I have given up on Next years ago for clothes for myself. However did go in there today and got fabby casual shoes for remainder of "summer" for £20.00 and new 2 new bras including a funky purple one.

Oh and envy at the size 10s being massive, I'm never going to be in that situation, so finding it hard to russle up the necessary sympathy.

I always had that problem with Boden- size 10 trousers far too tight, size 12 too massive. Buy Gap now instead of Boden and Next

Would have normally agreed with you - but yesterday I brought some dark jeans for 20 quid (non-sale, new stock) which are fab - have a high'ísh waist (not like Cheryl Cole etc) and really hold everything in. Just hoping they stretch a bit cos maybe a tad tight on the bum - but for 20 pounds.....

Have also found their boyfriend fit jeans v good - but sizes are massive so great to be a size 10 for a change!

Weird as I always used to find their jeans a terrible fit.

Next really should sort out their consistency re sizing tho!

I find next varies depending on the style. I am anything between a 10 and 14 in there!!
Got size 12 petite trousers which came nowhere near doing up. Next size up, too large. Dress, size 12 like a tent!! I have large norks. Whats going on?!! It wasn't a smock style either...
