Are they generous? Stingy? Just right?

They all differ- best thing is to look at the garment measurements.

I have found skirts to be generous and trousers to be just right (size 10). Tops are generous, imo.

The new review feature has helped me heaps! They seem quite honest and it has prevented me from making a few time wasting mistakes.

I have found them particularly generous this year. I would consider myself to be an 8-10. i normally wear 8 skirts and 8 or 10 trousers depending on shop and 10 or 12 up top to accomodate boobs. I ordered some Boden stuff in the sale and the size 8 trousers were way too big as was the size 10 top. Only things I could keep were the size 8 skirts which are about right but a little big.

The tops are always far too short in overall length. They are also particularly short from shoulder to under the breast-bone which is a major pain as with many of the current styles - I've just had to return the crinkle top for this reason and had to return a knitted dress last year for same reason.

idling- it depends on your body shape- the tops are always fine/long on me- I am 5' 3" and quite petite.

Yes 'Girlnextdoor' I suppose it does but I am a 12 top and 10 bottom and 5'7'' so hardly a giant.
