Great if you are tall and willowy
I saw this dress online and thought the dress looked great in the picture and so ordered it. Unfortunately for me, unlike many White Stuff products that I have bought, this dress just wasn't right for my body shape. I am about 5ft 5, size 14 and wider in the hips than the bust and found that the dress made me look a bit like I was wearing a box.
The material feels lovely and I love the autumnal colours but it just didn't suit me. If I was about 3 or 4 inches taller but the same weight to the same height but slimmer, it might have been a different story. Not to worry, though, I returned the dress and bought a beautiful, more fitted dress with horses embroidered on it that is much more flattering for my body shape.

Saw this in the magalogue and simply had to have it. When I received the dress it really looked lovely. The quality, drape and heavy feel of the fabric would be great for a board meeting or a working lunch. It just needs w/s tights, boots and a long necklace to complete the look. Sadly for me and my size 16 (complete with the lumps and bumps of middle-age spread) this dress wasn't for me. I think the last reviewer was a tall size 12 so I can see that shorter curvier girls may be unable to carry off the look. Nevertheless, this dress is stunning and beautifully made. If only I was 2 stone lighter and a foot taller I would have kept it!

Feeling so good!
I bought this dress for work. I am a size 14, 165cm tall. I expected something more chunky- looking - judging from the picture- but the dress comes in a soft, flattering fabric. It is comfortable, practical and not baggy! A great dress that can be dressed up or down on different occasions. With winter coming, a grey cardi will keep me warm.
