I recently purchased this dress for my senior prom as it was the dress I have been in love with since it first showed up on freepeople.com. I couldn't wait to receive it in the mail and when I did I was a bit disappointed with the packaging. I was sure this dress, for all the money it was, would be in better packaging than just a basic plastic bag. I went to the cleaners to press the wrinkles out of it from the packaging and it was perfect after that, but I was still a little bothered free people couldn't bother with a higher quality package. The dress fit perfectly although I did order a size up from my usual size. Also, I am 5'9" and the dress length didn't bother me, but I would be careful if you are a little shorter because it may be a little too long. This dress was worth every penny and I am so happy with this purchase!

I purchased and wore this dress to a wedding and it was amazing! The gown is really beautiful, a show stopper. I received many compliments and felt amazing in it.
Here is a break down of my review:
sizing: true to size. The band at the waist that goes around your lower back is definitely snug and has no stretch, but I wouldn't suggest ordering up. The top of the dress is relaxed and not at all tight but doesn't fall off the shoulders. I am quite flat chested and had a lot of room, I loved the way the dress fell. It is LONG! I am about 5'7.5'' and with a 4'' heel the dress was JUST a bit too long on me. I didn't have time to have it hemmed otherwise I would have.
Details: The slits are not as high as the image shows. The beading is gorgeous and the back is quite low but not at all inappropriate. Definitely accentuates your bum!
Quality: The first dress I ordered arrived with a damaged zipper that I would have had to have had repaired so I returned it and ordered a second. Because the dress was a bit long a lot of the beading around the hem fell off throughout the course of the evening and there is a hole in the chiffon that I will have to have repaired. Otherwise I was impressed with the quality of the bead work and the dress in general.
If you're thinking about this, buy it. It is a head turner and you will love your evening in it!
