Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lilyinthesea So excited about this dress
I am 5 feet tall 115 lbs (and 5 months pregnant. Not only is this dress gorgeous now, but there is enough fabric to get me through to my due date (in July). I love the fact that it is also amazing on people who are not pregnant. I saw a couple of other ladies try it on too, it it looked gorgeous. The extra fabric from the draping isn't evident (but extremely lucky for those of us who wish to still dress cute and be pregnant) :) fabric is extremely light, very comfortable. I got an extra small.

Beautiful super long maxi dress that drapes unbelievably well! I purchased this in black and it looks exactly like the online photos. I'm a short petite at 5'2" and the hemline is a bit long, but nothing that a pair of heels won't fix. The crochet is very nicely done and the metal sequin trim is perfect. There is no stretch to the fabric. Because of the open crochetwork, undergarments are a must unless you are daring. Here are the measurements for an XSmall:
length from back of neck: 57"
bust all around: 35"
armhole drop: 8.5"
Rated 3 out of 5Â by lovelycarrieann I really wanted to love this dress
I ordered this in the black in a large (5'9, 140 lbs, hourglass), but it just had too many problems for the price. First I felt the crochet stiching was a bit stiff and looked a little cheap, and it also hit in weird places in the front. Also as other reviewers had mentioned, the top of the dress fit perfectly, but below the bust was a huge billowing disaster. I do a lot of sewing and often tailor my clothes to fit, but there was just too much going wrong to try to sort out for the price. I can't say if this was a problem with other colors as the dress seems to be popular enough. I think this dress would maybe work best for flatter chested girls who could afford to size down and still have the top portion fit. As usual though FP was great and prompt with my return so no complaints!!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Diidii Warning! Dress does SHRINK! (yay!)
I've read all the reviews about how long the dress is and have been meaning to submit my own review. When I first tried the dress I also thought it was way too long on my 5'4" body and considered altering the length, but I am SO GLAD I washed first. It shrank *several* inches (maybe even half a foot?) after washing on cold and hanging to dry.
I got all three colors -white, black, and army. I returned army because of a major smell to the fabric, specifically at the crochet detailing. Not sure what that was about because the other two dresses didn't have that issue at all.
I ended up keeping only the black, and I wear it with the seamless honey tupelo top underneath. This is a really gorgeous dress, I hope they come out with similar silhouettes in the near future.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by SASHABLUE DRAPES GORGEOUSLY!
I LOVED WEARING THIS DRESS !!! IT FIT BEAUTIFULLY-- COULD PERHAPS SIZE DOWN, NOT SURE. . I FELT LIKE AN ANGEL IN THIS DRESS. AND THAT WAS,, IN FACT, THE COMPLIMENTS I RECEIVED WHEN WEARING IT. IT IS LONG-- TO THE FLOOR. IT FLOWS AND DRAPES WITH BEAUTY. I THOUGHT THE PRICE WAS EXCELLENT FOR THE GORGEOUS FEEL AND LOOK OF THIS STUNNER OF A DRESS.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by fpRebeccateresa Great, easy throw on dress
This dress is the perfect maxi! The detailing adds a lot of interest to a simple black dress. I am 5'5, 130lbs and I got the XS and it fits great. The length is great, a little longer than pictured on the model for me.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by ejane Not Flattering
Bought a Large in the taupe online and was really excited for it to come. When I tried it on it was pretty loose and maybe 3 inches too long for me (I'm about 5'6"). One of the other reviews said the lace seemed cheaply made but it was very soft and the small sequins were a nice touch. Unfortunately, this dress just billows out under the boobs so the lower body just balloons out. I would probably be mistaken for pregnant in this dress. Very unflattering. 3 stars because it is very nice quality.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by lubella A dress to live in
This dress is hands down the best maxi dress I own. I purchased in the taupe and the green color and both are divine. The dress runs big. I normally wear a large in all free people clothes. I bought one dress in large and the other in medium and I like how the medium fits best. The skirt is totally free sized (I'm a 16 on bottom and there is room to spare!)...and the top is a perfect fit. Wish I had it in every color!!!
