Disappointing fit

I loved the look of the dress on the website but in reality although the bust fitted well the skirt was just not flattering at all. The material didn't hang as I expected it to - it just stuck out over my tummy. I am a 20 and wish that when dress designers up sized dresses they didn't just add to the material regardless of what it looked like. Had to return.

See Through!

Unfortunately I had to send this back. It didn't suit me with the fitted top half and billowing skirt looking like maternity wear. Also the material is see through if standing with light behind. Sad because the material was gorgeously soft and good quality.

Super cool stripes

This is an absolutely superb dress. It is beautifully flattering... the neckline and length are just right and the cut and drape are cool and flowing. Perfect for a hot summer's day. I have already had compliments while wearing this dress!

Love it

Bought in store at Sidmouth. Last minute trip to the pixie festival & ill prepared for such heat. Saw in store, not my usual style but in need of something cool. This was perfect fit, length and cool in the heat. Teamed nicely with white converse. Not at all see thru, great quality 100*/* organic cotton. Staff very kind/helpful - thank you

Lovely dress

Its a really lovely dress, sadly I had to send it back for a couple of reasons. I have a large bust and the design of the chevrons on the front was just not flattering, although I went by measurements on size chart it was too big, Ibought a 22 when probably a 20 would have been OK. It was too long but thats fine as at 5' 3" things are often too long but i would have taken it up. It is a lovely dress, nice soft floating fabric, really like it just sorry the style didnt suit me.

Sadly this dress didn't match up to the quality that I expected from Seasalt. The material is too thin, see through when held to the light and only really appropriate to wear on the beach. I don't think I'll be shopping online again as I assumed this dress would be the same quality as previous shop bought purchases.

Gorgeous Dress

So happy I ordered this dress. Had similar style last year and was so happy when saw this years dresses. I only discovered Seasalt last year having loved Boden dresses for many years but feel that your dresses are better value for money. The fabric is lovely and pattern very summery. I do have to pay to have your dresses taken up as I am only 5ft 4inches but small prices to pay for a lovely dress that I will get plenty of wear out off. It would be great if you could do this style of dress in a shorter length for us shorties!

Not for me

I was really excited when this dress appeared on the website but sadly itthe fabric and fit didn't live up to expectations. Although I am the same height as the model pictured, the dress was much shorter on me - about 4 inches above the ankle. It fitted well through the body apart from the bust where there was excess fabric under the armpits which stuck put awkwardly. Finally, with the light behind me the dress was see through from the hips down. Fabric needed to be slightly thicker. Sad to be sending this back.
