I have missed out on the dress

I do it every year and don't seem to learn: there's no point in waiting for the Jigsaw sales because by the time they start, anything worth buying is out of stock. I had my eye on this dress for work: www.jigsaw-online.com/product/ink-ditsy-print-shift-dress/J27672_BL010

I am only 5.2" (pear shaped, size 10) so the length would have been perfect for me. Also shift dresses suit me and I like that this dress is sleeved.

Has anyone seen anything similar? Dresses from the likes of Oasis and Warehouse quite simply don't suit me, ever, plus they tend to look cheap. I am too short for Hobbs and Jaeger.

Really really need some new work dresses which I will most likely wear with boots.

Have you emailed jigsaw/looked on eBay?

I am pear shaped and shift dresses don't fit me properly. To get them over my hips means that the top is way too baggy.
Are you sure you are pear shaped?

Stock info for a small (size 10). You can either phone your nearest branch and request that they transfer the garment to them for you to try (takes up to 10 days ) or you can buy over phone from branch and they will post out to you.

How on earth did you do that Magic??? Thanks!! I will give them a call

Bunbaker, I am overall quite petite and have always been tiny from the waist up with small breasts. Used to be a size 8 from the waist up and a size 10 from the waist down with a big (proportionally) bum and very thick thighs. I am slightly more proportioned now as I have become heavier and wider with age but I still think of myself as a pear shape. Well cut shift dresses skim over my heavier parts. It can be a challenge to find dresses that aren't too lose on the upper body and Jigsaw usually work pretty well for me.

Fair few in London too. Their stock checker on the website is great.
