Beautiful dress - excellent quality
on 8 August 2013
Purchased this dress as I have others from this range and seller. Sometimes these dresses can come up small but this is not one of them. The measurements given as a guide are accurate and you should buy the dress by your actual measurements and not your dress size and it will fit lovely. This dress is made of lovely material. It is cotton with a little bit of stretch and is not see-through at all. Although I am a size 20 I do order a 22 from this seller as I like a little bit more room around the waist area which is great with these swing dresses and you can cinch in with a belt. This is only my personal preference so go with the size you need from the list given. This is one of the best dresses I have purchased from this seller. The style is perfect for the larger lady as the shawl collar actually comes out and looks more like a small capped sleeve. I would think you could put a thin bolero under the collar if it did not have a high back to it if you needed to cover arms or a slim cardigan. I ordered the navy blue which is a lovely shade of blue with small white polka dots which looks very classy. The same coloured belt that comes with the dress is a little bit thin but can be worn or you could change this to a navy or white belt. I found the length good on me as only 5' 3" and comes to about 2" below knee. I already have a white and a black petticoat for other dresses but this one is very full even without a petticoat. Even when trying on straight out the packet with its creases my 18 year old son said wow that looks nice. That is saying something really!!!! I think I will certainly purchase more of this style. The item arrived well within the delivery estimate and I can't wait to wear this to the wedding reception I am attending.
