It's very nice but I think you'd have to be super tall for it to work on?

EllaHen Sat 12-Nov-16 21:08:07

I love it - really love it.

ErnesttheBavarian Sat 12-Nov-16 21:10:16

Would you wear knickers and a bra underneath?

Tenpastlate Sat 12-Nov-16 21:10:19

Amazing dress!

Losgunna Sat 12-Nov-16 21:11:28

Oh my that really is beautiful

CheddarGorgeous Sat 12-Nov-16 21:47:30

I am very small blush

Would definitely need a bra. Knickers optional grin

Could you get one of those skin coloured bodysuit type things, like a swimming costume but underwear to go underneath? You probably wouldn't be able to see it unless you were looking for it then?
I don't think you really need to be tall either just well proportioned

CheddarGorgeous Sun 13-Nov-16 18:03:52

I am fairly well proportioned. I've got a couple of hours in London tomorrow so I might try to track it down.

A bra showing through the sheer bits would run the effect.

SharingMichelle Sun 13-Nov-16 18:06:43

Ruin.

Not run.

FishSauce555 Sun 13-Nov-16 18:27:41

It's fab.

I don't think it's actually sheer though, think I can see flesh coloured lining?

Worth trying on, looks gorgeous. I'm only a foot too short for it. And 2 stones too heavy.

Well I searched London yesterday and could not find it. I did however buy two Karen Millen dresses for work... so nothing to wear to the party but I will look smart at work hmm

Hi! I actually work for Gina Bacconi. This dress has been a good seller for us, its really flattering as is in stretch jersey! I can offer you a special 10% discount mumsnet10 Let me know if you have any questions or if I can help in anyway!

user1479227322 Tue 15-Nov-16 16:38:07

also its not sheer! it has a full lining! you cant see through the gold sequin detail!

OlennasWimple Tue 15-Nov-16 16:39:28

Hang on - the side panels are sheer but lined, aren't they? GB buyers not exactly the target market for no-underwear dresses!

I like it but please, not with the chiffon wrap thingy!

Fab offer from user14.....

welcometowonderland Tue 15-Nov-16 17:59:06

That is a fabulous fabulous dress.

MadameCholetsDirtySecret Tue 15-Nov-16 18:03:08

Oh dear. I'm the only one who doesn't like it.

UntilTheCowsComeHome Tue 15-Nov-16 18:06:08

I don't like it either Madame

Trying321 Tue 15-Nov-16 18:31:21

I really like it, I don't think you'd need to be tall for it either.

CheddarGorgeous Tue 15-Nov-16 19:02:55

Oh how exciting! I guess my only questions are (a) what is the sizing like and (b) could I pull it off as a 5'2" person (and could I get it taken up.

Thank you smile

awaynboilyurheid Tue 15-Nov-16 19:08:47

It's gorgeous!

QueenMortificado Tue 15-Nov-16 19:11:17

It's gorgeous! And how kind to give a discount too

The only thing I dislike is the length on the model. This fashion for having ankle length stuff is awful, it's so unflattering. Given you're short OP it would be the right length on you so o think would work well
