Rated 5 out of 5Â by lemarciel Sizing is unpredictable
Everything i own from FP is size xs. I am 5'3" 118 lbs 34-26-37. This dress was too tight in an xs. I could put it on but the lace was pulling apart in the back ( my butt is a little big for my body size just for reference) It must be really inconsistent because some people say it was big ??? I ordered a small and will have to see how it goes, hopefully not too big because this one was close. Otherwise it is a really pretty dress and the purple is lovely in person.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by RockyMountain perfect cut for most people
I took measurements and ordered true to size, and it fits fine. I can see why some are ordering small, as the fabric has enough give that a size smaller would give a form-fitted look. I'm wearing the dress to a lake wedding, so it can look a little more casual and loose. The pictures make the fabric look like the lace is a satin material, but it is a matte cotton. The shape is great if you have curves, but it won't work if you have a slim figure because it will look boxy. I bought the sand coloured in large and it can be dressy, or casual. This is one of the best deals on FP. I love this dress.
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 4 out of 5Â by mgillgannon1 Beautiful dress... but not for me.
I ordered this for my son's wedding, but it sadly made me look matronly. I'm fairly slender, 34-26-36, but this dress made me look square. Widened my waist and minimized my bust so everything ran together. I was sad because the lavender color and lace is lovely. Unlike the other reviewers, I did not think it ran large. I was worried because there were no XS left, but the S fit fine, while a lot of FP S's are large on me. I think this dress would work well for someone either hour-glass shaped or very tall and slender, like the model.
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 1 out of 5Â by lauraTO stretched out up top
It's a beautiful dress and fit perfectly from the waist down, but the top half was really baggy and the lace along the top sagged and kept folding in on itself. It seemed like it had been stretched at some point, especially along the stomach. Suspiciously, it also came without a tag attached so I'm assuming someone else wore it, stretched it and then returned. I'm really disappointed at the lack of quality but since I already paid customs I can't decide whether it's worth returning and the real problem is now I'm stuck without a dress for an upcoming wedding in a couple of days.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by sl1717 Meh -- a bit loose
I got this in the sand colour (looks better online than in person) in XS (106lbs, 5'2) and it was quite loose. It fit nicely around the butt, but the bust and waist area was slightly loose so the dress didn't look that great. The quality of the lacey material also was not good. Lengthwise, it was slightly longer than I wanted it to be. The slip underneath hit about 2.5 inches above my knees. Have to return.
