This dress is fabulous. I'm a size 10 but usually but a dress size down because I like to be sucked in. However after reading that the dress material is tight, I followed the Motel sizing guide and bought a 10, which was the closest fit to my measurements. I'm really glad that I did, as the material is quite tight (it's velvet beneath the sequins!), so a size down would've been much too tight.
My only issue with this dress is that the velvet material is quite hot and restricting. I would've much preferred it to be made from something more figure-shaping and less likely to cause over-heating in a club. Great for outdoor parties or winter events though.

Hello, could someone help me for he sizing? usually, in strech bodycon dresses, I am a size 12. But my measures are : 95/76/103 so I would like to order size 14 for the gabby dress following the customer reviews. I am 5'8. Do you think size 14 is the right choice? thank you so much for your help
Motel: With the Gabby Dress she is rather bodyhugging so we recommend sizing up rather than down if in doubt! x
Yet to wear...

Got sucked in by the beauty of this dress from the images. I did plan to wear it on a night out back in feb but when it came to actually wearing the dress I hit a few problems.
The material is so thick and stiff and heavy that there's only ever gonna be one month you can wear this in without boiling alive; december.
Really wishing I had opted for the sleeveless version instead.
Also being curvy myself; big boobs, small waist, and actually having an arse it rides up. So dancing is out of the boat. It is a little stretchy though so that helps with the curves. Couldn't quite believe how short it came up anyway, and I'm not by far the tallest person.
It is however sooooo beautiful with the colour, so a good dress for making a statement in cold weather somewhere hopefully without stairs (otherwise you'll be flashing your fancy underwear)
I'll be waiting until the weather gets cold again before I try this dress on again.

Hi just wonder if anyone can help ? Is this dress stretchy ? I'm 2 different sizes from top to bottom! Just wondering what's the best size to order
Motel: We recommend sizing up with the Gabby Dress if in-between sizes x

Absolutely gorgeous dress, fits just perfectly! Got it for my 18th and I'm in love with it, great dress for going out
Not amazing for the price

While the dress is lovely the material is so thick so for going out/clubbing this is not ideal at all as it's just disgustingly hot! It's also very very short so don't think about dropping anything you won't be able to pick it up!

Ordered this dress yesterday on 3-5 day shipping and it arrived today! I am a usual size 8 but I ordered a size 10 and it fits perfectly. Only downside is the V shaped back seemed to be lower down on the website than it is in person, but overall it's a lovely dress! Sequins are very secure and none fell off after many times of tugging it on and off haha

I bought this dress for my 18th and I did get loads of complements whilst wearing it. The colour is beautiful and it is definitely very eye catching. Good quality too. However, I am just over 5'9 and a UK 8 so sizing was a problem. Both the small options were very very short on me. I think really there should be a 'tall' option for this dress and thats why I can only rate it a 4/5. But would definitely recommend if 1) you like to be daring and 2) you dont mind very short dresses. Also don't eat before wearing this as the material will cling to your food belly!!

Looks beautiful on website and lovely colour in real life. However, the 10 comes up a little small, and the fabric is very thick and awkward to wear. There is no flexibility. Also a little bit too short - you don't want to bend over! I'm 5'4 and it was short for me! Not a brilliant fit on curvy figures but worth a try because everyone is different!
