I can't imagine how this dress was ever priced at Ã‚Â£149! The fabric was flimsy and see through and the dress didn't hang properly because it really should have been lined. I don't think this dress fairly reflects the good quality that one expects from Pure. Very disappointing!
Very flattering.perfect for work. The material is very fine and almost see through ,but hangs well. Not a forgiving style, so requires a perfect figure or good foundation wear.Re previous comment about deodorant marks.These can't be avoided, but are easily removed with a damp cloth.
I read the reviews and saw the comments about the poor fabric, but decided to go ahead with my purchase. The dress fitted beautifully and I was very pleased with it. However, it was creased and I decided to iron it. Big mistake! I followed instructions and ironed on a cool setting on the reverse. The marks made by the steam iron turned white, even on the right side, as other people mentioned, and I could not get them out. Very disappointed, as it is a lovely dress. Unfortunately, it will be going back. After a large number of purchases from Pure, this is the first failure.
Over priced even with 25% discount. No WOW factor whatsoever, very poor quality fabric & disappointing all round. The only positive note was that it fitted well & felt comfortable. First time buyer & will use company again.Great customer service handling refund. Just chose wrong design for me.
I loved this dress, but can't find a size that fits. The 12 felt a bit snug, but the next size up -- a 14-16, according to the website -- was absolutely enormous and, worse, so long-waisted that, given the style, there's no way that I could have had it altered. Some sites offer tall sizes. If Pure should wish to do so, this dress would belong there.
This is a gorgeous expensive dress that I wore once. The other comments about the fabric showing every little stain are accurate. I wore it to my 50th birthday party and I looked fabulous. Then I dripped a bit of salad dressing on it and dry cleaning didn't remove it. I washed it by hand; it shrank about two sizes. It was a very expensive One Night Wonder. I love Pure. I have many of their pieces and this is the first bad piece I've found. I wish this dress was a bit stretchier, more stain resistant and didn't shrink. Then it would be worth the price.
Day to evening dress - great wardrobe addition.
Very small fitting compared to dresses I have purchased in Debenhams and House of Fraser. Nothing usual about this dress for the price I paid.
If I have a business meeting, and lunch with my husband - this is the perfect dress. Pearls, or a pin on the shoulder...or simple silver jewelry - all make the dress beautiful!
Got the blue and looks great. Feel nice on too.
Perfect for special occasionsm
This is a beautifully cut dress in a great colour (I picked blue). Trouble is the fabric - no matter how carefully you put it on, it seems you pick up white crease marks on the outside of the dress - even from my (proven and invisible drying) deodorant. These proved impossible to get out - I tried everything, and even gentle spot sponging with water had no effect and just left ring marks. Net effect - a last minute quick change when the dress proved completely unwearable. Such a shame - I have a couple of Pure dresses in similar cut and the same size but the fabrics are different and any little white marks easily brush off. A couple of marks have remained even after washing! Too late to send back - lesson learned and a (very expensive) donation to the charity shop!
