Beautiful & Classy
I wanted something understated, but elegant to wear during the holiday season that wasn't too fussy. This dress turned out to be the perfect solution. It's very comfortable while being subtly sexy. The details like the sweetheart neckline, lace cap sleeves, modest lace back and tiered skirt really make this dress stand out from hundreds of similar styles. Also, the length was perfect - it hit well above my knees without being inappropriate. I am usually a size 0 in Free People, but had to go up to a 2 to even zip the top part up. I am a 34A, so I would guess that girls with larger chests might have similar experiences. I was hesitant to spend this much money on such a simple dress, but I've worn it so many times already that it's worth it. I'd totally recommend!

Beautiful but delicate
Like other reviewers, I found this dress to run a little bigger. I'm 5', 110lbs and found that the XS was the best fit. The issues that I have about this dress, although beautiful on and on the hanger, is that the top and sleeves wrinkle almost immediately when you move you arms or sit down. I got the white version and thought that the extreme wrinkling kind of detracted from the overall effect, the wrinkles are impossible to hide. The other thing I noticed was that the lace was incredibly delicate. At the end of the first night that I wore it, I noticed some parts of the lace (thin strings that are part of the pattern) had completely broken. Not necessarily noticeable from far away, but a bit of a disappointment. I'll be sure to be more careful when I wear it out again.
