Rated 5 out of 5Â by ChinChinChin Just as seen in the pictures
When I saw these during sneak preview for march catalog, I had to have it. I can never pass up a cute relaxed summer dress especially with unique strap design. So I got the dresses small in both black and blue. I skipped the taupe version because I know that I won't look great in the color. When I received the dress in the mail today, I tried it on and it fit just as it does on the model. Just as reference i'm about 5'9" and usually wear xs and s in free people. The chest doesn't lay exactly like it does on the model but I'm 34C so i'm not too surprised but the dress has good weight and it's not see-through. Can't wait to start wearing it!!

I'm 5'3" usually a large in dresses with fp, but I went with the medium. I tried it on just like the model had it on the catalog, with my 4" wedge strappy sandals. The top fit just like the model, the bottom was waaaaayyy to long!!! Needless to say I was disappointed. So I looked at the hem line, and realize there's no stitching. I know how to sew and alter my clothes. I don't suggest you do what I'm about to tell you, unless you know what you're doing or you're tall. My advice take it to your seamstress if you're short like me, if you're tall then leave it alone. I cut a few inches off, following the hemline. The edges still draped 3 inches on the ground with my wedge high heel sandals. This dress is cotton, so I decided to hand wash it, and threw it on delicate cycle to dry. It shrank 3 inches, and now it's PERFECT!!!!! It fits me like it fits the model. I'm waiting on my bandeau bra to wear with the dress. THIS DRESS IS ETHERAL!!!! I LOVE IT!!!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by liza3871 mauve color different but better
This is a beautiful, versatile dress that fits tts. There are two things worth noting: 1.) the dark mauve is a much cooler color in real life--not a full purple but somewhere between that and lavender with a slight brownish/gray cast. For me, that's better, but it definitely looks different than the color on my monitor, which shows a warmer plummy color. The next thing is that this dress is unequivocally sheer. Some reviews mentioned this, but others said it wasn't. Mine is absolutely see-through at the top--a little less so around the skirt because of the folds, but you might want to keep this in mind.
Concerning the length, I'm 5'5" and have no problem with the it if I wear a 2"+ heel. With flats, the sides drag.
Overall, this is a dress with lots of possibilities, and its heavier weight is a plus for me because I will wear it now with a bandeau or tank underneath, then with a long sleeved t and boots in the cooler months. The color works well for fall, too.

I am not typically your maxi dress kind of girl but this one got me. I ordered the blue and it has a slight bit of purple in the color. The fit is amazing, I am an extra small. The movement and lightness give this dress a romantic classy feel. The only thing I don't care for is that the material is pilled. I would have preferred a smoother texture.

I am on the fence about this dress. It's pretty, the color is beautiful (bought it in blue), but I can't figure out if it's flattering or if I look like a whale... It's a whole lot of fabric. Unlike the other reviews, for me, it's not sheer and I don't have a problem with the length (I'm 5'2 and 110 pounds and it slightly drags on the floor if I'm in flats.) So, we'll see what I decide to do. I might keep it if I can pair it with other stuff, but alone, it's not worth it. If you can make it work, awesome. Otherwise, I feel like FP has better maxi's on the site.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Sufiangel nice but not
First I want to say that I LOVE FP, 90% of my wardrobe is from Free People. :)
I bought this in black, returned it, then in mauve, and returned it. I returned the black bc the dress is a beach dress, very sheer, a very flowy, huge cover up. Does not look nearly as elegant as the photo they showed in black which is too bad. I'm going to Paris this summer and thought that would be my fav black dress to wear. The mauve is ok. The color was darker than in the photos. I tried again, but it's just too sheer and in summer I hate to wear layers.

This thing looks like a tent draped. I found nothing flattering about it so its going back

I can't pass up a jersey soft flowey dress and this fits the bill. It does weigh a little bit, but I was not taken back before I opened it. I thought it was an ideal weigh for this type of material. I ordered the blue in XS, my normal FP size. I am 5'2-almost 5'3 and 108 on a good day. It is an oversized dress, but that is the point. From other review I thought I was going to have to hem it for flats, but I was pleasantly surprised I don't have to at all. The front and back do not touch the floor and the sides just hit the floor, so it will have a tad drag, but I don't mind cause I like that look. It is real soft and would recommend it to by it if you are looking for a comfy summer dress!
