Rated 4 out of 5Â by Betsy-sue Not as amazing as I was expecting it to be.
I had very high expectations for this dress but when it arrived I was surprisingly dissapointed! Definitely not what I expected, it's so simple apart from the foiling. As it is still a very pretty dress, I deliberated over keeping it for at least a week before deciding to return it. I have my eye on a few more dresses which I would much prefer, so I made the right decision to return.
I bought a small and for ref I am a 32DD, 26, 34 UK size 8-10, US 4-6. This dress was actually lose around my waist.

I'm 5'5, 120 pounds, and 36-25-36. I wear a 28G bra in most styles - I'm a fairly significant hourglass. As a result of my curves, few items from FreePeople will fit me, and from the online pictures, this looked like one that didn't have a chance. But I saw it on a rack in a store and loved the lilac (it's richer in person), and decided to give it a try anyway. Based on the size chart, my bust should be in a small, and my waist and hips in an XS. I tried the small, and it fit beautifully. The bust fits fine (I tightened the straps for my short-waistedness), the dress comes in for the waist (not tight, but comes in enough to show off my waist), and flares nicely for my hips, showing off my "hourglass" and giving the skirt a nice flow. It's also not risque-short for my 5'5 shape.

I am 5'2", 95 lbs. and 32B and the XS fit well in the top, but a bit loose in the waist and slightly long - it went a few inches above my knee. The quality is great and I love the adjustable straps! The ombre is very subtle yet elegant.

Only worn it once and I have received many compliments. However, I always fit a size small at FP, and the small for this dress fit everywhere except for the bust. My advice is order a size up if you happen to be busty. The darker part of the dress is a bit sticky, but in the blackberry combo it seems to flow a lot better in person.

I ordered the black in a medium and it cites me perfect! I kinda have a big butt and usually dresses are way shorter in the back but this dress is the perfect length. I love it!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by blue9girl9 Gorgeous but SHORT
First of all, a small is my go-to size in Free People. I am around 140 lbs and 5'9. If this model is 5'10, I find it hard to believe she's wearing a small unless the length of this dress varies by dress. I find it way too short and not age appropriate for me. I wanted to wear it New Year's Eve. I was also terrified about the size of the top until I discovered the zipper, but it's still a little hard to get on.
Once on, it doesn't feel too tight on me, but looks a little bad in the area around my front shoulders. I fear that sizing up might be too loose though.
Other than that it's gorgeous and the lining is super soft and comfortable.
I really love it but am on the fence about returning it or even sizing up. I think a shorter girl could pull it off much better than I can. I got it in the black - very funky and festive.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Miranders Such a disappointment!
I ordered this dress in a small in the blackberry combo and was very disappointed. What looks like a pretty ombre effect online actually looks like a dress dipped in paint in person. The bottom of the dress has a very unappealing and almost sticky texture and looks vaguely like an oil spill. Also, the seam that should go across the waist droops at the sides in a very unflattering way. The straps are also slightly too long. All in all, the dress is not nearly as pretty in person as shown online

So I bought this dress for my senior homecoming dance and I was unsure of the size to choose. I have 34E bust and am 5'6'' and about 140 pounds. The only sizes available were a M or L in the white and L in the lilac color. After reading the reviews I decide to order the M white dress. I got it in the mail this morning and was slightly disappointed with it. For a hundred dollar dress it was just alright. The straps do give it a cheaper look but that wasn't the reason. For one the top fit perfectly except for the fact that it was really see through so I have no idea what I'm going to do for a bra and I definitely need one. But the bottom of the dress was huge. It is SO long. It practically touches my knee. I wish it was a little shorter. But other than that it is a beautiful dress it is doable for my homecoming because I don't have enough time to buy another dress but I wouldn't wear it again personally/
