Others were more distracted with supposed design flaws, with one poster saying: “Lovely dress, no pockets. How come you design clothes for tiny babies with pockets but don’t bother adding them for adult women? Gah!”
Another commented: “Looks lovely on her, looked shocking on me!” while another said: “These dresses don’t suit everyone”.
One user added: “Pretty dress but on a shorter person I would be swamped by it – Who on earth is designing your clothes?”
