50's POP DRESS
Found the last one on the rail in store and decided to give it a go. I also had wished the colours were as vibrant as shown on the model but once I had tried it on I found the more muted tones were a good match for my complexion. Just started buying this style of dress from white stuff, very flattering with the waist shaping. Usual size fitted well.

Good but wide neckline
Love the colours and great for an oldie like me to have sleeves!
Only one issue with this dress which wasn't obvious when trying on- only when wearing a few times. The neckline is quite wide and the cut is not quite right- I find one side slips down on one shoulder- partly due to my sloping shoulder ( ditch those shoulder bags girls!) which is annoying.
I'd say it was big fitting: I am anywhere between an 8-10 in WS and this is fine in an 8- even a tiny bit on the generous side.
Nice mid-weight jersey which doesn't crease.

Excellent for fuller figures
This dress is a departure from my usual empire line / wrap dress standard. As a fuller figured lady, I tried this on in the shop out of curiosity as I loved the colour, expecting it to look awful, and was incredibly surprised that it was really flattering. I've received so many positive comments about the dress, and is now my go-to dress when I have an important meeting/presentation, or when I feel the need to look fabulous (e.g. after a bad night's sleep). It fits and hangs well, and needs minimal ironing. All in all, a fabulous dress!
