Kate Kitten's measurements: Bust: 116cm, Waist: 99cm, Hips: 117cm, Height: 170cm.

'Petit Papillon Ruffle Sleeve Top (Pink)': The Ruffle Sleeve Top was Kate's favourite! She was concerned that her bust line might be cut in half or the elastic too tight on the sleeves...but they were a lovely fit! The elastic in the sleeve has lots give and allows for plenty of movement.

'Petit Papillon Bustle Wiggle Skirt': The Bustle Wiggle Skirt fits like a glove! It has a very similar fit and feel to the 'Vicious Kitten' Wiggle Skirt in Black. Very shapely and hides bumps. The size 14 was a firm fit, but not firm enough that Kate would go up a size. However if you would like a little more room to wiggle (and you are between sizes) Kate would recommend going up. 


'Petit Papillon Day Dress': Wearing a size 14, Kate found the Day Dress a dream! Light, breezy and so pretty! Kate felt so comfortable in this Design and loved the fit on the waist! The elastic wasn't tight and created a nice little gather even when stretched for her bust-line. The pockets were very sneaky...they have no bulk and leave a smooth finish. 

'Petit Papillon Cowl Top (Red)': The Cowl Top is a perfect match to the Kitty Knickers, but Kate would wear this top as day or evening wearing also! It is nice and stretchy and ideal for a larger bust, she found a size L to be her perfect fit. One in every colour is a must!

'Petit Papillon Satin Kitty Knickers (Red)': The Kitty Knickers are silky soft and feel so luxurious! The elastic is not at all tight around the thighs (super stretchy) you could easily go down a size if you would like less 'puff' in your bloomers! Kate found a size L to be a lovely fit.
