  1. Very nice
    Quality

    Soooo much nicer in person than I was expecting! Very flattering fit and very comfortable. It's a little on the loose side but I don't think it matters as there's a tie belt so you can tighten as you please, but if you like something a little more fitted I would definitely suggest to size down. Also, I'm 5'3" and this dress goes slightly past my knees so looks more like a midi. I personally love midis so it works for me but just be weary of this!

    I've been eyeing this dress up for ages and when I saw it in the Black Friday sale I couldn't resist. it's. great fit and will be perfect for the office once we go back to in office working. For now I'll just be wearing it around the house and who can forget about the pockets! 5'10 and size 16

    Amazing fabric, and a perfect fit. Generous sizing - I was worried I wouldn't fit into a size 12 because I'm slightly bigger than the measurements in the size guide, but I'm so glad I didn't order a 14. The size 12 has room to spare on me (which will be handy over the festive season). No gaping, no tightness!

    Amazing dress made of great quality material. As a dinosaur nerd I loved it. I got a size 16 and it fit me perfectly especially since my bust is a 36F. I'm also 5"1 and it fell just below the knee but a lovely length. Very excited to wear this out!

    I loved dinosaurs as a kid and seeing this print made my heart skip! I am ashort hourglass, modern clothing isn’t made for this shape, but Barbera is! Wow! Like I’ve had it made to measure, I’m a 10 sometimes 12 on bottom half and ordered a 10. Perfect fit! The pockets are made for swishing! A dress that also loves me! My adult obsession are my cats so I had to order that one too!

    This by far my favourite dress I've ever owned. The fit is so lovely and makes me feel amazing. I wear alot of tea dresses and I especially liked that the dress and a reverse button just before your waist. It stops a gap showing. I love the print on this (how can you not...dinosaurs) Also on a separate note I did need to contact customer services regarding my order and they were exceptional. Top notch service.

    I am in love with this dress - the print is super cute, it fits like a second skin (no gaping at the breast!) and it's long enough for my 6'0 body. It falls above the knee, but it's not too short to wear to work (I'm a teacher). Oh, and let's not forget about the pockets... ❤️

    Definitely buying more prints, been eyeing the cat one for a while...

  12. The perfect dress - WITH POCKETS!!
    Quality
    100%
    This may be the greatest dress I’ve ever bought. The perfect length to wear for work (5ft6 and hits me just on the knee). Lightweight enough to wear on those warmer end of summer/early Autumn days but not so thin that it’ll have to be packed away for winter. It’s so comfortable to wear and fits to perfection. I also love the detailing of the collar and the hidden button to prevent gaping. I’ve had so many compliments on this, and my Dino mad nephew is very impressed with the print!

    As a bigger sized woman shirt dresses can sometimes be a bit scary to buy online, they are usually to tight around the arms or over the chest. But not this one. This dress is absolutely perfect, might be my new favourite dress. I hope more dresses with this model comes in even more patterns <3

    Best dress ever and it's fits like a clove! Lovely shade of green also. I bought a size 12 and I'm usually EU size 40. My bra size is 75F (34F) and I did't have any gaping at the front side of the dress. I'm a teacher and this dress really got noticed at school. Joanie clothing also sends quite fast to Finland!

    I didn’t expect to love this dress as much as I do, it’s literally perfect. The fit is so flattering, complete with hidden button to prevent gaping. I am between sizes and based on other reviews went for the smaller size which is spot on. Please please please bring this out in more prints / restock larger sizes in the book print!!

    I've purchased the Barbara dress in 3 different prints... Love the style of this dress beautifully swishy and light material looks great with trainers or dressed up with boots. Very flattering neckline my husband is a big fan. Great access as a breastfeeding mum but also really stylish and fun. I am quite busy so I've had a slight issue with gapage between the 2nd and 3rd button a button in between would be an excellent addition if reissuing in more styles but I it a huge or overly obvious issue.

    I didn't expect to love this dress as much in real life as online but in fact I love it more. I'm usually a 10-12 but went with a 10 after seeing reviews saying it comes up large on the top and I agree- unless you are top heavy size down rather than up. It has a really flattering fit and is making me want to buy more!

    Love the pattern, love the material, love the style I just love everything about it. I'm normally a 12 so ordered my normal size however I returned it for a 10 as I found they come up slightly bigger on the top half. I'm an E cup and a 12 was roomy. The 10 is a little snug on the waist but still looks good and doesn't feel uncomfortable even on the chest. Would highly recommend his dress.

    This dress is amazing! Genuinely my favourite thing in my cupboard.

    As a uni student it’s so handy to have as I know I can grab it quick and styles it easily when I’m in a rush. It also washes well and doesn’t crease.

    I would say the fit it true to size. It’s not too tight or too baggy. It’s nice and flowy. The dress shows off curves perfectly.

    Since the material is thin there is no problem of overheating, something I was concerned about when purchasing.

    Overall, this is one of the best purchases you could ever make! Looking forward to see if they make this style in other prints.

    This dress is the actual bee's knees. I literally love everything about it. There is no gaping in the buttons, the fit is super duper flattering and the pattern is definitely on-point. The length of the dress is also perfect - not too short but not too long (I am 5'4").

    I only wish they had this exact same dress is more patterns - I would buy them all.

    A note about size - I am between a 10 & a 12 and I purchased a 12 and it is on the roomy-side so I would say it fits true to size. I could have gone down to a 10 for a closer fit and I am sure it would have fit fine, but I move a lot for my job so prefer a little bit more give since this fabric has no stretch.

    I bought this dress last week and was so excited about it! I wore it last night and got no less than 10 compliments about it. It's very well made and a flattering fit. I am only 5ft 2 and very curvy so buying dresses online doesn't always end well for me but I love this one! It arrived really quickly too, even too Guernsey. Can't wait to buy something else.

    This dress is a stunner. It is beautifully made and, despite being a wonderful lightweight fabric, it doesn't need a petticoat. As a previous reviewer said, it doesn't gape at all - at a size 10 E cup I have absolutely no issues with the shirt element of the dress. The print has sparked many a conversation and is a favourite with my toddler! Definitely worth the money.
