Most of the stuff is explosion in a paint shop, but I have found a dress I like. Is it more for the petite? The sleeves seem really short.

Can you post a link to the dress?

I find Desigual do-able when you're just wearing one piece, walking into the shop is like Jackson Pollock exploded. But I love the stuff, if only I could afford more than 1 sales piece every three years sad

The sleeves are really long in the picture, I must be an orangatan

I love their dresses. I am size 12 and had to buy a large as it does come up a bit small

sorry I think their stuff is awful

No idea re sizes but I'm afraid I think it's hideous and even if you like the print I think you could soon get tired of it. There are much nicer dresses around.

I hate their stuff too, sorry!

If it's just a jersey knit material, you might be able to just lop off a bit of cuff without having to sew a hem. Or find someone who could re-hem it for you.

I'm forever taking up jeans and trousers to fit my short legs as I'm not built like a giraffe, sometimes I have to do it with tops, too. In fact, thinking about shopping makes me twitch as usually nothing fits all over but just one part of me!

FWIW I LOVE Desigual because it's not bloody boring like Boden and Jigsaw and Reiss and... zzz... sorry, fell asleep.

I have only bought one sleeveless summer dress from there so so can't help on the sleeve side of things, however, just wanted to warn you on sizing. I am normally a loose 8 everywhere else (and a 6 in some places) and I found their 8 snug. If you're buying online I would go a size up. I like the dress you linked to by the way!

They do run small- size up!
