Do LK Bennett dresses come up small ?

Thank you x

No, not to my knowledge but I've only ever shopped there once a few years ago. It was big if anything.

Mind you I took it back the next day as it was faulty and they were really rude and arsey about a refund so be careful if you're not sure x

Not IME. I am a large 10/small 12, and a 10 there is fine for me.

I think they're spot on. I am an annoying in between size, 6s can be too snug and 8s too loose. I have this dress in 2 colours, one in a 6 and the other an 8 (it was the sales!) and because their sizing s spot on, the 6 is a snug fit and the 8 quite loose. A tip for you though....if there is a dress you like, try and get it from John Lewis ( or house of Fraser) rather than LK bennett themselves. Their service is crap and their returns policy mean.

I want it sent internationally so hope it'll just fit

John Lewis ship internationally. Fingers crossed for you!

They are just right in my experience
Davina is my all time favourite dress- have got 3 different colours blush

I've only ever tried on a couple from there but I seem to remember they do run a bit small - I'd err on the side of caution

wide on the thighs

No idea on sizing but 25% off with this months Marie Claire.x

If anything I'd say sizing in LK Bennett is on the large side. I'm a regular size 10 and get size 10 dresses from there taken in.

MoonlightandRoses Sat 13-Apr-13 21:07:05

I'm in the 'sizing is on the large side' camp (including their shoes - normally I'm a standard 36, but have never had a pair of shoes from there that didn't need insoles/heel grips).

NomDePlume Sat 13-Apr-13 23:08:22

Agree, if anything they are roomy. I have to wear at least a .5 size down in the shoes and generally size down by 1 in their clothing.

SarahGoodwin33 Sat 13-Apr-13 23:27:37

Agree with nomdeplume, shoes are deffo on large side, I'm an 8.5 but 7.5 fit me from lk.
Clothes wise possibly same. I have a 10 skirt from there but am minimum 12 elsewhere.
