Rated 3 out of 5Â by WoodsyOwl wide but still works
Got this in a small and probably needed an extra small (I never wear extra small in FP). The dress is wide; too wide to wear without a bra, or even a backless/strapless bra because you would have too much of a side view for comfort. Paired with an all black intimates top or bandeau though and it still works. Beading is nice and subtle and so far does not seem to be falling off or damaged easily. Nicely lined.

I bought this dress knowing that it was going to be oversized, so it was pretty much exactly what I expected when I got it in the mail. I ordered the XS in the Rust (Iâm 5â5â, 115lbs) and for the most part it fits like it does on the model (unfortunately Iâm not 5â10â. Boo) As far as length goes, it falls about mid-thigh. The color is GORGEOUS and appears the same as it does in the pictures. The embroidery and beading is beautiful and understated, but this also causes the only negative I find with the dress. There is a sort of puckering that happens around the beading that is quite distracting. You can kind of see it in some of the studio pictures with both colors, but itâs very apparent in person. I am going to try to steam it and see if that helps, but other than that I am completely happy with the purchase. Love!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by annie61 An Absolute Steal!
This dress is a steal on sale with all the delicate (but not overly done) bead work. Warning, this dress runs very large for even the shift style. Usually a S in FP dresses, i'm an XS in this shift with a lot of room to grow. I'm 5'4", 115lbs with a small bust and some hips. It's low cut in the back making this hard to wear with a bra, but a simple bandeau looks nice. Great layering piece. Perfectly low cut in the front to not show the goods. Get this, folks! I'm layering the ballet color with the pale pink vegan leather jacket and it's adorable.

i really like the fit of this shift. i find it very flattering. it has mostly embroidery and less beading than the secret garden shift, making it more casual. the light pink color of the ballet is very pretty. i find the shift to fit true to size, a little loose as designed.

I bought this dress in a size small, I'm 5'5 and 115 pounds, I love the dress its great quality and has fantastic detailing, but the size small hung on me. I would definitely recommend ordering a size smaller. Even though the dress is way to wide and long, i can still wear in tucked into pants as a shirt or with a belt.

When I first saw this dress I absolutely LOVED it. I saw it online a while back and was hesitant to get it since the price is a little high. I finally broke down and got it and I am sooo glad that I did. First of all, price, totally worth it. Second of all, some of the reviews say that this dress is big and I would just like to say DUH. It is called a Shift Dress for a reason. The lenght of the dress is perfect. I am about 5'4 and it hits about 5 or so inches about the knee. The beading on the dress is b-e-a-utiful. It seems like the beads are swen on really well so I am not expecting to be leaving a trail of beads everywhere I go. I got the dress in the Rusty color size Large and I am super happy with my purchase!

This dress looks very nice on. I bought the ballet color, which is a pale pink, not an ivory like it looks in some of the pictures. In my opinion both colors are much prettier in person than online. The beading detail is especially noticeable on the red colored dress. I bought a size xs. I am 5'6 - 5'7; 38 bust, 26 waist, 36 hip. The length is great for me, but I have a short torso. The dress falls just below my finger tips.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by freepeoplegurl77 Beautiful but so short.
I tried this on at my local FP in the rust color. It is incredibly beautiful. The color, pattern, material, and fit are all amazing. The only thing holding me back is that it is so short. I am 5'5" with a long torso and it fits me more like a tunic then a dress. I would definitely have to wear leggings. The back of the dress is pretty low cut and somewhat slips off my shoulders, not sure if I want to layer with this piece. It would make a cute Christmas or New Years dress if you can pull off the length.
