Style: 41252123 Color Code:
American made luxe burnout velvet mini dress featuring a dropped ruffle waist, low scoop back with adjustable tie, and dropped armholes. Lined.
I typically look great in drop waist because I have wide hips and a very boyish upper body, however, this is not flattering at all. The color is beautiful, really, but the shape makes me look chunky and awkward. It looks like a box. Please trust me. It's an awkward fit.
Unique Eye Catching Dress
I ordered this dress in black and after reading the reviews decided to size down. Big mistake..... this dress is true to size ...... I needed to order my regular size. The linning is tight and doesn't let the dress hang properly. Instead of returning it.. I cut the linning out, sowed a stripe of black velvet on both sides and wow what a great effect! The dress is now amazing. I love the velvet material, the pattern is eye catching!! I feel so feminine when I wear it. My closet is full of Free People clothes...... I love all of them but this dress it at the top of my list!! I wear sweaters over it and tops under it for different looks. So happy I purchased this dress!!
I love it
I ordered a small based on other reviews, and fits fine but it is a little short and I can tell it fits just a tad small. But I love the cut and style. it is completely unique to anything I own. The velvet is absolutely gorgeous! I am very pleased with my purchase!
Such a shame
I other reviews are correct, it runs very large. I ordered a size down. I returned it because the fit is a little off, I think it's the lining which doesn't quite sit right under the dress and stops it from hanging right. The fabric is beautiful and shape could be great with some tweaks
So I was so excited when this item went on sale and so of course I had to order it. When it came in the mail and I tried it on I was so disappointed. Honestly I have no idea what to write for the sizing because the shoulders were huge on me and then the bottom of the dress was tight. I'm pretty petite so my legs aren't huge. I ordered an XS so I almost want to return it and exchange it for a S just to see .
Out of all the items in my order, this dress was the one thing I was most excited about. I could tell as soon as I took it out of the wrapping that there might be an issue. It is a bit of an A-shape, being really really wide as it gets longer but I tried to be optimistic. The pattern is amazing but the material is a stiff velvet not a soft pliable one. I tried it on and it was not flattering at all. It looked like I was wearing a dress that was two sizes too big but sizing down would not resolve the fit issue , seems constructed odd. The shoulders almost seemed
Velvet Paper Bag
I had such high hopes for this dress. I'm giving it two stars because the velvet is so pretty, and the picture is accurate in terms of color. But this dress is huge, and so not flattering. It sort of puffs out at the lower seam, and just looks like I put on a fancy large paper bag. Definitely consider going down a size (maybe even two!) if you can, although I'd still be apprehensive since it does kind of puff out strangely. For reference, I'm 5'3 , 115 lbs and got the XS.
