Thank you RTR stylist for the suggestion!!

Loved this dress! So comfortable. I would size down for your backup. I'm usually a size 6 and ended up wearing the 4.

Stylist Review!!!

This may be the softest dress on our site! This Free People number is perfect for the upcoming Spring months. This dress does have a ton of detail between the buttons on the front and the little tie on the waist. At 5'4, the Black Floral Midi Dress just hit me above the ankle. I would strongly suggest this for someone who is tall and looking for a Tea Length dress. Unlike typical Free People pieces, this dress runs very true to size or just a tiny bit large. Another great feature of this dress is you do not need to purchase any special undergarments for it!

Gorgeous, flowy, soft

I absolutely LOVE this dress. I'm considering buying it I love it so much. I love the weight of the dress and the cut that allows the dress to move with every step you take. It's a perfect dress for twirling which my daughter and I did a lot when I wore it. It's flattering and the button details were so pretty.

Fit true to size overall. I had to size up because the 4r was tight on my waist. I got a lot of compliments and it was perfect for my event!

Classy and GORGEOUS

Rented this for a formal rehearsal dinner. LOVED the dress so much that I'm debating buying it. I'm not usually a long dress person but this was an amazing choice. I felt like a princess and conservative around my boyfriend's family. The fabric was rich, the neckline adjusts with three individual clasps, and no need for a special bra.

Flirty & Feminine

The hooks at the front of the dress were a lifesaver - would have felt like too much cleavage for work. Great fit - lots of compliments. Would definitely rent this again.

Great dress if you're tall

Loved this midi dress, was perfect for a chilly spring day because the fabric is a heavier weight. I wore with ankle booties and was comfy in this dress all day. I do think it ran a bit small in the natural waist so if you have a wider waist I would size up. I'm 5'10 and this was the perfect length so shorter girls beware this dress may be too much fabric for you (or turn into a maxi)

Easy & Pretty

I wore this dress to work and paired it with a cream cardigan and jimmy choo nude wedges. It was comfortable and easy professional wear. I will probably rent this again over the course of the season,

Pretty dress, odd fit

The capped sleeves didn't fit right, and as others mentioned, the v-cut is VERY low. I wanted to like it, but I think for broad shoulder gals (me!) the capped sleeves are tough.

Perfect dress to twirl!

I rented this dress for a getaway weekend with my husband. Spent the day walking around the Monterey bay aquarium. I had my #instagramhusband take some pics of me twirling! I would love to buy this dress!

Good everyday dress

Soft fabric. Pretty feminine dress with full skirt. This is a heavy/bulky dress so don't order it to pack on vacation. Sizing: I originally ordered this dress in a size 6 but the fitted waist was too small for me. I am thick waisted. So I went up a size to an 8, which zipped up but was still on the tight side at the waist. The 8 top was cut low on me so I had to wear something under it for work...would be fine without when not at work.

Comfortable and flowy

I really liked this dress. It has a side zipper though which I found hard to zip on my own. I had to get a friend to zip it for me. A bit low cut too, had to wear a Cami under it. Great for every day wear.

Super comfortable and can be dressed up or down!

I wore this to my sister's graduation and loved it! The fabric is heavier than you would expect and probably wouldn't be great on a hot day, but for a mild spring day it was perfect. It definitely runs large and I'd recommend sizing down to avoid drowning in fabric. The neckline is low but if that's an issue, then a camisole underneath looks fine! The buttons going up the back of the dress are also a great detail and the skirt is so much fun to walk in. The only negative is that the side zipper has a tendency to get caught near the belt and you might need some help getting it up. Overall this is a fun dress that can definitely be dressed up or down!

Dress

On a petite frame, this dress hits the ankle which makes it versatile and heels was not necessary. The material is a bit heavier then the usual maxi dresses but still flowed when walking. The cut is a little low, still comfortable enough to wear without a tank underneath but I chose to wear a tank. Without a tank, the buttons in the back and hook closure in the front gives it a little sexy detail.

Wore this for a bridal shower at a vineyard. Fit the event perfectly.

Such a lovely, flowy dress. I felt really comfortable and would definitely rent this again! The hooks/buttons in the front and back don't close it up completely, there are little gaps in between. I wore a black strapless lace bra underneath to cover everything and that worked great. The smallest part of the dress is right under the bust and is not stretchy at all, so if you have a wider ribcage you might want to size up. I'd recommend this dress for sure!

Looks amazing on!

This dress. Where to start? It's heavy. Don't wear this on a super hot day like I did! Despite the weight, it flows really nicely. And because of the thickness of the dress, it's super flattering! The buttons on the back are a b**** to do, I recommend doing them before you put on the dress if you can still get it on. The front is pretty low, and has little latch thingies holding it together. I was concerned at first, but they stayed done all day at work. I don't have much up top, so it was appropriate for my office, but may not be for those with larger breasts. I tied the string in the middle around my waist and then in the back to give it a little more excitement. I'm 6' tall and this went to mid calf on me. Would prob be maxi length on shorter ladies. Overall, wouldn't rent again but I liked it for work today!

Great dress. Heavy fabric.

Loved the dress. The fabric is pretty heavy. So I wouldn't recommend for a hot summer day. On the plus side- I didn't have to worry about it blowing up in the wind.

Great, well made dress!

I loved this dress, though the front snaps us and is pretty revealing! I got this to wear to my brother's graduation but felt it was a bit inappropriate so wore to a party with friends instead. Cannot wear a bra. Fitted in waist.

Fun and feminine

I liked this dress and it was great for my occasion. Eye hole hook on my dress was missing so had to fasten with safety pin. There is something funny about the ruffles but I still really liked the dress.

Loved this dress!! I received so many compliments on it

I was in between sizes, the 4 was a little tight around the waist while sitting, but the size 6 was way to big through the shoulders and bust area. The length of the dress on was ankle length (short girl problems), but it was fine with the pair of heels I was wearing. This was such a flattering dress, something I will probably rent again!

Heavy! Definitely more weight than your average summer maxi. Hooks in front were very convenient for nursing.

Great dress for everyday!

I am only 5ft so always worried about length. While this is supposed to be on shorter side this was the perfect floor length for my height. Also fit my large bust which is always nice! Would not reccomend wearing this on a super hot day, I did and it was too HOT. The dress is very heavy.

Perfect!

I LOVED this dress. It was very heavy on the bottom, but I like a full bottom bit a bit of flair. The chest area was a tad low, and I tried to pin it at work, but it didn't work. There's not a lot of cleavage, but for work I thought it was a little low. Overall, this was a great dress... simple, classy, and tons of compliments. It hit my ankles, but all Free People clothing is long on me. (I'm 5'4).

Thicker fabric so is perfect for 80 degree weather - any hotter and it might feel a little stuffy. Great pattern and farmhouse feel. Everyone loved it!

I couldn't wear the dress because it was too small. The side zipper wouldn't zip up across the chest. It's a pretty dress, but SIZE UP!

Wore this to my future daughter in law's bridal shower. Outdoor rooftop party in Seattle.

I am 5-5 and the dress was the perfect length with wedges. Fabric is heavy, for a breezy rooftop party, I didn't feel like it was going to blow away :) Dress traveled well, just a quick touch up with iron to look good. Received lots of compliments. My only issue was top eye/hook was broken, I had to rustle up a safety pin.

Beautiful Spring/Fall date night dress

Loved the look of this dress but had to wear it with a camisole because the V cut is very low. Skirt material is heavier than I expected, but maintains a nice shape. Pretty hook closure detail in front and buttons in back. High quality fabric. Flattering to any shape.

Comes Undone - Wear A Cami

I rented this for a bridal shower party because it was cute but still a little conservative...but the hook and eye clasps on the front are only a little bit helpful in keeping the dress shut. As a matter of fact, the top one kept coming undone and showing off my boring nude bra to anyone I was speaking to. I wasn't out there doing acrobatics in the dress or anything, it would just pop undone while I was talking to someone or writing something down. I was exceptionally self-conscious in it all day, but it was very pretty and almost every time I saw someone they said it was beautiful. So 4/5 stars because it's still wearable if you put a cami underneath.

Diagonal seams on the skirt are a nice detail

Great details. Low cut. Not as bump-friendly as it looks because of tight empire waist seam. Does emphasize the bump! Fine for 4 months pregnant.

Got a bunch of complements in this dress! LOVED IT! It was super fun and perfect for summer everyday wear. Material is a little heavy but it didn't bother me. Buttons are hard to button in the back though! Definitely need someone to help you out to get it on. Would definitely rent this again!

Conservative with a fun print

I need a conservative dress for a holy site in Israel but one that would be cool enough to wear in very hot weather. This dress is very heavy and you need a black tank top with it for proper classy coverage. With that in mind, I think it's a high quality dress! Great for a winery perhaps!
