want to order a dress would say I am generally a 12 but often buy bigger due to large bust so often buy a 14.
Do you know if next sizing is genrous so should I just stick with a 12 or play it safe and get a 14.
Ordering from overseas so not easy to return.

I'd say it's fairly generous usually so would go for a 12. Please don't be cross at me if it doesn't fit...

Ah see I came on to say I find their stuff a bit small. I even had to buy a dress in the tall range (am only 5'6!) just so it was long enough.

I would also say generous but not so much with their trousers.

I think Next sizing is pretty generous. I am a 16 in most shops, but in some Next stuff I'm a 14, dresses and tops mainly. I'm still a 16 in Next trousers/jeans as I carry the extra weight on my tummy sad

I find their sizing really generous, especially for trousers/skirts. I'd go for a 12 or it could be huge on you.

Very generous. I'm a 14 everywhere but have to buy 12's in next
