Rated 4 out of 5Â by glenn_coco Disappointed by the colour
I bought this thinking the base colour was black. It's not - it's more of a blue-based charcoal grey colour. It is very noticeably grey. The print is lovely though - the hints of pink, blue and purple in the cheetah are watercolour-esque. The white cheetah spots are actually cream as well. The grey base makes the overall look of the dress much 'lighter' (romantic, even) when I was hoping for a more 'edgy' look.
I bought a S based on the reviews of the original floral 'First Kiss' dress (#27920875). I'm 5'3" (33.5"/26"/37") and in between an XS-S. Bought a S based on the reviews of the original saying the arms and bust are tight. It's too roomy all over for my liking and doesn't look that flattering on me. The arms were not tight on me at all and my arms are on the flabby side for my size. Definitely could have gone for an XS. I'd say the measurements listed for the S in the product description is accurate.
Due to the dark colour, the top doesn't look sheer when worn and the half slip skirt isn't noticeable at all (thank God 'cos I HATE noticeable half slips in maxis). I definitely could go braless in this. I didn't find it so long that I would bother hemming it. It's wonderfully swishy and the back is beautiful - warning: the bottom of the back opening might finish below the top of your undies waistband. I just wish it were darker. Returning this and miiiiight buy this a size smaller if it goes on sale.

167cms, 55kg, 35 inch bust, 34c.
Purchased my normal xs in FP dresses. Great fit, really love that this is not a true black and love the flecks of pink in the cheetah print. As the other reviewer mentioned the spots are cream and not white which fits in with the muted grey background.
Overall great value at the sale price.

This dress is beautiful, sensuous and very good quality, but very tight around the chest.
I am a small, usually, but could not button the chest area. Also, since I'm so short, it was way too long and has a complicated hemming process. Sent back, but sadly, since the dress was so darling. Lookes much better in person, and on.
