Rated 5 out of 5 by Angela69 Won't disappoint!
Lovely dress with a gorgeously feminine cut. The dress is true to size (18 in my case) with a back zip that is easy to reach and zip up (had loads of dresses over the years with poor quality zips that have rendered many a nice dress unwearable!)
The material is nice and the dress hangs well. For those who conscious about their shoulders, the sleeves are cut to give a more flattering outline up there.
I would add that the dress is a little shorter than the photo on the mannequin would suggest. In one of the early promo shots for this dress, the hem is easily 1-1 ½ inches above the knee on the model.
Suffice to say, this isn't a problem as it makes the dress look fresh and up to date. It's a fabulous dress and a must have for the party season.
Again, George have excelled this year with the party dresses and this certainly doesn't disappoint! Very highly recommended :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by neuromantik Gorgeous dress, awkward fit
I usually wear a size 20-22, but bought one size up to accommodate my unnaturally large bust. I suspect that like a lot of low priced plus sizes, this dress runs a bit small as the 24 fits beautifully across my chest, is a little loose on my waist, and nicely skims my hips. Also, at 5'4, the dress sits nicely at knee length - a bit longer than I think it's intended to be, but exactly what I was hoping for.
The only problem is, despite fitting everywhere else, the dress is absolutely huge at the shoulders and the cap sleeves are MUCH wider than they need to be. Still, it will only take a couple of darts to get the fit spot on.

Ordered with the click and collect option. Fantastic. Arrived earlier than predicted. Beautiful dress. Colours are rich and luxurious with a 1950's vintage look. I'm 5 ft 2 and size 16 but ordered the 18 because it was a fitted dress, and i am quite busty, but I had to return it to store and managed to get the 16, it's beautiful on! I also bought wine coloured shoes from George which were a perfect match. I received many compliments and am saving it to wear again for christmas day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wen248 A bit disappointed
I bought the first dress and washed it but when I came to iron it I noticed there was extra fabric around the neck line so it didn't sit flat, returned it and got another one but unfortunately when I ironed it Xmas Eve ready for Xmas day there was a 2.5" whole in the seam where it hadn't been stitched correctly, I patched it up as I really wanted to wear it (I didn't have anything else for Xmas day) but I will be taking it back again, although I have ordered a 3rd one online which is now in the sale!
I would recommend it but check all the stitching/seams first!
It looks great on and fits very well.

Got lots of compliments in this dress, a steal at the price too! I'm size 18 and find it hard to get dresses to suit my shape but loved this!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cathy1966 Awful length
Good idea, nice pattern, but a dreadful length. Instead of looking elegant it looks cheap due to the length of the skirt, this style needs to be longer to look good. A period style dress does NOT look good shortened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bubble212 Lovely dress
Lovely dress, nice style but I found it tight across bust so had to order a larger size than I normally wear. But overall thought dress looked far more expensive in quality than it actually was, a really good purchase.
