Seam Detail Bodycon Knee Length Dress is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought 2.good staple but note issues Nice staple work dress and the lack of lining means it's not too hot in the office. HOWEVER: 1. Hem has to be resewn. Both hems fell on first wear. So I recommend you reinforce it before you wear it. 2. The slit at the back is a little long/high, so I recommend sewing that closed a bit. 3. The neckline and waist don't sit perfectly if you have a larger chest. I'm a DD and I had to adjust the shoulder seams so that the neckline would lay straight. But, otherwise its decent VFM and I have one of these in each of 2 places I stay so that I can use as a work staple. Comfortable. Looks good. Matches with many jackets. Can dress up or down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great work dress I bought the black and blue and I am so pleased I did, absolutely great dresses for work and i also dressed the black up with leopard print heels and a scarf for a night out, the material is great, the cut is fabulous and the problem some real women have mentioned about looking a few months pregnant wasn’t a problem as it’s cut helped given as a xdresser I carry a bit extra around the waist so the dress was perfect, lots of compliments from real women about how great it looked and questions where I’d got it from, super smart in heels as well as boots and wedges, please make in more colours I will but them all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great classic style A classic style, good length for those wanting a longer dress, means it can be shortened for those wanting a shorter dress. Great value for money although unlined. Sadly I will be returning this as soon as I can get into the store. The waist is for a short waisted person, which means that the whole shape at least on me is wrong. I am so disappointed because this was the dress that offered the style and length in the right size for me. Please get the designers to put the waist on dresses in the right place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sorry - sending it back. Was excited to see a simple, plain, professional-looking dress. Unfortunately the material is cheap and the stitching on the front detail makes it look as thought he dress has been bunched up and stapled. Marks and Spencer - you are missing a trick here. There must be very many women in my position - professional role, some disposable income, 50's, who are looking for smart, well made and reasonably priced work wear and elegant, comfortable shoes. I used to buy all my clothes from you - now I can find very little which fits the bill.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from DISAPPOINTING Loved the look of this dress online & it appeared good value for money especially with the discount. It arrived very creased & not on a hanger like most M & S dresses. Plus it is only lined in the bodice & not the whole dress. Despite this the pink colour was lovely. Whilst it fitted beautifully at the back the gathering at the front at the waist was too bulky & looked very unflattering. At 5' 4" I ordered a short hoping it would sit on the knee but it fell 2/3 inches below the knee. Sadly it will have to be returned.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bring back last seasons design! I was so excited to come across this dress as my old M&S 3/4 length sleeve navy dress is my most worn item for work, it is fitted but flattering especially as I am pear shaped and do have a tummy..but it always looks good. Perfect! Sadly however, having been worn so much for the last 2 years it is starting to get a little tired and the stitching on the hem is starting to come apart. so..when I saw this dress I though ‘yes, they’ve brought it back!’ Alas, whilst they are very similar looking, this new dress is not a patch on the old one. The material feels thinner and cheaper and whilst the old style was shaped to flatter the stomach, this one has so much gathered material it makes you look pregnant! Very unflattering. Please bring back the previous style!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely dress but.... I bought this dress in a size 10 and 12 as I needed a smart black dress for a summer funeral. I felt the 12 was true to size although I usually find M&S slightly large. The dress fitted well, the problem was when I turned to the side the draped bit at the tummy bulged so much as to make me look a few months pregnant. This happened as well with the size 10 although this was a bit snug. I was disappointed as I didn't have much time to find something else, but unfortunately they both went back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good standby smart dress I'm an m+S 10-12 and 6' tall. This dress fit perfectly at the top in a size 10 but, like other reviewers I found the pleats over my stomach very unflattering. Looks great from the front but the side view definitely leaves a lot to the imagination! However, the neckline, sleeve length and dress length are perfect. At 6' I have problems finding dresses that go to the knee and this is spot on.( I think a small tweak of the side seam will deal with the excess fabric over the tummy) Will definitely be looking out for this style in other colours
