5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning dress. 17 May 2013
Colour Name:Black Rose| Size Name:22|Verified Purchase
I have a couple of weddings to go to later this year, which, as something of a tomboy threw me into a bit of a panic. You see, normally for a smart occasion I would wear smart trousers, but that just didn't sound appropriate for a summer wedding. Whilst I did own several skirts, they were all either too short, too casual, or too 'workwear' to be suitable.

I took to amazon, one of my favourite websites, for inspiration. I wanted something i would wear more than once, something that was 'alternative' enough to suit my desire for individuality without being too off the wall, something kooky but still feminine, and feminine without being too pink and girly.

This dress by black butterfly designs fit the bill - feminine 1950's styling, with an a line skirt including built in netting for volume, a sweetheart halterneck neckline that emphasises the bosom without showing it off, and a contrasting ribbon sash that could be tied in a neat bow around the back. As pictured above, it comes in six colourways - I originally purchased mine in the one you see in the larger image, black with a black ribbon sash, and red and black roses.

This dress looks absolutely fantastic on me, and I have a far from perfect figure - a definite beer belly, and rather oddly shaped hips. This dress skims over these imperfections, and with the help of the sash gives the impression not only of me having a fairly flat stomach, but also a rather slim looking waist. It does sadly expose my rather chunky upper arms, but these can easily be concealed with a bolero jacket.

The fit is generous - I normally wear a size 22-24 in dresses, and ordered this in a size 24. It fit well, but still had plenty of room left in it, and I was glad for the sash to bring it in around the back.

Great value for money! I absolutely love this dress, bought it for going to a family wedding and everyone commented on how lovely it looked. Even my gran liked it! Gives you a great figure as well, because of the halterneck. Overall a great purchase! Can't wait for an excuse to wear it again :)

5.0 out of 5 stars I FREAKING LOVE IT! 14 May 2014
Colour Name:Black Rose| Size Name:24|Verified Purchase
the fit the material the print the feel EVERYTHING I just love it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!! its so lovely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thinking of buying it ?? well.. STOP THINKING AND JUST DO IT!! seriously the best thing you'll ever do! its a perfect fit!! with room to breath YAY!! my sister wants to borrow it but LOL she'll have to get it off me first ;)
sadly I got this for my dad's funeral because I refused to wear just black so as he used to always buy roses for my mum and because we are welsh and the red is the colour of our dragon and the fire in our hearts ;) I got this beautiful dress which I know he would have loved to see me in :) -tearing up-
anyways I will also be wearing it for 2 weddings and just in the house to twirl in the mirror LOL and being a larger lady it really works wonders it smooths over any bumps giving a LAVLY shape and really shows off my curves in all the right places (for once) & im so very happy & this goes perfectly with a peplum jacket by the way ;) PHANKS!!!!! XXXXXXXXXXXXX

5.0 out of 5 stars Slimming, skimming and sassy! 11 Dec 2013
By kathy
Colour Name:Black Rose| Size Name:16|Verified Purchase
I can't rate this dress highly enough. I ordered in a size 16 even though I'm an 18. It fits beautifully with lots of room across the back if needed. I have a large bust but didn't need a bra with this dress. It held me in securely and as its lined around the bust there was nothing to indicate I wasn't wearing a bra. Such a flattering shape, I felt like a size 10. Flattened my tum, skimmed over my hips and enhanced my bust. Stunning dress and will definitely be ordering in different designs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely 22 July 2012
By Be
I've had my eye on this beautiful dress for a couple of months. Wasn't disappointed when it arrived within two days. I ordered size 22 and it is big enough to skim over the lumps and bumps but tight enough to emphasis the right curves. Beautiful colour and length.the only thing I didn't like was the netting at the bottom so I unstitched it and it didn't ruin the dress.
