M&S Collection Floral Lace Shift Dress
lovely dress, but not fit for purpose
This dress is a great fit and looks fantastic. But unfortunately it has a major design flaw, as other customers have found. The bodice should have been sewn into the dress, as it falls down all the time and is unwearable as it is. A small piece of ribbon with a popper goes through a loop on the bodice, but it is far too short, and the dress is all out of kilter when it's done up.
I bought it online and tried it on in the shop when I collected it. I asked 2 members of staff for help in the changing room, and they agreed that it seemed to be a design flaw and that it can't be worn without alterations.
I don't want to send it back, as it fits me perfectly and this is very rare when it comes to dresses, as my top and bottom are completely different sizes! But I'm not good at sewing, and I don't want to pay to have a brand new dress altered.
So, M & S, what about a gesture of goodwill for all customers who have bought a lovely dress, but one that's not fit for purpose?

Lovely party dress
Bought this dress in my usual size 8 but it came up big - could have done with a 6 but, as with all M&S clothes, a size 6 is as easy to get hold of as a winning Lottery ticket. In fact, I'm not sure they exist as they've always sold out. Please M&S - stock more size 6 and 8 clothes.

After reading the reviews I was a little concerned as to what size would fit. Got the size 12. I am bigger on the top than the bottom. It fitted perfectly as it is slightly stretchy. Very happy with my purchase.
