Rated 5 out of 5Â by Pixie11 comfortably casual
I spotted this in the FP store and was immediately drawn to the heather grey. In the XS the arms were super tight. I have thin noodle arms and was surprised, so I tried the small and it fit perfectly.
The dress is flowy and cut too high in the front to be worn with out the proper coverage. Tights, or cute small shorts will be necessary.
The fabric is super soft. The top is well fitted so that although the rest of the dress bellows, it works well because it'll still show off your limbs.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by infinitesmiles terrible quality.
i have never been so disappointed from what i've ordered from free people before. i got two of these, the flamingo pink (last one in stock and i grabbed it) and the grey heather in size xs. i'm usually an xs at free people. i'm 5'3", 110lbs, 32C for reference. i have shorter legs but the back dip hem ended about mid calf on me.
first thing, the material. the grey heather was so uncomfortable and was not 100% cotton. i see that they have changed that in the description now. and for sizing, it's tight at the top and the arms. the front hem is also quite short. the flamingo is so comfortable and soft and stretchy and is 100% cotton. so the sizing is a little different too, as another reviewer has said.
next specifically the flamingo dress. i LOVE the color and ordered it right when i was notified my size was back in stock. but sadly, i don't know if it's even worth keeping and trying to fix because the button down front and the line in the front is totally crooked. it's not even subtle, it's so obvious. i thought it was just me putting it on wrong or something and i tried adjusting the dress, but no matter what, it was just very very crooked. both holding the dress up and lying it flat shows the lines on the back and front don't line up, either. i'm so upset over this lack of quality control. i have never encountered this problem before at free people. now i guess i know why it was returned.
also, the tag on the flamingo pink dress says intimately while the grey heather dress says fp beach.
i really really want to keep the flamingo dress because it fits so nicely, the color is beautiful, and it feels great, but the terrible alignment kind of ruins it. and now it's sold out. :[

I really, really, really like this dress! It is so versatile, which makes it so much fun!!! it's definitely something that can be worn all year round. I was a little nervous about the 'high to low' look given that I am 5'3 but, to my surprise, the dress is very flattering on me. If you are shorter you can definitely get away with wearing it as a dress. I absolutely love this dress. I have it in the light army color and am seriously considering purchasing it in the coral color.

I really wished this dress worked, but it didn't! The fit was very odd, I'm 5'9 and 135lbs so I ordered the small in heather grey. However, it was tight on my shoulders and short in the front. It just looked like a long tunic or something. Really wasn't impressed, and wished it would have fit. It could have been because of my broad shoulders but i'm not too sure.

This dress looks so pretty online but not recommend if your body type are not like the model. I tried it with a skinny belt and still looked weird. I wanted to love the dress but unfortunately had to return it.

I bought in the gray heather and I do love it but only when I belt it. There is so much extra fabric in the back that it is simply too baggy and kind of unflattering and also the arms are very tight, however, like I said, once it's belted in the middle it looks really adorable. I wore it with knee high socks, boots and a leather jacket and got lots of compliments.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by lautie83 not as soft as I expected
I love the lazy look, so I purchased this dress thinking it would be a great lounge soft and cozy dress, unfortunately the fabric was a lot more stiff than I thought. The fitting was a bit tight in the shoulders and sleeves, and again the fabric wasn't as soft as I imagined. I am sending it back.

This is a very cute dress on. A little too short at the front so I may try it with leggings. The fabric is very thin, I would have preferred it to be a little thicker. When I first tried the dress on I could not get my arms through the sleeves and I am a small build, size 8-10 normally, but when I tried it on for the second time it had stretched and my arms fit much better. So it appears that the fabric will give with wear. It is also a tight fit around the bust area. I am 35/36 inches around the bust and bought the XS. Not sure if the S would have been better or too big. Having said all that, the dress does look really cute on especially with a wide belt. I was able to re adjust the way the dress sits by pulling it up through the belt, looked very trendy. So many ways to wear this one, can't wait to try.
