Where to find clothes in UK size 6?

I have a student visitor to London looking for black suits (trouser or skirt) and /or black dresses-with-jackets in a UK size 6.

It has been a very long time since I wore a size 6 and I had not apreciated how difficult it can be to be that slim. (Too envious?)

Does anyone on TALF know where should could begin?

All of the above, plus for more budget items try Asda, who do a range that goes down to size 4.

So, we all know where to get them. Can we wear them though? ;-)

Thank you all, but do you know if these places have clothes in size 6?

For example M & S says "email me when availble" when you try to select the size 6, which is what the student told me when I suggested Marks & Spencer.

However, I see that Dorthy Perkins does seem to go down to a 6.

The student is a bit diffident, so maybe she just needs to look harder (or eat more).

She tried on a beautiful suit in a size 8 at Hobbs, but the jacket just needed too much alteration and they don't do 6s.

Leagle, I have a skirt from Dorothy Perkins which is size 6 and I bought clothes for friends in size 6 from Top Shop, New Look and Bershka. I think that Next and Zara have clothes in size 6 as well but I'm not 100% sure.

Nurioopta, I "play" between 8 and 10, as long as I don't enter Top Shop! ;-)

When I used to be a bit more weeny, I bought suits from Next petite and Topshop Petite (the widest range was in the main branch at Oxford Circus).
