I bought this in size 12 Really Curvy (I’m a UK 34F at Bravissimo) at the sale price. As others have said, it does take some effort to get it on/pulled down over the boobs, so although a zip would help, I imagine this would push up the price..?
As it is, it’s up to each customer whether or not the bit of a struggle is worth it or not. Once on, I LOVE this dress, so for me it’s well worth it. The loops are bit high, as others have said. But this means it fits as a crossover across the boobs, but below that it’s a perfect fit. As we are all different, I’d say don’t be put off by poor reviews and just give it a go. I’ve had compliments EVERY time I’ve worn this.
Although the fabric is very crumpled on delivery, it’s very easily ironed. I’ve worn it for work during the recent hot weather and, unlike other reviewers, I found it doesn’t particularly crease that easily. A great dress, even better at sale price. LOVE the khaki colour with a (UK garden!) tan.
For reference, I’m 5’10”, inside leg 35” and this hits just below the knee. I’m usual dress size 10-12, but I reckon a 10 would have been impossible to get on. 4 stars overall
