Lovely but bit snug around the bust

These Wagtail dresses are really lovely. I can vary between an 8 and a 10 in SS but in this dress i found the 8 perfect everywhere except the bust area seemed a bit snug. I think if i sized up to a 10 it would be too voluminous elsewhere, so i decided to keep it as it does fit and i love it. Maybe a good idea would just to make the chest measurements an inch bigger along all the size range?? Also i feel this dress is a bit pricey X

Very flattering

I had to go up a size. Agree with other reviews that usually Seasalt sizes are generous but this was too tight in my size.
The blue is beautifully rich and the needle cord fine and soft. I found the length to be longer on me than on the model - it just covers my knees (I'm 5' 3") but that's a good thing! I'm very pleased with this dress.

Lovely soft fabric

I would have given this dress a 5/5 if not for the very tight fit across the bust... I am a D cup and had to go to an 18 to get a comfy fit. Otherwise I love it.

Very cute dress

Love this dress with its pintuck details and sweet pockets. For me the fit is perfect and not too baggy around the bodice as some tunic/dresses are. Very nice delicate cord fabric. Will look great with warm tights in Canada. Just love this dress. Very versatile.

Wagtail Dress

Sadly this dress had a fault in the thread on the back so had to go back, which is a shame because I really liked the style and material.
I didn't realise you have stopped doing exchanges, so had to ring yesterday and enquire. I have now ordered another, which I hope arrives in flawless condition.
