Rated 4 out of 5Â by loverofstars Pretty but see-through!
I really loved this dress and wanted it to be perfect but like another user said, the panel in the middle is not swiss dots but a floral pattern instead, not sure why they're still using this photo and description as it definitely is not accurate. Also, it is so thin that you can see everything underneath! I bought it for a trip and didn't have time to get a slip lining added or anything, but I did order some Nippies, silicon reusable pasties that are flesh-toned, so that I could solve that problem at least, and I wore floral shorts underneath to add some color and coverage. The Nippies worked great, but as I'm a 32D, I should have gone with a small in the dress instead of XS as the XS seemed to not cover enough boobage. For the rest of sizing reference, I'm 5'7" and 125lbs, 25" waist, 36" hip and normally wear a 26, and 2 in dresses. It is a pretty long dress and with a short heel, it was fine for me. I wore it with a 1" heeled bootie.

I am so happy that I finally decided to get this dress! I feel beautiful whenever I wear it :). It's very comfortable too - perfect for hot summer days. I sometimes pair it with the Softly Woven Jacket (in ivory) for when it gets breezy or indoors with air conditioning on. I got the one in moss, and happy enough with the color (it has more blue shade in the pic than the actual color).
The only reason I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because there is no lining and it is very sheer! So I had to add my own lining (thin silk, to keep the flowing look and the cool feel). I also had to shortened the hem quite a bit as I don't like wearing high heels (I am 5'4", and this dress is about 2.5" too long for me). No problem with the bust area (it's perfect for smaller breasts - up to 34B), the gathered style hide my nipples well enough :).
I highly recommend this dress!

Â by brookieB Totally see through
I bought this dress to get married in on the beach. It's completely see through! There's no possible way to wear this dress without bringing it to a seamstress and adding a slip.
The fit was cute though. I'm 5'3" 120lbs and 34C. I ordered a small and was pleased with the coverage. If I was keeping it, I would hem a couple of inches and maybe take off some fabric around the skirt. But it's going back.

This is a great summer dress. Beware, it is very sheer. I had a seamstress add a lining to the skirt. The dress seems to run a little large, I could have probably ordered a medium.

I had the most difficult time deciding between the white and the moss version of this dress. When it came down to it, althought i LOVED the moss, i could not get over how cute the white polka dots were in the lower sheer section of the white dress. I ended up ordering the white for that reason alone. I overnighted this because I wanted to wear it to Lollapalooza in Chicago and it was already Wednesday! (OOPS!) When I received it, I was super bummed because the sheer section is NOT white polka dots, but insteadt iy is the same floral design shown in the moss version. Now, I'll be honest--the dress is gorgeous and I received so many compliments (and even got photographed by ChicagoMag for best lolla fashion!! ;) (thank you FreePeople!)--BUT it is still not as pictured and if I had the time, I would have WITHOUT A DOUBT, returned for the moss. The moss can be worn in more environments and would match a lot better with my skin tone, but I am a polka-dot lover so I could not resist the white. BUYERS BEWARE: the sheer section is not as pictured, but however, still a beautiful dress. I love it still, but it is way too out of my price range to not get exactly what I thought I was going to receive. As a loyal buyer, this made me unhappy.
Aside for the design, the fit is very particular.
I am 5"6/5"7 and 135 lbs. I ordered the size small and the back kept dipping more than i wanted, even when tied tight. The XS would have worked a lot better. This is definitely not a dress for the large-chested. As fr undergarments, i wore "Breast Petals" by *Lingerie Solutions* that can be found at Target. That way, there was no sheer issues and if by chance a nip slip was to occur, there would be a skin toned, cute, little flower! (LOL). For underwear, I brought with me both a nude LACE thong, and nude boy shorts. I suggest wearing what you feel more comfortable in. Honestly, it IS a sheer dress, but as long as you keep the undergarments simple, nudle, and lacey, you will have zero problems. PERFECT for a summer festival, beachwear, and anything in warmer weather. There are 3 ties: (1) above the neck as the halter, (2)across the back to keep the triangles from revealing any nipslips on the outer sides, and (3) near the very lower back to keep from being too loose and revealing any underwear.
Beautiful dress, I hope this review helps.

I am in love with this dress! I feel like a Greek goddess in it! Very ethereal in feel.
The fit is wonderful and would work on a variety of bodies as there are ties in 3 places- the halter neck, around the torso, and then at the waist/hips.
Having said all this, yes, other reviewers are correct that the dress is fairly sheer- you can't see through it exactly (I didn't get the ivory color, so I can't comment on seeing through that one), but in sunlight you definitely could
make out a full outline of legs and body. However, in considering the top of this dress, as well as the almost completely backless aspect...I think that being able to see the outline of your legs isn't that much more revealing. It would be easy enough to throw a slip underneath if you wanted, or just use boy-shorts as some other reviews have done.
The ties have little embellishments on them so that you jingle faintly as you walk. Just a really beautiful and sexy dress all around!!!

I want to live in this dress. The moss color is absolutely beautiful and the medium fits perfectly. For reference my measurements are 36C-30-39. True, the fabric is a little see-thru, and anyone larger than a C-cup may have coverage issues, but the gorgeous low back and details of the dress more than make up for it. If you are on the fence at all about it, buy this dress. Your husband will thank you for it! :-)

I could not walk 10 feet in NYC without getting stopped for a compliment or to ask me where the dress was from. I solved the sheerness issue with a tiny nude mini slip and a backless stick on bra. Obsessed with the dress and can't wait to wear it to Lollapalooza in August :)
