Ghost Chelsea Chiffon Tie Long Dress
Pity it is not lined
I tried on several of these Ghost dresses, including this one. I like the general principle of having a variety of different styles and colours to choose from.
However, the fabric is quite fine, and I would prefer to pay a little more for a lining, as I feel the dress would hang so much better.

difficult to launder
I wore this dress for my wedding in October and I chose ivory.
It hangs beautifully and I can't rate highly enough except that it has been impossible to get clean after the big day.
The dry cleaners would not take it because the care label advises only washing in a machine, which I have done 3 times now and even using stain remover and Fairy liquid (would you believe) the stains are still there and now the dress is useless. I had wanted to have it taken up to wear at other events but am now at a loss as to what to do with it. I thoroughly investigated dying it but that is not an option either.

I really like this dress, it fits really well. I chose the black one and it is lovely, the only problem is you have to be careful when touching it, as a tiny bit of makeup or even just your skin can rub off and leave obvious marks on the dress. Other than this it is a great dress but must be warn with heels if you are under 5"9.

Most beautiful dress I've ever worn
There are few dresses I have worn that have made me feel as beautiful and elegant and demure as this one did. The fabric is fluid-like and is wonderfully tailored, loose and fitted in all the right places. It is modest at the front but more revealing at the back, which feels significantly less exhibitionist than a plunging neckline yet infinitely more sexy. My only regret is that it doesn't have a lining, and it would be divine in pure silk.

Not worth the money!
After trying on in store in a different colour, I ordered a small in the colour I required. When the dress arrived it was a lot tighter than the one tried on in store. I then hastily ordered a medium which took longer than the given time of four weeks to arrive, to find this was not much bigger than the small! The only difference being it was slightly longer and the shoulder straps didn't fit right, as stated in the previous review. The colour was also much brighter than I had expected. Also extremely thin material and would require lining in order to look good. The back was also an issue re the bra, hence both dresses have reluctantly been returned.

The sizing was perfect and colour absolutely beautiful,but the shoulder seams sat forward on the collarbone therefore the finished look was wrong. The material was much thinner than the picture made apparent and would really have benefitted from lining to make the quality match the price.

Beautiful Dress if a little see through
After searching high and low for a wedding dress I ended up buying this dress on a whim. It arrived within three weeks in a stylish grey ghost box, packed in tissue paper. The dress was lovely and has great movement and is the most comfortable dress ever. The only downside is that in ivory it is a little see through, even when wearing nude underwear. I also found it a little hard to find a bra to wear with this dress as the back is quite low, in the end I used stick on silicone cups which worked fine, though I didn't have the same perky boobs as the model has on the picture.
After dithering and trying on lots of other dresses, I decided to wear this dress for my wedding day but got it lined in silk crepe by a clever seamstress (hence the four stars not five). This solved the see through problem for me and I wore the dress for eight hours feeling both pretty and completely at ease. I think the Chelsea dress works well as a wedding dress because of its timeless cut and simple style and I am planning to wear it again on our anniversary ...

I have just bought this dress to take on a cruise. Usually dresses are not long enough for me being 5'9 but the length of this dress is perfect for me. I can't wait to wear it.
