I was rather shocked, after seeing the style pics, how long this ended up being on my 6'0 frame, lining included. It was also pretty loose in the waist and hips, when I almost always order a Medium. After looking at some of the pics, I decided this was not necessarily something I could wear to a family dinner, which wasn't the plan anyway. But rather, this ended up being something my Gran would have responded to as, "oh, how cute," which wasn't what I had in mind. Actually, I was apprehensive in the other direction: though I'm neither big chested nor big hipped, I've got the figure and legs that make a sexy dress go from sexy to "okay, now you're just flaunting," which is something Gran wouldn't think so cute, not to flaunt or anything. So, I toyed with the idea of having it altered, then noticed a tear in the side lace, and oh, darn, the security device was still attached to the dress. Even if I wanted to have it altered, that would have been tricky or a really tricky repair, since I'm too far from any store that could fix that little issue...and I shouldn't have to spend the gas/time to have such an issue remedied anyway. And in the end, it would have cost me over $100, and I don't know if this particular dress was even worth the sale price. I adore FP products and have been more loyal of a customer than I can technically afford to be since I got hooked. But this one was a no-go.

I love this dress but for some reason it was huge! I don't know if I just got a weird one, but the xs hung on me like a sack. I'm 5'6 and 114 pounds and normally the xs fits me perfectly.

This is a nice dress, I am usually wow-Ed by all my free people purchases but this one was just...good. I bought the blue, I think white would have been a better choice. I also think it's a universally good fitting dress. I may exchange it, still unsure

I ummed and arhed about ordering this dress as I don't usually do bodycon, but I kept seeing lovely style shots in the FP gallery of people looking fabulous in it and, when it went in the sale I thought I would give it a shot. Now whilst I cannot profess to look as good as those in the style gallery I am surprised at how I do look- which isn't bad!!! My usual size is a little loose on me so it is not so bodycon after all and it comes to just below my knees, as I am very tall. I have the ivory with lovely pale pink stripes in it and it is gorgeous. I am very glad I bit the bullet and went for it as I think it is a lovely addition to my wardrobe.

I do like this dress, but had to send it back. I am 5'8 and the dress hit me at an awkward spot on my calf. It wasn't long enough to be a maxi but not short enough to be a midi. Not flattering on the leg for me. I think because I'm tall, that is the reason why it hit me in a weird spot. It is a gorgeous dress though. The lace has pretty pink stripes on the side, which you can't see in the photo that well.

Beautiful length and wonderful fabric. I purchased the "black" one which is actually a deep blue but still very pretty. Fit perfectly and appropriate for any occasion.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by bettyboot Very feminine and sexy
This dress is very feminine, sexy and shows just the right amount of your figure. The fit is true to size but the chest area is a little big (I am very small chested though). I am 5' 8" 125 pounds and got a size small. The lining is a bit too short. Great sale price for a dress!

I have quite wide hips and am usually terrified of anything described as 'bodycon' so took a while before deciding to go ahead and order this dress.
I ordered the black/blue expecting it to be black with blue bits but when receiving it, it is actually mainly blue with black 'bits' or 'stripes' which makes it even nicer.
It is beautiful, I've said that sizing runs slightly loose, however, it fits perfectly for how I wanted it to fit, especially round the hips, still follows my shape without clinging or stretching like some bodycons.
I ordered it for a friends birthday, which it will be perfect for and allow room for eating and will also be perfect for holidays with flats.
My only problem is the underskirt/lining is VERY short at the back, bearly covering my behind and rides up considerably when you walk, I will have to extend this before wearing.
This is my very first Free People purchase, it wont be my last :).
