Hmmmm..
The fabric is of high quality but it is quite thick, which doesn't really allow this dress to flow over your body and move with you, but more kind of just sit there doing its own thing, so you end up looking fat. The draped bit at the front of the skirt exacerbates this problem by adding bulk. I am size 0 or 00 and this dress made me look fat. Incredible. In addition, I am not sure if the black lace neckline/shoulders work very well. The shape of it reminds me of deer antlers, which is not very sexy on an evening dress.

Baggy
This top doesn't work for me as it is overall too big and the sleeves are way too wide for my arms. The sleeves being of mesh material, the fact that they are too wide makes the top just look wrong and frumpy. For the price I think the fabric looks cheap. For reference, I am size 0 and got this top in P.

Beautiful but too tight!
These look great but the leather is thick and hard with very little give (doesn't stretch) and the size is smaller than average. I normally wear 36.5-37.5 with 95% of my shoes being 37, but although I could squeeze my feet into these shoes, it was painful to do so and there was no chance of walking in them. Otherwise, the shoes are beautifully crafted, the patent leather looks high quality and the gold heel tips are very cute!

Strange Fit
This is the strangest strapless bra I have ever encountered. The cups are much larger than they should be for the size (I normally wear 30D/32C/32D and got this in 32C but I didn't fill the cups on this one) and there is nothing at the top of the cups to stop them falling down. The fabric is very thin (mesh), so unlike stiff structured cups, these ones need elastic or rubber strips along the inside top to grip to your chest, but these have nothing so the cups just crumple and fold onto themselves when you wear the bra. Also, the colour is darker and more red than the pretty pink shown in the photos.

Feet aches
I have no idea what is wrong with these. I have wide feet with a fat big toe (just the one toe on each foot, the other toes are normal), so these should be perfect for me as they are wide and have round toes. But when I walk in them, I feel like my toes are scrunched up in the front because the shoes are too short, but then my feet slip out at the back. It's like the shoes are meant for someone with long feet but with really short toes or something. Consequently, when I walk in them for more than about 5 minutes, the instep of my feet (the bones on the top of the feet) really start to ache because I am essentially walking with my toes curled under. Looks-wise they are fine (look like the website photo, no nasty surprises) and the insole is nice and cushy. These felt fine when I wore them around the house, so I wore them out and now can't return - bit bummed

A dressy body
A nice body to wear with a dressy kind of skirt or when I want to jazz up a plain black skirt. I think the quality is quite nice for the price and the fit is good, not too long like some bodies can be on me. I am 5'2", 95lbs for reference

Fine
This dress is fine, nothing too special about it, but then it is cheap. I find it a bit frumpy for my taste, I am used to more tight fitting or tailored outfits. The colour is quite nice so I suppose the main thing I don't like about it is the fact that it is not structured. I would probably be wearing this when I want to look more demure than usual, like when I am having tea with the in-laws or something.

Good length
I am 5'2" and skinny (95lbs) so I like tops that are short and tight fitting, otherwise I look swamped. The length of this top is perfect - not so short that it looks embarrassingly like I am mutton dressed as lamb (am 37 yrs old) but short enough not to cover the bum and look good with normal-rise jeans or skirts. The fabric is also a good weight, not too thick but not flimsy and cheap looking either. All in all, I expect to get good wear out of this. The kind of thing I would be wearing to the pub on a Sunday, as it is sexy/cute in a casual/daytime way

Weird fit
I was a bit disappointed as I expected this to fall just below the knee (am 5'2") judging from the description which said it was 38" long. I found the straps ridiculously long and once shortened to the correct length, the dress was hoisted up quite a bit so that the hem ended up falling a little bit above the knee which is the length I hate the most as it makes my legs look wonky. The overall proportions of the dress are a bit strange also (really big waist and kind of small in the bust. I am 33-24-34). The colour is a bit duller/greyer than it looks in the website photo.. a bit too muddy looking for my liking, but the fabric quality is actually not bad. Overall, an item that I would send back if not for the fact that I got it in the final sale and can't!

Simple and elegant
Gorgeous rich royal blue colour, looks like the website photo and is spot on. The design is very simple and elegant and the fabric is thick enough to hide bumps and such. Would be wearing this to cocktail parties and nice restaurant dinners.
