Rated 3 out of 5Â by Beaglebabe cute dress, problematic slip
I love this dress, it fits perfectly and I didn't have to have it hemmed. I am a size 4 and I'm 5'7". The slip they attached underneath, however, is very problematic. It is very straight and unforgiving. It doesn't stretch or move with you. It was fine just as long as I was standing, but sitting, forget it! Too bad they didn't make it out of more flexible material. It reminds one of a girdle. Fortunately for me, I have a super-duper seamstress and she is removing the slip. But as I said., the dress is adorable, I just don't know what anyone was thinking when they attached that lining. I'll wear my own slip, thank you and it won't feel like a girdle. i did purchase this on sale.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by AzuraSkye A Perfect Purchase!
When I came across this dress online, I knew I had to have it. Yet, I was uncertain if the length of the dress was going to be an issue - since I'm 5'5" and I run into this very often. To my surprise, the length was perfect! I'm a size 0, and this fitted like a dream! Such a beautiful dress, and I'm so happy to add this into my wardrobe - and it's perfect for fall! I wore it this weekend for a getaway to the Catskills, and received plenty of compliments on it! It's a keeper alright.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by megandell GREAT DRESS!!
Buy this!! It's AWESOME!!
Don't know why FP didn't play this one up more(maybe put it in a lookbook, catalog??) so Vivienne Westwood circa 1989. Looks great with sweaters and jackets, casual and fun. LOVE this and it's a great price!
Will wear for years!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lowen Good Dress for Sale Price
I had been eyeing this dress for a while and finally decided to buy it at the really great sale price. It arrived today and here are my thoughts: Contrary to what the other reviewer said, I think this dress runs a tad small for Free People. The model looks pretty thin and she is wearing a size 6--which is my usual size and she looks thinner than I do. I decided to size up to an 8 based on the model, which was a smart move. The dress fits just about right, not too tight and not loose. The skirt is lined ( I suppose for warmth because the skirt is not sheer) and you should expect the lining to be snug if you have hips or booty. It's not uncomfortably tight, but again, I would say it's snug in contrast to the somewhat flowy skirt. The colors of the skirt are also much more subdued. I expected a skirt with off-white, red and black plaid details and what it looks like in real life is a taupe-ish grey color (the black and red don't seem too affected). It's still very pretty and great for Fall/Winter, but not nearly as bright as what is shown in the photos. With the right size, you should be able to go braless or wear a bra--nice to have the choice. I have also chosen to wear this one with a belt, which breaks up the top and bottom nicely. The skirt is surprisingly light-weight and VERY long. I am 5'3" and I will need it hemmed at least 4.5 to 5". Overall, I think this is quite a lovely piece for the sale price. I definitely think it's worth it and you should order now if you've been on the fence. For sizing reference, I am 5'3", 36C and a lean 140lbs. I call myself a curvy, petite hourglass and I fit very well in a size 8, but most of my FP clothes are size 6 or Small.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by amyaustin LOVE LOVE LOVE
I am absolutely in love with this dress. Fits true to size and looks absolutely stunning on. I'm a bit frustrated with myself that I brought it at full price and less than 2 weeks later it's less than half price. But I didn't want to risk missing out on this dress. I brought the xs, I'm 156cm and there's about a foot of extra length. I highly recommend snagging this dress.
