23 July 2021
Lovely summer dress - great fit.
22 July 2021
Button holes too loose, had to sew them up tighter to prevent them coming undone otherwise it would get a 5.
17 July 2021
Beautiful dress great fit and quality
05 July 2021
Buttons gape and are impossible to open/close
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
I have the same dress in a different length and love it and it wash’s well
01 July 2021
The dress is a winner for me. I purchased the Penele Swing Dress last summer in a light red/white fabric and got lots wear out of it. This current one in leopard print could be worn all year around with different tights/footwear, etc. I read the reviews and ordered a size up from my summer one and that was the right thing to do. It hangs really well and does what it says on the tin - it really does swing when you wear it.
30 June 2021
Nice weight of fabric, cut true to size.
27 June 2021

Lovely dress and have the summer version in red and the 10 is a perfect fit. This however is at least 3 inches smaller in the bust and was much too tight,

03 January 2021
i had previously bought this style in the autumn in green and found it gaped a bit. I loved the swing dress style so bought this one in a size 14 and it looks a feels and looks great. I love the colours.
31 December 2020
Easy to wear shift dress, great print. Now I own two Penele dresses!
30 December 2020
Dress fitted well and suitable for any occasion ... wedding..christening ... funeral. Or just going out for dinner at a nice restaurant.

Fabulous. Stylish and comfy
29 December 2020
Very comfortable, easy style to wear
28 December 2020
Great little dress to dress up or down
23 December 2020
Beautiful dress it fits well and I am looking forward to wearing it on many occasions I really like the print and the material
16 December 2020
I'm over the moon with this dress. It is a generous fit but I like how it drapes over my lumps and bumps. I'm approx 5ft 6" and it comes to just below my knees. It's a lovely weighted crepe type material. I plan to wear with my opaque tights and R&B platform sneakers. I love it so much I've bought it in two other colours.
15 December 2020
Sizing is poor and I am not impressed as I have always brought a size 10 with phase eight
14 December 2020
Dress is very flattering for the fuller figure. Nice quality material which can be worn any time of the year, either with tights or without.
13 December 2020
This is a lovely dress but it is cut far too narrow under the arms. I bought the green one in the summer, same size but far better fit.
08 December 2020
The Penele dress fits perfectly. Its a great length and hangs really well. It is true to size and I shall wear in the winter with tights and in the summer with trainers or sandals. Will be ordering in another colour.
05 December 2020
Fab dress and good quality
04 December 2020
Great style great fits love it
02 December 2020
Beautiful quality but may need to order a bigger size, but fabulous length can be dressed up with tights and heels or down with leggings and boots
28 November 2020
I love this, I bought it in three different colours to try on, I don't think this b/w is my favourite as it's a bit simple, but it's a lovely style and you can easily dress it up with a belt. NB: its a proper shirt dress, with buttons going down all the way to the bottom, which isn't quite obvious from the photos.
25 November 2020
Great for when I get back to the office
19 November 2020
Thicker material than expected and too long for me, wanted it shorter otherwise would have probably kept
17 November 2020
Love the quality fabric and colour
07 November 2020
Flattering, perfect work wear. Smart and comfortable. Excellent fit.
02 November 2020

Such a lovely dress and comfortable to wear
31 October 2020
Lovely dress much better than in the on line picture. Excellent quality material.
28 October 2020
Love the style and fit I’m only 5ft so the length is just right for knee high boots and above the ankle boots 👢 that are so in fashion at the moment.
26 October 2020
Very happy with the the dress I ordered...fits perfect,, and quality is good,, well worth every penny..
25 October 2020
Love it! Super comfy, stylish - can dress up or down.
23 October 2020
Nice, well presented online.
21 October 2020
I love these style of dresses and will be adding more to my wardrobe. The style is great for a more voluptuous figure and is very flattering. This is great to dress up and for a more casual style
18 October 2020
Love this dress have had so many compliments! Material excellent quality, can be worn with ankle boots for heeled shoes, both looks are great!
16 October 2020
Nice colours for autumnal fashion.
16 October 2020
I love this dress it is roomy at the front but very slightly tight around the back area. This is probably due more to my body shape. It is a very comfortable dress.
14 October 2020
The dress is just lovely and even better than my previous purchase of this particular dress
14 October 2020
This is a nice modern dress that can be dressed up or down depending on how you want to wear it. Relaxed fit and comfortable it could be worn on any number of occasions. Great print too.
13 October 2020
Fits nicely and can be dressy or dressed down
13 October 2020
I love the colours and fabric, good quality, hangs really well. Looks good with boots, even looks good with dressy flip flops.
12 October 2020
Lovely dress perfect fit, sleeve length is good the quality of the fabric is fabulous it feels expensive the length is just on my knee wearing with black tights and boots had lots of comments
12 October 2020
Loved the colour and style of the dress but the fit wasn't good and varied a lot from the fit of the same address in blue. Had it been a bit looser all over I would have kept.
06 October 2020
Great up to date trend in colour. Fantastic fit
01 October 2020
Really pleased, not often I get something that fits without alterations. I love it
30 September 2020
Lovely dress good quality fits well
30 September 2020
Really flattering dress, quite often this style of dress on me can look like a sack of potatoes!
29 September 2020
Lovely dress. Fits perfectly.
29 September 2020
The dres was just what I hoped it would be.
28 September 2020
I've not worn this yet, but fell in love with it when I saw it on line. Decided to try it on in store and bought it there and then. Very pretty and can be layered up when it gets colder.
28 September 2020
Love the dress smart, comfortable
27 September 2020
Lovely staff. A pleasure to shop in the ilkley store.
25 September 2020
Beautiful dress , hangs well and is a very flattering shape . It does seem to be quite a small fit and pulls very slightly across my bust . I’m usually a 14/16 and the bought the 16 . It’s definitely worth sizing up particularly if you are on the ***** side like me
24 September 2020
Although this was a fab dress I just changed my mind as I had something similar in my wardrobe already
23 September 2020
Lovely dress, loved the colour but unfortunately I had to return it as it was I found the fit small
23 September 2020
Really flattering - love it
22 September 2020
Because I loved it! Fits true to size.
21 September 2020
I have this dress in other colours and was looking forward to this one but same size as before but cut too tight under the arms....also fabric is too hard
21 September 2020
Very versatlie and flattering dress.
21 September 2020
Lovely and useful dress. Look forward to wearing it.
21 September 2020
I bought the longer version of this dress in the summer, and loved it, hence buying this version for the autumn. I ordered a size 10, which I had before and the fit was perfect, however this dress is much smaller and really tight across the sleeves and bust. Very disappointed.
21 September 2020
Lovely dress, I usually get a 14. I have kept it but thought it seemed a small fit.
18 September 2020
Love the dress and has worn better than the other 2 I bought
15 September 2020
Great dress, excellent quality and fit .
15 September 2020
I love this dress, it fits well, I am only 5ft tall and it comes below my knees but isnt too long, the colour is perfect too.
15 September 2020
Lovely dress very stylish, cool and elegant for this hot weather. Bought the dress in three colours.
14 September 2020
Fits beautifully. Really easy to wear. Ideal for work.
14 September 2020
Great style. Got this in an 18 as the material has no give in it (would usually go for a 16) but it's still tight under the arms and across the chest and I've not changed size! A lot smaller than average.
14 September 2020
It was not what I expected
13 September 2020
Just totally perfect fit , style love the colour
11 September 2020
So comfortable, great fit
10 September 2020
Just love this dress brought it in Red for the summer also.
10 September 2020
Perfect dress - buy it in every colour and both lengths - it's fab
09 September 2020
I like this dress very much, I already have it in a different colour. This one seemed tighter than the one I already have, so I had to return it.
09 September 2020
I have the longer midi red version. I love the shorter version for autumn which I can wear with tights and boots. Couple of tips... if your a size 14 pear shape then you need to size up to a 16. The cut hits you at thigh and I found the 14 a bit snug on the thigh. Also read the washing instructions.. you need to iron this whilst it’s damp. I know I’m going to get a lot of wear out of it. The only thing that would make it more perfect would be pockets.
09 September 2020
Too tight for me across the bust. Styling not as loose as I expected. I usually buy the same size and it's consistent, but not on this occasion.
09 September 2020
Great style, can be dressed up or down. Lovely fabric.
08 September 2020
Love the style and fit. Easy to wear.
08 September 2020
I love Phase Eight clothes and it came upto all my expectations.Great fit and can be worn in the winter with black leggings and sweater.
07 September 2020
Lovely easy comfortable dress
07 September 2020
Lovely dress but the colour just didn't suit me
04 September 2020
Beautifully floaty dress. The material is slightly more sheer than I was expecting but still really lovely and definitely a new wardrobe favourite!
03 September 2020
Lovely dress,true to size.
03 September 2020
Shame I had to return this item - Lovely dress but didn't fit across the bust? Hence the 4 stars - Appreciate we have all been grassing while the lockdown but its the bum and hips that's spread not the bust...
03 September 2020
Have tried all summer to purchase the summer penele without success so ordered the winter one and then found the summer ones back!! However I have kept the winter one instead. I like the way you specify the.height of the model as I am short and it is a great help to me when ordering.
02 September 2020
A lovely fit and great length on me. I’m only 5.1”. Looks great with a belt too!
02 September 2020
Bought this dress for my daughter she loves it!
02 September 2020
Great dress, comfortable and stylish
31 August 2020
Very pleased with all aspects
25 August 2020
Lovely dress, so easy to wear, always get compliments when wearing it
24 August 2020
Easy to wear for summer or winter with leggings or thick tights. Good length just above the knee.
21 August 2020
Very pleased with the fit and material. Have bought it in the green and the midi in red. Great for day or evening wear.
17 August 2020
great dress - lovely fit.
14 August 2020
It didn't hang well and the gathered lower part was a poorly designed addition as the upper skirt was not A shape. Colour and print was lovely.
08 August 2020
Lovely dress but not short enough for me
08 August 2020
Great loose but stylish dress
08 August 2020
A very smart and versatile dress which I feel I can wear anywhere.
07 August 2020
Very pleased with dress very comfortable lovely material went for a smaller size as per reviews. I purchased the navy dress as it will take me through to Autumn
03 August 2020
Lovely dress, very pretty, and great fit.
31 July 2020
Like the dress, have bought it in the other colours . The navy material is a bit harsh ....not as soft as the similar green PENELE dress. I hope this dress is repeated next year but in slightly softer material.
31 July 2020
Love this dress that I now have it in all three colours!
29 July 2020
Love this dress - so comfy and stylish too! My only comment would be that it is worth dropping a size for a better fit. I originally bought my normal size and it was like a tent. Had to take it back and exchange for a smaller size.
24 July 2020
Definitely not for me, much to much material, made me look bigger than I am! Returned...
24 July 2020
Excellent dress. Fits lovely.
23 July 2020
This dress is so comfortable and easy to wear. It does not look too 'dressy' but could be dressed up for an evening out. Chose a size 8 instead of my usual 10.
23 July 2020
Lovely dress Have had lots of compliments
17 July 2020
Stunning love it beautiful dress
17 July 2020
A lovely dress well designed for the British summer as the fabric is thick and heavy. I bought the blue, which is a very dark blue that almost looks black when teamed with black. I tried it on with thick tights and biker boots, which would look good in the autumn/winter. A good length to wear to the office but also looks lovely with trainers to use casually. I would have bought the green also but I was told that the order couldn’t be fulfilled
17 July 2020
Dreadful fit I'm sad to say.
16 July 2020
Great dress for all occasions. Can be dressed up or downing is very comfortable to wear.
16 July 2020
Light weight right length for short women
14 July 2020
This is a very flattering, chic little dress. It can be worn day or night and is really comfortable to wear. I would have given it 5 stars if it had pockets! I’m usually between a 10 and a 12, but the size 10 fits me perfectly.
