Rated 4 out of 5Â by HAS2 Nice fit
I ordered the charcoal in XS. I"m 5'4", 120 lbs, 34 B-C bust, 28" waist and 35" hip. On fitted FP dresses I always struggle with whether to order XS or S. The measurements provided on the website never seem to coincide with how the item actually fits so I don't rely on them. I went with XS on this item since I am fairly small chested. I think the fit is great. It fits very well in the hip and waist and is only a tad tight on the one button that falls at the widest point of my bust but as other reviewers indicated, I intended to wear this open several buttons down with something underneath and it worked great. The description indicates it is sheer. It is. You will definitely have to wear something underneath. At 5'4" I was still able to wear flats without the dress dragging on the floor, which is fabulous because most FP maxi dresses are too long for me. The material is not as soft as I expected and therefore has very little give. It's not an uncomfortable fabric, since it's so light, and while I usually avoid polyester, this one isn't too bad. The only issue I had with the dress is that the button loops were extremely tight, making it a pain to button and unbutton. After spending what felt like eternity unbuttoning the top six buttons with the hopes of stepping into it, I gave up and just went over my head. Since I was leaving it unbuttoned at top, I then only had to button back up two of the buttons...which only took half of eternity. Overall, I think this is a nice, flattering dress that will be light enough to wear most of Spring.

I loved this dress so much but, I didn't even wear this yet and a button on the bottom of the dress fell off. I didn't even unbutton it or pull on it at all. If you buy just be careful of the buttons other wise a beautiful dress.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by quietsurprise Beautiful dress
I just purchased this dress in white at my local FreePeople store. Absolutely love it, fits so beautifully. I am 5'5 107 lbs., purchased xs, fits a little loose in the midsection, but will be a nice summer dress. Length is perfect. I highly recommend
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mjo Nice but very tight at the bust
Just received this nice dress. It is very feminine and beautiful, but tighter at the bust and very sheer. I'm 34D. The top buttons need to be opened when wearing this dress.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by AJLaLa WOW!
Just got this and tried it on this a.m.--LOVE IT! Really flattering fit and the charcoal color is really nice--kind of a brownish color actually which I like a lot. Love the design and flow and ease of this maxi! super super pretty. The only issue is that I got the xs and it fits perfectly everywhere except a little snug in the bust area (I'm 34C). But I think a small would be too big everywhere else, so I'm keeping it! If you open the buttons up top and and wear a little bralette or such under it, I think it'll work just fine! It's a bit sheer, but that's kind of the charm of it too. Really one of my faves now! Sexy, sweet, lovely and light!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by tracey_demmon Wanted to love it - not for the small busted
I really wanted this to work for me, but it just didn't. I am petite, 5'3" and 105. This was very hard to get on and off, the buttons are way too tight and I was afraid of breaking them due to other reviews. It was not fitted enough in the torso and hung sadly at the top. No way I could have unbuttoned the top all sexy like the photos. Basically it just was more sack-like than sexy. Full disclosure, I am a 32A. I am sure this would have much different if I had something more to fill it out. The dress itself was lovely. Sadly I took the tags off when I got it because I was so excited!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by rebelmia Surprisingly Sexy On
I agree with everything HAS2 had to say... Plus, I also tried to unbutton Trying as an open piece (it looks so sweet on you all!)... I think I will have to Buy another one to wear like that. Do not try... Slip OVER YOUR HEAD, even though not EZ...
I purchased this to try under the "Flower Mesh Maxi" in Black. They did not have the Ivory for the longest time, as That was my first choice.
I am 5 2, 105 lbs- TODAY... 32C in bra, less in tape measurement. This Dress IS Tight in the Bust, but looks great if you Open the top couple Buttons... in fact I thought it looked a little Dowdy when recommended "closed" by Mom. Works pretty great under the Mesh Maxi (which I'm gonna try a hidden bustle w/ slight casual Train) This Charcoal Dress looks like Nothing when you pull out of the "bag" but when you put it on, it is a WHOLE DIFFERENT STORY. I believe it has to be your True Size, or it does not have the Lure it is meant to have. You will miss out on feeling QUITE SEXY...
