I already have several French linen items from BI which are great for summer. I’m usually size 10 to 12 so after reading the reviews I opted for size S in white which is perfect. The dress is very flattering and stylish and I can’t wait to wear it in summer. An extra bonus is that it is lined.

I love this style and fabric. The colour is such a strong red. I look forward to getting lots of wear from this, especially as the spring arrives. It is a roomy fit so I can wear it a bit earlier in the season with something underneath. Lovely to get it on sale too.

Lovely loose dress. Feels great to wear. Probably could have ordered a size smaller. Make more like this please

This is my third linen shift dress. I have the red and black and just received the white. Obviously I really love this dress. The quality of the linen is superb. I was pleasantly surprised to discover the white one is fully lined (cotton). that is a bonus. I sized down in all three dresses and the fit is perfect for me.

(Posted on 25 May 2022)

Very comfortable and if purchasing go down a size.Lovely to wear.

Love this dress. I now have it in the red and black. About to purchase the white. Lovely cool linen. This is pure quality. I love wearing this dress. I advise going down one size though. I’d read the reviews so downsized and it’s perfect.

My dress is fantastic. It makes me feel like I’m on a cloud. It fits me well. It also gives me that good creased look. It was the white dress it also showed off my tan.

Very nice casual linen dress. Chosen to be worn on hotter summer days. Down side is linen creases giving that look of untidiness. Material a bit see through.

Love the linen, colour and design. Had to Buy 3L due to weight gain from medication but the lightweight fabric and design did not make me feel I was wearing a bigger size.

Absolutely love this dress - I love it so much I bought 3! Ink, red & white. Lovely & cool to wear in the warmer weather. I usually buy L but the M was perfect.

I think I will get plenty of wear out of this dress and love the colour. I did change the size to a smaller one which is a much better fit.

(Posted on 25 Aug 2021)

- Qld

Can style this dressy or casual. It's a pretty ruby red (hard to find) not tomato red, so I love it. Irons and wears well too . It's a looser fit so be aware in sizing.

Beautiful linen. I like the comfort of this dress but downsized for a less volumous look. The rouge is more a lovely pink red

I bought the rouge colour. The fabric hangs well and it washes well. It’s a great Christmas dress. I’m thinking of the blue one now…

Lovely dress. Easy to wear and very comfortable. As a larger woman this fits really well and you feel good in it. I brought the 3L, usually size 20 and it has plenty of room.

This is my first Blue Illusion purchase. I love everything about the dress, the cool fabric, size and the red colour. I’m a size 10 and the extra small size is perfect.

- Busselton WA

So happy with the comfort and sizing of this linen dress. I am a generous size 18 on top and size 20 on bottom and bought the red in 3L for something different as I have so much blue and black in my wardrobe already. So easy to throw on the go. Perfect for hot days and with a denim jacket for cooler evenings. Will be my xmas dress - so comfy and flowy. Love the length & the pockets too!

Absolutely stunning dress, even on my fuller torso. Shop had it with Iris Leaf necklace looked subtlety great and with ragey reds either wine or post box red....look equally good.

(Posted on 29 Mar 2020)

- Wellington

The dress is just as described. It’s very comfortable to wear and I would buy it again if there were more colours.

(Posted on 28 Feb 2020)

I have bought this dress in all three colours. It is flattering - slightly below the knee, flowing silhouette and with sleeves - and the linen is lovely and great for summer. I would love more in designs like this and bold colours, as the yellow is my favourite.

Wore this dress Thursday in 38 degrees temps in Canberra. A lovely silhouette and light linen fabric. Totally comfortable and cool. I bought the chambray colour, but the mustard will look great on people with warm toned skin. Just a stunning dress, think I need to get a backup!

(Posted on 23 Nov 2019)
