Anyone got a view on Great Plains sizing? Do they come up big or small.....?

DaisyWhoooo Thu 04-Oct-07 09:24:01

Small. At least that's what I keep telling myself grin

The skirts are quite roomy. I wear medium tops and 10 skirts. But am probably a 12 bottom and 14 top in other shops (apart from Marks&Spencer which seems to have the most bizarre approach to upper body sizing).
Lovely stuff in there. OUr local branch is closing down so picked up lovely summer skirts for next year.
Love their cardigans and wrap tops.

okay in most places am a 10 top, and vary between 8 and 10 bottom (depending on shop...) So dress size?

I tend to find them generous compared to many! I am usually 10-12 and always buy 10 in Great Plains...

Definitely safe with a 10.
Have to admit have never bought trousers from GP, and I do find that with skirts I fit into smaller sizes than trousers, generally.

I love great plains. Really sad that the store near me is closing, but still have the internet I suppose. I do like trying on things, and generally feeling them before I buy though. Hey ho.

Okay a 10 it is - I am quite short (about 5' 2") so length should be okay....

Boycodd Thu 04-Oct-07 12:47:18

I have found us Warmth

on the sweater dress thread

Mixed. I got into one pair of trousers that were 10 the rest had to be 12. I'm an 11.

okay plus points - fastest delivery ever - ordered thurs arrived today!
Negative - cr*p quality IMHO. I ordered sale stuff and would have been well peed off if I had paid full price.
Dress - cheap nasty cotton. cr*p stitching and sizing - am a 10, went small and couldn't get the thing to meet in the middle - and whilst I have reasonable sized norks they ain't that big....
Cardi - okay - not what I expected, but for th money I'll keep...
Wouldn't buy full price, not impressed....

defo small

skirmish Fri 05-Oct-07 20:53:43

weird - used to work for gp and alway found it to have generous sizing - agree on the crap quality thing though

Blackduck Fri 05-Oct-07 20:54:22

agree defo small (cardi was medium and whilst long in arms doesn't exactly swamp me...)

inamuckingfuddle Fri 05-Oct-07 20:55:00

oops, must read latest post before replying blush blackduck I had a similar experience in the spring, ordered trousers that didn't even cover my bum, despite havin checked measurements and fitting the same size in many other shops, I don't shop there anymore

Blackduck Fri 05-Oct-07 20:57:31

agree- won't do it again...grin
