Good quality very stylish
15 November 2021
Just looked cheap, but I’m older so might look good on a younger person
12 November 2021
Comfortable and stylish to wear
10 November 2021
Didn't fit well. Bit too loose and shapeless for me.
08 November 2021
Hem unequal. hangs down at back to one side. Have sent one dress back but replacement just the same. lining is almost visible at front and then 3 inches off the hem line at back left.
07 November 2021
Loved the quality and fit of the dress
05 November 2021
Really like this but even though fit is fine, buttons are quite small so keep popping open - need to see the button holes to stop this which is annoying
05 November 2021
Fabulous dress, I ordered a 12 and 14 to try. 12 fitted best so I would suggest sizing down if you’re in between. Issue with the buttons which are too small for the holes and popped open easily even though I am small in that region. I resolved the issue by making the holes smaller as I don’t need to undo them to take it on and off. Love the shape of the dress, it hangs slightly longer at the back. Can’t wait to wear it.
05 November 2021
Such a lovely dress and can’t wait to ear it. Love the full lining which helps it to drape beautifully. I am 5’1” and this mini length is a perfect knee length on me. It works because the simple and clever design does not have any ‘length’ indicators such as pockets, waist seam etc. Lots of Phase Eight dresses work like this.
05 November 2021
Poor quality, not much material in the seams, button holes to big for buttons consequently they keep popping open, would not recommend this garment!
05 November 2021
I just love the colours the the very easy fit
28 October 2021
Good fit and love the colour.
11 October 2021
dress was exactly what i wanted. great fit, and very comfortable
10 October 2021
Lovely dress, good fit, very slimming!
30 September 2021
Disappointed with phase eight
24 September 2021
See above plus I’ve got this style now online 2 colours! Think I like it! Good fabric well made
23 September 2021
I already have a blue one. Was trying to order same item in pink. Order went astray
21 September 2021
Flattering dress, very comfy. Looks good with boots, trainers or shoes. Looking forward to the colder weather so I can pop a polo underneath for a different look.
17 September 2021
The dress itself was very nice despite the poor delivery service.
16 September 2021
Perfect fit great service
15 September 2021
Nice dress just didn’t fut
10 September 2021
I haven’t worn this dress yet but will be great for evenings out on holiday. A lovely garment in good quality fabric which hangs well. Pattern subtle and colour very summery. I prefer a below knee length and had worked out before purchase that the length would be suitable for me.
07 September 2021
Beautiful dress, well made, quality fabric.
06 September 2021
Fabulous dress, excellent quality. Great fit and styling.
29 August 2021
Beautiful colour and soft fit and feel to the item. Hides lots of lumps and bumps and makes you feel young and carefree!
28 August 2021
I have mixed up the boxes. My review of the dress in in the previous box and I can't go back. Service was efficient.
28 August 2021
Pretty dress, nice colour. Great design to cover tummy and flatters a plus size
27 August 2021
Just love it. Oh so nice, beautiful colour, fit and design.
26 August 2021
Very large sizing and long. Size down.
26 August 2021
Too big for me. Size down.
20 August 2021
The dresses were perfect. Fit of both were great. The catalogue was accurate. Very very pleased with what I ordered
20 August 2021
Great fit, they look great on. Was worried they wouldn’t I’m and don’t wear dresses and always dress in black track suits. Very happy with my purchases
19 August 2021
Love this dress have it in 5 colours
13 August 2021
Lovely colour, style and fit.
11 August 2021
The dress I ordered was beautiful, looked lovely on, and if it wasn’t so expensive I’d have kept it, but I specifically needed a lightweight summer dress and the fabric was the ‘manmade sweaty type’, so I couldn’t justify keeping it. My menopausal body needs cool, natural fabrics - Phase Eight items are not cheap, so I dont think it’s unreasonable to expect them to use good quality fabric.
05 August 2021
Not enough room under the arms
04 August 2021
Lovely drape and weight to the fabric and would be so cool for the summer with the light cotton lining. I can imagine wearing this for work, lunch or even a summer wedding. Although there is a swing to this dress it gathers in nicely at the waist so doesn't look baggy which was my concern.
04 August 2021
I love it. So handy for summer.
31 July 2021
Nice dress, easy to wear style. Usually wear mine with white sneakers but can be dressed up, too.
31 July 2021
I already had this dress in another colour so searched online for it to find a different colour - lovely turquoise.
27 July 2021
Lovely material and the blue was bright and fresh. When I tried it on I liked it because I thought it looked very cool but my husband said it did nothing for me. After a couple of days I saw what he meant, as I am 5’3” size 10 and it is so flowing it seemed to be wearing me even though it fitted well it looked big. I sent it back as I didn’t feel it would become a favourite and it was quite expensive. Better for tall people I think.
23 July 2021
Lovely summer dress - great fit.
20 July 2021
Lovely dress. Shrunk in the wash first time even though I followed instructions. Would expect better from the price.
20 July 2021
The material suited the style and would have suited any age group and size, wth a wide selection of colours and patterns, in fact I’ve seen another colour in the same style that I am considering buying at the momen
17 July 2021
Beautiful dress great fit and quality
17 July 2021
Ordered 2 sizes smaller, due to cut of the dress. Perfect. Lovely colour. Nice for loose fit hot weather.
16 July 2021
The dress is really flattering and is a stunning colour. It is just what I wanted.
13 July 2021
I absolutely love this dress I have the shorter one from last season snd bought the midi one this season the fit and cut is so flattering it’s a winner
08 July 2021
It is exactly as seen on the website. Colour and fit are great.
06 July 2021
This is a really stylish lovely dress. The material is very nice. Unfortunately l had to return it as it was to long for me. I am 5ft 4in. It would spoil the look if l shortened it. Think l will go for the shorter version in the blue.
06 July 2021
it is a lovely dress and colour is nice
05 July 2021
I liked the dress but the hidden buttons all the way down the front gape and are ridiculously difficult to close
01 July 2021
This is a lovely dress , a gorgeous colour and very flattering for such a loose style . I went to a size 10( normally a 12 ) having read the other reviews and it’s a great fit , I’m 5:4 “ and it’s a lovely length . I love it .It’s a lovely fabric , feels heavey and falls /swishes well !
01 July 2021
This is very suitable for my “lockdown “ extended middle as it covers up all the bulges without clinging on them at all. Very comfortable.
01 July 2021
Dress is a beautiful fit . Will definitely get a lot of wear out of it .
01 July 2021
I have the same dress in a different length and love it and it wash’s well
30 June 2021
Nice flowing design. Hangs well.
27 June 2021
Love this dress. Fits perfectly, true to size. I ordered a size 14. Great summer dress in beautiful material which hangs well. Love the colour.
26 June 2021
The dress looked enormous before I tried it on but, actually, it’s quite flattering. Simple and easy ,breezy to wear on a summer’s day. The fabric is quite lightweight and has a good feel. Very pleased with my purchase and I am sure that it will get lots of wear. It’s a size 10 (not 14) ,finishes at the bend of my knee. I’m 5’1”.
24 June 2021
Great dress so comfy you can wear it as a summer dress or add a top underneath even looks good with boots .
24 June 2021
Loved the dress on, perfect Threw away all the packaging, washed the dress as the instructions and it shrank in the wash making it too short for me to wear
23 June 2021

10 June 2021
Product as I saw in the shop.
09 June 2021
I bought the blue version in Saffron Walden store and ordered the bright pink online. Easy design, very flattering colours, good sleeve length. Not too low (I am very petitie and some dresses can be too low at front).

Just didn’t suit me. Returned.
04 June 2021
Poor finish, loose threads. One button fell off when I undid it to try dress on. However, very pretty, but it wasn’t kingfisher blue. It was pink.
04 June 2021
This is a beautiful dress. I love the fabric and the way it falls. I ordered a size smaller than usual on the strength of others’ reviews and it fits perfectly. My favourite dress!
02 June 2021
Beautiful colour, length and fabric lush

26 May 2021
Lovely dress - but size is very large. I tried a 16 in the shop and it was too big - I ordered a 14 - that was also too big.
25 May 2021
I like the style and the fit feel the dress will need a slip, it would be better if it was lined
25 May 2021

My previous dress was lovely and I’m sure I’ll get extra wear with the blue this year. Material washed well. Good quality.
22 February 2021
Glad to see the Penele midi dress back this season. Very stylish, nice material and hides the extra bit of lockdown weight without having to go up a size! Looking forward to wearing it this spring and summer.
22 February 2021
Well made, good quality. Sadly only in Black which did not suit my colouring. I would have liked a choice of lengths as this one was too long. It would have needed a good press had I kept it.
22 February 2021
Everything about this style is so wearable Suitable fir everyone Washes well and dries quickly A perfect comfortable dress Comes in lots of colour ways
22 February 2021
So happy with this dress and it’s style Suitable for everyone all shapes and sizes Have lots of this dress in different colours all fabulous

Love this dress! So versatile - wearing with leggings and a t-shirt underneath now but will be perfect for the warmer weather as well. Dress is really flattering, washes well - just hang it up afterwards and it doesn't need ironing.
02 February 2021
i bought the red one last summer and it was just perfect. Right material, right length, cool and airy....so as soon as i saw this black one i didn't hesitate. Wonderful with my lockdown apple figure...skims where it should!
29 December 2020
Well made and very good value
