Not a good fit if you are pear shaped
I ordered this dress in a 12 and 14 because I am between the two sizes. The 12 fitted lovely on my top half but was far to tight on my bottom. The 14 was too big on my top and even the bottom half was snug around my hips.
This dress is perfect if you don't have a curvier bottom and hips. If you are a classic pear and hourglass its not a good fit.
Its a shame really because I really liked the dress on the website because its different.

I bought this dress before Christmas 2013. I was lucky enough to use a voucher thus reducing the price to a reasonable amount. I liked the fabric and the different top. I also like the fact that the sleeve under the arm is cut widely and is very comfortable. I usually fit a 10 and I found this to fit on the bust and hips well. I wear it with or without a top underneath and it can be dressed up for an evening out and with a long cardigan for day wear. It is fully lined which also helps it to skim off the body. The fabric is viscose and falls well. So nice for White Stuff to make a dress which is not too short and suits my age. We women of 57 years do like to dress nicely without looking like " mutton dressed as lamb".

For someone who is pretty much suffering from middle age spread and therefore has no waist! This is a dream dress. Hangs beautifully disguising those of us with a bit of a tum. Yes there are issues with the cut at the top but I am a reasonably average bust size and it did feel tight. Just tried on another address in the same size and it fitted. I suggest you do the same.... typical Whitestuff sizing. Highly recommend this as a "posh" going out dress
