I can buy it for £46.

Yay or nay?

You'd need amazing legs, it's very short

Viviene Thu 18-May-17 22:11:57

IF you have the body for it yes, otherwise no. I wouldn't but I am plump :-) and have big boobs.

AteRiri Thu 18-May-17 22:39:18

I'm plump, but no boobs and yes good long legs. But you're right, it might be very short.

AteRiri Thu 18-May-17 22:42:00

Here's another picture of the length

Love it! If I had the legs I would definitely wear it!

Andthen Thu 18-May-17 22:44:44

How tall are you? It would be a lot longer on most mere mortals...

You'd be able to see your bra through the lace at the front which would ruin the look and make an otherwise nice (but short) dress look tacky (imo)

AteRiri Thu 18-May-17 22:47:52

I'm almost 5'8" (short by 1/4").

It gives the length in the description. I reckon it would be just above the knee on me (am 5' 4"). If you can do high neck, then go for it. It's gorgeous.

AteRiri Thu 18-May-17 22:54:53

Yeah high neck usually works for me, as I have a boyish (plump but boyish) body shape.

MadameSzyszkoBohush Thu 18-May-17 23:28:12

It's lovely imo.

Viviene Fri 19-May-17 07:01:50

Can you get away with not wearing a bra with it?

If you like it, go for it! Life's too short ;-)

It's lovely! Where can you get it for £46?!

Baconbinge Fri 19-May-17 10:06:25

Love it!!

EverythingEverywhere1234 Fri 19-May-17 10:11:06

I'm amazed so many people love it. Honestly it reminds me of one of those paper doily thingys. It looks very cheap imo.

namechange20050 Fri 19-May-17 10:15:05

It's fab. Snap that up!

It's a Self Portrait copy. I would buy the real deal personally.

LadyOfTheCanyon Fri 19-May-17 11:55:02

It looks like a ditsy tennis dress. I think it's one of those dresses that photographed well looks ok, but then you see someone wearing it and you think ' oh dear...'
Caveats:
If you have a small chest ( no bra)
Great legs
Tan

-then it's doable. But I have very stringent ideas (being a shot fat person) as to what people with better figures than me should wear, because I end up thinking Oh you could wear anything, why did you choose that?

UrethaFranklin Fri 19-May-17 12:34:25

I don't like it either and am shocked that so many of the PP's think it's lovely!

I think you would need to be about 16, very skinny and tanned to pull that one off, I'm not sure it would look as good on a plump person (sorry OP).

DavetheCat2001 Fri 19-May-17 16:29:21

Nay..don't like it at all.

verite Fri 19-May-17 17:44:10

Love it as long as you have the legs for it.
