*By Flynn Skye
This is such a pretty dress! I am 5'6" and 115 pounds, and the 4 fits perfectly. I have a very small bust, so the top fit fine and the cutout is well placed. One thing to note: the dress is super long. Personally, I always look for maxis that are floor-skimmers, so this is perfect for me. I always pay attention to that length measurement, and usually look for about 57'' to 60'' as the perfect floor-length maxi. But if you are average height like me or shorter, be aware that it will be super long. But the look of the dress is so unique and pretty, and I love it! It's the perfect spring dress to get me out of the winter blues.
Best for small chests and straight figures
I was so excited for this dress. I had read a previous review that said to size up, so I did, but unfortunately it's just not big enough in the chest. I'm normally a Small in Free People, so I was really hoping it would work out, but I think because this is technically a different brand, I should have gone with the Large. Unfortunately, it's sold out in the color I wanted, so I can't. Though it didn't cover me enough in the chest, other parts of the dress were too big. It was quite long on my 5'4" frame, and was too big in the tummy/waist area. I am a C cup, so I would recommend the size M for B cups and below. I also have a big chest for the size of the rest of my body, so I encourage others not to loose heart. I think those with a straight or boyish figure and a small chest might have the best luck. girls with any curve might find that they need to have it tailored. For what it is, it's lovely. It makes me feel like I belong on the beach in Mexico. Very lovely, very feminine, just not right for my body, so unfortunately I will have to return.
Gorgeous, Sexy, Ethereal!
I just received this dress yesterday, and I cannot wait till spring/summer to wear it! Ahh.. it is soooo amazing. I was totally not expecting this dress to work on me since I am a D cup and the bust situation on this dress looked unpromising, but I cannot believe that it actually works. The halter strap is very secure, and the bandeau top is tight enough to hold breasts in place. I actually bought one of those adhesive Nu-bra's to wear with this dress, but I could wear the dress without one as well. The cut-out is not too big, and is in a very flattering place, showing off the chest area directly underneath the breast--an area that is generally pretty flat and slim on most bodies. It doesn't cut out too low to reveal too much.. just a little bit of strategic, sexy nudity. The off-shoulder cuffs are soo pretty and flattering, and they definitely stay in place, but the elastic is not too tight either. Perfect! The cut of the dress is *extremely* flattering... a straight shealth style that flares out at the bottom for a goddess type look, and slimmer cut on the torso to show off a nice body line. I will say that Flynn Skye does run very small. I am usually a size 8 and I take a Small or Medium in Free People sizes, depending on the dress. I got a Large in Flynn Skye, and the hip portion of the dress is a bit snug. The material will stretch a bit with being worn-in, but word to the wise-- SIZE UP!!!!! I took a chance on this dress, and it definitely paid off! I own another Flynn Skye dress, and it is the most gorgeous and very very flattering cut dress I have ever owned, so I figured I'd try this one as well, and it's also amazing. I highly recommend trying Flynn Skye designs, of which Free People carries several. Give it a shot!
