Really pretty dress but just not enough fabric in the seams to allow for movement. The dress is plenty big enough in size and roomy, but the back seam has pulled after 2 wears
15 September 2020
Such a comfortable dress, so good for evenings and in between seasons. I love the dress so much that I’ve also purchased the red and the black!

08 August 2020
Lovely dress too long for me
07 August 2020
Love the style, it’s a great through on and go. The colour is fantastic and the fabric cool against the skin although a little thicker than I thought. Size as expected.
07 August 2020
Love the dresses. I have had a double mastectomy and it is hard to find clothes that don't show that I've got no boobs. Very happy with this purchase. Thank you.
06 August 2020
Great dress really pleased have just ordered in another colour
05 August 2020
Very pretty dress and lovely colour but too short even for a 5ft 4in lady of mature age.
05 August 2020
The dress was slightly to big & longer than I expected. I will wear it but need to take up the hen by about 2 inches first. Lovely colour, slighter darker green than shows in the pictures. Would have gone for size 10 but unavailable so went for 12.
04 August 2020
Really lovely. I ordered the 18 on line which was too big and bought the 16 in store. Lovely soft fabric, colour and flattering fit.
03 August 2020
Gorgeous dress and colour, but sadly too big.
03 August 2020
Been looking for a nice summer dress with a good print and found the perfect thing in this dress.
02 August 2020
Lovely flattering dress. Love the neckline and the way it hangs.
02 August 2020
Love this dress! BUT after wearing once I noticed a flaw in the material that is turning into a hole. Gutted! Sending back.
31 July 2020
Lovely floaty summer dress
29 July 2020
So pretty, lovely material, not clingy and very flattering!

Lovely fabric and comfy loose fit. I ordered a size down due to reviews from other customers which proved helpful.
27 July 2020
Good quality material,perfect fit and drapes so well. I will really enjoy wearing it
27 July 2020
Nice style and colour. Not short length on but still looked nice
27 July 2020
Liked the fact that it was as described
26 July 2020
Easy to wear, comfortable fit, love the green colour, washes well but a bit faffy to iron
26 July 2020
A lovely dres. Very comfortable to wear. It’s a little on the big side but because of the style it works. A little low at the v neck opening but that is probably because I am only 5’. I love it so much so that I have ordered a blue dress but in a size 8.
25 July 2020
Love the colour and style. I went down a size and the fit was good.
25 July 2020
This dress hangs beautifully and can be dressed up with heels or down with pumps or flip flops. Following advice from other reviews I dropped a size and it fits perfectly
25 July 2020
The dress is even better than I expected - just lovely!
24 July 2020
Pretty dress and nice quality. I sometimes have to order a size 14 in phase eight dresses but the size 12 fit perfectly. I’m 5ft 2 and it sits just on my knees.
24 July 2020
Fits well, lovely material for summer, I like the sleeve length, me being an older woman and the length is just about right.
24 July 2020
Fab fit, style and length. Being 5ft 10 I was worried that the style would be too short but it stops just above the knee.
23 July 2020
comfortable, flattering ad versatile - easy care - love it
23 July 2020
Such a lovely dress I actually bought this in red too! It doesn't feel oversized, it is actually very flattering.
23 July 2020
Love this style and colour
22 July 2020
Lovely versatile dress, great colour,, pleased with the fit.
21 July 2020
Looks great on! The green colour is gorgeous against my brown skin. I’ve ordered the red too. The fabric is light and flowing and the fit is nice and loose for warm summer days - the gathering/pleats sit really well. A modern stylish fit for Phase Eight - happily surprised!
21 July 2020
Lovely colour and material. It’s very a very flattering and easy to wear style. Get the next size down from your usual size. I love this dress.
20 July 2020
I love this new dress. It’s loose and comfortable to wear but the drapy fabric still shows off your figure.
20 July 2020
Dress is super flattering and easy to dress up/down. Fit is true to size and appearance is as in the photo.
20 July 2020
Beautiful garment well made fits perfectly size 10 . I intend to wear it on Friday 24th July for my birthday social distanced garden party. I love the colour which is green. I would not normally choose this .I should also like the blue version here wishing
19 July 2020
Loved this however didn’t fit well so will be returning (problem was my size not the dress)
18 July 2020
Perfect for my needs. Fun dress. Pretty print.
18 July 2020
Lovely dress, but unfortunately too short for me. Had to return.
17 July 2020
Its pretty but not for me. I just felt frumpy in it and also, the green was more of a bottle green rather than the brighter green on the website picture. The fabric felt like nylon to me - I mean I know it isn't nylon but that's what it felt like - not as expensive a fabric as the write up would suggest.
17 July 2020
Unfortunately I had to return as it was too big. It was lovely though.
17 July 2020
Dreadful fit I'm sad to say.
16 July 2020
Lovely print and fabric but in the pictures it looks like it is a lot shorter which I would have preferred, it is about knee length on me and I prefer either short or long
16 July 2020
Lovely dress. Very pleased with my purchase. Fit is good. Not too volumous and length is good on a me (5 ft 3")
16 July 2020
Bought this to wear to a BBQ party we are going to . It's very different from what I'd normally wear & but for the fact that I have to have it shortened I absolutely love it . Can be dressed up or down , hides a multitude of sins & I love the three quarter length sleeves . Have preordered the red version .
13 July 2020
Gorgeous dress. Went down a size due to the style and it fits perfectly. At 5ft, I struggle with dresses but this comes just above the knee plus the sleeves fit too.
11 July 2020
Perfect fit and good value
08 July 2020
Lovely fit and lovely colour
08 July 2020
Fits really well love the colour
06 July 2020
Looks good on - right length -I'm 5'6 .
06 July 2020
This is a really lovely dress. Good to have the different colour options. So flattering. A real find. I bought the the blue one, too, as I like it so much.
06 July 2020
Fabulous dress!! The perfect dress - really stylish, nice fabric and can be dressed up or down. Am considering buying all the colours! Comes up quite big so buy a size down.
01 July 2020
I ordered both this and the red midi version. I love both so have kept them both - comments same as for the red one. This shorter one finishes just above my knee (I’m 5’ 3”) and that was exactly what I wanted.
30 June 2020
Perfect dress for slightly cooler summer days and can be worn casually with trainers or dressed up and worn with heels
23 June 2020
I love this dress as it’s a change from my usual summer dresses. I’m only 5’ 1” and it’s just on my knee. I went down a size as the swing of the dress was too voluminous for my height.
23 June 2020
This dress is lovely well worth buying
23 June 2020
Very pretty dress , flattering
22 June 2020
Feels lovely on and great fit
22 June 2020
Loved the dress but didn't keep as I realised it was very similar to a dress I have already
22 June 2020
Lovely little dress that’s easy to wear. I’m a size 8 to 10 and the 8 fitted perfectly. Looks great with trainers or sandals for a spring/summer daytime outfit. Love it.
19 June 2020
Was really pleased with the quality of the fabric. I am a size 12 but was quite happy with a size 10
18 June 2020
It’s a great shape for my shape: super flattering!
18 June 2020
I love this dress, as it covers a multitude of overweight lockdown sins. It’s very comfortable and a gorgeous colour. It can be worn casually or dressed up.
17 June 2020
Love it. I've only tried it on so far but it felt really comfortable and just the right length for me and my 5ft 2" frame.
17 June 2020
Fits perfect as I imagined, colour fresh anyway wear. Love the colour
17 June 2020
Lovely dress/ colour/ print and very nice styling - slimming despite the full shape - good length for me 5'4 - just over the knee.

16 June 2020
Lovely dress great style material a little heavy for now but excellent otherwise
15 June 2020
It is just as lovely as I hoped it would be
12 June 2020
Love this dress. It's floaty but still have structure with the waist line and the pleat at the front so I don't end up looking like I'm wearing a bag in my curvy frame.
10 June 2020
Love this dress. Really good quality, great fit and very flattering, perfect for dressing up or down.
08 June 2020

A lovely spring dress which will be a go anywhere dress
24 March 2020
Fresh eye catching colour, loose fit which I like so will be cool and comfortable. I have completely fallen for it and I feel really good in it when I try it on. It is different from anything I have had in the past from Phase Eight. I am now all ready for the occasion for which I bought it.

01 March 2020
Great fit
28 February 2020
came up slightly larger than expected, had to get the next size down. Would have been superb, if it'd had pockets.

Unusual outerwear style. Really practical but stylish. Good for most seasons
