They come up quite large. I usually buy a size down in Monsoon.

I find them a similar fitting to Debenhams if that helps at all.

I am reliably a 14 in Debenhams but can vary from 12 to 16 elsewhere depending on what and where. All my clothes from Monsoon are 14 and fit well.

No, no, no! Depends what it is. I am a size 14 everywhere else. Their trousers are enormous on me. The dresses, however, often come up small around the bust and waist - ie. I cant zip up that side zip bit - but they are big around the bum and hips. Their sizing is totally odd.
