Can anyone help me with sizing please?
I ordered a swimsuit in a bra size, as it was in the sale I bought my sister size of the chest larger and cup smaller. The swimsuit arrived, and is beautiful, only problem is it is far too tight around the chest. I ended up measuring it, it's 7 inches smaller than the chest size with give. Is this normal? The company I have bought it through are being a little difficult about replacing it. TIA

That doesn't sound right at all.

If you bought it online, I'm pretty sure that you have the right to refund it under Distance Selling Regulations.

Look up distance selling act though it's changed to consumerent contracts or similar. 7 days under distance selling to cancel the order. Just quote that to them. What brand was the swimsuit? I find they varyou so much in size. Tried a sized curvy Kate bikini a year ago and could barely fasten even though it was the right size . I've had a bra in the same size so should have been right in theory. This year I bought a freya cossie with a bra inside and tbh it's much bigger and looser. I expect in bikinis they are made tighter for a bit more security iykwim? Though it shouldn't be that much smaller! Its just really tricky I think it's a case of trying out loads. If you could get to a department store it would be easier. Debenhams often have a good range.
