There was a thread recently recommending them so I ordered a couple. Mine arrived today and I'm dead chuffed! For the money they are great and really flattering. I was a bit worried they would be a bit a short but I'm 5 7 and the dresses sit just above the knee.

Thank you whoever recommended them thanks.

Can you post a link to those that you ordered?

I've just googled them, there are some nice dresses on the website and very cheap - I'm going to order a couple for my holiday and see what they're like.

DaftSkunk Thu 19-Jun-14 20:56:59

I ordered this one and this one.

That's the same style I fancied skunk but I thought they would be a bit short at 84cm, no? There are some bargains to be had for sure, and some lovely prints.

Hey have got some lovely prints but they ones I really liked weren't in my size unfortunately. When I ordered from amazon if you ordered two there was free shipping, added bonus! Thought they would be ok for work.

Free shipping? Oh well it would be rude not to! grin

What length are the dresses you ordered DaftSkunk? I can't wear much above the knee due to my great age smile but am vy tempted by these dresses.

Order black polka for one.

It's strange because I was just thinking to myself how id like a Polka dot dress!

How's the sizing? The size 12s are mainly sold out.

Could i squeeze in to a 10?

Thanks for the link!

What's the fabric like? They look ok but I dread the sweatiness of polyester!

DaftSkunk Thu 19-Jun-14 21:28:14

I think you'd get away with sizing down, I'm a 14-16 and ordered a 14.

Beaverfeaver2 Thu 19-Jun-14 21:28:27

The reviews said they came up small so I went for a 14 instead of my usual 12

Just saw that you mentioned the length in the OP. I'm a shorty at 5 3 so definitely going to order. should get knee coverage at my height.

DaftSkunk Thu 19-Jun-14 21:32:00

The length is 89cm, have double checked with a tape measure!

DaftSkunk Thu 19-Jun-14 21:35:34

The fabric is ok, the printed floral one is better IMO as the polka dot one is nice but the dots are printed as opposed to part of the fabric, so would imagine they might fade over time in the wash.

I've ordered as well! This maxi is one of the prettiest I've ever seen, unfortunately I'm a short arse and they don't suit me.

DaftSkunk Thu 19-Jun-14 22:10:17

Ooh that's lovely wild

Damn you all! My credit card is taking a walloping right now...

WildThong Thu 19-Jun-14 22:41:14

Really we should get a mumsnet discount!

Cute and great prices but too hot here for polyester....

I just posted on the other thread! Mine arrived today, very pleased. Got the navy polka dot and the royal blue blue one. Plain one is different material (polyester/elastane) to the spotty one (viscose and something else) but both are very flattering and can be dressed up for work and down for casual wear. I want more!! Oh, I'm 5ft 3 and the length is perfect. Could even be a tiny bit shorter but not enough to make me alter them.

Igggi Thu 19-Jun-14 23:58:06

..I should know buy now not to stray into S&B! Just bought two dresses blush
I don't even wear dresses.

Good to know rocky. Was it you who recommended that knot style for apples on the other thread? I've got the navy polka dot dress, a layered drapery scarf cardi, a maxi dress and blue flowery dress coming as well.
Same as Iggi, I don't normally wear dresses so hoping these will suit.

I've got a couple of the knot front dresses, navy and jade green and have just ordered the black/red poppy type print.
