Our bestselling lace Bardot is reimagined in classic black - ideal for the end of Summer, transitioning into Autumn. 

The Tropez dress is crafted from a premium quality crochet lace in oversize floral, with appliqué 3D effect across the bardot neckline. Showing off a little skin, whilst giving some coverage to the arms with gathered puff sleeves. 

Elasticated at the shoulders for easy comfortable wear, the dress is designed to be able to move easily and stay comfortably in place when wearing. 

A fitted grosgrain ribbon waistband gives a flattering fit, with a long mid-maxi length skirt (depending on height)

The fabric is beautifully detailed, heavy weight & gathered b at the waist for good movement & coverage. Dress is lined but not overly heavy - great for Summer occasions & into Autumn.

It's an easy piece to dress up or down - we styled with simple sleek sandals & gold clutch for a Wedding look (would look great with a headpiece added!) but it works just as easily with a lower block heel sandal for day-to-night style.  


The Tropez dress could also work as a maternity style, due to its loose skirt silhouette - the waistband could sit above the bump, with the full skirt flaring out below.  If wearing for maternity we'd generally recommend to take 1 size up for a comfortable fit. 


Our model is 5ft 7 & wears a UK size 8

Dress fastens with a concealed side zip & is fully lined

We recommend to take your usual size  - if in between sizes we'd advise to go bigger as the lace is rigid (although shoulders elasticated) and the waistband is fitted rather than stretchy.

Lovely but too big

Lovely dress but too long and too much heavy material.

Fabulous dress

Gorgeous quality, really flattering. I ordered a size down as I'm in between sizes and the larger size was out of stock but it's perfect. Love it
