Last week I found a 1950s style fan print midi dress from Boo Hoo that I posted about. It was in the sale for £12, so on an impulse, I ordered one to see what the quality was like.
The first thing I was very impressed with was the speed of delivery. I ordered the dress at 6pm on Wednesday night and it arrived at lunch time on Thursday, I certainly never expected that!
The fabric of the dress is very thin, and very light and it goes static when worn over tights. I wore it with a petticoat which added a bit of extra warmth as well as stopping the static.
The length was good, and the sizing fairly accurate, I ordered a 12, the same size as I normally order and it fits fine.
I did find the zip very stiff going over the waist band, a problem I frequently find with concealed zips, but it has loosened slightly with repeated use.
For £12 + postage, the dress is a total bargain. It works with tights and a cardigan and will be great come summer, especially with such a light fabric.
The dress is still available in the sale in sizes 8-12
