I bought a pair of jeans from the Indigo range today, size 14, £19.50. I couldn't get the zip to meet, never mind up.

At work I was wearing a pair of M&S £12 jeans, size 14, and they're too big.

Now I'm presuming I didn't put a stone on within an hour. So sort out your sizing!

Ooh! Can I join in? Not about sizing but about your "quality worth every penny". Why does a dress from your overpriced Autograph range have a seam allowance of precisely half a millimetre so that as soon as you sit down in the dress the seam right down the front splits? And before you start, it did fit me properly, I got it replaced and decided to test the seam with my fingers. I was able to pull it apart with hardly any pressure. And when I returned the second dress to the shop (after buying it on line because it's easier) why did the oldbag-- assistant grumble "quality control issue" without so much as an apology and shove a credit note in my hand. I wanted my money back.

Sort out your quality!

Feel better now grin Hope I haven't hijacked too much coco

Yes, their sizes vary wildly. I've had the same experience as you.
