Just wondering how the sizes come up at these stores? Thank you!

with baukjen I am a 14/16 and usually size up to 16 as some things can be clingy.

I find Baukjen really mixed and have to guess - eg trousers come up very big, some dresses (maxi / midi styles in particular) come up very big, but I agree tops can be clingy.

Monki can be quite oversize on me and Other Stories is fairly true to size, some times a little on the small size all depending on the cut of the clothing

Thanks all! Any more thoughts on this, please? 🤞🏼

If between sizes I would suggest sizing up & other stories

I've recently had a couple of dresses from Monki - I'd say true to size if not a little on the larger side. But the style of dresses weren't fitted so hard to tell, really.

& Other Stories are on the skimpier end of true to size, Baukjen dresses are a slim fit but the rest of the range is pretty much average.

Monki can be huge, I am HH cup and have to wear a size 16 to accommodate it and recently had to return a size Large Monki jumpsuit as it was massive on the top and gaped everywhere. Monki are great with returns though and I have been impressed with the quality.

I’m a U.K. 10, and in Monki buy small in dresses or tops. I got some jeans recently which are 28 waist.

Other Stories I get a small in knitwear or t-shirts, but have sometimes sized up to a 12 in dresses, depending on the cut - I am quite hippy.

Never bought anything in Baujken.
