Women's Plus Velvet Boatneck Dress
Dressed up - yet comfortable
This might be the most comfortable "dressy dress" you ever wear. For that, you can thank the stretchy knit velvet fabric kissed with elastane so it keeps its shape and flatters yours. Season spanning elbow length sleeves and Princess side panels create a fluid silhouette and the boat neckline is graceful, but not so wide that bra or slip straps will show. 90% polyester/10% elastane. Machine wash.

Approx. garment length:
Plus size M: 108cm/42½"
Features
  • Fluid, machine washable knit velvet
  • Elegant boatneck styling
  • Princess side panels flatter every figure
  • Easy pullover dressing
  • Flared skirt adds ease
  • Season spanning elbow length sleeves

Loved the style and simplicity of the dress
but had to send it back
didn't do a thing for me I need something more tailored made me look drab & not at all flattering.
Neck line poorly stitched didn't have a neat finish

I loved this dress - the colour is lovely and the fabric is excellent. Unfortunately, though,the style did not suit me at all, so I have reluctantly returned it.

    Comments about Women's Velvet Boatneck Dress:

    I am really pleased with it although it is a bit shorter than I am used to. I have the petite size as I am 5 foot 1 1/2 inches tall.
    I have bought it to wear over Christmas and for a winter break in this country in January.

    I wish Lands End offered some sort of elegant but not too smart long sleeved jacket for additional warmth

    Comments about Women's Velvet Boatneck Dress:

    The dress was a good fit overall, but I felt that it was not special enough for the Christmas party season. The material was creased and creases didn't drop out when hung and as most people had commented, the front neck line didn't sit well. As it was a good fit I considered keeping it, but I didn't know when I would wear it. The black would probably have been more versatile but was sold out. I returned the dress.

      I love this dress, except that the facing at the front of the neck is not attached as it is at the back. This makes it ride up rather than sitting neatly under the dress front. It's a minor thing, but quite irritating!

        Really flattering, easy to wear dress for smarter occasions...easy to dress up further with pearl or diamonte string and pretty party shoes. If I had seen it when there were other colours I would have bought them all (only black available in small petite). I would love in midnight blue, teal, green..

                    A:

                    Originally, this dress was available in sweet bordeaux, deep midnight navy and black (item D on page 16/17 of the December catalogue). However, this item has sold really well and is now only available in black. Therefore, the other colours have been removed from our website. Unfortunately, as the catalogues are printed in advance, we are unable to remove items that may have already sold out.

                    A:

                    We have limited stock of this dress in the sweet bordeaux colour. If you wish to place an order, due to extremely low stock levels, please call our sales team on 0844 700 70 70 (UK) or (+44) 1572 758070 (International).
                    Our regular fit is suitable for a height of between 5'4" and 5'7". The length of this garment is 40h inches. Unfortunately, this garment is unavailable in a petite fit.

                    According to your measurements, I would advise to order the US size Medium (UK14-16), which is suitable for a chest measurement of 37-38h inches.
