Rated 5 out of 5Â by amccall1 LOVE it
I bought this dress in purple for a wedding that my boyfriend was the best man for- it fit a little awkwardly in the stomach as it bunched out a little, but it was perfect everywhere else. I wore it with nude pumps and got a TON of compliments. I'm 5'7" 130 lbs and wore a small. I actually went in the store for it but they only had a small in black- they ordered the small in purple for me from Las Vegas and it came with a handwritten card. :) Definitely recommend the dress and Free People.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by theurbanaesthete Runs large, fits awkwardly
I am a sucker for lace and collect "evening" dresses, so this was a no-brainer for me. Sadly, it fits horribly. You can actually tell it doesn't fit well in the pictures, but I took a chance anyway. I normally wear a small (US 4, I am 5'9", 34C, 27 waist, 36 hips) but I often order XS in Free People since their sizing runs large typically. I ordered an XS in this and it's WAY too big, it feels like it's for a busty US 6. Ugh. Fits so boxy and defines you nowhere...makes your boobs look small, waist look wide, and hips look boxy. The piece itself is lovely, but don't buy unless you are comfortable tailoring or enjoy a boxy cut.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by msurma47 It's true, size down
I had to jump through SO many hoops for this dress, but I'm glad I did. I waited too long before I ordered the purple lace version and it sold out. After trying online and calling 3 different stores over a 2 week period, I finally found one!
I had read the previous comment about sizing down, so I ordered a medium (which I am usually) and a small just in case.
So glad I did!
The medium fits, but it was just a little too loose in the stomach. The small fits like a glove. It's SO worth the price! The detailing is beautiful and it gives me an butt that won't quit, especially in heels.
If in doubt, I would order two sizes and send the bigger one back, it's less hassle than finding out one is too big and then trying to order the other and having it sold out (which this dress seems to do a lot).
The dress gets a 5, for price and for quality. The pain it was to get doesn't have any affect in the rating.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by chickied large but not that large
I usually don't fit into Free People stuff but based on the reviews that this runs large and that it just looked liked exactly what I wanted, I gave it a go. Nope. Returned.

Ordered for my birthday party. I like the cranberry color. So nice and sexy. Just love it. Nicely fitted.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by DrModel Not for my body type
I tried this on at my local FP store as I was planning to order this in red (deep cranberry) for an Oscar party, however the fit just wasn't made for my body type. I'm 33-24-35, and the XS was more fitted in the bust and hips, but baggy and bunching around the waist. I decided not to order it for this reason, but this dress may be better suited on someone with a more straight frame, or narrower hips. Aside from the fit, the lace was beautiful, the purple haze color was amazing, and even though the material was stretchy and comfortable, it looked very dressy.

After reading all of the reviews I went with xs- it is form-fitted and beautiful however, I think this would have been fine in the small if I didn't want a body con dress- well worth the money..
Rated 5 out of 5Â by GypsySpirit Beautiful dress!
I ordered this dress for a wedding and once I recieved it, I'm so glad I did! I was debating between a S vs XS, and after reading reviews, went with the XS. It fits very comfortably, and it is form fitting. It looks so elegant and can be worn for many different occasions. I got the purple but now just saw the cream colored, gorgeous!! Would probably clash with the bride though so I am happy with the purple. Overall, very beautiful...another reason to love the uniqueness and originality of free people!
