Hello
Always find good work dresses, jackets, flattering and fashionable at M&S.

Have the sizes got smaller or is it just me? Im bigger after having baby (working on it).. 169cm, 84kg and small waist/hour glass shape.
I'm a 14 everywhere else but at M&S was squeeIng into a 16.

Anybody else found this?

Can't say I have, and M&S are known for vanity sizing too. It may be more of a shape issue than purely a size one - I find most stores are cutting for the straight up and down look these days, and it's extremely difficult to get clothes cut properly for a true hourglass shape.

I think their sizing is generally big. I'm a 12 and usually need a ten in M&S work skirts and last year had to buy a couple of size 8s in dresses and tops. Then again, it's v inconsistent.
