Rated 4 out of 5Â by swanghost beautiful but big
a beautiful dress. the eyelet, the lace, the straps. it's truly lovely. a perfect long white maxi. however, it does run extremely large. the chest area is definitely a strange fit. it is large yet doesn't cover everything, all at once, if that makes any sense. the dress itself is huge. do size down. one thing i like about the dress is that while it is perfect for summer by itself, it is especially wonderful for fall and winter with layering other pieces. i even went hiking with this dress in iceland!
unlike other free people things, this dress seems to be made very well. the fabric is heavy and seems to be stitched well enough, except for one thing: one of the straps broke in the front before i even wore it :/ and while normally i would just fix it with my sewing machine, i bought it specifically for my vacation to iceland, the day before nonetheless, and of course couldn't fix it in time. i was still able to wear it, but it was definitely a nuisance.
all in all, a beautiful dress, but a bit heavy, so definitely be careful when it comes to the straps, because even if you dont put any pressure on them they will probably break.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by doyouknoweva Amazing dress for the right body type
I am 6'1. The medium was very small in the breast. The large was HUGE on me. The dress is amazing for the right body type.. You definitely need to be small breasted for this dress...

i am not one to write a review, but this item broke my heart.
i was hoping to wear this beautiful dress to renew out vows on the beach of tulum, mexico. it looked PERFECT. it was the first item i excitedly dove into the box to unveil. it is HUGE! proportions are way off. i am 5'6", 110 lbs and am consistently a FP XS i love the back, and thought the fabric was of good quality.....just way too much of it. considered taking it to a tailor but it would pretty much have to be remade.
really disappointed. ;(
i guess the silver lining is i am keeping the cute belt shown with it and several other items.
i'll try to submit a photo.......
Rated 2 out of 5Â by onawapelham sizing and quality
This dress runs very large. The model in the picture is wearing a "small", and she is a twig. I am not a twig, and a small is way too large. Overall quality of the dress is poor, considering the price. Impressed by the picture, but not by the actual dress. Returned right away.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by DrewToo Runs really big
Size down. I am 5'7", 124# with a petite build. I tried on the XS and it was really big on me. I had on high wedges with this and I was still stepping on the dress trying to walk. Also, the top part is really big. You MUST wear something underneath, have it altered, or be willing to show off your goodies to the world.
Otherwise, it is really a well made, beautiful dress. Sadly, I have to send it back. I am unwilling to pay the amount of money it would take to make this work for me.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jerica715 I'm in love...
I am completely convinced that this is the best FP purchase I've ever made. I love this dress and the only thing keeping me from buying it in the other color is that I'm afraid it will be too similar to my skin tone. The detailing is beautiful and I really like that there are the subtle differences in the first few panels to add interest. It also fits really well. I said it runs a bit loose because I'm typically between a S/M but changed to the small at the last minute - and very glad I did. I have a small chest (B cup) and hourglass shape so I wanted the middle to fit my waist and not be too baggy. The Small is perfect, form fitting but not tight at all, & I still have room in the chest as well. I'm also 5'8" and the length hits maybe an inch lower than shown on the model, barely grazing the floor, which is perfect for me! Beautiful dress. Definitely worth it!!!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by ChrisMarie COLOSSAL disappointment.
The fabric is beautiful. The design is gorgeous. I love the color.
The sizing is atrocious. As soon as I pulled the dress out of its box I said "This MUST be a large"
Nope. It was an XS.
I thought to myself, Maybe it just flares out at the bottom.
Convinced myself to try it on.
um, the bottom half was actually perfect oddly enough-it wasn't too long and looked lovely enough.
It was the top. It was all off. I kept wrapping my head around how I could get it altered at the local shop but it would be impossible.
I normally wear a size 0 in US dresses. I am 5''2 and I have a larger bust at 32DD but even that didn't stop the dress from hanging off. It had a large pouch right under my bust where it stuck out. It exposed my whole chest and HUNG loosely off of me. It was awful. awful. awful. SO UNATTRACTIVE. I even tried belts! then it scrunched up at the sides or the back. It's just all wrong.
Definitely returning it. Such a huge disappointment.
If you are a small person-- don't even bother with this dress. The sizing is off.
