Easy to wear and great quality! It can look a bit matronly, but I rolled up the sleeves and accessorized to keep it younger (I'm 33).
Great dress I’ve already written a review for this dress and have now owned it about two years. It’s still a great dress and it’s held up amazingly well, still beautiful after two years of wear. I am currently 37 weeks pregnant and this is the first pregnancy I’ve spent in the dress having purchased it postpartum. I wanted to update my review with my thoughts on it now that I’ve spent a pregnancy in it. The fit is a bit more of a struggle pregnant. The bust (I bought a medium, 34F) is really too small. The buttons gap and pull a lot. Also I think the length is great most of the time, but with a 9 month bump it’s really too short in the front. I can’t wear any of my slips or even a pair of shorts under it without them showing. It’s especially a problem chasing my active toddler around. The linen material is great for said chase though! I’m not worried about him potentially ruining my dress by being a messy boy. I still give it 5 stars, and own it in two colors. If I ordered again or in their other similar short sleeve style, I think I would size up.
Great dress, not suitable for med/ large chest They recommend going with your normal size, but the chest area is so snug. Snug for a normal dress, but ESPECIALLY snug for a maternity dress. Definitely size up 1-2 sizes, as your pregnancy chest is sure to outgrow this dress. Other than the off sizing, the dress is great. Very pretty. Will be re-ordering in a different size.
Worth it. I got this dress in my second trimester as a birthday present when most of my closet was not fitting me anymore. I wore it through most of my third trimester and it has been my absolute go-to outfit postpartum (I wear it almost every day). I am so grateful to have something that fits me, makes me feel good about myself while I wear it even just around the house, and is so well-designed for easy breastfeeding. I love that I can also wear this when I go back to work. I dislike buying clothing that only lasts for one season/phase in life --- I so appreciate that Emme made a dress that is versatile and meets so many needs. <3
Beautiful dress I received this dress as a Mother's Day gift from my husband. It's extremely comfortable in the 90 degree, humid weather we've been having lately. I'm at 21 weeks and there's still plenty of room to grow. It looked great when I was barely showing, too! Another reviewer suggested sizing up, but so far I'm very happy with the size I normally wore pre-pregnancy.
Lovely dress! I've always wanted a linen dress, so with my pregnancy, I decided to treat myself with this Faye Dress because it looked so cute online. The blue looks even better in person, the cut is very elegant, and the material and fit is all very comfortable. I honestly couldn't be happier to have a piece that I'm sure will take me throughout my pregnancy and afterwards. Right now I'm in my 2nd trimester, and wearing this dress really makes me feel confident with my changing body and it actually feels like self-care and a celebration (rather than just getting by with your typical cheaply-made maternity wear that fits weirdly). I'm pretty small, 5'3" and pre-pregnancy I usually wear an XS for most brands or a 0, and so far the XS fits just right. I have a good feeling I'll still be able to comfortably wear this dress into my 3rd trimester, and definitely a piece I'd love to wear afterwards too!
Lovely Faye dress—size up! I received this dress as a gift, and I immediately washed it (cold, gentle) and tried it on. It fits perfectly now (at 16 weeks pregnant), and I'm really glad I requested the L size. I usually wear M but as this was a maternity item and I hope to wear it while breastfeeding as well, I wanted more ease. I'm not sure I'll be able to wear this after my milk comes in, it may be too tight (2nd pregnancy), but I'm really going to enjoy wearing this through my pregnancy and beyond. A versatile, charming dress with a flattering neckline. After washing some stitching had come undone at one of the sleeve hems, it was easily fixed with a quick iron and run through my sewing machine.
Great dress, neat company I love that this company is committed to ethical processes from fabric to manufacturing, and that it produces classic and wearable designs for all stages of motherhood! Great customer service, too. The color of the dress is beautiful, and I love the length and design. It's very flattering and wearable--to work, on dates, around the house. I really like it. My pre-pregnant self would've fit an S, but my boobs have grown significantly, and I needed an L which I'm really pleased with--the shoulders fit just right. There are just few little things that I'd love to see improved in later versions--the pockets would lay flatter if they were in a different material, and that would improve the look, I think. More importantly, the larger sizes could really benefit from bust darts. My former svelte self would've looked fine in an S without them, but my extremely busty pregnant self would be better fit with darts, and I expect other women wearing an L and above would also benefit. Finally, I agree with the review about seam allowance on the hem--a nice fat hem would give us taller people a little extendability if necessary, but also I think the skirt would hang even better with a larger hem.
Perfect dress I love everything about this dress. It’s a beautiful color, the sleeves and length make it practical for year-round wear, the linen is sturdy but breathable and it keeps getting softer! I bought this dress postpartum because I was sick of spending as little money as possible on cheap maternity/nursing clothes that made me feel fat and ugly because it’s a short season of life and I just needed to get by. Not so with this dress! I’m so excited that it can go with me through all the transitions of any future pregnancies. A worthy investment for sure. It’s been absolutely wonderful so far. I bought it in the green too. And yay pockets!! I can carry my keys and phone and my baby! I can’t say enough about how awesome the customer service as been either. I’m so excited to see and purchase what these ladies come up with next!
beautiful! I love, love the color; the fabric feels high-quality; and the shape looks great even without a bump! The one thing I would ask for is a larger seam allowance... I'm 5'5"-ish and the skirt hits mid-knee or higher, and I'm concerned that a future-bump might put the hemline higher than I want it. If there were an extra inch or so of fabric inside so that it could be let out, that would be great (and might make it an option for taller people, too). Sizing is perfect: I typically wear a 0, and the XS fits great!
Gorgeous! This dress is beyond beautiful. I'm in my second trimester and when worn without the sash, it really conceals the bump, and it's super cute with the the sash. I bought it hoping I could nurse with it but it seems like that will be challenging as the button placket makes it awkward even at this point to access my boobs. Another button would help.
The perfect dress! This dress is so flattering and simple! It is very high quality and perfect for so many seasons of life and weather too. I can’t wait to buy more of their pieces! This is such a practical and beautiful brand.
Love the color! I’m expecting baby #4 and have always struggled finding a comfortable AND stylish dress. This dress is definitely both of these things. I love the color and the fit and am excited to wear this for the rest of my last trimester and post-partum. Beautiful dress!
Beautiful dress, excellent quality! In love with my new Faye dress! Not only is it gorgeous (even more so in real life btw), but it’s so versatile and functional! I appreciate that so much as a mom. This is a perfect staple piece and I’m so excited to have it through the Fall and Winter too! Such a dream. Thanks for designing such mom-friendly pieces!!
The Perfect Dress This was my first Emme purchase. I fell in love with the shade of blue and it’s even prettier in person. I also love that it is made of easy care linen. I’ve washed it half a dozen times already (yes, I wear it that often) and washing it on cold and tumble drying it on low gives perfect results. I love the width and heft of the sash. It totally stays put when I wear it. I also love that there are no loops for the sash so the dress still looks great when I don’t want to use it. The crazy thing is I’m not even pregnant and this is the favorite dress in my closet.
Just buy it! I love this dress. The fit is unbelievable, it is so flattering. I'm on my second pregnancy and I've never felt so good in maternity clothing. I've washed it multiple times and the way it sits across my shoulders and chest is still perfect.
