionally, around the chest, shoulder, and back areas the dress is a little loose. This isn't a huge problem when you take the uniqueness of the dress into account. But I will warn you, the embroidery is loose! Especially on the arms. So only get this dress if you're willing to deal with the relative disappointment of thread coming loose and then having to sew it back in yourself. Also, this is not a summer dress! The material is very thick so the garment lends itself to being a more late fall, early winter piece. All in all, the black (which is actually slate gray) is gorgeous if you're willing to put up w/ some extra tlc to maintain the look.
