Can anyone tell me what phase eight sizing is like seen a coat in the sales online. I'm tall and take a 14-16 depending on shop

I think it's bordering generous but not outrageously so. So I would go for the 14 in your case.

Agree with pp, tending towards generous.

Another one saying they size generously. I am a 14 in most shops but can look nice in a Phase Eight 12.

Aw crap.
I was going to come on and say they come up small, so it seems I deluding myself about what size I really am.

I also think they're a bit snug, I'm a size 12-14 and have a few formal dresses that are a 14

That said, id always size up slightly with a coat anyway so you can fit a jumper underneath

Thank all the problem is always length of arms and how broad I am. I'm probably more size 12-14 but need to size up if it's not the tall section so going to order a 14 and hope the arms are a decent length smile

I would have said they are fairly accurate! I've had problems with trousers etc since having a baby and found a size 12 quite good. Not too generous but not stingy.
