Ordered a dress i liked online from New look,it arrived this morning, I am a size 10, everything i have that fits is size 10 I cant even get this dress over my head, it jhas no zipp or fasteners, the sleeves are so narrow i wouldnt get my arms in them Wondering if the wrong size has been put on it, To look at it it looks more like a 10 year olds So disappointed, will have to return it, and hope they have a larger size,
I had a dress delivered from Whistles the other day from JL. I'd tried the S on instore and it neatly fitted so I knew the M should be fine. Like you, couldn't get it over my head. I was annoyed as I'd paid for premium delivery which they wouldn't refund as the size on the dress was M.
I can take it to the store here, to return but not sure if it was just an online offer, i will have to find out and if so order 2 sizes larger ,a12 and a 14 Hate buying clothes at the best of times, as i am just under 5ft tall, and most are too long, and a lot are young styles ,and im not young any more lol Even M&S short are not short anymore Need a new coat too, but dread going looking for one,that doesnt bury me,at a reasonable price
It's never consistent Iv had a 12,14,16,18 all fit
Iv had the same thing in the same size but one fitting and the other not. When I do find something though I tend to like it and it's lasted quite well although it's been at least a couple of years since I found anything Iv actually liked from there!
