Topshop jeans - different batches, different sizing?
pre-dc3, I was easily fitting a pair of size 12 Baxters with some room to spare. During my pregnancy, I stupidly let a friend wear them for a night out ... she hung on to them and made them her 'everyday' jeans and faded the knees to white/ generally trashed them. She bought me a new pair of her own accord and gave them to me as a pressie when the baby was born . Of course I haven't bothered to go near them for the last 5 months but am now just a few pounds off my pre-preg weight so gave them a whirl and they barely go over my knees! A friend of mine said that she had exactly the same thing happen and marched into Topshop wearing one pair and brandishing the other but is she just trying to spare my feelings???!! has anyone else had this? Is it possible that all my weight has just totally redistributed to my knees (looking at my bum I know this to not be true) or are my scales (gasp) wrong?
I used to work in the Fashion Industry and we used to manufacture for Top Shop. Such huge concerns will usually use more than one manufacturer to make the same product, so they will have their own pattern. Even if measuremets are to Top Shop's spec, angles of rises etc may be slightly different, which will make for a different fit.
The washcare lable will usually have a manufacturers number on, so if your two pairs have different ID numbers, likely to be two different manufacturers.
I have the same problem!!!! I always wore size 10's pre preg (about 18 months ago) I'm now back to my normal weight & measurments yet can't get their latest size 10's past my thighs, I am convinced they are making them smaller. I've measured there newer size 10's and they measure as classic size 8's (26 inch waist)
