Wish I loved it
They only had one size left, XS, and I'm normally between an XS and S in Free People clothing (I've never tried on/owned a FL&L piece) I thought I'd give it a shot. Positives: absolutely gorgeous in person and was the right length for me (I'm 5'6
gorgeous dress but...
When this dress went on sale I was ecstatic because I had been eyeing it for the longest time. The dress is stunning in person and the way the light reflects off of it is incredible. My only issue is with the cut around the chest area. I was hoping that it would be more roomy because I have a larger bust size, but to my dismay it is a little too snug for me in that area. However, it does fit everywhere else and if the next size up was still available I would definitely exchange it, but I will sadly be returning this dress.
Ordered this when it went on sale in cranberry, my go to is usually grey and blue so I went out of the box and I'm SO glad I did! It's beautiful and vibrant and so light weight, sleeves are sheer as well as the overlay but the slip underneath is really nice. It's shiny and metallic and just gorgeous. The v neck isn't too low it actually lays perfectly in my opinion. I read bad reviews about it being thin and it is thin but it's so pretty! I am thoroughly enjoying it and getting so many compliments, it'll transition so nicely into fall. Thinking about wearing it under my graduation gown this fall. Highly recommend this dress! It's so flattering.
Don't Buy It
I got this dress when it was on sale because online it looked so cute. I ordered an XS in the red color. When I got the dress it looked a little big. When I put it on it looked like a sac on me. Needless to say I returned the dress.
Love the dress... But...
I absolutely love this dress! I was so excited to see free people had for love and lemons! I wore the dress once for about 10 minutes and when I went to put it on again I saw the back of the dress had two huge rips. I was really upset to see this, since I have never had an issue with free people's quality before...

Not too happy
This was my very first order from Free People and this dress came in the mail today, so I ran home and tried it on. It's beautiful, a little tight in the bust, but overall so cute. As I was hanging it up in my closet, I noticed there was a tear in the front... already. I literally wore it for two minutes and now, an almost $300 dress is torn in the front. I am very sad and am looking for a way to fix this. Hopefully no other rips or tears happen to this dress, because you would think at this price, it wouldn't rip before I've even worn it out of my house....

I'm a long time customer of free people and this is my first real disappointment. Treated myself to this dress over the holidays but the first time I wore it both of the back shoulder seems ripped. For the price of the dress I expect better quality so so disappointed because I love the dress.

The pictures of this dress do not do it justice!! It is just beautiful in person. The colors are so much more rich and vibrant. I LOVE the cranberry. Typical to FLL, it runs super super small. I'm 5'6" and 125lb. Usually an XS in FP but had to get this in a M for it to fit my shoulders and I do not have broad shoulders! So absolutely size up 1 or 2 sizes. But this dress is so gorgeous and I can't wait to wear it!
Dress is very fragile and seams tear very easily
I love this dress but definitely get at least one size too big. The small size fit but the seam along the back tore so I exchanged for a medium, same thing. I finally exchanged for a large, however I haven't worn it yet and noticed that it too has a tear along the back seam! Not sure what to do at this point.

Exceeded my expectations
After reading other reviews on this dress, I was hesitant to purchase it. However, as soon as I tried the dress on in charcoal, I loved it! Although the size S dress was a little short on my 5'4 frame, it was so flattering, and I received compliments throughout the night. I highly recommend.
