Lindy Bop dresses
« on: 06 Aug 15 / 07:07 PM »
Hey ladies! Have any of you had any dresses from Lindy Bop (specifically speaking, the Ophelia dress)?

I'm really confused by their sizing chart as if I go by my measurements it puts me as a size 22, but in every other brand I'm a 16 or 18!

Are they crazily small or am I missing something?  *stars* help!

Older/vintage styles tend to be sized smaller. Also, many high street brands have 'vanity sizing'. There's no real standard in the industry, so you've probably noticed one brands size 16 is another's size 18 or 20.

Jack get said that, it depends on your shape. If you're a little bit hourglass shaped, then try a size or 2 down. I tend to buy a size smaller then the measurements say with Lindy Bop as their measurements are quite generous. I prefer the dresses more fitted than their measurements allow. If you're a bit more thick waisted (for want of a better term!) then go without larger size. They do depend on a more hourglass figure. If you're going to wear a girdle, buy a size down again.

Thanks my dear! I don't know why I said I'm a 16/18 coz I looked in my wardrobe and everything is a 14 or 16, doing myself a diservice!! I am very hourglass so as long as they are cut for a busty shape I should be fine with a smaller size. I was driving myself potty looking at the sizing chart. Maybe I'm just rubbish at measuring myself!

Yeah I have little to no waist and I find that I need the bigger size. If you are an hourglass then (a) I WANT TO BE YOU ;) and (b) you can probably go down a size no probs.

Thanks TabithaBlue - I'm pretty sure you have plenty of physical attributes I'd like - for instance the ability to wear jeans and a tshirt without my whole body looking the width of my boobs!

Update: I went for the 16 in the Ophelia style and it was more than big enough on the boobs, more like an 18 and it fits snugly but nicely on the waist (better since I cut out sweets for a couple of weeks and lost an inch or two!) I'd go along with saying that they are true to your usual size if you're an hourglass shape.
