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

    This is versatile; it looks equally good at a cocktail party as at a church function. The skirt has a nice flair to it,.

        This is such a good design, simple but flattering. The fabric does not crease so is good for packing. I can just pull it on and am ready to go!
        Soft plum colour is very nice. Elbow length sleeve is also flattering - I hate sleeveless dresses.
        Neckline flatters but is not so wide that it reveals straps. Ideal for any dressy occasion.

            I don't like the broad size range. So difficult to know what to choose. I am between a 12 and 14 and ordered the 10/12 and it fits fine. But nearly didn't order anything. I'm glad I did but wish the sizes were more specific

                This represents great value for money, it will dress up really effectively for a formal night on a cruise. Small fits me perfectly and I am a size 10 - I might struggle if I was a good size 12.

                Lovely looking dress but so disappointed

                Pros

                  Cons

                  • Bustline Too High
                  • Poor Fit

                  Best Uses

                    Comments about Women's Velvet Boatneck Dress:

                    So disappointed. The dress felt lovely but the bust lines are for someone with the extremely high and pert breasts of a teenager!

                    This dress appeared to make my poor 50-something year old 34C bust look extremely ample and saggy. Not a good look.

                    I wonder if the standard size might fit better than the petite, but strangely, it is not currently on Sale, like the petite is.

                        At this we are only planning to keep the Black in stock, however I have passed your request through to our Market Research department for their consideration.
