I've done my measurements and according to their website I need a size 18 or 20. Do their dresses really come up that small? I'd usually wear a 14!

Their sizing does come up small. So I would de get th esize you need. There isn't a lot of give in the material. Hope this helps.

Yes they do. They are very true to the measurements. I went with the size that fitted my bust and had waist taken in by local tailor. Lovely dresses I get lots of compliments in mine.

I think I must be especially thick round the waist as looking at the sizing again I'll need a 22 which will then be big on bust & huge on hips. I'm a 34G on top so not exactly small. Are her dresses only cut to fit a certain shape do u think? They are so beautiful & would be ideal for a summer wedding I'm going to.

I have three VoH dresses. I am a size 10 and wear a size 14 in VoH. I have also needed to get the halterneck taken in on each of the dresses, I think they are designed for curvy ladies and I do not have the boob or height needed for how long the halternecks are!

I have the boobs just need to lose the belly! Going to have a look on eBay see if I can get a pre-loved dress a bit cheaper.
