Hello.. I am buying a Desigual coat online with the aim of getting into it when baby is born. I am usually a 12-14 in coats but hoping to buy the 14. Is sizing small ? Many Thanks.

I find there sizing can be a touch on the big size/true to size so I would think a 14 is fine.

Actually as an owner of 4 coats and several dresses/skirts I find their sizing to be completely random. I have a selection of medium,L, XL and a 44 and I am size 14/16. There is no way of telling

I would second going for a 14. Watch the buttons on their coats as they fall off easily less chance if they aren't pulled too tight on their more fitted coats.

At that price that is crazy isn't it.. for buttons to be loose. I have had a lot of luck with Primark macs/coats over the past couple of years but always strengthen the buttons up before first wear so maybe will do this. Thanks again.

I love their stuff but only have a couple of tops, as generally I find the sizing very small. I too am very jealous.

I have one skirt - it is a L. I am a size 14. It's not huge on me.
