I'm normally an 8-10 in dresses (32"chest and 26"waist). Anyone familiar with their sizing? Does it run large, small, TTS?

I think relatively true to size/ slightly generous

I'm usually a 10 but go for 8 in Reiss. Some designs are a little odd though and might fit in one place but not in another. Apparently they're about to overhaul their sizes and make them a bit more alike!

If you're an 8-10 usually I bet you're an 8 there max.

I'm an 8-10 and always an 8 in Reiss dresses. Even with that I've often had to get them taken in.

I may go to the store just to be safe.

I'm an 8-10 but an 8 is generous can fit into a 6 on a good day so I would say it's def generous sizing.

Dress size comparison site, which has Reiss on it.

That's handy, thankyou!

I just can't imagine fitting a size 6 dress with a 26" waist???
Then worried it would smother my boob area.
Probably need to try on!

Yes, if you're normally an 8-10 an 8 is probably fine for you

They are big but random. I tried a dress in 2 colours and was a different size in them.

Reiss is the WORST for vanity sizing. I had a pair of jeans in a size 4 one year, bought same style in different colour next year and had to donate them to my size 8 mother. You will definitely have to try it on.
