I've fallen in love with so many of the dresses after seeing one mentioned on here.

Has anyone bought one from there? What are the sizes like? Looking at the guides my waist would be a 12 but hips would be a 14. I'm looking at the fitted dresses, 3% spankex/ 5% elastine type.
Would I better getting a 14 or are they quite stretchy? I want them all! grin

I just bought one and I love it. I bought a size 18, I'm a size 18 but pear shaped. It's a bit big on top, haven't decided whether to swap it or maybe have tailored.

The quality is lovely.

Collectif sizes can be very variable! There's a Facebook selling page where people often advise on sizing for specific items. I've got a few things & found them pretty true to size and generous if they're stretchy (e.g. Trixie dresses with stretch) Quite generous on the bust!

Collectif sizing is a bit weird. I’m a 12 in most places, 14 if it’s something fitted over the thighs/upper arms.

I have Collectif dresses ranging from 8-12, which all fit. I generally go for a size 10, so one size down, and that fits well.

I have a couple of their dresses. I’m a 16 but with a small bust. I find that can be a problem on some of their dresses.

Thanks everyone.
Trixie was one of the ones I was looking at.
