Have stocked up my shopping basket but as I've never even heard of them let alone bought from them before I wouldn't mind knowing what the sizing is like. Alot of the tops are 10/12 or 14/16. I'm a size 12 normally! Help!

I am 10 and usually find their 10-12s too big

they aren't great quality though (as you may have guessed from the prices) - def closer to Primark than Boden, and probably not even as good as Dorothy Perkins.

I am a fan of Peacocks and I think the sizes are pretty big tbh.

I tired on a top the other day in my size - far too tight on the sleeves (to the point of almost stopping circulation) yet far too big everywhere else. But then I'm ann odd shape!wink

choc - tend to be on teh big side, so a 10/12 should be fine.

As MrsB said, their stuff isnt' great quality, but if you accept hat when you buy it, its fine! I tend to buy bits that I know I won't be wearing in a year (love their shoes, too)
