These Cath Kidston dresses.

I really like them, but I worry I might look a bit last of the summer wine. I have got a big tummy. What do you think?

Like some of the patterns but I think they look a bit frumpy

I didn't see a single nice thing in the last CK catalogue. Super frumpy the lot of it!

This is the only one that looks ok, the rest would be best left to Grantchester.

I can't imagine seeing someone in a Cath Kidston dress and thinking, "Wow! She looks amazing!".

Having just been in the CK shop earlier today, they all look kind of sacklike in the shop.

If you like patterned frocks, I think Seasalt are much better - some of the styles are really flattering.

They look like dresses made out of what you have left over after making curtains because you're being thrifty.

I really like some CK dresses. In fact I'm wearing one right now. However I wouldn't waste my hard earned on any of those prints.

I thought the ck thing was over many years ago? The dresses look awful.

She is laughing all the way to the bank.
Her house was once featured in a magazine and there was no chintz in sight.

I imagine someone very slim like Keira Knightly would look lovely in them for a walk on s nice day. I like the white one

Bit odd... None of the links work for me?

Hmmm not really rocking my world... Have a look at these, retro but a bit more 'wow'....

CK links don't work for me either

Links not working for me but I've tried a couple on in CK before and they are not at all flattering. I'm relatively slim but they made me look huge.

You would be better off with a Joules Riviera dress.

I'm with Remus here. They can look good in the catalogue but are sack-like and unflattering in reality.

(Actually, sometimes even the models in the catalogues look shit in them.)

This one's nice, when you actually see it on the model, with the tied waist.

Top Vintage do retro better.
