Some of you lovely ladies said previously this leather jacket gives/stretches on wearing. Just wondering by how much?? Im choosing between two sizes. One I'd say is slightly on the tight size and the other probably a tad too big but actually looks more like the fit on the model (as in how it fits/how big it is, not that i look like the model grin)

Thanks hendricks! Did yours stretch by much?

I went for a 14 although I'm a 12 in their cargo jacket but that was very much so I could wear it over jumpers. Because it was already loose, it hasn't stretched if that makes sense? It does up comfortably but a 12 would have been fine.

I’m a 12 (busty) and I went for the 12. It’s perfect for me, with jumpers, tshirts or shirts.

I’ve got a pink leather from All Saints which I got in a 10 and that is perfect for over dresses, thinner tops.

Go for the slightly tighter one. I’m a 10, bought an 8 in a Conroy and its a bit snug but not strained on the sleeves or anything. The shop assistnt told me that she’s had customers buying a second jacket as the jacket in their usual size became too big!

I just think it comes up big and stretches.

Thank you all!

Just to add I’ve just bought a Bales in the sale after seeing All Saints jackets recommended so much here, and I love it so much, my first leather jacket at the age of 39! I went for an 8 and I can be between an 8 and a 10, more fitted looking on me than on the model.
