Comfortable and cute!

This dress was great for summer time/maternity wear. I'm 8 months pregnant and very few cute summer dresses still fit. This was a total win!

Am I missing something?

I so wanted to like this dress as it looked cute and comfortable on the model. However, when I put it on, while from the waist down it fit perfectly, it covered about half my chest. Was I supposed to wear something else with it? Am I missing something? While I'm all for a respectable amount of side boob, this was more like just covering my nipples. I even turned it around thinking I had put it on backwards but no. I'm not sure how even a smaller chested person could wear this (I'm a 34 C/D). What a bummer!

Comfy summer dress

Loved this dress. Fun print. Flowy and comfy. Great for summer. It is a little revealing though. Luckily i have a very small bust (34 B) and was able to wear this dress w/o a bra. Bustier ladies would have some side boob showing if they did this. A bando would solve that if it's an issue for you. Really fun look.

Wanted to love it, but...

I loved this dress in the model pic and have seen it on fashion bloggers, but trying it on I was so disappointed. The sides cut in so much you show half your boobs. Having a smaller chest (B cup) I thought it could work but every time I moved I was scared something would slip out. I returned it and tried another style.

Side Boob Nightmare

The side boob on this dress is EXCESSIVE. I love the dress, especially the buttons and detail on the back, but I had to wear a tank top underneath to prevent a busty situation.

Perfect day dress

As all other reviewers mentioned, the top part of the dress is skimpy but easily fixed with a little fashion tape. The pockets are a nice add and I loved the fabric and the dress is lined which adds an elevated feel.

Strange sizing

I've tried this dress on before in store in a size medium and it was just too large so I opted for the small. The small was still to large in the waist area ( I was swimming in it). However the cut on the breast is more than an acceptable amount of side boob, unless you have some heavy duty fashion tape. I love the overall cut but just not good for my body!

Unwearable

I should have paid closer attention to the other reviews but the good star rating convinced me to rent. The torso of the dress barely covers nipple to nipple. I cannot imagine what kind of body this would possibly fit on unless you have the narrowest chest of all time. Returned this without wearing, didn't even attempt to jimmy it with all the fashion tape in the world.

Fun and comfortable!

Loose fit; probably could have sized down but still looked flattering; sides are cut deep, which added a feminine touch to what could be a frumpy style; I wore a jean jacket with it most of the night anyway! Loved the polka dot print and the pockets!!

Cute but not the right fit.

Too loose and too much fabric. Up top no matter what bra I wore you were going to see it. Strapless or not.

Recommend sizing down

Normally I am a small in free people dresses, but due to the unique cut of the top (which I love the look of) I would recommend sizing down.

I couldn't wear it without a jacket to cover the bust. I'm small-chested, but this barely fit!

I'm only a 34B, but the medium came in so much that it barely covered my chest. I think it's been washed too many times.

Stylist Review

I love this classic dress by Free People! Running true to size with lots of stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going up for your back up if you're unsure. This style is loose, stretchy and comfortable. (fabric moves and lightly touches your body). It works for all cup sizes and you can wear a standard bra with this dress. At 5’6”, the length almost hit the floor. The pattern on the dress is timeless as polka dots will always be in. Pair with nude heels or sandals and fun earrings to complete your outfit!
