Style: 37041068 Colour:
Bodycon mini dress with cold shoulder and strappy back accent. Featuring a playful print and long sleeves. Unlined.
Beautiful print and relatively thick fabric for a bodycon, which is nice (may be able to get away with no bra). I felt it was true to size (medium for 5'7" and 145 lbs, usually dress size 4-6) and very flattering. [Boyfriend: I agree!!] Sometimes Free People dresses can be a little short for me, but this dress was perfect (short and sexy but I don't feel like I need to keep adjusting it to stay covered). The sleeves are quite long (which was good for me) but I imagine they might be too long for some. Would highly recommend!
Pretty purple color, flattering fit
I really like FP's bodycon items; they're usually form-fitting but not too tight and this are forgiving in some perhaps problem areas. I tried the purple color on in my local FP and was pleasantly surprised. the color is very pretty, and the length was a mini but not scandalously short length on my 5'7" frame. It's a great fall color and I think it'd look great with either heels or tall boots. I saw the blue in the store, too. Both colors are more muted in person than they are online. I didn't purchase because I don't like cold shoulder straps, as they are not flattering on my frame, with broader shoulders and narrower hips. I think it would look awesome on a more hourglass shape. For reference, I tried on my usual XS (34 b-c, 25-26, 34), and the fit was perfect--sexy and fitted but not skin-tight and awkward.
