That dress is gorgeous!

The dress looks nice. I've given up on them though, as I think the quality is poor for the price and their fabrics are getting nastier.

miffybun73 Wed 24-Apr-13 20:00:23

Oooh, lovely dress!

PoohBearsHole Wed 24-Apr-13 20:46:19

Sorry oops

I agree about quality of some stuff but this is fairly cottony but a bit flimsy but it does look gorgeous on, not sure after a few washes though but we shall see!

I just keep seeing such expensive stuff about and ordered some online stuff which was horrid too and twice the price (boden [ sad])

I reckon of I keep it nice for swanky work do then I should be ok - its a day tme thing so should be ok smile what do we think of the jumpsuit then?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Wed 24-Apr-13 21:07:35

A no from me for the jumpsuit, but others may love it.

I've just bought the jumpsuit last week as I can breastfeed in it... I am quite tall and found it flattering on, which is the best I can hope for when shopping for feeding-friendly clothing. It's nicer on than it looks in the pictures (I hope...) I wore it with a big fouffy scarf and huge high heels for a christening this weekend.

I would never have chosen it but I picked it up thinking it was a dress and gok (critical) thought it was v nice. A, still undecided as yet!

I got the Arizona dress yesterday iME. It's absolutely lovely on.

Love the stripey dress too OP.

iMe Thu 25-Apr-13 13:47:19

ah, thanks for the link, therumoursaretrue. Yes, lovely and slimming, the shop assistant said it's been very popular, but when I got home I worried she was just saying that to make a sale. So I'm glad someone else on s&b approvessmile smile

I got a size 16 as boobs are big and I don't like feeling uncomfy ion that area, it also meant I could slip a vest to underneath should I feel the need.

I bought the Arizona dress too and am going to pick it up in a min! Thought it would be good for the summer and I loved the colours.
