Strappy chiffon dress with sequin embellished embroidery and cutout detail at bust. A flowy, romantic style with a dipped open back, featuring braided ribbon and raw chiffon trim. Side zip closure.
I was so happy when this dress went on sale. Its the perfect combination of classy and casual that can cross over to any event. I am wearing it to a black tie affair. Sure, it arrived a bit wrinkly and the straps weren't done, but a quick steam was all it took to smooth it out. The back is beautiful, its easy to figure out the straps, or make them into your own style. I am 5'11 and 160 lbs, an i ordered a size 10. Love it!
I wanted to love it so much...
Following another review, I bought a size smaller than what I normally wear, and it fit perfectly. However, as much as I wanted to keep it, several things were wrong, straight out of the package. 1- where the strap is supposed to go through near the front, the seam had already ripped apart, and I don't think it was something that was fixable with the same fabric as it was loose. 2- As another reviewer said, it was super wrinkled and frumpy out of the bag, like they had just haphazardly rolled it and tossed it in. 3- The security tag was still on the dress... Seriously?! I hope I don't set off the alarms when I go to one of the boutiques to return it...
Hi tachigo, We're sorry to hear about this. Someone from our team will be in touch. - Free People
i adore this dress! extremely sexy, but very expensive for what you get! still haven't quite figured out the straps in the back, but it looks beautiful. for reference; i am 5'10", a size 4 but with a 32DDD bust. if you have smaller breasts i strongly suggest going down a size. worth the wait if you can get it at a sale price!
I highly suggest this dress be taken with a grain of salt. Free People doesn't seem to have the best normalized standard of sizing throughout their line, and this dress reflects that. Still, the color and details are gorgeous. I love it overall.
Beautiful, fits a little loose
I wore this for a photoshoot in Dec. The color is less of a wine color and more of a raspberry (which is to say, it has more blue in it). It did not fit me like it does on the model, it fit me looser even in the smallest size (I am 5'5", 107 lbs with absolutely no bust to speak of). The low-back detail is stunning in person, on me it was level with my waist, and the stylist on the shoot re-tied the straps on it so that it was completely backless and fit like a halter (so fyi, you can do that, it's a little bit fussy to tie as is). The fabric felt high-quality, and the embroidery shows up much more vibrantly in real life. Perfect for a wedding--we shot it as a bohemian bridal look.I would style it with delicate flat sandals or a minimal ankle-strap heel. It's meant to stand on its own.
I have gotten tons of compliments on this dress--I wore it to a renaissance festival, to a play showcase, and out to lunch. It is quite comfortable, and the picture doesn't do it justice in terms of looks. However, the straps on the back are a separate issue. You are supposed to thread them into two sections in the back of the dress, which FP did not tell me. I discovered this when trying to figure out how this thing was supposed to look all pretty in the back. FP's example on the model barely shows the back, so you get the dress and wonder what to do with these strings. Second, the areas you are supposed to thread them through are delicate--they will pop off really easy, and you have to sew it back to the dress so you can thread the laces through. I ended up tying the ends of the corresponding laces together since they were flying about everywhere and untying this can get risky if you aren't super, super careful.
I wanted to love it, but it didn't love me back.
Beautiful, beautiful dress. Too bad it came rolled up in a ball. It was incredibly wrinkled and looked like something you might find at the bottom o a sale bin in a discount store. No bueno FP! I ordered a size small and could not zip up the bodice. It was so small there, but fit in the bust and hips. The color was true to the photos. The fabric was a little rough and for the price i expected better quality. Sadly it went back in a rolled up little ball just like I received it.
This dress is comfortable!!! I was able to relax and didn't have to worry about how I stood, sat down, or moved around. It doesn't need jewelry or fancy shoes for everyone who sees it to say WOW. The beauty of the fabric, the cut / style, and the color speak for itself. Well done Free People.
