Thank you so much to the lovely lady who helped me find an outfit.She was extremely patient with me as I am not an 'of the peg' size.'Eventually, I chose a beautiful dress which I am very happy with and will also be able to wear for other occasions.

I was absolutely amazed. It was a very helpful and successful visit. Jo was fantastic from the moment we arrived to when we left. Nothing seemed too much trouble especially considering the covid restrictions. The choice of outfits was breathtaking, from style to colour, almost overwhelming but with Jo advising us, I got the perfect outfit and hat!!Thank you very much.Sarah Hale

Really friendly and helpful staff but not in the least bit pushy. One visit to Compton House of Fashion and my complete Mother of Bride outfit was sorted.
