Hiya

Does anyone know what the sizes are like at Miss Selfridge compared to other places?

I'm new to shopping for clothes online. I usually like to try things on...

According to there size guide, my bust is a size 8 my hips are a size 10 and my waist is a size 12

Pretty accurate really, if not a little generous (compared to places like topshop)

Their sizes are really weird. When I were a size 6 I brought this jacket which was really really big for me. It fitted my friend who was a size 12.
Recently I brought a jacket from there which I brought in a size 8. That same friend of mine brought the jacket too but even though she's usually a size 12 she had to buy a size 16. I'd rather just go in the shop and try on the clothes before I buy.

Ditto Sakura-Chan. I can easily get into the Petite ranges, despite being 5'6, but generally the sizings match the sizes I am in most other shops. They also always have enough of the smaller sizes, unlike Topshop which often sells out of 6s/8s/10s etc. I love Miss Selfridge

Generous sizes.
I always end up buying 8s instead of my usual 10s.

ok

I recently bought 3 dress/tops 1 from new look one from river island and one from Bay all in 12s. The thing I find with the new look one is it's a wee bit big and I think it makes me look fat but the bay one is a wee bit tight around my belly =/

may have something to do with the cut/ style of the dresses and the material as well. Though I do find that new look is quite generous with sizing.

I don't know if this'll help at all, but I'm 5'8 and 34-24-34 and both size 8 and 10 usually fit pretty well.

I'd say they're pretty generous in terms of sizing.
