Rated 2 out of 5Â by ElephantGirl So awkward
I thought this dress was going to be a keeper for sure... until I tried it on. While it's great in concept, the fit is a nightmare! First off, as others have stated, the shoulder straps just DO NOT stay up! They are too wide and slipped off within minutes of walking around in the dress. Another major issue is that the gather waist portion kept riding up to an unflattering point. It took a lot of adjustment in the mirror to get the dress to look like it does on the model, and once I started moving around, everything got disheveled again. Although the fabric is gorgeous, I'm afraid this piece just doesn't work. I can't really imagine it fitting right on any body type, so I highly recommend trying it on in person before purchasing.

This dress is gorgeous. I first fell in love with it when I saw a sneak peek of an upcoming episode of The CW's new show 'Reign' and noticed that it was worn as a top in black by one of the characters. I loved the dress so much that I decided to order it. I bought it in black since I enjoy having darker colored clothing in my wardrobe. The details on this dress are amazing and I love that it can be dressed up or down. I decided to take the previous reviews into consideration and size down and even called a Free People store near me for sizing advice. The sales associate agreed that I needed to size down. I usually wear either a small or a medium in Free People depending on the article of clothing and how it fits, so I went with the small and it fits perfectly. The only complaint that I have is that the straps are flimsy and don't lie on the shoulder, rather fall constantly. It is a bit disappointing but I just let the straps fall and tuck them under the sleeves of the dress so I can wear the dress without the straps. Iâm really glad I made this purchase and can't wait to wear the dress out.

I was a bit nervous about ordering this dress, as at the time there were no reviews - but I was not disappointed! I will agree with the other reviewers, the straps are completely useless. They only adjust to about half-way up the strap, and even then, they are just too large. I am 5'9" with a long torso, and even for me they just didn't work. I also take a bit of the issue with the sleeves. They're just a touch short on me due to my height. I also know this is really frivolous, but I have to unbutton the sleeves to get my hands through because the holes are too small, and it's a bit tedious. Other than that, the dress is perfect! It fits like a dream on the rest of me. My measurements are 34-28-38, and the size M is very flattering. The embroidery is very high quality and rich, and the fabric is ridiculously soft and comfortable. I also have a problem with dresses with defined waist not fitting me the way they should, and it's not a problem with this dress at all - no riding, no weird waist lines, just perfect! Adorable with a cute cardigan and some knee-high boots, a definite must-buy!

I bought this dress on sale from the Free People store for only $30! I couldn't believe what a steal it was. The only reason I gave it four stars was because the adjustable straps seem kind of flimsy and aren't that easy to adjust. I bought the pink color but will hopefully buy the blue when it goes on sale again.

once you get over the fact the straps are useless its cute, does ride up a little when you're moving around a lot but nothing that would cause me not to wear it. Not amazing, but cute.

I bought this dress in the pale blue to wear to a casual beach wedding as a guest. Very cute overall. The color was a bit lighter than the photos when arrived. Fit was just a bit loose. Cute little dress.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by gsjk10 Fits just like on the model - no problems.
I hesitated to buy this dress for my daughter based on the reviews, but decided to try it. She is 5'10" and wears a small. The dress fit her just like it did on the model as soon as she put it on. She plans to cut off the straps, so they're not an issue. She has no problem with the middle section elastic sliding up or down. The blue is beautiful - just as pictured.

This dress looks way too roomy.
