    OMG! There's a 5 inch waist variation across all of the different brands :eek::eek::eek:

    They really need to sort this out - you would think standardisation would be legally required (a bit like weights and measures with alcohol). Ok, so maybe that's a bit extreme, but I bet the people responsible have never had the experience of going into a changing room with a size you're already ashamed about having picked up to find you can't the darn thing past your ankles :cry:

    Interesting read - thanks for sharing!

    Wow, that is a lot of difference!
    No wonder different clothes fit differently and you have to pick up different things in different sizes, even from the same shops.. they should really standardise it more.
    A size should be a size, regardless of where it's from!

    I bought an oasis size 14 dress on the net. It's so small looks like a 10 lol. Then another 14 from warehouse looks so big aaaah seriously it's crazy.

    I wondered why dress sizes were so different. Its horrible when you go into one shop and your a size 16 and it fits but then you go into another and an 18 won't even get past your ankles.

    Really usefull post! Thanks! xx

    There is a reason I prefer men's jeans. I can actually just go in and buy the size that fits my measurements! I wish women's did the same thing, as I prefer the shape of women's jeans...

    I had a box of size 14 (US) jeans that fit me 2 years ago, and I was laying them out one on top of the other to see which were the 'big' 14's and which were the 'small' ones. There were variations of up to 2 inches in the waist, but the main thing that was different are the thighs. Even though they are the same 'cut' of jeans, the thighs in some are skinnier than others, meaning some won't fit until later (probably too late, by then the waist will be too big...)

    I find it really odd, when you are on the same shop and the black jeans fit in your size but not the indigo colour very strange?? Always think they or say they must of put the wrong label in it ;) x

    Maybe I do already (only at weekends mind you), it's a real pain squeezing into a size 8 dress and the suspenders chaff on my legs ;)

    I reckon they are a 7.5.
    But it is a bit of a nightmare getting that size, so a size 8 it will have to be for now :eek:
