Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress for the office! Really comfortable and heavier material, was perfect for a winter office dress. I had so many comments every time I wore it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fitted and comfortable! I was impressed with this dress, its fitted but still has a lot of stretch in the fabric. I did go up a size in this as Saba tends to run small, and I was glad I did. It was a bit longer than I would have liked, coming to mid shin on me so beware if you are quite short. It could also have quite a bit of cleavage if you have a bigger bust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress for work I used this dress so frequently! The fabric has a very forgiving heaviness to it, and it shapes around your body nicely. A long style that may not suit shorter people (or will just finish longer), I'm 178cm and it was a perfect length. I went up to the 10 as that was all that was available, and it fitted fine. There is stretch, so you could go down a size and it will cling a little more, or go up a size and it just shapes around your body comfortably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress! I rented this dress for work and it was perfect. A little on the long side but then again I’m short. It fit nicely and felt great. Very comfortable dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from flattering, comfortable and perfect for work What a beautiful dress! I usually don't like to go bare shoulders to work but this dress was so beautifully fitted and flattering I didn't feel like I was showing too much. The elasticated fit sucks you in and gives you a flattering waist. It is a thick stretchy material but with a tough zip but once you're in there's no worries
