Bugger - do Next sizes come up very small?

Just ordered a jacket from them and am now worried it will come up small. Too late to cancel the order .............

No, I find them quite roomy generally. Hope it fits perfectly for you!

BeautifulBatman Wed 22-Jul-15 10:44:53

I order from the tall section but they tend to come up on the generous side imo.

RoaldFarl Wed 22-Jul-15 10:54:56

Ooh - sounds hopeful then. Also ordered a tall so maybe it'll be ok.

BeautifulBatman Wed 22-Jul-15 10:55:53

You should be fine then!

They come up huge IME! I can fit into an 8 in Next whereas I'm a 10-12 everywhere else.

BeautifulBatman Wed 22-Jul-15 10:59:38

Vanity sizing at its best grin

They usually come up on the big side.

RoaldFarl Wed 22-Jul-15 11:21:09

Praise the Lord for vanity sizing!!

Sixpencenonethericher Wed 22-Jul-15 11:34:28

Yeah size smaller in next

Greengardenpixie Wed 22-Jul-15 12:10:32

sorry but their jackets can be small. Tight on sleeves esp.

CeeceeBloomingdale Wed 22-Jul-15 12:54:10

So many people say they come up big but I find the opposite and I'm convinced its due to body shape not me being in denial. I'm Apple shaped and next is not for me. Pair shapes seem to do very well with smaller sizes there

I find they're entirely unpredictable! Some items too small some miles too big. Bought the same style trousers in two different colours last weekend needed two different sizes! Even the assistant commented on it!

RoaldFarl Wed 22-Jul-15 13:49:25

No, no, no - I am a busty apple and now I am worried. <Holds hands over ears and goes la, la, la>

RainbowFlutterby Wed 22-Jul-15 13:51:15

Bloody hell - I'm a size 14 in Next and 10-12 everywhere else!!!


JohnCusacksWife Wed 22-Jul-15 14:18:06

Next comes up massive ime. I'm wearing a size 8 jacket from them today which, sadly, I am not!

WorldsBiggestGrotbag Wed 22-Jul-15 14:27:40

Roald I'm a busty apple too and they come up huge on me!

Marmaladybird Wed 22-Jul-15 14:38:40

I find them a good fit apart from trousers. I have a pair of wide leg trousers in a 14 which are MASSIVE (about to send back) but their size 14 jeans are very snug.

hugoagogo Wed 22-Jul-15 14:42:35

I find it varies too.

RoaldFarl Wed 22-Jul-15 14:42:50

Blimey - hope you're following this thread Next. Sort your sizes out!

Elsashmelsa Wed 22-Jul-15 14:51:47

Yep - all different sizes as far as I'm concerned.

Just ordered 6 pairs of jeans in the sale. 2 pairs in a 12 way too baggy (even on the waist) other 4, couldn't do them up on the waist! Crazy...

Biscetti Wed 22-Jul-15 15:58:54

I can be anything from a 10 to a 16 in Next. So far from uniform sizing it's ridiculous. I'm a 12 pretty much everywhere else.

SchroSawMargeryDaw Wed 22-Jul-15 16:35:45

I am a very busty top hourglass and Next come up huge imo.

Greengardenpixie Wed 22-Jul-15 16:40:54

Sizes ARE erratic with next. I am a 12 in some trousers and jeans and some i cant get on. Some 12's are tiny, some are fine. The two jackets i have had out of next are small made [ read the reviews at the time]. Its a hit or a miss.

LikeASoulWithoutAMind Wed 22-Jul-15 16:47:07

Oh I find Next sizes very consistent and flattering - I am always an 8 in tops/dresses/skirts and a 10 in trousers/shorts.

They are definitely on the roomy side.
