Brenda Dress

The style of this dress is perfect for me. It is comfortable to wear and I love the fabric.

Lovely style

I really like the style and fabric of this dress. It isn’t quite the colour green as I expected but I still like it. It has been too cold to wear yet.

Gorgeous but sizing an issue?

I love the style and the gorgeous fabric of this dress and pockets are always a bonus for me. I’m a shortie so very pleased it’s available in petite.
My only slight issue is sizing, I’m normally a 12 in Seasalt dresses but have a 34e bust and when there are buttons, as in this dress, a 12 can be too tight, so I ordered the 14 for comparison. I couldn’t even faster the 12 and the 14 is only just ok. The result being that the skirt area is a little more voluminous as it’s bigger than I would normally wear. I’m keeping it though as it will be wonderful for summer events when we’re allowed.
Sizing is a problem though as I’m a 10 in the Rose Trellis jumpsuit, with plenty of room and that’s also buttoned at the top - yes it’s a more relaxed fit but it’s inconsistent and frustrating to be unsure what size to order and to send things back if you order two for comparison.

Not for me

I have a lot of Seasalt dresses in size 10 but this one didn't fit. It was large on the shoulders but uncomfortably snug around the waist and the pleats didn't lay flat over the hips. I compared it to other cotton waisted summer dresses from Seasalt and it was between 5 and 10 cms smaller around the waist. I am 5 foot so ordered petite fitting but it barely covered my knee. The whole effect was distinctly unflattering. The green colour was also darker than I expected so I returned it.

Perfect afternoon tea dress

Good fit, lovely soft cotton fabric, great colour (although a little darker than the picture I can see on the website). I may have to do some upper arm exercise though as the sleeves are slightly tight. I will be wearing this to a friend's Summer birthday afternoon tea. I just need to choose a cardigan and some shoes and that's my outfit sorted! I wish it came in different fabrics, hint hint!

Beautiful dress

A beautiful vintage style dress. Lovely fabric, colour and design. Unfortunately the size 10 was very neat around the waist and the buttons were pulling. I've never not fitted a size 10 in clothes from any purchase of clothing so was puzzled. The size 12 was too big. Both dresses returned sadly. However, I've just bought the Brenda dress with the sailboat design, size 10 and it fits perfectly.

Lovely dress

Lovely summer dress with a vintage look. Soft light material and well made. I yoyo between a 12/14 and after reading other reviews I decided to get the 14, especially due to the button front. I am glad I did. This is a snug fit around the chest and the 14 fits comfortably, but I think the 12 would have been too tight. I already know this dress going to be a favourite this summer.

Perfect dress!

I bought the Brenda dress with jumbo boats from a local shop, and I absolutley love it! The fit, the fabric, the pockets and the pattern! Got so many nice comments on my dress. I'm normally a size 12 in Seasalt but now I bought 14. It was the last dress in my shop, and I like that it is a little roomier in the summer. I've also worn it with a cardigan. Thank you for this lovely dress Seasalt!

Fit too small

This is a Lovely dress but my normal size came up too small and unfortunately the next size up was too big! What a shame I have never had this problem before. Reluctant return.
