Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for a garden wedding! Absolutely stunning dress however it was rather big. I didnt wear the black slip under it (just wore black underwear!) as it was swimming on me but I was able to make it work still - I received lots of comments. Very lightweight too so it was fine on a hot day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from beautiful but for giants I'm not tall, but I'm not exactly extremely short either; this dress swam on me. I know the sizing recommended going down, but it's a dress that doesn't suit you if you've got curves (for context, I'm 5'4" and a size 10 with an E bust). It was huge on top but tight on the waist/hips (usually my issue is the other way round), and very very long. Lovely print, designed for tall gazelles. Oh well! Learning experience!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty print but runs VERY large Pretty print and soft fabric but runs really large - and long. I am 173cms and usually a size 12-14 but hired a 10 and it swam on me and was extreemly lowcut. Unfortunatly i had to return unworn.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs Large I am usually a 10, sometimes an 8. I order the 10 and I was absolutely swimming in it. I had to return without wearing. The dress looks beautiful but sadly, I didn’t get to wear it.
