Style: 31587108 Colour:
Semi-sheer babydoll slip dress with embroidery throughout. Raw trim detailing on the bust. Smocked elastic band in back with "V" style straps. Raw uneven hem.
I bought this dress to take to Jamaica with me. Everyone loved the dress. I normally wear a small, I am 5" tall, so this dress wasn't too short on me. However, I ordered a medium because I thought that the models looked rather small busted. I am glad I did. While the dress did not fit well under the bust, the extra size allowed me to have it altered for a custom fit. Love this dress.
I guess I didn't pay attention
.... but non-adjustable straps? I would not have even thought that that's an option to be honest. I've got my eyes on this piece for a long time but now it's gonna be an effort to wear it, with special bra (because any bra with the back part will not be covered by the slip) and all. The way it's fitting me I have to pull the front way up to prevent it from being too revealing but that makes the back part not really on the same level as the front. It's not really an issue but it's still weird. I'm honestly thinking about cutting the straps and re-sew them because of how uncomfortable they make me. The pattern is cute though.
I am absolutely thrilled with this dress! The fit was perfect, not too long and not too short (I'm 5' 4"). I ordered the small but the XS probably would have worked as well as I am not large busted at all. It moves beautifully and the embroidery is gorgeous. The color was the same as in the photos. I can't wait to wear it this summer.
Light, comfortable, yet feminine
I have this sundress in the graphite with navy floral embroidery. I am 5'7 33-25-35, and the XS fits me the same as shown on the FP model. The dark color is not show through even though there is no lining and the material is very lightweight. If you have the meadow medallions slip from the previous year, the material is similar to that. The section of material that covers the chest is very narrow above the empire waist, so (for me) it must be worn with a lace bralette or bandeau that is meant to be seen, or else worn completely without. I plan to wear this sundress on extremely hot days in California, when I just want to throw on something light & breezy, while still looking cute & girly.
More versatile than it looks
I'm a size 12-14, bust 36F. Needless to say, there are a lot of pieces I cannot wear. Usually a babydoll shape is not a good idea for someone like me, but I gave this one a try. I am super short-waisted, so the straps are very long. That is the reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5; the straps are not adjustable. That being said, after at first thinking there was no way I could wear this, I tried pulling the bodice of the dress down all the way so the straps are not bunching, (then most of my chest was showing) and tried on a little fitted white tee underneath, and I love it this way! I will be layering this with tanks and tees. Good for a little modesty. Less busty people than me will look great in it on its own. Nice material that is flowy and yet has some weight to it, so it's not clinging anywhere. Also actually seems to minimize a large bust a bit, which I am thankful for. I probably could have gone with a medium, but decided I liked the roominess in the large. This means it must run pretty large, if I could fit in a medium. I bought the washed plum, which has a nice charcoal gray pattern on it. I am not sure, but this might be so roomy that it might be a problem for petite gals. But give it a try! I think I will be wearing this a lot, and can even see the washed plum color working in the fall with tights and boots and a cardigan.
Great Slip, Bad Straps
This is slip is beautiful, I ordered the mint color and wow, took my breath away! I went with the XS, but most of cleavage was showing even though it was a super flattering dress. I'm 5-6, 32C and the chest area was just way too big on me. Sadly you cannot adjust the straps either so I had to take it back as the fit didn't work for wearing it out.
I love this; the style, the easy, breezy feel, the effortless and not too sheer slip dress that is perfect for spring, summer, and fall! HOWEVER, the sizing is inconsistent. I tried on the mint one (back when it was in stores) and the XS fit perfectly. The bust wasn't too loose where the empire waist hit, and it was so flattering. I went in stores the other day to see the new colors (I couldn't make a decision online so I had to see which color looked better in person - boy, it's hard to decide even now!), but the Snow White (with blue) color fits similarly to the mint, and the Washed Plum (with graphite?) fits way too loose and makes you look pregnant! I absolutely love the plum color, and really want that slip, but I can't get over how big the XS is. I haven't purchased either one because while I love the fit of the white, I love the color of the purple... I am not sure if I order a plum one online, if it will fit like the white or mint XS or like the one I tried on... $98 is hard to justify on something that is inconsistently sized.
Feminine Boho Beauty and Charm!
I ordered the 'Shell' color (pictured white & gold on site) but beware it is not white, it is dark cream and the gold embroidery is not gold, it is brown. The photos on the site look like a completely different dress. I was expecting white and gold but still love it in the cream/brown, especially because it pairs perfectly with my brown Joe Lace Up Boots! Can't wait to wear them together! The detailing of the embroidery is delicate and beautiful and the layered hem gives it a fun bohemian flare. Definitely have to wear an extra slip underneath as its a lightweight/see through flowy material. Also note, the straps are not adjustable. For size reference, I am 5'4, 122lbs, 34C and I originally ordered a Medium (per my friends suggestion because of my 'C' bust size) however the medium was so big I was swimming in it, it was just hanging by the straps and was not fitted around my bust at all. So I exchanged it for the Small and now it fits me perfectly. Holds nicely all the way around my chest and covers my bust in all the right places. I can see wearing this dress all year long in CA! However I do expect I'll have to be extra careful wearing and handling the cleaning/washing of this item because of the fine/delicate detailing and the straps are also very, very delicate. But what can I say, it totally has the sweetest bohemian charm!
In love <3
Like other reviews on here, I also found the slip to be a bit loose on me and I'll be sizing down. Other than the sizing issue, this slip is p o s i t i v e l y heart-stoppingly beautiful. I wish I could wear it everyday. I'm happy I went for Shell; the gold leaf/flower details add a sort of grecian elegance while the shorter length of the slip coupled with the whimsical fraying hemline play up its flirty vibe.
