THey are pretty good - I wear next size 14 jeans but would never fit into a 14 of anything else - more like a 16-18!! I loooove next jeans/cords!!

next stuff is lovely - i'm a bit confused about where they get their kids sizes from though - if i buy tops for dd a size 4 fits but not for long, and she only just 3!! The troousers a re long though - maybe she's a funny shape lol

what did you get misdee im a size 20 but the trusers dont fit me

I find them very long. I'm 5ft., 4in. and have to use their petites. Otherwise, GREAT stuff!

it turns up tomorrow. will et you know if the trousers fit. tho do some lovely tops upto size 22 tho.

I don't have much from Next, but the trousers I have seem fairly generous. They seem to use very tall skinny children for their kids clothes sizing (no good over washable nappies)

If you wear a size 38D bra, what shirt size do you order? According to the chart, it would be a size 18. I've never ordered anything from Boden before, but 18 seems large for me.

Even when slim, I found Next clothes a problem due to FF cup boobs.

nikcola Mon 21-Mar-05 15:13:48

why do the tops go up to a size 22 but the trousers dont im going to complain its not fair

misdee Mon 21-Mar-05 15:22:50

only the sports style trousers have turned up atm. they are very generous. very comfty. maybe should've ordered a smaller size.

i was going to get some of the jogging bottoms that they do i might get them but i bet they will make my arse look like a tank!

misdee Mon 21-Mar-05 20:43:39

my arse looks like a tank in whatever i wear

They are cut quite generously and quite long. I can get away with an 8 on top and 10 on the bottom , but at 5' 2ish", even their petite stuff is a bit long.

misdee Mon 21-Mar-05 20:48:49

the tops fit lovely. am glad i went for a 22 there, as my boobs are big

nikcola Mon 21-Mar-05 20:55:46
