I ordered 3 because they were only £9 each and wasn't sure which to choose. And they're all good. To be fair, they're all identical in terms of style but different patterns. I'm a size 16 and they're really very flattering. here. Maybe not everyone's cup of tea, but they're lined and seem to be well made. Just saying.

They lok nice, but I can only see an option in black.

Thank you. I've just ordered a couple of them too. That shape suits me quite well and they are so easy to wear to work.

Thank you for the link.

Thanks for sharing Boris. Would you say they're true to size.

I don't know about this dress, but I always size down in matalan. Their sizes are definitely big.

Romcom thanks for size info. nightsky if you go onto the matalan website and into the dresses section then they're on page 3. There's 3 different patterns.

Thanks, can't go wrong for nine quid really.

If you can't find them, go to 'dresses' 'D for damsel'

I bought some of those last week - they're alright, quite basic, but the sizes are all over the place. The usual Damsel in a Dress stuff (non-Matalan) is massive I find - I'm a 12-14, and when I was after one of their coats, I couldn't get it small enough (they go down to an 8 and it still drowned me).

The ruched one in Matalan, I had to go down to a 10 - still a bit big. I'd go down two sizes in them all if ordering.

The fabric is a bit nasty but the real DiaD lines are too, so better to pay £9 than £100+ smile.
