Stunning dress with multiple positive comments from Lisa and other customers. Tried on the teal version but not the same effect. Not a dress I would ordinarily choose, but very flattering with lots of detail that makes this interesting to look at and very comfortable to wear.
11 March 2022
Love the ft and feel. It’s slightly long for me so I will need to get it taken up but it was still worth the purchase.
05 January 2022
Beautiful soft material and flattering style. Size guide was spot on. Colour was a bit darker than the image on the site, but I knew that from reading other reviews. I actually like the darker red better as it looks more formal.
22 December 2021
Gorgeous dress, perfect for the wedding that I am to attend
25 October 2021
Nice dress, lovely colour, but didn’t fit my style or the look I wanted.
06 October 2021
Lovely dress - very flattering. I went for the larger size so its a little big but the ruching makes it look still amazing.
06 October 2021
Beautiful dress just too small so ordered next size
04 October 2021
Lovely evening dresses. Rather disappointed that the red dress was much darker than the photos online than I expected. Quality and length (I’m tall) was good.
13 September 2021
Beautiful dress, fits perfectly and machine washable at 30 degrees (thank god!)
04 September 2021

Good fitting dress and lovely for a party.
14 November 2019
Good fit and nice material. Only thing is that I would have preferred more of a sleeve-age thing!- but could think of getting a shawl!
06 November 2019
Absolutely gorgeous, hides all the bumps to, only reason I took it back is because i couldnt go to the party because I was ill and had no other need for it
04 November 2019

This dress hides a multiple of sins and makes me feel fantastic
04 June 2019
Stunning dress. Bought for my daughter who has a 5’4” curvy, size 10 figure. Detail makes it sit beautifully over her curves. Just about the right length if she wears a medium heel shoe but otherwise would need shortening. Colour (scarlet) is rich and flattering. Love it!
30 May 2019
Lovely, well-made dress that fits well.
20 May 2019
Hij stond mooi , kleed slank af maar te over dressed voor de gelegenheid

30 March 2019
I LOVE IT an amazing dress
08 March 2019
Bought this dress for an upcoming wedding. Absolutely gorgeous. Both the front and back look stunning. Was a bit worried that the red was a bit bright but when it arrived it is a slightly deeper colour than shown.
28 February 2019
Beautiful dress, true fit, the length was good with heels, I’m 5’6”, the material was great quality but it just wasn’t scarlet as advertised or like the photographs online, real shame.
27 February 2019
Beautiful comfortable dress suitable for the Oscars!
24 February 2019
Stunning very pleased with it
20 February 2019
The dress is exactly as the photo showed. It is incredibly heavy but that makes it hang beautifully. I am a 12/13 but ordered a 14 as it is so fitted. It fits like a glove and is beautifully cut.
04 February 2019
Lovely quality, drapes very well
29 January 2019

Beautiful dress. Gorgeous colour
10 December 2018
The dress is a lovely colour and is elegant and classy.
10 December 2018
Absolutely gorgeous dress (great for Prom) and the material is so comfortable. I gave this a 4 and not a 5 because there is a layer of material just above the knee that makes it slightly difficult to walk in, but it can be positioned higher up to prevent any hinderence.
10 December 2018
The fit the cut is perfect.
09 December 2018
Thanks for the above dress it came on time but I am missing another one which disappeared for 3 weeks. Please return my money

The most beautiful dress for a ball
27 November 2018
The colour was not as I thought on the website - it looked much more vvid and bright on line than when it arrived. Fitted well but disappointed in the colour, so returned it.
21 November 2018
Gorgeous dress, lovely weight, fits perfectly though a little bit too long, but fortunately I know a lady that will shorted it for me.
20 November 2018
The dress is even nicer in person. Absolutely stunning!
19 November 2018

13 November 2018
Fabulous style & fit the best dress l've purchased in years. Really well designed lovely fabric.
13 November 2018
Loved this dress, very slimming.
08 November 2018
Product was gorgeous but discovered that some of the bridal family has bought the same item so I had to return mine.
06 November 2018
I I bought to wear on my Xmas cruise so haven't worn it yet but I love the way it fits and hangs
01 November 2018
Just what I was looking for. Needed something formal but thick for a winter wedding.
01 November 2018
Lovely dress but too long so have had to return it.
29 October 2018
Beautiful dress which fits like a glove but is very forgiving. Long but just right with heels ( I'm 5'8"). Quality material and lovely warm red colour. Very pleased!
29 October 2018
Very well fitting dress true to size. It hangs beautifully and hides my mum tum very well. Was a bit worried it would be too long, I’m 5.4 and it’s perfect.
26 October 2018
Perfect dress, came quicklyband fitted perfectly
24 October 2018
Beautiful dress very flattering on! Wore it to a formal dinner and received lots of compliments! Would definitely recommend to others for that special occasion!
22 October 2018
20 October 2018
This dress is beautiful. It fits amazingly. And I'm wearing it as my wedding dress to a candle lit ceremony.
18 October 2018
Very nice dress, good fit and hides lumps and bumps. Lovely colour.
12 October 2018
Elegant and flattering, very much a special dress. Lovely fit...made me feel beautiful. Lovely colour, too.
08 October 2018
Fits like a glove, very flattering draping covers a multitude of syns having had 4 big babies. Great length, I’m just over 5ft 6 and need to wear just a small heel which for me is ideal, although you could easily wear a higher one too. I’m not usually a “dressy” dresser but this is a beautiful dress and I felt instantly comfortable in it. I’m actually look8ng forwards to wearing it!
04 October 2018
Beautiful fit just like the pic. Very pleased.
25 September 2018
Lovely dress and good value. I was worried about the reviews which said it was long. I am 5'7" and the style is designed to flow at the back and it comes up slightly at the front. It feels like wearing a real gown and my view is it is the right length for the style. If you are petite I can accept it would feel long. Good fit and the ruffles hide any wobbly bits!
25 September 2018
I love this dress. Saw it with a lady a long time ago and decided I must get one.
21 September 2018
Beautiful deep red dress which fits perfectly and looks really good.
20 September 2018
I love this dress, I read all the reviews and was a bit worried as people said it’s heavy, and quite long. I’m 5’7” and a size 12 it fits perfectly and the length is great for me. If you were shorter then yes the length could be an issue. The fabric is top quality, drapes beautifully it is quite weighty when you hold it, but not noticeable on. I think due to the gorgeous quality of the fabric. So pleased with my purchase can’t wait to wear it.
19 September 2018
Lovely dress and looked great on. Have some baby weight and this dress was flattering as the ruching hid all the right bits! I was a little worried about the length having read some of the reviews as I’m 5ft5 however the length was actually fine with a pair of high heels.
16 September 2018
Perfect fit looks fantastic good quality. I am very happy
10 September 2018
True size. Good quality material and very figure hugging. Looked absolutely amazing on!
21 August 2018
Too deep a red shade for me sorry.
13 August 2018
Far too long. I'm 5'7" and tried with heels and it still dragged on the floor. Who besides fashion models are that tall!!
13 August 2018
too long....................
08 August 2018
Very flattering for my ample size 16 figure....lovely deep red colour (I would normally avoid red but this is a subtle,softer tone)
06 August 2018
Very flattering with amazing quality and fit. Extra little details that make the difference like being fully lined, hooks and eyes where they matter and no skimping on fabric. I zipped this dress up and was ready to go - it was comfy with no fuss or adjustment needed throughout my evening. The dress draped exactly as it should and I had a brilliant night out without worrying. I would most certaily buy it in another colour if it were available.
29 July 2018
Good quality, well fitting dress.
29 July 2018
Beautiful colour and fit on body though a little too long so had to pay dressmaker to shorten it. Petite range would be appreciated.
21 June 2018
Beautiful dress but was too big . Would have liked to exchange for smaller size
19 June 2018
Thus a beautiful and elegant dress. Well worth the price. Looks stunning on
19 June 2018
Amazing dress bought for a ball true to size hides every lump and bump extremely flattering and feminine is a must buy to keep in your wardrobe for a special occasion.
15 June 2018
Lovely dress but this one is designed for the taller, thinner physique. It really did nothing for my 5'5" so have sent it back. The fabric is very nice.
14 June 2018
I liked the front the most but not the back so much. all the ruching seemed to drag the back of the dress. Loved the colour and it was a lovely dress but it felt as if I had a weight hanging at the back so sadly returned.
12 June 2018
Beautiful, flattering, stylish. Such a wonderful gown
05 June 2018
Fits perfect size cart spot on.
04 June 2018
Gorgeous dress. Feels lovely on and true to size. A slightly darker colour than it appears in the photo.
03 June 2018
Perfect for my cruise later this year.
01 June 2018
Beautiful dress, fitted perfectly and looked amazing
30 May 2018
The dress is so flattering and elegant. It will be a timeless addition to my wardrobe. Would love the blue dress (same style) to still be available as I’d buy that one too!
28 May 2018
Lovely Dress good material but I’m only 5 ft 1in tall so it was miles too long . Great shame phase eight do not do different lengths in their evening dresses
21 May 2018
Fits nicely as is flattering in a size 14 hides what I want it to hide perfectly. Can’t wait to wear it.
20 May 2018

Excellent quality for price.
04 December 2017
Beautiful item. Fits beautifully, material lovely, i feel like someone when i wear Phase Eight
27 November 2017
Very flattering style, has a slimming effect! Colour a bit darker than in the picture but that's not a problem for me. Good fit, seems a perfect 14. Only fault for me - it is extremely long. And I'm not short - 5ft 6in. Taking it up will be quite a job as it's a very full skirt, but it will be worth it as in all other respects this is a lovely dress.
08 November 2017
Perfect 💖💖 Beautiful colour and gorgeous fit. Can’t wait to wear it
17 October 2017
So flattering although a darker colour than it looks on the website
29 September 2017
The dress is very good quality and very flattering. The dress is true to the image seen on the website. I really love it and so does my husband, I can't wait to wear it.
26 September 2017
Lovely dress just not suitable for our bridesmaids in the end
19 September 2017
Absolutely beautiful dress very heavy flows beautifully and fits like a glove The colour is beautiful one of many of my purchases can't wait to wear it on my cruise in November
29 June 2017
Gorgeous cut quality fit and design. Great value dress
02 June 2017
Not the quality expected - returned
01 June 2017
Pretty good fit though not perfect on me UK Sized Phase Eight is slightly smaller than Australian Sizes Aus Size 10 is equivalent to UK Size 12
02 May 2017
Dress too heavy, too much material used, and the cloth hangs in odd manner taking the joy out of the dress
30 April 2017
The dress was lovely, fitted well and a good colour, however I had to return it as it was too heavy for the ocassion that I needed it for.
29 April 2017
Beautiful. I shall be wearing this to my son's wedding and I feel fabulous in it

Nice weight, brick red colour and not lurid
09 March 2017

Great dress quality and fit for price paid. Thank you.

09 February 2017
The dress is lovely and I would recommend it for anyone wanting something special. But it is also very heavy. This dress was wanted for my daughters wedding in cyprus later in the year and due purely to the weight will not be suitable even in the early evening heat so it will be returned but please dont be put off if your looking for sonething stunning and heat is not an issue.
03 February 2017
Absolutely gorgeous!
02 February 2017
Good quality, ordered in my usual size but had to return and order size smaller
31 January 2017
It's a well cut dress, very flattering, hangs well and looks beautiful. The size is just as expected which Phase Eight are so very good at. The colour is slightly darker than expected as it is described as scarlet but it's a deeper red which I do like. The only suggestion I would make is that the under layer was made without the side seams as these stand out and slightly spoil the look.

I love this shop. I'm a size 8 pear shape but all their 👗 fit perfectly
