COS Sizing

Does anyone know what Cos sizing is like? I ordered a small in a jumper which is the equivalent of a 10-12. Medium is 14-16. I'm a definite 10. Jumper feels a fit fitted but maybe it's supposed to be. Does anyone fnd them true to size?

I found them completely bonkers.
I tried cardigans, tshirts and a drapey top last year.

I'm a 14-16 and the tshirts were too small in a large but the cardigans and the draped top were huge, and I needed a medium.

hmm. At £6 postage I'm not sure I want to order a larger size to try ... off to look at photo on blog again!

Ooops, should have said thanks, Anni!

I also find the sizing weird - never order from them on line as a result.
I am 10/12 on top and last time I had a trying on session in there I liked the look of tops/dresses ranging from small to large!

I agree - completely bonkers!

I'm 5'10 and a genuine size 8/10 and need a medium in their s/m/l sizes. So, that's off. However in their sized garments, I take an 8 top and 10 bottom.

Basically, if you can try them on instore, do. They have some really specific (weird!) cuts that would be tight on some shapes and loose on others. I love COS but have tried some stuff on in then that makes me look like a tramp. Nice quality tramp, but tramp.

It put me off ordering from them again, having to pay the sodding £6 twice.
And wait over 2 months for a refund hmm

shock 2months for a refund? That's dreadful!

I tried it on again this morning, and any bigger will be too big so I'm keeping it as is.

I agree, the sizing is random. You're taking a risk ordering without trying on.
