What's Sainsbury's Tu sizing like?

Been hearing great things about their jeggings. The picture of a rake thin model on the site says she wears a 12, so are they small and I should size up? I am a 12 in M and S jeggings and a 14-16 elsewhere! Also they don't do multiple length. I usually wear sort of large petite range trousers or small normal range, iyswim. 30 inch leg. Would they be too long?

They are generously sized.

I take a 14 in m&s and 16 elsewhere.
I get a 16 in sainsburys. I thought they did short and long sizes? Maybe that’s just in their jeans. I think a 14 might be too long in the leg then if you’d normally take a short.
You can always return!

I find their sizing in trousers, jeans and legging inconsistent. I bought the same pair in 3 colours. 2 fitted fine in the 10, 1 pair not even the 12 fitted.

Not sure about their sizing but apparently their 25% off all clothing starts on the 24th Oct if you can wait for then.

I buy a 10/12 usually and a 10 in Sainos.

I love their clothes and it makes up a huge chunk of my wardrobe!

Generous. I can't fit into their clothes sad

Maudlinmaud Tue 17-Oct-17 11:51:24

Inconsistent like everywhere else I'm afraid.
I have 8s that are too big and bought an 8 summer dress that wouldn't zip up. But I normally think they are generally big fitting

ImminentDisaster Tue 17-Oct-17 11:52:33

I'd say on the generous side too.

PolkaDottyRose Tue 17-Oct-17 11:54:05

I bought jeans from Tu that I bought another pair, exact same jeans, same size..completely different fit.

Youcanstayundermyumbrella Tue 17-Oct-17 11:54:36

Completely random. I'm a size 16 on top and bought a nice flannel shirt there in a size 22 as I wanted it to be big and baggy, and they didn't have an 18 or 20. It doesn't do up...

DaisyRaine90 Tue 17-Oct-17 12:01:13

Generous but not as generous as George at ASDA

OnionShite Tue 17-Oct-17 12:25:21

Thanks. I may have to go in person then, and will definitely take the tip about the 25% discount!

I must say also, I've found George at Asda to be quite variable also. I have two pairs of jeggings from the same style, both a size 16. One is too big and one too tight! Maybe it's just a cheapish clothes thing, Primarni are the same.

I wear a 12 in M&S jeans. I have a fitted dress from Tu in a 14 and its a perfect fit.

I would go for a 14. I get what you mean. Sometimes petite is too short on me and regular too long Tu stuff is generous in length. The dress I have is midi on the model and maxi on me.

I am anything between a 12 and a 16 and I also have a 30" inside leg.

Tops general quite generous, then you get one that’s tiny! Trousers quite tight around the legs I find, but jeans are better. I take a 16-18 most places, sains tops I can get a 14, trousers/jeans a 16. Dresses I get a 14/16 there dependent on style/stretch of the material.

MomToWedThorFriday Tue 17-Oct-17 12:46:07

And I find Asda tiny!

Generous but in my experience quite a few items from there have shrunk despite washing correctly. Maybe I've just been unlucky.

Tanfastic Tue 17-Oct-17 18:36:31

I get a lot of my clothes from Sainsbury's and I think it depends what you buy. I'm normally a 12-14 but if it's a blouse I'd have to go for size 14 as I've got big boobs. Stretchy tops and jumpers, easily a 12. I recently bought a pair of grey skinny jeans and 14 fit perfectly.

CallarMorvern Tue 17-Oct-17 22:48:21

I'm a 12-14 (5'10) most places and I buy mainly 14r skinny jeans from Tu, though I have some size 10 Tu straight cut and 12 Tu kickflares! Tops I'm mainly a 12, but the gym tops never fit, too baggy under arm, (I'm a 14 in Primarks close fitted scoop necks and vests). I love Tu though, have lots from there.

Generous. Which is why I shop there grin

Asdas sleeves are minescule.

I bought jeans from Tu that I bought another pair, exact same jeans, same size..completely different fit.

Yes me too, I bought a pair one week and loved them so bought the same the following week, they are completely different despite the same 'style and fit' label, they're even a slightly different colour indigo, it's very strange, one is much stretchier than the other too. They both fit so it's not a big deal but I will always try on in future.

Tops I find are true to size for me and fit well. can't wait for the next 25% off as I have my eye on some leather ankle boots.
