I really like this dress, but it's 100% polyester. I can't wear 100% polyester, it makes me sweaty and I crackle with static. And the texture makes my skin crawl. Fussy, moi?

Anyone seen anything similar?

(And anyone have any experience of shopping with Rosegal? It seems too cheap.)

link is just taking me to the homepage of the mobile site

That's a lovely dress but you may need to be careful of the quality and sizing.

The sizing is the main issue. A size M is a UK size 6.

XL is size 10.

Dressmaker? It looks like a lovely dress

It's a lovely dress OP, but I would never buy from Rosegal. In fact, I'd be surprised if they've not pulled that pic from another site. Have a read at this -

That's really lovely. Will it still be sweaty if the sleeves are as sheer as that? I might need to. It one to find out.

Woah Nelly! just read that article. The photos are funny though.

The dress with the flowers at the base and butterflies heading upwards is 100% ripped from another site, I've seen it recently.
You could try finding the original seller of the grey dress.

Very pretty dress!

Strange to style the model with a mobile phone though I thought!

happypoobum Tue 18-Apr-17 20:00:23

Those photos are hilarious

Well, not really but you know what I mean!

I am sure a wise Mumsnetter can find the original dress......

I've just got that dress from I'm 5'11, wear size 10 - 12 & bought the XXL. It fits well & looks nice, it's slightly brighter than the pic.

If it looks too good to be true - it probably is!

MrsWarthog hmm that site looks too similar. Not necessarily in layout, but in merchandise and price.

Doesn't cantchoose know where the real one is from?

mrswarthog Wed 19-Apr-17 06:45:38

They appear to be linked Goody! I'd read the reviews of Gamiss before I bought and thought I'd take a chance. Used PayPal, stuck to measurements rather than dress size.
With regards to dress, sleeves are open, just attached at the elbow and wrist so not overly sweaty.

buster I'm pretty sure the white one with the butterflies on (in the same section of the site to the one OP likes but a different dress) was from Elsie's Attic - there is a similar purple version on their site now but not the white one any more. If it wasn't there it was another vintage-inspired site, I considered buying it for an event a few months ago. The others are not from the same site as far as I recall, I'm afraid.

BusterGonad Wed 19-Apr-17 07:40:20

Ah. Ok can't, I'll have a look for something similar, I know the pain of liking something only to not be able to get it! grin

GoodyGoodyGumdrops Wed 19-Apr-17 12:55:26

That's good, mrswarthog. Unfortunately, if a 10/12=XXL, then a 16/18 hasn't a chance!

GoodyGoodyGumdrops Thu 20-Apr-17 11:10:44

So, anyone seen something similar? I've a wedding to go to this summer! grin

LadyOfTheCanyon Thu 20-Apr-17 11:28:28

I doubt you'll find something that looks like that that hasn't got a high polyester/ Manmade fabric content given the sheerness of it and the drape. I mean you could find something in silk but that would be £££.
Sorry- I'm no help!
