I have always wanted a gorgeous shimmery dress that wasn’t too structured or overly formal. This dress is comfy to wear and totally party proof.
05 November 2019
Lovely dress although very long
01 October 2019
Dress fits well and is well made.
11 September 2019
Good fit and length. Very sparkly! Carpet looks like a fairy has visited!
19 April 2019
This is a well cut, flattering dress. I nearly kept it but in the end didn't for two reasons: the glittery bits come off everywhere (and that was just trying it on) and it was pretty but quite safe and unexciting - I was after something with a bit more 'wow' for the event I'm going to.
17 April 2019
Size true to size, good fit
09 April 2019
Beautiful dress but too long again. I have had to have two other long dresses taken up & I am 5 foot 6 inches
21 March 2019
Nice dress. But shape would suit someone younger than me! really nice long length.
08 February 2019
Being 5ft 10in tall I find it hard to get a maxi dress that is actually the right length but this fits perfect can't wait to wear it on the cruise
30 January 2019
The dress is very long so I am going to have to shorten it. My previous dresses from Phase Eight were too long also
20 January 2019
Excellent quality and fit
12 December 2018
Gorgeous but a bit shapeless for me!
11 December 2018
Lovely dress but didn't think it flattered my shape as made me look very *****! Also too long. Why does everything have to be so long?
08 December 2018
Elegant and simply stylish but so comfortable to wear. Very special.
08 December 2018
Lovely dress but soooooo long. I’m average height and it trailed over floor; gutted! Wish they did a version an inch shorter!
08 December 2018
Lovely dress but not a good fit. I am usually size 14 but ordered a size 16 after measuring myself following your sizing guidelines. The dress fitted well around the waist but was too big around the bust and it gaped under the arms. It was also far too long so would have needed shortening. I took it back to the shop hoping to try a size 14 but there were none in stock by then. It would have been good value for money if it had fitted.
08 December 2018
Nice fit. Not too long. Lovely glitter effect
05 December 2018
Nice dress but sparkle/glitter comes off on your hand and leaves a trail on the floor. It’s stretchy which is good but too long even with heels, I’m 5ft 4. I have decided to keep it as it was half price. Wouldn’t pay full price for it.
03 December 2018
Beautiful dress looks stunning on and great price
01 December 2018
Great accessory piece. Went well with the matching necklace
01 December 2018
good fit, flattering shape. Sparkle in material makes it great for parties, dancing and new year event. Very long needed 6 inches taken off (although I am only 5’5”)
01 December 2018
A beautiful dress, actually nicer in reality than in photo on website. Fully lined and great quality.
01 December 2018

30 November 2018

30 November 2018
Beautiful dress. Excellent fit
29 November 2018
The dress was everything I expected, exactly as picture. I am only 5ft 1 and will need to get the dress altered that is my only compliant.
27 November 2018
Lovely dress fits well looks good
26 November 2018
It is the perfect fit! Very flattering.
22 November 2018
l needed an evening dress for a special occasion and they helped me find one that looks beautiful on me.
21 November 2018
Based on trying it on - it hasn't been out for an occasion yet
21 November 2018

16 November 2018
Beautiful shimmer and great fit
15 November 2018
Nice dress. True to size.
13 November 2018
I love the coloured sparkles in this dress, though be aware the fabric feels a little rough, but not too scratchy. I’m very curvy at the top and usually this wraparound waist style is very flattering on me. I felt this dress was not as forgiving as others I’ve bought from Phase Eight, maybe it’s a little too snug in the bust area. Having said that I do like the overall impression it creates and it will come in useful on my forthcoming Christmas Cruise, which was the reason for this purchase. It’s the perfect Christmas Cruise party dress! Please beware it’s also miles too long on me (I’m 5ft3in) so as usual I’ll have to have it altered.
11 November 2018
great dress for my cruise
09 November 2018
Bought for New Years party. It's beautiful subtle sparkle to suit younger and olderr(I'm 49) The film is flattering and a classic that I can see in my wardrobe for years . So glad I made the purchase and also got it discounted. Well worth the money
01 November 2018
Lovely dress sadly to long for me I'm only 5' 3" otherwise a good fit
31 October 2018
Beautiful dress. Comfortable to wear.
30 October 2018

27 October 2018

27 October 2018
