Style: 35131663 Colour:
American made silky bodycon midi dress in a floral pattern. Features a pencil skirt and built in busiter. Side boning for extra support. Hidden back zip.
Horrible for curvy/hour glass
I'm usually xs/s at free people, this looks awful on me. Too tight in the bust and loose in the waist as an xs. Hips are a great comfy hug. But, the cuts to accentuate bust lay oddly and look ultimately like I'm trying too hard instead of sultry and graceful which the print I thought would lend to. Disappointed. Silky fabric feel but not a structured piece, wish I could make it work but not worth the expense -I'd rather buy true vintage that hugs better.
Warning- creative bra solution NEEDED.
I thought this dress was so chic. Got it in white. It reminded me of Audrey Hepburn at a boat party. Unfortunately, it is made by a different company and so it is sized differently than normal FP sizes. If you look it up from the company it is from, the shoulder straps are falling off the model. I would recommend this for my broad shouldered FP sisters, or recommend a good tailor. I say this because it is still such a beautiful dress. I couldn't stop touching it, the fabric feels incredible. Bust tape is also most likely needed, or some other creative bra solution. I frankly can't NOT wear a bra and would be happy to avoid a wardrobe malfunction at all costs.
I purchased this dress in red while on sale and it did not disappoint! I am a true size 2 with 34C boobs and the dress fit like a glove! I will most likely pair it with a lace bandeau to help conceal the ladies a bit, but I am so excited to wear this dress! The color is vibrant, the material silky, and the boning spot on. The only downfall was a bit of a stitching malfunction as the zipper, but free people is sending a replacement ASAP which is awesome!
I was really excited for this dress to arrive and when i first put it on it was awesome, however as soon as I started moving around it started to ride up and bunch around my waist. Also the straps would not stay on my shoulders and the bust points out in weird directions. Overall it fits true to size and the material is really silky but it just was not practical at all, unless you don't mind pulling it down every two seconds and pulling the straps up repeatedly.
Beautiful, but not for me
This dress is really pretty, I was so excited to get it in the mail, but unfortunately it did not work for me. Going off of the other review, I thought the Small would be great as I am usually a 2-4 in free people sizes... not the case. It was slightly large in all the wrong places... I am small busted though so definitely was large in the chest, and waist/hip area. Also think it was not my color as it seems to have a slightly orange hue rather than just plain true red.
This dress should be renamed to the Sophia Loren
This dress is absolutely amazing. It does run small . I am a true size 4, but looking at the models measurements, I chose a medium, it fit perfectly except for the straps that I had taken in. The boning in the midriff is killer it gives the dress structure. The material looks like satin, but it isn't as heavy. The opening around the boobs was a little much, but nothing double sided tape couldn't fix. But then again my boobies are on the smaller side. Its sexy, classy , just awesome.
