This is a splendid dress. Easy-peasy to wear, smart, chic and extremely glamorous, it's also made from 100 per cent viscose so it can travel well. If you need to wear a bra you may have to hitch in the bra straps to avoid them peeking out of the cutaway shoulders. This dress is so versatile it could do for the office or for a wedding, and it's one of those great buys because it looks far more expensive than it is. This is a woman's dress and to prove this, it starts at size 12, goes up to size 18 and also comes in navy and white. AB
