Can anyone give me an idea what uniqlo down jackets (not the lightweight ones) are like for sizing please? I'm 12-14 hourglass. Biggish boobs and hips. No idea whether I need medium or large there as not got any branches in this part of uk. Any advice much appreciated.
I tried on recently (one of the knee length kind). I am around 14 on top and 12 on bottom and also tall. The medium did up fine and looked better on the bottom half, but probably not enough room for a jumper underneath. The large was better on top and bit too roomy on the bottom. I was undecided and left it for now. Sorry that's not more helpful!
The quality has seriously deteriorated in the past few years. I bought one around 4 years ago and it’s still going great guns, but I fancied a longer length one, so went to have a look. The material used now is completely different and doesn’t look the same quality. If you read the reviews online many seem to agree!
