I was beyond stoked to try this dress on when we go it in store. The print is absolutely gorgeous in every colorway and silhouette is something I have been looking for in a dress for a very long time. That being said, I was very disappointed in the way this dress fit. I'm petite and the xs was like a blanket; I was drowning in the fabric. I however have seen customers try this dress on and it has looked absolutely gorgeous on them! This is definitely a piece to try on because if it works for your body type it is sooo stunning!

At first I wasn't sure about the sleeves when I saw it online but I tried it on in the store and fell in love. The open back is beautiful as is but it also gives you a lot of opportunity to layer a strappy bralette underneath. The fabric is very delicate so be careful wearing jewelry that will snag it. I am 5'4" 32D 120lbs and I got an XS fits like a dream, plenty of room in the chest and is flowy. On taller girls it might be a tad short but nothing leggings or tights wouldn't fix.
Just a hint - which I don't know if i'm just a fool because I didn't notice it right away but there are little snaps on the shoulders to loop around your bra strap so the shoulders don't fall off!! Genius!!

When I saw this dress, I went straight to the store that day wanting to buy it because I loved the style and colors- unfortunately, it has some major fit issues. The shoulders don't sit right, and seem to slouch forward - almost as if the back of the dress doesn't have enough weight to hold the shoulders in place, due to the low V. It's not a matter of 'filling the dress out' either, because I am very busty - it just seem to be strangely constructed, and not in a way that could be fixed with altering. Bummer, cause otherwise, it was a definite purchase for me.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by wolfiestrutt Odd fit for me too...
I am small framed, but have a large chest. I can usually make most FP dresses work, but this one was a no-go. I would say it runs slightly large overall, but with the seam at the skirt running just under the bust I had to pull more material forward than looked right with the open V at the back. It really is a beautiful dress - the print on the antique rose is stunning - would be beautiful on other body types!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by nnikkisunday Beautiful dress but the arms are placed wrong
I read the poor reviews before getting this but saw this on sale and had to snag it as I have been eyeing it for many months now. The colors are just as beautiful in person and if it weren't for the placement of the arms this would be a perfect dress. Unfortunately as many others have pointed out the arms are placed awkwardly on this dress. They sit too low so that if you want to lift your arms at all the whole top of the dress lifts in an awkward way. If you look at the model's pic you can kind of see the effect in the shot where she has one hand on her hip. The other issue is that the shoulders are so wide on this dress that getting it to stay on is a real challenge. My work around to get this to stay on is to clip the little snappy string around my bra strap on the inside of the dress and to also loop my arms through the hanger loops on the inside This is the only way the dress will actually stay on. The dress is true to size everywhere except in the arms/shoulders which I don't think are a wrong size but are instead just placed poorly. Ultimately I did decide to keep it because of the great sales price I got and because it truly is beautiful. So if you find it on sale and you are willing to not move your arms too much while wearing it then it may work for you.

Just ordered this dress on Sunday and it arrived at my door today! I love it ! It is so cute, and the bell sleeves just complete the look. Definitely wearing this to Thanksgiving dinner! It was just a little too big, but I have a small frame.

Â by Magwinzie love it.
I saw this dress in the store and tried it on expecting to not like it (it definitely looks like a lot of bell sleeve), but ended up loving it and wearing it to see jack white at red rocks. I purchased an XS which is a smaller size than I normally would have gotten, and it was a little on the short side but fit up top, but it was great for a show, and just for life.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Lowen I second fit issues
I saw this dress online and really fell in love with both the burgundy/ivory combo and the dark blue. I went to an FP store fully intent on purchasing this dress in one or both colors, but am sad to say that I had similar fit issues to another reviewer. First off, this dress is super pretty in person. Both colors I was interested in are beautiful and vibrant. I tried on a S and a M (usually a S/sz6 in FP). The small was very strange fitting in the arms and shoulders. It seems almost as if the arms and shoulders of the dress were not sewn into the right spots, at least for me. My arms and shoulders did not feel comfortable. The dress seemed to be pushing forward. I thought going a size up to the medium may help this problem. I figured looser arms and shoulders may change the fit. The dress fit my top half much better in a size up--unfortunately, the rest of the dress was just too big and I was drowning in it. I opted for a totally different dress/slip that I am very happy with. I think this piece will work for some girls--just not on my arms or body type. My shoulders are about 15.5 inches or so across and the small was too tight with the medium being loose. If you are very thin/slender/long or thin petite, this dress might work very well for you. I'm 5'3", but 140lbs. I'm lean, but not slender. I'm 36C and I didn't have bust trouble with the small or medium, although my bust may have played a role in why my arms and shoulders felt off. Anyhow, it's really pretty, I wish it had worked for me.
