Our Melanie cotton linen tiered maxi dress in white is the dreamiest of summer dresses. Featuring tie straps, double lined bodice, pockets and a tiered lined skirt, it's perfect for any occasion. 

You may remember our Christine white linen dress from two summers ago. We took that concept and worked closely with our production partners. With some clever designing, we think we've made it even better.

Melanie features a beautifully constructed bodice with an elasticated section at the reverse for the perfect fit, three cascading tiers for maximum swish, and romantic tie straps. They've been expertly set to cover your bra straps, and can be tied to suit where you want to position the dress. Tie them into bows at the front, on top or at the back (for layering over the top), or tie into a simple knot and leave to trail. If you wear a strapless bra (this is our fave - use code StylingYou15).

Yes, there are pockets! 

The cotton-linen blend fabric means you'll be super comfortable and cool in the summer heat but with a little more wrinkle resistance than 100% linen.

This style is double layered in the bodice, and features a cotton voile lining in the skirt to the second tier, making it not see-through (we still suggest skin-toned underwear).

The tie-yourself-straps are great for styling. Tie them into bows at the front to layer under our Ashleigh stretch boyfriend blazer, for a chic tough pretty look for days at the office. Switch your shoes and remove the blazer and you're ready for a night out! Tie the straps firmly at the reverse and leave to trail, and style with our Cassandra relaxed stretch cotton striped shirt knotted at the high waist so it's in line with the bodice seam to allow the tiered skirt to flow. This is a great look for summer days and casual events with family and friends. Using the same tie method, layer one of our glamorous Fleur sequin cardis. Sparkling silver or gorgeous gold? They both look fabulous back with the crisp white Melanie maxi dress.

PLEASE NOTE - we suggest you stick with the same size you usually wear in tops at Styling You The Label, particularly in tops. It's your bust fit that will make this dress work for you. If you're narrow through the shoulders and back with a smaller bust, you may consider sizing down. The design of the dress flows generously through the body so this will be a fit regardless. If you would like help with sizing, please message us on Chat, socials or email and we will be delighted to help you.

PLEASE NOTE: These are the measurements of the models at the time these photos were taken in August 2023

Sara (usually wears size 10 in SYTL) is wearing size 10. 12 would have been a better fit in the bust. She is 165cm tall. Her bra size is 14DD 105cm; waist 91.5cm; hips 109cm

Stacey (usually wears size 12/14 in SYTL) is wearing size 12. She is 174cm tall. Her bra size is 16DD 105 cm; waist 88cm; hips 112cm

Nikki (usually wears size 12/14 in SYTL) is wearing size 14 in the group photo (because Stacey was in the only size 12 sample). She wears a size 12 in the individual photo, which is a better fit for her bust measurements at the time of the photoshoot*. She is 166cm tall. Her bra size is 16D 109cm; waist 96cm; hips 116cm 

*Nikki's bust measurement is currently 104cm and she's wearing a size 10 in the try on video on this product. This is her current best fit.

Kate (usually wears size 18/20 in SYTL) is wearing size 18. She is 174cm tall. Her bra size is 18D 120cm; waist 107cm; hips 134cm

Styling You The Label is available in sizes 6-20. We're a label cut on a curvy size 12 and then sized up and down from there, so whether you're a size 6 or 20, our designs are cut to accommodate the curves of your bust, hips and tummy. This might make our pieces seem generous but that's because most labels are cut on a non-curvy size 6 or 8, which doesn't necessarily allow for a comfortable fit for most women.

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to work out what size you are in Styling You The Label. We have worked with models of every size we stock, and have included each model's measurements as well as each garment's measurements on each product listing.

We update our model's measurements every time we do a photoshoot, as we all know bodies change. 

Click the Fit tab on each product to get specific details about what each of our model is wearing and whether she's sized up, down or stayed in her regular size. If your measurements match hers then you'll have a better understanding of your size in that garment.

Whenever you're shopping for clothes online, it's a good idea to keep your tape measure handy and have your own measurements written down somewhere (maybe in the Notes on your phone) so you can easily look them up and compare them with that listed on our product pages. 

We're here to help you have the best online shopping experience you've ever had. Email, call, message or chat with us and we'll respond during business hours (8am-3pm, Monday-Friday).
