Last time i was in zara the sizing was tiny. Despite being a size 12 or even a 10 sometimes in other shops, i found i had to buy a large! Is it still the same? Was considering a coat as they are such good prices. I am losing weight atm and hope to be a 10/12 again. Will i order a large?

I think Zara sizing is real and not vanity
I am a comfortable 10 almost everywhere else but wear anything that fits in Zara
I am tall and saggy booby and I often need a 14 in tops

Maybe on reflection I have needed an XL in the past! Wish they did reviews on their website! I cba to order and then return. I dislike physical shopping!

Actually reading an old thread totally puts me off ordering. Their stuff is erratically sized at best. Think i will give it a miss!

I love Zara sizing, I find most other places have started madly vanity sizing. Bershka sizing is great too.

Zara sizing is pretty consistent I find and not vanity sizing like everywhere else. I'm a large in Zara.

I have old clothes from my teenage years that are size 14 and no way can it get in them. I'm a 10 at M&S these days, yet I'm a good stone and half heavier than when I was a teenage size 14 hmm

I like their shoes too as they are narrow and don't look like boats on me.

Well i bought a Boden coat in the end. Got 30% off and my £10 voucher so it was only about £120. Not bad for a wool coat.

I'm normally an 8-10 but in Zara I'm usually Medium.
