I love the Ophelia dress from Lindy Bop. I'd probably buy it in almost every colour and print. It's flattering and fun and great for summer, weddings, picnics, special occasions. You'll feel gorgeously vintage in it. The Ophelia seems to come in two types of fabric - a stiff thick type and a silky thinner type. This dress is made of the latter and it clings just a tad (but with a petticoat you won't have that problem around the hips) but floats around your legs elegantly. The print on this fabric is a bit more vibrant than it appears in the photos and a little less 'pencil' than it looks on screen, which was actually part of its original charm for me, alas. The fit is fab but I have a problem with the LB cut in general in that to fit my bust I really need to order up a size but then my waist would be swimming in fabric. I am quite busty and while the length of the torso on the dress is great (some stores forget to add length to width for bigger busts) - and actually slightly too long for my height - the bust isn't quite the width I need so the dress gapes at the sides of the bust and shows too much bra. A cardigan helps to cover this but it is a shame and a compromise as the waist is already slightly too big in the smaller size. I have other LB dresses in the same size (not Ophelias) where this isn't a problem. But on another plus side, pockets! I can't wait to wear this dress out.
I love this dress which I bought for my best friends wedding. Lovely material, great pattern and fab mix of colours. I bought the 26" plum petticoat to wear with it and they match perfectly. Only negative is the dress i very snug fitting - I had to buy 2 sizes bigger than my normal dress size. I've already received fab compliments on the dress (including from my husband which is wonderful) and can't wait to wear it at the wedding. Will definitely be bck for more.
