Does anybody know what & Other Stories sizing is like? I'm usually a size 12, occasionally a 10. I get confused with European sizes, wasn't sure whether to go for a 38 or 40. I thought 40 was a 12, but I've seen a 38 as a 12 sometimes.
I'm a pear shaped 10-12 and I don't like things to feel tight. I take a Small or 36 if things are loose or oversized, for fitted knitwear I'm a medium, in trousers/jeans or fitted dresses (eg fixed waist) a 38. Your miles may vary but I hope that helps.
By the way, delivery is six quid and returns can takes ages so if you can try something on to get a feel for their sizings I would recommend it!
10/12 is 38 in Northern Europe (and, confusingly, 40 in France and 44 in Italy), but Stories clothes can be huge. A local blogger here bought sweaters in XS (she's 34/36) and she was still swamped. I have a 38 size dress from them and it is a size too big. I'm normally a perfect 38 but Stories is owned by H&M and their sizing tends to be inconsistent (COS...).
