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.
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
20 August 2021
The dresses were perfect. Fit of both were great. The catalogue was accurate. Very very pleased with what I ordered
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.
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.
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
Ordered 2 sizes smaller, due to cut of the dress. Perfect. Lovely colour. Nice for loose fit hot weather.
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
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 .
30 June 2021
Nice flowing design. Hangs well.
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 .
23 June 2021
I ordered the midi dress but the swing dress was sent instead which I didn't want.
23 June 2021
I thought it would be a longer dress
22 June 2021
I am very pleased with my dress
15 June 2021
Lovely dress goid fit and very stylish
12 June 2021
Lovely dress, cool but heavy fabric which hangs nicely- not washed yet, but hoping it won’t need much ironing.
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!
28 May 2021
Not that great won’t buy again from phase eight again any time soon, collection too far too long to get to the store and not going to use this company again
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
04 May 2021
Bought for a family get together, the dress was perfect, fitted nicely and a beautiful colour well worth the price
01 May 2021
Lovely style. Colour true to picture online. Good fit although I did order a smaller size than I normally do as it looked like it might be a generous fit. Midi length perfect for 5ft 4” height
26 April 2021

26 April 2021

Nice quality and for a loose style is very flattering. The colour is lovely and will show off a tan great.
19 April 2021
As expected the quality from Phase Eight products.

Liked it xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
23 February 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
03 February 2021
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!

Well made and very good value
