    I agree! It really wasn’t good on the launch show when the camera kept zooming in on the crotch area - so unflattering esp on the little plus sized model.



    I have really had it with the Hi-Lo look we have had pushed on us over the last 2 or 3 years. I am always on the look out for dresses that cover my knees well, but very often the midi length turns out to be high in the front so would actually accentuate that area.

    I'd ordered one each of the navy and red and then watched the launch video and realised it had dolman (batwing?) sleeves - I've got T-Rex arms already and don't need anything that will make them look even stumpier, so I swiftly cancelled my order.

I just hope that it isnt too overpowering.

    As I type it does seem that it has mostly sold out so hopefully it will be ok otherwise they will be getting a lot of returns.
    I'm only short puffin, but we tend to walk tall right?

    Received mine today. Pleasantly surprised. The fabric is NOT the slippery polyester, but a soft knitted and lightweight, which I like.

    I ordered pink and navy, and the fit on me is actually ok (and my crotch is covered, so I think it depends on body shape). HOWEVER, my gripe is the seam in the sleeve, I cant understand why its there. Its something that seems to be prevalent on tops of this kind - as I've noticed in other ranges in the shops.

    The seam is slightly tight, so if you have plumper upper arms the fit is ok until the seam hits just above the elbow. I'll keep them, but will steam iron and stretch the seam (top tip when fabric is a tad tight) to make it more comfortable. They'll be great for cooler summer days.

    Good to hear a success story Brissles. I haven't found anything from Kim and co that I like in a while, but I have bought tops and maxi dresses in the past with ditsy patterns or plain colours and they have lasted years. I don't think that I have ever worn something out and thrown it away, no pilling or stretching out of shape. It's a pity that there aren't more designs to my liking these days. Maybe when you wash it just stretch the seam before putting it to dry as the seams are well made and unlikely to split.

    Mine arrived too and worn over the weekend so it's just going though the wash at the mo. Very soft, matte not heavy or woolly, neckline not too high and sleeves not too tight. Nice dark navy too. If it comes out of the wash intact it'll be a useful buy.

    I got mine today and although it's a lovely pink colour and fabric, it did nothing for me. I could have probably gone down a size but it just swamped me. Sadly it's going back.
    Thanks Akimbo thanked for this post
