dress

It's not my cup of tea but if you've got an hourglass figure with boobs the shape will look good. Where would you be planning on wearing it? Would be fine for holiday.

Love it!

Not my cup of tea either but I can imagine it looking fabulous on the right person.

Oh thanks for the link Eggs. I didn't realise mine hadn't worked. I don't think I'm quite curvy enough to be an hourglass but I do have boobs. I have fallen in love with the dress. I'm so tempted to try it anyway. As to when I'd wear it probably anytime blush

If you've fallen in love with it try it smile As you have boobs I think it will be incredibly flattering and a great shape.

You've probably seen that they've got the same fabric in a different style

I love it.

I did see that NewPants. I didn't like it quite as much but I may try it if the original one doesn't work for me. There is so much choice on the website though. I could spend a fortune.

It reminds me of the Flintstones. Sorry.

heavenscent86 Thu 09-Feb-17 08:31:13

Well I suppose it won't be to everyone's taste grin

Not keen on the collar. Would make me look like I'm 5 years old.
Everything else about it I like!

Dowser Thu 09-Feb-17 09:50:51

Like the second one more but , the collar doesn't do it justice.
Its superfluous, doesn't need it.
Is it in shiny polyester fabric.
I have some maxi dresses in that fabric that I bought from holidays
I haven't worn them for years and it's time for them to go.

heavenscent86 Thu 09-Feb-17 10:04:12

It is polyester but it says it's matte finish so I'm hoping no shine as that is likely to put me off.

BusterGonad Thu 09-Feb-17 11:15:37

I don't like the print but I can see that it is nice and if that's your style I think it will look great, I do not like the second dress as it looks very puffy and frumpy around the neck and boobs.

AnchorDownDeepBreath Thu 09-Feb-17 11:18:05

I think the fabric is wrong for the first style of dress - it's too booby to have a Flintstone-y childish print, so it looks odd; but the second dress is frumpy and has an awful collar.

I'd just buy the fabric and make a new dress if you really love it smile

I like it, and if you love it go for it. I think it is suitable for everyday wear, or you could dress it up for a summer party.

I have a couple of skirts from Lindybop and the quality of the fabric is really good.

humanfemale Thu 09-Feb-17 13:13:50

I love it! Love the halterneck, that 50s turquoise shade and just everything about it! smile

LoupGarou Thu 09-Feb-17 13:20:24

I love some of Lindy Bop's stuff (the Sinead Moscow dress) and I love the print of this one but don't like the style. I don't like halternecks though.

heavenscent86 Thu 09-Feb-17 13:33:19

It has been dispatched today. I'm praying it fits and suits me. I checked my measurements against their size guide so fingers crossed.
I'm glad to hear that the quality of the fabric is good lala. I've never tried their clothes before so I'm not sure what to expect.

heavenscent86 Thu 16-Feb-17 18:36:35

Well this dress arrived but it didn't fit me. I loved the print but sadly thought the material was awful. It was pretty shiny even though it's meant to be matte finish. However I ordered a couple of cotton dresses from the site also and I love them. Just wish they had the dinosaur dress in a cotton fabric.

NewPantsforaNewYear Thu 16-Feb-17 21:37:24

That's a shame.
I had a look for other dinosaur dresses but there don't seem to be many similar ones around (surprisingly smile)
Spotted a Cath Kidston one. It's £60 but someone is selling one on eBay here.

NewPantsforaNewYear Thu 16-Feb-17 21:40:09

There's also this t shirt dress but it's not as exciting.

NewPantsforaNewYear Thu 16-Feb-17 21:49:48

Dinosaur skirt

NewPantsforaNewYear Thu 16-Feb-17 21:54:03

Mini prom dress and I'm stopping!
