I wasn’t sure whether to order this dress as I’d initially thought the shape had potential to look a bit old fashioned or frumpy. HOWEVER, I went for it and am so pleased I did! To avoid the frump I bought it a touch on the smaller side to make sure the waist band was fitted as I didn’t want to drown in it or not have much shape. It really sits beautifully and is so flattering in real life, fitted just above the waist but then nicely floats over the stomach. The colours and print are gorgeous.
I’m 5,5 and normally buy a size 10 so I went for a small. It’s a bit of a squeeze to pull it on with there not being a zip but is lovely once it’s there.
I saw on Instagram that it’s potentially breastfeeding friendly; I’d say definitely size up if you’d like to do this. With the top part of the dress being quite fitted on me I can’t pull the top down for breastfeeding. That’s not going to be a problem for me by the spring when I intend to start wearing it but it’s worth bearing in mind if you are going to be breastfeeding wearing it.
Will definitely be happy to buy a Mutha Hood dress again, especially if any more with a closer fitted waist or some exciting prints come out. Thanks!
I’m a bit late jumping on the Muthahood dress bandwagon but I’m well and truly on now! I um’d and ah’d a lot about this dress because I’m quite well endowed (a HH cup) and while I loved the dress just wasn’t sure if it would fit the puppies. I measured, remeasured then sat on my hands too long and missed my chance. But then had an email to say my size was back in stock - hurrah! The dress arrived and is simply beautiful - the fabric, the pattern, the colours, the weight, the sleeves, the detail, I could go on and on! My advice if you’re larger chested is sit the dress correctly on your shoulders as this makes all the difference. It fits really well and my other half even commented how well it fitted in general and on the bust (normally I just get an auditory grunt!). I’m 5’ 5” and the length is perfect, it doesn’t drag on the floor! I also love the versatility of the dress in terms of styling and can see I will be able to wear it through winter with boots/cardigans as well as summer. I haven’t washed it yet but will make sure to follow the instructions listed to ensure it’s longevity.
This dress is incredible. Gorgeous attention to detail so it fits like a dream, beautiful fabric both in print and texture, fabulously full skirt and even room for my huge boobs! It’s a 10/10
