When the dress does not fit...

I was kindly and wonderfully approached by F&F to review some items from their True range, and along with a couple of items (which I'll review later), I chose this textured skater dress:


Mainly for the colour, if I'm honest - but you know how much I love a skater dress, so I thought this would make a great addition to my wardrobe. 



Some shockingly awful photographs, but they show how tight the material is over my bust, and instead of skimming my hips, it clings to them. 

Usually stretchy material is a good thing - it seems that this material clings, rather than stretches. 

I got this in my usual 22, and I would guess that I would need a 26 in order to get the fit I'd need for this. 

I'll be returning this dress, and seeing if I can order the 26, but I wanted to share it with you anyway. 

Much love my lovelies,

  1. It's a lovely dress, shame its the wring size. I've seen a few reviews of this range and everyone has said it comes up small... very useful to know so thank you! I think I'll size up when I finally get something xo

  2. I love the dress it's a shame the sizing is so off! I have yet to try anything from the True range but if I do I shall bear this in mind. I hope you have more success with a different size as like you I do love a skater dress xx

  3. I love skater dresses too, I feel like I've finally found a style that was invented for me! The colour of this is lovely, I hope you manage to get one that is the perfect fit! I have one very very similar from Henry Holland at Debenhams and it's my fave. I love the sleeve aspect too :) xx
