love/hate

 
Topshop flower crochet insert sundress

Please excuse my boyfriend's messy room, I bought this the other day after work and had to try it on as soon as I got in! I don't know if you can tell but it seems a little bit tight, I don't really know if that's because I need a bigger size or not though as it's faulty! One pocket goes lower than the other, and the waist is a little weird fitting even though that's actually the smallest part of me.

If you have this dress, do you wear your normal size? This one is an 8, I usually wear an 8 or a 10 in Topshop depending on the fit but I think a 10 might be too loose around the waist. Also, I need your help since I bought the very last one on the rail! I need to take this back and it would be absolutely fantastic if someone could track another one down for me. The thing is I don't know if I need a normal 8 or a 10 instead because I can't judge from this dress! Such a pain!


UPDATE: Have since swapped this one for another size 8 and it fits perfectly! Post coming soon!

  2. I always find Topshop's sizing to be strange. It never fails to confuse me as I'm a different size every time I buy something there!

  3. it looks alittle tight in you sholders, i would say try another one on in the same size just to make sure. it is a beautiful dress hun. xx

  4. I think the sizing looks fine on you, and the 10 will definately be way too big. However I do think you should exchange it for another 8, I'll keep an eye out in the NE for you xxx

  5. Oh its gorgeous! My friend has this dress in a different colour (black floral) she had to take it back and get the next size up, otherwise try miss guided, they have cream ones and things and there sizing seems to be pretty good! :) It really suits you though and would look great with and with-out tights which i love :) xx

  7. if you feel uncomfortable in it then you'll never wear it and it'll be a waste so just take it back!
    you have such a gorgeous figure - just wondering do you do anything to maintain it?

  8. I think the fit does look okay, but the dress itself looks a bit meh on you :S Either go up a size, or try on the same dress in your size??

  9. my sister has the exact same dress, she had to swap it for a bigger size. she didn't really notice it was a little wonky, and she's really weird about these things haha, so maybe yours is a slightly faulty one? hope you work it out okay!

    and you still look lush in it, don't worry!

  10. I have it in red in a size 10, but I'm generally a size 8 in dresses, although it is a bit loose, it hangs quite loosely on me around the waist, but is tighter over my chest so I don't think I could wear an 8 in it. I'll look out for one in a 10 for you just in case haha =D I have a post where I'm wearing it here:

  12. Oh and a little tip, it's a good dress to wear backwards too with the V neck on the front, I actually prefer to wear it that way =)

  13. i bought this dress the other day too and mine is like that in the back aswell, but i tried a bigger size and i found it just didnt look as nice, like it was too big. x

  14. i think this is absolutely gorgeous on you and perfect sizing - honestly, probably one of your outfits that is my fave to date! deffo keep, in this size too! it makes your figure look gorgeous, i'm so envious!
    also seen a number of girls unable to pull this off like you do - so go for it baby! xo

  15. I love this dress!!! It looks gorgeous! But like other people have said, if you don't feel comfortable in it then take it back.

  16. I had the same problem with that dress except I did not buy it, it just looked weird at the flower part at the back, like it was going to pop open but they had no small sizes left so I couldn't compare it. x

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love the detailing on it, but the back just looks really awkward to put on x

    ReplyDelete
  18. maybe its the style? I find topshop often has some strange cuts. Maybe try another in the same size? If you can't find one in-store perhaps try online x

  19. Beautiful dress! I love the detailing!

  20. This is a beautiful dress on you, although it does look slightly tight across the back - but looser around the waist, so it's possible it could just be that particular dress and another in the same size would be fine.. xx

  21. this is such a gorgeous dress, such a shame about the sizing. it does look a bit tight but i think a 10 would be too loose, i'll keep an eye out for you :)

  22. it looks quite tight on the upper back and chest so i would go a size bigger but i would also say, the material doesnt look very good at all, looks quite cheap (ecspecially for how much it is!) and i bet it will shrink the first time you wash it!

  23. I really like this dress and I think it looks great on you!

    I debated buying it today but I'm not so sure about it being on me yet!!

  24. I'd say take it back.. I've seen plenty of this style of dress in Topshop- all different patterns and colours so maybe you could try one with a different pattern to check the sizes and then hunt the right sized one accordingly! :) Hope you find a good 'un! xxxx

  25. I have this in a 10 and it fits me perfectly. Lately I am an 8 to 10 in Topshop. The only thing I didn't like about this at first was the buttons at the back! It can be a pain doing them up, but I love it. Maybe try the next size up? I did an OOTD on this if it helps.

  26. i have a size 6 and fits perfectly on me. if you feel a bit uncomfortable with the current size,maybe u should exchange for a bigger size?

    ReplyDelete
  27. i think it's a super gorgeous dress, and i love the detailing around the waist! it's a dilemma really, because it looks super nice all tight & fitted like that, but if you don't feel comfortable in it, i'd say try and exchange it for a bigger size. xx

  28. if it's possible, i would try on the 10.
    because it might just be the dress style/cut itself that it doesn't fit you correctly. and if it is really worth your while and you love it, can get your hands on a more comfortable size, you can always alter it :)
    i really do like it!

    ReplyDelete
  29. i work at Topshop and a lot of people have tried this dress on and all assumed they needed a bigger size, it's the dress, not them! so get a bigger size if you feel more comfortable, but one woman bought it and just moved the buttons slightly, which is easy enough to do..
    hope this helped a bit!

  30. Hey lovely! I had the black floral one they did last year and had to go a size up so I think it is just the dress! Give me a shout on Twitter if you want me to get another of the dress for you in either size, live about 30mins away from Oxford Circus :)

  31. i had this dress, and i purchased it in a size 6, 8 and 10 and in several colours as i wanted it to fit. unfortunately it never did. the waist which is also my smallest bit but it just crumpled up and the only one that felt/looked ok was the 6 but like you said was slightly tight. the dress just wasnt made for me!

  32. I love this dress! Topshop's sizing really annoys me though so I hope you manage to get a new dress/one that fits :) xx

  33. What a lovely dress! I absolutely love it! I think its the best choice to hot summer!

  34. The celebs are loving this dress and I am too. One of them wore it back to front for some reason! I think it looks nice x

  35. I have this, too!
