I am so happy with this dress!! I was getting so frustrated with free people maxis...so gorgeous but wayyy too long for us short girls! This dress is an awesome length on my 5'4" frame, and it is so beautiful! I love the tie details on the side, and the print (I got ivory) is great for all seasons! The fabric has some weight to it but is not too heavy, and will be perfectly flowy once the temperature rises and I don't have to wear layers underneath. It is a little shapeless on the bottom but a belt fixes that problem easily and makes the pleats really noticeable. can't wait to wear this again and again! i might have to get the other color. for the record, i am 5'4", 145 lbs, 34DDD, and i got the medium and it fits great. might have even been able to size down to a small but with my chest i rarely take that risk :-)

I'm soo sad to say that I wore this dress for the second time and the strap snapped. It didn't even come apart at the seam, the fabric shredded apart! :( it was my favorite dress. I bought both colors because I loved it so much. I'm just disappointed that its so fragile. My other other dress is starting to do te same and I only wore it once. I'm free people obsessed and just sad about this dress

I am a 34A and bought an xs, and the fabric would not cover my chest AT ALL--it clearly needed MUCH more in the chest to fill it out/pull it up. The whole top half just feels weird to me, with all of the criss-crossing straps. You clearly can't wear it without a bra, but whatever bra you wear will become a major feature of the dress--and on me, would still look odd. So basically it becomes a skirt... no wonder everyone styles it with a sweater on top! I gave it two stars since the skirt half seemed nice enough and prettyish, though I'm not the biggest fan of the print in person.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by FPMandaBurls Finally, a maxi dress for short girls!
I have always wanted a maxi dress but I am only 5'0 and they are all so long on me! When we got this in the store I was skeptical and didn't even try it on at first because of my past experiences with maxi dresses. Until my SM told me to try it... When I did I seriously almost fell over. IT. WASN'T. TOO. LONG. In fact, it was perfect! The ONLY complaint I have is that it's a little loose but that just makes it comfy. If you want to create more of a waist, just throw on a belt! So if you're little like me, and love maxi dresses, this is the dress for you! It's beautiful paired with the double wrap waist best and the scallop edge crop underneath! Also, because of the lace up side a bandeau will show nicely underneath, too. For winter it looks amazing with the shaggy knit pull over or a long cardigan! Loads of ways to experiment! :D

I love this dress! I ordered it online and was anticipating it's arrival. I tried on the ivory one in stores, but thought it was a little too bright and "happy" for me as I am more of a dark skinned, sharp featured girl. I wasn't sure if the navy one would look any better, but when I tried it on at home, I fell in love! I also love how some girls styled this dress by layering a loose top over it. I plan to try the same. The only reason why I gave this item 4 stars is because it does fit a LITTLE awkward on the top. I'm afraid that I'll somehow accidentally flash people while wearing this, but hopefully the straps will stay in place. Excited to wear this for spring!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by TSquirrel Beautiful but be wary
Fp: my dress strap snapped off within an hour of putting it on! and my express shipping took longer than the 2-3 days,not happy :-(
Okay ladies so this dress is amazing however everyone needs to know that the straps are too thin to support the weight of the amazing fabric. I would encourage all to still purchase this dress because its a stunner and I've never gotten so many compliments on a purchase from here ever!! My only thing is ladies after purchasing re-enforce the straps before wearing or there is a huge possibility they will just randomly snap.
Measurements: Im 5'9, 130Lbs and I bought a small. The hem hits me about mid shin, which is a sweet, unique length for a maxi. As far as size, the dress does run a little loose but a small would be good for small girls with a bust.

So I have been drooling over this beautiful dress ever since it has been on the market, and just last week I saw it in stores and decided to try it on. However, the only size in the store was an XS, I am 5'8'' size M and the XS fit me. It was a little small on the straps. but totally wearable. I suggest trying it on in stores before purchasing it, or definitely order a size smaller than your regular size!

I was in love at first sight when I saw this dress online but hesitant to try it out because in my experience FP clothes don't tend to flatter a girl with hips. I am 5'3 and 130lb and ordered my usual size small and am sooooo glad I gave it a try and even more thrilled that it looks beautiful! I put it on and wore it to a birthday party where I got compliments from everyone there. I wore a cropped shirt over it but it's also beautiful by itself. Fabric is gorgeous and only slightly heavy...might be a little much for really hot temperatures but otherwise the dress is a great length (a few inches off of the ground with a little more length in the back than in the front). This dress will definitely add a burst of beauty to my closet - so glad that I own it!!!
