I find it pretty standard tbh - remember that its scandi sizing not European, so a 36 is a 10. I'd be surprised if a 36 wasn't adequate, if you're a 8-10 in UK. I'm a 12 atm and a solid 38 - although I have a couple of things in 36 that still fit fine.
Variable. I'm an 8 on top and 10 on the bottom. I've got a dress in 36 that fit fits on the hip but slightly big up top (shirt dress). Tried on a dress in 34 that was way too big. Have a white midi dress in 36 that is just a tad too tight around the ribcage.
I find it variable as well - I'm a 12 so their 38 fits in most things (jersey tops and dresses, skirts, etc), unless they have buttons up the front in which case apparently all bets are off. I have a shirt in a 40, and two shirt dresses where I had to go up to a 42 to get them to button over my boobs without gaping. I mentioned this to the sales assistant and she said "ah yes, they're Scandinavian" (do Scandinavians not have breasts?). I do like their stuff but definitely need to try on.
i always thought a 38 was a 10? I recently bought a jumper in the sale in M, which the size guide says is a 14/16, and it is a bit boxy on me as a 10/12, but definitely would not fit a U.K. 16. I have other jumpers from there in S which are bigger. So yes, variable!
