A beautiful maxi dress for work or play. Great on the beach, but looks just as good with a blazer in the boardroom. This mock wrap dress has cap sleeves with gathered shoulder detail and side pockets. The soft fabric uses CoolFresh to keep you cool and fresh, and is low maintenance so you don't need to iron it. HotSquash hidden CoolFresh technology: cool, fresh (anti-odour), breathable, easycare, no need to iron, very quick drying.

HotSquash clothes are specially designed to be low maintenance. They do not need tumble drying as they dry so quickly
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Emma Good for heat but low quality
I can't make up my mind about this dress. I bought it for a business trip to India and it kept me cool and modest in 40 degree heat but the sizing is odd. I bought my normal size (12# and found the top a little too baggy but the waist band too high and too tight. The length, however, was perfect for me #5'7"). Because of the odd elasticated waist it would be quite unflattering for ladies with a rounder tummy. Unfortunately after only 5 wears the fabric on the back is getting bobbly which I think is very poor for the cost of the dress.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Jacks Very poor quality, very unflattering
So very disappointed with this dress. After the other reviews I was so excited to receive this - I confidently bought it in blue and black at the same time!
If you are any larger than a 12 and have anything in the way of hips or stomach that sit anything other than completely flat then this dress will do you NO FAVOURS. The waist is really high which I was not expecting and is a very odd cheap elastic arrangement. Could be so much more and for the money it should be.
I live overseas and thus can not return my purchases which disappoints me greatly - will give them away I think. And as for 'clever' fabric - the climate where I am is 28 degrees everyday, I notice absolutely no difference in how I feel in this dress to any others. Do not waste your money. Buy a cheap primark alternative - it will be more flattering!

Perfect dress for summer. Does come up big but I'm a big girl so I do not mind :-). Suits my curvy figure. And great for nursing a baby! Dress up with a fab belt and sandals or just add flip flops for a lovely day look. I receive compliments off of strangers when wearing this dress. I have three in different colours now :-)
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sue H Great for holidays!
I ordered the dress to take on holiday.
It was good quality, easy to care for, and cool and soft against your skin for hot weather. Flattering design too!
Would recommend however maybe get a smaller size than usual, as the fit is generous.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Fiona elegant and easy to wear
I have recently returned from a trip to Malaysia which involved some jungle trekking as well as some beach resorts. I was keen to find anything which would be cool and practical but also elegant. I bought two of these dresses, one in black and one in grey and they were incredibly useful! The fabric is soft and drapes really nicely but you don't feel hot or clammy (and I was in humidity of 90%). I simply rolled these dresses up and stuffed them in my luggage, no creases, no need to wash and iron, just pull on.
The style is great for walking around a town or going to a restaurant or bar in the evening. To add some definition, I wore with a belt. I took a couple of belts with me, one wide and one thin and that really helped.
I really liked these dresses ... so much so that I am just looking at the winter weather clothing ...
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Goldilocks Nice colour but nothing else
I ordered this dress as it looked long, flowing and feminine. However it is very large for its size and basically looks like a large mans T shirt. sleeves are too square, and the fabric clings like a thick T-shirt, and does nothing for the female shape. Very disappointed so sent back.
