Rated 3 out of 5Â by MarilynMeow Not for a larger chest
I waited for this to come back in stock and was really excited to get it in the mail today. It completely flattens my chest (32 E). Normally FP slips are so roomy that this isnt a problem but this one is unforgiving of a larger bust. So sad!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by giulia_tata Gosh, I am so in love with this dress.
Honestly, I think I'm obsessed. I was so excited, but a little apprehensive, to receive this in the mail. I wasn't sure if the dress would fit properly! There were so many other reviews saying that the dress was way too big, so I went ahead and ordered a size smaller than I usually wear ( I usually wear a large but ordered a medium). I'm about 145 lbs, not very well endowed in the chest area, but fairly well proportioned otherwise. It's a good thing I ordered a size down or else it probably would have been way too big. The chest area fits snugly, but sits well on me, and the amount of drapery on the dress is absolutely divine. I think this dress could make any body shape look good. The fabric is very thin, however you can tell that it is well made. It is just so feminine and pretty.. ahh I love it :)
Rated 4 out of 5Â by lapozolera Great layering piece
I am 5'5", a size 36B to C-ish bra and wear a U.S. 12 or large. I wear a medium to large in Free People, depending on the cut of the garment. I bought this slip in a medium. I usually order the medium with Free People because their pieces tend to run large and I am a little too curvy for the super oversized stuff to look very flattering on me. I ordered the medium and it fit like a glove. I'd say that anyone that is my size, but that has a bigger cup size than I do, (like a large C and above), might want to stick with the large as the chest is the tightest area on this garment. The medium fits my 36B to C-ish chest perfectly. The skirt of the slip is totally open and flowy so you don't have to worry about it accentuating your gut (if you have one like I do...actually, let's not call it a gut, let's call it a snuggly womb or something more inviting). Anyhow, I can definitely see how people would be disappointed with the sheer lace panel in the front if they bought this with the intention of wearing it alone. I bought this with the intention of wearing it as a layering piece though, so I don't mind the sheer panel. This can easily be pulled off over a pair of cute bloomers or one of the Free People Intimates layering skirts to provide that extra length and coverage. Or, it can be layered over a longer slip or cut off shorts. I noticed that several people also complained that the straps looked "juvenile". I actually really like the straps. As someone who is old enough to truly remember the 90s (I'm 32), I really appreciate how the bodice and the little floral straps are reminiscent of those 90s slip dresses that I always wore. Since I bought this to wear under shorter tunics and dresses, I don't think anyone will get to see the cute straps and bodice anyway (unfortunately). AT 5'5", the shortest part of the medium comes to about 2 or 3 inches below my butt/crotch (so, too short to wear all alone but, like I said, that's not why I buy slips). The longer parts (on the sides) are about knee length. So, long story short, size down one size unless you are more well endowed in the chest area, in which case, stick to your normal size and don't buy this with the intention of wearing it all alone. Expect to have to wear it layered over/under something longer.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by swanghost pretty enough to keep even once it breaks
this is an obviously lovely slipdress. i got the wisteria color which is beautiful and unique. not even a week after receiving it in the mail, and only twice after wearing it, the strap broke even though there was no pressure on the strap. of course, i have to say that i 100% expected something like this to happen as this is just the way free people makes their clothing. and as always, i am *really* annoyed that even though i paid so much for a slip, it broke after such a short amount of time. but, like all my other free people dresses, i will fix it myself and go on wearing it because i love it so much.

Given that I am short, at around 5'2", with a short torso, I decided to give this slip a chance and ordered it in an XS to wear as a dress. Yes, I was wary of the length mentioned in other reviews, but I figured on my small frame it wouldn't be an issue.
For me, the length would have been perfect and I would have loved to have worn this as a light summer dress...if it weren't for the see through panel right in the middle of the crotch!! In the online photos, you can see the lace part, but it is not apparent that it is completely sheer.
I mean, what is that? Who in the world thought it was a good idea, other than someone who likes flashing their unmentionables around?
Other than that, this slip is really beautiful. It has gorgeous, fluttery lace detailing, and is very flattering on. In person, the sand color is a really nice creamy rose. Unfortunately for me, this isn't enough to save it, so I will be returning.
If this doesn't bother you, or you envision wearing this as with leggings or shorts, then feel free!

I loved the look of this dress online, but was disappointed when it arrived. I am 5"5, 110 lbs and ordered an xs in the sand color. The dress is huge around the bust and waist, and hangs on me like a bag. It is also short to the point that I would worry about showing my undies. I really wish it would have fit true to size and been longer because it is a beautiful dress otherwise.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Justpeachy242 Great for a romantic night out
They say this dress is lingerie, but I disagree. I think it's a great little date night dress. I'm 5 3 curvy/athletic & it fits me exactly like the picture. I highly recommend getting the bra in the picture or the something to go under this dress because it is LOW CUT.

I bought this dress in the raspberry color in an xs. I am 5'2" - 32 a/b chest. The material is really beautiful and the dress is certainly unique!! BUT I am short and the layering hits me right in the hips, making me look wider in the hips than I already am. (the front of the dress is short and has lace, so it is see through - you would have to wear some sort of cute undies or leggings underneath - FP makes plenty of those so not to worry). It is in my closet for now but not so sure it will stay there :-/
