The floaty, relaxed dress is a hit with shoppers thanks to its asymmetrical dip hem and pockets (POCKETS!) and the fact it’s made from breathable, lightweight fabric. Perfect for the super warm weather we’re experiencing right now.

Taking to Instagram, a spokesperson for Magic Linen wrote at the time: “Meghan Markle choosing our Toscana dress is an amazing achievement and a huge validation for our brand.
“And yet, it caught our little company off-guard. We are completely stunned by the amount of orders we are receiving from you.
“Thank you so much. Our team is rescheduling summer vacation and rushing back to fulfil all your orders, but since all of our products are handmade to order, for the next few weeks we will have longer processing times.
“We ask you for forgiveness and patience while we are catching up.”

The dress ended up getting over 500 reviews on site, with one declaring it “the perfect dress!” and another writing: “I have this dress in black and white and absolutely love both. So easy to wear, washes beautifully and so easy to iron. They can be dressed up to go from day time to evening. Love them.”
