This is one of my new favorites: the material, the fit, the grey/black monochrome, the tartan, and the way it makes me feel. Like other reviewers, I also never thought I could find a flattering shift dress. It has washed well inside-out in a mesh wash bag. So far, the Poly/Viscose/Elastane blend works very nicely. I found my usual 10 Really Curvy a bit baggy, mainly on the hips but I’m not very hippy and instead have tummy concerns. Sized down to 8 Really Curvy for a better fit. I wish I would’ve bought this dress sooner as it should be quite appropriate for an office job with some thicker/opaque tights from Autumn through Spring. My only concern is it just falls at a borderline appropriate length on my 70 inch tall frame, taller women may find it too short. Ideally I love 36 inch length or longer dresses. Will be purchasing the other plaid versions as well. Please Bravissimo, consider a future tartan Mustard, Burgundy, Aubergine and/or Emerald! Or just newer grey versions!
