Embroidered floral mesh mini slip dress featuring crisscross straps in back. Lined.
I thought this dress would be super fun and effortless. It is made to long and the straps are made to long as well. The dress doesn't allow for you to wear a bra, so you'd think it would give you more support. Maybe all I needed was to go down a size..
Not what I expected at all
I am five foot three, 120 lbs, B cup, ordered the XS. This dress is really really stretchy, like stretchy to the point of literally zero support. So you see how the front of the bodice is on the model? If you have even bee stings, the material will sag open so there's way too much skin showing, and the elastic is really loose so the too-long straps dangle. So with no support, there needs to be a bra. But there's no place to put one. The back is open and criss crossy, the front has weird shaped boob areas and an additional peek a boo keyhole. The looseness causes the bra to be the main attraction. I wasn't going to keep the dress but I found a possibility wherein I have an extremely pretty bralette that has lots of lace that happens to more or less match the design of the dress and I've pinned it so there's no wardrobe malfunctions. So not worth a hundred bucks.
Love this dress can wear alone or with a shirt or colored bra underneath! Stretchy material forms to body in all the right places. Made for the curvy girl. I am always a medium in Free People dresses and this ran true to size!
Cute, easy summer dress.
I was so excited to receive the dress, but when I pulled it out, the color was a little bit more dull than I expected. The photos on the website pull a little more vibrant blue than the actual dress, but only slightly. However, I do believe with a tan, I could pull the color off. Also, though both layers are mesh, I could not see through the dress so that is a plus! I normally wear a size small in free people and am 160lbs, 34DD (the small is normally a tad tight), but I ordered a medium just to be safe. The medium is just too big on me. The elastic band is too loose and the straps are too long on me (non-adjustable), making it easy for a wardrobe malfunction. I want to exchange for a small to see if that works better, but am hesitant to pay the shipping in case it yet again does not work out.
