Style: 29002409 Colour:
Long-sleeved speckled thermal Hi-Lo midi with a big drapey hood.
Love the large hood!!
After reading the reviews that this dress was quite roomy, I decided to order the black in a size small. Being 5'10, I was a little nervous of how the dress was going to fit length wise. I got it in the mail today and I just love it!! I have to say, it does feel a bit "maternity" but it is so comfortable and looks very cute! The length is perfect to wear as a dress. I hope this review is helpful for other taller girls. I know a lot of the FP dresses fit more on the very very mini side. I will eventually get it in another colour for sure!
Gray Hooded Dress
I love the pics of this on the website but didnt like it as much in person. I went with the gray which could have been part of the problem. Im 5'3 about 115lbs. I always order xs from free people but I might order the red in the small. I need to size up bc the sleeves were too short and i felt like the front was too short for me to truly wear as a dress. Also i am a 32DD and the bust line was too high on my chest.
This dress is adorable. I got it in the gray and the speckling is such a nice touch. I am larger than a size 12, and I am very busty, but a lot of the roomier FP pieces in a size large fit me, and this one is no exception. If you don't want a loose fit, I would recommend sizing down. What I like about this dress is that the hood gives it a relaxed feel, but the fact that the sleeves are a slimmer fit makes the slouchiness of the dress look intentional, and not ill-fitted.
This is my absolute favourite clothing item
I wear it so often and get soooo many compliments on it. I have it in the green colour, which doesn't seem to be available anymore. It's so comfortable and I really love that it's hooded.
my new favorite house dress
I am a medium and bought a medium…it's large enough to fit 4 of me under the skirt! The top actually fits at the edge of my shoulders and the hood hangs nicely down the back. The thermal is very thin but extremely warm, especially with the hood up, I am very cozy. The hood wears more like a cloak hood with redundant folds. There is nothing small about this dress, I can imagine, not even in the extra small. The arms do fit tighter than anything else but even they stretch. The only thing missing on this dress is pockets. Dusty plum color is more burgundy than purple.
very nice, with one problem….
I bought this several months ago…and love it in every way except that the hood just added too much weight focused in the upper back area of this otherwise light-weight garment, so the dress would be pulled down in the back/upwards in the front, causing the whole dress to tilt backwards! So….I cut the hood off!!! I can't believe I'm admitting this, but now it's wonderfully perfect and comfy. I left about a 3 inch 'collar' and I don't think it is obvious that it's had surgery, given FP's usual fabulous unfinished look. I'm 5'2", 103 lbs and the XS is excellent. I think the slim sleeves offset the looseness of the body of the dress in a very flattering way.
The arms on this run tight and it is not a piece that I felt could be thrown on over anything. Its odd in that the body/dress part are large and billowy and then again the arms are just tight. I wanted to love it, but just couldn't.
Best casual dress ever
One disclaimer - I have yet to wash it, but this dress is fantastic. It's as casual as dresses get, but super cute. I'm going to Maui next week and might use it as a cover up also. I'm 5' 4" and 120 pounds and had to exchange the small for an extra small. It's very roomy to say the least, but that's part of what makes it so fun.
I ordered this in the Heather Grey and it is divine! The colour is pretty much as online, the speckled flex looks great. It is the normal FP oversized look for this type of style which I love and this dress hangs beautifully, the fabric is neither too thick or too thin. I am normally a xs/s and the xs is perfect. I love it so much I ordered the plum when it came out, but I am unsure if it will be my colour and then OMG the olive was released a couple of days later which is one of my favourite colours, so have ordered that one as well. Thanks for such a unique piece FP, I can never find anything like this in Australia :)
Way too large
I really wanted to love this dress because it's so comfy, however it was just way too large and not flattering. I usually wear a small, but I sized down to xs and it was still too big. If you like clothes super roomy it could work for you... Personally I felt it looked like a maternity dress.
