Rated 5 out of 5Â by Natty52 Cool and sexy
With all the coverage that you will need if you wear nude underwear. Absolutely perfect for the hot summer in the Midwest, airy and sexy. Perhaps a bit too sexy for some occasions. Love the bodice of pintucks.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by nicolett So pretty!
I went into my local FP store today for something else but saw this dress in the tea color, tried it on, and couldn't say no! The lace is really soft and intricate, and definitely doesn't feel cheap at all. Normally I'm a s or m in FP sizes, but there was only one of these left in an xs, and it fit perfectly (for ref. 5ft 7, 140, 34D). The waist and skirt have a LOT of fabric and the side ties can be let out a little to accommodate your chest, so if you're ordering online, I'd say to size down. Also because I have a larger bust it looks a little like a maternity dress when worn plain, but it's absolutely gorgeous belted. The skirt is unlined, so grab some nude bike shorts for underneath. I'm going to be wearing this all summer, thanks FP<3
Rated 4 out of 5Â by klw Cute but somewhat deceiving photo..
Ordered this dress in a medium. I am 5'10" 165. Beware, it's TOTALLY SEE THROUGH. It's very cute, but a slip, unless it's the right one, might look weird. I have breasts that are on the larger side and this should be worn without a bra and that didn't work for me. Had to return it. I think I was a bit too old for it.

I bought the blue in S and it is so gorgeous on. The XS would have fitted also, but I think that would have made it tight under the arms with the crossover tie. Highly recommend this dress. It looks nicer with a bra on, on me any way, seems to give a nicer shape. The sides don't have to be as open as on the model, that you can adjust by tightening. So comfortable and sexy, but not too revealing if you want to hide lunch! I am slim and in my 40's and appreciate the room. I don't really need to hide, but the tummy is not as firm as it used to be. I am size 25 jeans and approx. 37 inch bust if that helps. The fabric is super soft and flowy, really makes you feel wonderful wearing it. Oh and very see through so a slip is recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ellcie agonized over this one....
ordered the ivory in a small and agonized over whether i should send it back or not mostly because the straps kept falling down and i knew this would drive me crazy. i sew and i tried figuring out how i could move them but because they are attached right at a corner, i couldnt figure it out (it would leave the corner hanging if i moved the strap) i tied the straps on the sides at the back like a reviewer suggested and it made the dress look much better by pulling it in under my chest for a fitted look. it is very pretty and a small fit my 36C chest because the sides are adjustable with the straps, the length was perfect-im 5'3 and it would look good on any height. the ivory colour is beautiful-old looking. in the end i, unfortunately, sent it back because i knew i would be pulling the straps up all day. i dont think a different size wouldve fixed the problem.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by tarahmichelle Pretty and romantic, but a little misleading
I love this dress, but the pictures seem to suggest that there's some sort of slip underneath; however, the lace pleats are completely see-through, and unless you want everyone to have a nice glance at your undies, you'll need to buy a separate slip. I was a little disappointed by this, if only because I was looking forward to wearing this dress as a sort of airy throw-on-by-itself kind of look. That's not happening. But it is a very pretty dress! I just kind of wish the description and pictures were a touch more straightforward about the see-through pleats.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Catwoman Romantic, versatile, fun dress
I got this dress in the soft grey color, and I really love it. It isn't meant to be a figure hugging dress, but instead has a almost naughty Jane Austin heroine feel to it. It is quite transparent due to the lace inserts, so you must either plan on an under layer, or be very daring! I've worn the dress out for Easter with a long sleeved FP shirt underneath on top and a slip/grey tights & boots below. I do plan to try it over a lavender seamless slip (sized up there for a longer fit as they tend to role up). The side lacing is really a great detail, although I find that even drawn in tight the dress is a bit loose in the bust area. But it's OK because the dress has a less structured feel. You just have to be confident that your body lines show through the flow of the dress. The rayon fabric is substantial, and I can imagine the straps needing reinforcement, although this has not been a problem for me. Can't wait to wear this to parties, museums and dinners this summer!
