Ok so I have been hunting for the perfect dress for a couple of evening do's i have coming up, so am wanting a dress not 'too weddingy' as its just the evening, but something still smart and ok for nice restaurants etc. Have seen 3 I like on KM website but not sure about what size to order as have heard they come up small. Im between a size 10/12 but more often 12 really. Im small up top but have hips, defo a pear! If i'd usually order a 12 should i order a 14 from there? Never owned a KM dress before smile

Will do some links in a mo if i can!

Thanks in advance for any advice.

KM sizes are v small and have gotten more so in the last few years!

I have a few KM things that are size 8 which I bought a few years ago and they still fit however now I realistically need a 12 - it doesn't make any sense!

KM does a size 6 and to be honest my it could surely only fit a child! Don't think I could get one leg in!!

If you have small waist and boobs I reckon a 12 will be fine.

I usually wear an 8 -10 and had to buy the 10 which is fine except for the snooty sales girl who looked me up and down and sneered saying " your never an 8, not sure your even a 10" .... angrybitch I would have walked but I loved the dress and the KM in HofF didn't have any left.

Wonky - the KM staff are invariably awful. They make you feel like you really should go on a diet starting straight away!!

They are all nice but I really like the first one in the darker colour.

I am a 12/14 with a huge bust (GG) and the 14 was a complete non starter in one of their evening-y dresses. Glad to hear that they are known for it and I'm not just lardier than I thought!
