WILLOW TREE DRESS
Have had my eye on this dress for a long time, finally decided to get it, especially in the sale. As this is a shirt type, with front buttons and a clinched waist, I decided to get both my usual size and a size up to make sure. They both fit well, but in my usual size it was slightly tighter on my waistline and the buttons across my chest does open slightly. Therefore went a size up, and although is bigger under the arms, I do wear with camisole under and it gives that extra bit of comfort without being oversized or looking frumpy. I do have a mummys tummy (have twins) so, upsizing did do a world of difference. it definitely isn't a lot of difference in measurement but comfort to the max. Best part of all, I love the side pockets and the collar. Sits on the middle of my knees, perfect length, and lined as well. Love it a lot, one of the best dresses this summer, please do more in different colours or patterns next time round.

Not quite sure of this one
I quite agree with the other reviewer that this is a lovely dress, great for work and can be adapted for a different look with cardi's etc. I tried sizes 14 and 16 and both fitted with the button at the front, which is a surprise given this is usually a problem for me (broad and D/E cup!)!
Sadly, I am reluctantly returning given the general fit of the dress. Perhaps its my shape or height (5'3) but somehow it gathers at the back just above the bottom and it's really unflattering...
So sorry but this isn't winner for me today :(

Great work dress
This dress is ideal for work as the length is just on the knee and the cleavage is hidden away. However, like all front buttoned shirts and dresses I have problems with gaps and my bra appearing, this has happened a little with this dress but easily rectified with a safety pin. A size up would have been too broad elsewhere. Really happy with it. It's also lined and a lovely faded navy colour.
