Rated 4 out of 5Â by mkiss Pretty Dress, Not Quite Perfect
So I normally wear a large in most FP clothes, but will occasionally fit into a medium if the top or dress runs large. Since plenty of people said this dress ran big, I took a chance and ordered the medium since size was in stock, and I don't know if the large will return (considering this isn't a new item). It fit nicely overall, but there are a few details that make me wish the large was in stock. First, I have a large bust (36DD) so the straps along the sides did gap quite a bit (I was able to tighten the sides, but not enough to get the top comfortably closed, but I don't think that's the point of this dress anyway). This isn't that big of a problem for me, since I will most likely wear it with a shirt on top, and usually wear a long cardigan over sleeveless dresses. Plus, I think wearing a pretty bra with lace panels on the sides would be sexy through the openings. I was also able to tie the straps behind my back, which made this more figure flattering for my curves. The second, and primary, issue I have is with how tight the arm hole is. I was under the impression that the ties along the side and the shoulder strap were one length of fabric and that I could sacrifice the sides a bit in order to not have the straps be quite so tight beneath my arms. I was able to arrange them in such a way that it's ok, but it's not the most comfortable feature of the dress. Other than that, it's a real beauty, and I think the colors of the navy are bold enough that this dress can transition nicely into fall with heavier layers and boots. I'm still contemplating whether or not to keep it, but I've lost about 5 lbs in the past 6 weeks, so I imagine I'd still get a lot of wear (with more comfort) after losing a bit more.

I have a broad back, but a smaller bust(36B) and this dress did not work for me. The strapps were SO tight against my shoulders! I was swimming in the rest of the dress, but the straps looked like I was trying on an XXS. I am sad about this dress, I thought it would be a great summer dress, but I will keep looking. the quality was good, and I can see it looking fantastic on someone a little more slender.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Mintpeach I really love this dress
I backordered this dress in ivory Medium. It got here faster than I expected so I was really excited when I received it today. I open the package and tried it right away .Length is perfect for my 5'2 height and color is beautiful but when I looked at it
The string was hanging out from the strap so I take a look at it and strap was falling out. :( so disappointed. It's sold out online so I don't know if I want to return this because I Love it so much. With this price it should be perfect :..(
Rated 1 out of 5Â by EclecticBird21 I want to love this dress
At first I loved this dress, then I wore it. The straps are not sewn right they are placed so far from the shoulder and it caused a rubbing irritation on my back, I repositioned the straps later on. Then I also had an allergic reaction from the dye used. I broke out in massive welts in certain areas. I initially bought this dress to wear at my nephew's graduation so I found out if I washed it several times the dye will not cause such harm. In which it did, But, washing this item a few time also caused some holes throughout the dress.This fabric is very delicate and rips very easily. For the price of this dress I'm very disappointed. I am a very big fan of free people for over 15 years and I have found that the clothing isn't as all its worth at times... Sorry!
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.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by jinger0930 Love but too fragile!
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
