Rated 5 out of 5 by AmandaM A Lovely Dress
I had seen this dress online but thought I'd missed out when it showed as 'out of stock'. I was so pleased when it became available and even more pleased when it arrived only two days after ordering. It really is a lovely dress and the gold pattern makes it look so luxurious and worth a lot more than the advertised price. It fits me really well and at 5'8" it sits just above my knees. I'm really delighted with it and can't for a suitable 'special occasion' that I can wear it to. It would have been nice if it had been fully lined rather than just lining in the bodice but at this price I can't really complain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angela69 Great 'Little Party' Dress..
First things first, this is a modern take on the 'Prom Dress'. It shouldn't be confused with the classic prom dresses we all know and associate with the 50's and early 60's. The prom dress of today is a lot shorter as is this one.
I bought this one after buying the other 'Jacquard Prom Dress' with the floral pattern as it is the same cut and style which I thought was lovely and a great fit.
This dress is really just a 'shortish party dress'. It sits well above the knee by about 1-1 1/2 inches (5' 9 1/2" height for me) but doesn't look too bad for it. The skirt part doesn't flare out too much and the shoulders are covered which is a plus if you're conscious about your upper arms etc.
If you want to see how this dress looks on a model, look for the floral version of this on here and you'll see a thumbnail of the model wearing it.
The material is lovely, the skirt hangs nicely (well for me it does) and is true to size (18). Very pleased with it. Would recommend provided you are aware that this is only a prom dress in name only.
Now if only it was available in black.... :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by jenny73 great christmas dress
Overall I am really pleased with this dress. Its stylish and looks more expensive than it is. It will be perfect for the Christmas party season but also for weddings and other special occasions. Size wise I have found it generous and perhaps should have ordered a size down. It is exactly knee length and I am 5' 4''. I think it would fit taller ladies better though as the top seems a little too long and that is what is making it feel a bit big. Still a great bargain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tsin43 lovely evening dress
i bought this dress for a party and wasn't disappointed. it looks more expensive than it was and feels expensive on. my only gripe is that the skirt is very puffy and if you are conscious of your hips this wont help but it does cover the tummy so any party over eating will be hidden. i did wash it but you cant tumble dry or use softener so the skirt is still quite puffy.overall its a lovely dress and looks fab on.

This dress is stunning, an absolute bargain too. The only problem for me was that it was just a touch too short. I was disappointed to have to return it.

when I had this dress on many people thought it was an original 1950s dress I had many good remarks about it- its very stylish and looks great - it also washes and irons well

Rated 5 out of 5 by meweh Lovely dress and material
I really liked this dress but took it back reluctantly as it was too small on the bust because my bust and hip size are the same so I normally wear separates. The dress was obviously cut for the average English figure, that is 2" smaller on the bust than on the hips, but the next size up would've been far too big on the hips for me.
