TheBirdsTheBirds Fri 21-Sep-12 12:40:57 I've never bought any ASOS brand stuff before, but it's bargainous, 100% cotton, feels so cosy and great quality. Also not as short on me (5'5") as it looks in the picture.

TheBirdsTheBirds Fri 21-Sep-12 12:41:20

HERE. Sorry.

AngryFeet Fri 21-Sep-12 12:43:13

That's lovely. And if I didn't have a bottom the size of Europe I would buy it. Dammit.

MarshaBrady Fri 21-Sep-12 12:43:16

That's very nice! Might be a bit short on me, but great if not.

TheBirdsTheBirds Fri 21-Sep-12 12:46:40

Would the tulip shape not be quite forgiving on big bottoms AngryFeet? It's very roomy on the hips.

trixymalixy Fri 21-Sep-12 12:52:08

Really like that. Does look like it might be a tad short on me, but will give it a go grin

CakeInMyFace Fri 21-Sep-12 13:17:52

Ooo I love that. What's the fit like? Im a 10 in some things and 12 in others. Is it on the small side?

TheBirdsTheBirds Fri 21-Sep-12 14:02:40

Not on the small side, true to size I'd say. If your top half is your bigger bit then you'll be fine with the 10, if it's your bottom half that's sometimes a 12 I'd say get the 12 because it might ruin the shape to have it tight on the hips.

That's lovely!

IShallPracticeMyCurtsey Fri 21-Sep-12 14:46:34

That is lovely.
Well wear, OP. Am on shopping freeze otherwise would indulge for sure!

cornzy Fri 21-Sep-12 14:47:59

how high is it above the knee on you?

TheBirdsTheBirds Fri 21-Sep-12 15:44:50

Ok, I've finally changed out of my pyjamas at the impressive hour of 15.43 and am wearing the dress. It's four inches above the top of my knee, five if I was to measure from the middle of my kneecap.

TheBirdsTheBirds Fri 21-Sep-12 18:12:42

Another plus point for the dress... DH just came home and said:"It makes your tits look very nice."

He's a charmer hmm grin

mummyonthewedge Fri 21-Sep-12 18:15:59

Can I just say a big thank you TheBirdsTheBirds. That dress totally ticks all my boxes (colour, shape, sleeves etc), and as a result of your post I have bought it in both colours. Thank you

THETrills Fri 21-Sep-12 18:17:30

That's a lovely dress but if it's 4 inches above your 5'5 knee then I think it would be shorter than I would want (thanks for the useful details though!)

CakeInMyFace Fri 21-Sep-12 18:20:25

I think Im going to have to buy this! Thanks for the post op!

SunshineOutdoors Fri 21-Sep-12 20:59:41

Me too! If I see someone in it I'll be looking for other mn signs.... scarf, sock bun etc

QueenBeebread Fri 21-Sep-12 21:14:51

Oh dear, I've accidentally ordered this one too.

pigsmightnevercease Fri 21-Sep-12 21:52:22

Me too! grin

And my finger slipped and I accidentally ordered this to wear with it blush

Mummyonthewedge you're welcome, it's my ideal day dress too!

I suddenly realised I should order the grey one too last night, before you all bought them all!

Sorry elizabeth, maybe theyll get more, or someone on here won't want theirs when it arrives?

trixymalixy Sat 22-Sep-12 11:21:15

Mines arriving in about an hour! What are you wearing with it birds?

TheBirdsTheBirds Sat 22-Sep-12 11:27:45

Right now i'm wearing it with black opaques, fur lined knee high dark brown winter boots, dark green scarf and cropped leather jacket as i'm out for the day. Will wear with my balck suede topshop ankle boots for smarter days. And a tan skinny belt.

MissKeithLemon Sat 22-Sep-12 11:46:48

Grr angry I really like that dress but I fear it will be too short on me for daywear (5'8")

trixymalixy Sat 22-Sep-12 11:55:20

I'm about the same height as you mrskeithlemon. I shall report back when it arrives.
