FP New Romantics Painted Stripe Dress

Striped fit-n-flares style sleeveless mini dress with embroidered cutout trimming. Beaded detailing around armholes. Low "V"-back drop. Zips up lower back. Lined. Fabric has some light stretch. The delicately romantic and texture heavy New Romantics collection was inspired by the dream-worthy beach views and magically hidden coves of Sardinia, Italy.

Awkward Fit

"I have been eyeing this dress and finally got it when it went on sale. The dress itself is beautiful in person. Its a heavier fabric and the beading around the arm holes is so cute. The quality of the dress is just amazing. However, the fit is another story. The arm holes are really big... if you have a larger chest, expect to be showing some side boob. Also, the straps are just huge. Usually I never have a problem with that, but they just kept falling almost off my shoulders. I'm a 36D and there is still some extra room in the chest area. I think, the straps/armhole is my only issue. I folded the straps and put a clip on them to see what it would look like if they were shorter. Once I did that the dress looked just like it does on the model. I'm just trying to decide if its worth taking the straps in or just returning it. Besides that, the dress is absolutely gorgeous. For reference I am almost always a size 8 at FP and that's the size I ordered."

disappointing fit
7.7.2013
"I fell in love when i saw this dress on the website. I bought it in a 4 which is my usual size (i'm about 118 lbs, 5'7). When I tried it on it was too large, so i exchanged it for the size 2. Still too big. Exchanged again for a size 0. Too much room in the bust (and I'm a 34c, btw), too much side boob, and being a size 0 it was just too short.
The dress unfortunately just fits weird. Hard to believe the model in the photo is wearing a size 6. My guess is that the stylist used a lot of pins on the fabric to make it look so good in the photo."
