for £130 - delivered for free on Tuesday!

Quite a few 'summery' dresses that look as if they can be autumned/wintered up with some leggings and boots.

But the quality of their own brand stuff is shocking IME...

Really can't agree with that Lucky.

Last week I bought this and this and they are both gorgeous.

First one is made of lovely thick cottony material and fits like a dream (and does indecently good things for my boobs) and is mega flattering on the stomach (shortish and curvy 12/14)

Second one is a slip dress with chiffon overlay - really girly and pretty.

Kenneth, what's the sizing like on the first dress? I'm between a 14 and a 16, not sure which size togo for? Dress is lovely.

KennethThePage Sun 17-Jul-11 23:20:44

I would say get the 16 Viva. I'm more a 14 than a 12 and I got the 14. It zips up confidence-boostingly easily and looks fab! But I think if I'd gone for the 12 I'd have looked a wee bit lumpy!

Get it! T'is lovely! Unless you're hugely tall. On the model on the site it looks indecently short but the site gives you the model's measurements and she's 5'9.5 as opposed to my hobbit-esque 5'4 so it actually more than covers my arse wink

No, am 5ft3, so thought it might even be just above the knee on me!

KennethThePage Sun 17-Jul-11 23:27:19

Go for it then! In fact get both and send back whichever doesn't fit?! You might well be fine with the 14?

I'm tea dress bonkers. There's just no other style of dress that does so much for my figure/retro sensibility. I've worn that green one 3 times in the last week!

The fact that it is free delivery and free returns - does it for me everytime!

I've ordered the green one, very excited about it coming. Thanks.

My stuff arrived today - v happy with all but 1 dress. Might just have to go back online and see if any further reductions. Quite a few bits of Warehouse stuff on there - but weren't massively reduced - so maybe by this weekend they will be??
