Thinking of getting one. I'm on the large side (size18). Not ordered from them before so wondering about their sizing and quality. Thanks

The ones I have:true to size, beautifully cut, very very nice quality material. smile

Thank you Dilidali, I think I will order as free returns. Hopefully they are very forgiving with a good bit of stretch.

I hope you like it, op. I am wearing a meandem dress today that I got in last year's winter sale - worn and washed it to death and it still looks great. I think it's the only jersey fabric I've ever had that hasn't bobbled plus it gives me a fabulous shape and makes me feel like a fifties movie star!

I've just got 2 boyfriend tees from them.
Lovely quality, very stretchy.

Several of the women on the mnv thread have them, and say the quality is great.

Yes, agree with the others, fantastic quality. I'm wearing my cowl neck dress today.

I'd say the tighter dresses are true to size, the more flowing ones I tend to size down.

I just took a look at the website - all seems very boxy? Would it suit a 14/16 hourglass?
OP - what dress were you thinking of getting as I could only see one?

Looks like they've popped all their dresses (on sale) over to AW13 outlet. I think a lot of their clingier dresses look great on both curvy and straight figures TBH.

Carrie , what is the link for the sale dresses ? thanks

homeaway Wed 05-Feb-14 15:02:36

It is ok i just saw the tab on the site itself.

Well ladies I have taken the plunge and ordered two dresses in the sale, the cowl neck one and twist front bandage one. So fingers crossed I can squeeze my size 18 bod into them. I come back and post when they arrive.

I ordered a dress in the sale and the quality of the material is nice but the cut is very meh....unflattering. So not wildly impressed. But the returns are free so why not try?
