100% Cotton

A wearable work of art. The evocative illustrated design on our Scenic Spot Dress was created by Seasalt artist, Matt Johnson and inspired by one of our favourite views across Whitesand Bay towards Sennen Cove, with Gwnyver and Cape Cornwall in the distance. It’s woven from fine, breathable cotton voile and fully lined, so it drapes beautifully. This sleeveless style falls below the knee and is finished with a square neck, adjustable straps, slanted side pockets and an invisible side zip. A piece to treasure.

I love it!

The dress is perfect, lovely lined and - after reading other reviews and ordering one size up - fits me perfectly. It’s like wearing a painting

So happy I bought this dress!

This scenic sundress arrived in the Seasalt Collection and being 71 years old, I thought no this is not for you. Then it turned up in the sale and I threw caution to the wind and went ahead and purchased it. I had already bought a similar style dress a few years ago and struggled to get into it, eventually breaking the zip - so I knew to go up from my normal size 8 to a 10.
It looks lovely - now a little loose around the bust but better that way than too tight!

Gorgeous dress!

This is just so beautiful - I was hesitant after reading the other reviews as they said this was daftly tight on the bust, but as I'm 34A, I thought this might fit me, and it does, perfectly. I'm 5'8 and between size 8 and 10 in Seasalt clothes, so I opted for the 10 and it's just right (the 8 would have been too tight). The print and colours are dreamy - really special - and I love that the strips are substantial and adjustable. Beautifully lined too. I love that Seasalt have moved to paper envelopes too, and don't put each item of clothing in a plastic bag - really happy to see this. If you could just move production away from China! Let's hear more about your factories and how these wonderful clothes are made.

We're delighted that you love your Scenic View Dress and thank you for noticing the packaging.
We’ve been working hard to reduce our use of plastic packaging and have made many changes across the business. We've also removed all bubble wrap and plastic sticky tape from our packaging. This has eliminated 18 tonnes of single-use plastics a year from our business!

We appreciate your concerns about manufacturing in China.

There are certain products where it has proven really challenging to find a source elsewhere. Having said that, we now produce elements of our Rain™ collection in Vietnam and are expanding our supply base to offer alternatives where we can.

We believe in a long term commitment to our suppliers. This approach not only ensures we consistently receive the best quality product but it also allows us to develop trust and an in-depth understanding of each supplier and their facilities.

Our teams are in daily contact with our suppliers but, in addition to this, we arrange visits to our suppliers, including those in China, and similarly they come and see us in here in Cornwall. These trips provide the opportunity to review their factories and working conditions.

We have stringent requirements around freedom of association, working environments, wages, legal age of working, hours worked etc. and we are members of the Ethical Trading Initiative . You can find out more detail here: https://www.seasaltcornwall.co.uk/customer/pages/about/our-responsibilities

We also have Seasalt agents who are based in all of the countries where we operate. They are our eyes and ears, meeting our suppliers frequently to help give us a full picture of the situation there.

While we recognise we’re not perfect, we’re working hard to ensure that every worker and supplier complies with our standards and terms of business. We’re not yet able to influence a government, but hope to be able to support individuals, who might, in turn, become influencers.

Best wishes, Seasalt

Beautiful But...

Was so excited to receive with extremely FAST shipping to the USA only to find that my normal size 10 in Seasalt was entirely too tight in the bust (for reference 34DD USA/34F Eur). I could not even get it zipped up from the waist which fit perfectly and knew that a larger size would have been too big from the waste down. Very bummed as I treasure my time in Cornwall and this dress with its pattern would remind me every time worn of the beauty of the Cornish Coast. Sadly I have returned the dress. Perhaps Seasalt could produce this same pattern or similar in a more forgiving jersey fabric or fabric with some stretch in the future? Love Seasalt and will continue to order other items in the future but be careful about this style and fabric.

Beautiful dress

This is a beautiful dress, although the sizing is a bit off. It is very tight at the bust area, I was thinking of sending it back - but because of the beautiful pattern, I won't :). If you're small in the chest area, then i guess the sizing is fine. I wear a 32D bra, so for me this dress is only doable with a top, a bra does not fit under.

Revised Review of 7 August

Wow! So happy! I’d previously ordered this beautiful dress in a size 16 which was too tight on the bust, then ordered it in a size 18 which was far too big all over ... then ... crossed my fingers and ordered it again in a size 16 and this one actually fits! Woohoo!
If you love this dress but are busty, try ordering two in the same size and you might just get lucky.

Beautiful Dress

I love the scene on this dress so much but am bitterly disappointed with the sizing. I’m 5’10” with a 34G/GG bust and usually a size 16 (sometimes a 14 in Seasalt) but the 16 in this is incredibly tight across the bust and the 18 far too big all over. Argh!

It’s a pity

I must agree with most of the other reviews.
The sizing in the bust area is completely wrong, one size is too tight and the next size up is very large.
It is a lovely looking dress. Very disappointed.

Love but too small

I'm so disappointed with this, I'm a size 12 in all Seasalt but when it arrived I couldn't even zip it up. When I ordered this in store I tried on other similar fabric and shape dressed to make sure I recieved the correct size.

I'm now not sure if I need to order a 14 or 16!!
