I am a 14/16 and want to get a light down jacket and heatech t-shirt .

M or L?

I’m a 12 and wear a medium in tops from there. You’d want large or possibly extra large for a jacket if you want space for something underneath.

I’m a 12 to 14 and I wear M

So I’m a similar size and had to get XL- even XXL. The L was too tight and too short, had to get XL. I’m 5’7 and a 14 too and 12 bottom. They come up small.

XL! Heaven forbid! blush

NoSquirrels Sun 11-Feb-18 21:07:11

I’d say L. 12-14 would be M.

XL if you have boobs, and or a regular length body.

I'm a 14 or 16 depending on the shop and I'm an XL in Uniqlo. Puts me off going there tbh!

The down jackets are cut small - they’re so warm you need nothing much on under, but if you want to layer then do size up, I reckon.

I'm a 10/12 and I usually wear M but I do find their sizing a bit random.

I'm size 8/10 and go up a size in the Heattech, as I don't want them skintight, so buy M, otherwise I usually wear S.

definitely XL for the coat - I'm a 14 and the L was a bit snug, they have tiny japanese sizing. Definitely go up a size. All of my jumpers from there are XL apart from one in large which I wear tight, tucked into high waisted trousers. The heat tech you'll get away with a large as they are stretchy. Weirdly I find their bras really large fitting though compared to the rest of their clothes!

XL i’m afraid.
I am a similar size to you OP. You just have to man up.

XL and snip out the labels smile

hugoagogo Mon 12-Feb-18 10:08:18

Xl the sizes are small

TheTurnOfTheScrew Mon 12-Feb-18 10:11:06

I find the sizes run small for knitwear, less so for coats.
I am size 12-14 on top, 14-16 arse
I wear XL for knitwear, but my wool coat is a medium.
You'll want at least an L, possibly XL.

Oddbutnotodd Mon 12-Feb-18 15:21:45

Definitely an XL for the coat. I'm a 14 and the L is fairly close fitting; you don't want to look like an over stuffed sausage! L for heat tech, I wear a medium.

In Uniqlo, I find I prefer tops a size up, but bottoms a size down.
