Hi all. Does anyone have this style dress (seems to come in loads of colours and patterns etc)
I’ve read mixed reviews about the sizing and since it’s online I’d rather try and get it right instead of the faff of returning. I’m petite and quite top heavy.

I am slim. I’m trying to work out whether to size down or not.

I found them to be true to size/perhaps on the larger side (in 2015). To be honest I wasn’t very impressed with them, they pilled and looked rubbish after a couple of months of use. Too short on me too and I’m only 5’5”.

Oh really! The reviews are fantastic. Hmmm maybe I’ll order a cheap one off eBay and see what I think.

I had this dress in the lilac print and found it true to size. I wore it a lot so, by the end of my pregnancy, it did pill a little and looked a bit faded, but I still saved it for my next pregnancy (fingers crossed) and would wear it again. I thought it was a cute casual dress, rather than something for the office, say.

I found them true to big - I'd err on the small side

I don’t have that particular dress, but had other Seraphine dresses. I agree that they were generally slightly on the large size. I wouldn’t necessarily go a whole size down, but if I was between sizes I would chose the smaller.
