Quick question that I wonder if anyone can help with. I want to order a dress and have found one that I like on Phase 8 website and another at Reiss. I don't live in the UK so am going to have to order without trying anything on. They are both pretty expensive so I really don't want to get it wrong. I am a size 10 Hobbs in trousers but 8 in Hobbs dresses, slightly smaller than size 10 Oasis and all over the place at jigsaw (size 8 in their dresses but size ten trousers suits can be too tight). From that, can anyone work out what size I would need from Phase 8 and Reiss?
Yep, Phase Eight are generous in my experience -- the 8 may even be too big for you. Definitely don't order a 10. You sound like a Reiss 8 -- I have Hobbs and Reiss dresses in size 8 which are pretty similar, size-wise.
