Rated 2 out of 5Â by Bam Such high hopes!
I am SOOO bummed! I have been eyeing this dress and waiting for it to come into my local store. It is the perfect XMAS dress but unfortunately is way too funky of a fit. I am normally a size 6 and the 10 was still tight on my hips. It fits like its in between a body con style and a shift.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by xoll Stunning but fit is a bit off
I ordered this dress in the mint green in size 6 (I am usually a 4-6 and 34D bust, but have hips size 2-4). The fit was very boxy on me; top portion was a bit loose, no waist definition whatsoever. The velvet is also shiny and sturdy, and the dress is made very well. I didn't have any problems with the arm holes being too large - you can definitely wear a bra underneath the dress. I also wore the dress backwards to see how it looked - looked great, but the mesh/beaded part is a bit see-through so keep that in mind. The fabric doesn't stretch at all. The hips were loose enough to allow comfortable movement and no clinging to my body, but I will exchange for the size 4 and hopefully it will fit me better. The mint green in person is also more rich in color and a bit darker than what the photos depict.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by chaostheory Surprisingly stunning
This is a great versatile dress. The fit is comfortable and flattering and the material is great.
I have worn the dress out by itself for more formal occasions, but I've also worn a long sleeve tee underneath with leggings for more causal outings during the winter.
Key feature--the fabric is pretty thick so.....it can hide a food baby. It is my go-to dinner dress for this reason.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Kait_S Odd fit
I saw this in the store and loved the mint color and beading on the back, it was very striking. Unfortunately it was a very awkward fit on me. It fit snuggly in the hips yet was very baggy in the waist, I even went down a size and it was still way too loose in the waist on me. Perhaps if you have small hips it will fit you perfectly as a shift dress, just did not work on me. It's a pity because I do love the design.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by CLondres Weird shape, still cute
I agree with what the other reviewer said about the shape being not a shift, yet not a bodycon. I have the size 8 (UK size 12) and I think it's about true to size around the hips as a fitted shift dress, but then the top half is really loose and kinda shapeless.
The pictures in the model make it look loose all over but I think that's because this model has NO hips. I would say this dress looks much better on a woman with curves rather than the model shown. The fabric is thick and substantial so doesn't move a great deal or cling
The issue i have is with the straps - they're really long and the arm holes are really low. So it's tricky to wear.
But on the plus side the fabric is gorgeous and the back is really special. And it doesn't look/feel as though it'll fall apart. I'll still wear it!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by annelizamack Too big for me :(
This dress is exquisite and wonderful quality. I ordered the sea mist colour which is even nicer in person and a great buy at the sale price. Unfortunately it is way too big for me. I am normally an 8 but ordered the 10 because I didn't want it figure hugging tight - it just looks TOO big though. I wish FP did international exchanges. Or bring FP to Australia!!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Issa13 The fit is a little off...
I wanted to like this dress so much. Unfortunately, as other reviewers have mentioned, the fit was funky. It was fitted from the hips down, but loose in the top. It was really unflattering. Other than that, the material is high quality and the beading is stunning. I guess it just wasn't made for hourglass figures. It is TTS. My usual FP size fit really well.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by lillys97 Runs very small, but beautiful dress
I bought a size twelve dress because I would rather it big than small and I had to get next day shipping in order to have it for my event. However, the dress was SO small in comparison to the picture. I normally buy a size eight or medium from free people, but after reading the review I thought best to go bigger, and I am happy I did. Although it fit like a bodycon, it still looked great and is very comfortable, however it didn't fit on me like it did on the model.
