Just beautiful
Bought this, and a cropped jacket and the grey and pink fascinator, for my daughter's wedding in Portugal in July - everybody I have shown it to loves it! it is just perfect. I'm wearing it with grey suede shoes - all I have to find now is the clutch bag to finish the outfit. Great fit and looks so classy!

I am only five feet tall . How would this dress fit me?
maria theresa on May 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER:Our models are 5'9, so this dress would probably be more of a maxi dress on yourself.
Hi what is the jacket that the model is wearing in the video? It’s perfect for the dress but I can’t figure out which one it is
A shopper on Aug 4, 2021
BEST ANSWER:Hi, The jacket is style number: 1500-0008. If you type that in on the search bar it should appear. Thank you.

Hi I am 5/3 will it be to long for me? I am looking for a midi thankyou

BEST ANSWER:The models we use are 5ft9. Hope this helps.
Is the skirt lined?
A shopper on Apr 26, 2020
BEST ANSWER:The skirt is fully lined.
I was thinking of buying this dress for a forthcoming wedding, how would the dress hold up if you are sitting down for long periods, I.e. ceremony, wedding 3 course dinner etc do all the pleats stay in place down the back of the dress ?just a bit worried if sitting down for any amount of time in the dress will spoil the overall look of it.
Linda on Sep 14, 2021
BEST ANSWER:The pleats stay in place perfectly, no creases and the fit of the dress adjusts when you sit so that the pleats still fall in shape. Brilliant - I would recommend it unreservedly, wore for my daughter’s wedding and looked just as fresh after 7 hours as it did when I put it on.
Would this dress be easy to shorten?
Patricia on Aug 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER:We would not recommend shortening this dress due to the pleating.
Have you really sold out of everything I need some cropped trousers?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2019

Is size okay I am sometimes 16 sometimes 18 ?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER:Customers who have reviewed this dress have said that it is true to size.
Any idea how I can get an exchange for different size?
A shopper on Jul 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER:You are welcome to exchange any item in store for a different size as long as it is in original condition with the tags attached, with proof of purchase and is within the 30 days. The store must have the size in stock in order to make the exchange.

If you have ordered online, we do offer an exchange service as long as you return within 30 days of receipt and in original condition. Write on the dispatch note what size you would like to exchange for and send it back in the post.
Has the dress got a zip?
Karen on May 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER:Yes, it has a zip.
Is the bodice fabric stretchy? I’m
Between 12-14 on top (large bust) 10-12 bottom, not sure what size to order!
A shopper on Mar 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER:The bodice contains 2% elastane so has a small amount of stretch.
Our clothing is true to size.
We do provide a size guide to help you get the perfect fit

I'd probably opt for the 12 as the 14 might be too big in other areas.
Do the pleats stay in easily. How well does the dress wash?
A shopper on Feb 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER:Wash inside out. Remove promptly. Do not wring or twist. Hang to dry.
Do not tumble dry. Do not iron pleats.
Following these care instruction should ensure that the pleats should stay as they are.
