Petite Knot Front Dress with Belt
I love this dress
Very flattering dress and a perfect fit, I am a size 8-10 and 5ft 1", and I bought a size 8. I bought it for work and I am very pleased with it. The knot feature sits perfectly, no gaping or "flashing" at all, and I wouldn't agree with one of the other reviews that it looks tarty, far from it I think it looks very chic.

Lovely dress but...
If this dress had come in a standard size (as opposed to only petite) I probably would have kept it. It's was slightly skimped all over on the size (I'm an 8) and very short (I'm 5' 3 1/2") but a very flattering shape - especially if you're a bit pear shaped like me. It's too short for an older woman wanting to wear it as a dress (not a tunic) to work and be taken seriously!
The knot effect at the neck lay perfectly on me - no gaping at all. Overall, the design was very easy and comfortable to wear.
I liked it so much I even took it into work and offered it to a slim colleague in her early 30s. She loved it too but again too short for work.
M&S - great design. Please do in standard sizes, longer and different fabrics/colours.

Luckily I tried this dress on when collecting from the store. The knot front that looks like a small feature on the model is actually quite a large slit right down between the breasts. It looked really sleazy - definitely not for work! I'm afraid I returned this straight away. Look closely at the picture and I think it has been stitched up a bit.
