When it comes to dresses I am a Bulk Buyer. And one dress that I particularly love is the Collectif Dolores doll dress. and so when Collectif had a sale on just after Christmas and so I decided to snap up a Dolores Doll Dress in red polka.

This was a fairly restrained move, but one I did not regret once the dress turned up!
I decided to go for a UK14 this time, based on the fact that my 18s and 16s are a little roomy now thanks to a few inches of weight loss, and the beautiful CurvyWordy wears a 12.

Here is how the dress looked on me:

As you can see the dress fits my waist and my bust perfectly and looks great even without a belt.IMG_3223

Red is a colour that I wear a lot and I’m chuffed to add this spotty number to my collection – I can see it serving me very well on my impending holiday!

My ever so slight weight loss and hair tidy up at Rush.co.uk make this an outfit that I am so happy in! The dress actually felt like it had been made for me and I’m so glad I now have it in a size that fits my bust and waist perfectly. Although, for curiosities sake I had to add a belt JUST to see how it looked…

And I almost feel like this is another dress that I could wear beltless… well, it’ll be nice to have the option anyway!

Have you tried a Dolores dress or another Collectif dress? How did you find the fit? Do you have a dress that feels tailor made? Let me know!
