Rated 5 out of 5Â by amccall1 LOVE it
I bought this dress in purple for a wedding that my boyfriend was the best man for- it fit a little awkwardly in the stomach as it bunched out a little, but it was perfect everywhere else. I wore it with nude pumps and got a TON of compliments. I'm 5'7" 130 lbs and wore a small. I actually went in the store for it but they only had a small in black- they ordered the small in purple for me from Las Vegas and it came with a handwritten card. :) Definitely recommend the dress and Free People.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by theurbanaesthete Runs large, fits awkwardly
I am a sucker for lace and collect "evening" dresses, so this was a no-brainer for me. Sadly, it fits horribly. You can actually tell it doesn't fit well in the pictures, but I took a chance anyway. I normally wear a small (US 4, I am 5'9", 34C, 27 waist, 36 hips) but I often order XS in Free People since their sizing runs large typically. I ordered an XS in this and it's WAY too big, it feels like it's for a busty US 6. Ugh. Fits so boxy and defines you nowhere...makes your boobs look small, waist look wide, and hips look boxy. The piece itself is lovely, but don't buy unless you are comfortable tailoring or enjoy a boxy cut.

I had to jump through SO many hoops for this dress, but I'm glad I did. I waited too long before I ordered the purple lace version and it sold out. After trying online and calling 3 different stores over a 2 week period, I finally found one!
I had read the previous comment about sizing down, so I ordered a medium (which I am usually) and a small just in case.
So glad I did!
The medium fits, but it was just a little too loose in the stomach. The small fits like a glove. It's SO worth the price! The detailing is beautiful and it gives me an butt that won't quit, especially in heels.
If in doubt, I would order two sizes and send the bigger one back, it's less hassle than finding out one is too big and then trying to order the other and having it sold out (which this dress seems to do a lot).
The dress gets a 5, for price and for quality. The pain it was to get doesn't have any affect in the rating.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by tara_alderson Comfortable & great fit
I order this dress for my casual city wedding. It fits great and is super comfortable. Exactly what I was looking for.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by RockyMountain perfect cut for most people
I took measurements and ordered true to size, and it fits fine. I can see why some are ordering small, as the fabric has enough give that a size smaller would give a form-fitted look. I'm wearing the dress to a lake wedding, so it can look a little more casual and loose. The pictures make the fabric look like the lace is a satin material, but it is a matte cotton. The shape is great if you have curves, but it won't work if you have a slim figure because it will look boxy. I bought the sand coloured in large and it can be dressy, or casual. This is one of the best deals on FP. I love this dress.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by emmui Definitely size down
I bought this dress in two sizes. I usually wear a small but it fit like a medium! The extra small fit perfectly. There isn't a side zipper so be careful putting the dress on and taking it off. The lace is very intricate and stands out more in the purple haze and cranberry colours.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by hannah-teckna Perfect black dress!
I had been looking for a perfect black dress for my graduation for a while, and when I saw this dress in the FP store in New York, I completely fell in love with it!
The lace is so soft and delicate and the dress is very comfortable. It's not a super tight fitting dress and that makes it very comfortable to wear.
I absolutely love this dress, it is the perfect little black dress (without it being boring!)
Rated 3 out of 5Â by chickied large but not that large
I usually don't fit into Free People stuff but based on the reviews that this runs large and that it just looked liked exactly what I wanted, I gave it a go. Nope. Returned.
