Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent fit! Stylish and flattering. Good quality material and comfortable to wear. 14 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for money Purchased this dress today in John Lewis Kingston, looked amazing, felt comfortable. Could dress up with accessories. Ultimate lbd for a 50 + great cut and hides any lumps and bumps! 06 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Oozes quality This is a fabulous dress in a very heavy, very stretchy fabric and is fully lined. My size had sold out by the beginning of February so i had to try it in a bigger size and even though it was too big the shape and fabric mean that it is extremely flattering, making me look taller and slimmer. Desperately hoping more will come into stock. 13 February 2014
