Kept for a wedding next year
09 October 2023
Fits loosely but it has a belt and it suits the style of the dress. And the patterns and fabric are delightful.
23 August 2023
Disappointed with the quality of the dress. Hook and eye at top of zip will not connect as sown in incorrect place. Fabric not trimmed properly. Expected better. Main colour of dress in photos appeared to be blue but dress is green.
17 August 2023
Beautiful dress - just what I was looking for.
05 August 2023
Stunning dress, hangs beautifully.
27 July 2023
I love this dress!! Gorgeous material and style, perfect fir in the body even for my larger chest. Only small issue is the length, at 5ft 4 it's about 3 inches too long but I love it so much I'm just going to buy super high heels to wear with it :)
21 July 2023
Loved it! Amazing quality and style
07 July 2023
Beautiful dress - absolutely wonderful.
01 July 2023
Very elegant. But need heels. Could have been 2 inches shorter
22 April 2023
Beautiful flattering dress ! Love it
21 April 2023
I am 5ft 11 and even with heels, this is a very long dress which would be difficult to take up due to the pleats.

Lovely dress, just not for me
01 November 2022
I haven’t worn this dress yet as I’m keeping it for my nephew’s wedding. It’s absolutely gorgeous, it fits perfectly and felt very comfortable when I tried it on. I can’t wait to wear it to the wedding!
29 October 2022
The dress is beautiful no doubt. A bit pricey for me. I expected the material to be heavier but it is surprisingly light. For my figure it is a very generous 20 as it was bigger than any size 20 I own and looser. The length is superb and the flow regal almost. I got so many compliments for it.
23 October 2022
It was beautifully made.but way too long and I'm 5'7 . Would.not be easy to shorten a pleated maxi
16 October 2022
Perfect dress for Autumn weddings. Received some many lovely comments on it and felt great.

24 March 2022
Lovely flattering style, colours and material.
17 March 2022
Lovely comfortable dress, Needs altering as its too long as I bought the next size up to what I normally wear. So recommend you buy Australia sizes as advised by table eight.
07 March 2022
Perfect! Exactly how I imagined it would be! The fit is great & the material and design amazing. So many beautiful comments about how stylish it looks. Definitely one of my most favorite purchases ever! Thank you.
03 March 2022
Perfect dress for mother of the groom
17 February 2022
Lovely dress and fits well
09 February 2022
The dress is flattering and lovely but is very long. It is described as a maxi dress though and I am only 5’4” but I would need to wear big heels and it would still reach the floor. I am keeping it and having it shortened so i can wear it as a day dress. Left at floor length it looks more like an evening outfit
09 February 2022
Length is ridiculousy long
09 February 2022
Great quality as ever, another great dress
19 November 2021
I’m delighted with this beautiful dress, gorgeous colours and great quality!

13 October 2021
Good quality and great fit. Looked amazing on my mother.
13 October 2021
Loved it although it was a little bit long - I am 5'8". I wore heels to compensate. Lovely flowing skirt. Good size 16.
04 October 2021
This dress is 100% polyester that I'd really rather not buy. I bought this dress as it is just lovely, very flattering, floaty and light weight
24 September 2021
Lovely dress, quite big though
16 September 2021

08 April 2021
A beautiful dress, I love it! I find it difficult to find a nice summer dress and pleated. This was perfect and it fitted me perfectly.
07 December 2020
Beautiful dress for a special day. True to size. Perfect length. I am 5.6.

13 November 2020
Perfect fit and pretty dress so flattering.
02 November 2020
Quality outstanding, fit perfectly. My wedding outfit for my sons wedding! So pleased
30 September 2020
The dress is so elegant and fits me perfectly. It looks beautiful and suits my requirements exactly.
13 April 2020
Absolutely love this dress! Colours as depicted, and my regular Phase Eight size fits. A bit long for me, but with my (lack of) height that's always the case with anything maxi. Fits well with heels, though. Skirt is not completely opaque and shows silhouette of legs, but is not actually see-through.
20 March 2020
I loved the dress. I'm glad I waited though.
02 March 2020
The material was lovely, the style was lovely ..BUT the model must have been 6 foot 2 ..I am 5' 7" and until i tried on this dress, I didn't think i was that short. Yeah I could wear heels but christ they would have needed to be platforms...In all honesty I want long ankle/ calf length skirt or dress and they are damn impossible to find. This should have been perfect but I was tripping over the skirt, and material so fine I didn't want to risk taking it up 6 inches myself. Great dress for very long legged person.
27 February 2020
Fabulous adaptable dress for casual or formal wear....perfect for cruises .
26 February 2020
Loved dress
25 February 2020

22 February 2020
I loved the dress, feels great on
10 February 2020
Lovely dress for all occasions.
21 January 2020
Gorgeous dress and although a maxi it was very very long. I’m 5ft 7 but it trailed on the floor. Sadly I will be returning it hence 4 stars.
18 January 2020
I'm tall but item way too long for me, too much material from waist down
16 January 2020
Product excellent quality as always.
15 January 2020
The dress is lovely and well made but it is very long.
15 January 2020

14 December 2019
Excellent great fit and colour
11 September 2019
I fell in love with this dress but my size had sold out everywhere eventually Phase Eight had more stock. Well i wasn't disappointed looked lovely on the hanger and amazing on. Just need to find somewhere to wear it know.
20 August 2019
Beautiful dress. Very full and long skirt. Loved the colour. Loved the detail on the cuff. I will be wearing it for a wedding in September.
31 July 2019
The dress is just perfect for a Sept wedding. Gorgeous colors and the chiffon sheer material hangs beautifully. Some lovely details like the folds around the neck line and the buttons.
10 June 2019
I love my new dress! I brought it for a friends birthday party and got lots of compliments. Great fit, colour & pattern. It's pretty long (which I like) i just got away with it wearing flats but if you are shorter than 5ft7 then you might want to have it taken up or wear heals.
