Rated 4 out of 5Â by irina_xs Beautiful but big!
I've been eyeing this slip since it went on sale, and finally decided to buy it. My local FP store had it in my size (XS) at an even better price, so I was sure I'd take it home today. But when I tried it on, I just couldn't get over how wide it was on me, although I wanted to like it so much. I'm 5'6'', 108lbs (34A), and size XS was not flattering at all - too wide in waist, too much material all around, and revealing too much of the undergarment in the chest area. It also was a little too long to my taste.
Other than my personal mismatch with this item, there is nothing to complain of - it is beautiful, well-made, airy and comfortable. I just wish it was better fitting (more TTS).
However, I am sure it would look great on tall girls with a bit of curves.

This thing is huge so ladies size down,it's quite wide but like one previous reviewer "it looks great with a belt. love the embroidery at the hem , the length is great the colour is as described so overall I am pleased you can also wear this for winter over a long sleeve A- line style dress underneath with boots

I had been looking at this online for a while, and when I popped into my local store, I was lucky enough to find it on sale! I stuck with my usual size medium (for ref. 140, 5ft 7, 34D) in the cream color, and it looks great! Originally I was a bit apprehensive about buying it online as I have a larger bust, and crop tops tend to have a maternity effect on me. The drape on this is just right, so it doesn't look like a maternity dress, just dainty and flowy. The embroidery is also really pretty! I purchased a cream colored body con slip to wear under it, and it looks cute belted or with a denim jacket over it. I'm thinking about going back for the blue!

I just purchased this slip in the tea color and am obsessed! It's a great midi length so it doesn't get caught on the ground. The lace and detailing is so beautiful! It looks perfect paired with the seamless mini in black underneath. I'm 5'8, 125, 34c and fit in the medium with a loose fit, which is what I wanted. I can't wait to wear this all summer!

i love the vintage feel of this dress. i got this in the tea colorway, and it's definitely ivory as pictured. i sized down and it's still not skin tight and fits perfect. i'm 5'3" so this is a tea length for me and i happen to love this length. i find the the shape very flattering as it isn't too wide and it isn't too form-fitting. the ivory looks greatest with contrasting black underneath as it shows off the dots on the mesh. i'm able to wear a bodycon or loose slip underneath, and i can also wear a separate tank top and skirt. i think this is a great piece at this price point. one of my favs.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by CeeCee PRETTY BUT LARGE
I ordered the Ivory color in an X-Small but it is still one size too large for me. However, I can't let this go because it is just too PRETTY. I decided that I'm either going to find a way to make this work for me by trying on different slips, belted, or have it tailored to fit me. The flounced bodice is so sweet, the dotted Swiss fabric is awesome and the black trim at the hem is such a beautiful touch. Because of the flounce at the bodice, I think this will make a better dress than under a dress as a slip. The flounce might add too much bulk. I contemplated on returning this but I will keep it. This is a good price for a unique piece.

Â by sincerelycatt Just bought this today in store...
I tried this on in XS & S in the tea color. It's definitely an off white--I think it gives a vintage feel. I tried it on with one of FP's fitted/skin-tight slips--I love the look...it's sweet & sexy at the same time. I paired it with a white slip...you can just see your curves as the light shines through the mesh material.
When it comes to sizing with FP dresses, I never know what size I am. I feel like they like to put their models in a size larger to give that boho look. I'm 5'6", 109lbs, 32B...XS was more fitted, the S was looser, longer, more material all around, but looked like how it looks on the model: the edge of the top ruffle hits just around your true waist. The XS looked cute too, but I think the S flattered my small boobs better :P
And I agree with another reviewer, the dress length is a little awkward, but I love the dress over all. I might just go back for the indigo one :)
BTW, it also depends on how you want to style it; I'd go smaller if you want to style with pants, otherwise, with a larger size, it'll be long and too much material; it might make you look frumpy. It might be hard to see the difference in the pics, but when I tried them on, I definitely felt and saw the difference.

First of all, there IS NO ERROR! The dress IS the slip. There is no other garment that comes with it to act as another slip. To the person who reviewed before me, I'm sorry to tell you that ordering a second one will not come with a slip. That being said, I am 5'6" 155lbs and have a large bust and wide hips. I DEFINITELY went on a limb ordering this because I thought it would look like a bad mumu. But it doesn't!! It drapes wonderfully and doesn't flare out from your wide parts. The bottom has a slight high-lo effect, and the top ruffle doesn't flare out on large busts. SO pleasantly surprised with the dress. It's just as beautiful in pics. The indigo is prettier in person and the tea is more off white than pictured. I know because I have both now!! SO HAPPY!!
