SKY HIGH DRESS
Deceptively understated, but so flattering for curvy ladies
I completely bypassed this dress on line, but spotted it almost hiding in my local WS shop and realised that it had a promising shape for my figure - very sleek and trim with no bulges or gathers, a fairly classic line flowing smoothly over the waist and a good length for me - just on the knee at 5'4". As a busty lady, I find that the empire line dresses so beloved of WS designers over-emphasise my womanly curves, but this dress subtly underplays them and is simply a WOW - really flattering - a great surprise for such an unassuming little dress. One possible drawback for chilly gals is that it is quite thin cotton, only lined from the waist down, but it's perfect to team with leggings/tights and a cardy and/or add a long sleeved T-shirt underneath. I love it - please repeat it in other colours!
