Rated 3 out of 5Â by MGiovanna Nice dress ... would be better value if lined!
Ordered L which is a nice, flowing, flattering fit, reaches the floor (I'm 5'6" UK 14/16 US 10/12 FP M/L 36/38C/D). The neckline is adjustable along a drawstring so you can open it up more or less to adapt to your shape, have it closed or plunging. The drawstring waist is good for adjusting to fit too. I'm on the fence about this one, though, because of the fabric. It looks nice enough, it is a silky viscose, but as the description says, it's fairly sheer. That's ok with lots of FP slip dresses that are suitable for wearing a slip beneath, but with this one, I feel as if I have bought only half the finished dress. The material is nice-looking but for the money isn't the best value, but with a proper full lining (and not just a few short inches that barely cover your underwear as with some 'fully lined' items!) the cost might have been justified. Others may or may not feel as I do that the top needs something under, but the skirt part definitely does, which is tricky because the open back dips below the waist and a half slip would show at the top. It didn't really work with a full slip. I tried it with the Galloon Racer Back bra in Graphite, the Galloon Deep V bra in Graphite, and the Strapped Layering Cami in Black. The cami works best because you can cover up the top of a black half slip and get round the problem at the back. I like this, it's a lovely shape and colour, but am not certain about keeping it at this price when it just ... needed to come ready-lined.
