Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful in black I bought this cable dress in black and it's a better fit, a better look on me than I ever imagined. I worried it might be too tight (I'm a 14, closer to a 16 on the bottom than a 12, and I chose the size L), but it's so flattering on! Just clingy enough through the top and flaring out from the hips at just the right place and falling to just below the knees (I'm about 5'8"). The style is feminine and sophisticated, and suitable for work. The fabric is lighter weight than I expected, making it perfect for three seasons. The cables are delicate, but not so loose they will snag easily. I love this dress so much I'm happy we're having a cool spring.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Appalling I was so looking forward to this dress, yet was so disappointed. The fabric is too soft, stretches out of shape, and it looks like a sack on me!!! There is absolutely NO shaping (at least not one that is retain able)! I have loved EVERY item ever purchased from PC, but sadly this is NOT one of them. If I hadn't worn it three times, I would return it in an instant! I guess I just kept hoping it would look better on me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the usual quality Lovely looking dress, soft and comfortable and initially a good fit but it stretched out to become very baggy. After washing (handwashed in cold water very carefully) became even worse. I wear it now with a big belt and the sleeves rolled up on house chores day. An expensive dress and not the usual quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Soft Fabric I bought this perfect dress in cinnebar size S. If you are between two sizes, please select smaller size. Fabric very soft. Dress color is a bit darker than photo.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice dress but sizing is wrong The colour is lovely, and the fabric is also beautiful and looks very high quality. However, the sizing/fit seems rather odd. I am a fairly standard size 10 and ordered the S - the bust and arms were fine and hips were ok, but there was loads of extra fabric round the waist, which didn't look very flattering. I certainly don't have a small waist for my size. Also, the length was a bit longer than I would have liked (I am 5'8). I did consider changing it for the smaller size, but I can't believe that XS would be right - I am not that small!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unusual I'm an XS and this fits well although I find the length a bit too long for my height (I'm 5'4"). as it sits just below my knee. It is nearer 42" than the stated 38"! Nevertheless I decided to buy it because it is unusual and both the shape and colour suited me - I think it will go well with boots. The dress also looks a shade darker/richer in the catalogue and website than it is in reality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointing I love the colour of this, and the quality of the fabric is very high. It feels comfortable against the skin, and is a good weight. Unfortunately, although the bust fitted well (I am 39" and bought a size M), the hips were way too large (my hip measurement is also 39"). The full-fashioning and shaping was carefully and cleverly done, but as the fabric is knitted cable, this has the effect of forming small steps in what ought to be a smooth A-line lower half. I was sorry to have to return the dress, but the overall effect of the fit was not good, and the general appearance a bit plain for a dress of this price.
