Rated 5 out of 5 by from Short and fab I got compliments all day with this dress, which was a dream to wear. Only problem was that the buttons don’t go all the way down; they stop at mid-thigh So it’s effectively pretty short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful silk dress I wore this dress to work, to dinner and to daytime functions. It is very beautiful, lovely silk fabric, and pretty forgiving given it is a short dress with an adjustable belt. Loved this dress.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely dress amazing button detail on the sleeves - it is a shirt dress in a silky fabric so the buttons gape quite a bit when seated.... Was totally unsure how to thread the buckle on the waist tie....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gorgeous material but the length didn't suit me I rented this for work, it's gorgeous material but the length didn't suit me as a shorter person.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Challenging fit I really wanted this to work but I went down a size as per the other reviews and found that it was pulling quite a bit around by hips/butt and breasts. The belt doesn't seem to have anywhere to lock it in place, so I had to use a safety pin. Ended up not even wearing it because when I sat down you could see my underwear. If you've got boobs and/or a butt, this is probably more true to size or even a bit small - go up!
