Rated 4 out of 5Â by IMNRTST Runs VERY Small!!
(5'3",109lbs, 32b-24-37) - Ordered XS Charcoal - In the world of FP, ordering an XS by default for a petite sized lady is standard. This is not the case with this dress! My ribcage measures 30" below the breast... when I exhale. The fitted waist across the XS dress measures 12". Double that for the circumference. It has no give. The tight waist of the dress falls about midway between your natural waist and just under your breast. Just another example as to why I have wanted FP to disclose the measurements for each size, per article of clothing. Other than that annoyance: It's lovely! Sexy! Flow-y! The bottom hem is not a straight cut, but rather the long vertical sections of fabric are curved at the bottom. Great as a sexy nighty or evening dress...or layering slip.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by JOYSLASTDIVISION Really beautiful material
I bought this dress in my usual FP M. I have a wider rib cage so I couldn't button the back. Super sad because everywhere else fit like a glove. So I had to return it. This dress is beautiful, the material looks expensive and feels so light and soft. The entire things is sheer, even the top so you would probably have to put nude inserts in the top and where a skirt or shorts underneath if wearing it as a dress. I planned to wear it in the keys over my bathing suit. I recommend for anyone whose rib cage is 34 or below (I'm a 36).
Rated 5 out of 5Â by jenniferlee Yay for running small!
I ordered 6 FP dresses for a wedding, hoping one would fit. All the others I ordered in XS or 0 and they were all too big. This one I ordered in S based on previous reviews and it fit! It's lovely and flows nicely. I'm 5'1", 100lbs, 32D. FP really needs to work on making their sizing more consistent and offering XXS (which is how this slip fits) in most things.
Also, beware the fabric is very delicate, the first one I ordered already had a snag so I had to order a second.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by MGiovanna Nice but unusually narrow bodice
I ordered the charcoal/carbon colour which is true to the pictures. The slip dress is completely sheer so will need a slip underneath. It is very pretty and hangs beautifully - the skirt part is very flattering - but as previous reviewers have commented, the top runs very small, in my case for a L. I rarely have trouble with FP L and quite often wear M, at UK 14-16, US 10-12, 36/38C/D, but, like the lady before me, could not do up all the buttons at the top in this L. A pity because it's a flattering, wearable style otherwise. I do agree with the reviewer who asked for measurements for all sizes of each garment on the website. Customer services are always helpful if asked for more details, but it understandably takes a couple of days to get answers, by which time styles have often sold out.
