MANGO TREE DRESS
Comfortable and Easy to Wear
Yes, the fabric is quite thin, but actually that's what I quite like about it!!! It is really easy to just pull on, and is lovely and cool. It falls really nicely on me, doesn't cling, and is a great fit all over. Washed and ironed really well, hardly needed ironing in fact. I can only wear jersey dresses because I am different size top and bottom, so am becoming a big fan of White Stuff dresses, this is my second, and I love them. This one better than my first, as is slightly higher on the neck line, and therefore doesn't show your bra!!

Material too thin, poor quality
I have to agree with the previous review, couldn't believe my eyes when I read it, as was exactly what I was going say. Received my parcel today, and yes, the material is way too thin, and overpriced. I too, bought it as loved the colour and description of it. Although it did fit alright, it was slightly clingy (bought usual size though#, and didn't do much to hide the usual lumps that we normal mums have. I so wanted to keep it as I loved the colour, it suited me a lot, but to my dismay I even discovered a small hole near where the string to tie the dress starts from. This is such a poor quality dress, and can forsee that in a couple of washes more holes will appear due to the nature of material. Should have made it in thicker cotton at least, as the price definitely doesn't equate to its standard of quality. So very disappointed I have to return this dress, as I did like it when I saw it online, and in flesh ..as in its colour an overall design appearance. Please make this style of dress again in thicker cotton...will definitely buy again then...sorry White Stuff..rather disappointed today :-#

After reading the reviews, I was really looking forward to this dress arriving...
It arrived today and I immediately loved the colour, it's subtle and has a slightly washed out appearance that I actually quite like. The embroidery is very pretty too.
Unfortunately, that's all I liked about it! The fabric is so so so thin and it arrived completely creased which didn't help. The fit is fine, but the quality is so poor that I'm returning it. It's the same cotton fabric that WS use for their sheer t-shirts, and in my opinion, not good enough for a dress! This would have been perfect had the cotton been thicker, it's such a shame.
Sadly, I think it's poor quality and completely over priced when you compare it to a couple of very similar stores that have very similar dresses with thicker fabric for the same price.
