The 'Magic' dress?

When F&F got in touch recently to see if I wanted to review a dress from their new 'Magic' range I have to admit that I was intrigued. This dress promises to 'smooth the tummy, shape the bottom and thighs and define the silhouette' which are some pretty big promises for one dress and I have to say I was pretty dubious! The dress features an under layer that is supposed to act like Spanx to smooth away the lumps and bumps but this ends up making the dress very tight. When it came to putting it on, I really struggled and it looks like other people found the fit very tight too, I guess if you just squash everything down it makes it more streamlined, right?! 

Dress: c/o F&F, shoes: Office
Despite that though, once you get the dress on I do really like it. The colour is great and I love shift dresses, especially for work. I have reordered the dress in the next size up and I know that it will get a lot of wear at work when I have important meetings (you can't go wrong with fitted dresses!) Hopefully sizing up will give me a bit more wriggle room ;) 

A better look at the colour- I really love forest green, especially in the Autumn! Whilst the fit of this dress was completely bizarre and I'm not entirely convinced by the 'magic' layer, I really like the colour and I can't wait for my replacement frock to arrive! 

P.S. This post was done in collaboration with F&F.

That colour is just perfect on you! What an idea, clothes with hidden spanx!? Room to wiggle is always a good thing so paws crossed you'll be completely happy with the new size. :)

You look amazing, the colour is perfect on you! You look stunning. Hope the new size is more comfortable for you, nothing worse than feeling uncomfortably squashed, nice to have a bit of room in a dress! xo

Well I think you look amazing anyway, so no amount of "magic" would change that in my eyes! Wow, just read the reviews on the website and lots of people thought the sizing was a bit odd, but I guess when you've found the right one for you it works? <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

This colour looks amazing on you!
I couldn't cope in something tight all day either. Hopefully the next size up will be perfect for you. xx
