This is the most amazing dress at a ridiculously low price. The style is extraordinarily flattering. It fits the ribs and waist comfortably with a little stretch and the sweeping curves across the bust and shoulders accentuate an hourglass figure - even if nature did not give you one! The skirt is not quite a full circle but there is enough of it to swish beautifully as you walk (or dance). The colour is a more intense red than the picture suggests, but I like that and think it flatters my skintone. I also have the navy polka-dot version of this style. I slightly prefer the red one because the material is a heavy cotton with a little stretch. The navy one is a good quality heavy synthetic but I prefer natural materials. Collectif suggest sizing up in the navy one because it is not stretchy. I found the 12 too big and sent it back. I ordered the red print and the navy polka-dot in size 10 and they are a perfect fit.
I already own a Regina flared dress in a navy spot so can tell you this one has the same beautiful qualities. It's a heavy dress when you lift it out of the closet but that's only because the cotton is an excellent quality and thickness with a wonderful stretch to it which flatters the figure. The length is great and the dress looks brilliant with a contrasting petticoat. If you have a heavy chest I would definitely choose a dress size up. I actually ordered two sizes as I was certain I wanted it. My only negative about this dress is the colour is actually blood red not the softer colour in all the pictures. Collectif please put a new 'photo on as I'm certain you will get a lot of new orders that way. Unfortunately for me as I cannot wear this particular colour I am having to return two dresses and dreading the postage charge !
