Who did FP make this for?Not the average woman, that's for sure. Yes it's truly stunning and heart stopping. But Rediculously long, and will be difficult to hem. I'm normally a small, size 4, 34-28-36, but the small was a little too tight in waist. Medium fits better. My other issue is that the waist line falls in an awkward position - cutting right across the stomach region- so that's a little unflattering, but not unbearably so bc the velvet is soft and forgiving. Overall, a truly special bohemian stunner.

gorgeous dress, very longI received this Sunday. It is even more beautiful in person than in the pictures, but found it to be heavy as velvet tends to be. I bought a size small, fit true to size. I am 5'6"ish 7, 120 lbs, not much of a chest, fit was perfect. The length on me is about an inch too long, but once i have my boots on, it will be just touching the ground. I had a knee replacement some months ago so no heels for me.Its truely a gorgeous gown, very flowy, very comfy & wide enough to walk comfortably in. As mentioned in other review, it does run long. I would say that there are some areas to take the length up under the bodice, under the chest, or at the ruffle edge along the black border if you really hated it too long. (with the help of a very good seamstress)For me, it is perfect and will leave it the way it is. Well worth the money. Did i mention? It is so comfy...Go ahead, splurge. You won't be disappointed.

Gorgeous Gown - VERY LONG!I ordered this dress to wear to a holiday party. I am still on the fence about returning or keeping it. I will say that it is stunning in person. It is exactly as pictured. It runs completely true to size - not "Free People" sizing -which is generally very big. I ordered a Medium which I am normally, but small typically in FP clothing. The Medium was great on my bust, waist, etc. I am a 36C or 34D bra and my waist is about 26.5. My hips are about 32. I am 5'8" and 135lbs if that helps you. Additionally I would like to note that I am 5'8" and this dress has about 4 inches of fabric just sitting on the floor. I put on a super high pair of about 5" platforms (not that I would wear these shoes with this dress) and the dress just hit the floor. This is my issue with this dress. If you are short you cannot wear it. My dilemma is that it is a velvet dress and I think hemming it might take away from the details at the bottom and/or make the entire cut look off then. I cannot bring myself to wear platforms with this type of boho style gown - just wouldn't look right. If you are super tall - this dress is AMAZING. I also am not sure I'd feel justified spending more money hemming a dress that was already 300 dollars. That's my review! :)
