I got one in 2019 Emma Willis by Next. Cotton sundress. Buttons at the front and shirred back panel. It fits beautifully but all I see now is totally shirred top or shirred waist. I'm big of gut and this style flares over my tummy whilst giving me some waist. It's in the wash but this looks similar but I want the shirred back
Any colour will do. Cotton or viscose at a push rather than jersey. Size 14. Petite would be fabulous. Anyone?

I would love one too, especially cotton

Abercrombie definitely have shirred back tops, and I think dresses too.

You get loads on eBay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Womens-BOHO-Summer-Beach-Midi-Dress-Ladies-Holiday-Strappy-Button-Cami-Sundress-/392813550529?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0

I would love one of these too. Also petite.

Whistles have a nice one. But it is quite expensive - around £90 ish

The US brands do them. GAP, Levis, A&F off the top of my head. New Look have a few tops and minis.

I've been looking for very similar. May have seen one on Shein that looked ok

This is longer and square neck, but looks nice

I have one of the ones from this link (white with blue pin stripe) and it's really comfy - has pockets In too which is a bonus

Ooh lovely thank you. SHEIN have a beautiful sunflower one but it's polyester 😒. Can't pay £90 but off to check out the links thank you

Are the eBay ones cotton? The one I just clicked on said polyester but the style is just what I want!

TU have a couple.

coralcavesenormouswaves Thu 22-Jul-21 07:57:48

H&M had some similar

FelicityBeedle Thu 22-Jul-21 08:01:03

I have the Shein polyester one and it’s surprisingly comfy! Doesn’t feel like polyester particularly and looks beautiful

Upaverytalltower Thu 22-Jul-21 08:12:01

The eBay ones are not cotton (unless certain colours are) - I have one. They're cheap material but to be honest they are quite handy for summer, they don't crease.

This keeps coming up on my FB

Fat face do them every year. I'll have a quick look for some links.

goose1964 Thu 22-Jul-21 17:20:52

I bought on from Amazon by a company called doorway to fashion. It has an embroidered front and chiffon panels, it's stunning but also rather hippyish

HelenHywater Thu 22-Jul-21 17:25:55

There's a black one in Arket that's nice - can't link as the site isn't working at the moment.

And yes, Whistles too.

ramarama Thu 22-Jul-21 18:07:09

damn you OP! I've now gone and bought this one due to your bad influence


polkadotpjs Fri 23-Jul-21 20:19:21

@ramarama I'm buying one too!

There’s a fair few out this year. I used to be smaller but big boobed so shirred back was great so I didn’t need to go up a size. I could never find them tho! This year they are popping up everywhere, Yours, Next, M&S, SimplyBe
