perfect summer dress
I bought this dress on sale and didn't have my expectations too high. The no bra, backless dresses rarely work out for me but I gave it a try and I'm so glad I did! I crossed the straps in the back for more support and it holds everything up! It is super revealing though, so I wouldn't recommend for a family event etc. The only disappointment was the length, which I find to be a common problem with free people. Make no mistake, this dress is SHORT. I will either be finding a way to add an inch or two to the bottom or wearing shorts underneath. I got the coral and wish I had caught the green color as well. Overall a great buy for the price!
Perfect for my shape.
Let me admit up front I am curvy hourglass shaped with most breasts than I probably need. At a 32G this dress not only keeps the girls in place, but also makes them look amazing! I honestly couldn't be happier with the dress. It is short on me, but I am tall and am used to wearing shorts under all my summer dresses in case the wind blows so it wasn't a issue. If you are on the fence about the dress, get it. It is perfect. It is roomy in the bust area which is great!
I was a little intimidated by the straps on this dress at first, but happy I tried it own! It's a very feminine and sexy dress that hugs your curves and is perfect for a summer night out. I got it in ivory and while it is a bit sheer, a skin toned undie will help. As far as the straps falling off the shoulders, I'd suggest double sided garment tape or criss crossing in the back. Either is a quick fix and worth it. Caught the dress on sale and ordered more colors. Gave 4 stars because I had to have a few of the buttons reinforced before wearing.
completely see through
I received this dress with a button missing. The straps were overly wrinkled and the dress was completely see through. The design is cute but was still a bit loose (I got an ivory XS one). I think I would still have kept the dress if the fabric wasn't see through, because I really liked the style of this dress.
Cross the straps in the back
I was compelled to provide a suggestion after reading last three reviews about straps falling off shoulders. Just change straps so they cross in the back. Works perfectly to keeps straps on shoulders and still super cute in the back. LOVE this dress!!!! 5'1, 100 lbs, 34B, petite -- XS fits to perfection. Comfortable, cute. Get tons of compliments every time I wear it. Even super cute with shirt underneath, makes it bit more casual. Waiting for more colors. Highly recommend !!!!!!
Too loose and the fit was poor
I am a US size 8 (M), and I bought the S to be safe. There is one review before me and it said it was 'roomy' so that's why I bought a size smaller. Still, the shoulder straps were too loose for my shoulders and would fall down when I moved. Although the waist and skirt length was right, there was too much fabric in the chest area, all in all the fitting was pretty bad. I was disappointed at this purchase and will be returning this item. My boyfriend said it looked like a girl wearing her mother's clothes. Not attractive!
When I saw this online I had to have it, so I ordered it in an XS in the green (which the color is true to the picture here). When it arrived one of the buttons on the side had fallen off. When I tried it on, it was very cute, but somewhat bit in the bust. I think because the back is so open and the straps are so close to the sides of your back rather than the middle of your back, it makes the bust gap a bit. I exchanged my dress for a new one so the button wouldn't be an issue, and as I was trying that one on, one of the buttons fell off on that one too! The XS is my usual size and a S would be too big. Despite the button issue, I may still keep it...it's just so cute on and the fabric is great. I'll just have to find a way to keep the straps in place since the placement is a bit different!
