Rated 4 out of 5Â by FreeLove It'll Do
First, the dress I received was a true black, so maybe FP has since changed the coloring bc of all the complaints about it being a washed black/grey. Mine is definitely black and I washed it on gentle cold and it is still a true black. The cotton is a heavy cotton and I was hoping for something a little lighter but I do live in Aspen so it will work for fall. I ended up trimming about 2-3" off if though because the back was soooo long! I am 5'5. It is a raw hem, so I just used my nice farbic shears to trim and it looked fine. I am a little disappointed with the way the top fits. I am large chested 36DD (just had a baby) and the top part is long, it just accentuates how huge my boobs are right now but the stretchy fabric does allow you to scrunch it up and make it a little shorter on the boob part.The rubber seal on the inside of the top, does keep it in place, so you could get away with not wearing a bra, for the not so large chested ladies. The pockets are cute but I hate the piping down the middle, I wish you could see that in the photo. All in all, I am going to keep it because its not that bad and will be nice to have a nice black dress to dress up or down. Just beware of the length and the heavy weight cotton. Like I said though, I trimmed mine and it was fine. Although, I would prefer not to have to cut a dress that costs this much. Oh well, it'll do.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by lynds was hoping for more
the fit and quality of fabric is right on point, but like other reviewers have mentioned, this dress is not a true black but a faded black. I was hoping for something that looked NEW, not like it had already been washed a dozen times. going back, and trying the striped version!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Jerica715 Not what i hoped
I ordered this dress in a small and the fit was good and the fabric was comfortable. the color, like the other reviewers have said, is a little faded but wasn't as bad/grey as i thought it would be. But, i hated the seam going down the middle of the front panel. it just seems to cheapen the look. Also, while the fabric was comfortable, overall it just didn't seem like the dress was worth $100. sending this one back.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by michelle_J DISAPPOINTED
I purchased this dress in the striped version and fell in love. The fit was perfect and very flattering so when I saw it available in black I had to have it. What a disappointment! The color was a faded black, very washed out and worn looking. I ordered size medium same as I got in the striped version, but this one was tighter and the fit was not flattering. Back to the store it went.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by discosyl Sad, it could have been a winner if........
Received today and I have to say I am disappointed on two things
1. The colour like one of your reviewer it is a dark grey faded black colour which makes it look it has been washed its not appealing at all there are what look like streaks but wether these would come off in the wash who knows
2. Length is way way to long but the fit is "flattering" but I'm sceptical on the rubber seal around the top area from experience they never last long
This dress could have looked "awesome " but the colour really lets it down for me it doesn't feel like I've bought a new dress it looks second hand
I feel bad for stating this dress but the negatives out way the positives I will have to send this one back
The colour looks nothing like what is advertised but I still love FP

I literally just got this dress in the mail...if you are on the fence about this dress, GET IT!! This dress is extremely flattering. I have an hourglass figure..def busty and hippy with a very small waist and this dress fits perfectly! I got a S...(as I usually run a S in FP dresses)...Im a 36large C...the material is a little heavier than I envisioned it to be, but the feel and shape of this dress is perfect!! I was hesitant at first bc of the pockets (girls with hourglass figures do not need any more width!) but they are actually flattering! The high low cut also makes this dress cute...Perfect perfect black dress to dress up or keep casual!! I also purchased the Kristal's Striped Maxi which is pretty much the same cut but but striped...(extremely flattering as well!!!) Can't say enough good things about this dress...Love Love Love it!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by arowanfaerie great black dress
bought this dress to wear to an evening wedding in southern california and it's exactly what i wanted it to be, a little bohemian and unexpected. it's a heavy weight knit jersey material that keeps shape, but stretchy and very comfortable. it has a no slip rubber strip at the top which does the job and isn't uncomfortable either. i don't even notice it.
i think this can be dressed up or down, not super formal obviously, but with the right accessories and shoes definitely works for an evening out; with flat sandals for day.
it is on the long side but it has a raw hem so trimming up to fit shouldn't be a problem.
i highly recommend.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by corinnemarie Not so much
I really really wanted to like this dress. It arrived kind of dirty from the packaging so it looks faded and grey not black. Its a very heavy material and the top fits nice but overall something just isnt there.
