The dress was everything I accepted just perfect
12 December 2020
Love the colour and the style have the green shorter version easy to wear and very flattering
01 December 2020
I was thrilled with this dress, I wish there were more of this style available
18 November 2020
Ordered this as the dress seemed to have good reviews, sadly in reality it felt cheap and was a bad fit, with a weird seam on the skirt crossing the hips, very uncomfortable ( I’m a size 10) The back was absolutely shapeless and hung like a sack... definitely needed a waist seam. The only thing I liked was the colour, but had to return it.

Lovely dress, material falls nicely, can see me getting a lot of wear from this dress
11 September 2020
Caught my eye immediately ! Bright colour and style I was looking for. Material is light and airy and it fits well ! Just hope it washes well !
10 September 2020
Gorgeous dress - buy it in every colour and both lengths....love it
09 September 2020
I love this dress very much that’s why I put 5 stars.
03 September 2020
Fantastically Flattering. Gorgeous Colour. Love this Dress!!!
31 August 2020
I don’t receive my dress!...
28 August 2020
Absolutely beautiful dress, really nicely tailored and fits brilliantly. Very much worth the price and the colour is really lovely, more like a bright coral than red. Every time I wear it, people ask me where I get it.
26 August 2020
Lovely colour and a great style but shapeless at the back. The same yolk at the back would have improved it.
26 August 2020
Fit is not as generous as the image suggests, this runs a little smaller than I anticipated, and as a regular Phase Eight shopper I know I can usually count on the sizing. I love the material and hope with the right underwear I will gain pleasure wearing this dress, which can be dressed up or down
25 August 2020
Lovely colour, material and style, would have preferred a little less fullness at the bottom which is not particularly flattering. The bottone half of dress seems slightly out of proportion to top, however, I am wearing the dress with a belt and very happy with this look.
25 August 2020
Lovely flattering dress. Looks great with wedges to dress up, or dress down with trainers. A great staple for every wardrobe and Im sure I will get lots of wear out of it.
25 August 2020
Well done Phase Eight! As a 60 something I have tried many dresses of this style and this is the first one I’ve worn with a flounced midi skirt and felt fashionable and stylish without looking like a 70’s throwback! The colour verges on the coral and really brightens up my face and the fabric falls beautifully. Thank you for the nice neckline too. Too many dresses at the moment cut you off at the neck and are less than flattering. The dress looks great with trainers and also with summer heeled sandals. Thank you! Worth the money.
22 August 2020
Beautiful dress, unfortunately the style didn't suit me!
18 August 2020
Lovely dress, just as I expected
14 August 2020
If your a pear shape you will need to size up as one of the bands hits you around the bum and hip area and it’s not as loose as it looks. However, it’s a lovely dress and wish they did this version in the green shorter one. Will be a good transitional piece for autumn. Looks great with pumps & denim jacket or dresses up a bit more.
13 August 2020
Beautiful dress, colour is a gorgeous red/orange. The fabric feels really nice next to the skin and sleeves are a great length being 3/4. Size down as its generous I shall enjoy wearing this dress for me its perfect. Thank you phase eight love your quality clothing.
11 August 2020
Great quality and fit! Website needs improving though.
11 August 2020
Lovely material, heavy enough to hang well, but not heavy to wear
10 August 2020
The overall dress was nice but have had to return as the sleeves were too tight, probably should have been more baggy to match the overall dress.
10 August 2020
Lovely dress lovely fit and lovely fabric .
06 August 2020
Lovely fit although slightly long as I’m only 5ft 2
06 August 2020
Nice easy style. Suitable for a variety of occasions. Not quite as full as appears in the picture, but true to size. I wish it was available in blue or green, like the shorter version of this dress
05 August 2020
Perfect summer dress. Floaty and comfortable. Good length.
04 August 2020
Beautiful colour and perfect midi length for me - I am 5 foot 2 .Very stylish and comfortable and looks great with sandals or trainers
03 August 2020
Nice dress, good length, loose, so cool when on. Pattern was ok-ish, think in navy it would have looked classier hence wished the midi length was also sold in navy & green. Mint Velvet did an identical dress but the material and pattern looked far more expensive.
31 July 2020
Delivered on time no hassle packing everything Was as they said very happy lady
30 July 2020
I ordered a size 8 midi but it was absolutely huge and more like a maxi than midi
29 July 2020
Love the color and the fabric. Exactly as I expected so brilliant.
28 July 2020
Lovely material and quality! Returned as didn't really suit me but was a lovely dress!
28 July 2020
The staff in Windsor were ultra helpful they deserve a mention , I wouldn’t have thought of buying this dress without them
27 July 2020
Colour lovely and looked nice on
27 July 2020
Lovely dress! Very flattering shape, really comfortable to wear, and looks great.
23 July 2020
Lovely material and fits really well
20 July 2020
Beautiful dress but I am not keen on the material. I think it cheapens it.However I love the design and colour so I will keep it.
20 July 2020
Just the perfect summer dress!
20 July 2020
Lovely print and flattering fit, highly recommend. Looks great with white trainers
19 July 2020
Good fit and looks good on
18 July 2020
Looks lovely on - even if I don’t look like the model!
17 July 2020
5 stars but sadly had to return as the dress was too big. I have re ordered
17 July 2020
Not a good fit at all sadly.
16 July 2020
Had my order cancelled with no explanation so not very happy
16 July 2020
Very pleased with the dress, lovely material and colour.
16 July 2020
I would have liked this in a version for people 5ft 1 ins. I have had to get it shortened and would have liked the choice.
03 July 2020
Love the dress !!! To long but that’s because I’m short ... so not unusual for me need to shorten the dress
03 July 2020
They have everything I was looking for. Sleeves and a decent length. Nice designs and styling - perfect for hot days.
01 July 2020
Really great dress for keeping comfortable but still smart in summer. Loved the fit. I’m 5’ 3” but didn’t feel it swamped me. I vary between size 10 and size 12 but ordered the 10 as the fit looked generous. The 10's perfect.
30 June 2020
Love the dress, colour style and fit
24 June 2020
good quality and flattering dress. Neckline ok - just - length of sleeves and overall length good for older and larger women who don’t like flashing their flesh. I wish there were more below the knee dresses with sleeves (not full maxis) like this. The print is not too fussy and I like the orangey red colour a lot. I think this will work for lots of different occasions.
24 June 2020
lovely flowy floaty dress with loads of gorgeous comments
23 June 2020
Perfect for summer! Breezy dress for hot weather.
23 June 2020
The fit and quality were excellent
23 June 2020
Lovely dress, comfortable to wear and great colour.
22 June 2020
I have the penele dress in green and love it. I was so happy to see it in red, although this one is midi length and the green is knee length. I absolutely love the colour but haven’t quite decided on the length. To me it seems slightly longer than midi. I’m going to wear it a few times and then decide whether to have it shortened like my green one. It’s a fun, flirty, floaty dress. Gorgeous would recommend - you may just want it shortened slightly.
17 June 2020
Excellent quality and a good fit.
16 June 2020
Light floaty nice neck line and comfortable length of sleeves. Lovely colour and was my treat to myself in lockdown. An any time anyplace dress .
16 June 2020
Beautiful colour, Easy flattering fit and style. I had so many compliments when I wore this. More colours please!
