I ordered this dress in black and I couldn't have returned it faster. the back strap was way to long and so was the dress. The band is placed in a weird place around your ribs and only makes you look chubby. In my opinion, this dress is only for super tall girls with small boobs and a tiny build.
beautiful but bizarre sizing
I bought this dress in a two. I'm always a two in FP clothing. It fits wonderful everywhere except the last two inches of the zipper which is simply too small. I had to take it to a tailor to see if they can make it work somehow, when I put it on the owner told me he'd seen not one but TWO other girls with the same dress and the exact same problem. Now I've had to pay over $100 more to have it altered so it's wearable. I want to love this dress but now that I've had to invest so much in it I'm wishing I'd just returned it.
I ordered the dress in size 8 hough I normally wear a size 6 sometimes 4 in dresses and the waist is really snug, like it really fits small! I am a 32C bra size and the chest area was very weirdly bagging and bunchy. Overall the dress itself is quite pretty and a nice weight and colour (I got the pink one), but the dress I received had little holes almost like scissor cuts in the front and a spot (possibly a grease stain??) on the back, both weren't very noticeable but the initial price plus shipping cost makes it unacceptable. It also took way too long too ship though I payed for express as I wanted it for my graduation, I am definitely returning it!
Hi paigeypoovanbrun, We're sorry to hear about your Fallon Dress. Someone from our team will be in touch. - Free People
I received this dress and was automatically in awe over the rich color and braided detailing on the back. I am only 5'3" and this dress fits perfectly! I toss on my favorite pair of heels or booties and the look ties together really nicely. I love that I don't have to worry about getting it hemmed! Really beautiful dress. I can't wait to wear it to summer occasions!
I ordered the dress in black and it just came in today. Cons: This dress does not have any cons other than cons related to fitting. So, I am 5'7, around 140 but a lot of muscle mass. I am a 36 B and I ordered a 6 in the dress. The dress fit well length-wise, and heels would easily transform the dress in the length department. However, even though I am very small on top- small rib cage, waist...etc- the dress was pretty tight. The sash covers up the fact that the zipper couldn't quite zip all the way. There is no way I could fit into an 8 without looking like a drowned little child and with my chest revealed to everyone. Pros: This dress is an absolute steal for the price. It is extremely high quality and the fabric is A+. It also looks stunning. It exudes a classic beauty kind of look that definitely will impress. With this dress, less is definitely more!
I was very nervous about this dress because so many comments referenced fit issues. I have a very long torso, small boobs (34A) and am slightly above average height (5'6"). This dress fits me really well. I did refer to the FP size chart and compared the measurements for the size that the model is wearing (4), which seemed to insanely correspond to a 00 on the size chart. So the fit is definitely off from normal FP sizing. I am normally a 6 to an 8, and I ordered the 8 and the 10, thinking that the 10 might not even fit. The waist is not empire, but a true natural waist. Luckily, I have a small waist, so the 8 fits really well. I will be wearing this as a bridesmaid dress, and will have to have the back braid shortened slightly to get a more secure fit in the boob area (and will probably have cups sewn in as well). It is quite long, so shorter girls will probably need to get it shortened quite a bit. But other than that, I am really happy with this dress. I got the magenta, which is not quite as bright as the photo (which I think is a good thing). So, I would recommend this dress, but it seems to fit a very specific body type (tall-ish, small waist, small boobs).
I bought this for my prom dress. It just came in the mail today, and I absolutely love it! I am 6 ft tall and got my usual size 4. It fits me perfectly, and the fabric hangs very nicely. I was worried that the top would be too loose, since I'm pretty flat-chested, but it's actually very comfortable and isn't at all too big, so I don't have to worry about "side boob" even though the top is cut close to the chest. I may use some fashion tape just in case, which I think would work for others who do have this problem, but the whole dress fits great for me! I was also worried the braided strap wouldn't be the right length/fit because it isn't adjustable, but I lucked out on that too! The dress came with a matching belt, which I like to wrap around twice and tie in the back. Gorgeous dress, and I can't wait to wear it along with some FP jewelry! :)
I just bought this dress in a free people store after months of searching and I could not be happier! I love the way it fits and its so elegant. The material is gorgeous and not as shiny as i had thought. All i can say is THIS DRESS WAS THE BEST PURCHASE. It will not dissapoint
Gorgeous dress but size issues & missing belt
I'm 5'10" and usually a size 8 in a dress. Sometimes I can even wear a size 6 dress without issue. I ordered a black size 10 as the measurements all seemed as if this was sized small. I was right. The 10 fits fine in the waist and, yes, that zipper is hard to pull up, but my dress was missing the black sash AND agree with the other poster about my chest being all over the place. It's quite loose in the chest area (I'm a 34/C) and I would have to use tape to make sure things stayed put. It's absolutely lovely, but it really does need the silk belt. The gathers around around the waist area don't lay flat and the belt would press these down, making it more flattering. So I ordered another dress in a size 10 (this one was the taupe one). Again, it came without the belt. Same fit in the chest. Same tough zipper. So it's just how this dress is designed. BTW: I would recommend anyone questioning FP sizes to look at what the model is wearing (and the measurements given) and then compare this to the chart. If you see a difference...then apply that difference to all of the sizes to know what you should order. Some of the dresses made FOR FP (rather than BY FP) have different sizing, so look at the chart and what the model is wearing to get the best fit.
