Real-life review:

"Size purchased: XXL

Such a beautiful dress! Material is great quality, perfect fit around my tummy (I have a large tummy and this dress hides it well). This isn't the style I usually buy, or even the colouring and design pattern, but I saw this for a special occasion coming up and loved it. This arrived within the estimated delivery date given, well packaged. I tried it on immediately and found the length is perfectly suitable for being made godparent to my nephew. The colours and design is delightful and is the same as it looks in the pictures, comfortable, and the small belt tops it off very nicely." – Kindle Customer

I get everything from Amazon but I was a little dubious about purchasing a dress but I'm so glad I did! This dress is absolutely gorgeous! Looks lovely on and shows off your curves in all the right places. I'm supposed to be keeping it for my holidays but I want to wear it now." – Amazon Customer

Real-life review:

"Size purchased: UK 16

I'd advise going up a dress size. I'm a 14 and this is a size 16. I'm gobsmacked by the quality – it's beautiful. I'm wearing this to a '40s/'50s party but will definitely be able to wear again. Love it 💓🎀" – Spangle011

Real-life review:

"Size purchased: Medium

I love the dresses. I ordered three of them because I have some official cocktail functions coming up the next three weeks, one each week. The dress arrived today faster than I had expected and they fit perfectly. I can't wait to wear them at my functions. I'm a size 10-12 UK. But I took a risk and ordered a medium size. It fits perfectly, like tailor-made. I will definitely be ordering more from this seller." – AM

Real-life review:

"Size purchased: Medium

I am a size 12 and 5"10 tall – in heels it's next to impossible to find a formal dress I feel comfortable in. I wore heels and the dress sat about an inch and a half off the ground, but still enough that looked appropriate. The material felt lovely, needed a quick iron but that's expected. Really happy with it, absolute bargain." – Sarah Jane McGoldrick

Real-life review:

"Size purchased: 12

The size was spot-on in relation to the measurement and size chart. Very pretty. Very short. I've added a photo. I am 5ft tall and it was short on me. Very nice though." – Little Nichol

8. A swishy patterned rockabilly delight by IHOT.

Real-life review:

"Size purchased: Small

Fits perfectly – the sizes are perfect fit. I'm a size 10-12, ordered a small and fits no problem. Love the design – all the fruit prints and the brightness of the color. The length is perfect, not too short, not too long. The material is great for summer; you will not overheat. Really like this dress." – Elimante

9. A knock-'em-dead wiggle dress by Lindy Bop.

amazon.co.uk, amazon.co.uk

Real-life review:

"Size purchased: 16

Beautiful dress. Perfectly cut for my figure – I'm a size 16 but my waist is 10" smaller than my bust/hips and this really does fit like a glove. The pink bust is actually a lot darker than the photograph, but it's still a beautiful colour. Will be buying more dresses from Lindy Bop :-)" Rachel E Billing

Real-life review:

"Size purchased: UK 18

I was worried it wouldn't suit me or fit as I am a bigger girl with folds and a belly that hangs and didn't think it would cover me – but it fits amazingly. I highly recommend this item and will buy from them again." – Lauren Smith

Beautiful quirky dress. Looks fabulous when worn with an underskirt.

"Size purchased: XL

Love love love!!! Bought to wear at a fancy dress party along with a puffy petticoat. I'm feeling excited to wear it as it makes me feel really pretty.

It's not often I can say this with being a bigger girl but the designers have designed a fab dress." – Jacqui

14. A breath-taking black belted swan dress by DressLily.

Real-life review:

"Size purchased: XL

I love this dress! Bought for a '50s themed party and wasn't expecting too much from it due to the price but it's amazing!! Good quality, the skirt part is a swishy material and the top part is a thicker cotton material, so it's really flattering. I removed the belt that came with it and added my own waist belt and also a petticoat underneath too. I'm a size 14-16 and bought the XL – perfect fit. Amazing!!" – Danyelle Louise

Real-life review:

"Size purchased: Medium

Wow wow wow ! My favourite dress! Wonderful dress! I feel like a new woman after wearing only jeans and tops after my baby was born. She is now 3 years old so I thought it was time to be a woman again instead of just a mummy. This dress does the trick and now I feel like a 'yummy mummy' when wearing it and it is so easy to wear, especially when chasing a toddler around 😂" – Mrs J
