We are an independent fashion boutique based in the centre of Dorchester, Dorset specialising in stylish clothing for ‘real’ women sizes 10-32. We passionately believe that every woman has her own, individual style regardless of shape or size, so if you haven’t visited us yet and you’re looking for a warm, friendly environment that welcomes you to browse and shop, come along!

At 'Figure Eight' we understand that a busy lifestyle can leave little ‘me’ time but pop in to us and we’ll whisk you away to a shopping experience that makes the most of those moments and solves your fashion needs!
