Editors Notes

Chesca offers a fashionable collection for sizes 12-24. At Chesca, the emphasis is on fit, and making the wearer feel attractive, comfortable and confident, regardless of their size.

Every garment in their range is fitted by the owner, Jacqui Green, who checks the fit of the bust, waist and hips, to make sure that it looks feminine and flattering over natural lumps and bumps.

The brand offers beautiful fabrics and feminine bias cuts, flattering fluid jersey styles and a hint of stretch to shape the figure and accentuate curves.

Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good quality product Needed a dressy dress to wear when renewing wedding vows and this is perfect. Has a nice jacket that covers the 'bingo wings' . 03 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cornelli dress and jacket After reading other reviews about sizes I ordered the 12 (I normally wear a 14 from Monsoon, Next, matalan). It fitted well but I had doubts so went on to order the size 10. It fits like a dream. The dress is beautiful , it drapes the hips and flows downwards. It's not too tight, it fits perfectly for the curvy figure and flows when you walk. This is to be my wedding dress and as a 40 + woman, I feel and look fantastic in it. I also bought the jacket which complements the dress perfectly. 24 February 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Beautiful dress, very poor sizing I am a size 10/12; sometimes a 14 dependent on fit. Based on the online reviews I ordered a size 10. To say the dress swamps me would be an understatement. I would say the size 10 is closer to a 14, possibly even bigger as it has a lovely stretchy 'under' dress which would probably accommodate many sizes without looking awful. The dress itself is beautiful and would flatter most body shapes. I returned the dress, but I really wish the sizing was better or Chesca offered a smaller size. 24 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely dress I wore this for my recent wedding, and felt very feminine in it. I am usually a dress size 20, but ended up wearing a 16, so the cut is VERY generous. If you're pear shaped, this dress will really flatter your figure. 10 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sadly, I was not tall enough! This was a beautiful dress, which fitted well, (it is a generous size, I took a smaller one than usual). However, it was too long for me, and to shorten it would have spoilt the shape and fall of the skirt, so sadly, I had to return it. 28 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by most beauiful dress We decided to get married on the 8th of nov x as I am an older bride what dress !!!!!!! Then I found this read reviews brought the dress x 2 sizes smaller then I would normally buy x when it came it wsa nicer than on website x on the day of wedding put on the dress and it was perfect x everyone loved the dress x I felt really good x would give it 20 out of 10 x thank u john lewis xxx 13 November 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Quality Dress I ordered this dress, as I thought it looked really nice and had read the reviews and people had said how beautiful it was. I ordered a size down from my usual dress size of 16 based on reviews, when it arrived it was Still too big, so I returned it and ordered a 12! The dress was pretty and good quality, and worth the money, but I felt a little too 'frumpy' in the dress. (I am 36) It just seemed to hang and not really show off my curvy bits. If you like the dress it is still worth ordering to try, sadly,it just simply wasn't for me 28 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful dress I originally purchased the barley coloured dress,it was lovely but being blonde I felt it was a little lacking in colour.However the grey one is just what I is for my son's wedding next feels really special and hangs beautifully.I just can't decide what colour accessories to have now! 19 November 2012
