    Hi all wasn't sure where to post this so just put it in here. I discovered long ago that River Island's sizes were a bit weird but later found out not many people knew and so assumed they had gained weight so I thought I'd post about it to avoid any panic if ever anyone shopped there. Basically it goes like this. I'm using jeans as an example:

    If your a size 14 so a 42" in River Island thats a size 16.

    If your a size 16 so a 44" in River Island thats a 18
    etc.

    So what ever size you are in most other shops. In River Island your one up.

    Now I love River Island clothes especially the jeans so I just wanted to post this so if anyone shopped there they didnt panic thinking they had gone up a dress size like I and so many friends did before we realised. I don't know why thir sizes are ike this and wish they weren't but just thought I'd post the info for those who weren't aware. xxxxxxxxx

    btw it also has a good effect aswell as If thinking your a 16 you fit in to a river Island size 16 jean then in reality your actually a 14 and that two makes you feel great xxxx

    I've got a birthday party to go to at the end of May so I've bought myself a beautiful size 10 dress and I WILL fit into by then. and when ever I feel like giving up I takes it out the wardobe and hold it against myself knowing how great it will feel once I can get inside it.xxxx
