Gutted could you wear a full slip underneath? It is gorgeous.

<imagines all the MNers unknowingly going to parties with their pants on show>

<actually sure stylish MNers would all have pants to match their outfits so maybe not such a problem>

I have it and I don't think it's see through. Thinnish material but not see through. I think I could've sized down actually but couldn't be bothered with the hassle of returning in case the size down was way smaller and it turned out I needed my normal size after all IYKWIM

ok - maybe I was wearing the right colour undies! Or maybe that's why DH really REALLY liked it wink

Might a navy or black slip not work better? I have a similar shaped black dress and pale underwear shows through it IYSWIM.

I've been dithering over this for ages...
Would it be ok with my 32Hs?
What's the stripy version like?

Me too muddleduck grin

I have Janice in Navy and Stripey.

Stripey is thicker material. I have not experienced the Navy being see-through at all.

There are some nice similar style dresses in Mint Velvet sale here - £38. I've linked to the whole (small) sale section so scroll down a bit to see the dresses.

I tried the navy on yesterday. It wasn't see through and I didn't need to size up. It was very flattering but I didn't buy it because navy scares me a bit. I also tried one on in Mint Velvet (the last one on Ginger's link) but it was nowhere near as flattering as the Janice.

If I did buy the navy one, could it be worn with a jacket over for work, does anybody think? And if yes, what kind of jacket?
