    Beautiful dress. Looks classic and vintage. Very feminine!!! Joanie has given me the confidence to wear dresses such as these! Wouldn’t get my clothes from anywhere else now. Great quality, unusual prints and lovely edits. Can’t seem to stop buying.

    My newest & favourite joanie item.
    Love the polka dots & colour.
    Perfect to wear for office wear or a date night. Love the length too. Will go great with black ankle boots & tights for a great winter look.

    Pretty, feminine and super comfy. I love that it’s flattering without being too fitted so it’s good for those days when you need it! I’m an 8, bought an 8 and am happy with it but would consider sizing down if your first choice isn’t available as it’s generous and flowing. Beautiful colour too!

    This is a fabulous dress that is just so flattering, feminine and flirty! I would have given five stars but I found that after two wears nearly all of the buttons had come loose, and that was before it went through the wash. It is definitely now my favourite item in my wardrobe though!

    I saw this dress scrolling on instagram and I am a huge polkadot fan so I decided to give it a go. I was a tad worried cause I do need a bit of stretch and was it gonna be flattering enough for me these things are often hard to find? But I was worried for nothing. It is super flattering and sized big enough, it's comfy ane just lovely! I wished I could order every Barbara dress after that!

  7. nice but chest is too small
    Quality

    I automatically size up from a 12 toa 14 whenever something has buttons on the chest, normaly stuff on joanie is fine when i do this, but this is too small on the chest. I've sized up and I still need safety pins to stop it gaping open at the buttons. But it fits everywhere else perfectly, if i got a 16 it would hang off me.

    Other than that, its super cute and flattering and I love it - but the sizing is off on this one. Order a size up if you have tits.

    Absolutely in love with this dress. I'm always a bit worried about buying button up dresses or shirts as often they end up gaping open at my chest, this dress fit just perfectly and will look great for the festive season. Very happy

    I was initially worried spending so much on a dress on a website that I have never visited before, but this dress was so beautiful I knew I wouldn't be able to stop thinking about it so I decided to order one, and I am glad I did! The dress is lovely and floaty, it has pockets which is a bonus (I didn't realise when I read the description), and the sizing is generous. I will definitely be ordering from Joanie again :)

    I absolutely adore all the items I've bought from Joanne. I very recently treated myself to this dress and couldn't be happier with it. It's gorgeous, vibrant, stylish and looks great on. It's made out of soft material and fits true to size. I love it and know it'll get a lot of use. It'll look beautiful on everyone who buys it- go on, treat yourself too!

    A lovely dress that fits true to size. Not a thick fabric so don’t get too warm and best of all, it has pockets that are actually a decent size, not just for show!

    Really comfy, and measurements are accurate! LOVE that there are pockets! The cut is really flattering as well. Big thank you to customer services too - I was accidentally sent a US 14 instead of UK 14. Quick email and I was sent out the correct size on return of the incorrect one. Super easy, thank you!

    Lovely dress, can be dressed up or down. The material flows nicely. I find it finishes at my knees, whereas I'd prefer it sat just above them

    This is the second Barbara dress I have bought, and once again it is utterly gorgeous. The colour is beautiful, the material is light and flowy and the overall look can be dressed up or down. Another gorgeous dress.

    Lovely dress. Flow-y. Cute. Elegant. Great with black tights too. But...I have a feeling, once again, that the waist height is off. It ties just too far up by my ribs. I am 6ft tall. More range for size or adjustable belt loops would be great. Also: stretchy end of sleeves. These are far too tight. Also: broad back? Order a size up to have free range. Other than that, I am keeping it. It's a lovely dress.
