"I've never written an Amazon review before but honestly this dress was such a surprise I absolutely had to. This dress is amazing, I seriously can't believe how affordable it is for the quality. It has a brilliant drape, the lining has weight to it and just the right amount of stretch to fit well across the bust and waist. The lace is of really good quality too! I cannot fault this dress! I wore it to a friend's wedding and got so many compliments on it. This is now my go-to dress for parties and I'm probably going to have to buy another. Seriously, treat yourself to this dress, it's awesome :)–

You have to know that I usually don't write reviews but this dress has definitely deserved one!! What should I say? It is just so stunning. I felt like a princess. I bought it for a masquerade ball and all eyes were on me. I never got so many compliments in my life before. Everybody just loved this dress. Also for that price it's unbeatable. It looks so so much more expensive than it actually is and omg everything is just perfect about this dress! Thanks so much for making my evening one of the most special ones in my lifetime! :) –Theresa1992

"Cannot believe how great this dress looks on. Forever wary of buying clothes off Amazon, but this dress is amazing. So, I'm nearly 6ft with heels on and this dress gives just the right length to the floor. It also has a tiny train at the back, which is gorgeous. I went for the Large after reading reviews etc. I'm normally a size 12 and it fits lovely. Definitely recommend this dress to anyone going to an event, it really is lovely."

"I never bother to write reviews but this product is more than worth it. I needed a dress for a 20's themed birthday party and was a little scared to buy this as for me it seemed a little bit pricey and as with most clothes bought online, you're never sure if you're gonna get the quality for which you pay.

However this dress blew me away. It's heavier than it looks and the detail is amazing. It's VERY comfortable and not too long, and I couldn't be happier with it. I'm 5'6" and usually wear sizes 12-14. I bought the dress in size 10-12 and it's a little loose around the chest but I personally don't consider that a problem at all. I can tell this will be absolutely perfect to wear on a night out where I'll be drinking and dancing. Literally the best amazon purchase I have ever made in my life. – Ligita

"Absolutely stunning dress and a head turner! Looks just like the picture. As it's corseted at the back you will need assistance to do it up at the back. Looks more expensive that what it is. Total bargain. I felt a million dollars wearing it. I got the XL as I have a large bust. If you have a smaller bust then this is not the dress for you as you need a bust to hold it up. –Kirsty

Size purchased: M

"This dress turned up in a lovely bag, didn't need any ironing. It's just such a beautiful dress and fit pretty well. I am 34" chest and 29" waist, so I ordered a medium to give me the waist size. It was a little big on the chest (I guessed that might be the case) but you can pull the ties on the back a little tighter and hey presto a snug fit. The fabric is a lovely thick cotton type fabric so hangs nicely. I've not tried it with an underskirt yet but it looks quite beautiful without one. I love the dress so much, I've just gone back to order another one in a different pattern."– Amazon Customer

"Impressed with the quality of this dress, good lining so it isn't see through either. It's for a bridesmaid dress, so all day wear and thankfully a comfy fit. I used seller's own measuring chart and had to go up to a size 16 from a 14 which was a good fit. Not as tight as I would like around the bust (I'm 34F) the seller says the bra is in the dress but I feel I need to wear my own as well. Good length too for wearing heels or no heels (I'm 5'7") Colour as expected as well. Super fast delivery!" –Amazon Customer

Size purchased: 8

"I received the dress in a size 8 which is what I usually wear and it fits me perfectly! This dress is absolutely beautiful!! It hugs me in all the right places. The top sits lovely and then the chiffon material just falls down so elegantly!

The purple colour I have it in is like an aubergine purple. The dress seams are really nearly sewn together, no loose or hanging threads. The dress has a nylon lining so makes it quite heavy so the chiffon falls well.

The bra area is well padded so you do not have to wear a bra with this dress and because the top is fitted you have no worries about falling out of it

I am only 5ft tall so the dress is a bit long for me, but with 6 inch heels it should be fine." – Pooja Gadhia

"More than happy with this dress!!! I am a size 8 and read the reviews before I ordered, most of the comments said to buy a size up I didn't do that – I got my actual size, size 8 and it fits exactly how it should!!! It's been beautifully made and can see effort and work has gone into making such a nice dress." –

Size purchased: 20P

"As a fifty something mother of the bride for a summer wedding in a country house garden I was a bit stumped on what to choose! I saw this option and was really unsure about buying a dress without seeing it in the flesh so carefully read all the reviews. I took a chance..the dress arrived beautifully packaged almost before I clicked on it and....WOW! It is gorgeous and very well made. There are no fastenings except for the lace up back so you will need some help to do it up but it is sooo worth the effort. It is extremely flattering. Having carefully measured and used the chart provided I ordered a 20p....I am a size 16 with a large bust and 5'10....length is perfect. I am beyond delighted and will certainly order again. Thanks for the gasp from hubby too! – Peak Princess

"Beautiful dress! Fits perfectly. I did order xlarge first as I am size 18 but when it came it was way too baggy at the top so I sent it back and ordered a large and it fits so much better! I got so many compliments wearing this dress and it's so comfy!" –Charlotte

"I ordered 3 for my bridesmaid dresses. Really happy with the fit, quality and overall look. They are very flattering and were true to size. I originally ordered a bigger size as per reviews but they were too big. The company were excellent, good communication, fast, very quick to refund and replace with a 12, 14 and 16 which were the girls' actual sizes and they were perfect. Had lots of compliments on the day. Shame one of the bridesmaids threw up over the other one, the loon!! –

"I loved my dress!! I read the reviews and ordered a size up. I'm normally an 8-10, but ordered a 12. I'm about a 36D and this 12 fit perfect. I will also suggest getting a petticoat to go under it to achieve the flare look in the pic, otherwise that skirt goes flat. –Demetria
