    I have Barbara in every single print and can't recommend it enough. It's the perfect flattering fit for me as a size 16 at around 5"4. I by far get the most compliments on the dinosaur print

    This dress is the perfect style and length for work and is super flattering. Would also wear it out with pumps in the summer and tights and boots in the winter - so versatile! Will be buying it in a different print next pay day!

    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!

    This is my favourite dress. I've struggled with my body shape since having my son and Joanie has made me love clothes again. I'm a 16 and this dress is such a great shape - and I love the print

    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.

    Absolutely love this dress. Ordered a 12 at first as that tends to be my normal size however I found it to be slightly on the larger size so ordered a 10 and it fits fine.
    Love the print, style and fit. Would highly recommend this dress.

    Love the print on this dress! Sizing is really accurate, I have the same dress in the Cabernet design, same size but is slightly bigger, completely matching my expectations. Really flattering style too. It’s become a real staple of my wardrobe!

    I absolutely love this dress! I bought it as I work in a museum/gallery and thought it would be a bit of fun. When I wear it I get stopped all the time by people saying how amazing it is. Personally the neckline is a bit low so I do wear a t-shirt underneath it.

    My most favourite dress I've ever owned. I receive SO many compliments on this every single time I wear it, without exception. I'm only 5'2 so was worried about the length but matched with a pair of heeled ankle boots it's perfect and very flattering. Will wear for the rest of eterninty :)

    I bought this dress at the start of the week and it arrived a few days later. When it arrived I tried it straight on and couldn't take it off again. It is so comfortable and flattering and I received so many compliments on it. I know want it in as many colours/patterns as possible! Bring out more Joanie!

    So comfy, lovely floaty fabrics, love the button on the waist to stop tummy popping out. Also it has pockets!

    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.

    I haven't worn it out yet due to it just arriving today but I tried it in and love it. It's roomy and comfy and flattering. This and the book one which I also bought will be perfect for work (I work in a museum and library) I'm super happy and want to buy more!
