Rated 4 out of 5Â by jlfsandiego Each color constructed differently?
It seems like the bust of this dress varies with the color, unfortunately.
For reference, I am 6'1", long and athletic, with a 38b/36c chest.
I tried a 10 in black in the store and it was soft, feminine, and the placement of the flowers with more towards the bottom is perfect. It is flirty and flattering! However, the cups sagged open and would need a stitch so I didn't buy.
Saw blue online and ordered it, figuring I could have it altered anyway. Well, it fit perfectly! No sag. The back opening is huge but I wore it over my bikini one day and a pretty lace bralette at night, and got lots of compliments. It's not a work dress, but great for dates, parties, sunny afternoons. The blue is darker than pictured but lovely and vibrant.
OH! I also ordered red, and had the same issue with the bust as black. It's going back, but I hope you fix this FP because I do love this dress and want more colors!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by peacefrog Odd sizing
I am 5 7, 34B, 135 lbs and I sized down from a 6 to a 4 based on other reviews. The bust area fit well (not too big) but the rest of the dress was a touch too small. Sizing up might work if I sewed the front together to provide more coverage. But I am not willing to pay full price for an item that I'll have to alter. The pattern, fabric quality, and style is really nice - so the average rating is just due to the sizing issue. It's really too bad the bust size isn't consistent with the rest of the dress. It probably would work great for those blessed with a larger chest.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by NataRoLow Love this dress but not exactly as pictured
This dress immediately caught my eye because of it's bright blue and yellow colors. However, when i received this in the mail it's not exactly as it seems in the picture. i don't often say that about free people stuff, but in this case it's pretty different. The blue is darker, it's definitely a pure "cobalt" blue. So i suppose they're not misrepresenting it because it is called "cobalt", however, it's just not as bright and light as it is in the picture. Additionally, the yellow is more of a dark gold color. The dress in general is just not as bright and light as it is in this picture, but it's still beautiful!

Is a bit darker than pictured. It's a much richer, warmer blue and yellow than shown. But that being said I love this dress more than life itself. It sits perfectly in every aspect. I don't even need to wear a bra. It's just perfect! Other than the colour it looks just like pictured.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by freedom-lover challenging to find a bra for
I agree with some reviewers who have larger chests and are unable to find a bra that fits without showing. I am a 36DDD and bought this in a size 12 in red ( probably needed a 10, but I shrunk it down to size in the wash/dryer!) but had to contend with the back not being bra friendly. I like the low front but having large breasts also means the back of the dress "hikes up" and constantly has to be readjusted. I was either pulling the dress down in back or up in front. Will likely relegate this to "around the house" or wear with a camisole which negates the open back. Also wrinkles easily and I refuse to iron. Lay flat after a quick dry and laundering. Still a cute dress and soft material. Red is bright scarlet.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by sara19 Cute but not for the big chested
I ordered this dress in the cobalt color and as others mentioned, the color was different (a deeper blue) from that of the picture. Fortunately I really liked the color anyways. I also felt it fit well, however, it seems that you need just the right size chest for this dress. Too small and you're left with an awkward loose fit as read from others and I could imagine, owning the dress. However, I wear a 34DD bra and although I have a bra that has a deep v in front, I am constantly pulling the dress up and over because this dress ended up showing way too much cleavage. I was hoping I could wear this as a casual day dress but that look is next to impossible to pull off with a larger chest. I am keeping it because otherwise it fits well and I am hoping to find a bra that perhaps produces less cleavage, but I warn all of you with larger chests that this dress can be more trouble than its worth so only buy if you have the right bra for it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by FPNapagirl Love it, but not the perfect fit
I bought this in the red in a size 2 (5'8", 125 lbs. on the slender side, small bust) I love this dress it's darling, but a little hard to wear for those of us without a little more up top. I find the dress a bit too big in the bust area. I may have a seamstress sew the V. area a little closer together. I know it's supposed to show off some cleavage, but when I sit down, the dress awkwardly opens up. The 0 would have been too small for me. I agree with other reviewers that the arms are a bit snug and I'm afraid if i sized down to a 0, the dress would be too short as I'm all legs. I do love this dress though, so I'm going to attempt to work with it by having the V neck altered a bit.

I tried this dress in black at the store and it is perfect for my body type, I am petite and busty. Beautiful, soft and simple.
