Flattering fit

"I love this dress and thought it was so pretty from the first time I saw it on the FP video, released with their catalog. I also was in the midst of planning a trip to Rio, so I thought it was perfect! It was sold out online in my normal size. I just happened to see a returned one at a FP store that was a size larger, but I tried it on anyways. I should have known that the dress ran small (it says the model is wearing a size 6...). The size I got is still a bit tight around the rib cage despite being a size-two sizes larger than my normal size, but it is still very flattering. I have a normal sized chest and it fits perfectly. I love the ruffle detailing and paired it with a chunky necklace, like styled in the catalog. I can't wait to wear this out for a special event, just go up a size!"

"It just arrived. It's a fun, flarey and festive dress. Has enough volume and weight. I am 5'4 and 34B, it's a bit long but not too much. I can trim off the bottom ends... But it's a ted tight around the side rib cage area. In numbers i am a size 4 fp, and xs fp, oddly for this dress, the zipper will not close all the way. I am not broad or wide shouldered and I feel a size 6 will be baggy for me. I am not sure how ill work this out. It's not like I can suck in my ribs cage to fit into the dress. It's manageable, but I am afraid of breaking the zip while I am out or going my way when I am wearin the dress. The dress is beautiful. I may end up keeping the dress... You can were it anywhere and dress it up or down.. I have taken a few pictures, I haven't closed the side zip all the way but I have somehow managed to hold the zip close with my hand. I love the dress, don't feel like returning it!"

"I love this dress. It is definitely a bit long with flats so I would recommend heels. (I am 5"2 and I ordered a size 0) I wore it to the SF farmer's market and received several compliments throughout the day. I love the way the ruffles moved in the wind. I find that the in-studio photo does not do the dress justice. It's much more attractive. <3."

"the color is ivory..a bit off white..bottom part is see through but the dress is lined with a short slip underneath. i ordered a size 6. i am 5'8 with wide rib cage (34B) and wide shoulder. it's pretty tight around the rib cage but the dress is long (quarter of an inch of the tip of the dress is grazing the floor) i think if i go up a size it would be too long and front chest region would be too low. don't know if i want to keep it yet. i love the feel of it but it's also a lot of fabric to be carried around."
