5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!, 6 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This sheer scarf is GORGEOUS with a capital G. Very luxurious looking. I'm not wearing mine, though (although I might well, first chance I get) - I bought it to drape asymmetrically around my dressing mirror in the bedroom (which looks very classy and fits excellently with my bedroom decor/design). Well made and light as a feather, would look stunning with a white summer dress and strappy high sandals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly sexy, classy, comfy...a 'forget you're wearing it' and 'pig out at a restaurant without worrying' dress, 6 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to take on holiday.

The photo doesn't do this lovely and surprisingly classy dress justice! I'm surprised and delighted at how lovely and classy it looks on, and imagine it'd look great on *anyone*, regardless of figure type (bar someone quite short). I worried it might look a tad frumpy, but - NOPE, quite the opposite...."quietly and sophisticatedly sexy" is how I'd describe it.

It fits flatteringly all-over (skims nicely, doesn't cling), *and*, thanks to the tummy ruching (from below the breasts down to belly-button area), pulls you in just enough to accentuate the waist.

In the photo, I see the model must have tied the top shoulder ties fairly loosely, making for a quite wide strap (which is what makes it look slightly on the frumpy side, IMO).. However, you can tie them far tighter than that, making them thinner and the dress that much more "little Black dress"/sophisticated for evening (say, classy restaurant). Also, I discovered that due to the positioning of the ties on the underside of the shoulder material, you can also tie them round your bra straps, thereby keeping the two together. This means [1] your bra straps are never exposed (handy, since my fave evening-out bra is red satin) and [2] also means you can pull the dress straps slightly further outwards along the shoulder to give it a subtle off-the-shoulder appearance (which is even more flattering to one's figure as well as to the dress itself). Not that you need to - just saying...wearing it as intended is perfectly fine.

A third flexibility (I experimented around with it quite a bit): although it's designed to skim the knees, if you want to show more leg, either both sides or just the one (for an asymmetrical look), then, thanks to the aforementioned overlaying ruched tummy 'panel', it's possible to gather up and tuck, from just under the ruch, the front or side lengths of the dress and push it *under* this panel using your fingers (as much as you like) and, thanks to the snugness of the ruched panel and softness of the material, not worry about it slipping or falling when you move around or sit down/up/bend over, nor end up with a tummy bulge when viewed from the side. If you do it equally, both sides and middle (around your belly-button area) you end up with a dress that's however much shorter at the front than the back, which looks still looks nice but adds a quirkiness. I myself tried it on just the one side and then added a Black silk sash, tied into a bow on the same side... suddenly I had a designer party dress!

I can also imagine it looking great in winter with black tights (10 denier), heeled boots and a pretty waist or jumper, either waist/hip-hugging or teamed with a wide-ish belt. So not only is this dress perfect for beach to restaurant in summer (looks good with plain Black flip-flops) but could also be a staple in any season...in which case - SUPER-BARGAIN!

All in all, then, *highly* comfortable, *highly* flexible, *highly* flattering day dress, beach dress, evening dress ...looking even classier and more expensive with diamante necklace and earrings and strappy black (suede) sandals (the dress has a slight suede look...so I'd say non-shiny sandals would work best, bar gold or silver if you wear matching jewellery and have a tan). Heck, it's so comfy on I reckon you could even sleep in it!

It's also very light and cool, but without being in the slightest bit see-through. Oh, and no visible panty or bra line, either...nor looking fatter from the back than the front because of the way it so cleverly skims (so no having to wear bum/hip/waist/upper thigh control pants in the holiday heat).

By the way, I'm 5'7", a size 12 or 14, depending on the manufacturer, with quite big boobs (40C), wide-ish shoulders, bit of a paunchy/saggy mummy tummy below the belly-button, wide hips/ample bum and love-handles". In this dress, however, I look a sleek size 10(!!!)...yet still very hourglass front- and back-on (in fact, more so than usual). So - Hurrah!....Top marks, Glamour Empire!...am one very happy bunny. :-) Will probably buy another in a different colour quite soon.

(Sorry to go on and on. But that's how unexpectedly chuffed with it I am.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Work and fit comfortably., 18 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These were a gift for my husband. Whilst he hasn't yet had a chance, weather-wise, to experience how warm they are, the 5 stars are to reflect the fact that they fit comfortably and definitely work as effectively as naked fingers on a touch/heat-sensitive mobile phone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Now intend to buy the whole series!, 26 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had no idea the calibre of music/artists on this CD would be so good/sophisticated and so atmospheric! Am now going to start investigating the rest in the series.

Perfect for sunbathing to, falling asleep at night to, garden party/BBQ music, driving to... or just sat doing nothing but listening to it. Really makes you feel like you're on holiday in Spain, sat admiring the sea at night in a beach bar. Also excellent as (cough!) bedroom music.

Nice mixture of moods as well - some are chill-out, some more up-beat, some downright funky enough to make you want to dance yet still atmospheric/romantic/sensual enough not to (if that makes sense)?

Now one of my fave CDs. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Works!, 26 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been using this for well over a year now (and *not* every day, just twice/thrice per week on avg) and YES, MY EYELASHES *ARE* NOTICEABLY LONGER AND THICKER than before I started, and consistently so. Plus, I haven't done anything else, either, that could take/share the credit, like change my diet or mascara. So yup, over time, certainly - it works.

Am now going to start putting it on my eyebrows (slightly over-plucked) because it stands to reason it'd work on those too. Will report back 'when'.

Looks good, feels lovely, doesn't shed, doesn't dirty easily either (had it about a year or more and STILL not had to put it through the wash). Also stays put well and is a good size as a hearth rug.
