A second shopper praised: “Beautiful classic style summer dress, lightweight and stylish.” A third positive review read: “Beautiful dress. Very flattering. Looking forward to wearing it in the summer. I brought my usual size and it fit perfectly.”

A fourth M&S shopper said: A must-have summer dress. A lightweight linen dress that hangs perfectly and has a good weight, so the dress is not thin. It is very flattering and easy to wear. The dress has enough fabric at the bust for a larger bust, so I was able to purchase a size 10, which made the dress fit perfectly. I also bought the blue color, a denim color blue that I am also very happy with.”

And another added: “A quite heavy linen which makes it hang nicely and thankfully not bright white linen but a bit of ‘dirty’ white. It fits perfectly and for me it would be a dress I would wear on a cool summer evening with a cropped ‘pop of colour’ cardigan or jacket.”

Some shoppers have said the linen is quite sheer, and one four-star review said: “The dress is beautiful but thin and the sheer size is on the small side.”
