This is an FP BEACH dress that slips on over the head. Size M measures: Front Length = 48", Back Length = 50", Straps from front to back = 16", Circumference around seam above chest = 33" (this seam and the sleeve caps are the only parts of the dress without much give), Waist = 31", Hips = 38". On the negative side; the straps tend to fall down (can be remedied with snaps on threads to secure the dress to bra straps), the bust is fairly small and the hips are comparatively wide. On the plus side: The fabric is soft, it drapes well, the flounce at bottom moves nicely, and, after wearing it for a while it "customizes itself to the body". My friend's daughter is considering ordering these for her bridesmaids. A good opportunity at the sale price.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Nickname1 cute but has a weird shape
I bought the midnight blue and the color is like shown in the pictures and overall it is a very nice dress. It has a really nice silhouette and hangs beautifully. It also has a higher quality than I expected; from pictures, it looks like a really thin cotton dress, but it has 2 layers stitched. However, it has some serious sizing issues. I am a short but slim person (5' 2" & 96 lbs) and FP dresses always runs a bit large on me; but large equally on everywhere. For this dress, XS fits me a little bit snug on the bust (although I am only 32B) and runs large at the hips! So I really did not understand for what kind of body shape they are made for. I feel like it has to wrap your hips in order to look really nice. As the previous reviewer said, maybe it flatters hourglass body shape better, but I do not know how this is possible since the top part is really snug (it can stretch though after some wear). And as she also said, the sleeves keep falling down all the time. I don't know whether it is worth to send this back at this sale price, but I would definitely return it if I had paid the full price. I will try to make it work somehow, so if you are eager to make some alterations, go for it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Theozralian Flattering and comfortable
This is a great dress, Im an true hourglass, 5'7" and its extremely flattering to my figure (well so I am told!). True to size but does stretch out a little after wearing but not so much it losses its shape. Sits an inch or two higher on my legs than the model. Only downfall is the cap sleeves fall down.. but durable and can dress up or down easily.
