This dress is much prettier than on the photo. I went to the store today looking for my wedding (informal) dress and fell in love with this one. I'm 5'9 137 Lb and Small fits me perfectly,,,,, Not sure if Im going to wear it for my wedding because its shorter than I would like to see my wedding dress,,,, but i love it!!!

I was pretty underwhelmed by this dress. Thinking it would be an easy yes, I threw the Ivory colour in with an order a while back, but I was disappointed with what arrived. First of all, it's quite see-through, particularly in the bust area, meaning you're rather bullied into wearing a bra with it, which isn't really necessary for some cup sizes otherwise. Also, I really disliked the straps. They definitely brought the quality of the dress down and made it look a fair bit cheaper. (I know $100 is inexpensive for FP, but really, it's not that inexpensive, is it?) And lastly, the empire arced up in a weird way in the front (see picture). It could have been because the fabric was rather thin that it pulled so much on my ribcage, but not enough to require a size up; just enough to look slightly awkward. Oh well. (For the record, I am about 125 lbs, 32D and bought my usual XS.)
Rated 2 out of 5Â by tailz87 Quality is lacking for the price
I received this as a birthday present 2 months ago, the XS fits just a tad bigger than I would like (5'3, 110lbs, 30D, 26in waist), but the real issue is the quality. It is very thin and sheer. Make sure you wear flesh-toned undies! The stretchy lace overlay is pilling and falling apart and most of the gold foil has come off in the wash. The care instructions are machine wash cold; I took an extra step by washing it inside out in a laundry bag in an effort to preserve the gold, but no dice. I leave a trail of gold flakes wherever I sit. Now one of the straps has come undone at the seam and I don't think I can wear it anymore. For almost a $100 I expect this dress to last more than 2 months. Such a bummer because it is a very cute and versatile dress and can be worn many ways across many seasons. Very disappointing FP. I am one unhappy customer.

It's a nice dress. I wouldn't mind getting it someday.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by kaychan Lovely dress but..
When I first saw this dress, I fell in LOVE with it. I bought it right away but I didn't try it on. I wish I would have tried it on first.. Everything fit great except in the chest. I'm a 36D and I bought a large. It was extremely unflattering on my chest. Definitely not for busty girls. Needless to say, it was returned ):

Like all of FP fit and flare styles, this one is tight and form fitting. I usually wear an xs in FP and that's what I got. No fit problems (I'm 5' 8'', 125lbs with a small chest). I originally had the taupe color, but it really looks different from the picture, darker I would say (I just felt like it wasn't doing much for my skin color). I returned it, and decided to hold onto my $$$. My bf, however, bought me the ivory one. I prefer the color, especially the foil. It's kind of an ambiguous metal color so you can pair it with silver or gold. Love this dress, very flattering, looks great with boots. The hem is unfinished, but that unfinished look is what makes FP stuff special, IMO. Love the ribbon straps!

Unfortunately, for me, this dress ultimately looked pretty bad on. I was excited to order the dress, and I knew when I ordered it that it probably wouldn't look as good in person as it does online, so I wasn't too surprised by the difference in the look of the quality (as expected, I thought it looked better online). While still a nice dress, I just thought the foiling effect looked cheaply done (on my dress - something I was willing to work with), the dress isn't hemmed, and the straps on my dress almost looked like bra straps (rather than more ribbon-y as they look online).
I'm 135lbs, 5'5", and ordered the medium, which fit comfortably and reached around my mid thigh in the middle of the dress.
What I didn't expect was the strange flaring out at the sides. It's almost as if the hem is longer on both sides of the dress. As in, noticeably, inches longer (very different than it appears online). Perhaps it was simply a bad batch, but it does appear upon closer inspection that the dress does get a bit longer on the sides in pics online, but not inches longer. For someone who wants to accentuate their hips, this probably won't be a problem, but for a pear shaped gal, this didn't help and made the fit look terrible on me. Regardless of how much I wanted to love this dress (I had been planning on wearing it to my brother's wedding after wanting to buy it for awhile), there was no way that fit was going to work for me.
Non pears, I say go for it. It's pretty in its simplicity (albeit not spectacular quality for ~$100 in my opinion, it's still an interesting and different idea for a dress). The unexpected skirt shape, which looked weird on my body shape and didn't work for me, seems to look stunning on others.

This dress was absolutely great. It fit perfectly, and was exactly as described. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and it lived up to my expectations.
