WHITE SKY KNIT DRESS
Such a pity
Ordered this dress in a smaller size as everybody suggested but as I'm quite full busted I shouldn't have bothered as the normal size 14 would have been fine.
Lovely colour and material but agree with previous comments about it being unflattering around the hips being large in these areas. Also found the length a bit odd too. I reminded myself of one of those knitted doll toilet roll covers when I had it on!
Sorry but it's on it's way back :(

Simple and elegant
This is a flattering, understated dress that draws attention to you, not itself. After some of the reviews I wasn't holding out much hope, but I'm thrilled with it. It doesn't make me feel wide or dumpy. It's definitely worth a try, especially at the sale price. And it will be warm, I can tell already - a dress to take you through the colder months for sure.

I thought I would give this dress a go - I've had my eye on it for a while. I was very disappointed. It fit me ok in the bust (not too low) however from the waistline it just came out making me look very wide and short. I thought the whole shape of the dress made it look very frumpy. Tried it various ways with scarf, jewellery , leggings etc but no better. It's on it's way back!

Wow wow wow
This dress is amazing. In fact I think it's a winter must have in any wardrobe. It hangs so beautifully when you wear it that it makes you feel glamorous and beautiful. I have a young baby and I still have baby weight but it hides that and makes me feel fantastic again. I just love this dress.

Understated but stylish
I'm so glad I decided to take a chance on this dress (the sale & 20% off helped!) as the reviews were a bit mixed. It hangs beautifully, feels lovely, warm and soft and the colour is very flattering (I'm pale and blonde!)

Loved this dress
Delighted to see this dress reduced and could not wait to try on. I loved it and so wanted it to fit, which it did perfectly except for the neckline. It was just too low and there did not appear any way for me to alter it. So disappointed that it had to go back. The skirt fell beautifully despite other reviews saying otherwise. I sized down 12 to 10 so the fit is a little generous.

I love this dress!
Gorgeous colour, lovely material and so flattering. I am petite on top with a small waist and large hips, making it really difficult to find flattering dresses. This is perfect though and really does flatter the waist and hips. The first time I wore it the waitress in the restaurant stopped me and asked where it was from. Thanks WS!

Lovely colour, more blue than pictured. I like the panelling detail and seam work all over, it gives shape. Quite large in sizing but it may shrink a little when washed. Overall, keeping it and like it very much,

I love this dress. I was drawn to it by the blue-grey shade, which is perfect for my colouring as I have blue grey eyes and light brown hair.
It is a very generous dress and as a result I had to size down - doing so fitted me perfectly, and comes to about an inch above the knee (I am 5 ft 4).
It is very flattering on for my figure (I am an hourglass shape) with a lovely scoop neckline that's not too low and the detail under the bust-line gives it pretty but not over the top detail (I love simple lines and colours).
It is also very warm - and so a perfect dress for the winter months and can be dressed up with heels and some nice jewellery or down with some flats and a coordinated cardigan. I have a feeling it will be getting a lot of wear this winter!
Its a pity the other reviews I have seen have been average as for me its one of the best dresses I have found on the high street this autumn - and I would give this dress a 10/10!

Great winter basic
Drawn to this product by the lovely colour and the fact it has long sleeves,.The dress is a very flattering The scoop neck and shape are great for the larger chested women.( I am a 30F)
I hope to be wearing this drees alot over the coming cold winter months.

Lovely colour, nice quality knitted dress, long sleeves, great neckline, scoop but not so low, attractive under bust detailing...let down by the unflattering fit caused by the V insets on the side seams, makes a size 12 look like a size 16
would have been a great dress if the seams were flat with no insets.

This dress is made from a soft, medium heavy knit.The colour is a medium blue-greyish. It has a nice length. It goes to about 3cm above the knee on someone 1.73m tall. It is quite big in my usual size, I think sizing down is a must with this dress. Downsized it is a nice fit on top. Chest detailing sits a little bit under the chest and the scoop neck is not too high and quite flattering. The sleeves are long, but I think could be a touch longer, because they just about reach my wrist.
But the bottom part is what lets this dress down. It really is quite wide at the bottom and flares out a lot. I looked properly and saw that the dress has some inserted side panels at the sides which add to the volume. It would have been much better with a straight cut bottom part. This just looks frumpy and unflattering for the figure at the bottom.

I so wanted to like this dress!
I love White Stuff woollen dresses. I practically live in them. So I got very excited when I saw this one. I'm trying it on right now and trying to find a way to make it look right ... but I agree with the last reviewer - it really is big and, as a pear shape, the fact it flares out quite a bit is making my hips look huge. I really don't want to send it back, but I think I'm going to have to :-(

Lovely colour but disappointing.
I was really looking forward to receiving this dress, however I'm really disappointed with the fit. It's very large (would suggest sizing down) and because of the shape looks like a tent. No good at all for pear shapes. Had hoped it would skim the lumps and bumps, but it just looked awful.
