Rated 4 out of 5 by 123abc Barbara Hulanicki Dropped Waist Dress
Nice fit, neckline not too low, little shoulder pads give definition and shape to head of sleeve and make it stand up (can tuck them inside so they sit on the shoulder if you don't like the 'puffy sleeve' or want to change the look). Sleeves are a between elbow and 3/4 length and snug fitting but not tight - would have preferred full length to be honest as I prefer a longer sleeve.
Overall length of dress is around knee length on me (I am 5'9" tall) and is straight cut down to where the 'drop' begins and then there is a lightly ruffled section sewn on below. Good versatile dress that lends itself to being worn in different ways, especially as neckline is a shallow scoop which lends itself beautifully to a statement necklace for a more glamorous look or with a scarf or small necklace for a more subtle day time look. Material is a good weight, not a thin jersey that loses its shape easily, but not a very heavy thick ponte either, this is somewhere in between and is comfortable to wear and washes well.

I am a 10-12 across most brands but the size 12 looked very skimped and unforgiving. To go a size larger would have made the proportions even stranger.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Boppityrabbit Little black dress bargain!
I bought this because I generally love Hulanicki designs and because from previous experience of this clothing from Asda, it is very good value and very convenient for me to 'click & collect'. This is a neat lbd and I wear it as a dress and also as a tunic over black jeans. A good buy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Glastoqueen Great for the price
Its a nice style with the skirt flairing out. The material is thicker and warmer than i was expecting. Its more clingy than i thought it would be, so if you dont want it to be tight fitting go up a size. Its fantastic for the price and looks alot more expensive than it was.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dya1 i love this dress
I love this dress. Shoulders- a bit too much material maybe. Accurate sizing.
Flattering shape for fuller figures, great with boots, leggings or thick black tights. Wear for work or an evening out

Hummed and awed over this dress,because of the dropped waist style,but because I had bought Barbara Hunickie items before I went ahead,I am so glad I did,its lovely,very nice quality material and a very flattering style,the slightly padded shoulders give it a lovely structure,all in all very pleased for this great dress at such a small price.
