Me&em sizing

Does anyone have experience with me&em? Looking at a lovely blouse, model wears 8 (she's teeny tiny) but says generous fit so if petite size down. I am petite but nothing like model and yet if I size down I'd take the same size. I've had a bit of bad experience with this in general, model wears S but I need the xs despite being bigger than model confused (not with me&em) Are they pinning models into clothes I wonder?! Anyway, any me&em advice appreciated.

I haven't tried the tops but have a few pairs of their jogger style trousers. I'm normally a 12 in jeans/trousers but in me&em I had to send the more relaxed fit ones back and order a 10!

OK, that would tie in with the v slim model in the size 8 (I have friends a size 6 that aren't so slim). I can get swamped in on fitted tops, which this is, do wanted to check.. Thank you for that. They do have some lovely stuff but it's pricey!

Actually looking again at the model, I do think that they've possibly pinned it in a little... Could they do that I wonder? Using the model they think best to show it off? Take a look

I should have said above 'which this isn't*'

I'm not sure but looking at the photos, it does look a large fit - if I was buying I'd try the 10 (I'm 10/12 on top).

OK I think I will go for the 8 and keep my fingers crossed. What colouring do you need for lemon to suit?!

I'm sure all companies pin the clothes to make them look / hang the best. I ordered a dress from Hush that looked fairly fitted on the website but even sizing down it turned out to be a big boxy sack.

Very annoying. No point saying 'Model wears S' if she's pinned in to it, as that is supposed to be a point of reference! You're right it's probably wide spread. Has the same with Sezane.

I've had it with a Gap order today. V slim model wears slim fit joggers, size S. I order same in S.... Massive, big around bum and stomach... So bloody annoying.

I don't look at what the model is wearing though. I just get my normal size.

Me&Em is normal size although trousers are super long and tops are too short in the body for me. I am a 10 and buy a 10 from there.

When it's small or extra small I look for a reference point, otherwise what's the point of telling us what model wears etc. If we could depend on a 10 actually being a 10 that would be great but there's so much difference in sizing between companies. Good to know tho re Me&Em. Really annoyed about Gap!!
