Huge. Hate it.
Free People is my favorite brand and while I have ordered a few things here and there that didn't work out, I have never hated anything I have purchased. But I hate this dress. It is huge, unflattering, cheaply made, not worth the price at all even if it did fit. I am surprised at the couple of good reviews it has gotten, honestly. The dress closes very strangely. It's a wrap dress so it wraps around the front and ties on one side on the inside. Then there is a hook that is supposed to hook onto an eye, but there is no eye. I am assuming you are supposed to hook it to the loops in the dress?!?! I have no idea, they are cotton and not strong so it doesn't seem like that would work long term. I am 5'3", 130lbs, 34DD, 29 waist, 39 hips and I normally wear a small or medium. I ordered this in small and I was swimming in it. It is not form fitting at all like it looks on the models, I don't think going down a size would help much. And I have pretty large breasts but my chest did not fill out the small at all. I swear the cute little waif models must be wearing an XXXS!
I ordered the XS in black after reading previous reviews and confirm the dress runs a little big. However, this is a "wrap" style dress so I was able to adjust the dress to fit my torso rather than using the default ties on the inside of the dress. I am 5' and 110 lbs and the dress fell to right above my knees. I was pleasantly surprised by the fit given my height. I was a little concerned the dress was not conservative enough for a wedding but it was perfect. More conservative than I thought, the back is very well done, the dress covers the appropriate areas and was very comfortable to wear!
Huge and hole-y
I was super excited about receiving this dress in white as it is absolutely stunning in the pictures online. Unfortunately, I received a product that cost me $150 and I wouldn't even buy it for $15.Aside from the fact that I could fit 3 of me into the M, the "net" crochet part is caught up in the awesome ladder type detailing and the squares going up my back are missing several pieces.
Hi lbthomson We're sorry to hear about your dress! Someone from our team will be in touch shortly. - Free People
I bought the white in medium and its beautiful! I normally wear a medium in FP dresses but as the other review mentions, this is a little on the loose side. The dress ties together from the inside and then a hidden clasp connects it in the front. No zippers, however. The dress is lined but still sheer in my opinion. Now, the rest of the upper half of the dress is truely sheer and see through without a doubt. Over all a lovely stunning design! I even bought the necklace the model is wearing to go with!
Large but good
Good quality, not see through because it is lined well. Good length too not too short. I am 5'8 and 125-30 pounds and I usually order a small or medium and I ordered a small and it was much too large around the torso. Ordered an xs so I hope that will be small enough
