Sheer wrap style maxi dress with allover star print. Ruffle detailing along neckline and front hem. Hip pockets. Full slip included.
very tight fit
i was drawn to the this dress as soon as i saw it, and the print and style didn't disappoint. it does however fit extremely small. i already sized up but it still fits very small. the arms were tight, and it was impossible to close the snap buttons on either side. i can wear it open belted or tie it with the tie at empire-waist (both a little revealing in the front, but i use a safety pin to close it up a bit). the material is very light and mostly sheer and very staticky (static guard fixed it). the back is pretty long on me (5'3") so i needed heels with it.
RUNS INSANELY SMALL ON TOP
So I am always a 0-2 XS/S at FP. I ordered the small in this dress and could barely connect the snaps under chest at top of waist to "wrap" the dress. It was just way too small - which NEVER ever, ever happens. Since the wrap is a faux wrap really and it's the snaps which close the dress and are not adjustable you are simply out of luck if the snaps are not placed well for your bust size. For reference, I am 112lbs, 5'4, 32D, 25 waist. I think I'd have to order a large to have this dress fit me properly on the top because, as the other reviewer said, it wasn't just the bust area - it was just oddly small on top. I couldn't really go up in size because then the slip would be too big (comes with) and the length and lower portion would be too long. Sad because I was beyond psyched for this. Oh well- love Free People- just a miss on this item. Boo.
Beautiful but small arms
The fabric and style is beautiful. I almost always wear a medium but this medium has super small upper arms. So small that I could hardly move much less snap the wrap style. I'm going to try the L but I'm not real optimistic. Hopefully it's a fluke and the next one will be great. I understand why they style it belted over pants in the catalog shots....
