This beautifully detailed cowl back silhouette has been a winning shape for us, so when we saw this Magenta fabric it had to be done!! With contrast black waist beading, dark pewter shoulder embellishment and stunning cowl back detail the 'Maeve' midi is fabulous from every angle! Ideal when sitting at a Wedding or special occasion, your dress will look incredible front and back!! 

The back detail is high enough to still wear a bra, fastening up the back with a concealed centre back zip & the cowl piece sits over the top.  A simple V neck front is easy to wear and slim long sleeves give a little arm coverage for Spring days. 


FIT NOTES: Model is 5ft 6 and wears a UK size 8.  We recommend to take your usual size or if in between sizes go smaller as this is not overly small fitting & has a little stretch.

Dress is fully lined & fastens at the back with a centre back concealed zip. 

Dress does not have cups, but can be worn with a bra as the back is high enough + the cowl back piece covers over any bra strap too.

Love this Dress!!!

As always this dress is fabulous! Perfect fit and comfortable to wear!

Ellyn (Bristol, GB)
Amazing quality and fit!

I bought this for myself as a little treat as I’d lost some weight and I’m going on a cruise at the end of the year. When I put it on I could have cried at how good I felt in it, it’s so nicely cut, really good quality and lining and the design that allows for a bra is so clever as this is something I worry about if I’m wearing something low cut at the back. It’s the most perfect dress and I’ve ordered a different dress too as I was so impressed with the quality.
Also, I love that in the description it gives information as to whether you should size down etc. glad I found this website.
