After seeing this dress in the FP blog a couple of weeks ago, I have been stalking it. When I saw it was available not only in the hunter green but also in a burgundy color way, I had to order both. I'm a petite at 5'2" so I was happy to see an XSmall version available, since last year's velvet slip started with just a Small and it was too big. This dress is so gorgeous! The fabric is soft and stretchy, and the colors are so rich and beautiful. There is not much difference between the XSmall and the Small, so if you see your size sold out, I don't think you could go too far wrong by ordering up one size because the fabric is very forgiving. So many options for dressing this up or down, it is the perfect basic dress to build an outfit around. Here are the dimensions of the XSmall I received:
bust (relaxed): 26"
bust (stretched out): 32"
strap length from front to back: 12 1/2"
length from top of strap to hem: 56"
I couldn't decide between the hunter green and the burgundy, so I kept both. These dresses will get plenty of use this fall and winter.

I noticed that this dress was not made by FP. However, I must say that whoever makes purchases for FP does a great job. The dress is gorgeous. I sized up based on the bust measurements provided. I am 34D(38") and S would not fit me. When I received my dress, I was surprised how small it was. Thankfully, it is stretchy and it fits me perfectly. I ordered M in hunter green color. The color is gorgeous, the material is soft. It is perfect.
Measurements for size M are:
Bust (relaxed): 28"
Length(from the end of the strap to the bottom hem) : 51"

This is a great dress, no surprises, it looks as on screen in the burgundy I chose, it is easy and comfortable and adaptable. I thought it might be too skimpy for me but took a chance and ordered L. As others have commented that they did not need to size down in this dress as they normally do in FP dresses, those who normally order L in FP might find it useful to know that I found my most usual L a good fit. There is plenty of soft give in it and it is flattering, and with enough fabric in the bodice area not to feel too skimpy on. I am UK 14/16 FP 10/12 M/L (the smaller sizes in roomier styles) 36/38C.

This dress rocks! Even though it is form fitting, it doesn't show "everything". I did size up for the fear of velvet showing every bulge and love it! This piece will be a great staple to dress up or down.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by AJLaLa Great dress!
This dress is a great staple for your closet. Fits really nicely and feels really good on. I got the burgundy which pretty much looks like pictured--very pretty! I love how you can dress this down or up. Very fun and versatile, funky but super sexy pretty. In fact, I may wear it tonite with my low lace up boots and a sweater to play a band gig at a motorcycle cafe/bar! I am usually xs-s (34C-size 2) in fp and got this in the small which was a good call cause it probably would've been a little too small in the xs. Very pleased! Plus getting it on sale didn't hurt!

I'm size 4 and I sized up from my normal small to a medium due to the bust size, and it's a perfect fit. Feels like a dream too. Dark color conceals flaws. The burgundy is jaw droppingly gorgeous and goes Perfectly under the the Tulle maxi slip.

I ordered the burgundy color in small. To my surprise it was more of a magenta color, which made me love the dress all the more. I know FP tends to run a little more large in sizes than other brands. But no need to size down if you normally do so. I usually size down to an XS in FP, but this dress fits how a small should. I'm petite 5'3", but have curves (34C chest), and the bottom hem just covers my toes. I feel the XS may not have fit my chest. It's a lovely dress and quite flattering!

The burgundy is just as pictured and so flattering to my pale skin tone. The fit is perfect! An XS fits a true XS unlike the usual FP dress sizing but I guess that's because this is by only hearts. Super soft and stretchy. Get it before it's gone!
