love these!!
I vary between a 6.5 and 7 but usually find that I almost always buy 6.5 in any kind of sandal (you can get away with smaller fits in sandals in my opinion). I bought the 6 and find that it fits perfectly. It's on the border of being too small but I can just make it work. I definitely wouldn't want the 7 because I think smaller is always more flattering than even a little too big. I do have narrow feet though. This sandal is very narrow and I can't imagine anyone with wider feet wearing it, mine almost even go over the edges. In terms of appearance these are adorable. My housemate and coworkers loved them. They look expensive despite being rubber and they are incredibly comfortable. I'm definitely going to be ordering more of these! Color is exactly as appears and is the perfect neutral.

Stretches out, Just Meh
Usually FP seamless pieces run super tight and small. i was happy to see that this piece was not as tight as most, however, after a day of wear it stretches out and becomes loose especially on the straps (which is not good for bra cover). I always wear the XS/S and am a 32D in VS bras. This is just not that great of a tank. I was hoping to use it as a work staple and it's good to tuck under pants and skirts but it does roll up a little. Overall not that pleased, wouldn't buy more. I will note that it's not see-through though which is a win!

James Perse- the ever Shrinking
I'm 5'2, 105 pounds and always wear a 0 in JP. I got this in a 0 but I must say as of late JP has been running much smaller. There is still a decent amount of stretch in these pieces so I don't mind they are a little tighter-just harder to get on but look amazing once they are! Love the color-it's a very unique blue/gray. As with all these styles I love that you can adjust-make them shorter or longer with the ruching and lower or higher on the neck line (good for work to play transition). I can tell just like every other JP this is going to ride up but whatever-only happens when you walk. As usual massively over-priced but I got it on sale and I always use these as staple pieces that are super versatile. Worth it if you are used to JP. Comfort, class, style, just the right amount of sex appeal!

Love the Color
Bought the Fizz XS (I'm 5'2 105 pounds). I really like it. I got it at a steal for $10. It has some weird puckering on the straps in the back but that's fine. I tried to buy the violet but it sold out in my cart and messed up my order-lol. The fizz is full on neon yellow-like a highlighter. I happen to like this and it looks phenomenal with a tan. It's a good length- not too short or long. Overall very happy! Can be worn with a nude strapless bra and is not see through.

Fun!
About 5'2 105 pounds petite but athletic (bought XS). This is an adorable piece that I've gotten complemented on a few times. It's a nice fit but even on me is quite short in the front. I have a hard time seeing tall girls being able to wear this one. My only complaint is that it is not as bright as the picture. Also, mine seemed to have come slightly dirty and tinged-I liked it a lot so I kept it anyways. It looks perfect with a tan, white blazer and high heeled sandals or flats. Note that it is longer in the back and shorter in the front. Because of the short length if you are looking to belt this it will not work-goes way too short! If you're on the fence I'd buy it. It's a decent deal for the sale price.

Different than expected but still good
I'm about 5'2, 105 pounds petite but athletic and I bought the P. I will admit this is bordering on too small like other reviewers but I still would not have sized up to the S. The waist and shoulders are tighter than I'd like but still doable.The biggest surprise for me was the fabric-it's not as opaque and rich as I'd hoped. It's more like a heavy cotton feel and it attracts a lot of lint. It already had lint on it when I took it out of the package! Regardless this is a super classy, well-fitted classic LBD. I think it's perfect for corporate or interview and is a great transitional piece as well. For my height it hit me at the perfect length and I really love the asymmetrical hem. Hopefully there is no riding up but didn't seem like there would be. I got it at a good sale price but I would not have paid full for it. Overall I'm satisfied but not in love.

can't go without these!
I absolutely love these. I have four pairs and I have worn the tans ones down to death-lol. The color is really flattering on medium tone skin and looks great in the summer. It's an awesome neutral so it goes with everything too. I have spread the word about these to all of my friends/family-I love them that much! They are true to size but fit narrower feet best. I am most always a 7 and got these in a 7. They look like they were made for me!

good basic
I have this in black and primarily wear it as a dress and not a slip. I haven't had the riding up problem a lot of people talk about and I think that it really comes down to body shape with this dress regarding that. Free People clothing in general tends to work either completely for or against certain body types. I'm petite with curves, 5'1 100 pounds (wearing XS/S) and I find it works really well for me. This is a good staple, fabric is thick, smooth and comfortable. With the darker colors you can easily get away with it as a dress, especially if you are short. The price is great too!

Not as good as the sleveless version!!
I have this dress in the racerback version-much more flattering and true to size. I'm 5'1 about 100 pounds, athletic/curves (32D/25/33) and got the white in 0. At first I thought I'd never fit into it but once on it was completely fine. I think the 1 would end up being too much fabric as this is a ruched style. The ruching goes up the whole dress too, unlike the sleeveless design. The back is very see through and even with a tan bra you can see the straps very clearly. The rest is fine as it is double layered. Overall this dress is just alright, nothing special. In all honesty I'd probably send it back but won't due to living abroad. Go for the sleeveless version-it's far more flattering and SB is still selling it! Kudos to them for shipping internationally so quickly though-came at lightening speed!

BRIGHT!
These are way brighter in person, at least compared to my monitor. They are adorable. I prefer the color side to the blue reverse and probably will never wear them on that side (as usual with reversible styles). As for sizing the S fit me fine-I'm 5'1 102 pounds/46kgs or so and petite. I was worried about there not being an XS but these are totally fine without being too skimpy. Material seems sturdy and of good quality.
