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!

Three quarter length sleeves

Unfortunately I missed out on this dress - it has the most beautiful fabric. I would love a size 28 dress like this with three-quarter length sleeves for the autumn.

Brenda dress with boats

I absolutely love this dress and have worn it for all occasions since I received it a few weeks ago! Even went on a cycling touring weekend and packed it tightly into a saddlebag. It was lovely to wear something so comfortable and beautiful on such a “roughing it” experience!,

Vintage glory!

I can't find better words than to say that this magnificent dress makes me feel like a vintage princess. Like always with Seasalt, the quality is just wonderful, the fabric is soft to the skin, the pockets are nice and deep and the skirt has just the right amout of volume, without making me look bulky. The colours are vibrant and just like on the website and the print with the pink boats is truly a statement! I've already received so many compliments.
The measurements are also on point, size 12 fits me like glove!
To be fair, this is a pricy dress (at least from a university student's point of view), but for the quality you get and the fact that it's ethical I think it's absolutely reasonable.
Last but not least I'm so happy to have found this dress, thank you Seasalt for such a wonderful design!

Brenda in Connecticut!

Hi, bought this dress and another in different print in Lottie range. Beautiful dresses, smart but casual, lovely to wear in hot weather. Had lots of compliments on holiday in Connecticut, USA, from strangers passing on streets to people in shops/restaurants etc.... Seasalt should open a branch in Mystic, CT, it would do very well! Highly recommend these dresses. Wish you would do more nautical prints and more colours please.

Do take a look at our Pencil Box Dress, this is a beautiful print and a very similar style to the Brenda Dress. https://www.seasaltcornwall.co.uk/clothing/dresses-tunics/pencil-box-cotton-viscose-dress-swatch-floral-pear.htm

New favourite

I went in to my local store planning to buy a dress in the sale - there were two I had my eye on. I saw this and immediately knew I was going to get one. It is a flattering fit and I love the print and colours.
I’ve worn it a couple of times and have had lovely compliments about it.
It might seem silly, but I am disappointed there is no ‘surprise message’ inside the pocket or at the hem. All my other Seasalt dresses have one reading ‘ahoy there’ or ‘oh to be in Cornwall’ and I really like that.
I didn’t buy, or even try on either of the sale dresses I’d gone for as neither had pockets - a Seasalt dress with no pockets? Oh no! I’m sure I can survive without a jolly message sewn in, but not without a pocket!
Happily though, my Brenda dress cheered me up and is my new favourite.

Lovely summer dress

Beautiful dress with the most lovely summery print, even prettier than expected. True to size and very comfortable. It also has pockets, which are not at all visible and are a nice addition.

The perfect dress!

Everything is perfect about this dress, the fabric, the beautiful print and the retro style. I am usually a size 12 but decided on a 14 as the buttons were pulling a bit, I was afraid that it would look too big everywhere else but it was fine.
I teamed it with the red Vanessa cardigan and they’re a lovely match, I had so many compliments when I wore it for the first time yesterday.

Brenda by the sea

Wonderful dress that makes me feel happy overytime I wear it. Im size 12, 5.6.The fit is good apart from on the sleeves where I would have liked a little more room. Had great advice from sea salt chat re matching with a cardigan ,so helpful. Love this helpline for fashionistas lol. Would love more retro type prints in same Brenda dress style. A hit with me thank you.
