Â by chrissycnw Adorable but...
the fabric is SO much thinner than I imagined (seriously, I am wearing LIGHT green underwear, and you can see for yourself how much it shows in the photo I included). The dress is made out of a jersey material. I ordered the white, and it is charming and comfortable, but I may need to invest in a slip.
If you have a large chest, beware. I'm only a 32 C (36, 27, 36 and 5'7"), and the sewn-on cups look a little high/small on my chest. The detailing on the front clasps is beautiful and high-quality. And the print is beautiful!
For sizing, it's a bit tricky. On the model in the "white" pictures, it looks loose (which is kind of what I was going for) and not at all like a bodycon dress. In reality, the fabric really clings so it won't hang like it does on the model.
I'm keeping the white because it really is cute and fresh-looking. Would definitely recommend the grey color, because it is so chic and would probably be less see-through :)
Rated 1 out of 5Â by mkoz Very unhappy with this purchase
I love FP and I was really looking forward to receiving this dress, but it is such a disappointment!
First of all, the fabric is not thick at all, it looks cheap and doesn't offer any support.
The holes are see-through. Can only wear nude or same color as the dress underwear.
The color (I ordered grey) is not this nice steel grey color as pictured - mine looks dirty denim blue.
The bust cups are very small - they also don't have any shape - just flat.
I'm usually XS in FP and I wanted this dress to showcase my shape, but this dress is not at all body hugging, it just hangs straight - no countour for my small waist at all as on the model in the picture. The fabric is such that it shows all imperfections - if you have even a tiny layer of fat on your back or hips, it will show it all. On me, I can see bra and bikini lines too well.
But the biggest disappointment are the sleeves - the pictures show nice small sleeves - my dress is sleeveless and what is there - barely covers my shoulders.
Overall not a good purchase - will return.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by briiianaaa like it, but not worth $98
The material is pretty, but it stretches out a lot so I recommend getting a size smaller then what you usually are. If fit kind of slouchy on me (I'm 5'7, 125 lbs). Overall, I returned it because I wasn't in love with it, maybe when it goes on sale I'll purchase it again

bought this dress(coral) for my tiny, curvy , athletic 16 year old daughter. i always appreciate the reviews so i figured i'd write one myself. looks much better in person than on the web. with that being said, if you do not have a perfectly conditioned body i do not rec. this dress. imo it is for the teenage set. no matter the size- fit, toned, athletic girls. the fabric is of a spring weight dress. like most fp dresses this one runs short. wouldn't recc. if you are over 5' 4"
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Karinka Not As It Seems
From the photos, I had imagined the fabric of the dress was more of a stiffer cotton with a bit more shaping in the sewing--but this dress is purely stretchy.
It's much more of a cream color as well, not this pure white as shown on the models.
I think what makes anyone look a bit bigger, or more preciscly, wider, is the fact that the waist cut is situated very high on the dress, which in turn brings more attention to the hip area and below. This becomes an issue when you're not a girl weighing at 98lbs at a height of 5'9! In conclusion, a bit disappointing.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by cafe I thought this was the dress I've been waiting for
When I first saw this dress in the Jan catalogue, I was so happy, because for the longest time I was looking for a sweet and sexy eyelet dress to wear for date nights and nights out.
I am usually an XS-S in FP. Since I had tried the Small on in the store and it was too big, I decided to order the XS. When it came in the mail, the material was so thin and see-through I had to put my own white slip underneath, but I still thought it looked cheap.
On top of that, I'm a 32C cup, and the top did not fall on my chest nicely at all! This dress is for a very very small chested girl.
And the hips. Fine, I'm no supermodel, but in the picture, the white eyelet dress looks sort of loose and structured on the model. But on me it just looked like white cotton wrapped around the largest parts of my hips and butt. Not flattering at all if you have any hips.
So, basically if you have a boys body, this dress is for you. Otherwise, don't bother. I will be exchanging this for another white dress. So sad.
FYI, I think for the website, they had the model put on the Medium or Large, and had it pinned behind her for each of the photos. No way is she wearing an XS or Small.

I am always a size small in FP, I am 5' 6" with an hourglass figure, 32", 27", 37" and this dress fits perfectly. I got it in the grey, and it will be great for any season, layer it for winter or pair it with sandals for the summer.

I bought this dress in an xs as I do for most Free People dresses, and the only real complaint I have about it is that it isn't necessarily flattering on bigger breasted girls. I'm a 32 D and the cups on this dress are TINY. Also I am 5'2 and the dress is a lot longer than I would have liked for my body, which is weird considering the cups are so small. I still love this dress though, I always get tons of compliments when I wear it. Just make sure you have a slip or nude underwear because it is VERY see through :)
