Rated 4 out of 5Â by Nicola04 Easy Summer Style
Bought this dress in blue - actually preferred the cream but could not find the XS. I am getting quite used to selecting sizes one or two down from other clothing brands with Free People and this dress was no exception. Not a big deal at all - just have found this consistent across all my purchases anyway. Very easy summer dress....great with gold toned sandals and jewellery as the embroidery has gold running through it. No need to iron so great for travelling too.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by CocoM Very cute!
Bought this dress in a small (my usual size) but definitely should have gotten an XS. the dress is so so cute and i wear it exactly as the model does. With a sweater and a pair of boots its perfect for the fall and with a pair of sandals its great for the summer! I would however warn that the top is somewhat see through and a good tan bra is strongly advised!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by bohoangel5 Makes a great Summer dress!
I purchased this dress in the blue version in size large as my regular FP size medium was not available. The large ended up working out for me since 1. it gave me added length (I am 5'6" and hit right above my knees) and 2. the waist ended up lying in a better more flattering lower place. The skirt part is lined so no need for a slip with this one. The only thing is because I am a busty 36D the V neck goes down way too low for my comfort level so I will probably wear a cami or something under it. Other than that I think it will make an excellent Summer dress as the material is that light gauze that is great when it gets really hot. I recommend this one!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by rnackenzie Beautiful, but runs a little large
I fell in love with this dress the first time I laid eyes on it. I was hesitant to order it online, but when I finally received it in the mail I was so happy. However, when I tried it on i found it was definitely large! As the other reviewer said the waist hit me at a very unflattering place. I'll have to have it taken in, but I think this dress is so beautiful it's absolutely worth it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by FPobession Great dress but runs small...
I usually wear a medium in FP, sometimes a small but I ended up purchasing this in a large. The medium fit but the embroidered waist hit me at the wrong place...not high enough for my real waist but not low enough to be flattering. And the length was just too short on me (I'm 5'10"). With the large, the waist hits me at my hips and looks great - more like a drop-waist dress. The top is not too loose - it fits as in the model shots - and the length is perfect. I wore this last weekend with a tank underneath, jean jacket and sandals and received lots of compliments. Only wish I had been able to get it in the beautiful blue color. I knocked off one star because the fabric is very delicate and snags easily. I have had the same problem with the Daisy Lace Dress, the Pintucked Tunic and this one...they all snag really easily so be careful! Worth the extra effort, though.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by njmacintosh Love at first sight, very disappointed
I saw this dress a few months ago and was immediately in love with it. I finally took the plunge and ordered it online a few weeks ago. I am between a large and medium (5'5", 145 lbs, 34C) and decided to go with a medium after reading previous reviews. After trying it on at home I probably would have bought a small in store, which is astounding. The dress runs VERY large, not just loose like on the model. It is also surprisingly long, and hit just above the knee for me, while the waist hit below my belly button. A very unflattering cut for just about anybody I would say. The bodice was very sheer, but the skirt was lined.
Sadly, I will be returning this item.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by FPKaraK Niagara = beautiful underrated piece!
I am so in love with this piece! I fell in love as soon as the Ivory popped up online. I was so happy I waited to order as the beautiful "Niagara" Color is to die for! am a blue eyed blonde so this suits my coloring superb. The color and stitching is exactly as pictured in the studio photos. The Ivory in person is on the sheer side. A nude bra would work best with this piece or you can add a pop of color with a bandeau or halter bra! I purchased my usual size XS. The dress is cut slightly on the larger side. However due to the nature of the styling of the dress it is not that big of a deal. I am 5'6", 107lbs 32B - 25 - 33. I have a long torso so I did not have an issue with the waist hitting me awkwardly. I love how comfortable this piece is while still looking pretty and feminine. I am very happy I snatched this one up! I def feel this beauty is underrated! It also matches the new colorway of the "Lima" cardigan perfectly. I purchased them to wear together and get so many compliments!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Nay117 Was very excited ..
I was so excited to get this dress.. I order an xsmall in the ivory.. I am 120lbs, 5'4, 34B, and about 27" waste and 36 hips. It was big.. and the waste hit lower on me not in the most flattering area.. I like the style so considering getting it taken in a little.
