Rated 5 out of 5Â by candace23 AMAZING!
I am 5"10 130 lbs. I usually wear an XS in free people dresses-in the real world I'm true to a small. The XS was perfect! I initially wanted the other floral combination this dress came in but when I saw this dress in the store and tried on-I was sold! Its a great fit if your tall and thin-can't speak for the length on those that are shorter. The colors are super flattering against any skin color. I was concerned about the ties on the side since I am modest-I pulled them a little tighter and wore a bandeau underneath and it worked perfectly. I got a ton of compliments wearing it and it's so comfortable I want to wear it everyday!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by jessicaannlee124 perfect summer dress
I am 5'6, 130 lbs and a 34 A. I purchased this dress in a Small and I love the fit--it is long enough and the scoop back is so sexy, as are the side laces. My one complaint is that the straps were set too far to the sides. I wrapped the top material in a little bit and sewed it to the straps, which helped. It sort of tweaked the side laces a bit too far up into my armpits, but I'd prefer that to having my chest fully exposed.
I highly suggest wearing this dress while listening to Shakira's "Gypsy" while walking down a windy street in the sunshine. You will not regret it. It can be worn without a belt, but I like a leather belt to break up all the floral.

I'm soo sad to say that I wore this dress for the second time and the strap snapped. It didn't even come apart at the seam, the fabric shredded apart! :( it was my favorite dress. I bought both colors because I loved it so much. I'm just disappointed that its so fragile. My other other dress is starting to do te same and I only wore it once. I'm free people obsessed and just sad about this dress
Rated 5 out of 5Â by jessthemes LOVE! BUY IT
I love this dress. The print is really nice. Also the fabric feels fine to me. I am 5'6 120lbs. I bought an extra small. I also bought the navy. I have broad shoulders so i dont really have an issue with the side ribboning . It does run big. It looks super cute as a skirt also

I am a 34A and bought an xs, and the fabric would not cover my chest AT ALL--it clearly needed MUCH more in the chest to fill it out/pull it up. The whole top half just feels weird to me, with all of the criss-crossing straps. You clearly can't wear it without a bra, but whatever bra you wear will become a major feature of the dress--and on me, would still look odd. So basically it becomes a skirt... no wonder everyone styles it with a sweater on top! I gave it two stars since the skirt half seemed nice enough and prettyish, though I'm not the biggest fan of the print in person.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by windsorw it's not perfect but I still love it
first I tried it at the store and I just thought the fit was awkward. but I just kept seeing style pics and the print just looked so gorgeous so I decided to get it. This time when I adjust the ties right, it actually fits better. I think i can wear it both with a belt and without. And i got the ivory one, the color is great, very bright and rich.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by FPMandaBurls Finally, a maxi dress for short girls!
I have always wanted a maxi dress but I am only 5'0 and they are all so long on me! When we got this in the store I was skeptical and didn't even try it on at first because of my past experiences with maxi dresses. Until my SM told me to try it... When I did I seriously almost fell over. IT. WASN'T. TOO. LONG. In fact, it was perfect! The ONLY complaint I have is that it's a little loose but that just makes it comfy. If you want to create more of a waist, just throw on a belt! So if you're little like me, and love maxi dresses, this is the dress for you! It's beautiful paired with the double wrap waist best and the scallop edge crop underneath! Also, because of the lace up side a bandeau will show nicely underneath, too. For winter it looks amazing with the shaggy knit pull over or a long cardigan! Loads of ways to experiment! :D

Just got this one in ivory!
For reference- 5'1, 34DD-- typically a S or 28 in FP.
This dress is undeniable beautiful, just the way it fits is a little strange.
I tried on both small and medium; the small didn't cover my chest properly so I decided to go with medium even though its a little too wide. I also tie the "criss cross" straps towards the back to give this dress a little more shape. As for length... its just short of touching the floor on me. The hem is raw so I'm just going to hack off 3-4 inches so it hits me mid-shin like everyone else.
I'm in love with this piece and do recommend it-- it's just not perfect.
