    very becoming

    I see that the phrase 'very becoming' (example, 'that dress is very becoming on you') is rare in American English. Is this phrase common in UK English?

    Re: very becoming

    Welcome to the forum, liometopum.

    The phrase is rather old-fashioned in both varieties of English.
