This is what I am doing but I am worried about ASOS selling out of the size I need. I have sent back the coat now to exchange- I didn't realise but only found out when I emailed, they wont refund the next-day-delivery (despite the sizing being way too small!-their error?) if I send back for an exchange, they will when processed, send back out the replacement the same method I originally used (next day) so I wont have to pay twice or wait for a month for it to arrive (10 working days to process, 10 working days to send out = 1 month) --I hope its faster anyway!!
Just hope the next size up is enough. I had been worried about the legnth across the back but its actually the arms that are too short! About 2 inches away from my wrist!
oOh ok hope it fits ok! I've never found them to take that long to exchange before if that is any consolation! But they do vary depending on times of year - but I don't think the Christmas rush has started yet
Am jealous! Its so cold out there and my jacket just isn't keeping me warm to put it mildly! I may look chic but I certainly don't feel it! Am hoping ASOS process this thing fast and that I get a replacement back by next Saturday....Oh how I wish I had gone on my gut feeling and gotten the size up!
Well, in my recommendation, don't do this with ASOS- unless they have sent me a Petite by accident it was very very tight.
Its normally warm in shops as the staff, who dont get to wear a coat, scarf, hat etc. dont like to freeze whilst at work. Its even worse in the smaller shops as the door opening/closing causes such a draft !
Went into London to try on several coats today from highstreet through to designer ranges (Selfridges!) and was quite suprized at how some coats in my size fitted perfectly, others I needed to go up 2 sized and some I needed a size down!
I guess its a really hard question I have asked and depends on the store and how their clothes fit as much as anything else. Really wish there were uniform sizes across the board but know from my own Uni education, until women stop wanting to be a dress size smaller, this will never happen.
Ooops, sorry, forgot about the staff :rotfl:
