Lo and behold, it beat the competition hands down! I ordered one size up, in the hope that it would skim, rather than tent, which turned out to be the right decision (I did wear this M&S minimiser bra with it too, but it still looks fine without). The finishing isn't perfect, but for the price, it's still amazing value. The beading is dramatic enough for a stunning night out look with a chic updo, but subtle enough, along with the delicate nude shade, to make it hot summer day (anyone remember those?) appropriate too. And it's super comfy! I was surprised to see some people on ASDA Direct complaining that it was too short (and see-through - which you can see it isn't, camera flash on full power or no!) - I'm 5'7 and it's still only a few inches above the knee on me - pretty much perfect for an authentic flapper look!

Anyone else got flapper fever?
