Casual, cool maxi dress with a blouson waist and hip pockets. Slight stretch.
One of nine exclusive, in-house labels. Effortless seaside styles.
Thick yet still see-through
I tried this dress in white and the fabric is thick and really soft, so comfy! BUT it was very see-through in the skirt part. The top of the dress was unfortunately very unflattering, as it had several layers of fabric and the wideness of the tank "straps" just hit in a really frumpy way. Sad, but not completely unexpected. A pity because the skirt part fit very nicely.
Beautiful and well-made but...
...the top was just way too big for me (34B). I probably should have ordered a small rather than a medium but the skirt part fit perfectly over my 36" hips and the length was just right for my 6 foot tall frame. Alas, it had to go back...
loved the look - but really big & tons of material
I was a little disappointed when I got this dress....I was really looking forward to it - it really is beautiful BUT I was swimming in it!. Granted, I am only 5'3" but the waist part hung down abound the middle of my butt & the length would have had to be drastically altered ($$$)....so I returned it - it would have cost me another $50 to have it fit me properly, so sadly I am retuning it! It is a really nice flattering style and I would recommend buying it....BUT SIZE DOWN! :0)
Great long dress! Perfect for summer
The material on this dress is nicely thick, in the way that its not see through and it hangs well. It's breatheable fabric. I love drop waist dresses and this is one. I ordered the white in small. Although my bust is 34D, and measurements on this thing are 34" around the chest, it fit great and wasn't tight, and the skirt fits perfectly tight around my hips #35"#. So like other reviews, it might run big, but I always buy smalls from FP and they usually fit perfectly. I'm 5'8" and this dress does go almost to the floor, which I love. Thanks to the fact it is sleeveless, its a good choice for summer, its so easy to wear.
sizing & shipping
I had to exchange the dress for a smaller size, it runs large due to so much material and although I like this dress, I was very disappointed in the condition of it when received; it was rolled up in to a ball and I had to iron it before even trying it on. Usually, when I receive dresses from other sites, they are on hangers and NOT rolled up and put in to plastic bags.
I am normally a medium and that's what I ordered, but it runs a tad large so I am sending back for a small. This is the 2nd FP Beach dress I've ordered and I am finding they run slightly large. I had to send the last dress back for a small also. But other than that I really love this dress. It's flattering and the material is a lot thicker than I thought it was from the picture. Very comfy and pretty on. I give it 2 thumbs up.
