Collectif do lovely vintage style dresses that would be perfect for a wedding. They go up to size 22 but I find the Dolores style very generous in the bust area as it has a good stretch. Sorry I cant do links but if you have a look at FullerfigureFullerbusts blog you will see what I mean!
Yeah, the Delores really does come up massive, the size I ordered gave my bust measurement as the top end of the size it would fit but it was about 1 1/2 sizes too big when it came. Including the stretch it could even have been 2 sizes too big. It was too long on me (also 5'4"), almost maxi length but don't be put off by that - a seamstress could take it up really easily.
I love the bouquet print and am waiting for it to go into the sale! I got the hibiscus Dolores which is also lovely-its a dark grey which really makes the red and green flower print pop. Although I don't find it as stretchy as my polka dot or cherry print Dolores so yes I would email them for exact measurements.
Per Una Striped Fit & Flare Belted Dress £45.00 Product Code: T623139H. My sister is size 20/22 with huge boobs. She bought this the other day and it was very flattering . Not sure if that is helpful but just thought I'd say. Sorry I can't link from the marks app.
