Rated 5 out of 5Â by t0rrid Gorgeous, Size up to get the model look!
I am a true XS (5'3, 98-100 lbs) and bought the ivory in both XS and S. Initially I preferred the XS due to it cinching more solidly at the hips, however. I now wear it mainly as a very cute day dress. While the bodice is the same length as the S, the skirt is shorter and less voluminous. The overall silhouette, while not form-fitting, is shorter and slender, making it a definite casual dress (I think the best picture to describe the fit is the third FPStyle picture of the dress in blue, taken on the pier). The S, on the other hand, can be worn day and night, as the skirt is longer, falling right above my knees, and has volume (exactly like the model pictures) that the XS lacks. Sizing up allows the band to very loosely hug low on my hips and elongates the bodice (this and the slightly poufier skirt gives a rather romantic effect when I walk) - and this was the exact relaxed drop waist look I desired. The overall effect is very similar to the model, however the bodice of the dress above the embroidered bank has a less baggy appearance one me, since she has the dress slightly bunched up above her hips. Love this dress, they look even better in person than in pictures. I've decided to keep both.:)
Rated 4 out of 5Â by CocoM Very cute!
Bought this dress in a small (my usual size) but definitely should have gotten an XS. the dress is so so cute and i wear it exactly as the model does. With a sweater and a pair of boots its perfect for the fall and with a pair of sandals its great for the summer! I would however warn that the top is somewhat see through and a good tan bra is strongly advised!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by FPKaraK Niagara = beautiful underrated piece!
I am so in love with this piece! I fell in love as soon as the Ivory popped up online. I was so happy I waited to order as the beautiful "Niagara" Color is to die for! am a blue eyed blonde so this suits my coloring superb. The color and stitching is exactly as pictured in the studio photos. The Ivory in person is on the sheer side. A nude bra would work best with this piece or you can add a pop of color with a bandeau or halter bra! I purchased my usual size XS. The dress is cut slightly on the larger side. However due to the nature of the styling of the dress it is not that big of a deal. I am 5'6", 107lbs 32B - 25 - 33. I have a long torso so I did not have an issue with the waist hitting me awkwardly. I love how comfortable this piece is while still looking pretty and feminine. I am very happy I snatched this one up! I def feel this beauty is underrated! It also matches the new colorway of the "Lima" cardigan perfectly. I purchased them to wear together and get so many compliments!

This is the perfect go to dress, every week, whether you're feeling thin or not to wear! It's SO comfortable, but does run a bit big. I'm usually a small at FP, and had to size down to an XS for this one (for reference I'm 5'4", 32C & 120 lbs). At the moment, I love pairing it with leggings, the Vintage Tall Sweater Socks, boots and the Long Pattern Hooded Cardi. I've gotten so many compliments! Beautiful detailing and love the asymmetrical hem!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by kalliepalm Runs large!
Unfortunately, I had to send this back because it was huge on me. The style is adorable, but I'm an XS (34 B, 5'2", 115 lbs) and this was so big that instead of the cinching being around my waist, it was around my hips which obviously was really unflattering. Pretty bummed :(
Rated 5 out of 5Â by gabfab adorable dress.
i absolutely love this dress - it's very classic, young, & feminine. i'm 5'4" 130 lb, 34 D & my usual medium fit just right. i would imagine that the shape of this dress would be flattering on just about anyone. & the detailing on the waist is fun and colorful. i would definitely recommend this! the only issue would be if you're tall because this dress is rather short. more colors please, freepeople!

Bought this dress in blue - actually preferred the cream but could not find the XS. I am getting quite used to selecting sizes one or two down from other clothing brands with Free People and this dress was no exception. Not a big deal at all - just have found this consistent across all my purchases anyway. Very easy summer dress....great with gold toned sandals and jewellery as the embroidery has gold running through it. No need to iron so great for travelling too.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by bohoangel5 Makes a great Summer dress!
I purchased this dress in the blue version in size large as my regular FP size medium was not available. The large ended up working out for me since 1. it gave me added length (I am 5'6" and hit right above my knees) and 2. the waist ended up lying in a better more flattering lower place. The skirt part is lined so no need for a slip with this one. The only thing is because I am a busty 36D the V neck goes down way too low for my comfort level so I will probably wear a cami or something under it. Other than that I think it will make an excellent Summer dress as the material is that light gauze that is great when it gets really hot. I recommend this one!
