I ordered a small from there a few weeks back and it was around a size 14 - the waist was a full 5 inches bigger than their size chart, so I'd say it comes up on the roomy side from my rigourous sample of one of their frocks. I'd be tempted, if I were you, to go for a medium.

thanks I am very norky and have smallish waist,was there spare room up top?

And yet I bought a GP skirt which was insanely small. I think their sizing is simply all over the place...

Yes spare room up top too - I'm blessed in that region and you could have fitted DH in there with me!

Given what thepurplepenguin says it might be worth emailing them and asking for the garment measurements - why they don't put these on the website is beyond me!

I've also found their tops very generous.

Not had a problem before but I ordered a couple of tops from their sale a couple of weeks ago and had to send them both back as they were absolutely HUGE. I mean ridiculously big. I imagine that's why they were so reduced, everyone kept sending them back as they didn't fit.
