A beautiful dress. Wore it to a Christmas party and got lots of compliments but there are a few quibbles I had with it! The biggest is that the arm holes are huge! I had to take them in almost an inch in order for me to be able to wear a bra and not have it be seen under my arms. Also this dress is EXTREMELY generous if you are busty. I usually have to be very careful about buying dresses online because I have a small waist but pretty big bust which means that I have to cross my fingers and hop between sizes 8 and 10. I went with a size 8 on this dress and I could've gone smaller! For the first time since my teens a dress was loose on my bust! If you're not worried about it being too tight on your waistline, go a size smaller that you usually would! As a last point, the dress is a slightly darker colour in real life than it looks in the picture. More of a dusky rose pink than an Icing Pink. Still very pretty.
Oh Octavia - how I love thee so. This colour is absolutely yummy - pink icing is an apt descriptor. It's a grown woman's pink, almost a rose colour. Definitely elegant and a great alternative to the standard LBD here in Canada and the side zip ensures that this dress would be suitable at all semi-formal and most formal events here on the west coast. I have a 42" bust and the UK16 fits me like a dream, I can even manage the side zip myself. This bodice is great for us long waisted gals. The length is perfect. I would not change a thing about this dress. This dress will be paired with the white petticoat for my wedding rehearsal dinner. It will be amazing. There was a slight manufacturer's defect - but the Lindy Bop customer service team sorted it out and now my dress is good to go.
