I'm just about to order a dress and was wondering if they come up on the big or small size. I'm a small 16 / large 14 at the moment, but getting smaller. So it would be great to able to get the 14 and it last a bit longer.

I am normally a size 6 but I wear the Phase 8 size 8. So I would say their sizes come up small. Then again, the dresses can be stretchy so you should be able to take a bigger size than normal.

I ordered a couple of party dresses from them at Christmas in two sizes. One was a fairly straight shift dress type and the other was a waisted full skirt, so different shapes altogether. Both came up slightly generous and I was able to fit comfortably into the smaller size.

I had a size 14 phase eight and wore it until about seven months pregnant! Stretchy ones look great. Def get size 14.

Quite generous, I'd go for the 14.

I find them huge. I am a borderline size 8 (as in some shops I am a size 10) and their size 8 is gigantic on me; they don't do size 6 so I can never buy from them. I am also very short and their clothes seem to be a better fit for taller women.

Thank you! I've just ordered the 14.

If you're after a bargain, it's this:

Lovely dress. They do come up quite large so I think the 14 was a good choice.
