Gap Modern Bootcut Trousers - please tell me the sizing is madness
Gap and banana republic sizing is utter madness and completely unpredictable. Generally yes they come up large. But not always. I've bought the same style in different colours and there have been 2 inches difference all over. It is just pot luck ....
I've got some but they were so cheap I can't be bothered to schlep back to the shopping centre to return them. They are weirdly tight all the way down to the knee and that was the 16 - I'm normally a 14. Keeping them in case I lose a few lbs. I once went in and tried on all the black stretchy trousers variations and the sizing varied hugely.
