    Which shops do you find generous/accurate/small on their sizes ?

    Having only shopped mainly at evans or catalogue just wondering!!

    I appear to be in between sizes at the moment. Currently in next jeans size 16 which are loose and fallin down, but M&S size 14 are too tight.

    Any ideas which shop to try - gonna have a look on ebay cos I want to get to a 12 and don't want to buy new things until I'm there.

    Thank you guys for your font of knowledge as usual !!

    Tricky... I find littlewoods very good their South range is great and sizes are usually accurate. Have you tried New Look and Dorothy Perkins? At the moment I am a size22, I haven't started LT yet, so I can only talk for the bigger sizes. I hope this helps. Oh, just thought... what about Primark?

    Primark can be weird for sizes.. like i couldnt get a 16 coat buttoned up in there last night and then another of there 16s was too big

    Dorothy perkins sizes are good!!

    Omg.... I find New Look awful for sizes!! Isnt this weird!

    I find myself creeping up to a 16 in New Look but can get into some 12's in primark and next.... ohh and dunnes which you guys in the UK dont have.

    Where ever I go I struggle in tops tho.... heres hoping when I lose the last stone my boobs get more 'normal'. I would love to buy a dress in a 12.... **dreams** LOL

    H&M and Primark cut small... New Look seems to fit best (fatty section) for me right now, even Evans have gone strange recently, sizes all over the place

    Hi
    I know I'm only a man (!) but I've discovered that I have to try everything I buy on now. I simply don't know my body shape anymore as it has changed quite a bit (woo hoo!) and is continuing to change. I've got emergency stuff at Matalan and Sainsburys for now and will get some decent clothes when I'm at my goal.

    Enjoy the shopping!
    Jon

    How tall are you? I only ask as i was in a Next size 16 and they were getting too big but the size 14 looked too tight on me but when i discovered the petite section the 16 fitted a bit better. I am a shortie though, only 5'2"!
