Marks and Spencer slimming £20 black dress delights shoppers

Marks and Spencer (M&S) shoppers are raving about a “flattering” and “chic” dress that makes the wearer look slimmer.

The dress is versatile enough to wear both day and night and costs just £20.

As the stretchy garment features a tie-waist, it helps to hide lumps and bumps and makes the tummy look flatter, shoppers say.

Fashion fans are also hugely impressed by the budget M&S dress, which features a flattering cut and comfortable fabric.

The dress usually costs £29.50 on the M&S website, but has been reduced to £20, reports Manchester Evening News.

The dress is cut in a regular fit, and features added stretch for comfort.

The round neckline features a keyhole tie for delicate detail, while a slender belt gives flattering definition at the waistline, and makes you look instantly slimmer, shoppers have said.

The dress is available in three different lengths – petite, regular and large.

It comes in sizes from 6 to 24, depending on the length you opt for.

The versatile jersey dress is an ideal transitional day-to-evening wardrobe piece, and can easily be dressed up or down.

M&S recommends pairing the dress with £25 Canvas Lace Up Stripe Trainers for a simple and chilled-back daytime look, or with a “beautiful” £25 Autograph Freshwater Pearl Necklace and a pair of M&S Collection Leather Block Heel Open Toe Mules for a chic yet comfortable evening look.

One five-star reviewer praised the dress, writing: “Size 14, fits perfectly and hides all my bumps, casual dress, but can dress it up too.”

A second enthused: “Lovely comfortable dress. I’m 5ft 2in and it comes to mid calf. Great for casual with chunky boots or more dressy. I jazzed it up with my own colourful belt. Would recommend.”

A third M&S shopper said: “Lovely, easy to wear dress. Wore it on a fancy night out but could also be a fab every day dress! Good price too, feels lovely on and hangs nicely.”

A fourth said: “Lovely versatile dress. Fits well. Lots of compliments when I wore it. Can dress it up with heels or looks great with boots too. Great purchase!”

Somebody else wrote: “Great dress. Easy to wear. Lovely fabric and amazing value for money!”

“Really pleased with this dress – fits good, true to size – long sleeves for colder days coming and comfortable too…what’s not to like,” said somebody else leaving another five-star review.

Somebody else said of the £20 M&S dress: “Lovely soft, comfortable black dress. Very slimming. Arrived promptly and well packaged.”

Some Marks and Spencer shoppers did point out that the fabric on the dress is relatively thin, but as we head into the Spring and Summer months, this could prove to be more of a blessing rather than a curse.

Meanwhile, Matalan is selling a similar version of the M&S dress for £10, though Matalan’s is considerably shorter.

Very’s £18 Strappy Tie Waist Maxi Dress is another alternative for fashion fans wanting more shoulder and arms on show.
