La Redoute

Just wondered if anyone has ordered from La Redoute and what the quality, sizing etc is like.

I'm looking online now and I like quite a few tops, cardis for everyday wear. Never ordered from them before though so I'm a bit unsure...

I have ordered from them twice. And have been disappointed both times. The quality is not as good as I'd hoped and somehow things aren't quite as described. Wouldn't order from them again tbh.

Good for tops. I've got a lot of tshirts and linen shirts from them and have always been happy. You get loads of freebies from them as well <<shallow>.

Sizing - small.

Quality - varied.

I find they send you 14 million promotional letters a year, which is bloody annoying. Usually full of discount codes, though, which is useful.

I cancelled my contract with them years ago, and though I like some of their clothes it's not been enough to tempt me back.

sizing very unreliable. Quality varies. Dont use them anymore because of this. Vertbaudet a fave though.

I got a jumper a about 18mths ago. Looked great in the catalogue (my monster in law has it) and it washed terribly.

I would defo go elsewhere.

quality varies, but i have got some really beautiful things from there on sale, esp eveningwear which people always comment on when i wear them. also some of their baby clothes are very nice and good quality.

They photograph better than they turn out to be. The clothes aren't made to last and the sizing is small.

I got a load of summer stuff for dd last year and it was great. AFAICS it comes up slightly large. Washes fine. Looks like it does in the catalogue. Mind you, that's kid's stuff. Never tried the adult stuff.
