Â by ScienceGirl Didn't work for me. :-(
Unlike some other reviewers, I LOVE the colors in the studio shots. They make the dress appear very golden...gold, honey and caramel come to mind as a description of the browns in the studios. Unfortunately, in real life, the colors are very muddy and much more cool toned. The antique ivory in the studio pictures is the true color of the lightest panels...they are not white as in the catalog. The other colors are actually closer to the catalog as they are more along the lines of taupe, coffee, etc. There is no golden tone in the browns at all. :-( I am 5'5' and measure 38-26-36. I wear a 36C bra, so based on katie h's review, I purchased a 12. I normally wear a M or 8 in FP dresses, but the bust area is quite small on this dress. The 12 fit with a little room to spare, however a 10 would have been fine. Thus I recommend sizing up one size. The full bust measurement on the 12 is 39". Other than the fact that I cannot wear cool muddy colors, the dress is beautifully made and the detailing is gorgeous. Tip: Try this dress on backwards..it actually looks nice! <3

Been waiting for this dress to be avail in a store. I lucked out and was able to try it on. I usually wear a size 0 or 2, but had to buy the dress in a size 6. I tried a size 4, but the bust area was a little too tight. I am a bust size 34b. It is gorgeous on. Yes, the color is a little more tan than the white and gold that you see on the first model. Wearing it to a wedding this weekend.

This dress is beyond amazing! I saw it in the July catalog and knew I had to have it right away...despite the back-order. I ordered a size 12 and it fit really nice, but was smaller than I expected. I am only a 36 B and the chest was snug. This dress is not too sheer, but nude undergarments are a must. The color is much closer to the studio pictures than the catalog shot. The only reason I removed a star was because the fabric is extremely delicate and snags easily.

Eeeeehhhhhh.... I saw this in the store, and the colors are sadly more like the studio shots. I'm fairly pale and the colors washed me out, in addition to not being nearly as bold and contrasting as they are in the studio shot. (Pity) The sizing for me was actually on the large side. I'm a solid 6, 34B, and the store had a 2 and a 6... I definitely would need the 4. Unless the dress was incorrectly labeled a 6 when it was an 8, I'd recommend sizing down if the muted colors of the studio shots don't turn you off.

I was very worried about the sheerness of this dress when I ordered it, but wearing nude under garments makes it so you can't even tell. I ordered size 4 and am 5ft 5in, 125 lbs, and a 34B. It fit perfectly! I also ordered the triple wrap belt like on the model. SO COOL! The beaded detailing is gorgeous and the fabric is so light and airy. My only complaint is that the top button is a little difficult to undo and refasten. It took me like 5 minutes to get it done. If you are on the fence, go for it. Especially at the sale price. I can't wait to wear this to a wedding I have in Franklin, TN!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by LFP Beautiful..runs a bit small
I ordered sz 0. In retrospect should have ordered a 2. I can close the button in front but it is a little tight around the neck. Also the chest area runs a bit small. I'm 5'5 and small chested and usually wear a sz 0 or 2 if the make is small, like in this case. Since there are no more sizes available I will keep this dress. It's just so beautiful. The colour is similar to the pics that the brunette model is wearing or in the image that a previous reviewer has shown. The dress is difficult to pull on since the top is tight, but with some patience it is do-able. I'm planning to wear it with the button undone. It still looks great that way. The dress is so feminine, flowing and the length hits me as seen on the model. I can't wait to wear this once the weather gets warmer. Even with these small issues, the fit is ok. I just absolutely adore this piece with the beading, the color, the light weight fabric, and overall good quality. I'm also glad of the even hemline (I'm getting tired of uneven ones). I hope fp will find more of these beauties for us..

I am 5ft 10in, 140lbs, and a 32D. The size 6 fits perfectly! Nude undergarments make the semi-sheerness a non issue. I can't wait to wear it to summer concerts! I will rock it with boots/sweaters until it gets warmer! :)
