Mint Velvet Leggings - Sizing Help Please

(8 Posts)

After a quick search on here for the best leggings, it looks like Mint Velvet get rated highly.

I'm about to order a couple of pairs, but not sure what their sizing is like as have never ordered anything from there before. I've looked at their guide, and I fall between M-L.

I'm a size 14 in most places (Next, M&S, Joules) but am 9wks pg with DC2 so now I'll not be staying that size for too long ! Should I just go for the 'Large' do you think? I don't want them baggy on the knees though...

Also, does anyone have a voucher code for new customers I could use pretty please? I've googled for voucher codes and only found one for free delivery.

TIA for any help! smile

I'd go for a L if I were you. But if it is free returns (I think it is???) then why not order both sizes?

Don;t have a voucher code, I;m afraid....

If you set up a Quidco online shopping account, they get you 7% cash back on all purchases.

I'm a 14 and find the large too big. But apparently the medium is really tight on the calves? Haven't tried yet as unsure if sturdy legs will squeeze ingrin

Not much help, but do report how you get on...?

Hmm, ok, seems they're out of stock of the Large in grey, so perhaps I'll order those in medium and black in large. Not quite sure what colour 'storm' is meant to be confused

Will look into Quidco - thanks wildthings

I am short and size 8 -10 , curvy though . I bought the smallest size .

So they arrived yesterday, 24hrs after ordering. Well packaged. Impressed with the service.

My stats: 5ft 7", 11st, curvy size 14.

The Medium are tiny ! Managed to squeeze one leg in but was laughing too much to even try the second leg.

The Large fit lovely. Quite snug/firm around the thighs but that's good as feel they give me a nice shape. They come up quite high, so hold my wobbly belly in nicely wink

They are much thicker than cheapie ones, can feel the quality. Will be keeping these smile

Thanks for reporting back - I am pretty much exactly your size, so you have saved me trying the medium grin
