best dress of 2020

Dear Seasalt,

This is the only dress I bought during 2020 despite checking the collections on a monthly basis.
I only buy summer dresses from Seasalt, and you started selling summer dresses extremely late this year.

It is more and more difficult to find straight cut cotton dresses for petite frame.

I think tall people are lucky to find Something from seasalt, they can choose between petite, regular and tall dresses and petite frame women have a big difficulty as all dresses are far too long.
In all brand I am size 12-14petite, for Seasalt I must order 10-12 petite.

Sizes are extremely BIG.

Is this to give the false impression that people can fit into a small size?

Please sell this dress in 5 different prints, I will come back to look for it during 2021 spring.

Well what can I say yet another beautiful dress from Seasalt so pleased I ordered this dress. The fit is perfect, the material is beautiful everything about this dress is amazing I feel like a million dollars in it and that’s only after trying it on when it arrived! Can’t wait to wear it. The colours are amazing lol as you can tell I am so pleased with this dress.
Seasalt is my ‘go to’ site when I need/want a new item of clothing just wished I’d have found this shop years ago !

So Retro - continued

I submitted a review on this absolutely beautiful retro-styled dress some time ago and so far it has not appeared. So disappointing! I so much wanted to let others know that it fits like a glove, and even with my average height it works for me in the tall version. The silhouette of the dress in the longer length is far more flattering too, unless you have a great pair of legs perhaps?! The cut of this dress is really perfection, more like this please!

My only concern with the dress I received was that It can be difficult on dresses with large motifs to match up the top and bottom of the dress so that the pattern works well at the join, and the curse with my photographer's eye is that I do unfortunately spot any colour/shape imbalances! When I did my first attempted review I was wondering whether to try a second dress, but was concerned that I might not improve upon the first one! After a few days thinking about it I did send off for another one, which turned out to be better as regards the balance of motifs. It was also fractionally larger, which I thought would be cooler in the heat and gave the potential for a vest or long-sleeved T-shirt underneath. So definitely worth doing! The cut/silhouette still perfection.

Please note that I have submitted a very positive review of another very different dress, which is also not yet showing on your website. I feel that you might be losing sales on these and other garments if you are putting everyone's reviews on the website so late. So unlike you Seasalt to be less than perfection! You are really such a brilliant company and I only enjoy singing your praises.

Loved the pattern of this dress, but very lightweight for autumn, felt the bodice was cut smaller than the belle dress

So retro!

Fits like a glove, perfect shape and the “tall” length selected was also perfect. I am definitely average height by the way, so the standard length would not have been anything like as good on me.

I was sad that the “tall” length was not available in the shops, partly because I always prefer to buy in a shop (use it or lose it) and partly because I can then select the dress which is best for me, particularly dresses with large patterns, as these patterns can alter the look of the dress depending on where parts of the colours and features fall. That’s the curse of being a photographer, it makes you very aware of composition and balance of colours and shapes!

The dress which arrived through the post this morning has a bit of an issue in the way the pattern falls, as the top and skirt of the dress look like they are made out of different cuts of material, and some shapes/colours are gathered together in a noticeable way. I am not sure whether to try a second dress in the same size but this one fits so perfectly it is tempting to keep it in case a replacement was not so good in size or pattern. I am not deducting a star as this dress may be as near perfect as any large patterned dress can be, and I love it.

Please do more retro styles, they are great. Well done as ever, Seasalt, and how you manage to keep evolving in such an interesting way is an on-going revelation.

Perfect summer dress

This is a lovely and very flattering dress. Fits perfectly, true to size, and a striking print. I don't like skirts that are too full or retro looking, and this is much more grown up. Great weight of fabric for summer, too. Not remotely see-through, and yet lightweight for summer. Very comfortable and stylish. Really happy with the purchase.

The only problem with this dress is that I want to wear it every single day. People might get a little tired of seeing me in it.

Piece of Art

The dress is truly a work of art. The print is beuatiful. It is very unique and the colours are very complementary to my skin tone, eyes, and hair.

The dress fits as if it were tailored made for me. It is one of the most flattering dresses I have ever owned. In autumn, I shall say goodbye to my 50s and start a new decade. This dress makes my figure look as if I am 25 years old again! It is that flattering. (I have the size 10.)

The cotton material is very breatheable (perfect for my clime in the US of outrageously hot and humid summers into autumn months) yet it is not see-through as so many clothes are these days.

The cut and style of this dress is all that a dress ought to be. The arm holes are neither too large nor too small. There is no gaping at the arm holes or around the neck. I love that Seasalt truly understands women and adds pockets to its garments.

Since discovering Seasalt clothing (an a couple of Irish brands), I have stopped buying American brand clothing. The fit, styles, quality of material and craftsmanship are superior. (I only wish that the shipping fee to the US was not so steep, but such is life.)

This dress is perfect for a summer outing in town, a day at the office, a wedding or social gathering.

To say that I love this dress is an understatement.
