    I find them pretty normal to be honest.. if I can get into an 18 in NEXT I can pretty much get into an 18 anywhere (apart from M&S .. for some reason the cut of their trousers just doesn't gel with my body)

    Lol Clothes sizes vary depending on how honest I'm being with myself and if I'm trying to squeeze my fat arse into the wrong size but next is pretty average I would say, I find Dorothy Perkins and new look are fair sizes, plus you don't want to spend much on clothes that'll be too big soon!!

    I do find next generous at times & have had to change lots of thigs for smaller sizes have even got a few dresses thay are size 10 from there (which im defo not!) ditto for river island, i tried some denim shorts on there in size 16 at my slimmest last summer (when i was a 12/14) & they were cutting me in two! I sulked the rest of the day. When it comes to clothes in zara i can just forget it whatever size i am!!

    We have a shop in Ireland called Vera Moda and some of the clothes are so lovely in it but I have never been able to shop in it because it is a Mediterranean store and the cut of the tops particularly is for those with really narrow backs, no shoulders and skinny arms!

    i'm right into next now and i say that they're ok size wise. sometimes they come up small on the jeans cause i have a high waist so their waist in normal jeans sit on my hips then there's the muffin top. i have to buy the long cause the regular are too short and the tall too tall unless it's leggings. i can't fit into fitted cotton tops anywhere as i need an 18 cause my back's quite wide even though i measure a 12/14. i also find that the cups they put in tops are not lined up with my saggy boobs so don't fit either and no matter how i hoist they don't fit. :( tops like this one here with the boob bits in it. Buy Frill Sleeve Top from the Next UK online shop i'm sure they're designed for a+b cups only.

    Those tops with boob bits always end up sitting with the line coming across my nipples rather than underneath my boobs. I just don't bother trying them on at all anymore.

    We have Vera Moda in house of Fraser. I love the clothes and they're a good price

    Odd how different clothes fit different people
    I find River Island big- I bought a size 12 last week and had to laugh as I am NOT a size 12 (well yet anyway) x
