This dress was so fun and I got a ton of compliments on it. The colors and pattern are beautiful!
It is on the shorter is but if you're only 5'3 like me even with heels it is definitely long enough to look appropriate and not have to worry about it all night. The fabric is very thick which can be kinda hot but I liked how I didn't have to worry about it being see through. It does run a little bit on the larger size so if you are debating between to sizes I would go down a size unless you need a larger size for the length. Overall 10/10 would recommend!!

Pretty and comfortable!
I normally wear a size 8 in dresses and the small was still semi loose on me! Material is great quality. Definitely on the short side. I love that I could just wear a racerback bra with it and it didn't show at all!

Really great dress for a party. The fabric is on the heavier side so it's more of a fall dress.
The XS fit me like a glove. I loved the color, length and fabric. I would love to wear this again.

Easter Casual!
The most comfortable, relaxed dress with a flirty twist! It was a stretchy cotton material - very soft and a little thick. I couldn't tell if it ran large or was meant to be looser - the S was confortable and just short enough - pair it with flats or scrappy sandals.

Cute - but short and runs large
Very cute, runs large. I wore a small and am usually a true medium. Also currently 5 months pregnant and small still fit the best. Definitely very short in the back, especially if you have a butt. But overall it was cute and comfortable.

Cute Birthday Dress
The fit and length on this dress is TTS. The fabric was a bit heavier/thicker than it thought, but it was fine for a late summer evening. The dry cleaning smell really sits so take out of the bag and air out once you get it. The fit looks like it would be a swing style dress, but there's actually a (slightly unflattering) horizontal seam at the hip. It can make the fit look dowdy. Overall, I liked the dress, but I wouldn't rent it again.

Super cute but it is SHORT!
Beautiful color and bump friendly. But I am just shy of 5 feet and it was barely covering my bottom. Must wear with leggings if any taller! It's a stretchy material that looks like it's pilling but it's just the fabric design. Love the color.

Loved it
I always love free people dresses and this one is no exception to the rule. The color was perfect for me, being 5 foot I always worry about how short the dresses are this one was perfect just above my knee it was very flattering and I can't tell you how many compliments I got on this. I apologize for not taking better photos but I don't generally like to take photos of myself so this is good as I can get.

Anniversary Dress
The dress was really comfortable, super soft, but thicker fabric. I could have worn the small, but the arm holes were a little larger than I liked.

Fun & funky dress for Easter festivities!
I wore this purple jewel-toned dress for Easter Sunday at my parents' house and was thankful for an unseasonably warm Spring day. The material is thick and comfortable, but the length was lacking. I ordered both the Small and X-Small hoping to get more length with the Small, but they ended up being the same length so I stuck with XS. I wore it with a regular bra. I had plenty of room around both my body and bust, I definitely wished it was a bit more form-fitting. I wore it in the Spring with plain black flats, but it would definitely be gorgeous for the Fall as well, with an over-the-knee boot to cover up some of the ample leg shown.

Great casual dress
While this dress is gorgeous, it runs quite large. I am typically a size 8 with a 36DD chest and it was still hanging off of me. I should have gotten the small but my backup was large! It was fine but it didn't give me any shape. The material is very thick as well so I wouldn't recommend for a very hot day.

Beautiful pattern
The dress was beautiful up close and I loved the color scheme but the dress ran large. I ended up wearing a coverup because the dress was larger in the bust area and the "arm holes" hung open and exposed the sides of my bra. Probably better for someone with a larger bust.

This dress is HUGE! I could have been 8 months pregnant and still fit in it. Sadly I had to ship it back without wearing it.

This dress was perfect for my banquet. It does run a little shorter but it wasn't close to where I would be uncomfortable. Got lots of compliments! Would totally buy if I could.

60s Retro Style Throwback Dress
If you want a cute, casual, short dress with great color, this is your dress. It did look a little washed and worn, but not too bad. It was chilly, so I wore tights, but it looked cute without. It is not fitted, at all. Sort of tight on the neck when I sat down, but not bad. Slightly flared out under the arm pit. I wore a racer back bra. I got lots of compliments because it is a little different and the color really pops! Again, great RTR service.

Perfect for cold weather
Wore this for a baby shower and paired it with tights because it was again, a cold day in NYC. It flowed nicely, the dress seemed darker in person though than in pictures.

Fun pattern & style!
I'm small chested and petite, so yes, the dress is definitely short, but because I'm petite, I was able to rock it without tights or leggings. It did run looser than I thought it would in the chest and waist area, but it didn't take away from the overall fit. If you are tall, this will be extremely short! I went minimal on the accessories because of the high neck and bright pattern, but got tons of compliments. Loved it!

Groovy 60's Style
The cut and pattern of this dress caught my eye awhile back. Being on the Unlimited program, and now that the weather is warmer I figured it was the right time to rent it. When it arrived I noticed that the fabric was thicker than I was expecting. Another surprise was the cut. From the picture of the model, I thought the dress would have more of a defined natural waist. This has a loose, open waist. Not like a muu muu, but not like a sheath. Either way, you can have a big meal and not have to worry. The colors are fun and the length worked nicely for my 5'1" stature. Rent this dress to show off your shoulders!

Sexy in a fun, unexpected way!
I loved this dress! It is such a fun, unique, and beautiful dress. It is definitely very short, but it's quite modest in all other aspects so I didn't mind showing some leg. I wore little bike shorts underneath and felt fine--just was careful not to bend over too far! Pros: thick, high quality fabric, flattering cut, can wear a regular (racerback or cross-back bra). Hoping I can rent this for another event in the future--I got compliments all night!

One of my favorites yet. Definitely short...probably too short for work without really dark tights but felt so cute and sassy. I wore with a little black jacket.

Super cute and very comfortable!
I was really hesitant to order this dress, based on the reviews indicating that it's large in the waist. However, it looks really cute this way ... the cut is very flattering. I wore black booties and they complemented the dress well. The material is very soft and thick, which was perfect for a December party. I got lots of compliments! Would order again.

Stylist Review!
I LOVE Free People! This dress is perfect for a "business casual" work setting with booties, a sweater and tights. Please excuse the bra straps, I was wearing a black sweater over the dress before the photo. Be sure to wear opaque tights, because even on my 5'4 frame, it could have been a little short. I am a tad bit busty, but this dress has a tiny bit of stretch and worked great.

Cute dress but nothing special
It was a cute dress for work. A bit short so I wore it with tights. Just an everyday dress! It also has some wool in it so even though its sleeveless I was pretty warm.

I've rented it twice!!
I love this dress. So much so I scoured the internet and found my own! It's colorful, flirty and very comfortable. It does have longer armholes and is a tad short but I wear a sports bra and boy shorts underneath and worry not. The material is thick so it's great for an afternoon event on a cooler day.

I could have worn the medium or the large for my event but there was not a ton of shape to the dress so I went with the large so I could belt it.

Cute, Different & Comfortable
I wore this on Christmas Day to my boyfriend's family gathering. It was so comfortable (like I was in my pjs all day) yet very stylish and cute. I'm 5'9" so it was a bit short, but I don't mind that. I wore it with black tights, black booties and a black long cardigan. I literally had it on for 10 or more hours and wasn't in any rush to take it off after eating two large meals. That said, it is obviously a bit baggy so if the look you're going for is to show off your figure (other than your legs), this probably isn't the dress for you. I'm curvy, but you couldn't tell in this one - it really just highlights your legs and shoulders.

Comfortable and great lines!
I rented this dress for a wedding in the fall - the material was thick enough that with a jacket I could be outside without being cold, but still very light. The colors are great -- not too flashy but really beautiful. I wore with black wedges and loved it! I am 5'3" and the length was perfect for me (and I stay way away from anything too short). You will love this dress!

I am 5'9, and this dress was too short to wear. A petite friend wore this dress and it looked amazing on her. Not a good look for taller girls.

Super cute and versatile!
Absolutely loved this dress. It has thick fabric and was a good length for my petite height. I am also very muscular on top, so I did not have problems with the armholes being too big/gaping. Can see that being a problem with non athletic shoulders/lats. Small fit me and still gave me a shape, which is good for someone hourglass shaped and petite. It can def be dressed up or down.
