" After reading reviews I sized down and am very pleased. The weight and drape of this dress is lovely and it is very easy to wear. I bagged an absolute bargain in the sale which makes it even better! "

" I've read some mixed reviews of this dress, but I love it! Great fit, and I love the heaviness of the jersey. It does take a bit of playing around with to get it to sit right (as other reviewers have mentioned, there is a lot of fabric) but once you do I think it looks great. This will also be a great transitional dress into autumnwinter. "

" I bought this dress just after giving birth to my son (also called Leighton). It is great as it hides all my lumps and bumps and yet is still stylish. It is a heavy material which makes it hang nicely. I've only worn it once so far but had lots of compliments. "

" The Leighton dress looked amazing in the photos, but sadly is not to be a staple in my wardrobe. The jersey fabric is incredibly heavy, not the usual soft flattering fluid fabric in my other Baukjen dresses. There is a huge amount of fabric too even in the smallest size and if looked bulky and swamped me a little even at 5ft 6. The neckline is very heavy too and not great on a small frame. Dress was good quality though as usual and the raspberry colour was true to the pictures. "

" I loved the look of this dress but when it arrived I was very disappointed with the fit and feel. I ordered a 10 and although the style is loose it was enormous and just sack-like. The front pleating and tie belt are nice touches but the pleating on the shoulders is just too much. It is also far too heavy and fabric laden to really be summer wear.
A pared down version of this 'Grecian' style dress would be great!

" Very disappointed as I normally love a smock dress. I am a slim size 10 and ordered the small. However there was so much material and pleating that I just looked huge with or without the belt. The belt would have been better placed to be worn lower slung on the hips, there is too much material to wear around the waist. Also, there is a seam across the shoulders which form a little point and dont let the shoulder material fall properly, weird. The quality however is fabulous, a lovely heavy jersey, and the blue is gorgeous; not navy but a dip rich blue, please make more in this colour! "
