Long backless dress for a work event

(14 Posts)

I'm going to a work event - black tie - at the end of the month. I'd like a long backless dress, can anyone help me? Can't find anything on the internet which will deliver in time, or doesn't look a bit cheap. Budget up to £400.

That's nice! Wow! Hadn't considered long arms either. Thank you.

Littleblackdress.co.uk has some nice ones

Thanks goose. Have you bought from there, all the dresses I like have really poor reviews 😕

Oh I just realised that website is the one with poor reviews sorry OP !

What's your budget? I love this

Soyalatteforme Wed 07-Feb-18 19:09:00

Thanks theday, that site had great dresses but a lot of the reviews say quality is poor - one mentions a smell of cigarette smoke, and dresses not being like the pictures. Shame, as that's a great dress.

Thank you thenightsky, I'm 'happy' to spend up to £400 - that dress is nice, although not too keen on the front dipped hem.

Only the first one in my size unfortunately and that's slightly over budget. But, a definite contender if I've no luck elsewhere. Thank you!
