Loved the look of the dress in the photos and the fabric was great.
Other reviews said it was a relaxed fit and not too tight so I wasn’t expecting a fitted dress. It was huge. I ordered a size 10 but the fit was more like a size 18 .... perhaps it was mislabelled? The size 10 tunic I ordered at the same time is fantastic.

Dear Mononoke242,

Thank you for your review of the Mill Pool Dress but I'm sorry to hear that the fit wasn't perfect for you this time. Some of our garments are deliberately designed to be oversized. We'll detail this next to the product and we'd generally recommend ordering your usual size, the garment should fit and drape beautifully.

If you haven't already done so, you can pop it back to us using the free post label enclosed in your parcel. We have a 'no quibble' refund policy so we'll arrange your refund just as soon as we receive it.

Do take a look at our other dresses [], we're sure you'll find another one that you'll love.

If it helps, we list detailed measurements on the tab next to each garment, or if you prefer, our customer service team would be pleased to help with specific sizing queries.
Call 01326 640075 or hop onto a chat at

Best wishes,
The Seasalt Team

too small

Lovely dress though for me it was too thick for the summer, but the sizing did not correspond to the winter dresses I bought in a similar style. Will have to return it unfortunately.

Short sleeved Mill Pool dress

Absolutely LOVED this dress but had to return it as it was far too short and I am only 5’2”! It is more tunic length than dress length. SO very disappointed - PLEASE think about your older customers who want a cool, loose fitting summer dress but don’t want to flaunt their thighs and knees! Fingers crossed for next season.

I love this dress! It literally saved my life in 103degree heat on a trip to Boston USA as it was light,cool,and floaty.A dream to pack and so easy to wash.Also smart enough for smart/casual dining out with accessories.So pleased that I have just ordered the long sleeved version for an early autumn trip.The perfect travel dress.Well done Sea salt!

Love this dress

This is the second short sleeve dress I have bought in this style and have also bought the long sleeve one. The length is great for me as I am 5 foot in my thick socks!
The dresses wash beautifully and don’t go out of shape
Please do more of these dresses I love them

Too short

This dress is too short and looks more like a nightie than a dress. Not worth the money!

Wonderfully comfortable dress, but....

I just loved this dress in so many ways, the fabric, the fit, the pockets. They were all spot on but I am nearly 70 and don't want to show so much leg (I am a larger customer). Please offer a longer length and I will buy in all colours. I have kept the similar version with long sleeves which has two length options.
Pleeeease think about this for next season. I was so disappointed that I had to return the dress.

Love these dresses

Absolutely love this range of dresses, so comfortable, always a good fit and they wash up really nice. The delivery was quick, the dresses came with a strange stain on the inside tag that smelt a bit odd but washed right out and wasn't on the dress anywhere else so did not bother me. Looking for more patterns and colours to add to my collection.

Too big

Lovely material, a nice weight, however very large and far too short as a dress for me,
