Rated 2 out of 5Â by georgiamotz wanted to love it, but I cant
I bought this in blue and was super excited until I tried it on. I am 5'2" and am fairly narrow through the chest and waist. The top barely covers my boobs. The way it ties in the back is terrible and makes the front come down. There is no cinching the waist to keep it in place. Im very disappointed because the fabric is beautiful. I ordered a belt to try and make it work but if it doesnt its going back.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by doggiemama5 I love this dress!
I had been waiting to see more reviews before I ordered this dress but, couldn't wait any longer.
I am 5'2" and usually a FP medium but, sometimes a small. I wear a size 10 normally. I ordered this in a medium and I love it. You don't have to wear anything underneath it BUT, its huge. I tried really hard to adjust the straps in back to make it shorter but, it just made the top gapey.
I did send it back for a size small and I do expect it to be perfect. A lot of times on here when people say to size down, I've done that only to find the items too short but, in this case, take my word for it. Even with heels, it would have been too long and big for me.

I just received this dress in the blue colour and I love the fabric; it is very soft and breathable but is a good weight so I will be able to layer it up into the fall (though its still light enough for summer). I don't find it sheer. There is a lot of fabric in this dress, but the vertical gathering throughout the chest keeps the bulk down and helps give it more of a shape, and the back of course is open which helps reduce the bulk as well. Really the excess fabric for me is in the length; if I was the height of the model it might hang exactly as it does in the picture but where she is 5'11 I am only 5'3". When mine arrived the strapping on one side was not looped through the back but that was a simple case of just threading it through, and the ends of the straps have small clusters of metal bells on them that I didn't see in the image. Its a nice touch but can be removed if you don't like it. Overall I am happy with this purchase and would recommend it, particularly if you are lucky enough to have those extra few inches in height. Anyone with a larger bust may want to try before you buy, as the cut along the sides may be a challenge. Cheers!
