Beautiful dress but huge

This dress caught my eye because i loved the silhouette but when it arrived I knew it would be huge. The black neck tie shown in the photo was not included, I even searched in the bag for it, very misleading. I'm 5'10 and I even had to lift this dress up when i walked up the stairs. I got many compliments but If youre under 5'8, i would size down or pass on by because its too much fabric on one dress.

Runs Big but Flows Beautifully

I normally wear a size 6 and Mediums fit perfect but I should have ordered a small. It was so big on me that i had fi wear a belt to define my waist. Other than the size, the dress was great.

Effortless!

Wore this to my parents annual Christmas party and got compliments from everyone i spoke to! It was comfortable and easy to wear. I'm 5'9 and wore moccasin boots and you can see it grazed the ground. Rent it!

Cute design and flattering fit

The dress has a ton of fabric and it hangs so well. Its meant to be big on and surprisngly has a flattering fit. Its a little heavy but very comfortable.

Too long for petite ladies

The dress was really cute, but even with my highest heels i would not be able to walk with this dress on.

Flowing and comfortable!

Love the dress, style and fit. Unfortunately it was sent with a broken button and a missing button. I wore a strappy bralette and it worked out ok. I would have kept it longer and worn again of it wasnt damaged. I will rent again! Customer service was great about it and offered solutions.

Beautiful dress- too long though

I am 5 ft 6inches the MR was WAY too long for me and with the high waist of this dress it could not be belted. I woikd say it was 5 inches too long with flats. Beautiful dress though I loved the way it flowed when I walked

Stevie Nicks meets Laura Ingalls Wilder...

...because with this dress, it is totally possible. I felt like a bohemian princess in this dress, and thats saying a lot because I'm 31 weeks pregnant. This was a great flowy dress to minimize the bump and would be stunning on a tall non-pregnant frame. I wore my prepregnancy size XS (normally a zero) and there was still room, so in typical FP fashion, go ahead and size down unless you are insanely busty (lucky!) or broad-shouldered. You need to be tall or rock heels to make this one work - it is long - but it is gorgeous. Love the layered sleeves, too - I ALMOST purchased it!

Not for slimmer girls with D or larger

I have a small waist and wear D bra. I looked pregnant. If you have larger breasts, I would skip this dress!!

Comfy chic day dress

This dress was really long ans a little large but i liked the comfy drapey style and paired with 5" platform wedges, it was just barely a workable length on my short legs. (Im 5' 1.5" with short legs). It was fun to wear and i got tons of compliments! Wore to work, dressed down for a weekend lunch ans dressed up for a girls bught. Lays well, well made. Free People runs large, but luckily i was able to make this one work. Rented on unlimited and will probably keep for another week!

So Many Compliments!!!

I have never received so many compliments on an outfit like i did while wearing this dress. I paired it with a cognac leather belt and open toed 3 inch sandals. Im 5'2 and this dress is really long but with the heels on it was just fine.

Wore this dress four times over the month

This dress fits pretty on par with the Free People brand. Im a pretty true medium/6, and i always wear a small in FP. I will say, that the button holes were quite stretched out, so it would bust open every few hours (36D bust). Also- I could only wear it with flats. I wore this dress four times and really got the bang for my buck. I thought about keeping it, but onto the next!

Cute and comfy boho

This dress was cute and comfy, but having to add 4" heels made it less so. Great for work or bring on a cool day.

Easy to get lost in

There is a whole lot of dress here. I tried to keep some buttons undone to make a neckline, but the one I received was quite worn so then all the buttons came undone. I'm pretty straight and narrow, so perhaps if I had more of a figure this would have felt less sack-like.

Great Maternity Dress!

I wore this dress at 28 weeks pregnant to a friend's Indian wedding event. It fit snug in the chest (had to reinforce with safety pins) but flowed in the arms, waist and through the legs. Perfect as a maternity dress but would definitely also wear post baby!

The flow of the dress, fun pattern and bell sleeves were a hit!!

Loved everything about this dress. I planned to wear it with wedges but it was too short, it was a perfect length with flats just skimming the ground (5'7" myself!). Lots of compliments!!!! Felt chic and hippie all at once, love it.

Pretty dress for pregnant date night

Loved the style and print and it had plenty of room for my third trimester belly...but the chest was tight and the buttons are pretty tiny so it kept popping open! Would have loved to keep this one and wear to work but the chest just didn't work for me.

Good looking and comfortable dress

I loved this dress. The fit is so flattering and fun and it's very comfortable. I wore it for a night out with friends and got a ton of compliments. My only issue is one of the buttons on my chest kept coming undone all night. Other than that, highly recommend.

Many compliments

I chose to wear this dress for a baptism. It could be worn casual as well. I received so many compliments. The bell sleeves were a nice touch. The waist is fitting so it's a little flattering to your figure. I have a small frame (5'2", 120lbs) and it still felt like so much material. Dress was still loose on me. I wore 2 inch heels and it barely hit the floor, but had to pick up the dress when I walked. Overall, I loved it. If you're going for that boho look, this is definitely the dress.

Pretty dress, lots of volume

This is a pretty dress and very comfortable. I am on the shorter side and was worried it would be too long but it worked with flat boots. It is very voluminous... not slimming at all. But it was comfortable and flowy and earned some compliments!

Loved this

Worn in winter and still comfortable and relatively warm for me at 6m pregnant. I'm 5'2" so worked better with a small heel as the dress is quite long and would drag if I was in a very flat shoe.

I wore this to church and had rave reviews. I'm thinking of buying it.

It fit great. Button in bust area (I'm a DD) was lose so I used a couple pins to keep everything in place. It looks great but toned down a bit too, but I wanted a more conservative look. Really loved this one!

Quality piece!!

Beautiful print, thick fabric. Wanted to wear for shower, ended up wearing for church. Flowey fit, perfect for belly bump, with no pull at the waist. Received tons of compliments, I'd for sure recommend for your shower or a family day out, my fave for sure!! May need to pin chest buttons , but couldn't see a difference. It works buttoned up, or halfway up for a nice neckline.

Amazingly comfortable dress!

The print and colors were amazing. I wore during the winter in Portland, so not exactly weather appropriate, but with a big oversized jacket and boots it was perfectly boho and super comfortable. Would recommend for sure!

Perfect dress for a casual Saturday

Loved wearing this to brunch and a museum. Really fun and pretty flattering but no definition in the waist at all, so it comes across big there, in addition to just being over-sized generally. Lots of fabric -- I'm 5'9 and even with 3 inch boots, I had to pick the dress walking up on stairs, etc.

This was a chic brunch outfit.

I LOVE this dress. It does run very large, but was adorable with an added belt. This is a perfect choice for a day-to-night event and is stylish while being understated. Highly recommend!

Fancy hippie chic!

The dress runs a little large or it did for me. It was lovely! The sleeves are dramatic, the bottom tiered skirt of the dress is flow-y and theatrical, but overall, it is a beautiful dress. I received so many compliments.

Better online than in person

I wanted to love this, but the material and fit weren't great. I was hoping for a stretchy fabric that hugged the body a bit more. Also, the buttons kept coming undone, so I was constantly having to check/ re-button.

It's ok

The dress is not long enough for tall people. I am 5'9" and it hit me at the ankle. the buttons also gab at the bust.
