Just that really! Does it come up big/small? Where is it similar to? Eg m&s = big

I think it generally comes up large.

Yes, it's generally quite generous. Also they have lots of their clothes in slightly stretchy fabrics so its more accommodating. I consider phase eight the larger woman's friend for smart wear.

Oh balls, I was hoping you'd say it was normal-small. There's a dress I like in the sale but only in a 12 and i'm a 10-12. Do you think it'll be too big?

It think it would be too big. Which dress is it? You may be able to get it at John Lewis, Debenhams or House of Fraser.

Thanks Dexter-I've just checked them all and none of them have it in the right colour and size. I've ordered it from Phase Eight and a couple of others in different sizes, so we shall see. It is the dress someone linked to on a thread I started about lace dresses, there are other nie ones people have linked to so it won't be the end of the world, but it is such a bargin....i'm too much of a sucker for a bargin at the moment wink

Generous, definitely.
