Rated 3 out of 5Â by aesthete Beautiful Dress but so LARGE
This dress is even more gorgeous to look at in person than it is online. I love the colour, the fabric and the general aesthetic. BUT like with most Free People dresses of late, this dress just hangs off me like I'm a stick figure. Which I must emphasize, I am not. I do not understand how the dress on the models appears to be showing something of a waist when, in fact, the model is much skinnier than I am. I really do think that Free People ought to offer petite sizes like many other popular brands do nowadays. Some of us girls are tiny but that does not mean that we cannot find clothes elsewhere. Free People just makes the most beautiful casualwear that is impossible to wear because the clothes just fall off small girls. For the record, I am 5ft tall and I ordered the XS.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by j3ssica Pretty...but unflattering
I really wanted this dress to work!
I'm 5'7", healthy/thin frame, purchased a S and could've gotten away with an XS. The extra material at the bottom of the dress doesn't help to flatter the overall shapelessness of the look either. (I tried it with a belt, still wasn't sold and had to return it.)

I bought this dress after I saw a picture of Taylor Swift wearing it and I have to say, it looks even better in real life!! Absolutely exquisite dress - very strongly recommended.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by LFP Pretty layers
I ordered this dress in tea and size xs. There is a slip that comes with this dress, and the longer layer of the slip's unfinished hem peeps out below the lace. It's a nice contrast to the pretty lace. On me, the dress almost hangs the same way as in the pics but just a tad wider. The length hits me a couple of inches above the knee. I'm 5'5 and 108 lbs for ref. I really love the layering effect - it's almost like getting 2 dresses for the price of one! I also love the 3/4 fitted sleeves that you could push up for a more casual feel - the lace is stretchy. Very comfortable and very versatile in style. I loved it so much I ordered the copper one too! I wish fp would have this in black... or maybe they did and I missed out?! (With any of fp's unfinished hems, I use 'fray check' (it's sort of a fabric glue) to prevent further fraying on the more delicate pieces. You could buy this or equivalent in fabric stores. I will definitely get a lot of wear out of this.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Kayley Gorgeous, but fraying
I absolutely adore this dress. Wonderful, unique shape, gorgeous colour (I have the copper) & really comfortable. It is meant to be a bit lose with a lovely slight drop waist, which makes it really interesting. The only thing keeping it from 5* is the fact that the slip underneath is incredibly frayed. I think it is meant to be this way & you can even see it if you look at the close photos, but I wish it were more sturdy on the ends. I feel like I spent so much time while wearing this dress worried that it will unravel around me! Still adore it & wear it loads, though.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by FPRich Lovely dress!!
Love the lace and slip beneath. The tea color is more darker than shown in the picture which looks nice. The ruffled hem adds layers and texture to the dress. Looks pretty. Can be dressed up or down. Great buy!

This dress is more like an "old lace" color, but the color is versatile - it goes with all sorts of natural colors. I am ~100lbs 5'5" and an XS hangs to just above my knee. fits perfectly in arms & shoulders. It's a bit big in torso for me, needs a belt or to be used as a layering piece. I have dressed this down with jeans and it's adorable, adds a nice feminine edge. i also love that this comes with a separate slip; the slip is lovely in its own right, and will be getting a lot of use with other outfits!

I got this in the tea color and it is much darker than in the photo on here (a dark creme).. I would have loved to see the red in person, but didn't want to order just to see, and they didn't have it in my local store. I ordered the small and had to exchange it for XS b/c it was too roomy, looked a bit maternity, but even still, I loved the look. The underneath slip is what makes it. I like it with jeans and boots, very pretty!
