absolutely love this dress! its extremely flattering and can be worn with flats or heels. it definitely fits snug in the chest area as other reviewers have mentioned, but i like that about the dress. my only gripe is that the straps are a bit long. i ended up having them shortened about an inch and now it fits perfectly. realistically i could have gone without the strap alteration since the chest area fit so snug the straps didnt really affect where the dress hung across my chest.

This is a beautiful and unusual dress; looking at the images online I never would have thought it would fit me. I'm so glad they carried it in the store to try on!!! I'm short (5'3") and extremely pear-shaped (32a/b bust and 42" hips) and the size medium fits like a dream!!! The top is snug and the gathering across the bodice is flattering and makes my bust look a little bigger (yay!), the skirt flows away from the body and de-emphasizes my hips and bum, while the asymmetrical hemline makes me look like legs for miles! It might be a tough fit if you are especially slender or well-endowed, but pears rejoice! The color is slightly more beige than pictured and the fabric is VERY thin (although the built in slip helps a lot). It seems to resist wrinkles, so will likely travel well. I'm excited to wear it later this month for a beach wedding in Tel Aviv!!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by mouse Absolutely love this dress
I LOVE this dress. I am 5'6" and 115 and bought an XS. I am very small chested 32B (that's being generous) and it was very tight on my chest and rib cage. It is extremely flattering and the draping on it front and back is really beautiful and unique. It is nice to get a dress from FP that is not big and baggy. I would imagine if you were large busted that this would not work on you unless you would like your girls peaking out the top quite a bit. I bought the berry color--LOVE it love it. I will wear my DV black wedges with it in the summer and my boots in the fall/winter.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Loveorhate Great design
I tried mulberry in the store size S and it would be perfect, but for some reason it did not fit around my chest as expected. Because I love the design so much, and how original the dress is(nothing new here), I am thinking , I may have better luck ordering online. Seriously, FP has some great designers!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by KaylaS Falling apart (this is a big long, forgive me)
This dress is beautiful, no doubt. I bought the blue one in a small based on the recommendation of an associate (they didn't have any at the store near me so I ordered online). I waited months to wear it because I got it in February and it didn't stop snowing till about May. The first time I got to wear it out, I noticed that the straps were obnoxiously loose and long, so I had to keep pulling up my dress to keep my cleavage at least a little in check. Also, when I took it off, the frayed canvas straps actually began to unravel. I know the designers probably thought it looked really cool and bohemian and hipster and whatnot (hey, so did I), but this is a seriously flawed part of the dress. What will I do when the straps completely unravel and disappear? Can I send it back so you can sew on new straps? It really sucks that this dress has a time limit, for all the money I paid for it. I wore it out again and noticed more unraveling as the day went on--a day of gently strolling through the zoo. I love the dress otherwise and I'll have to keep it now anyway, but I wish there was a little more thought put into the materials.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by RedMoon Perfect fabric for hot weather!
I live in the desert so I always look for dresses that are comfortable in this climate and this dress definitely fits the bill! It is a light almost gauze type fabric. Very breathable but most importantly does not need a slip underneath. What's the point of buying a light breathable fabric and then have to pile on another layer? No worries with this one. Like others mentioned the straps are too long but it only took me about 20 minutes to take them up an inch and a half and I am not a fast with a needle and thread! The fit is perfect now. I bought the green black and I love it! I am 5' 10" 160 lbs and the medium fits just right. Overall I am very happy with my purchase.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by dotmae Cute on the model
I thought this dress would be a great addition to express my fun quirky style. I was disappointed that it runs large and there seemed to be too much fabric (totally lost my chest). In addition the wide straps contributed to my decision not to try a size smaller, XS. There was just too much fabric.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by MrsRobinson A bit big
I bought this in green/black in a small, it just got here and it is a work of art. Would be a bit better if it fit me though, its loose in the torso. I think sizing down would have made it fitted like the photographs. I'm 5'9 135lbs 32b. Adjusting the straps and a big push up bra should fix it though
